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).

    Best move to get a good Captain...

    A. Kane >> Vardy(C)
    B. Bruno >> Salah(C)
    C. Bruno >> KDB(C)
    D. Any other ideas?

    McCarthy
    Chilwell, Cresswell, Justin
    Bruno, Ziyech, Rodríguez, Grealish, Son
    Kane, DCL
    (4.0, Saiss, Mitchell, Davis)

      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Have the same dilemma as you, see below. I'm not sure losing Bruno after 1GW is the right decision. I would lean towards A. Depending if you money itb, you can use Rodriguez and Son to bring in Salah or KDB.

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Saving the FT as suggested by dragon, can allow you to look transferring out Son and Rodriguez

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I’m in same boat. A genuine other option is save FT. Fernandes has an amazing away record (never blanked away?) so he is def a good captaincy option this week bs Saints

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah, that is the other option. Slightly worried about no Vardy, KDB or Salah this week though. I think they are all probably better Captain picks that Bruno

    3. drughi

      Went A myself after watching fulham yesterday, my god that was embarrassing

  2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Who is the priority to bring in for GW10 with no standout captain in my team?

    Vardy, Salah or KDB/Sterling?

    3.3itb 1ft
    Martinez
    Chilwell Cancelo Justin
    Grealish Son Rodriguez Bruno
    Watkins DCL Kane
    (Peacock Ayling Taylor Bissouma)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Tough question isn’t it. I’m tempted to go Bruno >> KDB but it could backfire 🙂

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Very tough. Will wait until after games in Europe and some podcasts before making a decision. Kane to Vardy is my initial transfer thoughts.

    2. LE CHARO
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I've got a very similar team, in particular the same frontline, and £4.3m itb, so facing a similar dilemma myself. All the possibilities are open, I could even directly do Watkins > Vardy. But as much as I'd like to keep Kane, I think Kane > Vardy is the right play here.

      City have not been convincing so far and I'd rather miss a big haul than invest £11.5m in a player I'm not that comfortable captaining against Burnley. And Fernandes has 2 away games next, in which he has never blanked before, so he could easily match or beat Salah.

  3. Hryszko
    • 3 Years

    Burke & Podence > Mendy & Soucek? To ensure I've got a full playing bench, and moving on from Podence.. Thoughts?

    Anything worth a hit?

    Martinez
    Robertson, Coufal, Chilwell
    Ziyech, Bruno, Son, Jota, Grealish
    Kane, DCL

    Subs: Forster, Brewster, Mitchell, Dunne

    Got 2.5 ITB

      Whats your plan on Getting salah back?

  6. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    Want to move out Podence & Burke to ensure I have a full playing bench & want to shift Podence anyway..

    Looking at doing Burke > 4.5m playing midfielder.

    Podence > 5.6m midfielder, who are my best options?

    Armstrong, Soucek, March?

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Moving Burke out is not worth using a FT or a hit. Wait until WC. Go Soucek and use the funds somewhere else

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Even though he's going to drop again this week?

        1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Points over money! There are so many options this season so if you are priced out, there is always another good option. He is your 5th mid bench fodder. Replacing him with another 4.5 who also may drop in price is simply a waste of a transfer. Surely you use FT or a hit on player who has the potential to score highly, not on replacing a 5th mid bench fodder with similar who score 1-2 points most GWs.

  7. caldracula

    Zaha to Sterling for a hit?

    1. JabbaWookiee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      No. Why get rid of him ahead of two plum fixtures?

      1. caldracula
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Palace don’t really score many and city have a great run. Also have exact cash.

        1. JabbaWookiee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Neither do City at the moment. But if you def want to go for one then I'd go KdB. Looking lively, guaranteed to start and on pens. I know it's template but so early in the season that shouldn't be a concern.

          1. caldracula
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            I’m priced out of KDB after that random price rise the other day. I think it’s a risk worth taking although I took a risk this week and it flopped quite badly!

            1. JabbaWookiee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 14 days ago

              Don't talk to me about flops. I'm the king of flops this season. So to speak.

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Yes for me
      High riskes, high rewards
      Zaha won't outscore Sterling in the next 4 games for sure

      1. caldracula
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yah I think I’m just going to have to go for it. Only 4% ownership could be a good differential.

