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.

    Is FFS social media?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Either social or anti-social depending who whom replies

      1. Pep bites Kun

        +1 How true 🙂

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      No

      Definition of social media according to Google's English dictionary provided by Oxford:

      "websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking"

      As per that definition, any platform on the internet where atleast two users can have a "social" interaction is a social media imo.

        4 months, 19 days ago

        I would consider social networking to having a more wider definition then social interaction. In any case this site has moderators, the most popular social media platforms that allow racial abuse don't.

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          The best moderation is self moderation

    4. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      4 months, 19 days ago

      Yes. They dont seem to have understood that

      1. circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        They can regulate what people post on here so why should they include themselves in platforms that are boycotted?

        1. Original - Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Exactly my point

        2. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          So can twitter and facebook.

          They all have moderation and posting rules to be followed.

          1. circusmonkey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 19 days ago

            Do they though? All they need is a list of famous, likely targets, every time someone sends to them or replies, it gets checked, then either posted or deleted. Easy job, probably only need one person on that job at a time, if there is a few minutes backlog, so be it. Plus you can apply to be on the list. Why don't they do that?

            1. Ginkapo FPL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              4 months, 19 days ago

              Does FFS moderate well? Are match days a positive interaction for all?

              1. circusmonkey
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                4 months, 19 days ago

                Well half the point of this chat on ffs is bragging/ lolling at other's failure/ moaning. None of it is personal (we don't even know each other). If you don't like that, don't read it. You shouldn't want to regulate every interaction to make it nice. That would be totalitarian (and boring).

          2. Nightcrawler

            4 months, 19 days ago

            Twitter arent boycotting this though.

            What ur saying would make perfect sence if the premier league accounts on twitter could control what gets posted or not. They cant

            1. Nightcrawler
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 19 days ago

              What gets posted by others*

            2. Ginkapo FPL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              4 months, 19 days ago

              My issue is with FFS attitude. Social media is on blackout so we will provide everything here.

              They may as well carry on posting on twitter if that is their approach

  2. Danstoke82
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Which combo from 36 onwards is best?

    A) Siggy + Keane
    B) Harrison/Raph + Digne

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      B

    2. Danstoke82
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Cheers! Thinking Harrison due to Ralph’s injury?

      1. Skonto Rigga

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        I'd wait to hear from Bielsa next week (if you can afford to wait) as he thought that Raphinha was in the final stages of his recovery on Thursday, so he might well be back for GW35 onwards. I'd obviously prefer him if fit but Harrison could be a canny differential for the run-in, he goes under the radar a lot as Bamford, Dallas, Raphinha etc tend to hog the headlines.

    3. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Hmm I quite like the look of A. Although is siggy on pens with dcl back?

  3. Bartowski
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Best combo for next week:

    A) Henderson & Cahill
    B) Guaita & Keane
    C) Guaita & James

    Ta muchly.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      B

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B if Keane starts this week

  4. g40steve

    Bacon sandwiches, yum.

    Red & brown sauce combo

  5. TomSaints
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    No coincidence that Mitchell plays and much improved defensive. Got to start next few games.

    (Not at all biased owner)

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah he is miles better defender compared to PVA

  6. DavvaMC

    Hi

    Looking for a keeper to replace Mendy

    A. Pickford
    B. Guaita
    C. Johnstone

    I have two Leeds so Meslier not ideal.

    Thanks

    1. DangerFC
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Guaita imo

  7. DangerFC

    4 months, 19 days ago

    Hi lads,
    Would you use FH on the dgw or the blank? I'm second in the league. Opponent has no chips and could be struggling for the blank at the moment.

    1. Hybrid.power
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      It depends on how well set up you are for the doubles. How many players do you have? How many more would you bring in with a free hit? How many blank players do you have?

    2. SINGH
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      mate same question. trailing by 30 but got FH left. can only field 8 DGW players with a -4 hit. thinking save FH for Blank GW

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Depends totally on your team and ft:s left.

    4. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I'm free-hitting on the blank game week... I already have 6 double-game week players, 7 with my next transfer. The blank game week has better fixtures, too. Tough matches next week.

  8. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Grab miss, Forest on form

  9. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Suddenly CPL defense looking decent.

    Which defender has the best XGI?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      None of them really

      Cahill if he starts might be the best bet but Palace are awful at set plays. Slight mystery that it's not as if we're short of big boys.

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        If only Mitchel was nailed

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Historically Patrick 😉

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Best choice from their defense is the one with most save points 😉

  10. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘

    Was Zaha injured ?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Don't think so?

      1. Sim Simma 🤷 🔑 🚘
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        "A tidy half by Palace. Wilfried Zaha is last to leave the pitch by some distance. Is he injured? That would be a huge blow to Palace."

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Usual strop. Very unlike him.

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

    Zaha and Ederson on 100% passing accuracy

  15. Twisted Melon
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Will Mitchell start both for the DGW?

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      I think not unless pva is injured

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      He is a trap as someone said earlier.

  16. tokara
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Besides zaha, who has potential for the dgw

    Townsend?

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      JWP imo.

      1. tokara
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        I thought so too, jwp

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Yep, jwp. Eze perhaps? No exactly prolific, but weak opposition

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Benteke

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      Decent chance Zaha and JWP get red cards in the first match - just depends on the ref's view of retaliation 🙂

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 19 days ago

        Would you rate Eze for the dgw?

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 19 days ago

          Nope

          Very little end product as yet. Worldies or nothing.

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 19 days ago

            Indeed. I find I'm scratching around for players beyond Zaha. Already have the main contenders.

  17. drughi

      Prefer bacon flavour
