The Premier League have released the prices for their Fantasy Premier League game for the 2021/22 season.

While the big kick-off is not until 13 August, players can start getting prepared to try and outdo last season’s points tallies and win their mini-leagues.

Manchester United players of course always generate interest and here is a look at how much all of them cost, and our analysis.

Goalkeepers

  • David de Gea £5m
  • Dean Henderson £5m

The uncertainty over United’s goalkeeping situation is reflected here.

At this stage, it’s too early to tell which of de Gea and Henderson will start next season as number one. That’s why they’re the same price.

If you pick the one who starts and he stays in place for the whole season, that could be a tidy bargain.

But Solskjaer chopped and changed his stopper last season which can cause headaches for fantasy managers.

Defenders

  • Harry Maguire £5.5m
  • Luke Shaw £5.5m
  • Aaron Wan-Bissaka £5.5m
  • Alex Telles £5m
  • Victor Lindelof £5m
  • Eric Bailly £5m
  • Axel Tuanzebe £4.5m
  • Brandon Williams £4m

Luke Shaw established himself as one of the most creative full-backs in the Premier League last season. Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s attacking output improved too.

Harry Maguire is always a threat at set-pieces, and may hope to score more next season.

Victor Lindelof looks to be the cheapest route into United’s regular back four here.

Alex Telles is a dead-ball specialist, but if Shaw replicates his 2020/21 form next season, the Brazilian may struggle for minutes.

Midfielders

  • Bruno Fernandes £12m
  • Marcus Rashford £9.5m
  • Paul Pogba £7.5m
  • Mason Greenwood £7.5m
  • Jesse Lingard £7m
  • Donny van de Beek £6m
  • Daniel James £6m
  • Scott McTominay £5.5m
  • Fred £5m
  • Nemanja Matic £4.5m

Bruno is the third most expensive player in the game after a whopping 244 points last season.

 

He takes set-pieces and plays every game. He’s established himself as one of the best fantasy football players in the league.

Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are down as midfielders, because they play on the wing.

If Greenwood carries on his late-season form into the next, £7.5m could be a bit of a bargain.

Paul Pogba is another who might be worth a go at that same price, especially if he signs a new deal and commits his future to United.

Strikers

  • Edinson Cavani £8.5m
  • Anthony Martial £8m

Having players who play every week is so important in fantasy football and that’s the main question mark around Cavani.

At his age, will he play week-in, week-out? Or will he share striking duties with Martial?

If Cavani nails down that starting spot – and he is clearly United’s best striker – he could be a real bargain at £8.5m.

Not many people will be going near Martial at £8m after the season he’s just had but he’ll hope to prove a few people wrong in 2021/22.

Top tips

Bruno is a must-pick because of the amount of goals he picks up and the fact he almost never misses a game.

Alongside him, Greenwood looks the best value if you fancy doubling up on the United midfield.

In defence, Shaw is the pick. He takes corners and flies forward from full-back. At £5.5m, he looks like sensible business.

Of course there could be further United players added to the list between now and April. How much would Jadon Sancho be worth on FPL?
