Captain Sensible

Who is the best captain for FPL Gameweek 7?

The Fantasy Premier League captaincy debate for Gameweek 7 continues to be wide open with a number of candidates all vying to be crowned the best option.

Manchester City and Liverpool both face fixtures that managers are finding hard to predict while Chelsea host Brighton and Spurs go up against a Southampton side with an unreliable defensive unit.

With so many options to consider, the Captain Sensible article is perhaps as important as its ever been.

As we do every single Gameweek, we have assessed the form of the leading candidates and the state of their upcoming opponents’ defences to see which ones tick the most boxes for captain success.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those who have signed up for the 2019/20 season can access it in full.

Captain Poll

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) has returned to the summit of the Fantasy Football Scout Captain Poll but for Gameweek 7, his majority is not a particularly sizeable one. This season, the most popular skipper each week has typically pulled in the support of roughly 40% but this weekend, Liverpool’s Egyptian star has just 26.1% of the votes at the time of writing.

He is not in bad form, of course, his assist against Chelsea last time out his seventh attacking return of the campaign after just six matches. Salah has score four goals in total, that assist at Stamford Bridge his seventh of the campaign.

Perhaps what is stopping him from enjoying a true domination of the Captain Poll is the venue of his next match. Preparing for a trip to face Sheffield United, Salah remains goalless on the road this season, all four of his Premier League strikes coming at Anfield in 2019/20 so far.

Furthermore, the Blades may have only kept one clean sheet at Bramall Lane since promotion but they are yet to be thrashed as a Premier League side. Their 3-5-2 system has proved hard to break down on more than one occasion in the last six matches, so it will always be hard for Fantasy managers to predict a goal glut against them.

Looking likely to secure second place in the poll is Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham (£7.5m), who has pulled clear of the chasing pack in the last few days.

Ahead of Brighton’s visit to Stamford Bridge, the centre-forward has been selected as the best captain option by 15.9% of voters in the poll.

That’s not surprising based on Abraham’s form considering that he has scored seven goals in his last four matches, including a hat-trick against Wolves in Gameweek 5.

Next opponents Brighton have had a mixed bag of away fixtures this season, so far keeping clean sheets at goal-shy Watford and Newcastle. However, their only road trip at a top-six side so far resulted in a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City, which arguably could have been a heavier defeat.

Support for Abraham has grown in recent days, perhaps influenced by his absence from midweek action and Raheem Sterling’s (£12.1m) involvement against Preston. On Tuesday, the two Englishman were tied on 12%, but the Chelsea man has pulled clear by 3% since then.

The Manchester City midfielder remains in a similar position, with 11.8% of the votes ahead of a trip to Everton.

Sterling did miss last week’s 8-0 demolition of Watford, and scored at Deepdale in the EFL Cup third round, but neither of those things should count against him for Gameweek 7.

The rest in Gameweek 6 means he is arguably one of the most likely starters at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon and so far this season, he has blanked away from home just once.

Sterling scored a hat-trick at West Ham on the opening weekend and also found the net in the Gameweek 3 trip to Bournemouth. He was also unfortunate not to get any attacking returns when Manchester City lost to Norwich as his header cannoned back off the post and Nicolas Otamendi (£5.5m) was close to converting a late cross.

Meanwhile, Everton have not kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 2 when they hosted a struggling Watford side. Since then they have conceded at least twice in every match home and away.

It is surprising then that both Sergio Aguero (£12.2m) and Kevin de Bruyne (£9.9m) are both backed by fewer than 10% in our latest captain poll.

Perhaps Fantasy managers are concerned about rotation ahead of next week’s Champions League hosting of Dinamo Zagreb but it seems unlikely that either of them will be benched given that neither played against Preston on Tuesday night.

Aguero is still yet to blank this season, scoring eight goals in six matches and providing two assists too but just 7.6% of the voters in our poll believe he is the best captain for Gameweek 7.

Meanwhile, de Bruyne has the support of just 4.6% after averaging nine points per game so far this season.

Completing the top five options in the poll is Tottenham’s Son Heung-min (£9.7m) who has the backing of 10.3%.

This weekend he faces a home match against Southampton having registered three attacking returns in his last two league outings.

Harry Kane (£11.0m) has also been considered for this match, but only 5.3% of the voters.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m) and Sadio Mané (£11.6m) have the backing of 3.1% and 2.9% ahead of the trip to Sheffield United.

Finally, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m), Jamie Vardy (£8.9m), Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) and Mason Mount (£6.6m) are the only other candidates with more than 1% of the vote.

    Which one would you loose for Mount:

    A - McGinn

    B - Cantwell

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A

    2. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      B if you have Pukki. Spread the risk. A if you don't. Northwich have good fixtures.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      1) Lose 😉
      2) McGinn (assuming that you bought Cantwell when he was cheap.

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Cantwell is an enabler at a very good price so no.
      Mcginn scoring well, his game is almost as easy as Chelsea game so no. Are you going to gain 4 much by transferring?
      Not IMO. I have the same dilemma.

