Mata and Martial start as Mourinho hints at Gameweek 1 back-four

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has already been incredibly helpful for Fantasy Premier League managers after the Red Devils’ first pre-season match.

Following a 1-1 draw with Club America in Phoenix, Arizona he revealed who would be his back-four for Gameweek 1.

Elsewhere there were friendlies for Liverpool and Wolves.

We’ve got all the goals, assists and Fantasy talking points from another round of pre-season matches.

Blackburn Rovers 0-2 Liverpool

  • Goals: Lazar Markovic, Daniel Sturridge
  • Assists: Sturridge, Naby Keita (£7.5m)

Daniel Sturridge and Naby Keita (£7.5m) were the stand-out performers as Liverpool won 2-0 at Blackburn Rovers.

The English striker, not yet priced up by FPL, added his third goal of pre-season while new signing Keita put up his third assist.

It started slowly for the Reds as James Milner (£5.5m) missed a penalty following Dominic Solanke (£5.0m) being fouled in the area.

Adam Lallana (£7.0m) was the most influential player in the first-half, supplying Solanke with great delivery as well as hitting the crossbar and nearly scoring a lob on the goalkeeper himself.

Substitutes Keita and Sturridge combined twice early in the second-half, with a defence-splitting ball from the former putting the Englishman through only to drag wide before another was sent just over the bar.

The deadlock was broken when Sturridge was the provider, his pass lashed home by Lazar Markovic.

Shortly afterwards Sturridge made it 2-0 after yet another insightful pass from Keita.

LIVERPOOL FIRST-HALF XI (4-4-2): Karius; Moreno, Klavan, Matip, Clyne; Ojo, Lallana, Milner, Woodburn; Solanke, Origi.

LIVERPOOL SECOND-HALF XI (4-3-3): Karius; Robertson, Van Dijk, Phillips, Gomez; Jones, Keita, Fabinho; Markovic, Sturridge, Camacho.

Club America 1-1 Manchester United

  • Goals: Juan Mata (£6.5m)
  • Assists: Ander Herrera (£5.0m)

Juan Mata (£6.5m) rescued a draw for Manchester United in their first pre-season match after Jose Mourinho, as expected, named a largely second string side.

Lee Grant (not yet in FPL) began the match in goal while Anthony Martial (£7.5m) lined up as a lone striker in a 4-2-3-1 system.

The Frenchman could have had a penalty in the ninth minute but the referee waved away his appeals. Apart from an effort grazing the crossbar early on, it was a largely disappointing performance for Martial, who was too isolated up front. He was substituted on the hour-mark with a possible knock.

That was when Club America took the lead thanks to a strong Henry Martin header.

Having hit the post in the first-half, Mata scored the equaliser. Substitute Tahith Chong whipped in a lovely ball for Ander Herrera (£5.0m), whose header cannoned back off the woodwork for Mata slamming home the rebound on the volley.

After the match, Jose Mourinho said that the back-four who started it, Antonio Valencia (£6.5m), Chris Smalling (£6.0m), Eric Bailly (£5.5m) and Luke Shaw (£5.0m), would all likely line-up against Leicester City in Gameweek 1.

MANCHESTER UNITED XI (4-2-3-1): Grant (J Pereira 45’); Shaw (Greenwood 76’), Smalling, Bailly, Valencia (Fosu-Mensah 45’); Herrera, McTominay (Tuanzebe 87’); Mitchell (Darmian 60’), Mata (Gomes 87’), A Pereira; Martial (Chong 60’).

Wolves 1-1 Ajax

  • Goals: Ruben Neves (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Helder Costa (£5.0m)

Ruben Neves (£5.0m) got his first goal of pre-season in a 1-1 draw with Ajax at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium on Thursday.

He found the net from the penalty spot after Helder Costa (£5.0m) was fouled in the area.

FPL midfielder Diogo Jota (£6.5m) lined up as a centre-forward for the first time this summer, having spent one match on the flank and missing another so far.

The former Atletico Madrid man started 10 matches in the Championship as the striker in Nuno’s 3-4-3 system, furthering his appeal in FPL for 2018/19.

He was the focal point for Wolves’ attacking play in the match and had several chances to score in the first-half, although he could not find a breakthrough.

It was Ajax who went into the interval 1-0 up after Donny van de Peek cut inside and found the net from 15 yards.

Wolves levelled from the penalty spot in the 73rd minute when Costa was brought down in the area. Neves stepped up to smash in the equaliser from 12 yards.

