Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) remained popular after his season-high 24-point haul in Gameweek 19. More than 246,000 people added the 21-year-old defender to their squads.

An ankle injury for John Lundstram (£5.2m) prompted just under 200,000 FPL managers to part company with the Sheffield United star, making him the most-sold player this Gameweek.
It was similar for the 160,000+ managers who lost patience with James Maddison (£7.7m), making him the third most-sold player for Gameweek 21, after no attacking returns in his previous four matches. The Leicester midfielder delivered a goal and a clean sheet in the 3-0 win at Newcastle.
