Fernandes back with a bang as Rashford and Martial underwhelm at Brighton

Brighton 0-3 Man United

  • Goals: Mason Greenwood (£4.3m), Bruno Fernandes x2 (8.7m)
  • Assists: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m), Paul Pogba (£8.3m), Greenwood
  • Bonus Points: Greenwood x3, B Fernandes x2, Wan-Bissaka x1

Bruno Fernandes (£8.7m) came back from the Fantasy brink to show his true worth in Manchester United’s 3-0 win at Brighton.

The Portuguese international had been overshadowed by Paul Pogba‘s (£8.3m) return to the starting line-up in Gameweek 31+ before a poor 120 minutes against Norwich in the FA Cup over the weekend, leading to low expectations for Gameweek 32+.

But Fernandes blew those out of the water, coming away with two goals, a clean sheet and two bonus for a 15-point haul on Tuesday evening.

While Pogba’s presence did appear to harm Fernandes’ assist potential once again, having the Frenchman around unlocked something else for his midfield colleague: even greater goal threat.

Fernandes found himself offered up plenty of opportunities and, even though they were often from outside the penalty area, he still looked threatening all evening.

He came close to opening the scoring in the 12th minute when Pogba squared to him on the edge of the box. Fernandes’ sweeping finish curled back in on Mat Ryan‘s (£4.7m) goal, striking the base of the post.

Fernandes then put a direct free-kick over in the 20th minute, before finally netting the goal he attempted earlier when Pogba squared it to him again in the 31st minute, with a little help from an Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) deflection.

Fernandes’ finest effort came in the second half, as he finished off an exciting counter-attack move, reminiscent of the Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney glory days. Harry Maguire (£5.3m) headed clear, Nemanja Matić (£4.8m) hooked a through-ball out to Mason Greenwood (£4.3m), who crossed to Fernandes arriving at the back-post with pace, volleying beyond Ryan with aplomb.

“You know, good defending on the set play and you know we’ve got pace on the counter. We want to go forward quickly and a great pass by Nemanja, great cross by Mason (Greenwood) and fantastic finish from Bruno.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

With another haul in the bag, Fernandes owners will be in a good mood ahead of Gameweek 33+ which brings a hapless Bournemouth side to Old Trafford. Especially encouraging was that, with the game won, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was able to substitute the Portuguese midfielder just after the hour-mark – particularly important given his FA Cup exertions over the weekend.

“Great to get that 3-0 early so I could get Bruno and Luke off. They’ve had a hard weekend with 120 minutes in the cup. That worked out well.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

It was fitting that Greenwood’s cross for Fernandes’ second goal sailed over Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) and Anthony Martial (£8.2m) as both players blanked in Gameweek 32+ following decent scores in the previous outing.

While holding each of them for a home match against Bournemouth seems like the obvious decision, there were certainly elements of both players’ performances that were a bit discouraging.

The 20%-owned Rashford was heavily involved in approach play during the first half, as Solskjaer was keen for Manchester United to ask questions of Martín Montoya (£4.3m), but could not find his way into dangerous penalty area situations.

If anything, Rashford played much wider than his owners and backers for the captaincy would have liked, his only effort of the game coming from outside the box, as he cut inside onto his right-foot and blazed high and wide.

Meanwhile, in contrast to the explosive display against Sheffield United, Martial was forced to endure a workmanlike evening at Brighton. As Brighton tried to sit deep, often shifting their back-four into a back-five by tucking the advanced Tariq Lamptey (£4.0m) into full-back and left-back Dan Burn (£4.5m) into the centre-back trio, Manchester United’s centre-forward did not get much space. The role he performed for the team, pulling markers away from team-mates, played a big part in the success of the evening, but left him without a single shot at the Amex Stadium.

While holding Martial and Rashford ahead of Bournemouth is an obvious decision for Fantasy managers, the recent performances of Greenwood will be turning their eye.

He has now started each of the last two matches in a row and made a case for man of the match at Brighton.

