Captain: Gameweek 19

Once again it was a tough choice between the in-form City duo Yaya and Silva this week. Silva’s form is at its peak and he has certainly raked in more points (30) in the last 2 gameweeks than Yaya (18) but the possibility of a return for City’s striker Stevan Jovetic against Burnley could reduce the attacking opportunities for Silva. Yaya Toure (10.9m) retains the penalty taking responsibility for City and our captain’s armband as well.

Here’s a few stats on Yaya’s performance in the last 7 gameweeks:

  • Goals: 5
  • Points: 53
  • Average points per game: 7.57

With 37 goals scored in the last 7 matches between Manchester City and Burnley, you can expect a goal fest at the Etihad Stadium this Sunday. Yaya has scored in each of his last 3 EPL matches at the Etihad and if you want a safe option, he’s the man for you this week.

Alternatives: David Silva (9.2m), Diego Costa (11.2m), Alexis Sanchez (11.4m)
