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′).

      To help with the Man City line up predicting I've done research to see what the websites are predicting so you have them all in one place...

      4th Official Site - Ederson, Walker, Garcia, Laporte, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne, Sterling, Jesus, B.Silva

      101 Great Goals Site - Ederson, Cancelo, , Otemendi, Stones, Zinchenko, Gundogan, D.Silva, Foden, Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez

      Sports Mole - Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko; Gundogan, Fernandinho, D.Silva; Bernardo, Jesus, Foden

      SportsKeeda - Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Aymeric Laporte, Eric Garcia, Olexandr Zinchenko; Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Phil Foden; Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling

      Freesupertips - Ederson – Cancelo, Stones, Otamendi, Zinchenko – Fernandinho, D. Silva, Gundogan – Sterling, Foden, Jesus

      A few players are very popular with all - Jesus in all of them, Foden, Sterling in 4, D.Dilva in 3 stated these as they seem the most popular around here for the FH)

      Hope this helps a little

        So basically nobody knows.

        great job thanks man

        They know less than we do about this. Not particularly helpful.

        Let me add mine just for kicks:

        Ederson, Cancelo, Otamendi Stones, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, KdB, Foden, Dilva, Sterling

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          i predict and we will see tomorrow who is right: Ederson Cancelo Otamendi Stones Mendy Rodri Gundogan KDB Foden Sterling Jesus

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

          That is true, we know more, specially when leaving out Dilva and Foden..
          KDB, Sterling and Jesus the hard calls.

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

        So Ederson definitely starts

        1. SH@KTIMAAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Don't Jinx it

      5. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        i believe KDB and Jesus will almost sure start this is why they were subbed at 63 mins last game while Sterling and Mahrez probably benched because they played full 90 mins

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

          Sterling has played 58, 32, 90. And he's been repeatedly said as one of the fittest people in the squad. I can't see him benched again. Mahrez has played 58, 74, 90. He's much more likely to be benched.

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            He's said similar about Riyad tbf, but agree is is more likely to be benched

        2. HurriKane
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          doesn't work like that im sorry. pep has countless times benched a player that played 60 mins in a previous game .

          General Consensus is With league gone Pep will go all out for FA Cup and CL Hence its highly likely he will want his big guns as fresh as possible for cup ties. So likes of KDB Mahrez and Sterling are all at risk of starting from bench vs Bournemouth

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            yes but in order to have his guns fresh he has to play them to be in form

        3. DontPiqueTooSoon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Sterling had 29mins, 58mins and 78mins in preceding three games so in spite of him playing 90min last time out I reckon he will start again but be brought off like KDB/Jesus last game around 60min mark. 105 mins rest in past 4 games is not bad.

          KDB and Mahrez have both had far more minutes on the pitch than him since restart (Mahrez 472min, KDB 464 min and Sterling 435min)

          1. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            why do people think Mahrez has most minutes?

            is there a reason for him starting 6 times and only one sub vs Pool?

            why do people assume FA cup is making Pep to do changes up front? What if he does not want jesus to start that game? Why do people assume mahrez starts in the fa cup and therefore rested vs BOU? You are predicting a line up based on a line up that does not exist..

    • RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      OK, think I’ve decided to FH. How’s this look?

      DDG
      TAA • Digne • Alonso/Azpi
      Sterling • D.Silva • Pulisic • Martial • Antonio
      Jesus • Giroud

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

        Looks very good. Very similar to mine but I went Ings+Willian over Giroud+Martial

        You think Giroud will start?

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Might go Ings too looking at fixtures. Tough call

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

        pretty similar to mine. DDG seems a crazy shout tho!

        You not worried about rotation from the teams in the cup?A lot of games for them in next

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

        Reece James is a better pick than Azpi on FH, way better crosser and Azpi on the left doesn't get nearly as many crosses in as he does on the right

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

          1. CostaCoffee
            • 7 Years

            No, can see him starting the last 2 games in a back 5 but not tonight

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                We wont play a back 5 against Norwich

                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  what makes you so sure about that?

                  First, missing Kanté and Jorginho pretty much not an option, Kova is just back which means fielding more than 2 CM´s is tough and Norwich are bad defending from width, both left and right side, to me that says Alonso and Reece/Azpi providing width with Barkley/Kova in central mid and a 3 front with Giroud and guesswork on the two others. Exploiting Norwich´s problem defending from both flanks is surely something lampard and his team is aware of.

                  It´s not about 5 at the back, it is a set up to cause Norwich trouble. Alonso also a threat on set pieces which also isa weakness of this Norwich defense.

