FPL Show: Vardy fresh to lead captaincy options

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) racked up 24 Fantasy Premier League points on Boxing Day, the biggest Gameweek total this season, but it could have been even sweeter for his own FPL team.

The Liverpool right-back made himself vice-captain for his Gameweek 19 haul at Leicester City, instead giving the armband to Sadio Mane (£12.3m), who set him up for his goal in the 4-0 victory.

"I don't really captain myself too often, because it's unrealistic to get 24 points week in, week out," Alexander-Arnold on the latest FPL Show.

"Sadio was captain, he got the assist for my goal, which is always nice.

"Jamie Vardy was my captain. So, obviously, before the deadline I thought, I'm going to have to change that.

"So I just changed it to Sadio, put him captain and was hoping he'd score a few goals for me.

"It's amazing to have players like that in the team that will get us a lot of points and it's an exciting time to be a Liverpool player."
