Fantasy interest minimal as relegation-threatened Villa face crucial Palace clash

It’s not quite last-chance saloon territory for Aston Villa but, seven points adrift of safety and with only four matches remaining, a victory over Crystal Palace is surely a must this afternoon if they want to keep their slim chances of avoiding relegation alive.

Kick-off at Villa Park is at 14:15 BST.

Both managers originally made one change apiece from the sides they sent out in Gameweek 34+ but an injury to Kortney Hause (£4.4m) in the warm-up has seen Ahmed Elmohamady (£4.1m) replace him.

Dean Smith has also recalled Conor Hourihane (£5.7m) to the Villa midfield, with Anwar El Ghazi (£5.3m) dropping to the bench.

That should see Jack Grealish (£6.0m) move to a more advanced position down the left of the hosts’ attack.

Keinan Davis (£4.3m) is only among the substitutes, as is the fit-again Matt Targett (£4.3m).

Pepe Reina (£4.2m) recovers from a hamstring strain to start.

Roy Hodgson’s one alteration is an enforced one.

Gary Cahill (£4.4m) looks set to miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury, so Mamadou Sakho (£5.0m) gets the nod to replace him at centre-half.

Budget FPL defender Martin Kelly (£4.1m) is back on the bench after recovering from a calf problem.

It’s fair to say interest is limited in this one from a Fantasy perspective.

Grealish is the only player in either starting XI who has a double-digit ownership in Fantasy Premier League.

‘Ghost teams’ will account for some of that ownership and, if we instead look at the top 10,000 in FPL, not a single player from either Villa or Palace is owned by more than 3%.

Grealish’s ownership within this elite group is only at 2.13%.

Nine of Palace’s ten clean sheets this season have come against sides in the bottom half.

The Villans have scored just twice in their last eight Premier League matches.


Aston Villa XI: Reina, Elmohamady, Konsa, Mings, Taylor, McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Hourihane, Trezeguet, Samatta, Grealish.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Ward, Dann, Sakho, van Aanholt, Zaha, Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Ayew, Benteke.

    Can they just stop this game and deduct 3points from both teams?
    And ban this referee team for next 10 games at the same time

    Maybe time to look to play in a league that does add bonus or has any captains. Perhaps only allow a chip to be played in a single GW. Try and make the game as pure as possible.

        no fkc me, they look useless. Digne is wasted out of position. Rich looks like someone who has been circumcised an hr before the game...pickford...well...I think my labrador is a better keeper.

      Been sitting on my bench scratching his arse for a while. Funds just aren't an issue anymore with Greenwood and Ings...

      Who are you thinking? Giroud?

      1. Christina.
        • 10 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        I dunno he is on shortlist. I also have Deeney to deal with.

      • 2 Years

      Honestly I finally got rid of him this week and feels so good.

      He has single handedly ruined my season post restart

          He has just gone super non template this year and it’s not worked out - another year he’d be top 100

            story of my life

  5. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • 5 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Doherty+Jimenez to Boly+Jesus for free?
    Would mean no Chelsea attack in my team

    1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Looks good

    2. Royal5
      • 8 Years

      Doherty cs against Burnley surely.

      1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • 5 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Doherty to Boly. Both wolves defenders

  6. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Non-Grealish Villa goal to ruin PVA CS would be good.

  7. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Need to close ML gap. (Already did TAA & Nketiah to VVD & Jesus for -4 hit)

    DDG (Martin)
    VVD, Saiss, Holgate (Kiko, Lascelles)
    Kdb, Willian, MANE, Bruno (Saka)
    Kane, Greenwood, Jesus (c)

    Big risk time. for - 8 hit, Mane to bring in one of these TC options:

    A) Sterling
    B) Pulisic
    C) Salah

    1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Taking hits widens the gap, it doesn't close it

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      Wait for leaked lineups and if pulisic starts it could wprk out otherwise dont take the hit imo

  8. Easy Cheesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Had kdb, foden and mahrez since gw34 WC, before which I had kdb and foden. Do you just stick with it and count yourself unlucky or -4/8 to get the ones generating the returns - i.e. jesus, da silva and sterling. Can’t tell if I’ve made a bad call or just been unlucky.

