Captain Sensible

Which Liverpool player is the best FPL captain for Double Gameweek 24?

Liverpool are the main focus of the Double Gameweek 24 captaincy debate as their promising assets have two relatively appealing fixtures to play in.

However, selecting someone to trust the armband with has been a difficult decision for many of us.

To help decipher the puzzle, we’ve been running the rule over all the candidates ahead of Tuesday’s deadline, using their underlying data as well as the defensive data of their upcoming opposition.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area, only those signed up via either a season-long, monthly or discounted package can access it in full.

Captain Poll

Following his toplessly-celebrated goal against Manchester United, Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) is the front-runner in the Double Gameweek 24 captain poll.

So far, he has accrued the support of 42.5% of the voters, 17% more than his price-mate Sadio Mané (£12.4m), who sits on 25.5%.

The Senegalese international’s cause may have taken a hit after back-to-back blanks against Spurs and Manchester United, matches in which Salah registered an assist and a goal.

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) comes in as the best-of-the-rest having earned the support of 15.6%.

The right-back has not blanked since Gameweek 16, registering either a clean sheet, an assist or a goal in every match since then, averaging 10 points per game in that time.

Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) is further below the main pack, backed by just 4% of the voters.

That may be of great encouragement to those considering the Brazilian, who has been involved in more away league goals than any Liverpool player this season (eight).

Jack Grealish (£6.6m) is the most popular single Gameweek player so far, earning 2.4% of the votes ahead of Aston Villa’s meeting with Watford on Tuesday night.

Five goals and one assist in the last two matches for Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) has not convinced many to look past Liverpool for Double Gameweek 24.

The Manchester City man, who faces Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, has been selected as the best captain option by just 1.5%.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.7m) and Divock Origi (£5.2m) are the only other options on more than 1%.

Meanwhile, only 0.6% have the voters have gone for Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) as the best captain candidate despite the Double Gameweek on offer for the left-back.

    Does Auba become eligible in GW 25 or 26? Thanks.

      25.

      I'm tempted to get him in then.

      It's on the FPL site... Just check his info there...

      Looking at him too

      Question for me is whether it’s 25 for a hit or - more likely - 26 for free.

  2. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    A) Bench Richarlison for Kelly (SOU)
    B) Richarlison to Grealish (-4)

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      A

  3. EgyptianKing

    Mates start one for this GW:

    Cantwell, Lundstram, Zouma, Greenwood

    Cheers all!

    1. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Greenwood

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Thanks!

        My fear is a 10 min appearance and 1 point....

        If he starts he can do very well though!

    2. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Greenwood

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Cheers! Think he’ll start?

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Greenwood surely? Nice fixture and could even start.

    4. what's my name
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Greenwood

    5. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      GW

    6. EgyptianKing
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Seems unanimous!

      Greenwood will be then 🙂

  4. Tmel
    • 9 Years

    Williams or Lascelles a better medium term option?

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Lascelles until (his) season ends

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      If you're playing 3 at the back most weeks, maybe get both?

  5. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

    1 month, 3 days ago

    My GW24 move will be an uninspiring Martial => Sarr transfer reversal after my nice punt had a MOTM performance, underperformed vs his xGI, and got injured ahead of the plum Villa game 🙁

    But the GW25 move is much more exciting. Soy to Lascelles. Happy days...

  6. StopItHarold
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Two options:

    1. Aguero and Mahrez
    or
    2. Vardy and DeBruyne

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      1 as Vardys fixtures turn
      Mahrez should at least start the next 2.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      2 for me, safety of starts

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      2. You don't want 20m of players doing a no-show some weeks.

      1. StopItHarold
        • 3 Years

        Sorry i forgot to say im on a free hit!!

  7. ElliotJHP
    • 7 Years

    Is there a reliable Saints source out there? Danny Ings will he won't he is killing me.

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      There have been comments that he will be rested at some point.
      Look out for early team news.

  8. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    For those like me who go for Salah and mane , do you intend to ditch one after the dgw ? Will be a tough job in view of the fixtures...

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Plan on swapping one of them out in a two part move to get Auba in .

    2. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I see absolutely no reason to sell either of them

      Why?

      Chasing Aguero?

    3. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I think your team will suffer too much so ditch eventually.
      Especially once ucl starts

    4. Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I got TAA Salah Mane and trying to hold them long as possible. Fixtures looks too good.
      Maybe ditch when rotation hits.

