First up, we have Mr Reliable, Mohamed Salah. Liverpool face West Ham at Anfield in GW28 with no second fixture, but the Egyptian King is still a captaincy option.

Salah has 28 points over the course of the last two gameweeks, scoring three goals, providing one assist and picking up five bonus points in that time.


Antonio Rudiger (£6.1m)

Chelsea assets are a MUST HAVE for GW28, with fixtures against Burnley and Norwich coming up for the Blues.

Antonio Rudiger is your safest bet when it comes to any Chelsea outfield asset and should start both games during the double gameweek, with the potential of attacking returns as well as clean sheet points.


Raul Jimenez (£7.5m)

Wolverhampton Wanderers play Crystal Palace and Watford at home in Double GW28, making striker Raul Jimenez a great captaincy option this week.

The Mexican number nine, who was rested in their last outing against West Ham will no doubt be in the starting lineup for the Crystal Palace match.


Philipe Coutinho (£7.4m)

Former Liverpool and Brazil international Coutinho is a sought after asset for GW28 and is a real captaincy option too, as Aston Villa come up against Southampton at home before travelling to face Leeds.

Leeds have conceded twenty, yes TWENTY goals over the course of the past five games. Coutinho has scored two goals and registered two assists since returning to the Premier League.
