Fantasy Premier League GW13 – Captaincy Options

October 21, 2022

In the 13th round, the captain’s decision will primarily focus on a select few players from the top teams.  Manchester City and Liverpool have straightforward schedules, and Arsenal players are also good options.

After a round in which the options of the Citizens and the Gunners were not available, many FPL managers are looking forward to their return and the duels against Brighton and Southampton.

Apart from them, the Reds have won two games, and in the upcoming round, they are visiting last-placed Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. We should not forget the Spurs, who have a slightly more difficult task against Newcastle.

Erling Haaland (£12.1m) – 82.1% TSB

The Norwegian predator took a break in the previous round and thus gave some freedom to all FPL managers to choose another option as captain. Erling Haaland (£12.1m) is coming back, and his Manchester City will play against Brighton at their stadium.

The Seagulls are in a rut; they have lost their last four games, and they failed to score against Nottingham Forest in the previous round. So it’s not the best time for them to take this trip to the Etihad.

What more needs to be said about Haaland than has already been said? It was only his second Premier League game in which he failed to register a goal, and that was against Liverpool last weekend. As a result of his 15 goals in 10 games, he is still the primary captain’s choice.

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) – 33.2% TSB

Despite not scoring against West Ham on Wednesday, Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) is one of the best and most popular options for the captain’s armband ahead of GW13.

Liverpool will visit Nottingham Forest, a team that has conceded 23 goals in 11 matches. In addition, they allow an average of 16 shots on goal this season, and according to this statistical parameter, only Everton is worse than them.

Salah had six goal attempts against West Ham, four of which were from the penalty area. This is an indication that his form is improving from match to match. In addition, he recorded 15 shots in the last four rounds, which is the most among all midfielders in the entire league.

Is there a third party?

The upcoming round offers several more interesting options. Phil Foden (£8.4m) is also a legitimate candidate for those who like to take risks. He scored five goals in the last four games and recorded one assist. His teammate Kevin De Bruyne (£12.3m) also figures as a good decision, but many sold him to buy Salah.

After the one-round break, Arsenal will host Southampton, so it would be good to consider their players as well. Gabriel Martinelli (£6.7m) played only 15 minutes against PSV on Thursday, so he enters the duel against the Saints rested. Bukayo Saka (£7.9m) scored three goals in the Gunners’ last two games in the Premier League, he is a penalty taker, so he is a legitimate option.

Harry Kane (£11.5m) is also always a good option when it comes to choosing a captain. He did not register a goal or an assist against Manchester United on Wednesday, which was only his second blank this season.
