Scout Notes

Mitchell benefits from Palace’s first clean sheet since Gameweek 1

Crystal Palace 2-0 Sheff Utd

  • Goals: Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m), Eberechi Eze (£5.8m)
  • Assist: Christian Benteke (£5.5m), James McArthur (£5.2m)
  • Bonus points: McArthur x3, James Tomkins x2 (£4.5m), Vicente Guaita x1 (£4.8m)

TYRICKSHANK RICKDEMPTION

Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) made a swift return to the Fantasy Premier League spotlight in Gameweek 17 as he played all 90 minutes of Crystal Palace’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United.

The left-back was a key component of budget defensive rotations earlier in the campaign but lost his place to Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) in Gameweek 7.

After going nine Premier League matches without registering a single minute, Mitchell came back for the Gameweek 16 draw with Leicester in what appeared to be Roy Hodgson exercising some festive rotation

However, against Sheffield United, the 21-year-old held onto the left-back berth six days after Crystal Palace’s Gameweek 16 fixture, the fact that van Aanholt was on the bench again heavily indicating Mitchell has established himself in the first team once again.

How often his 15.1% ownership will start him in the coming weeks remains to be seen considering the Eagles’ next two matches take them to Arsenal and Manchester City.

Meanwhile, their clean sheet on Saturday was just Palace’s second of the campaign, the first since Gameweek 1. And, of course, it was recorded against the Premier League’s worst attack Sheffield United, who have scored just eight goals in 17 matches so far (0.5 per game).

Still, finally having another starting defender in this price bracket could come in very handy over the coming weeks, especially with Max Kilman (£4.1m) recently losing his place for Wolves.

THAT WAS EZE

Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) could be on the chopping board for his 22% ownership ahead of Double Gameweek 19. 

Palace have just one fixture in that round, arguably one the hardest possible in a trip to Manchester City, who have the joint-best home defence this season (seven goals conceded).

He goes into the mini chip season on the back of five blanks from a possible six since Gameweek 12, his only goal in that time coming against Leicester.

In Saturday’s win over Sheffield United, the Ivory Coast international did play well, driving the ball forward for Palace’s opening goal, only to end up the assister for the assister. He crossed to Christian Benteke (£5.5m), who teed up Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m) for the finish.

It was Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) who stole the show against Sheffield United though, pressing into unguarded space in Sheffield United’s midfield and shrugging off Ethan Ampadu before rolling a cultured finish beyond Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m) in first-half stoppage time.

While the former QPR man only has one goal in the last three Gameweeks, it is worth highlighting that is the same number as Zaha, who has played more minutes in that time.

After missing out on the starting XI in Gameweeks 16 and 17, any questions over Eze’s place in the team were eased by a first-half injury to Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m), as well as his impressive performance.

After scoring the game’s opening goal, a hamstring issue forced the former Leicester man off, which Hodgson described as “concerning”. 

“[The injury to] Benteke is a dead leg. Schlupp is more concerning. A muscle injury, his hamstring.” – Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Kouyaté, Tomkins, J Ward; Schlupp (Eze 40′), Milivojevic (Riedewald 90+5′), McArthur, A Townsend; Zaha, Benteke (Ayew 48′).

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Stevens, Egan, Ampadu; Osborn (Hackford 80′), Fleck, Norwood, Basham, Bogle; Mousset (Brewster 61′), McGoldrick.

      not McCarthy, apparently his wife and he is self isolating, but it is still a rumor, not a confirmed one

        Self isolate in goal, Liverpool players not allowed near him = clean sheet?

    GW 18/19 Strategy

    I have thought long and hard about GW18 & 19!!

    I have used 2 x FT to get 9 players for GW18:

    Leno
    Dias, Cancelo, Stones
    Bruno, Son, Grealish
    Wilson, DCL

    That gives me 5 players in GW 19 playing double games which I will use 1 x FT and -4 for 2 more double game players. (probably 1 x Man U and Pope for Burnley, maybe???)

    Will then use new WC to transfer long term players back in for GW20

    Thoughts, Criticism, all welcome...

    McCarthy, KWP, Bamford and Salah on Bench???

