Captains

Captain Sensible – Deciding between Salah and Mané

Fantasy Premier League managers who thought the Blank Gameweek 31 captaincy would be a simpler one may be disappointed after reading this latest article.

The depleted nature of this round of fixtures, with just 10 sides in action in the wake of the FA Cup quarter-finals, has gone some way to trimming the candidates for the armband.

But those at the top end of our poll are quite hard to separate, with form, statistical comparison and the famed eye-test all playing a part in a tricky decision, largely centred around Liverpool assets.

As per usual, the Captain Sensible article assesses each of the best options using data from the Fantasy Football Scout members area.

Captain Poll

Despite registering just a goal and an assist in his last seven Premier League outings, Mohamed Salah (£13.4m) is still the captain poll leader for Blank Gameweek 31. At the time of writing, the Egyptian has 47% backing.

That has him enjoying an advantage over colleague Sadio Mané (£9.9m) of 23 percentage points. The Senegalese international currently has the backing of 24% of voters in the poll, despite outscoring Salah over the last seven Gameweeks by an aggregate score of 58 points to 26.

Callum Wilson (£6.4m) is the key differential this week according to the people, with the Bournemouth striker looking at a 5% backing ahead of Newcastle’s visit to the Vitality Stadium. In his return from injury in Gameweek 30, the Englishman found the net and provided an assist for colleague Ryan Fraser (£6.2m).

The Cherries midfielder also features in our poll’s top five with 3.4% of our voters believing he is the best captain option for Blank Gameweek 31. The return of Wilson has made a big impact on Fraser, hence the interest, with him involved in four goals in his last two with the forward, compared to zero in his last eight without him.

Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) completes the top five in the vote with a 4.3% share. The fact that he is in the chasing pack for the best differential option is no surprise, considering the Leicester man’s five goals in as many Premier League outings. Also, Burnley are without a clean sheet at Turf Moor since Gameweek 20.

Even though he was the hero for Chelsea in Gameweek 30, Eden Hazard (£10.9m) has the support of just 2.5% ahead of a trip to Goodison Park. That may have more to do with the fact that he has not scored away from home since Gameweek 17.

Roberto Firmino (£9.2m), Marko Arnautovic (£6.8m) and Gonzalo Higuaín (£9.6m) are the only other options to have more than 1% of the votes in the poll.

      Essential: Wilson, Salah

      Differential: Barnes

      Avoiding: Rondon

      Gains: Bench boosting a 15 man DGW squad in 32 (leaves me with approx 6 start players without transfers in GW33).

      Fab
      Pereira - Luiz - TAA

        Genuinely curious, how do you ensure on fielding a 15 man DGW team when the fixtures haven't been confirmed, and are heavily dependent on the outcome of the FA cup?

        1. Holding Mee Bong

          1 month, 6 days ago

          All based on probability, but you're right it's a risk and it was one I was willing to take.

          Trip Wolves, Trip United, Trip Chelsea, Trip City and Brighton are the main foundations which look pretty certain. Some of the FA cup fixtures could go against me.

          1. HamezMace
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            So you've been building your team over the last few weeks to allow for this?
            Do you expect to take many hits going into GW32?

            1. HamezMace
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              ...and are you planning to WC33, when you'll have at least 6 players (3x Utd, and 3x Wolves) that won't play.

              1. Holding Mee Bong
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                Correct, for the past 5 gameweeks. Will need -4 or -8 for 32 depending on FA cup results.

                Yes 33 is an issue and I don't have my 2nd WC (sounds crazy I know), hoping to pull off something big in 32 and get some points on the board, I will have to hokie-kokie some assets between 33 and DWG35 with a few hits.

                1. HamezMace
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  If you don't have your 2nd WC then 33 is a major issue.
                  Assuming the cup results go your way to get 15 DGWers out from the teams you've said.
                  You'll have 13 of those 15 at least, not playing in GW33.

                  1. HamezMace
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 6 days ago

                    Sorry, Chelsea play in 33, so more like 11 of 15.

                  You're going to need plenty of hits if you plan tripling up on those teams in 32 that you mentioned above.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        TAA over Robertson?

    2. b91jh
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Essential: Salah, Mane, Wilson
      Differential: Almiron
      Avoid: Anderson, Arnie

    3. El Lobito

      Fab
      Robbo, Azpi, Rice
      C Salah, Mane, Haz, Scottish Haz
      VC Arnie, Vardy, Wilson

      Only concern is Robbo's starting or not. Tempted to change to VVD, as TAA faces a similar doubt

      1. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Robbo ought to start. Suspended from CL.

      2. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Why wouldnt Robbo start?

    4. Amey
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Essential: Pool triple up
        Differential: Mane ©, A. Barnes, Higuain, Clyne
        Avoiding: Injury prone player's like Arnie, Wilson
        Gain : FH in gw32 to pick most efficient 11 ( hopefully 😛 )

      • Black Knights
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Fab,
        Luiz, VVD, Rice
        Mane (C), Salah, Fraser, Hazard
        Arnie, Wilson, Vardy

        Salah, Mane, Vardy essential.

