DGW19 FPL stats: Mixed fortunes for Mitrovic owners

Fulham forward scores in first Double Gameweek fixture but picks up costly yellow card

More than one million Fantasy Premier League managers snapped up Aleksandar Mitrovic (£7.1m) for Fulham's Double Gameweek - and it was a night of mixed emotions.

That move looked to have paid off as Mitrovic netted his 11th goal of the season in a 1-0 victory at Leicester City.

But the joy of his managers turned to disappointment when the forward picked up his fifth booking of the season, meaning he will now miss Fulham's second match of DGW19 at home to Chelsea on Thursday 12 January.

Mitrovic 1,011 5
Odegaard 402 2
Rashford 388 8

Martin Odegaard's (£6.6m) outstanding form led to him being recruited by over 402,000 Fantasy managers ahead of Arsenal's home contest with Newcastle United.

The Norwegian had registered an impressive four double-digit hauls in the last five Gameweeks but he was unable to add to that run as the Gunners were held to a 0-0 draw.

Marcus Rashford (£6.9m) came off the bench to score the only goal as Manchester United beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 last Saturday.

Brought in by 388,000+ for Tuesday's enticing home match against AFC Bournemouth, he repaid their faith by scoring again as Man Utd eased to a 3-0 victory.

Haaland 5,938 2
Mitrovic 944 5
Salah 879 2

Mitrovic was second only to the record-breaking Erling Haaland (£12.2m) in the captaincy stakes, and he outscored the Manchester City forward.

Haaland blanked for only the third time this season in Man City's 1-0 win at Chelsea.

Meanwhile, there was disappointment for the backers of the third captaincy choice, Mohamed Salah (£12.9m), who blanked as Liverpool lost 3-1 at Brentford. The Egyptian had only one shot in the entire match.

Prior to Gameweek 19, he'd recorded double-digit returns in each of his two previous road trips.

Toney 453 0
Trossard 361 0
Cancelo 351 1

A leg injury led to Ivan Toney (£7.4m) becoming the most-sold player before Gameweek 19.

Despite notching four goals and two double-figure hauls across his last three outings, many used him as a makeweight to bring in Mitrovic.

That proved to be the right decision as Toney did not feature at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Three successive blanks ensured Leandro Trossard (£6.9m) continued to be sold in large numbers, featuring among the top three transfers out for the second consecutive Gameweek.

And that decision paid off as he was an unused substitute in Brighton's 4-1 win at Everton.

More than 351,000 Fantasy managers parted company with Joao Cancelo (£7.3m) following back-to-back benchings.

And those sellers will also be happy with the move as the Man City defender was substituted at half-time against Chelsea, getting only one point.
