How will new positions at Man United affect their FPL assets in 2020/21?

Fantasy Premier League managers will have to entirely re-think how best to invest in Manchester United’s attack for the 2020/21 season.

The game-makers at FPL Towers have wielded their position-changing axe and reclassified no fewer than three key Red Devil assets for the new campaign.

Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) and Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) have been converted into midfielders to reflect their roles on the flanks of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attacking midfield trio, while Anthony Martial (£9.0m) has moved into the forwards bracket.

These changes are sure to impact squad selection for the new season, but could also affect the appeal of Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) who has remained a midfielder.

To fully assess which of the Manchester United attackers appeal the most for 2020/21, we have pulled out some key statistics from Project Restart, the only time that Fernandes, Rashford, Greenwood and Martial started matches consistently at the same time.

      Ings and Wood

      Maybe Bamford because he’ll be nailed for the first month at least

    How's it looking?

    Ryan

    TAA / Vinagre / Dallas

    Salah / KDB / Auba / Mahrez / ASM

    Antonio / Mitrovic

    ----
    Button / C.Taylor / K.Davis / N.Ferguson

    1. Auba and Mahrez the most likely to make way for United midfielders

    2. Enablers all dependent on fixtures - C.Adams, S.Armstrong also in the mix

      1a. Auba, Mahrez and ASM could theoretically become Rashford, Pulisic and Greenwood (if Utd don't sign Sancho)

      3. Slightly worried about Werner's ownership...

        I wouldn’t worry.

        Is Werner really going to get the 20 goals he needs to justify that price? Not on penalties and certainly not nailed with Abraham and Giroud about. Werner won’t play more than 2000 mins.

          Out of curiosity, who will be on Chelsea's penalties?

            Not the new boy.

    What’s people thoughts on Ake for £5.5m?

      Expect City to sign another CB, Koulibaly probably.
