Son Heung-min (£9.0m) made nearly 1.4million Fantasy Premier League managers regret selling him for Gameweek 4 as he overcame an injury to score twice and claim an assist.
The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, who was withdrawn at half-time with a hamstring injury against Newcastle United in Gameweek 3, recovered enough to start and play a starring role in their 6-1 victory at Manchester United.
He was the most popular transfer out in GW4 and clocked up his second big haul of the season after scoring four times on his way to 24 points at Southampton in Gameweek 2.
The second-most popular player to sell was Timo Werner (£9.4m).
Sadio Mane (£11.9m) was sold by more than 346,000 after Liverpool announced on Friday evening the player had tested positive for COVID-19.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.9m) completed the top three most-captained players but his backers were left disappointed after he managed only two points in Arsenal's 2-1 home win over Sheffield United.
For the second successive Gameweek, nearly a million managers transferred in Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m).
Team-mate James Rodriguez (£7.8m) was the second-most bought player and rewarded his new owners with two goals and an assist.
More than 442,000 managers added Timothy Castagne (£5.7m) to their squads.
The Leicester City full-back entered the Gameweek as the top-scoring defender, courtesy of three assists, one goal and one clean sheet, but could only manage one point in a 3-0 home defeat to West Ham United.
