Gameweek 32 of Fantasy Premier League arrives this weekend and kicks off with a cracker between Everton and Tottenham on Friday evening, both sides needing to win if they are to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive.
Elsewhere in-form West Ham will hope to keep their own Champions League chase alive at Newcastle, whilst Leeds host Liverpool on Monday evening in what promises to be a fascinating match-up at Elland Road.
As always we’re on hand with our best advice for the gameweek ahead, here are four of the best captaincy options for gameweek 32 of Fantasy Premier League.
It’s difficult to look beyond Harry Kane for the captain’s armband this week and the game’s leading forward is likely to attract huge figures in gameweek 32, Tottenham the only side possessing a double gameweek with fixtures against both Everton and Southampton.
Spurs remain frustratingly inconsistent and fell to defeat to Manchester United last time out, but Kane remains amongst the most reliable FPL assets and leads the Premier League for both goals and assists.
Kane will face an Everton side with an indifferent home record on Friday night, the Toffees having won just five of their 15 home fixtures ahead of the visit of the north Londoners.
Spurs’ second fixture is a home clash with struggling Southampton on Wednesday, the Saints having endured an alarming run of form to lose 11 of their past 14 league fixtures.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have conceded at least two goals in each of their past four, including an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion in gameweek 31.
Kane will be relishing the prospect of taking on a Southampton side he has enjoyed plenty of goalscoring success against in recent seasons as he looks to strengthen his claim to the Golden Boot.
If you’re looking for a differential option this weekend than Son Heung-Min shapes as an interesting selection, a player likely to be overlooked by those who own Kane but an asset capable of delivering explosive point hauls.
Son returned to form with a goal in the defeat to Manchester United last weekend and will have two chances to add to his haul of 187 points this season in gameweek 32, the fourth-highest figure of any player behind only Bruno Fernandes, Kane and Mohamed Salah.
The 28-year-old’s 23 goal involvements (14G, 9A) rank him third in the Premier League this season, whilst his share of set-piece duties for Spurs makes him an increasingly attractive options.
Son faces Everton and Southampton in gameweek 32 and will be hoping for a repeat of his explosive haul against the Saints earlier in the season, the South Korea international netting four times in a 5-2 win at St Mary’s to haul a mammoth 24 points.
Captaining Arsenal assets is a brave strategy given the Gunners’ inconsistency this season, but Alexandre Lacazette could prove a fine option based on form and fixture in gameweek 32.
The forward has scored five league goals in his past six appearances in addition to providing an assist, netting twice in last weekend’s 3-0 win at Sheffield United to earn a season-high of 13 points.
Arsenal face another relegation-threatened side this weekend as Fulham travel to the Emirates, the signs of a renaissance for Scott Parker’s side having faltered of late with four consecutive Premier League defeats.
Lacazette’s five big chances over the past four gameweeks are the joint-most of any player in the division, whilst his eight shots from inside the box are at least twice as many as any Arsenal teammate.
Seemingly cemented as Arteta’s first-choice to lead the line, Lacazette will be confident of maintaining his form against the Cottagers ahead of an appealing run of fixtures for Arsenal.
Kelechi Iheanacho just can’t stop scoring for Leicester at the moment, the forward enjoying the best run of his Premier League career with nine goals in six appearances across all competitions.
Iheanacho’s eight goals since February 3 are the joint-most in the division alongside Jesse Lingard, the Nigeria international having overshadowed teammate Jamie Vardy in recent weeks.
The 24-year-old scored twice in the 3-2 defeat to West Ham last weekend for his second double-digit haul in just three fixtures and will be in confident mood as West Brom visit the King Power Stadium this weekend.
West Brom have enjoyed their best performances of the season with wins over Chelsea and Southampton in recent weeks, but Brendan Rodgers’ side can ill-afford another poor performance after slipping to defeat at the London Stadium in gameweek 31.
Fantasy Premier League is all about picking the in-form players and there are few forwards performing with the consistency of Iheanacho right now.
