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.

      would you BB this even if leeds game postponed:

      fabianski / bamford / raphinha / mitchell

      1. Hiddenpaw
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        That is my exact bench at the moment. I’m thinking risk it and play. What do you think?

        1. TheBiffas
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            yeah i'm probably gonna risk it mate.

        2. sunzip14
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          I would. Otherwise it will be a lot of distraction to move them out, find other enablers with good fixtures in a gw and then move them out again.

          From experience I always like to use the BB as soon as I see a good opportunity, because you often struggle with injuries and unexpected changes later on in the season. So if you don't have a WC on hand to rectify smaller issues in the team, it's difficult to use the BB late in the season.

          So even though you may not have DGW players in every slot, if you're bench is fit and have good fixtures the BB could potentially give you a big boost still.

        4. HuttonDressedasLahm

          4 days, 5 hours ago

          Fabianski alone could get 15 points
          I’d bench boost

          1. FatmanAndRobin
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 5 hours ago

            Do you think Fab will be fit and come straight back in?

      2. sunzip14

        4 days, 6 hours ago

        Surprised there aren't any FH19 teams floating around. I thought riding out BGW18 with FTs and FH19 was quite a popular strategy initially?

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Initially it was. Not after the covid havoc

          1. sunzip14
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            But didn't expect this many to abandon that plan. I went with it and was able to field 11 without hits this GW. Have 6dgwers but unsure if I should FH or not. Not liking this feeling of not knowing what the template is 😀

            1. F_Ivanovic
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              I'm in the same position mate. Got 3 City and 1 United but then the rest of my DGW are 2 Villa and Leeds... so if either game is off it makes the decision to FH easy. Haven't really got around to thinking about a team though yet! You got any thoughts?

              1. sunzip14
                • 3 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                Current team:

                DDG*, Forster
                Justin*, Coufal*, Dier, Holding, Mitchell
                KDB*, Bruno*, Son, Grealish*?, Zaha
                Kane, Wilson, Brewster

                FH draft:

                Johnstone
                Justin, Coufal, Stones. Mitchell, 3.8
                KDB, Bruno, Salah, Rashford/Son, Soucek
                Vardy/Werner, Antonio, Brewster

                Selecting Werner and keeping Son leaves 1.4 itb to upgrade defense and probably get Cancelo and a better GK. Alternately, could just do Kane+Zaha>Salah+Antonio (-4) and save the FH as well.

                1. F_Ivanovic
                  • 5 Years
                  4 days, 5 hours ago

                  Looks decent. Will definitely have similar. I'm half tempted to go for Bamford as a SGW player though (as opposed to Son just because I think he probably offers the best value in that price bracket and it would enable me to go a bit more expensive at the back. (and also go for Vardy who I'd much prefer over Werner)

        2. Weeb Kakashi
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Initially. Not after the fixture rescheduling.

          FH 18 was the most popular.
          Riding both with FH is second.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Without*

        3. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          It was before they announced that MCI and MUN will have both blank and double. So i got triple from both and already had some DGWers.

        4. Im New Here
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            I'm thinking of FH19 but cautious cause of the fixtures havoc. Might save it for later.

          • Karhumies
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Fixture changes made sticking to that plan almost as difficult to stick to BB19 plan.

          • Krionos
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 5 hours ago

            Didn't see the point in a FH for the DGW as most teams you want for that week have good fixtures afterwards too, so I wanted to keep that team anyway.

          • jamiejoe
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 5 hours ago

            Could free hit but with just Arsenal and Spurs on single game week I'm happy to go with 8 double game week players and use transfers.

        5. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Assuming Villa Eve and Leeds Sou is rescheduled, what would be the best move here?

          A. Kane + Anguissa > Vardy + Soucek (-4)
          B. Kane + Adams > Vardy + Antonio (-4)
          C. Raphinha > Soucek
          D. Kane > Vardy

          Meslier
          Cancelo Stones Coufal
          Salah KDB Bruno Raphinha
          Kane Bamford Adams
          Martinez Anguissa Konsa Taylor

          1 FT 0.1 ITB

          1. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Adams -> Antonio for free?

