Zlatan tops the list of five best performing Man United players on FanDuel

Jose Mourinho has enjoyed a topsy turvy start to live as Manchester United manager.

After winning his opening three Premier League games in impressive fashion, he suffered disappointing back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Watford.

That led to people questioning whether he was indeed the man to guide United back to the glory days experienced under Sir Alex Ferguson following calamitous spells with David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.

But United are now unbeaten in three Premier League games again, though that isn’t without the criticism headed his way following the 0-0 stalemate against Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.

Despite all that, three of United’s four summer signings are having a big impact on the way in which Mourinho wants his side to play.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Paul Pogba have all impressed in stages, while Henrikh Mkhitaryan is yet to get the chance to really show what all the fuss is about with him following an impressive 15/16 campaign in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

Ibrahimovic has obviously made the biggest impact up to now, netting three goals in his opening two league games and then following that up with a goal in the Manchester derby.

Despite going four games without hitting the target since then, the big Swede is still racking up the points on FanDuel, the daily fantasy football game which will march your first deposit all the way up to £400.


Ibrahimovic is still averaging 24.78 FanDuel points per game, which is only slightly more than Daley Blind’s average of 24.50.

The striker’s early goal scoring form will have significantly contributed to that but even though his goals have dried up over the past few game weeks, he is still involved in the action and racking up significant points via shots on target (5 points) and chances created (3 each week).

Pogba’s league form has been criticised but he’s still averaging 22.11 FanDuel points a game, which is down to his passing accuracy – players get 0.25 points for every 5 successful passes – and his ability to tackle (2 points for every successful tackle).

Other high performing Man United players include Bailly (19.00 average per game) and Herrera, who is averaging 18.46 FanDuel points per game.

These figures prove that even if players aren’t scoring or putting in eye opening displays, they can still rack up a high amount of FanDuel points.

This is way you should still consider any of these United players when selecting your FanDuel team this weekend.
