Brandon Williams (£4.0m) makes his first Premier League start of the season as Manchester United host Brighton on Sunday afternoon.
The left-back has enjoyed game-time in the Europa League thus far but has been limited to two substitute appearances in the top-flight.
Circumstances have conspired to help him into the team for the visit of Brighton with Luke Shaw (£5.4m) still out injured and Ashley Young (£5.4m) serving a one-match suspension.
All eyes will be on Williams in this encounter as the prospect of a £4.0m option starting regularly in the Manchester United defence is hugely exciting.
The Red Devils have further appealing fixtures on the horizon including so such a budget asset could be very helpful.
However, he will still have to keep Young out of the team for Gameweek 13, when he returns from suspension so there’s a long way to go yet.
Elsewhere in the Red Devils’ team, Harry Maguire (£5.4m) and Victor Lindelöf (£5.4m) have shaken off their yellow flags to both start at centre-back.
Anthony Martial (£7.7m) leads the Manchester United attack, with Marcus Rashford (£8.5m) and Daniel James (£6.2m) either side of him.
Graham Potter continues to prove how much he enjoys rotating his players as Pascal Groß (£6.4m), one of Brighton’s best performers of late, is left on the bench.
Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) comes in for his first start since Gameweek 4, while Steven Alzate (£4.5m) provides the width on the other side of the Seagulls 4-4-2.
Neal Maupay (£6.1m) and Aaron Connolly (£4.7m) retain their starting berths up-front.
Wolves have lined up in a 3-4-3 formation for their derby with Aston Villa.
That sees Diogo Jota (£6.1m) and Adama Traoré (£5.1m) flanking Raúl Jiménez (£7.3m).
Short of defensive personnel, Nuno Espirito Santo has selected Romain Saïss (£4.4m), Conor Coady (£5.0m) and Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) at centre-back.
Meanwhile, owners of Wolves attacking assets may be happy to see that Villa come to Molineux short of some key personnel, especially in defence.
The Birmingham Mail reported this afternoon that Tom Heaton (£4.5m) and Bjorn Engels (£4.5m) both sustained injuries this week.
That sees Ezri Konsa (£4.3m) come in for his first start of the season at centre-back while Jed Steer (£4.4m), first-choice during Villa’s promotion run, fills in between the sticks.
