Morata and Hazard pose FPL captaincy dilemma

The Scout says choosing between the two Chelsea stars for Gameweek 14 is the toughest decision yet, so who should managers back?

Choosing between Alvaro Morata (£10.6m) and Eden Hazard (£10.7m) for Gameweek 14 is one of the toughest captaincy decisions Fantasy Premier League managers will face this season.

The Chelsea pair take outstanding form into their home meeting with Swansea City.

Morata has two goals and two assists in his last four matches and has been acquired by more than 285,000 managers ahead of tonight's 18:45 GMT deadline.

He has also produced double-figure scores twice at Stamford Bridge.

On the other hand, Hazard has returned 40 points over the last four Gameweeks to earn 125,000 new owners this week.

Last season, the Belgian scored 12 of his 16 goals at home - more than any midfielder - and is likely to be on penalties.

Kane repeat?

One of Harry Kane (£12.8m) or Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) has been the most popular captaincy pick in each of the first 13 Gameweeks.

But this supremacy will surely be challenged by the Chelsea pair.

Kane travels to Leicester City after his ninth goal of the season against West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 13.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker has scored braces in three away matches, with the most shots on target (11) of any player on the road.

He will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s fixture, when he scored four goals and got an assist at King Power Stadium.

Lukaku losses

With only one goal in the past six Gameweeks, Lukaku has suffered the most sales (268,000+) ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Watford.

Only Crystal Palace and Everton (both 12) have conceded more than the 11 Watford have let in at Vicarage Road.

But Marco Silva’s switch to a three-man defence has delivered back-to-back clean sheets going into tonight's match.

Salah advantage

Mohamed Salah (£9.7m) goes to Stoke City as the top-scoring player in FPL after his 10th goal of the season against Chelsea in Gameweek 13.

The Liverpool midfielder boasts the most shots (18) and most shots on target (10) in the last four Gameweeks and will face a Stoke defence who have conceded 26 goals, a figure exceeded only by Everton (28) .

The differentials

A home meeting with Huddersfield Town promotes Alexis Sanchez (£11.8m) as a differential for captain.

Part of a mere 2.8% of squads, the Arsenal midfielder has three goals in his last five Gameweek appearances and faces a Huddersfield side who have conceded nine times in their past three away fixtures and are without a goal on the road since Gameweek 1.

That away record could even allow Sead Kolasinac (£6.1m) to profit. The defender has averaged 8.0 points per match (ppm) at home.

Sane security

And despite concerns of rotation in the Manchester City attack, Leroy Sane (£9.0m) remains a strong armband candidate for the visit of Southampton.

The German has started each of the past eight Gameweeks and has produced 10+ points in four of his last five home appearances.