WOLVES XI (3-4-3): Norris (Ruddy 45’); Boly, Coady, Bennett (Saiss 71’); Giles, Gibbs-White (Goncalves 71’), Neves, Doherty; Cavaleiro (Ashley-Seal 71’), Jota, Costa.

Arsenal 1-2 Brentford

  • Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m)
  • Assists: None

Arsenal played another secret friendly on Thursday with little information available on it.

The Gunners lost 2-1 to Championship side Brentford after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) made it five goals in three pre-season matches with his equaliser.

The Bees winner came from a Bernd Leno (£5.0m) error in which he failed to deal with a ball into the box.

Arsenal will now head to Singapore for more high-profile friendly matches against Paris Saint Germain and Atletico Madrid.

    Best 4.5m mid? Is there anyone?

    Or is there someone 0.5-1m better in 5.0-5.5m range?

    Basically best 5th mid?

    1. Silecro
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Hughes, Cairney, Kennedy, Ralls.
      5.0 bracket is on fire this year, at least theoretically

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Kennedy plays for Newcastle correct? They’ve got tough fixtures to start.

        Is he nailed?

        1. Silecro
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I would say he is,yeah.
          Also, in 4.5 bracket you have Ward (MID, Cardiff) who is in great preseason form, although not asured of starts, has a higher point ceiling than Stephens. I have him as bench fodder

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Okay cheers Silecro

          Not when one of the Ayews turn up there 😉

    2. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Neves, Cairney, Kenedy and Hughes all look good value at 5m
      For 4.5m I guess it's Stephens or Gunnarsson

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Yeah Stephens is my current option.....is he first choice?

        1. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Looks that way from what I've read so far

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Thanks Revival...

    3. FantaCity
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'm on Danny Wardinho (4.5m) based on pre-season optimism

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Who does he play for?

        1. FantaCity
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Cardiff (but I had to check 🙂 )

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            😀

            Not going near Cardiff this season, that’s Warnock right?

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        Picked up a knock in the last game and Cardiff will struggle to score, and he will be far from nailed. Not a great choice

  2. Don Corleone the 1st
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    my first RMT

    Pickford
    Mendy Robertson Shaw
    Salah Sane Martial Deulofeu Cairney
    Kun Firmino

    4.0/Tomkins, Peltier, Kamara

    good team to start with?

  3. Sadio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Who you prefer from Pool backline:

    Alisson or Robertson?

    1. Stats Don't Lie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'm tempted to double up!

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Not sure I can look past DDG for solid flow of points, pick and forget

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Robertson with his attacking threat, shown at end of last season. Playing as a winger

  4. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Is Arnie considered a decent pick around these parts?

    Or now he’s a fwd, has he lost some appeal?

    1. Stats Don't Lie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      More the poor fixtures tbh

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Yeah that as well, but form etc over fixtures?

    2. phild22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      i have him, he did as well against the good teams last season, its a toss up for me between him and zaha

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        I’m currently on both (Zaha & Arnie) with one big fwd.

        Zaha might also be at Spurs

  5. -GK22-
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    RMDTPls

    DDG, Fab
    Shaw, Cedric, Robertson, Boly, PAA
    Salah, Mahrez, Kenedy, Sess, Costa
    Aubameyang, Firmino, Sorloth

  6. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Mendy likely to be first choice now he’s fit?

    Or more rotation nightmares? He competes with Delph, right? Who did all right....

    1. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Think he’ll be first choice. I’m jumping on the bandwagon.

    2. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Should be first choice.

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Cheers both....

  7. Sadio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    The next preseason bandwagon will be...

    I'll go for Josh King.

    1. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      He could do well honestly.

  8. MJFainty
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    How does this look for people?

    Swapped out Coleman/TAA/Morata for Shaw/Ward/Firmino today.

    Foster
    Azpi/PVA/Shaw/Ward
    Salah/Mahrez/Martial
    Aguero/Firmino/Jimenez

    Fab/Cairney/Stephens/Peltier

    Cheers

  9. Ctennick1
    3 months, 25 days ago

    How does my team look? Bare in mind that I'll end up using my wildcard between the 3rd-5th week depending on when players come back from the world cup.

