For the seventh time this season the leading choice for the captain's armband in Fantasy Premier League failed to reward backers as Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) returned only one FPL point.

The Manchester City midfielder started against Southampton captained by 1.5million managers, but they were left disappointed by the winger, who was also booked, in the 2-1 victory. 

It was a similar story for the third-most picked player for the armband, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m), who managed only two points.

The 884,000 who placed their faith in Sergio Aguero (£12.1m), the second-most popular choice for the armband, fared better as the Argentinian started for the first time in three Gameweeks and scored his ninth goal of the season.

Sadio Mane (£11.9m) left it late to reward those majority among the top 100 FPL managers who preferred him to Aguero.

Mane struck a stoppage-time winner after assisting Andrew Robertson's 86th-minute equaliser for a nine-point return and is set for full bonus points to become the leading FPL points scorer this season.

The leader Mane is set to replace, Jamie Vardy (£9.3m), was the most popular transfer in ahead of the Gameweek 11 deadline. Vardy scored a hat-trick and provided an assist in Leicester's record win at Saints last week.

However Sunday opponents Crystal Palace, are likely to provide a stiffer test. The Eagles have kept three clean sheets at home this season and conceded only three goals.

Three forwards were the most transferred-out players. 

Teemu Pukki (£6.9m) was sold by more than 379,000 FPL managers after five blanks in a row, and their decision was justified as the Finn again failed to record a goal involvement.

Aguero was also the second most-sold player but the almost 300,000 managers who sold him after his two-Gameweek starting absence will be kicking themselves.
