FPL Show: Can Salah reward the brave?

18 Sep 2020

Aubameyang is set to be Gameweek 2's No 1 armband choice but the experts say Liverpool star can punish the doubters at Chelsea

Selecting your captain is one of the toughest choices in Fantasy Premier League but it is a decision that can pay off handsomely for managers willing to take a risk. 

While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) looks set to be the most-popular captain pick for a second successive Gameweek, the Fantasy experts believe Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) can reward those willing to go against the grain. 

"Sometimes you have to look at ownership, and Aubameyang is going to be captained by everyone," David Munday says in the latest episode of the FPL Show.

"I'm probably going to go with Aubameyang and not be that brave, but Salah shoots on sight and of the last 13 shots on target that Kepa [Arrizabalaga] has faced, nine have gone in.

"Anyone that captains him is probably going to come away with a double-figure haul."

Gianni Buttice fears going against Aubameyang when Arsenal host West Ham United, but he too concedes that Liverpool's Salah could come back to bite him.

"If we look at form and fixture then everything points at Aubameyang," he says. "But knowing Chelsea have got a leaky defence you wouldn't put it past Salah to get a brace."

Don't forget the GW2 deadline is 11:00 BST on 19 September.
