Do you go big and bold and try and enhance your points for the GW and go for Dallas? Or do you go a safer option in Kane or Bamford and get the double figures or are you feeling somewhere in between and taking a punt on someone like Lingard or Raphinha?

Personally I think it’s GW where more defenders or even keepers will be considered for selection.

Easily done. And I'm easily confused :-)

Was doing a poll for this myself earlier but gave up. It really seems a stick a pin in it kind of week. Will probably be Kane for me because he's kind of my default captain at the moment and Villa's luck has to run out sometime. Raphinha is tempting as well.

Teams that have over-performed xG conceded by the biggest margins this year:
  1. Fulham - goals conceded 13; xG conceded 19.72; over-performance 6.72 goals conceded
  2. Villa - goals conceded 14; xG conceded 19.93; over-performance 5.93 goals conceded
Burnley and United are #3 & #4 on that list. Partly it has been GK excellence from Martinez, Areola & Pope but there has surely been some luck involved as well.

Can’t look past Dallas whatsoever. Fulham have done well at the turn of the year, but this game feels like a backs to the wall job, and hopefully worst case scenario, just a clean sheet. Best case scenario, he bags a GC (not a blonde blimp).

With three successive blanks for a team like Leeds, goals are overdue.

Not gonna lie, sitting here watching Spurs struggle, considering the extra time, the travel, the fact they're up against a fairly stubborn Villa defence and Martinez (ex Arsenal so even more determined) I'm really looking to swerve Kane now.

If so, then it's Raphina for me.

Yeah, me too. Am taking a wildish punt on Lewis 'The Goal Machine' Dunk. :P

+1. Despite the loss, they remain the most likely to haul for me.

Currently on Kane where it will most likely stay, but find myself strangely tempted by Lacazette too for some reason.

So apparently the second most popular captaincy pick this week was Fernandes.

He'll probably still outscore my captaincy choice.

It’s true. This is with the 42% of inactive teams removed. Even then the number of players who captained Fernandes and vice captained injured Son, Gundogan, Salah, Vardy, etc. is significant.
