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.

    Maguire ankle ligament damage, BBC

    1. Hooky
      • 6 Years

      Was it caused by a BBC?

      🙁

  4. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years

    Leicester need a new keeper, Kasper's errors have gone unnoticed all season.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Not all season apparently.

  5. Tango74

    Hopefully he haul Greenwood off soon so he plays in next game ??

    1. Hooky
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Probably get 60 mins today and 30 in the next game

  6. Mika-eel

    Happy that Greenwood has turned around his season.

    Such a good player.

    1. Bookkeeper
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      end of season wonder, tired legs an all that

      1. Mika-eel
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Will remember that for next season!

        Straight in my team for the last 10 games.

  7. KAPTAIN KANE

    Fuming Lindelof and Bruno not starting but elated with Greenwood the legend!

    1. Tango74
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Why fuming most assumed that. They would only start 2

    2. Slouch87
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Incredible the lack of realism on here.

      1. Leaf

        Just been reading, mentalness

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years

      I am sure you never believed in this TGW crap.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Given how close we are to end of the season I actually did, and with Maguire injury I thought Lindelof was nailed on for all 3

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 8 days ago

          4 games in 8 days is mental. Plus EL final.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 8 days ago

            I’d do it 🙂

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 8 days ago

              Hahaha! Me too actually.

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      JWP masterclass this evening

    2. Mika-eel
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Just need Forster to start for an extra 1 or 2 points.

      Every point so vital now.

      1. justaguy9
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Need a ward clean sheet

        1. Mika-eel
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 8 days ago

          That will be a disaster as I have Benteke.

  8. The VAR Team
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Who else went Rashford over Greenwood cause he played in Europa? 🙁

    1. Leaf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      And rashford will probably play Thursday and Greenwood won’t

      1. The VAR Team
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        True, but with Greenwood's finishing it was a silly move in hindsight 🙂

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 8 days ago

          Especially with his legs.

          1 2 Leicester City

    2. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      I captained Rashy over Greenwood 🙁 but still half the GW to go for United

    3. justaguy9
      4 months, 8 days ago

      I went both but c rashford

  9. Ginkapo FPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Has anyone mentioned that Greenwood was the obvious captain pick yet?

    1. Slouch87
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Ha ha . Probably but I'm not wading through the drivel to find out.

    2. Reece’s Pieces
      4 months, 8 days ago

      That can only be judged at the end of the gameweek

  10. Milkman Bruno
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Cavani warming up

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Hopefully Shaw and Bruno soon as well.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Those 2.

  11. Hect.OR 98th
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Hope Zaha puts in some effort. Was bitten by him earlier in the season yet still succumbed to DGW myopia. I don't think I've ever had him at the right time, and I don't think I'll ever learn.

    1. Reece’s Pieces
      4 months, 8 days ago

      He looked very grumpy the last game. He tends to do something every third game and this is that third game ...

      1. Hect.OR 98th
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Is that the trick? Maybe I've always had him for the crap two.

        1. Reece’s Pieces
          4 months, 8 days ago

          Prob not but I read that recently and saw this was the third game so we will soon see ...

  12. Fudgy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Zaha, you must score a brace and assist Cahill.

    1. Hect.OR 98th
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      No wonder you're losing your ML. You've seen my bad choice mid and raised it with a crap defender

  13. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 8 days ago

    Pogba, Fernandes & Cavani warming up.

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Woohoo!

    2. justaguy9

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Sounds like Rashy coming on with Cavani.

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

  18. justaguy9
    4 months, 8 days ago

    1. Reece’s Pieces
      4 months, 8 days ago

      Cavani and Rash on the way

      1. Mika-eel
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Have him too. Was so frustrating last game. At least he was getting into good positions.

      2. justaguy9
        4 months, 8 days ago

        Lets go ward! Hoping for a dull 0-0

    2. Utopsis

      Gutted I swapped Mitchell for Lingard last minute - only because Roy led me down the garden path

  20. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Cahill misses out.

    McCarthy benched for both teams.

    1. justaguy9
      4 months, 8 days ago

      If u don't want nacho for the last 2 games then yes

  24. justaguy9

  25. Hazz

    Greenwood about to be rested for Liverpool 😉

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 8 days ago

      He was the obvious captain with his youthful recovery.

      I was just burnt on a 2 point punt on him earlier with the armband a few weeks back, away at Leeds.

  26. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Time to shine Rashford.

    2. Hect.OR 98th
      • 11 Years

      He'll get tripped by the physio and get a penalty as the other players head for the showers.

  28. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years

    Cavani cavalry and Rashford incoming...

  29. Scholes Out Forever
