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.

              Nice, might change it up in 24 if 2 FTs.

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      No chance. I’d be looking at a Watford defender if anything

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Did you see them v Liverpool, Allison was quality

            Spurs won't struggle to score.

  3. rdpx

    1... Rashford/Alli out for Salah/Ings in.

    2... Gomez as third LIV player, and spread the Salah cash about

    ?

        Rashford will be hard to remove

  4. BellyKlopp

    Which (if any) fpl podcasts do u guys listen to

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      You used to watch/listen scoutcast

  5. T.Henry14
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    bottomed

    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?

  6. Whats the Huth
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Smallest of red arrow for me. Down 150 spots

  7. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Salah and Mane double up kills the flexibility and with those fixtures can't sell either

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yep.
      Mane out to fund Kun after the double is probably on the cards

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Not for me. Aguero not nailed to start and even if he does start will get subbed early.

        Will keep Mane till end of season. Paid 11.5 for him.

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          If Salah doesnt score much in the DGW then downgrade

        2. Whats the Huth
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Who were you looking at getting in? If you need flexibility

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

      Naaa

  10. MGD
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Williams an option at 4.0?

    1. Hart-ake
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yes but not as a regular starter.

    2. A Dog Has Its Day
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yes but expect Shaw to play the tougher games. Williams should start vs Burnley.

  11. Mo Salah No Mane
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Climbed 600k places thanks to Aguero captain.
    Finally getting a captain differential right.
    Now I hope my luck continues and that I continue to climb.

    Did anyone watch the Brighton game? How did Maupay look? Stats don't look good but his next 2 fixtures look decent.

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      DCL not worth the extra 0.1m?

        Already have Richarlison and Sidibé. Not comfortable with triple up.

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years

          Maupay does have the fixtures

    2. Mo Salah No Mane

      Most amazing turnaround I’ve ever seen... 41 unanswered points.

    For those maybe considering Aguero, it's worth noting that when his fixtures turn tricky in a few weeks coincides nicely with Aubameyang returning from suspension and starting a long run of good fixtures. So there's an easy out.

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Aubamayang playimg so deep though and being forced to track back.

    Hold sterling for 1 more week? Then swap to Salah for the double.

    This was my plan for next GW:

    McCarthy - (Henderson)
    TAA - Maitland - Sidibe - (Lund - Soy)
    Sterling(c) - KDB - Mane - Cantwell - (Mooy*)
    Vardy - Maupay - DCL

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yes
      Also he should start
      But maybe Pep doesn't rotate this team except at the back

    65 points and tiny green arrow.
    Meh 😐

    1. Whats the Huth

      Better than my 61 and a tiny red

        You are doing well this season. Whats your next transfer?

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Saving.
          I’m looking at downgrading my defence.
          Sidibé to Holgate.
          Söyüncü to Stephens.
          Which will raise funds for me.
          As I’m in a similar boat as you. Lack of flexibility in my team. But having 1.6m ITB will allow me more room to flex

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 4 Years

            Yourself?

      61 points and up from 305,000 to.....299,000! Hard work, ain't it!

    could Alli score well against Watford this weekend?

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Yes

    2. circusmonkey

      Yeah but Wtf-Ford are a different animal.

    So is Grealish not on pens? was one of the reasons I brought him in.

    1. Le Tigre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I’m thinking of selling to help fund salah move

    2. Royal5

    Martial > Richarlison for free? (Got Rashford)

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Why not but Rich's fixtures also turn in 27

  24. BigBillyBass
    • 1 Year

    Still can’t decide who was worse today Villa or Bournemouth

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year

      Still can't believe people had us on par with them and Norwich lol

    Ederson and Zaha to McCarthy and Mahrez: For or against? (For free).

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      For

  26. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    A) Ryan
    B) Foster

    1) Sarr
    2) Doucoure
    3) Grealish

    ...or McCarthy & Moura?

    Brighton and Watford fixtures looking good, edging towards Ryan & Sarr/Doucoure.

    Cheers

    I am so thankful to almighty Aguerooo moment happened before VAR introduction.

    Has anyone done a -8 or even a -12 this year? Thoughts on hits?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Done a -12 , don't mind hits if the are + points after

    2. KAPTAIN KANTWELL
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I took my first hit of the season this gameweek just gone (-4).
      I'm usually erratic with them but this season trying to be more conservative.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Just 1 x -8, easy green arrow.

    4. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      For me, a hit is a success if it results in a green arrow that week. By that standard, a -8 or -12 is a tough hill to climb.

    5. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      No. Just wildcard.

    6. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Depends. I've had mix results this season

    7. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I've taken a -8 twice. One produced an immediate green arrow and the other paid off after the second week.

  29. KAPTAIN KANTWELL

    Alli to Mahrez for free a no brainer?

    1. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Not really
      Spurs are due and Mahrez could easily get rotated

      1. KAPTAIN KANTWELL
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        The Alli drop tonight a reason

      2. A-L
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Spurs' defence has been mid-table level this season at best. Mahrez is getting selected more often now and has one of the best PPM for a midefielder...

    2. A-L
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Or Richarlison? I really can't decide.

  30. Fantasyamateur
    • 4 Years

    Pope
    TAA - Lundstram - Soyuncu
    Mane - Cantwell - Maddison - Richarlison
    DCL - Vardy - Rashford

    Bench: Stekelenburg, James, Rico, Reid.

    5M ITB and 1FT.

    Plan:
    GW23: Rashford to Maupay.
    GW24: James to Salah.

    Seems alright? No City a bit of a killer, but not too tempting with the upcoming fixtures.. Same with Ings and Southampton, might switch DCL to him in a few GWs.
