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's certainly more the obvious route..I really fancy another punt on ma Mané but him scoring the past couple of weeks is putting me off a little..

      Solanke could be an option and use the money in the defence.

        But what about Son?

  4. Super Jack Grealish
    • 6 Years

    Thoughts on what to do with this? First time I've ever actually considered a -8

    Fab, Steele
    Alonso*, TAA, Doherty, Digne, AWB
    Salah, Hazard*, Sane, Pogba, Siggy*
    Rashford, Jimenez, Kamara*.

    2FT 0.2 ITB

    A) Alonso + Hazard + Siggy + Kamara > Kolasinac/Pereira + Son + Punch + Auba (-8)
    B) Hazard + Kamara > Punch + Auba
    C) Hazard > Son
    D) Other

    1. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      B with hayden/dendoncker if you can afford

    2. Solanke
      4 months, 14 days ago

      It's now or never. You'll need to evac them gw27 blankers eventually or just bench all..

  5. jdp219
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    My plan for the next two GWs. Thoughts?
    gw26: Haz > Son
    gw27: Kam, Siggy > Rondon, Fando (-4)

    Fab, Button
    Robbo, Luiz, Doh, AWB, Bednarek
    Salah, Hazard, Sane, Siggy, Pogba
    Rashford, Jimenez, Kamara

    1. kuzser
      • 2 Years

      Good strategy, but who will be your cap gw27?

      1. jdp219
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        Thanks!
        Good question. Was thinking a mid-tier option, actually: Fando, Jim, Rondon. But, of course, there's always Salah, or Son.

        1. kuzser
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          Son against Burnley is a good shout...I have same 11 players and (see below) and thinking who to get first Son or Auba

  6. kuzser
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    With so many people now going for a template front 8 of
    Salah pogba son jota sane/sterling
    Auba Jimenez Rashford 

    Who are you going to bench after bgw 27? 
    Is it not better to go a cheap mid with nice 27,31,33 fixtures (hayden) and save money?

    1. Legomané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Can't even get close to affording that lot..

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Most people will have a cheap mid or fwd, few will have that template

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Where did you get your template details from?

      1. kuzser
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        From all those posh people posting here:))
        Personally have the following and thinking who to get first Son or Auba (if both will have to get rid of sane and hazard)

        FAB, 4.0
        Robbo awb Pereira (schindler digne)
        Sane hazard Salah Anderson pogba
        Rashford Jimenez (kamara)

        1. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          :). OK, but just to be clear - your “posh” 8 is not template. There are several template articles on this site you can reference.

        2. jdp219
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          Tough decision on Son or Auba. Leaning toward Son, myself.

          Hard to argue against Auba's fixtures, though.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      I've got 7 (Sane) of those, Brooks instead of Jota in a 3-4-3. Going to play them all every week until DGWs and Bournemouth's fixture swing intervenes. Bench most weeks is: Brooks, AWB, 3.8.

    5. elchilangles
      4 months, 14 days ago

      I have this except Richarlison instead of Jota, didn't realize it was the most common template.

  7. Tmel

    Ederson
    Robertson Doherty AWB Jonny
    Pogba Salah Haz Sterling
    Jimenez Rash

      Difficult captain choice with Auba, Rashford, Pogba, Salah and Son being good options. I think Pogba and Auba might be better options for captain this week as Liverpool really looked poor tonight

      Always points on the board. Chips do not necessarily mean points.

    3. Jayv807
      • 2 Years

      50 points is nothing with so much time left, I'd rather have the chips to play.

      Aubameyang fixtures & blank GW justify the hit IMHO

    3. dunas_dog

      I would- hud SOU for Auba and CHE blank for Aguero

    Points on the board. Especially as triple Captain is high risk.

  18. ddfc

    Bit of advice please??

    Fabianski
    Doherty VVD Robertson AWB
    Richarlison Salah Pogba Son
    Jimenez Rashford

    Boruc King Dunk Snodgrass

    0 FT, 4.0 ITB

    Thanks

      Nothing worth a hit there mate. GTG

      Thoughts on my lot on post below?

      1. ddfc
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        thanks mate, will do

    2. wulfranian
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Save imo.I would start Snoddy over Awb.

      1. ddfc
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        serious, how many mins did he get earlier?

        1. wulfranian
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 14 days ago

          He was really good today.And i also think that Wham will score.