            1. King Kohli
              • 8 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Sadly 0.1 short for that move.

        6. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Surely Klopp will sacrifice FA cup and play Salah against Burnley for crucial PL points?

          1. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Agree

          2. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Obviously. There is no chance of salah not playing if fit

          3. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Why did Klopp play Salah against a bunch of kids in the FA Cup?

            1. jomikijiq
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Villa was after 4 days of rest and 9 days before the next match

              Now FA Cup will be 2 days after Burnley and 5 days before Spurs

        7. Weeb Kakashi
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 6 hours ago

          Pick one for the DGW and Beyond

          A Son Cresswell +4
          B Ings Pulisic/Ziyech
          C Vardy Raphinha

          Assuming Leeds Southampton goes ahead.

          1. TheBiffas
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              unpopular opinion B but with a different mid

              1. Weeb Kakashi
                • 4 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                Barnes?

            • Gromit
              • 11 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              A - very solid and dependable

            Anyone not using any chips next week either?

            Just about getting through with 9 players this week. Red arrow guaranteed tho

            Have 8-10 dgw plsyers next week depending on sot leeds game going ahead or not

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

              I might use TC but most likely no chips 10 or 11 dgw players

            2. Bury94
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Think I'm gonna use TC on KDB

            3. Black Knights
              • 8 Years
              4 days, 5 hours ago

              Got through with 9 for this week with no hit.

              Had 8 DGWers, 1FT and Son & Kane for free for next week but Villa, Leeds, Saints will spoil that.

              With fixtures a risk, i don't think i'll TC.

              So i'll be hoarding all chips for WC24/BB25/FH29 or whatever it is, plus any time Spurs get another DGW for the TC.

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

              Depending on how KDB + City do tonight i’ll find it hard to not TC KDB

            5. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 days, 5 hours ago

              Looks like I'm going from 7 DGW players to 3 due to postponements so FH19 looks likelier and likelier.

              1. Andy_Social

                • 8 Years
                4 days, 5 hours ago

                I was all set to BB with 13 doublers, Son and Kane. Will put it away for another week - if the season lasts long enough.

            6. HuttonDressedasLahm
              • 11 Years
              4 days, 5 hours ago

              Maybe BB, maybe TC, maybe none. Depends on fixtures

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

            For the Double, shd I..

            A> Kane and Son to Vardy and Kdb -4

            B> Kane and Maddison to Cavani and Kdb -4 and keep Son

            1. My heart goes Salalalalah
              • 4 Years

              A

            • 1 Year
            4 days, 6 hours ago

            Which will be more effective- the Bench Boost or Triple Captain (KDB) chip with this team?

            McCarthy / Johnstone
            Coufal / Stones / Robertson / Dallas / Pieters
            KDB / Salah / Soucek / Bruno / Lookman
            Adams / Vardy / Bamford

            Currently 15 dgw players but this could be reduced to 11 if the Sou/Leeds game is postponed

            1. Karhumies
              • 8 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              So your bench boost would be:

              McCarthy SGW vs Leicester, Dallas SGW vs Brighton, Lookman DGW vs Chelsea & ManU, Adams SGW vs Leicester? Looks pretty good to me.

                • 6 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                Leeds and Saints having SGW? Is it confirmed?

                1. Karhumies
                  • 8 Years
                  4 days, 5 hours ago

                  Decision will be made "this week". Southampton and Shrewsbury are requesting it. Leeds are not opposing it.

            I'm aware this might come back to haunt me but I enjoy everyone's solution to DCL's hamstring injury is the man with the dodgiest hamstrings in the league.

            1. Nightcrawler

              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Are people really getting antonio?

