Selection headache for Hodgson as Batshuayi turns FPL heads

Fantasy Premier League managers will have to monitor the forward situation at Crystal Palace amid recent changes to the side.

There are a host of budget options available but Roy Hodgson has some decisions to make about his formation in the coming weeks.

Their win over Fulham on Saturday is the focus of this latest Scout Notes article.

Crystal Palace 2-0 Fulham

Goals: Luka Milivojevic (£6.2m), Jeffrey Schlupp (£4.4m)

Assists: Michy Batshuayi (£6.5m)

Crystal Palace manager Hodgson has a selection headache on his hands ahead of Gameweek 26, as it is still unclear for Fantasy managers how Michy Batshuayi (£6.5m) fits in at Selhurst Park. The Chelsea striker, who joined the Eagles on loan on transfer deadline day, grabbed himself an assist in his eight-minute debut and certainly showed some promise in his short space of time on the field.

Whether he will be in line to start against West Ham on Saturday remains to be seen though, as Hodgson has serious competition for places in his attacking line now. In Wilfried Zaha‘s (£6.7m) absence, the Palace boss reverted to the 4-4-2 formation he used at the start of the season, having favoured 4-3-3 in recent weeks. A switch back to 4-3-3 would leave just one space for a centre-forward with Zaha and Andros Townsend (£5.9m) likely to take up the wide positions.

Leading from the front against Fulham was an attacking pairing of Christian Benteke (£6.3m) and Jordan Ayew (£5.7m), both of whom played well and earned praise from their manager at the full-time whistle. It was the first start for Benteke since Gameweek 4, as he continues his recovery from a long lay-off. According to Hodgson, the former Aston Villa man still has issues playing the full 90 minutes, although it should be to his credit that there were boos from the home support when he was substituted in the 72nd minute.

“Christian, of course, (did well) coming back from a long layoff. At half-time he was complaining about the onset of cramp, we knew we couldn’t play him for 90 minutes, we knew that we would have to take him off at some time. But the good thing is of course now when you have Batshuayi on the bench and when you have Bakary Sako on the bench you’re not frightened to take him off because you’ve got such a good alternative.” – Roy Hodgson

It was Ayew who Batshuayi came on for in the 82nd minute, but whether he replaces the former Swansea man may also hang in the balance currently. Even though he did not score or assist, Hodgson described Ayew’s performance as his best of the season, having started each of the last five in a row for Palace.

“For Ayew on an all-round performance, it was his best performance. His work rate and efforts in the game at Southampton in midweek was fantastic, today again you see the man has super-human powers in terms of the effort he puts in. Today I thought he succeeded with the ball as well.” – Roy Hodgson

With the nature of Batshuayi’s arrival as a marquee signing at Palace, it is fairly likely that he will start matches very soon. It cannot be ignored that the Belgian international looked fired up as soon as he took to the Selhurst Park pitch, and in just eight minutes on the pitch managed two shots and a one assist. With future Palace team-sheets harder to predict now, questions have been asked to current players about whether the group of forwards can play together.

“Of course we can play together. But now it is up to the manager. Like I say he has got a lot of options, so it is up to him. He is a goal scorer, he is a player who is always going to be dangerous in the box – which is good. We have got a lot of different options, which I think for the manager is going to be a headache for him.” – Christian Benteke

An often overlooked individual at Crystal Palace is second half goalscorer and FPL defender Jeffrey Schlupp (£4.4m), who netted for the second time against Fulham this season. With Zaha out of the team, the former Leicester man was making his first start since Gameweek 20 at left attacking midfield, having featured as a substitute three times between then and the visit of Fulham. No player had more shots in the penalty box at Selhurst Park on Saturday as he continues to prove he has the potential to be a powerful Fantasy asset if he was able to start regularly. In fact, Schlupp actually has goals in two of his last three starts, also netting in the spectacular 3-2 win at Manchester City in Gameweek 18. Unfortunately for him, his area of the pitch is where the most competition for places are with Zaha and Max Meyer (£5.6m) in the mix, as well as any striker pushed out wide.

“I’ve always believed in Jeffrey Schlupp. I believe in him as a left-back, I believe in him as a left-sided player and I believe in him as a left midfield player in a three because he has a lot of qualities and it’s great if you’re going to write something positive about him because it certainly backs up what we feel about him and he’s been a little hard done by. Funnily enough in the area that he plays that’s where the competition has been strongest.” – Roy Hodgson

After surviving a first-half Fulham onslaught, there was a ninth clean sheet of the season for Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.6m) and his Crystal Palace defensive colleagues. It was further proof that the Eagles assets in our Fantasy squads should be trusted more often than not when they are playing at home. In their last four league matches at Selhurst Park they have kept three clean sheets and conceded just once, in the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in Gameweek 20.

