Captaincy is a big discussion point ahead of the weekend and FPL Fly is endorsing a move for a differential, with negatives against some of the most popular options. Will you stick with a premium?
Looking at bookies odds can help to nail down that captain decision. It’s Aubameyang who leads the way for the Gameweek 2 tips, but don’t overlook Salah and Sterling.

Auba – 59%
Kun – 54%

Salah and Sterling are likely to be the most popular options for captaincy this weekend. The FPL Prince sets out the pros and cons for each of these premium options, it’s a close call.
Salah VS Sterling for captaincy in GW2:
? Hat trick last week
? At home
? Decent record vs top 6
? Better Fixture
? Southampton conceded 3 to Burnley
? Played 120mins midweek
? Good record vs Southampton
Think I still favour Salah just! #FPL

Things go from bad to worse for Liverpool defenders, with Adrian now a doubt for Gameweek 2. Ben Dinnery provides an update, those heavily invested in that defence are concerned.
Klopp says Adrian has an ankle problem which was caused by a supporter who invaded the pitch in Istanbul. "Yesterday it was swollen, but we have to see." #LFC