  19. George James
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    Best move?

    0.2itb. 2FT

    A) Rich >> Jota
    B) Firmino / Alonso >> Auba / Lacelles
    C) Firmino / Rich >> Auba / Ward-Prowse
    D) Something else

    Mccarthy
    AWB • Doherty • Robertson
    Salah • Rich • Sane • Pogba • Son
    Rash • Firmino

    Guatia / Bennet / Alonso / Kamara.

      A or C for me

    4. Carefree Crew
      4 months, 14 days ago

      B Alonso out with City & Blank GW makes sense. Especially at price & poor attacking returns. Aubameyang in with fixtures & fixture blank GW27.

      I have 3, can’t speak for everyone but I assume that’s pretty average.

        Cheers, I'm on 4 plus sane TC with Aguero vice

  21. fedolefan
    • 5 Years

    So who looked the better pick today. Firmino or Mane?

    1. clodhopper
      • 5 Years

      Mane

  22. SMEE_HEEE

      72 with Sane, Kun, and Richarlison. 21 on the bench. Should have played Gunnarsson over Salah 😉

    9. goonchamp
      4 months, 13 days ago

      113 with tc aguero siggy and keane still to play

  23. Duffy Dunk

    Early thoughts for gw26.
    Would you change anything?

    Fabianski
    Robertson Doherty Tomkins
    Salah(V) Sane Pogba Jota
    Auba(C) Rashford Jimenez

    Steele TAA Richarlison Luiz

    1. ddfc
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      really really good team, did you wildcard to get that?

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 14 days ago

        No, I've been building it and taken some hits on the way. Auba and Jota coming in this week for Kamara and Sterling.

    2. CRO KLOPP
      • 1 Year

      GTG

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Keep eye on Jota news as flagged with injury otherwise good team. Steele to Boruc to get some goalie bench cover but only if have transfer you would otherwise lose

  24. ddfc

    anyone expecting a big reaction from Liverpool versus Bournemouth?

    1. Sons and Löwes
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 14 days ago

      I'm expecting some big fortune with the officiating in their favour.

    2. SMEE_HEEE
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 14 days ago

      don't think they will blow them away but an easy 2-0, perhaps 3-0

    Any takers for a United defender in for TAA? *

    *WIth Robertson already in their team

    1. ddfc
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Lindelof

    2. Cake by the pound
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Thinking of doing the same

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Is he not back soon? Seems madness to get rid after keeping for so long... I'm just too stubborn to move him on now. Got trusty W-B to play in case he's out for one more week....

    4. ...al - Leave your comments…
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Aye I'm getting Wan-B baps myself this week so not too bad. Just the double pool double up with one injured isn't ideal!

      But yes after keeping this long it might not be worth it

      I have to see how Kun does on Wednesday, as I have Auba in for Kun penciled in this week

      Might be best to wait for Wednesday before deciding

  26. CRO KLOPP
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 14 days ago

    My ft for this week will be Sane to Son

    Fabianski
    TAA Doherty Kolasinac AWB
    Salah Son Pogba
    Aguero Rashford Jimenez
    (Ederson Richarlison Digne Hoj)

    Would you play someone else or good bench order

  27. Wolfenix
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 14 days ago

    Which team has a better defense and will rack more clean sheets until gw38?

    A) United
    B) Wolves
    C) Palace

    1. lugs
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 14 days ago

      Utd probably

  28. Jeanz

    Firmino stunk this morning.

    I'm 0.1 short of doing Sterling and Firmino -> Mané and Auba (-4). Any other ideas?

    Fabianski Button
    D.Luiz Robbo Digne Doherty AWB
    Sterling Salah Pogba Son Puncheon
    Firmino Rashford Success

    1. CRO KLOPP
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 14 days ago

      There's a chance that Auba drops 0.1 this week

  29. Kiwivillan
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    With Sane C Aguero and Sterling left ML wise would be best for me that Aguero and Sterling don't feature vs Everton

  30. gauzah
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 14 days ago

    Actually thinking to get rid of Sane over Hazard. Fixtures after the blank are looking good. I get the feeling him & Higuain have hit the ground running and he's gonna hit another streak of form.

    Moves this week might be
    Sane > Son
    Rich > Felipe Anderson

    1. Kiwivillan
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 14 days ago

      First game after blank Spurs. Huddersfield making everyone look like Barcelona
