Valencia won two tackles, made five interceptions, won two aerial duels and put in three crosses in Monday's goalless draw with Liverpool.

Valencia was active at both ends of the pitch, and he preserved the clean sheet and the draw with a crucial tackle on Roberto Firmino late in the game. He has settled in as a regular starter under Jose Mourinho and should be included in the team for Thursday's Europa League clash with Fenerbache.

Fantasy Premier League: Sunday-Monday Cheat Sheet

He may be the most expensive option on the slate, but RotoWire's Chris Owen still thinks Zlatan Ibrahimovic deserves plenty of fantasy attention for the Premier League's Sunday-Monday slate.

Antonio Valencia: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia is starting on Saturday against Manchester City.

Valencia had a long trip back from South Americadue to international duty, but he returned in enough time to keep his starting spot. The matchup against the City attack isn't ideal, though without Sergio Aguero roaming about, Valencia may get more opportunities to move forward.

September 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia is available for Saturday's Manchester derby after returning from international duty, manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.

Mourinho stated that Valencia was able to fly to Madrid and then onto London and Manchester in time to participate in training on Friday, which will apparently be enough to see him feature in the heated matchup.

September 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia could be a doubt for the Manchester derby as he returns late from international duty, Marca reports.

Valencia, Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo will return Friday, the day before the derby, from their international duties. While the latter two are not a first-team choice, anyways, Valencia has started all three Premier League matches for the Red Devils, thus far, this season. If Valencia seems fatigue from the trip back he will probably be replaced by Matteo Darmian or Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the right back in a very tough match up.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia had two tackles and sent in three crosses while picking up a clean sheet Saturday against Hull City.

Valencia has now sent in seven crosses this season but that has been the extent of his involvement in the attack. Valencia only assisted on five goals in the last two seasons combined. Valencia’s next match, September 10th against Manchester City, will likely produce the opportunity for more defensive stats.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia secured two interceptions, supplied a pair of crosses and helped keep a clean sheet in Friday's 2-0 triumph over Saints.

Valencia didn't get forward with as much regularity as Southampton had the majority of the possession Friday, but he took care of business on the defensive side of the ball to keep the clean sheet in tact. Valencia became a useful fantasy asset last season after shifting to fullback because of his propensity for getting forward, and his stock should receive a further boost this year because of the improvement of the Red Devils squad as a whole. He will be back at it next week versus Hull City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia started all four Copa America Centenario matches for Ecuador and had a good tournament which ended badly with a red on two yellow cards, he also added a goal on three shots (one on target), an assist, two clean sheets, six fouls and drew four fouls against himself. Valencia took his international tally to nine goals in 84 caps. Ecuador reached the quarterfinals where they lost 2-1 to the USA.

Valencia spent most of the last season with Manchester United on the sidelines with a serious ailment. He came back with a vengeance at the end of the campaign playing the last several games as a starter. The 30-year-old half back had a decent fantasy success as well ending the season with nine clean sheets, three assists and 27 tackles in 14 Premier League appearances (eight starts).

June 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia committed two fouls and was sent off in the second half during Ecuador's 1-2 loss against United States on Thursday.

Valencia is one of Ecuador's most important players and every time he's not there on the pitch, the team is weakened. That was the case today, as the Manchester United player was tightly marked and his frustration rewarded him a red card for a vicious foul against Alejandro Bedoya. His fantasy value playing for Ecuador is pretty high, but he won't make much of an impact if he doesn't control his emotions properly.
