Rashford plays down injury worries after latest FPL double-digit haul

We continue our round-up of the Gameweek 22 matches with a look at what happened from a Fantasy perspective at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United 4-0 Norwich City

  • Goals: Marcus Rashford (£9.2m) x2, Anthony Martial (£7.9m), Mason Greenwood (£4.3m)
  • Assists: Juan Mata (£6.2m) x2, Brandon Williams (£4.0m)
  • Bonus: Rashford x3 Mata x2 Williams x1

Marcus Rashford (£9.2m) marked his 200th game for Manchester United with a fourth double-digit haul of the season as Norwich City were swept away at Old Trafford.

The striker scored a goal in each half as his 30.2% Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership continued to reap the benefits of his fine form – he’s now scored four times in as many Gameweeks.

Rashford opened the scoring when he converted a Juan Mata (£6.2m) cross before he doubled United’s advantage from the penalty spot after Brandon Williams (£4.0m) was brought down by Canaries keeper Tim Krul (£4.5m).

The only potential downside to his day came when he was substituted after 58 minutes, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying that “he is struggling a little bit so we took him off”.

But the player himself later confirmed on social media that the move was more about staying fit for his side’s FA Cup replay with Wolves in midweek, saying:

Just a precaution and looking forward to getting back at it Wednesday.

Mata earned his second assist when Anthony Martial (£7.9m) headed home his cross, a finish that meant the France international matched Rashford’s fine goalscoring record over the last four league matches.

Substitute Mason Greenwood (£4.3m) then rounded off the rout to make it three goals from the last five games for the young striker, only one of which has involved a place in the starting line-up.

Consistency remains an issue for Solskjaer’s side, although they have at least started to see off supposedly lesser teams in recent weeks, but Norwich’s notoriously leaky defence is not the benchmark required to judge the overall improvement of this young United outfit.

Next week’s trip to Liverpool certainly is, and it’s a fixture that ushers in a tough run involving away matches at Chelsea, Everton and Spurs and visits from Manchester City, Sheffield United and Watford.

All of that has not dissuaded Fantasy managers from buying into Rashford, who is in the top three for transfers-in ahead of that Anfield clash.

Investing in a defence with two clean sheets from the last three Gameweeks is proving less tempting, but the rise of youngster Williams offers a cut-price way into that backline, with the added bonus of potential attacking returns as well – only Martial and Rashford had more attempts than the left-back on Saturday.

The key question is whether Williams can now hold down a regular starting spot. Solskjaer was certainly not ruling out that possibility in his post-match praise for the 19-year-old:

We want to get to a place where players understand that, if I play well, I’ll keep my place. If I don’t, there’s competition behind us. There’s good competition there now (at left-back) and Brandon has never let us down. Another excellent performance by him.

If United’s final position in the league is still unclear at present, Norwich are now looking nailed-on to finish bottom.

With Teemu Pukki (£6.5m) out of form and injured (although expected to be back in Gameweek 23), their one Fantasy asset worth considering remains Todd Cantwell (£4.9m), who came closest to scoring for the visitors when his fine shot was expertly saved by David de Gea (£5.4m).

The fact that the United keeper ended up producing more stops than his Norwich counterpart said it all – the home side were ruthless, the visitors wasteful.

Either way, there’s little to tempt managers into buying Canaries assets, especially with Liverpool, Leicester and Spurs to come over the next six Gameweeks.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Williams; Fred, Matic; Mata, Pereira (Greenwood 71′), Rashford (James 59′); Martial (Gomes 80′).

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Hanley (Lewis 81′), Zimmerman, Byram; Tettey, Vrancic (Amadou 65′); Cantwell, McLean, Buendia; Idah (Hernandez 65′).

Members Analysis

Chelsea 3-0 Burnley

  • Goals: Jorginho (£4.9m), Tammy Abraham (£7.8m), Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Reece James (5.0m), Willian (£7.2m), Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m)
  • Bonus:  Azpilicueta x3, James x2, Jorginho x1

Chelsea bounced back from a three-match winless run with a regulation victory over struggling Burnley.

Goals from Jorginho (£4.9m), Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m) didn’t flatter the Blues, who had eight shots on target to the visitors’ one.

Hudson-Odoi’s strike, from a Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m) assist, was his first Premier League goal for Chelsea and with just 0.5% FPL ownership, the young winger could be a major differential candidate if he can build on that landmark.

His manager, Frank Lampard, was certainly happy to praise him post-match:

For Callum to score in the six-yard box is more exciting than him scoring from 30 yards. It means he is willing to get in there. It wasn’t the only time he did that. His overall performance was a statement of what he has to do. That was the real Callum. If he carries on like that we will have a real player.

The one rider when it comes to investment in any of Chelsea’s players involves their immediate schedule, however.

Lampard’s side travel to Newcastle next before embarking on a brutal four-Gameweek run involving Arsenal, Leicester, Manchester United and Spurs, although the only away fixture in that quartet will be at the King Power Stadium.

