Palmer presents a different kind of captaincy

Over 496,000 Fantasy Premier League Managers were rewarded for being captains Cole Palmer Gameweek 30 (£5.8m)

Palmer scored twice as Chelsea drew 2–2 with Burnley, earning 15 points for his performance, or 30 points as captain.

It proved to be a smart move by the managers as Palmer was the fifth most captained.

Erling Holland (£14.3m) and Son Hyung-min (£10.1m) are the first two picks, meanwhile Mohammed Salah (£13.2m) He is the third most captained player with 1.3m giving him the armband.

Ollie Watkins (£9.0m) was trusted as captain by 800,000+ managers, but disappointed in Aston Villa's 2-0 win against local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers and was not involved in a single goal. half time

Despite being at the top of the fantasy player standings, Watkins has now been blanked in three straight outings and is already the top-selling player in Gameweek 31.

No.1 armband choice Holland has the confidence of 3.6 million managers in Manchester City's home encounter against Arsenal on Sunday.

Encouragingly, the Norwegian scored and provided two assists in the relevant competition last season.

Palmer's 15-point haul was his eighth double-figure haul of the campaign, joint-most in Fantasy with Salah and Son.

And it was thoroughly deserved, as Palmer took nine shots against Vincent Kompany's side, two more than anyone else in the current round.

I want Malo (£4.2m) featured in the top five transfers but, unlike his high-flying Chelsea team-mate, endured a frustrating afternoon recording a solitary point on the right.

It wasn't for lack of effort, however, as the cut-price defender created four chances, including one big one, and took three shots.

Son and Rodrigo Muniz (£4.6m) for their new owners, scoring in their respective matches.

A home meeting with Luton Town proved the perfect tonic for Son as Plank bounced back from a two-point deficit away to Fulham in Gameweek 29.

Tottenham Hotspur won 2–1, with Son scoring the winning goal to take 10 points.

Muniz, meanwhile, continued his fine form with a goal for Sheffield United. Over the past eight game weeks, he brings his total to 62 points, the most of any player over that span.

Salah is the most bought player

More than a million managers came to Salah for Gameweek 30.

Liverpool host Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday before entertaining Sheffield United in Gameweek 31.

Enticing domestic fixtures have added Salah back to the fantasy menu following his return from injury at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Egyptian found himself in more than 55 percent of squads prior to his departure in Gameweek 21, and despite his increased popularity, he remains relatively rare with 31 percent ownership.
