Home   /   Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 24 best captaincy picks

1.- Kevin De Bruyne (£12.2m)

The Belgian maestros good form is underpinned by the fact he was included in the WhoScored team of the month for his outstanding performances in January. Along with this the midfielder has six attacking returns in his last seven outings for the citizens, earning him 57 points in the process.

Moreover the Belgian has scored in all three of his last games at the Etihad, where the citizens play a badly out of form Brentford who have conceded 16 in their last five matches in all competitions, with a 4-1 loss to Frank Lampard Everton in their last outing. As the focal point of the sky blues attack, this means De Bruyne will likely have a hand in a large share of there goals- something City are likely to score a lot of going off of the South London clubs recent form.

It is also important to consider at just 16.0% ownership, in the likely event the Belgian does return it would result in a shooting up the ranks for the managers who back him

2. -Harry Kane (£12.3m)

After a dismal start to the season for the Lilywhites, talisman Harry Kane has come into fantastic form in the mid stage of the season and comes into Gameweek 24 off the back of man of the match performance and two goals against fellow Premier League opposition Brighton.

Tottenham’s number 10 has looked rejuvenated under gaffer Antonio Conte with the forward returning five times in his last six games and earning 11 points against Leicester two weeks ago.

Another huge factor in Kane’s point scoring over the past couple of years has been his partnership with Korean winger Son Heung-Min, who is back in the starting lineup after an absence with injury, boosting his potential as an FPL asset.

Despite a superb performance last game week, where they held Manchester City to one goal, Kanes opponents Southampton have typically struggled defensively against the top teams in the division, meaning the forward will have lots of opportunities to return over 90 minutes

3.- Diogo Jota (8.5m)
The Portuguese winger/striker has picked up most of the slack for the reds in the absence of icon Mo Salah, however with the winger expected to return imminently after losing the AFCON final, this gameweek may be the last one in which Jota is guaranteed to start given Liverpools fire power.

The forward boasts the second best xG/90 in the league behind the aforementioned Salah at 0.71. Additionally, Liverpools frontman has the second highest shots in the box this season with 53- something that is very interesting, considering the Red’s opponents in Leicester have concede the join t mos shots in the box this season (218)

Furthermore, the Foxes come into the league tie off the back of a horrific 4-1 dismantling at the hands of Championship Nottingham Forrest and have looked generally shambolic at the back all season without Jonny Evans.

Liverpool could definitely score a few, raising Jota’s potential as captain for this week
