More than 1.2million managers trusted the in-form Leicester City forward with the armband at Brighton & Hove Albion after eight goals in his last six appearances and he rewarded them with a goal and an assist for 12 points in the 2-0 win.

For once, the top 100 FPL managers were in complete agreement with the six million others and the same three players are favoured for the captaincy.
Leicester's impressive form this season meant two of their players are the most popular transfers in this Gameweek.
Over 553,000 managers drafted in Vardy, with his team-mate James Maddison (£7.5m) gaining 394,000 new owners.
Four of Leicester's next five fixtures are rated at just two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings.

Teemu Pukki (£6.7m) again was in the top three of most transferred-out players. Over 351,000 parted company with the Norwich City striker, who provided his first return since Gameweek 5 with an assist in the 2-0 win at Everton.
Fitness concerns over Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Ederson (£6.0m) contributed to that pair being the second and third most transferred-out players this Gameweek. Ederson started for Man City while Salah remained an unused substitute.
