Game Week 16 Captain Picks

 Sponsored by Premier Punt

A week in the football world is a long time and with Arsenal and Chelsea defying their critics to beat off Champions League opposition and progress to the last 16 of Europe’s elite competition they will be carrying plenty of confidence in to game week 16. The captain pick is made no easier however and we have searched high and low this week to bring you our top 3 captain picks. Premium members will get all three and can read them here.

This week’s Fantasy Football Tips Podcast saw Romelu Lukaku given the status of guaranteed performer for GW16 but will he be our captain choice – Olivier Giroud’s hat-trick against Olympiakos will certainly give a few managers plenty to think about and with Harry Kane playing a Newcastle side that has been woeful for much of this season, there is plenty to think about when making that captain choice.

Captain Pick No. 3: Romelu Lukaku – Everton Vs. Norwich City

He may have been Quigliano’s Garry of the Week on this week’s podcast but Lukaku is not our top captain pick for game week 16. He is however, a very solid option for captain this week having scored 6 goals and having 2 assists in his last 5 games. This rejuvenated Everton side travel to Norwich City who were well beaten by Watford last weekend. Everton were unlucky not to beat Crystal Palace on Monday night and Lukaku could have very easily had a hat-trick and was a matter of inches away from doing so – hitting the bar and the post with two very good efforts.

The concern is that Alex Neil has The Canaries pretty well trained and they generally don’t give too much away. Lukaku will have to be at his predatory and clinical best to convert any chances that come his way. That being said, the form of the ex-Chelsea man is incredible and the fixture looks pretty decent too – so if you have Lukaku in your team he is a very good shout for captain.

If you don’t have Lukaku in your team – well… what are you thinking! The second highest goal scorer in the Premier League so far this season is in the middle of a purple patch (goals wise) and still has some great fixtures ahead of him.
