FPL Show: Fresh Fernandes can bounce back as captain

26 Jan 2021

Fantasy experts Sam and Lee Bonfield say Man Utd midfielder is the best pick for the GW20 armband

Managers in Fantasy Premier League should look no further than Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) for the Gameweek 20 captaincy, according to FPL experts Sam and Lee Bonfield. 

The pair, of the FPL Family, say a home meeting with bottom club Sheffield United gives Fernandes a perfect opportunity to bounce back from a run of only one attacking return in his last three matches.

"I can't see any other standout option this week," says Sam on the latest episode of the FPL Show.  

"He's against a woefully out-of-form Sheff Utd side who just can't keep a clean sheet. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him come back with a bang." 

Lee feels the Manchester United star's prospects are lifted even higher because he featured only as a substitute in Sunday's FA Cup win over Liverpool.

"His slight drop in FPL returns recently does not put me off," he says. "The fact that he had a rest against Liverpool makes me even more certain." 

Remember, the Gameweek 20 deadline is at 16:30 GMT on Tuesday 26 January.
