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.

        Well I’d assume they’d keep the same team wins today...?

        A new technique, go to the ground as you have injuried, as Robertson did yesterday, and you will avoid booking.

    8. Africa United

      Lamptey's 20 pointer against West Brom next GW should ease the pain

    10. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Maupay!!! Should've passed to Lamptey

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

        yeah, why he didn't pass to Lamptey?

    11. Brosstan

      Guaita world class save from Maupay screamer

        yes was reminiscent of Zidane in the champions league final

      No more pen for Zaha it seems

      Zaha no longer on pens...

            • 6 Years

            Miloli was coming on because McArthur injury but he shrugged it off

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

      Next 4 GWs (Son + Salah already in the team):
      A. Double Salah Mane
      B. Double Son Kane
      C. Diversify with Sterling Bruno in the mix

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        B. Kane & Son link better than Mane & Salah - better fixtures as well

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Double Salah and Mane sounds appealing

      3. Ohhhhh Gary Macca!

      Sorry, bottomed...
      Best R.James replacement? 1FT 8.2 ITB after selling R.James.
      A) Keane and save my KDB buy back money.
      B) more expensive upgrade and figure out the KdB issue later on, if so who?
      Have Robbo, Saiss, Lamp, Mitchell.

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

        Castagne

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

          or Chilwell

          1. Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 6 days ago

            So you think deal with bringing back KDB later on? Both look very dangerous going forward. Swaying towards chilwell but then he's quite injury prone.

      2. AnfieldLad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        You have 8.2ITB ?

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Well 3.2 but R.James is 5 so 8.2 for his replacement

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

            Telles could be a shout

        Surely you didnt choose Lampty at 4.5 as nothing more than a cheap defender who get mins.......anything more is a bonus.......I dont see lots of flack for all other 4.5m defenders??

        I benched Lamp and played Maupay but I'm happy with them cause they are not that bad even in this difficult fixture and also they have 2 amazing him fixtures comin up

      The camera doesn't lie. Just human eyes aren't great at visualising straight lines unless they are actually drawn on the screen. Doesn't help that 90%+ of the time the camera is not exactly in line with the offside line. Not like horse racing where the winning line is fixed so you always get a straight on view.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        What are you trying to say?

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

          That when we see replays it looks onside always because the camera is at an angle

        3. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          People think (when they look with their eyes without any lines drawn on) that someone is onside. But they are deceived by a poor camera angle. The only way you can really tell is by overlaying a horizontal line and vertical lines on the picture.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Fair enough

        4. BeaversWithAttitude
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          If Batshuayi was in a horse race the horse would win?

    26. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Maupay should have scored

    27. manu4life99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Maupay is awful at taking his chances isn't he. Looks the type of player who does well on stats and chances but watching him he is massively frustrating

      1. BeaversWithAttitude
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Harsh.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        He has 4 goals in 4 games this season already. So as wasteful as he is, he's still doing pretty well.

    29. Traction Engine Foot

      Brighton must be the worst team for missing chances

      1. stat sifter 888888
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Definitely, look no further than the massive gap in quality between their midfield/defence and their attack. Maupay is a very good championship level striker and a decent PL striker but other than that they could do with some new blood in those positions.

      2. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Maupay gets a lot of chances every game

        only if he can shoot better..

      3. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Sakho on. Maupay owners start celebrating now
