Martial furthers FPL cause as Man United defence improves

Wolves 1-1 Manchester United

Goals: Rúben Neves (£5.5m) | Anthony Martial (£7.6m)

Assists: Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) | Marcus Rashford (£8.6m)

Penalty miss: Paul Pogba (£8.6m)

Penalty save: Rui Patrício (£5.0m)

Bonus Points: Moutinho x3, Patrício x2, Neves x1, Rashford x1

Manchester United’s key attacking assets delivered points on Monday night to add further evidence to suggestions they can be important Fantasy options this season.

After Anthony Martial (£7.6m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.6m) got attacking returns at home to a poor Chelsea defence last weekend, the pair were snapped up in their droves for Gameweek 2.

312,546 Fantasy managers snapped up the England international while 232,598 signed Martial.

Despite concerns that they might not be able to replicate Gameweek 1 form against a Wolves side that often raised its game against top-six opposition last season, Manchester United were the better side for much of the Monday night contest.

Martial now has two goals in as many Premier League matches for Manchester United this season

They dominated possession and, even though they did not fashion as many opportunities as Rashford and Martial owners would have liked, their quality still shone through.

Manchester United’s only goal of the game came when Martial made a run just left of his centre-forward furrow, spotted by Rashford, and fired high into the net.

Despite two successive games in a row with attacking returns, there are still one or two questions hanging over the appeal of Rashford.

For the second match in a row, he was deployed on the left flank of attacking midfield, acting more often than not as a winger rather than a forward.

While Rashford was still able to link into attacking play well, it might be hard to justify the extra cost compared to Martial, who is being used as the centre-forward with a midfield classification in FPL.

Furthermore, Monday night also demonstrated that Rashford cannot always count on penalties to supplement his attacking returns either.

Despite scoring one last week against Chelsea, Rashford was not considered for the one Paul Pogba (£8.6m) won in the second half at Molineux.

The two players had a quick discussion before the Frenchman took the spot-kick, only to see his powerful effort saved by Rui Patrício (£5.0m).

Another penalty miss for Pogba sparked a post-match media inquisition into Manchester United’s spot-kick set-up

Pogba has now missed four penalties in 2019 while Rashford has scored all four he has ever taken in his career so far.

Understandably, with Manchester United not winning the game, there was a media inquisition at full-time, in which we learned a little more about the penalty situation.

Last week, Rashford insisted there was no penalty taker, although, at Molineux, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that the Englishman and Pogba form a designated duo.

“The two of them are the designated penalty shooters. It is up to them, there and then who feels that this is mine. Sometimes players just feel that they’re confident enough to score. Paul has scored so many penalties for us and Patrício made a good save. You can see the slides, they’re on the powerpoint. No (it doesn’t change). Not at all. The two of them have been very confident and of course last week Marcus scored a goal, I’m sure he would have liked to take this one but Paul was confident. I like players full of confidence.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

“Paul wanted to take it. Everyone can miss a penalty. He has scored countless penalties for us and throughout his career. It’s normal to miss one. We forget about that one and we go again. It’s simple. If you want to take it, you take it. But I took one last week so it’s no problem for him to take one this week. Like I said, it’s unfortunate he didn’t score but that’s football.” – Marcus Rashford

While Martial appears not to be in the frame for penalties, the case for his inclusion remains strong.

His goal at Molineux was the 50th of his Manchester United career, with no other colleague netting as many since the Frenchman’s debut in September 2015.

Owners of Manchester United defenders can probably consider themselves very unlucky not to capitalise on a second clean sheet in a row.

The Red Devils were in control for large spells of the game, in contrast to their previous meetings with Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have typically risen to the occasion against the top six, especially Manchester United, but they were somewhat subdued for most of Monday night.

They largely sat deep in an attempt to soak up pressure in the first half, which did initially limit Rashford and Martial’s ability to use their pace to exploit space.

However, Wolves’ creative midfield players were stifled by Manchester United, meaning that the home side were limited to playing long balls forward.

Harry Maguire was commanding in the air for Manchester United on Monday night

This made life very easy for Harry Maguire (£5.5m) in particular, who won virtually every header all night.

Also making a big impact on Manchester United’s defensive potential this season is Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m).

