Rashford and Martial reward patience in big win over Newcastle

Manchester United players rewarded the patience shown by owners in Gameweek 19.

Despite losing at Watford and going behind against Newcastle, they went on to win 4-1 at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, owners of Sheffield United defenders were left disappointed by Watford getting a breakaway goal at Bramall Lane.

We’ve got all the latest Fantasy Premier League talking points from those two matches in this Scout Notes article.

Man United 4-1 Newcastle

Goals: Anthony Martial x2 (£7.7m), Mason Greenwood (£4.3m), Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) | Matthew Longstaff (£4.5m)

Assists: Andreas Pereira (£4.9m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m) | Joelinton (£5.6m)

Bonus Points: Martial x3, Greenwood x2, Wan-Bissaka x1

Manchester United attacking assets went some way to disproving the theory that they can only deliver against bigger clubs as they thrashed Newcastle 4-1 on Boxing Day.

Following a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Watford, Fantasy managers were perhaps a little less trusting of Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) and Anthony Martial (£7.7m) but, despite a disappointing start to their Gameweek 19 match, the Red Devils responded ruthlessly.

Martial bagged himself a brace for a 15-point haul and arguably could have netted a hat-trick while Rashford nodded home his 11th league goal of the campaign and scored six points.

While Newcastle did gift two goals to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, seeing them take apart a side that had, to some extent, set themselves up to defend should encourage owners of Manchester United attackers.

They had been accused of not being able to break down compact sides recently but did it perfectly at Old Trafford.

Crucially, the fact that Manchester United were 4-1 up around the hour-mark provided Solskjaer with the opportunity to rest Rashford and Martial in the final 30 minutes – all but securing both starts and relatively fresh bodies for the two players ahead of their Gameweek 20 trip to Burnley.

Owners may feel considerably more positive about that match after Manchester United’s Boxing Day exploits. Not only did they punish Newcastle, Burnley have also conceded at least three times in each of their last four against last season’s top-six.

Solskjaer’s men could be further boosted at Turf Moor by a first start since returning from injury for Paul Pogba (£8.4m).

For the second league match in a row, the Frenchman featured as a second-half substitute at Old Trafford on Boxing Day but an injury to Scott McTominay (£5.1m), as well as 45 minutes against Newcastle, may see him come into the team on Saturday.

“Paul (Pogba) it’s too early to demand too much of him. He’s worked really hard but then it’s been a long lay off. We’ll have to drip feed him in and gradually play him more and more.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Having said that, Solskjaer did hand starts on Boxing Day to Andreas Pereira (£4.9m) and Mason Greenwood (£4.3m) in more attacking roles than was afforded to Pogba.

“Andreas (Pereira) and Mason (Greenwood) have done well and they’ll give us fresh legs.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Therefore, with McTominay potentially out for a prolonged period, as is possible, Pogba may well find himself deployed in a deeper role than Fantasy managers would like.

“(McTominay) has done his ligament in the knee. Don’t know how bad. Biggest heart of the lot. Played until half-time. Not sure if he will be fit for Saturday. Probably not.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): de Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Fred, McTominay (Pogba 46′); Rashford (Lingard 63′), A Pereira, Greenwood; Martial (Mata 67′).

Newcastle United XI (3-5-2): Dúbravka; Lejeune, Fernández, Schär (Krafth 88′); Willems, Almirón (Yedlin 63′), S Longstaff, M Longstaff, Maquillo; Gayle (Atsu 59′), Joelinton.

Sheffield United 1-1 Watford

Goals: Oliver Norwood (£4.9m) | Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m)

Assists: George Baldock (£5.0m) | Nathaniel Chalobah (£4.4m)

Bonus Points: Norwood x3, Chalobah x2, Baldock x1

Amid heavy backing for Gameweek 19, the Sheffield United defence was let down by a rare lapse of concentration against Watford.

As per usual, the Blades gave little quarter in their latest Premier League match, restricting the Hornets, typically goal-shy anyway, to just five shots, three in the box and two on target.

Despite that, and registering 12 penalty area shots of their own, Chris Wilder’s men were unable to find a way to win.

The roughly 80,000 Fantasy managers who captained John Lundstram (£5.2m) can certainly feel somewhat unfortunate not to get returns at either end of the pitch.

As already mentioned, Watford managed to make the most of their only big chance of the game, Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m), deployed on the flanks of attacking midfield, converting at Dean Henderson‘s (£4.8m) near-post after going through on goal from a Nathaniel Chalobah (£4.4m) pass.

