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

    2. Van der Faart

      Oh and he's just scored again. Wilson going to cost me ML lead.

    Wilson & Fraser are iconic.

  8. Mo Mané Mo Problems
    • 6 Years

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

  11. Differentiator

    WHEEEEEL SOOOOOOOON

  12. Would Ed Woodward

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

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Should of benched Jimmy not Wilson 🙁

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

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

    2. MMN
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month 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
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        We probably have the same team, lol.

  15. Bubz

    Wilson and Fraser easily most annoying players this season

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I got rid of both for hits.

      1. Bubz
        • 6 Years

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I think so for me

    Jimenez injury look bad? Precautionary sub or enforced?

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Looks a knock

    2. FlockofSeagulls
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      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.

  21. Ruinenlust

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

  22. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

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

  25. LFox

  26. Gobigorgohome

  27. FPL DONKEY

    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

    1. FPL DONKEY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      And I benched Jota as well

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Me too. 700 quid on the line too. I sold him to get Salah in. Absolutely raging.

  28. Samwise
    • 1 Year

    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

    1. Jacky boy
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago
