Man United defence stunned as Rashford misses penalty

Goals: Daniel James (£6.0m) | Jordan Ayew (£5.0m) Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m)

Assists: Anthony Martial (£7.7m) | Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m)

Bonus Points: Ayew x 3 Van Aanholt x 2 Schlupp x 1

Crystal Palace secured their first win of the 2019/20 Premier League season in dramatic fashion with a last-minute winner from Patrick van Aanholt (£5.0m) at Old Trafford. 

Manchester United came into the game off the back of an unbeaten start to 2019/20 with a 4-0 victory over Chelsea and a 1-1 draw on Monday with Wolves.

However, instead of playing with energy and confidence from their opening encounters, Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer’s side were laboured against Palace on Saturday as a missed penalty from Marcus Rashford (£8.7m) summed up the Red Devil’s afternoon. 

Last week’s draw at Wolves drew considerable debate regarding United’s penalty-takers, with Solsjkaer claiming in his post-match interview that he leaves the final decision to either Paul Pogba (£8.6m) or Rashford dependent on their own preferences. 

Manchester United had further penalty problems on Saturday afternoon

Pogba’s poorly taken spot-kick at Molineux meant it was Rashford who resumed duties from the penalty spot against Palace. It was interesting to see that Anthony Martial (£7.7m) took command of the penalty situation this time, decisively picking the ball up after Scott McTominay (£5.0m) was fouled, and thrust it into Rashford’s hands. Pogba, meanwhile, was conspicuous by his absence from the exchange.

However, Rashford was still unable to bury his spot-kick, striking the post on Saturday afternoon. That was a huge blow for Rashford’s 27.6% ownership, as he registered a Gameweek 3 score of zero points.

“Fine margins. We’re disappointed but I’m sure Marcus will look at his penalty again but he’ll definitely step up again.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Martial registered an assist for Daniel James’ (£6.0m) goal, yet the Frenchman will have been disappointed to not have added to his tally of attacking returns in 2019/20 after failing to add a clinical cutting edge on a number of occasions.

Backed by 18.6% of managers as the most-owned United midfielder, Martial certainly is passing the eye-test, and at £7.7m the French forward is certainly a value-for-money option amidst United’s attacking options. 

Martial was one of two Manchester United players to pick up an injury against Palace

However, any potential new owners may want to keep an eye on his fitness this week as Martial limped off at the end of the game.

The Manchester United website reported that he had picked up an injury in the closing stages with Solskjaer unable to provide much of an update at this early stage.

There was also some concern for Luke Shaw (£5.5m) after he was taken off in the 34th minute, but Solsjkaer confirmed the injury is not thought to be serious or long-term.

“We’ll have to wait and see. Hopefully, they won’t be too bad and maybe we can have them training during the week. We’ll do the scans tomorrow but (Shaw) felt something in his hamstring. Hopefully, it won’t be too bad and I hope he is going to be back for Southampton.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

James, a bright spark amidst an afternoon of misfortune for United, was energetic throughout the game against Palace and got a well-deserved goal in the 89th minute.

He now has attacking returns in both of his matches at Old Trafford this season and has started the last two Gameweeks in a row. That may suggest the former Swansea City midfielder can provide an alternate budget route into the Manchester United attack.

Fantasy managers had also been flocking to United’s defensive assets after some impressive displays at the back in the first two Gameeeks. The arrivals of Harry Maguire (£5.5m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.6m) looked to have stabilised the Red Devils’ backline.

However, their failure to keep a clean sheet against a team that offered little going forward might reminder to managers of how far United still have to come. There was also frustration for Wan-Bissaka owners as he picked up a yellow card in the second half.

Solskjaer’s men spent the majority of the first half camped in Palace’s final third and were caught off guard by the first counter-attack of the match.

Ayew capitalised on Manchester United’s high line in the first half

Palace had been resilient in the face of considerable pressure in the opening stages, but it was Jordan Ayew (£5.0m) who found the breakthrough for Palace to put them 1-0 up against the run of play.

