FPL lessons learned as Martial and Rashford outscore Fernandes

Man United 2-2 Southampton

  • Goals: Marcus Rashford (£9.0m), Anthony Martial (£8.3m) | Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m), Michael Obafemi (£4.9m)
  • Assists: Martial, Bruno Fernandes (£9.0m) | Nathan Redmond (£6.2m), Jan Bednarek (£4.4m)
  • Bonus Points: Martial x3, Bednarek x2, Rashford x1

Bruno Fernandes (£9.0m) left his horde of Gameweek 35+ supporters wanting more as Manchester United drew 2-2 with Southampton on Monday night.

Crucially, he was outscored by both Anthony Martial (£8.3m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.0m) on a rare off-night for the Portuguese international.

Grabbing an assist for United’s second goal of the evening, Fernandes did manage to ensure his run of games without a blank extended to four but there was much less to admire as usual.

Since arriving in the Premier League, Manchester United’s number 18 has been a shot machine, registering 16 efforts on goal between Gameweeks 30+ and 34+, the joint-third best of any midfielder.

However, across his 83-minute outing against Southampton, Fernandes was unable to shoot even once, while no penalties for his team left the man shorter of points-scoring avenues than usual.

With attention turning to Manchester City and Chelsea midfielders in Gameweek 36+, some even considering the Free Hit chip, Fantasy managers will want to know whether or not they need to keep a slot for Fernandes, who faces an admittedly porous Crystal Palace defence on Thursday.

It must be said that the Portuguese international did look both fatigued and laboured against Southampton, giving away possession in key moments and failing to find his usual insightful delivery.

It probably did not help matters than Paul Pogba (£8.3m) had an even worse outing, at fault for Southampton’s first goal and largely responsible for robbing Manchester United of any consistent rhythm in the 62 minutes he was on the pitch.

“We created some chances, some fantastic football sometimes, Anthony made some good chances for himself. But we never got the rhythm in the passing today.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United have been blessed with a kind fixture schedule in terms of turnaround thus far in Project Restart, although it does appear that the compressed nature of the Premier League’s return is starting to take some sort of toll on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men if this most recent performance is anything to go by.

The fact that the trip to Selhurst Park awaits them on Thursday certainly increases the pressure on their fitness. 

But Fernandes owners have to remember that, since Gameweek 30+, only Norwich (15) have conceded more goals than Crystal Palace (13).

And while Fernandes was outscored by Martial and Rashford on Monday night, he has been a more reliable source of points on the road recently.

United’s French centre-forward certainly looked the part once more against Southampton, coming away with a goal and assist, maximum bonus and unlucky not to get more than that.

In the ninth minute, he pickpocketed James Ward-Prowse (£5.7m) in a dangerous area and was denied in a one-on-one with Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) by a strong left-hand by the Saints’ goalkeeper.

In the second half, Martial might have had another assist and goal too. Rashford’s piece of 67th-minute skill on the left-hand side left Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.4m) behind enabling the forward to slide Martial into the dead-ball line. He cut it back to Rashford, only to see Ryan Bertrand (£4.8m) slide in with a brilliant block to deny a certain goal.

Then, in the 80th minute, Martial went on an incredible run down the left, through the middle and past a crowd of Southampton defenders to get through on goal, only to spurn the finish, one he usually would have buried.

Rashford also could have had more than his goal and seven-point return.

Luke Shaw (£5.4m) picked out his pacey run through the middle in the 15th minute, his netted effort ruled out for offside.

Rashford then got through in the 52nd minute after Fernandes’ threaded ball only to see Jan Bednarek (£4.4m) block his goal-bound effort. 

Three minutes later, Fernandes’ chipped pass reached Rashford despite a Walker-Peters handball, who tried a powerful knuckle-ball effort from distance, rippling the side-netting in what would have been a wonderful goal.

However, while Martial and Rashford looked more explosive than Fernandes on Monday night, the disadvantage both of them have against the Portuguese international is their away form.

Since the Premier League came back, Martial has double-figure hauls in every home match, recording 16 points per game at Old Trafford. But across his three on the road, his average stands at 3.7 points per game.

Rashford has also returned in every Project Restart home match so far (7.3 points per game) but is yet to do anything but blank on the road since Gameweek 30+.

By comparison, Fernandes has scored in every road trip in that time, averaging 12.7 points per game in such fixtures. 

Fantasy managers may also be tempted to look at the Manchester United defence for Gameweek 36+. While Crystal Palace’s poor goal-scoring fortunes at home are well-documented this season, the Red Devils backline did suffer some problems against Southampton.

Not only were some of their weaknesses exposed, Solskjaer potentially has a staffing problem at left-back for the trip to Selhurst Park.

Shaw rolled his ankle in the second half, replaced in the 74th minute by Brandon Williams (£3.9m), but the youngster ended up walking off with a nasty gash to the head in stoppage time. Nemanja Matić (£4.8m) was forced to deputise in the left-back position for the closing stages, so it will be interesting to see who claims the spot at Selhurst Park and whether or not that affects Manchester United’s defensive credentials.

