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.

    EPL is so boring this season. Title race and relegation race already over with 3 games left
    LA Liga is much more entertaining this season. Title race, relegation spots and UCL spots all up for grabs

      EPL Title race was over 2 months back actually

        Title race was over simply because of the strength and depth of City's squad. Post Christmas it was inevitable.

      La Liga is garbage. Yes it's going to the end but the quality has been so poor. The EPL has been poor as well and the title was simply won by having the strongest squad not the best team - but it's a throwaway year for everyone - should forever have an * by it.

      That's because the plandemic played a role in the season being crap.

      EPL was boring this season, but La Liga is boring every season. Madrid and Barca every year, maybe Atleti if they get lucky.

        Literally by design.

    Spewing the Zaha punt didn't pay off. Would have been great for mini leagues as a sole owner.

      Ditto. The Milo pen miss for Zaha assist was a real kick in the teeth, then the last minute yellow to boot. Doh.

    Best option ?

    A) Ings + Son

    B) Antonio + Pererria + 4 points
