Fantasy Premier League GW14 – Captaincy Options

October 27, 2022
GW14 Captaincy

A very exciting Premier League weekend is ahead of us. This round brings us a handful of interesting clashes, the potential for Fantasy Premier League points is huge, so the expectations for GW14 are really huge.

A large number of favorites have a good schedule in this round. Manchester City will visit Leicester in the opening game, and Liverpool will welcome Leeds on Saturday evening. A day later, Arsenal will host Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United will cross spears with West Ham.

Kane, Son, and teammates from north London visit Bournemouth, Graham Potter returns to the place of success and Chelsea will play against his former team, Brighton.

All in all, there are many captain options. It is necessary to process all the information, follow the information from all the press conferences and make a wise decision. We have selected the duo that, in our opinion, has the greatest potential for FPL points.

Erling Haaland (£12.2m) – 83.8% TSB

Erling Haaland (Manchester City)

The Norwegian striker continued to sow fear during the previous weekend. He scored twice against Brighton, his 16th and 17th Premier League goals of the season. But Pep Guardiola substituted Erling Haaland (£12.2m) at halftime of the Champions League match against Dortmund, which worried many FPL managers.

“There are three reasons why I replaced him. The first was because I noticed that he was tired. The second is because he felt the flu these days. And the third, he was hit in the foot. That’s why he didn’t play in the second half,” Guardiola said after Wednesday’s match. Therefore, his conference will be the most anticipated event on Friday.

However, there are high chances that Pep will not say with 100% certainty whether Haaland will play on Saturday or not. We believe that the Norwegian will play on Saturday and that the extent of the injury is not serious.

Even if he doesn’t play against Leicester on Saturday, Manchester City will play at home against Fulham and Brentford in the next two rounds, so the Norwegian can easily make up for what he missed.

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) – 31.8% TSB

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

The 0-1 defeat by Nottingham Forest disappointed many Liverpool fans and FPL managers who believed in Mohamed Salah (£12.8m). After important victories over Manchester City and West Ham, many expected another easy victory for the Reds, but Klopp’s men failed miserably.

But Wednesday’s Champions League game and a 3-0 win over Ajax in Amsterdam signaled that Liverpool was quick to forget Saturday’s defeat. It was Salah who scored the first goal, and he also assisted on the third, so there is an indication that he should still be trusted.

The Reds welcome Leeds on Saturday evening, and the Egyptian has scored five goals against this rival in the last four games. Last season they outclassed the Peacocks at Anfield 6-0.

Is there a third party?

There are still a few legitimate options in this round. Kevin De Bruyne (12.3m) did not play the Champions League match against Dortmund, so he is fresh for the duel against Leicester. On the other hand, Salah’s teammate Darwin Nunez (8.8m) missed the match with Nottingham, but was the starter against Ajax and scored one goal. He missed a few more great opportunities and was replaced in the 63rd minute, so he kept some freshness.

Harry Kane (11.5m) should also be taken into consideration because Bournemouth’s defense is not too good. But the drop in form of Tottenham, which has not won in the last three games, is worrying. Kane, however, scored the only goal in the 1-2 defeat by Newcastle in the last round but played 90 minutes against Sporting in the Champions League.

Someone from Arsenal’s trio of Jesus – Saka – Martinelli is a good captain option for those who like to take risks, as they welcome Nottingham. Many expect the Gunners to demolish one of the weakest defenses in the league.

All in all, this round can be very efficient and interesting, because a large number of premium and essential players can bring a large number of FPL points.