The budget forward produced an excellent piece of skill and finished well for the opening goal and it was his pace on the counter that earned him an assist, and all three bonus for United’s third of the evening.

With Daniel James (£5.8m) the main competition for his place, it is hard to see Greenwood benched for the next match. Reliability of starts is not something that has applied to the forward in his time at Manchester United so far, so if he were to finally achieve it, with form and fixtures converging, Greenwood could provide exceptional value between now and the end of the season.

“(Greenwood) played fantastically. He’s a young kid and he’s a special kid. We know when he gets faced up and looking forward he’s dangerous but his hold-up play and link-up play today was great. He’s just as good with his left foot as he is with his right foot. He’s developing into a fine young player.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

As Fantasy managers chase other ways to invest in Manchester United assets, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) is becoming an increasingly viable option.

The right-back made plenty of forays down his side of the pitch against Brighton, providing yet another assist. That was his third since Gameweek 26, having produced just one in the first 25 matches of the campaign.

With Bournemouth (home), Aston Villa (away), Southampton (home), Crystal Palace (away) and West Ham (home) up next, Wan-Bissaka is sure to combine his newfound assist potential with clean sheets as well.

Manchester United have now recorded six shutouts in their last eight Premier League matches, Wan-Bissaka averaging 7.25 points per game in that time, more than any defensive colleague.

Finally, Brighton assets largely proved once again how difficult it is to invest in their services.

Faced with a tough test, Graham Potter shuffled his pack extensively, deploying a blend of 4-4-2 and 3-5-1-1 during the match.

Key goalscorer Neal Maupay (£5.7m) did not feature until the second half, coming at the interval with Leandro Trossard (£5.8m). Of the two, it was the latter who went closest to scoring, twice shaving the post with fierce shots across goal.

“Purely tactical (the team selection). Using Aaron Connolly’s pace. I think Neal (Maupay) can help us off the bench. It’s important to have players that can come on and finish the game. It’s a big squad. Everybody is ready to help. We’ll need that going forward.” – Graham Potter

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-5-1-1): Ryan; Montoya, Burn, Duffy, Dunk (Bernardo 81′), Lamptey (Trossard 46′); Bissouma, D Stephens, Pröpper (Maupay 46′); Mac Allister (Mooy 81′), Connolly (March 87′).

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw (Williams 64′), Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Matic, Pogba (McTominay 64′); Rashford (D James 78′), B Fernandes (A Pereira 64′), Greenwood; Martial (Ighalo 78′).

    Anyone else with Fernandes and Martial still concerned about Rashford? Got DDG blocking me from the triple attack

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Nah. 2 United attackers is fine.

    2. ryacoo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Rash will do alright but still a bit rusty and far from full fitness IMO so not in a huge rush to sell any of my 3 Utd to free up space for him right now

    3. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I don't think triple United attack is essential but I'm a bit worried about United defence as a AWB owner. We were very lucky not to concede in the 2nd half and majority of the team didn't seem to care at all about keeping a CS which has been an issue in comfortable wins since Ole took over.

      1. Goodbye Horses
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Worried, with those fixtures? They've kept six cleanies in the past eight.

        1. Klaren
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          If you watched the match yesterday, you should know why I'm worried with the 2nd half defensive performance. Yes fixtures are easy but Brighton's attacking stats isn't better than most teams we'll play either and we were lucky not to concede yesterday, gave away a lot of chances in the 2nd half.

    4. Mingo

      If it helps I have Fernandes and Rashford and I'm concerned about Martial! You can't cover them all, invariably there will be games where the other attackers haul and yours blanks.

    5. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I may 'downgrade' Rashy to Greenwood if he keeps starting. Great value if so.

    6. El Presidente
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Switching around atm seems wrong. If you have 2 stick with 2, you have 3 stick with 3

    2 FTs

    Foster (fodder)
    TAA. AWB. Doherty (Lascelles. Holgate)
    KDB. Fernandes. Son. Rich (Saka)
    Jiminez. DCL. Rash

    Worth doing Rich & Rash > Salah & Greenwood?