The right-back kept Diogo Jota (£6.5m) quiet and ensured he played a peripheral part in the match.

The Portuguese international will have disappointed his 11.3% ownership as he was forced out very wide for much of Monday night. Two matches in a row without any attacking returns for him and Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m) will certainly give their owners itchy feet especially with Teemu Pukki (£6.7m) rising in popularity.

Jota (left) had a quiet game for Wolves on Monday night

However, there are still mitigating factors for Wolves’ forwards, to some extent. Gameweek 1 saw them play very soon after a 6,000-mile round-trip to Armenia, while it has to be said that Manchester United defended very well on Monday night.

The additions of Maguire and Wan-Bissaka looked to have had a positive effect on the Red Devils’ back-line.

The right-back is also slowly offering more creativity too. In the second half, Wan-Bissaka was making more advanced runs and set up two opportunities for Jesse Lingard (£6.5m).

In the end, the only thing that could breach Manchester United’s defence was a world-class goal from Neves.

Anyone who has ever seen the Portuguese midfielder score for Wolves should have a pretty good idea of what his latest one looked like.

Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) played a ball to him on the edge of the box which he stroked marvellously into the top corner off the crossbar to a roaring Molineux ovation.

Neves scored a trademark goal against Manchester United

While such a goal will have frustrated owners of Manchester United defenders, it won’t be every week they face arguably the best finisher from distance in the Premier League.

Wolves certainly pushed the Red Devils in the closing stages, buoyed by Neves’ goal, but Solskjaer’s men held on for the point.

It makes for encouraging clean sheet potential when Crystal Palace come to Old Trafford in Gameweek 3.

Finally, there are some concerns over Matt Doherty’s (£6.0m) fitness after he limped off at half-time.

There were reports that the right wing-back was struggling in the warm-up but according to the local press, Nuno said Doherty would be “okay tomorrow.”

His departure at the interval allowed Adama Traore (£5.0m) to replace him and it was the pacey wide-man who was the spark for Wolves coming back into the game.

“Traore was able to impact the game directly. We keep trusting him, keep giving him chances to make his impact.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

      Who is the better option?

        B, but Martial might be better value

        • 4 Years

        I can’t decide on that one haha! For me, KDB would involve a hit...

      3. MosF94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        29 days, 13 hours ago

        Both. Tough to call between them; I think KDB will get more points, but he's 2m more expensive. So, both

      4. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        29 days, 13 hours ago

        I've gone with Martial as a Man U captaincy option (Sterling will always be my City cap) and a different 9.5 as an alternate captain. Son or Pepe will come in GW4 or 5

        1. Freaki
            29 days, 13 hours ago

            Yeah that’s a good idea but KDB and sterling are more likely to get those 5-0 wins and earn big amounts of power nets against low opposition than Man United but Martial is cheaper and won’t get subbed off

            1. Freaki
                29 days, 13 hours ago

          What is going on with the Rate My Team tool?
          It looks like it is the same as before the season started.
          In particular players still with scores of one or so, even though they have started every game and done well.

          I do not know what to do with Vardy, any help would be appreciated.

          I had high hopes at the beginning of the season but it turned out to be a bad choice. He still has two easy fixtures ahead (shu, BOU) which would normally be enough for me to keep him but he had just 1 shot (out of target) in first 2 games which is more concerning for me. On th other hand, there is no particular FWD with better fixture/form combination that I want to jump on (My other FWD will be Rash btw).

          Looking at Sterling captain?

          I know he has a great overall record against Bournemouth but the away game last season was a horror for him comparatively with just one shot in the box. It was blanket defence and Kun didn’t get any joy either.

            • 1 Year
            29 days, 13 hours ago

            If i remember correctly, city tend to struggle a bit more to get big scores on smaller pitches like Bournemouth's

        9. Invincibles

          Salah Sterling Perez Siggy
          Wilson Jota

          2FT, what to do - is getting Kane in essential?

          Saved 0.5mil for these kinds of price rises.

          Time to jump on the Pukki bandwagon?

          King -> Pukki

          Leaving me with auba and greenwood and 0.3 in the bank.

          Cheers!

            Pukki next 3 are horrible I won't be surprised if he's back down to .5 after those three. Lots of casuals flying in on the party but might get peanut scraps in the end.

