Captain Poll

Vote in the Gameweek 25 FPL captain poll

Liverpool’s victory over West Ham United brought Double Gameweek 24 to a close and we can now turn our full attention to the coming weekend’s fixtures.

The Gameweek 25 captain poll is up and running and you can cast your vote either via the sidebar or at the foot of this article.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is currently the runaway leader of our poll at the time of writing, having garnered over 50% of the vote even before he scored the opening goal on Wednesday evening.

With the other teams in the top seven playing one another, Liverpool’s home fixture against Southampton has evidently caught the eye of the Fantasy community – although the resurgent Saints will provide tougher opposition than they would have when struggling for form two months ago.

The fact that Sadio Mane (£12.3m) is expected to miss Saturday’s match at Anfield may also be a contributing factor, with there being no ‘split vote’ among the two premium Liverpool midfielders.

Fresh off the back of his seventh clean sheet in eight Gameweeks, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) is third in our poll.

The Reds haven’t dropped a point on home soil this season, scoring 31 goals and conceding on only nine occasions at Anfield – both of those totals are unsurpassed among Premier League clubs.

It’s perhaps a case of form over fixture as Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) sits second in our captain poll at present, despite Manchester City being away at Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs, of course, are far from invincible and have conceded in five of the six home league matches that Jose Mourinho has overseen.

The Lilywhites indeed have kept only two clean sheets since the Special One’s appointment back in November, despite having allowed fewer big chances than any other club in that time.

With regard to Aguero’s form, the Argentinean striker has plundered eight FPL attacking returns and 45 points in his last four appearances.

Even a benching in Gameweek 24 couldn’t stop him scoring, with the in-form premium striker emerging as a second-half substitute to net the winner at Bramall Lane.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) is worth a shout in this fixture, too: he has racked up 12 attacking returns (nine of them assists) in 11 away matches this season.

No midfielder can match that total on the road in 2019/20.

Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m), both available again after injury and suspension, are also attracting a modicum of support in our captain poll.

No FPL asset has scored more away goals than Aubameyang this season and the Gunners are on the road this weekend, taking on Burnley at Turf Moor.

The Gabonese striker scored against the Clarets in the reverse fixture and bagged a 13-point haul in the corresponding match of Sunday’s game last season.

Arsenal have won their last 11 meetings with Burnley in all competitions.

Vardy has 12 attacking returns in as many appearances at the King Power Stadium, meanwhile, and Leicester are this weekend up against a Chelsea side that have kept just one clean sheet on the road in 2019/20.

    Maaannnn

    I forgot the game was tonight!

    Just looked at my phone and saw the Salah TC points! Tidy!

    Seems strange bringing in Auba and not captaining him but Salah seems the safety choice; you'd imagine quite a few Mane > Salah transfers this week too.

    1. Trophé Mourinho

        Auba is 100% best captain chocie this week. If you getting Auba please cap him

        Finally the the top 100k has arrived for the 1st time this season. Now at 75k hell yeah. TC Salah did it's job.

        There is always a but though. Sitting on -12 for GW25 🙁

        The signings I made are going to need to deliver!

        Firmino TCer here... 86 points minus 4 to have Haller’s 7 end up on the bench due to waiting until the last second to pull that particular trigger. Even though I’m up 150K points to a season-high 209K, still not too chuffed. Really hope I didn’t jump the gun going Vardy > Aguero after he played the full match today (also have KdB and Mahrez)...

          You're not happy with 82 points?
          There's no pleasing some people.

              pfft rookie numbers! Im not overly happy with my 87 😀

              No. Had I gone with the safe choice of Salah and not made that boneheaded move for Haller, I’d have been in triple digits.

                And if you'd made perfect choices all season you'd be number 1 in the world.
                There's so many options available you just need to be happy when you do well, it could have gone a whole lot worse.

          51 points from my triple Liverpool defence, shame about the rest of my team but it was just one of those weeks.

          For this week play one:
          A. Lunstram (cpl)
          B. Traore (mun)
          C. Ings (liv)

            Thanks, I'd be on Lundstram if he was nailed but I think I'm going for Traore instead now.

            Got 57 last year vs Hudds but given how many people went Mane (TC) I've no grounds for complaint.

            1. GARY AND JAMIE
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              Yep this is the key factor in terms of making ground

            • 1 Year

            ecstatic, its not the total thats significant but the difference between him and mane

            Don't think so no.

            Are you joking? The fact he got a goal and assist, and it was Origi and Ox that got the other points means it worked out perfectly.

        8. Dacra

          Seeing TAA with 36 points is a beautiful thang

          1. GARY AND JAMIE
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Did you see him hit his own post?

              • 11 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              Thinking outside the box so he didn't give away a corner, it was just as clever as his corner to Origi last season.

        10. FOO FIGHTER
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Team for GW25

            Henderson
            VVD TAA Dunk Lundstram
            Salah KDB Son Perez
            Auba Jimenez

            McCarthy Ayew Cantwell Stephens

            Bit worried that Lundstram may not start. I am shifting him GW25. Possibly taking a -8 for GW26 to get in the players I need. I am chasing now.

                  Already did. Got in Mane Mahrez etc for this GW but went tits up.

              WC team, any thoughts appreciated

              Dubravka (McCarthy)
              O'Connell,TAA,Robbo (Lascelles,Stephens)
              Salah,KDB,Grealish,Fleck (Traore)
              Auba(C),Ings,Jiminez

              Dubravka+McCarthy as they rotate perfectly.

              Cheers!

                              Get Lascelles or Fernandez, they are the popular picks and they got Norwich this week.
                              Fancy stat people say Fernandez, I like Lascelles personally

                                Either of them nailed?
                                Lascelles quite injury prone isn’t he?

                                1. Trophé Mourinho
                                    5 months, 16 days ago

                                    Both should be nailed as far as I know, Lascelles is captain also. KWP signing - people think Ritchie will be under threat, but not convinced of that. KWP isnt going to be on pens or FKs which Ritchie offers. Maybe Newcastle change formation to accomodate KWP?
                                    Not sure tbh, but for now Las or Fer both look good options.

                              really? Jose's gonna try to play the whole season with one fullback?

                        Very similar to mine, I’ve gone Bertrand and C.Taylor in defence 4/5 and Mooy over Fleck with 1.7m ITB, originally I had Doherty, May still go with him later on but not sure yet...

                        I spotted the perfect rotation yesterday and went straight for it, Dubravka has been impressive..

                        0% Barca just bid for Richalison so obviously desperate

                      Any changes you would make for hit- done Mané to Traoré so 6.9 m sitting in bank! Haller to Ings probably the move next week. Was going to WC but not sure now, and have caught ML leader

                        I think a hit to bring in VVD would likely pay off within a couple of weeks.

                        Haller to Firmy also very defensible imo.

                        Wonder when Bruno Fernandes will be loaded? Hoping he is around 7.5m. I am going to punt him pending price...

                          I reckon similar to Martial starting price?

                            I hope 7.0 imo a fair price.

                            He will be between 7.0-8.0

                          48 from a triple cap

                          I’ll call that a success

                            (A) Aurier > VVD

                              I’d say A would be ya this week and long term imo
