Erling Haaland (£11.6m) and Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) will dominate the captaincy decision of millions of managers in Gameweek 2 of Fantasy Premier League.
Salah was the most-selected captain in Gameweek 1, backed by almost 3.3 million managers.
And he is very likely to retain top spot for the Reds’ clash with Crystal Palace.
The Egyptian has amassed 44 points in his last four home meetings with the Eagles.
However, Haaland poses a real threat to Salah’s armband popularity.
The Norwegian’s two goals and 13-point debut for Manchester City have made him the top target for Gameweek 2.
He has earned a massive 887,000 transfers in for his home encounter with AFC Bournemouth.
Haaland was supplied with four big chances in Gameweek 1, more than any other player. He is clearly thriving as the focal point of the champions’ attack and there would be no surprise if he outscores Salah.
Darwin Nunez (£9.0m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) offer strong alternatives to their in-form team-mates.
Nunez looks set to start against the Eagles after back-to-back goals as a substitute in Liverpool’s last two matches.
De Bruyne averaged 8.7 points per home start for Man City in the previous campaign.
Harry Kane’s (£11.4m) away output last term suggests he could punish the 690,000+ managers who have sold him for Tottenham Hotspur’s visit to Chelsea.
Kane was involved in 16 away goals in 2021/22, second only to the 18 of Salah.
West Ham United’s Jarrod Bowen (£8.5m) was also a huge success on his travels last season.
He produced 11 assists in away matches, at least four more than any other player in Fantasy.
Don't forget the Gameweek 2 deadline is 11:00 BST on Saturday 13 August.
