The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts give their thoughts on who to captain in Gameweek 30.

With Pep Guardiola declaring Erling Haaland (£12.0m) fit, he's the go-to captain again, even if he only gets 60-70 minutes. 

I also like Harry Kane (£11.7m) at home to Brighton & Hove Albion, Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) against Everton and Ollie Watkins (£7.5m) versus Nottingham Forest

If Haaland isn't given the armband this week by FPL managers as a result of concern over his minutes, Watkins, Rashford and Kane are all great alternatives.

With Haaland fit, I'll be bringing him back in and handing him the armband.

Rashford and Watkins are both excellent picks this week. Rashford has 12 goals at home and is top among midfielders for shots, big chances and shots on target in home matches.

Watkins is top among forwards for goals (five), big chances (10) and shots on target (15) over the last six matches, while no team has conceded more goals than Forest's 14 over that period.

I'm keeping it simple. Haaland against bottom side Southampton needs to captained.

Regrettably, I don't own Watkins, but there is a strong case to consider him for the armband.

Forest are terrible on the road, Aston Villa are flying high and Watkins is in the best goalscoring run of his career.

I don't own Haaland and don't have the funds to bring him back in easily. So, Rashford and Watkins, both with home fixtures, are decent alternatives.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

With Haaland available, he will have my armband. 

If you don't own the Manchester City forward, Jack Grealish (£6.9m) looks certain to start against Southampton and his 12-point haul in Gameweek 29 could easily be bettered this weekend.
