Seven-time top 10k finisher Zophar on Man Utd’s best Triple Gameweek 35 players

One of the most consistent FPL managers in the game, Zophar, is on course for his eighth top 10k finish. Here, he takes an in-depth look at Manchester United’s assets ahead of their Triple Gameweek.


It’s been a surreal 12 hours.

My own team, Chelsea, have trounced Real Madrid and progressed to the Champions League final, a scenario that many of us would have deemed impossible midway through the season.

As tempted as I am to wax lyrical for another 1,000 words about the Blues, I cannot ignore the elephant in the room: Manchester United’s TRIPLE Gameweek!

The Manchester United v Liverpool fixture being postponed in Gameweek 34 hit all of us hard and myself included, as I had five players in that fixture. While this immediate, surprise rescheduling gives us an opportunity to get some of those points back, the schedule indicates that it might not be that simple. Let’s get stuck into it.

I’m writing this piece before United have played in the UEFA Europa League, and while the Red Devils carry a four-goal advantage going into the second leg, I don’t see them fielding a weakened team as that would offer Roma a glimmer of hope – which is the last thing they’d want to do. I expect the likes of Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m), Edinson Cavani (£7.9m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) to start, with early substitutions the likely route to rest.

The Red Devils play a total of four games in a space of seven days, a schedule that is largely unprecedented and given that it is at the tail-end of the season, when players are already mentally and physically fatigued from a congested schedule, rotation is inevitable. 

Motivation

Manchester United are in a firm position to clinch UEFA Champions League qualification, sitting nine points clear of fifth placed West Ham. With their superior goal difference, the Red Devils effectively need just three points to seal it. So there’s no real need to flog players and risk injury with such short turnarounds. There is some merit to finishing as high up the table as possible, too, so that has to be factored in as well. 

Scheduling

The turnaround time from the Europa League to the Villa fixture isn’t too bad. After all, it’s the usual Thursday-Sunday schedule that they’ve handled all season. A full rest since their last Europa League game due to the Liverpool postponement would also help in terms of energy levels.

The curveball here is the next two fixtures, against more formidable opposition on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Now, do United consider resting players for Villa to prioritise the Leicester and Liverpool games or do they go for the more ‘winnable’ points? I think they go for the former as the game against Leicester is almost a six-pointer, as it would open up the gap against the Foxes. The Liverpool fixture is always a big one too because of the rivalry. It’s not ideal when you think about captaincy for Fernandes, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he played all three. 

Which players are the most likely to see minutes?

Harry Maguire (£5.5m), Fernandes and Rashford are the only players to feature in every single league match for United this season, while only Maguire has played every minute. 

On this basis, you would assume that the most nailed-on asset in defence is obviously Maguire. I think Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.7m) is also relatively safe for starts but I would worry about Luke Shaw (£5.4m) with Alex Telles (£5.3m) available and the Englishman’s past history with muscle injuries. Victor Lindelof (£4.8m) doesn’t fill me with confidence with Eric Bailly (£4.8m) around, either.

Fernandes is the obvious attacking pick, having seen the most minutes of any of their attackers. For the next best pick, let’s have a closer look at the minutes over the last seven Gameweeks rather than the season.

The likes of Wan-Bissaka, Shaw, Lindelof, Maguire and Dean Henderson (£5.2m) have played the entirety the last seven Gameweeks, with Fernandes missing out by just one minute.

Rashford’s game-time has been managed to an extent due to the niggling injury he has been carrying and he’s struggled to play two games a week, let alone four, so I am not tempted by him there. We have often seen Paul Pogba (£7.6m) play on the left, as well, which reduces the appeal of Rashford on the right.

It is encouraging to see Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) feature in all five of their last league matches for an average of 75 minutes each. At just 19 years of age, the youngster can recover quicker than most in the United squad and should see a decent amount of minutes across the three matches, especially given Rashford’s struggles. 

Attacking stats

My team

I’m sitting with two free transfers and £0.2m in the bank. As it stands, I have four players who will blank in Gameweek 36, and Rhian Brewster (£4.3m). 

My plan is to sell Son Heung-min (£9.6m) for Greenwood this week and roll the other transfer. Then, next week, I plan on reversing that move and bringing Gareth Bale (£9.1m) in for Fernandes. I do think the Red Devils will play a weakened team in Gameweek 38 with the Europa League final in mind, so I might get only the Fulham fixture out of Fernandes. This would also allow me to fund Brewster to Michail Antonio (£6.4m) for a -4. This would allow me to bench Kelechi Iheanacho, Shaw and AntonioRudiger and have a strong squad for any unexpected rotation in the final weeks. 

