Play safe with Salah or take a risk? The Scout's panel reveal their armband picks

The Scout's panel of experts give their verdicts on who managers should captain ahead of the Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 10 deadline of 11:00 BST on Saturday 30 October.

What the experts say
Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

There are a few great options for the captain's armband this week, including the likes of Phil Foden (£8.1m) against Crystal Palace and Mason Mount (£7.5m) against Newcastle United. However, Mohamed Salah (£12.9m) is likely to punish managers who don't captain him for Liverpool's home match against Brighton & Hove Albion and therefore he wears the armband for me...again!

Just play the game simply and pick Salah as captain. 

Chuck Booth (@ChuckBoothSport)

As much as I want to consider other options, I can't look past Salah, who's in the form of his life. He's my captain this week, although I'd love to consider Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) in a world where Salah doesn't exist.

Holly Shand (@HollyShand)

My vice-captain this week will be Son Heung-min (£10.2m). It's a great time to be facing Manchester United, who've conceded nine goals in their last two league matches. He would be a worthy stand-in if my permanent captain pick Salah somehow misses out.

There’s no reason not to captain Salah but if you want to go against the grain, an in-form Foden could be worth a punt against Palace.

Tom Cantle (@WGTA_FPL)

We need to retire this for the foreseeable future. Leave it on Salah and worry about the rest of your team.
