What impact can Amad Diallo have as an FPL asset at Manchester United?

Teenage sensation Amad Diallo is finally joining up with Manchester United after agreeing a £40million move in the summer.

After spending all season hoping Borussia Dortmund would lower their asking price for Jadon Sancho, Diallo was one of four players brought in by the Red Devils towards the end of the transfer window.

But anyone thinking of Diallo as a panic buy or a runner’s up prize to the England international could be in for a rude awakening.

The 18-year-old winger has been described by some as a “generational talent” and one of the best players in the world at his age.

He made such an impression at Atlanta in the first half of the season that boss Gian Piero Gasperini was eager to keep him for longer, only for Man United to insist on the move.

This would lead you to believe Diallo will feature straight away in the Man United first-team, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is so far keeping his cards close to his chest.

How the January transfer window and deadline day will affect FPL

“I’ve seen there’s been lots of expectations on Amad and rightly so, an exciting player with fantastic attributes we look forward to developing. It’s important we give him that time to settle in, if it’s in the under-23s or if he looks ready to go into the first team, I don’t know yet.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Prodigy

Not much data exists for us to be able to read much into Diallo’s game, having played just under an hour of senior team football in two appearances.

But already in this time, the youngster got himself onto the scoresheet in Atalanta’s 7-1 demolition of Udinese, cutting in from the right to score with his left foot.

Footage shared widely on social media shows Diallo loves to get the ball on the right hand side before dribbling inside and taking on the full-back.

As for his playing style, former teammates at Atalanta have gone as far as to describe him in the same breath as Lionel Messi.

“He plays like Messi. There are defenders in the first team that sometimes cannot stop him. To stop him in training we have to kick him.”

Papu Gomez

In a piece on The Athletic, Wyscout determine Diallo’s key attributes as excellent close control, a low centre of gravity and lightning quick acceleration.

And far from a one-trick-pony, special mention is given to his ability to go on the outside of the full-back and cross the ball well with his right foot.

According to Wyscout figures, Diallo has attempted 9.01 dribbles per 90 minutes, which is a high amount even for a winger.

The wonderkid is also not fouled very often, showing a hidden strength despite his diminutive appearance and a preference for riding tackles.

All of the above persuaded Solskjaer to part with a large amount for a player relatively untested at senior level, watching him personally in the UEFA Youth League where he terrorised Manchester City.

“We have followed Amad for a number of years and having watched him myself, I believe he is one of the most exciting young prospects in the game. Manchester United has a proud history of developing young players and everything is in place to enable Amad to reach his potential here. It will take him time to adapt but his speed, vision and fantastic dribbling ability will stand him in good stead to make the transition. He is a player with all of the raw attributes that are needed to be an important player for Manchester United in the years to come.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Prospects

Judging by Ole’s words above, it sounds like Diallo is going to be eased in this season, rather than jumping straight in to the first team set-up.

It may be worth noting another promising winger, Facundo Pellistri (£5.2m), signed in the summer, has yet to feature in the Premier League and has mainly been playing at an Under-23 level.

However, should Diallo impress in training and at the lower levels, the Red Devils’ struggles on the right hand side of their attack may force Solskjaer’s hand in introducing Diallo early.

Mason Greenwood (£7.1m) has struggled to replicate the form he showed last season on the right, and his game suggests he is more suited to a role through the middle.

Greenwood below-par and

Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), Dan James (£6.2m) and Juan Mata (£5.8m) have also been trialled with limited success down United’s right-hand side, with Ole even opting to ditch winger completely in some games and move to a midfield diamond.

But the diamond does not look like it will be a long-term solution, with Solskjaer stating on numerous occasions about how he wants his sides to play with pace and width.

And United hit a purple patch of form with Greenwood in the side last season, allowing him and Rashford to cut inside from wide and Anthony Martial (£8.8m) to play through the middle.

Diallo’s game looks like it suits this system perfectly and he could find himself gaining minutes sooner rather than later and in one of the league’s most potent attacks.

Value

Assuming Diallo comes in around the same value as Pellistri, this puts him in direct competition with a budget enablers such as Tomas Soucek (£5.2m) at West Ham and Raphinha (5.5m) of Leeds.

