Fernandes scores again as new Pogba role pushes Rashford to the right

Man United 2-1 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Anthony Martial (£8.7m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.2m) | Bertrand Traoré (£5.9m)
  • Assists: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m), Paul Pogba (£7.7m) | Jack Grealish (£7.7m)
  • Bonus points: Fernandes x3, Grealish x2, Wan-Bissaka x1

PAY THE PENALTY

Manchester United’s knack for winning penalties continues to underpin Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.2m) Fantasy Premier League credentials ahead of their appealing run of fixtures.

The Portuguese international, now owned by 50.4% of managers worldwide, despatched his fifth spot-kick of the campaign in a 2-1 win over Aston Villa, the sixth he had taken over the first 17 Gameweeks.

Only Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) has shouldered the responsibility of more penalties (seven) in the Premier League than Fernandes (six) so far. Beyond that, since Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s first Premier League match in charge of Manchester United (December 2018), his side had been awarded (27) and scored (21) the most penalties.

“(Fernandes) wants to take the penalties and that’s the first thing. He is never afraid of missing. He has been very safe and is a confident man on the spot.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

As a result, Manchester United’s established penchant for winning spot-kicks could arguably play a part in captaincy decisions over the next two Gameweeks – when the Red Devils play three times.

More importantly, two of their next three opponents have been particularly obliging in the box this season. Liverpool and Fulham, who Manchester United face in Double Gameweek 19 have both given up five penalties in 2020/21, the second-most behind only Leeds (six) at the time of writing.

Since Arsenal’s 1-0 win at Old Trafford in Gameweek 7, Solskjaer’s men have gone undefeated and won eight of their last 10 league matches – setting up for a very interesting encounter at Anfield later this month…

RASH DECISIONS

A new role for Paul Pogba (£7.7m) against Aston Villa pushed Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) into a relatively unfamiliar role on Friday night, perhaps throwing a spanner into the works of preparations for Blank Gameweek 18 and Double Gameweek 19.

Solskjaer gave the Frenchman a chance to operate on the left-hand side of attacking midfield, where Rashford has produced some of his best work since Project Restart.

Having spent much of 2020 sitting in the holding midfield pair at Manchester United, Pogba was hugely impressive in a wider and more advanced position. He had more shots in the box than anyone on the pitch, attempted more passes than any other colleague (48) and won the penalty which led to victory.

“He’s getting better and better. I think he played well today. They are a physical side and Paul’s one of these guys who can get hold of it for us.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Pogba is sure to fancy his chances of holding onto the left-wing position for next week’s trip to Burnley, which could bring him into consideration for those building squads around the Blank and Double Gameweeks.

Of course, we also have to assess the impact on Rashford who went an eighth home Premier League match from his last nine without a goal.

In an unfamiliar role on the right-hand side of the attack, the Englishman was arguably the least impressive of Manchester United’s front four against Aston Villa, closely marked by Matt Targett (£4.6m) and somewhat selfish in key moments too.

It must be remembered that Rashford has been considerably more effective away from home anyway, which bodes well in light of Manchester United’s next three matches all taking place on the road.

In nine Premier League outings at Old Trafford this season, the 23-year-old has just one attacking return. In just six away matches, Rashford has found the net six times and added four assists.

Anthony Martial (£8.7m) has less of an excuse for his home form, considering he has just one league goal at Old Trafford and one on the road too.

He seems a much less viable asset for the Blank and Double Gameweek based on his starting credentials anyway. Edinson Cavani (£7.8m) was handed a three-match ban by the FA, but two of those will be spent on cup competitions. Gameweek 17 was the only league match the Uruguayan was due to miss and he will be available for the Gameweek 18 trip to Burnley.

GREAL DEAL

Just as Fantasy managers were starting to lose faith with him, Jack Grealish (£7.7m) posted a seven-point score in another impressive performance for Aston Villa.

Over the five matches previous to Gameweek 17, the midfield maestro was outscored by 42 points to 19 by colleague Anwar El Ghazi (£5.8m).

Grealish has, of course, been unfortunate not to pick up more assists in that time thanks to wayward finishing from Ollie Watkins (£6.1m).

As is often the case in FPL, the good fortune swung back around at Old Trafford. Grealish capitalised from a lapse in concentration from Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m) to cross into the box in the second half.

The ball came through a crowd of bodies yet managed to go untouched by Douglas Luiz (£4.9m) before Bertrand Traoré (£5.9m) bundled it home.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Bailly, Wan-Bissaka; Fred (Tuanzebe 90+4′), McTominay (Matić 65′); Pogba, B Fernandes (D James 87′), Rashford; Martial.

Aston Villa XI (4-2-3-1): Martínez; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Cash; McGinn, D Luiz; El Ghazi (Davis 84′), Grealish, B Traoré (J Ramsey 79′); Watkins.

    Hi guys, any opinions on whos better if price is not an issue. SAKA OR SMITH ROWE?

