We look at the latest Sky Sports Fantasy Football team of the week after the Premier League's star strikers struggled to shine again.
Mohamed Salah was the top scorer of the weekend as the only player to bag a brace, with his 21-point tally seeing him regain top spot in the overall rankings.
Here's a look at the line-up in full...
Paulo Gazzaniga (£4.6m) - 14 points
Few would have expected Tottenham's goalkeeper to be their most important player when Crystal Palace visited Wembley on Sunday. However, while the weekend's most popular captain Harry Kane failed to make an impact, Spurs' third-choice stopper made three crucial saves to help his side avoid an upset, claiming the Sky Sports man-of-the-match award in the process.
Leighton Baines (£8.2m) - 16 points
Once a Sky Sports Fantasy Football favourite, Baines rolled back the years with a goal and an assist in Everton's dramatic 3-2 win over Watford. However, those thinking of securing his services should be aware that it was his first direct contribution to a goal this season, while the Toffees have only recorded a solitary clean sheet.
Cesar Azpilicueta (£8.2m) - 12 points
Chelsea recorded their fifth clean sheet of the season to secure a 1-0 victory over Manchester United, with a regular pattern of play ensuring they saw off Jose Mourinho's stubborn backline. Remarkably, Azpilicueta had already assisted four of Alvaro Morata's goals this season and helped his compatriot take his tally to seven for the season on Super Sunday.
Steve Cook (£7.4m) - 14 points
Bournemouth fans are having to appreciate every goal they get at the moment, with just six scored in 10 games before the weekend. However, their seventh of the season was worth the wait as they snatched a 1-0 victory at St James' Park thanks to Cook's 92nd-minute winner.
Simon Francis (£6.7m) - 13 points
Cook was also fundamental to keeping the Cherries level, but it was his centre-back partner Francis who was named man of the match, having won 16 aerial battles, more than twice the amount of any other player.
Scott Malone (£6m) - 12 points
The 26-year-old has struggled for game time since joining Huddersfield but boosted his chances of a regular place in David Wagner's team on Saturday, helping keep a clean sheet while also assisting Rajiv van La Parra's winner against West Brom.
Rajiv van La Parra (£7m) - 13 points
Van La Parra's first Premier League goal earned Huddersfield their second straight home win and took them to 11 points from their five home games this season, a record equal to third-placed Tottenham.
David Silva (£10.6m) - 12 points
Manchester City's relentless title charge continued with Super Sunday's 3-1 victory over Arsenal and saw Silva move clear of team-mate Kevin De Bruyne at the top of the assists chart with his seventh of the season. The Spaniard also collected the man-of-the-match award, although De Bruyne can comfort himself with a sublime opener against the Gunners.
Antony Knockaert (£8.5m) - 12 points
Plenty tipped Brighton's promotion star to shine in the Premier League but it has taken some time for him to deliver. However, after opening his account with a goal against Everton last month, his creativity opened up Swansea's defence on Saturday as his perfect cross assisted Glenn Murray's close-range winner.
Mohamed Salah (£9.4m) - 21 points
Salah's storming start to life at Liverpool sees him sit top of the Sky Sports Fantasy Football scoring charts after 11 matches, with 95 points to his name thanks to seven goals and three assists. The Egypt international bagged a brace at West Ham on Saturday, justifying his place in 44.61% of all sides, making him also the most popular pick in the Premier League.
Peter Crouch (£8.4m) - 11 points
No striker managed to match Salah's tally for the weekend so it is perennial super-sub Crouch who leads the line. The former England striker headed home for an unmatched 52nd time in the Premier League, also his 15th goal off the bench, to salvage a point for Stoke against Leicester.
