Fernandes close to ‘must-have’ as Pogba’s return bolsters Man United attack

Spurs 1-1 Man United

  • Goals: Steven Bergwijn (£7.4m) | Bruno Fernandes (£8.6m)
  • Assists: Serge Aurier (£4.9m) | Paul Pogba (£8.3m)
  • Bonus Points: Bergwijn x3, B Fernandes x2, Hugo Lloris x1 (£5.3m)

In Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Spurs, Bruno Fernandes (£8.6m) continued his relentless flurry of Fantasy points as if he had never been away.

Despite the three-month gap since his last match, the Portuguese international was arguably the Red Devils’ best player once again, orchestrating things from midfield and getting on the scoresheet in the process.

Fernandes’ 81st-minute penalty was his sixth attacking return since joining Manchester United, who have scored nine times since his Gameweek 25 debut.

Now that the former Sporting Lisbon midfielder has been involved in 66.7% of his club’s goals during that time, he is quickly becoming a near-essential asset. Appealing fixtures for Manchester United between now and the end of the season are a huge draw but Fernandes continues to shoot on sight, with tremendous accuracy to boot, no matter the distance.

Furthermore, he has now consolidated his hold over the club’s penalty-taking duties after the draw at Spurs.

His initial spell of games for Manchester United came at a time when Marcus Rashford (£8.8m) and Paul Pogba (£8.3m) were absent but he has now taken a total of three spot-kicks since their return, two in a friendly and one in competitive action.

Crucially, both of those colleagues were on the pitch when he stood up to convert the penalty, Pogba the man who had shown the drive and guile to win it in the first place.

However, Fernandes’ Fantasy owners may still be a little wary of Rashford, who does appear keen to remain in the spot-kick conversation.

Manchester United were awarded a second penalty in the closing stages, this time won by Fernandes himself. While the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) was checking the foul, it was Rashford who claimed the ball and had to give it back to Jonathan Moss when it was chalked off.

Meanwhile, Fantasy managers were given live evidence of how much improved Manchester United assets will be with their key players returned to full fitness. That’s because they were below the levels set pre-lockdown in the first half, perhaps admittedly as a result of the long lay-off.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were transformed when Pogba was introduced just after the hour. Brought on for Fred (£5.3m), the Frenchman formed an effective central midfield partnership with Scott McTominay (£4.9m) and later Nemanja Matić (£4.8m).

As already mentioned, it was Pogba’s drive and skill into the box that earned United’s penalty, but his range of passing was key to revitalising his team’s attack.

There was some excellent link-up with Fernandes, which bodes well for the Portuguese international’s credentials as the number 10 moving forward, while Pogba won the pass-of-the-match award for a cross-field defence-splitting deep-ball to Rashford that most NFL quarterbacks would be proud of.

“Of course (it is exciting to have Bruno and Pogba playing together). We’re a club that wants the best players in the world playing together. We just need to find a balance of attacking and defending. Paul showed he can play with Bruno.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Even before the Frenchman’s introduction, there was plenty to admire from Rashford. The striker, who spent most of this match in his newfound role on the left-hand side of the attack, had the best effort of the first half, denied by Hugo Lloris (£5.3m). However, with Fernandes proving to be the new hub of United’s attacking output, Rashford has serious competition for places in Fantasy squads, unless managers are prepared to double-up.

Owners of Anthony Martial (£8.0m) were also unfortunate not to come away with something from the match. He went closest to scoring for the visitors before they got back into the game.

In the 65th minute, Luke Shaw (£5.4m) won possession from Serge Aurier (£4.9m) in a dangerous area, pressed on around the back and dragged it back to Martial. The French international collected the ball well, shifted it onto his left, blasting a high powerful effort across the goalkeeper, which seemed destined for the top corner – only for his compatriot Lloris to tip over in spectacular style.

However, for all their second-half persistence and promise, Manchester United did look naive defensively, susceptible to the counter-attack on more than one occasion.

It was in the 27th minute that they were caught out in midfield, Aurier intercepting a loose ball and freeing up Steven Bergwijn (£7.4m) to run at an out-position back-line. With Shaw too far up the field, Harry Maguire (£5.3m) was left exposed to his lack of pace by the rapid Dutchman. He pushed through the middle and fired an effort at David De Gea (£5.3m), which the Spaniard poorly deflected into his own net. The prospect of Dean Henderson (£5.3m) taking over as the number one goalkeeper for Solskjaer’s men next season already looks increasingly likely.

