In this week’s column, we look at why you should captain Gylfi Sigurdsson and the three teams you should turn in the coming rounds.
But first, a shout out to these tactical geniuses who top our Sport360 fans league going into this week!
WHO TO PICK AS CAPTAIN
Seamus Coleman [5.8m] was the pick for captain in Gameweek 24 and despite Bournemouth’s gallant display in the second half, which saw him lose clean sheet points, he still bagged an assist.
This week, you’d do well to captain Gylfi Sigurdsson [7.4m] as Swansea City entertain a Leicester City side which can’t stop conceding at the moment.
The Icelandic international has scored 26 points in the last three Gameweeks, including three goals.
THREE TEAMS TO TURN TO
The Toffees still have a good run of fixtures apart from that encounter with Tottenham in a couple of weeks but more importantly, they’re in great form.
They’ve won five and drawn two in their last seven games. The players who stand out are Romelu Lukaku [9.8m] and Seamus Coleman [5.8m] of course but there’s also good value available with cheaper options like Tom Davies [4.4m] or Mason Holgate [4.2m].
WEST HAM UNITED
Apart from that mauling they suffered against Arsenal, West Ham’s recent run has included four wins and a 2-2 draw at Anfield.
Five of their next six fixtures have an FDR rating of just two. However, the only players really worth picking are Andy Carroll [6.3m] and Robert Snodgrass [5.8m] for their consistency and value for money.

Hull City have the joint-worst goal difference in the league and are flirting with relegation in 18th place but ironically, it’s their defence that may be worth backing over the coming weeks.
Marco Silva seems to have got the team operating as a more compact unit, making it difficult to break them down and clean sheets against Manchester United and Liverpool are testament to that.
They’ve ground out seven points from games against Bournemouth, Chelsea, United and Liverpool. There are plenty of affordable options in their defence but the ones that stand out are Eldin Jakupovic [4.0m] between the sticks and Harry Maguire [4.4] at centre-back.
They’ve got Arsenal this weekend but a great run beyond that and it will be interesting to see how many clean sheets they manage against the lesser teams.
