Who is the best captain pick for Gameweek 38?

Captain armband Premier League 2020-21Getty Images

There are a number of very tempting captain pick options going into Gameweek 38.

Mohamed Salah has been in incredible form lately and is looking to finish the season as the league's top scorer. Harry Kane, however, is also chasing the Golden Boot and has been directly involved in more goals than any other player in the division.

Meanwhile, Patrick Bamford has scored 16 times this season and is coming up against the weakest defence in the league - West Brom.

But we're giving the armband to Salah again this week, as the Egypt international and Liverpool have the added motivation of fighting for a top-four finish on the final day of the campaign.
