Martial comes through injury doubt to start for Man United

Anthony Martial (£7.6m) has come through his pre-match injury doubts to start for Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that he wasn’t sure if the Frenchman could feature from the beginning in Gameweek 16 but it looks as if he might have been playing mind-games ahead of such an important match.

Martial’s presence means that Manchester United’s attack is largely at full-strength for their trip across the city, Marcus Rashford (£8.8m) and Daniel James (£6.1m) either side of him.

However, the main Fantasy focus of this match is naturally going to be on the hosts and, thankfully, there are very few shocks and surprises.

Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) and Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) form two-thirds of the front-three with Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) also included in the starting line-up.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.3m) and David Silva (£7.6m) are both present in central midfield while Angeliño (£4.7m) gets a second start in a row at left-back.

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Angeliño, Fernandinho, Stones, Walker; de Bruyne, D Silva, Rodrigo; Sterling, Jesus, B Silva.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Lingard, D James; Martial.

    Rashford dive for pen two times in two games. Disgusting.

      Your either fishing/trolling or drinking and your vision is blurred because that’s as clear a pen as you will ever see

        He's always at it. Fishing with old bait.
