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.

    Eze you little beauty

  2. DandyDon

    Benteke really is the worst. That effort was going to be a comfortable save for Ramsdale until the defender got in the way!

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Then that defender is worse, not Benteke 😉

    2. Werner Brothers

      Hope they do the same with zaha's shots

    Has PVA lost his place?
    Got him in for his nice double...Defines this season for me.

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Yes

      He literally got benched last game, then Roy spent the next week talking up about how good Mitchell is.

      Pretty bad decision on your end

      1. Indpush
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Too right. He probably wasn't doing any research nor paying attention to football.

      2. acidicleo
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Got him in gw34 wc before all the things you stated happened...

      PvA might get Southampton yet

      RH noted Mitchell's injury record and may not want to push him. But Mitchell is number 1 now presumably. Always seemed likely he'd get a run once Palace were safe - he's the future.

        PVA is out of contract at the end of the season, makes sense to give Mitchell a run of games.

    Best option for 36-38

    Pretty bad start to the gw.

    Pool game will be vitally important.

    Not confident

  6. Dirty_Harry
    • 12 Years

    How has Zaha looked? Just woke up covered in mosquito bites. Worst thing ever.

    1. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Quiet enough but Sheffield will gift him a chance in the 2nd half.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Out wider - less central than he was early season for certain.

      1. Dirty_Harry
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Bummer, can only hope he can grab a hold of a chance. Needing some differential love right now

    3. HonestBlatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Poor

    4. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Not liking his extrawide position. Looking like no threat.

      1. Brimble82
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        I’m not liking his walking pace.
        Looks like a 14yo heading down the park to drink cider and do some nitrus.

  7. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Berge not streetwise enough.

    1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah, Eze taking over from Zaha being rotationally fouled without any cards given.

  8. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    How is that not yellow card?

    1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Because its us.

  9. Sun Jihai

    Guaranteed CS for any team playing Sheff Utd. Digne looks good next week.

    1. Isco Disco
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Everton home form is as bad as Sheffield Utd form

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      They scored against Villa when Villa had a defence and also Brighton - feels like one of those Digne binary weeks to me.

  10. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Which move would you do?

    A. Bruno to Son
    B. Greenwood to Raphinha
    C. Maguire to Dallas

    Choosing one option means keeping the other 2 until the end of the season!

    1. MightyGar
      4 months, 13 days ago

      C, playing out of position

  11. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Palace don't to cleansheets, tense next 35 mins for owners

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      They're playing Sheffield utd.

      Cleanie locked in

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      CS is nailed on here.

  12. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Each would be a -4. And this only gets me to 10 for gw36.

    1) Greenwood, Shaw > Son, Dawson
    2) Greenwood, Shaw > Siggy, Dallas
    3) Iheanacho, Shaw > DCL, Dallas (maybe Antonio instead?)

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Think alot of people with have 10 for a hit.

      1. jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        That'd be welcome news.

    Oh tekkers

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Saving it for Southampton with luck - could easily have been a hattie here but well....

  14. Isco Disco
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Oh no Tekkers
    Why you do this to me? Are you not scoring more just coz I own you this GW?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      No, because he forgot how to score 5 years ago

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Curiously he has a very decent strike rate this season - it's chances he's not had. Goal per minute ratio rate up there and perfectly acceptable rate of putting away big chances.

    2. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      i'd consider any goal by him if i was an owner extremely lucky as he is the worst these days.

  15. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Zaha seems barely involved or interested

    1. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      don't think Eze being in the team is helping him!? Based on previous seasons. it is strange.
      Eze's best performance that i've seen to date anyway.

    2. Sack The Glazers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        I knew this will happen and still I got him in. I have to drink some Vodka today...

    3. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 13 days ago

      It’s like he’s a defensive winger…

  16. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Zaha was nowhere to be seen.

  17. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Zaha has absolutely no interest in this game. Wow

  18. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 13 days ago

    Zaha is awful and lazy...not even joining the attacks

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Already regret getting him. Well, it's too late now.

  19. Dr. Rog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Just had a quick look at the championship. Players jotted down for next season:

    NOR: Buendia 14G 15A, Pukki 26G 4A
    WAT: Conceded the least (0.67/pg), so cheap defenders.

    If they get through playoffs:
    BRENT: Toney 29G 9A
    BOU: Solanke 15G 8A, Danjuma 15G 7A

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      Brentford sadly won't make it imo but Toney will somewhere

      A PL club should snap up there scouting network - great supply of talent.

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        usually its not 3rd place that goes up but I dont see why not - they must be the favourites

        top of the form table at the moment

          • 5 Years

          You make a good point

    3. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 13 days ago

      fancy Norwich to stay up next season. Hopefully Pukki keeps scoring this time as he went really off the boil for a bit last time around. Think its safe to say Buendia has improved to since he was last in the Premier League as well.
      Looking forward to this season being over mainly!

  20. Bookkeeper

    3. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      They're getting a few chances but they just have no quality at all.

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      If they are able to shoot on target.

  24. Chandler Bing

    Thought this was the GW Zaha would push for a big club move. Guess not. Deserves to stay at Palace if this is his attitude.

    Wish I'd gone Eze over Zaha. I almost did, too. Looks far more influential and the move would have freed up money that I most definitely need...!
