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′).

    Pope
    Doherty/Azpi/Mendy
    Mane/KDB/Fernandes/Pulisic
    Rashford/Vardy/Greenwood
    (Button/Saint-M/Taylor/Lascelles)

    Saint M -> Foden and bench Greenwood?

    Thinking Mendy either starts or no shows completely, planning BB 37 and
    FH 38

    1. GE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Sounds good

  2. GE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Captain who?

    1) Sterling
    2) KDB
    3) Bruno
    4) Vardy
    5) Pulisic

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

      Sterling

    2. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'm going Pulisic probably. It's Norwich. A must win for Chelsea. I don't see Norwich keeping up with the intensity, and they've looked horrible after the restart as well.

    3. Hands! Touching Hands..
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Apart from Vardy i have the same choices and purely down to squad rotation i will be putting armband on Pulisic.

    4. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Bruno

    5. Effe
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      5

  3. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Anyone captaining Foden? Currently has the armband for me but not overly happy with that. Son has a good chance too

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Yes, debating him or Bruno atm, feeling I need to take a risk as slid down the rankings these last few weeks.

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Me, not overly happy about it either. But gotta gamble a little bit every once in a while

    3. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Brilliant differential, can he be trusted to start though. I know logic says he should but since when has logic ever be able to predict Pep.

    4. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Foden(c) feels like a Barkley-esque trap to me.

  4. Van der Faart
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    2 to play alongside TAA

    A) Kiko
    B) Taylor
    C) Boly
    D) Egan

    1. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      B & C

  5. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    FH Team G2G?

    Ederson
    Tark , Azp, AWB
    Pulisic, Willian, Stirling, Bruno, Antonio
    Ings, Jesus

    McCarthy, Greenwood, Digne, Egan

    Or should I do Tark > Doherty?

    Any feedback appreciated 🙂

    1. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'd start Digne over Tark - greater attacking upside

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        was thinking Tark > Doherty myself, thoughts?

        1. QuintonFortune25
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yes its just Doherty hasn't really been at it from an attacking point of view, whereas Digne has been. Wolves are more defensively solid than Everton and Burnley so Doherty is a good bet

          1. the dom 1
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Cheers Fam

    2. Effe
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Looks good. Very similar to mine except I have Martial instead of Sterling as City’s line up is too unpredictable for me.

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks mate, bit scared about Stirling but he is in form so Pep should keep that momentum going you would think?

        1. Effe
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          You could be right. I really don’t know... I only have Ederson and Jesus from City at the moment

    3. merin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Get Martial instead of Sterling. Sterling will be benched I think (Pep said he’ll rotate). Then find another replacement for AWB

  6. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    surely some MU players will be rested with FA cup game looming?

    1. ZoumasBloomers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      FA cup nowhere near as important as champions league

    2. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Rash, Martial, Bruno, Pogba all to start imo. More concerned about Greenwood.

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Isn't it the opposite, greenwood starts in the league but fa cup maybe they go with 3CM and Bruno cam

    3. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Unlikely, can't afford to slip up again.

  7. Garam MOSALAH
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Play
    A) Holgate
    B) Lascelles

    Will Holgate start or come in as a sub ?

  8. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    RP on new article

    Foden or Dilva for next 2 (then FH)?

    I’ll also have Sterling from MCI.

    Maybe Foden better at least for this week as it lowers the risk because of his chance of starting/ playing higher up?

  9. QuintonFortune25
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    What's your thoughts on:

    A) DCL to Ings (Captain Bruno)

    B) Vardy & Mahrez to Ings & Sterling (c) (for a hit)

    Rank is 68k so looking to push for 25k. Bus team is:

    Foster
    TAA - Doherty - Saiss
    KDB - Mahrez - Foden - Fernandes - Martial
    Rashford - Vardy

    Martin - DCL - Kiko - Lascelles

    1. ZoumasBloomers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I’d rather have Vardy and Mahrez

      1. QuintonFortune25
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks!

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

      Was tempted by B myself but not sure if sterling even starts after 90 against Brighton

    3. merin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      A

    4. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'd do B

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

    Only Fernandes from Manu enough on FH or go a def/DDG or fwd?

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      With Rashford, if you can.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Over Ings?

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I would, unless you want to shuffle mids and get Martial.

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

      I’d have a defender, palace aren’t scoring

    3. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'd probably try to get Martial in. On fire atm.

  11. FPL_DON
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Madness to take a -4 for aurier > Alonso, providing early team news of course.

    Could be a monster haul

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I’ll be doing that exact move if he starts. If not I’ll get Azp in. Can see a clean sheet for chelsea

    2. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      We will defo find out in time?

      1. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 11 Years

        I’ve got a feeling we won’t

    3. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Just remember last Chelsea Norwich game earlier in the season finished 3-2

    4. Effe
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      If we get early team news and he’s starting then I’d go for it

    5. LloristheHounds
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I'm thinking the same

      Aurier-> alonso

      Yes

  14. GAMBIT
    • 5 Years

    Is it the week for a differential captain? Thinking of going Pulisic (C) instead of City or United players. Might even go with Ings!

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Yep, not sure it’s a differential though

  15. Jerr63
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Thanks for those notes David.

    That’s the first United report for weeks that Mason Greenwood hasn’t even got a mention.

    Palace has struggled in defence during the last month and the United front four may find some better returns later in the week.

  16. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    on FH currently have no MU attacking coverage. On the basis if this do you prefer

    1. Giroud and Martial
    2. Giroiud and Fernandes
    2. Willian and Vardy (no MU attacking coverage)

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years

  17. ZoumasBloomers

    Just realised I want to get in Martial for the Villa game but won’t be able to see the FA cup game first. This schedule is a killer.

