Ibra Pips Alexis to Armband

Your Gameweek 25 Fantasy Premier League armband guide

Alexis Sánchez didn’t manage a single touch in Chelsea’s penalty area last Saturday but that statistic is unlikely to deter too many Fantasy Premier League managers from giving the Chilean attacker the captain’s armband in Gameweek 25.

Sánchez has cast a frustrated figure in recent weeks but he still has 15 Premier League goals and 8 assists to his name this season. This upcoming home match with Hull City looks like the perfect opportunity for Arsene Wenger to finally put his archaic 4-2-3-1 formation to bed and install Sánchez as the spearhead of a 3-pronged attack that could inject much needed life into Arsenal’s faltering title bid.

Sánchez again ranks highly in our ‘Captometer’ rankings for GW25 but he is just pipped to first place by the ever-green Zlatan Ibrahimović.

The big Swede was on the scoresheet again in the 3-0 victory over Leicester City at the the King Power Stadium and he will be expecting to add to his tally when Manchester United entertain Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Sergio Agüero will be hoping for a recall when Manchester City visit Bournemouth but it is unlikely to be at the expense of Gabriel Jesus, who has burst onto the FPL scene.

The in-form Gylfi Sigurdsson is sure to have his suitors but it’s a player from the same fixture that might appeal as a real differential. Despite climbing out of the relegation zone, no team has shipped as many goals as Swansea City, so champions’ Leicester City will be looking to banish some of the relegation talk that has come their way. Islam Slimani, who has returned following his exploits at the Africa Cup of Nations, is expected to lead the Foxes attack and he will be looking to build on the 5 goals and 3 assists he has to his name.
