FPL 2023-24 | Gameweek 36 | Captain Picks

Double Gameweek 35 perhaps didn’t see the returns that certain FPL managers would have hoped for. Mainly because Cole Palmer (£6.2m) could only manage 8 points with one assist over the course of Chelsea’s two fixtures. Heung-Min Son (£9.9m) picked up 9 points, scoring from the penalty spot against Arsenal but failing to gain an attacking return vs Chelsea. No sooner has that long gameweek come to an end, a new one is here. Therefore, we’ve singled out three premium Gameweek 36 captain choices along with a differential pick ahead of Friday’s 18:30 deadline.


Erling Haaland (£14.1m) vs WOL (H)

After coming off the bench to get on the scoresheet last time out against Nottingham Forest, Haaland will be hoping to be named in the starting line-up come Gameweek 36 and if he is, then more goals could be on the menu for the Norwegian striker. Haaland boasts three goals, an assist and 23 FPL points over the course of his last three Premier League appearances and 29 attacking returns across the entire league campaign so far. Man City host Wolves this Saturday.

Phil Foden (£8.4m) vs WOL (H)

Although Foden has actually played in many Premier League fixtures over the past few weeks, those he has played have seen him rack up attacking returns for fun. From Gameweek 31 onwards, Foden has appeared in just two league games for Man City, netting a hat-trick and 20 fantasy points against Aston Villa, before bagging a brace and 16 FPL points away at Brighton. With 199 points overall, Foden is the third highest-scoring midfielder within the FPL playerbase.

Alexander Isak (£8.3m) vs BUR (a)

A striker in red-hot form heading into Gameweek 36 is Newcastle’s Alexander Isak, who certainly warrants consideration in regards to the captaincy. He has accumulated two double-figure returns over the past three gameweeks, a 12-point-score against Spurs courtesy of two goals, complemented by another brace and 13 points most recently at home to Sheffield Utd. Nine goals and an assist across Isak’s last eight Premier League appearances are very enticing numbers from a fantasy perspective with the Magpies away at Burnley this weekend.


Kai Havertz (£7.5m) vs BOU (H)

Havertz continues to be the real sleeper pick among the Arsenal midfielders when it comes to FPL circles and with an ownership that is still yet to exceed 10%, those looking for a differential skipper need to take note. The German international is coming off the back of consecutive double-figure scores, backing up his two goals and 14 points against Chelsea with 13 points vs Spurs having scored and set one up for the Gunners. He certainly has the potential to accumulate another big haul in Gameweek 36 with Arsenal hosting Bournemouth.