    1. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Maybe saka

    2. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Saka is a better player and more nailed starter. If it’s for FH then you might get burned, but expect him to do plenty better over the next few games

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        No other no.10s at Arsenal though?

        1. Going Home
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          They have different ways of setting up, depending on how Arteta uses the players he has. Just my opinion though

  2. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Would you FH this?

    Martinez
    Dias Stones
    KDB Bruno Son
    DCL

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      No way. 7 quality players

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Good. How many are you planning to go with?

        1. George Agdgdgwngo
          • 12 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          7 maybe z8 with Brewster as a 9th. But it’s quality over quantity

    2. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Nope

    3. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Yes

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      depends on the rest of your team really ... bringing in players that have a fixture in 18 and a double in 19 means an extra game over your players that blank.

      Some teams that have a fixture in 18 have a very good single fixture in 19 without the risk of rotation, Kane for example

  3. Going Home
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    What if I told you that you could use £10.3m of your FH budget bringing in a striker who has played 136 minutes in the league this season? He has scored a grand total of zero goals, and has no assists. Oh, and he has a history of injuries. You’d think I was mental, right?

    So why is Aguero popping up in so many “set up for BGW18” posts?

    1. The Overthinker
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Guilty. He is in my team atm. Will check how he looks against Chelsea.
      Depending on that will take a decision.

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Nostalgia...

    3. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Because he's aguero

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      because City have lots of players out with Covid and Kun should start ?

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        18 is in 10 days. Covid guys will likely be back. If Aguero doesnt start today he is a no go for FH18 imho

      2. Going Home
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        But there’s no real basis for expecting him to last 30 mins, let alone score a hatful. If he was a £6m punt then maybe, but he prices you out of so many options

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          it’s a punt for sure and that is the beauty of the FH, you can chuck in some one like him because you have the money spare ... he who dares ... 🙂

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Why is there no basis? He was brought on on Boxing Day, so he’s not a risk, he would presumably have started the last game. If be plays 90 mins tomorrow he’s still the best in the league with enablers all around him.

  4. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Amazing the sorts of FH teams we can make without the overpriced Pool assets...

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Overpriced for a reason tho. Consistent year in year out

  5. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    What's your latest GW 18 and 19 plans? Mine is

    18: Salah to KDB
    19: KDB to Salah, or Son to Salah & DCL to Decordova-Reid (-4)

    1. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      FH in 18 (only have 5 players with a fixture)

      TC or no chip in GW19 as I’m not sure I want rid of Kane/Son

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Premier hot potato bound to end in tears. One injury or postponement and your plan is done

      1. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Saving my FT after fac fixtures. No problem

    3. The Overthinker
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      GW 18 FH, GW19 BB

    4. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      What about chips?

      1. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Maybe TC in 19. That's all

        1. George Agdgdgwngo
          • 12 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Yeah, I refuse to use FH. Possibly one of the most valuable cards there is

  6. The Overthinker
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    On FH, which pair would you select

    A) Lacazette and Aguero
    B) DCL and Kane

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      A

    2. h3nh3n
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I’m not a fan of DCL recently, but I think B

      What your FH team looking like?

      1. The Overthinker
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Leno
        Bailly Dias Tierney (Yedlin, Mitchell)
        Grealish Fernandes Son KDB (Burke)
        Wilson Lacazette Aguero

        Nothing ITB.

    3. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Kane and Wilson and use the £1m+ elsewhere?

      1. The Overthinker
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Can't afford it the way my team is set

        Leno
        Bailly Dias Tierney (Yedlin, Mitchell)
        Grealish Fernandes Son KDB (Burke)
        Wilson Lacazette Aguero

        Nothing ITB.

        Aguero to kane is what I want to do. But short of .7

        1. The Overthinker
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Yedlin to 3.9 gives me .4, but still .3 short of

          Lacazette Kane Wilson

          1. The Overthinker
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            .1 short if I do kdb to sterling xD

      2. The Overthinker
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Problem solved.
        Leno to whoever starts at the back for city allows me to have kdb and Kane

    4. NABIL -OR #38 2014/15
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      B

  7. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    I need Dias, Justin or Robbo to be rested to get Holdings points off the bench. I've got no chance, have I?!

    1. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Best hope is that Dias is one of the Man City five

      1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        That's what I was thinking, but it feels a bit wrong hoping that someone has COVID

  8. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Think I have a plan. Let me know if u spot anything which could be improved.

    Can get this for -4. Would u Use FH chip or save it?

    Martinez

    Holding Maguire Mitchell Lewis

  10. Tonyawesome69

    Is Balbuena still a good option for DGW19 or should we find a replacement?

