Some of the world's best Fantasy managers reveal their plans for the armband

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

This could be a good week to back against Erling Haaland (£12.4m) because even if he starts, his minutes may well be managed.

Mohamed Salah (£13.1m), Bruno Fernandes (£9.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£7.2m) are great alternatives with good fixtures.

Gameweek 38 is one where I am happier to take a captaincy risk. With doubts over Haaland's minutes ahead of the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup finals, I will likely hand my armband elsewhere.

Harry Kane (£11.5m) has returned in all of his last six matches for Tottenham Hotspur and he faces a Leeds United side who will likely deploy a high line in their quest for the victory they need to have any chance of securing Premier League safety. A high line is something Kane and Son Heung-min (£11.5m) are experts in breaking down. With penalties too and a being bonus point magnet, Kane will likely be my pick.

Haaland and Salah will be the most captained as always, but defenders have done well in the past in Gameweek 38. Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) could be an excellent alternative pick against bottom side Southampton.

Eberechi Eze (£5.7m) has been on fire since Roy Hodgson took charge. I think he's a great captain option against a Nottingham Forest side that have struggled on the road this season and are already safe following their 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend.

Knowing many will back Haaland and Salah, if you wanted to go against them I would consider their team-mates in the same matches.

Kevin De Bruyne (£12.1m) and Cody Gakpo (£7.6m), for example, could be fun differentials if you're chasing.

I expect Liverpool to finish strongly in Gameweek 38. Southampton concede the majority of their chances down their right-hand side, so Luis Diaz (£7.8m) on Liverpool's left flank could be a great differential captain.
