Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5 captains round-up

This Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5 captains round-up is here to help you select a skipper and handy vice-captain.

Recommended captain picks for this Gameweek include players from Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

1⃣ Sergio Agüero MCI, FWD

He may have failed to score at home to Newcastle last time out, but if anything that makes him even more likely to score at home to Fulham after the international break.

The Cottagers have been leaky, so it could be a profitable day for this old fantasy football favourite.

2⃣ Hazard/Alonso CHE, MID/DEF

While Eden Hazard looks like the go-to guy at home to newly promoted Cardiff, Marcos Alonso is the FPL’s top-scoring player so far for a reason.

With hauls of 11, 13, 11 and 9 points from his first four games, Alonso is as strong a candidate for captaincy as we’ve seen from a defender in a long time.

3⃣ Kane/Salah TOT/LIV, FWD/MID

Tottenham v Liverpool is a tough one to call, and with neither Harry Kane nor Mohamed Salah setting the world alight so far it’s probably best to avoid both.

The same goes for Lucas Moura and Sadio Mané, despite their more impressive form.
