The Premier League games are beginning to come thick and fast as the festive period draws nearer and this represents the best time for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers to make their mark in a bid to improve their standings. Ahead of Gameweek 13, thefootball faithful takes a look at the best four captaincy picks and Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is the pick of the bunch. Here are the four players picked for FPL captaincy for the latest gameweek:

  1. Kevin De Bruyne – The Manchester City star is widely regarded as the best playmaker in the world and the Belgian international is the reigning PFA Player of the Year after his impressive form for the Citizens last season. It must be pointed out that Kevin De Bruyne has not been able to hit the lofty heights set last season, but the player is still one of the best players in the league this season. Ahead of the West Brom game at home, Manchester City are clear favourites and this game represents a good platform for Kevin De Bruyne to pick up a lot of points. West Brom are the leakiest defence in the league this season in addition to a record of a solitary win in 12 matches upon their return to the topflight this summer.

  1. Bruno Fernandes – Manchester United and Bruno Fernandes have a better record away from home than at home ahead of their trip to face Sheffield United. The Blades are in freefall after a run of one draw and 11 defeats in 12 league games this season. Bruno Fernandes should get some joy against the bottom team in the league.
  2. Jack Grealish – The Aston Villa skipper has been one of the best players in the Premier League this season and he’s a good pick for FPL captaincy for gameweek 13.
  3. Jamie Vardy – Leicester City and Jamie Vardy are back to their best after the 3-0 win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion in their last game. They welcome Everton to the King Power Stadium for one of the games in gameweek 13. Jamie Vardy could be a good captaincy pick after his 13-point haul against Brighton at the weekend.