    1. Tempestic

      Yeh thats the exact transfer I noticed when just glancing at ur team. Difficult still coz its a very strong team as it is

    2. Mingo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Looks sensible to me.

  3. DAVESAVES

    DDG (3.9)
    TAA Aurier Saiss (Lascelles Robinson)
    Salah Bruno KDB Son (Hayden)
    Rashford Jimenez DCL

    2 free transfer

    A) Son > Mahrez and free up some funds
    B) DDG > Pope and Son > Martial
    C) Burn a FT

    1. Strchld
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I have similar team.

      If Son doesnt look good, then Im switching him to Mahrez or Foden. (Foden allows me to upgrade DCL to Jesus) and have triple City attack.

  4. teneighty

    Doubled up on Wolves D with Boly and Patricio on WC in GW31+ instead of going with Pope in goal. In two gameweeks Pope already outscored Patricio by 7 pts. If Burnley can continue shutting out opponents and scoring the odd goal, surely it is worth switching Patricio to Pope for a hit?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not for a hit it's not.

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Not for hit........

    3. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Wolves is likely to keep more CS than Burnley until the end of the season, so I definitely wouldn't do it for a hit.

    4. teneighty
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Cheers for the replies guys!

    5. Jafalad
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      No - you made the right move. BUR won't keep that many cs compared to WOL so keep the faith. You can't go on two games to make a judgement.

    6. El Presidente

      Burnley was very very lucky to keep those clean sheets and luck cannot run forever...

      After Everton play spurs I likely will
      He
      Origi
      Or greenwood depending on feel and rank at that time
      He always looks good I don’t buy into droughts as being the end of any asset

    1. POLSKA GOLA

      Decent stats, nailed, lack of other good forward options in that price range

    2. Reg83

      i am thinking of shipping him too.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He's done great for me since I bought him in GW 23.

    I genuinely am not sure if I need to WC at all for the rest of the season. Might save it for like GW37 or something.

    Pope Martin
    TAA Soyuncu Holgate Taylor Williams
    Salah Mane KdB Fernandes Dendoncker
    Rashford DCL Jimenez

    My defense looks weak at first glance but by rotating Soyuncu, Holgate and Taylor I can get two good defenders out every week until at least GW 35.

    how is this move for free? i reckon Greenwood is nailed now with ManU going all out for a CL spot

    Rashford & DCL to Greenwood & Jesus

    1. Christina.
      • 10 Years

      nope, keep DCL and spend money in midf

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Bold! Could massively backfire

      1. Reg83
        1 month, 4 days ago

        or just do a simple DCL to Girould? I have no other CHE cover

    3. Big Hands Barry

      Prefer the first couple tbh. More gametime and proven point scorers

    Good use of 2 FT's???
    Rashford to Nketiah
    Guendouzi to Martial

    Sets up this 3-5-2
    Patricio
    AWB-TAA-Saiss
    Martial-KDB-Alli-Salah(c)-Bruno
    DCL-Jimmy

    B-Nketiah-Lascelles-Holgate

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years

      I would say so. Taking of doing the same two transfers with my frees tbh.

  16. grennans2
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Greenwood or Nkietah the better option going forward?

    Have Bruno & Rashford so not sure if Greenwood is the best option for the 3rd MUN spot or better to go with AWB/DDG?

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Arsenal fixtures not great, I'd get Greenwood and possibly do swap to Nketiah for gw38.

    Been looking at all sorts of ways to get Mahrez, Martial, Son or Mane I’m but might just do this simple 2 ft, bench Richarlison this gw away to spurs and then use him on the easier fixtures

    DCL to Greenwood
    Guendozi to Foden these transfers also gives me 1.2milliom in bench and would make this team

    Patrício

    Taa Doherty Aurier

    Salah KDB Bruno Foden

    Rashford Greenwood Jimmy

    Button Richarlison Holgate Lascelles

    Look good or any other moves look better ?