        There's no Tierney, Holding and Bellerin on this list anymore. Tears in my eyes!

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Amazing turn around. Can’t wait for Bellerin to be fully back starting lots of exciting otamendia replacements emerging now

          1. OFord
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Bellerin is awful

                Not for emery he wasn’t. Literally the focal point of creativity

                  In attack soon they’ll be:
                  Laca
                  Kola Auba Ozil Pepe Bellerin
                  Guendouzi Torreriera
                  Luiz Holding

                  That looks so sexy

                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Tierney over Kola surely?

            I'm doing a mini wildcard with my 2FTs plus a hit. Looking to get rid of three of Haller, AWB, Zinchenko & Denoncker. Who should go?

            1. The 5% Team
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 18 days ago

              AWB, Zinc and Dend

            2. Ask Yourself
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              First 3 as Dendoncker is surely bench fodder and the rest are cack. You could probably get away with keeping Zinchenko though perhaps and just going for 2FTs

              1. Misteak
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Yeah I'm basically torn whether to keep Dendoncker and stick with a 442 or switch to a 352 by bringing in McGinn. If I stick with 442 then I can upgrade VvD next week. So over the next two GW's my moves would be...

                AWB > Soyuncu
                Zinchenko > Otamendi
                Haller > Abraham
                VvD > Trent

                1. Ask Yourself
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Haller Abraham and AWB/Zinchenko > Matip/Ota one of those or both of you’re scared of your bench defender in case Zinchenko doesn’t play

              • 10 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Depends whether Dendoncker's just a filler. If so then the first 3

            • 4 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Thoughts on the following for a hit:

            McGinn + Coleman -> TAA + Mount (-4)

            Would mean double pool defence with VVD

            1. Misteak
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Nice hit yo. Not keen on the double Liv defense but if there's a week to do it it's this week. You can get rid of VVD next week

                1 month, 18 days ago

                its between coleman Lundstram and Kelly so not great choice

                  1 month, 18 days ago

            • 1 Year

            Pope (Button)
            TAA Digne Ota (Lund Rico)
            Salah KDB Mount McGinn (Guendouzi)
            Kun Tammy Pukki

            0 ITB. How would you get Son into this team?

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Salah/Pukki to Son/Firmino? But I'd just go without Son

              downgrade one of Salah, KDB or Aguero, which you probably don't want to.

                Not a regular starter once Laca is back. Won’t have to rely on Xhaka to do all the central midfield running (ffs). Can either bench him or play him in a more comfortable role ahead of a more competent defensive LB in tierney

                    No 🙁 I mean once Laca and full backs are back he can finally abandon the midfield 3 with Torreira and Guebdouzi covering the poor full backs leaving Xhaka exposed to do all the midfield running. 4231 will make arsenal a fierce force

                        🙁 that was good analysis free of charge. I agree anyway. Should be Auba I think like when they turned it around vs Villa.

                    Auba owners. Looks like Laca back “in October” is pretty soon and could be next week. How do we feel about him being pushed on to the left? Is he worth 11m in that case or do we go elsewhere after he’s been so good to us x

                          Auba has been irresistible since playing in his position silly. Hopefully he gets that bournemouth game there too

                          Fair. Once the full backs are the ones emery wants it doesn’t matter where he plays in the front 3 he will be the man. I doubt i’ll Be worried all that much either.

                        bought him until laca back then reassess. feel his form and run of fixtures wil be game defining

                          Can’t go near Laca due to owning last year and just not being nailed especially around UEL games but I have an open mind for Pepe as he will play 90 mins regularly he just needs to be more attacking which I think he can be once Bellerin is back

                        I don’t think Auba owners are concerned about it

                        Laca back late October it said...sounds like GW10 or so

                          Oh fair that would make him a strong captaincy option for next week then. Could be GW9 in that case after IB even. It’s just got me all sad he’s been so good

                      Should I upgrade Dend to Cantwell or is that too much of a benching headache?

                      Vvd to Trent (-4) as a long term move?

                          Was thinking of doing Digne to Ota next week as well though

                          OGS keeps teasing itbut never happens
                          Worth the risk though vs a meh defender

                        Haller scored a brace away at Watford. Could he do it again at Bournemouth?

                        b) Wesley and Zinchenko -> Abraham and Tomori (- 4pts)
                        c) Pukki and Sterling -> Abraham and Salah (- 4pts)
                        d) do nothing....

                        Spurs have upcoming fixture with BAYERN! (home)
                        Chelsea have upcoming fixture with LILLE (away)
                        Liverpool have upcoming fixture with Salzburg (home) + Sheffield are strong and organized in defence!

                        Can Son, Salah or/and Abraham be rested?

                        Anything worth a hit? (1.3 ITB for much needed defensive boost).
                        Bench order, starting lineup look okay?

                          not a fan of double Norwich in away match

                          Think I'd replace Dunk or Kelly for a hit even
