Kane? Iheanacho? Wood? The Scout's panel reveal their FPL armband picks

The Scout's panel of experts give their verdicts on who managers should captain ahead of the Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 34 deadline of 18:30 BST on Friday 30 April.

It's a week not to overthink the captain decision. The league’s best striker versus the league’s worst defence means Harry Kane (£11.8m) is my captain.

Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.2m) looks in good form but Kane is facing an opponent likely to sit deep, which makes him the standout option.

I expect Tottenham Hotspur to get the majority of possession, which suits Kane's shoot-on-sight philosophy.

With the league's top scorer Kane playing the league's bottom side Sheffield United, captaincy is a bit of a no-brainer this week.

Iheanacho and Chris Wood (£6.3m) are also great picks if you want to differentiate.

For the Spurs Double Gameweek 32 I was lucky my captain Son Heung-min (£9.5m) matched Kane in the end. This time I'm playing it safe and going for Kane.

Kane has been captain reliable for me in recent weeks and whenever I have deferred, I have been punished. The fixture this week is too good to ignore him.

While goal and assist leader Kane is likely the best captaincy option against Sheff Utd, Iheanacho is a close second after scoring nine goals and providing an assist in his last seven appearances.