    GK- Begovic, Ryan(SUB)
    DEF- Van aanholt, Mee, Tarkowski, Smalling(SUB), Wan Bissaka(SUB)
    MID - Sanchez, Sane, Salah(C), Mkhitaryan, Mahrez
    FWD - Tosun, Sorloth, Kamara(SUB)

    Based on pre season I am hoping that sorloth will start as a CF in behind or alongside benteke depending on where Zaha will play. As it stands Kamara is fulhams only ST and theyll probably end up signing mitrovic or at least someone else so hes probably the best 4.5mil striker. Tosun has a great run of fixtures ahead of him although Niasse has been playing well in pre-season so hopefully he starts otherwise I may look to Arn or Woods. Midfield is fairly explanatory Salah is basically my premium ST at this point. Surprised with the lack of burnley defenders in peoples teams with the amount of CS they rack up although this may be because they will be in the europa league so rotation may be possible BUT for the first few weeks they have a good run of fixtures. Going to rotate Van aanholt and smalling accordingly, both have a good chance to score goals. Needed two cheap keepers and they seemed like the best options for the first 4-5 weeks.

    1. Bambi
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      you may want to reconsider that forward line.

  10. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    How's it looking? Feels like too many punts and light up top, but not sure which second striker I want.

    Ederson (Speroni)

    Coleman Daniels Robertson

    Neves Sane Salah (C) Mkhi Sessegnon

    Zaha Auba (Niasse)

  11. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    DDG - Fabianski
    Robertson - Bertrand - Cresswell - Tomkins - Wan-Bissaka

    How does that look for the back 7? Any of them complete no-go’s or even not great pics?

    1. Ctennick1
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Cresswell way too expensive plus west hams first ten games all have a difficulty ranking of 3+ apart from one game with them facing 5 of the top 6.

    2. SW6
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      All fine apart from Fabianski, Bertrand and Cresswell.

    3. Sadio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      De Gea at 6.0 is very poor value in my opinion.
      Double Palace backline dreadful. Neither are 100% nailed.
      Cresswell too expensive.
      Bertrand plays for Mark Hughes.

      I do like Robertson though.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        😛

        So it’s okay then?

    4. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Just dropped Cresswell 😆

    5. MJFainty
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Would probably swap out Fab for a cheaper option... for 6m surely you are going to play DDG every game?

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        True...

    6. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Two Palace cheapies not necessarily nailed, awful Soton defence (just get Cedric if you must) and a dodgy injured Hammer ?

      Think you need to spend a bit more on the likes of Mendy and a 5.5

      1. SW6
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 21 days ago

        These posts are 3 days old 😆
        I mean I'm sure they appreciate the replies but not sure they'll notice them.

  12. Jafooli

    Best 7.5m mid? Currently on Ramsey but feel I can do much better....

    1. MJFainty
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'm on Martial with a view to swapping him our for Mkhi/Ramsey when United's first team players are all back in action.

      1. Budweiser
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        What he said

    2. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Siggy? Might be too expensive for an Everton mid, but Im getting him in.

    3. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I’m on Siggy & Ramsey atm.

    4. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Cheers all....

    5. Sadio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Ramsey has looked terrible in preseason and wants out.
      Martial is a transfer waiting to happen.
      Siggy one to consider by GW3 or 4.

      I like Bernardo Silva.
      I like Moura and Mkhitaryan for 7.0
      Keita is one to keep an eye on.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers, have gone Micky....

  13. Budweiser
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    King or Wood?

    I guess King because he's on pens?

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      King. Is he nailed, though? Surely Defoe and Wilson will challenge for the berth?

      1. Budweiser
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        I forgot about Wilson! I had him after he scored a brace against Chelsea and then didn't score for over 10 games! Yuk

        1. Budweiser
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I'm gonna put Wood in I think

    2. Stoneybridge
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Wood scored roughly twice as many points per minute than Firmino last season. There's an eye opener!

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 days ago

      Wood is the dark horse of FPL

  14. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Is Doucoure the dude who just kept scoring last season and we kept ignoring?

    1. CptCrunch
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yes.

    2. Petrichor II
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah, because everybody tempted by Richa.

      Doucore play CDM, but he have more points, and better PPM.

      In my many drafts previously.

  15. Nosy Nutella
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Best 5.5 GK in your opinion?

    1. Stats Don't Lie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Ederson/Alisson

      1. The Real Big Vern
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Do you really want a keeper to take up a city spot?

    2. MJFainty
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Interesting to see Karius and Migs combined total for last season (155 - 3rd best points total), if Alisson nails down that starting spot (which I expect him to), he could be a very good pick. I'm also keeping an eye on the Kasper situation as 5m in to the Chelsea defense would be incredible value.

    3. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'd say Ederson because of the risk of rotation with the rest of the City squad, but most of the teams with good 5.5 keepers also have more interesting attacking wingback options.

  16. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Salah (c) captain GW1, no brainer, right?

    Any other options?

