Greenwood only Man United asset to retain place as Solskjaer rotates heavily

As feared, Manchester United bring a heavily rotated side into their second Triple Gameweek 35 fixture.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes 10 changes from the team that beat Aston Villa on Sunday, Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) the only asset to retain his starting berth against Leicester City.

After featuring on the flanks of attacking midfield at Villa Park, the 19-year-old leads the line on Tuesday evening with Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) and Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) on the bench.

They are joined there by Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m), Paul Pogba (£7.6m), Luke Shaw (£5.5m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.7m) and Dean Henderson (£5.2m).

Premier League debutants Amad Diallo (£5.4m) and Anthony Elanga provide the width this evening, either side of Juan Mata (£5.8m), who makes his first league start since Gameweek 9.

Nemanja Matic (£4.7m) and Donny van de Beek (£6.6m) look set for central midfield duties while Solskjaer has named a back-four of Brandon Williams (£4.2m), Eric Bailly (£4.8m), Axel Tuanzebe (£4.1m) and Alex Telles (£5.3m) in front of David de Gea (£5.3m).

Leicester are in much strong first-team shape with James Maddison (£7.3m) and Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) the only two to drop the bench.

As expected, Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) and Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.3m) lead the line with Ayoze Pérez (£6.0m) taking on a number 10 role in front of Wilfred Ndidi (£4.8m) and Youri Tielemans (£6.4m).

Luke Thomas (£4.1m) and Marc Albrighton (£5.2m) are the left and right wing-backs respectively with Timothy Castagne (£5.8m) tucked into a back-three with Caglar Söyüncü (£5.3m) and Wesley Fofana (£5.0m).

Triple Gameweek 35 Line-ups

Manchester United XI: De Gea; B Williams, Bailly, Tuanzebe, Telles; Matic, van de Beek; Diallo, Mata, Elanga; Greenwood.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel; Söyüncü, Fofana, Castagne; Thomas, Ndidi, Tielemans, Albrighton; Pérez; Vardy, Iheanacho.

      Still time for Bruno to match or overtake what points Greenwood has gained this game

      Nah - just a very good finish. If he'd been further over his near post would have been open.

    Congrats anyone who put C on him, wow! Happy I own him at least.

      Myself 🙂 I had to pick a differential captain pick since I’m trailing by 60 points to my ML rival

    Greenwood may just get at least 30min of playtime vs Liverpool too, undroppable

      Granted I don’t know a lot but surely all rules of sports science would say don’t play a professional game of football 48 hours after you just played. Greenwood owner here.

    Flash score giving Vardy the assist?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Wrong. Tielemans. Vardy got a call and left it for Thomas.

    Just happy to own Greenwood! Even with the double move hit involving Watkins in, he’s making up for it all on his own!

    Congrats to any captainers. I assume his EO is less than 100?

      Chris Sutton really didn't want that goal to stand 😆

      1. BRFC1883
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        He’s such a knob. What did he say?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          He kept saying "did it just brush off Diallo's hand?" during every replay even though there was nothing to suggest it had

            I love radio 5 but Sutton is horrendous.

      Terrible from Schmeichel

      Going with his feet when he had so much time

        2 months, 20 days ago

        Capt DCL here because only made it for the transfer. Didn't make it for team selection.
        Castagne on 3rd bench.
        Good news Holding was in place of him.

    • JONALDINHO

      Greenwood yesss. Now Nacho(C) do your thing. Tonight we feast!!!

    • Revival

      Went with 2 Utd defenders when the obvious move should have been Lingard > Greenwood.

      Leicester are so so bad. Will probably keep a clean sheet against Chelsea and Tottenham now after I've sold them.

    • Magic Zico

      Greenwood lad, what a boy!

        Brilliant news that!

    • Thomas Magnum
      • 5 Years

      How much do we think Greenwood costs next season

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        At least 8 - probably 8.5

        1. Fer Fuch's Ake
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Maybe reclassified as a Forward 8.0-8.5 about right

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Sounds about right, will be interesting where he stands in people’s thinking come drafts next season

      2. justaguy9
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I guess same. 7.5 or maybe 8

      3. justaguy9
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Really regret c rashford over Greenwood.