I know there’s talk – and justifiably so – about this Triple Gameweek being a trap and whatnot, but this is only the second time I’ve seen it happen in my 12 years of playing FPL and I just cannot bring myself not to max out on it. In five years’ time, I don’t want to be saying that I had only two players when Manchester United had a Triple Gameweek, irrespective of the outcome. 

Enjoy the chaos. One thing is for sure, there will never be a season like this again.

Thanks for reading.

  1. United options and potential minutes played
    Brimble82
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    So, yesterday we were all over Greenwood as a strong Utd option for the TGW.
    But given that both AWB&Shaw were rested from half-time and Greenwood played the full 90, does that reduce G’wood’s allure and increase the interest in a double up in defence?

    Two of AWB/Shaw/Maguire plus Bruno could see more mins.

    Thoughts?

    1. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      I went Rash over Greenwood as he has a better chance of playing 2/3 IMO. Both could easily haul though, so no way of guessing.

      I'm seeing the best United combo as: Bruno, Rashford, Maguire atm.

      1. Brimble82
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Rash looked rusty last night though no?
        Doesn’t fill me with confidence.

        I’m leaning towards super dullard of Maguire, AWB & Bruno.
        I’m tempted by Shaw, as I think he has the highest ceiling of the back line, but also think he’s most likely to be rotated as in Telles they have a ready made alternative, whereas Williams isn’t the same level of competition for AWB.

        Feels wrong not to back attack in a TGW though!

    2. Zladan
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Maguire and Bruno should be the first picks.

      Then you choose between AWB/Shaw/Cavani/Greenwood..

      I’m probably going for Pogba though. Mix it up.

      1. Brimble82
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Agree re the first two slots.
        Not sure I’d include Cavani in the shortlist.
        I don’t think his fitness allows for 3 games in 8 days. And as he already had the best part of a full game last night, I think he may only get one.

        Pogba is a really interesting shout though. Could be a real catapult up the ranks if that comes off.
        Cap him as well for the ultimate spring?

        1. Zladan
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 20 days ago

          I cannot captain anyone other than Bruno unfortunately.

          We saw what happened when Kane was TC’d in the last DGW... fully expecting Bruno EO to be very high.

          1. Brimble82
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 20 days ago

            Don’t get me wrong, my armband is firmly strapped to the tatt’d arm with Bruno. But…

            Surely your point on Kane is exactly why a differential cap could have a huge impact.

            We all (myself included) followed dutifully along captaining Harry to send him into the hallowed 200% territory. Only for Son/Bale to show him up as he stinks up our team with a 4pt captain blank.

            Imagine the euphoria if Pogba does a ‘Bale to Bruno’s Kane’!

            (I’m not trying to persuade you - just highlighting the upside…. As he slinks away with his cowardly Bruno armband!)

            1. Pompel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              4 months, 20 days ago

              The upside is as big as the downside. Kane blanking shows that it's impossible to call for any given single GW, too much variance even for the top guns. Captaincy is down to luck, but by following the herd you can at least expect that to even out over the season

              1. Brimble82
                • 2 Years
                4 months, 20 days ago

                Yeah agree.
                I’m 60 points behind my 9yo son (I don’t want to talk about it) and he has TC’d Bruno - so my hands are pretty much tied.

                1. Pompel
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  4 months, 20 days ago

                  :-p

        2. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 20 days ago

          Pogba could be a shrewd one. Already had Bruno + AWB, went with Greenwood for third spot, since he's ranking high up for the attacking stats.

          1. Brimble82
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 20 days ago

            Last nights full game doesn’t put you off at all?

            1. Pompel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              4 months, 20 days ago

              It's a concern , yes, but don't trust alternatives Zaha or JWP as much. And with TGW, I'm hoping he starts two anyway. Also I figure he's a better choice to keep for GW's 37-38 than Zaha or JWP

        3. Forgetmeknot
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 20 days ago

          I’ve gone cavani as it allows me an easy route to salah but I’ll be happy if he gets 150-180 minutes across the 3 games - 2 goals last night so form is there

          1. Pompel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 20 days ago

            Cavani a good differential choice in isolation , but better alternatives up front (DCL, Watkins) than in midfield (Zaha, JWP)

            1. Brimble82
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 20 days ago

              Agree with this.
              My frontline is harder to break into, whereas I feel there’s more scope in midfield.

