Sheffield United's 11th clean sheet of the season helped Dean Henderson (£5.3m) to the top of the FPL goalkeeper standings on 133 points.

The 23-year-old claimed 11 points at Aston Villa, overtaking Burnley No 1 Nick Pope (£4.9m) in the rankings.

But Henderson's 20.1 per cent FPL ownership should be aware the on-loan star is unavailable to face Manchester United in Gameweek 31+, as he cannot play against his parent club.

An injury to Jack O'Connell (£4.7m) handed Jack Robinson (£4.0m) his first start in the Blades defence.

Found in less than 1.0 per cent of squads, Robinson could be a cut-price differential for the run-in if O'Connell remains out.

Jack Grealish (£6.4m), the most-bought player for Gameweek 30+, endured a frustrating evening.

Transferred in by 646,000+ managers, Grealish has only one assist in Villa's last six matches. His 26.5 per cent ownership will hope he can make amends at home to Chelsea on Sunday.

Villa and Sheff Utd took advantage of the temporary five-substitute rule, making four and three changes respectively.

Notably, all three centre-forwards who started were taken off, suggesting both sides could make changes in attack in the second matches of their Double Gameweek.

Top scorer: Dean Henderson 11pts (TSB 20.1%, £5.3m)
Bonus points: Dean Henderson 3pts; Jack Robinson 2pts; Tyrone Mings 1pt.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) climbed to the top of the FPL scoring charts with a 14-point haul against Arsenal.

The most popular armband pick in Gameweek 30+, Manchester City's playmaker was captained by 1.2million managers and earned his 19th FPL assist as well as his ninth goal of the season via the penalty spot.

Six of De Bruyne's eight double-figure hauls have come at home in 2019/20 and City next host Burnley in the second match of this Double Gameweek.

Sergio Aguero's (£11.8m) 23.8 per cent of owners were left hugely disappointed after he was a late substitute, but the Argentinian managed to earn an assist for Phil Foden's (£5.1m) goal.

Aguero is now expected to start on Monday.

The same may not be said for Raheem Sterling (£11.7m), who scored the opener.

Pep Guardiola made five substitutions, yet kept Sterling on for the full 90 minutes.

Cut-price duo Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m) and Bukayo Saka (£4.7m) both started for Arsenal but it was Bernd Leno (£5.0m) who stood out, making nine saves and claiming five FPL points.

Top scorer: Kevin De Bruyne 14pts (TSB 50.7%, £10.6m)
Bonus points: Kevin De Bruyne 3pts, Raheem Sterling 2pts, Benjamin Mendy 1pt, Bernd Leno 1pt.

Next three Gameweeks

Arsenal: SOU (A) NOR (H) WOL (A)
