Left-back Arthur Masuaku (£4.7m) registered 11 clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI), along with nine recoveries to claim the maximum three bonus points, scoring 29 in the Bonus Points System (BPS).
Team-mate Sam Byram (£4.2m) claimed two additional points, with the right-back winning five tackles to finish with 28 BPS.
While Kouyate produced the winning goal, he missed out with 25 BPS having committed two fouls.
The Ghanaian recorded five touches and three shots in the box to score 55 for Threat – the best of the match – and also created two goalscoring chances.
But in terms of Creativity, it was Manuel Lanzini (£6.4m) who stood out for the hosts.
The Argentinian produced three scoring opportunities, including one "big chance", and two successful crosses to tally 45 for Creativity and 7.0 in the Index overall.
A groin problem ensured that he was preserved on the bench against the Swans, with Carroll’s remaining 4.6% ownership hoping for a return to the starting line-up for the Gameweek 33 trip to Sunderland.
On the back of four successive blanks and without a goal since Gameweek 24, FPL managers are losing patience with Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.7m).
The midfielder is ranked second for sales since Saturday’s deadline, with more than 34,000 managers dispensing of his services.
Over his last four starts, the Swansea midfielder has produced only four shots in the box and created seven chances, compared with seven close-range efforts and 14 chances created over his previous four Gameweeks.
Fernando Llorente’s (£6.3m) recent absence through injury has hindered Sigurdsson’s output.
The striker returned from the bench in Saturday’s defeat and his availability for the Gameweek 33 trip to Watford could revive both Swansea's and Sigurdsson’s prospects.