    1. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      I have the same combo. City are smashing teams. Our turn will come

      1. Easy Cheesy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Good to hear. Frustrating! If I do nothing (which I know I should do as my WC was well thought through) then I might save up 2 FTs and some money so I can at least bring in any midfield combo in the last GW (assuming we find out who is playing).

  9. Rolls-Royce

    Vardy and Auba blank, and top 10K would be secured for tonight.

    1. Christina.
      • 10 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      only 800 in top 10k owns Auba

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Nice. Where you at Tina?

        1. Christina.
          • 10 Years
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          struggling outside top 10k. Salah killed me last wk.

          15 pts outside 10k OR

          DDG, Vardy, Saka, Bruno(c) to go

          1. Rolls-Royce
            • 6 Years
            23 days, 17 hours ago

            Salah killed me this week. Did Mahrez-> Salah for a hit.

            You looking to get Salah or going without?

            1. Christina.
              • 10 Years

  10. EgyptianKing
    • 2 Years

    Walker Jimenez —> Egan Jesus (free)?

    Have KDB and Sterling

    1. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Probably better off transferring those two out this game week.

      Sterling and KdB rested/benched.

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Always difficult to predict...

        I would say both should get minutes - either start and get 60 min, or be benched and get 20 / 30.

        I do not feel very comfortable selling KDB or Sterling before BOU tbh

        1. jamiejoe
          • 4 Years
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          Pep has said he is making 5 or 6 changes.

          I suspect it's the attacking players.

          This one is simple to see.

          2. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 3 Years
            23 days, 17 hours ago

            Which means what? Fullbacks, maybe both cb, dilva and gundogan in midfield? Who knows?

            1. Pipermaru
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              23 days, 16 hours ago

              My bet is Laporte, Walker, KDB are most likely to miss out BOU, then probably Mahrez.

  11. THFC4LIFE
    • 3 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Is anyone else considering selling TAA and going without Liverpool assets?

    1. Christina.
      • 10 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      maybe me

    2. Nomar
      • 10 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      On FH maybe.

    3. Kroneek
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Will still have Salah. Really just unsure who to replace TAA with. Not like Chelsea defence is smashing it. ARS v LIV always entertaining - if TAA starts, he can score some points.

    4. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Sold this week to fund Salah. Think I will keep Salah now until the end.

    5. Shankly611
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      TAA has now been my only LFC for two gameweeks. Won't sell him as I have more important transfers to do, but I don't think it will be a huge mistake if you sell him, especially if you use the funds right.

      1. jamiejoe
        • 4 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Aren't you using Free Hit chip?

        1. THFC4LIFE

        2. Shankly611
          • 4 Years
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          I am, but I'm talking about the last two gameweeks. He'll stay in my team until the end.

  12. Shankly611
    • 4 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    FH team

    Ederson
    TAA Azpi Digne
    DSilva Foden Pulisic Willian Antonio
    Ings Greenwood

    Good for now? If it becomes more certain that Jesus/Sterling start, I could buy them

    1. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      I like it.

      I'm similar at the moment.

      Fancy TAA to do well again? Away at Arsenal... Could do.

    2. ryacoo
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Dilva and Foden are tempting but I reckon Sterling KDB start

  13. dshv

    Pulisic or Willian (C) next GW?

    1. Almathkourq8
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Willian

    2. Nomar
      • 10 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      After last night I can’t trust either with it.

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Its norwich.

        You wouldn't have trusted Antonio with it. Take a risk.

    3. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Pulisic.

    4. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Pulisic if I had to choose

      They were so bad against Sheff Utd though. Also I’m concerned that Pulisic came off so early, what was that?

