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).

    Start McGinn away at Wolves or CHO home against Palace?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      CHO

    2. Ostrich Baby
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      CHO - hopefully Mount's injury means he'll start.

      1. Pieterke30
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        I think Mount will start.

      2. Bob_the_builder
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        That's the primary concern. Benched McGinn for CHO last week and it proved to be the wrong call.

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Start CHO with McGinn first on bench

  2. SirStevieG
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Bench 1:

    A) Tomori (CRY)
    B) TAA (MCI)
    C) Lundstrum (tot)
    D) Rico (new)
    E) Pieters (WHU)

    1. Ostrich Baby
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      E or C.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      E

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      D for me... Lundstram is a box to box player who scores goal.. But if you feel like Spurs will keep a CS then definetely bench Lundstram

  3. Monya Meow Meow
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Any news on Guilbert?
    Unsure to put him or Soy as first sub...

    Already playing Lund & Rico.

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Have him, he is still falgged but keeping him for sure. Good player. He is third on my bench this gw

      1. Monya Meow Meow
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks mate

  4. Ostrich Baby
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    aguero and Dilva to Jimenez and Salah yeh or neh?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I would keep Kun

      1. fr3d
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Why?

        Never scored at Anfield and 50/50 with Jesus most weeks

        1. Ostrich Baby
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          this is why I'm thinking of getting rid - but his explosiveness is still tempting. Could also get Sterling in instead of Salah (already have Mane and KDB), but I really like Liverpool's fixtures.

        2. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Really? Thought he had a good record against the top teams

          1. Planet_Marss
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 5 days ago

            never scored at anfield.. cos hardly anyone ever scores at anfield from city.. city generally dont do too well there.. the truth is if citys to get something in this game you better bet aguero is in thick of it.
            sterling also has never scored at anfield (apart from when he played for liverpool).. in fact sterling never scored against liverpool so by the same logic.. people should be getting rid of sterling.

            typically sane is the one with a good record against pool but aguro has scored against them a fair few times (at home though) which is more than sterling owners can say.

            pep would never not start aguero in a game like that.. people are now just being stupid. He's safe to start this week for sure. after this week fixtures are pretty tough also,, if all goes okay at anfield i see aguero start alot in the league for the harder fixtures. afterall jesus is their sub striker and his quality would never match agueros despite what pep says in the press.

            im not an agguero owner.. but people dont paint the full picture when they say "he's never scored at anfield"

  5. Lev Yashin

    OK, last piece of panic from me today:

    Still "need" to use an FT

    Ryan
    TAA, Rico, Lund
    Mané, KdB, Martial, CHO
    Vardy, Tammy, Jimenez

    Button, Tomori, Mendy, Saka

    1) Button -> playing keeper?
    2) Mendy to Robbo for the decent run but how to manage the LIV v MCI game?

    1. Connor Wickham
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      2 and play over lund

      1. Lev Yashin
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Probably, yeah.

    Gazzaniga, Ryan

    TAA, Tomori, Lascelles, (Lunds, Kelly)

    Mane, KDB, D. James, (Saka)

    Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez

      + Mount

      1. Connor Wickham
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Probs be looking at adding Robbo, Son or maybe Salah if has a decent week

        1. lindeg
          • 1 Year

          Cheers mate

    3. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      possible James to Son or go LFC double defence after this GW ??

      1. lindeg
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Cheers

    4. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I would look to get in Robertson.. for sure... then use leftover cash to upgrade James

      1. lindeg
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Cheers

  8. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Best option...
    A. CHO to Son
    B. CHO to Martial

    Both allow Boly to Robbo, the latter allows Kdb to sterling if I want soon.

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Depends if you need the extra cash by picking Martial. I got Son. But I might downgrade him to Martial if need be.

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        I don't need the cash unless I want Sterling over Kdb. But as you say - could always downgrade or vice versa.

  9. Lindelol
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    I am sure Lord Lundstram will be labelled as midfielder next season and if his price is like 6/6.5 million we might not see him in many teams. But he will still be remembered for a very long time.

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Next season he will be at United. Upgrading Pogba.

      1. Lindelol
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        He is already at United and doing well

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 5 days ago

          True.

    2. Bob_the_builder
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Really sad. More reason to enjoy it while it lasts.

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Instantly a non-option then.

    4. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Some people might get him as a sentimental pick.

  10. Bishopool

    I have Aguero, Pukki and Connolly

    OUT
    Aguero and Connolly

    IN

    Mount to Martial?

    I’m talking myself into it because I’ve got 2FTs, I have the money for it, Mount (who I would only lose 0.1 on) is a doubt and Martial’s fixtures are better for the next few weeks.

    Currently on 2FT, 1.0 ITB

    Pope
    TAA Tomori Rico Lund

    Pope
    TAA Digne Lundstram
    Sterling KDB Martial Mount CHO
    Vardy Tammy

    Button Rico Soy Connolly

    The only moves I'd consider at the moment are
    A)CHO >> 8.0m mid, likely Maddison (was going to get rid of CHO, but Mount injury will improve chances of starting vs Palace)
    B)Digne >> Robertson (was planning to do it after City game, but could do it earlier)
    C)Hold and have 2FT next GW

    1. andre_c
      • 1 Year

      A imo

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Would say A but not now with Mason injury. C and roll ft

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Sterling -> Salah/Mane imo

    Please Reply!!

