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.

    Wilson been huge differential for me in last two away games since everyone else played wildcard. Only kept him for Fulham home game inbetween! (2pts). Oh he’s just missed a one on one as well. Wow

      Cool story

    2. S.Kuqi

      Same here. 33 points in last 3 gws 🙂

    First time I've had Wilson since his endless run of 2-pointers last season.

    You are finally forgiven, Callum.

    1. Pad Randa
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Yeah, he's been a nice late add, even if Vardy did make me regret selling him recently.

    2. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 24 days ago

      Think it's the first time ever he has given me points.

  3. Pad Randa
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Of course, the minute I sell Diop (for Yedlin), he pops up with 9 points. Can't even be mad at this point, it's too funny.

    Predicted a Wilson haul - 96pts now! I’m gonna brag all I want cause these weeks rarely come around

      Look at Watford's penalty in the FA cup semi - minimal contact

  13. Top Lad Dakes.

    Ouch. Rank boost from yesterday wiped out, dropping like a stone now with only Jimenez and Doherty today...

  14. tm245

    AWB!

    That should be a pen

  17. Samwise

      Bet on Wolves to finish above West Ham at the start of the season... bet won 🙂

      1. Samwise
          6 months, 24 days ago

          shame it was with a friend and not the bookies... anyone know what the odds would have been? or how to find out?

      2. Would Ed Woodward
          6 months, 24 days ago

          3 BAPS for AWB, standard.

        • Rainer

          • 3 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          Deulofeu...

          "There is no assist for the Gray goal. Deulofeu loses possession from Patricio’s tackle, before the ball goes to Gray who scores. Deulofeu was not attempting a shot or pass, so no assist is awarded"

          1. FlockofSeagulls
            • 2 Years
            6 months, 24 days ago

            Correct decision. Thought exactly the same thing watching it live.

        • drughi
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          clear penalty for wolves, referee needs to do something else as a occupation

        • LFox

          6 months, 24 days ago

          "YOUR WINGERS DON'T LIKE HIM ..."

          Benched him but what a player!

        • Mo Mané Mo Problems
          • 5 Years

          26 points on bench GW34
          14 GW35
          28 GW36

          Boosted in GW35 ofc

          1. DV8R

            • 8 Years
            6 months, 24 days ago

            I saw your team, how did you not have a GWR or OR in GW2?

            1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 24 days ago

              Deleted team cos didn’t want to play

              Reactivated before GW3 as friends begged me to play

              1. Jacky boy
                • 3 Years
                6 months, 24 days ago

                didn't know we can still delete our teams on fpl

                1. Mo Mané Mo Problems
                  • 5 Years
                  6 months, 24 days ago

                  Yep you can. They don’t make it obvious .cos people would quit all the time

        • Pad Randa
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          No TC, but did finally get rid of my Bench Boost - on 78 as of right now (though Everton are making me nervous about Guaita and Obi-Wan) before BAPs with Haz, Pogba, Rondon, Yedlin and Sterling still to go. Decent haul, looks like, although it appears this week has inflated all our scores.

        • Van der Faart
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 24 days ago

          If I'd played Wilson instead of Son I'd have hit 100. Might still with Ryan, Laporte and Sterling. However if Sterling was to miss the game I wouldn't be too upset

        • Samwise
            6 months, 24 days ago

            who's broken 100?

            1. Top Lad Dakes.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              not even close here

              1. Samwise
                  6 months, 24 days ago

                  me neither on 65... my rival has 95, with auger, laporte and sterling still to play...
                  I just have sterling © aguero and ryan

              My bench reads:

              JWP: 9
              Valery: 4
              Kelly: 6

              Meanwhile Son and Eriksen got 4 points between them for me.
