Pogba’s impact on Fernandes’ FPL credentials as Martial bags hat-trick

Manchester United 3-0 Sheffield United

  • Goals: Anthony Martial x3 (£8.0m)
  • Assists: Marcus Rashford x2 (£8.9m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m)
  • Bonus Points: Martial x3, Wan-Bissaka x2, Rashford x1

Anthony Martial (£8.0m) blasted all other Manchester United attacking assets out of the water as he scored a hat-trick in Wednesday evening’s 3-0 win over Sheffield United.

There had been a wealth of interest in the Red Devils for Gameweek 31+ as the Blades were set to visit Old Trafford without Dean Henderson (£5.3m), John Egan (£4.6m) and Jack O’Connell (£4.6m) and it turned out that Fantasy managers were right to expect a one-sided affair.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men made light work of the visiting side, carving through the second-string defence with relative ease.

However, where the majority of managers were let down was the captaincy, with nearly 20% of voters in our latest poll handing the armband to Bruno Fernandes (£8.7m). 

While the Portuguese international was recording a first blank since his Gameweek 25 debut, he was a little overshadowed as a creative force in the midfield by Paul Pogba (£8.3m), who, himself was making a first league start since Gameweek 7.

The Frenchman was officially deployed in the deeper central midfield pairing with Nemanja Matic (£4.8m) but in a fluid set-up, Pogba pushed forward to sometimes step on Fernandes’ toes.

The latter was still a creative presence in the team but on this occasion, had to share those duties with the man next to him – arguably a factor in his unexpected blank.

That said, Fernandes was perhaps a little unfortunate not to come away with something, as he watched an excellent first-half free-kick from the left batted over by visiting goalkeeper Simon Moore (£4.3m).

Shortly afterwards, Harry Maguire (£5.3m) nodded in one of the midfielder’s corners, only to see it ruled out for a push on Phil Jagielka (£4.1m).

It is no surprise that the options in more advanced positions were the ones to fully capitalise on Sheffield United’s vulnerable defence, namely hat-trick hero Martial and left-forward Marcus Rashford (£8.9m).

While Pogba’s presence limited Fernandes’ monopoly on creativity, there is no doubting that the Manchester United attack is much more powerful with them playing together.

With such excellent service, the man spearheading the front-four was perhaps always destined to mop up the goals.

With favourable fixtures still on the horizon for Manchester United, there is almost certainly going to be interest in Martial, whose game-time was managed in the 79th minute. Brighton, Bournemouth and Aston Villa are the Red Devils next three opponents

Despite the two assists, Rashford owners might have hoped for slightly more from the forward. He had a rather mixed evening, linking up nicely with Martial but squandering a few chances to get on the score-sheet himself, much as he did against Spurs.

The most gilt-edged of those happened in the 12th minute when Martial squared to him from close-range, the England international uncharacteristically spooning the easy opportunity wide. Seven minutes later, Rashford spurned another opportunity, Pogba playing him through with a lovely chipped ball – but the forward could only swing an air-kick at it.

His owners are unlikely to have too many concerns going into Gameweek 32+ though, especially as it’s Brighton up next. Rashford, like Martial, Fernandes and Pogba, was hauled off as part of a quintuple substitution in the 79th minute once the game had been closed out.

That change helped Manchester United see out a clean sheet, their fourth in as many home matches. Those looking to invest at that end of the pitch for the Red Devils could do worse than Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m) who assisted one of Martial’s goals. The former Crystal Palace man offered very little going forward when he first joined Solskjaer’s outfit but he is becoming increasingly useful from his right-back position. Between Gameweeks 1 and 25, Wan-Bissaka had assisted only once, but he has now set up two league goals since Gameweek 26.

Sheffield United’s attack continues to offer very little, registering a third successive blank since the Premier League restart at Old Trafford.

Chris Wilder made some changes to the team for this encounter, handing rare starts to Lys Mousset (£4.5m) and David McGoldrick (£5.4m), but neither was able to get into the game. The former was replaced by Oli McBurnie (£5.7m) at half-time, who had more of a sniff in the second half but could not trouble David De Gea (£5.3m) to any great extent.

As Wilder strives to find a solution to the problems going forward, Fantasy managers will increasingly target the Blades for clean sheet fodder in the remaining Gameweeks. 

We recently documented the improvements made to Spurs’ defence, so owners of Serge Aurier (£4.9m) may be particularly encouraged to see a trip to Sheffield United next on his schedule.

