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.

    Is 100 points any good at this point?

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      No, should have at least 200 by now.

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...

        Mum's so proud. So, so proud.

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      130 should be presentable right now.

    5. Original - Wolves Ay We

      Should be ashamed to even ask.

    6. Captain Haddock
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Still have Martinez, Guaita, Ward, Mitchell, TAA, Fernandes, Greenwood, Salah, Jota and DCL to play.

      And Watkins not to play

      1. Captain Haddock
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Plus Digne, forgot him.

      At this point I'd say you're below where I would want to be. Have you tried following the scoutcast and scout picks to improve your team selection?

    Perfect night for United, rested players, Leicester in the CL . . .

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Unless it's a penalty he's unlikely to score or have you not been watching the last two months?

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years

        Ha, ha.

      Vardy has been the disappointment of the season for me

      1. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        He's coat me my ML the last few weeks, brought him in on a WC and captained for first two weeks, rest is history

        1. Lindelol
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Still it was good that I retained him on FH over KAne and Watkins

          1. Reece’s Pieces
              2 months, 20 days ago

              That’s where I’m at too. Glad it’s just on the FH

        Ndidi is very underrated, probably the second best in the league in that CDM destroyer role behind Kante.

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

        • 4 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Excellent Leicester are beating United 2-1, I have 3 Leicester players so I must be scoring well... Oh no wait absolutely everyone is outscoring me with 1 United player.

        1. Milkman Bruno
            2 months, 20 days ago

            That Greenwood goal and Bruno appearance pulled my rank down by 8K!

            1. Little Red Lacazette
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              No Greenwood?

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 20 days ago

                Changed Benteke + Greenwood + Ward to DCL + El Ghazi + Mitchell last minute. Did not feel right to have Benteke in the 11.

          6. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            Lol Roy such a troll, as if he’s started Mitchell for both games in the double after being seemingly out of favour for like 90% of the season

            1. Super Saints
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 20 days ago

              This! I presume he benched Ward though?

              1. justaguy9
                  2 months, 20 days ago

                  No ward starts

                  1. Super Saints

                Mitchell got his place back before the DGW

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 20 days ago

                  One appearance not enough to go by, if anything suggested he would be benched in the double even more

              3. Hulk Smash
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years

                  Like Aguero thought that would mean he’d get gametime to see off the club

                Somebody from. Leicester are gonna give away a handball penalty in injury time, arent they?

              • Bookkeeper
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 20 days ago

                rather than win the game and put the pressure on City, OGS, plays a weakened side and focusses on the game against Pool. Loser mentality, he's no winner.

                1. ivantys
                    2 months, 20 days ago

                    Put what pressure? There's nothing for them to play for lol

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

                      didn't he say he wanted to obtain as many points as possible to be closer to City's points total. Seems Man Utd are more obsessed with getting one up on Liverpool.

                      1. ivantys
                          2 months, 20 days ago

                          Not saying it's right to do that... Rest half the team is ok but resting the entire team when I thought this league had integrity. First time i've seen this, even teams which had nothing to play for would play full strength sides against teams who were fighting relegation or european spots. This is a disgrace actually.

                      I agree.

                      jeez, cant rely on utd to beat leicester at home, yes they rested tons of players but leicester rested vardy and had their best defender (evans) not playing.

                      1. Milkman Bruno

                            So basically everything is decided now.
                            Loads of random rotation now everywhere for the last gameweeks

                              Leicester's remaining fixtures become especially hard to call.
