Analysing Fernandes and United’s other FPL assets after narrow West Brom win

Manchester United 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

  • Goals: Bruno Fernandes (£10.7m)
  • Assists: Juan Mata (£5.9m)
  • Bonus: Fernandes x3, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) x2, Victor Lindelof (£4.9m) x1

A twice-taken Bruno Fernandes (£10.7m) penalty was just enough for Manchester United to see off a spirited, if limited, West Brom side.

It was the Red Devils’ first league win at Old Trafford this season, prompting a relief-heavy comment from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer:

We needed that win at home. It’s never comfortable against players of this quality.

FERNANDES TO THE FORE

Over-hyping the opposition continues to be a Solskjaer trait because the Baggies were organised and committed, but that was generally where their qualities ended.

Then again, there wasn’t much of the good stuff on display from the home side either, with midfielder Fernandes the best of an average lot on the night.

That was the most pleasing Fantasy Premier League (FPL) aspect of the match as the 34.5%-owned midfielder was by far the most popular player on the pitch.

His ownership had been boosted by a Gameweek-leading one million-plus new owners for the West Brom encounter and yet another penalty – seven of his 14 goals for the club have come from the spot – meant he produced a second straight double-digit return for his managers old and new.

He did require a re-take to score it, however, when his first attempt was saved by the excellent Sam Johnstone (£4.5m), albeit from well off his goal-line.

But the goal was just reward for an influential performance from Fernandes.

He created two of the game’s three big chances, which forced fine saves by Johnstone from Anthony Martial (£8.7m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) respectively, and scored from the other one.

Fernandes’ form, and United’s fixtures, are tempting more managers into the midfielder’s fold – he’s currently one of the most popular purchases for Gameweek 10.

And a pleasant mix of matches over the next six Gameweeks, with four games away and the two at home against more progressive opposition in Manchester City and Leeds, should better suit United’s counter-attacking strengths.

NOT SO FORWARD THINKING

Penalties have nourished Fernandes owners through thin times. There’s not a lot of sustenance available for the team’s other attacking options.

On another day and against a rather less inspired keeper, both Martial and Rashford might have found the net.

But the former has had a truly terrible season so far, with more red cards than goals, while Rashford’s last four starts – which have included three stints up front – have produced just one assist.

Solskjaer has handed four starts out of the last five to Juan Mata (£5.9m) and it was the veteran’s cross that drew the handball for Saturday’s penalty award.

The Spaniard now has two assists from those starts, but his lack of pace does the side few favours and his freer role seems to compromise Fernandes’ ability to get forward at times.

Many United fans would rather see the more dynamic Donny van de Beek (£6.7m) given a chance in Mata’s place, a move that the conservative Solskjaer is yet to make, and might not even have contemplated.

The manager did provide an update on another midfielder – Paul Pogba (£7.7m):

Paul got a knock in the last game (for France) and he started feeling it yesterday after the session. Well, he felt it before the session, but he couldn’t carry on. Hopefully, he’ll be okay for Tuesday.

But the only attacking game in town at the moment remains Fernandes. United have had 109 attempts so far this season and just over a fifth (24) have come solely from him.

DEFENSIVE DIVIDENDS

At least the team’s backline is starting to produce points, with two clean sheets (and just two goals conceded) over the last four Gameweeks.

The side’s most popular defender, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m and 9.2%), brought in two bonus points, and eight overall, while Alex Telles (£5.5m) marked his league debut with a solid return for his 1.2% ownership.

United’s schedule is attractive enough to suggest more clean sheets can be kept for the foreseeable future.

But the prospect of attacking returns from the flanks remains remote.

United’s full-backs – including the injured Luke Shaw (£4.8m) – have created nine chances between them this season. 

That’s a total bettered by six defenders on their own, while West Ham’s Ryan Fredericks (£4.3m) can match that tally from just three appearances.

Until Solskjaer risks pushing his wide men further forward, Harry Maguire (£5.4m) is probably the better bet as a consistent attacking threat.

The centre-half’s 13 attempts this season is joint-top among defenders.

As for the Baggies, manager Slaven Bilic was understandably bitter about VAR overturning a penalty award when Fernandes tackled Conor Gallagher (£5.5m):

I’m very disappointed with the result and the decisions from the referee.

