    Might throw the TC on Stones.

    Have gone KdB with Gundog the vice captain. Youd expect to see KdB play the full 90 against United, its the Southampton game where the risk is though Im hoping Pep plays him just to get more match fitness.

    For the first time in about 9 years of playing FPL, I'm strongly considering a Defender. Dias.

    Seems(?) to be a nailed on starter and I'd back a couple of clean sheets for City.

    Heart is broken this last while trusting attackers with the armband but I still might chicken out and pick Gundo

    Gundogan. Probably start one game but rare to get a double chance for a City player to play so worthwhile.

    Tempted by Dias but will probably go with Sterling

    Ederson?

    I think there's an argument for not captaining a City player. Again it's hard to know who will start twice. I could see if you had Dias he'd be a tempting option as he's the most likely.

    I will probably start Gundo - an important part of their team and he got a rest last match so hopeful of him playing both but would be in no way surprised if he didn't.

    Spurs at home to Palace is a tempting option. It's between Kane and Gundo I think, but I'll probably go Gundo. Probably bringing in Son so that's investment enough into Spurs,and then only have Gundo and Stones from City so probably makes sense for me to captain a City player as a bit under invested there

    I'm between Gundo and Kane, Gundo deffo starts against Utd but that could be tight. Might take the chance he plays against Saints

    Stones loves a DGW goal, 2 goals in last 3 DGW, has had his "rest" and all

    Torn between the City lads. On Cancelo at the moment. KDB and Gundogen my other 2

    Don't know how people have the patience to captain Sterling, drives me mad watching him and I don't even own him.

    Couldn’t agree more. He was very good for points in previous years but so hit and miss these days. (A lot of miss)

    Gundogan atm and even then i dont trust Pep to play him in both games!

    Gundogan. Still have TC but won't use it as always a doubt he won't start both even with his rest.

    This morning I was set on KdB but now hovering over Dias. But worried it is too bold a move given two close rivals have the Gundog/Stones/Dias combination and are highly likely to captain Gundog who you'd expect to start v United. But Foden is due some game time so he may not start against Southampton. Friday nights for me lately seem to be preoccupied with trying to read Peps mind.

    Ward Prowse just for the hell of it

    Going Foden.
    Stones is the only other dgw'er I have.

    I really want to captain Dias but I feel Pep is just too risky, particularly the Southampton game with CL coming.

    It's turned me off gundog too because I cannot see him playing enough over the two, it may come back to bite me on the arse but I've gone for Kane. If spurs can hit the ground running they can overrun palace at home. Look at the last DGW, tired games with little return.

    On night shift and this decision is killing me!!! Going with the gut, been on Kane all week and sticking with it. Let's go!!

    Still can’t make up my mind. Down to 2, KDB or Cancelo. Is Cancelo more likely to start the 2 after his rest in the last DGW?

    I would expect Cancelo to play. Think he'd be rested against Fulham

    Probably 50-50. Walker is due a rest so I think Zinchenko will get at least 1 game so I'd expect Zinchenko and Cancelo to start for one match. He never seems to play Zinchenko in back to back games though so I think the only danger is a Laporte/Ake/Mendy appearance at left back for the other one with Walker at right back.