By comparison, John Egan (£4.5m) had four chances inside the Watford box but could not get any of them on target, while Ben Foster (£4.8m) did well to stop Oli McBurnie (£5.7m) twice.

“My players were really not at it today as well as they have been. These are precious points in the Premier League and we will take one and move on. We have a positive result even if it was not one of our best and most positive performances. We never played with our drive and energy that got us into this position. If you’re not at full tilt, you will not get the result you want.” – Chris Wilder

While Sheffield United were disappointed not to win at Bramall Lane, Nigel Pearson continues to be pleased with the progress being made at Watford since he took over.

During his short tenure, the Hornets have claimed four points from a possible nine against Liverpool, Manchester United and this season’s surprise package in the Blades.

With Gameweek 20 pitting Watford against Aston Villa who, despite a Boxing Day clean sheet at home to Norwich, have been poor at the back this year, we should keep an eye on their assets as they continue to improve.

“We were far from at our best today. But what should give us encouragement is even when we have not been playing as fluently as we can do, we get something out of it. We still have enough time and games to affect our own season, and it is as simple as that in my view.” – Nigel Pearson

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): D Henderson; O’Connell, Egan, Basham; Stevens, Fleck, Norwood, Lundstram, Baldock; McGoldrick, McBurnie (Mousset 63′).

Watford XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Femenía, Cathcart, Kabasele, Mariappa; Hughes, Capoue; Deulofeu, Chalobah (Dawson 89′), Sarr (Pereyra 46′); Deeney (A Gray 80′).

    Morning all. How is everyone this morning? I try to stay away on match days. There's usually a lot of emotion. Predictions for tonight's match? KDB (C) and Sterling here.

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      3-1 Mancity probably, unless Traorebhasbhisnday then wolves can get a draw

    2. Kloppage Time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      KDB (C) as well

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      KDB 1G 2A 3B for a casual 16 pointer

      1. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Hope so. Current form suggests he could get something positive. I actually hope Sterling can do better as he feels more of a differential.

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Mathematically in terms of EO KDB (c) is more of a differential so you will do better if he gets more xx

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      1-2

      Will be a tight game.

      kdb gets a goal and an assist, jiminez gets a tap in 3-1 city

      to all above queries:
      Pogba definitely will have some defensive duties now as Fred isnt your kante machine who can do everything. Also with Lingard/Mata/Perreria capable of playing CAM, Pogba will more likely be assister to the assist thus ruining his assist potential. As far has goals are concerned, he hits mostly long range which is very erratic way to score points and his heading isnt much to write about either. Martial and Rash are max that are worth the gamble and defence 100% waste of space now if it wasnt already

    Case for Danny Ings(C)

    - Great Form:- 10 goals in.last 12 gws

    - Decent Fixture:- CPL

    - Nailed on to start after getting his rest this gw. This is vital in a gw where many big hittets are at risk of rotation.

    - Soton are in good form with 4 wins in 6 games. Will be buzzing after chelsea win as well

    Thoughts? Are you considering him? Im Not setting my expectations too high and will be happy with a goal

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Never captain anyone playing against palace. They go into every game against every opponent to stop them from scoring a goal.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Still conceding a goal a game at the least recently. Danny Ings has been unstoppable though and his movement likely to cause trouble for palace defence

    2. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Cpl play very negative and are not ones to concede from.headers. Most likely Redmond will have a good day as their slow Cbs will struggle. Salah looks no brainer after being subbed early while Vardy played full match and 1day less rest

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Does being subbed off only 20 mins earlier make such a difference?

        I honestly dont think so

        1. LosBlancos
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Speaks about intentions though

        2. Stef rocks
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I don’t think he was subbed for rest - he was just poor. You don’t sub your “best” player if you lead 1-0 in 60th minute !!!

    3. Stef rocks
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not a bad shout, but if it was this Gw. I think there are much better premium options for Gw20

      1. Stef rocks
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Also CRY are not exactly whipping boys

      2. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Like who.? Could you convince me who is the best captaincy option with clear insight to why?

        1. Stef rocks
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          If your team structure allows it watch for Kun. If Jesus starts tonight(which is very likely imo) Kun will be amazing differential captain option and I can see him haul with brace or even hattrick - he will be eager to retain his place back!

