Gameweek 25 deadline is less than 48 hours away so no time to waste. Let’s consider what captain options do we have. My midweek tips were not good overall, even though I was unlucky with Lukaku. I’ve given him an armband in my team which backfired. Let’s do better in GW25.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 25 captain tips
#1. GW25 captain pick – Sergio Aguero
Once again I am placing Aguero on top of my FPL captain list. He is in a good form right now, and you shouldn’t be afraid to give him an armband against Leicester at home. Foxes tightened up at the back lately, but it will be hard to keep it clean against a potent Man City attack with in-form Aguero leading the line. Huge importance for both teams obviously and I can see City rising to the occasion.
#2. GW25 captain pick – Harry Kane
Kane keeps scoring. Let’s trust him again. He was my captain tip in the last round as well but I am placing him a bit higher on the list now. I am not saying Watford will be an easy opponent, but even if Spurs just manage to edge it 1-0, there is a good chance Kane will put his name on the score-sheet. Especially now with Alli having some health issues. Spurs need this in a title challenge and Kane can bring them points. Hopefully he will bring FPL points to his lucky owners as well.
#3. GW25 captain pick – Alexis Sanchez
Chilean is back on my captain tips list! He returned from injury recently, but he is yet to score. He was close in a match against Southampton, though. I like him to deliver against Bournemouth. He is the best player in Arsenal team and has most FPL potential among Gunners. With Ozil’s form dropping, it is a perfect time for Alexis to take over. Giroud could also be a good choice, but Sanchez has more potential and ability to collect bonus FPL points. He could definitely return big.
#4. GW25 captain pick – Ross Barkley
With uncertainties about Lukaku’s condition, Barkley should be Everton’s main man. He converted two penalties yesterday against Newcastle, rewarding his patient owners. I like him to carry that nice momentum in a game against Stoke. The Toffees will look to revenge their unlucky home loss not so long ago. Stoke was in a much better condition back then. They have injury problems at the back now. Shawcross is unavailable and Wollscheid is a doubt. This can only make things easier for Barkley to do the damage inside the penalty box.
#5. GW25 captain pick – Marko Arnautovic
I was going to place Payet in this spot, but with Forster in a world class form, there isn’t much point. Arnautovic should be a better pick. He blanked in last 3 GW’s, but he was dealing with a minor injury. He did well against Everton in a reverse fixture and I expect him to be ready to lead his team again. This promises to be a high scoring affair so there is a good reason to put two players from this match-up on FPL gameweek 25 captain tips list.
Risky Gameweek 25 captain tips in Fantasy Premier League
There are two players that I considered for my captain list as well, but they couldn’t qualify. Rooney and Vardy are both in good form. However, there is one more thing they have in common in GW25. They both have difficult away matches. While they are almost fixture proof at the moment, I wouldn’t trust them as there are plenty of other options above.
Fantasy Premier League Differential Gameweek 25 captain tips
This week, I want to single out Naismith as the sole differential captain tip for you. He is owned by 1.9% FPL managers at the time I am writing this. He seems to be a good addition for this Norwich team and I like him to do well at Aston Villa. Both teams are in desperate need of points. Villa is just conceding way to many goals and Naismith should be able to exploit any mistake opponent gives him. For more differential tips, read this article.
