Picking the right captain is critical and @zmonks7_TW made the right pick on the way to the weekly high score on the WSS EPL Fantasy Challenge with 80 points. Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta (10 x2) was handed the armband and it paid dividends as the Spanish defender found the back of the net in the Blues 3-2 win over West Brom.

The Blues traditional attack came through for well with Diego Costa (10) and Eden Hazard (6) each contributing.
But the 3-5-2 line-up really was grounded in the backline and that was all Manchester United. Sergio Romero (7) backstopped the side with Luke Shaw (6) and Darmian Matteo (6) all helping the Red Devils posted a 0-0 draw with Newcastle.
Stoke City’s new boy Xherdan Shaqiri (6) was inserted in the lineup for his debut and came through for the Potters. He was joined in the midfield by Manchester City’s David Silva (4), Leicester City’s Marc Albrighton (3), and the Premier League top scorer Riyad Mahrez (9). Sergio Aguero (3) joined Costa up front.
This was the third captain that @zmonks7_TW has used after Hazard in week 1 and West Ham’s Adrian in week 2. In those opening weeks the picks only turned in 6 total points so the question is whether the manager will stick with Azpilicueta or once again pass it along.
