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.

              That’s why I don’t get people banging on about Greenwood capt

              Rash and Bruno will play next game and may score

          Greenwood captain here. Makes up for my Maguire and Watkins FH picks.

          Decided not to do the -4 Maddison to Greenwood so I wasn’t transferring in a GW36 blanket. Already been planning a hit this week instead but we know how that’ll go.

            Done JWP instead of Greenwood for similar reasons plus I could afford Digne as well (4 up on that plus another game) and 9 players for this GW instead of 7. So hoping he gets no further points.

            Kasper Schmeichel on GW31 wild card has been an unmitigated disaster. Cannot wait to get rid for a hit this week.

                If Leicester can't beat the manu reseves (except for Greenwood) they dont deserve to be in the Champions League

                Went safe with Bruno C although I have to close a gap of about 30 points in my ML. I was worried about rotation. Thought Bruno was the most nailed on...

                1. Crystal Pulis
                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Bruno was always the logical choice.

                  1. Yome
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    Yes although FPL is also about risk taking. This was an opportunity to risk it on Greenwood C

                    1. Crystal Pulis
                      • 10 Years
                      2 months, 18 days ago

                      You have plenty of time to close a 30 point gap.

                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  Still another fixture to come

                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  I chose to go Salah over Bruno. You are still doing better.

                4. F_Ivanovic
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  It was obvious Bruno would only start 2 games. Ole pretty much said no-one is starting all 3. He was still a good C option regardless.

                Last minute decision of changing Benteke Greenwood Ward to DCL El-Ghazi Mitchell not looking good this GW. But should pay off in the next three. Right?

                            I was just hoping for one pen on FH... just one...

                            Best thing of having him in my FH team is that he prevented me from having Watkins instead of him, and thus not going for Rashford over Greenwood.
                            So there is that hahaha

                            Sadly I also have Castagne - there is no silver lining...

                            Who is more likely to get a cameo? Bruno or rashford or both? At thus stage i ll take an appearance point by c rashford.

                            I know its all about points, but Leicester does not deserve to play in CL.

                              They have been awful for a while and Rodgers teams always seem to bottle it when the going gets tough

                              Absolute rubbish - just look at the players we've lost. Justin, Barnes, Evans (recently) - all vital players. If we get the points then we deserve it.

                                Justin? Barnes?
                                All teams has their injuries. Brendan just got too much tinkering

                                  If, and maybe it's a big if, we get the points then we deserve it. Full stop.

                                Why ? Rather them than teams that spend millions on players who don't even get a game imo

                              Need to close a 35 point gap in my mini league.
                              Mini league leader has Salah, TAA, Son and Kane. Doesn't have any chips left.

                              Thoughts on this FH team?

                              Went heavy on Spurs attack.
                              No Antonio.
                              Aguero too risky?

                              Thanks.

                                      You must admit that you're like a stuck record. A lot of people are in the same boat and have had plenty of injuries all season but don't bang on about it.

                                        That because the bad luck keeps happening. I think everyone comes on here and talks about what's going well and what's going badly, it's an FPL forum.

                                    Unlucky mate, do you have Greenwood, I couldn't get him as needed to shift Leno and Rudi to play BB, who would have known Ryan would get injured and Leno would play lol what are the chances!

                                Greenwood(c) hauling me up the ranks and hopefully stopping this being my worst FPL OR.

                                  Glad I went with Greenwood (C) over Bruno but plenty of time left this GW for that to be turned around, so that goes the same for everyone cursing assets not playing today. Bruno could easily come on in the second half among others

                                    Yeah Bruno still has a game and maybe some part to play in the 2nd half. Greenwood only has some/all? of this 2nd half and some part in next games 2nd half

                                  This is perfectly set up to be one of those gameweeks where you score 80 points on the first half and 19 points in the second half of it

                                      Didn’t watch the first half, can’t believe the comments here after that complete howler. My 10 year old plays a bit of GK, she could have saved that all day.
