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

      I held thinking United have to start scoring soon and he’ll be pivotal when they do. Lucky penalties though.

        Very, but thought the same too.

        Got him in for 3/6 nice games and see what happens in the rest. Good start!

    Pogba owners getting very lucky with 2 pens. Playing defensive mid today. Guess I’m happy enough with Martial

    Yeah, props to Mike Phelan for forcing change to Pogbas penalty run up. Much better

    No Man Utd player has scored a PL hat trick since April 2013. Shame it won't happen today either.

    1. Becks
      • 1 Year

        Need him to ride the bench tomorrow tho...would get Wilson's jam in.

        1. Freddiebell
          • 2 Years
          11 days, 8 hours ago

          Can't see any of Liverpool front line on the bench, not against Chelsea.

  16. RECKLESS

    Past record gives edge sometimes. Brought in pogba for jota after seeing pogba record vs wham eve mancity. Then after it Hud and such easy matches so good bet till season end

    This gameweek feels like a migraine

  18. diesel001

    Who would have thought that only having one Brighton defender and Pogba would mean a green arrow on Saturday. It will all be red after Monday though.

    1. Dakes.
      • 2 Years

      Green here too. Aguero Mane Robbo Laporte Duffy to go

    Typical United winning thanks to referee and penalties.. oh wait in CL they getting smashed.

    1. LǝgleSs e|even
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Not a Utd fan, but the second goal was a clear cut peno mate

    2. Zladan
      • 1 Year

      Don't be that guy.

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        His name is Chenku. Think he lost halfway there itself

    3. Amey
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Yeah
      Smashed by 1-0

    4. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Smashed? They played okayish and didnt allow Barca to score (Own goal) and can easily get a road goal at the Nou Camp, evening the tie.

    Gotta hate this game sometimes!!!
    Pogba 2 goal
    Fanderson one goal
    Lanzini assist
    Fraser 1 goal 2 assists
    Wilson 1 goal 2 assists

    All out on my wildcard this week!!!

    1. Fossit

      even brooks got a goal and assist!

    3. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      At least you made up for it by replacing them with Brighton defenders.

      All about patience and how much patience to have. Win some lose some. But pogba was best bet on wc after trippy three if sterling son eriksen

    Pogba the rich man Milivojevic.

    Red arrow on wildcard

    Exactly what I needed

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Nearly every Wildcarder will get a red and nearly every non Wildcarders will get a green

    2. Freddiebell
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      The template for WC 34 so far has crashed

  23. Says
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 8 hours ago

    I guess you'll call me a casual, but I have Pogba, Redmond and Brooks. I even left Montoya on the bench despite him having two games, I did play Ryan instead of Ederson though.

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      How is it possible to have those 3?

      1. Says
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        why not?

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 8 hours ago

          Just wondering why you picked them.

          1. Says
            • 8 Years
            11 days, 8 hours ago

            Pogba has scored 16 goals this year, is nailed on for a top 6 side, is on penos and I got him for about £8 million. He's a bargain.

            Redmond and Brooks are also dirt cheap, but capable of goals and assists and have decent fixtures ahead.

            This wasn't a wildcard, I've just had these players for a while.

      2. Says
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 8 hours ago

        Sterling and Mané (c) are my other two mids btw

    2. LǝgleSs e|even
      • 3 Years

      Youre not a casual mate, be proud. Well done. Great planning, even better picks.

  24. Homer21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Remind me again why I got rid of Pogba

    1. Bouncebackability
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 8 hours ago

      Because he plays in his own half unless he is taking a pen.

  25. Amey
    11 days, 8 hours ago

    Pogba is new Milivojevic 😀

    1. Marvin of the D'Urberv…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Milivojevic might be better.
