Our Differential Captain Pick

Dennis will be my Differential Captain for DGW22:

vs Newcastle (A) / Burnley (A)

There has been some breaking news on Ronaldo and Kane, Ronaldo potential injury and Kane’s fixture being postponed. So that could mean Dennis would be a good option for the captaincy.

TEAM DEFENSIVE XG CONCEDED:

Below you will see data for the last 4 Gameweeks for Team Defensive xG Conceded:

Brentford to target:

Overall, Brentford is the worst for xG conceded (4.38) and conceded 8 goals. For those managers who have Ronaldo in their team, I expect a return.

Aston Villa is winless in their last 22 home league games against Man United, draw 7 and lost 15.

Since Gerrard has been in charge Villa look like a much stronger team. This week they played Man United in the FA cup losing 1-0. Unlucky not to of won the game.

Leicester to target:

Leicester have the worst Big chances conceded (10), second for xGC (5.77) and worst for Minutes Per xG Conceded (32.9) in the League.

Areas of the Pitch being conceded

Below you will see data for the last 4 Gameweeks for Areas of the Pitch being Conceded:

If you look at the last 4 Gamesweeks, Leicester is the team to target out of the two DGW’s. Conceding the most chances down the left side but equally down the centre.
Overall Leicester is second-worst in the League for chances conceded central zones 83, below Burnley with 87.


Summary

DGW22 is coming close and I have to say it’s not going to be simple to choose who should be our captain. I believe I have picked out the best candidates with Ronaldo and Kane.

I have provided you with data with equal comparisons for the two.

Kane show’s to have the best form in recent week’s, but Ronaldo with an overall best over the season. It isn’t that far out between the two.

Manchester United have the best fixtures and I like that Brentford game to target, as they are not looking great defensively.

Whereas Spur’s have slightly difficult DGW’s, Leicester is the game to target but do feel that they can pull out a performance against the top 6 teams. For example their 1-0 win against Liverpool recently.

The best Captain for DGW22 goes to Cristiano Ronaldo
