Few line-up surprises as Wolves host Man United

Wolves and Manchester United have both named largely unsurprising line-ups for the first Monday night clash of the 2019/20 season.

As expected, Nuno Espirito Santo has made no changes from last week, retaining a 3-5-2 shape for his key men.

The majority of them were not involved when Pyunik were seen off 4-0 at Molineux on Thursday, so Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m) and Diogo Jota (£6.5m) have both had seven days since their last start.

Popular budget midfielder Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) continues to be involved in the heart of Wolves’ engine room, alongside Rúben Neves (£5.5m) and Joao Moutinho (£5.5m).

Matt Doherty (£6.0m) holds onto his right wing-back berth following injury in pre-season, with Jonny (£5.5m) on the opposite flank.

While Jota and Jiménez boast 19.3% and 11.4% ownership each, the wider Fantasy world does appear to be backing a Manchester United clean sheet.

That’s according to the ownership anyway, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) the most popular player in the Monday evening meeting.

He currently sits in 36.1% of teams while David de Gea (£5.6m) is owned by 20.4% and Harry Maguire (£5.5m) by 19.2%.

The Gameweek 2 captaincy debate also concludes with Marcus Rashford (£8.6m) getting the final say.

He comes into Gameweek 2 skippered by over 220,000 managers, making him the most fashionable captain at Molineux today.

Meanwhile, Daniel James (£6.0m) comes in for his firstever start for Manchester United in the Premier League.

“He has made an impact since day one. In pre-season, in training and he came on last week to get a goal. We’re going to chop and change at times. Andreas did well last week but today Daniel James is the right choice. Dan is Dan. He’ll give us the X factor of his pace, his attributes also off the ball will be important as he’s incredibly hard-working.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Wolves XI: Patrício; Boly, Coady, Bennett; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Doherty; D Jota, Jiménez.

Man United XI: De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Pogba; Rashford, Lingard, D James; Martial.

  13. Four Hit Wonder

    My mini league aspirations can't handle an AWB cleanie.

          Looks ok. A few there I'm not sure about yet - Lanzini, Mount, Wickham, Alder - but more interesting than most.

    Pope/Button
    TAA/Zinc/Shaw/Kelly/Lund
    Mane/Sterling/KDB/Martial/Maddison

  22. Penguin
    • 6 Years

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Can't imagine he gets much gametime right now unfortunately. Might be worth the hit (only for a worthwhile player, mind.)

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Take him out.

  23. Freaki

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Lacabacca
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Yes, easy.

        Thank you!

  27. drilsby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    -8 in general enough to warrant a WC?

    Or when would you draw the line?
    Obviously I can find some minor other changes I might want, but its mainly the 2 players for -8.

    Cheers
