Pogba returns for Man United as Cavani overcomes ankle issue

Paul Pogba (£7.7m) returns to the Manchester United line-up as they prepare to face Everton in Gameweek 23.

The French international was handed a rest for the midweek win over Southampton but slots in at central midfield today.

He is paired with Scott McTominay (£4.9m), allowing Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) to take up his best position in the attacking midfield: the left-hand side.

Mason Greenwood (£7.0m) starts on the other side of Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m), this week’s most-captained player among the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers.

Edinson Cavani (£7.9m) has overcome the ankle problem he sustained against Southampton to keep Anthony Martial (£8.7m) on the bench and will be searching for his third goal in four starts.

With Eric Bailly (£4.9m) missing out, Victor Lindelöf (£4.8m) starts a third Premier League matches in a row for the first time since Gameweek 15 while Luke Shaw (£4.9m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) occupy the full-back roles either side of Harry Maguire (£5.5m).

Everton line-up in 4-3-3 formation at Old Trafford with James Rodríguez (£7.7m) and Richarlison (£7.8m) either side of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m).

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) drops to the bench as Carlo Ancelotti prefers more workman-like options such as Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.2m), Tom Davies (£5.2m) and André Gomes (£5.3m) in his central midfield trio.

Gameweek 23 Starting Line-ups

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Pogba, McTominay; Rashford, B Fernandes, Greenwood; Cavani.

Everton XI (4-3-3): Olsen; Digne, Godfrey, Keane, Holgate; Davies, Gomes, Doucouré; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Rodríguez.

      I don't him but that's an assist for me.

      It's a DCL assist for the same reason that Bruno got that one against Fulham for Cavani a few weeks ago.

      Game has lost all integrity

    DCL assist given

    1. jason_ni
      • 5 Years

      Absolutely no consistency on these assists.. some given, majority of those are not.

  3. Bobby Digital

    Was a cross more than a shot

  4. Sco
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    TBH, I'm gonna say that was a shot because if it was a pass it's genuinely one of the worst passes I've ever seen. Who was he even aiming at?

    Htf is that an assist

    1. Neevesy
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Pretty simple. Take it you don't own DCL?

  6. Mile Plankton

    It's as much of an assist as it was Bruno's against Fulham.

    1. KDB United

      Agree

    2. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Not really if its the one I'm thinking off.. that one bruno toed it into the path, no other touch or deflection.

      Dcl crossed into box, defeat fluffs it and pushes back into the box.

      Why do people on here get son wound up about assists? I've seen a lot worse than that given, it was an assist imo.

      Is anyone actually objective on here?

      1. Mile Plankton
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        No, they just benched DCL

      I very clearly need some help with captaincy decisions, so asking way ahead of time. Have 2FTs to spend, too, so more options may be available, but this is where I'm at now.

      Captain for gw24?
      1) Bruno @ wba
      2) DCL v. Fulham and City

      1. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I’m looking at either Pope, Gundo or a city defender

        1. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Not sold on Gundo, but he's an option.

          I've been saying (almost in jest) that I should just captain Martinez. I guess I can throw him in, too. Can't get worse, really.

        No, it was an obvious assist. Why can't people see this?

      United defence is rubbish, they were very lucky not to concede 1 or 2 against 10 man saints last week
