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.

        same - the last minute of both games caused a 10 point swing in that choice

    • Chilli Heatwave
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Martinez Ogbonna and DCL on the bench, that’s enough for me

      1. Gizzachance
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Martinez an dcl to on bench
        Sure there’s many more

      Godfrey kicks the ball away, doesn't get booked. Tuanzebe wins the ball, gets booked and Everton score from the resulting free kick a minute after time was up.

        Maybe Ole shouldn’t have made the slow sub ... which the ref rightly played extra time for.

        Holy cow!!!!!!!!!!
