In the latest round of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) action, more than 1 million managers saw their faith rewarded as Son Heung-min delivered in Tottenham Hotspur's clash against Arsenal. Here's a detailed breakdown of the key players and their performances in Gameweek 35.

Son Shines Amidst Defeat:

Son Heung-min proved to be the standout performer of Gameweek 35, as over 1 million FPL managers brought him into their squads. Despite Tottenham's 3-2 defeat to Arsenal, Son's second-half penalty ensured a respectable seven-point return for his owners.

Isak and Fernandes Make an Impact:

Alexander Isak impressed FPL managers with a stellar performance, netting two goals and earning three bonus points for a massive 13-point haul. Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes, recruited by nearly 700,000 managers, showcased his creativity with nine chances created, despite failing to register a goal or assist.

Foden's Disappointment and Jackson's Involvement:

Phil Foden's absence due to illness disappointed over 587,000 managers who had brought him in for Manchester City's match against Nottingham Forest. However, Nicolas Jackson's involvement in Chelsea's draw against Aston Villa provided hope for his 586,000+ owners ahead of their clash with Spurs.

Haaland and Palmer Lead the Captaincy Race:

Erling Haaland reclaimed his status as the most-captained player for Gameweek 35, rewarded with a goal against Nottingham Forest. Meanwhile, Cole Palmer, despite a blank in his first outing, remained a popular captaincy choice among FPL managers.

Salah's Return and Watkins' Disappointment:

Mohamed Salah's return from the bench for Liverpool's draw against West Ham United saw nearly 900,000 managers retain faith in him, albeit resulting in a one-point return. Conversely, Ollie Watkins failed to deliver for the top captains, blanking for the first time in four appearances.


Gameweek 35 witnessed mixed fortunes for FPL managers, with standout performances from Son Heung-min and Alexander Isak overshadowing disappointments such as Phil Foden's absence. As the season approaches its climax, astute captaincy choices and player selections will be crucial in the race for FPL glory.
