Fantasy Team Picks
David de Gea from Manchester United will be our pick as the goal-keeper. He’s been in horrendous form but he did manage to record a cleansheet the last time around these two clubs met.
RB Leipzig’s Nordi Mukiele will become the first pick for us in this slot with him having the capability to work the flanks and offer much needed width to the side’s attacking plays. We finds company in Premier League linked Ibrahima Konate, a player who’ll be looking to shine today and take charge of the side’s backline in the absence of Upamecano.
The opposition will see Aaron Wan-Bissaka line up for us after his tenacious display against West Ham at the weekend.
The German’s top scorer with the two goals to his name, Angelino is currently in the form of his life. Emil Forsberg will be giving him company for the forthcoming matchup after having scored at the weekend for the club.
The partnership of Marcel Sabitzer and Amadou Haidara will also make way into our team from the club. The two make for a seamless blend of attack and defence, players who can move in unison to both win challenges and beat defenders.
Three goal man Bruno Fernandes retain his place in our side from the opposition.
Striker Marcus Rashford who has the six goals to sit as the club’s top scorer links up with Bruno for the outing. RB Leipzig will also see their striker be inducted in our side with Yussuf Poulsen having both scored and assisted for the team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Bruno’s three goals will see him captain our team while Angelino is the vice-captain.
David, Aaron, Konate, Mukiele, Bruno, Angelino, Emil, Sabitzer, Haidara, Marcus, Poulsen