Without more to go on, it’s difficult to make a case to add Diallo to our teams until we get an idea of how Ole is going to incorporate him.

But should Diallo hit the ground running, he may ironically turn into last season’s Mason Greenwood, the man he is tipped to replace on the right-wing.

      B

      Wilson plays one game away at Arsenal (and still plays for that Newcastle team), Antonio has two home games vs Burnley and West Brom and now has no competition for place

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Antonio's competition is his hamstring.

        1. Dreaming of Irene
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          I'd still prefer to own Antonio with half a hammy v West Brom than continue to own and watch Wilson fall over to try and buy a foul on the rare occasions the ball comes near him

        2. popey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 5 hours ago

          pretty depressing face off between Antonio's Hamstring and Bruce's anti-football

  2. Kryptonite666

    4 days, 7 hours ago

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Coufal (KWP) (Dier)
    KDB Son Fernandes Soucek Grealish
    Bamford Kane (Wilson)

    A. Grealish to Ziyech (free)
    B. Kane to Vardy (free)
    C. Grealish + Kane to Salah and Antonio (-4)

    Any thoughts. Any other suggestions.

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      To be honest mate, I would just save your FT here. Alternatively, get Salah in as per C but it can backfire big time

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        But its DGW. YOLO

  3. PogChamp

    4 days, 7 hours ago

    So many FH played. A lot of people will likely end up with 5 players playing at some point in the next few weeks.

    1. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      And your point is?

      1. PogChamp
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        There's worse to come with covid

        1. Wild Rover
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          So people with only 4 or 5 players this week should have saved FH just in case a worse week happens? OK

          1. PogChamp
            • 9 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            I think it's better saved for rearranged fixtures... But that's just me.

              ya and those 4-5 games in the future might be pure muck. This week was the perfect time to use it if you had only 5 players. Great fixtures for top teams.

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      what can you do really a season like this is no point worrying and no point planning, just go gameweek by gameweek

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      I've ended up with 5 this week just about. Not the end of the world.

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      I had 5 players this week...

    5. Team Bobcat
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 6 hours ago

      Who knows. Eas as good a time as any to use it but hasnt paid off hugely so far as last nights results nullified potentoal gains. Only utd clean sheet was of any value. Play the game whatever way you feel. Make your oen decisions. Stay in your own lane..

    6. teneighty
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 6 hours ago

      5 players is what I'd have this week if I hadn't used FH.

  4. zeslinguer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 days, 7 hours ago

    Is no one TCing in the double? Surely there won't be a better chance this season than KDB vs Palace and Villa at home?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      I might do it.

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      Kane/Son in a double longer ahead would be my best bet

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      I’d prefer Kane or Son.

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      Probably not gonna do it. Not sure if Villa game will go ahead. Don't think the other games are slam dunks. Maybe Salah's.

    5. wasp3000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      TC yes. Salah or KDB dependent on tonight's game. If KDB is flying then it'll be hard not to go for him.

  5. Shark Team

    I don't expect Lee Sou to be postponed tbh but we will see

    1. drughi

        Friday

      2. Team Bobcat
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 6 hours ago

        There were more pressing decisions with villa then fulham reschedule. Villa giving them more of a headache now and a decision on that one should come first. Wait your turn 🙂 Day by day with this virus. No harm in delays. Keeps us on our toes.

      Is the Sheffield United vs Brighton game in GW33 in jeopardy of cancellation?

      Just trying to plan some transfers....

      1. elwardio
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        No. Hold Brewster and bissouma

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Might be the only match that GW, so would be advantage to those playing the long game....

      2. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        If anything, I am keeping my TC chip to play in on Brewster that gameweek! Tasty 3 points incoming

        1. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years

          He'll get 1 point even on a TC...

      3. Team Bobcat

        Thats easy. Forget about both those teams 🙂

    3. quayle99
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      McCarthy
      Robertson Bednerek Mee Dallas
      Salah KDB(c) Soucek Fernandes Son
      Bamford
      [Martinez Targett Adams Davis]

      g2g? All on double week apart from Son who I think could still get a good haul at Sheffield.