“I wasn’t surprised that the first-half was a difficult one for us, we didn’t pass the ball anywhere near as well as we’re capable of in the first-half. But we got a break, a piece of good fortune, the cross was a good cross but I didn’t expect Christie to handle it to give us that penalty, but these things to happen in the game of football. Certainly, in the second half, I thought we played much better. I thought our control was better, our passing started to come back to its normal levels. We piled a bit of pressure on them, not least of all from corner kicks which we were taking.” – Roy Hodgson

Unfortunately for Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.5m) owners, Fulham were unable to attack Palace with the same ruthlessness they did against Brighton midweek. Despite finding such success playing balls into the middle for Mitrović to thrive on in Gameweek 24, Saturday’s trip to Selhurst saw none of that width in attack. The injured André Schürrle (£5.6m) was replaced not by a natural wide player, but by central midfielder Tom Cairney (£4.6m), who clearly was not suited to the role.

“No, no, no, we continued to play and try to do our game but of course we made a few crosses for Mitrovic and we know Mitrovic is very dangerous when you pass the ball well and cross for him. I ask always to make a cross for him but it’s not possible sometimes and we want to go back and pass the ball behind and restart the action when you can finish and cross. If Mitrovic is ready, he can score.” – Claudio Ranieri

There were other tactical changes that seemed to hinder Fulham, as they reverted to a three-man defence with wing-backs pushing on despite the success they had with a back-four for the second half against Brighton. After going 1-0 down to Luka Milivojevic‘s (£6.2m) penalty, Claudio Ranieri was forced to ditch the back-three once again. Luciano Vietto (£5.3m) was introduced for Tim Ream (£4.2m) at half-time as part of the latest reshuffle.

“I played three at the back and we played better than the second half. I changed to try help my players at Brighton, that was good, but today wasn’t and that’s it.” – Claudio Ranieri

It was an afternoon to forget for Cyrus Christie (£4.2m) as he gave away the penalty in the first half and was forced from the pitch with an injury in the second.

“He was injured, I don’t know (the latest). Tomorrow we will check and on Monday we will know better.” – Claudio Ranieri

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Sakho, Tomkins, Wan-Bissaka; Schlupp (Sako 90+1′), Milivojevic, McArthur, Townsend; Benteke (Meyer 72′), Ayew (Batshuayi 82′).

Fulham XI (3-4-3): Rico; Ream (Vietto 45′), Le Marchand, Odoi; Bryan, Seri, Chambers, Christie (Fosu-Mensah 62′); Babel (Ayité 88′), Mitrović, Cairney.

          it would be a MASSIVE surprise is Everton took anything away from this game, they have an atrocious record against the top 6 and will quite happily let Liverpool get leap-frogged by City anyway.

        Vvd is a leader..not his fault firmino and Keita had shockers. Lallana and divock barely good enough for teams outside top 6 let alone pool

        My captain next week?

        should be playing him up top he is ineffective wide

        Again? I've had him for the last 53 gameweeks.

      4. Limited & Mediocre Mana…
        • 3 Years

        I took him out after he looked abysmal vs Everton. Then he scored a hatty.

    6. FlockofSeagulls
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Best thing about this result is that it strengthens Aguero's chances of getting at least 60 minutes against Everton imo.

      Potentially a nice little gift for his cappers. 😉

        Yeah I'm feeling hard done by so far.

      2. Magic Zico

        Regretted not captaining him

        Indeed. I capped sané. I'm kicking myself so hard!
        Good job I had hazard over my main rival in mini league.
        He capped kun.
        Yet we have Similar points

        1. FlockofSeagulls
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Sane could very easily be up for a big game vs EVE, so if you have both he and Kun I think you'll still be happy in the end. As an owner of both I'm hoping for a big game from both.

      Hazard and Fandy to Sterling and Dick going well. I'm fearful of not owning more City players. They're going to slaughter Everton

      1. Fossit

        Dick?

      If City and Chelsea were not playing each other and then blanking, Salah would be long gone from my team.

      Lack of alternative premiums at he moment.

        Yes, 180 points by game week 23 is appalling for a premium player.

        1. Zladan
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          His stats have been fluffed up massively over the last 7 games thanks to penalties.

          It’s been nice getting the points from them, but it’s surely unsustainable winning a penalty every other week.

      Do people think tonight's result will make Pep less inclined to rotate (subject to fitness)?

