Scout Notes

Fernandes and Rashford deliver but Man United still far from their FPL best

BRIGHTON 2-3 MAN UNITED

  • Goals: Neal Maupay (£6.5m), Solly March (£5.0m) | Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) own goal, Marcus Rashford (£9.5m), Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m)
  • Assists: Tariq Lamptey (£4.6m), Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.5m) | Nemanja Matic (£5.0m), Fernandes, Harry Maguire (£5.5m)
  • Bonus points: Fernandes x3, Maupay x2, March x1

Important Fantasy Premier League hauls for Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) papered over the cracks of yet another poor performance for Manchester United in Gameweek 3.

The Red Devils were comfortably second best at Brighton on Saturday lunch-time and somehow managed to leave the Amex Stadium with all three points.

They won the pulsating encounter thanks to one of the most dramatic climaxes to a Premier League match in recent history. Fernandes scored a penalty awarded beyond the referee’s full-time whistle, after Solly March (£5.0m) thought he had rescued a deserved point for Brighton.

It was the hosts, who hit the woodwork five times in Gameweek 3, who arguably emerged from this with more Fantasy appeal for the coming weeks as Neal Maupay (£6.5m) added his fourth attacking return of the campaign, March had a wealth of chances prior to his late goal and Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) hit the bar after delivering in each of his two previous outings.

It is, admittedly, a trip to in-form Everton up next, although Carlo Ancelotti’s men have only kept one clean sheet so far and conceded three goals across their first three matches – so there is every reason to believe the Seagulls can cause trouble at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, Fernandes – who concerned his owners with another poor game – thundered home the penalty and suddenly found himself with a goal, assist and involvement in two more. Despite the relative mediocre display, he ended proceedings with 12 points.

“I’m very happy for Marcus to get that goal. He was just a couple of inches offside on a counter-attack we had, with a great cross from Mason [Greenwood]. We did see some moments that we didn’t see last week. We’re getting a little bit better but I think we need to admit sometimes you get away with one, and today we probably didn’t deserve more than one point.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The 90 minutes were swamped with goals, disallowed strikes, shaken goalposts, overturned penalties and a ‘Panenka’ spot kick. Booked in the first half, the Portuguese playmaker then fouled Tariq Lamptey (£4.6m) and it was Maupay who cheekily dinked the penalty down the middle to put Brighton 1-0 up.

Soon after, in the 43rd minute, Fernandes hammered a free kick to the far post, which led to a goal initially awarded to Harry Maguire (£5.5m), assisted by Nemanja Matic (£5.0m) but later given as a Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) own goal.

VAR also overruled a Brighton penalty early into the second half, given against Paul Pogba (£8.0m) for catching Aaron Connolly (£5.5m) as he chased a March pass. A hectic resumption saw a second Man United goal ruled out, before Rashford scored a wonderful strike after being fed down the left channel by Fernandes. The 22-year-old cut inside and sent poor Ben White (£4.5m) flying with two dummies, before eventually finishing with his left foot.

After Fernandes advised FPL managers to “choose Anthony Martial (£9.0m) because I will give a lot of passes to him”, the Frenchman’s owners will be disappointed to see Rashford get this through ball as Martial toiled in another game without attacking returns. It will be difficult for managers to stick with him when there are so many attractive options up front, such as Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.3m), Raul Jimenez (£8.5m) and Danny Ings (£8.4m).

“We tried to press but they’ve got really good ball players at the back. When we were low, you can see we don’t have the legs or sharpness still. But we’ll get there.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Rashford’s goal stated his case for being selected as the Manchester United option, as did netting one of the disallowed strikes. Re-classified as a midfielder this time, Rashford may be just short of penalty-taking responsibilities but he would have claimed an extra 26 goal and clean sheet points if he was in midfield last season.

He may even get the occasional spot-kick, although Fernandes’ recent quote saying: “If someone comes to me to ask to take a penalty, I will not fight every time. I can easily say ‘You take it’”, already looks outdated after this match. That is now five consecutive away league wins, although they face Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal amongst their difficult next four outings.

Mason Greenwood (£7.5m) returned to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting line-up after being benched for last Saturday’s shock 3-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace. He was in great form during Project Restart and ended last season with ten goals, although vastly outnumbering his xG (expected goals) total of 2.91 could be interpreted in different ways. Is he a fantastic finisher, or was it a fluke?

