Gameweek 36 captain

Erling Haaland enjoyed a goal-rich return to the Premier League in Man City’s 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest’s City Ground, with the Norwegian sealing a nail-biting victory for Guardiola’s side.

And the former Molde frontman impressed in his 34-minute cameo. His two shots came from inside the penalty area and deflected the Forest goalkeeper, with Haaland scoring.

A slip-through ball over Kevin De Bruyne (£10.5m) left Haaland free to run over the shoulder of the last defender before firing across goal into the bottom corner.

The Man City marksman is backed by just over four in ten of our users to continue his goalscoring form when Wolves visit the Etihad Stadium for Saturday night’s kick-off.

Bukayo Saka (£9.0m) comes in third with 8.93% of the vote Alexander Isaac (£8.3m) narrowly behind him.

Kai Havertz (£7.5 million), Phil Foden (£8.4 million) and Cole Palmer (£6.2 million). they all receive more than 7% of the vote in a tight race for second place.