      1. Vinyl78LP
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Top spot carrot being dangled might be enough for him to field the same winning line up ... at least for 60 mins.

      2. ankil2009

        I think Pep rotates regardless

        nobody knows what goes on inside that bald kranium but its usually bad news for me. if City had no double id be nowhere near their players

      I'm beginning to believe there is a life out there.
      In Southampton there is an epidemic of people sleeping very rough on the street.
      If they can understand my language, I'm going to take their advice on next weeks' captain for sure.

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Are there people sleeping on your City streets?

        I'm asking because it seems like a growing theme here.

          Strange post.

          People living rough all over the uk sadly. Certainly wouldn’t consider it an epidemic in Southampton having lived here 30 years.

          Was in Rome last week, pretty horrendous over there

          1. Skull And Gnomes 9

            You walked through the High Street after 11.30pm lately?

            You must be a Chilworth sort of girl yer?

                  Rough sleeping and homelessness is on the rise accross the Uk. Wasn’t aware of it being an epidemic or specific problem in Southampton, in my personal opinion having not read up in detail on the problem.

                  1. Skull And Gnomes 9

                    Get out and walk about with security measures of course.

                    You're doing my my head in with your nonsense. Look at the time now, go and have a little wander from the Ferry Terminals to the end of the High Street.

                    Then chew the cud.

                      Security measures?

                      Whilst extremely sad (so many reasons people are homeless), I’m not disbelieving you, purely suggesting in my personal opinion, and from what I’ve seen, I wasn’t aware there was an epidemic.

                      I merely point out that homelessness is not a problem confined to Southampton.

                      You may have seen issues or experienced seeing people homeless on more occasions than myself and I respect your opinion.

                      I don’t appreciate targeted childish posts because you don’t like what I say

                        Just Walk the walk from Shirley to the Docks and from the Docks to the High Street and then get the gabber from the streets of Weston and Woolston and Bitterne to Merryoak and Townhill Park to Lordshill to Lordswood and from the Warren to St Denys and chuff off at Portswood.

                        The Child is in you because you are frigid to the facts of a hard reality.

                          And you’re just naming places in Southampton.

                          I’m not ignorant of others views and I’ll actually open my eyes when walking through the high street and take note if it’s something I’m averting my eyes from.

                          And if I was a girl from Chilworth I’d still be entitled to an opinion

                          I had my first sexual experience with a girl from Chilworth, I apologise for that anti-elitist/class comment. (I am a Pleb born and raised so I'm a little biased)

                          I think we have a huge problem here in Southampton and it is generic to the rest of this land I reckon. Yes. you should open up your eyes and see. There is a lot to see and it's not all good.

      Sane Alonso Quaner >>> Auba Kola Westwood - 4?

      Or could go Chilwell or Periera instead of Kola in preparation for BGW 31?

      Sane to unpunish those who capped him and punish those who were previously not punished when City play everton? asking for a friend.

      All hope of Aguero been rested is surely gone now after that result.

      I actually hate myself for not doing the Auba switch.

      1. Syd.

        Full strength City squad the next 2

      Aguero 10k net xfers in for a rise
      Auba 17.6k net xfers out for a fall

      0.2m can be gained if we hold off on the Agüero -> Auba move for now.

          I’ll be holding on the move till deadline for that reason

        • scottmac

          I was all set to make this move, however, I really think Aguero will outscore Aub now. Gonna hold off another week

          Mahrez and Sane to start midweek.

        Leicester defender or Kolasinac? (Alonso replacement)

        1. Zladan
          • 1 Year

          Kola

        2. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Same Dilemma. Kola looks good for next three but I've got one eye on BGW 31..

        Klopp babbling nonsense in post game interview. After admitting ref blew the offside non-call and that they were lucky on Rice's big chance miss goes on to conclude that the draw was deserved rather than lucky. He's usually better than that.

        Straight swap Firmino > Laca, I know it’s not Auba but I can’t help think he has more chance of getting points than bobby over next 3? Thoughts?

            Upgrade. Firmino been so poor but hat trick while back papered over the cracks

            Can’t make it work without a big hit so going to go Laca, he could be a very good differentiator if he fires!

        A. Cook/Clyne/Smith (Bou)
        B. Lejeune (New)
        C. Rice/Diop (Whu)
        D. Bennett/Ecuele Manga (Car)
        E. Taylor/Bardsley (Bur)

        Any reasons would also be good. Leaning towards A or B. Have to play blanks.

        Has Everton's bus been serviced recently? Hope for their sake it has because the motivation City will take into this game could be frightening.

            he has a good fixture coming up against Bournemouth who he scored a hattrick against earlier this season
