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).

    Feels wrong (to me) taking out Kane/Son with their form the past few weeks.

    Salah / Bruno(C) / Son / Grealish
    Kane / DCL

    Save the FT? Have Cancelo as my only City coverage.

  2. GROBARI
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Is this a save? 1.7m ITB
      Martinez
      Chillwel Justin Semedo
      KDB Bruno Son Soucek
      DCL Vardy Bamford
      Bench: Steer Mitchell Dallas Mendy
      Thanks!

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah, not tempted to get Salah straight back though?

        1. GROBARI
            2 months, 3 days ago

            I will transfer out Semedo rather than transfer in Salah. I'll wait until GW12

        2. cigan
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Yea

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Bottomed

        What to do here?

        Martinez (Forster)
        Chilwell Cancelo Coufal(Lamptey)(Neco)
        KDB Fernandes Ziyech Grealish (Riedewald)
        Vardy(C) DCL Watkins

        1 FT and 2.1 ITB

        I'm 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

        1. Harry (C)ane
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I’d save

        2. cigan
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Good team, I'd save

      3. Please Answer Me
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Would you prioritise getting Salah in (if fit), Man City mid or Vardy?

        1. Lemongrab
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Salah

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

          Vardy
          Man C
          Salah

          That's my order.

          1. Gazza2000
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            This, but the other way around

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

              So I got the Man C correct? Always something.

        3. Harry (C)ane
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Salah

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

          Salah

      4. Lemongrab
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Fellow Foden owners what are you doing? Seems a logical swap to Jota but surely Pep gives him some game time given how anemic their attack has been. Would hate to sell and then see him start Vs Burnley and Fulham so I'm leaning towards 2 last chances...

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Wait for the CL game to see what side/performance City put out.

          I think Torres is the one to get though. Would feel super sideways to do Foden > Torres but if Torres is the one in favor, he's the one to get.

        2. claretparrot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          This is one of my biggest headaches at the moment. Every time I nearly settle on taking him out, this kind of thought stops me.
          If he's not going to get mins against those teams, he's going to be limited all season. So given he's not expensive I'm tempted to hold the next 1/2 weeks and then ditch for good if he doesn't play a good part.

          1. HVT
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Sold for Ziyech for a hit.
            He is/was a massive troll.

        3. TLF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I have the same dilemma and am likely to keep. Even 20 mins off the bench v a tired Burnley & Fulham isn't the worst thing. If he fails to start those games though he's gone.

          1. Boly Would
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            This is what I'm thinking too.

        4. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I'm probably swapping for Jota

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

          In current form, Jota can easily outscore Foden even if Foden starts every week and Jota doesn't

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

        If you had to sell, which one would you sacrifice?

        Son, Bruno or Kane?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Kane

        2. Harry (C)ane
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Kane IMO

        3. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Kane

        4. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Son record against Chels / Arse / Palace is not good at all. Kane record v.s these teams, very very good.

          Dont base it off last weeks points

        5. HVT
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          What’s the context?

          I presume:
          A Kane > Vardy (c)
          B Son/Bruno > KDB (c)/Salah?

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Right!

            1. HVT
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Who do you want to (C) so?

              1. Atimis
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Vardy vs Fulham looks too good to ignore

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

        Potential line up

        Martinez
        Chilwell Dias Coufal
        Salah Sterling Ziyech Grealish
        Vardy DCL Watkins

        Steele, Bissouma, Kilman, Lamptey

        1. caldracula
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Moves are Zaha + Saiss > Sterling + Dias -4

      7. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 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)

      8. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Salah (C) / Jrod / Ziyech / Grealish
        DCL / Kane / Bamford

        1ft - 2.6m itb
        What should I do?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Roll the FT or Kane to Vardy

      9. Az

        • 11 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Afternoon all.
        What do ya reckon my priority should be here?

