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.

    If it stays like this I will make it into the top 10k for the first time ever. No players playing tonight. A Wolves goal would ensure that I think. Just please no Salah goal!

      Ok great

        It really is isn’t it!

        Cheer up old man. Not everyone's doing terrible this season!

      I'm in the same boat, first time in top 10k in twelve years of playing if results hold. Together, we can influence all of the pie charts next week by .02%

      The fact that you, of all people, are top 10k says a lot about this game and this season. Sad really

        Why would you say something like that unless you were a pitifully bitter child?

        1. AMBELLINA PRISE

          Erm.. because it's the truth 🙂

        Not a nice thing to say. Anyone in the top 10k deserves to be there.

        1. AMBELLINA PRISE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Sure..

      3. Doctor Evil

        Why’s that then? 140k last season and 40k the season before that. Not great but not awful.

    Is Salah playing?

        3 months, 11 days ago

        Sold him
        This week for Bale, and he gives me 3 points as A prating gift. Might get Jota after the blank though

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Why are you very, very happy about getting fewer points?

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Getting the 3 points now, sold him two days ago, Bale for bgw.

              And not regretting that I didn’t keep him this match. But know ut can bite me

            2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Ah, I see. I will probably do the same move.

    5. hullcityfan

      3 points is a haul by Salah 2021 standards

    6. TomSaints

      Salah is predictability rubbish

        Any other Pool players worth having at the moment?

          I should add I own Salah lol. I think they will come good again

        Fernandes was predictably rubbish as well

            3 months, 11 days ago

            Are players just knackered now?

            bruno at least shoots. she should have had 2 assists in the 1st half and a goal in the 2nd. salah hasn't even had a shot

      3. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        How has Coady looked?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I’m still confident Salah gets a goal.

        Always gets undeserved goals when I don’t own him. So why should it be different when I do?

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          This is the new level of crap Salah though

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Last 2 games I didn’t own him he got a poxy deflection from outside the box and a pen

      6. Please Answer Me

        Who will get more points the next few gameweeks Salah or Fred?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          fred

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

        Salah scoring 2 points more than Bale is a success currently.

        Such low standards for Salah...

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          3 is a haul this GW tbf.

      8. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Think Liverpool’s recent wins over Leipzig says more about the Bundesliga, minus Bayern, than anything else.

        Pure shite again here, Jota the only one worth even considering. Keep your armband away from them at all costs.

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

          Think it’s the fact they play better against attacking, expansive teams. In the league they struggle to break down defensive sides

          1. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Yep, Leipzig were so naive in both legs. Not the same in the Prem.

        Salahs recent form and recent stats regarding shots in the box, did cappers actually expect any returns? His form/stats all pointed in the wrong direction.

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Almost great timing

      10. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Salah a huge differential for me in my ML this week, of course he does nothing

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Same, seems every chance that looks nice to gain ground always flops. Anything from him today would have really helped me even tho I didn’t even cap him.

          Typical.

          1. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Story of my season, not one of my differentials have done anything unfortunately

            1. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Same, game has lost all integrity for me

        So who's everyone getting as auto-sub for Salah?

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

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Gundo

      12. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Salah nearly!

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          How many points for nearly?

          1. Ibralicious
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Well 3 more than Gundo already.

            1. Rainer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Gundo got many 6 Dallas points.

              1. Ibralicious
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                And even more 1 Bamford point

      13. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Jota rested, now concede a goal

      14. Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Salah is actually finished

        1. seanie3
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Think the whole team as we know it are finished

      15. Please Answer Me
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Fred or Salah

            Yeah, Salah must got from any team he’s still in.

            Jump on Jota down the line.

        2. tbos83

              3 months, 11 days ago

              In a GW30 WC?

              A) Salah + Jota
              B) KDB + Lingard

              ??

              1. dmcnam12

                  C) Salah + Lingard
                  D) KDB + Jota

                  Not a good time to ask that question if you want a rational and unemotional response

                  B obviously Salah is a 5.5m mid max

                At least he showed he can still finish.
