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

    I have Martial, but any good reason not to go for the Rashford double up?

    1. AndyCook
      • 3 Years

      8.5 isn’t that cheap and he appears to be playing quite wide, no penalty box touches last night

      You'll want that money in midfield soon

        Cheers - I didn’t watch the game ap actually thinking about getting KDB instead. Right call?

      I don't see "double up" as a relevant concept. If you're thinking of getting Rashford over Vardy or Wilson, then it's probably a decent move.

      1. Andy_Social

        Now you're asking Kev or Rashy?? Kev, obviously.

        Rashford on the wing not going to see him with many hauls.

        spending 16 mil on an inconsistent utd attack seems like a bad idea, who would you have to give up?

      which one of these three would go to your bench for next games?

      Expecting Kelly to keep starting?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Nope

      2. T-BOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Would love to know who Roy prefers out of Dann and Kelly. As soon as Sakho and/or Tomkins are fit they are both on the chopping block

        1. Luka - Man Like Serbia
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          For sure. Tomkins (CBR) /Sakho (CBL) is without doubt our best pairing and would be straight back in (we have great record when both play) but they are also both very injury prone throughout a season - hence Roy also signing Cahill for extra cover.

      3. Luka - Man Like Serbia
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Kelly maybe for next few matches, although Cahill could displace him soon at CB he is still the only RB cover we have for Ward.

    7. KingOllie

      Remember Kane vs Cardiff(H) last season?

        My worst decision of the season.

      2. thomashl

        Stuck between getting him or Martial in for -4 this gameweek. I guess -8 would be too much

      3. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        For sure, it was hard but I ignored him completely and captained Lacazette at Fulham, which turned out pretty well.

        1. KingOllie
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          im doing the same with Sterling this gwk, hope it ends the same way

          1. KingOllie
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            ps look at sterlings stats vs bournemouth !

          2. avfc82

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            I'm considering the same, can see them beating Bournemouth comfortably.

          3. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

            • 1 Year
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Considered Sterling TC, but definitely holding that for the DGWs instead

            My GW3 (C) has been Sterling since preseason. Captain Hindsight says GWs 1 and 2 as well, but those were coin tosses with Salah so I'm not bothered

            1. KingOllie
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              8 goals 2 assists in 7 games vs Bou.

              And bournemouth are gonna try and play at home = prime for a city thrashing.

              1. avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                Bournemouth have surely gotta attack more than last season's 1-0 when Mahrez scored the winner. The stats were ridiculous. City had 82% possession, and Bournemouth didn't have a shot!

      How many desired transfers warrant a wildcard? (I'm serious)

      1. The_Fish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        -12 or worse.

        1. thomashl
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Right? I have like five changes I want to make, and I'd like to save my wc but feel the price rices will make it hard to get that team by using FTs only

      2. T-BOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Usually 5-6 or more

      3. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        It's a serious question. My personal 'red line' is WC rather than take a -16 hit. Maybe -12.

      4. aapoman
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        -12. At -8 it's close

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Looking at my -8 for GW3 and wondering how it got to this

          Still doesn't feel worth a WC though

      5. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        -12 or more

      7. thomashl
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        How's this WC team:

        Pope (Button)
        AWB VvD Digne KWP (Lundstram)
        McGinn Salah Sterling Martial (Dendo)
        Kane Pukki (Greenwood)

        0.2 itb

        Would like another MCI asset but can't see how

      8. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        If you WC now, you'll probably have many more weeks over the next 16 where you will have a number of desired transfers too.

      9. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…

      Biggest FFS myth so far this season: Pukki's upcoming fixtures are very tough!

      1. Game Over
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Form over fixtures every time.

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Agree. Tough for Norwich, nightmare for their shonky defence, but the way he takes his goals - he can score against anyone.

      3. T-BOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Agreed. Chelsea have one of the worst xGa in the league and West Ham have the worst!! Granted City is a tough fixture but he could jag something there and then he is on a glorious run..

        My god he passes the eye test

      4. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Before the Leicester game, Chelsea had conceded 2+ goals in each of their last 5 games, their defence isn’t exactly tight, Pukki could easily bag another goal.

      5. Zlatanzo
          3 months, 1 day ago

          That's all I hear about. Chelsea home and WHU away are by no means tough to score against.

        • Sune
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Stallone in Goal
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Pukki is fixture proof!

          • Jarvish Scott Talent
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Every game is a tough fixture for Norwich, but they look like they will score goals regardless.

