For the 10th time this season the Egyptian was the No 1 captain pick, and he produced a goal and an assist against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, delivering a 22-point return with the armband.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) carried the hopes of over 609,000 FPL managers who handed him the armband against Southampton, but a fourth consecutive blank has led to over 70,000 managers parting company with the Arsenal forward.

On the other hand, Jimenez scored the decisive goal in Wolverhampton Wanderers' 1-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth and was rewarded with the maximum bonus, racking up 18 points with the captain's armband.
Jimenez also delighted a raft of new owners, having been the No 1 target for managers in the lead-up to Gameweek 31+.
Meanwhile, a combined 463,000+ opted to add either Fernandes or Marcus Rashford (£9.0m) to their FPL squads. The England international provided two assists against Sheff Utd to pick up nine points.

Aubameyang's performance in Double Gameweek 30+ divided FPL managers.
The third most-popular captain pick was also the second most-sold player ahead of the midweek round of fixtures.
Only the injured Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) was shifted in greater numbers than the Arsenal forward prior to the GW31+ deadline.
A red flag for Dean Henderson (£5.2m) contributed to his appearance in the top three transfers out. The Blades goalkeeper was ineligible to face his parent club Man Utd.