For the final moments of the game, in which Michael Obafemi (£4.9m) struck the dramatic equaliser, the Red Devils were reduced to 10 men, because Williams left the field after the three allocated substitute windows had been used.

“He got a cut above his eye. We’ll have to [wait and see]. I’ve not been to see him yet. He’s with the medical staff. Yeah (it was bad luck to lose him) but that’s how it is. We defended well until that corner. Always disappointing to get that in the 96th minute but that’s football. I know the feeling the other way around.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

However, Southampton still caused them plenty of problems all evening.

Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) threatened in the early stages, breaking away from Pogba in the 10th minute and forcing a sprawling save out of David de Gea (£5.3m) before scoring a minute later.

It was Pogba who lost possession in the defensive third under pressure from Danny Ings (£7.4m), allowing Nathan Redmond (£6.2m) to get in behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) and feed an unmarked Armstrong at the back post. While he was not the only one at fault for this goal, it was interesting to see the Manchester Evening News claim the Gameweek 36+ trip to Crystal Palace could be an ideal time to rest Wan-Bissaka, who was below par on Monday night, picking up a yellow card in the process.

The Southampton wingers combined again in the 48th minute when Armstrong scythed through the middle and laid off to Redmond who drove wide of the left-hand post.

The former Norwich man then went close in the 85th minute, cutting inside from the flanks past Matić, curling an effort at de Gea, who tipped over flamboyantly.

Interestingly, Ings played a rather peripheral role in this Southampton display, especially compared to those stationed in the wide-midfield roles. Since the restart, he has been less effective against the bigger clubs, blanking against Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal but scoring in meetings with Norwich, Watford and Everton. Ings faces Brighton, Bournemouth and Sheffield United between now and the end of the season.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Shaw (B Williams 75′), Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Matić, Pogba (Fred 63′); Rashford, B Fernandes (McTominay 84′), Greenwood (D James 84′); Martial.

Southampton XI: McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Walker-Peters; Redmond, Romeu (Obafemi 87′), Ward-Prowse, Armstrong (Smallbone 70′); Ings, Adams (S Long 64′).

    Best move here?

    Pope Hendo
    TAA Doherty AWB Gomez Taylor
    Salah Raz Bruno Mahrez Foden
    Jimenez DCL Greenwood

    1 FT 0.1 itb.
    Chasing 45 in ML so making risky moves

    A. Jimenez + AWB > Rashford + Pieters (-4) (Burnley def triple up)
    B. Mahrez > Willian / D. Silva. Might captain whoever I bring in.
    C. Jimi + Mahrez > Ings + Antonio (-4)

    Rival does not have any of the players I'm considering to get.

  6. eamonhegg
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Yes or No

    Mane + TAA + Hayden > Stirling + Willian + Azpil

  7. Chelsea91

    2 months, 12 days ago

    Captain Options
    1) Willian
    2) Bruno
    3) Mane
    4) Antonio
    5) Kdb
    6) Ings

    Currently on Willian , any suggestion on this?

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      That’s bold. I will probably go with Bruno or Kdb.

      1. Chelsea91
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        i want to go for Bruno but think chelsea will destroy Norwich.

    Can 30 points off top 10K be made up in the remaining three GWs? Gonna need a couple of differential captains to come off right?

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Can easily be done

    2. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Yes differential captain is the only key

    3. Patron
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 12 days ago

      possible Id say and yeah, couple of differential captain picks. Nothing too maverick just get off Bruno dullard (c).

    4. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      oh yes, I need 20

    5. TFP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Very, very easily. I'm currently one of over 300 teams on 2169 points, tied for places 9938-10273.

      With lots of FH chips to play and probably the usual GW38 shitshow I'm highly dubious about my ability to cling onto a top 10k place.

  10. The Red Devil

    Sterling mane Martial kdb Fernandes
    Sell any of them for Pulisic/willian/dilva/foden?

    With 3 gameweeks to go, what do people think is a feasible target to chase down in a mini-league? I’m about 20 behind, he has FH, I have BB.

    I think that’s comfortably catchable to be honest. I reckon anything up to about 45 points could be feasibly done (15 a gameweek), but just wondered what other gaps people are looking to chase down/maintain?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      That is easily catchable. I am trying to make up 30 points on top 10k but at the same time defend a mini league rival 30 points behind with TC and BB still to play. Tricky decisions

      1. CC22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah, that is going to be tricky! Presume the mini-league’s got a financial incentive to it? I’ve always previously prioritised ML and generally if I win them I tend to get a decent enough rank.

    2. eamonhegg
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      15 points. Both top 4k OR +.

      He has BB i have FH and TC

      1. CC22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        You leading or chasing? I think the two chips you have are definitely “worth more” in theory, but obviously down to how they’re used and a hint of luck!

    3. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      There are so many excellent attacking options and thus captaincy options that I think some huge leads could and will be caught up in mini leagues.

