Erling Haaland may have returned to scoring in midweek, but he’s not winning the favor of the FPL Gameweek 10 captaincy.
The Norwegian faces a tough trip to Manchester City’s Old Trafford this weekend and with a host of other assets performing well, should managers consider other top picks to captain them?
We’ve selected the top captain picks for FPL Gameweek 10 as determined by Fantasy Football Hub’s powerful AI Points Predictions tool.

Erling Haaland has struggled to live up to his incredibly high standards in recent FPL games, with just two goals in his last four games and just five shots on target in that time, but AI puts it down to difference and still picks him as top captain picks for FPL matchweek 10.
Haaland remains the top scorer in the Premier League this season, scoring nine at an 8.11 xG rate, and leads the way for big chances (15). He is City’s penalty taker and has done well in this game before, with three goals and two assists in two games.

AI ranks Mohamed Salah as the second best captain choice for FPL Gameweek 10, but in reality he is likely to be the most captained player among active managers after leading the way with 75 points this season. With four double-digit shots in his last five games, he also leads the team in shots on goal, with 15 over the last four game weeks.
A home game against Nottingham Forest certainly helps his cause, having scored in every league game at Anfield this season. Forest have struggled away from home this season, conceding two at Arsenal and Manchester City and three at Manchester United.

Ollie Watkins also provides a vital captain option for FPL this weekend after registering a league-leading 48 FPL points in the last four gameweeks. He’s a fearsome force when he’s on fire, with ten tackles in five games. He is also tops for shots in the box during that time.
The comforts of home should suit him, having produced attacking results in every game at Villa Park this season. He has double figures in his last two home games, scoring 23 points against Brighton and 11 points against West Ham. Opponents Luton Town are still looking for their first goal of the season.
