GW11 FPL stats: Top captain Salah delivers again

Liverpool midfielder gets assist as 4.5m managers who captain the in-form Egyptian benefit

Fantasy Premier League managers continue to be rewarded for their trust in Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), as Gameweek 11's most-captained player produced attacking returns yet again.

The Liverpool star provided the assist for a brilliant free-kick goal by Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m), but he could have had more as he fired over from close range in a 3-2 defeat at West Ham United.

More than 4.5million FPL bosses gave Salah the captain's armband in Gameweek 11.

Owned by over 6.1m managers, with 71.4 per cent ownership, Salah has now produced attacking returns in 10 of the 11 Gameweeks so far this season.

Manchester United pair Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.7m) completed the top three captain choices for the second successive Gameweek.

Managers who entrusted the Portuguese pair with the armband for their home derby against Manchester City were, however, left disappointed as both blanked in the 2-0 defeat.

Salah was the overwhelming favourite among the top 100 managers, being backed by 95 of this elite group.

Ivan Toney (£6.7m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.1m) tied for second as both had appealing home fixtures.

But Brentford lost 2-1 to Norwich City and Toney's lack of returns were compounded by a yellow card.

There was even more frustration for those who plumped for Aubameyang.

He missed a first-half penalty and was also booked to finish with a score of -1.

Reece James (£5.9m) was the No 1 transfer target in FPL ahead of Friday's deadline and the Chelsea full-back repaid that faith with an assist at home to Burnley on Saturday. 

But while his Fantasy managers would have bemoaned the late equaliser for Burnley at Stamford Bridge that earned the Clarets a draw and denied James clean-sheet points, they would be cheered by the fact he earned three bonus points to return seven in total.    

Budget midfielders Emile Smith Rowe (£5.7m) and Conor Gallagher (£5.8m) were the next most-popular choices, gaining a combined 1.1m+ new owners.

Both players justified that investment as they continued their goalscoring form.

Smith Rowe scored the only goal as Arsenal beat Watford 1-0, netting for the third match in a row.

Meanwhile, Gallagher delivered again for Crystal Palace and his managers with a goal and 11 points in the 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers

Danny Ings (£7.8m) missed Aston Villa's match against Southampton on Friday due to injury and was shipped out by more than 326,000 Fantasy bosses.

Chelsea's Marcos Alonso (£5.6m) is also in the treatment room after picking up an ankle knock in midweek, leading to sales in excess of 314,000. 

News that Mason Mount (£7.5m) is available again didn't stop 274,000+ parting company with the midfielder.
