Top 3 Manchester United players to sign on FPL 2021/22

Top 3 Manchester United players to sign on FPL 2021/22

Who are Manchester United’s best FPL assets?

2020/21 proved another solid season for Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Granted, the Red Devils are perhaps still not at the level of the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool. But they still have a number of quality players at their disposal, and can give any side in the Premier League a run for their money when fully firing.

In addition, Man United have continued to strengthen in the market this summer, with the addition of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund having been confirmed.

But which players are currently United’s standout Fantasy Premier League options?

101 picks out our top three below.

Bruno Fernandes, midfielder (11.0m)

The most obvious option for your FPL side is, of course, Bruno Fernandes.

During his first half-season at the club, Fernandes would register eight goals and eight assists in the league.

Then, this past season, the Portuguese found the net on 18 occasions, as well as providing 14 assists (the Premier League only credited him with 12 but FPL awarded 14).

This made Fernandes the highest scoring player across all of FPL in 2020/21.

As a result, moving forward without him in your side for the forthcoming campaign could prove very costly to your overall rank.

Jadon Sancho, midfielder (9.5m)

If you are to go without Fernandes, it would be wise to sign Jadon Sancho in his stead.

Granted, Sancho has no prior Premier League experience, and some may be wary of choosing him following Timo Werner’s debut season with Chelsea after a move from the Bundesliga.

But Sancho notched more than 10 goals and 10 assists in each of his last three seasons for Dortmund.

If he is able to replicate such production this time around, Sancho could prove to be a real bargain on FPL.

Additionally, if Marcus Rashford misses the first few months of the season after undergoing surgery – as is being reported – then Sancho may become United’s starting left-winger. And this is the position from which he tends to score more goals, of course a boost on FPL.

Luke Shaw, defender (5.5m)

The final Man United star you may wish to consider signing is Luke Shaw.

The full-back has enjoyed something of a career revival over the last year, and should be set for a solid 2021/22.

Shaw finished last season with the 3rd highest non-penatly xG and xA per 90 minutes of all Premier League defenders who played at least 20 games.

Man United, when Harry Maguire is fit, also have a decent defensive record, which should see Shaw earn a considerable haul of points from clean sheets – especially if Raphael Varane ends up at Old Trafford this summer.
