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.

      Any hope of Sterling getting No minutes tomorrow? All those lovely Wilson points on the bench and rival has nothing to come in for him

      No. Thought not

      1. Bartowski
        • 9 Years

        No chance

      Wilson & Fraser are iconic.

        Wilson, i wish i could hate you on a much larger level than i already do

        WHEEEEEL SOOOOOOOON

      • Would Ed Woodward
          5 months, 26 days ago

          So I should've actually benched Jimi instead of Jota, never really considered that, was always Jota or Wilson.

            Should of benched Jimmy not Wilson 🙁

            1. Would Ed Woodward
                5 months, 26 days ago

                I don't feel bad though because I never considered it.

              • 5 Years
              5 months, 26 days ago

              Was always Jota for me, played Jimenez and Wilson as Jota hasn’t done much away from home but now hoping for a Sterling/Kun no show which looks impossible

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                  5 months, 26 days ago

                  We probably have the same team, lol.

              Wilson and Fraser easily most annoying players this season

              Wilson Troll of the season

                • 2 Years

                I think so for me

              Jimenez injury look bad? Precautionary sub or enforced?

                • 8 Years
                5 months, 26 days ago

                Looks a knock

                When he came off he shook Nuno's hand and it looked like Nuno asked if it was serious and Jimenez shook his head no.
                Of course can't be sure what was said but that's what it looked like.

              Wish I had another BB to use this week... started Ward Prowse and Gray who both scored but also benched Jota and Wan Bissaka...

              5 months, 26 days ago

              Sold Wilson for -4 for DCL to get Salah in. Rival in 50 quid lead has him. I am RAGING!!!!!

                Wilson misses chance 1 on 1 with keeper.

                Wilson misses a chance for a hat-trick! Decent save

                Wilson cost me my ML last season by scoring in the last minute of the last game and now he's doing it again. F*** Wilson

                  And I benched Jota as well

                  took out jiminez for firmnino... not feeling too bad as kept Wilson and was debating between them. I have Ward-prowse to come in off the bench for firmino too
