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.

    Assessing Crystal Palace players for the DGW, who's on your watch list?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      None, just going to roll with Marty, Bruno, Rudiger and Nacho

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years

        Also gives me 10 players for the blank week

      • 9 Years

      Zaha only.

    3. The Red Devil
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Zaha & maybe guaita

    4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      None. All useless. Plus will need an FT to transfer out.

    5. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Zaha, their best player and on pens

    6. Utopsis
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Mitchell starting is interesting, not interested in anyone else

    7. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Big zero from me.

    So many melier and dallas owners

    Really need Brighton to scuff one in today

    1. tbos83
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Yup. And a Bamford brace wouldn't got amiss.

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years

          Yep, it's been a while

      The game got so much easier this season once pep became predictable. Leaving off his big players for league games meant you didn't actually need city at all and could concentrate on other things. Old predictable Pep. Who would have thought.

      1. Nomar
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Aye. Leave them well alone for now.

        1. The Son-dance Kid
          • 2 Years

          On the assumption city go through in CL, what do we think of Pro's squad for GW 36 and 37? new and bri

          1. The Son-dance Kid
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            *Pep's squad

    4. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      Come on Palace.

    5. tbos83
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Definitely reached the 'decision fatigue' stage of the season. These new dgw/blank gws not helping!

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Just ride the wave with couple of punts, only few decisions left

      • Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Just going to echo everyone’s season fatigue

        I’ve just done son to Rodriguez 😀

        1. Wee Jinky
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I'm thinking of the same move, but Son has good fixtures

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Why didn't you wait for Rodriguez to at least play today. What if he gets injured?

      • Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Who'll be your captain next week?

        1. JONALDINHO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Nacho

        2. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Bruno probably

      • KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        So looks like Rudiger is back for the double at least

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Keeping then I assume?

          Tempted to sell with owning both Azpi and Mendy too, and blank after AND of course missing this week apparently now

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Hope so, just seen on main site it says he’s due back 8th May

            1. Skonto Rigga
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Aye, Tuchel thinks he'll even be back for Madrid in midweek.

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Is he? Will be brilliant if he is.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Check timetable with the cup - rotation central I imagine.

        4. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Got a link? Wanted him on a W/C but gone Dave, but the extra cash allows me to get Salah back more easily.

      • AMBELLINA PRISE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Would Ferran Torres be in the starting line up of Cheltenham if he played there?

        Afternoon crew. How about this for a first draft for DGW35

        Sanchez, Pickford*
        TAA, Rudiger*, Shaw*, Holding*, Coady
        Salah, Jota, Fernandes*, Zaha*, Lingard
        Kane, Nacho*, DCL*

        Playing BB and Double Game Players marked with *
        Costs a -8

      • Pep Roulette

        Mitchell to the rescue

      • DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Hi

        Really not sure on the DGW and if it is worth brining in players as fixtures are not great and also a BGW following.

        Only ones I am possibly considering are Everton players. Below is my team

        Mendy | Forster

        Veltman | Shaw | TAA | Dallas | Holding

        Son | Maddison | Jota | Salah | Lingard

        Iheanacho | Kane | Vydra

        2.6M ITB

        Who would you bring in, struggling to find decent options!

        Thanks

      • Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Would you get Sterling next year if he's 8.5m which he should be?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Depends on his performance

          Think I'll take a punt on mahrez instead if he is 8.5

        2. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          No, he doesn't even start regularly anymore pep has finally had enough

        3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          I will prefer Reidewald. Would not pretend to be in my 11 every week pulling my team down.

          1. Daniel Jebbison
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Mahrez will be 9.5 or 10

        4. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Will be 10m

        5. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          No. Sterling, Marhez both way to prone to rotation. The game is hard enough without the hassle of Guess Who.

      • pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        As expected

        Ederson on more saves than Guaita

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          As expected...

        2. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Transferred Ederson in 🙂

        3. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Did you see our U18s just beat Brighton to stay top of U18 league? 🙂 Rak-Sakyi and Omilabu cracking players, going to need to push some of our young players through to be around the first team squad with all our old out of contract players next season, hopefully get a few games end of season.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Nope didn't watch but saw the result and smiled

            Sadly think we may be a couple of seasons out in blooding the under 18s for serious minutes. Huge amount depends on who the manager is of course.

      • tbos83
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Is 7 dgw players enough? Or take a hit for 8?

          1. AMBELLINA PRISE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 24 days ago

            More than enough

          2. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Blimey I’m sat here thinking 4 is enough

            1. FPL Pillars
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Own team bias

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            10 for me. Big or bust.

          4. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Depends

            Fixtures are poor for me. I actually prefer some of the single gw fixtures

        • KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Which striker for the double?

          A) Benteke
          B) Ayew
          C) Adams

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            Or D) Keep Bamford

          2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            D

          3. son of city
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Probably go with D

              Are these 4 DGW players enough? Anyone notable missing?

              Bruno
              Martinez
              Rudiger
              Iheanacho

                • 7 Years

                Maybe Shaw

              2. son of city
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Watkins

                  • 12 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  I have a hunch about Greenwood and Richarlison

              3. Daniel Jebbison
                • 12 Years
                2 months, 24 days ago

                Zaha looking angry and interested in this game. He maybe is indeed playing for a transfer

                1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  He will retire from Palace

                2. Danno - Emre Canada
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  He’s always like that, every game, I’ve never seen a bigger moaner bar Suarez in the game.

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 24 days ago

                Lingard Dias and Bamford to Adams Zaha and Digne -4?

                1. Daniel Jebbison
                  • 12 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Selling Messi for a hit ?

                2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Why Lingard?

                  1. PP6
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    Two tough games coming up while Zaha has 3 favourable ones.?

                    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      Everton has been conceding. Plus I am looking more long term - till the end of the season. Its Zaha and Palace with nothing left to play vs Lingard and West Ham aiming for Europe.

                    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
                      • 11 Years
                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      I totally get this but West Ham are fighting for something and obviously the better team whilst palace have been atrocious

                      What tough games ? EVE aren't great defensively and the other 4 fixtures (bur, bha, wba, SOU) on the season ticker are blue.

                    Is this 24liveblog here to stay or can we get rid, another poor decision from ffs towers?

                        Seems to be making my page jump around a bit. Losing my place scrolling through comments.

                      Yup it's poor especially when the article has the comments section. you need to refresh the comments and it turns the live blog back on every refresh.

                      Needs fixing or done away with.