              I mean, 5v3, so…!

    3. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      I've been hulked!
      (Just be cool. Just be cool. Just. Be. COOL!)

      [Run's around the room screaming with arms waving in the air!]

    4. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      After Ole's comments about Maguire, do we now think that Shaw is the way to go? Or is there the risk that Shaw gets hauled off before the 60th minute mark, whereas Maguire might miss one of the 3 games but play the full 90x in the other two?

      1. Brimble82
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah, it’s yet another layer to it isn’t it!
        Shaw & AWB more rested.
        But are we completely overthinking, and is it just a case that all of the (‘key’) Utd assets get two starts each!?!

        1. Lemongrab
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 20 days ago

          Might just toss a coin between Shaw and Maguire and hope for the best, it's almost impossible to call.

          1. Brimble82
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 20 days ago

            Agree.
            That’s why I’m almost more tempted by 433 with two defenders rather than 343 with one plus G’wood.

            Bruno locked in regardless.

  2. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Mendy
    Trent - Rudiger - Holding
    Salah - Bruno - Rashford - Jota
    Kane - DCL - Iheanacho

    (Forster) - (Bowen - Coady - Amartey) - 0.2 ITB - 1 FT

    Gtg and save transfer, or anything worth changing? Cheers and GL all!

    1. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Looks good. Holding the only ??
      Might be fun to roll the dice and get Palace cover. Ward/Mitchell.
      Great fixtures but still Palace.

  3. prichardson311

    Would you do Lingz to Jwp for -4?

    1. Frucke

      No, im holding. Westhams fixtures are great

    3. WHUFCSmith23

      I would say yes if you are planning to bring Antonio in as West Ham cover

  6. Ambitious, but rubbish...
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    What would you do here:

    Meslier
    Digne - TAA - Castagne
    Salah - Greenwood - Siggy - Son
    Kane - Nacho - DCL

    Subs: GK 3.9 fodder - Dallas - Alioski - ESR

    Planning to play BB, got 1 FT and 0.5 ITB

    Would you do:

    a) GK 3.9 fodder -> Forster
    b) GK 3.9 fodder -> Ryan at Arsenal
    c) GK 3.9 fodder + Dallas > Guaita + Lindelof (for a -4)

    Currently leaning towards c. Would welcome any input, or other suggestions too.

    Cheers

    1. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      I like C. Though Lindelof is probably the most vulnerable of the back 4. Assume you can’t stretch to any of Maguire/Shaw/AWB?

    Hello - my keepers are Leno an Forster. 2/3 gameweek both have been benched.
    What shall I do?

    A. Bring in someone this week (BB)
    B. Change GW36 when Leno blanks
    C. Ride out the season with the risk

    My team: Play bench boost this GW: 3 transfers made (-4)
    Martinez
    TAA, Rüdiger, Digne
    Pereira, Zaha, Salah, Greenwood
    Kane, Antonio, Bamford

    Bench: Guaita, Holding, Maddison, Coufal

    Thoughts??
    Is it worth to take a -8 hit for one of these transfer?
    a) Pereira --> Sigurdsson/El Ghazi

    What about Holding does he play at least one game?

    1. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      El Ghazi is an interesting maverick pick. Good luck dude

  17. Andy Mac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Help pls guys. Would you play Rüdiger and risk a benching or bring in Joel Ward for Holding for free and play him as palace have better fixtures and he is likely to play both games against Sheffield and Southampton?

    Cheers all!

    1. Brimble82
      • 2 Years

      Would Ward be your only Palace coverage?
      If so, I’d do it.
      Tuchel has shown that he is happy to rotate all of his back line and the fixtures don’t scream CS to me.

      Palace have a good shot at at least 1CS (sorry SHU fans), so probably worth the risk.

        Yeah just Ward for Palace coverage and also gives me an additional player for next week. I’m very tempted as think Rudi will only get one game (prob city) and there may be more upside with Ward but who knows what Tuchel will do??!! Cheers mate!

    Option A or B guys?

