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.

    TC available, which GW to use and to which player? Suggestion please.

      Lets see, depends on fixtures. In 34/37 maybe. Salah vs WHM or BOU is also an option.

        liverpool will have dgw?

        1. Holmes

          If they qualify for next FA Cup rounds, yes they will have a double. Fixtures may not be great though...

    Already made my FT so will not take him out for a hit but is anyone else still going with Guaita?
    Fixtures look good but Palace can't keep a CS, not sure whether to remove for Hendo or Dubravka next week or just ride it out and hope they come good.

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hendo does not play 2 games in 7

      1. And we all have legs

        Ah yes, Man Utd loanee of course.
        Top man cheers. Not really feeling Newcastle either, gonna ride it out.

    Missus has Mane, Abraham, Richarlison and Cantwell doubtful. How many transfers does she need to make?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      2. Rocha back training. Cantwell bench

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Cantwell and Richarlison will probably be fit. Maybe Abraham as well. So 1-2 transfers should sort the team.

  5. FALSE PROFIT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    98 with 48 from pool. Who got the least points from pool? 11 games and 50% of points from one side. When are we going to realise captaincy and chips add to luck, good and bad. Get rid imo

    1. Holmes

      Whole game is luck! Have to follow the rules and be aware that all we can do is put efforts, outcome is random! 😮

          Surprised to see my gw rank jump around 100k with only Salah TC being shining light. Dint every TC Salah even those with Mane? I mean out of 6mn managers atleast 20% must be having TC Salah right as its most obvious.

          1. Holmes
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Only 60% EO for Salah if below 1m

          Who'll score more over next 3 gw's ??

              5 months, 16 days ago

              So if it's not q DGW for Arsenal, you won't recommend Auba ?

              That's what I was thinking as well. But own Haller also, hence the dilemma.

                expect brighton to keep it tight. westhamsfull xi played 2 cup matches before last gw. so fatigue could be an issue against brighton

                  Should I dump haller for a hit then? For kun/ auba/ firmino?

            Keep DCL for next 2. Then ship as fixtures turns

          On a -4 already.
          Would you sell Mane (Purchase Price-12.2m)?

          Hendo.
          TAA, Lundstram, Holgate.
          Grealish, KDB, Mane, Salah.

          Good morning DZ.

          If you had exact cash to do;

          DCL to Auba,
          Mane to Traore
          & Sidibe to Robertson (-8)

          Would you do it now or wait for Everton to play Watford and Palace?

          Alternative is just Mane to Grealish/Son/Martial for FREE.

          Cheers.

            I would do it now, but only the last 2 for -4. DCL to Auba can wait unless you plan to captain Auba.

            28 is definitely a blank but we don't know when that'll be arranged for, correct? Some on here saying to could be moved back to earlier 25/26 but in my experience it rarely happens like that...

          Hi all,

          Just realized Aguero played 90 mins last night.
          Chance of starting vs Spurs?

          1. Holmes
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Pretty good I guess since its a tough game, on paper atleast. Maybe gets substituted after 70mins or so.

            Jesus can be used vs WHM

            1. La Roja
              • 8 Years

            Feeling that Traore let's down over coming weeks.

            Prefer A or B?

            A. Auba + Traore
            B. Aguero + Armstrong

            Strong bench, so no need to play Traore/Armstrong every week....so most importantly Auba or Aguero?

            Haven't been keeping up with things and this probably might have been asked before..will we have any confirmed news on blanks and dgws in future before this gw deadline?

            What to do here?
            Im tempting to go Mane (11.9 sv) to Salah cause otherwise I will miss 2 good gw captains.