    5. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Nope. Especially now that Vardy isnt performing as expected, he can leave for cash

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yep think I'll keep too. Captain will be a tricky decision every gw though

  9. Salarrivederci
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Start Doucouré or Greenwood?
    Doucouré looks dangerous & involved, and Villa will concede.
    Greenwood might start at home against Burnley, and if he does he surely has a higher chance of a haul.

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Id say doucoure better form

    2. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      GW

    3. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Id risk greenwood.

    Ryan
    Taa,William,Robbo
    Mane,Kdb,Martial,Mahrez
    Deeney,Ings,Vardy

    Button Cantwell,Sidibe,Lund

    Good to go GW 24 guys ? Have 1FT and 0.00 ITB, any changes needed?

  11. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    GTG?

    Hendo
    TAA(c), VVD, Robbo
    KDB, Son, Martial, Maddo
    Vardy, Jimmy, Ings
    (Mccarthy, Lundy, Luiz, Reid) +1.7 ITB

    Was going to TC TAA... But I think just the (c) is enough - if he hauls I shall GLADLY take the points 🙂

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Yup looks good.

    2. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Wow
      1st time I see the triple up and for a dgw.
      Imagine they keep the 2 cs and you get a few assists or goals.
      Could be genius could be madness

      1. Mo Salah No Mane
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Defensive triple up

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        It's going to be painful to watch 🙂

    3. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Triple Pool DF. Wowzers!

      Your season is either going to crash and burn (couple of goals apiece with an assist or two thrown in there for Mo & Mane- triple captained by many) or you are going to be a hero who is looking at a HUGE green arrow (2 Pool cleanies, a monster TAA haul and a VVD header from a corner).

      I'd say Good luck, but I went for Mane & Salah. So I won't 😉

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Haha - I totally agree - it's a pivotal GW where recent gains from the triple defence could easily be wiped out if Mane & Salah turn up

    4. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      You don't REALLY wanna know if you're gtg right? Great setup that probably has been paying for ages now...

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah it's been Churning out points last few weeks - really hoping that continues - but equally it has to derail somewhere along the line

    5. Daniel S.
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      if there is a CS for Liverpool I will thinking about you.

      What is the rank now?

      Go with Tripple C for TAA

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Ta!

        Still between Mark & Magnus on the OR... Was thinking the TC but the team is already risky enough, and a captain haul from TAA will do me just fine if it somehow managed to transpire 🙂

        1. Daniel S.
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          and when you will have TC?

  12. _Ninja_

    Rico/Kelly to Williams/Tanganga this week? If so which ones. Cheers. 0.8m itb.

    Ryan
    TAA - Soy - Kelly
    Salah - Mane - Maddison - KDB
    Vardy - Ings - Maupay

    Button Traore Rico Lundy

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Id say Rico > Williams

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Rico > Williams
      Have you considered Lascelles?

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah might do kelly to lascelles next week. Dont see a cleabie at everton. Cheers

    Thanks, David. V useful Liverpool article. I’m worried Salah may be rested in 2nd game - only 2 days off before GW25 match v Soton.

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Doubt it

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Don't overthink it 🙂

    3. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Why is GW 25 vs Soton more important than West ham?

    4. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      There's a nice gap between the first and second fixture. It's the later DGW's that are going to throw up big rotation issues as they are usually Sat/Sun - Tue/Wed games

    5. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      These players play 3 days later most weeks the CL is on so i dont see it being an issue.

  14. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    If you are not using the TC chip today, when are you planning to play it ?

    GW37 looks best for BB
    GW34 could be a single GW for all clubs if postponed fixtures are moved to midweek, if not FH is an option.
    GW28 could also be a single GW if it's postponed fixtures are moved to midweek

    The only way Pool can have a DGW34, is if the are knocked out in the FA Cup in the 5th round, and City won't have one that GW either if they are still in the FA Cup.

    1. Greenbackbøøg…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      So there could be only 1 dgw this year?

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        This GW and GW37 could be the only ones.

    Can't decide who to triple captain? Read this and come to your own conclusion, helped me decide on Mane.

    https://twitter.com/Legomane_FPL/status/1218996238483382275

    Fantastic thread.

