Manchester United Defenders
With so many matches to be played over a short period, one could witness more focus given on defence rather than attack to conserve some energy. Possibilities are there for the Red Devils to keep one or two clean sheets this week. So, giving the armband to a defender who is likely to start all three matches may not be the worst idea.
Harry Maguire is the obvious one if you are looking for a nailed-on starter. He has played every minute of every game in the Premier League this season. Luke Shaw is the most attacking out of the defenders but with Alex Telles around, Solksjaer might just decide to give Shaw a rest in one of the three matches. Aaron Wan-Bissaka could start all three unless Axel Tuanzebe is given a start. Victor Lindelöf might also be given a breather in one of the three matches. So, Harry Maguire is probably the best choice out of the defenders.

Triple gameweeks do not come every season and one has to enjoy the ride when it comes around. Bruno Fernandes is the obvious choice this week although one could try Harry Maguire as well.
