In-demand Jimenez, Rashford and Martial on the scoresheet in Europe

We round up the key Fantasy talking points from the three UEFA Europa League games that involved Premier League clubs on Wednesday and Thursday.

Manchester United 3-0 Partizan Belgrade

  • Goals: Mason Greenwood (£4.3m), Anthony Martial (£7.7m), Marcus Rashford (£8.5m)
  • Assists: Rashford, Ashley Young (£5.4m)

Manchester United waltzed into the knockout stages of the Europa League with two games to spare thanks to a performance of dynamism and flair from their front three.

Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) was the star of the show, his pace and directness causing havoc in the Partizan backline.

He set up United’s opener when his ball into the area was calmly dispatched by Mason Greenwood (£4.3m) and rounded off the scoring with an emphatic finish from an Ashley Young (£5.4m) pass.

In between came the goal of the night from Anthony Martial (£7.7m), who pounced on a loose ball from the visitors before beating two players, holding off a third and flicking the ball home as goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic advanced.

The scoreline should have been more emphatic.

United had seven shots on target to the Serbs’ zero and Rashford could easily have walked off at half-time with a hat-trick to his name were it not for Stojkovic’s saves and his own profligacy.

Whether manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is bold enough to field all three of the attackers in the league remains to be seen. Partizan’s defensive shortcomings need to be factored in, but the speed and chemistry of the trio produced a heady mix that will have many a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) boss considering a dabble.

The 13%-owned Rashford is finding some form coming in from the left flank, while midfielder Martial (6.9%) continues to be deployed as a central striker.

Both are in the top 20 for transfers-in ahead of Gameweek 12’s visit from Brighton.

As for Greenwood, his bargain bucket price tag prompted just over a million to invest in him by Gameweek 2, but limited minutes from the bench has produced no goals and a quarter of a million drop in ownership since then.

Solskjaer made only four changes to the side that lost at Bournemouth last weekend, with Daniel James (£6.2m) one of the few to miss out. He stayed on the bench last night and it would be a major surprise if Greenwood was preferred again on Sunday. James, after all, has scored 43 FPL points – second only to Rashford (58) at United this season.

The manager was just happy to praise all three of his starters post-match, saying:

We know they are a dangerous trio, with players behind them who can provide chances. Well done to Mason for a very, very calm finish. He was composed and waited for the keeper. The second one was from Anthony and was probably the skill of the night. Then it was great to see Marcus finishing with his left foot.

Despite denying the visitors a single shot on target all night, United’s backline rode their luck at times, with full-backs Young and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) pushed so high up the pitch that they left huge amounts of space for Partizan to exploit on the break.

Brighton might prove better equipped to punish a defence with just two league clean sheets – and none since Gameweek 5 – to their name, although the Seagulls have scored only once in their last four away matches.

They will face a backline down to its bare bones, however.

Marcos Rojo (£4.8m) replaced the injured Victor Lindelof (£5.4m) last night, while Harry Maguire (£5.4m) played the full 90 minutes despite picking up a knock in the second half.

Solskjaer provided an update on the centre-half, as well as influential midfielder Scott McTominay (£5.1m), who went off with an ankle problem after 75 minutes.

I think Harry will be okay. He finished the game anyway. Scott is more of a concern, so let’s see how he recovers in the next few days. He said he was going to be okay out on the pitch and he said ‘I’ll be fine’. He’s tough, but he had to come off. But I hope he’ll recover for Sunday, but I don’t know.

With Young suspended for the Brighton match, Solskjaer has limited options at the back and could well be forced to give young left-back Brandon Williams (£4.0m) his first-ever start in the league unless more seasoned performers prove their fitness.

Lindelof probably holds the key there. Should he be fit, Rojo could move across to left-back. Phil Jones (£4.8m) is another who could come in, although he’s not played a single minute in the league this season.

Solskjaer will hope the players further up the pitch can continue last night’s excellent form to offset those defensive concerns.

Fantasy managers buying into Rashford and Martial will be of exactly the same mind.

Manchester United XI: Romero, Maguire, Rojo, Fred (Garner 63), Young, Wan-Bissaka, McTominay (Lingard 75), Mata, Martial, Rashford (Pereira 67), Greenwood.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 Slovan Bratislava

  • Goal: Raul Jimenez (£7.3m)
  • Assist: Adama Traore (£5.1m)

A late winner from Raul Jimenez (£7.3m) edged Wolves ever closer to the Europa League’s final 32 on a tricky night at Molineux.

The striker headed home Adama Traore‘s (£5.1m) cross in the early stages of 12 minutes of time added on after Jimenez had accidentally kicked defender Kenan Bajric in the head.

Bajric had to be stretchered off with concussion and the Mexican’s later goal celebration was a muted and contrite affair, as is suddenly the trend among innocent-but-guilty offenders.

