Gameweek 36 Preview- Captain Picks
ย 
The double gameweek fixtures dominate our thoughts this week. With strong captaincy picks in the Newcastle forwards – should we also be considering Brighton with the fixtures they have?
ย 
ย 
Wilson ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟย 
Isak ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ชย 
ย 
Isak Vs Wilson is a debate that has raged all week and both are top captain picks. Howe has commented too on the pair playing together;
ย 
โ€œCallum in the No.9 role is an outstanding player. [Playing together] is something I’ll definitely consider.’โ€
ย 
What we can likely expect is neither player to play 180 minutes, with Isak getting more pitch time. However itโ€™s too easy to focus on expected minutes – and this could be a mistake given how explosive Wilson has been off the bench.
ย 
In April, Wilson scored 8 goals, starting only twice for the Magpies. In contrast, Isak played 455 minutes in the same period, hitting the net just 4 times. Wilson is my pick. Just.
ย 
Mitoma ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ตย 
ย 
Donโ€™t fancy choosing between the two? Pick Mitoma. Brighton also have a double, and Mitoma is an incredibly industrious player. Unlucky not to score in the last 3 games he has averaged over ten touches in the box per match. The challenge Mitoma has is two away games facing both Arsenal and Newcastle. They donโ€™t ship goals lightly. Arsenal sit 17th for goals conceded and Newcastle have the stingiest defence in the league.
ย 
๐Ÿ” Top pick this week is Wilson. If you donโ€™t have Wilson and have Isak he has a very close second.

Who will be your #GW36 captain?
