The Gameweek 19 captain decision is another tricky one, with 3 big premium assets providing last time out. A start is far from guaranteed at this stage of the season, but FPL Connect looks to crunch the all important numbers.

The press conferences, injury and team news is very scarce for Gameweek 19 but Ben Dinnery is the best source to use over the next few hours. There’s some news from Manchester United ahead of a great fixture run.
No fresh injury worries for #MUFC following a comprehensive win at Cardiff. Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo & Scott McTominay are among those who will be checked after missing out on Saturday through injury. Late decision on Romelu Lukaku (compassionate leave).

Liverpool are leading the way for clean sheets, they are on 11 and 3 clear of Manchester City and Chelsea with 8. A home game against a goal-shy Newcastle side could provide an ideal opportunity to add to the tally.

We are at a junction with premium options: Salah, Kane and Aubameyang all impressed last week, with Sterling and Hazard disappointed. Adam Hopcroft looks at the options and where the captaincy should go this week.
My take on it
Salah – is in great form but has blanked in every match v top 6 this season. I'd also expect him to get reduced mins v Newcastle. On the road Newcastle have been resilient & Klopp will try and conserve energy. I'd only captain v new but think kane is better pick https://t.co/wdsNSmiUC6

Knish on Footie looks at the key Manchester United assets to own as they move into the Solskjær era and have a favourable run of fixtures. There’s doubts surrounding Martial’s fitness for Gameweek 19 though – be warned!
1/7 A @ManUtd midfielder #FPL transfer thread. My thoughts on Martial (7.3M) vs Pogba (7.8M) vs Lingard (6.7M). Let's go! If budget isn't an option, then I think Pogba or Martial are the clear front-runners, despite Lingard's 4 goals in 3 gameweeks (and 18 pt score at Cardiff).