Meanwhile, Burnley and Wolves have been offering defensive options for the remainder of 2019/20, namely Nick Pope (£4.9m), Matt Doherty (£6.4m) and Romain Saïss (£4.6m), who face Sheffield United in Gameweeks 33+ and 34+ respectively.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; Matic, Pogba (McTominay 80’); Rashford (D James 80’), B Fernandes (A Pereira 80’), Greenwood (Mata 80’); Martial (Ighalo 80’).

Sheffield United XI: Moore; Robinson, Jagielka, Basham; Stevens, Fleck, Norwood (Berge 46’), Lundstram, Baldock; McGoldrick (Zivkovic 64’), Mousset (McBurnie 46’).

    Play DCL (LEI) or Aurier (shu)?

    1. Catastrophe

      DCL

    2. Hazz

        Same here the momentum is with defence at the mo

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam

      i like to go for attack so dcl. but aurier a good shout too. i have both

        That's also my traditional view. The number of clean sheets since restart is significant, may tail off but shall we not ride the wave?

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Aurier

    It's unbelievable that Carlsen is leading the game again. He had Son (c) for -2 as well at one point. Scored 26 points that week. Shows how with just a bit of persistence, you can keep climbing and get back into a prime spot.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Depressing that it looks easy to him this game?

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

        He'll be the first to admit he's gotten very lucky this season. Right before the restart he jumped on Jota and Doherty at literally the perfect time.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A true champ 🙂

    3. Make America Greta Again

      He's a genius, I thought he'd be winning by 100 points to be honest. His loyalty to Mo as captain has worked out well.

  4. abaalan

    Last minute wc change of Martial -> Richarlison at 4.59pm, then miss changing Bruno (c) -> Jimenez (c) by 10 seconds :(((

    1. Dino

      I spent a bit of time looking at my wc but panicked when I saw 16.56 on the clock and forgot what changes I'd made in defence. Stuck with Cathcart who has been dropped by Watford and Robinson for Sheffield instead of sais and fenenia as I had planned. Have a decent score but you really don't want to be left with shirty transfers like those to sort out after you have played your wildcard

        I doubt it. Last year yes, now nope imo. Jesus hasn't passed the eye test and he has competition for that spot.

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Define "big team"s and does that definition mean anything if Jimenez is not there?

      1. sinik
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Taken from elsewhere, but with 3 penalties, Jimi's ratio is 0.41, so just outside the list.

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        That list goes beyond mid-table now 😆

    Martial's gonna rise tonight isn't he?!
    Was on -10% or so when I checked at the end of the game, now on +84%

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I'd suspect not, but you never know.

    Last week into top 10k

    This week tried to get clever in wildcard instead of usual safe plays. Salah and DCL -> Vardy and Richarlison

    Goodbye top 10k

    1. JabariParkersEyelid

        Feel for you, was bold just didn't break your way.

        1. TomSaints
          • 2 Years

          What the game is all about. Could be sitting top 5k with small swings in fortune!

      • HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Same boat - WC and brought in Vardy and Richarlison ... what's the plan now?

        I was expecting to get Mahrez (or Martial) instead of Richarlison in gw33 and hoping Tammy would be viable instead of Vardy.

    2. Pia06rc
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Which should I do

      A) Tammy to Rashford (c) - 4
      B) Play Lundstram (TOT) or Nketiah (Not)

      1. Pia06rc
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        NOR*

      2. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        A

    3. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Best move this week for me? Still got BB to use so need to start planning for that too. 0.8 ITB.

      Thoughts on Leno and Lunds to Martinez and Aurier and BB this week?

      Leno Pope
      TAA Maguire Doherty Fernandez Lunds
      Salah KDB Saka Son Bruno
      DCL Jimi Jota

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

        Yes I would- thinking same after looking at team and fixtures but for hit-

        1. Rinseboy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          thanks yeah my bench would end up being Martinez Saka Fernandez and Aurier which looks pretty good based on fixtures

    4. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Bench one :

      A : Mount
      B : Grealish
      C : Nketiah

      1. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        B, Wolves look tight at the back.

      2. Pia06rc
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        C

    5. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Is TAA a legitimate captaincy option next season? To the point that you could start the season without any players who are over £10m?
      No Salah, Mane, Aguero, Kane or KDB at the start would leave a a large pot of money for owning players of the calibre of Doherty, Van Dijk, Martial, Son, Jimenez and Ings etc.
      Only 10 points behind Salah although TAA has played 4 extra games.

      1. Qaiss
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        TAA should be at least 8.5 though. They need to price players harshly so the game is harder and people don't all have the same team.

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Agree

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He's a legitimate captaincy option but I don't think you should start without a few of those big hitters. I'm gonna build around Salah, KdB and TAA.