    1. Daniel S.
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah was injured

    2. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mane, Salah ans TAAvall great options. We have to remember, Salah was playing through an injury earlier in the sesson and also Milner was taking the pens.

      If you see pool getting 2 cleanies the TAA is the best option.

    3. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      This makes TAA the best choice

  17. Joe_Carman
    1 month, 3 days ago

    D'ya think it's worth taking a punt on Grealish for a 4 point hit?

    2.1ITB, 0FT

    Ryan
    TAA, Soy, Robertson
    Traore, Mane, Madders, KDB
    Ings, DCL, Vardy

    button, kelly, lundstram, dendo

    Thinking swapping out Traore for Grealish for the double GW?

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Not for a hit
      Traore could easily get something against Liverpool

  18. EmreCan Hustle
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    4 Liverpool players and then Jack Grealish at 5th. What?

    1. Big Hands Barry

      Naa

    2. redsallstars

      1. Big Ping
        • 2 Years

        Thanks and thinking the same, could do Mount to Trossard instead this week, possibly better...

    If I don’t triple captain Mane, is it a good thing or a bad thing for me if he scores as just a regular captain? I’m trying to figure out whether I should laugh or cry if he explodes

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      still good - his EO will be lower than 200%

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Might be close to that

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I'd be more worried about Salah, Firmino, TAA etc, at least you will still be getting the majority of Mane TC points if you captain him.

  22. jorgenoj
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which option?

    A) Firmino + Maddison
    B) Mane + Greenwood

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      2

    2. redsallstars

  23. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Do we expect Saints to score against Palace? I'm looking to start Kelly + Guaita, but could be tempted to bench Kelly, and play Greenwood?

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      do the latter

  24. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    start Lunds Rico or Targett?

    Currently on Targett?

  25. Andrew

    Triple captain this week?

    1. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      yep

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Yes for me

      1. Andrew
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I'm thinking about it but it feels wrong for some reason, do you think it's just because we are using it earlier than normal?

    3. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Must be

    4. thegaffer82

        Sorry I didn't word my question very well, I meant are people using TC this week.

          Theres a poll for that too mate. About 60% using it this week.

    TAA triple C anyone?

    1. Big Hands Barry

      yep

  27. Bury94

    So hard to concentrate at work when I can't stop thinking about who to TC!

    1. Daniel S.
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      It's simple. You have only 3 choices.

      TAA
      Mane
      Salah

      It's coin toss practically. Anything can happen.

  28. Daniel S.
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Apparently Jose had a training bust up with Rose. It's starting. I am surprised it took so long.

    1. EmreCan Hustle

      Source?

  29. Fantasyamateur

    Was looking forward to finally get rid of Pope, but might just have to keep for another week with Richarlison injured.

    Pope
    TAA - Soyuncu - Rico
    Salah (TC) - Mane - Cantwell - Maddison
    Vardy - Maupay - DCL

    Bench: Stekelenburg, Richarlison, Lundstram, Reid.

    1FT and 1.9M ITB.

    I see two alternatives:
    A: Cantwell to Grealish so I can keep Richarlison for the next two fixtures (although will give me headache, but could save me in case of rotation?)
    B: Straight swap with Rich to Grealish (Martial, Son etc also an option if Rich goes).

    Thoughts?

  30. Liverpool and Captain for GW24

    Let's keep this one simple...

    Which 3 Liverpool players are you going for?

    Who is your captain?

    Most importantly...why?

    1. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Robbo, Mane (TC)

      Reason is I'd TC Mane even if I owned Salah (which would require selling KDB or major surgery)

    2. Lecky Legs FC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mane (©) biggest threat out if the three, Firmino (VC) and VVD

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah TC Mane VC TAA.
      I'm content - that's enough reason. But mo's ownership being a bit lower does offer a real opportunity.

    4. Jamb0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, VVD, Salah (tc)

      Reason is ceiling, lower ownership and because I think he's due a haul

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Same

    5. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Mane, Salah. Going to 'Ip Dip Doo' at 6:25pm on which one for Salah or Mane to captain

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Don't do that. Stressful 🙂

      2. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        After 3 captain blanks i tried a dice Saturday but that gave me another

      3. Paulsonthemove
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 3 days ago

        I used a random online selector, it chose Salah (out of Mane & TAA).

