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.

    Ryan Fraser is now the shortest player to receive a red card in the Premier League, replacing Tariq Lamptey.

        I think Zigic, not sure though.

      Is he?, he looks a tad taller

    Cons of gambling with TC Salah?

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

      Poor form as a team and Pool have had trouble breaking down buses, which is what Burnley will do at Anfield.

      1. NateDogsCats
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          This is it pretty succinctly. Biggest worry for me alongside this would be Liverpool being pretty shot shy lately too

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

          WBA 1-1 & Newcastle 0-0 would have looked like the perfect TC opportunity if in a DGW

          Salah with a DGW will always be a good option, just may not be the best opportunity to use chip the season

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

        the low ceiling

      3. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Not on form, not amazing dgw fixtures, better opportunities in later DGWs

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

        No scored in last 3 matches I think so form

          You get 12 points and become part of FFS folklore along with the Andy (TC)arroll victims, the Leroy Sane regretters and the poor souls who were lured in by the Kane/Swansea/Jamie Jackson debacle.

            And don't forget when Mane limped off like a little fragile sparrow after about 10 minutes of the first game of a tasty double last year. I still weep over that.

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

              Remember this well - was in the pub with work colleagues, one other guy plays FPL, He capped Salah to my Mane.

              Thought he was joking with me until i checked scores at HT

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

        Form and I'm sure there will be better opportunities later in the season. Even in 19 KDB looks a better pick, better form and fixtures.

      6. sunzip14
        • 3 Years

        Gambling is prohibited by Islam 😉 You could be punished 😛

        1. sunzip14

          or rather he could be punished

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years

      Currently have the armband on Cresswell... don't have KDB yet, however

      1. NateDogsCats
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Can't say I'm not tempted by this

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

          Can see a Cresswell corner finding the head of the big tree that is Soucek, hopefully more than once!

          1. Coys96
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            Or a direct free kick goal! top right corner

      2. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Could there be an upside to this?

        Rashford, Kane -> Sterling, Vardy

        1. Coys96
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Certainly, but I would definitely keep Rashford.

          1. Slitherene
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            Have Bruno & Maguire, their fixtures for the double don't look that easy on paper. Still?

            1. Coys96
              • 3 Years
              4 days, 7 hours ago

              Still would keep

              1. Slitherene
                • 2 Years
                4 days, 7 hours ago

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Do you have Son as well?
          Also, I’d see how Sterling looks today. But I agree there is certainly upside to those moves.

          1. Slitherene
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            Don't have Son, have KdB & Jesus as the other premiums.

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

              I’d keep Rash and Kane

              1. Slitherene

            Exactly 5 times, if it matters to you.

            How many times have you replied?

              This matters to you?

              5 times for a same question is a kind of wastage of internet resources.

        Best midfielder up to 5.7m for this week?

        If the Leeds - Southampton goes ahead I'm gonna BB. It looks like it's Raphinha or Harrison, but I'm also eyeing some sneaky guys like CHO and Gundogan.

        1. Coys96
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Raphinha if that games goes ahead, but Gundogan if not

          I just don’t trust CHO as an option, and Gundo only slightly more. I just hope the Leeds fixtures remain as is tbh

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

            You'd be crazy to trust him as an option. But he's been their best attacker lately and I expect him to start at least one of the next 2 games. Humongous differential too ofc.

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

              Fair enough. He has been getting into good positions, I agree. Would you bench boost with those guys as well or only if Lee-Sou is on?

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

                I will only BB if the Lee-Sou game is on. Otherwise I'll be happy to roll with what I have and either TC or use no chip.

                1. CBonci

                  4 days, 7 hours ago

                  I’d go Gundo over CHO in that case.

        5. jomikijiq

          Soucek

        6. Sulley
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          If you are not fixated on the double, Saka could tear Newcastle to shreds if his form looks like it may continue. Palace game will be an indicator.

        7. ZimZalabim

          do u own Soucek already ? If not he is the obvious one

            • 10 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            Yeah I suppose. But he's the boring option.

