Chelsea v Man Utd team news: Alonso starts as Mount, Havertz and Ronaldo benched

In the final match of Gameweek 13, Chelsea take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, with Fantasy interest mostly centred around the hosts backline.

Kick-off is at 16:30 BST.

Chelsea, who have conceded just four goals in 12 league matches this season, make four changes from Gameweek 12, with Marcos Alonso (£5.6m), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.4m), Hakim Ziyech (£7.3m) and Timo Werner (£8.6m) replacing Ben Chilwell (£5.9m), N’Golo Kante (£4.9m), Mason Mount (£7.5m) and Kai Havertz (£8.0m).

That means another start for Reece James (£6.2m), who has four goals and four assists from nine Premier League appearances this term, plus Trevor Chalobah (£4.8m). As a result, Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m) is once again a substitute, along with Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) who is back from injury.

The headline news for Man Utd, who will have Michael Carrick in the dugout, is that Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) drops to the bench with Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m), Jadon Sancho (£8.9m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.4m) preferred in the attacking roles.

GAMEWEEK 13 LINE-UPS

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Alonso, Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi, Werner

Subs: Arrizabalaga, Christensen, Lukaku, Pulisic, Saul, Barkley, Mount, Azpilicueta, Havertz

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles, Fred, Matic, McTominay, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      not for me

    2. Teror
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I'm thinking of captaining Trent. Neverton not looking likely to score

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Not for me either

    4. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      It should be considered atleast

  5. Zenith UK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Pick one please;

    A) Livra > Alonso (0.1M off of James because of price rise).
    B) Duffy & Livra > Johnson & James (-4)?

  6. Pep Roulette

    Hey fam! What would you do here? GK is an issue, Mbeumo is another and then there's the weak bench! No WC remaining either!

    1 FT

      Yeah

    2. Teror
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I have the exact same team except for Ramsdale and James over Alonso

      1. Teror
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Oh wait and Vardy instead of Kane

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Sounds a better team than mine

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Nice. Although some fires starting to appear with Gallagher, Kane, Antonio

        1. Teror
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I don't think Antonio is a fire really. The others arent at all. I think because Antonio has shown his worth previously and he's got good fix coming up he's not a fire. If you had Buemo then thats a fire because he's been utter shite all season and has shown no signs of promise whatsoever.

  9. Feed tha Sheep
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Bench one?

    A. Toney (Spurs)
    B. Jimi (Burnley)
    C. Raphina (Palace)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Got to be A I guess

    2. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      If you’re considering to bench Jimmy vs Burnley at home then what’s the point To have him

  10. Milkman Bruno
    • 1 Year

    Made my transfers there and this is how I will line up for the next gw.

    Sanchez
    Trent, Cancelo, James, Alonso, Reguillon
    Salah, Jota, Zaha, Raphina
    Lukaku

    Steele, Toney, Bissouma, Davis 0ft 1.1itb

    67 from 10 men. I will take it. 4th green arrow on the bounce.

  12. You’re on mute
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Foden+White>Alonso+Bilva?
    Exact money so now or not. Or get Gundog later
    A. Yes
    B. No

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Do you have Jota ?

    2. You’re on mute
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Yes

  13. Freshy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Feel like since Ive held Foden for 2 DNP GWs I must hold on.

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Do you reckon he starts midweek ?

  14. Zenith UK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Given their fixture swing is anyone, bare with me, considering Man Utd assets?

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Whom would you get ? Ronaldo is the only one and he’s too expensive.

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Honestly, MAYBE, Sancho, I need to watch the highlights, but he's the only other I'd consider other than Ronaldo

        1. Zenith UK
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Greenwood when back from Covid?

  15. Kryptonite666
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Guaita

    TAA Cancelo James Alonso (Livramento)
    Salah Son Foden ESR (Mbeumo)
    Vardy Toney (Perica)

    A. Is Toney + Mbeumo to Dennis + Jota for a -4 worth it ? Dennis and ESR will rotate.

    B. Other alternative is to transfer ESR + Mbeumo to Jota + Gilmour. Weakens bench a little - with Livramento and Gilmour as bench.

      Hi everyone

    • 1justlookin

      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Was ready to give up for the season after owning Son and Kane for the last 2 GW's. However 've went up 30k places so not all bad considering.
