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.

    Benched Hamez for Soucek. Shame as he would have been a huge differential.

  4. KAPTAIN KANE

    All setup for the Bruno penalty winner

    Lol. I know I asked for more again in the 2nd half but wow 🙂

    DCL assist and no United clean sheet. Nice 🙂

    Shaw owners go from a potential goal to -1pt in 7 minutes

      Gotta laugh, season is a joke after all

        Just goes to show how much this whole game is luck based, even with the best stats at our disposal. Comforting and discouraging in equal measure...

        (I've got no vested interest in this particular incident for the record)

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Mainly luck. On the other hand triple captaining Bednarek would be nothing to do with luck

        2. Ruth_NZ

          90% luck, 20% maths apparently. 😕

    Oh.......well, what is this now

  8. Paul Psychic Octopus

    Damn. Was hoping Soucek > Hames would be a differential, not a bandwagon.

    1. AC/DC AFC

      Keep it quiet

      If they beat West Ham in the CUp. Would be Crystal Palace.

    Bruno off he bonus

    1. Magic Zico

      Good! (owner)

  14. Bonus magnet
    • 4 Years

    Why is that a DCL assist

    We had the same issue when they didn’t give Chilwell a similar one

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Bruno had one against Fulham that was given tho

    2. Gizzachance
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Assist should be a pass to scorer, not palmed by keeper
      Dcl owner by the way !

      1. Kellz86
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        I agree even though I have DCL starting.

        This goes the same for any shot saved by the keeper and a player scoring the rebound

    3. Sack The Glazers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      the only people complaining about the DCL assist are those who benched him. I didn't and I'm not complaining.

    4. Saka_me_sideways
        5 months, 23 days ago

        I’m still waiting for that Chilwell assist to be added...

      • Kellz86
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        To be honest I’m not sure why there is so much inconsistency,

        Remember the Sanchez assist that rebounded off two Leicester City players before finding its way to Utd for a goal?

        Sometimes it doesn’t make sense

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Mike Dean would have gave red for that

    6. AzzaroMax99
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Rodriguez better shout for the double than DCL?

    7. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      We all should've got Doucore in for the DGW instead of Pope.

    8. Lets Talk About 19 Baby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Yes bringing in Shaw has broken Utd.

    9. Kaneyonero
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Well at least that means DCL come in for Soucek as he got zero right? 😉

      1. HonestBlatter

      Say it everytime. Highly owned players in FPL always get given dodgy assists.

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        This is true

    13. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      DCL, Targett and Martinez on my bench.

      Stones hatrick to.complete the set.

      1. Nomar

        Yes please.

          Yep, that's fpl for you

    15. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 23 days ago

      That's the other thing that happens when POGBA is not on the pitch! 2-2

    16. Differentiator
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      What rule makes it a DCL assist?

      1. KGFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        Rock paper scissors

      2. UNDERWORLD7

        I’d love to know, makes absolute ZERO sense

      5. xuwei
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        Should have been Fernandes’s

      6. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        You not know this game is fixed yet

    17. hullcityfan
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      DDG -> Pope may have been a decent transfer after all

    18. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Harry Maguire is to blame for both of those goals. Way too slow to stop DCL from charging into the box and getting the cut-back and then way too slow to close down James as well.

      He's not fit to be the starting CB let alone be captain of this MUN team.

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        He is, but he needs a pacey CB next to him.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 23 days ago

          He has one. I don't think United's defense would be worse with a CB pairing of Lindelof and Bailly.

        2. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 23 days ago

          You are so wrong, he is not good enough

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 23 days ago

        Liverpool would be happy to have him atm though.

    19. Steve The Spud

      Slab head 🙁

    20. AMBELLINA PRISE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 23 days ago

      Bet your life that even if Doucoure scores two more goals, Bruno gets 3 bonus points