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Just early speculation as the game is all about chasing value and we won't know where that is until prices come out. I would definitely own the premiums during the season but when money is tight early on it could be a good way of putting out a strong starting 11.

      3. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He's a legitimate captaincy option this season.

        Points are harder to predict, though.

        Problem is, his ownership is so high, everyone will get half of those captain points anyway. I guess that's the same situation as Salah, though.

      4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I think he definitely, definitely is - some updated TAA stat attacks:

        - He is now level on points with Mane
        - Only 10 points behind Salah for the season
        - Over 30 points clear of the next highest scoring defender
        - Over 50 (five-zero!) points clear of the next highest non-Liverpool defender
        - More points than any striker in the game
        - More points than anyone in the game - bar KDB, Mo & Mane (see above)
        - Most assists (14) in the league apart from KDB (19)
        - 43 appearances since returning from injury in GW26 of last season
        - In those 43 appearances he has accumulated 46 FPL returns
        - I.e. 3 goals, 23 assists & 20 cleansheets

        This is getting ridiculous - looking at it the other way aside from captaincy - what price would stop you signing him next year?

        A. 8.0 (he surely won’t be any lower than this??)
        B. 8.5
        C. 9.0
        D. 9.5

        I think I’d honestly be fine with D

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

          I'd pay 9m for him easily.

        2. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yeah, maybe no one should mention this until he's been priced up next season. I'd be surprised if he was higher than £8m as they normally go for about the price players finish the season but I would also pay anything under £10m.

        3. BC1 - Brazil Nuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Nice one, hopefully 9.0

        4. TomSaints
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          At higher than 8.5 I think it’s harder to justify than another Liverpool defender like VVD. Still an absolute monster and I think I’ll (c) before season end

      5. STRANGER INGS
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Would e interesting to see his price lol... we might have an 8.5m defender at this rate

        1. Qaiss
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Has to be.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          He's a steal at 8.5m honestly. 9.5m is probably the fairest price considering what he can do.

    6. Vazza
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Maguire or Wan Bissaka?

          So who are people thinking of captaining next gameweek?

          I was thinking Rashford (away to brighton)

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Rashy for my squad.

          2. Strchld
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Rashford

            Well for my team Aubameyang is the obvious choice but I’m so worried he will not start that one! Maybe Jiménez otherwise

          6. Ajax Hamsterdam

            salah i think.

          FYI Wilder said Jack O'Connell “hopefully back for the weekend”
          https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/teams/sheffield-united/12014223/wilder-they-were-far-better-than-us
          So would guess than 4.0m Robinson will be short-lived

            Let’s hope

            Triple Sheffield defence, that’s definitely left over from the DGW 🙂 good luck!

              Yer lol thought I still had WC left so used unlimited transfers gutted my team was decent as well! Best 4.3m defender to replace Kelly and play instead of one of my Shef u defenders? Lascelles Holgate or Taylor

                • 3 Years

                Lascelles as most nailed, other two may be rotated

        6. Vazza
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Maguire or Wan Bissaka?

              Stevens to Aurier maybe?
              Or save FT

                I'm thinking about Stevens to Aurier. Looks interesting.

                  Yeah, given you already have Egan
                  Or you could fix Leno or Nyland? LIV (A) coming up for Villa!

                  1. Pep Roulette
                    • 2 Years

                    How about Leno & Stevens to Aurier & DDG for a hit?

                      1 month, 9 days ago

                      I'd be tempted to just do the one
                      Nyland might do ok at home to Wolves

                Ayew is good value. Goals in 3 of the 4 last matches and OK fixtures. All for the neat sum of 5.2

            Fernandes to Martial is a bit knee jerky isnt it? But maybe its so jerky its good

            Any suggestions for a 4.1 defender
            Please?

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

              Not sure there is one. Assuming Jack Robinson wont play when O'Connell is back

              1. sandman58
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 9 days ago

                So is O'Connell due back soon??....Lampty of Brighton was outstanding yesterday...but their fixtures stink....Tanganga is the other in my thinking....any word of him coming back?

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

                  I am sure I read somewhere that Wilder said he could be back for this weekend. No idea about Tangana sorry. Maybe best to go for a 3.9 and spend elsewhere

                  So I would guess Robinson has 1 GW at best in him left

            • 3 Years

            Is it worth Saiss to Aurier for a FT?

            Already have Doherty.

            0.3ITB so would need to switch tonight. Saiss if booked vs Villa will miss next two matches... do have Lacelles and Kiko on bench. Like Aurier potential for attacking returns too.

            Thoughts please. Cheerd
