Who is the Best FPL Captain for GW32?

There are no double gameweeks in FPL GW32, but there is a title-deciding match played at the Etihad on Sunday. Because of this, it makes this gameweek’s captaincy choice really interesting.

For all of the latest stats and metrics on each of our captains, check our best FPL captains page.

Cristiano Ronaldo

  • Everton (a)
  • Chances of scoring: 47%

The headline maker for this edition is the Portuguese from Manchester. And statistically, there’s good reason for the Red Devil to lead all debates.

Statistically, Everton has one of the worst defences this season. Albeit the games they have in hand, four sides have conceded more goals than them this season (Newcastle, Leeds, Watford, and Norwich).

In his duels against the Toffees, he has netted five goals in his 12 appearances (prior to this season’s transfer). This means he’s scored in 41% of his matches against them. This is ranked fourth, of all the teams he’s made more than 10 league appearances against.

Due to Everton’s poor form and the lack of obvious captain choices elsewhere, Bruno Fernandes is another viable option.

Harry Kane/Son Heung Min

  • Aston Villa (a)
  • Chances of scoring: 40% / 35%

The next captain picks are the most in-form attacking duo in the league. Yes, they may have a separate section for each, but we feel it’s best to combine the pair, with a hint of Matt Doherty.

Both Kane and Son are ranked in the top two for the most points scored in the last six gameweeks, with Kane scoring 70 and the South Korean, just ten behind him. In addition, Doherty is ranked third in the metric, having scored 56, which is the most of any defender in that spell.

Furthermore, the attacking pair’s xG and xA numbers stand out spectacularly (through the season). Kane is ranked second overall with a combined 22.97, whilst Son is ranked fifth with 18.17.

Villa has conceded goals in their last three games, and have kept the 11 shutouts from 31 this season.

Mohamed Salah

  • Manchester City (a)
  • Chances of scoring: 35%

Another contender you can never discount is the notable Egyptian. Despite the fixture, it would hardly be a surprise to see him notch a goal, or more.

In the reverse fixture from GW7, he scored a whopping 13 points, consisting of a goal, an assist, and maximum bonus points.

Although he has blanked three in his last four, he is capable of producing something special at any given point. Excluding Tottenham, he’s scored against every other top-six side this season. This has included goals at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge.

James Maddison

  • Crystal Palace (H)
  • Chances of scoring: 24%

Leicester are in general a side you should be looking at. Especially, their playmaker and leading club FPL scorer, Maddison.

The last time he blanked when Leicester scored, was in GW23 away to Brighton. He too, registered a goal in an 18-minute away to Burnley, in GW27.

He may only have a 24% chance of scoring but his propensity for assists arguably puts him ahead of teammates such as Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Ihenacho.

The Foxes also have three double gameweeks to come, which is another reason to invest in Leicester players have you not already.
