ROBERT SANCHEZ (£ 6.5m), LEWIS DUNK (£ 8.2m) and ADAM WEBSTER (£ 7.0m)
With two home games in the first three games and the possibility of conceding a few goals during that time, I support Brighton and Hove Albion with a defensive triple-up.
Lewis Dunk (£ 8.2m) and Adam Webster (£ 7.0m) are also able to hit normal passing steps, which is a huge bonus for defenders.
RUBEN DIAS (£ 10.6m)
The Manchester City defender offers captaincy potential as he usually hits this passing level.
As a result, if you keep a clean sheet, you will see a 20 point return on investment!
If I don’t use West Ham United’s assets to play against Newcastle United, they’ll be my captain on Matchday 1 Sunday.
TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD (£ 10.5m)
The Liverpool right-back finished the season on top form and I expect him to start again.
He’s more than capable of getting offensive returns and clean hands in the first three games.
However, I may consider Virgil van Dijk (£ 10.2m) as an alternative, provided he is naturally fit.
BRUNO FERNANDES (£ 11.8m)
Most expensive midfielder in the game who will be high profile and will most likely be my captain for the last two of the first three weeks.
It would be terrifying to do without him in this format!
EMILIANO UNIVERSITY (£ 7.9m)
I really like Aston Villa’s first three games against Watford (a), Newcastle United (h) and Brentford (h) and I expect a return given the signings they made this summer.
Emiliano Buendía (£ 7.9m) is a great introduction to your attack setup at a reasonable price.
HARVEY BARNES (£ 8.6m)
The Leicester City winger was really unhappy last season after injuring himself last season but behind him after a summer break and pre-season Harvey Barnes (£ 8.6m) could be a big difference to play in the first three weeks.
He is very capable of coming back offensively on several occasions under Brendan Rodgers, as proved in 2020/21.
MOHAMED SALAH (£ 11.9m)
The 29-year-old is a must-have in my opinion and will be the busiest captain on the Saturday of the opening weekend.
This Norwich City game could be full of goals and I would expect that Mohamed Salah (£ 11.9m) will be involved.
IVAN TONEY (£ 7.9m)
Unless you’re starting the season with an Arsenal player then the option for the captain on Friday must surely be Ivan Toney (£ 7.9m).
Brentford will want to start off well and Toney is the captain.
At just £ 7.9m, he’s a great option for the striker.
DANNY INGS (£ 9.1m)
That hurts as a Southampton fan, but now at Aston Villa Danny Ings (£ 9.1m) is going to be a great option in the first three weeks.
He will certainly play through the middle and with the serve behind him should create many opportunities.
He could end on penalties too, should Anwar El GhaziPlaytime will be limited.
