Starts for Sterling, Aguero and Lacazette but Aubameyang misses out

Two Premier League fixtures take place this evening, bringing Double Gameweek 35 to a close.

Wolverhampton Wanderers host Arsenal in the 19:45 BST kick-off at Molineux before the Manchester derby gets underway at a rain-soaked Old Trafford 15 minutes later.

Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero both start for City but Pep Guardiola has made three changes to the side that beat Spurs on Saturday, with Vincent Kompany, Fernandinho and David Silva replacing John Stones, Phil Foden and the injured Kevin de Bruyne.

Bernardo Silva continues on the right flank with Sterling on the opposite wing, meaning no start for Riyad Mahrez or Leroy Sane.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has wielded the axe after the 4-0 loss at Everton, with Matteo Darmian, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard returning in place of Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot, Nemanja Matic, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial.

All bar the injured Jones of those five players are among the substitutes.

There is no Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the Arsenal matchday squad, with the Gabonese striker and wing-back Sead Kolasinac among seven players to drop out of Unai Emery’s starting XI.

Arsenal say that Aubameyang misses out this evening having had a “small sinus procedure”, while Kolasinac is among the substitutes.

Shkodran Mustafi, Mohamed Elneny, Carl Jenkinson, Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavraponos are the other men to make way as Sokratis, Nacho Monreal, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi are recalled to Emery’s line-up.

The Arsenal head coach looks to be reverting to a 4-2-3-1, with Iwobi, Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil supporting Alexandre Lacazette in attack.

Leander Dendoncker for Morgan Gibbs-White is Nuno Espirito Santo’s only change, meaning that Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota, Matt Doherty and Jonny all get two starts in Double Gameweek 35.

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Darmian, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, Young, Fred, Pereira, Pogba, Lingard, Rashford.

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero.

Wolves XI: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Jimenez, Jota

Arsenal XI: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal, Torreira, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Iwobi, Lacazette.

    Bit stuck this week, ideally want a 3rd Liverpool player but would be for a -4 and potentially losing another good player. Thoughts on the below? Still got TC left.

    Ryan/Foster
    Robertson Laporte Doherty Duffy Valery
    Sterling Mane Son Eriksen Hooiberg
    Aguero Jimenez Gray

      We’ve got very similar teams. There are really only 3 options:

      A) Save FT, TC Mane
      B) Aguero -> Firminio, TC Mane (you’d probably want to reverse this transfer in GW37 though as city have Leicester at home)
      C) Eriksen & Agueto -> Salah & Rashford (-4), TC Salah (you will likely have to take another -4 in GW37 though to get Aguero back)

      It really all comes down to how badly you want to TC Salah.

      I’m leaning towards A being the correct choice but I can absolutely understand why people would want to do C

        Yeah think you've summarised that quite well. What are your thoughts on the Salah in NY/rest rumours?

        Only other option I've considered is a -4 to get TAA/VVD in. Doesn't make as much sense for 1 week but more of a long term move than the above?

    Thoughts on my team for gw36?

    Ryan
    TAA Duffy Robertson
    Son Eriksen Mane(TC) Sterling(V)
    Llorente Aguero Jimenez

    Foster Deulofeu Kolasinac Valery

    Subs are tricky, not sure about Llorente over Deulofeu. I know dbl Brighton defence is risky but I'm not overly confident of my other options keeping a CS.

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      I'd have Kola and Deulo ahead of Duffy and Llorente tbh

      1. emyoueffsee
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 28 days ago

        I'm actually considering transferring Deulo(can see him being a rotation risk in run in) out for Redmond and playing him instead of Llorente. Good idea?

                  Yeah

                could be a great differential

                chasing big time which one will score more points lads (already got three pool players, son, raz):
                a. Duffy + KDB -> Laporte + Bilva
                b. Wilson+ KDB -> Kun + Hojj
                c. Liorente + KDB -> Bilva + Rash

                all moves for a hit thx

                    Hi all please have a vote...
                    A. KDB + trippier -> Mane + TAA -4
                    B. KDB + kolasinac -> Mane + TAA -4
                    C. Pogba KDB + trippier to Salah ransom mid under 6 (will start deulofeu) + TAA -4
                    D. Pogba KDB + tripper to mane Bernardo Silva and TAA -8

                    League leader is 12 ahead of me, I need to triple captain a

                    What's going on with Joe and co? No b club, no scoutcast ?

                    100 pt mini league leads (£600)
                    2000 OR but no Sterlers or Mane

                    Have Kun and Salah

                    Could -8 for Sterlers and 4.5 forward

                    Out Lacazette and Moura

                    4 months, 28 days ago

                    Odds to score one goal or more (bet365)

                    Salah: x1.36
                    Aguero: x1.56
                    Mane: x1.72
                    Sterling: x1.83

                    If you don't have Salah, would it be safer (CL for pool) and wiser (the odds) to play the TC on Aguero?
