Anthony Martial was Manchester United's top-scoring player in the Premier League's ever-popular Fantasy Football game for 2019/20.

The Frenchman did the business as a midfielder in the game, finishing on a round 200 points after racking up the goals, assists and bonus marks throughout the term.

Marcus Rashford, who is slightly more expensive to buy in the transfer system and classified as a striker, was in second spot, ahead of third-placed David De Gea.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka scored consistently all season in his debut campaign as a Red, to finish fourth, one place above fellow summer signing Harry Maguire, with both regular starters in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.

Goal-and-assist machine Bruno Fernandes came in sixth, on 117 points, despite only playing in the division from February onwards.

In terms of the bonus-point system, skipper Maguire topped this chart, ahead of Rashford and Wan-Bissaka. A range of stats are used to create this bonus score for each player with the three top performers in each match awarded extra points. 

Bruno was the most popular player at the end of the season as he was included in 28.4 per cent of all teams. Mason Greenwood, available at a bargain price, was second in this respect, as he rewarded those who selected him with his terrific form after football resumed.

Fantasy Football goes from strength to strength and, no doubt, the start of next season's game in September will already be hotly anticipated.
