Captains

Captain Sensible – Aubameyang can challenge Salah and Hazard

It looks like a three-way battle for the Gameweek 22 captaincy this weekend.

Fantasy Premier League managers are having to think big as we head into the first round of action for some time.

With the wealth of premium options all in decent form at the start of 2019, choosing the right captain could prove harder than ever.

We’re here to analyse the debate from all angles by looking at individual data, team attacking statistics and opposition defences.

Captain Poll

Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) is set to win the Gameweek 22 captain poll as, at the time of writing, he has 40% backing from the voters. The Egyptian faces Brighton on Saturday afternoon having scored 12 points in three of his last four Premier League outings. Salah’s ownership continues to rise again, now just over 42% after his excellent recent form, which is probably the reason why he has done so well in our poll. The Liverpool man seems to be returning to the ‘auto-captain’ status he ended the 2017/18 campaign in.

Some way behind Salah in second place is Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard (£11.1m). It appears that 23% of our voters are confident the Belgian will deliver in Gameweek 22 after two consecutive blanks to round off the hectic festive fixtures. If we are to believe that Hazard tends to punish those who sell him after blanks, maybe he is indeed set for some attacking returns at home to Newcastle on Saturday. The Magpies have registered just one clean sheet in their last five away matches.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) looks set to claim the bronze medal with his 11% backing ahead of Arsenal’s trip to West Ham. The Hammers still have just one clean sheet at home while Aubameyang has attacking returns in all but one away match against sides outside the top six this season.

Sergio Aguero (£11.2m) is the best of the rest with just 6% backing, the voters suitably afraid both of the Wolves defence and the form that Manchester City have shown in Premier League matches. As we discussed in our recent League Cup notes, a 9-0 win over League Cup opposition could mean little when the top flight action is resumed. Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) has just a third of Aguero’s support, with 2% of the vote, with Leroy Sané (£9.5m) even further behind on 1.25%.

Sandwiched amongst those options are Harry Kane (£12.6m) whose 2.49% share is reflective of a match against Manchester United, while Felipe Anderson (£7.4m) remains the most popular West Ham man. The Brazilian has garnered 1.9% of the vote at the time of writing.

Richarlison (£6.9m) is the only other player over 1% while Marko Arnautovic (£6.9m) and Son Heung-min (£8.8m) were close at the time of writing. The West Ham man on 0.95% and Spurs’ South Korean international with 0.83%.

                  he played only 60 mins in the FA cup...that's an indication he will start

                  Not sure, Kdb is back, mahrez was a sub midweek, raheem didn't play at all.
                  Wouldn't risk any city player this week.

                  I own Sane but I will go for Mo

              Sane.

              I expect Delph to come in at LB, which means he should start.

                B or E for me - I'd still captain Auba regardless

                    Son and Lovren to Salah and Bedna?

                        having martial, pogba and Son in an head to head game seems a bit risky

                        Give it a couple of weeks and I’ll consider it..

                        No certainty as to whether he will start yet but I would love to have him in my team

                        Too soon and have to consider 27 blank

                        A bit early, can't see Pep dropping Bernardo after his performance against Liverpool. It's surely only a matter of time before KDB is in the starting 11 though, so he will be a viable option soon.

                      6 days, 19 hours ago

                      Is Redmond likely to play up front with Austin/Ings out?

                      Wondering about Hazard/Martial to Salah/Redmond, but I appreciate that might sound mental.

                        Lots of injuries but what's stopping Gabbiadini or Long from playing?

                            Gabbiadini is leaving, Long is turd.

                              Long turd to lead the line

                            Which other players do u have in the midfield ?

                              Anderson Martial Son Hazard Camarasa currently

                            Looks likely he will play up top. Gabbi on his way to Sampdoria

                        3. Nuno

                          so Matip or Fabinho alongside VVD? any ideas which one?

                            By his comments I'd say Fabinho this week. Don't think he'll want to risk Matip yet.

                          3. Fergus1107

                            6 days, 18 hours ago

                            Fabs.

                            Matip is average at best when he's fit.

                            Fab. He got MOTM on Liverpool Official twitter on Monday

                            6 days, 18 hours ago

                            I think he'll "risk" Matip as he looked far more reassured alongside VVD earlier in the season. It's one thing running with a non specialist CB in a Cup game quite another to risk it in the EPL. Im sure Matip has been ticking along in the gym whilst recovering from his collar bone injury so fitness shouldnt be an issue.

                          Aubameyang, Lingard & Yedlin >>> Barnes, Salah & Bednarek.

                          Concerned about Aubameyang but I think Salah should outscore him over the next 5/6 comfortably.

                            just Yedlin to Bednarek this week

                            As above. Just Yedlin

                          Kane Auba
                          Button - AWB - Jimenez - Doherty

                          Thanks to KopKloppers and Caldracula for their advice on previous page, I might be able to decide on a move this week with the 2ft's.

