GW17 Preview

Top Captain Picks

1. Philippe Coutinho vs West Brom (home) - £9.0 (TSB 11.0%)

Rested in the Merseyside Derby, the Brazilian magician will be in good shape to add to his 4 goals and 3 assists in his past 2 starts (all competitions).

2. Harry Kane vs Brighton (home) - £12.9 (TSB 39.7%)

A brace last GW makes it 4 in 4 for the Englishman. Against Brighton, who have conceded 7 goals in their past 2 games, expect Kane to add to his 12 goals already this season in GW17.

3. Sergio Aguero vs Swansea (away) - £11.6 (TSB 16.6%)

With 9 goals and 3 assists in only 10 starts this season, Aguero is quietly achieving great returns. Expected to start after being benched in GW16, Aguero will most likely deliver a similar return to the brace he netted in this exact fixture last season.

Punt Captain Picks

1. Roberto Pereyra vs Crystal Palace (away) - £5.8 (TSB 0.1%)

Was on course for FPL returns in GW16 after creating 3 chances and having 1 shot in 43 minutes, but was withdrawn before half-time due to Zeegelaar’s red card. Having only played 45+ minutes once since GW9, Pereyra is fit and ready to build on his GW16 performance in GW17 against the Eagles.

2. Anthony Martial vs Bournemouth (home) - £8.0 (TSB 3.5%)

The Frenchman looked very sharp in the Manchester Derby, where he should have had at least 1 assist. In GW17, he will be looking to add to his 6 goals and 3 assists already this season.  

3. Riyad Mahrez vs Southampton (away) - £8.5 (TSB 5.7%)

With 4 goals and 4 assists in the past 9 GWs, Mahrez is slowly recapturing his 2015/16 season form. Despite only 1 double digit haul in this period, the Algerian has consistently been ticking over his returns tally. A factor that boosts Mahrez’s appeal this GW is that Southampton have only kept 2 home clean sheets all season, and Leicester have only been kept scoreless away from home on 2 occasions all season.