      1. elwardio
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Yes, it is fine to hold Son for this week and beyond. Whether they are all doubles depends on Leeds saints match going ahead and of course who knows if there could be other unforeseen cancellations

    4. OptimusBlack

      Non DGW players our injured

      If i sell calvert and mahrez to take kdb, wont have enough funds to have the 3rd striker

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Relying on Mahrez doesn't sound fun.

        1. huhhh
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          But doesnt seems like i got a choice unless i give up kane

            • 11 Years

            I'll probably be selling Kane and Grealish if that helps.

      When does the YC amnesty happen? Bruno getting to 4 bookings before a DGW with a first game against Liverpool is a recipe for a SGW...

        After a team plays 19 games. Even if he gets a YC against FUL, he'll be banned for SHU.

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

            • 5 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Don't think the game will be played anyway?

            I can do Welbeck to Antonio for exact money, so have a few options.

      Who are people looking at for a budget dgw defenders?

        Coufal

      2. jomikijiq

        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Think Coufal is the only one sub 5.0 worth having

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          And Stones

        Dawson

      4. Jässi
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Dallas and Ayling too

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          4 days, 7 hours ago

          They might only have one game

      5. Thewonderfulgame

        Dawson for CS and bullet header goals

      Haven't seen anyone forgetting to activate FH ending up with like -44... Any links? 😆

        Hopefully one of the Twitter rabble.

        1. Whazza

          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Saw an fpl podcaster forgot to play it but don't think he had made any moves, just a really poor team fielded

    11. Whazza

      What to do with triple Villa if Eve gets moved!? Try to keep with 4 potential DGWs?

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Bench them for City?

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          I must be going crazy talking to myself here

          1. popey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 5 hours ago

            I'm benching Jack and Watkins, lots of doubles to come, Newcastle home could be pretty soon too with both out of FA Cup.

            Martinez just having city away with all the DGW's feels like a bit of a kick in the teeth mind

      2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        I'll probably just bench them

      3. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Benching Grealish

      4. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Might bin off Grealish if that's the case. Been looking for an excuse for a while

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Scrap that, just seen their fixtures. I'll bench.

          1. Whazza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Glad you came to your senses, Grealish is an excellent pick

      5. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 6 hours ago

        Grealish has been excellent but I binned him last week for ESR to fund Kane.

        He's cheap so can bring back even if lost value.

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Yeah he'll prolly drop as well

    12. Jässi
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      I would need at least a -12 hit to get a full playing bench, would you do it or just skip BB now and try to plan better for next BB possibility?

      A) Forster, Johnson, Zaha, Brewster -> Johnstone, Ayling, Jorginho, Adams (-12)
      B) Zaha -> Foden for free and save BB for later
      C) Zaha -> Foden for free, save BB for later and use TC on KDB or Salah

      Current squad is:
      McCarthy - Forster*
      Robertson - Stones - Dallas - Balbuena - Johnson*
      KDB - Salah - Fernandes - Soucek - Zaha*
      Vardy - Bamford - Brewster*

      * = need to get rid of

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Skip the BB - minus 12 would negate most of the gain to be had

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        -12 just to bench boost is plain silly. Bringing in Foden is also a bad move

      3. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        BB on average is worth about 16 points a season. Doesn't make sense taking a -12.

        1. Krionos
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          I would think the average doesn't properly reflect an effective bench boost in a DGW, but yeah, -12 just to have (what I assume you mean) 3 double gameweekers is not advisable regardless...

      4. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        No point to BB if you need a -12

      5. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        I’ll trade you Johnstone for Forster

      6. gmando2011
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        with COVID on going i'm not sure how you can plan too much better

      7. grumpyman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        I'm in the same boat. Might just do the -12 to use it to get it out of the way, as planning in the lead up to this DGW has already cost me points and I don't want to go through the same experience later in the season.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Get it out of the way? Using BB isn't meant to be a punishment...

    13. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Anyone think Martial will be alright for the Liverpool game this weekend?

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        He did his hammy, think he's out m8...

      2. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 days, 6 hours ago

        Swap him for Ings

    14. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      Given that I have no City cover for the DGW19, getting KDB and Cancelo for a -8 is worth it, isn't it?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        coverage is a myth

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Excuse the poor choice of a word then 😀 Would you still get 2 City players for a -8 on a DGW

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            in place of who?

