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.

    Imagine dropping Zaha to get Grealish last GW... 😐

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I get picking him over zaha, not sure I would have removed zaha if already owned him with those fixtures

    2. DA Minnion

      Grealish could have had a haul last night.just bad luck.

    3. UNDERWORLD7

      Imagine owning either. Pure trash

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

        Brought Zaha in on wildcard this week, with their fixtures and so much play coming through him it was a no brainer.

      Red was a little harsh imo. Accidental.

    AK47 hunning down Fulhams chance of a goal

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

      Who and why are they called AK47 btw?

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Aboubakar Kamara, shirt number 47

      2. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Kamara chose 47 as his shirt number as his initials are AK

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

          Ahhhhh I see, thanks

    Chilwell and James both OOP and wing backs. Great choice by Lampard

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Havertz striker and Werner wing very great choice by Lampard. Has no idea

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Why is that a bad idea?

      2. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I think Havertz on the left?

    Premier league refs have to be up there with the worst in the world....no idea how to use VAR, had the decision right the first time and felt he had to change it because they asked him to look. No way that’s a red

    1. 1zverGGadeM
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      EPL is ruined by the worst refs, but just have a look for what Sergio Ramos got a penalty against Barca... Sad to say it, but VAR is a cancer

    2. ivantys
        1 month, 7 days ago

        He was going for ball, no way that's red

      • circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        It was a red all day.

    3. Bam Bam Bigelow
      • 4 Years

      Clumsy red card

    4. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years

      Mata to boss the game tonight.

      Mitchel first on the bench. I am set if anyone doesn't play.

      I think it's 3rd time he delivers on my bench or so

      1. ivantys
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Same except I have no chance he comes on for me. He never nets when I start him. I dared not double palace today so I benched him.

      2. ivantys
          1 month, 7 days ago

          PVA on pens right?

            Zaha has done well on pens and Milivojevic on pitch so no

        • mgilbert86

          Guess I'm holding on to Reece James another week.

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Why?

          2. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            I'm tempted myself, as Chilwell is who might replace him... but there's always the chance he drops out again next week.

            The extra £ Chilwell costs might be worth it for the peace of mind.

          3. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Will be back on the bench next week

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              It's not a guarantee that he is but therin lies the problem.

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Won't be playing 5 at the back every week

          4. AnfieldLad
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            Hmm he’s still a massive rotation risk. Playing today because of the 3/5 at the back which I don’t think they’ll play normally

          14 jorghino points on bench a few weeks ago, 17 Bamford points on bench this week. Those 30+ points would be so nice. Bench is killing me this season.

          Fulham are absolutely hopeless.

          Fulham are horrendous

              • 3 Years

              Would have been a PVA assist

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              RM was terrible against Shaktar... How do they beat Barca?

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Barca is worse atm

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Barca are terrible too

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                They played the B team against Shakhtar. Took the game lightly. Zidane was focussing on the bigger picture...El Clasico

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

              Modric goal to make it 3-1 was class composure

            Wtf that replay showed no offside on that 3rd Palace goal?

            1. Africa United
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Yea that was weird why they didn't check car anyway

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

              That freezeframe was not correct. The passer delayed his pass. And he was thus offside

            What was wrong with that Zaha goal? Is it not VARs job to look at it?

            1. Joburger
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              PVA was offside.

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Watched the replay, and im not so sure about that. Would like VAR to use their lines and armpit measuring on that one.

            2. Africa United
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              yea ridiculous that!!

            I got PVA in on a wildcard last week but it looks like it’s Mitchell’s spot to lose now. Total of 1 point over last 2 GWs.
            Sell or keep hold?
