Fantasy Premier League: Who should you captain for GW2?
Fantasy Premier League enters Gameweek 2 with the players most owned in the game delivering in the opening round.
The Norwegian is owned by 53.8 percent of players, justifying his 11.5 price tag, which has already seen him increase to 11.6.
While Mohamed Salah, 62.5 percent owned, thrived despite Liverpool’s draw with Fulham, producing 12 points for his owners.
There were disappointments too, namely Trent Alexander-Arnold, the most expensive player in the game at 7.5, and 56.9 percent owned, producing just one point, while Harry Kane could only deliver two points, despite Tottenham hitting four in the 4-1 win over Southampton. Here are a few options to select as captain for GW2:
- Aston Villa vs Everton
- Arsenal vs Leicester
- Brighton vs Newcastle
- Manchester City vs Bournemouth
- Southampton vs Leeds
- Wolves vs Fulham
- Brentford vs Manchester United
- Nottingham Forest vs West Ham
- Chelsea vs Tottenham
- Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
Erling Haaland vs Bournemouth
The obvious choice after 13 points at West Ham last weekend following a debut brace and three bonus points. The Cherries impressed at home to Aston Villa, but Haaland is surely a safe bet to get a goal and take you to 12 points at least.
Mohamed Salah vs Crystal Palace
Perhaps psychologically a harder pick with the wait until Monday night, but a home game for the Reds to bounce back after opening up Saturday’s action with a 2-2 draw against Fulham. Salah looks to have already found an understanding with Darwin Nunez too, making this an attractive play until the Egyptian provides us with a reason not to captain him.
Gabriel Jesus vs Leicester
Just the two points for the Brazilian against Crystal Palace in the opener, but Mikel Arteta will be patient and this provides an attractive alternative to Haaland and Salah, particularly if there is some development in negotiations between Chelsea and Leicester to cast doubt on Wesley Fofana’s involvement here.
A risky play away from home for the Whites, but Mitrovic delivered 13 points last weekend and was a nuisance against Liverpool. If he can cause Virgil van Dijk problems, he can be effective against any team in the league.
A first home match on their return to the Premier League for Forest, and what an opportunity for Lingard, too, against the team he turned down in favour of the Tricky Trees. If you are brave enough, this could be the type of alternative captaincy play to gain ground on your rivals.