            1. Stormbringer22
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Grealish + Chilwell + DCL out for KDB + Cancelo + Fodder.

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                Chilwell has a DGW himself though. I'd do the the other 2 moves

                1. Stormbringer22
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  Not enough dosh for the other 2 moves, that's the issue. May "compromise" and get Sterling instead of KDB for a -4 with the other 2 moves. Or just leave it altogether probably.

                  1. Pukki Blinders
                    • 1 Year
                    4 days, 6 hours ago

                    hmm coin toss that one

                    1. Stormbringer22
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 1 Year
                      4 days, 6 hours ago

                      Appreciate the input mate. Think I may just say f**k it and not have any City. FPL suicide! 😀

      2. gmando2011
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        i make this mistake year on year, i'm refusing to do it this year - is it likley that KDB and Cancelo play both games?

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          KDB probably plays both, Cancelo - not so sure

      3. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 6 hours ago

        KDB, yes
        Cancelo is explosive but not 100% nailed on

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 6 hours ago

      4. Hiddenpaw
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 6 hours ago

        Yes do it. You’ll be annoyed if you don’t and they play both.

    15. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      DDG
      Dias Cancelo Coufal Tierney
      Salah De Bruyne Fernandes Soucek
      Lacazette Bamford

      Martinez Wilson Smith-Rowe Yedlin

      -8 Wilson/Yedlin to Dallas/Antonio and Bench boost with triple Arsenal.. Or just TC with no hits..

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        TC with no hits I would say

        1. Warby84
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Annoyingly on WC I had Antonio/Dallas in and playing 9 this week. so totally messed up, should have stuck with the original plan.. But it was SheffU and the thought of missing out on points.. Hindsight is a funny thing..

          1. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Hindsight is a wonderful thing indeed. Good luck mate, can always be worse! If anything, I think you are set up nicely

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        No hits imho

    16. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 7 hours ago

      Is Son + DCL --> KDB + Antonio (-4) a sensible move?

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years

        Very

      2. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Probably

      3. Coys96
        • 3 Years

        Yes

      4. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        If you have Kane, maybe...

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year

          Don't need any Spurs with Mourinho around

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            I'm not a Mou fan either and eventually he'll implode but atm can't argue with form and fixtures.

    17. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years

      So this is the DGW that Mane will make it up to his TCers.

      Anyone else joining me?

      Proof that 2 good weeks can change your season.

        Nice one mate, good job! I am currently on 8 green arrows from the last 9 GWks. My 1m rank rise was spread out over those, rather than 2 big jumps 🙂

        Well done mate. Never over until it's over!
        I had my best ever finish last season, but was outside the top 1mil at the half way mark and c.2mil after 10 weeks.

      Kane, Bamford

      Steer, Mitchell, Strujik, Brewster

      Think just TC and save the FT, even if games called off. GTG?

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Wouldn't tc KDB as one of their games is Villa. Could be postponed

      Would you BB Martinez, Bamford, Rodrigo, Dallas if they are all SGW? Trying to consider the likelihood of a better opportunity down the road vs. this remaining the best opp. Cheers all

        Don't think you'll have a stronger bench than that...

      Can anyone explain why Ollie Watkins is currently one of the fastest rising players on FPL Statistics?!

        People probably doing a DCL > Watkins without realising that Villa's DGW is at risk of being a SGW would be my guess

        Bamford is the most transferred in this round so far (76k)!

        Cheap. Has a double. Playing in a good team. DCL replacement. Wilson blank. Wilson single game week.

        Well that might be because most people aren’t concerned by the minutia of what’s going on in the football world.

        I suspect you already knew that though.

      Meslier Steer
      Dias Stones Robertson Zouma Coufal
      Salah Mane Bruno Grealish Soucek
      Bamford DCL Brewster
      Original plan was to do Steer+DCL to 2 players with DGW like Mendy&Antonio(is he fit?)
      Now Grealish, Meslier, Bamford might only have 1 game but assume they have 2 games is this good enough BB?

      Meslier Coufal Soucek Brewster?

        Don't BB imho, save it for GW26 with a WC in 24/25

        I still can't believe that Andy bought Chris Wood. Double gameweeks blinding him. Two of those games are against MUN and LIV. Absurd decision to buy him.
