Fantasy Football Scout: Best Rashford and Martinelli replacements

Owned by many FPL managers, midfielders Marcus Rashford and Gabriel Martinelli may be injured and need replacing.

Two of Fantasy Premier League’s (FPL) most popular midfield picks are both flagged with injury heading into Double Gameweek 37.

A leg problem saw Marcus Rashford (£7.2m) deemed “more than doubtful” to face Wolverhampton Wanderers last Saturday. Then, Gabriel Martinelli (£6.6m) limped off after 19 minutes versus Brighton and Hove Albion.

Coming just one week after Solly March‘s (£5.2m) injury, the FPL midfield template has been shaken up, with a whole range of new names being explored for the final two Gameweeks of 2022/23.

Should Friday’s press conferences rule the pair out of proceedings, here is a selection of the lead candidates to replace them. This does not include the already highly-owned Brighton midfielders Kaoru Mitoma (£5.7m) and Alexis Mac Allister (£5.6m).

OTHER ARSENAL/MAN UTD MIDFIELDERS

FPL new signings: Who is Man United midfielder Antony? 2

Perhaps managers are happy to make a sideways move to the likes of Martin Odegaard (£6.8m), Bukayo Saka (£8.1m), Bruno Fernandes (£9.5m) or Antony (£7.3m).

Manchester United play twice in Double Gameweek 37 against the poor defences of Bournemouth and Chelsea. However, their 51 goals so far are fewer than Fulham and Brentford. They’re underperforming their expected goals (xG) tally by 8.22 and a perfect example of this is £85m summer signing Antony.

Of all midfielders that have played at least 500 minutes, Antony has the best minutes-per-chance rate.

Yet only four goals have arrived from these 68 shots. As Tom points out in his look at Man United’s best Double Gameweek 37 options, the fact that 30 of these have come in his last eight appearances offers a glimpse at some potential for delivering some late FPL returns.