In the aftermath of the goal, Solskjaer swapped Maguire with his centre-back partner Victor Lindelöf (£5.3m), as well as pushing Martial onto the left and allowing Rashford through the middle for a few minutes. Despite that tactical tweak, United were soon left open again.

It was Bergwijn who caused the problems again. He found space out-wide against Shaw, looping a cross to Son Heung-min (£9.7m) at the far post.

Operating on the left-hand side of the attacking midfield trio, the South Korean headed an effort back across goal, forcing a save from De Gea – although to save ourselves from Roy Keane’s sharp tongue, we’ll steer away from describing its quality.

Even in the second half, United did look vulnerable every time Spurs broke on them, and it must be said that their back-line is still somewhat unsettled. 

When Lindelöf had to come off, Matic replacing him, McTominay dropped back to play centre-back for 10 minutes. He was then replaced by Eric Bailly (£4.9m), who Manchester United fans may want to see more of soon.

Even though their defensive issues improved after Pogba’s introduction, it may be wise to limit investment in Manchester United to their attacking assets, despite their appealing upcoming fixtures.

Spurs’ schedule is also relatively eye-catching, especially their next few home matches.

It is certainly worth noting that Bergwijn has continued his record of scoring in every home league game since arriving at Spurs, having netted three from three now.

However, Fantasy managers were left a little bit disappointed in what they saw from Harry Kane (£10.8m) and Son, who were both making returns from long lay-offs.

It was the centre-forward who was the most uninspiring, producing just one shot against Manchester United, outside the box and off-target. Kane is historically a slow-starter to new campaigns, so we could see a similar story during the Project Restart fixtures, especially as he has not played in some time.

“Really happy to see people like Harry, Sonny, Moussa four months without playing, Harry six months without playing, and then giving us 90 minutes, I think from the boys I can only be really happy with them.” – Jose Mourinho

Spurs’ attacking threat did dwindle in the latter stages of Friday’s encounter, which is perhaps not surprising given the make-up of the two benches.

José Mourinho was without both Dele Alli (£8.3m) and Lucas Moura (£7.1m) through suspension and injury respectively, limiting his ability to add fresh legs to the attack. Perhaps with Alli returning next time and if Moura can recover from his injury, Spurs will pose more of a threat for a more sustained period against West Ham in Gameweek 31+.

“We played with Bergwijn, Lamela, Kane and Son, and our bench was very strong in defensive options. We had Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen on the bench but we didn’t have Lucas or Dele or Lamela or Bergwijn. Imagine Bergwijn on the bench and Lucas playing and coming out minute 60-65 and Bergwijn coming for the last period, I can imagine the impact that we could have. So a bit of frustration but at the same time really happy with the players.” – Jose Mourinho

Finally, uncertainty reigns supreme over the defensive situation at Spurs, not that they have been particularly productive from a Fantasy perspective this season.

Eric Dier (£4.8m) was paired with Davinson Sánchez (£5.3m) at centre-back and had a mixed evening. Occupying the left-side slot of the partnership, for most of the night, it looked as if the England international was the answer to the issues Spurs have had there this season, considering Jan Vertonghen‘s (£5.2m) well-documented struggles. However, despite a mostly solid game, Dier gave away the penalty against Pogba, and was close to conceding another one before VAR overturned. Despite those two moments, Mourinho heaped praise on Dier post-match, but gave his backing to Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld (£5.3m), perhaps indicating that, in this new post-coronavirus world, we could see rotation at centre-back too.

“Eric (Dier) was perfect. I think he had a very strong performance and he was imposing his leadership, physicality, he won absolutely every ball in the air, and won absolutely ever duel. It was a difficult match for Martial, we know he’s a very good player. I think Davinson for the 90 minutes made one technical mistake, not a tactical mistake, which handed them the only chance they had in the first half with Rashford’s shot. I’m really happy with them, but really happy with Toby and Jan. So at the moment, we have four central defenders and no problems.” – Jose Mourinho

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; B Davies, Dier, D Sánchez, Aurier; Winks, Sissoko; Son, Lamela (G Fernandes 70′), Bergwijn (Lo Celso 70′); Kane.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf (Matić 78′), Wan-Bissaka; Fred (Pogba 63′), McTominay (Bailly 89′); Rashford, B Fernandes, D James (Greenwood 62′); Martial (Ighalo 78′).

