Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 5?

Jan Sienkiewicz was the king of the Fantasy Premier League captain in 2019/20, scoring a whopping 657 points from the armband, the second highest in the world. He’s here to help once again and this time to evaluate Gameweek 5’s options.
The first international hiatus of the 2020/21 season has given fantasy managers plenty of time to weigh the captaincy decisions for the upcoming season
Game week 5.

October 4th, 2020 will be one of the most remarkable days in Premier League history, as the two most successful teams in English football conceded a total of 13 goals.

Despite the heavy 7-2 defeat by Aston Villa, Liverpool’s “Egyptian King” Mohamed Salah (£ 12.2m) still had a return of 13 points and is once again preferred by fantasy managers.

Meanwhile Tottenham Hotspur Duo Harry Kane (£ 10.6m) and Heung-Min son (£ 9.1m) are extradited after an impressive win at Old Trafford against West Ham United.

As usual, the Captain Sensible article previews the major upcoming games and rates each of the best options. In addition, data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium member area is used.

Captain Poll

Liverpool’s Salah and Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane and Son appear to be the three players at the center of this week’s debate – with the trio gaining 63.9% of our users’ votes in the Captaincy poll.

Further down the list are the Manchester City midfielders Kevin De Bruyne (£ 11.6m, 6.4% of the vote) and Raheem Sterling (£ 11.5m, 3.1%) didn’t get much attention ahead of their game against Arsenal. Similarly, despite the formidable form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£ 7.6m, 5.1%) and Richarlison (£ 7.9m, 3.5%), fantasy managers seem to be facing a persistent goal drought Toffees in the Merseyside Derby to watch out for games of recent years.

Surprisingly, none of Chelsea or Manchester United’s assets are in existence
considered by the majority of our voters. We may overlook some
exciting picks? Let’s take a look at this week’s crucial games.
