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.

    Well what a f'ing disastorous week. Sterling benched, KDB EO over 100% so with every point I lost places. Jiminez captain fail. Grealish yellow card.
    44points.

    Assets on my watchlist all performed well: Deeney, Mahrez & Sarr particularly.

    Sterling > Salah this week instead of GW24 and save the other FT is my kneejerk reaction.

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

      Yes . Knee jerking is always the way to go.

    2. Printing Mane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Good transfer

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I also capped Jimenez, that game really hurt my GW as a Jim and Doh owner, they were both so close to scoring.

    4. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Hard after a poor week but I’d still wait a week on that move. Sterling against Crystal Palace could be nice

    5. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Salah has a terrible record against Man Utd and probably they are the only team other than City who gives Liverpool a difficult time every time they play since Klopp took over. I’d do it next GW, Sterling is very unlikely to be benched again.

    6. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Will hold fire on that trigger, I have exact money though. So will watch prices.

    7. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Surely keep Sterling as he's pretty much guaranteed a start

      1. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Or he's out of favour and given todays performance, he'll go for the jesus/Aguero double up again.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Pep uses two attackers against teams that play 5 at the back, for example Huddersfield last season. Expect him to go back to 433 but shouldn't be guessing

    8. Nevermind the Baldocks here…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yeh I had a shocker over xams and lost about 20 pts on the average...

      But imo the classic "he's had his rest now" palace at home is still a better shout than manu. So I would still wait imo

      It seems that pep doesn't want to play sterling in the easy games... If sterling had played in this one and Watford early... And had a bit more var luck. This would have looked rosier for fpl

    9. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year

      If I was you I’d just save yourself the worry and do it now

    10. rdpx
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Surely if you've kept the faith with Sterling until now you have to keep him for the rest of the season?

      1. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Got him in over Xmas as a placeholder for Salah for DGW, City had great fixtures and Sterling is a differential aroudn these parts.

    Cantwell or Moutinho?

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

      This week Cantwell, neither after.

      1. Karhumies
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        This.

    2. Pukki Party

      Cantwell

  7. pingissimus

    Half a chance I suppose that KdB will get close to Henry’s 20 assists in a season 🙂

    1. Trophé Mourinho
        1 month, 7 days ago

        did Ozil got 24 all comps I believe, did Henry beat that?

      • _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        He'll beat the record with months to spare.

      • Better Call Raul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 7 days ago

        He's on track to beat it. Although Ozil looked nailed on to beat it a few years back and ended on 19

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Honestly may go back to Mousset after gw24 lol. Cheap af but only problem is I feel like I have to play him 🙂

      If Fab is out (likely) should i get Ryan or McCarthy? Both have great fixtures, McCarthy cheaper, Ryan better ppg.

      A. Ryan
      B McCarthy

        Ryan for me

        There are a couple of cheapo Southampton defenders who can be Kelly/Rico. Think that’s the best way into their defence.

        Also worry about Southampton defence reverting to type.

            Wolves usually score at home and west ham have score at home to pool 9/10 last games... but yeah my double mid might have influenced my predictions 😀

              Liverpool usually scores 2 goals it seems

              Penalty save, but after VAR there was encroachment and the penalty is retaken and it's a goal.

      Those that took a 2 week punt on Mahrez if he starts and scores again vs Palace will you still be shipping for Mo?

        Would make sense.

    7. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Feels like so long ago Kun was my placeholder for Mo for the DGW...

      Thinking a simple Soy>>Gomez for free is on the cards.

      Gives me
      Mane, TAA and Gomez which I can live with.

      Thoughts?

      1. Royal5

        Gomez had a shocker against Spurs. Bit risky if Matip is back soon.

        1. GloryManUnited
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeah he wasn’t great but he has been for the 5 weeks prior. I don’t think his place is at risk

          1. Royal5
            • 8 Years

            Not as long as Matip is out.

        Some sold for Ings.

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Easy switch. Already got him and Vardy. Consider downgrading to maybe Maupaypal or DCL. Upgrading Traore.

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year

        Keeping

      3. Hakim Ziyech

        but alot are selling

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year

          a lot* rather

      4. TAT
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Would've sold for Ings if the funds would have allowed me to get Salah. Instead I have to keep him (unless removing him for a hit for someone like DCL or a Watford triple-up with Deeney).

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Deeney is an option.

          1. TAT
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            If you can transfer him out for Deeney, then that's an option to consider. Not highly owned either, and I think he played well today. The whole Watford team did, really.

            1. Royal5
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Will consider it. Also looked at Sarr. Ty

              1. TAT
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                No problem! I was happy with the Sarr points this GW, but I could've brought in Mahrez instead, so…

      5. Karhumies
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Sold for Firmino 1GW earlier than the plan was.

        Tempted to shift for Firmino

      7. Whatever100

        Some have sold but i ask would they have sold if jimmy had scored at the weekend and ended up with 3 baps (which he very nearly did)? Reckon not.

