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.

    I can't remember... If I free hit someone out, but change my mind, do they come back in at the same price, or at their current price? Haven't dropped the hammer, yet.

      Your team goes back to what it was the GW before with their current prices

      Thank you!

    Is Zaha actually playing?

    1. Brimble82
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      FIFA

  3. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Best mid for 7.2?

    1. Danstoke82
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Raphinha? Saves a bit more cash and has good fixtures

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Thinking the same

  4. Danstoke82
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    What to do here as currently not sure I have a playing keeper for GW36 as own Mendy + Forster

    Mendy >

    A) Meslier
    B) Fabianski
    C) Play Forster and hope he starts

    Thanks in advance!

    1. COYR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Same boat. Been considering A but B is also a great shout. Guess it depends of you own either Dallas or Coufal?

    2. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I'm going for C as I have other changes to make and don't think it's worth a hit

      1. Danstoke82
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Thanks both. I don’t own either Dallas or Coufal but really tempted to bring the former back and pray Forster plays v Fulham

    3. Street Friend
      • 10 Years

      Left some money for ederson personally

  5. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years

    Zaha looking like scoring?

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      not really in the game so far

    2. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Not yet. But he will

  6. dark91
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Is it too late to celebrate Kane -> Benteke?
    I will wait maybe for his 2nd goal and then celebrate 😀

    1. Werner Brothers
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Celebrate it while it last.
      That 2nd goal may never come

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      One assist?

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        I am happy with any attacking returns

  7. Wild Guus Chase
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Mmm...Lee Bonfield’s Benteke shout not so shabby now eh?

    1. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Had him in my FH draft but opted to put Castagne in and play a back 4, oh dear 🙁

  8. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    So the best value FPL keeper, defender and forward all from Leeds.

    Albeit gameweek and season ongoing, but not gonna change much. And Harrison in 3rd also in midfield.

    And it's not just value. All bar Harrison are right up there in outright points too.

    Prices, next season? Bamford 7.5? Dallas 5.5 or even 6? Raph 6? 6.5?

    1. Werner Brothers
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Bam 7.5
      Dallas 6.0 mid
      Raph 6.5 or 7

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 23 days ago

        If Raph moves to a bigger club, he could be a real bargain even at 7m.

        1. Werner Brothers
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          If he's a regular starter yes.
          If not, probably a punt like foden, mahrez or greenwood

    2. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I think Bamford becomes 8-8.5m

      Dallas probably 7m

      Raph 7.5

    3. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Part of the reason for my average season is not getting on the Leeds assets early or consistent enough

    4. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Probably too expensive. Similarly West Ham players.

      I am keeping an eye on Arsenal. No European football means you will get 33+ PL games out of their assets (barring injury) and they won't be tired.

      I am hoping next season will be the time for the undercarders i.e. Rashford (to the main man Fernandes), Mahrez (to the main man KDB), Jota (to the main man Salah) etc.

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Don't forget the mighty pukki & lord cantwell

  9. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    is Zaha on pens?

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yes

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Not with Mili on the pitch

    3. Amsterhammer
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Nope. Thats Mili.

  10. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Obviously very early in the game week, and a lot of games to go, but Castagne zero pointer + Kane blank not how I wanted the week to start

  11. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Ward yc

  12. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    I was seriously considering Teke instead of Watkins or even DCL. Hope I didn't make a mistake

  13. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    lol that challenge was no different to the one on Eze and Ward gets a card. lol

  14. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    On another note BB started on a good manner. Sold Kane for a hit and kept Son. Come ooooon juhuuuu

  15. UNDERWORLD7
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Yep nice one award, now go get me a red you utter twonk

    1. UNDERWORLD7
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Ward*

  16. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    This the type of game where Palace win 5-1 and no Zaha attacking returns/

  17. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    once this TGW finishes I am thinking of doing Sanchez > Meslier for the final 3GW's, that is if there are no other pressing issues.

    Thoughts, Yes or No ?

    1. UNDERWORLD7
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Other pressing issues will arise

  18. Dthinger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Fantastic. Benched Bamford and Dallas, sold Son and kept Bale. Just got caught up in the triple and double fever!

  19. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Woohoo get in Teke!

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Again???

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Well we do love to see it so good to reminisce:)

  20. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Antonio Conte would be the man for Spurs. Perfect squad for a 3 at-the-back manager. But Spurs have almost no chance of getting Conte. Settling for Sarri would not be the answer.

    Lloris
    Dier Alderweireld Davies
    Doherty Ndombele Hojbjerg Reguilon
    Bale Kane Son

    Hart
    Sanchez Tanganga Rodon
    Aurier Lo-Celso Sissoko Sessegnon
    Bergwijn Vinicius Moura

    1. Werner Brothers
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Nuno?

      1. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Not on your Nellie

        1. Werner Brothers
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          LOL

      2. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Too defensive, IMO. Has really struggled to get additional creativity out of Wolves. Jimenez injury a big hit, but even before his injury they didn't really create loads of chances.

        1. Werner Brothers
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Not too many manager who's good with 3 atb formation right now. Probably in Italy. Plus you need to have the right personnel to play 3 atb.
          That A & B team look good on paper btw

  21. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Lazy Wilfried is not going to score today...

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      No penos limits his potential plus the effect theyre not playing 2 up top anymore i think

  22. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Zaha channeling his inner Tony Martial

  23. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Tekkers

    1. Bookkeeper
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      misses guilt edge chance from 1 yard

  24. Danstoke82
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    That is a fantastic save by Ramsdale

  25. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    DCL(C)

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Yeah, thinking of doing Vardy -> DCL myself if J. Rod is back for the Sheffield game.

  26. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    A bit early, but how about this for gw36?
    Greenwood, Shaw > Son, Dawson (-4)

    For reference, I already have Coufal.
    Would you take a -8 to field 11? With the hit above, I'm at 10.

  27. Isco Disco
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Omg! Just woke up and tuned in to see that my punt Benteke scored...Woohoo!
    Kinda bummed that he missed a sitter but come on Tekkers...We need more!

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I’m surprised he isn’t more popular compared to Zaha, especially considering his price!

      1. Isco Disco
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        True! Guess the penalties and reputation of scoring against bottom half teams made Zaha a popular choice.

      2. Werner Brothers
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        No place for another fwd in my team, & need to ditch son

  28. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Sheffield Utd won't be back in the PL for a long time by the looks of things.

  29. TheBiffas
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Hoping my punt eze can build on his assist

    • Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Zaha looking sluggish...

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Mind already on the bench and probably thinking of which move to try force this summer.

        1. Echoes
          • 1 Year

          *beach

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Feels like injured to me, not running at full pace

            1. Werner Brothers
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Not enough painkiller maybe

        2. Werner Brothers
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          He need to do what he can do first. No way clubs want to buy him witth that performance.
