Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 8 captains round-up

This Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 8 captains round-up is here to help you select a skipper and handy vice-captain.

Recommended captain picks for this Gameweek include players from Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and Leeds United.

1⃣ Kane/Son TOT, FWD/MID

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min weren’t as explosive at home to Brighton as many captainers hoped, but it’s still hard to look past them away to West Brom.

Especially with Tottenham looking so strong on the road, with three wins from three and twelve goals scored.

2⃣ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ARS, MID

Scored the winning penalty at Man Utd and has a good chance to get some momentum going at home to an Aston Villa side that’s conceded seven goals in two matches.

3⃣ De Bruyne/Sterling MCI, MID/MID

Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling both scored as Man City beat Liverpool 4-0 towards the end of last season, and it’s the repeat fixture on Sunday.

They might however find goals harder to come by without a fit centre-forward to play off, as shown by their recent low-scoring form.

4⃣ Fernandes/Rashford MUN, MID/MID

Man Utd have been looking much better away from Old Trafford, so Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford look good for returns at Everton.

5⃣ Patrick Bamford LEI, FWD

He’d certainly be a punt, but he goes to Crystal Palace off the back of five goals in three away games in the Premier League.