        I am keeping personally and hope for some returns next week.

    9. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Hello professionals. What do we think of my professional moves? Time to bin United attack with those next 4 I think and time to load up on doubles.
      Martial + Rashford > Mane + Haller 2FTs
      Plan for GW24 is either Cantwell > Noble or Rico/Kiko > Brandon Williams/Spurs 4m

      Guaita
      TAA Lund Sidibe
      Salah Mane KDB Cantwell
      Vardy Haller Ings

      Traoré Rico Kiko

      Am I not looking good?

      1. Karhumies
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        WHA double up seems difficult to get rid of if they don't perform. Maybe just take one on board?

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Yeah the 4m defender shift is more likely. If I get Noble it will only be for the double really I’d play Traore over him most weeks.

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year

        I'm afraid I am much too clueless to help but I would if I could! x

          You’re not Ed we just have arrived at different ends of the luck rod x

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I'm scared of not owning Rash at home to Burnley but there's no other easy way for you to get Mane, right? Rash loves a shot and you know how bad Pope seems to be these days.

            1. Ask Yourself
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              That’s a good point but I think Haller x2 matches Rashford probably anyway. Mane miles better than martial so it’s a win win I think x

      Anyone getting in on the ground floor with B.Williams at 4.0? With Shaw injured again, he might already be nearly nailed.

      1. GloryManUnited
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Yes. Best 5th defender currently IMO. High upside and no pressure to start weekly in FPL terms

      2. Flynny

        Maybe tonight. See below

      I currently have exact funds to do Alli and Salah GW24 then Traore to Grealish GW25. But it seems like Salah is rising if not tonight then definitely during the week and Alli dropping. This will mean a 0.2 swing and will scupper my plans.

      Is it worth doing Alli to Salah or Grealish now for -4 to prevent the loss of value on Alli?

      Already used 1FT.

      1. ramunas

        If you're set on having Salah, presumably as 3rd LIV, then I'd probably take the hit and take account of the payback you'll likely get from GW24 - 31 good fixtures.
        Alternatively, do De Bruyne to Salah in GW24 instead and then you don't need to worry about the price rises/falls. I'm planning on moving him on around then, don't fancy the fixtures and he is playing deeper every week, 2 assists vs dire Villa notwithstanding

      Can't seem to break the spiral of red arrows - 7 and counting. DCL over Ings this week the latest in a long line of errors.

      Ryan
      TAA Ricardo Lund Kelly Rico
      Maddison KDB Mane Sarr Dendo
      Vardy Jimi DCL

      2.9 ITB.

      Aside from panic wildcarding what's the best route to a green arrow?

      1. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Ings IN...lose Rico

    16. T.Henry14
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      What about this:

      Martial, Richarlison and Abraham -----> Mane, Fleck and CalvertLewin

      Gains:

      1. Keep KDB
      2. Lpool cover for GW24 (and longer) TAA-Salah-Mane
      3. I'm not sacrificing Vardy or Rashford
      4. Calvert for Everton's cover

      Cantwell - Fleck rotation for 5th place in 3-4-3 formation.

      GW23: Cantwell vs Bou
      GW24: 4-3-3; Kelly vs SOU, Rico vs BHA, Soyuncu vs VHU & TAA
      GW25: Fleck vs Palace or Cantwell vs Newcastle
      GW26 & GW27: Fleck home games vs Brighton and Bournemouth
      ....
      Active WC too if I was going to mess.

      Minuses:
      1. No Spurs cover (but after GW24 I can do Salah/Mane to Son..)
      2. Throw out Richarlison when He is in good form.
      3. No D.Ings in my team. (if I do Salah/Mane to Son, I can upgrade DCL to Ings)

      My team after that:

      Ryan
      TAA, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Kelly, Rico
      Mane, Salah, KDB, Cantwell, Fleck
      Vardy, Rashford, DCL

      What do you think?

    17. Hart-ake
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Which one for a rotating 5th mid:

      a) Cantwell
      b) Traore
      c) CHO

        • Has Moderation Rights

        You'll want to play CHO every week. a) as cheapest.

        1. Hart-ake
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I am not so sure with Chelsea's fixtures 24-27?

          Cantwell is certainly the frontrunner.

    18. BEEZUS
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      For GW24?:

      A) Robbo, Dendo, Rash
      B) Robbo, Martial, Deeney
      C) Robbo, Doucoure, Jimi
      D) Gomez, Sarr, Rash

      With 2FT's and only the exact funds to do Sterling> Salah next GW, I want to downgrade Jiminez, he's tough fixtures ahead and releasing some cash would be handy. I already have Ings.

      So who is cheaper (

      1. Reiger
