The 612,000 Fantasy Premier League managers who chose Harry Kane (£12.4m) as their captain over the hot favourite Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) were rewarded as the Tottenham Hotspur forward outscored Liverpool's star in Double Gameweek 29.
While the Egyptian was introduced as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 win at Emirates Stadium, he blanked and added just a single point to his tally, totalling 10 points across his two outings.
As a result, he eclipsed Salah's total with 14 points, an eight-point swing with the captaincy.

Kane still fell short of the haul achieved by Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.2m), the second-most captained player, who needed only one fixture in Gameweek 29 to score three goals and rack up 17 points.
The Man Utd star has now amassed 1,201 points in FPL over his career, scoring 96 goals, supplying 46 assists and netting two hat-tricks.
DGW29 chips used
The Double Gameweek prompted 421,000+ managers to use their Triple Captain chip, with most opting for Salah or Kane.
Following the success of Triple-Captaining Salah in DGW26, when he earned 28 points, more than 330,000 managers backed him to deliver again. But they got a much lower total than those who used the chip on the Egyptian last month.
Kane was favoured by over 55,000 managers and delivered double figures.

The tremendous form of Bukayo Saka (£6.6m) made him the No 1 transfer target ahead of the deadline. But the midfielder blanked in both of his matches against Leicester City and Liverpool.
Dejan Kulusevski (£6.2m) and Matt Doherty (£4.8m) completed the top three. The Spurs duo had a combined four double-digit hauls across their six starts over the previous three Gameweeks, prompting 1.35m transfers in.
Kulusevski rewarded new owners with an assist in each of his Double Gameweek 29 appearances, totalling 11 points, while Doherty earned a clean sheet at Brighton.

For the second successive Gameweek, Jarrod Bowen (£6.8m), Joao Cancelo (£6.9m) and Ruben Dias (£6.2m) were the three most-sold players.
Injuries ruled out Bowen and Dias, but those who turned their backs on Cancelo missed out on nine points as the full-back recovered from illness to keep a clean sheet in Manchester City's goalless draw at Crystal Palace.
