Selecting a captain for the upcoming double gameweek presents a challenge, especially with the number of fully fit players shrinking in recent days. Mohamed Salah has raised concerns among FPL owners with continuous poor performances lately, while Erling Haaland was absent during Manchester City’s dominant victory over Brighton. This leaves managers thinking over who to trust with the captain’s armband. Here are the top captaincy choices for FPL Gameweek 35:

Mohamed Salah

Despite Liverpool’s recent struggles since the international break, Mohamed Salah remains a reliable captaincy option. While he has only scored two goals in this period, Salah’s underlying statistics are impressive, leading the charts for shots taken and ranking second for big chances created. With Salah’s proven ability to deliver points, highlighted by his performance in the reverse fixture against West Ham earlier in the season, he remains a solid option for the captain’s armband in this gameweek.

Son Heung-min

Leading the captaincy race is Son Heung-min, who continues to show high potential, particularly as he operates as Tottenham’s central striker. With Spurs entering this double gameweek well-rested compared to their opponents, Son’s recent form, though somewhat inconsistent by his standards, remains promising. Despite only one goal and one assist in his last four appearances since the international break, Son has a solid record of delivering, highlighted by his brace in the reverse fixture against Arsenal earlier in the season.

Cole Palmer

Another strong contender is Chelsea’s Cole Palmer, who missed the recent defeat to Arsenal due to illness, raising doubts over his potential minutes in the upcoming matches. Nonetheless, Palmer has established himself as a key fantasy asset this season, with four double-digit hauls in his last five appearances, despite not becoming a regular for Chelsea until Gameweek 7.
