The Captain Pick – Gameweek 3

Kane, Aguero and Lukaku

Still wondering who to make captain for your FPL team in gameweek 3? Here is our quick guide to choosing your captain from our three suggestions given by our 2015/16 champion, Calvin Chan…


Tottenham face Burnley this weekend, and perhaps the time for Harry Kane to bag his first premier league goal! Two big chances missed and twice he has struck the woodwork, surely a goal is just around the corner for the Englishman. Matching Lukaku with 4 attempted assists, but taking the most shots in the league, he is certainly a viable option to take the captaincy in your FPL squad.


Aguero will start alongside Jesus versus Bournemouth, a team that has lost both their opening games, scored no goals and have conceded three, the perfect opportunity for Man City to get themselves into some decent form following their 1-1 tie with Everton last time out. Aguero has scored just the one goal so far this season. Last season the Argentine averaged an FPL involvement every 92 minutes and had the most expected goals and big chances out of our three captain recommendations, despite considerably fewer minutes on the pitch!


Lukaku is currently the league’s top goal scorer, with three goals. It doesn’t seem like he intends on stopping his goal scoring anytime soon. What is more impressive is that he has converted all three of his shots on target into goals. Lukaku outshines Tottenham Striker Harry Kane who has converted none of his 14 shots on goal. The Belgian has an average of two attempted assists per game and four shots per game. Manchester United face Leicester at home in gameweek 3. Lukaku is owned by 57.4% of FPL managers, so the only way to gain an advantage in mini-leagues through Lukaku is to hand him the captain’s armband.
