Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) again justified his record popularity as captain by delivering returns as a record 4.8million Fantasy Premier League managers handed him the armband for Gameweek 13.

The Egyptian is the captain in more than 57 per cent of all teams, beating the previous high of 4.6m, a mark he set in Gameweek 10.

Salah has blanked just once this season and continued that form with an assist in Liverpool's convincing 4-0 win over Southampton.

Salah 4,882 6
Ronaldo 757 0
Fernandes 371 1

For the fourth successive Gameweek, Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) completed the top three.

But it was a frustrating afternoon for owners of Ronaldo, who came on in the second half after starting on the bench for Manchester United's 1-1 draw at leaders Chelsea, while fellow Portuguese Fernandes was substituted late on.

Salah 98 6
Alexander-Arnold 2 9

Salah gained near-unanimous backing from the top 100 Fantasy managers, with 98 of this elite group handing him the armband.

Team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.9m) was favoured by the other two.

The full-back produced his seventh assist of the season to earn nine points, outscoring Salah for the third time in four Gameweeks.

James 829 1

Alexander-Arnold 548 9

Alexander-Arnold was also among the top three transfer targets as managers looked to replace the injured Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) in their squads.

The most-popular choice, however, was Reece James (£6.2m), who gained more than 829,000 new owners.

But the in-form Chelsea full-back only picked up one point in the Stamford Bridge stalemate.

Conor Gallagher (£6.1m) was the second-top pick but the Crystal Palace midfielder blanked for the first time in four matches in the 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa.

Benrahma 300 1

With Chilwell set to miss at least six weeks following his ACL injury in midweek, more than 847,000 managers wasted no time in parting company with the Chelsea defender.

The recent disappointing form of West Ham United duo Michail Antonio (£8.1m) and Said Benrahma (£6.3m) continued at Manchester City on Sunday.

The pair, who were shipped out by a combined 711,000+ managers ahead of the Etihad Stadium defeat, have now produced only one goal and one assist between them over their last seven matches.