    3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I'm biased against CRY and Zaha so I would take the hit as I'm not a fan but Zaha playing OOP and on pens with good fixtures, I don't see the hit paying off short term

      1. caldracula
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah I’m not overly confident about it but the rest of my team is set up nicely and it’s a long term move that could possibly pay off in the short term too.

        Ta

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Convince me to be brave and go with Vardy & KDB amd keep the Spurs lads please 🙂

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        While the Spurs are performing they are staying.
        Look at this week chasing City, Vardy etc did not work?

    3. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Wow our teams are so similar.
      Only have Ziyech instead of Zaha and you have a much better bench. See above. My only concern is having no City for Burnley at home.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        You cannot have them all & City are not firing yet.
        Waiting confirmed news on Salah but plan was back for W12

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          And you are ok with no Vardy this week?

          1. g40steve
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            I think I have cover across the squad to cope ?

            Fulham came alive vs Everton second half?

            1. TheDragon
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 14 days ago

              I’m in same position as you and I too want to stick with spurs and ignore Vardy & city for now.

              City due to poor form and I don’t want Vardy other than the fear of him going huge this next GW vs Fulham

              I need to be brave

              1. g40steve
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 14 days ago

                Stick your plan that way you are in charge.
                How would you feel if you swapped out & Son & Kane & they rip it up while KDB & Vardy fail?

  9. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    This feels like a huge moment in the season.

    Potential players I could remove: Fernandes, Son, Kane, Robertson
    Potential players to bring in: Salah, KDB, Vardy, Cancelo

    Are any of them moves worth it for free let alone a -4?

    Part of me thinks we can wait on City as attack wise something isn’t right amd their stats are well down. I also don’t really want Vardy but Fulham at home this week with huge ownership would be scary.

    All thoughts welcome!

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      I would not get rid of Robertson

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Oh I really don’t want to but Robertson to Cancelo has the added bonus of freeing up cash

  10. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 14 days ago

    If Salah is cleared: Salah or KDB for the next few?

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      kdb and C him

    2. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Bruno will be captain this week

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Vardy for me

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Kdb for next 2. Then Salah switch

  11. ivantys
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Captain KDB or Sterling?

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        KDB

      2. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Kevin de Blank

      3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        If Sterling plays well midweek and subbed early, I like Sterling as the differential cap pick. More explosive option

    • farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      With 1FT what would you prioritise this week:

      1) Getting Salah back (will be for Mane, feels sideways but always want Salah over Mane long term, had both and took Salah out for Bruno)

      2) Werner to Vardy

      3) Roll the FT

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Mane is a good cap option this GW. Roll the FT

    • Hryszko
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Who is the Best midfielder to replace Podence with, budget of up to 5.5m?

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Soucek - but Jota for 1.1 more is obviously miles better

        1. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          Already own Salah, don't have the funds to bring in Jota without taking a -4 hit.. Gonna wait and see how Podence plays tonight before making any changes but most people have said Soucek.

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            There really is just nothing else at that price point.

          2. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            Plays 55-65 mins. Does some stepovers. Puts in a few nice crosses. Maybe has a blocked shot.

      2. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Stuart Armstrong probably

      3. lugs
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Lookman, Fulham are crap but at least he looks very dangerous every game

    • Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Who to bench next GW?

      A- Chilwell (TOT)
      B- Mitchell (NEW)

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        B easy

      Fun fact;

      Bissouma has 1 more point that KDB over the last EIGHT Gameweeks (both having missed 1 game)

      He's 7.1m cheaper 😉

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Captain Bissouma this week then?

          • 4 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          The conclusion from this isn’t that Bissouma is a good pick...

      2. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Done. I'm getting Bissouma for Rodriguez instead of KDB now.

      • 6 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      WC activated.
      I am trying to mesure the impact of the fear factor of non-owning any premium FW asset and the bias this could result of. I guess it's kind of a natural thing to be afraid of going into a game without the premium priced asset which is also very related to its ownership and the damage it coud bring if he has a haul on that particular game.

      But looking into specifics, I'd say only 50% of the premium priced assets has not lived up to their price tag so far. Among them, Sterling, Aubameyang, KDB, Werner, Rashford, TAA.

      Bar the blank first GW consideration, we should maybe remember how essential Aubameyang, TAA and KDB were in our first drafts and maybe consider this notion of a must-have is a moving one.

      Of course, the opposite is also true, some players have lived up to their price tag (Son, Kane, Bruno etc..)