  15. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Trezeguet G

  16. Karan14
    • 4 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Jesus or Ings for the last 3 gameweeks?

    1. Nomar
      • 10 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Jesus

    2. Almathkourq8
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Jesus

    3. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Both, with Jimi to Jesus for me.

    4. Goonsquad245
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Jesus for me. Think there’s a lot more upside. Ings safer

    5. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Ideally both.

      1. Karan14
        • 4 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Can only have one honestly.
        I'm keeping faith in Rashford till GW37 and got 5 midfielders.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 6 Years
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          In that case Ings. Jesus is due a rest.

    Rate my FH team !

    Ederson
    Laporte azp Digne
    KdB bruno Salah Willian Richarlison
    Giroud Ingsy

    Any ideas?

    Tempting to have Antonio but who to sell !

    1. V-2 Schneiderlin

        Thank you

    2. Shankly611
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      KDB is almost certain to benched, as well as Lapote. Salah isn't the best option this GW. Also, I think there are better options than Richarlison. Foden and DSilva should be sure starters, and one of Jesus/Sterling.

      1. Almathkourq8
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Well Salah always scores against London teams and he is going for the golden boots

    3. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Not convinced KdB gets any minutes unless his colleagues can't beat Bournemouth at home.

      1. Almathkourq8
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Thanks considering Dsilva

  22. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years

    Grealish not really celebrating there. Wonder does he secretly want them to go down so as he has a good excuse to leave.

    1. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Think it's more they've given up plenty of leads and they're still in the relegation zone even with a win today

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      He's too good for Villa. Even if they stay up he should put in a transfer request.

    3. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Surely playing for Villa is good enough reason in itself 🙂

    4. ^Freedom Fighter^
      • 8 Years

      No reason to celebrate they propably going down

  23. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • 10 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Tempted by 2 FT’s Rashford & Guendozi > Whichever Chelsea striker starts (need a leak) + Foden...

    1. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Benching headache after that?

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 10 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        Yeah, and a massive one at that

        - Would need to bench Jimmy GW36
        - Do GRU > Greenwood GW37 & Bench one of the city lads (Raz, Kev, Phil)
        - Then probably bench Greenwood or Martial GW38 (Foden > Dilva Triple Captain for NOR!)

    2. Shankly611
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Definitely do it.

    3. Vazza
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Although, Chelsea have a juicy fixture I wouldn’t know what to do with their assets for the last two games. I’m therefore missing out on them completely. I am expecting big scores from Rashford in upcoming fixtures so wouldn’t want to lose him.

      I trust your judgement and have included a question in one of your posts earlier. If you could take a look that would be appreciated 🙂

      1. Vazza
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Foden is a good pick though..

  24. Disturbed

          Minutes will be managed. Whereas Arsenal will field a weaker lineup with FA cup in mind.

            23 days, 17 hours ago

            Makes sense, cheers

      2. ryacoo
        • 4 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        Salah due a rest though surely

    3. Free Hat

      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Not too sure on Digne anymore

      1. Disturbed
        • 6 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Same here, any suggestions for a replacement ?

        1. Free Hat
          • 1 Year
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          Im hesitating between doherty/aurier

          1. Disturbed
            • 6 Years
            23 days, 17 hours ago

            Taa?

            1. Free Hat
              • 1 Year
              23 days, 16 hours ago

              I removed him. Also on FH. No Pool. Difficult, but juicier fixtures.
              But either way, everton doesnt look good atm and nothing to play for. I would go for more attacking team at least.

                23 days, 16 hours ago

                Cheers. Care to share what you got?

                  Sure. Probably will change a few times but,

                  Smeichel
                  Awb doherty aurier
                  Foden dilva kdb puli willian
                  Giroud ings

                  But can change with jesus, azpi or antonio somewhere

                    23 days, 3 hours ago

                    Looks good. Keep hearing that kdb Might be benched this gw so not sure about him, rest looks solid.

    Who do you think is more likely to start for City vs. BOU, Sterling or Jesus?

    1. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Doesn't look like either will start but can see both off the bench

      1. Sun Jihai
        • 8 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Question is who plays upfront if there is no Jesus or Sterling false 9?

