Chris Smalling Is Top Of The Manchester United Players' Fantasy Football League

Chris Smalling Is Top Of The Manchester United Players' Fantasy Football League

Chris Smalling might not be getting on the pitch for Manchester United right now but he can at least lord it over his teammates for being the king of Fantasy Football.

We're only two weeks into the season but already some people will be pressing the panic buttons and playing their 'wildcard' on Fantasy Football, but not Smalling.

Players on social media think they've found the United players' private league on the official FPL site and the centre back is leading his partner at the back Phil Jones in the table.

Smalling didn't have the best second week of the season with Jones and fellow defender Luke Shaw closing the gap with their 60 point weeks.

The former Fulham defender's top points earner of the week was Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and he'll be disappointed that captain Mo Salah only earned him six points.

As well as having teammates David de Gea and Anthony Martial in his starting line up the centre back also has youngster Mason Greenwood on the bench.

Phil Jones good week was helped by having Raheem Sterling and Sadio Mane, earning 12 and 13 points each, and also ironically Rui Patricio's penalty save from Paul Pogba, which cost United two points and a win.

Whilst Shaw also had Sterling in his line up it was his captain Sergio Aguero who earned him the points to keep in touch with Jones, whilst Jordan Pickford's second clean sheet of the season also helped.

Daniel James may have started the season with his first goal and his first start for the club but when it comes to Fantasy Football the Welsh winger has some catching up to do.

The former Swansea City winger is bottom of the table on just 72 points and Marcus Rashford's assist on Monday was his only saving grace, although you've got to admire the confidence to put himself in the team.

Right now Smalling and Jones have a lot of time to concentrate on their fantasy teams and might need the distraction too.

The pair have been regulars in United's defence for a long time but Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof are currently the first choice pair and Axel Tuanzebe has been favoured as a substitute too.
