Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1: Captains

Fantasy Premier League tips gameweek 1 captains round-up

This Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 captains round-up is here to help you select a skipper and a handy vice-captain.

Recommended captain picks for this Gameweek include players from Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

1⃣ Salah/Mané/Firmino LIV, MID/MID/FWD

Listed in order of preference for the opening day home game against West Ham – Mohamed Salah is the main man, but if he’s too expensive for you then Sadio Mané will suffice.

While Roberto Firmino also has the potential to score highly, the fact he’s listed as a forward means he scores one point fewer per goal – two points factoring in captaincy.

2⃣ Harry Kane TOT, FWD

Surely he’s got to score a goal in August eventually? World Cup hangover notwithstanding, he’ll have the chance to do so away to Newcastle.

3⃣ Sergio Agüero MCI, FWD

Hopes are high that he’ll be fit and fresh for the new season, starting with an opening day trip to a team he has a good record against in Arsenal.
