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.

    2. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years

      Think I'm doing exact same move. Makes sense.

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        half the planet is doing that move tonight

        including me

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

    3. Big Ronnie
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Without a doubt

  3. Lindelol
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Jimenez out for Vardy
    Or
    Salah out for Sterling

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      A

      why would you remove Salah

      1. Costa Nostra
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Hates owning top scorer in fpl??

    2. Rashers
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Jiminez out

      Though I am looking forward to owning Sterling this week

  4. Lucas8406
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Get Dendoncker for bench fodder or Foden to rotate with Greenwood

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

        Why??

    • Fernandito
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Patricio
      Doherty TAA AWB (Taylor Simpson)
      KDB Salah Bruno Foden Pulisic
      Jimenez Rashford (Nketiah)

      Rashford & Jimenez for Greenwood & Vardy worth a -4?

    • COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Captain Mane, Vardy, or Bruno?

      1. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Mane

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

        No Bruner

      3. The Mighty Hippo

      Captain mane over fernandes?

      1. Duke Silver ☑
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        What makes you think that he won't be on pens?

      2. Super Saints
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Good god no

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

        Penalty situation isn't necessarily one go each but Liverpool at home and Mane almost certain to start

    • Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Would you quit FPL if you had son and Mane!?

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

        Hahahahahahaha, you're taking this game way to seriously.

      2. A Dog Has Its Day
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        No I would jump in the bath with a toaster

      3. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        I have them and Rashford too. Getting son and rash out. Keeping Mane for one more week.

      4. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        no, go crazy and Mane (C)

    • DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      I can't have Rashford in my team one more minute.

      1. Rashers
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        He's been poor recently. Was United's best player before his injury

    • dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Is the Maguire to Greenwood switch worth a -4 hit?

      Maguire to Digne and Nketiah to Greenwood

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Yes

    • Utopsis
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        100pts this GW if Bruno and Ings retain 3bps. Gotta be pleased with that!

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

          Wow, congrats!

          1. Utopsis
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              Cheers mate. Given how cyclical FPL is I'm probably due about 30pts total next GW

          2. Super Saints
            • 3 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            I was on 19 earlier with Doherty TAA KDB mane Son Foden

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

            since the Everton game finished about 2 hours ago I think you're safe on Ings...

            1. Utopsis
                25 days, 20 hours ago

                V true!

          4. fplking14
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            Pulisic or Willian?

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

            Here is one tough captain choice, who would you cap out of those?

            A) Fernandes (sou)
            B) Vardy (bou)
            C) Sterling (bha)

            Im chasing about 15pts, rival doesnt have Sterling nor vardy

            1. mynameisq
              • 6 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              15 points is nothing stick with bruno as he will and sterling and vardy will help you overtake

            2. Noah’s Ark
              • 7 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              Captain Fernandes then and hope your differentials will be enough.

            3. Bartowski
              • 9 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              Its between Vardy and Fernandes for me as well. Southampton have looked very good recently, Bournemouth have not.

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

            Bruno’s xG & xA will be dragged out again 😆

          7. Noah’s Ark
            • 7 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            I’d have cleared 100 points easily if I swapped my cv and c or wolves kept a CS...

            Rashford not confident not shooting?

            1. diesel001
              • 3 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              Rashford has become the Rooney of this team Rooney pushed out of position to the left wing because he was the weakest out of Rooney, Tevez and Ronaldo. Rashford is the same with Martial and Greenwood

                • 1 Year

            Not sure what to do here. Would like a Chelsea mid and Vardy but not sure i'd drop any of my current mids. Jimenez is the one who probably needs to go. 1FT and £0.9m ITB. Save or get vardy for a hit? Would you drop any of the mids for a chelsea mid?

            Pope, Martin
            TAA, Doherty, Saiss, Femenia, Lascelles
            Mane, KDB, Mahrez, Bruno, Martial
            Jimenez, Ings, Greenwood

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              Martial & Jiminez to Vardy & Pulisic or Willian if the budget allows
              Next problem would be who to bench !

          10. T.Henry14

            Captain headache next gweek

            A) Mane (BUR)
            B) Bruno (SOU)
            C) Martial (SOU)
            D) KDB (bha)
            E) Vardy (bou)
            F) Greenwood (SOU)

            I'm on Vardy, just a feeling

            1. Danstoke82
              • 5 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              • 6 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

                Not seen him convert a single pass

                  • 6 Years
                  25 days, 20 hours ago

                  You've not seen him play a single pass successfully?

              • 2 Years

              Kane to a traffic cone would be an improvement...

            • 7 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            If I have no ambition for OR and competing only with rival and need to be agressive, that's good moves?

            Rashford, AWB, Foden, Son to ----> Greenwood, Taylor, Martial, Sterling (-12)

          15. Hybrid.power
            • 10 Years

            Rash+Neves to Vardy+Antonio (-4)?
            Thinking to cap Vardy also.

            Greenwood MOT

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

              Pogba IMO

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

            Rashford > Greenwood yay or nay?

            Already own Bruno & DDG.

            Would be a -4 to go alongside Ings & Vardy.

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

              Nope

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

            Connolly and AWB -> Greenwood and Aurier (free). Good call? Have my BB.

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

          22. Danstoke82
            • 5 Years
            25 days, 20 hours ago

            Evening
            Jimenez > Ings -4 before he rises tonight?

            Would allow me to do Son > Sterling next week.

            Or should I wait and do Son > Willian/Pulisic?

            1. ALI_G
              • 2 Years
              25 days, 20 hours ago

              why do you want Ings for Man U?

              1. Danstoke82
                • 5 Years
                25 days, 20 hours ago

                As then it will allow me to do Son > Sterling next GW
