Captain: Gameweek 26

With the onset of Gameweek 26 we get ready to enter the final leg of football for this season. This season has produced some spectacular gems in players, some have failed, some were out injured for so long that we don’t recognize them any more. Well, I can go on all day talking about what I feel of this season. Before that happens let me quickly¬†¬†run you all through our captain picks for gameweek 26:

Harry Kane (6.3) stole his way into our captain teams sometime around gameweek 17 and has consistently been one of the top candidates for the captain’s place ever since. If fifty years down the line anyone asked me to describe the EPL season of 2014-15, I would refer to it as the season of the HurriKane. Because there is no stopping this English lad who is on a phenomenal run of form. Kane has to his credit 63 points in the last 6 appearances with an average of 9.5 points per game, roughly having 4.75 goal attempts during his last four games. And one must not forget – whatever Kane touches turns into Goal.

Sergio Aguero (12.8) seems to be getting costlier by the day on the fantasy player list and if he is not in your team right now, you probably won’t be able to afford him after a few more gameweeks. Aguero scored two goals in the previous outing against the Potters and his movement on the pitch seemed, sublime! After watching him play one could make out that the striker is back in the business and is set to take his goal tally further upwards (and probably further out of reach of Kane). Aguero has tallied a decent number of goal attempts (4.22). Also going by the public opinion, Aguero is among the favorites for the captain’s arm band. Finally, with the return of Yaya Toure there will surely be more chances for Aguero to latch his teeth upon and get his game going on.

Eden Hazard (10.9) should not be very fatigued from the mid-week Champions league fixture and hence makes it to the captain’s list. Hazard broke his goal scoring jinx a couple of gameweeks back and should not find it to be a hard day in office in Chelsea’s upcoming fixture against Burnley. Also, Hazard averages 7.4 points at Stamford bridge which is a sizable kitty. With the imminent return of Fabregas back into the ranks, there should be ample support for Hazard to get on with his beautiful footwork and get on the score-sheet.