      But the idea here is to try to level how biased or not we can be when it comes to big names. Kane VS Bamford. No match right?
      Well actually, with almost the same number of minutes played, Kane has a 7.8 points per Million ratio. Bamford has a 9.8 points per million ratio. Those are few £ we probably could spend somewhere else

        If u r afraid of not owning a player that's usually a good sign u should own them.

        Just post your team choices and let the people vote yes or no.

          you can't have them all and of course I don't like the idea of not having a Vardy against Fulham.

          But I think it is also a mistake to be driven by that fear and forget about the point per price approach.

            Forget about point per price and focus on form. You are just jumping from one player to the next, getting their points then onto the next.

      Have never owned DCL all season. That this was a mistake is not up for debate, sitting at 1.7M OR. The question now is whether to get him in this GW, knowing his points will do nothing for my rank, or get Vardy instead & gamble on him outscoring DCL with slightly better fixtures?

      1. Mr. O'Connell

        I haven't owned him either. Too late for us now.

          I disagree if you feel he's a captaincy option now and again

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 14 days ago

            fair point. I don't think he is given the fixtures of KDB/Salah/Bruno in the short-term tho.

        Gamble on Vardy who has the better fixture and lower ownership

    • CrouchDown

      Did either Watkins/Grealish have the ball in hand before the Pen was reversed?

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Watkins did

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 14 days ago

          His before he misses

      2. rnrd
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        people said watkins had taken the ball before pen was ruled out

      3. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        Yup Watkins had the ball at the pen spot during VAR

      Martinez
      Robertson, Chilwell, Micthell/Kilman
      Mane, Bruno, Son, Barkley, Lookman
      Kane, Jimenez

      Team is in transition from a woeful wildcard and early errors

      Thinking Barkley & Jimenez > Jota & DCL - 4

      Any other suggestions?

          Been stung by Foden. They're the type of punts I'm trying to avoid. Going for nailed assets. That's contradictory given Jota but I'm happy to give Jota a punt as I'd say he's as nailed as any City asset

              Think I'll do Mane to Salah for Wolves for an inevitable sideways disaster. In long run it's who I want though

            Well it’s certainly not a percentage play. Obviously it does have the possibility to huge upside but it’s too much of a punt for me

      Thoughts on this team? Any long term plans I should have in mind? 2.7 ITB. Transfer options:

      1) Michell to Cancelo
      2) Lamptey to cancelo
      3) other- suggestions?

      Martinez
      Chillwell / KWP / Lamptey
      Salah / Fernandes / Zaha / Grealish
      Kane / DCL / Wilson

      Button, Kilman, Michell, Stephens

    • Hryszko
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Right, I'm super stuck on what to do with this lot, got 1FT to use.. do I just roll the FT? Or maybe look at doing Podence > Armstrong/Soucek. I'm obviously quite top heavy and could possibly do Kane > Vardy to free up 1m, but not sure that's worth it and don't fancy going without any spurs cover..

      What's my best move here with 1FT and 0.2m itb?

      Martinez (Steer)
      Coufal - Cancelo - Dallas (Lamptey & Taylor)
      Salah - KDB - Zaha - Podence (Burke)
      DCL - Kane - Werner

    • THE KING CANTONA

      Which transfer(s) would you suggest?

      A) Jimenez to DCL (.2 short of Vardy transfer)
      B) Jimenez & Podence to DCL & Zaha (-4)
      C) Jimenez & Podence to Vardy & ASM (-4)
      D) Any other suggestions?

      1 FT 1.5 itb. Current team (3-4-3)
      Martinez | Forster
      Coufal | Konsa | Bellerin | *Mitchell* | *Lamptey*
      Bruno | Sterling | Grealish | *Podence* | Bissouma
      Kane | Werner | *Jimenez*

    • LIARS POKER
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 days ago

      Bissouma to Jota with my FT?

      Would mean benching Wilson and downgrading him at some point in the next couple of weeks

        • 2 Years
        3 months, 14 days ago

        I like it depending if you don't have other fires to put out in your team. Looks like you are upgrading your 5th mid bench fodder. He is on form, there are risks but I think it is worth taking.

    • The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Should Benjamin Mendy still be priced at 5.9m? If you're reading this and thinking who the hell is Mendy then answer no.

    • dbeck

      is there some upside in move on bruno to sterling to attack those two nice home games? (Then move Sterling to Salah afterwards)

      Feels dumb but I like the idea of triple city to try and get some big greens (already own KDB and Dias)
