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.

      Glad I moved Havertz out. Too much rotation liability but is not playing bad when he plays.

      1. KAALI_DAAL
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Doesnt guarantee consistency either even if he plays 90 continously.

            His form has been consistent recently though. There’s no guarantees in anything in this game.

      What happened to SHU to turn them from half-decent last year to utter rubbish? Can't just have been Henderson going back to Man U.

          Not solely his fault. It's the ex-manager refusing to play him regularly.

        Henderson has a lot do with it. Papered over a lot of cracks marshalling the def.

        Definitely Henderson and also when Berge got pitted against Lundy is seemed like things fell apart a bit

        Their 1st choice defence has been injured most of the season. Was a big part of what they did.

            It's not like Chelsea is guaranteed CL spot yet.

        I thought Pep would play with a striker and Jesus in.

        But is it really a 3-3-3-1 line up?

        With Aguero too.

        1. Bob_the_builder
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Pep is doing that thing when he overthinks tactics and messes up. Better do it here than in the UCL final 😛 .

            • 5 Years

            I think he's just trying to confuse Tuchel ahead of the Champions League final.

            Some say Tuchel has him sussed on tactics and tweaks.

            1. Bob_the_builder
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Well there's no denying that Tuchel has been great. Should be an interesting battle in the final.

          Rodrigo is going to have his work cut out today. I'm assuming it's some sort of 3-4-3 but god knows who is going to play with him in the centre of midfield.

                Should've had one but for a woeful shot from Ayew.

                Can accept an assist from Zaha as long as its a Mitchell goal.