    Sarr and Justin start! Get in!

      Hedging I see.

      I’ve gone for a 3-3 with Vardy and Sarr

  2. Bruce Lee

    3 months, 8 hours ago

    Might ruffle some feathers here, but I can't see Bruno's rate of returns staying as they are.

    He has a lot of long shots, which is great but compared to someone like Son or Rashford they get the bigger chances and clearer opportunities to score.
    He has great creative stats and I can see him assisting a lot.

    2 of his 3 goals were from pennos.

    Who knows, United get like 10 penalties a game so maybe he will continue.

    Great pick and great value for money. I just prefer the likes of Mane, KDB, Son.

    1. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      But because of the amount of penalties they get (Cough) he'll score often. Set pieces as well.

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Lol exactly. United get a bunch of penalties somehow.

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      KDB type IMO. Maybe not as good though. Am I right in saying Rashford was going to take the "second" penalty?

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Yeah he was. KDB-esque is a good example. I was thinking something like Neves with far better creativity and pens.

        Yeah Rashford was on the 2nd one. I do think Bruno will continue to take 1st pennos though. 2 of his 3 goals are penalties.

      Fernandes is the most overrated player itw now. He's making bad decisions, always prefer long shots rather than passes. Almost all his fpoints are a big lucky. Pickford howler, 2 pens. His xA/90 is 0.22. That's a LAUGH, sorry. But i hear a lot about him from every source. That's a bit annoying tbh.

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        He is talked up a lot here. Maybe he will continue with his pens, but I'd rather have someone like Son or Mane.

      And? On a WC you ill have all of them(plus Bruno)

  3. Bambi
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 hours ago

    Im starting to think stevie Bergwijn may be a better value option than Son. Son and Kane made a lot of the same runs last night and a lot of the time it was Bergwijn who had the space.

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      Check goal threat stats if you can...

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years

      I agree

    3. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      MUCH better value too

    4. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      My thoughts too.

  4. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 hours ago

    Would you trade Sarr for Bergwijn? Or just Aurier for the fine fixtures ... can't afford Son.

    Lineups?

  6. The_FF_King

    I’m thinking that wildcard would be better in GW32, and Free Hit for GW31.

    Anyone agree?

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      I’m on FH 32, WC 33
      I think midweek games in 31 after first GW will see rotation (It will settle) and may waste the chip

    2. Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      I would WC 33 if you can, get past the FA Cup games and use that info as well on the WC.

    3. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      I've just done wildcard and I'm holding onto the FH to see how things pan out. Had to WC really after going heavy on DGW players for this GW

      Leicester have a great opportunity to put even more air between themselves and the rest of top 4 after Spurs United drew last night. Watford have very little to play for on paper.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Agreed - PL survival is deeply overrated

                3 months, 8 hours ago

                I was annoyed that I didn’t slow wildcard saka out of the team for cantwell during the break. Glad I didn’t now.

        Thinking of taking a -8 to get rid of O'Connell / Cantwell + 1 other, then bring in Martial and BB GW31.

        Team look worth it?

        McCarthy - Krul
        TAA - Doherty - Holgate - Lascelles - Taylor
        Salah - KDB - - Fernandes - Martial - Barnes
        Auba - DCL - Jota

        My last spot on my WC is for a 9.7m attacker. Who should I go for?

        A) Vardy

        B) Son

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Vardy

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year

          Wait to see how Leicester do today.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            This, but it's probably going to still be Vardy after the game.

        3. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 hours ago

          Vardy for me. Focal point of every Leicester attack, on pens and will play most of every game.

        4. Bruce Lee
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 hours ago

          B

        5. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 hours ago

          Dare to say Firmino for this week?

      5. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Bergwijn looks good and is great in the bonus but seeing Mourinho’s comments on Moura worries me.

        1. GreennRed
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 hours ago

          He won't take Bergwijn's place, Mourinho was talking about better attacking options on the bench. Would be more worried about Spurs lack of attacking intent and if they improve that they have have a few scoring options besides Bergwijn.

          1. Bruce Lee
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            I've heard comments about Spur's lack of attacking intent in the last page, but I compared United vs Spurs since GW13 (when Mourinho came in)... the results are surprising.

            1. GreennRed
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 8 hours ago

              Yeah but last night between scoring and United scoring they were too deep. Showed United way too much respect, seemed to be watching GPS stats more than how the game was unfolding. Should have left Lamela on longer too, not a big fan of his but he was playing well. Then Mourinho came on whinging about the quality of United's bench over Spurs. Some of the United strength in depth starting and subbed were players that Solskaer gave a chance to after he left!

              1. Bruce Lee
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 8 hours ago

                True, last night was a bad example, but I think Mou tends to do that in big games. I can't see them getting a goal and sitting back against the likes of West Ham (unless they score really late on).

            2. Bennerman
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 8 hours ago

              What's that got to do with last night? Spurs were very passive and offered hardly anything going forward, apart from the goal and then a 10/15-minute spell

              1. Bruce Lee
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 8 hours ago

                So what happened last night will be repeated against West Ham, Burnley, Aston Villa etc?

                1. Bennerman
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 8 hours ago

                  No, I was on about last night's game, presumably you didn't watch it.

                  I still think Spurs will do OK v the rubbish teams and will look to get a player or two.

          2. Athletic Nasherbo
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            He mentioned Moura starting and Bergwijn coming on. Plus imagine he gets taken off early most games anyway

        2. Bruce Lee

        Will settle for a 10 pointer from Party - happy for him to stay off WC template. The hattie can be next week.

          Is Vardy off the WC template?

          I am surprised there is so much love for Liverpool. Title will be wrapped up soon and then there will be rotation galore. Would think the template would form around:

          Vardy, Rashford, Abraham
          KDB, Son, Fernandes
          Doherty, TAA, Lundstram
          Pope

            U can easily offload salah/mane after the title is won. Until yhen u have ti have then
            I dont actually see much rotiation for pool. Think theyll go for poonts record.

            Would keep then until we actually see any rotation

            Seen lots of Abraham hype alright, suppose he has the fixtures for sure & Chelsea should be very motivated...

            I'm just personally skeptical following his 7 goals from 2 XG in GW3, 4,5 (there's freakish and then there's FREAKISH) stacked up against 6G 5A in the other 26 gameweeks, of which he appeared in 22...

            If GW3-5 Tammy turns up, owners will be more than happy though!

            Just wonder at the Werner signing too, is Frank getting a bit impatient with him maybe

              Agree, Tammy is a little bit of a punt

          Having decided to go without Pool mids till WC33+, I would quite like other heavy hitters to shake up the template.

          FPL tells you next to the fixtures beneath your team. They have Palace v Burnley in GW32. Must have cost them 20p.

            20p lollll

        Need one goal for Vardy to cash in my 100€ bet of 20+ goals in the season. Got 9.0 odds pre season. Then he can stop scoring.

          7.0** odds not nine.

          just tinkering around with possible WC teams and this is the best I can do, what do you think?

          Pope - 3.9
          TAA - Boly - Lascelles - C.Taylor - Robinson
          Salah - KdB - Bruno F - Son - Martial
          Jota - Jiminez - Nketiah

          3-5-2 most weeks

            not sure I'd go with Jimi and Jota but aside form that looks really good

          If TAA, Son, Bruno, KdB, Salah. Who to join Jimenez and DCL: Vardy or Rashford?

          1. Bambi
            • 8 Years

            Jota? and invest somewhere else?

            1. Bambi
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 8 hours ago

              but out of those two, Rash

            hard to say - probably Rash cos he's less expensive

          Fernandes is the most overrated player itw now. He's making bad decisions, always prefer long shots rather than passes. Almost all his fpoints are a big lucky. Pickford howler, 2 pens. His xA/90 is 0.22. That's a LAUGH, sorry. But i hear a lot about him from every source. That's a bit annoying tbh.

            You must be very pleased everyone is bringing him in then. If you are right he will fail and you gain OR rank.

            I think it is fair to say there is a little too much hype around him, given the fairly short period he has been playing for UTD, but to call him the most overrated player in the world and put any positives about his abilities down to luck is going too far in the other direction. You clearly have a reason to want to disparage him that is unrelated to his actually quality, or lack of it as the case may be in your opinion.