    A. M. Pereira + Saiss > Greenwood + Mitchell -4
    B. Saiss > Maguire

    G2G for dgw 35? WC 36

    Martinez
    TAA, Shaw, Digne
    Salah, Bruno, Bale, Greenwood
    DCL, Nacho, Watkins

    Areola, Holding, Lingard, Dallas

    1. Zladan

      If you WC in 36, then I’d not have Bale for a SGW this week.

      1. Hig1990

        Already took a -4 to get rid of kane and son for DCL and salah so i'm happy to keep spurs coverage vs leeds.

    Which one is better?

    A Forster, Burn
    B Guaita, Mitchell - 4

    1. Brimble82

      B

    Anything worth a hit with this defence, got 0.9 m in bank ( no defender that blank next gw)?
    Azpilicueta Coady Dallas TAA Holding

    Is McCarthy to Forster worth a hit on BB ? The 0.4m ITB would allow me to get both Dinge & DCL

    A) Guaita, Dinge, Bamford
    B) Guaita, Veltman, DCL
    C) Forster, Dinge, DCL (for a hit)

    1. Zladan
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      McCarthy starts again though no?

        1. Zladan
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 20 days ago

          Ah okay thanks! I’m relieved as an owner as I’ve Mendy & Forster to choose from in 36.

            Too big a risk then. So it's A or B

    Hi all, what is everyone looking like without taking hits in terms of a starting 11 for GW36?

    I'm currently looking at 7 with a view of getting 9 players out if I can

    1. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      11 without hits but taking -8 this week

  24. james 101
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Be honest. What score do you think you will achieve this game week?

    1. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      112

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      45

    3. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Ideally 60 points more than my ML leader!

      [wakes up from TGW induced dreamland]

      Three figures would be nice.

    4. bitm2007

      RMT is stating 135 for me on BB but I haven't scored a ton for three years so am taking it will a large pinch of salt.

  25. jia you (The No BS League -…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Locked & Loaded, GL for the TGW all 🙂

    Martinez
    Trent Shaw Lindelof Konsa
    Salah JWP Siggy
    Cavani(C) Kane Iheanacho
    (Forster Son Cancelo Lingard)

    1. Holmes

      Need more DGW players 😉

          would be a nice week to have it with the Forster news... ah well

  26. HVT
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Watkins or DCL?

    1. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      DCL

      1. HVT
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Any major reason?

  27. aapoman

    Thoughts on Greenwood vs Rashford if money is not an issue? I honestly think Rashford could be the better pick this week since Greenwood already played 90min in Europa.

    1. HVT
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Greenwood has form, averages 75m of last few.
      Rashy looks injured, doesn’t look sharp and I’d nearly fancy GW over 2 games rather than MR over 3

    2. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      All depends on whether Rashford was on the bench for rotation or because he isn't fully over his injury yet. I'd think Greenwood is possibly the safer pick.

    3. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Possibly comes down to if you are chasing or holding. If chasing, then Rashford is definitely the bigger gamble if it pays off.

  28. Rolls-Royce

    Rate my FH35 team:

    Allison
    TAA Digne Castagne Shaw
    Salah Burno Greenwood
    Vardy DCL Nachos

    1. John Nerdelbaum
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      lovely
      I'm really tempted with double Pool defence

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Cheers.

  29. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    I need to bench 1, leaning toward Rudiger even though he has a double due to fixtures and rotation risk.

    A) Rudiger
    B) Lingard
    C) Son
    D) Kane

    1. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      A

    Morning all. Thoughts on this? I will be Bench boost. One downside is only 7 (plus 1FT) for GW36.

    Lingard+Coady >> Greenwood+Ward (-4)?

    Mendy
    TAA. Shaw. Rudiger. Holding
    Salah. Bruno. Jota
    Kane. DCL. Nacho
    (Forster, ASM, Lingard, Coady)

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Not a fan of only having 7+1 next week, if it were me I'd probably roll and use 2FT next week to get 10 team out and hope that Forster plays.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Sorry didn’t see this. If I get Greenwood and Ward and potentially get 3 extra games this GW though?

        1. stu92
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 20 days ago

          True, but Greenwood probably won't play all 3 so more realistically 2. So then does Greenwood outscore Lingard over 2, or Ward in 3 outscore Coady over 2? I suppose it depends on how you look at it, big picture it maybe all levels out but I personally always like to be pretty covered from week to week rather than hitting certain weeks heavy and being left short in others.
