However exciting selecting a team may be in fpl, selecting a captain is the part that is one of the most for an FPL manager.
Moreover, the most important thing than selecting a good team is selecting a captain for that game week. The player who has the captain’s armband gets you x2 points on the points that the player has received.
FPL 2021-2022: Top Captain Choices for GW1 :
The Egyptian is currently one of the most popular most choices for being having the captains armband. As in the coming game week Liverpool face recently promoted Norwich City. The last time around in premier league Liverpool faced Norwich, The reds managed to score 5 goals in two fixtures conceding only once. Salah managed to get a goal and an assist. However, Salah didn’t manage an assist or a goal at Carrow Road. Salah has had a good pre-season and looks a very good option for the captain’s armband.
The Portuguese maestro was the highest points getter in the last season’s fpl scoring a total of 244 points. Bruno managed to grab 18 goals and moreover to that he added 14 assists. He was one of the crucial reasons behind Man United’s 2nd finish last season. They also are facing Leeds United in GW 1 who are not much of a defensively stronger side so we can expect Bruno to give us good returns in this game.
The Seneglaese winger who is partner in crime with the Egyptian King is listed 0.5m below the disadvantage is that he is not on penalties but rest all he is equally good he once was joint top scorer with Salah and Aubamayeng so this season will be hoping to replicate that form. He is owned only by 4.2% of the managers so has a differential edge.
Other potential captaincy choices:
Apart from these top captaincy picks there many options availble in Alexander Arnold,Chilwell, Bamford, Benrahma ,and Antonio.
High scoring fixture of FPL 2021-22 GW1 :
Norwich vs Liverpool looks like a fixture which looks like Liverpool are gonna hammer, Norwich. Thus, it will be the highest-scoring fixture of the opening GW of FPL so giving the captain’s armband to a player from Liverpool looks more likely and favourable for FPL managers.
Possible Captaincy options at Liverpool:
Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, and Alexander Arnold. These are the best possible captaincy options at Liverpool for the GW1
Possible Captaincy options at Norwich:
Football is an unpredictable game so we can expect some miracle at Carrow road too like last time in the Premier League Norwich managed to upset Manchester City.
Max Aarons and Teemu Pukki look most likely options for the captain’s armband from the Canaries as they have lots of absentees in their teams so Norwich will be without the regulars mostly.
