FPL Gameweek 17 Tips

Gameweek 16 produced a higher than usual average in comparison to the rest of the season. Pierre Aubameyang had the accolade of being both the most transferred in player and most captained. He produced a late assist to prevent him from only returning two points. That assist will have felt like little consolation as non Salah owners had to watch the Egyptian regain the form of last season when he scored a hat-trick against Bournemouth. His 21 points unsurprisingly resulted in him being the highest scoring player of the gameweek.

Gameweek 17 Captain Choice

There have been some tough captain choices in recent gameweeks but Gameweek 17 isn’t one of them. With Tottenham hosting a 17th placed Burnley, Harry Kane is the clear captain choice.

The bookmakers have Mohamed Salah as the second most likely to score in the gameweek, just. However, it should be noted that Salah blanked in both fixtures against Man Utd last season.

Elsewhere, other captain contenders, Eden Hazard, Pierre Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling are all closely matched.
