The FPL Teams Of Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling And Phil Jones Emerge Online
Someone has found the Fantasy Football league Manchester United trio Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are in and their teams are very interesting.
'Red Army' has eight members and Jones is the one faring best out of the three thus far as he is perched in second place behind Gary Walker.
Props to Chris Smalling for going for 'Kroos Control' as his team as opposed to the dry and boring names his teammates have gone for, but he finds himself in fifth position after a tough second gameweek.
But what is most intriguing, is that between them, there are just two United players in their teams and they are both courtesy of Shaw, who has got David De Gea in goal and Paul Pogba in his midfield, as well as Andreas Pereira on his bench.
Here are their FPL teams as things stand...
Number of Utd players in their teams: 2
Number of City/LFC players in their teams: 15
I wonder what picture that paints?

Both he and Jones made the popular decision to captain Sergio Aguero this week and accrued 40 points from him alone following his stunning hat-trick against Huddersfield on Sunday.
Smalling has the chance to get some more points on the board tonight because he's got three Liverpool players in his starting XI - including Sadio Mane as his captain, but unfortunately Jones and Shaw also have several of the big-hitters playing at Selhurst Park tonight.
Rather surprisingly, the trident have a total of 15 players from City and Liverpool, United's two biggest rivals. But is just a game after all - and it doesn't take Einstein to work out that the devastating attacks of both clubs are likely to bring plenty of points across the season.
One footballer we know is very handy at FPL is Stoke's Peter Crouch. Back in February, he was not only leading the way in the 12-man private league the players set up, his incredible points tally put him in the top one per cent of players in the overall standings.
