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 almost did. And now can't afford to do the transfers I want to. Am so bloody annoyed!!!

    Stubbornness to go for Eze over JWP has worked well.

  3. DandyDon

    quality blocking from Utd again!
    This Eze lad is coming good. What a goal!

  4. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode

    Almost like his last goal against them at ours.

      It’s the only team he can score against, championship teams 😉

      The curse of having too much money.

    2. DandyDon

    1-0 Chelsea with a Rudiger goal would be... sublime

    Gundog to Eze worked out 🙂

  8. AC/DC AFC

    Cahill robbing Wards bonus points. Just retire Cahill ffs

    A great result for Free Hitters.

    Cahill, Eze & Tekkers on the majority you’d imagine...

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Guaita on WC at least

  11. Eightball
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Damn that Eze goal nicked a BP from benteke.

        Well done to everyone who went for Benteke and Eze instead of Zaha.

        1-1 at half time but Chelsea to snatch the points near the end.

      • TomSaints
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Mitchell bonus point stolen at the death. I’d have bitten your hand off for 8 points from him so hopefully he starts v saints

        1. moment
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

      • TheBiffas
          2 months, 17 days ago

          LETS GO EZE probably my first successful punt this season

        • Kaneyonero
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Of course I would get Zaha to only blank

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            I didn't get the bandwagon...

            Zaha is a troll, I thought you knew.

        • Little Red Lacazette

            Easiest Clean Sheet I can rememeber that!
            Sheffield Utd dreadful and a suprisingly good performance from Palace.

          • Peskey
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Surely an own goal

              biggest question for GW36, to keep Zaha or not? 😉

                • 3 Years

                Starting Mitchel over him is an option 😉

              I made some bad calls this week. Wish I'd been braver.

              FH36 will be all out punt

                Still a way to go yet, more than enough to turn it around. at least you have a free hit still

            • Isco Disco

              2 months, 17 days ago

              Tekkers!!! Could've got more but happy with my differential punt scoring 8 pts and a game against SOU in hand. Decent start to the GW.
