GW38+ Captains: Red-hot Sterling to hit double figures

Man City winger has scored 10+ points in four of last six Gameweeks and faces relegated Norwich City in FPL's final Gameweek

A run of four double-figure returns in six appearances has made Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) the top target for Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 38+.

The Manchester City winger has earned 106,000 new owners ahead of Sunday's 15:00 BST deadline, more than any other player.

And a home match with Norwich City can bring in another big captaincy haul for Sterling. The relegated Canaries have lost each of their last nine matches.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) and David Silva (£7.5m) provide tempting armband alternatives for Man City.

De Bruyne's nine double-figure hauls are more than any team-mate this season.

Silva, meanwhile, has 39 points in his last three home fixtures. The Spaniard looks set to start in his final Premier League match for Pep Guardiola's side.

Prizes at stake

The race for the Golden Boot lifts the appeal of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) and Jamie Vardy (£9.7m).

Liverpool's Salah is expected to remain as the most-selected captain for Gameweek 38+.

He scored and earned nine points against his hosts, Newcastle United, earlier this season.

Aubameyang also enjoyed a successful previous meeting with his weekend opponents, Watford. The Arsenal striker scored twice to claim 13 points in Gameweek 4.

Although Vardy is at home to Manchester United, the Leicester City striker has been reliable in recent matches, providing attacking returns in four of the last five Gameweeks.

Man Utd options

Anthony Martial (£8.5m) and Bruno Fernandes (£9.1m) could also make the difference as the Red Devils look to secure a top-four finish at the King Power Stadium.

Martial has six goals and five assists in his last seven outings, while Fernandes has averaged 10 points per away match since joining in January.

Spurs alternatives

Finally, Tottenham Hotspur pair Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.7m) could punish Crystal Palace.

Kane has scored twice in each of his last two matches, totalling 25 points.

Son produced two goals and 16 points in his last meeting with the Eagles.