    4. XabiAlonso
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Could be a good shout. Should be more certain of a start than other players this new gameweek

    5. Silecro
      • 2 Years

      Im considering Tammy > Ings(c) for free, would you do it? your post only cemented my thoughts

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yes absolutely. Tammy has gone off the boil recently and is at risk of getting a rest

  6. Ragnar Lothbrok

    TAA ruined my Xmas

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not keeping a 7mn setpiece midfielder who gets cleanies from a title chasing side is ruining it yourself purposefully

      1. Ragnar Lothbrok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Barely had a clean sheet when I got rid

    2. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      He made mine 🙂 . Can't remember ever having a good boxing day in FPL. He is such an attacking player he always threatened a score like that. Still, I do honestly feel for non-owners. Especially if you've only recently sold him.

    3. Stef rocks
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I got rid of him for the blank and then playing vs “league best defense” planning to get him for Gw20 (owning him since GW1). Tell me isn’t that cruel!

      1. Ragnar Lothbrok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yep got rid for blank too, enabled me to get KDB in. Now I've taken a hit to get him back in, oh well!

        1. DeadStar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          But did you keep Mane? I'm confused why so many felt they had to get rid of TAA. I got rid of Mane for Son (that didn't work out) but I held TAA as there was no big gain to be made in defence.

          1. Ragnar Lothbrok
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Yep kept Mane, and brought Salah in last week too, thought that would be safe not having Trent. Well I've missed his haul this year so need to try and move on...somehow

            1. DeadStar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Yeah like I say I do have sympathy because people have been caught out by the Liverpool blank. If that hadn't of happened you would likely still own TAA. It's done. It's part of the game. You have to experience the lows to appreciate the highs. Best luck in the future.

    4. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Exactly what you deserve. Its simple as that

      Why wouldn't you own a liverpool defender, on set peices , plays in midfeild and has a delivery better than anyone in the league (bar maybe KDB) ?

      1. Ragnar Lothbrok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I took him out for KDB on the blank GW, thinking I'd get him back in asap. Now it's too late

  7. BNMC
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Still unsure of whether bringing in TAA warrants a -4. He could probably repay that but I should probably just wait until GW21...

    1. No Totti No Party
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      He is most likely to be rested next game

      1. Stef rocks
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        For whom? They don’t have defenders. Also pool has 3 days to recover. People sometimes forget that professional footballers can play every 3 days 🙂
        Especially if they are 21 and have no injury record 🙂

  8. the Penman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    An “essential”, “season keeper” defender with 1 clean sheet in 11 gameweeks, and 2 attacking returns in 12? Seems unlikely, right? Until he goes and scores 24 points the following game week.

    1. Ritchies Magic Hat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      He looks likely to get attacking returns every game

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      The thing with Trent is we all know he could haul in any match, regardless of opponent.

      You take the risk every GW.

    3. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Check what his points total will be at end of gw38. Players like him, salah and now kdb are worth keeping for months and even full season barring injury to get full use. Last season I had robbo since gw1, this year its taa oncourse to finish atleast in top 10k gw38

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        How has Salah justified being a months or season keeper

        He's the opposite of that.

    4. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Good perspective on it. Maybe I won't rush to get him back in straight away. Think because a lot of people sold him just a week ago due to the blank it's more frustrating when you miss a haul like that than not owning him at all.

    5. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I don't think any defender is essential. I trashed him for weeks and was considering taking him out for a hit before this happened.

    6. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Stop Moaning and Face up to it you salty non owners.

      Why wouldn't you own a liverpool defender, on set peices , plays in midfeild and has a delivery better than anyone in the league (bar maybe KDB) ?

      1. Jurgen Flopp
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I'm a non owner. Stupidly sold him for the blank. Owned him all season prior to that. Not making excuses here. That's FPL. You gotta take it on the chin and move on.

        Swings and roundabouts.

    FPL family

    Questions that are a bit speculative, but I know people on here have good instincts / knowledge.

    Who will Klopp rotate out from last night for their next game, if any?
    Will Brendan rest the skittle-vodka drinking goal machine?
    Will I ever get another green arrow?

    Good luck to all and happy holidays.

    1. Hot Toddy

      Maybe Mane but I'd guess the plan is full strength team.

      Seriously doubt it.

      Maybe 😀

      Hard to find any need for transfers, nice team.

      Mane likely rested next game but If you have had him long time it isn't smart to take him out just for 1 week because you would lose money

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Thanks, yeah had Mane a while so don't really want to sell. Money tied up in players with good fixtures so don't feel like I can downgrade now to sort out the mess. Either Kane or Alli would need to go but that doesn't feel right.

