Pogba making case for FPL inclusion as United face more appealing fixtures

FULHAM 1-2 MAN UNITED

  • Goals: Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) | Edinson Cavani (£7.8m), Paul Pogba (£7.7m)
  • Assists: André-Franck Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) | Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m)
  • Bonus points: Pogba x3, Zambo Anguissa x2, Cavani x1

POG IN THE WHEEL

Paul Pogba‘s (£7.7m) latest Fantasy Premier League return has installed him on many a radar ahead of Gameweek 20.

The Frenchman netted the winner in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory at Fulham on Wednesday night and has involved himself in three goals since Gameweek 17.

No member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad has matched Pogba’s attacking returns over the last four matches, in which he has produced an average of seven points.

By comparison, the more expensive Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) has a goal, assist and five points per game during that period and Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) has a solitary assist to his name.

“I would like to say so (Pogba is at his fittest and most focused). He is happy, physically in good shape and we know all about his talent. Today we played him in midfield and it was worth it.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Whether Pogba can sustain this form beyond Double Gameweek 19 is certainly worth monitoring.

It must be noted, pinning down his favoured position in Manchester United’s formation remains a challenging prospect.

After starting on the left-hand side of attacking midfield against Aston Villa and Burnley, he has returned to the holding roles for the last two matches.

And some cynics might point out that his stunning out-of-the-box goal at Craven Cottage came from his only shot of the game.

DEFENSIVE POTENTIAL?

According to the Fantasy Football Scout Season Ticker, no team has better fixtures for defensive potential over the next six Gameweeks than Manchester United.

They face Sheffield United (home), Arsenal (away), Southampton (home), Everton (home), West Bromwich Albion (away) and Newcastle (home) between now and Gameweek 25 – encouraging indeed.

Their preparation for that run of matches has been relatively positive. Since Gameweek 16, only Arsenal (four) have more clean sheets than Manchester United (three).

However, their start at Fulham might have worried owners of Harry Maguire (£5.4m), Luke Shaw (£4.8m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m).

With the Red Devils producing some sloppy passing and poor defending early-on, the Cottagers exposed their high line in the fifth minute when Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) ploughed through the middle to open the scoring.

And some might argue that United’s defence is not as strong without Victor Lindelöf (£4.8m) next to Maguire, the centre-back missing out at Craven Cottage.

“(Lindelof) is not bad, it’s still his back we’ve got a few issues with, I felt it was better he stayed home, trained a bit and can be ready for the weekend,” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

TAKE A LOOK

A third Premier League goal of the season for Lookman is sure to increase attention on the player for differential potential.

His Wednesday-night opener was his second attacking return of the last three matches and it is possible he could find himself deployed out-of-position from now on.

With Aleksandar Mitrović (£5.5m) still fit enough only for cameo appearances from the bench and Bobby De Cordova-Reid (£5.3m) missing out through suspension, Scott Parker used Lookman as the centre-forward in a 3-4-2-1 formation.

“(Deploying Lookman through the middle) worked to a tee in the first goal. His finishing was deadly. I thought that worked well. He’s vital, everyone has seen he is quality and he proved that tonight. For sure (Lookman will relish the pressure). He needs to relish. A young player who is thriving and getting a run he’s not had over the last couple of years. Huge player and he’s going to be a difference-maker for us.” – Scott Parker

His positioning is, of course, something to monitor in the next few matches although some Fantasy managers could benefit from jumping early.

When sorting the Season Ticker by attacking potential over the next six Gameweeks, Fulham rank second best with Brighton (away) and West Bromwich (away) their next two opponents.

Fulham XI (3-4-2-1): Areola; Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina (Mitrović 83′); Bryan, Reed, Zambo Anguissa (Lemina 79′), Tete; Cavaleiro (Kamara 71′), Loftus-Cheek; Lookman.

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): de Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Bailly, Wan-Bissaka; Fred, Pogba; Martial (McTominay 85′), B Fernandes (Matić 90+5′), Greenwood (Rashford 85′); Cavani.

    Sanchez
    Coufal Walker-P Dias (Lewis Ferguson)
    KDB Bruno Son Soucek (Bissouma)
    Kane Martial Wilson

    What to do with all this KDB money....
    A) Sterling
    B) Gundo
    C) Rashford, Utd triple up for SHU home, money to switch Martial > Vardy

    TBH I'm more tempted with C, I have never had any luck owning Sterling and City are a whole lot less appealing without KDB

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      United are scraping through matches, just don’t see hauls anywhere near them.

  2. Max City
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    KDB replacement?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Son, Pogba, Rashford, Maddison, Gundogan, Vardy, Kane, Antonio etc...

