The Scout’s panel of Fantasy Premier League experts give their thoughts on who to captain in Gameweek 24 ahead of the deadline at 11:00 GMT on Saturday 10 February.

There is no doubt Liverpool have the standout fixture at home to Burnley, so Diogo Jota (£8.1m) and Darwin Nunez (£7.4m) will tempt me as Klopp’s men look to bounce back from their defeat at Arsenal. Erling Haaland (£14.2m), however, will be hard to resist now he’s got minutes under his belt and with his starting spot looking pretty secure.

I’ll likely go Haaland, but Richarlison (£7.2m) has really caught the eye recently. The haul against Everton means that he is now captain material, particularly with key creative players like James Maddison (£7.9m) back in the starting XI.

Haaland is the obvious captain, having played 86 minutes versus Brentford. It would be either him or a roll of the dice on the underlying data king Nunez, who faces a very open Burnley side.

Manchester City are firing on all cylinders and now that Haaland has started a match following his return from injury, he is my top captain pick at home to Everton.
Andy Park (@FPL_Sonaldo)
There are a couple of captaincy shouts in Gameweek 24, but Haaland at home to Everton is where I will be going. You could also captain Phil Foden (£8.0m), who is coming off his second hat-trick in his Man City career. I also fancy a Liverpool player against Burnley, as a Nunez or Jota haul might be coming soon.
There are a lot of good picks with favourable fixtures again. Haaland is the clear No 1, but Nunez or Jota are also good shouts with high points ceilings.

Haaland is likely to take it, although I do fancy Liverpool to actually score more goals than Man City. Nunez or Jota are likely to be my transfer in, so they could be good differential shouts, or Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.5m), who may end up playing in midfield.

I hate captaining a player in the first match of the Gameweek, but it is very hard to look anywhere other than Haaland. I am going to invest in either Nunez or Jota, so they both are good options too, and I am also keen on leaving the armband with Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) for the third Gameweek in a row.