Wolves controlled much of the game, only to be frustrated by a resolute Bratislava, with visiting goalkeeper Dominik Greif setting the tone when he saved a Ruben Neves (£5.3m) penalty not long after the break.

That miss could have major Fantasy repercussions, as Wolves boss Nuno Espirto Santo explained after the match.

Today was Ruben’s turn, he didn’t make it, next time it’s going to be Raul (Jimenez), hopefully, he will make it – this is the moment that we have to decide. We practise a lot in the training sessions, we have designated penalty takers, today it was Ruben, he was not happy because he didn’t kick well, he’s conscious of that and he must work hard.

Jimenez, with two goals and as many assists from his last four league starts, is now up to 12.3% FPL ownership and in the top ten for Gameweek 12 transfers-in. His growing army of Fantasy fans will be delighted to hear he now has another string to his point-scoring bow.

Greif also did well to deny efforts from Joao Moutinho (£5.3m) and Matt Doherty (£6.0m) as the home side’s pressure threatened to come to nothing.

The fact that Doherty was even playing was a major plus point for his 3.2% FPL ownership, however, as the wing-back had been a doubt after picking up a knee issue in the Gameweek 11 draw at Arsenal.

Espirito Santo had made just three changes from that match, with striker Diogo Jota (£6.1m) an enforced one as he sat out last night’s tie due to European suspension.

He looks likely to return for the weekend derby with Aston Villa, as should wing-back Jonny (£5.4m), who only came on for the final five minutes against the Slovaks.

Wolves XI: Patricio, Kilman, Coady, Dendocker, Vinagre (Jonny 90+7), Neves, Moutinho, Doherty, Neto (Cutrone 69), Jimenez, Traore (Bennett 90+10).

Vitoria Guimaraes 1-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Shkodran Mustafi (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Nicolas Pepe (£9.3m)

Arsenal’s defensive fragility was exposed once again as they conceded an injury-time equaliser that scuppered their chances, for now at least, of securing guaranteed progression from the Europa League group stages.

The Gunners dominated possession in Portugal on Wednesday, but did little with it until Shkodran Mustafi (£5.2m) headed home Nicolas Pepe‘s (£9.3m) free-kick with ten minutes to play.

That should have been that, only for the home side to produce a late rally and an even later goal that made it four matches on the trot that Arsenal have had to make do with a draw.

Manager Unai Emery made eight changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Wolves in Gameweek 11, handing the captain’s armband to defender Rob Holding (£4.5m).

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (11.0m), together with back-in-favour playmaker Mesut Ozil (£7.2m), didn’t even travel.

One of the few potential starters for Saturday evening’s tough trip to Leicester City, Kieran Tierney (£5.4m), played the full 90 minutes, although investing in any member of an Arsenal defence with just two clean sheets this season looks ill-advised at present.

In attack, Pepe also started and finished the match; worrying news for his 3.0% ownership after he was dropped in Gameweek 11, playing no part in a league game for the first time this season as a result.

The 1.7% who own Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) will have been rather more heartened to see their man given only a 25-minute run-out from the bench in Portugal.

Midfielder Daniel Ceballos (£5.4m) did start, but had to be replaced after 54 minutes with a hamstring problem and Emery couldn’t provide a positive assessment post-match, saying:

He has a small injury, but I don’t think he is going to be available this week.

The Gunners have indeed since confirmed that Ceballos will miss Gameweek 12 as further assessment is awaited.

Arsenal have a decent run of fixtures to come once the Leicester clash is out of the way, with a Gameweek 17 visit from Manchester City by far the toughest test they’ll face until after Christmas.

But a lack of attacking bite – they’ve been averaging just a goal a game over the last five fixtures – and that defensive frailty means few of their assets are attracting much Fantasy interest at present.

Indeed, while no Gunner is is the top 30 for Gameweek 12 purchases, both Aubameyang and Ceballos are experiencing relatively significant sales.

Arsenal XI: Martínez, Mustafi, Sokratis, Holding, Maitland-Niles, Willock (Torreira 78), Ceballos (Guendouzi 54), Tierney, Pépé, Martinelli, Saka (Lacazette 65).

          Well said, I imagine.

          I’d roll the transfer, especially if you have a decent bench to cover for Pep roulette

          I assumed he’d had more than one lesson 🙂

      • Always Captain Kun

      Play Rico or the Lord

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        Im playing both, I would prioritise Rico

      2. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        Rico has a higher chance of a clean sheet.
        Lundstram has a higher ceiling for attacking returns, and I guess in better form.

        Depends if you’re a safety first manager, or a lion heart.

      3. iL PiStOlErO
          4 days, 11 hours ago

          His Lordship

        • Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Rico.

          On set pieces, Bournemouth have kept 3 clean sheets in a row.

