‘Thats scary’, ‘Pep benching him will be hilarious’ – Man City fans react as Erling Haaland takes Salah’s FPL record becoming the most captained player EVER for a single gameweek


Erling Haaland has made Fantasy Premier League history by becoming the most captained player EVER for a single gameweek.

The 22-year-old phenom has scored NINE goals in just five games for Manchester City, having bagged back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

He’s a monstrous player on the pitch and equally devastating on FPL – racking up a whopping 58 points since the start of the 2022/23 season.

And ahead of Man City’s Premier League trip to Aston Villa, a staggering 5,398,620 FPL users have captained the Norwegian sensational.

With 5.39m owners, Erling Haaland has become the most-captained FPL player ever for a single gameweek ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Aston Villa.

Haaland will fancy his chances of increasing his goal tally considering the form of Steven Gerrard’s team.

The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
