Erling Haaland (£12.2m) became the first player to break the 200-point mark this season with his penalty at Crystal Palace.

The No 1 captain in FPL for the 24th time this season, with 4.4million handing him the armband, Haaland scored his 28th Premier League goal as Manchester City beat Palace 1-0 to go to 203 points in 2022/23.

Haaland becomes just the 41st player to register 200+ points in a campaign since Fantasy began back in 2002/03.

Indeed, his 203 points place him 70th in the all-time rankings, and he is exactly 100 points away from matching the record total of 303 set by Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) in 2017/18.

It was a disappointing day for the 843,000 managers who backed Salah as the Egyptian missed a penalty in Liverpool's 1-0 defeat to AFC Bournemouth.

Only once before has Salah returned zero points in a match since he joined Liverpool in 2017/18.

The three most-sold players were either injury doubts or out of favour heading into the Gameweek.

There was frustration for the 585,000+ managers who parted company with Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard (£6.9m). The Norwegian recovered from illness to start and score in the Gunners' 3-0 win at Fulham.

Riyad Mahrez (£7.5m) had failed to start Man City's previous three matches, and he remained on the substitutes' bench for the trip to Palace.

And Eddie Nketiah (£6.6m) again missed out for Arsenal with a knock. The most-sold player last Gameweek, Nketiah was ditched by a further 328,000 managers.
