Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah cause captaincy decision headaches ahead of FPL Gameweek 17
It was amazing to see both Eden Hazard and Harry Kane joint-top of our Gameweek 16 Captaincy Poll with each receiving 35% of the vote.
Whilst the pair dominated the poll with 70% of all votes, half of those FPL bosses were left feeling deflated on Saturday afternoon, as Hazard returned only 4-points as captain.
Those who entrusted Harry Kane with the captains armband in Gameweek 16 reaped the rewards, as the Tottenham front-man delivered 2 goals, 2 bonus points and 24 points (as captain) overall.
Gameweek 17’s midweek fixture schedule throws up some tasty fantasy fixtures from an FPL perspective, resulting in 3 or 4 worthy, premium captaincy candidates for us to choose from.
Will it be Kane at home to Brighton? A team who have conceded 7 goals in their last 2 Premier League outings.
Will Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah take your armband this week against West Brom? Scoring 4 double-digit point hauls in his last 6 games, his form is proving hard to ignore.
Or will it be Sergio Aguero versus Swansea on Wednesday evening? The Swans are glued to 19th place in the Premier League table and with Aguero rested in Gameweek 16, things could get messy at the Liberty Stadium under the floodlights.
Please cast your captaincy pick to the poll below and don’t hesitate to reach out to me via twitter @FFPundits_Drew with any questions you might have ahead of Tuesday’s 6:45pm deadline.