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We

      Fulham full of covid

      1. Leonard hatred
        • 3 Years

        also means some extra matches for them later on in the season, but sadly they don't have any players i want in my team.

      Too boring to be played.

  5. marcos11

      How long is Steffen due to play whilst Ederson is out? Just gw18 or will Ederson be back in time for dgw19?

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Could be back for BGW18, if he tests negative before then.

    • Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years

      Of course my rival has no Fulham or Burnley while I have Mitrovic (c), Areola, Pope (on bench), Wood and JRod

      NEWS | Manchester City can confirm that Eric Garcia and one member of staff have tested positive for COVID-19.

      I don't get it, why now they can confirm and not the other time? So ambiguous and inconsistent imo 🙁

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

        maybe a test done today

          so what? Why they hide Torres and Doyle and are revealing Garcia, Walker and Jesus? Also they didn't reveal Ederson, but he revealed himself? Shenanigans anti fpl managers imo

        Because Gracia won't start anyways.

        Maybe they want Chelsea to keep second guessing which other 2 players have Covid. You never know if one of them is KDB.

    • The 12th Man

      Sterling, Fernandes,Rashford,Son,Saka

      Steer,Brewster,Mitchell,Lewis

          ? That team looks class

        2. thegaffer82

          1 month, 25 days ago

          Are you seriously asking if he is serious?

          Did I miss something? It looks very strong to me - except for Kun

    • Jon Snow
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Am i correct in thinking if you make transfers then play FH, the players would still be in your team the next week right?

      So if I swapped Reece James for say Stones, I would still have James in GW19 (plus any price falls)?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        No.The FH cancels any transfers made.
        So your team reverts back to what you had before you made any changes.
        In your example. Reece James would be back in your team.

      2. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Your team will revert to what it was at the GW18 deadline.

      3. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        no, you get your previous game week team back

      5. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        No

        If you make any transfer then free hit, then any transfer done prior to free hit is void.

        You know nothing Jon Snow 🙂

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      6. Jon Snow
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Oops I should have been clearer, I meant the old player returns the team, the week after the free hit.

        I was trying to get Reece James out of my team for a City defender. Looks like I'm stuck with him

        1. The Train Driver
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          I thought it was pretty clear, you are correct, you keep James...

        Some kind of mass delusions going on here - similar to the Mandela effect I think

      Will Cresswell rise tonight if he has no game next week?
      Surely no one getting him in yet

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Yes either looking ahead to the DGW or don't realise he blanks in GW18.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

            Covid City update

            Confirmed list: Walker, Jesus, Garcia, Ederson

            Rumoured list: Torres, Doyle

            Already have Stones and Mahrez, and was planning on bringing in KDB for gw18 but with the uncertainty a cancelled City game would be damaging, might bring in Rashford to limit the risk, any thoughts?

          • sirmorbach
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Lads, would you please help me out here?

            McCarthy / Steer
            Robertson / Dias / Cresswell / Saïss / Dallas
            Salah / Bruno / Son / Grealish / Soucek
            DCL / Watkins / Bamford

            DCL to Wilson, Steer to Martinez for a hit? This would give me 8 playing players for GW18, and good options for a bench boost on GW19. Sounds reasonable?

              Yeah not bad and if you think playing 8 is enough go for it

            2. cigan
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Tough choice. For free I'd do it 100%, for a hit not so sure because DCL has a fixture in gw18 (but could easily pay off anyway + I don't see many other good options to downgrade in order to get Martinez)

              1. sirmorbach
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Thanks for your thoughts, sir!

          • cigan
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I've got this lot playing in gw18. Any advice what to do with 2 FT?

            Martinez
            Dias Dier Holding Lowton
            Bruno Son Saka
            (+ Salah Vardy Robbo Soucek Adams Bamford Johnstone)

            I want to get 1-2 attackers in but City and Utd are too expensive and I'm not keen on Burnley attack at all. Really wish I hadn't sold Grealish on gw16 WC now

            A) Bamford & Soucek > Watkins & McGinn
            B) Vardy & Soucek > Watkins & Grealish

            If the Fulham game was cancelled surely the City game should be cancelled too ?

