Fantasy Premier League managers face traditional penalties between Liverpool and Manchester City for the Gameweek 15 captain.
With Manchester United, Tottenham and Leicester all confronting more balanced opponents during Boxing Day matches, attention is fiercely focused. Mohamed Salah (£ 12.4 million), Kevin De Bruyne (£ 11.8 million) and colleagues.
They will face West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, respectively, favorite rivals – but what are the best assets for the captaincy?
As usual, Captain Sensible’s article is here and ready to help you make the best choice.

Unsurprisingly, Salah leads the Gameweek 15 Week Captain Poll. West Brom have conceded the second most goals in all matches this season (17) and on the road (14).
And let’s not forget how hot Salah looks anyway. In just half an hour at Selhurst Park, he had netted 16 points, averaging 8.8 in every match in the previous four games.
As a result, 67.1% of you go for the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” approach on Boxing Day.
Although he is the second most supported candidate in the fifteenth round of the fifteenth round, De Bruyne is 58.2 percentage points behind Al Masry.
The Belgian case is not a downgrade as some might think. He brought back points of sorts in each of his last three points at Etihad Stadium, scoring two double-digit matches with an average of 9.3 points per match.
Meanwhile, the Magpies have an unenviable record when visiting Manchester City. They have lost their last five Premier League visits to the Etihad Stadium, 21-3. In three of those matches, the home team scored at least five times.
Bruno Fernandez (£ 11.0m) He has a 7.5% support for the arm badge despite scoring 17 points against Leeds and being discharged in just one away game in the Premier League since joining Manchester United.
Leicester have only one clean sheet at home this season, so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be deluding their chances of scoring, as do 1.9% of the voters who supported. Anthony Martial (8.7 million pounds) for the captain.
However, the Red Devils had a bit of loopholes down the road despite their impressive win rate in matches like this, conceding an average of 1.5 goals per match away from home.
This is good news for the 3.8% of our readers who voted for them Jimmy Vardy (10.2 million pounds) in the poll. The campaign’s double-digit fifth result at Tottenham will be a huge encouragement for them, even though only one of them has come in at King Power Stadium, with Vardy averaging 4.7 points per game this season.
Harry Kane (£ 11.0 million), Jack Grealish (7.8 million pounds), Andrew Robertson (£ 7.3m), Sadio Mane (£ 11.9 million), Riyad Mahrez (£ 8.3 million) and Olivier Giroud (£ 6.7m) are the only other players backed by more than 1%.
