The Captain – Gameweek 5

Kane, ,Lukaku and Gabriel Jesus

Still unsure who to make your captain for gameweek 5? Here’s our advice…

Romelu Lukaku:
The Belgian remains the premier league top scorer going into gameweek 5, scoring against Stoke last weekend. Matching Harry Kane for shots on target (9), 5 shots and two attempted assists per game suggests Lukaku is well on his way to his first assist of the season. During the last five campaigns, Lukaku has achieved a minimum of 6 assists each season. Still £11.7million, Lukaku is always a great option, as Manchester United are up against Everton.
Harry Kane:
Kane ended his goalscoring drought with a brace against Everton in gameweek 4, with two goals and an assist in the Champions League too. The inform striker is another great option for your captaincy role. Spurs face Swansea for this gameweek, who have conceeded a total of 78 goal attempts this season, a league high joint with Burnley. We all know that Kane only needs a few chances to get a goal (unless it’s August), so his fixture against The Swans could be the perfect time to captain Harry Kane.
Gabriel Jesus:
Four appearances. 3 goals. 3 wins. Jesus now has a near guaranteed starting place with Manchester City as they face Watford away from home. A Watford defence that has picked up a few injuries recently will have to block out an average of 3 shots a game from this man, half of those on target. Last season Jesus’ record was 7 goals in 10 games. The Brazilian is well on his way to beating that statistic. He’s scored a goal with his left foot, right foot and his head already this term. The 20-year-old is another fantastic captaincy option.