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      martial already played villa though

    2. Rinseboy

      The pandemic is a killer

  18. Liastro ⭐️
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Willian or Pulisic in for Mahrez?

  19. Darzinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    When is the watchlist due to be updated next?

  20. YouReds
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    To FH or not to FH

    Pope*
    Digne Doherty* Saiss*
    Sterling Mahrez* Martial Bruno
    Vardy* Jiménez* Greenwood

    Apart from Mahrez I think removing any others could backfire!

    Possible FH team:
    DDG
    Azpi Digne TAA
    Pulisic Sterling Dilva Willian Bruno
    Jesus Ings

    1. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Morning all,

    Another shocking GW for me.

    Have managed to drop to 42 points behind in my ML in 2 weeks when I was leading before!

    FH team needs a few differentials to catch up;

    Kepa
    TAA Azpi Digne
    Dilva Sterling Martial Willian Richarlison
    Ings Jesus

    Probs captain Sterling.

    Any suggestions / comments are much appreciated!

    1. Stormbringer22

      Strong team my man! The only one I am not particularly keen on is Richa but as you say, you need differentials... Would still rather double up on Willian + Puli if on FH instead of Richa

      1. LC1
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks bud.

        I did have Puli & Willian but changed it to Richarlison this morning as my rivals both have Puli.

        Such a tough one!!

          I mean, if you want to be really really brave, you could go for Barkley... That is high-risk business though. Some help below please?

      no way

      What were your other transfers?

    Good morning all,

    A little help below would be appreciated.

    KDB • Mahrez • Bruno • Martial • Willian
    Vardy • Ings (Gwood 1st bench)

    A. Save FT
    B. Mahrez > Foden
    C. Mahrez > Dilva
    D. Mahrez + KDB > Sterling + Foden/Dilva (-4)

    I have convinced myself that Sterling will start that game so I am leaning towards D. However, selling KDB for a hit also seems a bit risky.

      Both B, C and D look nice. Depends which City player you want and who you captain. Why you convinced Sterling starts?

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks man. Convinced is a strong word, but my thinking was that he didn't start against NEW and played only half an hour. That was just 2 games ago. The likes of Mahrez have started the last 3-4 and played a decent chunk of time

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Yeah. You are in a nicer position than me with Willian. No Chelsea worries me 🙁

    2. LC1
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B looks good to me.
      I'm confident Dilva starts.

        Cheers mate!

  25. Return of the FF

    Thoughts on a FH this week?

    Current:

    Hendo, Nyland
    TAA, Walker, Doc, Saiss, Taylor
    Salah, KdB, Bruno, Martial, Pulisic
    Vardy, Greenwood, Nketiah

    FH:

    Pope / 3.9
    TAA, Doc, Egan, Taylor, Saiss
    William, Pulisic, KdB, Sterling, Bruno
    Jesus, Giroud, Greenwood

    Still 1.3m itb. Worth doing this or amending FH picks (defence needs more thought)? Or stick with existing team?

    Cheers!

    1. Effe
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I would do the FH

  26. Canary_Kid
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Best time to TC before 38 (BB)? Was all locked in on KDB this week for Bournemouth at home but worried about rotation. Bruno/Martial vs West Ham/Crystal Palace a better shout?

  27. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Best move?

    A. Vardy >> Jesus
    B. Jimenez >> Giroud
    C. KDB >> Pulisic / Sterling
    D. FH

    Martinez
    TAA • Doherty • Holgate
    Salah • Martial • KDB • Bruno • Foden
    Vardy • Jimmy
    (3.9, Greenwood, Lascelles, Kiko)

    Draft FH team;

    DDG
    TAA • Doherty • Alonso
    D. Silva • Pulisic • Foden/Sterling • Martial • Antonio
    Jesus • Giroud

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      If I could be in a position to do KDB to Sterling for free, I would definitely pull that trigger. C for me. Some help above please?

    2. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      A or C

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks. Who would you go for in C? Sterling or Puli?

  28. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    A) FH team GTG

    B) Fit in more Utd (who?)

    C) too much with both Willian and Pulisic?

    Pope
    Azpi, Digne, TAA
    Sterling (c), Foden, Willian, Pulisic, Bruno
    Jesus, Ings

    Subs: Martinez, Rashford, Stevens, Saiss

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Rashford to greenwood and upgrade elsewhere...But maybe you don’t actually need the extra funds.

  29. tibollom
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    FH now or on the last GW? got 1 FT and 0.5 ITB and not sure on what to do?

    Patricio Button
    TAA Doherty Aurier Lascelle Robinson
    Mane KDB Bruno Willian Luiz
    Rash Greenwood Vardy

    1. tibollom
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      was thinking maybe Mane to Sterling....

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Think I’d hold FH for now, rotation tougher to call I think for the big hitters

      1. tibollom
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        thanks mate, what move should I do with my FT then?

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          If you think sterling starts, do that. Maybe Luiz to Foden? Not sure if the money works.

  30. Rinseboy

    2 months, 6 days ago

    are either of these moves worth a -4? KDB my only city asset and worried he doesn't play.

    KDB to Sterling/Dilva or Foden -4?
    Vardy to Jesus -4?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I don't think the Vardy to Jesus one is worth it, however, I do have the same dilemma as you on the KDB to Sterling -4. Seems of late, you and I have similar dilemmas each week. Martial (C) paid off this time around! 😀

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        yes mate get in!