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      No

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years

      Start searching, he will likely only play 1 game if lucky

  11. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    Can you imaging going into GW 18 without both Kane & Son or both Bruno & Rashford or both KDB & ... umm ... Dias ?? 🙂

    1. Hattrick Harry
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Yes don’t need them in gw18

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        don’t need them, but would you have them ? I would for sure 😉

        Son & Kane will burn people if they haul in a normal game week, but there is no Salah captain safe harbour in 18 😉

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Nope, my first FH draft covers your comment

      0.6itb
      Darlow
      Holding Dias Cancelo
      KDB Bruno Saka Son Rashford
      Kane Wilson
      (Martin Saiss Davis Mitchell)

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        nice ... will smash the average by 20 or 30 points 😉

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Only expecting decent points from KDB to be honest. Burnley won’t open up for United, Villa are decent enough to beat Spurs.

      1. The Overthinker
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Also adding to it, villa have been good defensively in last 3-4 matches

    4. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I can see AVL winning AVLTOT. Son owner.

  12. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    In their last 12 meetings, Arsenal have only kept 1 CS against Palace...

    Still want Arsenal defenders on FH?

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      No

    2. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      I’d still like the winger who gets CS points

      Fabianski

      Cancelo - Dias - Cresswell

      KDB - Salah - Bruno - Raphinha

      Vardy - Adams - Bamford

  14. h3nh3n

        Can do Bissouma -> Smith Rowe or Salah -> KDB if I need to, yeah.

          I would be looking at players that have a game in 18 and a double in 19 if possible,

          Utd defender or keeper ?
          Rashford & KDB?

          -8 can get you 3 players that have a single & double game week 🙂

            Yep, definitely could mate. But if I don't FH18, I'm fairly sure I'll be FH19 to exploit the DGW.

              I am looking at TC or BB in 19 now, and saving my FH.

              I really like the fixtures for Wolves Spurs & Arsenal in 19 and don’t need more than 7 or 8 dgw players to make a bench boost 15 look good.

    Would you do DCL to a budget forward this GW or sell next GW?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      why would you sell DCL when he plays in 18 ?

    Can I survice 18 without using FH:

    Martinez
    Holding Mitchell Ampadu
    Bruno Son KDB
    Kane Davis(1 pointer)

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Bold to assume Davis gets even 1 point

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Without it? 8 starters ok?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          Take a hit and get 10?

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            Have set it up to play 10 DGWers. Will have to take few more hits to get them back. -8 for an extra 2 players in 18 might not work that well.

      Only my opinion but looking at the free hit teams people are posting i can't see them getting many more points than you. You have all the heavy hitters.

    Who'll start in goal for Manchester City?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Jack Steffen

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Steffan

    3. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Seems like Randolph

      1. Hot Fuzz

        Oops wrong team hahaha

  22. The 12th Man
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 24 days ago

    My first attempt at a FH team.

    Leno
    Stones,Coleman,Clark
    Sterling,Fernandes,Son,Saka
    Kane,Aguero,Martial

    Steer,Smith-Rowe,Mitchell,Burn.

    Aguero worth it for a one week punt?

    1. The Overthinker
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 24 days ago

      Yup. I am all in for Aguero

      1. The 12th Man
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        The rest look ok?
        Defence suffers but 4 possible clean sheets.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 24 days ago

          I feel like there is an opportunity to differentiate more compared to what non FHers will have - as in just get one of the Spurs guys. Villa are good! Can see them beating Spurs, and/or restricting them to 1 goal scored.

          I think Id rather try sth like

          KDB Sterling Bruno Zaha (or Grealish) Saka
          Aguero Martial Lacazette

          1. Pieterke30
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            Or Son/Kane instead of Aguero he doesnt play 80ish minutes today vs Chelsea

            • 5 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            Lol @me, have to remove one of those of course, cant start 8 attackers

          3. The 12th Man
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            Yeh sound reasoning.might just have one Spurs player.
            I like that attack.

    City is 13:1 in the last 3 games against Brighton... triple City essential

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Reminds me of City's record vs West Ham

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 24 days ago

        Which isn’t that great tbf

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          23-3 in the last 8 isn't great? Lmao

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 24 days ago

            Last 8? a bit far back mate. They had a 2-0 and 1-0 in the last 4 meetings

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 24 days ago

              They also had a 5-0 and a 4-0 in the last 5

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 24 days ago

                West Ham squad now vs 1-2 years ago is very different. Brighton still a mediocre bottom side

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  8 months, 24 days ago

                  City's offense now vs 1-2 years ago is also very different.

                  1. Pukki Blinders
                    • 2 Years
                    8 months, 24 days ago

                    Same set of players bar David Silva

                      8 months, 24 days ago

                      Yet significantly worse offensive numbers. They may well thrash Brighton but games that occurred 1-2 years ago under a different situation with a free scoring City have no relevance to this match, it's complete nonsense to suggest otherwise - your trademark 😉

    2. Hot Fuzz

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years

        1. Hot Fuzz

          Haha very funny, how are you doing anyway pukki?
