Fantasy Premier League GW36 Recap: Haaland Inspires Managers with 42-Point Haul


Over four million Fantasy Premier League managers received significant points boosts in Gameweek 36, thanks to Erling Haaland's remarkable performance for Manchester City. His four-goal heroics against Wolverhampton Wanderers earned him a staggering 42 points, reigniting confidence among FPL managers who trusted him with the captain's armband.

Haaland's Dominance:

Haaland's spectacular display not only secured a massive haul for managers but also solidified his position as a top contender for the Castrol Golden Boot. With seven double-digit hauls this season, Haaland has emerged as a consistent point-scorer, leading the race for individual accolades.

Salah's Milestone:

Mohamed Salah's contribution in Liverpool's victory over Tottenham Hotspur added another feather to his cap. His goal and two assists propelled him to the historic milestone of recording 200 points or more in seven different seasons, surpassing Frank Lampard's record.

Saka's Brilliance:

Bukayo Saka's standout performance for Arsenal against AFC Bournemouth earned him a double-figure haul, showcasing his potential as a valuable FPL asset. With 28 attacking returns this season, Saka has demonstrated his consistency and growth in the Fantasy Premier League.

Palmer's Promise:

Despite a promising start with an early goal for Chelsea against West Ham United, Cole Palmer couldn't replicate his previous high-scoring performance. Nonetheless, his goal hinted at his potential to deliver significant returns, keeping FPL managers hopeful for future gameweeks.

Isak's Impact:

Alexander Isak continued his impressive form for Newcastle United, contributing a goal and an assist against Burnley. With 12 attacking returns in the last nine matches, Isak has become a popular choice among FPL managers, especially with Newcastle having two fixtures in the upcoming Double Gameweek 37.

Man City's Influence:

Manchester City players dominated FPL transfers, with Josko Gvardiol and Kevin De Bruyne among the most sought-after assets. While Gvardiol continued his attacking contributions, De Bruyne disappointed his new owners with a blank. Nevertheless, City's upcoming double gameweek keeps them firmly in FPL managers' radar.

Top 100 Managers' Choices:

Haaland emerged as the overwhelming captaincy choice among the top 100 FPL managers, reaffirming his status as a top pick across all tiers of managers. Cole Palmer emerged as a notable differential choice, showcasing the diversity in captaincy decisions among elite FPL managers.


Gameweek 36 provided FPL managers with a mix of standout performances, milestone achievements, and strategic captaincy choices. With the season approaching its climax and Double Gameweek 37 on the horizon, managers must navigate player rotations and fixture congestion to maximize their points hauls and climb up the FPL rankings.