              City have controlled their big outbreak far better than Fulham.

                it’s reported they have too more positive cases

                  Yup. Garcia and a staff member

                  1 player & 1 staff in the last round. Decreased from the original five. Manageable.

                  Fulham had a bigger original outbreak and they still haven't got it down.

                  I'd hazard a guess that they're being coy on the details as they don't know how big it is get and/or it's unfavourably high.

              You need at least 14 players, maybe Fulham don’t have this to play the game

                        i am asking a question, but it wasn’t 14 for sure.

                      Don’t know on the Fulham front but city had 5 so they couldn’t have played there’s but maybe 1 has come back negative already to play this game. I haven’t a clue, its all hush hush at the moment and lot of speculating

                        thought you meant 14 players with Covid, sorry.

                don’t own City, Chelsea, Fulham or Burnley and my bench is Reguilon, Matip & Wellbeck 🙁

              There has been inconsistency in the calling off of games I think. But, to be fair, it's been a trying time for everybody so we should perhaps let it slide

          • Traction Engine Foot
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            KDB and Sterling too much on free hit? The double city defence seems more sensible but also a bit boring..

              Depends - Fun picks are those you don’t own. Just need to weigh up against kane/ son hauling knowing everyone else (FH or otherwise) has them

                They are definitely not hauling vs Villa...

            FH in GW18 will end in tears.

            Waste of chip 🙂

                Yes, that is how it works.

            Laughable that the City game is going ahead after Burnley Fulham was cancelled. Mockery of the game, Pep clearly controls whether City plays or not.

            1. Nightcrawler
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Sounds like u want players off the bench. Not happening

              Maybe a better way to read it is fulham brunley shd have gone ahead too

              1. Hazz

                • 3 Years

                It's Brosstan, ignore him.

              Also no, Fulham vs. Burnley should not have gone ahead if Fulham are as riddled as reported.

                  It was meant to be to Nightcrawler as I'm referring to his comment on Fulham/Burnley going ahead

              No in your case, what’s the plan?

                TAA -> Cancelo would be one of my transfers

                Then in DGW19 Son -> KDB and Kane -> Vardy ( still considering that last one)?

                Does that sound good?

                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  I would say yes to cancelo due to no city def. i would keep one of the spurs as its a great fixture for them. Probably just son>KDB for now and assess nearer the time

            2. cigan
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              No way. I'd do Adams & Bamford > Wilson & Watkins if I could (I'm 0.1 short)

              1. Labile
                • 2 Years

                That’s one I didn’t consider but they both have a double after that though?

              I'm in a similar boat but have a few more players this week - I also have 2FT's.

              I think it's set up perfectly for the Salah hokey-kokey

              I'm doing Salah > Sterling/Son in 18, then Raz/Son > Salah and bringing in another DGWer as well for Dier

              I've got similar and am doing Burke to Smith Rowe, and Salah to KdB/Sterling.

              Salah would come back in for Son for 19

            Over the next day or so there will be loads of Liverpool line-up 'leaks' posted here and on Twitter. Just know that the last 'leak' from a supposed reliable source was completely wrong so take these leaks with a pinch of salt. 😉

              May have to make 1 GK transfer though (potentially 2 if BB-ing).

              • 3 Years

              No chance as I have Cresswell on the bench

              How do you bench a defender vs West Brom!

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Robbo, Dias & Dier innit

              2. cigan
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                And the best thing that I learned over the years: When in doubt - never trust the Arsenal defense

                Game allows you to bench players v any team. So doesn’t whether they’re playing West Brom or say, Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool the method remains the same

            Those who are BB in GW19;
            Are you then WC in GW20, or best to use it later in season?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Later, maybe in advance of GW26.

              Extra (playing) players on the bench aren't a bad thing at this current moment in time with the postponements & COVID outbreaks due to stupid people at Christmas/New Years.

            Best DGW TC?
            1) KdB/Sterling
            2) Bruno
            3) Salah

            And lastly best under 7.0m attacker for DGW. No Bamford or Watkins?

              A + wait and see if Liverpool raise their form tomorrow (Salah if they look better, Bruno if they struggle) + Adams
