Salah the most powerful FPL asset inside top 10k for Gameweek 22

Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) has a firm grip on the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 22.

Ahead of a midweek meeting with Brighton, the Egyptian is, by far, the most heavily backed captain of the latest round.

As a result, his effective ownership inside the top 10k is sure to be ominous for anyone without Salah.

As you can see from the pie chart above, a whopping 80.8% of the top 10k handed Salah the captain’s armband for Gameweek 22.

That is a particularly staggering figure, especially in contrast to the latest Fantasy Football Scout captain poll, in which Salah won with just a 44.6% share.

The fact that previously popular premium assets such as Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m), Harry Kane (£11.1m), Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) and Sadio Mané (£11.9m) are all facing injury problems appears to be a factor here.

But it is certainly telling that the top 10k were more certain of a big haul for Salah than Fantasy Football Scout voters this week.

The Egyptian’s majority compared to the other popular captains is also massive.

Just 7.2% of the top 10k captained Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) for Gameweek 22, making for a gap of 73.7 percentage points.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m) was close behind the Manchester City man with the backing of 7.1%, despite earning roughly double that share in the latest Fantasy Football captain poll.

Such is the extensive support for Salah, the fourth and fifth-most captained options for Gameweek 22 were picked only by 1.2% and 0.9% of the top 10k respectively.

Ahead of a trip to Burnley, those assets are João Cancelo (£6.0m) and Ilkay Gündogan (£5.8m).

Salah’s overall power to do damage to non-owners in the top 10k is gargantuan for Gameweek 22.

Thanks to ever-increasing backing and the glut of captain armbands, his effective ownership at this level has come in at 173.0%.

Fernandes is the only other player with over 100% effective ownership among the top 10k midweek although he is still 69.4 percentage points behind Salah in this department.

And following his 15-point haul against Leicester, Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) ranks third on this metric but still trails Salah and Fernandes by a significant amount.

The impact of a long injury list and out-of-form premium assets is also highlighted in the overall template of players inside the top 10k after the Gameweek 22 deadline.

Between the two most recent rounds, Salah’s ownership in the upper echelons of FPL has risen by 20.7 percentage points, the biggest shift in the template this week.

That came in a Gameweek where he was transferred into 600,000+ new squads, the top 10k playing their part in that trend.

Son Heung-min (£9.7m) may have been one of the players discarded in favour of the Egyptian as his top 10k ownership dropped from 57.9% to 50.2% between Gameweeks 21 and 22.

Despite his first blank since Gameweek 18, Gündogan’s ownership in the top 10k remains relatively stable, dropping only by 1.2 percentage points after Tuesday’s deadline.

With Salah at the heart of so many transfers this week, the defensive and forward positions have not seen too many fluctuations between Gameweeks 21 and 22.

Bamford has increased his share of managers in the top 10k by just over 11 percentage points, although that number is sure to be influenced as much by those who used his points to get a green arrow as well as those who signed him.

Meanwhile, Michail Antonio (£6.6m) has earned an increase of 2.9 percentage points despite his blank against Liverpool but Dominic Calvert-Lewin‘s (£7.6m) stock is already travelling in the opposite direction.

51.5% of the top 10k owned the Everton man for Gameweek 21, just 45.8% of them still in possession of him after Tuesday’s deadline.

It was another slow week for the chips among the top 10k with the Wildcard used by just 0.4% of them for Gameweek 21.

Chip Use Overall

However, it is worth noting how many managers worldwide pulled the trigger on a new squad in midweek.

1.9% used the Wildcard overall for Gameweek 21, roughly 150,000+ in total, perhaps influenced by the recent slew of injuries to highly-owned players.

Either way, it is certainly quite interesting to see any chip used more extensively by the rest of the world than in the top 10k this far into a campaign.

Even though the Wildcard was not widely used in the top 10k this week, it is still worth considering any emerging trends from those that did.

The template here largely brings Wildcarders in line with the main top 10k template with a few exceptions.

John Stones (£5.2m) appears to have lost favour following his Gameweek 21 benching, Cancelo and Rúben Dias (£6.0m) the more trustworthy options from this point onwards as far as Wildcarders are concerned.

And Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) appears to be more the popular sub £5.0m option for those looking ahead, interesting considering the absence of Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) in this Wildcard template.

