Rashford benched as Fernandes owners hope for return to away-day form

A benching for Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) is the key Fantasy Premier League talking point ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Fulham.

The England international put in a gut-busting shift full of running against Liverpool at Anfield and has now been handed a rest at Craven Cottage.

Mason Greenwood (£7.0m) comes in for Rashford while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has selected Anthony Martial (£8.8m) on the flanks of his attacking midfield so he can deploy Edinson Cavani (£7.8m) up-front.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) is to shoulder the main Fantasy responsibility as far as Manchester United’s goals are concerned although he is on a perplexing run of form.

Despite favouring away matches at the start of the season, the Portuguese international has blanked in three of his last four road trips.

Meanwhile, Fulham have gone with the usual back-three of Tosin Adarabioyo (£4.5m), Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) and Ola Aina (£4.5m) that has conceded one or fewer goals in each of their last six matches.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.5m) is fit enough only for the bench so Scott Parker has to make do with a front-three of Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m), Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) and Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) in light of Bobby De Cordova-Reid‘s (£5.3m) one-match suspension.

Fulham XI: Areola; Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; Bryan, Reed, Zambo Anguissa, Tete; Loftus-Cheek, Lookman; Cavaleiro.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Bailly, Wan-Bissaka; Fred, Pogba; Martial, B Fernandes, Greenwood; Cavani.

    RLC is probably worst player in the world. Another awful english player.

    1. Nimby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He's played well. You appear to be talking nonsense.

      1. Niho992

        10 months, 18 days ago

        playing well ? just lol. He ruined almost every Fulham attack with awful decisions

    It’s scary how consistent Martial is.

    Another game gone by anonymously.

    1. Daniel Jebbison

      10 months, 18 days ago

      Cavani should take over imo. Trashford at least has the stats

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 18 days ago

        For sure, the difference Cavani makes is ridiculous, proper striker.

      I own him for some reason. Keep for SHU or is it a guaranteed 0-2 points?

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 18 days ago

        He likes SHU:

        Jun-20
        Man Utd 3-0 Sheff Utd
        G: Martial x3
        A: Rashford x2, AWB

        Dec-20
        Sheff Utd 2-3 Man Utd
        G: Rashford x2, Martial x1
        A: Martial, Lindelof, Pogba

        1. Big Mac 24

          Seems that Rashford likes them too and he’s decent!

            Yep! Bruno doesn't!

          Wow, thanks for the info. I’m happy just imagining another haul! I’ll manage my expectations but no harm one more week

    3. PrestigeWorldwidewidewide..…

      Based on his end of season form last year I expected much more this season but so far it's not to be

  13. GROBARI

    Trashford with big 1 pointer!

    1. Daniel Jebbison

  15. Doctor Evil
    • 3 Years

    90 with TAA, Salah and Martinez to go, sitting at almost exactly the same rank as before this DGW started of 25k. Guess I should be happy as I didn’t use bench boost or TC

  16. Zladan

    Martial comes off. United win secured.

  17. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Greenwood has dropped off a cliff this season!

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      I heard somewhere he is the best young player in England though

      He didn’t drop off he just over performed for 6 weeks. Another overhyped young English player

  18. Gobigorgohome

    how united top of leage with Rashford and Martial is extraordinary

    1. Daniel Jebbison

      Ole the genius

    2. The Suspended One

      Only halfway through.

      City will be well clear after another month or so.

    4. JONALDINHO

      Their only on 37 pts in 18 games. Not even 2 pts a game which most years wouldn’t even get top 4!

          • 4 Years
          10 months, 18 days ago

          Sorry. 2.05 pts per game. My apologies

    5. Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      the problem is the gap between city and united. city who have been put-putting along in second gear and united who are all heady and think they're actually good

  19. Pacer.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    remember 'the ultimate midfield' of bruno, KdB, salah, son and grealish.

    Every. Single. Year

    1. Lucky Z
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      what to remember?

    2. Salah’s Sonnet

      Damn served me well I know that much 😉

    3. Dthinger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      This is literally the list of the top five scoring mids? What's the joke here?

  20. Lucky Z
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Strange that I did not bring Rashford in with such luck

  21. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Any chance of Bruno getting the assist for the Fulham goal?

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      😆 still time

  22. Salah’s Sonnet
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    KDB + Wilson >> Maddison + Kane

    Here iam actually thinking these are a bit of tidy transfer action.

    Yay or nay?

      Can’t see him starting at the weekend.

  24. Duke Silver ☑

    Cavani has put in more yards in this game than Martial has all season.

  25. ZEZIMA
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Rashy gets a hattrick if he starts this game. Fuming

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      If no keeper for Fulham then sure

  26. Old Bull
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Can’t stress enough how pleased I am to see that extra point from Rashford

  27. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Son to Rashford?

  28. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    Can people stop overrating this United team. They’re on 37 pts after 18 games. Most years this wouldn’t be even enough for top 4. People acting like this team has come on leap and bounds

    1. Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      It has. They were rubbish and now they are mediocre

    2. REDMOND IN SANDALS
        10 months, 18 days ago

        the team top of the league table is overrated makes sense.

    3. The Tinkerman
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      TAA > Cancelo (FT)?

      Martinez (McC)
      TAA, Justin, Stones, Coufal (Ayling)
      Salah, KDB, Bruno, ESR (Soucek)
      Vardy, Bamford (Brewster)

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Stop tinkering

      Kamara YC for simulation?