The Eagles’ lack of goalscoring impetus aside from Wilfried Zaha (£6.9m) is well documented, though Ayew’s performance and goalscoring contribution could suggest he is capable of involving himself in Palace’s attacking efforts in 2019/20. 

Van Aanholt also reminded Fantasy managers what he is capable of, sending Palace’s away end into a state of euphoria with a winner in injury time. The Dutch defender has always held an attacking threat, averaging nearly five goals a season since 2015/16, and he was once again on target to secure a vital win for Palace. 

For Hodgson’s men, this was an extremely important result, yet it was also a timely reminder that the Eagles, on their day, can be a match for any of the Premier League’s elite sides if they show the resilience they displayed at times in 2018/19.

Gary Cahill (£4.5m) was solid at the back alongside Martin Kelly (£4.0m), which is good news for the Fantasy appeal of the latter, who started ahead of Scott Dann (£4.5m).

The arrival of the ex-Chelsea man on a free transfer could potentially revitalise Palace as a defensive unit worthy of investment – a prospect that may have been discarded by managers following the departure of Wan-Bissaka to United. 

This was an afternoon that belonged to Palace and their resilient attitude in the face of extreme pressure, yet after just three Premier League games of 2019/20, a familiar line of questioning may be pointed towards United.

Defensive frailties have once again been exposed, and they were not too ruthless going forward either. That may lead to further scrutiny of their Fantasy assets in the upcoming Gameweeks.

        My decision to WC rests on KDB and Kane C performing

        1. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I’m bringing in Kdb but he is cheaper than Kane

          12.5 12 9.5 is enough on premiums imo

          Kane likely to make my head turn this GW tho - not looking forward to the spurs game. Arranged a family BBQ to distract me.

          I’m staying away tho coz I know as soon as I bring him in he’ll get injured (Sod’s law since I’ve made a thing about it)

      I think it leaves you very inflexible.
      I would downgrade Kane and upgrade elsewhere. If you're not planning on captaining him then I think the money would be better spent that way

      1. Ynwalfc
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I’ll see how Kane performs against Newcastle and keep an eye on Jota and Barnes

    8. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      McGinn over Ceballos unless you plan to explode with double Arsenal (Pepe/Auba/Lacazette) IMO. 3-4-3 is a more solid formation than 3-5-2 with Cantwell/Dendoncker/McGinn/Ceballos/Neves/Moutinho as the 5th mid.

  2. Jurgen Flopp
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Any Arsenal fans care to shed some light on Dani Ceballos? Is he worth holding for the kind run of fixtures or do we think he was found out yesterday?

    Is Cantwell a better option thus enabling Kean to Haller?

    1. Whats the Huth

    4. ALegendJ

      Mount if fit

    5. g40steve

      Liverpool not the game to judge, don’t think Chelsea would of done any better.

      Related to this - is no10 his regular role? Appears to be behind the striker(s) on Motd highlights.

    7. Arse Biscuit
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Ceballos is at Arsenal a month. He might need some time.
      I have him, I benched him yesterday but I'll keep hold of him and see which Özil shows up and how that affects things

  3. Badger Badger Mushroom Mush…
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Did Perez to Mount, drunkenly, last night.

    Robinson seems more of a risk to my team.

    Robinson > McGinn for -4?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Robinson needs to leave.
      Still not sure on McGinn
      I’m undecided on cellobas or Mount- if I go Mount I’d have to take a -4
      But perhaps worth it

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Both decent moves really

    3. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      McGinn decent 5th mid. Has a deep role vs top half teams (still mild assist potential though) but attacks and shoots a lot vs bottom half teams. Fixture dependant, good form, solid 5.5 gets the regular starts.

  4. Alberto Tomba
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Martial's stats not looking great in the above article then?

    If we don't hear he will return to start next week, Martial -> Mount may be popular amongst those of us who got him on WC last week.
    Any thoughts?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      He’s a stat buster though. He doesn’t create or receive a high volume of chances however when he does he is intelligent and they are always high quality.

