Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes comes up against Watford at Old Trafford in GW27, making him a prime captaincy option.

The Portuguese playmaker has racked up 22 points over the past two gameweks. You may also want to go for Jadon Sancho (£8.9m) instead, though this seems a riskier play.

Harry Kane (£12.2m)

Given the form that England captain Harry Kane showed in the last match against Manchester City, he is a real option for the armband in GW27.

Kane scored two goals and secured maximum bonus points as Antonio Conte's Tottenham finally looked like they were coming together.

Heung-Min Son (£10.7m)

World-class winger Heung-Min Son looked great in GW26 as he picked up two assists and two bonus points against Manchester City.

Son faces a Leeds side that consistently hands opposition attackers a lot of chances, especially on the left side of the attack where Son will be operating.

Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m)

Our next option is Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City with has an away fixture against Everton in GW27, who have been particularly poor in recent weeks.

Mahrez is also on penalty duty and other set pieces, depending on whether teammate Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) is on the pitch, so provides real potential for GW27.

Wout Weghorst (£6.5m)

The striker has looked fantastic since joining the club, having picked up a goal and an assist already in GW26, with a match still to play.

How do captains work in FPL?

Your FPL captain gets his points doubled for that particular Gameweek.

That means you should always pick the player on your team who you think will score the highest number of points.

If your captain fails to start the game but gets substituted at any point, the points he scores during his time on the pitch will be doubled.

If your captain does not feature at all in the particular Gameweek, your vice-captain will have his points doubled instead, so it is important to select your vice-captain wisely too.
