Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m) extended his lead at the top of the Fantasy Premier League standings with his 14th assist of the campaign on Tuesday.

The most-captained player in Gameweek 37, just under 1.6million FPL managers backed the Portuguese in Manchester United’s home match against Fulham.

It is the 11th time this season that he has been the No 1 captain pick, the joint-most alongside Mohamed Salah (£12.8m). But his backers may have mixed feelings about their decision.

While Fernandes registered yet another attacking return in his side’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, he was also booked, totalling four points.

Those who gave him the armband must now wait and see whether Salah and Harry Kane (£11.8m) beat that score.

Liverpool travel to Burnley on Wednesday with Salah enjoying an excellent run of form, having produced an attacking return in six successive starts.

Meanwhile, Kane will be looking to deliver on his promising underlying statistics when Aston Villa visit Tottenham Hotspur. His 30 shots over the last six matches are three more than anyone else. 

The leading 100 FPL managers have captained the same three players but in a different order, with Salah the most popular choice.

Mason Greenwood (£7.3m) was the top transfer target for Gameweek 37, having scored six goals in seven matches. 

But he was unable to add to his tally, leaving his 218,000+ new owners disappointed.

The second and third most-bought players suffered a similar fate.

Jack Harrison (£5.5m) blanked in Leeds United’s 2-0 win over Southampton, and Ferran Torres (£7.0m) returned a single point in Manchester City’s 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

A tactical reshuffle led to the Spaniard being withdrawn after just 14 minutes when Joao Cancelo (£5.8m) was sent off.

A foot injury prompted more than 644,000 Fantasy managers to part company with Diogo Jota (£6.9m), the most-sold player ahead of the deadline.

And Aston Villa’s tricky final fixtures against Spurs and Chelsea meant Ollie Watkins (£6.4m) was also shipped out in large numbers. 

The second most-selected player in FPL, Son Heung-min (£9.7m), suffered a dent to his ownership with over 115,000 parting company with the South Korean following his blank in Gameweek 36.