              I thought it was all talk jist like woods was essential when price dripping was going on

                4 days, 6 hours ago

                It is genuinely surprising as when someone like pulisic or shaw is mentioned they are shot down as injury prone but people queuing up to get Antonio

                1. Nightcrawler
                  • 1 Year
                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  Never getting injury prone players again

                  Learned the lesson the hard way with matip

            2. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              People still dreaming of that 4 he got against Norwich

                • 4 Years

                Very good option as long as he can stay fit, tbf

                • 9 Years

                He had a good run of form before that game tho

                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  Yep, he’s a monster when fit but has basically spent an entire 1/2 season injured

                    If Leeds double off then there is a limited range of cheap strikers in that price bracket and he has two sweet fixtures so it is a decent punt IMO although his fitness and form are clearly lacking

                The problem is, there really is no one else that has a DGW in 19 and is a budget striker if the Lee-Sou game is off.

                Chris Wood is the only other one and he's just an awful option.

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

                  Cavani is a great option, especially if Martial is out.

                  1. Salan
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    4 days, 6 hours ago

                    Cavani is not a budget striker.

                      OP asks for a DCL replacement, same price.

              Which other options are there though especially if leeds game postpones

                • 6 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                Cough up more cash for Ings is best alternative IMO

                  • 3 Years
                  4 days, 6 hours ago

                  Ings could only have 1 game

                  1. elwardio
                    • 9 Years
                    4 days, 6 hours ago

                    True. I dropped bamford on wc last week and got Antonio he seems best punt as Leeds likely a single

              3. sunzip14
                • 3 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                This. If Leeds game is on, I will get Bamford. Otherwise, can't see beyond Antonio for the dgw, specially as I am also planning for a FH.

            4. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Not getting him myself but there's a real lack of other viable options at this point.

              I'd rather to keep Son and Laca over those chelsea assets despite having dgw

              I am pretty sure they will outscore the latter

            4. FPL_Motty

              Not Werner. Ziyech decent shout but to lose Son for him? No. Lose someone else for Ziyech? Yeah

              Southampton vs Leeds and villa vs Everton could be

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                4 days, 6 hours ago

                This - arguably Man City Villa but I think the PL will put pressure on Villa to start playing some of their games.

            Main issue with FH19 is figuring out how tf I'll build a team to BB in DGW26 while simultaneously ensuring I have a viable side for BGW29.

            1. elwardio
              • 9 Years

              Can prob get 10 doubles and then 8 singles with some planning and no hits? Not the end of the world

              WC19 better option as it allows to prepare for both 19 and 26 and use FH29?

                How does WC19 allow you to prepare for 26? No chance I take that option.

              If you've saved a FH in 18, absolutely don't waste it for 19. Keep it like you said for a combo for DGW 26 and BGW 29

                Not sure it's "wasting" to turn a side with - most likely - 4 DGWers into 11.

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

              FH in 19 = FH in BGW29 if you're replacing 5+ SGW players with doublers. It's basically 5 extra matches either way.

            Villa - New can still be scheduled for GW19 correct? They both have a free slot (after Villa's game with City)
            Shrewsbury still hasnt played a game yet meaning their tie with Southampton could be pushed further down past GW19?

            Trying to hold on to some hope that Villa and Leeds will still have a DGW lol

              Shrewsbury v Saints likely to be played next midweek, which means saints leeds would be off, have to play before 4th round or forfeit which shrews will try to avoid even by playing kids. Villa could play newcastle on that weekend which i would welcome as a Martinez owner.

            I believe this signing is far better than lay tons of money on Sancho. Diallo (Mich cheapet than Sancho) is going to be a success in the long view. With Rashford-Fernandes-Diallo and even Greenwood Utd is gonna have one of europes most existing attacks. A top deal!

            Martinez
            Stones Cancelo Coufal Taylor -- Dallas
            Bruno Kdb Rashford Son -- Burke
            Bamford Lacazette -- Wilson

            A: Son + Lacazette >> Salah + Antonio (-4)

              I'd buy Pulisic or Ziyech. Have the two best City attackers on display (from tonight) and then fill out the rest with West Ham budget enablers. Nothing fancy.

