Liverpool’s key attackers are among the main captaincy favourites in Gameweek 31 of Fantasy Premier League.
The Merseysiders face a Fulham side with the worst defensive record in the Premier League, conceding 68 goals.
Mohamed Salah (£13.4m) has been the top armband choice in seven of the last eight Gameweeks.
*Numbers by the thousands
But his 45.3 per cent owners have been disappointed with his recent output. Salah has just one goal and one assist in his last seven appearances.
By comparison, his team-mate Sadio Mane (£9.9m) visits Craven Cottage in prolific form.
Mane's eight goals in the last eight Gameweeks suggests he will pose the main challenge to Salah's dominance of the armband.
The Senegalese extended his scoring streak with two goals in the midweek UEFA Champions League win over Bayern Munich.
But, Salah remains Liverpool’s most reliable attacker on the road this season.
His seven away goals are more than any team-mate and his 47 shots and 24 shots on target on the road rank among the top two players in FPL.
His double against Burnley last Sunday means he has seven goals and an assist in his last eight Gameweek starts.
Hazard produced 10 points against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend, his eighth double-digit haul of the season.
And Higuain has impressed since arriving in January. He has recorded 25 shots on goal in the last six Gameweeks, more than any other player.
Ben McNair (@drbenmcnair): It has to be Salah or Mane. It’s even worth considering the Triple Captain chip if you don’t intend to play it in a Double Gameweek. I’m backing Salah. He’s looked sharp and Fulham may struggle to double-up on him as effectively as some of Liverpool’s recent opponents.
Holly Shand (@FFCommunity_): I have Salah as my only Liverpool attacker, so it’s an easy decision.
Neal Thurman (@nealjthurman): Hard to see any non-Liverpool options as captain so it's a coin flip between Salah and Mane.
Nick and Tom (@WGTA_FPL): Mane is my differential captain. He passes the eye test and his underlying statistics in recent matches are impressive.
Paul Gee (@FplPaulGee): As the key contender, it will be Mane for me.
