Key Man United assets return but Greenwood and Mané benched at Old Trafford

Manchester United name a strong team to face Liverpool in their final match of Triple Gameweek 35.

Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m), Marcus Rashford (£9.6m) and Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) all return to the attack although Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) misses out on a third start in as many matches, named on the bench.

Paul Pogba (£7.6m) also comes back into the side and looks side to feature on the left-hand side of attacking midfield, which would see Rashford take up the right-hand position again.

Manchester United’s defence is also back to relative full-strength with Luke Shaw (£5.5m) and Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.7m) in the full-back roles either side of Victor Lindelof (£4.8m) and Eric Bailly (£4.8m), the latter standing in for an injured Harry Maguire (£5.6m).

Meanwhile, despite scoring against Southampton on Saturday, Sadio Mané (£11.7m) drops to the Liverpool bench to make way for Roberto Firmino (£9.0m).

That means a fifth-successive Premier League start for the versatile Diogo Jota (£7.0m) who, today, looks set to play in Mané’s left-wing role on the opposite flank to Mohamed Salah (£12.7m).

With Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) and Ben Davies (£4.7m) still on the sidelines alongside Virgil van Dijk (£6.2m), Joel Matip (£5.4m) and Joe Gomez (£5.2m), Nathaniel Phillips (£4.1m) and Rhys Williams (£4.0m) are Liverpool’s centre-back partnership for the second match in a row.

Triple Gameweek 35 Line-ups

Manchester United XI: Henderson; Shaw, Bailly, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Fred; Pogba, B Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani.

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Robertson, N Phillips, R Williams, Alexander-Arnold; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Jota, Firmino, Salah.

    132 (-4). Finally a decent BB chipping in 26 extra.

    an expected small red arrow.

    115 no chips, no hits.
    778 > 952 or.

    Looking at a -4 next week so pretty scared about a third red on the bounce.
    Staying in the top 1k is hard!

    1. AlternativeB

      Yup. I'm at 423 now but know I will have to do a -8 to get a full team

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 18 days ago

        i was 299 two weeks ago before the postponement game - only got 32 and screwed me over.
        i'd need a -8 to get a keeper but thinking of ignoring that.
        (also relying on J-Rod to play so that's a worry)

        1. AlternativeB
          • 1 Year

          Got 28 last round myself :/ Many changes for the next round for you?

          1. RogDog_jimmy

            Definitely : Bruno > Son.
            Probably : Fofana > Dallas
            Maybe (unlikely) : Mendy > Ederson

            would by a -8 for a real strong team -

            Ederson
            TAA, Coufal, Dallas
            Salah, Jota, Lingard, Son, J-Rod
            Kane, DCL

            1. AlternativeB
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Hmm. Really Bruno out before Fulham?

            2. AlternativeB
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Possible GW36 transfers

              Martinez
              Dallas TAA Johnson*
              Greenwood* Salah Jota Lingard
              Nacho* Kane DCL

              Forster, Bruno, Shaw, Holding

              Def: Nacho – Bamford
              Probably: Greenwood – Siggy/Raphina
              Probably: Johnson – 6.0/Mitchell

              Or could do as you do. Bruno - Son. (Gives more space to get a better defender... But then. Will probably go with TAA, Dallas, Shaw out the season and not 4 defenders)

    2. Little Red Lacazette

      Excellent OR. I'm trying to get into top 1k.

      1. AlternativeB
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Hard to stay up there. But mainly just don't sell of the "big hitters" :P. Got Nacho, Bruno, Shaw, Greenwood, Holding and Johnson not playing next round. Regretting getting rid of Mitchell

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I got rid of Mitchell for Phillips. Have 8 for 36. Hits time.

      2. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 18 days ago

        i've been top 1k since gw29 - 3 greens and now 3 reds since then.
        feels like it will be super close to stay up there by the end but i gotta hope!

      Getting out of the top 500k is much harder at his stage of the season! 😀

      1. AlternativeB
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        😀

  3. TheDragon

    Shaw’s super power is creating a million chances and never ever getting a attacking return

    It’s impressive

    1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah all while AWB is cleaning

      • djman102
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Shaw is the new Cancelo.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      116 and red arrow. Oh well, onto 36.

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Put a tenner on pool finshing top 4 right after Leicester won the other day

      Looking good for a profit

    4. sminkypinky

      Massive scores!
      Well done all. Not me though. ML lead lost.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Triple digits at least? ML lead can be had back easy, 3 more GWs.

      2. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Looks like you're on 113? How is that not massive?

    5. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      What is the best option here?
      a) Greenwood to Bale
      b) Maguire/Greenwood --> Dallas/Son for -4

      1. jonnybhoy
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        B

    6. Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      159 all out.

      1. Essan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Beat me, only 157 - and that off a BB as well 🙁

        Probably my highest week score ever 😀

    7. Milkman Bruno

        No city players for tomorrow night is going to suck

      • Milkman Bruno
          2 months, 18 days ago

        • Nightcrawler
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Salah TC over Bruno fail

          Pogba over Greenwood fail

          Robertson over TAA fail

          Lingard over Jota fail

          Still somehow ended on 132 points so will take it

        • gooberman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          2 months, 18 days ago

          This week demonstrating how its not how many points you get but how it compares to everyone else. People getting red arrows with ton+ scores.

        • Silecro
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Which one to bring for Rashford? (already have Greenwood, Jota, Salah, Lingard)

          A) Son
          B) Raphinha
          C) Anyone else

        • Bartowski
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          A or B?

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            C

            1. Bartowski
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              Only have 6.4

        • Coaly
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Looking to do Bruno Holding to Son Dallas.

          Any reason not to pull the trigger now? Any press conferences?

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 18 days ago

            just looking now - Son going up tonight it says.
            i'm doing bruno > son, usually like to wait but might have to do it.

        • Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Anyone considering Sterling for Fernandes? I have a feeling he will want to make a good impression before the CL final. Fixtures look quite good too.

          1. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 18 days ago

            never picking sterling again. too many fails for me.

          2. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Sterling is not starting the Champions League Final regardless.

            Foden & Mahrez on the wings.

            1. RogDog_jimmy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 18 days ago

              yeah the first team is pretty set it seems.
              only question is kdb fitness.
              sterling's had all year to show form - no reason to think he'll randomly turn it on now
              (though he well could)
              i'd prefer silva, gundo, mahrez and foden.

              1. Sgt Frank Drebin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Probably not, but I think he'll want to finish the season well regardless

        • Coaly
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Iheanacho to Bamford or Holding to Dallas?

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Both? A if only one.

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

          Best option?

          A) Bruno, Iheanacho > Son, Antonio

          B) Azpil, Iheanacho > Dallas, Antonio

          Cheers.

          1. Coaly
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Why Antonio over Bamford?
