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.

      Current team:

      McCarthy
      Lund / TAA / Robbo
      Fleck / KDB / Doucore / Grealish
      Aguero (c) / Vardy / Haller
      BENCH:
      3.9 / Mane* / Williams / Tanganga

      Would you bring Salah in for a -4 and play him over Haller? Or leave as it is?
      If I bring Salah in it will likely mean that Aguero loses the armband

      Bottoms up

      I was planning on fh in 31 but find myself with 3 wolves and 3 pool players from gw27.

        it's part and parcel of owning a city player. you buy knowing that your player is a rotation risk.

      Dropped from 55k to 172k in 3 GW. Lost 43 points over this period which includes TC Mane.

          • 6 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          WC would be a knee jerk. TC Salah and it's a completely different story with 79 points.

    10. OneMan
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Is this a good week to play the WC chip ? I would like to bring in Kun at some stage.

    11. ALI_G
      • 2 Years

      crazy points and rank swings this week

      TC Mane + Salah = 19
      Mane + TC Salah = 49

      30 points on what was the toss of a coin, lucky I came out the right side of it

      1. Cruyff's Eleven

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Should have been more too. Salah should have had 2 or more goals.

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          He can’t take all his chances... I think it was a positive return for a TC, almost 50 so should be pleased

    12. Pep Roulette

      What to do?

        Not selling Mane?

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Thinking Mane & Kelly to Robbo & Traore! Then upgrade DCL & Deeney to Jimenez & Ings in the coming weeks!

          1. Neo-Viper
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            I like it already

          2. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Do you prefer Robbo over VVD?

            1. Neo-Viper
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              yes. Robbo is exciting to own if you cash.

              1. fcsaltyballs
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 16 days ago

                VVD more assured of starts though especially with CL upcoming

      2. wulfranian
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        I would sell Mane.Son/Traore.

      3. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Do you prefer Robbo over VVD??

    13. tc93
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Priority transfer this GW? 6.3 ITB.

      1. Soy --> VVD
      2. Maddison --> Grealish

      Rest of team:
      Foster (Button)
      Soy / TAA / Lund (Hanley, Reid)
      Maddison / KDB / Salah / Traore (Cantwell)
      DCL / Vardy / Ings

      Cheers!

      1. Neo-Viper

        Soy. Definitely

      2. A Fat Spanish Waiter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        I’d say A, but what are you planning to do with all that cash? I’d have to check, but I think you have enough to do DCL to Kun or Auba.

      1. PlumaPiedra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Fleck.

      2. Istanbul 05

        Lascelles

        1. Danno - Emre Canada
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Need a decider.....

          1. A Fat Spanish Waiter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Fleck 🙂

            1. Danno - Emre Canada
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              Ta so here’s another question would you play Fleck ahead of the Lundstram?

    17. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Do I swap Jesus back to Aguero this GW or keep? Put Jesus in for him this week when I saw he was benched. That backfired. Should I get Kun straight back? Does Kun start at the weekend?

      No idea what to do.

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Ouch. Would Aubameyang

    18. smix
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Play Lundstram or Cantwell ?

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Cantwell

      2. tucaoneo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 16 days ago

        If Cantwell's flag is cancelled I may play him.

    19. Neo-Viper
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Out : Mane and Soy
      In : Traore and Robbo
      for a hit

      McCarthy Button
      Taa Robbo* Lundstram Rico Williams
      KDB Salah Traore* Grealish Dendo
      Vardy Jimmy Ings

        I’m considering the exact same thing.

        1. Neo-Viper
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          seems only fair to me.

      So for Tripple Pool and Wolves owners
      it might be good not to FH in 31 but target
      Everton Norwich and Burnley players.
      Its too soon but i have Taalor and Cantwell plus 6pool/wolves. Can just use transfers for Richarlison DCL and a GK and i'll be fine. Whoplops

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        the thing is who really wants Everton/Norwich/Burnley players

        1. wulfranian
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          I think Wood is a very good pick.

    21. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Ranked to 11k nice

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Updated yet tho?

    22. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Do Wolves still rotate penalties? Or does Jiminez take all of them now?

    23. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Should I wild card this?

      Already on a -4 because I had just enough to get Aguero after Vardy was injured, and now he's back.

      Button - Ryan
      TAA - Evans - Stephens - Lundstram - Kelly
      Salah - Mane - KDB - Grealish - Cantwell
      Aguero - Ings - Maupay

      1. A Fat Spanish Waiter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        I wouldn’t just yet. You might regret not having it once all the BGW and DGW stuff falls into place.

    24. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Let's hope Lundstram keeps his place in the 11!

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        should I bench Rico for him?

      2. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 16 days ago

        He'll play this weekend. Wouldn't bet on it long term though

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years

          Thanks mate! Really trust you when it comes to the Blades!

        2. Dr. Agabuse

            • 1 Year
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Didn't start last and was rested in the cup. Besic played the full 90

          cheers

    26. Neo-Viper
      • 5 Years

      Play Lundstram (Palace Away)
      or
      Rico (Villa Home)

        1. Neo-Viper
          • 5 Years

    27. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Very excited for tomorrow. Potential of a triple signing on the cards... Will be very happy with Zivkovic and Berge. Fingers crossed :p

      1. tucaoneo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Who if any will they replace?

      2. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Where do they play?

      3. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Zivkovic a young striker. Pressure on mousset, mcgoldrick and mcburnie. Burge is a cdm and would expect him to play over Lund or maybe start instead of Norwood. But looks like he may be loaned back to genk for rest of season

    28. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Interesting how Traoré is becoming default choice

      Look at the stats over the last 6 and really there isn’t that compelling a case for him over Redmond. Add in Europa and Southampton fixture run after this week and perhaps the balance tilts the other way

    29. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      auba over Aguero? Southampton double up punt?

      Mane/greenwood to
      A) jwp/aguero
      B) fleck/aguero