      For example last week bringing in and captaining Antonio would have gained you 50 points on a rival

      I think 30+ point lead is very strong but certainly not safe of the chaser knows how to take calculated risks

      1. Patron
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Antonio literally just ended my season.

      2. CC22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 12 days ago

        Very true, Sterling similarly. I’m not sure we’ll see another four goal haul though, although could see a hattrick/two goals and an assist from someone low owned.

        It becomes trickier though, and a little more reliant on luck the later into the season because if chasing it likely will require a few hits/risky captaincy shouts.

    4. Winter_is_coming
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I have 38 points lead after yesterday, but rival have FH and would play it in last Gameweek. My aim is to calculate his potential high-rewarding moves (this week it's Pulisic) and block them. I'm very scared about FH for last Gameweek and games like City - Norwich, so would take all needed hits (even -12 or -16) to control players like Sterling, ofc if I would still have the lead like 34-50 points.

  16. Lignja
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    A. Mahrez to Silva
    B. Mahrez to Pulisic
    C. Vardy to Ings
    D. Any combo of Abc -4
    E. Mahrez, Connolly to Foden, Ings (bench Greenwood)-4

    Pope
    Taa, Dohert, Holgate
    Salah, Mahrez, Kdb, Bruno, Martial
    Greenwood, Vardy

    Martin, Saiss, Lascales, Connoly

    On E. atm but still woried about no Chelsea, so far rly hard decisions this week even if i would fh i feal i would remove lots of points from team...rly need help here guys, thanks

  17. Stoichkov#8

    2 months, 12 days ago

    Pick one:

    a) Greenwood
    b) Giroud -4 (if we get leaked lineups)
    c) Ings -4 (I think its a high chance for rest)

        That would be good enough for me...

      30 or 60 (its 50/50)
      60-80

        Hmmm...good enough for Foden, Jesus....Sterling would be a worry since I would want to captain him.

    Scenes when Pep trolls everyone with Sterling Jesus bench instead of KDB and Mahrez 😀

    1. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Mahrez would be surprising, I think KDB starts...

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I really see that happening 🙂

    3. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Wouldn't be surprising, no logic behind his rotations sometimes

    4. SH@KTIMAAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      Trolling would be Jesus Foden dilva benched with sterling top

      thats why I dont wanna take hits for taking out/in City players this week.. or ever 😀

  20. Greenbob

    Mahrez to DSilva or Sterling?

    If DSilva it would allow Vardy to Auba next week if Sterling then probably Vardy to Ings week. Have Foden and De Bruyne already.

  21. Rinseboy

    Would.you replace any of KDB/Salah/Martial
    with Sterling/Dilva/Foden for a -4?

    Pope
    TAA Diop Doherty
    Salah Bruno Martial KDB Pullisic
    Vardy Greenwood
    Martinez DCL Fernandez Aurier

  22. KP - FPL
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Assuming KDB is one of your City attackers, which other two would you commit to for the rest of the season?

    a) Jesus and Dilva

    b) Sterling and Dilva

    c) Jesus and Sterling

    1. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      C

    Is it worth using my FT to bring in Foden for Saka? Would mean benching Jimenez. Otherwise will save and have 2 FT next week.

    There seem to be a lot of - 4s and - 8s flying about... I know there are some lovely fixtures (esp for city and Che)... But I just don't have any faith in my ability to predict starting XIs from anyone right now so really struggling to see the value in hits!

    That being said Man City front 6 against Bou...

    Foden-Jesus-sterling
    D.Silva-gundogan-fernandinho/B.Silva

    You heard it here first! 🙂 *based on no sauce whatsoever*

    Which sounds better on a Free Hit?

    A: Wan-Bissaka and Martial

    B: Trent and Greenwood

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      A

    2. John Nerdelbaum

      A

    How is the below FH team? Think I'm nearly there now!

    Patricio
    Azpi. AWB. Digne
    Sterling. Dilva. Fernandes. Martial. Pulisic
    Jesus. Ings
    Fodder. Wood. Stephens. Lamptey

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 12 days ago

      I'd have 3 Chelsea in there, maybe Alonso for AWB and then DDG instead of Patricio

  27. cuppatea78

    What do you guys reckon? I'm top in 4 of my mini leagues and 2nd in another by 30 points.

    A) Mane > Salah
    B) Mane > Willian
    C) Mane > Sterling
    D) Saka > Willian (this would mean 5 man midfeld with Jiminez on the bench)

    My team at the moment team looks like this:

    Pope
    TAA / O'Connell / Saiss
    Martial / Fernandes / Mane / KDB
    Jiminez / Ings / Greenwood

    Subs: McCarthy / Saka / Gomez / Taylor
    ITB £1.5

  28. AJ24
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 12 days ago

    Pope
    Trent, Saiss, Boly
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Pulisic (VC), Foden
    Jesus, Rashford

    Stek, Greenwood, LAscelles, Robinsion

    Good to go??

    Not a fan of hits, but thoughts on Jimenez -> Jesus for a -4?

    1. hogree

      Just done it, I'd get involved