        No differentials. Perhaps Luiz is as close as it gets. Arnie maybe?

        A few rivals have Rondon but i'm happy to risk leaving him.

        I have at least 6 DGWers in 32. That could go up to 11 after fixtures rearranged, so i'll use a TC there. Will worry about 33 later.

      • pingissimus
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I’ve avoided Wilson - I’m slightly nervous but Huddersfield is just Huddersfield and the last time he was in any consistent form so was Mo!!!

          Gains? Not especially hopeful. If it happens it’ll be Fulham scoring but Liverpool attack scoring more - I suspect a lot are kicked into that double defence. I made my Mane move way back in 25 to steal this march

          1. DandyDon
              1 month, 6 days ago

              All this avoid Arnie advice Is nonsense - however his fixtures do take turn for the worse 33 onwards so you need to allow for a transfer there.

              1. pingissimus
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Oh I’m not avoiding Arnie - he’s the one I fear this weekend.

              1 month, 6 days ago

              I've only got 10, after taking a -4:
              Boruc
              Robertson - TAA - Luiz
              Hayden - Salah - Brooks
              Wilson - Vardy - Higuain

              Essential : Triple Liverpool, I've gone with double pool defence and Salah (C). Triple Bournemouth, got Wilson in fro the remainder of the season, hopefully.
              Differentials : Brooks I guess, and perhaps Hayden but I shan't hold my breath...

              Avoiding? : Would love to have Fraser, but in all honesty I was 0.2m short unless I took another hit, and I didn't feel it was worth it with no wildcard to rectify later on.

              I'll make a loss against those using FH chip, but happy just to field a half decent team.

              De Gea,

              Sterling (C), Hazard, Pogba
              Aguero, Rashford, Jimenez

              You didn't say just a free hit this week....

              Sterling and Aguero are essential.
              No differentials.
              Avoiding anyone not in the team above.
              I expect to make gains by scoring more points than other people.

              Essential: Mané, Salah, one Bournemouth attacking assett
              Differentials: Not having Mané ( 🙁 )
              Avoiding: No room for Chelsea defense
              Making gains: FH GW32 (hope springs eternal....)

              Essential:- Hazard + Mane + Salah + Vardy + Robbo/ TAA/ VvD
              Differential:- Wilson, ABarnes, Siggy
              Avoiding:- Leicester Defense
              Gains:- 10-15 points on Top 10k Average in GW 31 and another 10-15 points on Top 10k Average in GW 32

              Fabianski - Boruc
              Diop - Rice - TAA - Azpi - Tarkowski
              Salah - Mane - Hazard - Fraser - Siggurdson
              Barnes - Vardy - Wilson

              Will play 3-5-2 with Barnes, Diop, Tarkowski and Boruc on Bench

              Wilson - Vardy - Barnes

              2 Liv mids should demolish Fulham. Lanzini differential. Will need to review fitness on Fraser (probably get Brooks) and Robertson (VVD), but on FH. Not sure about Maguire, might get Ake or Cresswell

              Azpi Luiz Rice
              Salah Hazard Mane Fraser
              Firmino Arnie Wilson

              Most of the FH squad picks itself. Key debate for me is to go:
              A. Firmino + Azpi or
              B. Vardy + Robbo

              Essential
              Salah/Mané for captaincy and at least one Liverpool and West Ham defensive asset.

              Differentials
              Boruc, Diop and Higuain.

              Avoiding
              Leicester defence, West Ham attack.

              Gains
              Not been carrying likes of Anderson/Pereira and used transfers on probable DGW players like Sterling/Zaha with option to TC a player from City (ful, CAR) or United (WAT, wol).

                  Two questions:

                  1. Who to bring in for Aguero: Wilson, Vardy or Higuain?
                  2. Would you bring one of those in question 1 for Rashford (-4), and bench Felipe?

                    Probably Vardy. But Wilson would also be a good pick.

                  Still nowhere on my last decision. Anyone fancy helping pls do!

                  Bednarek -> Azpilicueta, Ake or D. Luiz
                  or
                  Pogba -> Maddison, Barnes or Tielemans.

                    Well Bednarek plays in 33, does that influence your decision?

                    I'd probably prefer to get Azplicueta or Luiz in this week, rather than any of those attackers to be honest.

                            I'd take 2 hits & get another 4 attackers.
                            Going by popular FH 32 strategy.
                            Pool triple attack could be one you can target as a differential

                        8 point hit gets you to 8. A lot of teams (like me) will only have 10

                              -8 and get 4 attackers/midfielders if you can.

                            Worth taking a couple of hits to get to 8 players. FH in 32.

