Zaha and Mitchell start as Palace visit Sheff Utd in Triple Gameweek 35

Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m) retains his place in the Crystal Palace line-up for their Triple Gameweek 35 trip to Sheffield United.

The out-of-position Fantasy Premier League midfielder reportedly struggled in the Eagles’ 2-0 defeat to Manchester City last time out but is fit enough to start today.

As we have become accustomed to, Zaha lines up as a centre-forward alongside Christian Benteke (£5.5m), who has two goals in his last four away matches.

Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) and Andros Townsend (£5.5m) provide the width in midfield while Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.3m) looks set to pair with Luka Milivojevic (£5.6m) in the middle.

For the second match in a row, left-back Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m) keeps Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) on the bench while Gary Cahill (£4.5m) returns to the side to partner Cheikhou Kouyaté (£4.8m) in central defence.

Sheffield United make three changes from the team that lost 4-0 at Spurs.

Kean Bryan (£3.9m), Sander Berge (£4.9m) and Oliver Burke (£4.1m) come in for Jayden Bogle (£4.3m), Ben Osborn (£4.7m) and Rhian Brewster (£4.3m).

Triple Gameweek 35 Line-ups

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; K Bryan, Egan, Basham; Stevens, Fleck, Norwood, Berge, Baldock; Burke, McGoldrick.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Cahill, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze, Schlupp, Milivojevic, A Townsend; Zaha, Benteke.

Triple Gameweek 35 so far…

Leeds assets cut through the Triple Gameweek 35 noise to prove single Gameweekers can still cut it as they defeated Spurs 3-1 on Saturday lunchtime.

Stuart Dallas (£5.2m) opened the scoring before Patrick Bamford (£6.3m) and substitute Rodrigo (£5.7m) found the net in the second half.

Meanwhile, Raphinha (£5.4m) finally returned to action, coming off the bench to supply the assist for Leeds’ third goal.

Son Heung-min (£9.5m) was another single Gameweek option to prove his doubters wrong, scoring his 17th league goal of 2020/21 at Elland Road.

Harry Kane (£11.8m) registered a third blank in his last four starts although he did have a goal ruled out for a tight offside call.

Dele Alli (£7.4m) made a second successive start at Elland Road and would have come away with two assists, instead of one, were it not for Kane having his goal ruled out.

    Which one would you rather do in GW36 until the end of season?

    A. Bruno to Son. Keep Greenwood.
    B. Greenwood to Raphinha. Keep Bruno.

    Kane blanking two GWs in a row. Mind occupied by the next transfer move?

      How many starters do you currently have for the next GW?

        11. Sorry. Not in FPL terms. Probably did not put that properly. What I meant was that has he already started thinking about which club he should move to when the transfer window opens?

    Derby hang on. Wow.

    sold son and dallas and raphinha on the bench so obviously very frustrating BUT apart from son maybe who i sold for greenwood (it was between him and lingard) no way I even considered playing the other 2 so trying to be not too gutted...

    1. Kellz86
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      No one who had the means kept a SGW player though, we all benched Dallas. It’s kinda mute imo

      1. Party time
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Dallas is last in my bench. Bamford 2nd lol

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam

            lets just hope he gets another haul before the end of the season 🙂

      Mitchell! Ok a nice 0-0 please

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Moving Iheanacho out next week. Antonio the best replacement? The other strikers I have are Kane and DCL.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        how much money do you have? would you consider 352?

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Yes. 0.3 ITB. Have this team. 10 starters as of now for 36. 1 FT.

          Martinez Forster
          TAA Rudiger Konsa Mitchell Struijk
          Salah Bruno Son Lingard El-Ghazi
          Kane DCL Nacho

            could you afford wilson?

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              bruno is the easy option out but i would keep for 37.

              well done for having son in your team by the way 🙂

              1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 13 days ago

                Thanks. Kane disappointed again though. Thought he would not blank 2 GWs in a row. 0.1 short of Wilson's 6.5!

                1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                  • 7 Years
                  5 months, 13 days ago

                  rudiger to coleman maybe? i also have 10 potential starters atm my move is awb to coleman i think. no time to save transfers and plan now , need points 🙂 gl

                    Absolutely not. Points every GW. Will see how Coleman does this week. Thanks! Do well.

        Imho Antonio, but as Antonio's greatest fan I may be biased.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          He was great last GW and normally has these purple patches. With just 3 games to play this might be the right time to get him. Decent fixtures too.

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 13 days ago

            Fixtures are good and he's well 'rested' (albeit through injury). I reckon he's a good call.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              Sure. Thanks!

        he s done the damage already to be honest 🙂

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Why? Where was that Spurs team before Mou arrived?

