*** CLOSED - SEE RESULTS POST BELOW ***

(1) Predict the score, United vs Southampton (e.g. 1-0, 2-2, 1-2)

(2) Fantasy Three

(2a) Choose your three fantasy players (the players on the United side you believe will win most fantasy football points for this game):
*** NOTE *** -- Your fantasy 3 must comprise 1 defender or keeper, 1 midfielder and 1 forward, according to the following:
Defenders/keepers: De Gea, Romero, Grant, Kovar, Wan Bissaka, Williams, Maguire, Lindelof, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Tuanzebe, Bailly, Dalot, Laird, Bernard, Taylor, Mengi.
Midfielders: Fernandes, Pogba, McTominay, Fred, Pereira, Mata, Matic, Garner, Levitt, Lingard, Chong, Gomes, Galbraith, Puigmal
Forwards: Ighalo, Rashford, Martial, Greenwood, James, Mellor

(2b) Choose a backup selection in case any of the above 3 do not take part in the game at all (they MUST be in the same category as the player who isn't selected, e.g. if you choose DDG, Pogba and Rashford with a sub of Martial and Pogba doesn't play, you will only score points for DDG and Rashford).


(3) Match Special Prediction – The Three Kings

For each of the following, predict Rashford, Martial or Greenwood. If your choice has the equal most, you get the points. Score 5 points for each correct answer and 25 bonus points if you get all 5. If any of the three doesn’t play any part in the game, whoever replaces them will get you the points (eg if Ighalo plays instead of Martial, he will also replace him automatically in your predictions).

3a) Who will have most shots on target – Rashford, Martial or Greenwood?
3b) Who will have the most total shots (on or off target) - Rashford, Martial or Greenwood?
3c) Who will have the highest pass success % - Rashford, Martial or Greenwood?
3d) Who will score the most goals - Rashford, Martial or Greenwood?
3e) Who will be substituted first - Rashford, Martial or Greenwood?

(Stats will be taken from whoscored.com)

Here is an example of how your post would look:

(1) 2-1
(2a) DDG, Bruno, Rashford
(2b) McTominay
(3a) Greenwood
(3b) Greenwood
(3c) Rashford
(3d) Greenwood
(3e) Martial

Cutoff time for entries: 19.00 BST Monday or when team is announced, whichever is sooner.

You can edit your predictions any time until the team is announced.

Good luck!

I don't know if I'm right but I see a few things here -
1. Pogba isn't a CDM and shouldn't be relied upon tracking back as much as the manager might want him to.
2. Somehow, we're still not the best in key games or pressure situations.
3. Some rotation of squad may have been okay since we've been playing the same squad with the same strategy, and PL teams don't let you off that easy..

Guys the pressure is getting to United but is it also getting to Dinesh? Our front runner only managed 7 points in this game and came last. Luckily for him, his closest rival KP1980 fared little better, scoring just 9.

It was of course a low scoring night all round but those who thought Greenwood would do the business again really lost out heavily.

Joint winners were Zack and Cal with 28 pts out of a possible 65.

Scoring was as follows:
Fantasy:
Martial - 13; Rashford - 7; Bruno - 5; DDG, Shaw, Pogba, Matic, Greenwood - 2; Maguire, Lindelof, Williams, James, Fred, McTominay - 1; AWB - 0

3a Martial
3b Martial
3c Martial
3d Martial, Rashford
3e Greenwood
