FPL Show: Be brave and captain Iheanacho

23 Apr 2021

Fantasy experts Lee Bonfield and Gianni Buttice reveal the top armband options for Blank Gameweek 33

A combination of form, fixture and a blank Gameweek for four teams makes it the perfect time to be bold and captain Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.1m) in Fantasy Premier League.

Fantasy expert Lee Bonfield, of @FPLFamily, says Iheanacho can extend his incredible run of eight goals in six appearances when he faces a Crystal Palace side who have conceded nine times across their last four matches.

"The form he's showing is great, he's the man on fire at the moment," he says on the latest FPL Show.

"It's [a little bit brave to captain him] because of [Mohamed] Salah's ownership and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] showing some good form. But I can't get over how poor Crystal Palace are defensively. I think he'll benefit."

Fellow Fantasy expert Gianni Buttice, however,  favours giving his armband to a player with a higher ownership than Iheneacho's 18.4 per cent. 

Indeed, he is eyeing the sixth highest-owned player in the game, even if he has to take a points hit to do so.

"I'm likely to target Liverpool this week," he says ahead of the Reds' home match against Newcastle United.

"If I bring Salah, which I'm likely to do for a four-point hit, then the armband will go straight on him."

Remember, the Gameweek 33 deadline is Friday 23 April at 18:30 BST.
