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.

    Remember the King or Dennis debate lol

    1. RedRo

      The funniest thing about that was how angry people got

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        Yes!

        It was ridiculous at the time all round. Clearly Ddnnis

    2. Rainer

      I don't even want to look back at some of the forwards I've owned this season, not mentally ready for it

    3. Josh.E
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        lol

      • Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        I've had three Watford forwards, each at the wrong time.

      • The Sociologist
        • 3 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Gotta feel for those who decided that owning both was the answer.

        1. RedRo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          I feel personally attacked

      • Arteta
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        I even had both for a few gameweeks. Bad times.

    4. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      Let’s go Utd. Vamos

    5. Shane86
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      Anyone actually own a player in this game?

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Nah, I had Bruno until this week so I guess I just hope he doesn’t do anything (if he stays true to form that seems a good bet)

      2. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        My rival has Sanchez on his BB.

    6. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      Thought I'd check how free hit team doing. Then remembered that none of them are playing till the Liverpool game! 3City, 3Pool, 2Leic, 1Everton, 2Arse!

    7. BrockLanders
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      14 from 5 any good?

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        I’m 1 from 3 so I guess so!

      2. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
        • 9 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        -3 from 3 here. Knew my team looked too good to be true.

        1. RedRo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Ah, I forgot to take the hit into account - guess I’m -3 from 3 too. Inflated my score

          1. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
            • 9 Years
            16 days, 6 hours ago

            Laissez les bon temps rouler

      3. Pino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Not really.

      4. Pino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Many people own Chelsea players so we are all in the same boat.

      5. cigan
        • 3 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        I'm 1 from 1 (thanks to Reece James the useless muppet)

        Quite happy I took a hit to take Coutinho out right now but the City lineup tomorrow could make me cry

      6. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 5 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        0 from -8!

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          -8 from 0 even…

    8. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      Southampton really have just given up haven’t they? This feels like a whole new level of ‘on the beach’

      1. Qaiss
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Seems like they do it every season

      2. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Easy Salah (c) next week

      3. Arteta
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        I still can't believe that we lost against Saints, who gave points to everyone else in their last 10 games.

    9. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      So good to see Fred back in the squad. Been superb this calendar year.

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Sadly been one of our best players

      2. Giggs Boson
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        De ja vu. Think I said this before Brentford too.

        I like Fred!

    10. wulfrunian
      • 5 Years
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      Best defender up to 4.7 for gw37+gw38?

      1. lonecomander
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Probably one of the spurs boys. Ben Davis or Royal

        1. RedRo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Yeah, this I think. Maybe Tomiyasu?

      2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
        • 9 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Coady 🙂

      3. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Spurs I guess, maybe a Palace player if you fancy a doubler. Brentford also a shout, decent pair of fixtures for them

      4. Giggs Boson
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Guéhi if he's fit, or else Anderson/Clyne.

      5. wulfrunian
        • 5 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        cheers all.I guess someone from Tottenham/Leicester.

      6. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Brentford CB's say hi

    11. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      16 days, 6 hours ago

      Any juicy transfers bound to happen for next season?

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Think Rice will move. Will be interesting to see where Lacazette and Nketiah go. Halaand is coming to Utd. Chelsea will have to get at least 1 CB. Not much else that I’m aware of.

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Haaland to United? Lol wut

          1. RedRo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            16 days, 6 hours ago

            He’s said before it’d be his dream move. Whether we’d stump up the cash required is another question

            1. JariL
              • 7 Years
              16 days, 6 hours ago

              There is no way Håland goes to a team that doesn't play UCL.

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Its seems that you might be a rose-tinted-glasses Utd supporter. If you think Haaland is going there you need counselling.

        3. NorCal Villan
            16 days, 4 hours ago

            Haaland to Man United?

            Redro, you’re better than that

        4. Giggs Boson
          • 10 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Haaland to City is pretty juicy.

          There could well be a Salah v Haaland debate in pre-season.

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 4 Years
            16 days, 6 hours ago

            I have a feeling Salah is going to leave

            1. Pino
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              16 days, 6 hours ago

              How can you feel it?

