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.

        Unlikely since mitro can't put them towards the target

    Vardy to aguero not looking like the genius move I thought it was. Hopefully vardy won’t play and I’ll have gained a point. Any ideas on aguero injury?

      If Vardy starts, rest assured he gets a brace minimum vs arsenal.

      Can anyone explain why, when your player goes up in value his trade doesn't as well until he goes up 3, but he falls, and his trade value does also? Been doing this 6 years and it still bugs me, there must be some logic I'm missing.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        For every 0.2m of buy value up, you gain 0.1m when selling.
        Its rules, nothing to explain.

        buy at 7.0 price rise 0.1 actual price now 7.1 sale price still 7.0
        buy at 7.0 price rise 0.1 twice actual price now 7.2 sale price now 7.1

        etc ,etc with every 0.1 rise or fall

        Otherwise people would be buying and selling players like the stock market which isn't how they'd want people playing the game

        Looks like I'll be praying for a penalty for the next 40 minutes. Such is life as a Mitrovic owner.

          Now that half the games are PPV can they more them back to 3pm Saturday please.

          Boring AF these days

          1. Ginkapo FPL

            1 month, 1 day ago

            This.

            PPV is a replacement for fans not a money spinner

            1. Wild Rover

              1 month, 1 day ago

              So why are they not all at 3pm? Fans could only go to one game

                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  I know. His comment was worded badly, should have said 'PPV is supposed to be..'

                    Its worded exactly right

                      1 month, 1 day ago

                      No it isn't You said 'PPV is a replacement for fans not a money spinner' when that's clearly not true

                They want you to pay at 3pm and again at 5.30pm and so on.

          How has Lookman been so far? Would have liked to bring him in but he plays for Fulham

            He's hit the post twice. Looked good when I've seen him play, just the team surrounding him.

            Van dijk injury and injustice galvanises liverpool who respond to blatant cheating by winning it all while oliver and Coots rot in jail after being found out for match fixing.

          Lookman at 5M seems to be getting into points-situations, could be a bargain

          I feel robbed as PVA owner.

          I was dissapointed he didn’t start last week, shocked this week. Nailed on cs and decent chance of attacking returns =[

          1. built_this_city
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            He’s not started yet - should have waited until he was back in the team

              You’ve missed a game then and fixtures are great.

              I waited for him to be in squad and he’s normally nailed starter.

              Just feeling bitter and proactive move punished

            Surprised he didn't start this week ... he won't get match fit if he doesn't play
            Don't know why Clyne started ahead of Ward but maybe Roy didn't want to start with two players who haven't played for ages

          I cant believe this was a penalty for Madrid... VAR ruined the football game.

            Clear penalty. No way you can grab an opponent's shirt in the penalty box and get away with it.
