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

              The other thing about Brighton triple up was there was 2 dgws in a row so getting 4 games for the price of 2.didnt seem particularly silly idea to me with nailed on defenders.

                  Martial and Lukaku both going next week. Deeney and Mane in most likely

                        All this goes to show is that FPL is more about predicting the shocks than predicting the expected. Far more focus should be spent on shock predicting IMO.

                          They are shocks for a reason though..?

                            11 days, 8 hours ago

                            Has anyone actually looked at the data though?

                            Do 'shocks' happen at a particular period (e.g. in DGWs or in certain months?). Do certain teams provide more 'shocks' than others (both wins and losses)? What do 'shock' results constitute (are there many CS in shocks or are they more goalfests)?

                          So you're saying we should focus on predicting the unpredictable...
