Up against a Liverpool defence with three clean sheets in their last four and with only a single goal in his last five starts, Sunderland’s Jermain Defoe (£7.7m) was a far from obvious choice for the Gameweek 20 captaincy.
Defoe's two goals from the penalty spot harvested a 26-point armband haul against the Reds, setting Liam up for a Gameweek to remember.
Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud (£8.6m), Everton's Leighton Baines (£5.4m) and Tottenham Hotspur’s Dele Alli (£8.4m) all supplied 15 points apiece, with the latter’s brace against Chelsea on Wednesday sealing Gameweek 20 glory for Liam’s line-up.
Yet again the Bench Boost chip was to prove pivotal for a weekly winner.
The use of the chip allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£11.6m) and Matt Phillips (£5.7m) to provide eight and nine points respectively from Liam’s substitutes, while Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel (£4.9m) joined team-mate Wes Morgan (£4.8m) in recording clean-sheet returns at Middlesbrough.
As manager of the week, Liam wins a copy of FIFA 17, a Nike Ordem 4 match ball and an FPL mug, all packaged in a Fantasy Premier League rucksack.
