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
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 14 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

      Thiago at his best is in another league

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 14 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

        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.

          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
          4 months, 14 days ago

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

        0 bps for Bruno never seen that before

        Another painful what if episode as a Rashford owner

          He’s too frustrating to own

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 14 days ago

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

            1. Forgetmeknot
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 14 days ago

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

      • Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

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

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 14 days ago

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

        2. GROBARI
            4 months, 14 days ago

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

          Drop Soucek, or see if the RC is rescinded?

          Other mids: Salah, Bruno, Gundo, Grealish

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 Which means it'll be rescinded and he'll get a brace.