    GTG?

    TAA, Lund, Rico
    Salah, KDB, Mount, Yarmo
    Vardy, Tammy, Jimmy

    Button, Soy, Cantwell, Janmaat

    0FT, 3.3ITB (Have done Kun, Wilson > Vardy, Jimmy)

    Should I play Soy/Cantwell ahead of Yarmo, or even take Yarmo out for Tielemans/Maddison or anyone else around that price?

    Cheers

    1. Connor Wickham
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Id probs play Cantwell and cheer him on tonight if you are watching the game. Hit for Maddison probs worth it long term tho

      1. andre_c
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Cantwell may not even play today

    2. PascalCygan
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I’d stick with that rather than take a hit. Soy a decent stand-in for Mount

      1. andre_c
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 5 days ago

        yeah, I agree, but long term does Maddison/Tielemans look good?

    3. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      same like you, really cant decide between Soy,Lundstram and Yarmolenko , one of them should be benched...

  14. French Gooner

    How is she looking ?

    Pope
    Soy - Lundstram - Lowton

    KDB to Martial or Maddison?

    Need to do it to afford the Connolly > Jimenez upgrade.

    1. yer old da
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Or hold fire with this?

      Pope
      TAA, Tomori, Lundstram, Rico
      Sterling, Mane, KDB, Mount
      Vardy, Abraham

        I have exact same 11 only difference is Maddison instead of mount

        hold

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      Do it for Madds and Raul

      1. yer old da
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Tempted. Would give me a 3-4-3 as follows:

        Pope
        TAA, Tomori, Lundstram
        Sterling, Mane, Maddison, Mount
        Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez

        With Gazzaniga, Rico, Soyuncu and Dendoncker on the bench. Effectively Rico and KDB v Maddison and Jimenez. Sounds a no-brainer when you put it like that.

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 5 days ago

          I agree...strong team. No point in saying keep Kevin or hold since you decided to keeo Raz. And I think it is even bettee that way. So yes I would do that and play 343

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      At what price did you buy KDB?

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Do I need to remind you, that KDB is sitting on more points than Sterling as we speak?

  19. Nicoson

    Start van dijk or soyuncu?

    1. Connor Wickham
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Virgil

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      VVD

    Abraham's minutes prediction vs palace?

    1. Connor Wickham
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      78

    2. Pieterke30
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      75ish

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      It depends on the score. So lets hope he plays 60 and get a rest because he just scored a hattie

    Anybody going for Jota instead of Jimenez?

    1. MARVELLUS
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      No. Jimi on pens for now too

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Your just assuming now. No evidence to back this up yet

        1. MARVELLUS
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Did you see the managers comments? He said after Neves miss yday it is time for Jimi

    2. Connor Wickham
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I wouldn't

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Hardly. But the one to monitor for sure.

    4. Royal5

      Jota has been abysmal all season

  22. MARVELLUS
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Hmm, got 2ft and nothing urgent, so do a boring
    A) cantwell to Dend
    B) roll the dice, Auba/Mcginn out for Jimi/Martial??

    Auba is a cap option vs Sou and Nor though....

    KDB Mane Mcginn Mount Cantwell
    Auba Vardy Abraham

    Captain Martial?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I am

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Bold!

  24. Pieterke30
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    A. Sterling + Tielemans
    B. KDB + Maddison

    Im getting rid of one of the City boys, and bringing one LEI mid. Problem is Id rather keep Sterling than KDB, but would rather bring Maddison than Tielemans. Sterling+Maddison not an option for me

    1. Connor Wickham
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      A

      1. Pieterke30
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        Because more explosive than KDB?

        Other (key) element is Im unlikely to captain the City mid I will keep over the next 4-5 games anyway... so, not better to go for the cheaper one?

        1. Connor Wickham
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Mainly yes, much prefer him as captain option and think tielemans and maddison are very close. This week I'd prefer kdb but long term A.

    2. ZimZalabim
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      go for A then
      I have B fwiw but if u would rather keep sterling go for A
      Kdb being deeper is a bit of a concern also

    3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      If no value tied up in KDB then A. If value tied up in KDB then B.

  25. ZimZalabim
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Mount to Son or Rich for a -4

    yay or nay ?

  26. Nolberto Solano
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 5 days ago

    Take a hit on Sterling to Mane?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 5 days ago

      No

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      I did it yesterday.. thought sterling was dropping... and I also have another transfer planned for next week.. so I figured why not. But sort of regret it now

    3. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Yes

    Lads don't know what to do. Planned on saving FT but have an itchy trigger finger with a few players that need to go. 1.2m ITB

    Team as it stands
    Pope (Button)
    TAA Lundstram Rico Soyuncu (Otamendi)
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount (Cantwell)
    Abraham Pukki (Connolly)

    Any thoughts?

    1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Pukki -> Jim or Mount -> Martial could work for you

    2. MARVELLUS
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 5 days ago

      Save, 2ft over IB.
      if you want, lose Otamendi

      1. wasp3000
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 5 days ago

        I want to lose Ota so bad but feel i can roll without him this week and flip to Robbo after the Int break

        1. MARVELLUS
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 5 days ago

          Yeah good plan, save