  3. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    A) Gundogan and Vardy
    B) Antonio and Son

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      B

    2. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      B but Vardy will party

  4. Party time

    Dyche is a lovely manager. I love this man & his voice

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I hate him and his voice

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        That tunnel incident probably affected Klopp. Dyche used that to his advantage even though I don’t like Burnley, he is an incredible manager

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Lol agreed. Don’t like Burnley but great to see Klopp lose his mind nonetheless

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

      Klopp really is a bad loser ... but hopefully he will become better at it with experience 😉

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah but I don’t think he will. Pep is even better at that but Klopp just can’t handle it, it is actually funny

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Its time for him to retire 😉

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Clearly said something nasty, lost a lot of respect tonight.

  5. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Pick 2 premiums to bring in... currently leaning towards A1

    A. Son
    B. Rashford

    1. Vardy
    2. Kane

    1. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      A1

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      A1 for me too

    3. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      A1

  6. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Gosh that Liverpool result was welcome news to wake up to ... as a non owner 🙂

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Ditto haha

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I have Salah but I'm more than happy 😆

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        😉

    3. Jumpernot
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Same here was a 4am game for me so I only score when I woke up. Plus loads of salty comments in my football groups from all the Liverpool fans :p

  7. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Cancelo (c) anyone?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      High risk but I may join you with that

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Depends if Bruno plays the FA Cup.
      I have Sterling too! But would go Cancelo over him.

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        If I had Cancelo I will probably do the same but I will rather play it safe in the end

    3. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I have seen a lot of teams with that. It is a risk worth taking since the premium options aren’t doing well either

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        And the top scorers in last 8 gw's have 6 defenders.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          We should probably adapt ... Maybe going 4 atb is an option now

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I think you may be right there. Tired legs are showing.

  8. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    KDB> Grealish is a no brainer?

    Have Sterling already. Dont want Gundo.

    Allows funds to upgrade Wilson to Vardy next week.

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Yes no brainer

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Good 2 pts there

    3. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I’m doing Kdb to Son

    4. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Hold and see if Grealish gets booked at the weekend. One yellow off a suspension

  9. Roy Rovers
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Which one??......

    A - Soucek > Gundogan
    B - Cresswell > Dias
    C - Cresswell > Cancello

    Martinez McCarthy
    Cresswell Stones Shaw Dallas Mitchell
    Bruno Grealish Salah Son Soucek
    Antonio Vardy Bamford

    McCarthy Son Bamford Dallas.

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Save.Cresswell has good fixtures coming up.
      Gundo will give you more benching headaches.

    2. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      A/ Save

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Dallas to Cancelo ?

    4. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      A

  10. Mr. O'Connell
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Is this a bad team? Thought it was ok, but a 57 point GW says otherwise.

    Not sure what my rank is, but after starting the GW at 100k, I'm guessing I might be about 500k now. Thinking KDB has gotta go if injured, but who to buy?

    Martinez, Forster
    Cancelo, Coufal, Dallas, Holding, Mitchell
    Salah, KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Soucek
    Vardy, Bamford, Brewster

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      KDB > Gundo.
      Brewster> Kane/Vardy next week.

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Soucek a dud pick now Antonio is back you think? Stats don't look great. I pride myself in never benching Soucek.

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Not necessarily. Soucek is a Central midfielder (more defensive) who i'd not start every week. But he is quite a good asset to have if you rotate.

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Was probably the best value mid/forward in the game up until the start of this week and a good enabler. All that seems to have pretty much changed overnight.

            1. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              I never owned Soucek. I cant pick a more defensive midfielder in fpl. I just cannot. Lol.Thats just my opinion and how i play the game.

              He has been good for some people though.

              1. Jumpernot
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 24 days ago

                I started with him but always had the mentality that he's defensive, I took him out and watched him keep racking up points. Now he's back in 🙁

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      It's a good team.
      Just got on the bad end of the variance. Hard luck

      I scored 89 with 3 to go. But same attack almost as yours. Stones saving my GW single handedly.

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        It was good enough to slowly pull me up the ranks over Christmas period, but all that work undone thanks to the likes of Stones, Dias, Justin and Antonio. Owning 0 of them has just about finished me off.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I also ignored Antonio ...

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Never considered him tbh. Was happy with Soucek and didn't think he'd start both given his injury history. Turns out Soucek turns into a crap pick when Antonio plays as well so a double whammy.

    3. shadeslayer
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I would remove Salah first.. And if Kdb is injured then remove him

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Captained him for all 5 blanks, he's got to score at some point.

  11. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Which teams could have a DGW in 23?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Those with remaining fixtures and no FA cup game to play

  12. jamesjoseph2770
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Grealish and Bellerin >Gundo and Cancelo for (-) 4??