              1. Inazuma X1
                • 4 Years
                16 days, 6 hours ago

                Cause they'll lose CL+PL

              2. mynameisq
                • 8 Years
                16 days, 6 hours ago

                In his plums

            2. Big_Andy_GAWA
              • 10 Years
              16 days, 6 hours ago

              Where would he go - Madrid? After bring so vocal about wanting revenge on them?

              1. Inazuma X1
                • 4 Years
                16 days, 6 hours ago

                He wants $$ not revenge

              2. RedRo
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                16 days, 6 hours ago

                It was reported he was trying to push for a move to Utd a couple of years ago. Probably not anymore. I think he stays or if he goes anywhere it’s PSG

          2. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 6 hours ago

            I think i would have the one that stays fit 38 games and not the one with load of injury issues. And he wont be nailed.

        5. Arteta
          • 6 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Haaland to Man City.

        6. Forza Papac
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Arsenal striker hunt could be juicy. Schick or Jesus potentially

        7. Hairy Potter
          • 7 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Newcastle's recruitment will be interesting.

          1. Forza Papac
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            16 days, 6 hours ago

            Indeed. Need to go about getting their Kompany, Yaya, Silva and Aguero

            1. Hairy Potter
              • 7 Years
              16 days, 6 hours ago

              I think a striker, left back and right winger will be the priorities this summer.

            2. Giggs Boson
              • 10 Years
              16 days, 6 hours ago

              That was before financial fair play. They'll need UCL income before moving for players of that calibre.

              1. Hairy Potter
                • 7 Years
                16 days, 6 hours ago

                They can spend a fair bit due to Ashley's lack of spending, but I think they'll target top ten next season and take it from there.

              2. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 5 Years
                16 days, 6 hours ago

                That can easily be fudged - whole thing is just a farce

        8. Planet Jo

          Lewandowski incoming?

        Brought in Mount for GW38 v Watford, do not too down hearted

      3. VIVA_RONALDO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Alonso sub tactical or injury?

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Trying to find out myself. What I’ve seen on Twitter suggests tactical. If so, with points dropped today, you’d hope he’d start against Leeds

      4. Shane86
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Matic and Mata suddenly important players when their contracts are up after being marginalized for years. This united team is such a joke it boggles the mind

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          16 days, 6 hours ago

          Club has been a joke for last 8 years

      5. Pino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        Foster vs James + Couthino = 4 - 2

      6. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 6 hours ago

        FPL (Chelsea!! and Cash and Weghorst) really pi$$ed me off earlier. Did a double bet on the European and US PGA golf earlier, so bit of viewing of the latter to take my mind off things.

        1. LEEDSLEEDSLEEDS
          • 10 Years

            16 days, 5 hours ago

            Did Jason Day @ 15/8 & Olesen at 4/1. Literally less than a minute later Ramsey holed for birdie and Olesen dropped a shot soon after. But finished with eagle and then birdie.
            But now Day messing up here...

              I would never have picked Day this week. Nice pick.

        Imagine playing Mata, Ronaldo and Matic against this Brighton side.

        First DGW transfers I was gonna do to free up money were Mendy to Foster and Mount to Gordon. Really wish I had gone ahead and done that now. . . 🙁 🙁

                It’s going to be a competition between who can be worse lol

              Paying the price for very, very bad recruitment*

                £130 million on Maguire and Wan Bissaka. Both on the bench

                  Funnily enough Man United fans were delighted 3 years ago when they signed those two. They were never worth anywhere near that much.

            I can just about afford this move for next week if I do it now before Richarlison's price increases. Is it worth it?

            Alonso + Nketiah > Digne + Richarlison (-4)

            "Unfortunately they were a bit too far away" - Hodgson on choice not to acknowledge Watford fans at full time

            He’s trolling Watford fans at this point.

              He’s not well. He shouldn’t have taken this job

                A massive payday and he’s so chilled about it.
                Good riddance Watford, their managerial policy is a joke and they are getting their just desserts.

              Subs a forward for a defender to defend the 1-0 defect, even through relegation on the line. Masterclass.

              Similar to Moyes' excuse that the ball sat up nicely for a volley 😆

              That combined with the smiles and backslapping with his former players at full-time must have been a real winner with the Watford fans