          1. HamezMace
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 11 hours ago

            You know I love you Camzy, but those consecutive clean sheets count for nothing against the ultimate force of nature. Andy Carroll.

                    Son has burned me so much and I have the Tom to do Mount to him or even McGinn. I think Son can go either way.

                    Anyone considering Digne as a short term punt?

                    Ota > Digne for the next 2 GW's jumps on v nice fixtures (even for Everton!) and then its an easy switch to a Liverpool DF from GW14 (BHA home)

                    Who drops to the bench? Will play if Mount doesn't

                    a) Lowton v WHU (H)
                    b) Rico v NEW (A)
                    c) Lund v TOT (A)

                    I'm currently on c although doubt that's popular around here

                      4 days, 11 hours ago

                      C is very popular here

                        • 7 Years
                        4 days, 11 hours ago

                        Yup what I said 🙂

                          4 days, 11 hours ago

                          I thought you meant that you doubted Lundstram would be the popular answer.

                          I mean, if you’re going to bench him, and I understand why you, or anyone else would, he has to be first sub.

                          1. Fuddled FC
                            • 7 Years
                            4 days, 11 hours ago

                            😮 Yep he would def be 1st sub but I've just put him back in and dropped Lowton to 1st sub! Ooo it's a tricky one

                              • 5 Years
                              4 days, 11 hours ago

                              Yes it’s a noodle scratcher this week.
                              I’m starting TAA, Lundstram and Lowton. Benching Soyuncu and Rico.
                              Could easily see the two on bench getting 12-15 points between them, but equally confident in those I’m starting

                                  And bench two of Mount, Maddison, Kane and Lacazette?

                      Heaton
                      TAA Maguire Tomori Chilwell
                      Winks Henderson
                      Sancho Mount/Maddison Sterling
                      Kane (Though Tammy deserves a start on club form imo)

                      Surprised by the amount of people picking Ox, he’s been quite poor apart from the goals imo. Though I do understand there’s a huge lack of midfield options. If Loftus-Cheek regains his form when he returns he should slot right into a midfield 3

                      hold for two transfers over the international break?

                        Hold. I hate making transfers that put my squad budget out of whack so would rather work in 2FT swaps if possible. Auba out gives you funds that you can use immediately next week with maximum flexibility.

                            Holding onto Auba for the next four. Not getting Vardy.

                            This week (for free):

                            Maupay + Yarmo
                            to
                            Mousset + Maddison

                            So I get Leicester attack in. Thoughts?

                              Not liking Yarmo atm, was impressed to begin with but think he might deceive a bit. Would rather Harvey Barnes/McGinn/Grealish

                            Pick one trio:

                              Abraham isn't optional at that price with good fixtures.

                                what if it was abraham, pukki and barnes?
                                or
                                abraham, king, buendia

                              One word answer: NO! 180k means you are not too far away. Auba Jimmi and Cant to Martial enough for this week. You have Soy so no need to move Ota. Sterling to Mane wait until next week

                            why are people keeping kdb ahead of sterling? sterling has the opportunity for major point haul and kdb likely to be playing a little further back if d silva, rodrigo out?

                              Probably cash invested, hard to get back

                              People are concerned they have ‘value tied up’ and forget who is the more explosive and attractive asset..

                                I'm actually considering switching Kdb to sterling myself - but will wait for a quiet week. It does mean getting a cheaper mid then Son.

                              Gundo Bilva can play defensive. Stones is back and Pep will want KDB as a creator.

                                My thinking also, another 11-14 pointer.

                                  I think:
                                  Cancello Stones Ota Mendy
                                  Fernandinho

                              better value. Rodrigo back after IB. but I agree, Sterling higher ceiling

                              De Bruyne is more consistent than Sterling. Sterling's not as effective in big games for me, gets shot shy or his shooting can be wayward compared to a lot of finisher but especially Kun the King.

                              It’s a tough decision for me. Defo getting rid of one.

                              For me it’s between
                              A. Sterling + Tielemans
                              B. KDB + Maddison

                              ... Id slightly prefer to keep sterling but defo prefer Maddison than Tielemans.

                                Similar.
                                Kdb and Son vs Martial/Mads Sterling

                                  Don't own Sterling though - just affects my mid of choice

                            They won't start but what % chance of Dilva and Alonso seeing gametime this GW?

                              Lampy said he had been carefull with Emerson since he was back. Offcourse he said Alonso Does a good job to. But for me, i am switching him out.
                              The danger of putting him in my squad, and
                              him getting cameo minutes at the end of matches is something i dont like.

                                I only got him last week! Not selling either until after international break but hope Dilva's grand by then. Prob arting him today, not 100% ruled out and a cameo could be better than Hayden v Bournemouth, only just.

                              I'm getting rid of both before deadline.