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Will wait on injury news for both.

      But yes, Martial to Mount looking like a possibility this week.

      Mount's risen in price last night, so no rush

    3. ALegendJ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Being classified as a united midfielder while playing number 9 at sub 8m fpl price, he stays in my team as long as he is fit

      1. Alberto Tomba
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Cheers.

        Yeah it sounds great in principle, but does he actually look in great form to score goals, if not, there are other players that do/will - i.e. mount

  5. luk46

    A - Wilson > Haller for free
    B - Sigurdsson + Wilson > KDB + below 7m for a hit
    C - hold and decide after gw4 & international break

    Mount's flag not stop his rise?
    Or did he rise whilst flagged?

    ... if the latter don't understand getting him in when could be injured

    1. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      He was close to rising before the flag. Besides the casuals don’t care about flags

    2. Prisoner B5160-8
      • 1 Year

      Rose whilst flagged. Teetering for a while so I left it. Still worth waiting on, imo.

    Guys. I have had the worst GW so far in my history of playing this game. 9 points from 7 players. Dropped from 100k to 1.9m.

    Anyone top that? 🙁

    1. Jurgen Flopp
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Relax. It's a long slog. I'm in the same boat. I got rid of Salah TAA McGinn Heaton but that enabled me to bring in KDB Pukki.

      Have faith in your team and be patient!

      1. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Indeed. I have Sterling (c), Kane, KDB and King to go today. Hopefully there is some magic to be found in these 4!

    Thoughts on this hit (-4)

    Laporte to Emerson
    Joelinton to Pukki

    1. lordkippe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I would keep Laporte

      1. Rhodes your boat

        Downgrade digne instead?

        1. Team Cruel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          I would keep Digne

      2. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years

        Or martial to mount

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I guess you really want Pukki. I think every player you mention could do better than Pukki going forward.
          I own Pukki, and you should get him in, but need to find another way. Would downgrade Digne out of those you mentioned, but not ideal

          1. Rhodes your boat
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Just thinking he’s ruining my season at the moment! But hoping he can’t keep it up!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        At least wait u til the city game, but I'd back city defence too atm

    2. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      If you're getting rid of Laporte, go the whole hog and really downgrade him so you can upgrade someone else later. Soyuncu/Lundstram or someone

      That’s the spirit, bring back salah for Mané to return next GW, then bring back mane and so on

      1. ElBuffalo20

        If both stay fit, I still think salah outscores him

    3. Netley Lucas

      Sticking, had 2 really good chances, just wasn't his day.

    4. Ynwalfc

      Got Salah back on my wildcard, he looked awesome against Arsenal and is taking penalty’s

      Hopefully they were looking more than 1 GW into the future.

    6. HollywoodXI

      Sticking. It’ll be Mane’s turn next week.

    7. The_Fish

      Seemed like a stupid move at the time, feels even dafter now.

    On FPL it says average points are 25, is this a week where FFS is doing better or worse than FPL average?

    1. noquarternt
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Imagine better. Most will have Pukki and Salah with a few Cantwells and Wesleys sprinkled in.

      1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
        • 2 Years

        Fair enough. Cheers

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Better you’d assume with Salah, Pukki, Martial

    not over fussed if martial is out for a while

    balbuena to laporte

    tony to mcginn

    might do it anyway

    1. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      -4

  19. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

    Mount or Abraham ?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Depends on rest of for/mids?

  20. EL tridente
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 21 days ago

    A) Robinson to Mcginn?
    or
    B) Robinson and King to Cantwell and Haller for -4?

  21. BoomXhakaLaca1
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Robinson to Cantwell obvious enough decision?

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Not if it means playing Cantwell every week

      1. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Not every week no have, Montoya, Lund and Ake to cover for defence and have Salah, Mart, KDB and Perez to cover mid

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes

      Pope Button
      Zinch VDJ Digne Guilbert Lund
      Salah Sterling Robinson Dend Pérez
      Kane Wood King

      I have 2 FT & bank: 0£

      Pérez + Wood —> Mount + Wesley + 0,6m

      Any other ideas?? ( I don’t want Robinson anymore )

      1. de quincey

        Cantwell?

