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.

    Concussion sub incoming

    How's this looking for GW29?

    Salah + DCL + Cancelo > Bale + Antonio + Dunk (-4)

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Decent. Not totally sold on bale and would wait until last minute as lots of games to play.

    2. Whatever100
      • 4 Years

      Actually prefer Lucas Moura to Bale and that’s saying something.

    3. FPL DONKEY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You're basically getting a defender with bad fixtures after the blank for a -4. Not convinced it'll be worth it

    4. mrodgers91
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Thinking of a similar thing, do you still have WC if you dont want to keep them all?

  3. Pat Bonner

    Ox delayed the pass perfectly there until salah was offside

    1. Ejaaz11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      he had so much time to play the pass early

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Annoyingly so 🙁

  4. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years

    When it's not happening it's not going your way.

    Pat down

  6. Rainer

    Adama in nets?

    1. Here's Tom with the We…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Sure, Very good at keeping the ball out the net

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

    If I didn’t have Salah that’s a goal

  8. nerd_is_the_werd
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 11 days ago

    That's quite shocking all things considered.
    Had all the time in the world to stay onside.
    May as well blame the pass, should've come sooner!

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Get well soon Patricio!

  10. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Salah done?

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

      Very

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

      Finally out for me this week

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

    Shows how utterly rubbish the premier League is that Salah is top scorer this season

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

      It just shows how short people's memorys are, and how much of Liverpool's bad form is being lumped on Salah.

      Salah isn't that different, it's the team in general.

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      will be Kane by Gameweek 30

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

        Not a chance while I own and captain him as shown by this GW

  12. Rains of Castamere
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Trent / Kabak 3 bonus
    Alisson close behind

    Then big gap to Robbo

  13. mrodgers91
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Robbo salah DCL to dunk bale kane for a -4?
    Gives me 9 for next week, probably WC in 30 or 31

    1. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      If WC on 30, what would be a massive change between 29 and 30?
      If u tell me u WC31 i get it (can't trust those teams that have the fixture change in their favor)

      1. mrodgers91
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Good point, the team that would give me is fine for 30 have the usual leeds, 3 city and bruno. Then 31 is just all red

  14. Jimmers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    If offside flag had gone up the clash would not have happened - these delayed flags are pointless and dangerous

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

      To be fair there are was barely any time between the pass and the finish so in this case that stupid rule can't be blamed.

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

        Don't agree - flag goes up ref will blow whistle and players stop. There was eventually going to be an incident like this

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

          Well you should agree because you're talking nonsense.

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

            It the flag goes up or whistle blows, the keeper doesn't need to rush out

        2. Honourvolley
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          You’re right in general, although this one was very soon after the “offside” so it may have happened anyway, hard to tell.

          Shouldn’t distract from the point though

    2. Werkself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I didn't see it I've been saying since day 1 that a player would be seriously injured at some point as a result of the policy to delay raising the flag. It's infuriating and particularly pointless in the clearly obvious offside calls.

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

    Absolutely everywhere to hide for Mo Salah apparently, hasn't been seen

  16. The Mandalorian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Can we have a concussion sub for Salah

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

      Not funny

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Silly comment to make

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

        Yep, probably one of the dumbest comments for a longtime

  17. tbos83
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Get well soon Patricio- this looks serious

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

        Why actually happened? He was my target to bring in for wc31

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Collision with Coady

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Unfortunately doesn’t look good, he wasn’t moving 🙁

      3. JammySprat
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        It didn't show it on sky and I didn't catch the contact first time round

        1. tbos83
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Saw a clip on twitter - looks like he got caught by Coady's knee.

      4. Sack The Glazers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        is this the 1st major issue of the stupid offside rule?

        1. tbos83
            3 months, 11 days ago

            It is certainly controversial

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

            It's not because it was a matter of less than a second between Salah being offside and finishing it. The rule is stupid but it made no difference in this incident.

        2. jimmy.floyd
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Any news about Villa-Everton game?

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

            Definitely not happening in GW30
            Probably GW35 or GW37 now

            very unlikely to happen in gw 30

            • 9 Years

            Probably GW 35 as per the Twitter genius

            • 8 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            From Ben Crellin:
            Everton - Villa now unlikely to move to GW30 or GW31 due to latest fixture amendments.

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

              Everton now play on Monday night in both these gameweeks (30/31) so no chance of midweek game being added

          Just want the game to end with Salah blank so that i can go to bed

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

            Go to bed mate, I own Salah, rival doesn't, end of story

        4. Gudjohnsen

          FT?

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Nope if they do play on will be another 6 mins or so

        5. AzzaroMax99
          • 4 Years

          Why's the game interrupted?

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

            Rui Patricio head injury. Doesn't look good.

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

          2 point gain for Salah + Bruno cappers vs. Kane I guess :s
          What a week!

        7. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          So is the lesson here that those who somehow held onto both Salah and Robbo/ Trent are the real winners?

          1. Duke Silver ☑
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

                Play is stopped while Patricio gets treatment. Will be a good 7 minutes more to play.

                  Was wondering for the whole match in general.

                Looked a bit better compared to previous league games but by no means impressive.
