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.

    Mitro ffs!! Missed a pen!

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years

      dial up?

    2. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I think he'll score it.

    3. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Dont worry. There's still plenty of time left to score.

    Mitrovic -11 BPS

    Some achievement that

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I think it's a record for a striker

      1. tiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        He is special

    2. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      They should bring in minus BAPS. Bottom 3 bps in a match get -1, -2 -3 respectively.

  12. You've got red on you.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Will wait until after the games but who's the better to have?

    a) Trossard

    b) Antonio

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B for me

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      A for now, get Antonio for Fulham in a few weeks

    3. Latetotheparty
        1 month, 14 days ago

        A

    4. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Lamptey already looking lively for me

    5. Ze_Austin

      • 2 Years

      Just watched Sheffield get ripped apart for extended periods of a match by... *checks again*... Fulham?!

      Salah (C).

      1. Daniel - Go Granville

      2. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Salah (C) best bet next GW.

          • 11 Years

          I won't be surprised if he blanks to be honest. it is that kind of a season

          SHU almost always plays the same way, tbf. Just not good enough

      4. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Actually I'm very excited for Robbo in that game, huge potential for an attacking return and a CS

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I agree, but I'm not confident with VVD and Alisson out

          1. NULL-X-VOID
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            well give the state of SHU attack, I still think it's a huge CS chance.

            1. NULL-X-VOID
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              given*

              Lmao

    6. NULL-X-VOID
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      had a silly casual question. If one of my Def doesn't play, and I'm playing 343, and my first bench is a mid, so in sub, my second sub which is a def would be chosen, right?

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Y

        1. NULL-X-VOID
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          cheers Daniel.

      2. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yes, the 1st defender bench player..

      3. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yup. "Minimum 3 defenders" rule will be enforced

        Minimum 2 mids. Minimum 1 forward

      4. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        cheers lads.

      5. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yup

    7. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I don't know why but Ronka played Brewster and benched KDB

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Well KDB was announced out so that's why he's on the bench.

          Brewster over Lamptey/Mitchell was the call. Obviously betting on a differential scoring, but didn't pay off.

          Not that hard to figure out.

          1. Daniel - Go Granville
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Mitchel and Lamptey def a better call than Brewster imo

      1. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Good decision. 1 is better than 0

      2. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Kdb injured that's why

      3. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Better than getting Pulisic I guess

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Magnus got Pulisic though . see below

      4. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        KDB was definitely out
        Brewster would have scored if he started today IMO

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          probably he already took a hit and din't want -8?

    8. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Zaha no longer OOP... Useless pick

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        yes he is OOP they play 3 5 2 with 2 upfront no?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago
