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.

    Guys have I got this right?

    If I use my Free transfer this week and then go back in and FH the whole team. Will the player I brought in for this gameweek be available with my original team I have been building for the DGW.

    A really hope that makes sense!

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      No. Fh wipes all transfers. The team you have in 17 will be your team in 19.

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      After FH your team reverts to your GW17 team along with any price changes. Any moves you made after GW17 deadline will not count

        Cool cool. Thanks guys.

    Why can't it be the Lpool game in doubt- Cresswell and soucek to come in for Robertson and Salah would be delightful

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Ain’t it, never know - a lot can between now and Monday night

    2. Forever In Our Shadow

      Yes Me too. Would give me 80 pts which I would take all day long.

    Evening all. How's my FH team? Suggestions welcome. Cheers.

    Ederson
    Tierney - Dias - AWB
    Son - Bruno - Saka - Grealish - Sterling
    Kane - Wilson

    4m - Fernandez - Mitchell - Davis

      Standard.

        Haha I genuinely haven't looked on here so this was my own thoughts

    2. zdrojo187

      Ederson currently on quarantine?

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Can change him for Leno or darlow

        1. zdrojo187

          Leno 4.9

    Evening all

    Been planning for FH GW18 and TC (likely Salah) GW19 but having read the comments realise Wildcard could be the best option and BB GW19.

    Thoughts on the below - changes marked *:

    Current team:

    Martinez Steer*
    Coufal Lowton Dallas KWP* Lewis*
    Bruno KDB Salah* Son Rafinha*
    Kane Bamford Davis*

    Draft WC (

    Martinez Randolph* (hope he plays)
    Lowton Coufal Dias* Targett* Dallas
    Bruno KDB Son Rashford* Smith-Rowe*
    Kane Bamford Watkins*

    Will downgrade Kane to upgrade Rashford to Salah GW19.

    Cheers

      Does that mean a -4 for 19?

      1. Purse83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yes as only carry the 1 FT.

        Gives me 11 for GW18 and 13 DGW’s for GW19 Bench Boost (Son and Smith-Rowe single games)

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Waste of a WC if you already have most of them
      In place.

      1. Purse83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thanks appreciated.

        I did think this but questioned whether getting 11 out for GW18 and 13 double gameweekers for a GW19 bench boost had a massive upside?

        Can then just concentrate on downgrading bench funds and if COVID ever causes substantial lockdown the one chip the moderators appear to hand out is a Wildcard...

    3. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      If you plan to WC18, BB19 your awC should consist of players you are long term happy with, while the core of the team should be MCity, MUtd, Villa and Burnley. Probably total 7 players from these 4 teams if possible. MCity def double up (Stones + Dias) should be considered. It's OK to have only 9-10 players in BGW even though it's WC18 because you don't want too many "one week wonders" on your WC. Spurs (Son, Kane), Arsenal (Saka) and Wolves (Neto, Saiss) are the teams who might do well in both 18 and 19 despite SGW19. Wolves SGW19 vs West Brom seems like an underappreciated fixture to me. Raphinha, Saka, Soucek and Neto are all great GW19 enabler options which allow big hitters like Salah elsewhere in the team.

  5. The Frenchie
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Kane (Sheffield) or Vardy (Southampton & Chelsea) on DGW19?

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I like Vardy. Surely his expected points from 2 matches (assuming he plays both of course) are higher than Kane's single match

  6. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Why wasn't Saiss awarded the OG ?

    Just remembered actually that I captained Sterling at home to Brighton last season. It was GW4, he got 3 points. Aguero got 16. Could be a proper differential captain shout for FH18

    1. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      If I could guarantee he'd start I'd captain Agüero on FH this week.

      Is free hit DGW19 a bad idea?

      1. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Depends on a few things like your current lineup, but I don't see why it would be a bad idea

      2. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Before the Burnley Utd game was put into 18 that was my thought. Now not using any chip at all. Maybe TC 19. You can make a lovely dgw 11 though with the fh 19

        1. OLB

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Try and keep it. There’s enough dgw players to get a decent team out? Plus can load up early in 18 with city/Man U/villa players

      4. GoonSquad
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        it's what I am going to do since I have 10 BGW players. Plus, I had no interest in using 2 chips with Covid likely to continue to cause issues.

    6. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I suppose there must be worse strategies than just totalling switching off for the next 10 days and then expertly copying & pasting the Scout Picks as my GW18 FH team.

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        It's fair enough, they've been doing well recently

        1. The Hunt
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah, perhaps a winter break to recharge my batteries and have them earn their corn at the same time 😀

    7. Hryszko
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      This is my current team, have 0.3m itb and 1FT... can field 9 players with my current team, would you make any changes?

      Martinez
      Dier - Stones - Holding
      Bruno - KDB - Smith Rowe - Salah (won't play)
      DCL - Kane - Bamford (won't play)

      1. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Some people are suggesting a Salah-to-Son-and then back again swap. You could be bold and swap Salah for Sterling and run with it for GW19.
        I don't know that I would necessarily do either of those 2 things, but just giving you ideas

        1. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah, Salah > Sterling has been suggested, I do think it's a fairly good idea.. don't want to lose Salah so would get him straight back after!