    1. JonSnow
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Wouldn't be getting rid of Grealish, think he is top or close to for chances created

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 24 days ago

        He’s a 2 pointer

  13. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 24 days ago

    Rodrigo to Kane for a hit or play Robertson and do it next week?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Take the hit, Vibudh.

  14. Amey

    Wake up in the morning, PL on my mind !
    It was a fun game yesterday ...

      Trolling ; bit early

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        I'm celebrating not trolling.
        And yeah. Wheels are still there on. Yet to come off completely.

        (I'm sure Pool will come back strong. Klopp is a seasoned manager.)

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Nah ; we’re shot. Legs are gone, not got the squad, without a defense we’re totally out of shape and ineffective and can’t buy a goal while officials just hand them out to opponents and title chasers. We get players back top four is on.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Transfer window is open. I'd think Pool will get one CB

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Don’t think we have a target. Nobody worthwhile is going to leave mid season.

                • 1 Year

  15. Going Home

    Would appreciate some help with this benching headache. Need to pick three to leave out:

    A) Dallas (NEW)
    B) Coufal (cpl)
    C) Mitchell (WHU)
    D) Justin (eve)
    E) Salah (tot)
    F) Smith-Rowe (SOU)
    D) Soucek (cpl)

    Currently on B, C and F. Any help/thoughts appreciated

    1. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      C for sure. B, I suppose. Not sure which or S-R or Soucek; either could perform.

      1. Going Home

  16. jdp219

    Thoughts on Foden as an option? Or is it Gundo because of pens?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Too much rotation

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Even if KDB is out, you think?

        1. Gun gun
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          yeah i wiill go for gundo. surely on pen once KDB is out.
          i have foden and sterling myself now. of course i need to keep both althought i want gundo badly..

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 24 days ago

          They’ve so much depth across midfield, Gundo seems nailed.

        3. JonSnow
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          bilva in the wings too

    2. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      I’d be tempted to avoid city attack while KDB out. (Full disclosure, I’ve only had Stones for the past month, no KDB).

      I find the rotation risk is inevitable and they aren’t looking like regularly battering sides. That will probably be more the case without Kevin. At least gundo has pens and his cost is limited tho...

    Going to be rooting for Arsenal tomorrow, need the prime Ings DGW vs Leeds and Newcastle. TC material that

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Hmm

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Really? Rooting means something different in Australia.

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Course Arteta winning the FA Cup also means he stays for 20 years like Wenger

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      They definitely have the form going into the game

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Results ... playing wise not so much

    5. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Danny “broken” Ings on a DGW TC? Brave!

    6. ivantys
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yup agree Leeds and Newcastle are definitely TC fixtures.

      • Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Have you seen the fixture congestion though? I am all for the TC Ings... But the fixture congestion is just too much to ask of Ings.

        The dates are 28,01,03,06 and the second dgw game could be around 9th or 11th.

        You confident Ings gets through this?

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Too early to say, we'll have a better idea when the time comes. For now though, if the rescheduling occurs I'll make sure to have a plan that has a route to Ings in GW23.

            Vardy for now.

            Vardy to Ings just ahead of 23 seems an easy move.

            Then look to reshape

      Team is doing great, Fab, Meslier
      But now in a state. Maguire Stones Coufal Justin Alioski
      Don't know who to pick. KDB Bruno Mo Barnes Soucek
      Should I be drastic? Firmino Bamford Mitrovic (!?)
      Is wild card the thing
      To make my heart sing?
      Or multiple hits
      To emerge from the pits?

          Didn't want to waste space, but if you ignore the footballers it's a whole poem, tho the word poem may not apply in a literary sense!

          Its also a serious question, sir Knight.
          With three Leeds, dodgy strikers, two goalies, Liverpool players looking like fodder, KDB injured, is it best to reset with a wild card, or start hitting?

        Maguire Stones Coufal Justin Alioski
        KDB Bruno Mo Barnes Soucek
        Firmino Bamford Mitrovic

        Looks like a few hits minimum

        KDB Firmino Mitrovic to ??? Kane, Antonio, Gundo ?

          Thanks Looks a good plan, but foiled by the fact I have three West Ham already. When I started looking at fourth hit that's when I wondered about wild card!

            Perhaps you have missed the Antonio wagon, so big up top with Vardy & Kane ?

            KDB Firmino Mitrovic to ??? Kane, Vardy, Gundo ?

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Spurs will park the bus like everyone else, try the Son/Kane on a break move. It’ll be tight or 0-0.