        Martinez
        Chilwell Ayling Semedo
        Fernandes Grealish Ziyech Son
        Kane DCL Maupay

        Subs: Forster*, Lamptey*, Mitchell*, Soucek

        1.9 tb

        a) Kane -> Vardy
        b) Kane + Soucek -> KDB or Salah + 4.5 FWD (-4)
        c) Maupay to someone (Richarlison?)
        d) Mitchell -> Cancelo

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

          Maupay is your weakest link, but I think A has the most potential

          1. HVT
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            This but I’d nearly apply Mottys hit below

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

          Obvious screams out to me, Maupay + Son > Salah + anyone. But not for a -4. So I would wait for 2 FT

        3. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Kane & Son to KDB/Salah & Vardy -4

        4. JVALDEZ
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          a

        5. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Option B with Salah leaving you with DCL and Maupay front line looks so poor. Maupay is your weakest link but Vardy (C) looks good.

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

          Semedo -> Cancelo or Dias even if it's a -4

          Maupay -> whatever forward you like. Richarlison's pace could expose that Leeds high line. Could use that 1.9 ITB for other moves though and go for Watkins/Bamford instead.

          Would be very tempted to get a Vardy/KDB/Salah. All are fantastic options this GW IMO.

        7. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          You have a checklist, don't you? Go through it 😀

          For me, KdB is priority since he offers captaincy options for the next few weeks.

          Son + Maupay > KdB + Brewster/Davis would be what I'd do.

        8. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Son to Jota & Maupay to Vardy

        9. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I like C or maybe Soucek to Jota?

        10. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Why is an expert like AZ asking for our opinions lol

          B for me pays off most beyond this week

          1. Az
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years

            Expert... I wish.

        11. beetlejuice
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          All but b sounds solid
          I would also consider removing Semedo instead of Mitchell

      10. CroatianHammer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        GW10 Bus Team:

        Ryan (many saves please)
        Cresswell, Justin, Dunne*
        Zaha, Bruno, Souček, KdB, Sterling (C)
        Kane, Antonio

        Martinez, Brewster, Vestergaard, Lamptey

        * I have a FT, a few pennies in the bank. Dunne could be James, could be Kilman... or even Toffee Keane. Originally the plan was to play Lamptey, and trust in BHA at home, but that red card has forced my hand somewhat. I can bank the FT too, and let Vestergaard pick up 1, 2, even 5 points.

      11. The Sociologist
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Up to Zaha to save my GW. It’s not going well is it?

      12. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Thoughts on Bruno > KDB?
        I've constantly told myself to resist City until they actually hit form, but those fixtures are so tough to ignore. As for Bruno, I feel lucky as an owner at the end of pretty much every GW and feel like it has to stop soon!?

        1. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Sideways, get Bruno + KDB

      13. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Which one would you own this week?

        A) Salah (bha)
        B) KDB (BUR)

        If A will get KDB in next week for Bruno.
        If B will get Salah in GW12 for Bruno.

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

          A. He'll be relatively fresh (even if playing some part in UCL) and has shown form this season which can't be said for KDB even if the fixture is nicer on paper

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Cheers mate!

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          KdB. He's a captaincy option for more games coming up.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            I'm not convinced he's better than Vardy or Salah or Bruno this week but yes he's the best option for next week.

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Mmm fair. But those City games are too good to ignore.

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                I know it's tricky ideally I want both KDB & Salah in my team for GW11 & 12 captaincy. Just a matter of deciding which one this week.

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

          A

            All eyes on City's midweek game. Need to see a good performance but a rested Salah for this weekend is also very tempting. I'm definitely having both latest by GW12 though.

        Only for the next 2 who would you rather have? Ignore price
        A) Salah(if fit)
        B) Bruno

          Talk is Saiss

        2. Black Knights
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Apparently Saiss and Dendoncker haven't been seen in training photos, and Saiss had two teammates test positive with Morocco, so...

      17. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Help greatly appreciated! Which do you prefer?

        A) Ziyech, 4.6D & 4.6D
        B) Grealish, Zouma & 4.6D
        C) Jota, Zouma & Cancelo

        Torn between A and C - would like to keep Ziyech but C is most balanced but need Jota to consistently start given weak bench.

        Rest of Team:

        Martinez
        Chilwell, X, X
        Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Son, X
        DCL, Bamford

        (Steer, Kilman, Brewster, Mitchell)

        Cheers!

        Do you think Bruno is worth the extra over Son even when fixtures turn?

          Difficult to say, just get both, great value.

        Do I start Watkins (have Grealish and Martinez) or Foden?

        Leaning towards Foden.......

