Man Utd v Brentford team news: Mata in for Rashford

Gameweek 35 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) comes to a close this evening with Manchester United hosting Brentford at Old Trafford.

Kick-off is at 20:00 BST.

Ralf Rangnick makes one change from the side that drew 1-1 with Chelsea in Gameweek 34, as Juan Mata comes in for Marcus Rashford, who drops to the bench.

Edinson Cavani, meanwhile, is a substitute and could feature for the first time since March.

As for the visitors, Kristoffer Ajer and Christian Norgaard return after missing the goalless draw with Tottenham Hotspur, with Saman Ghoddos and Mathias Jensen making way.

That means Christian Eriksen continues in midfield, with The Bees unbeaten in all six of the matches he has started.

However, this game comes too soon for Ethan Pinnock and Sergi Canos.


GAMEWEEK 35 LINE-UPS

Manchester United XI: de Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Telles, McTominay, Matic, Mata, Fernandes, Elanga, Ronaldo

Subs: Henderson, Bailly, Jones, Fernandez, Fred, Lingard, Garnacho, Rashford, Cavani

Brentford XI: Raya, Ajer, Jansson, Bech, Roerslev, Janelt, Norgaard, Eriksen, Henry, Mbeumo, Toney

Subs: Fernandez, Jeanvier, Stevens, Da Silva, Jensen, Baptiste, Wissa, Fosu-Henry, Young-Coombes

    Best keeper & defender combo with £9.6 budget for GW36?

    Was looking at Eve & Lei due to back to back DGW but Matip seemingly popular it seems?!

    1. Paulo67
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      maybe schmeichel and matip

      1. Evasivo
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        That’s £10.1 🙁

    2. NorCal Villan
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Look at Matip’s last 10-12 matches, there’s a reason he might be popular

        1. Evasivo
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          That’d have be be Foster and Matip for that budget tho

          1. Paulo67

            Def schmeichel he has best fixtures. You could take a pint on tsmikas as he’s def going to play one of the doubles for pool

      Hmm thinking of a -8 for BB36:
      Doherty, Martinelli, Mount, Kane to
      Laporte, Gordon, KDB, Richarlison

      Means I still have Mateta and Broja but feel like these might be worthwhile moves. What do you reckon?

      1. circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Not worth it.

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          But imagine if it worked out 😉
          I've got nothing to lose, so feel like it's a fun punt

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I would get doublers for the singles ones instead of just swapping doublers.
        Or if funds is needed KANE out so you can upgrade Doherty, mateta and Broja.
        Something like Richarlison, watkins, cancelo and Pukki if it works. If cancelo to much then Laporte.

    4. The Parrot
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Want to do Weghorst to Richarlson but need 0.6 more.

        How to fund??
        A) James to Zichenko
        B) James to Matip
        C) James to Laporte and Mount to Gordan/Maddison/Raphina
        D) James to Laporte and Kulu to Gordan/Maddison/Raphina

        1. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          B

        2. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          C?

          1. The Parrot
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Similar to yours above. Just not sure if it's worth losing mount and taking a hit...

              Matip + Mount + 4 v Laporte + Gordon/Maddison/Raphina...

        3. Echoes

          Rep from old thread

          How many minutes do we think these will get over the DGW?

          A: Havertz
          B: Mount

          1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            A) 90
            B) 80

            1. Echoes
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Cheers. You feel both won't play both games of the double or sub appearance for either?

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Havertz will play one full and Mount will make 60+20

        4. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Would love a Toney return today to fully cement my highest rank this season, so I'm guessing it'll be a yc and little else!

          Repost from old article. Planning on BB36 and FH37.

          A) Schär >
          1) Amartey
          2) Fofana
          3) Holgate
          4) Other max 4.4m

          B) Schär and Kane for -4 > Cancelo and
          1) Jesus
          2) Richarlison
          3) Werner
          4) Other max 9.6m

          1. waltzingmatildas

            B2... Risky but like it

          Any people playing FH36 then BB37? If so why ? Thanks

            • 3 Years

            Yes I am. Mainly because the other way round would be insane

            1. Finding Timo
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Because bench rubbish ? I have foster, smartey , Broja & chabolah!!

        7. DannyDrinkVodka

          Eyeing up a cheeky Salah>Son(c), Watkins>Vardy -4 for GW38

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Too risky for me

            • 1 Year
            2 months, 5 days ago

            If you’re chasing go for it! Not sure I’d move Watkins tho to vardy tho his game time will be very limited I think

          3. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Spurs will be number four by then with nothing to play for and Leicester nothing to play for. I would like to have SON but not the expense of Salah. Liverpool most likely plays for the title.

          bottomed on last post

          How would you spend 1.7m to improve this bb team (currently planned to be -4, with Kasper/Nket in for Forster/Gelhardt)

          Will FH 37

          Rams, (Kasper)
          TAA, Rudiger, Cancelo (Fofana, B Davies)
          Salah, Saka, Foden, Mount,Maddison
          Watkins, Nketiah (Pukki)

          a) Nketiah/Mount could be Jesus/Kulu (exact funds)
          b) Fofana (won't play 2) to Laporte (also exact funds)
          c) other?

          FPL 2022/23 preseason bandwagon Mitrovic scored twice in a 7-0 win today, scoring his 43rd of the season.

          1. popey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            mentally, already signed up for banking a 0.2 loss on him in GW5 panic WC

            1. Echoes
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 5 days ago

              And then he goes on a 5 game streak(probably his only streak of the season) before people buy for more disappointment in GW9 again.

              2 months, 5 days ago

              Last couple of weeks of owning him have been bad but this goal and captaining him the two January DGWs overall he has been good when I've owned him

              The first dgw was especially huge

                Was also on board for that one! Have luckily been without him last couple weeks until this one 😀

            Yeah mate. Great parting gift. Makes up for the dross last few weeks a bit.

            Salivating over the incoming Bruno price drop for next season, especially if Ronaldo leaves and he's the main man again

            1. Qaiss
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Got to wonder where Ronaldo will actually go though

              1. mynameisq
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Bayern and back to Madrid is being touted. Can't see him staying at Man Utd as Messi will slowly but surely overtake his champions League goal record otherwise, and will have done it in less games

                1. ZimZalabim
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  heard abt the back to madrid rumours which I thought make sense, but havent seen the Bayern ones. That looks like a interesting one, Lewandowski leaving for barca it seems and its an easy league for ronaldo to get his goals and get his UCL football and hell add another league title from another European Country so sounds like a great option for him if Bayern are actually interested, not sure how much actual interest there is from them.

                  What about PSG as a shout to try and get him and Messi together for a season ? Or do you think its become too toxic now ?

                  1. mynameisq
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    I think Bayern is the best bet, can stat pad, get goals in the champions League, win another title in a different league

                    Psg are unbalanced enough as it is, they can't add another ego not tracking back that said they don't get football and will probably just throw money at it

            If you had Son would you keep or go for De Bruyne?

            If I keep Son I can afford Foden.

              b)Kane+Jota->Richarlison+Salah(c) and FH in gw37 but no Kane or Son for gw37/gw38.I can't see a way to get at least one of them.I hope you can.

              Ramsdale
              Robertson | Laporte | Alonso | Matip
              Salah | KDB | Son | Foden | Saka
              Richarlison

              The bench would be pretty weak.

                Why Ramsdale? He will concede. Will Alonso play both? Midfield looks great
