Richarlison fit to start but Fraser drops to the bench

Following West Ham United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the early kick-off, four more Premier League matches get underway at 15:00 BST.

Crystal Palace host Everton, Fulham entertain Cardiff City, Southampton take on Bournemouth, and Watford play Wolverhampton Wanderers in a rematch of their FA Cup semi-final.

Richarlison is fit to start at Selhurst Park, despite being described as a “major doubt” by his manager on Friday.

Lucas Digne has recovered from his own minor injury as Marco Silva names the same starting XI that beat Manchester United last Sunday.

Patrick van Aanholt returns at the expense of Joel Ward in Roy Hodgson’s only change.

Despite slight concerns for owners of Wolves assets over possible rotation, Nuno Espirito Santo keeps faith with the same 11 players that beat Arsenal in midweek.

Javi Gracia has made three changes to his defence, however, with Adrian Mariappa, Kiko Femenia and Jose Holebas replacing Christian Kabasele, Daryl Janmaat and Adam Masina.

Ralph Hasenhuttl looks to have changed shape this afternoon and has reverted to a back four.

Danny Ings and Yan Valery come in for Stuart Armstrong and the ill Maya Yoshida but Shane Long and Ryan Bertrand are fit to start.

Scott Parker and Neil Warnock have made one change apiece for their meeting at Craven Cottage this afternoon.

Tom Cairney returns at the expense of Jean Michael Seri for the Cottagers, while Leandro Bacuna replaces the injured Joe Ralls for Cardiff.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, van Aanholt, Dann, Kelly, Wan-Bissaka, Meyer, Kouyate, McArthur, Milivojevic, Benteke, Zaha.

Subs: Ward, Townsend, Hennessey, Ayew, Batshuayi, Sako, Riedewald.

Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Bernard, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.

Subs: Jagielka, Walcott, Tosun, McCarthy, Stekelenburg, Lookman, Baines.

Fulham XI: Rico, Odoi, Ream, Le Marchand, Bryan, Anguissa, Chambers, Babel, Cairney, Sessegnon, Mitrovic.

Subs: Kebano, Ayite, Christie, Seri, Mawson, Ramirez, Elliott.

Cardiff City XI: Etheridge, Peltier, Morrison, Manga, Bennett, Bacuna, Gunnarsson, Mendez-Laing, Camarasa, Hoilett, Niasse.

Subs: Richards, Ward, Reid, Cunningham, Harris, Brian Murphy, Healey.

Southampton XI: Gunn, Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Bertrand, Hojbjerg, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Ings, Long.

Subs: Austin, Armstrong, Lemina, Targett, Sims, Forster, Ramsay.

Bournemouth XI: Boruc, Aké, Cook, Simpson, Clyne, Gosling, Mepham, Lerma, Brooks, King, Wilson.

Subs: Mousset, Ibe, Hyndman, Fraser, Begovic, Solanke, Surridge.

Watford XI: Foster, Femenia, Cathcart, Mariappa, Holebas, Hughes, Doucoure, Capoue, Pereyra, Gray, Deulofeu.

Subs: Gomes, Janmaat, Success, Masina, Sema, Chalobah, Kabasele.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny, Jimenez, Jota.

Subs: Ruddy, Cavaleiro, Costa, Gibbs-White, Saiss, Vinagre, Traore.

    Brighton all but safe means more chance of them being on the beach in 38, cluTChing at straws here 😆

    Deulofeu>Jota
    Wilson>Rashford - 4

    Yes or no?

    1. elchilangles
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Wolves last couple of games not that great though

    2. STRANGER INGS

      What do we do with Eriksen/Son??

      1. Would Ed Woodward
          3 months, 29 days ago

          I'm getting rid of Eriksen.

          1. TheDragon
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 29 days ago

            100% this - Eriksen to Jota and Gray to Rashford for me this week

            1. Would Ed Woodward
                3 months, 29 days ago

                If i get Rashford, I'd have to bench either him, Jimi or Jota so I think I'm just gonna do Eriksen > Pogba and bench Wilson, two FT for 38.

                  Ye makes sense - 1 United s enough unless they show something tomorrow.

                  You can’t bench wolves this week

                  1. Would Ed Woodward
                      3 months, 29 days ago

                      Assume you're capping either Kun or Sterling, right?

                      1. TheDragon
                        • 1 Year
                        3 months, 29 days ago

                        Definitely - not sure which one though

            2. Dakes.
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 29 days ago

              I'm ditching Eriksen almost certainly, for Sterling. Will probably keep Son...

              1. bialk
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 29 days ago

                Ericsen to Jota

                1. STRANGER INGS
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Already got Jota and Sterling... I'm clueless

                  1. bialk
                    • 9 Years
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    Antonio?

          2. Dakes.
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            Hopefully Vardy, Pogba comes close-ish to Sane, Ryan, Duffy +17pts.... uh oh

            Jota is finally showing that he is the player I thought he was at the start of the season - when he ruined me by blanking continuously

            1. Giggs Boson.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 29 days ago

              Will probably be 7.5m next season.

