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

    Anyone know what happened to Valery as yellow flagged?

      Went down clutching his hammy/cramp. Tried to continue, but couldn't.

      Suspected cramp apparently.

    "West Ham vs United" infuriates me. West Ham are United too

      Yeah. Same as a toon fan. Like there’s only one f*cking Utd.

        Well, there is.

      2. Rash

        When people say "city" 99% know its man city.. same with United.

        1. Hernandez Lynam
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          11 days, 9 hours ago

          OK, but if you'd say city vs Coventry for example. That's either lacking respect, or showing ignorance, one or the other.

          1. Rash
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            11 days, 9 hours ago

            For me personally it's a case of Leeds, Newcastle, Coventry etc having their own first name where as Manchester clubs share that name hence United and city.

              Oi - what about Sheffield?

              1. Rash
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                I'd call them by their full name.

                1. Hernandez Lynam
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  11 days, 8 hours ago

                  That's fine, but professional reporters seemingly unaware of a club's full name is just wrong. Knowing and not carrying is even worse

        Shows a lack of respect when coming from commentators and the like who should know better imo

        Yep. Fans (of other clubs) is one thing, commentators, reported etc is quite another.

    Just got in. Duffy (c).
    Logs out, opens anything resembling alcohol.

    On a serious note, anyone considering transferring all of their Brighton assets out for next week? Tempted to go double Watford as a risky punt after that car crash.

    The new definition of casual(s) on Merriam-Webster, according to FFS:

    "Any FPL team manager whom do not conform with the Scout Picks, Template or Bandwagon that is deemed to make up the 90% majority of the player selections for any particular game week in FFS"

    Fact:
    Assuming FFS community is at 500,000, out of the 6 million odd teams in FPL (including dead),
    that is less than 10% of the overall team managers.

    Digest that again, who's the casuals? The 10% or the 90%?

    Absolutely sickening, proud and ignorant bunch of folks here to make that claim, yeah, myself included.

    It's like reading and hearing the disgusting stuff that comes out of the dude at the helm in the White House atm. Cringe AF
