Benteke (8.5m) is our top choice for the Captain’s armband this week. The Belgian forward will take on a Norwich side that has already shipped 9 goals in their first 5 matches, and will be looking to cement his position as Liverpool’s main striker this season. With Sturridge on the verge of recovery, this may be one of Benteke’s last few games to prove himself in front of the Liverpool faithful. We all know how a certain ex-Liverpool striker used to terrorize the Norwich back four in his days, and we hope Benteke pays him a tribute this week 😉
Our second pick for the armband is City’s Aguero (13.2m). With Silva and Sterling both back in action, and De Bruyne finding his feet in the last few matches, Aguero will have plenty of service from his midfield, and might just open up the goal scoring floodgates that we have been accustomed to last season.
Mahrez (6.3m) is our third and final pick for snapping the armband onto this week. The Algerian has been in stunning form and will be looking to add to his tally against Stoke this week.
