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.

          They still have issues at the back.

          I think you're spot on

      Didn’t want to burn free transfer as playing FH next week- so took chance to bring in second keeper- Brought in McCarthy for Forster- not the best move if he is to miss some games....... may have to reverse but that would cost me additional hit!

          Posts earlier seem to suggest he is self isolating but nothing confirmed as far as I am aware

          1. Honourvolley
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Even if he is, should give enough time to be back for DGW, so wouldn't worry too much.

      2. Yes Ndidi

        19 is still a couple of weeks away. It's tight, and I wouldn't like to say which of them will play the double. I'm holding until the last minute.
        It'd be for a -4 if I've got to change it but a twice playing keeper should give me those points back.

      What keeper are GW18 free hitters going for? I’m on Darlow at the moment.

      1. highsguy
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Darlow (Sanchez) most likely

        • Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          If I were FHing, I'd go Darlow I think. Leno if I didn't have 3 outfield Arsenal players, but I would.

            • 9 Years

            Think I’ll have Tierney, Saka and Lacazette.

        • It’s gonna Ben Mee

          Leno

      2. EgyptianKing

        Do you think both Saka and Martial will get good gametime over the next GWs?

      3. Warby84

        1 month, 28 days ago

        I did Branthwaite/Brewster/De Bruyne to Holding/Vardy/Soucek -4

        Problem is that I only have 7 next week

        Martinez
        Dier Holding Dias Taylor** (Coufal)
        Son Fernandes (Salah Soucek Biss)
        Calvert-Lewis (Bamford Vardy)

        No free transfers or free hit but wanted to do, Taylor/Son to Dallas/DeBruyne for dbl.. Not sure whether to just leave it or take a -4?

            • 11 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            From the players:

            Ederson
            Torres
            Jesus
            Walker
            Doyle

            That is my guess

            1. Daniel - WC Active
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              +3 stuff. I think this is old news, not new news

          Ouch! Game could be in doubt?

          1. Daniel - WC Active
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            naaah, they are the same 8 as previously `IMO

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Probably enough to call it off though, didn’t they have less cases for the Everton game and that got called off

              1. Deulofail
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                I don't think that was about the number of players available. It's more about getting enough tests done to re-establish bubbles with confidence. I'm no expert though. New results expected tomorrow, so you'd think it's possible the results could potentially be in line with a scenario that allows the match to go ahead.

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Yeah you could be right, seems risky though...

          Makes it sound like one additional positive.

          1. Daniel - WC Active
            • 11 Years

            are you sure?

            1. FPL.team
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              It says they have had another positive case so sounds like one new one.

        Not activated yet, but tinkering with a FH lineup.

        Darlow
        Cancelo, Holding, AWB
        Son, KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Saka
        Aguero, Wilson
        (P-F; McGoldrick, Holgate, Mitchell)

      6. Daniel - WC Active

        1 month, 28 days ago

        Bottomed so repost:

        Will you BB if you need to make a 12pt hit in GW 19?

        The alternative is to have 2 great players on the bench.

        3rd defender and back up keeper will bring me to -12.

        I will do -4 anyway.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I’m going off the idea now. Thinking with all the call offs it’s too big a hit.

          1. Daniel - WC Active
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            that could be a thing, but sill time till GW 19, things will settle down.

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Short term I can see it getting worse

      7. Kanteisking
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Sorry if this a stupid question but I am second guessing myself. If I make a transfer now and then activate the free hit does that transfer remain for when the free hit team is undone?

        1. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Nope. You'll return to this week's team.

        2. Messiah Hazard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Nope. All transfers made in free hit week are removed, whether they are done before activating the chip or after.

          "When playing either a Wildcard or your Free Hit chip, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek."

          1. Kanteisking
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Sorry but does read as if you lose the double saved transfer if you habe earned it? Doesn’t refer to any actual trades you make?

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              You lose the transfer advantage.

            2. ZAMUNDA
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              If you have 2 FTs, and you use wildcard or free hit you'll eventually lose that extra FT.

              1. Kanteisking
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Yes but if I make a transfer does that transfer made get reverted back the original player if I then activate the free hit

                1. ZAMUNDA
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Yes exactly

                  Any transfer made when you play the FH chip, whether it is before or after you activete it, counts towards the FH.

          What value do you or anyone else on this site get from you asking this question, or from anyone's answer?

        RMFHT?
        Also how nailed is Darlow? dubravka being back makes me nervous to pick him.

        Leno
        Dias, Tierney, C.Clark
        Bruno, KDB, Son, Saka
        Kane, Martial, Wilson

        Mitchell and cheap trash on bench, 0.0 ITB.

        Salah dropping rapidly - City not rising fast enough.

        Still though... Tempting.

          Yeah im debating Salah to KdB/Sterling and bring Salah back GW 22

            It does actually look right on paper. Just the fear, as always.

          A lot will be FH transfers for Salah though, so may not fall in price

        Thoughts on this FH draft?

        Leno
        Dias, AWB, Fernandez, Holding
        KDB, Sterling, Fernandes, Son, Saka
        Kane

        Steer; Brewster, Mitchell, Davis.

        I think I'll delete my team is KDB is the new COVID case at Man City!

            This, although teams will be very similar

          Tierney Maguire Dias (Mitchell, fodder)

          Kane Wilson (Brewster)

          4 returns from 4. Many thanks and keep up the good work, my main man, Saka.

          Wouldn't mind City-Chelsea being called off. Soucek would replace KDB.

            Would you rather have Grealish with 2 games or Son with 1 game the Dgw?

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Grealish

            2. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Grealish on 4 yellows is a worry. Think I’d go son

              1. Long ago I drew a walrus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                To be fair his second fixture is away at City, not missing out on much there if he picks up a 5th yellow in the first fixture.

                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Depends if he’s planning to bring one in this week ahead of dgw. Still worth factoring in either way

                    At least then we know it and can plan for it (i.e. out he goes)

            3. It’s gonna Ben Mee

            Who would you rather have for FH GW18?

            A) Martial + Holding
            B) Laca + Tierney

            Thinking of selling salah from the blank gameweek for kdb. Then free hit dgw. I don't think salah will haul many times in January with fixtures. Is it madness to sell?

              Can always burn you selling salah

            I should Free Hit or I should certainly Free Hit with the following team? 😀

            Son
            Bruno

            Holding

              You have any FTs?

              With 2 moves that would be more than adequate for GW18 and save FH

                I have quantity but I dont rate the below 4 to give me any pts.
                I have one FT

                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  It’s right on the fence for me. 7 decent players for a FH after a -4 could be worth saving the FH for

            Lost on last page

            72 (-4) and up to 85k from 152k, with Salah, Robbo and Dias to play. KDB and Vardy could end all that of course!

            Thoughts on these options for first draft of FH for 18?
            A) DDG, Clark, Bryan, Sterling, KDB, Saka
            B) Darlow, Cancelo, Saiss, Sterling, Rashford, Saka
            C) Darlow, Clark, Bryan, KDB, Rashford, Grealish

            XXXX, Steer
            XXXX, Dias, XXXX, Holding, Mitchell
            XXXX, Son, XXXX, Bruno, XXXX
            Kane, Wilson, Brewster