However, if they fail to sign Jadon Sancho or anyone else in his position, Greenwood could end up being the best way to squeeze in some Manchester United coverage. He scored the other disallowed goal and looked bright, until being replaced late on.

“I thought we had scored with the last kick of the game. I don’t know where the extra time in added time came from, but we’re bitterly disappointed to concede in the way that we have because it’s a cruel blow after what was a good performance from us.” – Graham Potter

Brighton were the better, more progressive team of the first half and would have been comfortably ahead had it not been for the frame of David de Gea’s (£5.5m) goal. Trossard was twice denied by the post after being given the ball by Steven Alzate (£4.5m), becoming the first Premier League player to hit the woodwork twice in one game since Ings in January. He made it a hat-trick late on, thumping a left-footed shot off the crossbar.

It wasn’t just him. Adam Webster’s (£4.5m) looping header landed onto the bar, with March agonisingly hitting the post after the break. No team struck the woodwork more than three times in a match last year – the desperately unlucky Brighton did it five times here. Perhaps Graham Potter will want to check that the goal’s height was correct, as Spurs did on Thursday night.

Trossard was fantastic again. The Belgian scored against Chelsea on the opening day and assisted during Brighton’s convincing 3-0 win at Newcastle. He delivered five goals and five assists last season but head coach Graham Potter often rotated him, removing him from Fantasy radars. Yet he has played the full 90 minutes of all three matches so far – once their fixtures improve, he could be a very interesting option.

Up next for the Seagulls is trips to Everton and Crystal Palace, before hosting West Brom and travelling to Spurs. Regardless of opponent, the exciting Lamptey will be a good player to own. The pacy right wing-back turns 19 on Wednesday and bagged his third assist from three games, two of which have come from winning penalties. This follows his man of the match display at Newcastle, although that 57th minute withdrawal means he is still without a clean sheet. Mathew Ryan (£4.5m) remains a solid option in goal based on a balance of save and clean sheet potential.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION XI (3-4-3): Ryan; Dunk, Webster, White; Lamptey, Lallana (Gross 75’), Alzate, March; Connolly (Jahanbakhsh 75’), Trossard, Maupay

MANCHESTER UNITED XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Pogba (Fred 65’); Greenwood (Bailly 83’), Fernandes, Rashford; Martial (van de Beek 90’).

    2M Rank jump, early season FPL is madness!

    1. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      1.8 mio for me ...

    2. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      ranks are meaningless as scores still compressed
      not sure why people panicking, a 30pts difference is about 1.5-2m rank positions
      that is easily gained in a double gameweek at end of season

    Werner to DCL for a hit before price rises/drops, or keep him for Palace at home and transfer for free next wee?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Decent chance you'll need another hit.

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

      keep, DCL is at best one goal per game and currently over performing. Werner is capable of hauls. Patience.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Thank you for this

    3. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      palace have a decent defence, and hodgson knows how to set up team. also if you can use the funds elsewhere
      i hate early transfers but if there is a 0.2m swing for the week I'll always pull trigger, those 0.2s add up over a season
      plus if werner doesn't haul next week, there could be an even greater price gap

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Now this is food for thought. I am really undecided on this lol

  3. GE

    A) Martial -> Jimi
    B) Martial -> Ings
    C) Martial -> DCL

    Not sure whether to hit the WC tonight.

    McCarthy (Steer)
    Robertson Digne Justin Mitchell Ferguson
    Salah KDB Bruno Klich (Bissouma)
    Werner Wilson Mitrovic

    Looking to bring in Jimenez, DCL, Brewster, Mahrez, Foden, Trossard, TAA, James, Semedo, Dunne and a new keeper

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Nah bro team is fine. Idk how you’d even get Trossard Mahrez Foden lol, you dropping 3 of Salah KDB Bruno Klich?!

      Werner Wilson out for Jimenez DCL is just fine

    2. Bank$y
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      4 or 8 pt hit is all you need

  5. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Will see how the week goes, but either Ings or DCL in for Werner looks the move. Sick of owning Timo after a captain fail like that on WC.

    DIngs or DCL for the Hamez double up? Tempted by the former, to avoid eggs + basket

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Ings for me, westbrom next

        Said that about Werner(c) this week and look how it turned out though lol

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I didn’t say that 😉

          Werner out left with Tammy up front didn’t work, I think frank tried to shoehorn Tammy in there because of how well he linked up with Kai in mid week

          1. The Suspended One

            Ings will hit a brace brook mark it

  6. luk46
    • 2 Years

    what option do you prefer?

