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.

        Many said that to TAA. Nobody is a season keeper.

      Rodriguez. I own both.

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Grealish since he is less expensive. if you can both will be great

  2. King Mo

    Think the new template might be to captain whoever is playing against Palace.

    Regretting benching Trossard already.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      If a player is pacey vs. Southampton, seems to be it.

    2. ivantys
        1 month, 6 days ago

        lol they haven't conceded

      • Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Really? Can't see them conceding many goals at home

    3. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Tariq Lamptey (Brighton) latches on to a pass inside the box and strikes the ball to the middle of the goal, but one of the defending players makes a goal-line clearance.

      Unlucky Lamptey owners. it is coming !!!

      1. Paul Psychic Octopus
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Have Tross and Lamptey (latter as 2nd sub, bizarrely behind Mitchell). Lamptey goal incoming then (no Trossard involvement).

    4. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I am 0.1m of Barnes to Grealish. Is he worth a hit or give Barnes one more chance ?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Check his performance vs Villa

        Based on WHM, I would get rid. You can also go for cheaper options like Troasard/Lookman

      Now I see why Brighton are playing 4 centre-back even though they're 4 at the back: 4 big brutes intimidating and roughing up the opposition - quite effectively too. Hopefully the result will be to overlook Titch Tariq.

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

        Oh that's silly - pen for Tariq "brutalizing" Batty.

      After that Sheffield vs Fulham game, I would back the new proposals to reduce the Premier League to 18 🙂

          I'm not sure there are many doubting he could stick a stationary ball between 18ft posts from 12 yards away with only the gk to beat.

    20. Gobigorgohome

      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

    23. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Selling Werner+Zaha was always very risky! Not bad luck, just very bad management

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Hmmm, tough time

          Selling a penalty taker is going to carry that risk at any point, can’t be to hard on yourself Rafa
