Game Week 28 Captain Picks

As we've mentioned in our podcast this week (see sidebar) and in our tips for week 28, this is a particularly challenging week with only four games being played. Although this makes picking an overall team quite difficult, it makes the captain issue quite a simple affair. Unfortunately that means there aren't going to be any huge revelations this week, with the #3 pick being the hardest by far.
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.

GW28 Captain Pick No. 3: Fernando Llorente

There were a lot of players we considered for the number 3 spot, and Llorente only just beat out Countinho, Firmino and teammate Sigurdsson for the ranking. In the end we have to back Llorente because his recent goal scoring form has been so good, and having scored a brace against Burnley in his last game, we're backing him to knock another in against Hull.

It does go without saying that this will likely be the only week that someone like Llorente (without doubting his considerable quality) will be in the captain's discussion. But if for any chance you can't get hold of our top two picks, you'd feel okay with this play, and like his chances of scoring.

GW28 Captain Pick No. 2: Sadio Mané

Well the #2 pick simply came down to which one of the Liverpool midfield we wanted, and we've been big on Mané for weeks as our pick of the bunch. although he's not being putting together quite as many assists as we'd like for a midfielder, he looks like scoring whenever he's got the ball in the box and with a favourable fixture we think he'll score.

Mané is coming off a very hot game in which he scored and assisted against Arsenal and we do like him to keep this streak alive. All that said it has to be acknowledged that any time you go big on any Liverpool player you're playing a bit of midfield bingo and it is possible that one of his teammates will be the one to come up big this week. Even so, this weekSadio gets out vote.
