Marcus Rashford has gone for Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba has selected himself as Manchester United’s top stars have revealed their Fantasy Premier League picks for the season.
Most players decided to resist the urge to include any United stars in GW1, due to the fact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were granted an extra week off following their run to the Europa League semi-finals last season.
However, a number of Red Devils were drafted in the following week as the team prepared for their opening fixture at home to Crystal Palace, with the likes of Fernandes, Anthony Martial and Rashford all popular choices.
Unfortunately for United fans, Palace ended up springing an upset at Old Trafford, running out 3-1 winners thanks to an Andros Townsend strike and a brace from Wilfried Zaha.
Fernandes, who had previously averaged an impressive eight FPL points per game for the club following his move from Sporting CP in January, only delivered two against the Eagles, as did Rashford, Martial and Pogba.
Teenage forward Mason Greenwood, meanwhile, claimed just one point after being forced to make do with a cameo role from the bench.
Martial and Rashford hit 17 goals each in the top flight last season, while Greenwood was also among United’s top-performing players.
And despite their poor start to the new season, many are likely to try and fit them into their FPL teams again when Solskjaer takes his side to Brighton on Saturday.
Ahead of that clash, several members of the current Red Devils squad have offered their top picks, with Rashford coming forward first to put his faith in Fernandes.
