The 2021-22 Premier League season starts in August and the new fantasy squads have already been published.
Manchester United players have made up a number of successful teams over the years and given our performance in the Premier League last campaign, you can expect our players to be among the top picks once again.
Here’s a look at a few players you cannot go without for the new campaign:
Bruno Fernandes (12.0)
The midfielder scored a league high 244 points last season. A playmaker, goalscorer, penalty taker – Bruno Fernandes has it all to make your fantasy team a success in 2021-22.
A great selection for anyone’s team, whether you’re doing the official fantasy Premier League or Betway Esports, the Portuguese superstar almost guarantees you points every single week.
Bruno was involved in 16 goals (8 goals, 8 assists) in his first half a season with Manchester United, before scoring 18 and setting up a further 14 in his first full campaign last term. He also benefited from 13 clean sheet points and 36 bonus points. With the rules for the captain scoring double points too, Bruno is often a good pick to wear your team’s armband most weeks too.
Marcus Rashford (9.5)
A regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, Marcus Rashford was our second highest points scorer in terms of fantasy points last season.
Although some way behind Bruno Fernandes, the fact that he’s listed as a midfielder makes him a great selection. He will get a bonus point for every clean sheet we keep, and he sometimes lines up as a striker too.
Based on his points from last season, Rashford’s better value heading into the new campaign than Raheem Sterling (11.0) and Kevin De Bruyne (12.0). Rashford has only been a bit part player in England’s Euro 2020 so far so isn’t on course to be suffering from fatigue when he returns to training later this summer.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (5.5)
Coming off a season where he scored his first Premier League goals (2) and a personal best in assists (2), Aaron Wan-Bissaka would be a solid pick for your fantasy team’s defence.
He has no competition at right-back and is fresh having not been a part of Gareth Southgate’s England side over the summer. Only three defenders scored more fantasy points than Wan-Bissaka’s 144 last season and two of them offer much value considering their prices – Andrew Robertson (161 points for 7.0) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (160 points for 7.5).
One of the top fantasy football tips is to include a couple of solid defenders. They offer the best value for points as they are often considerably cheaper than the highest scoring attackers (ie Harry Kane is 12.5).
We’ll see what business Ole does over the next two months as many of us want to see a new centre-back added to the squad. That would likely help improve the number of clean sheets we keep, which would only further benefit having a Manchester United defender in your side.
