Here are the top 4 captaincy options for Fantasy Premier League GW26
To anyone who thought that captaining Sergio Aguero last week was going to be a mistake, he played against Arsenal and that’s the kind of opportunity that smart players of this highly addictive game would never pass up on.
In terms of standard players, Wan-Bissaka and Doherty both scored 5 points each because of clean sheets while Raul Jimenez notched up another 9 points. But the biggest surprise of the week came in the form of Jeffrey Schlupp and Bobby Reid, who scored 14 and 13 points respectively.
Here are the four best captain picks for GW26 of this season’s Fantasy Premier League:4
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – Arsenal
The Gabonese international hasn’t been in amazing form recently and despite his 12 points on GW24, he has picked up only two points in three games out of the last four gameweeks.
This game could be the perfect opportunity to bring him back as Arsenal face Huddersfield town this weekend who are bottom of the league and were recently demolished 5-0 by Chelsea.
Mohamed Salah – Liverpool
The Egyptian magician has been in blistering form all season and is naturally the highest scorer in FPL so far, having already notched up his believers a whopping 181 points on his own.
With Liverpool facing Bournemouth on the back of a disappointing draw at the London Stadium, Klopp is certainly going to expect a reaction and this could be the right incentive for FPL players to captain last season’s Puskas Award winner.
Marcus Rashford – Manchester United
Rashford is one of the Manchester United players who has been consistently scoring FPL points. He has been selected by more than 40% of all the players.
He has scored two points only on one occasion in the last 6 game weeks, which is quite an achievement. With United facing the worst defence in the league, Rashford could prosper against the Cottagers.
Heung-Min Son – Tottenham
For anyone going for the differential captain this week, look no further than last week’s Tottenham goalscorer Heung-Min Son, who has really stepped up to the place in the absence of Harry Kane.
At 16.3%, he has a fairly strong differential and the potential to climb a lot given that he is the 11th highest points scorer this season despite missing a multitude of games.