    A - Fernandes + Erner > Sterling + Jimenez for a hit
    B - Davies > Saiss
    C - keep / other option

    McCarthy Steer
    TAA Justin Vinagre Davies Mitchell
    Salah KDB Fernandes Podence Bissouma

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years

        This.

  7. Gudjohnsen

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Lamptey subs in. Could be worse.

    5. F4L
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      This is such bs. Desperate to try and save a FT with international break and the inevitable injures/positive Covid cases and now another injury to one of my players.

      Plus I don't know if Semedo is ready, Wolves better not go back to playing with a midfield 3 or Jimenez will get no service.

      1. Hey_Arnold
        • 7 Years

        What is wrong with him?

        1. F4L
          • 5 Years

          God knows, Nuno was just signing his praises in his last press conference.

      2. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        OP posted fake City lineups before so wouldn’t take his word for it, he probably just posts about any rumours he sees in twitter.

    6. Firmino

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

      I wouldn't.. I'd do Werner and Martial -->Jimenez and your pick of Ings/DCL (-4). You'll have a decent week 4 (on paper).

  9. F4L
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    What is the change in the handball rule that gave Everton the penalty?

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Was wondering that listening to the commentary, I wasn't aware of any change, thought to myself that would have been called a pen last season as well.

  10. Sarriball
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Could crack into the top 10k tomoro if Sterling captain, Kdb and Kane deliver

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      This just in..... Somebody's team will rise substantially in the rankings if their players do really well. Amazing analysis.

  11. Kane Lane
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Got benching dilemma next week who should I pick. One of them has to be on the bench first sub.

    A) Justin H (West Ham)
    B) Pod. H ( Fulham)
    C) James H (Palace)
    D) Son A (Man Utd)

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

      A

    2. F4L
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Podence will be lucky to be fit

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        You know literally nothing about his potential injury status.

        1. F4L
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Yeah fair enough. I guess we'll have to wait and see, but its such a weird rumour for someone to make up considering Podence's relatively low profile.

    3. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      How is this a difficult decision lmao
      Obviously Justin, being the only defender of the 4, and the other three being good to extremely good attackers playing for good teams

      1. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Sorry I thought James was Hamez, the answer is still overwhelmingly Justin tho

      Doesn't look like it, fplstats saying -50% which I must say am very surprised it isn't allot higher.

      very similar to mine. I need to do werner to dcl, that kid is for real.

    Nuno talking about Podence yesterday..

    “We have to realise Daniel joined us in the middle of last season, just before the terrible situation of the pandemic, so it disrupted the understanding and what we had in mind. I think he finished the season well and he has started this season very, very well.

    “He’s growing, understanding the idea better. He has talent, he has quality, he’s a hard worker and has been able to perform well for the team. We hope this continues, the normal growth of a player within the dynamic of the team.”

    https://www.wolves.co.uk/news/first-team/20200925-nuno-on-semedo-marcal-and-podence/

    He'd hardly go into detail on a player without mentioning he might be a doubt for that particular game?

    Werner, Soucek to Ings, Foden (-4), Yay or Nay ?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      About to do the same for Jimi instead of Ings

      Really early hit... too rash?

      1. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        I wanted to avoid early WC, also easier to payback with 34 weeks to go

    2. F4L
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Not long before Foden's competition comes back, both Jesus and Bilva predicted to be fit after international break. Depends if your happy to stomach the odd benching

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        More worried about no injuries with both playing today and foden potentially playing at midweek v burnley

  18. Top Lad Dakes.

    Think this is my worst ever start to an FPL season. Down to 3.2m OR, WC played this week and another captain fail.

    Pretty demoralizing stuff, just nothing going right

      • 11 Years

      Just do your own thing, your own research and have fun with it. Don't take it so seriously.

      Not even 3 GWs in mate, plenty of time to right the wrongs.

    3. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Only 26 points to top 1M and then from there it gets better. Plenty of time my friend, but I know it's tough..

      Your team looks fine, you just selected the wrong captain, many top FPL players capped Werner, so you're not alone.

