FPL Show: Firmino can deliver as differential captain

21 Feb 2020

Sam and Lee Bonfield say Liverpool forward is due goals at Anfield and can reward managers who back him against West Ham

Roberto Firmino (£9.7m) has scored all his goals this season away from Anfield, but the Liverpool forward could be an effective differential captain at home to West Ham United in Fantasy Premier League.

So say FPL experts Sam and Lee Bonfield as they assess Firmino's points potential in Gameweek 27 against that of team-mates Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) and Sadio Mane (£12.2m).

"He has got seven of his eight assists this season at home, so it’s not like when he’s at home he does nothing," says Sam in the latest FPL Show.

"There is still definitely attacking threat there and there have been a couple of games recently at Anfield where he has been unlucky that he’s not scored.

Lee adds of Firmino: "He's had six big chances in the last four Gameweeks, so he’s due [a home goal]."

But Sam has a word of caution.

"Not captaining Salah this week is a risk, because he’s so highly owned that if he bangs, you're in trouble," she says.