    6. Chelsea91
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Taa,Robbo,Mane(c)

    7. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah Bobby and Taa
      Tc Salah
      Because he is generally more explosive and will be on a high after that man United goal.
      Also he is always the most advanced Liverpool player.
      Always gets the best chances to score and on pens.
      Must be tc this week because I don't recall dgws with a week gap.
      That's gold in itself.

      1. Nüno Vippan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        same here, good luck

    8. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah (TC), TAA, VVD

      All choices, including TC, based on not ripping my team apart for the sake of one week. Still, will be hiding behind the sofa every time Mané breaks

    9. CROCosta
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah, Mane, Gomez
      Do have a free transfer and extra 2mil so Gomez might become Robbo.
      Triple captain on Mane currently due to him having better away form then Salah this year.

    10. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah(c)
      Mane(vc)
      TAA
      ...subject to change...

      Not TCing since Iaccide

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        *accidentally played TC for a total of 9 points...

      2. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Why Salah v Mane?

        Given you also own both, I’m interested in hearing why people are choosing one over the other for the armband.

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Salah on pens, and slight differential

          1. Pieterke30
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            You mean like Vardy and Deeney? 🙂

            Salah being on pens is actually a worry for me. Nth worse than your TC missing a pen.

    11. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      For me I'm going Mane, TAA and then probably Robertson.

      Won't be nice to watch without Salah but it lets me upgrade my team elsewhere and I could do with a reliable defence.

      Triple captain 100% being activated. Have no doubts about using it at all.

      1. andy85wsm
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        (On Mane) 😉

      2. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Don’t you think Robbo is wasting a spot? Salah over Robbo surely?

        Especially beyond these fixtures, you’ve got to think LFC will hammer a lot of the teams.

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Thinking beyond these fixtures is why I'm likely going Robertson 🙂

          Gives me 3 x Liverpool but also money to upgrade elsewhere.

      3. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Salah, Firmino and VVD it is then. Cheers 😉

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Oh you

    12. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah Mane TAA
      Undecided on captaincy or whether to TC. Will probably not TC but have it on Salah. He's performed well even in away games since his return from injury and is guaranteed on pens.

    13. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Robbo, Mane (TC)

      I do fancy VVD, but I had Robbo and Mane going into this gameweek. TAA has been my biggest threat for weeks so it's more of a Shield move.

    14. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Have had TAA, Mane, Salah in place since last week.
      Saving a FT to potentially switch to double defence soon, I think that will prove better value for this good run of fixtures, particularly as attention turns to the CL.

      TC on Salah, because I don't think I can reasonably predict who's most likely to score more, but I know my ML leader won't have Mo.

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Good luck Mantis - similar logic to me on that. Rival is main tussle has double defence and Mane (TC), so it's a proper face off.

        1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Cheers, GL to you as well!

          My rival has been busy over the last week and gotten priced out of his planned move for one of VVD or Firmino, I think he's going in with just Mane and TAA - big opportunity for me

    15. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mane, Salah Trent.

      They are the most explosive options imo, Double defence also viable and perhaps the better value choice.

      Salah will be my triple captain. He is my favourite player in FPL and also my favourite player as I am a Liverpool fan. Also he has a lower ownership than Mane so if he scores big it should help me improve my rank more, bit worried about the away form but with 2 bites at the cherry and also being on penalties with Milner out I'm hoping for at least a double figure haul

    16. The Dribbler
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Mo and Mane. will triple c TAA because I like to live dangerously -most in top 10k won't do this and TAA is just as likely to haul as the others imo.

    17. tisza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah, TAA and brought in Mane.

      Mane into cover ownership.
      Salah TC - penalties & lower ownership.

      Tbh If I had started with Mane (and not Salah) i would have brought in Firmino.

      Hopefully carry 2 liverpool mids for a couple of weeks then swap one for a 2nd Liverpool defender

    18. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, VVD, Robbo

      Captain TAA (don't think I'll triple captain)

      The why is primarily his FPL ability & form 🙂

      1. The Dribbler
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        triple defence - balls out dude. good luck!

      2. Ian & Zen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Triple defence - love it
        Also you have an easy captain decision with TAA being easily best
        Not sure I can live with the stress of ‘pool conceding in 90th minute - 20 points (if TC) + bonus pts riding on a clean sheet or not
        Good luck

      3. Dananz
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        You're not alone! I've also put up the red wall. All or nothing! Victory or death!!!

