The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts give their thoughts on who to captain in Gameweek 33.

With Arsenal's current defensive issues, Manchester City will go all out for the win that they need. Therefore, I will be backing Erling Haaland (£12.3m) for the captaincy.

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) is on something of a scoring spree with eight goals in his last eight Premier League matches. I am looking to give him the armband to against a West Ham United team near the foot of the table.

Haaland looks like he will get the better of Rob Holding (£4.2m) on Wednesday evening. So I'll be captaining the Norwegian again, despite some temptation to take a chance on my Wildcard recruit Kevin De Bruyne (£12.1m), who is a great option as an alternative to the Man City striker.

It's hard to back against Haaland at the moment, especially with Arsenal's frailties at the back. But if I was looking elsewhere, I'd be tempted by the Liverpool attack who play a West Ham team on their third fixture in six days. Diogo Jota (£8.8m) and Salah could be excellent options.

If you want to avoid Haaland for the armband, Ollie Watkins (£7.7m) at home to Fulham and the Brighton & Hove Albion midfielders are the standout picks.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Solly March (£5.2m) as one of the highest-scoring players in the Gameweek as Brighton look to bounce back from their semi-final FA Cup defeat.

Haaland at home is always a good captaincy pick but if you're looking to go different, Watkins is a great shout. He's still top among forwards for big chances and shots in the box over the last six Gameweeks.
