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.

    Sheffield United should just give up now. Useless bunch.

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 24 days ago

      They already did. They are just doing Championship warmups.

  2. Zladan

    So far so good on the Zaha fail prediction.

    Now for Greenwood to punish.

  3. NateDogsCats

      Have Cahill on my bench on FH but won't one bit complain with Bentekkers and Guaita points

      To all my fellow Zaha owners, we go again vs Soton. :p

      Who are Chelseas nailed CB's?

        Whoever start in the UCL final.

        Rudiger seems the most nailed, but nobody's a sure starter

    • Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Any chance Castagne doesn’t play against United either so I can get in Mitchell

        😉

        Clean sheets are always more satisfying when they come from a 3.8M defender.

          • 4 Years

          Nice punt even if he only plays one, at least he’s played the one you’d have wanted

      • Jimmy Boy
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 24 days ago

        Was all set on doing Vydra > Benteke but that United tgw announcement skewed my thinking and made me do Son > Fernandes and Alonso > Maguire for a -4 instead. God I can't wait for this season to be over.

      • son of city
          2 months, 24 days ago

          Almost took a -8 for Zaha before someone here stopped me, again I say Thank you.

          1. Bob_the_builder
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            -8 is a bit too much but -4 is perfectly reasonable. At -1 now with Zaha. Hopefully he will return against Soton. Even today should have had an assist.

            1. son of city
                2 months, 24 days ago

                Trust me mate he will.

          2. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 24 days ago

            I benched Rudiger. Now get ready for his goal.

            1. Jimmy Boy
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 24 days ago

              Don't worry, the way my gameweek's going it will be Alonso who I finally got fed up with after nine gameweeks and got rid of for a -8, along with Bamford and Son who have both already punished me.

              1. Little Red Lacazette
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 24 days ago

                Unlucky, just remind yourself had you kept they wouldn’t have scored

            2. son of city
                2 months, 24 days ago

                And so will it be. 🙂

              Who will win this week?

              A) Mendy, Shaw, Rashford (c), DCL, Watkins, Maddison

              B) Forster, Maguire, Bruno (c), Keane, Zaha + 2 points

                    No don’t own either, just glad they took up any attacking returns from Zaha!

                how many need-to-get-rid players makes a wildcard worth it at this stage?
                I've got 2 must-goes and 3 should-goes

                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  I'd certainly play it this GW. How much longer can you really wait? End of season is upon us

                  • 2 Years

                  Mate not sure if you aware but there’s only 3 weeks left

                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  At this stage you shouldn't have both WC and those players.

                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  Might as well play it and load upon Pool players

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 24 days ago

                  That's enough. Better to use it earlier to gain some benefit for the run-in. What's the strategy otherwise?

                    2 months, 24 days ago

                    Would you reckon that City's current first team (Mahrez, Gundo, Foden) will get the Newcastle game and then the Everton game (2 of 3) before the final 6 days later?

                    City mids seem a massive differential at this stage. I'm planning to go for it. Will probably ditch United players

                      2 months, 24 days ago

                      He'll want them in rhythm before the CL so I think they'll get 2 of the next 3. Contemplating the Foden Mahrez double up here unless I give Kun a final whirl.

                    • 5 Years

                    Shaw + Rashford + Iheanacho > Dallas + Son + Antonio (-8) incoming

                    1. Milkman Bruno
                        2 months, 24 days ago

                        I’m looking at Vardy, Nacho and Greenwood to Bamford, Antonio and City mid. Just can’t decide which city mid I think will get most minutes

                      Massive mindgames by pep.

                      If that lineup can get a result today, it may well break CHE spirit for the CL.

                      If they lose, he just shrugs it off as the Bteam.

                        Based on Peps selection v PSG over the two legs, Mahrez, Kdb, Foden and Bilva will be protected for the final? Who is the best City mid to get ? Sterling? There’s. it go for Aguero/Jesus
