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.

    Brighton all but safe means more chance of them being on the beach in 38, cluTChing at straws here 😆

      Deulofeu>Jota
      Wilson>Rashford - 4

      Yes or no?

      1. elchilangles
          2 months, 4 hours ago

          Wolves last couple of games not that great though

        What do we do with Eriksen/Son??

        1. Would Ed Woodward
            2 months, 4 hours ago

            I'm getting rid of Eriksen.

              100% this - Eriksen to Jota and Gray to Rashford for me this week

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                  2 months, 4 hours ago

                  If i get Rashford, I'd have to bench either him, Jimi or Jota so I think I'm just gonna do Eriksen > Pogba and bench Wilson, two FT for 38.

                    Ye makes sense - 1 United s enough unless they show something tomorrow.

                    You can’t bench wolves this week

                    1. Would Ed Woodward
                        2 months, 4 hours ago

                        Assume you're capping either Kun or Sterling, right?

                          Definitely - not sure which one though

                I'm ditching Eriksen almost certainly, for Sterling. Will probably keep Son...

                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 4 hours ago

                  Ericsen to Jota

                  1. STRANGER INGS
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    Already got Jota and Sterling... I'm clueless

                    1. bialk
                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 4 hours ago

                      Antonio?

            2. Dakes.
              • 2 Years

              Hopefully Vardy, Pogba comes close-ish to Sane, Ryan, Duffy +17pts.... uh oh

              Jota is finally showing that he is the player I thought he was at the start of the season - when he ruined me by blanking continuously

                Will probably be 7.5m next season.

                1. Would Ed Woodward
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    and a striker.

                      🙁

                  I had him in my GW1 team and transferred out after five blanks. It took him time to adjust to the premier league but now he has he’s showing the form we thought he would.

                3. Yoshioka
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    I didn't realise he was only 22 either... looks older. Real prospect.

                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    Got him back. Had him in my GW 1 team and ditched thinking he'd never return. He's done well since I've brought him back.

                    1. TheDragon
                      • 1 Year
                      2 months, 4 hours ago

                      Ye I’ve missed his resurgence - I’ll have him for next week

                      2 months, 4 hours ago

                      The switch to the 352 has been great for him. Was crap out wide!

                  2 months, 4 hours ago

                  Red arrow today with eriksen son Jota and Jimenez! Harsh

                  1. Dakes.
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    that is, aye. had all but jota there so kinda expect mine but still annoying

                5. Eat my goal!
                    2 months, 4 hours ago

                    To keep or lose Eriksen / son??

                    1. Pat Bonner
                      • 7 Years
                      2 months, 4 hours ago

                      See how midweek goes but I’m reluctantly looking at Pogba. Still fancy spurs to do score 2+ at Bournemouth but guess rotation is likely

                      1. Eat my goal!
                          2 months, 4 hours ago

                          Have they even got the players for rotation

                          But they could easily hold back to save themselves for the second leg

                          1. Pat Bonner
                            • 7 Years
                            2 months, 4 hours ago

                            Yeah that is true, Bournemouth are bad at the back but then I did say the same about West Ham!

                      2. Dakes.
                        • 2 Years
                        2 months, 4 hours ago

                        As above I'll probably lose / keep

                        1. Eat my goal!
                            2 months, 4 hours ago

                            Son looked well off his game tho, tackled by the grass he was running on

                        2. Van der Faart
                          • 7 Years
                          2 months, 4 hours ago

                          Keep one. Probably Son

                        Spurs result so frustrating. Was really hoping Eriksen would do well today!

                          2 months, 4 hours ago

                          Flappy was in fine form

                          1. Eat my goal!
                              2 months, 4 hours ago

                              Shame I played foster instead

                              2 months, 4 hours ago

                              Well depends which way you look at it - very frustrating as a son and Eriksen owner but hilarious in the race for the top 4

                            With a pre-season under his belt, and hopefully some good signings, Hasenhüttl's Saints could hold some good value attacking players next season. They've shown promise.

                            1. Pat Bonner
                              • 7 Years
                              2 months, 4 hours ago

                              Spot on. Looks like he’s got a clear style and he's been impressive, could be a few bargains from saints next season

                            2 months, 4 hours ago

                            Wilson first sub so hoping for Aguero or Sterling no show tomorrow! 🙁

                            1. TheDragon
                              • 1 Year
                              2 months, 4 hours ago

                              You don’t deserve this points for benching him 😉

                              1. KickIt

                                2 months, 4 hours ago

                                Scored more than my entire bench boost last week

                            2. HugeGillsFC
                              • 3 Years
                              2 months, 3 hours ago

                              Same! Don’t fancy the chances of Aguero being benched though...

                            Aaaargh! I forgot to triple-captain Salah!

                            1. Uncle Gamst
                              • 7 Years
                              2 months, 4 hours ago

                              Forgot?

                              1. marrog
                                • 10 Years
                                1 month, 29 days ago

                                Yes, forgot. It's hardly a left-field move - surely everyone with Salah and the triple captain chip left did it.

                                I'd be on 111 points with Sterling, Laporte and Ederson still to play. It would have been the saving of my season.

                                You'd think I'd be a bit more on the ball after 12 years of this...

                              I forgot to get Jota and Wilson for this week too - frustrating

                                Not me. I just left Jota on the bench instead. Sigh.

                                Eden brace tomorrow would take me over 100. I don’t think I’ve ever supported our opposition 2 games running. Feels bad man

                                  Guy in work league barely looks at his team, in top 1k and hasn’t even used his wildcard yet! Yes he has Wilson and is on 102 pts for this week so far

                                      Thing is if you watch a lot of football you can just make a change here and there based on what you see and still do really well

                                      Too much over thinking goes on on here

                                        There’s overthinking and there’s not even using a wc!

                                            Didn’t pan out well for most who used it

                                            Sometimes you just need to stick with form players or good players that have good fixtures

                                                this is a good point, I used my wildcard after hours of researching and overthinking and it turned out my pre-wildcard team would have been better!

                                          Sometimes you can ruin your squad with a wildcard. Have won my ML on 2 occasions (pre-chips) without using my wildcard

                                            Ye I’m not sure either wildcard helped me - I used them as I felt I had to

                                              recommended defender under 5.0 but not from Palace?
                                              Shaw?

                                                Shaw sounds good, was just looking at him.

                                                There's surely a CS or two against Cardiff and Huddersfield.

                                                  What time will Duffy score his second goal today?

                                                      Maybe 3 BAPS too...

                                                        Knowing my luck this week it’ll be Dunk who scores not Duffy (I’ve benched Dunk :o)

                                                            Hopefully we get a Kun haul tomorrow.

                                                      I'm looking at a nice 2200 place jump into the Top 10 k (7909)....Cmon Duffy and need City (Kun/Sterling) to smash and grab tomorrow....would love to get near my all time best finish of 2364!

                                                        Would you accept a Sterling no show and Jota off the bench?
