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.

    Which move would you prefer? Going to captain Sterling regarding the moves.
    A) Firmino + Eriksen > Kun + Mili
    B) Eriksen + King > Bilva + Rashford/Zaha

    Another Doherty masterclass and a goal from Jimenez would do nicely today.

      Hope so

      Like all season, that will likely happen and punish me again!

    Rest of the matches today are pretty boring tbh.

    1. kalmoffit

      Triple Soton here. I think not.

      wolves watford could be a goalfest. or a snoozefest.

    3. Canary_Kid
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Watford Wolves?

    4. Carlton_Goal
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Think Watford v Wolves could be a goalfest. Fulham v Cardiff is kind of important although still probably a boring game

    brought in Firmino and Fraser for a hit this week. yay : )

    1. kalmoffit

      Yeuck painful stuff. Stuff like that makes me feel not as bad about not going for Salah and instead keeping Eriksen, yada yada.

      Hard luck mate

    Antonio:

    "This celebration is from a guy called Dan Rue on Instagram who does these crazy dance moves. I have been busting it out in the clubs and I thought I have to bring it on the pitch. I love to bring out a bit of personality out there."

    Lmao. BBC Sport live text also has a video of said Dan Rue doing it. Weird but funny stuff.

      Lol. I love that celebration tbh

    is there anyone here who rived TC from Mane and stuck it on son following the Mane benching rumours? Absolutely heart shattering that.

    1. Top Lad Dakes.

      Thankfully I was on the sh*tter when those numpties came with the Mane foolishness.

      Not sure I'd have fallen for it but unlucky for those that did.

      Tad unlucky but also could it not have been cancelled? Prime candidates in the Liverpool game but if not using it then, still better options in 37 and 38 than Son this week

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years

        How can you make that decision in 45 seconds?

  25. Hazz

    Who'd have though Long would ever go on a scoring spree?

    60 Crawley fans have travelled to Carslisle to watch the match and they're two down already.
