Erling Haaland becomes the most captained player EVER for a single Fantasy Premier League gameweek
| Last updated
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.
That's an FPL record, breaking Mohamed Salah's record. The Liverpool star was captained by 5,139,561 in gameweek 17 of last season.

Haaland will fancy his chances of increasing his goal tally considering the form of Steven Gerrard's team.
They've lost four of their five league matches, conceding nine goals.
