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.

    Martinez
    TAA • Doherty • Kiko

      Definitely

    2. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        half the planet is doing that move tonight

        including me

        1. BeaversWithAttitude
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Except for the smart ones who did it last week, lol.

    3. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Without a doubt

  3. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Jimenez out for Vardy
    Or
    Salah out for Sterling

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      A

      why would you remove Salah

      1. Costa Nostra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Hates owning top scorer in fpl??

    2. Rashers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Jiminez out

      Though I am looking forward to owning Sterling this week

  4. Lucas8406
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Get Dendoncker for bench fodder or Foden to rotate with Greenwood

    1. Gomolon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Why??

  5. Fernandito
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

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

  6. COK3Y5MURF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Captain Mane, Vardy, or Bruno?

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Mane

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      No Bruner

    3. The Mighty Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Vardy

  7. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Captain mane over fernandes?

    Bruno wont be on penos next game and soton in good form

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Good god no

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

  8. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

    2. A Dog Has Its Day
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      No I would jump in the bath with a toaster

    3. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

    4. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      no, go crazy and Mane (C)

  9. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

    1. Rashers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

  10. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

    Maguire to Digne and Nketiah to Greenwood

    1. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

  11. Utopsis
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

    1. Lukakuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Wow, congrats!

      1. Utopsis
        2 months, 10 days ago

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

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

    3. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

      1. Utopsis
        2 months, 10 days ago

        V true!

  12. fplking14
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Pulisic or Willian?

  13. Silecro
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days 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
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days 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
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Captain Fernandes then and hope your differentials will be enough.

    3. Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

  14. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

  15. Noah’s Ark
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

  16. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Rashford not confident not shooting?

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days 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. GloryManUnited
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  17. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    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

    1. keefyefc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

  18. T.Henry14
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    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
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Vardy here as well at the moment

  19. Atletico Junior

    Can someone please explain if "Scoring the goal that wins a match" Baps apply to bruno this match?

    1. thegame983
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Yes

    2. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Yep

    3. Gomolon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      you can check the BAPS on fpl website under "Fixtures" tab

  20. Royal5
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Shaw has been very poor

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Final ball has, other than that he's been great

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Not seen him convert a single pass

        1. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

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

    2. GloryManUnited
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      What? Lol

  21. Boom Boom's Loveshack
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Kane to Jesus a no brainer?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Its not, do you have Greenwood already?

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      kane to vardy

    3. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

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

  22. Winter_is_coming
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 10 days 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)

  23. Hybrid.power
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    I can't stand when a corner can't even beat the first man

    1. Noah’s Ark
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Highly frustrating

    2. Zilla
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Or short corner wasted

    3. Gomolon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      such an anticlimax

  24. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Foden, Kane to Sterling, Origi for -4?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Origi??

  25. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Best defender for 7.0m?

  26. AzzaroMax99
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

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

  27. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Greenwood MOT

    1. GloryManUnited
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Pogba IMO

  28. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Rashford > Greenwood yay or nay?

    Already own Bruno & DDG.

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

    1. Mind över Mata
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Nope

  29. Mind över Mata
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 10 days 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

  30. Danstoke82
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 10 days 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
      2 months, 10 days ago

      why do you want Ings for Man U?

      1. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

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