Picking a captain for the penultimate double gameweek of the season could be a challenge, with the pool of fully fit options dwindling in recent days.

Mohamed Salah has worried FPL owners with two quiet displays recently, while Erling Haaland was totally absent from Manchester City's thumping win over Brighton on Thursday night. So who should we be considering for the armband?

With the help of Fantasy Football Hub's powerful AI Points Predictions tool, here are the best captain choices for FPL Gameweek 35.

Son Heung-min

  • Fixtures: Arsenal (H), Chelsea (A); Predicted Points: 11.5

Son Heung-min leads the captaincy race for FPL Gameweek 35 and his high upside remains, playing out of position as Tottenham's central striker. Spurs come into this double well rested, unlike their opponents who have had busy midweeks.

Son has one goal and one assist in four appearances since the international break, which is a little inconsistent compared to his high standards, with 24 goal involvements from 28 starts this campaign. He scored a brace in the reverse fixture against Arsenal back in Gameweek 6.

Cole Palmer

  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (A), Tottenham (H); Predicted Points: 9.2

Chelsea talisman Cole Palmer showed he is only human by missing the defeat to Arsenal in midweek through illness. That sees his prediction fall behind Son due to question marks over his minutes, with Mauricio Pochettino's press conference significant.

That being said, Palmer is still a formidable force in the game and remains on course to be the best performing fantasy asset of the season, despite not becoming a Chelsea regular until Gameweek 7. He has four double-digit hauls in his last five appearances.

Mohamed Salah

  • Fixture: West Ham (A); Predicted Points: 7.2

Liverpool have been on a disastrous run since the international break, dropping eight points in their last four league games to dent their ambitions of a second Premier League title in Jurgen Klopp's final season. Despite this, AI predictions hold firm on Mohamed Salah's potential score this gameweek.

Salah has scored just two goals since the international break but his underlying numbers remain sensational. He sits top for shots in this time with 30 and second for big chances with seven. He scored in the reverse fixture against West Ham to net ten points.
