Ideal FPL differential captaincy candidates for game week 11
Fantasy Premier League managers will definitely be looking for differential captains as they aim to gain pace in their respective mini-leagues. Though these options are a huge risk in play, if picked rightly, they can be a powerful source of differential points.
Here, we take a look at the three ideal differential captaincy candidates who could spark up game week 11.
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
It seems to be as though the real Salah is back and once again lighting up the Premier League with his goals. The Egyptian now has 4 goals in last 4 games. His price has already risen by £0.1 million and is now valued at £13 million as the Reds travel to the Emirates.
Interestingly, Salah has scored in all 3 of his games against Arsenal, scoring in both fixtures last season as well as once during his time at Chelsea. Liverpool are in good form as well and have a kind run of fixtures, meaning the Egyptian will only be a differential source this weekend.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City)
Though Vardy was benched in the last game, Leicester looked a completely different side when he came on as a substitute. If not a little rusty, Vardy would have definitely found the back of the net. The Foxes come up against Cardiff City in the league this weekend and the English forward is primed to start the game.
Leicester are on the back of a heartbreaking week that saw club owner Vichai Srivadhanaprabha’s demise in a helicopter crash and the club should come out guns blazing looking for a result. Expect Vardy to get amongst the goals.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Anything Aubameyang is touching at the moment turns into goals. The Gabon international scored braces in two of the last three games after which he scored another against Crystal Palace last weekend. He seems to be making all the difference whenever selected and is in good form going into the game against Liverpool.
Though the Reds are one of the most resilient teams in the league this season, Arsenal have always delivered goals against Liverpool and many can back the former Dortmund striker to get in on the act.