    • de quincey

      Would you get Siggy out now for KDB?
      Or hold Siggy for home match vs. Wolves?

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Hold siggy???? Have you watched the games

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Listen to this man. As a Siggy owner I couldn't agree more.

        2. de quincey
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I have.
          But, I'd need to do 2 transfers for 8 point hit to get KDB in and Siggy and Fraser out.

      2. The_Fish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        I’d be looking to get rid of him.

      3. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Hold Siggy, one less casual to worry about

      4. ajones1608

        Without a doubt, no debate there for me

    • FOO FIGHTER
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Opinions on Jota? Both him and Jimenez have not been all that so far this season and yes they faced tough oposition (well UTD losing at home to Palace seems to suggest otherwise) I just have a sinking feeling that both may not live up to the season they had last time round.

        Both have also now dropped in price and waiting for players to haul, how long do you wait and continue to see their price plummet? With all the targets in mind and their prices going up becomes a problem when you are in a situation where you 0.1m short to make the desired changes. My best moves so far was getting rid of both Perez and Vardy. Vardy got a goal yesterday but not sure that is good enough based on blanking the first 2 GW's.

        Anyway, going to see what Jota does later and if not convincing he will have to go.

          • 3 Years
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I'm considering bringing Jota in this week

          1. FOO FIGHTER
              1 month, 21 days ago

              I am considering removing Jota for Barnes to take up his spot. We will see how results pan out today. Would rather have an inform player in my team at this point.

              I think Nuno is prioritising the Euoropa. Jota may just become a rotation nightmare if he doe not delivering on the pitch.

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                Jota is in form.

          2. Bob_the_builder
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Haven't come around to addressing Jota in my squad due to more pressing issues. Do think he is going to come good soon making the 6.5 price bracket more competitive.

            1. Superkitten
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Fwiw, I dumped Jimenez last week to fund Pukki. Europa League having a detrimental effect on Wolves all round.

            Come on Sterling, KDB, Otamendi, Kane & Dendoncker! 30 points between you at least

            WC not activated but this is very tempting

            Pope 4m
            Vvd Laporte AWB Pieters Lund
            Salah Sterling KDB Martial Dendockner
            Pukki Barnes Greenwood

            Thoughts?

            sunday night gw1 knew id made an error leaving sterling out so the solution in my mind was

            kdb to raz

            vardy to pukki

            exact money

            pukki was just an enabler ,i feel got seriously lucky getting pukki in and perhaps that underlines how much luck plays a part in this great game...

            Save next GW or Rashford > Haller?

            Pope
            VVD, Digne,Lundstrum
            Sterling,KDB,Martial, Mount
            Kane,Rashford,Pukki

            Button,Cantwell,Elmohamady,Hanley 0.4m 1FT

              I personally couldn't stand the sight of Rashford in my team. His attitude yesterday was like he's some kind of legend who's doing them a favour to play for them.

              1. The 12th Man
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                In all honesty I don’t know why I went there(Martial and Rashford) last minute change from Mane and Greenwood.
                Think I’m going to make a downgrade to gather funds for a Salah return in wk 5 against Newcastle.

                  What mid would you upgrade to Salah?

                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    Probably Kane,Martial > Salah,7.6 -4.

                    I’ll give Harry 2 games.

            2. conorbon
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              I would hold, Rashford is a good player and they will bounce back.

            1 Free transfer, 0.2mil in the bank

            Ryan, Button
            AWB, VVD, Digne, Zinchenko, Lundstram
            Lucas Moura, Salah, Sterling, KDB, Dendoncker
            Pukki, King, Greenwood

            thoughts?

            1. Bob_the_builder
              • 3 Years

              Moura to Lanzini perhaps.

            2. conorbon
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 21 days ago

              King to Wesley
