There was ecstasy for the 1.7million Fantasy Premier League managers who captained Erling Haaland (£11.7m) as the Manchester City forward heavily outscored Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), despite the Liverpool star playing throughout a 9-0 win.
More than 3.3m FPL managers gave the armband to Salah, who had scored in each of his six previous Premier League appearances against Saturday's visitors AFC Bournemouth, averaging 11.2 points per meeting.
The Egyptian's backers would have been rubbing their hands as the goals flooded in at Anfield, the Reds equalling the Premier League record for the biggest ever victory. But Salah was unable to get a single goal or assist, despite playing the full 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, Haaland looked set for a bad day as Man City trailed 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace at the break. But the Norwegian hit a 20-minute hat-trick in the second half, racking up 17 points in the 4-2 victory.

The 2.1m managers who backed Gabriel Jesus (£8.2m) were also left frustrated.
The Arsenal forward managed only one point in the 2-1 comeback win over Fulham, having also picked up a yellow card.

Salah and Jesus armband backers are not the only managers who will have regrets.
More than 495,000 FPL bosses parted company with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) ahead of the Gameweek 4 deadline, making him the second most-sold player.
They are likely to be ruing that decision after the right-back scored, provided an assist and got a clean sheet against AFC Bournemouth, earning 17 points.

Rodrigo (£6.4m) was among the top three recruits for the second successive Gameweek, having gained over 2.4m new owners since the start of Gameweek 2.
His total of 1.4m buyers in this Gameweek is the most transfers in for any player this season, and the fourth-highest on record.
But the Leeds United midfielder blanked in Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion and has been overtaken at the top of the Fantasy standings by Haaland.
Ivan Perisic (£5.5m) was among the most-sold players in Gameweek 2 but a double-figure haul last time out prompted a U-turn from Fantasy bosses.
The Croat supplied an assist, picked up a clean sheet and was rewarded with the maximum three bonus points in his first start for Tottenham Hotspur against Wolverhampton Wanderers in Gameweek 3.
While not able to repeat his attacking return in Spurs' 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Perisic did pick up six points and another clean sheet.
Kieran Trippier (£5.1m) had been picked up by 698,000+ managers, having showcased his attacking potential in Gameweek 3 with a goal against Man City.
Trippier managed two points as Newcastle United fought back to earn a 1-1 draw at Wolves on Sunday.
Four matches of Newcastle's next six matches rank at just two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings.