    Didht captain Kdb as I felt wolves are strong at home and slightly worried about his gametime. Now bricking it after all my league has done so!

      kdb will be rested vs Shef..Pep himself said he is fut to play vs wolves but shef is after 2 days and much less tricky

    I have fallen 66 points behind ML. But my only differentials are
    Button ( does not really count) Kelly Richarlison Rashford to his Pope Targett Shelvey Kane. Impossible to catch without getting differentials and choosing more risky captains. How would you go about catching and which differentials would you try to get in? Only .3 m in bank

    Ryan
    TAA Söyüncü Rico

      He will mostly captain kane in next 2. keep fimgers crossed and captain salah/rash. Alsonits long way to.go as dgws and bb also.remaining. Can also look at Rich to Martial if he blanks next gw too

    3. DeadStar

      Don't panic is my advice. Long way to go with blanks/doubles/chips etc. I think you're team looks decent.

    4. Hot Toddy

      Forget about rival. Take less risks. Focus on gw average. Nothing too fancy. Two punt players at most. Keep it simple.

      Need differentials, he has two in the ones you listed.
      Your not the only one, I’m about to rip my team apart to get gains.
      Keep the core but get some differentials, look at what Trent did yesterday?

    6. fgdu

      rich out or rico upgrade

      1. fgdu

        agree with Hot toddy, just get a decent team don't worry about differentials

    Lovely green arrow at the moment and back into the top 50k! Have kdb (c) and Jimenez left to keep the green? Cup opponent has 58 points with only kdb left me 51 can I win this?

    1. Hazz

      I will be disappointed if you don't. Have Jim and captain Kevin also.

      Sell Tammy. Give the other two 1-2 games at least.

    3. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'd hold Richarlison for now. Tammy is facing Arsenal so there's a case for holding too.

    Is it madness selling Rashford & Alli this week?

    Yes both of them scored but none of their performances were inspiring.
    Spurs looked crap for most of the game and United don't have the best of fixtures going forward.

    Salah & Maupay/DCL are the replacements I'm considering.

    1. Tshelby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I like it!

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A bit risky but could pay off.

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years

      Any other mid you can sell?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Have Mane, KDB & Grealish.

        Has to be Alli if any.

    3. Stoichkov#8

      Its gonna end up in tears

    4. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years

      Delli looked ok and Salah looked complete dog-egg

      Just seems like shuffling round players who all have problems.

      1. Karan14

        Not sure about that tbh.

    I feel like having 2 playing GKs could be holding me back. I like the flexibility of swapping them when one has a tougher fixture, but at the same time it's frustrating when the one I benched outscores the one I played. And of course, it's more expensive to own 2 playing GKs.

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Yeah I only have one playin keeper.
      Luckily it was Heaton yesterday.

    2. Ritchies Magic Hat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I’ve done it this season for the first time and it seems to be paying off - I think if you make the right call 80-90% of the time it’s worth sticking with it

    3. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Agree. I usually just go with one GK from a good team. However this season none of the top teams are keeping CS. Had rotation trouble for a long while avoiding point by benching the wrong GK. Got Gazza/Henderson atm who looks good on paper but won't be suprised if Henderson outscores Gazza. Problem for top teams keepers is that the don't get as many saves so if the concede it's pretty much 1-2 points max.

  23. Dele

    All I’m reading is everyone getting rested next game... won’t have a team at this rate.

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Button (vc)

  24. Sir_Durs8

    What’s the chances of Vardy being rested next GW? The below article came out 6 days ago.

      Some argue he's had his rest during the Liverpool match.

    3. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      He had his rest on the pitch last night.
      His pace will be needed on the counter against West Ham. This will not be the case vs Newcastle the game after. I think he plays tomorrow and rests vs newcastle.

  25. Punty

    Got 16.9m for 2 midfielders.. already got mane and kdb..

    A) pogba and maddison

    D) others?

    1. zon

      Grealish + Madds

    2. Sicaholic

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

    I wonder when KDB is rested, both ML rivals have him as captain - would be good if it were tonight!

  28. Joe_Carman
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Alright peeps, need some help.

    i'm thinking either a) Mount and Cantwell out, Maddison and Dendo in, or
    b) just Mount out Graelish in, or
    c) Tammy and Cants out, Rashford and Dendo in?
    d) anything else?

    Current team is:
    2ft, 1.2itb
    pope, button
    rico, kelly, soy, trent, lundy
    mane, kdb, alli, mount, cants
    vardy, tammy, ings

    Cheers lads!

        1 month, 29 days ago

        I don't have enough itb to do a straight swap with tammy for rash

        I like having cants as a sub, dunno if it's worth it

        might just go with mount and cants out, madders and dendo in

    Joe Gomez has come back into the Liverpool team and they have just got three clean sheets in a row.

    Just £5.1M to get into the best defence in the league...