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              true but sometimes boring is best, he has the best fixtures as well

          I dont think it's a big risk, given that Villa training ground is set to reopen on saturday (I've heard)

          If training ground opens Saturday you would hope it will go ahead

        DCL to Antonio for free? No brainer? DCL looking to drop this evening so am willing to risk an early transfer.

          No... Don't buy Antonio yet. I need him to not go up in price before the DGWs are confirmed....

        My actual WC draft::

        Martinez - Forster
        dallas - cancelo - WalkerPeters - cresswell - struijk
        kdb - fernando - son - soucek - smith rowe
        vardy - kane - bamford

        any suggestion?
        kane or not kane?

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

          Don't see a reason to have Spurs over Salah

          Also Forster/Struijk are 100% transfers waiting to happen since you will probably want to BB26

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

            they are playing SHU, what other reasons you need?

            1. Tosa86
              • 3 Years
              4 days, 7 hours ago

              I'm playing my WC....that's the question...any feedback?

                • 8 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                Salah over Kane if on WC, other option is to move KDB to Salah once fixtures turn.

                1. Tosa86
                  • 3 Years
                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  it's my WC draft.
                  you prefer salah on kane?for DGW or long term?

                2. Tosa86
                  • 3 Years
                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  the fixtures of city are better than liverpool...

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

              Having DGW would be nice

          2. Tosa86
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            you prefer salah instead son e kane?

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

              of course

              1. Tosa86
                • 3 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                why? salah had 3 blanks point...son and kane have better fixtures than liverpool. not?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Noice team though

      9. AlpoShearer
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        Kane and Grealish to Antonio and Salah -4?

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

          Yup

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

        Who's scores more assuming the Leeds DGW goes ahead?

        A) Soucek (BUR, WBA)
        B) Bamford (BHA, SOT)

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          B but I doubt the game will proceed, go with A

        2. Make ManeMane Make ManeMane
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Definitely B

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

          A in either case I think.

        4. sunzip14
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          B

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

          B

          but think it won't

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

          A

      11. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 7 hours ago

        A. Laca to Antonio (no Liverpool)
        B. Laca & Son to Decordova-Reid & Salah -4

        Which one?

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

          Of those two, A for me. Don’t like the hit in that situation.

        4 days, 7 hours ago

        What is the lowest points score by any individual in any one particular game - i.e. someone who got sent off, missed a pen, conceded lots of goals, all in the same game? I guess you could have someone with a -5 or more?

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

          -4 for Jon Walters vs Chelsea at stoke in 2012/12

          Two own goals and a missed penalty

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

            i owned him

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

            Yes yes. Well remembered. I was trying to remember myself. It’s got to be this.

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

          I think it was -3. So not major.

        3. Hybrid.power
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Jon Walters scored two own goals and missed a penalty in one game back in 2013.

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

            I remember it well but couldn’t remember if it was -3 or -4

            1. Hybrid.power
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              4 days, 7 hours ago

              As far as I recall, there was a time when minus points weren't given for own goals....I think...could have been around then too

        4. Traction Engine Foot
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Bertrand got -5 I think, sent off when Southampton lost 9-0 to Leicester

          1. ivantys
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              -6

          2. aleksaa2
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            I remember Gibbs vs Chelsea when he got a red, he had -5.

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              in the 6 nil loss when they mistook him for the ox

          3. true_Jerry
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Bertrand got a -6 last season

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

              Bertrand equalled Walters.. Correct me if I’m wrong!

          4. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Jonny Evans got sent off when United lost 6-1 to City. Maybe just a -3 for that one?

          5. Tambling5
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Thanks all. How interesting. Do FPL ever report this type of info?

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

          Would you rather...
          A - use 1FT or no transfers at all, get 10 DGW + Kane (one DGW left on the bench) or...
          B - take a -8 hit, use BB, get 14 DGW + Maupay?

          TC also a possibility if I go with A.

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

            A

          2. sunzip14

        6. L S P
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 7 hours ago

          Better use of a FT into GW19?

