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

      Get Alonso, they said. He would bag goals and never concede, they said. 😀

        Who's they and who said this?

          All the FPL youtubers. Mostly the clueless lad Andy

            Well FPL is all about taking opportunities like this, still glad I got him as my hit has worked out brilliantly, good games to come for Alonso

            1. Ibralicious
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Fair enough

      2. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        No one said this.

        1. Ibralicious
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I did not listen, sir. Not bringing a defensive liability into my team, no thank you.

            When did Alonso change his name to Jorginho?

      4. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        yet you were asking on here whether to get Alonso 😉

        1. Ibralicious
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          And look at the difference. You picked him up and I didn't

        Hope no one took a hit for Chilwell -> James

    • Ibralicious

      Ragnick's gegenpressing is on another level. Chelsea look shellshocked atm

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

        Lol

    • lilmessipran

      Ragnickball for the win

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Putting ball on the end of a managers name is not inspired use of language

        1. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Ginkapoball sounds so mesmerizing though

    • Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Who would you rather downgrade to fund Allan to Jota

      A) Benteke (have Gallagher)
      Or
      B) Toney

      Thanks guys

    • Dr. Rog

      Sancho 8.9m. Seems a bit pricey

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

        Not going to get gifted that every week

      2. Pukki Party

      When Lindelof stops your attack, you're bad!

      Dias rested next gw? Feel like getting Alonso for next one

    • GoonerSteve
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      What could have been!

      It was between Lamptey and Jota, or Alonso and ESR and I chose the latter.

      Oh well.

      Who will do more minutes in December, Alonso or Chalobah?

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

        Alonso

      2. Salah’s Sonnet

        Alonso

      Werner. See me after the game

    • g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Werner is not a striker

      1. Mr. O'Connell

      2. Hiiler
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        In Bundesliga he was good. Seems that premier league is not right place for him or Chelsea.

      City's fixtures looks so tempting coming up and the team playing well.

      Want to triple up but as always unknown rotation. Have Foden Concelo at the moment..

      The fallacy of having non starting out field players on your bench has been exposed this week with aplomb … 🙂
