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.

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

      • 5 Years

      Zaha to Grealish in the wildcard in the break will keep haunting me.

        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

    • Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Barnes over Zaha a few weeks ago was a baaad choice.

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I went both since couldn't decide.

        Barnes has the better stats though

    • Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      21.1% ownership Zaha

      Oh my God! A player doing well all season continues to do well. I'm so done with this season.

    • Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rodriguez and Chilwell or TAA and Grealish???

      1. fusen
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        former

      2. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        1st

      3. EmreCan Hustle
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Both will score similar.
        Rodriguez and Chilwell look better short term.

    • Isco Disco
      • 3 Years

      Vamos Ramossssssssssssa
      And Zahaaaaaaaaa....Today is gonna be a good day

      1. 1zverGGadeM
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        that pen was ridiculous, mate.. Never a penno...

        1. Isco Disco
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Pulled his shirt in the penalty box and stopped Ramos from taking the header.
          In what world is that not a penalty?
          Ref himself saw the video and turned his decision to the penalty...It wasn't VAR decision. Clear penalty. Grow up Barca fan!

    • Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Bruno or Rash?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        B

        1. Daniel - Go Granville
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          So Rash? What about Bruno being penalty merchant?

      2. Mambino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Bruno - not just for pens either. He'll score a lot of goals this season. Rash not a bad option though, just don't think he will score as many ppl points as Bruno. Depends how much you need the £1mil elsewhere

        1. Mambino
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

    • KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rodriguez to outscore Zaha 😎

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        We will see

    • Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Sorry me again, but is Rash worth 1.5m more than Rodriguez?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        No way for me

      2. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Depends on the fixtures.

    • Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Cairney stumbles, no pen

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Good

    • Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Mitchell chance!

    • BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Not sure why Fulham aren't just pinging in cross after cross for Mitrovic? He's not going to score anyhow else

    • Africa United
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Mitchel close