        What are the odds of Saiss playing today? I wouldn't mind getting +6 from Ayling first sub

        Feels like there are five strong captain players at the moment:
        - Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Kane, Vardy

        There is a level below that where it is a bit more risky, but they can return:
        - Mane, Sterling, Rashford, Son, Werner

        Then you get to a group of players who are more variable and you are probably sweating because you haven't captained one of the above:
        - DCL, Grealish, Ziyech, Zaha, Ings, Aubameyang, Richarlison

        Don't think you can get all the five strong captain players and it isn't a efficient use of budget. My thought at the moment is that you choose 2 or 3 and rotate the captaincy around them. With Fulham and WBA being so poor, a combo of Vardy, Salah, KDB looks strong:

        GW10: Vardy(c) vs FUL
        GW11: KDB(c) vs FUL
        GW12: Salah(c) vs ful
        GW13: KDB(c) vs WBA
        GW14: ?????
        GW15: Salah(c) vs WBA

        1. HVT

          Good post

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

          Fully agree. KDB/Salah can cover captaincy very well!

        3. Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Salah Brighton or Vardy FUL?

          1. diesel001
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Does Salah play vs BHA?

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

          GW14 is Salah too i think. GW13 is Bruno for me personally. Then 15 is either KDB or Ings. I agree with GW10,11,12 captaincies.

        5. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          If Salah get some mins in the UCL midweek, Salah can be GW10 cap and it's one transfer less to think about

        6. Major League Shocker

          2 months, 3 days ago

          I think you're right. With many managers now using nearly all their transfers on heavy hitters, a policy of set-and-forget 3 heavy hitters for a long run of fixtures could be a shrewd differential. Then you could actually use transfers elsewhere in your team instead of having to spend them all on captains.

          Bruno stands out in GW14 to me. I know Leeds aren't at the level of WBA and Fulham but they give away a LOT of chances, around the same as the other two, and they are vulnerable to teams that counter-attack (conceded 7 to palace & leicester in recent weeks)

        What to do, time to ship Kane for Vardy or Kun? Wilson is an issue too...
        £1.4 ITB

        Martinez (Button)
        Bellerin / Cresswell / Chilwell (Kilman / Mitchell)
        Jrod / Bruno / Grealish / Salah (Bissouma)
        Kane / DCL / Wilson

      25. fpork
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Got 2FT and 3.3 ITB. Still not sure what to do here:
        Martínez (Martin)
        Chilwell, Walker-Peters, Robertson (Lamptey) (Branthwaite)
        De Bruyne, Son, Grealish, Zaha (Soucek)
        Brewster, Kane, Calvert-Lewin

        Before this GW my plans were to move Robertson and Zaha/Son to Cancelo and Salah, but now I want to keep Robertson and Son.

        Any ideas?

      26. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Should I be worried about not owning Bruno if I'm not going to captain him anytime soon?

        Considering losing him to get Salah if fit but it just feels wrong and sideways

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Think it’s a wait and see with Salah, don’t see the urgency to bring him in until we see his fitness post covid

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Thing is even if I save my FT I'm so happy with my WC team that I might end up burning my FT or something next week, so tempted to just do it now so that can focus on future moves.
            I agree though it's not needed to rush it

        2. Is Stones nailed?
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          It's not sideways but if it feels wrong then don't do it.

        3. HVT
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I think that’s a fair way to look at it.

          Diesel above has a good post potentially identifying captains over the next few weeks.

          GW10: Vardy(c) vs FUL
          GW11: KDB(c) vs FUL
          GW12: Salah(c) vs ful
          GW13: KDB(c) vs WBA
          GW14: ?????
          GW15: Salah(c) vs WBA

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

            This my captaincies till gw15.
            GW10: Vardy
            GW11: KDB
            GW12: Salah
            GW13: Bruno
            GW14: Salah
            GW15: KDB or Ings
            And its doable by simply transfering premiums

        4. ClassiX
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Bruno for GW10, Salah for GW11-17, Bruno for GW18 is my long-term ideal plan for that position at the moment.

            No idea, would have to be Bruno, then downgrade someone else which isn't ideal.

              I think it would have to be Son if anyone, and that would be a pricey upgrade. Think I'd hold for now
