An impressive 2-0 home win over Manchester City has extended Manchester United’s fine run of form in Fantasy Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have won three of their last four Premier League matches, drawing the other.
January signing Bruno Fernandes (£8.4m) has been hugely influential.
The Portuguese midfielder has accumulated 36 points over those four fixtures, scoring twice and providing three assists.
Fernandes appears to be the first-choice taker for corners and free-kicks, while he converted from the penalty spot against Watford in Gameweek 27.
Anthony Martial (£7.9m) has also starred recently, scoring in the victories over Chelsea, Watford and Man City.
While a trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday could bring in further returns, Man Utd’s short-term appeal is reduced by their blank Gameweek 31.
However, from Gameweek 32 onwards, their run of opponents suggests that bringing in both Fernandes and Martial could prove a very successful tactic.

|34||AVL (A)||2||37||WHU (H)||2|
* Home match with SHU could be rescheduled for GW34 or GW37
According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), five of United’s six matches from Gameweek 32 score just two.
They also have a home encounter with Sheffield United to be rescheduled, which could hand them a Double Gameweek 34 or 37.
After their blank has passed, managers should prioritise Solskjaer’s key attackers for the run-in.
