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.

      • 4 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      You can't get 6 points that easy.

      1. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

    2. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Sure, why not. I'll quietly take the 5 points, lol.

  6. Super Saints

    1. rdpx
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      I've got him. Heard nothing about whether he's playing yet though.

  7. Meinhoff
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Lamptey is pretty bad defensively, always late for tackles.

  8. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Mitchell 1-pointer confirmed now...

  9. BenDavies
    • 8 Years

  10. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    1. Meinhoff
      • 8 Years

    2. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

  11. BeaversWithAttitude
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

  13. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year

  14. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

  15. Paul Psychic Octopus
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Lamptey and Mitchell red cards would NOT be sweet

  16. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Lol @ Cahill holding Mitchell's hand like a little kid.

    Mitchell needs to be subbed by Roy

  17. Londongeezaa
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Lamptey fears no one. All 5ft of him 🙂

  18. Coys96
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Mitchell definitely should be booked for that

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      He was.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Nope

  19. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Will sell mitchell just for sheer dumbness

  20. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    How’s Maupay playing ?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Getting chances, can't finish

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      did he start ?

      1. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Good one

    3. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      getting chances but poor finisher
      reminds me of Che Adams

  21. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    No single save for Ryan, and the unlucky pen killed his points - so frustrating

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Pretty much the worst keeper to have picked the season to start with

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Perks of having Ryan. Never going to pick him again

    3. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      He should have saved that pen at least

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      He was fine last season ... anyway playing this season will need to forget previous records!

  22. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Bissouma so attacking

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      better option than Brewster ?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        yes imo

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      More dangerous than Zaha

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        agreed

  23. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    How good is Lamptey!

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Completely unmarked this game because of Zaha. Should have been even more involved imo

  24. rdpx
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Werner/Keane in for Mitrovic/VVD -4 is my current thinking

  25. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Bissouma isn’t afraid of shooting is he

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      getting in good shooting positions too

  26. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Grrr on top of my non wildcard team being 42 points up, I backed Brighton over palace on wc.

    Stats say Brighton playing well but as usual, that’s not turning into points!

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      same here

      WC

      played Trossard Maupay
      benched Mitchell

      Mirchell outscoring

      season over

      1. TomSaints
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Palace are the worst team to let score first. Happened in saints game, 11 men behind ball and zero ambition.

        Gets points but man is it bad to watch

  27. tiger

    Does it feel like this match has been going on for days to anyone else?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Considering I don't have any player in this game, yes.

      1. tiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        I have Mitchell...on my bench.

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

    3. fr3d
      • 3 Years

    So, either play waste of space Ramsdale v Pool next weekend and save FT for following week when I can ditch Ramsdale and Doherty for free, or get rid now with FT.

    Hmmmmmm.......

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago
