DGW29 Captains: In-form Kane can rival Salah

The Scout 11 Mar 2022

Spurs and Liverpool stars set to contend for armband with both clubs playing twice

Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) and Harry Kane (£12.3m) have the form and fixtures to deliver huge armband hauls in Double Gameweek 29 of Fantasy Premier League.

Liverpool’s Salah travels to Brighton & Hove Albion and Arsenal on the back of 10 and 18-point returns in the last three Gameweeks.

The Egyptian’s record on the road certainly strengthens his appeal. Away from home, his 10 goals and 19 big chances are both league-leading totals.

Salah is the most-owned player in Fantasy, found in 62 per cent of squads compared with Kane’s 18 per cent.

The Tottenham Hotspur forward, meanwhile, visits Manchester United and Brighton in his most prolific form of the season.

Kane has claimed three double-figure hauls in his last four appearances. 

Furthermore, four of his five 10+ points returns this term have come in away matches. 

Liverpool and Spurs alternatives

Both Liverpool and Spurs offer strong alternatives for the armband.

Sadio Mane (£11.7m) is Liverpool’s top-scoring player in their last four matches, producing 37 points. Son Heung-min (£10.8m), meanwhile, has blanked in only two of his last 12 outings for Spurs.

More Double options

Bukayo Saka (£6.6m) is the most in-form player among the four other DGW29 sides.

The Arsenal winger has produced three of his four double-figure hauls this season in his last seven matches.

Saka boasts a major all-round threat ahead of visits from Leicester City and Liverpool.

His 38 shots and 31 key passes both place first for the Gunners at Emirates Stadium in 2021/22.

Consider single Gameweek stars?

Chelsea and Manchester City provide the best options for managers who are willing to look beyond the DGW29 sides.

Kai Havertz (£7.8m) welcomes Newcastle United on the back of 12 and 14-point hauls in Chelsea's DGW28.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) have stepped up their output ahead of Man City’s trip to Crystal Palace

De Bruyne has produced 10+ points in three of his last six matches, while Mahrez has recorded all five of his double-figure scores this season in his last seven starts.
