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.

    Etheridge 4.0
    Robo Trippier AWB 3.9 3.9
    Pogba Son Hazard Salah 4.4
    Firmino Jiménez Rashford
    2 FT, 1.1

    Best GW26 Option:
    A. Firmino + Hazard > Auba + Jota
    B. Firmino + Hazard > Auba + Mane
    C. Firmino + Trippier > Auba + Kola
    D. Firmino + Trippier > Auba + Pereira
    E. Firmino + Trippier > Auba + Doherty

    1. elchilangles

      how about A but with Moutinho instead of Jota to free up some extra bank?

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

        Jota is playing up front, has better stats and average score..
        plus don’t think I need more money considering Option A would give me 4.1 ITB... 🙂

        1. Jayv807
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          there will come a time where you are 0.1m short for a transfer you want to do and you'll be cursing the fact you went Jota over Moutinho 🙂

          That said, I'd probably go with A

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

            I hear ya.. just super weary of having an average asset.. takes a while to replace them..

    2. Boo Ya Ka Sha
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      A then upgrade a 3.9 defender the following week

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

        That’s been the plan all along.. get Periera in for 3.9 in GW27.
        But Mane fgoals over the last 2 weeks plus fear of letting funds sit around for another 2 weeks has confused me..

  2. elchilangles

    after leaving 19 points on the bench and getting a rubbish score this week I'd like to ask for advice for line-up this week:

    Etheridge
    Robbo, AWB, Doherty
    Pogba, Sané, Salah (c), Son
    Jimenez, Rashford, Auba
    (Duffy, Moutinho, Peltier)

    sound about right????

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yes very good team

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Assuming Etheridge CS Peltier would get CS Moutinho nice home fixture. Duffy always a goal threat. That bench could massively troll you again

    3. Jayv807
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      as someone with 20 points on the bench, I am not qualified to assist however, I think you got the lineup correct.

  3. Jayv807
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Which option? Will only bring in Son this week unless Jota is out, then I would take a hit to do both transfers.

    1. Sane/Kamara to Son/Barnes (leaving 0.7m ITB)
    2. Sterling/Kamara to Son/Jiminez (leaving 1.3m ITB)

    Current squad

    Etheridge, Guaita
    Robertson, Lindelof, Jonny, AWB, Bednarek
    Salah, Sterling, Sane, Pogba, Jota
    Auba, Rashford, Kamara

    1. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Don't need Jimenez with Jota as id imagine it would be a benching headache each week

  4. BARIO MALOTELLI
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Should o do
    A) kdb to son
    Or
    B)kdb and kamara to laca and a cheap midfielder like hayden
    Cheers

    1. Jayv807
      • 2 Years

      A for sure

      1. BARIO MALOTELLI
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks for help god bless you fpl manager

  5. Boo Ya Ka Sha

    When was Jota flagged?

  6. baps sniffer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Besides Hazard, who has been the biggest troll for you?

    Sané 5 matches and 9pts for me so far.

    1. BARIO MALOTELLI
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Sane one of them for sure but its actualy peps fault fkin pep roulete... ps i did tc sane this gw

    2. Toby Lerone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Hazard definitely. Take him out and he hauls! Don't think I'll own him again this season... Maybe in the dgw

    3. Boo Ya Ka Sha
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Haz, Auba, Ederson, Kane, Rich, Anderson.. I can keep going

    4. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Lacazette

    5. Gabistuta
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Pool assets mainly. Held Firmino and Mane way too long, Salah didnt hold long enough, brought TAA in twice for him to get injured both times

  7. Toby Lerone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Sterling & firmino > Son & Auba -4?

    1. BARIO MALOTELLI
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Looks good i would love to transfer those two but auba too expensive

    2. Jayv807
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      That is a tough one to be honest, Firmino could bounce back against Bournemouth and match Auba. Arsenal have been a bit rubbish away from home too. Maybe just the Sterling to Son move this week?

  8. BigBillyBass
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is Everton City being televised on Wednesday?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 8 Years

      Not in the UK

      1. BigBillyBass
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Gutted

  9. murty1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Firmino owners..
    Selling before Bournemouth?

    1. murty1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Want Jimenez and really disliking Firmino atm but is Bournemouth @home the time to make the change?

      It does allow Son in for Rich in fairness.

    2. Boo Ya Ka Sha
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Same dilemma. Would only do it if it meant getting Mane and Auba in return

    3. jimmyabs1987
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I have had it with Firmino, I have transferred him for Laca! Everyone overlooking Laca but 3 goals in last 4 games and Emery seems to like both of them now playing together

  10. Beinahruga

    Fabi - boruc
    David luiz - Robbo - Bedne- Bennett - AWB
    Son - Salah - mane - Sterling - pogba
    Rash - Jimi - Ings

    Sterling - Ings > Auba - Camarasa for -8
    Sterling - David > Auba - kola for -8
    worth it or just save ?

  11. BARIO MALOTELLI

    Everton vs City score predictions?

    1. La Roja
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      City could field under 21’s and still destroy that rubbish Everton defence

      0-4

    2. Norman Conquest
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      city will have their tails up after liverpool result so 3 or 4 goals to nil i should imagine

    3. LarryDuff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Kill them off in the first half

  13. Skull And Gnomes 9

    I've been informed that fasting may do me a lot of good.

    I'm not talking Bobby Sands or the Islam thing, but as a health benefit.

    Any thoughts?

    1. La Roja
      • 7 Years

      You seem like you’re looking for a purpose of life

      Hang in there son

      If done correctly there is great benefit. If done incorrectly it's very dangerous. Research properly and build up to a decent length fast over time.