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  and a striker.

                  1. Giggs Boson.

                    🙁

                3 months, 29 days ago

                I had him in my GW1 team and transferred out after five blanks. It took him time to adjust to the premier league but now he has he’s showing the form we thought he would.

              3. Yoshioka
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  I didn't realise he was only 22 either... looks older. Real prospect.

                • Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Got him back. Had him in my GW 1 team and ditched thinking he'd never return. He's done well since I've brought him back.

                  1. TheDragon
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    Ye I’ve missed his resurgence - I’ll have him for next week

                  2. Giggs Boson.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    The switch to the 352 has been great for him. Was crap out wide!

                3 months, 29 days ago

                Red arrow today with eriksen son Jota and Jimenez! Harsh

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  that is, aye. had all but jota there so kinda expect mine but still annoying

              5. Eat my goal!
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                3 months, 29 days ago

                To keep or lose Eriksen / son??

                1. Pat Bonner
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  See how midweek goes but I’m reluctantly looking at Pogba. Still fancy spurs to do score 2+ at Bournemouth but guess rotation is likely

                  1. Eat my goal!
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    Have they even got the players for rotation

                    But they could easily hold back to save themselves for the second leg

                    1. Pat Bonner
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 8 Years
                      3 months, 29 days ago

                      Yeah that is true, Bournemouth are bad at the back but then I did say the same about West Ham!

                2. Dakes.
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  As above I'll probably lose / keep

                  1. Eat my goal!
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    Son looked well off his game tho, tackled by the grass he was running on

                3. Van der Faart
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Keep one. Probably Son

                Spurs result so frustrating. Was really hoping Eriksen would do well today!

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Flappy was in fine form

                  1. Eat my goal!
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    Shame I played foster instead

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Well depends which way you look at it - very frustrating as a son and Eriksen owner but hilarious in the race for the top 4

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                3 months, 29 days ago

                With a pre-season under his belt, and hopefully some good signings, Hasenhüttl's Saints could hold some good value attacking players next season. They've shown promise.

                1. Pat Bonner
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Spot on. Looks like he’s got a clear style and he's been impressive, could be a few bargains from saints next season

                3 months, 29 days ago

                Wilson first sub so hoping for Aguero or Sterling no show tomorrow! 🙁

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  You don’t deserve this points for benching him 😉

                  1. KickIt
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    3 months, 29 days ago

                    Scored more than my entire bench boost last week

                2. HugeGillsFC
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Same! Don’t fancy the chances of Aguero being benched though...

                3 months, 29 days ago

                Aaaargh! I forgot to triple-captain Salah!

                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 29 days ago

                  Forgot?

                  1. marrog
                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    Yes, forgot. It's hardly a left-field move - surely everyone with Salah and the triple captain chip left did it.

                    I'd be on 111 points with Sterling, Laporte and Ederson still to play. It would have been the saving of my season.

                    You'd think I'd be a bit more on the ball after 12 years of this...

                  I forgot to get Jota and Wilson for this week too - frustrating

                  1. marrog
                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 28 days ago

                    Not me. I just left Jota on the bench instead. Sigh.

                    1. marrog
                      • 10 Years

                      Don't bring in Firmino or bench Mane

                    Eden brace tomorrow would take me over 100. I don’t think I’ve ever supported our opposition 2 games running. Feels bad man

                    1. Would Ed Woodward

                      Guy in work league barely looks at his team, in top 1k and hasn’t even used his wildcard yet! Yes he has Wilson and is on 102 pts for this week so far

                        Thing is if you watch a lot of football you can just make a change here and there based on what you see and still do really well

                        Too much over thinking goes on on here

                          There’s overthinking and there’s not even using a wc!

                            Didn’t pan out well for most who used it

                            Sometimes you just need to stick with form players or good players that have good fixtures

                                this is a good point, I used my wildcard after hours of researching and overthinking and it turned out my pre-wildcard team would have been better!

                          Sometimes you can ruin your squad with a wildcard. Have won my ML on 2 occasions (pre-chips) without using my wildcard

                            Ye I’m not sure either wildcard helped me - I used them as I felt I had to

                                Arrow was green yesterday. Current live rank shows just 5k rise even though my rank isnt any good... I guess those around me have scored well

                            How did Palace look? Should I ditch Zaha for Rashford?

                              Looked terrible could not keep the ball, Zaha played selfish didn't pass the final ball on numerous occasions

                            recommended defender under 5.0 but not from Palace?
                            Shaw?

                              Shaw sounds good, was just looking at him.

                              There's surely a CS or two against Cardiff and Huddersfield.

                                    I'm keeping and benching next week even though I think he could do well against Spurs, it's always a worry whether Bournemouth will bother turning up.

                                      Yeah first half of the season the pair were awesome - dropped them before Christmas and then brought both back in when the fixtures changed - unfortunately made a rash decision to ship Fraser the week he hauled
