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.

    And down the rank we go...
    At least Rashford is on the next one.

    Appalling penalty award. Could argue it’s a Stamp from Fernandes

    Said it before and I’ll say it again. Bruno is the new Hazard. An fpl dream

    1. Zim0

      Hazard was never this consistent

    Feel sorry for Villa to have that disgraceful decision given against them

  5. I love Spurs

    Mcginn’s thighs are as big as Grealish’s calves

      Cheap

      If united are in this sort of form I’ll pay it.

        May as well. No premium strikers worth spending money on.

      You are too late (see top of last page) 😉

    Bruno cappers should be on 0 now
    Instead they are on 18
    Worst FPL gameweek ever?

    LiVARpool had a lot of help to win the title but theres no denying VARchester United have paid some pounds as well to guarantee 4th

      You just passed Bemba Da on my top annoying people on FFS list...

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

        Is Bemba that annoying?

        1. The Train Driver
          • 5 Years
          25 days, 20 hours ago

          Very... 😀

      2. Lucy2019
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        Come on. No one can possibly be that annoying.

        Haha agreed. Do people really think VAR was the only reason Liverpool won the league....come on lol give your head a shake

    2. Rainer

      United bought VAR 2.0, Liverpool will struggle next season.

  9. Qaiss

    I own him but Bruno is a dirty little cheat. Perfect for United. VAR and English referees corrupt as ever.

      Take your glasses of and take a good hard look at that face

  10. Rainer

    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Are people actually questioning or surprised that United got that decision in their favour? 😆

    1. Keep Calm and Play On
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      I think everyone is just surprised how inconsistent VAR is...which we shouldn’t be anymore

    2. Cilly Bonnolly
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      How many penalties have United been awarded that they shouldn’t have been awarded?

  11. I love Spurs
    • 8 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Could Bruno get cited for that stamp and miss the next game?

    1. Keep Calm and Play On
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      Please...it was an attempt to turn not a stamp, he had his back to the player FFS

  12. Tony Martial

    Tony come onnnn

  13. ajay_kl +42

    So playing the fixtures and going with KDB(C) does not pay off. Salah and Bruno owner here plummeting down the ranks

  14. COK3Y5MURF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Absolutely disgusted with those undeserved Bruno points. Gonna take a -4 just to nullify it

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

    Genuine set and forget material now. Can’t stop.

  16. Says
    • 9 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    lol no one thinks that was a peno, even Neville on the broadcast. I have Bruno but that's ridiculous.

  17. Coys96

    VARchester United

    Diving, stamping, offsides. Every decision goes their way

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      And they re still fifth

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

      Your just bitter that united were able to get into their opponents box in order to have a chance of earning a penalty

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 20 hours ago

        You're*

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

    2. Collie01
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 20 hours ago

      I'm a non-owner. Disaster!

  21. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • 10 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Honestly didn’t think that was going to be given - Bruno just stamped on him

    Not complaining like, but that was mad from the VAR lads again

  22. Noah’s Ark

    25 days, 20 hours ago

    If that is a penalty then I am Paul Scholes!!! What the..? Blind referees? Clear card for Bruno, potential red too, got a penalty !!! Outrageous !why VAR exists?

    Twitter feed went mad.

  29. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years
    25 days, 20 hours ago

    Bruno should have been booked earlier for the tactical foul too