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I’m carrying 2FT’s so I can do the Salah > Son > Salah hokey kokey

        Also am wondering about Sterling too, but doubt I’ll go there to be honest

      Man City Xtra have the total number of COVID cases at Citeh at EIGHT now... We already know 2, and while not officially confirmed 2 others apparently did Insta it... oofta!

        Another game postponed? Lovely. Hello Coufal off my bench if so. 😎

      2. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Any idea of the players?

          1. CroatianHammer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Ederson, Doyle, Walker, Jesus... and I have heard Torres as the fifth. Others have said Cancelo.

            1. I Must Break You
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Pep said there were 3 “important players” so doubt it’s anyone else besides Jesus, Walker, and Ederson that you would be worried about

              1. Eh, just one more thing ...
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                I think when he said that, Jesus and Walker were already confirmed ... so people believe it’s three additional players ... so a total of 5 ... and the other three names keep popping up (with Ederson confirming later that he was self isolating) ... but again, until it’s confirmed it’s ultimately guess work.

        Just postpone it. Give me my Coufal and Dier points

        1. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yes, I would very much like my Soucek 11 points off the bench

      5. The Hunt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Chelsea win to nil looks promising for my Chilwell, Zouma double up then!

      6. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        It’s been reported a few places, it’s Ederson, Walker, Jesus (I believe those three Confirmed) and Torres and Cancelo rumoured (to repeat, rumoured).

      FH18 draft no.2:

      DDG
      Dias Tierney Fernandez
      KDB(c) Bruno Son Zaha Saka
      Aguero Wilson
      3.7 ITB to upgrade some fodder in case of postponements etc.

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Why would you keep anything in the bank? Fernandes needs an major upgrade. Don’t waste your fh being clever.

      2. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Like the aguero pick! Think I'll go that way as well depending how he looks tomorrow.

      3. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Is there any way you can upgrade Wilson to Kane?

    10. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
      • 8 Years

      Would you transfer for free dcl to martial for gw 18 ?

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Seems reasonable.

      2. GoonSquad
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I fancy EVE to pick up pace again with Rich and James back. If you keep Martial for 19 DGW....then yes.

      3. Toby Lerone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Martial won't play two games in the double though

    11. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Just checking (it’s been a year since I used one!) - no practical difference when you press the FH button right? As your underlying team still gets all price changes and reverts afterwards negating any transfers made during the GW?

      Or.... is it better to press it now and you can take advantage within the FH of price changes to get in the players you want at the right time?

        Yes. Except once activated it can't be cancelled.

        Yes.

        Hmm... unsure if you can play the price rises once FH is activated. I've never activated it until the last moment.

          Thanks mate.

          Yeh I wasn’t sure re the price changes. Maybe they don’t count on FH in the same way that WC transfers don’t affect price changes?

        That sounds logical.

      Which option looks best for 18 and 19?

      A. Salah to Sterling in 18, then Sterling to Salah in 19 would mean keeping Son

      B. Salah to Rashford in 18 then Son to Salah in 19 would mean keeping Rashford

      Sorry for the bad wording

        B. I’m doing Salah to KDB 18 and then son to Salah 19.

        Can't help thinking there will be better options later this season with potensial dgw's and better use for the FH. If you can field around 9 players and not mess up the team for gw19

          That’s me. Maybe TC 19 if I fancy it. The season has many more twists and turns with fixtures yet. Shooting your load early isn’t good imo.

        Looks like Soucek is going to rise despite a blank - annoying!

          It’s been a surprise he hasn’t risen more this season.

          Annoying if you don’t own him, and quite frankly weird. What are people doing buying him this week?

            Judging by the amount of questions on here, it's people bringing him in for GW19 and then hitting their FH button 😉

        Why is FH better than using second wildcard?
        If fixtures for bgw involving are called off then FH waste
        If wc used then at least you will have planned for bgw and dgw and next set of fixtures
        Most will captain bruno or city player depending on who starts against chelsea
        Maybe I am not as accomplished fpl player compared to others but no one seems to be mentioning wc. Any thoughts welcomed

        After bissouma's stupid game and suspension. I will now have only 6 playing and 4 of them is against eachother. As i got el ghazi instead of saka i cant afford to get holding and Mitchell to get 2 extra players.
        Do i have to suck it up and use my FH or shall i perhaps do a -8 to get:
        saka, Mitchell and holding for el ghazi, dunne and Braithwaite.
        To have 8 players playing and also have future subs.
        Looks like a very good long term move, but next round is more or less ruined cause of the -8. Can forget the cup and every h2h league unless the moves actually payes off. Ideally would be to get Tierney for stones, but that seems like a worse move as ill have 7 playing then for a -8

        Wildcard idea

        Martinez / Meslier
        Cancelo / Dias / Stones / Chilwell / Coufal
        Salah / Bruno / Son / Maddison / Soucek
        Kane / Bamford / Brewster

        What do you think? Will mostly play in 4-4-2 except in DGW19

        1. Karhumies

          I would not dare triple MCity def when any match might get called off due to covid leaving you with only 2 other defenders.

          Brewster could be someone slightly more expensive.

        How's my FH team looking?

        Leno (Macey)
        Tierney Bailly Dias (Mitchell Bernardo)
        Bruno Son Zaha Mcginn (Burke)
        Aguero Martial Kane

          Just an observation but If you think Zaha will do anything why have double Arsenal defence or vice versa?