                            i would save FH for gW 32...there's a big gap until then as well so potentially more DG's for more teams post FA cup. You can get a really strong 11 out for that will 9/10 players who have two games

                        If you FH now, you'll have a similar problem in blank GW33.

                        Hits you take now will also benefit you for GW33, and in some cases for the rest of the season.

                            Anderson is a bit of a reach on a FH.

                            I'd much prefer to take the Arnie gamble myself - you're not going to be locked into him and he could pay off massively.

                            Agree with above. Fabs over Boruc. Wouldn’t have Arnie on the bench, waste of money. Maybe Arnie in, Anderson to brooks, gives you a decent cheap back up on the bench.

                                Higuain yellow flagged thats what i was thinking with arnie on bench.
                                is 3 bornemouth attackers not a big risk against a newcastle team which is usually set up for 0-0 away from home?

                                  I think if Higuain was really a risk, Giroud wouldn’t of played 90 last night. Game was done sat half time.

                                  all good! if you're in a mini league workout what your rivals will do. This week is a lottery. Get to 32 with all your chips and you can make up any ground lost this week. I only have ten players and took four point hit BUT next week i am going to have the sexiest starting 11 ! 😉

                                  Bench A

                                  The problem with Anderson is that he’s now a little down the list of players you’d expect to return for WH. Snow and Lanzini are equally - well more - likely to return given they contribute with dead balls and advanced position in open play. Best case for Fa is probably one assist. Almirón is much more central to the Newcastle attack

                                Fabianski

                                Vardy / Barnes / - - -

                                Ederson // Pogba / Camarasa / A. Smith*

                                The two blanks are Aguero & Son. Which of the below looks better?

                                Feel like I will do:
                                1) Aguero/Son > Hazard/Wilson (-4)

                                What about any of the below, in addition?
                                A) Do nothing else
                                B) Camarasa > Fraser/Brooks (-8 total)
                                C) Digne > Luiz (-8 total)
                                D) Other?

                                Gutted I won't be able to bring in Mané without downgrading Salah, or a -12, so feels best to avoid that...

                                    Thanks. Seems sensible. Don't think Digne is going to get me many points in GW31 + GW33, but at least some of the recent articles have highlighted his creativity down a weak Chelsea flank.

                                  I wouldn’t bring in Hazard. He will likely have a blank in 33.

                                  Took -8 to bring in Wilson, Hazard

                                    Yep GTG. Good luck picking between Mané and Salah for C!

                                  Doing Sterling and Rashford > Hazard and Wilson for -4. Tempted to do Jiminez > Arnie for -8. I’m winning my ML but chasing down a career first Top 10k finish. I would lose 0.6 on Jimi if I sold.

                                  Madness or worth the risk?

                                  Rest of team:

                                  Mane – Salah – McNeil – Hazard
                                  Vardy – Wilson

                                    No for me, unless you’re planning on using your FH next week

                                      Definitely FH next week. Still Arnie feels risky though. Been a mixed bag in the past.

                                    I am holding onto Jimi for .05.
                                    Not quite sure why.

                                      I'll probably want him back, but feel like it might be worth the risk.

                                      Arnie is a transfer waiting to happen unless given clear green flag.
                                      I'd stick with 10 player's

                                    Fraser is a classic set up for him to pull out of the Scotland squad. Artificial pitch for first game as well which apparently he can’t play on without getting injured

                                      LEI defenders are due a clean sheet too, but I'm not holding my breath.

                                      Because of GW31 and GW33 which are blanks for city

                                        Is GW 33 definitely a blank for Man City then as website states they will play Cardiff at home?

                                        Doherty had started to feel like a bit of a disappointment before I got rid last week, so my vote's with Kola. Arsenal have more to play for.

                                      Lanzini, any takers?
                                      Seems a good alternative to the likes of Maddison/HBarnes/Siggy , given WHU easier fixture

                                          If I was free hitting he would be in for me, looked very sharp considering long layoff he has had.

                                            Would be for a -4 for me. But effectively -2 given GW33

                                                Who would he be replacing?

                                                  Maitland-Niles, who might play in GW33

                                                      I’d probably go for it personally, and I’m normally hit adverse.

                                                At least 2 - 32, and 35 - I believe.

                                                We might get an odd extra fixture - probably involving Brighton.

                                              Already have Alisson, Robertson + Pereira.

                                              Hi guys, is Jiménez > Wilson worth a -4 ?

                                              Leaves me with 12 but includes TAA and Higuain doubts and would enable me to have Digne only sub in case one of the doubts doesn't play.

                                                Also means I have Wilson for 33 after FH 32...

                                                I would get Wilson, yes.

                                                G2G? Don't want to loose Jiminez as will want in WC and got at 5.5. Should get 10/11 in GW33.

                                                  Very strong, G2G. Agree about not losing Jimi ahead of DGW32

                                                      Thanks. I may well go Jota over him in 32 but 34 onwards I will want him for sure and my whole squad value is very poor anyhow.