        (Or maybe just lots of fantasy points... Or not...)

    19. Celt Abroad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Mane and Salah.

      Will TC Mane because he has better stats away from home than Salah.

    20. Boris Bodega: Holly's …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mané - Triple captain
      TAA - Vice captain
      Robertson

    21. Tysoe
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah Mane TAA

      Think i will actually TC TAA. He only needs to get 1 clean sheet for a decent score and any attacking returns would be massive. Appreciate Salah and Mane could easily score a goal in each game but i think there's just as much chance as Trent getting 1 clean sheet and say 1 assist. Also more likely to play 2x 90 mins than Salah/Mane

    22. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah tc TAA VVD with some healthy anytime goalscorer money in Mane, which will result in 6 assists

    23. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Double defence - Liverpool have been keeping it tight and no blowing teams away in the attack.

      Mane triple captain - he hasn’t gone 3 weeks without a return. I’d Even consider him just for the West Ham game, let alone the bonus wolves.

      Let’s not forget last years 2 goals from Trent crosses

    24. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA Salah Bobby
      Firmino TC- anyone else here with me?

      I like to pick captain with form and Firmino has that away from home, is usually involved in some capacity and can get on streaks not to mention he often picks up max bonus points when he returns

      Overall rank has slipped so also chasing

      1. A girl has no name
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Am tempted, though owning him is a differential in itself; also he gets a point less for a goal and clean sheet. He is a BAP magnet though.

      2. Black Belt Jones
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        TAA Mane Firmino (TC)

        I'm putting it on Firmino because his away form is good and I liked the look of him at the weekend. I see he's not a popular choice on here, but I'm trying my best to use a combination of the eye test and my gut on captaincy choices now (although it still doesn't always work out!).

        I can't see a better opportunity to play the TC chip than this DGW, and I think it will cause less head scratching down the line to get it out of the way now.

        Was thinking of captaining Trent but cannot handle the stress of hoping for the clean sheets, particularly on a TC!

    25. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Quite a nice mix from everyone!

      Salah Mane TAA for me, and I can't decide between the two midfielders.

      Might go down to the wire..

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        50/50 really. Risk v reward. bigger green if you go Salah and he hauls but a bigger red if Mane hauls and Salah doesnt.

        1. Geoff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          I haven't thought too much about that tbh! I just want to figure out who will score more.

          I know that's the game we all play, but I'm really trying not to think about ownership

      2. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Same here. But as a player, personal preference is Mané as I often find Salah to be more egoistical - which is generally good in FPL, I know.

    26. Lord Heskey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Boby
      Salah
      Robo (C)
      Lowest ownership Salah

      1. Lord Heskey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Salah

    27. Simon Says...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Salah (TC) and Firmino.

      Big pull towards captaining Firmino as his away form is so strong, but two good fixtures for Salah is too tempting.

      Best team in the league, one of the gold standard explosive FPL assets who is in form and I think he'll play both - for those reasons, triple captain chip activated.

    28. St. Joseph
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mosalah

    29. GS456
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Was all set for Salah but he’s scored once away from anfield all season in the league

    30. Spockazulu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mane, Salah, TAA

      TC on TAA

      Because my rank is bad and I need to go with the most differential of the 3

    31. The Albatross
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Mane & Salah.
      TC on Mane, Salah, TAA, Mane, Salah, Mane, Salah, TAA, Salah, Mane... aaaaaahh!!!

    32. iL PiStOlErO
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mo(C), Bobby, TAA. Didn't want to do Mane&Mo cause it cripples my team and it is just not worth it for one week. Also Bobby looked very good last few games, I think that he will have a good double week. Good luck to all of us with the same combo.

    33. Biancazzurri
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mane TC. Because he looked their best/most involved attacking player. +Salah and TAA (vc).

    34. CroatianHammer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Gomez = obv. Attacking value & defensive value.
      Salah (C) = penalties, runs into the area, general skill.

      TC chip being kept for the later weeks.

    35. ⓙⓚⓙⓚ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      TAA, Robbo, Mane (TC)

      Trent is a decent pick, but I don't trust defenders with the captaincy and I'm not gonna start now.

    36. G-Whizz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      TAA (TC), Salah and Mané for me...