Meanwhile, the apparent lack of trust in Everton players is made clear by the fact that Callum Wilson (£6.7m) is the third-most popular forward – not Calvert-Lewin.

    Rashford left the pitch on 59:48. This resulted in him getting 9 points.

    If Rashford left the pitch 12 seconds later on 60:00 he would have got 11 points.

    If Rashford played 12 seconds more but also scored an own goal then he still would have got the same number of points.

    I.e. playing 12 more seconds (when they happen to be the 12 seconds from 59:48 to 60:00) is rewarded with as many points as are taken away when an own goal is scored.

    Does anyone think that this is totally unfair and the rules need looking at to avoid specific situations like this?

      Photoshop him with more points. Problem solved.

      Yawn. The line has to be drawn somewhere, you just fell on the wrong side of it this week. Be happy with your 9.

      If Rashford played 00:00 minutes he would have scored 0 points.

      Getting to 60 minutes isn't being rewarded for 12 seconds, it's being rewarded for 60 minutes...

        You’re doing ok this season I heard! Well done, looking like another big score this week

      I imagine Bednarek owners wouldn’t be complaining if he had left the pitch 11 seconds prior to 60 mins.

  2. JollyGoodYellows

    Likely good of Dias or Stones being benched? Got AWB as my first sub.

    1. dshv
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Why the hell you have a guy like that on the bench

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Played Dias, Stones and Digne. Let's be honest AWB hasn't been prolific this season and I expected United to concede

        1. ZAMUNDA
          • 4 Years

          You made a logic move, hope you get his points somehow

    2. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Chance of stones I reckon - may go Laporte and Dias for more physicality

      1. Adetro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        I don't think Pep will want to mess around with his central defensive pairing the match before the big one. I expect it will be Dias and Stones that start.

  3. Inazuma X1

    Gotta feel for Ralph.

    Extremely good manager.
    Not backed by the board.
    Injuries decimated the team.
    Terrible referring.

      He should've celebrated that Liverpool win Mourinho Nou Camp style, not that thing he did.

      I feel for Ralph....oh the VAR.... come on!!!

      Tonight 1 man down at 2 minutes and changes shaite. I mean surely at HT it must have crssed his mind that Leicester hammer.... call it a day, lower your block, take Ings out and put another defender/defensive mid. Not rocket science.

      What was terrible about the referring tonight that would have made a difference to the result ?

        Martial dive resulting in Bednarek red card and Fernandes going from 6 pts in the last 15 minutes to 17 pts. Bruno was not even in the top 10 players for bonus until that embarrassing refereeing decision. Could easily have been a yellow to Martial for the dive instead. Blowout anyway so only major result was a whole slew of FPL pts for ManU owners. Let's not even get into the microscopic VAR decision on the Adams goal. He did miss an open net later to make it even more painful.

    Ah well. Points are points from Bruno non-captain that will hopefully help at the end of the day, at least in ML if not in OR, even if it means a big red arrow at the moment...

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Salah could easily brace and out score it

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Nevermind just seen he still got 3 bonus, Salah hat trick then 🙂

    2. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Right!
      I feel like I should be happy, but that game hit me with a 20k red!

      Newcastle are just as bad as Soton, it’s exactly the sort of game Soton will bounce back in.

    What a start to the week. Huge red arrow but potential for a big green if Salah gets a hattrick.

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years

      Against a strong Brighton defence? No chance

        They were just up against a strong West Ham defense and score three.

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          West Ham play with a back four, so Salah gets easy space.

          Brighton play with a back 5, don't see much space for him

          1. Hazz

                    A transfer is not for 1 GW. Also, Spurs look quite toothless too. We look good.

                Even then Holding was a better option this GW if it wasn't for the red cards

                  • 4 Years

                  After Wolves: Villa, Leeds, City, Leicester.

                  Good thing those teams don't know how to score goals...

                  1. Inazuma X1
                    • 4 Years
                    7 months, 26 days ago

                    There is no guarantee Rudiger is nailed? And it's not like Arsenal don't defend well. Holding is clearly a better option if you just factor nailedness.

        2. Inazuma X1

      Let's go Fudgy my mate, Salah will run riot without Mane! He scores headers against Brighton when Mane's not around! Headers!

