Fantasy Premier League tips: The men you should make Triple Captain in gameweek

first_img 3. Petr Cech (Arsenal) – If you fancy a risk and going for clean sheets over goals, Cech is your man. Set to play both games, the shot-stopper could grab 12 points across the two matches, plus a bonus point or too, and give you a real boost. 10 1. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) Click the right arrow above to find out our top Triple Captain tips… – He’s the top points scorer in Fantasy Premier League this season, so why on earth wouldn’t you name him as your Triple Captain? He’s going to be coming up against Stoke and Sunderland, which should help his cause. 6. Diego Costa (Chelsea) – Almost certain to start both of the Blues’ games this gameweek, and back in the goals, handing your precious Triple Captain chip to the Brazilian/Spain striker might be wise. 2. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) – Spurs star Kane has two goals and two assists in his last four Premier League games making him a great option for your teams. He might face Manchester United and Leicester City in his two games but, he’s sure to start both matches. He also has the added bonus of being in the hunt for the Golden Boot, and Tottenham’s No.1 penalty taker. 5. Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) – After a two game dry spell, the Belgian was back at it again when City player Crystal Palace. He scored once and got two assists, helping him to 17 points in just one game; if he scores similarly in their matches against Leicester City and West Brom you could be laughing all the way to title glory. 10 10 10 10. Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) – Currently, Sergio Aguero may be unlikely to start against Leicester City, so putting Brazilian starlet Jesus in your team seems like a great option. We’d suggest even if Aguero is fit, the youngster will start at least one of the two games against Leicester and West Brom. It’s a risky pick but it might work. 10 10 Is this the gameweek that will decide an entire season?Fantasy Premier League managers have been preparing for this moment for some time, a huge double gameweek where the chips can be played.One of those most likely to be played is the Triple Captain, especially with Arsenal, Southampton, Chelsea, Leicester, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Sunderland, Watford and West Brom, all playing twice.But who will you pick to treble their points? Click the right arrow above to find out our top tips… 10 10 10 8. Marcos Alonso (Chelsea) – A defender as your Triple Captain, you heard it here first. The Spaniard is the FPL’s top scoring defender and loves a goal, his aerial ability will be important against West Brom, and he may also star against Watford. Clean sheets, assists and goals could make him the dream skipper this gameweek. 9. Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur) – Okay, so Spurs have got a couple of tough games against Manchester United and Leicester City. But if they are going to get goals, the Dane is likely to be giving the assists, or maybe even scoring them. 10 7. Anthony Martial (Manchester United) – Giving your Triple Captain to a Red Devils star is a huge risk following their Europa League clash with Celta Vigo. If we were to pick one player, though, it would be Martial to do damage against Tottenham and Southampton. 4. Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – Across two games, the Belgian will almost certainly grab at least a goal or an assist, and playing West Brom and Watford is only going to increase his chances of a high score. last_img read more
