Lukaku leads the Man United line as Rashford benched

Romelu Lukaku (£10.8m) has the potential to turn around what has proved to be a rotten Double Gameweek 34 so far, but only for a selection of managers.

The Manchester United striker, owned by just 4.4% overall, has kept his place in the side after disappointment against Barcelona midweek.

With more shots on target than any other player in their last four Premier League matches, he is chasing his 10th goal against West Ham in his 11th match against them in this competition.

His power as a differential option in Double Gameweek 34 has been made stronger by the fact that Marcus Rashford (£7.4m) has been named on the bench in order to keep him fresh for next week’s Champions League second leg.

He is joined among the substitutes by centre-back Victor Lindelöf (£5.0m), Phil Jones (£5.1m) coming in for him.

With Luke Shaw (£5.0m) suspended Marcos Rojo (£4.9m) starts at left-back, with Diogo Dalot (£5.3m) filling in for the banned Ashley Young (£5.7m) on the right.

Former Manchester United forward Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez (£6.1m) leads the West Ham attack today with Marko Arnautovic (£6.8m) missing out thanks to an illness.

Man United XI: De Gea, Dalot, Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Fred, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Lukaku, Martial

West Ham XI: Fabianski, Zabaleta, Ogbonna, Balbuana, Masuaku, Rice, Noble, Lanzini, Anderson, Snodgrass, Hernandez

    Wilson and Fraser combined, 31 points.
    I got rid of both this week, even though I swore I wouldn't.

    Has your WC team beaten Wilson and Fraser?

      Oh no 🙁

      Nearly beaten twice by them 😆

    2. FPL Pillars

      The WCers are the failures this week 🙁 I would be amazed if anyone who WCed beat their old team score so far...

      Nope, currently over 30 points behind my non-WC team. Fraser & Wilson both individually outscoring my 7 played 😀

    4. KneejerkJoe

      Not Even close. 0 points from 6 players included C at 3pm kickoff

        That's just harsh

        WHAT THE HELL?
        HOWS THAT POSSIBLE?

        I can't wait to check the 'what if I stopped playing FPL' stats site this week. Ditched both on a wildcard

      • Hotdogs for Tea

        Beaten me, and the top 10 k average of 18

        I wildcarded Wilson out too. Oof. Thankfully i didn't have Fraser.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN I GOT RID OF FRASER.

          1. Rupert The Horse

            Sorry about the caps.

      • Pat Bonner

      • Hy liverpool

      • ZeBestee

        3 months, 4 days ago

        Also had both. That's fpl for you. Thinking back doesnt help and will make you hurt your feelings. Just enjoy the ups and downs.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Not too upset, just surprised at myself that I got rid of Fraser, Wilson I was always getting rid of.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I wanted to keep my team tbh. Was not keen on WC but I thought of going with the masses and 'fun' of DGW playerd as failure would leave m 'alone'. I don't mind as it's just a game. Cheers

      1. Pat Bonner
        • 8 Years

        1. Jack Frost
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Man city won Caribao , so I guess so. Wasn’t it Burnley last year. Well it’s something and better than 8th. Ha

        That would ruin next season for any of those clubs, 7-10th atm

      3. ZeBestee

      Aaaaaaand that Bournemouth result proves why you shouldn't take advice on here as gospel.

          Definately do, otherwise site wouldn't be so popular. Duh. So many Duffy (c) too.

            being interested in fpl and seeing what people do with their teams =/= “taking advice as gospel”

              All you gotta do is read the comments even just on this page. It's there in black and white.

      2. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        This site has way more upside than downside. You get a lot of information that without it, you would probably be sh*t at the game.

    16. SM001
      • 3 Years

      I think Joey Barton sold Fraser, Wilson and Brooks, for Ryan, Duffy(c) and Knockaert

        I wonder if my pre-WC team is beating my current WC team. Backline 4 players 0 points

      • 2hotty
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        To all who wildcarded including me.we were never gonna keep fraser or wilson or king.We were always gonna punt on brighton cos we love a DGW.
        Rotation was always likely we knew this hindsight can be a wonderful thing sometimes. But lets face facts FPL is our bookies roulette machine and we just got pummelled today so lets move on and looking forward to crying over are BB next week.

          bet your team isn't going to get any BAPS either ... +3 for Fraser

            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            well if Sterling doesn't play he'll come in and he needs a rest

              You can hope, but Son needed a rest too .. unfortunately it only lasted 86 minutes

          Anyone considering taking at least a -4 to get rid of Brighton players for the DGW/BB?

          1. EMBOLOFAN

            Duffy goes for sure, likely to a Watford defender.

            Ryan out for -4 will be temping.

          Feeling so smug after Tottenham game with 15 points from 3, with captain still to play. Now 18 points from 8 I'm feeling like an absolute melon.

          Fraser, Wilson, I miss you lads.

          1. Would Ed Woodward

            FPL is the men’s equivalent of child birth. We’ll forget the pain this time next season and do the same strategy again.

              Well without looking I could practically confirm it'll be:
              3) Fraser
              2) Wilson
