Captain Selection for GW10: Salah, Richarlison Or Hazard?

Share this article and help your fellow managers!

With Harry Kane ruled out, Lukaku blanking in his last 2 premier league games and the inability to predict Pep’s starting lineup we are left with these three options for captain in GW10.


9 GWs in and he is already being described as this season’s Josh King. Playing up front, the Hornets midfielder has been consistently bringing in the points. Richarlison has already contributed 3 goals and 4 assists, with a total of 50 FPL points. Richarlison has had 32 shots so far, which is the most for any midfielder, he also ranks second only to Mo Salah for shots inside the box, with 23 and second to Harry Kane for touches inside the box with 65. Watford take on Stoke at home and this encounter is almost certain to have goals. The Hornets have scored 5 goals in their 4 home games, while the Potters have shipped in 20 goals in their first 9 games! If there was ever a time to hand the captains armband to a mid-priced midfielder, it’s now!

Mohamed Salah

Mo Salah has managed to pop up with a goal even when Liverpool have been far from their best. As mentioned above, no other midfielder has had more shots from inside the penalty area than Salah. Liverpool host Huddersfield Town in GW10 and except for a blank in GW8 they have scored in all their home fixtures, 6 goals to be precise, and Salah has been directly involved in 3 of them. Huddersfield Town, on the other hand, have failed to score in their last 3 away games while conceding 4 goals. Liverpool will be expected to score at Anfield and judging by Salah’s form and the fact that he has been directly involved in 50% of Liverpool’s goals this season he is a good choice for captain in GW10.

Eden Hazard

After completing just his second 90mins of the season, Eden Hazard provided his first attacking returns with an assist against Watford. He has a fantastic record against the Cherries, 4 goals in 4 games. Bournemouth haven’t been the best at home either, with 1 win, a draw and 2 losses in their first 4 home games. Apart from providing an assist last GW, Hazard also made the most number of Key Passes for Chelsea. Hazard hasn’t exactly done enough to warrant a position on this list, however, he is owned by just 4.9% of managers and therefore makes an ideal differential captain.