        2. ivantys
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Why get spurs though if you're selling Salah? There are teams with better fixtures.

              didnt i say i think spurs will win liv thats why i want get son or kane plus the fixtures after that is brighton, chelsea westbrom. thats fine.

              and when u mention other team with better fixtures u mean who?
              chelsea? aston?

                  Manu and Leicester. No point getting Chelsea as it's not possible to predict their scorers.

                Yep. This is what I’m doing.

                Rashford & Pogba also options

            2. ivantys
                2 months, 24 days ago

                I brought in Maddison for KDB, Rash would be my other choice.

                  He was my first thought...kind of like Maddison too. Will think on it. Both teams chasing glory!

                  He was my first thought...now I like the look of Maddison too...will think on it.

                  1. ivantys
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      I was gonna bring him in for Leeds anyway, so since KDB's injured might as well bring him in a week earlier and save some money.

                  not so subtle brag here, 117 (-8) with Grealish/Martinez to play, all chips in tact.

                    that is the way to do it, those chips will be like gold dust later in the season ... a strung out rotation risked possible Covid ravaged GW18 & 19 chip strategy seemed like a risk too far, but some like Andy did well with his BB.

                      Haha thanks. This one feels particularly damaging given the relative scores. Made some good calls recently too (not to FH last week, not to TC this week). Feel it's more bad luck than anything.

                        I thought I was doing well with a rank of 1334! It's a bit scary isn't it! What's you triple captain plan?

                          You're definitely still in it, awesome rank. Gotta be Harry if DW26 goes to plan. But with this season, who knows!! What chips you got left?

                            Wild card and triple captain. Team in a bit of a state after failed bench boost, with three Leeds players ending up as the nonscoring bench. With KDB as well, two goalies, triple WHU but no Antonio, and a grot forward line including Firmino and a Mitrovic punt, I'm seriously considering wildcarding this week, as otherwise will need loads of hits. Normally would just decide quickly, but scarier than usual when rank so abnormally high!

                            1. Hitman MHK
                              • 8 Years
                              2 months, 24 days ago

                              Yep, completely agree with you. I have looked at a wildcard this week to purge my useless bench boost from this week, as well. Got 7 points from the BB.

                              It's going to be hard to sideways trade for the next month to make 0.5 back, notwithstanding any injuries that may happen.

                              It might just be worth it, might...

                                I think my homework for today and tomorrow, is to see whether I can construct a wildcard squad that could adapt to be able to get KDB and Salah back in it if fitness and form turn. So many good mid-priced options in midfield. Quite fancy a forward line of Kane, Ings and Antonio, with DCL able to to come in when one gets injured, rather than all this Wilson, Watkins Bamford jiggery pokery .

                      Lmao all good. I'd be moving KDB, far too much money to be sitting on the bench for 2-3 weeks. Robbo got decent fixtures coming up, no need to sell.

                        Thanks for reply. Kind of surrended after fail post morning here and I'am trying to wake up.

                    I'm guessing he re-injured his hamstring. Always a massive risk with that particular injury, especially when you come back relatively quickly like 2 weeks. Probs be out twice as long now.

                      Agreed.

                      Big out for Burnley too, finally when they get a full strength squad. Understand them trying to rest Pieters, but too soon for Taylor to be starting.

                          FWIW I got him out for Reece James who scored the same amount of pts anyway!

                            Hahaha how frustrating. I got him in the same week he does his hammy. They end up keeping a CS and I miss out. Sounds familiar.... lol

                      Same concern. He had one snapshot which required a very good save from Pope. He looked busy, sought the ball, but was crowded out the whole time and lacking any inspiration. With their tricksy fixtures, dropping him wouldn't seem ridiculous at all. But it could look silly in a heartbeat????....

                      Salah out of form. LIV out of form. Not going to hold onto past fantasies or be stubborn. He is out the door.

                        Keep. The curse has ended he'll get 13 points next game.

                      What to do here?
                      Benching headache post BB. Best starting 11?

                      Martinez
                      Dallas Dias Coufal R James
                      Salah Soucek Foden Bruno
                      Bamford Antonio

                      Mendy Wood Justin KDB*

                        Justin instead of Dallas. Leicester look great atm - Leeds very poor. Wood for Soucek might be reasonable too.

                      Who will win?

                      1. Grealish + Martinez + 7 points
                      2. Wilson + Targett

                        2.

                        Serious? 1. would win even without +7 points.

                          1 likely doesn't even need the 7 point start

                          Wilson brace will win it.

                        It is the first time since I have started playing this game that none of my players has scored a goal. And 8 of them have had two games to try doing that. 9th player with two games is Martinez - still hope?

                        Grealish or Gundogan for the next few gw’s?
