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.

    Does anyone genuinely believe Thiago is better than Scott McSauce?

    The lad is morphing into prime Michael Carrick and it’s beautiful to witness.

      Who's Thiago?

      1. Zladan
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        You might see him pop out of Gundogan’s pocket later this gameweek.

      He definitely has potential. Great passing and surprisingly good composure for his age

    3. Bushwhacker

      Thiago at his best is in another league

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        He's amazing at passing it sideways

    Rashford of Marcus...

    Rash always trying to be too clever.

    Frustrating once again as a Rashford owner

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

      Can only imagine what it’ like owning him, stressful

      West Brom concede more chances on their right which may bode well for him next GW.

    Great idea giving a free kick away on the edge of the box with this keeper.

      Q: What's the difference between England and an albatross? A: An albatross has got two decent wings.

    4. KGFC
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Too early to put him alongside Ronaldo, RVP, Bale (at Spurs), Henry, etc.

      Has the potential but needs to prove over many seasons....

    5. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      No. Done it for 1 season. Do it for 5 or 6 and then we are talking.

    6. Slitherene
      • 3 Years

      How come you didn't cry foul over DC-L's assist tonight?

  22. FCSB
    • 5 Years

    0 bps for Bruno never seen that before

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Because I captained him

  23. Forgetmeknot

    Another painful what if episode as a Rashford owner

    1. Here's Tom with the We…
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      He’s too frustrating to own

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Yes, but Soucek out us priority. And Son has been even more frustrating lately.

        1. Forgetmeknot
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          Can’t take him out before wba but I don’t think he will survive my wc in 25

  24. Camzy

    Bruno 7 pts ain't so bad I suppose. But still time to go...

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Another return is worth 5/7 points for Bruno so hold!

    2. GROBARI
      • 1 Year

      You have nobody to transfer out except him? You are pro bro

    2 FT, 4.4 ITB

    Martinez ¦ Forster
    Maguire Coufal Cancelo Lowton
    Bruno Rashford Grealish Barnes
    Jesus Ings

    Own Rash and if he scored with Bruno assist i get nothing right?

    No Bruno with 143.38% EO will cover 5 points

    1. Ragabolly
      • 11 Years

    Drop Soucek, or see if the RC is rescinded?

    Other mids: Salah, Bruno, Gundo, Grealish

    1. Salah’s Sonnet
      • 10 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Ha! Which means it'll be rescinded and he'll get a brace.