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

        I will do the research. Thank you.

        What would you consider as "great benefit"?

        1. Alan The Llama

          - Much clearer understanding of what your body requires and wants in terms of quantity and nutrition.

          - For longer fasts, significant inflammation reduction. Had a few older aches and pains that went away after 2nd decent fast. One was at me for 20 years. Gone.

          - Increased energy levels and mental sharpness. Helps if you ease back into a clean diet and stay that way.

          - Weight loss, but more importantly, understanding the weight loss and what's happening inside as a result of poor diet.

          I started with intermittent fasting, 8hrs per day. Did that for a couple of weeks and upped it to 10hrs per day. Then 12hrs for a month or so before first full day fast. Longest fast taken to date is just over 4 days. Would like to eventually get to a week and do that once a year. Its an interesting process, learned a lot about myself.

          All sorts of fancy mumbo-jumbo online about it but they're my thoughts, albeit brief.

      Actually yes. Just one day a week of maybe a “fruit only day” or just “fruit and cereal” is a great idea.

      Try it...I bet you end up doing it twice a week.

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9

      According to Wikipedia:

      Weight loss: "fasting for periods shorter than 24 hours, known as intermittent fasting, have been shown to be effective for weight loss in obese and healthy adults and to maintain lean body mass"

      Mental health: "fasting improved alertness, mood, and subjective feelings of well-being, possibly improving overall symptoms of depression"

      Medical benefit: "fasting at certain hours of the day, especially during those hours of the day which are recommended as part of the Muslim tradition (Islamic fasting), is very effective in reducing the effects of osteoporosis"

      The benefits of fasting are mostly believed, not scientifically proven.

      Disclaimer: I'm Muslim, fast regularly.

    Any Burnley experts out there? Is McNeil likely to keep playing or does Brady threaten his minutes? His stats look good for a fifth mid.
    Or is Westwood the safer pick?

          You can't complain about GW score with players in play. What if Sane plays and double point hauls?

          1. Ole Gunnar be juan winner

      Pah, there’s a good chance you get 13 points off the bench. But us Sane captainers definitely need a return on Wednesday.

        He’s a damned sight better at corners and set pieces than Salah.

      C but you'll have to manage Sane carefully in City's upcoming BGW/DGWs after 27 and of course survive Pep rotation

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        yeah i just feel that Sterling is more nailed than Sane

    A) Ederson, Sane, Rich, Firmino +12 pts

    I watched the highlights from Lei-Manu.What a performance from Harvey Barnes.At 5.5 is a decent option from gw27 and after.

      who?

        Yeah.. at 5.5 that's a good shout but I'd rather have Jota

          Attacker vs Mid

        2. Srv210
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Or Moutinho more in that 5.5 range...I'm also looking at almiron when he starts playing

    2. fedolefan
      • 4 Years

      Picking Leicester attacker is asking for trouble. Puel just trolltates more than Pep.

  21. bigbudgie

    Man Utd just 14 points behind Liverpool now. Come on OGS!

    1. Srv210

      Pool look like they are not handling pressure well

  22. Zilla
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    A) Auba + Fraser + TAA
    B) Higuain + Son + 4.0

    Damn it MO!!!!

    Now I just need one more benching to turn a bad GW to worst.

    Got around 54 points from my so called cheaper players and all big guns auba,Salah,sane combine to give me 4 points...I hate this game !!

      Wow fabianski, didn’t see it coming

        Injury panic and Boruc heroics in 24 didn't help

      Cheers R, a Foster price increase ... miracles can happen after all.

        He's been impressive. Was so close to getting him instead of Fabs in GW17.

      I would celebrate too if I had TC on Kun.
      Cheers, have a lot of beautiful moments in the following year.

    Only had Salah last night, hopefully he won't become captain due to Sane.
    Terrible Liverpool or decent West Ham.
    Feel I got lucky FPL wise.

    1. Srv210
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Really man ,I can't remember the name but want to thank the person who told me to play Felipe when I was completely against it..

      1. Srv210
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Got the name ,shoutout to rolling the dice ..

    2. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I’m in the same boat, but why do you feel you got lucky, Salah captainers missing out? What if we don’t get any Sane minutes arghhhh

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Pool defence mainly. Probably won't get any defence until 28/29

        1. Danno - Emre Canada
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Arrrr yeah, I hear you. I only have TAA, every time Robertson gets to that line......
          I have no idea what to do with Sané and Hazard from now, any ideas?

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            See how midweek goes. Hazard looked great but Hudds are terrible.

            1. Danno - Emre Canada
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Yep that’s the issue, Huddersfield coating it somewhat. Hazard is a decent differential for me

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Hopefully Sane ends up with highest City score. 2 goals assist CS 19pts Kun benched

      1. Srv210
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        How I wish for this to happen..it's worse when all premiums end up with a poor show ..Salah,auba,sane(till now) all failing me

      2. Amey
        2 months, 19 days ago

        It's my last hope kiwi 😉
        I think he can give 2 attacking return's

  28. Amey
    2 months, 19 days ago

    0-0 would have been much better 🙁

  29. Gruu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    if sane start vs everton, what's his chance to play vs chelsea?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Depends how well he plays.
      Pep picks team for the opposition.

  30. Nutsmuts
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Mane essential?

    1. LarryDuff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Becoming more clinical and getting chances, but not essential

    2. Kane Toads
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Perhaps Sane > Mane ( + Salah) going forward and go without City mids..
