Wolves vs Manchester United
Rashford is a man rejuvenated. He was used to devastating effect by Gareth Southgate at the World Cup and he looks back to his best, back to that incredible player we know he is.
He has 5 goals & 3 assists in the league this season. He registered a goal and an assist in the game against Forest after returning to club action with a superb solo goal against Burnley.
Semedo looks an incredible price for a card today. The value here definitely played in to my decision. When you consider that Casemiro is just 1.8 to be carded, then 6.0 for Semedo looks a steal.
He’s had 3 yellows and a red so far this season. he’s often rash, clumsy and faces off against United’s most dangerous player – Marcus Rashford.
Rashford draws less than a foul P/90, but that’s largely from playing centrally. In the left wing role, full of confidence; he’s now always looking to square up his man and go by him.
Semedo will happily pull him back cynically if it means stopping him accelerating away from him.
Moutinho averages 1.68 fouls P/90. His job is to break up the play in the midfield, which allows Neves the time and space to create and dictate.
He committed 4 fouls against Everton in the last game. With 2 inverted wingers driving inside and also Bruno Fernandes, who draws 1.36 fouls P/90 and can easily rile up a player like Moutinho.
Fernandes actually commits more fouls (1.50) than he draws (1.36). He’s often guilty of cutting of counters before they happen, bringing down an opposition midfielder or defender before they can get play going.
When in the mood he presses well and covers plenty of ground. When he’s not in the mood, you can rely on him to have a kick out at someone in frustration.
