GW12 FPL stats: Salah fails to deliver

19 Oct 2022
Premier League - Liverpool v West Ham United

Liverpool star blanked in 1-0 win over West Ham to frustrate his 2.3m captain backers

Managers in Fantasy Premier League were left frustrated in Gameweek 12 as the leading captain picks failed to deliver in the absence of Erling Haaland (£12.1m).

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) was handed the armband by over 2.3million managers in a Gameweek when the Manchester City forward was without a fixture due to the postponement of City's match at Arsenal

But the Egyptian blanked for the fifth time this season in Liverpool's 1-0 win over West Ham United.

In-form Harry Kane (£11.5m) took second spot, but the Tottenham Hotspur forward failed to register a goal or an assist for the first time since Gameweek 1 in the 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.

GW12 most-captained active players
Player Captained by (000's) Pts
Salah 2,309 3
Kane 829 2
Trossard 329 3

Leandro Trossard (£6.9m) completed the top three captains ahead of Brighton & Hove Albion's enticing home encounter with Nottingham Forest.

But, despite taking four shots and hitting the woodwork, he was unable to break the deadlock as the match finished 0-0, recording a third successive blank.
