Sánchez earns start for Man United as Rashford shakes off yellow flag

Alexis Sánchez (£10.0m) has come into the Manchester United side for his first start since Gameweek 29.

The Chilean international has been in a front-three, but his position within that is yet to be confirmed with Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) also in the side.

The Englishman had been a fitness doubt ahead of Gameweek 37 but has overcome it, much to the delight of his 21.2% ownership.

Paul Pogba (£8.5m) is the only Manchester United player in more squads for Gameweek 37, so there will be plenty of interest in both of those two.

Meanwhile, his attacking partner Sánchez is one for those chasing extreme deficits in their mini-leagues and overall rankings.

He sits in just 1.2% of teams for the trip to Huddersfield and still remains a risk despite his start. The last time he featured from the beginning, Sánchez lasted just 51 minutes.

Elsewhere in the Manchester United team, there were welcome starts for those invested in their defence.

Luke Shaw (£5.1m) is the most popular, owned by 7.1%, while Victor Lindelöf (£5.2m) features alongside Phil Jones (£5.1m), who overcame a fitness doubt to start.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are also in action at the same time, with Eden Hazard (£10.9m) the most captained player of Sunday’s games.

410,000+ managers have trusted him with the armband after three double-figure hauls in his last four home matches.

He has been stationed on the left of an attacking front-three for Chelsea, with Gonzalo Higuaín (£9.0m) and Pedro (£6.2m) alongside him.

Owners of Chelsea defenders may be a little cautious given that Troy Deeney (£5.8m) is back in the Watford side.

He returns from a three-match suspension to play alongside Gerard Deulofeu (£5.7m) in a front-two, who has six goals and an assist in his last five away matches.

Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Christensen, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hazard, Higuain, Pedro.

Watford XI: Foster, Femenia, Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas, Doucoure, Hughes, Chalobah, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney.

Huddersfield XI: Lössl; Bacuna, Schindler, Kongolo, Durm; Mbenza, Mooy, Hogg, Löwe; Pritchard; Grant.

Man United XI: De Gea; Shaw, Jones, Lindelöf, Young; Pogba, McTominay, Matic; Rashford, A Sánchez, Mata.

      Actually MU's game was shocking. No passion, no desire, absolutely trash... I made last minute Son-Pogba move so luckily not to have - pints at last.

      Rashford will be Welbeck Mark II, not good enough for a Top 6 Club.

        Sadly one of their best current players though.

    • ZeBestee

      Son + Gray 》》BSilva + Rashford worth a punt?

      Cardiff are relegated, can't see much fight there while Utd are at home, would wan't to finish on a high.

        I've had Rashford for his 2,2,2,2. Don't think I'd bother tbh

        3. Would Ed Woodward
            1 month, 22 days ago

            Don't get any Utd players, the players aren't capable of a performance even if they wanted to be which they don't seem to care about in the slightest.

          Vardy and Aguero to have a goalscoring contest tomorrow night. Vardy to come out on top. 2-3 LEI.

          COME ON JAMIE

          (and Aguero is my captain, too. Also have Laporte but so do most!)

          Why didn't Giroud's big chance missed on 86' not count as a chance created for Hazard?

          The deflection on Hazard's cross was so minimal it would have been an assist so why doesn't it count as a chance created? Cost him 3 bonus. It seems a genuine error from Opta / FPL.

          In Europe's top 5 leagues, Huddersfield have the joined worst points (15) and that's only because Chievo (18-3) took a -3 for financial reasons. Well done Man United.

          People not selling an out of form Son for Hazard (even for a hit) was silly.

              I sold Son and Mane for -4.
              For Siggy and Hazard(c) Worked out well. On another day though they could have hurt.

            Planning for -12 GW38 for fun with BB to compensate: Boly/Son/Martial/Jimenez to TAA/B Silva/Tielemans/Wilson, madness?

              for fun? sounds not bad, but be braver.

            In Son's place

            1) Eriksen
            2) Lucas Moura
            3) Pogba (rather not)
            4) Milijo
            5) one of the Silvas

            1. Yoshioka

                I have no idea myself.

                Might take a punt on Tielemans.

                3 or Bilva.

              So proud of the 1 point I gained with my Lascelles to Shaw transfer

              Man U really got the bum end of the deal with that Mkhitaryan Sanchez swap.

              If Kompany starts tomorrow:
              Son & Jonny to Bilva & Kompany (-4)?
