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.

    Egan to Chilwell this week looks like a nobrainer.

        Should have been done 3 weeks ago

      Where is PVA playing since he came on, given that Clyne at RB was subbed off?!

        Good PVA coming on for a blank, while Kilman sitting on first bench, if wouldn't have played Dallas CS teed up. Well Roy just killed my GW.

          With Zaha bringing points, a Mitchell cleanie would be absolutely insane for me. Is it time to spam HOLDDDDD yet? 😀

          Remember when Mitrovic scored 2 against Leeds. I remember

          Don't tell me this means Werner is on the wing again. F off Lampard

          1. NULL-X-VOID
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            I think Werner will drop left and Havertz will come up center with Puli covering the right and coming in center

                yeah, looked pretty clueless at PSG on Tuesday didn't he

                  Mate I'm a United fan but don't get why Greenwood, Tuanzebe, VDB, Telles are all on the bench

                  1. Mambino

                    me too - but I'm trying to keep the faith

            1 month, 1 day ago

            If it's 3-5-2 I would have thought Werner and Pulisic up front, centrally, with Havertz the #10 and the most forward of the five in midfield.

            Werner at left wing back to feed Chilwell as he attacks

              Don't think so

                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  He's the only nailed palace CB, who would even buy him at all if he was a mf.

              Mitchel looks as nailed as it can be

                  Man U will pay 50 mil for him and try get him to hit crosses into the box when he is useless at it?
                  Sounds about right

                With Clyne coming in are you sure?

              That Chelsea line up is quality. I won’t talk about United’s

              1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 1 day ago

                I can talk about United. That lineup does not look quality.

                1. Giggs Boson
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  People were saying that before PSG.

                  Fred, McTominay, Bruno, Mata tend to work well together - when Mata comes inside they'll make a strong diamond. Then Rashford and James' pace ahead of them.

                  Should be a good game.

                  1. Tinkermania
                    • 1 Year
                    1 month, 1 day ago

                    When does Mata ever play with those names? He is bench fodder mainly.

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

                      he's been one of their best players so far this season

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

                      Not often, mainly in cups. But he has amazing linkup with Bruno whenever they've played together.

                      1. Tinkermania
                        • 1 Year
                        1 month, 1 day ago

                        He was awesome against Luton

                        1. Tinkermania
                          • 1 Year
                          1 month, 1 day ago

                          This match is the MATA derby, so he could be fired up.

              2. Seanigula
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 1 day ago

                Looks like it should be, but hasn’t been yet

              3. Trophé Mourinho
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 1 day ago

                Mata is still decent

                1. Tinkermania
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 1 day ago

                  Not decent enough for Ole. No teams interested either.

            4. Paul Psychic Octopus
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              Van de Beek must be thinking 'WTF'. Cannot get a start, with Mata, Fred and James ffs ahead of him.

              Must be wondering why he bothered signing and why Man U went and bought him.

              Wait a min has Mitchell shifted to RB to accommodate PVA as LB?

              If that's true then I don't think he's nailed, Clyne would take a priority at RB and PVA would be at LB

              Lads, in which minute of injury time will Palace concede? I have Mitchell so want to prepare myself mentally for the let down.

                I’d usually say ‘bloody hell how did you predict that?’

                But this season just keeps giving doesn’t it, awfully unlucky.

                Stay positive. Grealish will score more than Zaha if you keep faith

              Havertz is listed in the position where Werner was for the CF.

              In all. Honesty it'll be fluid regardless, but Havertz may be playing the CF role today?

                I have the same thought. Werner would drop left.

                    James on the right of the three behind Werner? It might be a one off given that Ziyech will be hoping to cement his place there, but interesting none the less.
