Mohamed Salah vs West Ham (12.7)

With Manchester City and Arsenal not playing this week, there are fewer captain options in GW12.

However, when of the better ones is old favourite, Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool have been in dismal form this season, but things are starting to pick up at Anfield. The Reds put seven past Rangers in their last Champions League tie, with Salah scoring a hat-trick.

They then picked up a shock 1-0 win over Manchester City on Sunday, with Salah causing City’s defence a lot of issues and scoring the only goal of the game.

Leandro Trossard vs Nottingham Forest (6.9)

Brighton’s form has dipped since Graham Potter left for Chelsea.

However, the Seagulls likely fancy their chances against Nottingham Forest this week.

Forest are dead bottom of the Premier League, have scored just seven and have shipped 23 goals already this campaign.

As for Trossard, he is one of Brighton’s biggest goal threats this term, scoring five and assisting two.

Aleksandar Mitrovic vs Aston Villa (6.7)

Whilst Fulham are struggling to keep clean sheets, they remain a constant threat at the other end of the pitch.

Marco Silva’s side face an out-of-form Aston Villa this week, who have won just two in 10.

As for Mitrovic, he returned from injury over the weekend to net his seventh goal of the campaign.
