Who is the best FPL Captain for GW35?

There are just four gameweeks to go in Fantasy Premier League. FPL GW35 is a single GW before back to back doubles.

There is the chance of a captaincy split too, with all premium strikers facing favourable opponents. You can check out our best FPL Captains page here, for the full list of alternatives. Or, follow one of the big names below.

Harry Kane

  • Leicester City (H)
  • Chances of scoring: 54%

One of the favourites for the armband this gameweek, has a phenomenal record against his upcoming opponents. Tottenham’s very own, Kane, has had a whopping 19 goal contributions in his 13 league matches against the Foxes. This consists of 13 goals and three assists.

Included in his record, is his double-digit 11-point return in their 3-2 win in the reverse fixture back in GW22. This included a goal, an assist, and two bonus points

From Leicester’s seven away matches at Tottenham, they have managed just a mere two shutouts (including last season).

Although the Foxes do have six games to play, six sides have conceded more goals than them this season. The teams who have shipped more are Southampton, Newcastle, Leeds, and the three sides who occupy the relegation places.

Leicester are also expected to play a much rotated side following their Europa League Conference tie against Roma.

Cristiano Ronaldo

  • Brentford (H)
  • Chances of scoring: 51%

Another star-studded premium striker worth contemplating is the 37-year old Portuguese. Although Man United have had a well below-par season, Ronaldo is doing what he can to drag the team along.

He has clinched seven goals in his last three league starts from home matches. This consists of two hat-tricks, achieved against Tottenham and Norwich City.

Furthermore, the number 7 from Manchester is ranked second for the most points scored in the last six gameweeks with 51 points.

Plus, he is ranked fifth overall, for combined xG and xA, with a metric of 20.39. The former Juventus striker may not have any double gameweeks left. However, he is still worth considering, as a short-term option to firepower your rankings.

Mohamed Salah

  • Newcastle United (a)
  • Chances of scoring: 51%

Of course, as per usual, it’s hard to go a gameweek without discussing the Egyptian King’s armband case. He is ranked top for xG (expected goals) throughout the season, with 22.73.

Adding onto this, he too is number one for points per million, with a PPM of 19.17, among all players who have scored more than 100 fantasy points this campaign.

Salah has registered attacking returns in six of his eight matchups against the Toons, including his penalty converted in the reverse fixture this season, back in GW17, complimenting their 3-1 triumph. However, he hasn’t scored in his last two visits to St. James Park.

It’s safe to say though, he has his form in the last three gameweeks. This has consisted of a pair of goals, alongside three assists.

Kai Havertz

  • Everton (a)
  • Chances of soring: 36%

For those who go with the saying ‘fortune favours brave’, look no further than the 22-year-old from West London.

In Havertz’s last four away matches, he has returned in each of them. The German has scored a huge four goals, alongside two assists and three bonus points.

Furthermore, he has two double gameweeks to finish off the season, in GW36 and GW37. Chelsea has too, scored the second most away goals of any side this campaign, and are ranked second overall from a points tally perspective.
