GW21 Captain Rankings and all that jazz

Another day, another year, another gameweek!  Some fairly juicy matchup this week with Chelsea hosting QPR, Spurs inviting Reading to join their new year celebrations and Swansea taking on a Villa defence in atrocious form.

Captain Rankings


The red flags indicate players who may not play/start in GW21.  Van Persie's rest in the GW20 West Brom game should give him a starting chance in United's away trip at Wigan although you never know in football these days and with games against Liverpool and Tottenham in the next two he may get an extra rest.  Similarly for Hernandez, whilst Michu is rated 50:50 at best. 

Two in-form midfielders then, in Mata and Walcott, may represent the best captain options this week, with Mata getting the nod in my estimations due to home advantage, although Arsenal's away from is one of best in the league.