At least Abraham will head into all of that with his return to form gathering pace. He produced an attacking return for the third straight Gameweek – two goals and an assist – when Burnley keeper Nick Pope (£4.6m) failed to deal with his header.

Reece James (£5.0m) set up the goal and he and fellow defender Azpilicueta dominated the bonus point standings as the Blues kept their first clean sheet since Gameweek 18.

A tendon injury ruled out Christian Pulisic (£7.0m). The American has been in the thoughts of many Fantasy managers this season, while his team-mate Willian (£7.2m) has spent much of the campaign under the radar.

The Brazilian was brought down for the penalty kick converted by Jorginho, making it two assists from the last three matches for the winger. He also scored twice to bring in 16-point haul against Spurs in Gameweek 18 and is now seven points clear at the top of the team’s midfield scoring charts in FPL.

That nasty upcoming schedule will persuade only the bravest to tap into Chelsea’s stars, while Burnley’s wretched form means investment in their players would be an act of desperation.

Sean Dyche’s side have now lost four straight matches in the league, scoring just the once along the way, and they’ll be facing Leicester, Manchester United, Arsenal and the in-form Southampton over the next four fixtures.

The manager knows just what is needed to revive their fortunes.

We have to fight for everything. We have always had to do that. The confidence gets sucked out of players if they are not winning. We are trying to revive that.

But until that revival kicks in – if it does at all – their players look off-limits, with even the popular Pope (13.0%) shipping managers in seven of the last eight Gameweeks.

On the injury front, Dyche explained:

Jay Rodriguez is ill. Bardo only trained yesterday morning after four days of illness. Barnesy we will find out more about [this week]. Johann [Berg Gudmundsson] is settling down his hamstring and we are not sure on that one, we will have to wait and see. Robbie [Brady], calf, so he will probably be back on the grass hopefully this week.

N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) missed out for Chelsea, meanwhile, with Lampard saying:

It was something that came up last night. It was more of an awareness in the hamstring as opposed to a moment where he had to pull up. That makes you hope that it’s a small thing but we’ll have to see how it goes.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Kepa; James, Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta; Barkley, Jorginho; Hudson-Odoi, Mount, Willian; Abraham.

Burnley XI (4-4-1-1): Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Lennon, Westwood, Cork, McNeil; Hendrick (Vydra 73′); Wood.

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years

      Rico to Holgate or try to figure out how to get a third Pool player.

  5. Karan14

    Henderson
    TAA - Dunk - Soy
    Salah - Mane - KDB - Grealish
    Vardy - Jimenez - Maupay

    (4.0 - Cantwell - Lundy - Rico)
    1 Ft & 0.1m

    Stuck around 900k.
    Any inspirational moves I can make to move up the ranks?

    Currently thinking Jimenez to Ings a boring move.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      No real cash to do anything really.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah a bit stuck with both of them. They really need to deliver those Aguero-esque hauls now.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Wouldn't expect it this week. After the DGW, selling one and getting another Pool defender might work.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Yeah I've looked at that after the DGW.
            Selling KDB to free up funds might be an option also given their slightly tough run of fixtures coming up and if GW28 blank is confirmed.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Do the Ings move. Double LIV mid restricts options for decent punts

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yeah mate will get Ings in as any points from him now is red arrows.

    3. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Jimenez to Ings and Maupay to Deeney?

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Over 2 weeks obviously

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yes that's what I was thinking.
        Maupay to Deeney/Deulo next week.

        Cheers Holmes!

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Look @ Moura
      Something like Jimenez grealish >> Moura Ings maybe nice option. Not sure about hit though

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Jimenez to Ings will free up some funds to play around with Grealish or Maupay next week.

  6. Joggers Nipple
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Last dilemma for GW24 (have been set on A for ages)

    Ryan/ Skelt
    TAA Kelly Lunds ???? ????
    KDB Mane Maddison Grealish ????
    Ings Vardy Rashford

    A. VVD and 4.5 mid (keep Soyuncu)
    B Robertson 4.5mid and Holgate/ WATdef -4
    Holding this week all moves next week

    Thanks for any input.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      A, VVD is class

    2. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      B....Robbo has long term potential after the DGW

    3. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Cheers both

  7. TorresMagic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 10 Years

    At the stage when only owning TAA in defence, I want Pool to concede but some attacking returns.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I like points, no matter what other peeps got.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        You like your rank going backwards?

    2. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Double defence Liverpool teams are sweating over Salah or Mané for the DGW.
      Double attack teams are wondering if the huge outlay in budget will even pay off with Liverpool keeping clean sheets and no hammerings happening

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Feel I got 3 too early now with the results. Pool could easily have conceded in recent games.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 days ago

      DD is bad for nerves tbh
      It's been effective for last 2 GW's for me. Let's see how it goes in GW 24

  8. as33
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Any Kelly replacement for the same price(4.2). Williams not nailed?

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Masuaku or Zabaleta, Dont know if you want to dabble in West Ham defence though.

    2. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Lascelles!!

