The leading Fantasy Premier League managers backed Harry Kane (£12.6m) and Son Heung-min (£11.0m) with the captain's armband in Gameweek 32, and the Tottenham Hotspur duo delivered in style.

A combined 82 of the top 100 put their faith in Kane and Son. The England striker produced three Fantasy assists but the South Korean was the star performer with a hat-trick in the 4-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.

No-one had amassed more Fantasy points over the previous 10 Gameweeks, with Kane returning 76 points to Son's 69 prior to two more double-figure hauls for the in-form Spurs pair.

Kane 58 10
Son 24 21
Fernandes 5 2

Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m) was the third most-popular pick among the game's elite managers.

But he was unable to extend his impressive record against Everton, blanking in a 1-0 defeat for Manchester United at Goodison Park.

Salah 2,751 5

Ronaldo 746 1

Kane was the second most-captained player overall, behind only Mohamed Salah (£13.2m).

More than 2.7million sided with the Egyptian for Liverpool's top-of-the-table showdown at Manchester City, and although he produced an assist in the memorable 2-2 draw, his five points were bettered by Kane and Son.

Despite averaging just under eight points per match over his last five outings against Pep Guardiola's side, the Reds star was among the three most-sold players ahead of the Gameweek 32 deadline, with 209,000+ owners opting to cash in ahead of his difficult fixture.

Managers were quick to sell Arsenal's Kieran Tierney (£5.0m), who is set to miss the rest of the season due to injury.

Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho (£7.2m) was among the three most transferred-out players for the second successive Gameweek.

The Brazilian has not scored since Gameweek 28 and blanked again against Spurs.

Bowen 302 2
Maddison 298 6
Doherty 207 1

More than 302,000 managers brought in Jarrod Bowen (£6.9m) after he produced a double-figure haul on his return from injury in Gameweek 31. But the West Ham United winger blanked in a 2-0 defeat at Brentford on Sunday.

James Maddison (£6.9m) was the second most-popular signing ahead of the deadline, gaining nearly 300,000 new owners. He fared better than Bowen with an assist in a 2-1 home win over Crystal Palace.

There was disappointment for the 207,000+ managers who moved for Matt Doherty (£4.9m) following three double-digit scores in six appearances, with the wing-back forced off with an injury during the first half at Villa Park.
