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.

    The game should just end with Salah blank

    Red of 8 places. Annoying

    Goal went in on 87 so should be another 13mins but probably won’t be as much as that

        officials don't want to watch salah blank any longer than they have to

    Would there be any obvious down side to all players wearing soft helmet type things? Provided they could still head the ball it shouldn't be a problem should it?

      Hair vanity

      Soft helmets only provide protection from cuts, don't offer much protection from impact injury.
      They also can lead to a perceived level of protection that isn't there e.g. I can take this hit to the head as I have a helmet on - it's one of the reasons amateur boxers no longer wear them

        Good answer.

    Ruddy is awful. Could be points available in targeting Wolves now

    1. Sun Jihai

      Might swing me on doing DCL to Antonio

        Exact same thought

    2. Revival

      Yep bring in Sheffield Utd, Burnley and WBA attackers

    3. Fred54
      • 6 Years

      I was looking at Lingard anyway, this sweetens the deal.

  7. Wild Rover

    Come on Wolves

    If 120 gets played will Salah get a point for completing another 60 minutes?

      Nope just for regular minutes

      They're playing until Salah scores

  14. Duke Silver ☑

    Haven't got Neto into the game nearly enough.

    Fabio Silvais a save point dream

    Hasta La Vista to Sterling from my team

  19. KAPTAIN KANE

    Trent been great I must say

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Agree, TAA Jota for LIV good fixtures?

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

        Tempting

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

    I'd be lying if I didn't expect at least one goal from Salah tonight.

  21. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Blow the whistle when Salah scores

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

      Can’t play for a week.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        You mean 3 weeks

  22. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    The only reason Salah is still on my team is because I'm a member of this site where he is some sort of a demigod. Off my team he goes.

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

      So much fear factoring with Salah.
      Too much nostalgia

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

      Replaced by whom?

      1. Sir Alex Telles.
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I'll go heavy up top and accomodate Vardy, Kane and Bamford.

      2. mrodgers91
        • 3 Years

        KDB, bale and upgrade elsewhere?

    3. Pat Bonner

      Why not make your own decisions? Or just post your username and password and someone can just do transfers for you each week

      1. Sir Alex Telles.
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        You must be a Salah capper.

          Outscore Kane I see! Good luck getting a decent rank this season. Nice to see someone who’s never had a decent season doing well

    Come on Neto! Grab a late equalizer.

    Traore has been so good in progressing the ball. Just missing Jimenez.

    Another Salah blank. Lovely.

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

    Trying to be different with Salah (C) was a major fail.

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

      All the popular captain options failed. If anything, Salah was one of the better performers.

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

      Kane less points

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Was it actually?

  30. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Salah useless

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

      One assist came a little too late. Others weren't any better. At least he got cs pt unlike Kane.