  9. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 10 days ago

    Very much considering getting Firmino as my 3rd Pool for the double.
    This would be an easy transfer and not require any hits. Also means I could keep KDB.
    Have Salah and TAA but looking for a differential.
    Sitting just outside top 500k this season.
    Thoughts?

    1. olidooley
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Could work

    2. Free Hat
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Good shout. Only worry he perhaps might be rested one game for origi.

    3. Pranked
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Is it utterly insane to consider triple captaining TAA in 24? 😀

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Worth a try, expect Wolves to score.

      2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Nope

      3. Syd.
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I wouldn’t as you are relying on a lot of luck when it comes to Liverpool keeping a clean sheet. Check the expected goals table.

        Even at the weekend Spurs had a higher expected goals than Liverpool

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Yeah
          Spurs missed some glorious chances

          1. Syd.
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            It’s been the case all season. Liverpool have gained 18 points against the expected goals table

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Wow

              1. Syd.
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Very high conversion rate against their oppositions very poor conversion rate.

                1. Amey
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Lucky or just clinical 😮

            2. Moose™
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Is it wise to DD on Pool def going forward?

              1. Syd.
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                I actually would go with a double up despite the stats

    4. Akshatjazz
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Maddison > moura after this gameweek 23 ??

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Lets see how they perform

          Based on this week, yes

          1. Akshatjazz
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Do you think having 2 Brighton player is good due to the fixture ??

              1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Depends who they are. Not a fan of their defense but attack can do well over next few weeks.

                1. Akshatjazz
                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    Have Ryan & dunk

                      1 month, 10 days ago

                      If not dunk then who shld I replace Rico with ??

                      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
                        • 6 Years
                        1 month, 10 days ago

                        Cathcart. Egan if possible.

                        1. Akshatjazz
                            1 month, 10 days ago

                            Already have double Sheffield United players, do you think having a Watford palyer will be good choice. Frm this gameweek till next few gameweeks he can act as my 3 Def option ??

                            1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
                              • 6 Years
                              1 month, 10 days ago

                              From next week, yes.

                              Holgate is also an option if you don't have him

              2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                What can go wrong with Kevin-Traore to Mahrez-Silva? (Other than both getting benched) 😀

                  Pep is a fraud.

                    Are you really shipping kdb?

                    I'm tempted to sell KDB after GW23. But it just doesn't sound right.

                      Same. Would like to sell him but Vardy and Salah are not performing as expected. They might have to go instead.

                        Yup Vardy & Salah need to perform over the next 2 gameweeks otherwise even I'll be looking at other alternatives.

                        A Spurs mid for KDB is tempting but it didn't go right the last time I made this move a few gameweeks ago.

                    With al chips intact.

                    Expecting 2 more dgw in the future using BB and Free Hit,
                    Dgw 24 seems the best time to use TC chip no?

                    Only negative for me is the two away games, but hell, its Livpool.

                      2 blank GWs too.

                        Yes
                        We maybe forced to play FH in a BGW this season

                      Is it ?
                      I thought there will be 3 more DGW's.
                      😮

                      1. Free Hat
                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          Not sure on how many, just stating there will probably be at least 2 more dgw in the future.
                          Only not overly confident in TC chip right now. And Salah or Mane is a Sophies choice for cpt.

                            Hmm
                            I'm going to save TC chip as of now

                          Even I have all the chips intact, thinking to go with the same idea although I think it will be very much one sided and both pool will win easily

                          Think he should start vs Palace (in place of Jesus)

                          I have got rid of him as if they persist with this new system which they may do as they won easily I don't see a place for him in the team.

                          Probably change Soy and Maddo to other? Saw few people stated that they are focusing on cup and predicted to regress..

                        My transfer plans have been screwed with that Fabianski injury. Guess it’s my own fault for just having one playing goal keeper

                        Time to get McCarthy in

                          McCarthy is a good option.

                          Make the transfers you were going to. Think of this as a hit-bandage

                            Salah doesn't do well against United tho

                              Given the ownership, Mane playing makes sense.

                          Burnley isn't tough but agree with the rest.

                            Was going to say maybe not Burnley

                          Nice moves. As long as you know its a gamble

                            Yeah I understand this , but need to make some aggressive moves

                        Just a word of caution for those transferring in Williams. There is another 4.0 defender called Neko Williams (LIV) who looks somewhat similar.

                        I'm set on ditching Mahrez. Lose:

                        A) Madison - fixtures turn in a couple of weeks
                        B) Martial - up front but hates bonus and it's United

                        Have Rashford and Vardy.

                          Getting Mahrez*

                          I prefer tony to madisson

                        Is it wise to sell Ryan and Soy to get McCarthy and Stephens and bank the money? SOU fixtures looking good

                          Brighton got even better fixtures so would not double up

                            Swap Soy with Webster? Double up on Brighton def instead. Haha

                          Going without vardy is really risky though. And if sterling and bilva joins the squad you could be 2 man down pretty quick.