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        No mane equals monster haul, spot on.

      2. Robman
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Salah has scored 5 goals and 4 assists in the last seven games against Brighton. In those 7 games, Liverpool have won 6 and drawn 1.
        Tomorrow hopefully another couple of goals - remember he is now back in top form.

    Can’t believe it when Shaw came off on 46th min, was looking at min 15 points with his clean sheets and baps, imagine how many points he would have got if he’d had stayed on 🙁

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years

      Good, lets not be greedy xD

    2. gooberman

      I do feel for Shaw owners. Odd subbing off at half time. Should have been at least a 15 pointer but now only 7.

      1. Adetro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Odd to sub off two players at half time and using your final sub after 60 mins.

      2. Eastman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        I have him and feared he’d be taken off before 60 mins but not at half time due to one yellow from a ban and injury history

      3. PastaConcerto
        • 7 Years

        Bruno got all his points for max bonus.

    VAR is so bad. Just encourages players to go down on the slightest touch. Martial diving there when straight through 12 yards out

    1. wulfrunian
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Really bad decisions for one more time.

    2. Super Saints

      What do you expect from him? VAR is a disgrace too

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Just put the ball in the net? There’s an idea for a striker? I also just sad VAR is awful

    3. Adetro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Agree it was a dive. Left his leg dragging, the faintest of touches if a touch at all. Dean was shaking his head at the monitor, because he got one angle before the screen froze. It was the wrong decision. I'm in favour of VAR, but they need to iron out these pitchside monitor issues.

        How can you be in favour of VAR? They get just as much wrong as before and it's ruining the game

          I don't agree. I think they're getting more decisions correct. It's not going to get to 100%, but it still needs to be better than it is now.

        They are giving pens for slightest touch so just encourages diving (I’m old school and you can still dive even if theres a touch). Just hate everything about VAR, turning football into a non contact sport

      The millimetre line thing for offsides is a joke too. Especially when they are probably using a 30fps video in the first place so can't accurately play when the ball is played in the first place.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Don’t get me started on offsides!!

    5. PastaConcerto

      7 months, 26 days ago

      Awful decision by the referee and VAR....Martial did not even try to play the ball. Just dangled his leg and waited for contact. Embarrassing really.

      Unlucky that he got subbed early but at least he got 9pts from 59mins

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He didn't score an own goal. That's the clincher.

    Martial as of today won officialy a "disgraceful player of the year" award. Diving for penalty is never OK. But diving for penalty leading 6-0, playing with one man more, with the other team being already humiliated is a DISGRACE.

    1. Jellyfish

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      At least he said to Bednarek it wasn’t a foul. The right thing to do would be to say that to the red or tell Bruno to just pass it to the keeper.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Lol could you imagine that if Bruno deliberately missed the pen

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          I mean I’d hate it as I own him but there is a precedent. Do Canio for example.

    4. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Agree. But the ref has to take some blame. It was obvious to me anyway that bednarek tried to pull out of the tackle. Couldn't believe it when he sent him off.

    5. PastaConcerto
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Agreed. No idea how he escaped getting a yellow card. And the red...unbelievable.

  21. JT11fc

    My mist deadline and brother played Bednarek......

        Just so you know the word is missed. Mist is similar to fog.

          I give up haha

      Anyone have a link to the TC account?

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      One manager triple captained Bednarek too apparently. Shows the permutations of outcomes when you have 8 million playing this game!

      1. Adetro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        There are a few thousand teams who change their complete squad each week to have 11 players playing the first round of matches to try and be ranked first for the GW at the end of the first day. To TC Bednarek away to ManU, I suspect it'll be one of those accounts.

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Yep, probably! There were over 20,000 new accounts signed up last GW for example.

      2. PastaConcerto

    1. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It will be utmost important whether they end up second or third.

      To be honest, the main motivation was to give some flavor to the fact that we can't celebrate Bruno's points and similar situations 😀

          Just Salah(C) vs opponent's Sterling(C), and that is already tight.

      Last time they lost 9-0 they then went away to city and only lost 2-1 the next league game.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        I remember there being a crazy bandwagon for Man City assets and both KDB and Sterling blanked (with Kyle Walker getting 1G, 1A)!
