Salah was the No 1 captain pick for the 11th time this season, a record for 2019/20, but the 1.1m owners who did so will be frustrated as he hit the post early on and could only claim two points in his side's 4-0 defeat.
More than 823,000 FPL managers trusted him with the armband against Norwich City and he fully repaid that faith on Wednesday, registering two goals and an assist in a 4-0 win.
He also secured the maximum bonus, delivering a huge total of 32 points with the armband.
Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) was backed by 686,000 managers for the captaincy and he delivered, with a goal and an assist handing him 14 points.

Aubameyang was also the second-most popular choice among FPL's top 100 managers.
The new owners of Rashford and Anthony Martial (£8.2m) were left frustrated on Tuesday as the Manchester United pair failed to produce attacking returns despite helping the Red Devils to a 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Martial racked up a season-high 21 points in his previous Premier League outing against Sheffield United, while Rashford collected nine points thanks to two assists.
As a result, the pair were the most-bought players for Gameweek 32+.
It is the 15th time the most popular Gameweek signing has blanked this season.

And the 226,000+ who parted company with the Villa captain will be feeling vindicated in their decision after he blanked for the sixth time in a row in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves.
Meanwhile, more than 175,000 managers lost patience with Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) and moved him on before the Gameweek 32+ deadline.
