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.

    Best defender up to 5.6?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Bertrand after next GW

  3. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 10 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Think I’ll do rashford & Taa > Vardy & VVD. For a 4 point hit. Mad?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Good moves

      1. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Anyone instead of vvd?

      25 days, 19 hours ago

      I know Spurs are awful at the moment but does Auiruer fit the budget ?

  4. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Can you no longer see when other teams have made a transfer during the current gameweek for next?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Nopes

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Correct

    3. Sun Jihai
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Been case all season

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 19 hours ago

        Only just went to nosey, remembered using it last season to predict moves

  5. Mind över Mata
    • 8 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Connolly and AWB -> Greenwood and Aurier

    Good call or is there a better defender for up to 5.1 - have my BB?

    Defence is:

    Pope / Martinez
    TAA / Walker / AWB / Saiss / Holgate

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Maybe get Walker Peters or Stephens for last couple and upgrade elsewhere?

      1. Mind över Mata
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Thanks, pretty happy with the rest of the team

        Pope / Martinez
        TAA / Walker / AWB / Saiss / Holgate
        Salah / Fernandes / Pulisic / Mahrez / KDB
        Rashford / Jiminez / Connolly

        Aurier the right call?

  6. Rainer
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Grealish finding his level lately.

  7. Gomolon
    • 5 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Do we reckon that Reina gets benched next game?

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Why?

    2. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Goals not his fault.

  8. Wild Rover
    • 9 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Terry must be spewing at Lampard success

    1. Forza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Lampard was learning Latin while JT was having banter with the lads

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Not comparable

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Surely, he seems a very petty character

  9. T.Henry14
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    1) Save transfer
    2) Guendouzi ----> Foden

    * FH GW36+

    Patricio
    TAA, Aurier, Doherty (Soyuncu, Lascelles)
    Mane, KDB, Bruno, Martial (Guendouzi)
    Vardy, Ings, Greenwood

    I thinking about saving transfer, use FH for 36 (3xCHE, 3xCITY, Richarlison, Digne...) and then with 2FT making space for GW37&38?

    1. BIELSA
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      If foden is going to be on your bench this week you may aswell save

  10. Big Hands Barry
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Rashford to Nketiah. Doing it tonight

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Doit

    2. Gomolon
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Nketiah out till 37+

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        I know

  11. BIELSA
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Jimenez out for Vardy
    Or
    Son out for Pulisic/Willian

    Wish i could do both but only have 1ft

    1. Hits from the Bong
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Take a hit

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • 11 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Take a -4. Live a little.

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Hit?

    4. AnAngryBiscuit
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Wish? You can.

      • BIELSA
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        It isnt worth a hit, i just took a hit this week also

    5. FOO FIGHTER
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Martial > Mahrez
        Rashford > Greenwood
        Nketiah > Ings

        All for -8

        Yes or No

        Have Fernandes

        1. _Ninja_
          • 9 Years
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Just the last 2 keep tony

        2. Hits from the Bong
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Keep Martial

        3. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Why lose Martial?

        4. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Just the latter 2 for -4

      • Bicks
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Pope
          Saiss Aurier Soyunco
          Martial Salah KDB Fernandes
          Rashford Ings Jesus

          Martin, Kiko, Davis, Holgate.

          2 free transfers. I'm 0.2 away from being able to do Rashford > Vardy

          Rashford to Vardy is what I want to do.

          I could do Rashford and Jesus to Vardy and Greenwood but I think Jesus will haul in one of the late season fixtures like Norwich at home.

          Any other ideas?

          1. Bam Bam Bigelow
            • 4 Years
            25 days, 19 hours ago

            Rashford, Jesus, Davis > Greenwood, Vardy, Mahrez/ Willian/ Pulisic?

        • Prison Mike
          • 4 Years
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Worth a hit?

          Jimenez, DCL, AWB -> Vardy, Greenwood, Digne (-4)

          1. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            Just do front line?

            1. Prison Mike
              • 4 Years
              25 days, 19 hours ago

              3 united already

            Yup

        • Duke Silver ☑
          • 5 Years

          Sky are really pushing the Grealish to United thing. Don't see why United would go anywhere near him.

          1. GloryManUnited
            • 1 Year
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            All he’ll do it slow the attack down. He’s more fit for wolves in front of Neves

          2. Royal5
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            Agreed.

            Bit of a masterclass from him.

            1. GloryManUnited
              • 1 Year
              25 days, 19 hours ago

              The impact he’s had in more of a holding role really does show his class.

        • DandyDon

          Need to hold this CS. On 78 points and still on a red arrow looks like even if they hold. Don’t know why I bother!

            Not so sure you want Mahrez out.. Unless you know he will be benched.

          4. Royal5
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            Probably not

            1. Royal5
              • 8 Years
              25 days, 19 hours ago

              Have a look at citys fixtures. Whenever Mahrez plays he always seems to be involved in points.

          5. Rashers
            • 6 Years

            Yes

          Son, Rashy, Jimenez --> Greenwood, Mane, Vardy

          Don't have any pool cover at moment in attack

            Greenwood or Vardy more essential next week?

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

              Both - but I'd say Greenwood, better long term prospect whereas most people only getting Vardy in for a week or two
