Gameweek 14 fixtures

Below we can see the fixture ticker – it has ordered the matches in difficulty order. According to the ticker the teams at the top have the easiest fixtures and the teams at the bottom have the toughest fixtures.

The fixture ticker can be very useful when trying to pick out a captain but other factors should also be considered.

The Options – Mohamed Salah

In terms of recent form it has been a bit of a mixed bag for Liverpool – winning three, drawing two and losing one in their last six matches in all competitions. When looking at their most recent underlying offensive data they sit first for expected goals scored, first for attempts, second for shots in the box and second for shots on target in the last six matches.

Liverpool have a very good fixtures against Fulham next up. The Cottagers have lost half of their last six and failed to keep a single clean sheet. Defensively in the last six they rank around mid-table for the majority of the main metrics including goals conceded, expected goals conceded and more.

Mohamed Salah (£13m) has been one of the most consistent FPL assets this season. In fact, the Egyptian sits top of the pile for points when compared to every other player in the game. In terms of recent form Salah has banked a huge seven goals in his last six. When it comes to his attacking stats he ranks fourth for non-penalty expected goal involvement, first for goals scored, fourth for shots in the box and second for big chances total.

Ollie Watkins

Aston Villa continue their impressive campaign. In their last six matches Villa have secured a huge five wins in all competitions. When looking at their attacking data in comparison to others they rank third for expected goals scored, joint third for actual goals scored, second for attempts on goal, first for shots in the box and first for big chances.

Bournemouth lay ahead for Aston Villa. The Cherries have been inconsistent this season and we can see that with their recent results – winning three and losing three of their last six. When focusing on their recent data they rank fourth worst for goals conceded, second worst for shots in the box conceded, third worst for shots on target conceded but mid-table for big chances conceded.

Leading the frontline is of course striker Ollie Watkins (£8.5m). He has been excellent this season and in terms of FPL sits as the third highest scorer in the game. When looking at his last six matches Watkins netted three goals and produced two assists. In terms of his underlying attacking data in the same period he sits first for non-penalty expected goal involvement, joint fourth for attempts on goal, joint second best for shots in the box and third for big chances total.

Erling Haaland

Manchester City are also in an interesting period of form – winning four and drawing two of their last six matches. In terms of their underlying attacking data in the same period they rank fourth for expected goals, the best for goals scored, third for attempts on goal, joint second best for big chances total and first for shots on target.

Tottenham lay ahead for Manchester City. Recently the London club have suffered with key injuries and bans that have hampered their performances – losing all three of their last matches. Their defensive data is also concerning. In the last six matches they rank third worst for expected goals and in the worst six teams for shots in the box conceded and big chances conceded.

Erling Haaland leads the current best attack in the league. The Norwegian sits second highest in terms of FPL points. When it comes to his last six matches Haaland has racked up five goals and two assists. The underlying data backs up his top performances as well. In the same period he ranks first for expected goals, second for goals, joint third for total attempts on goal, joint second best for shots in the box and first for big chances total.

Who is the best captain for Gameweek 14?

Ollie Watkins is a great option this week. However, the increasing form of Bournemouth and the fact that he does not take his sides penalties is working against him.

Mohamed Salah is also a very good captaincy pick this week. The only factor backing against the Egyptian king this week is the fact that Fulham have been improving defensively when looking at their underlying data.

Erling Haaland is the best captaincy option this week. Not only is he maintaining some of the best attacking data but he also faces a team in decline in Tottenham both in terms of results and defensive stats.
