Brighton v Man Utd team news: Rangnick names unchanged XI

One of the Gameweek 36 matches with the least riding on it from a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) perspective takes place this evening.

Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester United, two of the eight teams with a ‘single’ Gameweek, meet at the Amex in a 17:30 BST kick-off.

In fact, among the top 10,000 FPL managers, there is a combined ‘effective ownership’ figure of just 2.18% in this fixture.

The team news is nice and simple as there is only one change between the two sides, both of whom won 3-0 in Gameweek 35 – and it’s an enforced one at that.

That alteration has been made by Graham Potter, who has recalled Pascal Gross to replace the injured Enock Mwepu.

Ralf Rangnick names the same starting XI that beat Brentford on Monday, which means another start for Juan Mata.

The fit-again Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are back on the bench, meanwhile.

GAMEWEEK 36 LINE-UPS

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Sanchez, Cucurella, Dunk, Veltman, Trossard, Caicedo, Bissouma, Gross, March, Mac Allister, Welbeck.

Subs: Steele, Lamptey, Webster, Duffy, Offiah, Lallana, Alzate, Maupay, Ferguson.

Manchester United: De Gea, Telles, Varane, Lindelof, Dalot, Matic, McTominay, Mata, Fernandes, Elanga, Ronaldo.

Subs: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Fernandez, Jones, Fred, Lingard, Cavani, Garnacho.

      It would always have been the second game for a rest not Spurs

      1. Dammit_182

        Yea, could really do with a defender getting some points though.

      • 9 Years

      Pickford
      Trent, Robbo, Cash
      Salah, Son, Zaha, Gordon
      Kane, Richarlison, Watkins

      3-4-3 just looks wrong these days

      1. Finding Timo

        Similar to mine although not sure whether to go both TAA and Robo or go for Double villa?

    Its s joke that Burnley might be relegated instead of Man United. One team adds much more value to the league than the other

    1. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      14 days, 4 hours ago

      We’ve been much better than Burnley over the course of the season tbf

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Burnley have had much greater impact on the title raise by being a genuine banana skin.

          We???

          Earlier you said you were a neutral 😎

      Hard to believe you can get spurs at 6/1 that’s mental

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        14 days, 4 hours ago

        Even harder to believe people are taking Redro seriously

    3. Echoes

      My team actually looks quite set for the next two GWs. Might just ditch the remaining FH as things stand.

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Triple Palace on FH in 38?

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 4 hours ago

          The only problem is Vieira may give his big guns an early holiday and throw in his youngsters to beat united.

        More Blackpool than Ibiza for them this summer.

        Or Dubai, that sums them up. Trashy

        1. Rocket Raccoon

          Ibiza is for trashy people too

      As non salah capper, the success of the game week may be defined in the next 2 hours.

    7. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      The only thing worse than te performance is Rangnicks jumper

      1. Deulofail

        Nicked rag

    8. Echoes

      Quite funny that SGWer Veltman is my highest scorer on the BB so far.

    9. GoonerGirl
      • 2 Years
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      Thanks for nothing Klopp, benching Matip. BB working out so well for me so far.

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Matip and Konate have been rotating for a while

        1. GoonerGirl
          • 2 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          Not in the league, Matip has always played 90 mins. Not the week I play my bench boost though of course. Classic.

        2. Paulo67
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          Not really konate has been playing the cup and Matip the league it’s unlucky he’s been benched

          1. GoonerGirl
            • 2 Years
            14 days, 3 hours ago

            I see what you mean. I guess I chose the wrong time to bring him in so near to the cup final.

            1. Paulo67
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              14 days, 3 hours ago

              That’s just bad luck. He’ll play against villa. And keep a clean sheet and score two:)

              1. GoonerGirl
                • 2 Years
                14 days, 3 hours ago

                Lol yeah, that would be nice 🙂

      2. tomasjj

        matip has been ill i read

        1. GoonerGirl
          • 2 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          Hopefully be back for next game then, if true.

        2. boc610
          • 10 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          there's a cream for that

        3. Paulo67
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          I was thinking there was reason that could explain it. I was sure he’d be the starter in the league and konate for the fa cup

    10. DF Team
      • 5 Years

      Anyone knows what happened to Coutinho? Still expected to play next 2 matches?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Blanking a lot and might not be in next seasons plans, unlike Buendia.

        Wouldn't expect Coutinho to start over him vs Liverpool.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          I'd definitely expect Coutinho to play against Liverpool.

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            14 days, 3 hours ago

            Why when they played so well with Buendia?

            1. Hy liverpool

              14 days, 3 hours ago

              Coutinho buendia watkins front 3 probably.

      2. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Sold to Barcelona

    11. Moose™
      • 9 Years
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      Sold Bruno to get Matip Alonso. I don’t know how to feel tbh

    12. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      If Liverpool don't keep a CS in the next game, it could turn out that not taking a hit for Doherty -> Matip might've earned(saved) me more points on that move.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Positive thinking

    13. SAKA AND EMILE SMITH ROWE
      • 5 Years
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      First FH37 Draft:

      Martinez*
      Robertson Cash* Holgate*
      Salah KDB Maddison* Zaha
      Kane Watkins* Richarlison*

      (3.9m, Guehi*, Brownhill*, Tsimikas)

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        You might want a deeper bench than that?

        1. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
          • 9 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          Nah. Beauty (what's left of it anyway) of DGWs mean you don't normally need a bench. 1 sub is fine.

          1. jason_ni
            • 6 Years
            14 days, 3 hours ago

            And if Robertson in benched, you have his 3.7m replacement to step in.

          2. AC/DC AFC
            • 6 Years
            14 days, 3 hours ago

            Like this week?

              Who's gonna miss both games?

      2. jason_ni
        • 6 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Think I'm gonna dbl on spurs with son as well in place of kdb.

        1. SAKA AND EMILE SMITH ROWE
          • 5 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          I may consider it too

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Apparently it's an illness that kept him out today

        1. pablo discobar
          • 12 Years
          14 days, 3 hours ago

          He's on the bench I think?

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            14 days, 3 hours ago

            He's not

            1. RedRo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              14 days, 3 hours ago

              He is

              • 10 Years

              • 1 Year
              14 days, 3 hours ago

              My bad. He's on the bench, yes

          2. Echoes
            • 1 Year

            Anyways, you still dodged a bullet luckily this week, it seems

    14. lonecomander

      • 10 Years
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      It is early in the week but man does this feel like a pretty spectacular failure of a bench boost. The only saving grace seems to be that about everyone is having the same poor results so far. Have to admit I'm a bit worried going into this next game without Salah especially with Matip benched.

      1. Paulo67
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        Same as that I’ve capped son and don’t have salah but expecting salah maybe to do a number against sess tonight

    15. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      Wow. Man United are really bad.

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        No

      2. lonecomander
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        14 days, 3 hours ago

        We are absolutely trash. Maybe it is different in the UK but I cannot understand how Ragnick isn't getting absolutely destroyed in the media. Here in the US they seem to give him a pass on all of his incredibly unusual management decisions. But the honest answer is Klopp, Pep, and Conte couldn't get this team to defend well. I'll be honest I cannot remember being more demoralized as a United fan since Sir Alex retired.

    16. Van der Faart

      Please god don't let Steve McManaman be on commentary. BT LFC is painful

    17. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      14 days, 3 hours ago

      I promise myself this towards the end of every season, but next season I'm gonna get the BB out of the way in the first few GWs definitely. Always ruins a few good GWs in hits and team structure preparing for it.

    18. Hazz

      Damn Robbo - you should have finished that.