    Got a couple of options I’d like some advice on

    Auba/Williams > Greenwood/Aurier

    Should I do this for free then Barnes > KDB with the 7m ITB next week after Barnes plays Palace at home (if I even play him) - trying to strengthen the bench ready for a bench boost. I could even do Hayden > Mahrez and Barnes > Richarlison or something? How does this look?

    Current team with 2 FT and £1.4m ITB

    Martinez
    TAA Saiss Alonso
    Salah Son Bruno Barnes
    Auba Ings Jimi

    Subs : Hayden Lascelles Williams

    Pope
    TAA AWB Doherty
    Martial Salah KDB Bruno
    Jimi Nketiah DCL

    Krul Cantwell Lascelles Johnson

    Hi all,

    What are your thoughts with my team?

    Pope Button
    TAA Doherty Lascelles Aurier Kiko
    Sarr KDB Mane Bruno Guendouzi
    Jimenez Rashford DCL

    2 FT, 0.4 itb, FH chip remaining

    Took a punt on 2 x Watford on my WC last week which hasn't paid off. Now looking to add more Chelsea and Man U to the team for the coming weeks.

    Should I:

    a) DCL & Sarr out - Greenwood & Pulisic/Willian in

    b) DCL & Kiko out - Greenwood & Alonso in

    c) DCL, Kiko & Aurier out - Nketiah, Alonso & AWB in (-4 hit)

    d) Use FH chip and stock up on Chelsea Man U & Liverpool

    Haven't got a strategy for FH but I feel I can put out a team next week to make me reluctant to use this.

    Thanks!

      Wrong time to lose DCL imo.

  24. Chrisscfc

    am I the only one keeping faith with Sarr? 3 GWks after this one look great

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      he looks good, Arsenal

      good 5th mid option though

      1. ALI_G
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Arsenal don't*

    2. Reg83
      1 month, 4 days ago

      i would ditch him. apart from his great performance vs LIV, he has done nothing. Mainly bcoz the team as a whole is poor

  25. FOO FIGHTER
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Thoughts here?

    Patricio
    TAA Doherty Alonso
    Salah Martial Mane Fernandes Pulisic
    DCL Jimenez

    Could also downgrade Pulisic and add Ings for a front 3.

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Looks great, although I'd want at least one City player for those fixtures.

      I'd downgrade Alonso to AWB or Maguire and get Mahrez for Pulisic.

  26. Shark Team

    De Gea/ AWB Maguire Koulibaly Shaw/ DaniloPereira Pogba Bruno/ Greenwood Rashford Martial can this team reach the level of Liverpool and City? I mean who needs Sancho?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Sign Duda from Norwich and you’re all set to win the PL.

    2. _sidney_will
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      3rd or 4th place (dependent on Chelsea), still a fair bit away from City and Liverpool but certainly going in the right direction.

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

      What I will say is, why do your fans moan about ownership non stop when this season you've spent 200m on players nearly this season alone? Man United's recruitment may be getting better now but before it was poor. Signing Lukaku more than Liverpool spent on Mane and Salah, etc.

    4. Reg83
      1 month, 4 days ago

      they will finish 3rd next year. need to avoid injuries though

  27. Jafalad
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Of course not. The problems are still endemic. Beating a bunch of nobodies doesn't change anything.

      @ Sharky.

  28. Athletic Nasherbo

    Aubameyang + Richarlison > Greenwood + Salah (C) -4?

    Gives me so much in the bank to upgrade both Grealish + Lundstram the following week...

    1. Reg83
      1 month, 4 days ago

      absolutely

  29. Reg83
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I am somehow tempted by doing Rashford to Greenwood & save almost 5m & upgrade elsewhere

    I wasnt impressed with Rashford positioning at all. too wide; similar to Sterling earlier in the season.

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I think many are considering the same provided Greenwood keeps starting.

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I'd have to agree - his touch was poor too. If Greenwood gets 2 games out of 3 then that would be good enough for me.

    3. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      He wasn't positioned wide against Shef Utd and had a lot of touches and chances in the box.
