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.

      Even James will score before Trashford

    5. MiLK2018

      Is there any likelihood of Vardy suspension, because of his foul on Mustafi? Plan to do Jimenez -> Vardy.

    6. Hryszko

      Rashford > Greenwood for a -4?

      1. Zen_Master
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        If you desperately need the funds elsewhere then yes.

      Tough week, wasn't planning to bring in Ings until GW 36 but have exact funds to do Rash, Jimi and Guendouzi > Vardy, Pulisic & Ings for -4 before rises tonight. Sound decent?

      Streetwise James forgetting that they arent protecting a 1 goal lead like hes used to

    9. Bobby Digital

      Rashford fk

      Good to see Martial is hungry for goals. Should get space against the Saints.

    11. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Surely, SURELY Rashford can actually get some points now every other owned player is off the field

      1. _Ninja_

        He's become the weak link in the Man Utd attack. Pushed out to the left, just like Rooney was when Tevez and Ronaldo were on fire.