But from a Fantasy perspective, the less said about a team with just six goals and one clean sheet from nine games, the better.


Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Fred (McTominay 84); Mata (Cavani 62), Fernandes, Rashford (van de Beek 79); Martial.

West Bromwich Albion XI (5-4-1): Johnstone; Furlong, Bartley, Ivanovic (Krovinovic 79), Ajayi, Townsend; Gallagher, Sawyers, Diangana (Robson-Kanu 62), Pereira; Grant (Robinson 62).

    Bowen + Kane to KDB + Bamford (-4) ??

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

      Hmm seems like the move you should do, but I'm very unsure

      1. The Handsome Hunk
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        If Salah is unfit, I could possibly capt. KDB which could be no brainer.

  2. Sharkytect

    Is Fernandes a bit like Vardy? Don’t worry about his stats or the eye test. Just focus on his FPL output?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I thought he looked ok on the eye, created a couple of great chances (Bruno)

    2. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      He was very close to 2 assists too. He is erratic but that doesnt mean he doesnt create big chances every match. Most people have lot of issue with his shameless ambition mindset and Manutd as a whole so avoid. I think Bruno is useful if only kept long term

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      United were awful. Bruno is staying alive through dodgy penalties, at some point refs will stop giving them.

    4. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      This
      I just dont know when he will haul and I cant C him
      Thats why he is not for me

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

        He is such an awkward price for this. He keeps getting points somehow. I bought him with the intention of straight upgrade to KDB this week (1mil itb). Every week de Bruyne looks like he will get tons of points. His stats are always epic. But just not happening.

        Do I just stick with Bruno simply because he is getting the points in?

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

      Purely a ruthless business decision. Nothing pretty about this pick but get him if you like points

  3. Peter Ouch
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Into the top 100k with no players left.
    I hope the gamage won't be bad today and ill be at least on the top 150k.

    Have a good day all of you lads

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

      Not of any use to gauge anything this early. Example players like me which are many mostly end in top 10k come gw 38 even after languishing around a million for half of the season. Itsthe finish that matters especially dgw BB/TC not the start

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks for the kind words, I hope i won't swap places with you then 😉

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

          If u have history good finishes then why swap, we both can finish in top 5-10k 😉

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 5 days ago

        He's had an excellent start, no need to bring him down mate.

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

          My point is not that, it is not get too happy with the start unless u in league with monthly/quaterly cash rewards. People tend to let guard down and rank suffers if get too confident with strong start

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

      Think you'll be OK. Don't see any high scoring games from those.

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Being afraid of Zaha is my worst nightmare haha

        1. Congressman
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Didn't some dude post here before that Zaha is out?

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

    Assuming Wilson is back, I'll need to bench one of the below. Who would you suggest?

    A) Grealish
    B) Zaha
    C) Wilson
    D) Jota

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

      let zaha play, if poor then him

    2. The Handsome Hunk
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Wilson

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Wilson or Grealish. Not a situation you should put yourself in though.

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

      Thanks all. Will let one go soon and upgrade elsewhere.

  5. Hits from the Bong

    Mitchell to Kilman? 0.3 itb

    Martinez
    Chilwell Bellerin Coufal
    Salah Bruno Son Rodriguez Grealish
    Kane DCL

    Steer Brewster Nico Mitchell

    1. Aston VII lalalala
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Why? We don't know if he'll be back into the team yet? Unless you have a transfer to burn, why would you make this move?

  6. waltzingmatildas

    Would you wc this?
    *Players I'd probably change
    Mccarthy button
    Chilwell James ayling* Taylor* mitchell
    Mané* Bruno grealish soucek* bissouma
    DCL Kane* Bamford

    Or Kane and bissouma to kdb and

    1. waltzingmatildas

      Oops. Meant to be Kane to vardy

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

    In an amazing defensive five of Robbo Chilwell Lamptey Coufal Kilman I keep getting clean sheets playing 3 of them. Now I also want Dallas. The plan was Robbo out but this isn't going to happen by any means. I completely forgot Cancelo now.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      it was just arsenal
      I don't think dalas is essential in your defence, already really good back 5

    2. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I have same def but Mitchell to Kilman. Planning to Lamptey -> Cancelo

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

        Oh no.. Lamptey is a special piece. He is playing like a RW

  8. RECKLESS
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Which of these 4/5 you need long term?
    1) KDB
    2) Salah
    3) Son
    4) Kane
    5) Dcl
    Currently on 1 2 3 and 5 as Bamford instead of DCl doesnt feed me with confidence and Son seems to have better upside

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

      2 3 4

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

      Really tough. I'd put Bruno in there too. Sorry doesn't help!

