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

    Fair play to Ole for trying to turn Lukaku into Salah. Shame it didn't work out this match. Try again next match

        Maybe try him on the left wing, so he can cross the ball with his better foot to Mata in the center forward position

    Doherty owners. Bit worried now about dgw gametime or not?
    Saw he was taken off before the hour, but frankly with Valery and double Brighton, I'd need hits to sort them all out!

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

      Doherty was taken off because he looked exhausted (I was at the game). Valery will be fine. He was taken off as a precaution and left the pitch unaided.
