The penultimate match of Gameweek 13 takes place at Bramall Lane, with Sheffield United entertaining Manchester United.
Kick-off in Sunday’s only Premier League fixture is at 16:30 GMT.
There is plenty of interest for Fantasy Premier League managers in this game, with David de Gea (£5.5m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m), Harry Maguire (£5.3m), Daniel James (£6.2m), Marcus Rashford (£8.6m) and John Lundstram (£4.9m) all sitting in more than 10% of FPL squads.
All six of those players start in South Yorkshire today.
Anthony Martial (£7.8m), who is on the cusp of a double-digit ownership himself, also features in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI.
The Norwegian head coach has made just one alteration to his Gameweek 12 line-up, with Phil Jones (£4.8m) replacing the injured Scott McTominay (£5.1m).
Whether Jones is a like-for-like swap for the Scot in midfield or joins a back three remains to be seen, with Solskjaer saying ahead of kick-off:
Phil has been training well. He’s got experience of playing both central midfield and at the back. When you show the attitude he’s shown in training, it’s time for him to get a chance. Marcos [Rojo] is injured, Axel [Tuanzebe] isn’t really ready to come in so it was an easy option.
Brandon Williams (£4.0m) gets his second successive start at left-back (or wing-back), keeping the benched Ashley Young (£5.4m) out of the side despite the latter’s return from suspension.
Solskjaer said of that decision:
Brandon’s played really well in every game he’s played. I didn’t find any reason to leave him out. It’s a testing stadium for him to play at so it’s a good opportunity to show his mentality because his temperament is one of his strengths.
Chris Wilder makes two enforced changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur a fortnight ago.
Dean Henderson (£4.7m) – owned by just over 5% of Fantasy managers – is ineligible to face his parent club, so Simon Moore (£4.4m) deputises for the on-loan goalkeeper for the hosts.
The hitherto ever-present John Egan (£4.5m) hasn’t recovered from a calf injury so Phil Jagielka (£4.2m) gets his first Premier League start of the season.
Lys Mousset (£5.0m) and David McGoldrick (£5.4m) again start up front.
The Blades have kept clean sheets in three of their six home fixtures in 2019/20 and conceded just four goals in those half-dozen matches.
Solskjaer’s troops have won just one of their six away games this season and are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road.
Three of the Red Devils’ five away goals came at Carrow Road in Gameweek 10.
Sheffield United XI: Moore, O’Connell, Jagielka, Basham, Stevens, Baldock, Fleck, Norwood, Lundstram, Mousset, McGoldrick.
Manchester United XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Jones, Maguire, Lindelof, Williams, Pereira, Fred, James, Martial, Rashford.
