FPL GW7 Best Captain: Double for Burnley/Luton

Haaland has scored at least 1 goal in his last 4 premier league games and facing Wolves (a) he still presents himself as a great captaincy pick.

However, the first double GW of the season presents some intriguing alternatives for FPL managers seeking differential captaincy picks.

Let’s look at the best captaincy picks for GW7.

Erling Haaland

  • Fixture: Wolves (a)
  • Predicted Points: 7.1
  • Ownership: 92%

Haaland remains a top captaincy choice week in and week out because of his high ownership & consistency.

He ranks 3rd in predicted points for this week, trailing only behind Morris and Koleosho, both of whom have double GWs.

In last year’s fixture against Wolves away, Haaland scored 1 goal, and when playing at home, he had a hattrick against them.

While there are certainly differential options to consider for the captaincy, it’s very challenging to ignore Haaland, given his ownership of 92%

Carlton Morris

  • Fixture: Everton (a), Burnley (H)
  • Predicted Points: 8.1
  • Ownership: 5%

Morris emerges as a great option for GW7, boasting the highest predicted points for the week.

He has been the main man for Luton Town, playing a full 90 minutes in 4 out of 5 Premier League games and contributing to all of their goals.

With fixtures against Everton and Burnley, Morris has the opportunity to provide returns in two games, making him a valuable differential pick.

Furthermore, he has been averaging 5.2 points per match as well (4th best in forwards).

Zeki Amdouni / Luca Koleosho 

  • Fixture: Newcastle (a), Luton (a)
  • Predicted Points: 6.7, 7.7
  • Ownership: 0%, 0%

For FPL managers seeking an ultra-differential pick, Amdouni and Koleosho are the way to go for GW7.

This Burnley duo is scheduled to play against Newcastle and Luton Town.

According to our anytime return odds, Amdouni and Koleosho boast impressive percentages of 56% and 54%, respectively.

Marcus Rashford

  • Fixture: Crystal Palace (H)
  • Predicted Points: 6.0
  • Ownership: 30%

Rashford has had an underwhelming start to the season, with 3 G/A in 6 games, returning only twice.

However, there are positive signs in his underlying statistics, with a decent (xGI) per 90 minutes of 0.59.

In his last 3 games, Rashford’s xGI values have been 0.41, 0.71, and 0.96, respectively.

The fixture against Crystal Palace at home presents the perfect opportunity for Rashford to rediscover his goalscoring form.

United recently faced Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup, winning 3-0.

Rashford also found the net against Palace at home last season.
