Cavani leads the line for Man United in the Blank Gameweek

Edinson Cavani (£7.8m) has been chosen to lead the line for Manchester United in Blank Gameweek 18, with Paul Pogba (£7.7m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) featuring in an attacking line-up.

Either side of Cavani will be Anthony Martial (£8.8m) and the in-form Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), with Nemanja Matic (£4.8m) chosen to anchor the midfield.

Eric Bailly (£4.9m) now looks to have made the starting position his own, as he partners Harry Maguire (£5.4m) in the centre of defence, with Luke Shaw (£4.8m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m) at full back.

David De Gea (£5.3m) returns in goal, after Dean Henderson (£5.2m) deputised for the Spaniard in the cup.

Burnley field their standard 4-4-2 formation with Sean Dyche hoping to stay compact against Man United.

The familiar front two of Chris Wood (£6.2m) and Ashley Barnes (£6.0m) start up top, with Dwight McNeil (£5.7m) losing his place to Johann Gudmundsson (£5.4m) and Robbie Brady (£5.0m) starting on the left.

Ashley Westwood (£5.3m) and Josh Brownhill (£4.9m) continue in the centre of midfield

Ben Mee (£4.9m) and James Tarkowski (£5.3m) partner at centre-back, with Matt Lowton (£4.4m) and Erik Pieters (£4.3m) at full-back.

Nick Pope (£5.4m) hopes to continue his impressive form in goal.

With injury keeping out Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m), Everton look to be deploying Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) in an unfamiliar false nine role.

They’re also lining up in an unfamiliar back five, with Yerry Mina (£5.6m), Michael Keane (£5.1m) and Ben Godfrey (£5.0m) at centre-half.

Lucas Digne (£6.0m) returns to the side at left wing-back, with Mason Holgate (£4.8m) chosen to operate on the opposite flank.

Aiding Sigurdsson in attack will be James Rodriguez (£7.7m) and Alex Iwobi (£5.9m).

Tom Davies (£5.2m) and Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.3m) will start in midfield.

Adama Traore (£6.1m) is completely missing from the Wolves attack which features Fabio Silva (£5.2m), Pedro Neto (£6.0m) and Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.9m) fresh from returning from loan.

Joao Moutinho (£5.2m) looks to be taking up a more advanced role behind the attacker, with Ruben Neves (£5.2m) and Leander Dendoncker (£4.7m) in behind.

Roman Saiss (£5.1m) and Conor Coady (4.9m) start in the heart of the Wolves defence, flanked by Rayan Ait Nouri (£5.0m) and Nelson Semedo (£5.4m).

The ever-present Rui Patricio (£5.4m) continues in goal for Wolves.

Man Utd XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Bailly, Shaw; Matic, Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial; Cavani


Burnley XI: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, Brady; Barnes, Wood

Everton XI: Pickford, Holgate, Mina, Keane, Godfrey, Digne; Doucoure, Davies, Sigurdsson, Iwobi; James

Wolves XI: Patricio: Semedo, Coady, Saiss, Ait-Nouri, Neves, Dendoncker, Neto, Moutinho, Gibbs White, Silva

        Everton score their winner after Richarlison comes on. Really is vital to their hopes.

          He had no part in the goal.

        Can anyone help please? I’m useless with selling value of players, DCL selling value is 7.5 for me, he’s currently 7.8, if he drops tonight will I lose 0.1? Cheers

          What did you buy him for?

          1. Bring the Cavalry
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 19 hours ago

            I have no idea bought him ages ago, is that the only way to find out?

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years

          Yes you bought him at 7.2 so will lose 0.1

          1. Bring the Cavalry
            • 4 Years

            Might have paid 7.3m ....

        3. Bram
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 19 hours ago

          If you paid 7.2 you will lose out. If you paid 7.3 you won't. Either could be the case.

          Go to transafer - list view (just above the goal) on the website to check paid price.

          1. Bring the Cavalry
            • 4 Years

            Cheers mate didn’t know you could do that, sadly paid 7.2.

        Mee has taken ridiculous damage this game, feels this way every week for the Burnley defenders.

        If United don’t win the league this season with the endless luck and FA fully behind them it would be some collapse.

              In five-and-a-half years, Liverpool have earned a total of 30 penalties. In the past two-and-a-half seasons, Manchester United have been awarded 32 spot-kicks.
