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.

    Is that 3 clean sheets in a row for Fulham? 😮

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      They get clean sheets now Michael Jackson has gone.

    2. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Doherty, Jota & Jimmy -> Who, Who & Who?

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Babel has been great for them, would make a good buy for one of the promoted teams perhaps.

  2. CONNERS

    If baps stay as they are, will be on 111 points with Sterling, Laporte and Ryan to go (no chips used). Hopefully break into top 100k.

    Expect there'll be plenty of 150+ scores this week mind you.

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I hope not.

      Sat on a pretty meagre 70 right now, only had Doherty Jimenez Son and Eriksen today

    2. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Nice! Fingers crossed man

    3. Planet Head
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      On 45 points 🙁

      OR going from 4328 to 9012

      Lord Walder, let it end

    4. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      That’s a monster score - unless city go wild I reckon 111 is going to be right up there. Congrats!

  3. how now brown cow

    So Brighton win and they are basically safe.

    Cue city thumping them gw 38.

    1. Team Cruel
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      And United vs a deflated Cardiff 😯

    2. 4-4-who?
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Brighton won't win. They've forgotten where the opposition's goal is. 'It's over there' shout the crowd...

  4. Champ

    I usually give out about my team, so for once THANKS GUYS! 114 is great

      Nice one - does it beat your dgw score?

      1. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

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

  6. FlyingWithoutIngs
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    97 points with Bernardo, Laporte and lacazette to play. Really needed that, OR up to 24k. Is top 10k still achievable?

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Need to absolutely crush the top 10 k avg next 2 weeks...if so, yes

      1. FlyingWithoutIngs
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Fingers crossed mate gonna give it a good go

    2. Yoshioka
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Doable but highly doubtful. Good luck.

      1. FlyingWithoutIngs
        • 3 Years

        Cheers, I’ll try my best

    3. TheDragon

      Very very Tough but it is possible

  7. Viper
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A Brighton clean sheet would be glorious but can't see it happening

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      yeah Newcastle are goal machines

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 3 Years

  9. RamaJama
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Need Sterling to go insane tomorrow, this annoying Jota bloke ruined my lead in both MLs...

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      need him to get a red card minute 1

  10. Alan The Llama
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Well done Fulham. Not sure I'd be able to survive another season with Warnock in the PL.

  11. makaveli123
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Holy moly. Plenty of luck for me this GW. 119 pts with 4 players left.

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 3 Years

  12. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Surely Brighton won't just park the bus as against Spurs and Wolves?

  13. Jacky boy
    • 4 Years

    1. Pep bites Kun

  14. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    1. drughi

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

  15. Bolivian Seaman
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    What does eveyone think about salah? He has newcastle and wolves next, should I bring sterling in for him?

  16. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Chances of Kun or Razz having a rest tomorrow?
    Got 16 Wilson point waving at me from the bench 🙁

    1. makaveli123
      • 4 Years

      Slim

    2. drughi

    3. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Unlucky. Always happens

    4. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Same here 🙁

  17. STRANGER INGS
    • 4 Years

    1. 4-4-who?
      • 10 Years

      Jesus to start?

  18. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Some mental scores around here seems like...

    Any just about mediocre in comparison?

    70 w/ only Aguero Vardy Pogba Laporte to go.

    1. 4-4-who?
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      60 with 6 to play...feeling inadequate.

    2. makaveli123
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Top 10k average is 69 pts.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeah... red arrow predicted, whoop

    3. Samwise
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      78 with bonus points... sterling ©, aguero and ryan to play

    4. Flynniesta
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Don’t worry pal, I’m only on 59

    5. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      65 with only Kun, Duffy & Sterling to play...very mediocre indeed. Spuds the big let down with Eriksen, Son & Lloris triple up, no Salah hurt big time...Gray/Valery benched too...not great tbh!!

    6. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

    5. Sedemuda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      102 Sterling, Sergio, Laporte & Ryan to go.

    6. bialk
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      37 points for me.

    7. XabiAlonso
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Rubbish

    8. Mambino
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      That's very poor. Where do you think it wrong?

  20. Plymouth
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Really delighted by Diogo J's performance, and Rául's. But. That denied penalty .. Worst decision by the referee ever, and he looked directly at it.

    1. bialk
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes. I needed that penalty to be saved by Foster.

  21. Royal5
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    People who decided not to waste it on Mane last night, what's your plan for the TC?

    1. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Already wasted on Salah

      1. Rainer
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        😀

      2. Royal5
        • 8 Years

        =)

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      "Waste"

      Yeah alright.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        The week Mane was supposedly missing.

    3. bialk
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I decided "not to waste" it thanks to Aubamerang post. Planing to use next week on Aguero.

      1. Royal5
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Not decided yet but leaning towards using it in the last GW on Aguero or Sterling

        1. bialk
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          That make sense.

  22. DV8R
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    What's been the highest top 10k average? Currently on almost 70 with 4 games to go... Has there ever been a 100 point average?

    1. Team Cruel
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Alexis/Kun TC/BB DGW a couple of years ago

  24. Perthite
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I am happy to take AWB's 9pts off the bench to replace Firmino's no show.

    1. Samwise
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      similar with Ward prowse... and went AWB instead of A.A. as a differential, so not the worse either

  25. drughi
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    damn Cardiff was all over Fulham

  26. THFC4LIFE
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    50 points with Ryan Laporte Sterling(c) and Kun left to play, having a stinker

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      only 61 points ahead of you this week, no Ryan 🙁

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • 3 Years

    2. Tev
      • 3 Years

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • 3 Years

        Hopefully pal

  27. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    C choices for 37?

    Jota H to Ful

    Salah A to Newc

    Ster H to Leics

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Aguero or Sterling for me.

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      aguero

    3. drughi
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Aguero or jota

    4. tm245
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I will once again pick the wrong one of Sterling or Aguero.

  28. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Not sure I can bring myself to watch Brighton vs Newcastle.

    1. Mambino
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      it's probably going to be a 6 goal thriller (not)

      1. Samwise
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        as long as ryan gets a hayrick, wouldn't mind...

  29. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Predicted average top 1k on Fantasy football fix now 70.
    So anyone who is above that should get a green arrow unless they are chasing inside the top1k.

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m in top 1k and on 79 - I’m getting a TINY green so not sure how accurate that is

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        That means it is accurate because in the top 1k the standard is even tougher.
        Basically smaller green arrows the higher you go.
        I am just outside 11k and I am getting a smallish green arrow 1kish for getting 78.
        Remember 70 is the average so you need to be getting well above that if you are on that high a rank to make real movement.

  30. I love Spurs
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I hope Jimi and Jota don’t get rested against Fulham.

    We want more!

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      rested for summer carnival ?

    2. ceejay106
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No chance. Fully focused on finishing 7th.