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      KDB, Salah, DCL

    4. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      3, 4, 5

  9. No Professionals
    • 3 Years

    Salah back this weekend. Now I have the dilemma of whether to get him or KDB

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      KDB for me ; Salah week 12

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

      That's not a dilemma..

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      KDB now and fulham
      Salah for fulham

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Will probably look to have both by GW12 myself

  10. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Currently own Kane and Son, looking at ways to get KDB in

    A) KDB, Kane & Barkley
    B) KDB, Kane & Jota (-4)
    C) KDB, Watkins & Barkley (-4)
    D) KDB, Watkins & Jota (-8, or over 2 weeks)

    1. Vazza
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Who else is in your team?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Current team is:
          Martinez - 4.0
          Robbo - Zouma - Lamptey - Targett - Kilman
          Son - Bruno - JRod - Barkley - Soucek
          Kane - DCL - Adams

      • Vazza

          Not sure who you are bringing in and taking out

      • Vazza
          2 months, 5 days ago

          So who has ended up falling into the Jota shaped trap?

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

            What's not to love?

            Incredible form, attacking team. Even if he gets 100 minutes every 2 games, he will be gold at his price.

            Very much on my radar

            1. Vazza
                2 months, 5 days ago

                I’m glad you are saying this. I brought him in yesterday for Rodriguez and wanted to establish whether it was a good move. Thanks mate 😉

            • 4 Years

            Have 2FTs and 3.1ITB - I could do Kane Reguilon to Vardy (c) Cancelo.

            Would you also add Hamez to Sterling for a hit ?

            Martinez
            Robo/Kilman/Chilwell
            Bruno/Son/Hamez/Grealish
            Kane/DCL/Bamford

            Martin/Reguilon/Mitchell/Stephens

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

              Just Kane to Vardy and play Reguilon or Kilman. Both could clean

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

                Just have 2 FTs and a lot ITB, would like use it somehow

              James Rod & Kane to KDB & Vardy ... except Vardy was limping heavily after the game

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                I’m 0.1 short due to that last scam KDB price rise with no reason...ofc will wait on Vardy news

            So, are people still going early with their transfers and hits even though there is a full midweek schedule and Covid spreading around that could strike down any of your 15 squad ?

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Planned but will wait as always

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

              Problem is as always, planned transfers are spot on budget, so can't afford e.g. Vardy price rise

            3. Aston VII lalalala
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              I did my -8 last week and there are no pressing issues now. I hope to save 2 FT

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

            Great GW for me - 74 points total and moved from 1.2 M to 600k in OR.

            Though have some headaches regarding transfer/s this week:

            I have 1 FT and 4.5 mln in the bank.

            Martinez
            Robbo - Zouma - Chilwell
            Son - Hamez - Ziyech - Grealish
            Kane - DCL - Watkins

            Moves I consider:
            A) Zouma ➡ Cancelo
            B) Hamez ➡ KDB
            C) Son ➡ KDB
            D) Kane ➡ Vardy

            Thought..?

              game week isn’t over yet ... I still have 3 players to play and I am yet to hear any fat ladies warbling 🙂

              James Rod & Kane to KDB & Vardy ... except Vardy was limping heavily after the game

            2. Atimis
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Great jump, also moved 1.5m to 880k myself. Trying to keep moving up I think that Kane to Vardy (c) is the way

              1. LewanGOALski
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                didn't watch the game,thanks for the input

                On paper Kane -> Vardy looks OK, though I keep asking myself whether I should drop the main striker who plays for one of 2 best teams at this moment and who can can both assist and score and have pens, to the guy who mainly relies on penalties and eventually counter-attack.
                Hmmmm...

            3. Aston VII lalalala
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              I don't like any of these moves. City have no form.

              I thought about D myself, but I don't think there is really any pressing need for it. I'm going to save a FT myself.

