Man Utd star disappoints 2.5m backers after edging Salah as most popular armband choice
More than 2.5million managers handed the Portuguese the armband, making it the first time since his return to Old Trafford he had claimed the No 1 position.
Team-mate Bruno Fernandes (£11.9m) took third place in the captaincy stakes and fared worse, not only blanking but also blazing a penalty over the crossbar in stoppage time to lose two points.
Mohamed Salah (£12.6m), the No 1 choice in four of the previous five Gameweeks, was a close second this time as over 2.3m managers kept faith with the Egyptian.

The leading 100 FPL managers picked the same top two as the masses, with Michail Antonio (£7.9m) replacing Fernandes in third.
Despite missing Gameweek 5 through suspension, Antonio’s tally of four goals and four assists are both more than any other player.

After being the most-sold player last Gameweek, Antonio is the most-bought player this Gameweek.
Antonio’s team-mate Said Benrahma (£6.5m) completes the top three transfers in.
The Algerian’s excellent start to the campaign has lifted his price by £0.5m, the biggest increase of any player.
