Zaha and Lamptey fit to feature as Mitchell keeps his place at left-back

Crystal Palace face Brighton and Hove Albion at Selhurst Park in the second of four Premier League matches to take place on Sunday.

Kick-off in the M23 derby is at 14:00 BST.

All four of the players who have double-digit ownerships from these two teams start this afternoon.

Three of them were doubts for this fixture, be it through injury or rotation risk.

Tyrick Mitchell (£4.2m) sees off the challenge of Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) at left-back for now, with the fit-again Dutchman only among the substitutes.

Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) and Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) were both flagged with injuries in Fantasy Premier League but the pair are passed fit to feature.

Mathew Ryan (£4.5m), Albion’s most-owned FPL asset, is between the posts again as expected.

Crystal Palace have made four changes in all to the side that were thrashed by Chelsea before the international break.

Gary Cahill (£4.5m) is back after a long-term lay-off and replaces Mamadou Sakho (£4.5m) at centre-half, while Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m) is in for Eberechi Eze (£5.9m) down the Eagles’ left flank.

Jordan Ayew (£5.8m) isn’t in the Palace squad, so Michy Batshuayi (£5.8m) joins Zaha in a two-man attack.

The injured James McCarthy (£4.5m) is replaced by Jairo Riedewald (£4.4m) in the middle of the park, while new signing Nathaniel Clyne (£4.5m) is on the bench.

Brighton make two changes to the team that lost 4-2 against Everton last time out.

Dan Burn (£4.4m) and Adam Lallana (£6.3m) come into the visitors’ starting XI, with Steven Alzate (£4.5m) and Aaron Connolly (£5.5m) dropping to the bench – possibly as a result of their exertions with their respective countries over the international break.


Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Mitchell, Cahill, Kouyaté, J Ward; Schlupp, McArthur, Riedewald, Townsend; Zaha, Batshuayi.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI: Ryan; Webster, Dunk, White; Burn, Bissouma, Lallana, Lamptey; Trossard, Maupay, March.

    Do we think Mitchell starts next week?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      PVA back, risky.

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        But PVA didn't even get a short run out. So, will he straight away start the next game?

      2. davies
        • 6 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Hopefully 90 or 0 so worth starting vs fulham

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes I think Mitchell LB and PVA LM when he does come in

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      I think he does! He's been really good.

  2. Pep Roulette

    No one tempted by Aguero at 10.4?

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      very

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Cheapest he's ever been

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      After owning last season I said never again.

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      I’d take him at 9.5, but not at 10+

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Unless he’s on pens

  3. Bookkeeper

    Selecting a Chelsea attacking player will be a minefield this season. Jorginho may be the player to bring in.

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
      • 8 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Next 15 days they will have 4 games in PL and CL. Massive rotation incoming.
      Grealish is my answer 🙂

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Havertz or Ziyech. Jorginho such a boring pick.

      1. Bookkeeper
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        Jorginho a safe bet, there will be penalties. Their attacking points are going to be spread out between the players and test the patience of FPL managers. I'm probably staying clear for the moment.

    3. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      I think Jorginho will face rotation fairly soon

  4. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 2 hours ago

    Time for (K)ane, Son and Soucek!

    1. liverpool01
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Praying for Son to blank lol

    2. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Let’s go (K)ane

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 2 hours ago

        😎

  5. Little Red Lacazette

    Will still hold onto Maupay, had some chances today.

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Same

    2. Latetotheparty
      6 days, 1 hour ago

      Ditto

  6. Nice to Finally Michu

    List of players who have scored the very next week after blanking against palace:

    -James Rodriguez (2G 1A)
    - Werner (2G 1A)
    -Rashford(1G)
    -Fernandes(1G 1A)
    -Ings (2G)

    Stop with the nonsense, this Palace side sets up very rigidly and is difficult to play against. Brighton created a load of chances. Yes Trossard looked absent and Maupay was wasteful but the team as a whole looked fairly sharp in attack and generated quite a few chances. Could very easily have been the start of a March or Lallana bandwagon today. Don't be so quick to react, Brighton have WBA tot BUR avl in their next 4 .

      Good advice there

    2. Utopsis
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      What about the list of players who have blanked again the very next week after blanking against Palace? Suggest there are probably many more

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 days, 1 hour ago

        Yep. Need to show all the stats.

  7. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Wise and experienced people; does Mitchell play next GW?

    1. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Doubt it

  8. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Lost 14 points due to that Brighton goal. Cheers Joel Ward you absolute garbage bin licker. Skill game is FPL..

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Always felt like Palace were the type of team to look solid for the majority of the game but end up conceding one goal

  9. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 days, 2 hours ago

    Jiménez and Foden to Aguero and Rodriguez for -4 temping me? What are thoughts?- need to do something to try and improve awful start to season

    Yes or No?

    1. ivantys
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      No I'm keeping both

  10. RECKLESS
    • 7 Years
    6 days, 2 hours ago

    Its between Werner and Bruno for me to decide as one of KDB/kun and Salah cannot be ignored and keeping rodriguez, dcl, grealish long term
    Werner is cheaper but Bruno is on penos. Plus after tomorrow cant even decide which team is better this season.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      Pick one and stick I feel the approach for this season so far

  11. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 2 hours ago

    Thinking this for GW7, after rolling the FT for GW6:

    Salah + Jimenez to Sterling (C) + Werner

    1. Esalman
      • 10 Years
      6 days, 2 hours ago

      On current form taking Salah out is madness. Did you see his goal against Everton?

  12. Das Boot
    • 6 Years
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    West Hammering today me thinks

  13. Van der Faart
    • 8 Years
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    Best in the world.

  14. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    Kane and Son is amateur, Kane, Son and Bale is what you want. Back to the old days of triple spurs attack

  15. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    this might be 9-0?

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 1 hour ago

      Nope

  16. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    cant wait to see Bale come on

  17. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    Rubbish Spurs haven't scored for 30 minutes. 😀

  18. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 days, 1 hour ago

    Which players are at most risk of being sold to being in Kane and/or Son.
