GW30 Top Three Captaincy Picks

By Fantasy Football Fix ()

Caveat : The Captaincy picks are in the below format -

  • Number one pick predicted as per the Fix Algorithm
  • Differential pick (Under 25% ownership)
  • 'Out there' pick (Under 15% ownership)

Mohamed Salah (BUR)

After dropping points in the Merseyside derby, Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways as they host Burnley at Anfield. Although their Egyptian talisman has scored only one goal in the last six gameweeks, it has not been for want of trying. Salah has taken 20 shots in that period , with only H. Barnes (21) taking more amongst midfielders. He leads the way for shots on target (SoT) with nine and only Mané (12) and H. Barnes (15) have taken more shots in the box (SiB) than his 11. Liverpool have scored 10 goals in the same time frame, with only Man. United (12), Palace (12), Arsenal (13) and Man. City (14) scoring more. They landed 32 SoT which could only be beatern by United (35) and Man. City (41). Burnley have conceded 10 goals in their last six matches, keeping no clean sheets. They have allowed opponents 94 shots and only Watford (95), West Ham (101) and Fulham (102) have been more obliging. Burnley have also conceded 31 SoT, the fifth-worst over that period. Our Fix Algorithm backs Salah to get back on the scoresheet with a point score of 7.3

Harry Kane (sou)

Kane has been in sparkling form since he returned from injury in gameweek 27, scoring two goals in his last three league games and also scoring in the Champions League midweek. As the Custom Stats table shows, only Lacazette (five), Rondón (five) and Lukaku (seven) landed more SoT in the last three gameweeks than Kane’s four. He also registered three ‘big chances’ with only Lacazette and Lukaku (both four) faring better. Spurs have scored eight goals in the last six gameweeks, taking 87 shots, with only Man. United (88), Palace (91), Leicester (102) and Man. City (104) attempting more. They are also fifth-highest for ‘big chances’ over the aforementioned period with 15. Their opponents Southampton have conceded nine goals in their last six games, keeping just one clean sheet. The Saints have conceded 78 shots, the tenth-worst defensive record over that period and are also ranked seventh-worst for ‘big chances’ conceded with 13. Our Fix Algorithm predicts a point score of 5.4 for the Englishman.

Raheem Sterling (WAT)

Sterling failed to get on the score sheet against Bournemouth in gameweek 29 despite a threatening display, and the Englishman should be confident of adding to his total of two goals in the last six gameweeks as they face the Hornets at the Etihad. As the Custom Stats table shows, over this period Sterling has taken 12 shots, seven SiB and seven SoT with only Dendoncker (four), Mané (four), Pogba (four) and Babel (five) registering more ‘big chances’ than his three. He has also displayed a creative edge to his game creating eight chances. Over the last six gameweeks, the Champions top the table for goals scored (14), ‘big chances’ (23), shots (104), SiB (71), SoT (41) and given Watford’s defensive stats, Sterling owners have further cause for optimism. The Hornets have conceded nine goals in their last six league games, conceding 95 shots, with only West Ham (101) and Fulham (102) faring worse. They are also ranked seventh-worst for ‘big chances’ conceded over that period with 13. Our Fix Algorithm
