GW35 Kings to watch: Marcus Rashford

The Scout 5 May 2021

The Scout on why it is worth pairing the Man Utd star with his team-mate Bruno Fernandes

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 35 of Fantasy Premier League.

Marcus Rashford (MUN) £9.6m

The Manchester United star provides a strong double-up option alongside his team-mate Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) for Double Gameweek 35.

Whereas the Portuguese is the most popular player in Fantasy, owned by 54.9 per cent, Rashford sits in just under 10 per cent of squads for his matches against Aston VillaLeicester City and Liverpool.

The England international has boasted a major goal threat on the road ahead of his visit to Villa Park.

Away from home, Rashford’s 24 shots in the box and 10 big chances are both team-leading totals for Man Utd.

Promising match-ups

He faces a Villa side who have struggled defensively of late.

Dean Smith’s men are without a clean sheet in seven contests, conceding twice in three of their four home encounters over that period.

Rashford enjoyed a successful meeting with Leicester earlier this season, scoring and earning seven points in Gameweek 15.

Rashford's goal v Leicester

He entertains the Foxes on the back of a series of consistent home displays in Fantasy.

The 23-year-old has blanked in only one of his last six appearances at Old Trafford.

Rashford has totalled 43 points during that run, scoring three goals and supplying four Fantasy assists. 

The Foxes, meanwhile, have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five road trips.

This suggests that, along with Fernandes, Rashford could be set for a bumper Gameweek 35.