          A) Targett -> Coufal
          B) Lacazette-> Antonio
          C) Both for a -4

          (already own Soucek)

          Cheers.

          1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

            B maybe

          2. sunzip14
            • 3 Years

            C

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

            Targett to coufal because bamford might still have a good double and Antonio has more risk than coufal (just back from injury)

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

              Sorry don’t know why I thought you u were selling bamford doh. Reading my own team into the thread here

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

          worth a -8 to get KDB, Vardy and Foden on the team? Or KDB, Antonio and Cancelo?

          1. sunzip14
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 7 hours ago

          Afternoon ladies and gents.

          Splooged my Free Hit chip this GW for what will likely be another dire week in my FPL season.

          Next DGW I have this questionable bunch:

          Martinez
          Justin Robertson KWP Cresswell
          Grealish Salah Bruno Bowen
          DCL Vardy Adams

          Ryan Taylor Bissouma

          Would you:

          A) DCL & Taylor > Antonio/Bamford & Cancelo (-4)
          B) Hold and hope DCL isn't too dodgy
          C) Go crazy and use the Wildcard to get some of the dead wood out (Ryan, Taylor, Bowen, Adams? DCL? Bissouma) for more sexy Man City / Leeds / long term picks

          Thanks all 🙂

          1. Steve The Spud
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Wait for news but dcl to bam looks a solid move all around

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

            Almost definitely A, you have a good DGW team there.

          3. TheBiffas
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              i'd go with option A, as Bowen has a nice DGW

            • Gromit
              • 11 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Thanks all. A it is. Hopefully Bowen can finally score more than 2 pts...

            Anyone watch the Utd game last night and think that Martial hindered Cavani yesterday? I swear there were 2 or 3 times when Cavani could of had a SOT if Martial would of left it or passed it rather than shooting himself. Is he now injured? May get Cavani in for the double as thought his movement was good.

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

              Martial is probably injured. Pulled up with a hamstring issue late on.

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

                Can see Cavani doing a Forlan at Anfield this weekend.

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

              I agree. Also really doesn't work with Rashford on the right. I think Cavani has exposed how good it is to have a real striker, Rash should stay first choice on the left, and Martial has to be second choice at this point.

            What would you do here?

            Meslier+
            Robbo+ dallas+ kwp+ chilwell+ justin+
            Salah+ bruno+ grealish+
            Bamford+ kane+

            Steer* lookman+ dcl* bissouma*

            Theoretically at least, 12 doubles and 3 players out.

            Had planned bissouma-> soucek and then considering BB, but with DCL injured, no city players and fixture chaos - I'm really confused!!!

            1. sunzip14
              • 3 Years
              4 days, 7 hours ago

              DCL>Antonio popular now

                • 8 Years
                4 days, 7 hours ago

                Bit annoyed that this is so obvious, been waiting to move DCL on to Antonio for weeks now.

            Hoping for a Foden haul later as my only real non template pick on FH. Anyone else take a punt on him?

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              was going to had him in all day yesterday then ripped my team up to fit in sterling

            2. BenDavies
              • 8 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              brave decision. i take you didn't own him earlier in the season?

              1. Big Ronnie
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                First time this season, wouldn't want him longer term but as a one off punt doesn't seem that risky. Was either Wilson, Gundo or him.

          7. hogree

            Son and Grealish --> KDB + Gundogan / Raphinha ? (-4)

            No news about the Villa v Everton game? Thought there would be information about it now, anyone think it will still be on?

              Mentioned earlier training ground reopening Sat, could be good news?

              Could also be internet BS.

                Good team

                maybe Dier -> Cancelo/Dias

                GWs 20-22 are also much better for City

              A) Salah, Son, Brewster
              B) Salah, Rashford, Brewster
              C) Son, Rashford, Antonio

              All three play, as planning to BB.

              Thanks all.

              is martial actually injured ? no flag in FPL and they love putting flags on players with even the slightest mention of a knock
