Mitchell retains left-back berth as van Aanholt named among Palace subs again

Tyrick Mitchell (£4.2m) has held off the return of Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) once again as he starts at left-back for Crystal Palace in Gameweek 6.

The youngster has recently made the spot his own in the absence of van Aanholt, but the Dutchman is now back on the scene following a long-term injury.

Mitchell’s 26.7% ownership had feared that Gameweek 6 would spell the end of his viability as a Fantasy Premier League asset but Roy Hodgson has afforded him at least one more outing.

In fact, his one change to defence comes on the other side of the back-four as Nathaniel Clyne (£4.5m) comes in for Joel Ward (£4.5m).

And the returning key man comes in midfield rather than at left-back as the penalty-taking Luka Milivojevic (£5.7m) makes his first start of the campaign.

It will be interesting to see whether or not he will take spot-kicks back off Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) at the first time of asking. He starts up-front with Michy Batshuayi (£5.8m).

Alexsandar Mitrovic (£5.8m) is still the main Fantasy focus at Fulham, owned by 10.3% of managers.

For the second match in a row, the Serbian international is flanked by new signing Ademola Lookman (£5.0m), who scored on his full debut and will be under the microscope for managers looking for value in midfield.

Fulham XI: Areola; A Robinson, Ream, Adarabioyo, Aina; Lemina, Zambo Anguissa; Lookman, Loftus-Cheek, Cairney; Mitrović.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Mitchell, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne; Schlupp, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Townsend; Zaha, Batshuayi.

        It was the right decision. Just unlucky.

        Villa could have scored a few in that game, even having a shot cleared off the line. Fulham looked fairly toothless all the way through and only scored with a long shot outside the area.

    Mitchell was the single player I didn’t want to perform well this GW (benched him over Wood) so despite a terrible score so far I’ll be happy with the outcome.

    If I don't refresh the page Mitchell keeps those points.

    Is there a story behind this that I missed ?

      He won fpl last season but was dobbed in for racist comments so they awarded it to the guy in 2nd

      This is the guy who originally won FPL last year and was then stripped for making racist comments about Sterling - obviously having another dig today.

      He won FPL last season but was stripped of the title because of a racist comment about Sterling in a private group chat.

      I was critical at the time as I thought he could have just said something in a private conversation without really thinking or meaning it but with that comment I can see that it was the right decision. You’d at least expect him to regret what he said but instead he just keeps going on.

        I haven’t seen the comment last year but I can imagine and already think they made the correct decision. As you say though, his tweet today clearly confirms that. Disgraceful.

        why would he tweet that...

        This tweet is essentially saying "the target of my racist comment is the reason behind my lack of success". What an idiot.

          Absolute mug. Even with Sterling's performances - he would have won had he just not been racist.

          How can he be so oblivious to the fact that his attitude is the problem. Take that out of the question and he'd have won...

      How did Grealish look against Leeds yesterday?

        One cleared off the line and another he should have done better with but he beat about 5 to get himself there. Hold the line! Great player.
