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.

      Was it caused by a BBC?

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

    1. The Knights Template

      Not all season apparently.

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

      1. Hooky
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Probably get 60 mins today and 30 in the next game

    • Mika-eel

      Happy that Greenwood has turned around his season.

      Such a good player.

      1. Bookkeeper

        2 months, 18 days ago

        end of season wonder, tired legs an all that

        1. Mika-eel
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Will remember that for next season!

          Straight in my team for the last 10 games.

    • KAPTAIN KANE

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

      1. Tango74
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Why fuming most assumed that. They would only start 2

          Incredible the lack of realism on here.

          I am sure you never believed in this TGW crap.

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 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!
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

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

                I’d do it 🙂

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

          Every point so vital now.

          1. justaguy9
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Need a ward clean sheet

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                That will be a disaster as I have Benteke.

        3. The VAR Team
          • 1 Year

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

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            And rashford will probably play Thursday and Greenwood won’t

            1. The VAR Team
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 18 days ago

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

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Especially with his legs.

                1 2 Leicester City

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

          3. justaguy9
              2 months, 18 days ago

              I went both but c rashford

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

            1. Slouch87
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

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

                  Hopefully Shaw and Bruno soon as well.

                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
                    2 months, 18 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
                      2 months, 18 days ago

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

                          2 months, 18 days ago

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

                    Zaha, you must score a brace and assist Cahill.

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

                          Sounds like Rashy coming on with Cavani.

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

                                Cahill misses out.

                                Is it worth to do nacho to bamford (-4) or just play davis for 1 point..

                                Dont have keeper also..

                                      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.
