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.

      Let's keep it nice on here, no "nowhere to hide's" or "epic fails"

        That's mild banter which is surely ok. Celebrating injuries is different.

        No doubt, congrats to all Salah owners. I'm not one of them though but fully expect a Salah haul

      Have a feeling that Liverpool may have a big win tonight, against the odds.

    • Gudjohnsen

      Average score for my captain this season is 7,2
      Could be worse and could be better

        If I had captained my VC instead each week I’d be 103 points better off. Exactly the difference between me and top 100 OR (currently 16k ish)

    • Says

      Is it not really worrying that Jiminez has been out this long after a head impact injury?

      1. fusen
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        He'll be really lucky if he ever plays again tbh. Considering how much of his goal scoring would involve heading the ball, I don't see how it'll work. At least with Cech he didn't have to put his head in harms way much.

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Chivu as a centre half played with a scrum cap for years.

          I still reckon he'll play again before Grealish does.

          Agree with you.. even if FA grant permission for him
          to wear protective hardware, how will that work after a fractured skull..

      2. Bushwhacker

        3 months, 11 days ago

        He fractured his skull. That takes a while to fix itself . . if it does.

      I don’t get ppl buying dunk. Brighton have two good games left so surely veltman at £0.6m cheaper for 29 and 33 and then he stays on the bench?

      1. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I'm only buying dunk for the blank gw29 (with 2ft) then he changes to azpi/rudiger in gw30. He does carry a slightly higher goal threat.

      2. Patio Kev
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Bought him last week and played him this week for Lowton in prep for GW29.

        Many will do the same as WC GW31.

      3. TheBiffas
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Dunk will be a short term punt for me, WC out in 31, I'm sure many others are the same

          WC out in 31- only want for week 29 game

      4. KUNingas

        Would you take a hit for one more BGW player?

        A) Gross/Trossard (NEW)
        B) Auba (whu) + Dunk (NEW) (-4)

        Same team tonight that played against RB Leipzig last week.

        Same 2-0 result with the same scorers would be ideal for tonight too please.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1-0 wolves it is then

      7. Athletico Underachieving
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Only me and one other in my ML still have Salah. Unfortunately, the other person is top and has captained him. Not even sure what I want to happen!

        • Mr. O'Connell
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          As a Salah owner, but Bruno captainer, I don't think I'd swap my captain to Salah right now even if I could.

          Feel like he could bang a hattrick as my vice captain, but would be a guaranteed blank if he was my captain.

              I believe Wolves win 1-0 with:
              Willian Jose G
              Johnny A

                1-2 with Jota and Salah scoring . . Liverpool have a very good record against Wolves

                Mendy.

                But of those three I'd go Ederson if money no option.

                Annoying that even if I hate transfer Salah out, he will come back and I'll have to sell him again.

                I’ve currently got 6 BGW players including Son and Bamford with 2FTs. Therefore, if Bamford is ok I’m looking at potentially 7 players. Should I take hits or is it not worth it?

                  Probably is worth a hit or 2. Depends on your current team.

                  I took a -16 to get 10
                  Players but I’m trying to stay top of my mini league and have a 40 point lead. For overall rank it’s probably not a great idea

                  Depends on who, but doubt it. I wouldn't for anyone I didn't see as having potential beyond 29. Don't get tunnel vision
