Another start for Greenwood as unchanged United take on Villa in Gameweek 34+ finale

The final fixture of Gameweek 34+ sees Aston Villa take on Manchester United.

Kick-off at Villa Park is at 20:15 BST.

There is little in the way of seismic team news, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named an unchanged starting XI for the fourth league game in a row.

Mason Greenwood (£4.7m) gets another start down the right flank, then, with Bruno Fernandes (£8.9m), Paul Pogba (£8.3m), Marcus Rashford (£9.1m) and Anthony Martial (£8.3m) supporting the budget FPL forward in attack.

There is only one change for Aston Villa, meanwhile, as Mbwana Samatta (£5.3m) comes into Dean Smith’s line-up to replace Keinan Davis (£4.3m).

Rashford, Martial and Greenwood are all owned between 46% and 51% of the top 10k, with Fernandes sitting in more than nine in ten Fantasy squads among this elite bunch.

Just under 20% of the top 10,000 FPL managers have captained the Portuguese midfielder.

Fernandes has averaged 8.9 points per match since he joined the Red Devils in January.

Aston Villa XI: Reina, Konsa, Hause, Mings, Taylor, Grealish, Luiz, McGinn, El Ghazi, Trezeguet, Samatta.

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.

      Which player would be better to swap out for Vardy? I currently have Greenwood, Jimmy, and DCL. I’m either swapping Jimmy or DCL for Vardy. I’m planning to play a 3-5-2 next game week so one forward will not play

        Is Sterling overpriced at £11.7m

        Pope, Martin,
        TAA, Maguire, Doherty, Kiko, Robinson
        Mane, KDB, Martial, Bruno, Mahrez
        DCL, Jimenez, Nketiah

        2 FT, 0 ITB

        A) Maguire + Nketiah -> Justin (or max 5.0) + Greenwood
        B) Doherty + DCL + Jimenez -> max 5.1 + Vardy + Welbeck -4
        C) Martial + DCL + Jimenez -> max 8.1 + Vardy+ Greenwood -4
        D) Other combination of above?

        Sick of the sight of DCL and Jimenez
