GW36 Captains: Burnley trip boosts Man City pair

The Scout says Aguero and Sterling are worthy challengers to Liverpool's Salah and Mane for armband this weekend

The race for the title could have a big influence on the choices of Fantasy Premier League captains in Gameweek 36.

The Liverpool pair of Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) and Sadio Mane (£10.0m) will be heavily backed at home to Huddersfield Town on Friday evening.

And Manchester City’s trip to Burnley also offers two standout options for the armband.

Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) have scored 19 and 17 league goals respectively this season.

Aguero has a prolific record against Burnley, scoring eight times in six meetings across all competitions.

But he has struggled in front of goal recently, with just one goal and three assists in his last six matches.

Sterling, on the other hand, heads to Turf Moor in fine form.

He has five goals and an assist in his last five league fixtures.

Differential options

Managers in need of a differential captain should consider Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) or Gerard Deulofeu (£5.6m).

Owned by 9.7 per cent, Vardy has four goals and 33 points in his last four appearances for Leicester City.

He comes up against an Arsenal defence with one away clean sheet all season.

Deulofeu enjoyed success against Watford's Saturday visitors, Wolverhampton Wanderers, earlier this month. He scored twice in the Hornets 3-2 FA Cup semi-final win.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.3m) could also be a big success for Fulham at home to Cardiff City, having scored a goal and provided an assist in his last two matches.

Mitrovic has attempted 16 shots inside the penalty area in the last four Gameweeks, more than any other player.
