That is because the mid-season player break means Liverpool do not play until 15 February, way after Saturday's 11:30 deadline by which point team news will not be known.
That won't be enough to put many off captaining Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) at Norwich City. But David Munday says that because Man City host West Ham United this weekend, Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) could be a safer pick.
"You want to cover yourself," Munday explains in the latest FPL Show. "If you're captaining a Liverpool player I think you have to have your vice-captain on a Man City one, so that if there is something that puts your Liverpool player out of action you have at least covered yourself.
"I'm confident [Aguero's] going to play. He's top of league for shots in the box, big chances and shots on target in the last four and West Ham's defence is really, really poor – arguably worse than Norwich's right now.
"Even if they were playing on the same weekend [as Liverpool] Aguero's got a great case. However, when you consider you're going to get that press conference for him and not for Liverpool it becomes even stronger."
