Recapping the best Manchester United players ahead of FPL restart

Our series of team-by-team refresher articles continues with a look at Manchester United, as the clock ticks down on the Fantasy Premier League resumption in June.

Taking data from Gameweeks 24-29 as a jumping-off point for wider discussion, we will be analysing the Red Devils’ prospects for the season run-in and pinpointing the Fantasy assets who could prosper in the remaining nine Gameweeks.

United certainly have one of the more appealing fixture schedules in Gameweeks 30+ to 38+, playing only one of the ‘big six’ and half a dozen of the clubs currently in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

In decent form shortly before coronavirus stopped play, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will also welcome back Marcus Rashford (£8.8m) and Paul Pogba (£8.3m) from injury when we recommence this month.

With this article borrowing heavily from the data available in our Members Area, only subscribers of Fantasy Football Scout can read on.

    Are people overlooking Vardy?

      Prob avoiding for DGW reasons.

      Not really. There are just too many great options available

      I hope he punishes them 😀
      I am just too reluctant to let him go

      He’s in my current team, and I’m FHing just so I get him back

    Anything you would change in my bb team? (I don't have a wildcard left)

    DDG Ramsdale
    TAA Doherty Egan Basham Lascelles
    KDB Salah Barnes Grealish Saka
    Aguero Rashford Jota

      I wouldn’t have de gea in but I can see why for following gameweeks

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 18 days ago

        I wouldn't pick him if I had a wildcard left

        1. Exeterslowly
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 18 days ago

          Yeah fair enough. I think he might get you clean sheets but I don’t think he will get you the save points as say hendo and you can take advantage of his DW

      Swap saka can’t see him getting many minutes in the double gameweek

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Cantwell is the other option

    KDB or Kun captain?

    Really tough one as I am not convinced Kun will start both

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Aguero. Tormenting defences that have no match fitness.

    2. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      Yeah I’ve gone for aguerooooooo. But I agree with you that his chances of starting both games could be slim. He has better scoring points so probably right choice?

    Morning guys, currently between these 2 combos, but I don't have a wildcard so having to consider the long term.

    A) Egan Boly Mane Auba
    B) Stevens Doherty Son Kun

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 18 days ago

      A. But can you get cheap fodder and Saiss for Boly to fit Aguero in there?

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 18 days ago

        Probably yeah. Thanks.

    Will Pogba get much gametime and how will that impact on Bruno's FPLness?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years

      Pogba should get plenty of minutes. I think he'll be given every opportunity to impress.

      From what I know about OGS & United's gameplay from recent history i think Pogba McTomnay will play double pivot & Bruno will be given a free role to rome between 8 to 10.

      Pens would stay with him only until he misses 2/3 in a row. So i think Pogba returning would impact nicely on United's overall gameplay.

      As for FPL, i think Bruno's output won't change much. But Tony & Rashford will become very potent with double creative force behind them. It all depends upon which Pogba is playing though.
      He can be pain in the ass too 😀

    Okay so I really need some opinions on this one. Used my WC to this team before the break (can't even recall what my thinking was at the time). But how many of these players would you feel confident keeping for the remainder of the fixtures? Have BB and FH to use. Not sure which to use for 30+.

    Leno/ Pope

    TAA/ Doherty/ VvD/ Egan/ Kabasele

    Salah/ KDB/ Sarr/ Saka/ Hayden

    Auba/ Jota/ Jimi

      Kevin probably

    Anyone else thinking of doubling up on Aguero and Jesus with FH, 5 subs could give them both ample scoring opportunities?
