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
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      They get clean sheets now Michael Jackson has gone.

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

  2. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 21 days ago

    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. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I hope not.

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

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

      Nice! Fingers crossed man

    3. Giggs-Tosun Particle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      On 45 points 🙁

      OR going from 4328 to 9012

      Lord Walder, let it end

    4. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

    So Brighton win and they are basically safe.

    Cue city thumping them gw 38.

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

      And United vs a deflated Cardiff 😯

    2. 4-4-who?
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

  4. JohnRoss

    • 9 Years

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

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

        Yes. Thanks to Liverpool last night

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

      Good news. Would hate to have to lose him before FUL

  6. FlyingWithoutIngs
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days 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
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

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

        Fingers crossed mate gonna give it a good go

    2. Yoshioka
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Doable but highly doubtful. Good luck.

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

        Cheers, I’ll try my best

    3. TheDragon

      Very very Tough but it is possible

  7. Viper
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

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

    1. drughi
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      yeah Newcastle are goal machines

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Passive sarcasm at its best? 🙂

    • 2 Years

      Nice one. I was 136k GW27. Now looking at 9.6k. Have nearly given up several times this season but you have to keep plugging away.

  9. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

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

    1. drughi
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      need him to get a red card minute 1

  10. Alan The Llama
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

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

  11. makaveli123
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

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

    1. Pep bites Kun
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Some massive scores on here this week - well done!

  12. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

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

  13. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years

    1. Pep bites Kun

    2. TheDragon

  15. Bolivian Seaman
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 21 days 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
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 21 days ago

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

    1. makaveli123
      • 3 Years

    3. JohnRoss

  18. Dakes.
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days 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?
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      60 with 6 to play...feeling inadequate.

    2. makaveli123
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Top 10k average is 69 pts.

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

        Yeah... red arrow predicted, whoop

    3. Samwise
        4 months, 21 days ago

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

      • Flynniesta
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Don’t worry pal, I’m only on 59

      • Kung Fu Football
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days 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!!

      • Longlatini

      8. Mambino
        • 5 Years

    5. Plymouth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days 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
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

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

    6. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

      1. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Already wasted on Salah

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

        "Waste"

        Yeah alright.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 21 days ago

          The week Mane was supposedly missing.

      3. bialk
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

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

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

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

          1. bialk
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            That make sense.

      • 8 Years

      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?

    9. Perthite
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

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

      1. Samwise
          4 months, 21 days ago

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

      2. drughi

        C choices for 37?

        Jota H to Ful

        Salah A to Newc

        Ster H to Leics

        1. Would Ed Woodward
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Aguero or Sterling for me.

          • Dakes.
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            aguero

          • drughi
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Aguero or jota

          • tm245
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

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

        2. Would Ed Woodward
            4 months, 21 days ago

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

            1. Mambino
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 21 days ago

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

              1. Samwise
                  4 months, 21 days ago

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

              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.

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

                  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.

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

              We want more!

                No chance. Fully focused on finishing 7th.
