Game Week 25 Captain Picks


Week 25 presents a particularly difficult time to pick a captain, with many top teams finding themselves playing week opponents at home. In particular Arsenal play Hull City at the Emirates and Manchester United play Watford at Old Trafford. Most fantasy leagues are really hitting crunch time around now, so it's more important than ever to pick the right captain this week. As usual we've compiles stats throughout the season and worked out the top 3 captain options for the week. Check them out below, and as ever, good luck!


As always, the number one captain pick is reserved for our premium members – so make sure you are signed in to read the full article.

GW25 Captain Pick No. 3: Alexis Sanchez

Arsenal really struggles against Chelsea in week 24 and will be eager to bounce back in a big way at home to Hull this weekend. As Arsenal fans lament, their team often make light work of lower league teams at home, only to struggle when playing the big boys. While that might not be good news for Arsenal fans, it's great news for Sanchez owners. It was a close call between Sanchez and Giroud as both are racking up goals against weak opposition, but on balance, and due to his overall better scoring stats this season, we gave Sanchez the edge and should feel comfortable starting him as your captain.


GW25 Captain Pick No. 2: Jermain Defoe


To say that Defoe is the only play scoring for Sunderland, would be the understatement of the century. Having racked up 14 goals this season, the next highest scoring player is only three.

He looked incredibly sharp playing away to Crystal Palace in week 24, and we'd just be shocked if if doesn't at least knock in one goal against Southampton. Knowing that so many of Sunderland's goals are scored by Jermain, and Sunderland having a pretty favourable tie at home to Sunderland, makes him a very solid option for your team's captain this week.

    Definitely not a bad captain pick. We think Leicester will bounce back a bit, but he’d have still been our #4.

    Gabriel Jesus?

    You’d certainly fancy him to pop one in.

    I am looking for a good player stats/ratings website. Suggestions?

    Hi Hawthorn,

    If you’re looking for pure stats then the Premier Leagues’s own site is pretty good.
