There are 2 twitter polls which ask who your captain will be.

Contributor Picks

Here’s the picks of 17 contributors

Stats comparison

Salah v Vardy


I imagine both will start. The midweek FA Cup fixtures will surely take 2nd fiddle and I imagine neither will play in those games

Salah in selected away matches

Vardy in selected away matches

The Watford home defence

13th ranked at home with goals conceded. 17 from 13 games

They are 12th in xG conceded away from home with 19.52.

Shots per game against they are 12th with 11.8

The Norwich home defence

19th ranked at home with goals conceded. 26 from 13 games

19th in xG conceded away from home with 24.91.

Shots per game against they are 18th with 15.7


I suspect both Salah and Vardy will start

The anytime goalscorer odds have Salah and Vardy equal at £1.83

The Polls are clearly with Salah with Vardy generally 2nd

The FFGeek contributors are Salah 59% and Vardy 2nd at 24%

The stats comparison favours Vardy massively albeit on small data amounts although Salah has shown recently his ability to turn it on.   The trouble with Vardy’s stats is that it’s all before his form went seriously pear shaped.

The Watford defence looks a mid table defence whereas the Norwich defence looks like a clear relegation favourite.

Salah will take pens if Milner is off the field.  Vardy will take pens.

The FFGeek choice

I will follow the polls and I intuitively have more faith in Salah

  1. It is worth mentioning that the poll and my contributor article were both put out before Zimmerman was announced as injured. That news is significant and I have changed my captain from Salah to Vardy. I believe a number of the other contributors have too. Good luck this week all.
