Of course, with the international break coming to an end, players could be coming back with injuries or fatigue. So, be aware that your team could struggle this weekend without the proper players inserted into your starting XI. The same goes for selecting your captain, as a heavy international break could hurt their FPL output.

3 Sensational captain options

Henrikh Mkhitaryan – 26 points

Manchester United’s attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan has started the season well. He is currently tied for the Red Devils’ lead in total FPL points with 26. Manchester United travel to Stoke on Saturday and despite Stoke looking decent in their last two matches, Mkhitaryan and company should be far too much for the Potters.

Ahmed El-Sayed Hegazi – 25 points

Ahmed Hegazi started the season great with 15 and eight points performances, respectively. Sure, his gameweek 3 return against Stoke wasn’t as good, but he will rebound this week against Brighton. West Brom have been surprisingly good in the opening part of the season. Hegazi’s West Brom are playing a Brighton side that haven’t scored yet in 2017-18. The Baggies have given up just one goal in three matches.

Mohamed Salah – 23 points

There are plenty of FPL managers with Mohamed Salah in their team that won’t make him captain this week, but the Liverpool man has the potential for a big day against Manchester City. The Blues’ defence hasn’t been great despite the money paid to assemble it. Salah’s pace and ability to be used as an outlet for Liverpool’s quick counter-attacker has been unstoppable this term. He could have his way with City’s defence, especially with the team’s less mobile centre-backs. Liverpool’s quick defence to attack could mull City at the Etihad on Saturday. So far, Salah’s play has made Liverpool fans nearly forget about Philippe Coutinho.
