Lukaku, Mane and Llorente in Captain Picks for game week 28

Our captaincy article is back to help you choose the right captain for game week 28. This year we are using data from the RMT Adviser’s algorithm and our experience to make our recommendations.

Rate My Team Adviser’s algorithm picks

Romelu Lukaku

In a week with limited choice due to the numerous blanks Everton’s Lukaku offers a pretty decent option. Lukaku is in good form having scored 6 goals in his last 4 games and found the net last week against Spurs from what seemed like his only real opportunity.

A home game with West Brom this week makes Lukaku the Adviser’s top projected point scorer with 5.9 projected points. As far as goals are concerned the Adviser’s algorithm is also pretty confident in Lukaku finding the net with the following projections

1 goal 34.4%
2 goals 10%
3 goals 1.8%

Sadio Mane

The most in form of Liverpool’s midfield players continued his good recent run with a goal, assist and 3 bonus points in last week’s win over Arsenal. Mane is the RMT Adviser’s 2nd pick for captaincy this week with 4.96 projected points and the following goal predictions:

1 goal 23%
2 goals 2.8%
3 goals 0%

Liverpool at home against Burnley really should be a comfortable home win but Liverpool have struggled a little against teams like Burnley lately specifically losing to Swansea and Hull. However I think they will get the job done this weekend and giving one of their attacking assets the captains armband isn’t a bad idea at all.

Fergie’s Picks

Fernando Llorente

I’m going to tip the Swansea forward as a captain option based on his excellent recent form. 3 goals in his last 2 games and 5 in the last 6 are strong numbers for any forward. Swansea have really turned a corner under Paul Clement and look like they have every chance to save themselves which wasn’t the case under the previous management.

This isn’t a week where we are spoiled for big name captaincy options so a bit of creativity is a good thing. Swansea are away at Hull in what will be a big relegation 6 pointer so I’m tipping goals in this one and with the likes of Siggy helping supply the service you might just find that Llorente turns out to be a clever differential captain.

  1. Going with Mane, Mane the man, hopefully, need to make up 100 points on my ML leader, he does not have Mane, has Lukaku though, hope Lukaku trolls this week.

    • @GoalMachine Wait, what Firmino doubtful? The player I brought back in this gw for a hit :idunno: The very same one I took out for a hit for Sterling last gw? :headbang: That’s some Jonah luck that is :lol:

  2. My Rules team. I already brought in Gray and Mawson. I need another defender for Luiz.

  3. How about Andy Carroll?