              So West Ham away is a terrible fixture?

                29 days, 12 hours ago

                Norwich are an attacking side, they don't sit back like other weak teams in tough games. It's what makes him so valuable imo

            4. antis0cial
              • 3 Years
              29 days, 12 hours ago

              I’d do it, Chelsea home and West Ham are hardly terrible fixtures the way they are playing. He then has tough game vs city and a decent run after. I still have king but basically just hoping for pennas. Pukki is the main attacking threat for Norwich.

                That doesn't make sense.

                I've got almost the same, but no mane and stronger defence

                  Digne will outscore mount
                  Salah week outscore mane
                  Son should be quite close to Kane

              Similar to my WC but have Rashford instead of Kane which leave more money for better defence.

              Adrian only temp but suppose easy swapout to another 4.5 when Alison back.

            Should I take a hit to get Mount for Moura? Current team:

            Pope Mcgovern
            Robertson, TAA, Digne, Lundstram, Rico

                Yes, sorry if it’s not clear, I’m planning to sell Moura and ger Mount, not the other way around.

              Not this week. Lucas could outscore mount +4pts even if he is on the bench.

                Thanks, yeah I guess waiting another week to do it makes sense, would also give me another week to watch Mount before getting him.

                personally, no. Spurs will have a more attacking lineup v newcastle, Moura could start and play and do well..

                I would't rush mount yet, he's started games but they haven't won with him yet!

                  Based on comments from Lampard and his performance so far, I think Mount will be nailed and do well for 6.0 but you are probably right about Moura, I should give him the Newcastle game, is very likely to score well if he starts. Thanks!

              No Sterling, Digne possibly injured, no easy route for Martial.

              Jota, Perez and Trossard in my team.

              Want to change formation from 343 to 352.

              Enough to justify wildcard?

                I pulled the trigger for similar.
                Wanted KDB
                Wanted Kane/Son
                Wanted Pukki
                Didn't want two pool def
                Rico & CTaylor not playing

                I'm contemplating keeping Trossard on a WC, you're not interested?

                  Nothing wrong having Trossard but prefer Lanzini, Ceballos or Mount over him.

                      Kdb and Sterling

                  Haller if fit. I'm following Bundesliga and liked what I saw last season. Quality striker.

                      At some point definitely! Just looked at the fixtures and realised he faces only United from top 6 in next 10 games. Damn.

                  Cathcart, pèrez, greenwood to
                  Lundstran, ceballos, pukki

                  Could do mcginn instead of ceballos but I just prefer an arsenal player instead of villa.

                  Or

                  Zinchenko, Salah and pèrez to
                  Soyuncu, mane and son

                  Is KDB at his current price a must? Hes going to be at least 10.5m before we know it

                    9.5m for a player of his class playing for most potent attack in league was a gift from FPL towers.

                    Yep, he should have been priced at least 10.5 to start with

                      So next question is is it wise to get mane for Salah to fund the KDB move?

                    To be honest, I'd probably hold fire until you hear on Digne, and then maybe Auba to Kane for his next fixtures. Otherwise, I'm kind of a fan of C (other than the hit) - Firmino will tick away the points, Pukki will most likely be the centre of everything Norwich and Martial is looking a great FPL prospect.

                  Thoughts on what, if anything, I should use my FT on?

                  Heaton; Button
                  TAA; Shaw; Digne; Lund; (4.0 Def)
                  Salah; Sterling; Perez; Martial; (Hayden)
                  Kane; Pukki; (Greenwood)

                  Thinking:
                  A) Hold and save FT
                  B) Perez to one of Trossard or Mount

                  Emerging captaincy options in midfield (initial price): Salah (12) /Mane (11.5), Sterling (12.5), Martial (7.5). Son/Pepe (9.5) could have emerged by GW5/6, with amazing fixture runs for both

                  For those who don't mind capping cheaper options in any position with juicy fixtures: Mount (6.0), Pukki (6.5), Digne (6.0)

                  A midfield of Salah/Mane, Sterling, Son/Pepe, Martial, and Mount/McGinn/Trossard/Cantwell isn't just possible but is actually easy to fit in without premium forwards. This allows multiple captaincy options, Digne, Pukki and even a Liverpool defender or Laporte
