The Egyptian supplied an assist and picked up a clean-sheet point on the final day, but it could have been much more. Sala's six shots inside the penalty area were the most in Gameweek 38.
It was the 12th time this season Salah had been the top captain pick, extending his record of being the most-popular armband choice for a third successive campaign.
Salah was made captain of a total of 41,593,228 teams selected throughout the 38 Gameweeks, also a season high.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and Harry Kane (£11.9m) completed the top three captains.
More than 1.1m managers were left disappointed when Fernandes was left out of the Manchester United squad for their trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers, the first match the Portuguese has missed this season.
The Spurs forward added an assist and a bonus point to his 23rd goal of the campaign as he collected the Premier League Golden Boot for a third time and also claimed the Playmaker of the Season award.
Sadio Mane (£11.8m) proved an inspired captain choice for six managers in top 100, scoring twice and picking up maximum bonus for a 16-point haul.
Roberto Firmino (£9.1m) and Patrick Bamford (£6.6m) also justified their selection in the leading 100 managers' top three.

Bamford was the top transfer target for managers going into the last round of matches, with 315,000 selecting the forward, ahead of 271,000 for Salah.
Third-placed Joe Willock (£4.9m) vindicated the decision of 198,000+ FPL bosses by scoring for the seventh successive match.

More than 339,000 people who sold Fernandes felt vindicated by his absence, but the Man Utd star ended the season as the most-selected player, sitting in more than four million teams.
The third-most sold player, Joao Cancelo (£5.8m), played no part in the match after his sending-off in Gameweek 37.