        1. Coys96
          • 3 Years
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          Exactly!

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Jesus. He came off early.

      They need someone up top don't they!

      1. mynameisq
        • 6 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        It's Pep, he can put anyone up there probably Gundogan

        1. Coys96
          • 3 Years
          23 days, 17 hours ago

          True, but I cant see him doing that.

          1. mynameisq
            • 6 Years
            23 days, 16 hours ago

            He's done so before I'm sure of it

    3. ryacoo
      • 4 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      I think both will start

      1. ryacoo
        • 4 Years
        23 days, 17 hours ago

        Pep has been managing their minutes well lately - Sterl only just had the last game off and Jesus always comes off early.

        1. Shankly611
          • 4 Years
          23 days, 16 hours ago

          No way! KDB started the last two matches and they have a much more important FA Cup semi-final this weekend! Guardiola will rest him.

          1. ryacoo
            • 4 Years
            23 days, 16 hours ago

            KDB only played 63 mins and only 31 vs Saints - would be really shocked to see him get less than 60 vs BOU personally

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      I think Jesus starts 60 minutes and Sterling on for 30

  26. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • 5 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Is it worth a hit to get pulisic in?

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      If you captain then probably...

    2. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 9 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      depends who you’re selling - but Chelsea players should do well, with plenty to play for - so maybe,..

    3. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Not for a hit.

    4. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      Yes.

  27. Coys96
    • 3 Years
    23 days, 17 hours ago

    Salah, Mahrez, Jimenez, Gayle

    >>>

    Pulisic (C), D.Silva, G.Jesus, Ings

    (-8)

    Thoughts?

    1. Vazza
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      No way Jose

    2. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      Maybe 3 for a -4. Dont think Dilva is worth it.

    What's Jesus's ownership in the Top 10k/100k?

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 17 hours ago

      7.1% of the Top 10k owned him for Brighton.

  29. ^Freedom Fighter^

    Bench one player please and captain one

    Mahrez. Sterling. Antonio. Pulisic. Bruno
    Vardy. Jesus. Ings

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      Oh dear.

      Antonio if you think Mahrez does well?...

      Enjoy the headache.

      1. Rainer
        • 3 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        Captain a headache too.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • 8 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      Bench Vardy (or guess the City rotation)
      Cap Pulisic

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Enjoy the bench points. Bruno captain maybe

  30. Firminoooo
    • 4 Years

    I’m a little surprised so many know ManC lineups. Instead of stating Sterling, KdB, Mahrez or Jesus won’t start, perhaps a little reasoning why you think so.

    My only way to get Pulisic is to gamble on Peps rotation and sell KdB. Don’t know if it is worth it. What do you think?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      Fresh legs and FA Cup.

    2. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      If I were to guess, KDB and Jesus get another 60 because they were rested.

      I have no clue about Sterling and Mahrez...

      1. Firminoooo
        • 4 Years
        23 days, 16 hours ago

        KdB with 60 min against Bournemouth would be amazing. I think I will just have to pray Pulisic don’t haul.

    3. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      What do you want people to say, everyone's guessing based on minutes and cup competitions. The one constant is it doesn't matter if they're benched as they'll still get decent minutes.

      I think KDB doesn't start Vs Bournemouth and comes on for 25-30 you decide whether he's worth keeping or getting puli

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      23 days, 16 hours ago

      It's exactly what you said - a gamble

      One that could work, or that could fail

      Anyone who tells you they know for sure is mental... Personally id find it very difficult to sell KDB - not necessarily because I think he's going to do unbelievably well over the last 3 (although I do think he's got returns left in him yet)...

      But more because the frustration of selling him before a haul would DWARF the frustration of keeping him for 3 Blanks

      Sometimes it's a frustration mitigation game we have to play 🙂

      But it could work, no doubt

      From the restart I've mostly guessed the MCI lineup correctly up to now (Foden this week was a notable exception). I've got no clue for GW36+ though. None.
