More than four million managers who captained Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) in Fantasy Premier League were delighted to see the Egyptian end a mini goal-drought in Gameweek 12.
Salah was the most-captained player in the game for the ninth Gameweek this season and the 67th time in his FPL career.
For the third successive Gameweek the same three players were the most-captained, with Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.7m) behind Salah.
Fernandes, however, blanked for the seventh time this season. Last season's top-scoring player in FPL has 29 points fewer than he did at the same stage of the 2020/21 campaign.

Among the leading 100 managers, Harry Kane (£12.2m) and Son Heung-min (£10.4m) replaced the Man Utd duo as the differential captain picks.
The most-bought player ahead of Gameweek 12 rewarded his 891,000+ new FPL owners with his fourth attacking return in three appearances.
And the decision of more than 499,000 managers to sign Reece James (£6.1m) resulted in instant rewards.
James has now returned a remarkable 53 points across his last four appearances, registering three goals and two assists.

And those managers would have been cheering as the Portuguese produced a sublime assist for the opening goal, also banking a clean sheet and three bonus points for a 12-point haul.
Jamie Vardy (£10.6m) was the most-sold player for Gameweek 12, dumped by 418,000+ Fantasy bosses who will be feeling vindicated after the Leicester City forward recorded his fourth successive blank.
A calf injury meant Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) was shipped out by more than 263,000 managers, while a one-match suspension led to 359,000+ parting company with goalkeeper Robert Sanchez (£4.6m), who missed Brighton & Hove Albion's 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.
