Live FPL updates from Crystal Palace vs Manchester City

Pep Guardiola has once again gone heavy with rotation as Manchester City take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) makes his first start in eight games, with Guardiola making eight changes from the Citizens’ 2-1 win at Paris-Saint Germain on Wednesday.

Ruben Dias (£6.1m), Kyle Walker (£6.1m), Ilkay Gundogan (£5.7m), Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m), Bernardo Silva (£7.4m), Phil Foden (£6.0m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.0m) all move to the bench for City.

John Stones (£5.1m), who also started the Champions League semi-final first leg against PSG, is serving the second match of a three-game ban.

Only Ederson (£6.1m), Joao Cancelo (£5.9m) and Rodrigo (£5.3m) keep their places from the victory in Paris, as Guardiola gives a host of key players a breather ahead of the second leg next Tuesday.

For Crystal Palace, the big FPL news is that Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m) earns a first start since Gameweek 25.

The young left-back replaces Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m), while Roy Hodgson’s other change from the GW33 defeat at Leicester sees Andros Townsend (£5.5m) preferred to Jordan Ayew (£5.6m).

With Double Gameweek 35 confirmed, Eagles attacker Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m) will be blipping on the Fantasy radar. Hodgson’s team travel to both Sheffield United and Southampton in DGW35.

With no updates on social media this weekend, we will bring you live updates on all goals and assists from Selhurst Park, which you can follow below.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Mitchell, Dann, Kouyaté, Ward; Townsend, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Eze; Zaha, Benteke.

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Mendy, Laporte, Ake, Cancelo; Fernandinho, Rodri; Gabriel Jesus, Sterling, Torres; Aguero.

        How can such highly paid professional footballers not miss the first man on set pieces? See it so regularly these days. Every game.

        1. Neves say Neves

          Exactly. It is expected for you to not hit the first man in Sunday league!

        how is Sterling going to make it for the England starting 11 at this rate

        1. SON of CITY
            16 days, 16 hours ago

            He would be second option at the bench.

            The same way Jose keeps getting managerial jobs.

            Sterling is living from football.
            That's not fair

              Looks like Veltman & Burn wing-backs as opposed to midfield?

              1. SON of CITY

                  3-4-1-2
                  I think Dunk and Webster

              Sterling value on open market?

              Why is Sterling no longer sterling? Some unseen injury?

                Brexit devalued Sterling.

                    Maybe he just needs role changing

                  City have changed the way they play since silva and sane left and aguero was no longer first choice

                  No more tap ins for sterling

                  1. Nightcrawler
                    • 1 Year
                    16 days, 16 hours ago

                    His main strength is making excellent runs into the box for usually tap ins. That doesnt happen anymore with a more cemtral build up in this team

                    1. Little Red Lacazette
                      • 4 Years

                      Gotta be this

                      Spot on imo

                      The dynamic of City attack seems to have changed this season - it's largely been about revolving threats through the middle. That for me has also taken away some of the appeal of KdB. Still a great player but now more of one cog in the wheel than the one everything revolves around.

                      Absence of Kun perhaps the critical factor in the change.

                4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                  • 4 Years
                  16 days, 16 hours ago

                  Was always over rated. Would even miss tap ins. We make fun of Timo. Sterling usually needed more chances than Timo to convert. The thing is City used to produce more for him to shin them in. That supply from the flanks has reduced.

                my ML leader who is 65 points ahead transferred in Sterling for Bruno and captained him...

                There is a chance!!!

                1. SON of CITY
                    16 days, 16 hours ago

                    How is he even top of your ML? With that level of intelligence he should be fighting a relegation battle.

                  If you're going to lose - Kun with a great one is the way to do it. Legend that man.

                  How do we mute those annoying live updates? Was wondering what the hell that clicking sound was.

                    OMG you're right, that's what it is! That noise has been driving me mad since yesterday but I had no idea what was causing it. I was troubleshooting my audio for hardware and software issues! Could try just muting that tab in the browser I suppose.

                      Good idea! I didn't know you can mute individual tabs.

                      Actually, it looks like you can't in the latest Chrome version, but there is an extension you can download that allows it.

                      Or, you know, FFS could just stop adding annoying new 'features', that'd work too.

                        What’s worse is you turn off the update in the bell icon & following page or refresh you have to do it again!

                          I didn't even want to press the bell, didn't know what it was for. Thought it might subscribe me to notifications or something!

                            I didn't notice the bell but a bit of a pain if you have to do it every page refresh.

                            In my Chrome right-clicking on a tab gives a mute site option.

                      Would have put them on the verge of the quadruple if it wasn't for Chelsea, who could deny them the one the really want as well.

                    Sadly I need a Brighton goal looking at the threats to my poxy rank.

                    Happily I have the best chance of a Brighton goal - Dunk.

                          Bit of a mystery how Brighton line up with that lot - know you're expecting midfield but it could be anything. Real danger is that Potter shuffles completely half way through.

                      Getting a save point from Ederson feels like one of my biggest achievements this season.

                        Pity Palace took Tekkers off - killed any chance of the second save point.

                        Mods, it's becoming difficult to land on a comment. I understand and agree with the concept of the blackout on social-media platforms, but I never followed you on twitter anyway. I'd like to get the opinion of the guys on this site rather than listen to a minute playback I could get from the beeb or other. Boy's switch it off! It's annoying!

                            🙂 moving on. I still reckon you boys could have trialled it first. If I did this in my job, disregarding clients, I'd expect to get a kick in the nuts; and deservedly so

                              This was the trial really! Wasn't working, so back to the drawing board - think it was just about making sure people could still be in the loop without the ease of play by play updates on social media. Always want to offer as much as possible, but this one clearly proved to be more detrimental than useful so it was scrapped 🙂

                              For the record, this wasn't the mods - they work hard but on other things, they don't deserve any kicking here 😉