      Positions & points are still really tight, I wouldn't even think about overall rank just yet

    6. Rhinos
      • 7 Years

      there's roughly 14m decent combinations this seasons. Sone of us are gonna have a shocker so buckle up for the ride

    Should I do:
    A. Wilson to Ings
    B. Soucek to Foden
    C. Wilson Soucek +Digne to Ings Foden + Coleman

    Martinez
    Digne Saiss Dallas
    Salah KDB (c) Son Prodence
    Jimenez Wilson DCL

    (Steer Soucek Justin Mitchell)

    1. Rhinos
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      why are you trying to sell Wilson before he's played?

      1. Hits from the Bong
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Wouldn’t do that one today, but the other one could be a 0.2 swing

        1. Rhinos
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          well im not gonna tell you to sell or buy someone before they've played so the options are a bit pointless

      Maupay or Watkins

      1. wulfranian
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        cheers.Maupay interesting.I can't get Watkings vs Liverpool.

        1. F4L
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Fair enough, I'll be benching Watkins most likely next week, but there's no doubt he could do some damage against Pool. He loves to run in behind, and Pool play with a high line.

          1. wulfranian
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            cheers.You don't trust Mitrovic?

            1. F4L
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Great player, we're just too bad mate. He won't get the service to really make the most of his goal scoring ability. At best expect a 1 in 3 goal scoring record.

              1. wulfranian
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Yeaah i guess you are right.You had your name "fulham4life" right?

    -4 taken so far already.

    3 Players close to falling
    Bruno -89% (hauled today - may stabilise sales)
    Vinagre -89% (maybe sales stop if he plays tomm)
    Werner -52% (will drop - will switch to Ings on WC)

    McCarthy-60% (could use a diff 4.5 keeper)
    TAA -55% (not going anywhere)
    KWP -55% (ticking along)

    DCL, Jrod, Jiminez, KDB, Justin and bench players looking decent

    Probably don’t need to WC just yet

    1. Rhinos
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      value on its own is a poor reason to wildcard anyway

      1. acesingh
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        It’s a balance between new info vs drops I need to bear for me

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Stay off fpl stats

    3. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      no need to WC, you can easily wildcard into a worse team

  22. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone actually keeping Werner? Convincing arguments anyone?

    Or is it definitely time to sell for now - probably for Ings

    1. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Ziyech + Pulisic coming back soon

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      i am keeping. i feel by saving transfer it will give me a better option to replace. also the fixture is not that bad he could easily score.

    3. Hospital Pass
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Manufactured a penalty from nothing against Liverpool. Whippet fast.

      But this Chelsea team scream 'work in progress/possible car crash' as their defensive woes are getting worse. I think there's better options (Jiminez/DCL/Ings). Do we really think we're going to miss a Salah-esq haul?

    4. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Probably give him the next two home games (although I'll be very tempted to switch him to Jimenez if he looks good again).

  23. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone going to punt Maupay? He has no competition and Brighton are playing some lovely attacking football plus he is on penalties.

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

      More interested in Trossard I think.

      Maupay definitely an option though for sure

    2. F4L
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Went for Watkins in the end, but he's a good shout. His PPG last year was slightly underwhelming, but this year Brighton have some attacking decent wing backs to provide better service.

    3. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Trossard looks even better

    4. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Prefer Trossard in a mid spot. Too many value strikers to choose from!

    5. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Yup him and Trossard (he would've scored huge v us lot on another day) are def on my radar now...they play decent football these days

  24. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Disappointed that I went Werner over Jimenez on WC in the end....ah well it's a funny ole game!

  25. Eriksen Maestro
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Greenwood to Pulisic if fit?

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Im like 90% sure Pulisic won't start the next game with Abraham, CHO and Mount all scoring. Frank won't want to risk him.

    2. Hospital Pass
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Too risky imo. Even if Pulisic starts, will he be sharp and up to speed immediately? If you skip a week mostly likely you'll miss an assist, not a blitz. Plus, Chelsea were 3-0 to West Brom and on the verge of tears. Pulisic isn't Maradona.

  26. Bleh
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Are Wolves playing again midweek or out of the cup?

    1. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Out of LC and no Europe, so they look sweet.

      1. Bleh

        Ta, Martial > Jimi done before price changes.

    Thoughts on this Bruno and Brewster to Foden and Jiminez-4?

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Nah, if you've hung on to Brewster for this long, surely you'd wait it out and see if he gets his move?

          43% hadn't realised, thought it would be much higher...a sweet DD haul hopefully!
