Zaha self-isolating as Eze and Taylor shrug off yellow flags for Burnley v Palace

Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) has been omitted from Crystal Palace’s matchday sqaud as they travel to face Burnley in Gameweek 9.

Roy Hodgson revealed on Monday afternoon that the midfielder is self-isolating, although it was not yet confirmed that he was doing so because of his own positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test, or because of someone he was in contact with.

Michy Batshuayi (£5.8m) comes in for Zaha, starting up-front alongside Jordan Ayew (£5.7m) in a 4-4-2 formation.

There is slightly more encouraging news for Palace fans as Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) has overcome his muscle injury to start on the left-hand side of midfield.

Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m), who has the best minutes per shot of any Palace player since Gameweek 3, is at left-back once again, this time rooting Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) to the bench, who finally returns from his knock.

Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) has shrugged off his yellow flag to start at Turf Moor, the Burnley defender behind only Nick Pope (£5.4m) for points per million spent among his colleagues this season.

Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m) starts alongside Chris Wood (£6.2m) up-front for Sean Dyche’s men, relegating Ashley Barnes (£6.0m) to the bench.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Gudmundsson; Rodriguez, Wood.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyate, Clyne; Eze, Riedewald, McArthur, Townsend; Ayew, Batshuayi.

    3. Camzy

    4. ash and swanson inc
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      In order I would go B, C, A, D - unless you fancy going jota and that would leave funds to upgrade watkins or another mid to a 'premium'

  14. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    Come on Dyche take off Charlie Taylor, let him rest his "niggle"

  15. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  16. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Jimenez to get his first PL hat-trick tonight?

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      If he does, I’ll hit 95 pts

    2. BenDavies
      • 8 Years

  17. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Do I pull the trigger on Kane and Zaha to KDB(C) and Bamford(-4)?

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Don’t lose Kane at any cost

    Will be interesting to see how Wolves defence looks without Coady
    Che Adams owners could get rewarded

    1. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Adams owner and looking forward to this, took his goal really well in the last match so brings the form into this.

  21. PLerix

    Dier coming in for Zaha. Jam

    1. Baps hunter

        I had posted the teams earlier, but Sky screwed the pooch (pun intended) and had the wrong Wolves team. Post got deleted.

          Yeah I saw your post and commented on it. It realised it was deleted so added it. First time I’ve posted a line up. Think I’ll leave it there.

            🙂
            May have to find another site to get the teams from - that's about the 3rd or 4th mistake on the Sky site in the last month.

        Original post was deleted because it was wrong.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      I thought Traore was going to start, but at the expense of Podence (since he's always subbed off for Adama, who plays with Neto).

      Got that call right - but it's Neto on the bench! Uh-oh!

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        No that’s a fair assumption.

    4. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Kilman nailed on

    5. G B

      Thanks Horse, the other was wrong then. 343 after all.

      Still hoping to get a Jimenez parting gift...

  24. Super Saints
    • 5 Years

    Lamptey -1
    Zaha 0
    Justin 0
    Mitchell 0
    Stephens 0
    Steer 0
    Martinez 1
    Grealish 1
    Vardy 2

    What a squad I have!

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years

      looks like binary that

    As great as Burnley are for FPL. They are absolutely terrible to watch 😆

      Brutal!!!

    2. Bushwhacker

      Dyche and Hodgson teams . . . not exactly gonna be mile a minute thrills is it?

  26. ZAWAd25
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Activate WC here? 1.9itb 1Ft

    McCarthy
    Zouma Coufal Justin
    Son Sterling Fernandes Zaha
    Kane DCL Watkins

    (Taylor Bissouma Mitchell)

    Little worried about not owning Grealish, Chilwell, Liverpool also spurs fixtures don’t look good.

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Seems fine with weekly fixes ; wouldn't worry about not owning Grealish

    2. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Absolutely no need to wc mate

  27. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 8 days ago

    If there was a 4.0 fwd available for you to buy in FPL who played in China (plays for Burnley let's say). Would you buy him to save the 0.5m and play 3-5-2?

    1. KAALI_DAAL
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 8 days ago

      This sounds fishy

      1. Duke Silver ☑
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        As long it's just fish and not bats.

    2. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Ferguson dilemma all over again. Yes for me

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      I'm hoping Villa's Davis falls more: 4.3m, on -72.3 on FPLstats and still 8% owned (9th most owned forward in the game ahead of Mitro, Brewster, Adams etc.)

    4. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Might even go 4-5-1 if there was

    Saiss rested ahead of hectic Xmas schedule?

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      He made the bench, no? (I think his name is different than 'R. Saiss')

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Incorrect.

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Naughty or Saiss.

    3. lespaul
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      There was a mystery senior wolves international player that has tested covid positive. It's not a huge leap to assume it was Saiss

    1. Rainer

      Eze?
