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.

    Would you BB this squad for dgw24?

    Martinez
    Dias* Cancelo* Pieters*
    Salah Bruno Grealish Gundo* Rodriguez*
    Antonio Barnes*

    4.0 Bamford Dallas Cresswell

    Cresswell @home vs Shu
    Leeds vs Ars could be goal-fest

    1. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Need a keeper

    2. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Taylor might take Pieters spot.

  3. Jon Snow
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Sold Soucek, DCL points, Bruno Captain and Man U no win or clean sheet. Can't complain with that

    Advice to anyone who has a sh*te GW.

    Just laugh about it!

    2. AzzaroMax99
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Sh*te season. A guy in my ML is first, leading by ~100 pts, while he can’t name more then 5 players in big six teams. Covid19 season.

  5. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Bench of 21pts plus Robbo and Stones

    Currently down to 122k OR from 59k in GW19!

    I may just get one of you to make my decisions for me!

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I'm at 1.2m OR. Would you like my advice?

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yes please mate!

        You’ve prob had more green arrows than me recently!

    2. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I can’t fecking believe I benched DCL. Had him in my starting team, not even thinking about it. Then I saw lots of teams benching him and made the weak weak weak decision to do the same.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Mate at least you didn’t bring in Pope and start over Martinez and cap Antonio over Bruno - on top of starting Soucek over DCL!!

      2. CRO KLOPP
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        DCL should spank you big hand

  6. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    How come MUN defence is so poor?

    1. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Not just defence. Sh*t team full of mental midget who won absolutely nothing

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Keeper. Maguire. Lindelof. AWB. Shaw.

      It’s not a good defense, benching DCL is madness

      1. Jon Snow
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Maybe upgrade Lindelof (or Maguire) to elite defender and you have an excellent defence. Easier said than done though

    3. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      They have Maguire

    4. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Funny how people were saying it was improved and really good just because they'd only conceded 4 in 8 prior. Showing again today that it's poor.

  7. FFFoxy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    52 and brought ings for Watkins for a -4. Could’ve been on for a monster score for this GW. Son sterling, gundo, Dallas still to play (yes I’m bragging it’s been a tough season)

  8. Danno - Emre Canada
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Got Antonio in, so benched DCL oh joy

    1. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Same.

  9. borat
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Is 42 from 6 any good

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      No

    2. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      If they are all in first 11

    3. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I’m sure you’re trying your hardest

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Why even ask?

    5. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Low score this week
      Unlucky

  10. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Need Sterling, Bamford or Raphinha to rest

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Need all to rest

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Just one mate

  11. aborg
    • 4 Years

    As a Son captainer and Bruno owner I’m quite pleased with just 7 points from Bruno !

  12. Hazz

    What's your luck rating this season?

    https://fplreview.com/season-review/#points_table

    I'm on -56.95 (and it doesn't include this week!)

  13. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Played DCL and benched Richarlison and Digne. Don’t own Bruno though.

    • Mr. Chimes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      First sub points since GW20:

      13
      15
      8
      12

      8th attacker must be fodder now, right? With 2 starting defenders on the bench

    • CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      My ML rival played
      Saka(2) Wilson(1)Antonio(2)
      And bench
      Rashford(5) DCL (12) and Targett(7
      Really tough stuff

    • AzzaroMax99
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Who’s the best option from Burnley defs? Pope is no option.
      Pieters seems exciting asset at both ends? You think that Taylor won’t be back for the next gw?

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 7 days ago

        No.

    • Garlana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      im assuming there are lots of deflated managers like myself with DCL first on their bench and bringing in Pope to force Martinez haul onto their bench also?

    • Niho992
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      So glad that Soucek didnt play today. DCL from the bench. Finally some luck for me.

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Lol

        You're having a laugh, right? Soucek was sent off.

        1. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          He is 0 mate. Learn rules first. If player is on 0 points then your first player with points coming in.

            And you get two players if your player has negative pts. And if Bednarek gets rc and -7 you get to start him in next match also 😉

      Odds of a rest for Salah, Gundo or Bamford? DCL first bench. [facepalm]

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 7 days ago

        No chance and not deserved. Why would you bench a striker against this United defense?!?!?

        1. Werner Brothers
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          I had the wrong impression of this united defence

        2. dogtanion
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          A United defence that kept clean sheets against City and Pool this season and an everton attack that couldn't create a chance against Newcastle a week ago..

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 7 days ago

            That concedes at home regularly because they can’t park the bus and played on breaks. United have a terrible home record for a reason.

          2. F_Ivanovic
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            they've conceded 30 goals though.. they only can defend against the big teams.

        3. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Totally fair. And I know there was no chance. Soucek against Fulham lured me in.

          1. The Ilfordian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            All these captain hindsights should answer whether goals more likely against Fulham or Man Utd. Just luck of the draw I’m afraid. Nothing wrong with your decision

        4. Shatner's Bassoon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Not that ridiculous. They got 4 clean sheets in their last 6 PL games. Everton hardly on fire lately.

          1. Werner Brothers
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            This. Choose slabhead because of his goal threat too.
            Feel stupid now.

          2. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 7 days ago

            Parked the bus away, conceding at home. And a match that was over after 3 minutes.

    • Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      DCL ruining my day! Going to BB with this team next week, how does it look?

      Pope
      Cancelo Stones Mee
      Salah Bruno Son Grealish Gundogan
      DCL Antonio
      Martinez Bamford Dallas Coufal

    • Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      It's the only time I hope Cancelo no show

    • KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Looks like Cresswell does get the 3 BAPs after all then

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Coufal hit the bar... Well, these things happen.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Yup, have to move on

    • Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      14 more bench points ,season now up to 263 ederson and trent to go

    • tuturututu
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Mistake of captaining Antonio over Bruno cost me only 5 points which is not so bad after all
