FPL Show: Why Kane edges Iheanacho for captaincy

30 Apr 2021

Fantasy expert David Munday says Spurs striker is standout pick despite form of Leicester forward

For Fantasy Premier League expert David Munday, Tottenham Hotspur's home match against relegated Sheffield United makes Harry Kane (£11.8m) the standout captain choice in Gameweek 34.

While Leicester City's in-form Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.2m) has scored nine times across his last seven Premier League starts, Munday says Kane's fixture and huge 46 per cent ownership makes him a better pick.

"I'm edging towards Kane," he says on the latest FPL Show.

"The two players are in a similar position in terms of form and stats. They are both in the top three in the whole league for shots in the box, big chances, shots on target, so they're level there.

"But Sheffield United are a team capable of defending worse [than Iheanacho's opponents Southampton]. They are bottom of the league for expected goals conceded over the last six matches."

Fellow FPL expert Az Phillips, however, remains cautious about giving the Spurs forward the armband.

"My one issue with Kane is how fit is he?" Phillips adds. "I sense he was rushed back a bit for the EFL Cup final and he barely touched the ball, so we don't know how fit he is."
