Alphonse Areola (£4.2m) justified his place as the most-popular goalkeeper in Fantasy Premier League with a penalty save in the first half of West Ham United's match against Everton.

But it was a horrible moment for the 1.96million managers who benched the Frenchman for Gameweek 27 and will miss out on his points for stopping the spot-kick from Beto (£5.7m).

More than half of Areola's owners chose to start their other goalkeeper, at 51.7 per cent.

Areola piled on the agony by making eight other saves in the match to rack up a total of 10 FPL points, while he is projected to earn an additional three bonus points.