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 13 days ago

            With Poch. Doing much better for sure.

            1. DMP
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              They were doing ok in the bottom half of the table for sure.

            2. mynameisq

              Going back a bit too far in the past there pal, poch was shocking last year and a half

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              Remind me again why was Poch sacked, pls.

              1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 13 days ago

                To get someone like a Mourinho in, who Levy hoped will win them some trophies. But Levy probably did not see how Mourinho had been managing clubs in the recent past.

                1. DMP
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  5 months, 13 days ago

                  Mourinho cant do miracles with no budget on the market competing with City, Chelsea and United. He only got Hojberg and Reguilon, to be fair. Half a Ruben Dias.

                  1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                    • 5 Years
                    5 months, 13 days ago

                    He has been living on his reputation for a few years now.

                    1. DMP
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 6 Years
                      5 months, 13 days ago

                      This Spurs team was already imploding before Mou arrived. With no budget, there are no miracles.

                  2. GreennRed
                    • 10 Years
                    5 months, 13 days ago

                    He could try improving what he had. International players. Levy is tight, no doubt, but he should have done more with that squad.

                    1. Werner Brothers
                      • 6 Years
                      5 months, 13 days ago

                      That's not the Mou way

                    2. DMP
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 6 Years
                      5 months, 13 days ago

                      This Spurs team was already imploding before Mou arrived..

                      1. GreennRed

                        5 months, 13 days ago

                        Which is why you bring in a new coach, to get more out of them than Poch did.

                        1. Werner Brothers
                          • 6 Years
                          5 months, 13 days ago

                          Levy's mistake then.
                          Mou never improve existing squad. He built & exploit them to the max.

                      2. DMP

                        5 months, 13 days ago

                        When he accepted their proposal, i really tought that Levy and Mendes workshop be involved to give him conditions to go after the league. I was wrong.

                        This team cant do much better even with Guardiola.

                        1. DMP

                          5 months, 13 days ago

                          *would

              2. GreennRed
                • 10 Years
                5 months, 13 days ago

                Because Levy values a new stadium over trophies.

              They were imploding under Poch - far from convinced they'd be that much better off now with him,

                • 5 Years
                5 months, 13 days ago

                All I am saying is that Mourinho was never a good choice.

          • 5 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          How did Spurs look in general? Was Kane more involved/better performance? I saw he had a goal ruled out.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        IMO they should have kept Mourinho until end of season. With him they might have made top four.

        1. DMP
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          And pherhapps one trophy, sitting behind the bus against City, with an odd Son goal on the counter.

        Mou is nothing but a snake oil salesman these days. Amazing how he still gets the gigs

        1. DMP
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

        Who wins this week and by how much?

        A) Forster, Keane, Bruno(c), Zaha, Maguire
        B) Mendy, Shaw, Rashford(c), DCL, Maddison, Watkins

        1. Disturbed

        Time to get off Kane train I think.

        Might punt on kun for old times sake. Thoughts?

        1. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Certainly bringing Aguero in for the Final GW

        2. Alisson WondHaaland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          I took out Kane this week. Very scary and I have no doubt he'll haul at least once more but I think with my low TV its better to spread the funds. Not sure about Kun though

        3. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Maybe in last GW, not before that

        4. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Not yet for me, need him for BGW.

            True.

          Kuns not a bad shout, but I wouldnt drop kane for him. Even last game is against Leicester, a pretty big game still. Spurs were bad today, kane wasn't bad. Legit goal ruled out, hit the bar, another day thats a brace and everyone would be rushing him back in

          1. potatoace
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 13 days ago

            I guess you're right. I just can't overlook how much Bale is effecting his game. Its very annoying

      7. MightyGar

          Zaha over Benteke was my main mistake...

          It's at this point I reveal that I sold Kane to get Benteke in for a hit 🙂

              You know just watching him he almost looked confident. Almost that is.

              Still clinging to the belief that if he got his confidence back he'd be a prospect.

              You've got to love that move! Especially with all that excess cash burning a hole in your pocket

                🙂

                Sadly I was left with so much excess cash I went onto the hit - seemed almost careless not to max out on DGW players.

                It's made my season really - now have something positive to remember it by. Have had an unnatural number of 50/50 misses balancing out the lucky run I've had in my previous seasons.

              I did the same but for free.

              Last season I upgraded Kane to Pukki to see him score hattie 😉 For a hit also. I revealed it before the match though. (And we both can forget the other transfer).

            Picked Benteke in goalscorerchallenge this week, at least I got one thing right.

            Would you have chosen Coleman or Dallas for this week?

            Vydra to Benteke seem to have worked.
