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.

        • 5 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        Tempted by Vardy but Bruno is just so consistent right now.

    2. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Seems like a no brainer but Southampton good away from home. Or Salah against Burnley?

    5. Sun Jihai

      1. Danstoke82
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        Vardy v Bournemouth not under consideration?

    Who to drop for Vardy? 🙂

    1) Kane
    2) Rashford

    1. Nomar
      • 10 Years

      Ksne

    2. yer old da
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Kane without a shadow - at least there’s goals galore in the Man U team

    3. Hawk Eye
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Rash

    4. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      I’m dropping Marcus and Jimi for Mason and Jamie.

    5. TakingTheMkhi
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      I was gonna do Rash to Vardy, but may have to swap for Greenwood now to cover rival.

    Commentator: Bruno hasn't had his best game, not his usual self.

    ... 1 Goal, 1 Assist 😆

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

    We have a gift in OGS as FPL managers. He darent rotate in case the wheels fall off.

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      If it ain't broke for the love of God don't f*** with it

  7. Niho992

    World class diver rested for cheat haul vs Soton...

    1. GloryManUnited

      Hahahahaha love your tears

  8. Brosstan

    Time for Pogdab to show he is still the big playa

  9. potatoace
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Rashford is so wide hes literally just a decoy.

    1. denial
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      I'm swapping for greenwood. Frees cash up for vardy

    2. Utopsis
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      For whatever reason it appears he's been instructed to hold wide and come inside much less than Greenwood - don't like it

  10. denial
    • 11 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Bit depressing to own 3 Utd and watch rank drop by 1k

  11. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Could do with a Rashford goal..

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Yeah, before I punt him.

  12. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • 5 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Bruno subbed

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Back on?

      1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        Sorry I’m behind 🙂

  13. Rainer
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    15,15,14*

    Can he keep it up?

    Will he take the pen vs Southampton?

    1. Differentiator
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Its Penchester United. He'll stub his toe against the goalpost and be awarded a Pen

  14. JONALDINHO
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Son and Trent to Sterling and Taylor(-4)? Trent most likely rotated at the weekend and last 3 are tough. Leaves money for Guendouzi to Foden the following gameweek

  15. AnAngryBiscuit
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Rashford, any chance? Or are waiting for me to remove so that you can haul?

    1. denial
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Quite possibly waiting

  16. FOO FIGHTER
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Rashford, do something!

  17. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Leicester vs Utd on the last day looking rather tasty

    1. Gomolon
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      can't wait! especially if top 4/5 rests on it

  18. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Remember after the Sheff United game when people were considering selling Bruno. Now he's perma-captain. Things change quickly in FPL.

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      No one actually sold, surely.

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        The FFS article about Pogba's impact on Bruno combined with Martial's hattrick surely tempted a few early movers

  19. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Hey fam! Save FT & GTG? 1.0 ITB

    DDG
    TAA Saiss Egan
    Salah Sterling(C) KDB Bruno Foden
    Jimenez Greenwood

    Nyland Stevens Lascelles Nketiah

    Jimenez to Ings next week!

    1. denial
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Of course save. Nice team

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        Cheers mate!

    2. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      GTG my friend

      Doing the same move!

      Also.. should I play Foden or Jimi?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        Cheers mate! Jimenez will start but Foden will come off the bench. But Foden can easily outscore Jimenez. Tough call! I'd go Jimenez only because he'll surely start!

  20. yer old da
    • 10 Years

    Kane > Vardy is possibly my easiest transfer of the season.

  21. konrad.sygula95
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Hi guys, what would you do with this squad ?
    How would you drop? Son? Jimenez?

    Foster/Button
    VVD/Lascelles/Aurier/Saiss/Simpson
    Salah(c) /Kdb/Fernandes/Guendouzi/Son
    Greenwood /Rashford/Jimenez

    1ft 0.5itb

  22. Shankly611
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 19 hours ago

    Would you swap Nketiah for Greenwood for a -4?

    Worried about KDB being on the bench next GW so I might start Greenwood ahead of him.

    1. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Yes. Greenwood is nailed on

  23. It’s gonna Ben Mee

    1. Gomolon
      • 5 Years

  29. La Roja

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago

      Time to switch off in that case.

    2. Gomolon
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 19 hours ago
