Two Premier League midfielders feature in our recommended captain picks for Matchday 3 and the first of those is the Manchester City man, who has already scored, provided an assist and earned a penalty over the course of the first two matchdays.

With Josep Guardiola currently without the injured Sergio Agüero and Gabriel Jesus, he has been forced to play without a recognised striker but Sterling has consistently proved that he can supply the goals when needed. With 16 #UCLfantasy points to his name already, the England international has entrenched himself in the captaincy conversation and is a tempting option as City look to make it three wins from three at home to Olympiacos.

There was certainly some reluctance in selecting 50%-owned Lewandowski as a captaincy option given that he has blanked in both of Bayern’s first two matchdays, but patience is often rewarded in Fantasy Football and those who keep faith could be handsomely rewarded once the Pole kicks into gear. Including August’s UEFA Champions League final.

Lewandowski has now gone three consecutive games without scoring in the competition but, given the amount of goals he has been scoring in the Bundesliga and at international level, the law of averages dictates that Fantasy returns are surely just around the corner. Bayern’s Matchday 3 fixture takes them to a Salzburg side who have conceded five goals in the competition so far, and Lewandowski will undoubtedly be on the of the most popular armband choices once more.

Rashford owners will have been dismayed when they saw the teamsheets for Manchester United’s Matchday 2 fixture against Leipzig and found him among the substitutes, but those frowns were turned upside down by the final whistle due to his sensational 16-minute hat-trick after coming off the bench in the second half.

Combined with his goal against Paris on Matchday 1, Rashford is currently the top scorer in the UEFA Champions League this season but is surprisingly owned by just 6% of #UCLfantasy managers at the time of writing. That only increases his appeal however, with Rashford now offering potential differential value ahead of his side’s trip to İstanbul Başakşehir.

With two goals, an assist and a penalty earned across the opening two matchdays, Lionel Messi finds himself as the second-highest scoring #UCLfantasy asset at the moment, yet it feels like the Argentinian has yet to really hit his stride. Messi is yet to score from open play this season in any competition but, as is the case with Lewandowski, that trend will surely come to an end sooner rather than later given his historical numbers.

Barcelona are already in a strong position in Group G after winning their opening two matches and will look to consolidate top spot with victory at home to Dynamo Kyiv on Matchday 3; furthermore, Messi has faced the Ukrainian side twice before, scoring in both games in 2009/10.