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Can see him being this season's Mitrovic. The defence will concede for fun and they'll prolly go down, but Pukkers here will keep banging them in.

          • Jam0sh
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            He won't score every match but he scored also against Liverpool. 2/3 goals per 5 matches would be quite ok for that price

            I can see both sides.

            Good price, playing the best football of his career... but Chelsea have improved since Kante returned to the starting eleven, their poor xGA is heavily influenced by the United 4-0 when he was benched, then its a good fixture at West Ham, followed by the hardest.

            At 6.7 tho, its probably worth it, although I won't be moving for him this week.

          How does this WC team look like? :

          Pope - Button
          KWP - AWB - Van Dijk - Dunk - Lundstram
          Mané - Sterling - KDB - Mount - Cantwell
          Kane - Pukki - Greenwood

              Thanks!
              Would you pick Dunk over Soyuncu?

                I'd pick Soyuncu

            Needs some Digne! Otherwise very solid

            I'm not sure that KWP will be nailed. Foyth's suspension is over. I personally would like to have one Everton's defender (Digne if healty or Mina). Rest is in accordance with this week template:)

          Morning, thoughts for coming game week?

          Pope
          Virgil, Digne, KWP, Montoya
          Salah, Sterling, Trossard, Cebellos
          Pukki, Kane

          Button, Lundstram, Dendo, Greenwood

          2.9 itb

          Kane or Sterling C

              look what Pukki did to that Newcastle defence so dont get your 'for sure' comment at all. I will be mostly captaining Sterling this season I feel but going Kane this week 'for sure'! 😉

        • Atimis

          A guy in my mini league made a Alisson to Ederson transfer after the Pool game in GW 1.

          He then made a Simpson to Lundstram transfer last night.
          But he still has a FT left. HOW??

          Is this a glitch?

          Thanks.

          Any price rise experts already?

          Will Rashford rise once or twice before deadline?

            • 6 Years

            Max once. People have already made their move on Pukki so less interest in Rashford.

          I managed to squeeze in 5 premium players into my team (Kane Sterling Mane Martial KDB)

          However as a result of that i have to play 2 out of this lot every week

          Montoya
          Lundstram
          Soyuncu
          Cantwell

          Do you guys think it is viable or too imbalanced?

            I'm facing the same problem. For me Martial is the least important of these 5 right now, with all the others having double points potential in most games, so I've left him out. Kane is the most likely to leave my team soon and I'll look at maybe Laca, and Martial, then.

              How's this WC team:

              Pope (Button)
              AWB VvD Digne KWP (Lundstram)
              McGinn Salah Sterling Martial (Dendo)
              Kane Pukki (Greenwood)

              0.2 itb

              Would like another MCI asset but can't see how. Also want to have Martial since I'm a fan.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Got Pukki in for Wilson, thinking I may just save the other FT and look at getting Son/KDB soon, via downgrading Perez (mcginn maybe?) and upgrading Siggy most likely. 1.3 ITB 1FT

              Pope // 4.0
              TAA VVD Digne Zinchenko // Rico
              Salah Sterling Sigurdsson Perez // Dendoncker
              Pukki Jota // Greenwood

              Cheers boyos. One last chance for Sig / Perez?

              A Walker, Ceballos, Rashford

              B Montoya, Martial, Wilson (really think Wilson will be a great asset after the City fixture).

              Is it a viable tactic to have one of Cantwell and Dendoncker start every week?

              1. BellyKlopp
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                they'll probably average 3 pts each so depends if other players can make up for it?

                • 3 Years

                If it means 3 or 4 premiums yeah (KDB can count if 4)

                • 7 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                I think so, if it enables 10 stronger players around them.

                1. aapoman
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 1 day ago

                  Hmm could get this for -4 if i downgrade Perez to Cantwell

                  Pope (4.0)
                  Robbo Digne Zinchenko Soyuncu (Lundstram)
                  Salah Sterling Martial Dendoncker (Cantwell)
                  Kane Wilson (Greenwood)

              4. Jarvish Scott Talent
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                I think so - they rotate pretty well. I wouldn't expect a lot of returns though, even with the rotation, but frees up funds nicely. Other downside is it takes away another midfield slot, and that's where the value appears to be elsewhere.

                    Thanks! Also reluctant to get Salah out – I did it once last season, of course it had to be when he went mad and scored three

                      Salah or Sterling will top the scoring list this season again. Salah is just too good. He was obvs tired after 120 mins. Should do better this week.