    1. Budweiser
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      *Tumbleweed*

    2. Sadio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I expect Sanchez, Auba, Mane and Firmino to outscore him.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        In GW1 or for season?

        Why Auba so popular? Poor fixtures to start no?

        1. Ason Willa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Because no competition in that price bracket and on penalties. Aguero expected to rotate. Kane August blank + miss the start of the season.

  17. Southgate your the one
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Unsure whether to go Liverpool based or City. Thoughts please?
    A) Salah, Robertson, Tosun (Everton have a kind start)
    B) Aguero, Mendy, Mahrez

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I like a because b has rotation issues for all three will save you making transfers

    Anyone who have the cojones to play 5 atb?

    1. Reuser

      Potentially - going with Robertson, Mendy, Bailly, Douglas and Tomkins, so could quite easily see me playing 5 at the back some weeks. Plenty of value there.

        Snap - I am benching Mendy first GW

      I conisdered it but I bottled it and went for 3 big defenders a 4.5 and a 4.0m gives better balance to team

    3. Stats Don't Lie

      I'm probably doing that

      532/433/442/541 are the formations I'm looking at this year

    4. Stoneybridge

      I'm playing 4-5-1 So I have one cajone.

      Been there, done that, lost the T shirt, done the math
      So "Cajones" is not a word I'd use to describe doing it

          You know it makes sense....

    2. william prunier

      Peltier, scholotto

    3. Sadio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Truthfully?

      None of them. Spend the extra 0.5 for Doherty

  20. Super Saints
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Chances of Schmeichel joing Chelsea?

    Would give me an extra 1m itb as i could go him and Valencia over Azpi and Ddg!

    1. william prunier
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Let's hope it doesn't happen. Will become template

  21. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

    I made yet more adjustments to my team more confident of liverpool defence now karius is gone. Liverpool double up?

    So I am currently on
    Ederson (speroni)
    VVD Robertson Bailly (Daniels bennett)
    Sigurdsson Cairney Mane Sane
    Wood Aguero Aubameyang

    Daniels will start if Bailly is benched.
    I know no Salah but the two up front give leeway in two transfers.
    I don't trust the everton defence I assume they will be leaky.
    I considered chelsea but they have a bad fixture gw2.

    Burnley are still a possible fall back if I need to save money

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

      Left stephens out yet again the poor git

    2. william prunier
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Bournemouth toying with 3-4-3 means no spot for ageing Daniels I'd say

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks, I will have to rethink that one so.

    3. Stats Don't Lie

      I really like it in general but personally think you'd be better off with a 5.0 def over cairney

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Some one said that to me last night.
        Funny enough I got another 4.0 defender to see could I upgrade cairney to cavaleiro. But was not that pleased about thier fixtures.
        If I got a 4.5m mid I could upgrade Daniels to a burnley central defender.
        Can't see southampton scoring no strikers no threat.

    bit of a risky team to start, would like some ideas and advice

    begovic / boruc
    mendy pva shaw / cedric peltier
    sanchez sané willian miki / ward
    aguero firmino tosun

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

      If it works you could be justifiably smug.
      Overall the balance looks good, because of that you can make changes with one hit in an emergency!

    RMT

    Foster
    Daniels / Mendy / PVA
    Salah / Sane / Jota / Martial / Gund
    Firmino / Auba

    Button / Sorloth / Peltier / Bennett

    Am I being silly considering

    Gündogan

    What do you think guys about this team?

    Ederson
    Cedric-Ward-Daniels
    Salah-Martial-Siggy-Mahrez
    Aguero-Firmino-Wilson

    Subs: Speroni-Tomkins-Stephens-Bennett

    1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Someone just told me that Bournemouth are considering a 3-4-3 might mean the end of daniels as he is getting on.
      I would avoid southampton I just don't like them as fpl picks.
      Nothing wrong with the rest.

  25. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Not something I thought I would be writing.
    But, is Jason Puncheon likely to start for palace?
    Decent fixtures would be a good first sub.

    1. william prunier
      • 3 Years

      Super sub these days

      1. Captain Choice - Ag imirt &…

        I will just have to get one of the cardiff fellas instead so.

    Are Mendy and Sane both expected to play GW1?
    Are both expected to consistently play the first few gameweeks?

  28. Stoneybridge

    Going for a different tack this season. Concentrating on value and points per million. Basically top defenders and value mids:

    Fabianski
    Mendy Azpi Robertson Shaw
    Salah Mane Sane Mahrez Jota
    Wood

    Subs 4.5m GK rotator Kamara Sorloth Wan-Bissaka
