Fantasy Premier League tips gameweek 2 captains round-up

This Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 2 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, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

1⃣ Salah/Mané LIV, MID/MID

Mohamed Salah is the established ‘main man’ following his heroics last season, but the cheaper Sadio Mané outscored him in the 4-0 win over West Ham.

It’s still probably safest to stick with Salah as captain rather than try to second guess from game to game, but if you can’t afford him then Mané will certainly suffice.

A trip to Crystal Palace is unlikely to be straightforward, but Liverpool’s front three can devastate anyone on their day.

2⃣ Kane/Alli TOT, FWD/MID

Spurs play at home to a newly promoted Fulham that lost 0-2 at home to Crystal Palace on opening day, so they should be expected to win comfortably.

While it may well not prove to be that simple, Dele Alli looks to be rediscovering the form that got him 18 league goals two seasons ago.

And surely Harry Kane has to score in August sometime. Surely?

3⃣ Sergio Agüero MCI, FWD

If it weren’t for the slight niggling doubt that Pep Guardiola could rotate, we’d say Agüero at home to Huddersfield is this Gameweek’s outstanding candidate.

He’ll probably start, but it’s worth keeping your eye out for any team news just in case Gabriel Jesus is lined up for a run-out.
