Fantasy Premier League tips: Who should I captain in GW8 – Kane, Son, Vardy?

There was a surprise player at the top of the FPL charts in Gameweek 7 as Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse picked up a 17-point haul. He scored two goals and registered an assist against Aston Villa and has been added to over 219,000 teams ahead of Gameweek 8.

Many of the popular captain choices underwhelmed in GW7 but could they bounce back this weekend?

Express Sport takes a look the top captaincy picks and differential options ahead of the early deadline of 4pm GMT on Friday (November 6).

Fantasy Premier League captain tips

Harry Kane (TOT) vs West Brom

Kane (£11.0m) was the most-captained player last weekend and there could be a repeat of that in GW8.

The England striker has been in sparkling form, with six goals in seven games and will be confident of scoring against a struggling West Brom side.

With an impressive eight assists to his name already, no player has earned more FPL points this season.

Heung-Min Son (TOT) vs West Brom

Several of the aforementioned assists have benefitted Son, who is the league’s joint-top scorer with eight goals.

He blanked against Brighton last time out but he could easily set that right against the Baggies, who are yet to win the season and have conceded 16 goals.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) vs Wolves

Vardy (£10.0m) fired himself back into contention with a goal and two assists against Leeds last time out.

He missed GW5 through injury and played just 30 minutes the following week but his blistering best again in GW7.

Wolves is a tough fixture on paper but one thing we know about FPL is not to bet against the Leicester striker.

Fantasy Premier League differential captains

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) vs Man Utd

Everton may have lost 2-1 at Newcastle last week but that didn’t stop Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) getting his eighth goal of the season.

United have looked unconvincing at the back this season and James Rodriguez’s potential return from injury will be a massive boost for the Toffees.

Calvert-Lewin was also on the scoresheet against the Red Devils last season.

Jack Grealish (AVL) vs Arsenal

Grealish (£7.4m) pulled in a 15-point last week despite losing to Southampton.

After two blank gameweeks, the Villa man got himself on the scoresheet and provided two assists against the Saints.

And while Arsenal presents a tough fixture, Grealish’s overall tally of 54 points is behind only Kane, Son, Vardy and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
