Anthony Martial (£8.3m) produced his third successive double-figure haul at Old Trafford in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Southampton.

The Frenchman supplied the assist for Marcus Rashford’s (£9.0m) goal before scoring the second, earning a 13-point return.

Martial has now found the net in each of his last five outings at Old Trafford, totalling 64 points.

Fernandes assist

Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes (£9.0m) had to settle for just an assist against the Saints.

The Portuguese was the second-top captain pick for Gameweek 35+, having produced three successive double-digit returns.

However, it was a disappointing evening for Mason Greenwood (£4.9m), the most-bought player in the Gameweek.

The teenage striker earned over 433,000 transfers in but recorded his first blank in four matches.

Defensive knocks

In defence, Man United have worries at left-back for their visit to Crystal Palace. Luke Shaw (£5.4m) was forced off with a knock, while his replacement, Brandon Williams (£3.9m), sustained a head injury.

For Southampton, Stuart Armstrong’s (£5.2m) opener took his tally to three goals and two assists in his last five starts.

And the remaining schedule suggests he can continue to offer excellent value.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side face Brighton & Hove Albion, AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United in the final three Gameweeks. 

Top scorer: Anthony Martial 13pts (TSB 20.2% £8.3m)
Bonus points: Anthony Martial 3pts, Jan Bednarek 2pts, Marcus Rashford 1pt, Stuart Armstrong 1pt.