              1. fedolefan
                • 6 Years
                4 days, 5 hours ago

                Yeah, Pulisic/Werner, Vardy, Robbo, Salah, KDB all in my team I think. Very nice differentials. Already own Sterling but considering Jesus instead of him for the FH.

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

              I'd have something like this if I played it

              Mendy
              Robbo, Chilwell, Dias, Cresswell
              Salah, KDB, Bruno, Soucek
              Jesus, Antonio

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

                Chilwell, Jesus -> Cancelo, Vardy also fine

                • 6 Years

                Sweet team kinda similar. Just playing with that Bruno spot at the moment to release funds.

            Anyone looking at Cavani for the double if Martial is out with hammy?

            1. The Train Driver
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              Already got him for this week, could have had a goal or 2. Even better option now Martial may be injured.

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

                Do you think he plays both?

                1. The Train Driver
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  4 days, 5 hours ago

                  If Martial is out yes, if not maybe limited minutes. Think he can do a lot of damage anyhow.

            2. Konstaapeli
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 6 hours ago

              I got him in for a hit (DCL out) before this GW. Figured he's a decent punt for this and next GW.

            Playing BB. Risk of leaving it to a later DGW is more resting/rotation of key assets for European/FA Cup games.

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

              Same

              But the biggest downside of BB26 is no team for BGW29 unless you have FH for that

            Tonight is a big one for me and I'm sure many others re. MCI assets.

            I have KDB, Cancelo and Gundogan who I'm hoping to put on a show for my FH18 team but then I also need to understand what to do for my GW19 team - currently no MCI mids (only Dias) - hoping the eye test and some kind of post-match comment from Pep help shed some light!

              Exact same 3 on FH, and only Dias for 19 so far. Let's share our thoughts after the game 🙂

                Looking forward mate! Were you planning on BB this week also?

                  Yes but plan aborted

                    Even if LEE-SOU happens still?

              btw. defense is over 100%EO if Cancelo/Dias/Stones all start

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

                I can imagine - every team I saw pretty much had the double def!

                Gundo was my big punt...

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

                  Jesus here

                    • 3 Years
                    4 days, 5 hours ago

                    That's a hefty punt!

              Same boat, KDB Cancelo Stones in this game, Dias next game.

              Have to get KDB in for the double. Going to TC as well

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                4 days, 5 hours ago

                My issue is lack of easy options to get in KDB - likely to mean a -8 .... not happy about that!

                Is he free of rotation risk?

              That's interesting. Did you consider WC rather than FH as an alternative option considering City, Manu, Whm and other teams with good upcoming fixtures to solve your gw19 dilemma?

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                4 days, 5 hours ago

                Briefly but I saw WC as more important later to set things up for later blanks/ doubles

                1. jamiejoe
                  • 5 Years
                  4 days, 5 hours ago

                  Have KDB, Foden and Stones and FH and WC chips intact.

                  Loads. Captained Bruno and i went with king Kev!

            What's the lowdown on McCarthy's chances of playing.

              Apparently he's back in training so sounds promising.

            I heard a rumour that Aguero will come out of isolation disguised as Torres, so he can appear in the City lineup.

            How likely is it KDB will be rested for one of the DGW matches? Assuming he plays tonight.

            1. Nightcrawler
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 5 hours ago

              Very very low

              Can't see it happening. 5 days in between the two games at home. He will be rested for the FA cup away against Cheltenham on the 23rd.

            Please pick which 3 to have from 4. Price is important factor as well. Captaincy potential too.

            KDB
            Salah
            Son
            Kane

            Currently have Salah out

                kdb, salah, son

                Get all 4, sort it out.

                KDB and Salah for sure

                I prefer Kane to Son, but it's debatable due to price difference and would captain one of them only in GW23, so maybe Son better value

                Over what timeframe?

              Son + Bissouma to KDB + Smithrowe for -4..?

                  4 days, 5 hours ago

                  I would, especially if you're going to captain KDB.
