Gameweek 17 Captaincy:
Β 
Β 
It’s back! πŸ₯³ After a break for a totally uneventful World 🌎 Cup πŸ† (with a well-functioning fantasy football game… 🀣) we’re back to FPL. Players who you may have forgotten even existed πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« should now be back on your radar. This week, we present 🎁 to you: Haaland, Salah, and our differential pick, Bruno Fernandes.Β 
Β 
Β 
E Haaland πŸ‘‘ (Leeds (A) (84% ownership) – while some players were at the World 🌎 Cup πŸ†, others were in the U.K. firing shot after shot past Scott Carson πŸ₯…. Yes, everyone’s favourite Norwegian πŸ‡³πŸ‡΄is back. In case you’ve forgotten, Haaland is on 18 goals and 3 assists in 13 PL appearances 🀯. That means he’s theoretically on track for 50+ goals this season 😱. Up against one of the worst defences in the league at Leeds. Didn’t play at the WC, so should be fit 🩻, although a word of warning that weirdly, Pep has hinted at a lack of match fitness for those who didn’t go πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ. Would still personally expect him to start – KDB a credible alternative.Β 
Β 
Β 
M Salah πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡¬ (Aston Villa (A) (33% ownership) – another player who didn’t feature in the World 🌎 Cup πŸ† so should be raring to go. Somewhat maligned this season, but at 0.58 xG/90 and 0.20 xA/90 he still has one of the best sets of underlying stats in the league βœ…βœ…βœ…. Injuries πŸ€• to other Liverpool attackers also potentially help him out too. Comes up against a Villa side who have conceded 6 goals ⚽️ in their previous 3 PL games. Still a good shout (with Darwin a credible alternative).Β 
Β 
Β 
B Fernandes (Nottingham Forest (H) (3% ownership) – Man Utd already looked to have turned a corner in terms of form pre World 🌍 Cup πŸ† and with the pervasive influence of Ronaldo gone πŸ‘‹, should be well placed. This should also mean Bruno Fernandes gets back his penalty πŸ₯… duties – while I wouldn’t be totally convinced he goes back to being the same FPL asset he was in 2020 ⭐️, he’s still a very good option. Comes up against the third worst defence in the league with Nottingham Forest 🌳 in a plum home fixture. Nice differential πŸ‘ in terms of ownership too.

Our top πŸ”pick for this week is Haaland! Who will your #GW17 captain be? Good luck everyone!Β
