Best Captain – Aguero – Manchester City vs BrightonEmbed from Getty Images
Okay, so this one is as obvious as they come! Aguero at home, against a team City have played twice, and have a 100% win rate against?! I mean, it doesn’t get much better! Aguero scored 15 goals and got three assists at home last season, and is well on track to challenge that, with three goals and two assists already this campaign.
Of course, if you happen to be one of the 48.2% of people who don’t own Aguero, then you could consider a teammate for this fixture. Or, as an alternative, you could look to Jamie Vardy, who faces a Newcastle team who are yet to get their first win this season. Vardy has two goals and one assist in just 265 minutes played.
Under 10% Ownership Differential Maddison – Newcastle vs LeicesterEmbed from Getty Images
As we’ve discussed Vardy as a possible captain pick, but his teammate James Maddison could also be worth a mention as an under 10% differential pick. Maddison has got three goals and one assist in 476 minutes over six games. Maddison is just £6.7m in price and is owned by 9.5% of FPL managers. His returns have been flattering, given they were a penalty and a set-piece goal, but the youngster looks hungry. He’s won 61% of duels and has had 71% successful dribbles. This could make him a tricky opponent during a Leicester counter attack and could see him grab more assists for the main man Vardy.
Under 5% Ownership Differential Murray – Manchester City vs BrightonEmbed from Getty Images
Murray is owned by 2.2% of managers right now and is just £6.5m. Okay, so he faces Manchester City up next, but after that Murray faces a sea of great fixtures all the way up to game week 17. Murray scored 12 goals last season and already has four in this current season, granted he can be a little wasteful with his passes, with a pass percentage of just 61%, but he does try to make up for it with his 1.5 shots per game. He’s likely not going to set your FPL team alight, but he is a cheap differential that might just help it tick along!
Clean sheet Option Huddersfield vs Tottenham HotspurEmbed from Getty Images
Tottenham haven’t had the most solid start defensively this season, with only one clean sheet to their name. However, Tottenham have a good record over Huddersfield, it was 4-0 to Spurs the last time these two met each other at the John Smith’s Stadium. Spurs have also kept a clean sheet both times these two have matched up. Therefore, I would say Spurs could be due their second clean sheet this season, and they may just get it this weekend against the Terriers.