            1. Hamez and Jimenez to Salah and Bamford (-4)

              I'd watch Jiminez in today's game and if he blanks, go to Vardy.

                2.6m ITB and 2 FTs, considering either just Son > KDB or Son & Kane > KDB & Vardy, what you reckon?

                  C.

                  KDB & Vardy look like the best / most popular targets.
                  Pedigree, track record (long term), fixtures & on pens.
                  Not owning if they haul could really hurt OR over the next few GWs.

                  Jealous you have 2FT & can do both! 🙂

                  As a Chelsea fan & playing spurs next, get both Son & Kane out mate!

                  Good luck.

                Too early still but a couple of options on my mind:
                a) Werner to Vardy (c)
                b) Bruno to Salah with KDB (c) most probably
                c) Saiss to Cancelo/Dias
                d) A combination a/b + c for a -4 as i think is worh the hit

                  Saiss upgrade seems most pressing.

                Mane & Bamford > Jota & Vardy (1.2 ITB). Thoughts? Could take a hit to upgrade Rodriguez to Ziyech too?

                  Losing Mane and Bamford is madness imo, don't do that.
                  Rodriguez to Ziyech after this week sounds good but not for this GW

                    Can only upgrade to Ziyech with Mane funds... ☹️

                  I like Vardy but is there another way? Mane stil seems a better pick to me but understand might be the only option.

                  Wouldn’t do the hit this week

                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      Bruno has SOU, Mane has BHA. You'd have to sell one of those in order to get KDB I'm guessing. Yet both fixtures have points in em. At best you could do a double transfer, but not sure KDB would guarantee you 4points back and change.

                    2. Pitch Perfect
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      Picture might change if Vardy injured, but otherwise you'd want him v FUL.

                        Yeah would have to move on mane , Bruno , Kane or Vardy to get kdb.

                        Is there rumours of Vardy injured then?

                    Yep that’s affordable. Scary to lose Kane though with his ownership

                  Wouldn't be rushing to get rid of Son. Especially not for a hit.

                    I completely agree but it’s Salah.

                    What about the Kane one ? Don’t wanna get rid of him either but

                      I'd rather ship Kane to find Salah... Not sure Bamford will register v Everton. Then he has Chelsea next. Wilson better fixture run?

                I've stubbornly held onto Foden up until now partly due to this fixture run, City struggling for goals, surely Phil will get a start soon. What do you reckon, hold or sell ?

                1. ShaunGoater123

                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  Everything points to sell.

                  But, I actually think he’ll start this week and tempted to get him in! That’s purely gut instinct though, every data point says it’s a sell at this point

                2. Carefree Crew
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  I've got Foden too. My thoughts were with City's injuries he was worth the punt at that price, we've been a bit unlucky with him getting ill & affecting at least one of his starts, especially after coming on & scoring.

                  I'm selling for KDB. Too much of a rotation risk, better value at similar price points & only 5MF places. Plus he's taking up a city place in case their form radically changes.

                  Eg Cancelo, KDB, Aguero might be what I want.

                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    I agree completley, the illness a few weeks ago really disrupted momentum. If I didn't have any other issues I'd sell I think but with Podence and possibly only 2 defenders this week, I may have to move elsewhere. I own Raz too so one more City spot available currently. GL.

                What to do here?

                1 FT and 2.1 ITB

                Not sure if I should do Fernandes to Salah this GW or GW12, I really want to keep Bruno though because I'll lose value on him and it will be hard to get him back for almost 11m

                  Really difficult decision

                  Prob KdB due to City’s overall form but that carries its own risks

                  Nice team mate.
                  I wouldn't be selling KDB with his fixtures & City players back from injury. He's over due a haul IMHO.

                  Bruno better away from home. Salah GW12 v Brighton seems like a good move.
                  Hold & reassess next week. Injuries, suspension, form may help your decision & having 2FTs & £ is an enviable position to be in.

                  I expect KDB & Vardy will be the highest transferred in, so you may make some profit too, depending on what you paid for them.

                  Not dropping yet, all your targets but Brewster having EU football mid week. I'd monitor & wait.

                  James at home may do well against an attacking Leeds team, not sure I'd be selling yet, especially if for a minus 4 points.
