Some stats

Here I’m looking at Salah home to Leicester and Aubameyang home to Cardiff

Gametime

I’d be surprised if either didn’t start.  Aubameyang played on Friday and Liverpool are out of the FA Cup so Salah well rested.

Salah’s Stats

Here’s Salah’s starts in 18/19 against non top 6 sides at home

fantasy premier league captain tips GW24

Returns in 7/8 games, 3 double figure scores and backed up by extremely good underlying stats.

Overall points per 90 mins adjusted is 7.83 and he’s returned a goal or assist in 14 of his 22 starts which is 64%.

The Leicester away defence against top 6 sides

fantasy premier league captain tips GW24

Overall the Leicester defence is 5th in goals conceded with 29 and also 6th in xG conceded.

Away they are ranked 9th equal with 17 goals conceded from 12 games and ranked 8th with xG conceded.

Maguire looks like he will return to the side which should help

Aubameyangs stats

Here’s Aubameyang’s starts in 18/19 against non top 6 sides at home

Returns in 5/8 games, 2 double figure scores and backed up by very good underlying stats.

Overall points per 90 mins adjusted is 6.42 and he’s returned a goal or assist in 10 of his 21 starts which is 48%.

The Cardiff away defence against top 6 sides

Overall the Cardiff defence is 19th in goals conceded with 44 and also 18th in xG conceded.

Away they are ranked 13th equal with 21 goals conceded from 11 games and ranked 18th with xG conceded.

Defence and attack comparisons

Summary





Gametime wise I think both will start.  Salah likely as a CF and Aubameyang possibly as a left sided forward although recently him and Lacazette have played as a pair.

Aubameyang will have pens and Salah only if Milner is off the pitch.

The bookies odds for anytime goal scoring see Salah marginally ahead at £161 vs £1.67

The polls are hugely in favour of Salah.  The average comparison of 63% vs 16% for Aubameyang

Salah has the better of the stats by a reasonable margin but Cardiff is by far the worst defence.  So it depends on where you think the important emphasis should be

The FFGeek choice

I’ll be going for Salah without question.  I don’t own Aubameyang anyway but the polls are too strong.  However I think Aubameyang has decent stats and the Cardiff defence is terrible.

  1. Fabianski, Patricio
    Doherty, Robertson, Digne, Wan-Bissaka, Kolasinac
    Pogba, Richarlison, Martial, Anderson, Salah
    Jimenez, Rashford, Quarner.

    1 Transfer 6.6itb. WC, FH & TC intact.
    Not straight forward imo, I thought about Ederson or Sane.
    Any feedback gratefully received.
    Currently 7k.

  2. Gonzo I’d go for Anderson out Son in. West ham’s fixtures aren’t great and Anderson’s gone off the boil, whilst son has been immense and has 3 home games in a row.
    You could survive with carrying over though, strong team if you were uncertain this week.