      4. It’s gonna Ben Mee

      Giroud or Ings?

      1. CostaCoffee

        Ings

    • ViperStripes

      No chips left, is it worth a few hits to get in city and chelsea players? Only KDB at the moment.
      e.g.
      Salah>Sterling
      Vardy>Mahrez
      Martial>Willian
      Saka>Pulisic
      12pt hit

      That still leaves me with Fernandes & Greenwood vs Palace
      TAA for Liverpool assist potential
      Surely at least 1 of those 4 has got to get a haul to make the 12pt hit worthwhile

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

        God no

      2. Lindelol

        Depends what you're playing for whether -12 is worth it

      4. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        to many players out that can hurt you and has form and fixture to do so. Not sure how that Vardy to Mahrez transfer is going for you, you meant Ings? Jesus?

        You would want Martial back for 37, and he can haul vs Palace even if it is away from home. You can´t be dead certain Sterling starts and taking out Salah before Arsenal and Chelsea with their defensive issues and guaranteed 75+ most likely 90 minutes sounds bad imo. If you get 2 starts from Raz in the next 2 consider yourself lucky.

      How to get Martial here? sick and tired of thinking that it's not logical to convert DDG > Martial for a hit. Got 1FT and 1m

      DDG
      Taa • Doherty • Holgate ----------- Kiko Lamptey
      Mahrez • KDB • Bruno • Pulisic --- Guendouzi
      Jimmy • Rashford • Vardy

      1. bench boost for every gamew…

        to be fair with that team i would just wait and convert Puli to Martial next week, with DDG into Martinez perhaps?

      Is Aubamayang a good option for the last the last two games with him chasing the golden boot?

      Is my FH team good to go?

      De Gea
      AWB - Azpi - Digne
      Fernandes - KDB - Pulisic - Sterling - Antonio
      Jesus - Ings

      I've got about 2.1 m ITB so some cash to play with!

      1. eamonhegg

        Fernandes?

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

          ignore

        similar to mine. Not sold on DDG. Pope better I think, especially with AWB in there.

        Digne suspect. I've got him in my FH team but I'm not convinced.

      3. bench boost for every gamew…

        Alonso if you get confirmation before deadline he starts. Not sure your triple United is the best one for that game but in order to get that front 7 with antonio and Puli ings it could be a decent solution. I think i would go Dilva over KDB, or in other words i think i would go Dilva over Antonio and leave that KDB spot for either one of Salah/Mané. AWB is going to get yellow vs Zaha and Lindelof will will be the one with higher chance of bonus if United keeps cs. If Williams is declared fit he is also likely to start with Shaw out (if he is that is it looked like that anyway).

        Reason why i say a liverpool mid is that both are not that highly owned and constitutes sort of a differential this week and while Arsenal have become better they still do mistakes and Liverpool will be up for it. To me this way you get 3 City plus one of the power mids from Liv in a week where City,Chelsea and United face a cup semi just days after this one.

          Would you go Mane over Giroud/Willian? (have puli and alonso)

            doing FH this week a triple Chelsea is def something to consider, but at the same time a Liv mid could also be a shrewd move. Not sure that helps.

              Hmm I could fit both if i did Foden to Ederson

              Ederson

              Digne, Alonso, Maguire

              Mane, Bruno, Dilva, Pulisic,

              Jesus, Giroud, Ings

      What time is Pep's press conference? Not that we'd get any ideas about the starting line up, lol

    • Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Hopefully three differential captains for final three GWs:

      Pulisic (NOR)
      Martial (WHU)
      D.Silva (NOR)

      What are the 5 defenders you would have if you could use both FH and BB on 38?

      TAA, Azpi/Alonso, Digne, Taylor, PVA/Cresswell?

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Can't use both in the same week.

          Sorry I should have said hypothetically! I am WCing now and trying to get 5 good D for 38BB

      2. Lindelol
        • 2 Years

        Only 1 chip per week

      How's my FH team looking:

      Pope (McCarthy)
      Tark Azpi Digne (Maguire Saiss)
      KDB Sterling Antonio Pulisic Bruno
      Jesus Ings (Greenwood)

      0.8 ITB if needed for changes

      Is Holgate in contention to start?

    • Chelsea91
      • 1 Year

      Pope or Mc Carthy to start ?

    • skandinho
      • 8 Years

      I currently have 2 FT, and tempted to play FH. If I choose to FH, will I still have 2 FT for GW37?
      Thanks