                          What's the most useful move?
                          A) Fabs to Guaita
                          B) Martial to Richarlison (or Pereya/Fraser)
                          C) Other

                            What to do?

                            1. Martial, Kamara, Kolasinac, Fabiański -> Bernardo Silva, Rashford, Bednarek, Button ( later I will switch Stekelenburg to Ryan, and Diangana to Puncheon) (-8 next week)

                            2. Fabianski to Button, and Sane for Martial, later Diangana to Puncheon (-4 this week)

                            My team: Fabianski Stekelenburg
                            Doherty Digne TAA AWB Kolasinac
                            Salah Pogba Martial Richarlison Diangana
                            Kamara Aubameyang Kane
                            1.7 ITB, one free transfer?

                            What to do? Thanks guys!

                              Play AWB or Jimenez this week?

                              1. Eric Banternaaa

                                AWB. Jiminez has scored 3 and assited 3 against top 6 this season so tough decision.

                                  I'd play AWB.

                                2FT 0.1 ITB, Cant decide on transfer, too many options :S

                                Ederson
                                Robertson Trippier AWB
                                Sane Salah Pereyra Richarlison
                                Jimenez Kane Rashford

                                Button-Holebas-Bennet-Billing

                                A) Bamba or Camarasa --> Holebas or Billing (Save 1 FT)
                                B) Trippier & Billing --> TAA & Camarasa (play 352)
                                C) Robertson & Trippier --> TAA & Alonso

                                I think ill go B, although i would double up on Liverpool Defense..

                                Still cant decide whether Son -> Salah (c) for a hit is worth it. Dont think I can trust Haz with armband.

                                  Def cannot trust Haz w armband. Doesn’t mean he won’t haul. No one else you can cap this week?

                                I've hesitant about having united in this week since they're playing spurs... is this a big mistake?

                                I could do Auba > Rash & Rich > Haz?

                                  Not worth it this week - the former could easily outscore the latter

                                  Youll more then likely be getting rid of Son next week. Id roll it now and get Sane.

                                  Martial or FAnderson, next 5 GW's?

                                    Raher Siggy or Rich than either, but probably Martial out of those 2

                                        6 days, 18 hours ago

                                        I agree on Rich, but I'm taking a 4 point hit downgrading one of them to get Salah!

                                          It's a tough one - Martial has the better fixtures but Anderson more nailed

                                    Sup with the inaccuracy of fplstatistics at this point of the year? Had Salah to rise and fAnderson to drop.

                                        Emery liking Iwobi on left atm, so could easily be on bench, but could also start up front with Auba out left - impossible to call as Emery always unpredictable with his lineups

                                        Thanks both ..i might be doing Haz/Jimrmez>>5.7 (delodeou-brooks)/Kane next week tho so hazard capt farewell no?

                                            How are you in the rankings? in your mini leagues? if you need a differential i'd definitely go Aguero - city back to their best and Aguero's had some rest..

                                            I'm a biased united fan but I don't think brighton away will be a walk over, why i'm swaying away from Salah....

                                            I'd probably go Aguero > Hazard > Salah,

                                        Team looking ok? Not owning Salah means a big sofa for the Pool game, and I know Martial isnt very favored on here, but giving him another chance.

                                        Doherty first on bench.

                                        Rolling transfer to assess what to do next week. Possibilities of getting Salah or a City midfielder in next week.

                                          Then with the money left I can do Mitro > Rashford next week and look to bring in TAA for Digne further down the line. Thoughts?

                                            Personally keeping Sterling for this GW and giving him the armband then bringing in Salah the following GW and making him (C)

                                            I think your plan sounds good. Removing Sterling any gameweek is risky, but it's riskier going without Salah..

                                              Cheers, I know it’s risky, especially as Sterling has a rest midweek. But I think Salah could potentially be worth it

                                              Removing sterling the week he’s got the worst team in the league? Personally not sure about that. City got the scoring touch back it seems... and now with KDB and Dilva back and fit I’m sure they’re gonna be smashing them in...

                                                Would you get rid on Hazard over Sterling instead? (If you really wanted Salah)

                                          Was planning to do Son+Auba>Redmond+Kane next week and then FAnderson>Eriksen/Pogba the week after, but the Ings injury news has put a spanner in the works - feels annoying to take him out when he'll be back in two weeks time and I'll want him back then anyway, but I'm concerned my bench won't be able to cover it well. Hojbjerg>Camarasa a good move maybe?

                                            Ings to Barnes. Redmond is a risky pick, albeit cheap

                                                Got to be Salah.. Biggest reason I wildcarded

                                                  Yeah - I also wildcarded this week, and I'm pretty tempted by Auba also - above article makes a good case!

                                                    I'm tempted too, but will be happy with his points anyway as he is a differential in my ML. If Salah goes nuts and Auba (c) blanks it's a lot more depressing 🙂

                                            Better option (other keeper is Button)?

                                            A) Guaita (WAT Liv Sou FUL)
                                            B) Fabianski (ARS Bou Wol LIV)

                                              A+money and better defence
