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.

    1-0 in favour of Brighton. Duffy scores a goal in the box after a bad clearing from a corner. Ryan makes a 90 minute penalty save for maximum baps

    Too much to ask for?

  8. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Jota owners only have him because they forgot to transfer him out.

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Nope, intended to keep him, whilst my rival made a schoolboy error and transferred him out lol

    • 3 Years

  12. Hybrid.power
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    What an absolutely heartbreaking bench. Wilson, Jota and Valery

    1. LFox
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Oof ... rough.

      1. Hybrid.power
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Doherty, Jimi and JWP. The rest of my team is a given; Three pool, 2 city, son

    2. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

    3. JJO
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      really bad luck
      but more then 3 at the back rarely is succesfull

  13. 16ShimiC16
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Any chance Deu assist gets given? Surely it has to be reviewed at the least

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Zero chance

    2. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      No

  14. LFox
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Well done, you persistent Neves owners ... all the way back to his free-kick against Everton when Jagielka was sent off...

  15. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Jota and Valery in my bench.

    Doucouré and Bednarek in my starting XI.

    KMN lmao.

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Why play the DM over the AM?

      1. tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Thought Doucouré has more chances of getting returns at home than Jota away from home...

        1. PlumaPiedra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

          Sounds like a strange conclusion given the 2 players

  16. teriyaki 69
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Jotaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

    for a moment there I doubted playing him over Redmond when he assisted long.

  17. JONALDINHO
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago
