Salah most-sold and third-most captained FPL asset for Gameweek 28

All Fantasy Premier League eyes are on Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) at Wolves tonight.

The Liverpool midfielder has been a divisive figure in the community this week after blanking in each of his last four matches.

As a result, Salah was the most-sold Fantasy asset ahead of Gameweek 28, losing more than 500,000 owners before Friday evening’s deadline.

However, following a decent Champions League display last week, Salah is also the third-most captained player for Gameweek 28, backed by over 800,000 armbands.

The Egyptian’s away form could be a factor in that decision too. No FPL midfielder has found the net more often on the road this season than Salah (10), his last three away matches producing three goals and 25 points (8.3 points per game.

Salah will be helped in attack by another start at centre-forward for Diogo Jota (£6.6m), who returns to his former club tonight.

Sadio Mané (£11.8m) joins the pair in Liverpool’s front-three but is still owned by just 4.9% of Fantasy managers, Gameweek 20 the last time he produced a goal or assist in the Premier League.

Andrew Robertson (£7.2m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) start at left and right-back respectively, either side of Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) and Nathaniel Phillips (£4.0m).

That centre-back pairing allows Fabinho (£5.4m) to return to central midfield, a tactical tweak that could bring out the best of Liverpool’s forward line.

Meanwhile, Wolves line-up in 3-4-3 formation with Pedro Neto (£5.7m), Willian José (£6.9m) and Adama Traoré (£6.0m) in attack.

Gameweek 28 Line-ups

Wolves XI: Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Boly; Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Semedo; Neto, Willian J, A Traoré.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, Kabak, N Phillips, Alexander-Arnold; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Mané, Jota, Salah.

      Well at least it made me feel better about capping Bruno

      Brutal punishment from Salah and doubly brutal from the Salah cappers.

        Got rid of him for Bale last week.....hauled off before 60 mins against the gunners so actually was 2pts worse off than Salah but still happy he has gone and surely Bale plays this week with Son out and Lamela banned

      Mane is a joker. His blatant no passing to Salah policy is absurd

        Would you pass to Salah if you played with him?

        I remember being part of this conversation when it took place in preseason. Doesn't feel like that long ago. Went without him for most of his hauls in the early part of the season. The 7-0 convinced me to bring him in, and he's been crap ever since

          He’s scored 56 points in 15 games since that day - even then Palace gifted him his points with ridiculous, abysmal defending

          Needs to get his act together or even last season’s 230 will start disappearing from sight

      Tell me, is it over the top to declare that "Salah can now go away from my team and don't come back for the rest of the season"?

        Who’s the best Brighton player to get this gameweek?

        A) Dunk
        B) Trossard
        C) Muapay

        1. BeaversWithAttitude
          • 2 Years

          Trossard, maybe? Brighton and Newcastle just above the dropzone. Should put in an effort, and shares direct free kicks and corners with Groß.
