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.

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

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

        5. DycheDycheBaby
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days 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.

        Rashford is so wide hes literally just a decoy.

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

        2. Utopsis
            2 months, 11 days ago

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

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

        4. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Could do with a Rashford goal..

          15,15,14*

          Can he keep it up?

          Will he take the pen vs Southampton?

          1. Differentiator
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

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

        7. JONALDINHO
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days 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

        8. JustSomeGuy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 11 days ago

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

          1. denial
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Quite possibly waiting

        9. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year

          Rashford, do something!

          Leicester vs Utd on the last day looking rather tasty

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 11 days 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
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            No one actually sold, surely.

            1. Hulk Smash
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

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

          Hey fam! Save FT & GTG? 1.0 ITB

            GTG my friend

            Doing the same move!

            Also.. should I play Foden or Jimi?

            1. Pep Roulette
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 11 days 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!

        13. yer old da
          • 10 Years

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

          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days 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
