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.

    PVA on for a late cameo, then starts the next one imo. It was a good run, Mitchell

        a nice parting gift. How about throwing in an assist too

  5. Little Red Lacazette

    Dunno why, I see a Zaha brace. And no, I don't have him.

    Who would you look to ship out of this team?

    Pickford macey

    Saiss targett ayling justin mitchell

    Son salah sterling hamez podence

    Kane dcl brewster

    Im thinking podence and pickford and the rest are worth holding until proven otherwise?

    Ah balls, just realised Mitchell first on the bench....chances of a Hamez no show?

    1. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years

      Well, he’s been training. Can’t see why he wouldn’t start.

      Dallas first for me. Take a break Hamez!

    City mids right now don’t look worth the money you have to shell out for them.

    1. Qaiss
      • 4 Years

      KDB is always worth it

    2. fr3d

      Paid 6.5m for a goal and I'm happy with that

      1. Nomar

        • 11 Years

        Fair play.

        I sadly own Mahrez.

        I know what happens the moment I sell him, too....

          Fellow Mahrez owner. Tough call whether to hold.

    3. Giggs Boson

      GW10 looks the best time to invest.

      They'll probably sort themselves out by then. And the fixtures look so good it might be worth a double up.

    Mitchell first on the bench, haul imminent.

  13. Royal5

    Zero baps for Foden :/

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      He is ticking on withpoints though

    2. fr3d
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I've noticed this season that baps change after the final game of the day. He could still sneak in

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Aha. Still a small hope then.

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      He played only 45 minutes thaz why

    4. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 7 days ago

      could be worse for a 6.5

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        True. I'll take the points since he didn't start.

  14. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Had a shocker and forgot to confirm Zaha as my captain this week. Hoping that I can fluke it and Salah will out-score him but a setback most definitely.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        You were going to skipper Zaha over Salah?

    • Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Liverpool apparently playing a 4-2-3-1 with Jota, Mane, Firmino and Salah. Very intriguing.

      1. Joey Tribbiani
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Whos the one playing in the middle of the 3?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Has to be Firmino, I'm more interested in whoever's at ST. Mane did so against Everton in the last 10, Salah's played there plenty, Jota has too but with a partner next to him.

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Probably Mane since Jota plays LW

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                Mane plays RW too, more likely to be there. How annoying

          2. Pegboy
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            You'd think Jota, but will be interesting to see.

            • 4 Years

            Would guess Firmino with Salah upfront if true

        • Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years

          With no VVD they will be even more open doing this

            • 11 Years

            Will have 70% possesion so Sheffield will not have The ball AT all

        • Herman Toothrot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Condiment?

        • Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Good. They don’t need 3 CM’s vs Sheffield

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 7 days ago

        0-0, possibly 1-0 or 1-1 coming up

        But we'll still hope for a Zaha haul

        1. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

        Coufal in for Semedo after next week looks very likely.

              agree with joey, I'm tempted to get rid if he blanks today, only problem is there isn't many good options to go to without taking a hit to free funds for bruno, puli, Rashford etc

          • Jon Walter's Hatty
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Someone like Cahill may be better if fit. Nailed for a few cleanies and the odd attack points

          • Jack Burton
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            • 3 Years

            I own him, and he scored in last match, but other than that, they had zero shot. Don't remember stats like that.

          We have nine players out self isolating. As a resut weve resorted to putting Granville on the bench as one of only 3 subs.

          Pray for Barnet this afternoon

          QUIZ! Talking of penalties, name one player to have a 100% PL penalty conversation still intact. They need to have taken over 10 or more penalties in total.

          Am I the only one to think that Pep’s continuous spitting is disgusting and he should be warned or fined for it?

          Was having my lunch and he made me lose appetite.

            If you hit him while he's doing it, he'd be gob-smacked...

            I've yet to find something that puts me off food. Anne Widdecombe could be having a dump in front of me and I'd still be able to enjoy my food.

                It would disgust me, but I don't think it would put me off food. It's not like the taste would change.

                But I'm not willing to put it to the test 😆
