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
      4 months, 20 days ago

      They already did. They are just doing Championship warmups.

  2. Zladan
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    So far so good on the Zaha fail prediction.

    Now for Greenwood to punish.

  3. NateDog

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

  4. Bob_the_builder
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

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

  5. Openboxman

    Who are Chelseas nailed CB's?

    1. Bob_the_builder
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Whoever start in the UCL final.

    2. moment

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

  6. Milkman Bruno
    4 months, 20 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.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

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

  8. Jimmy Boy
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 20 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.

  9. son of city
    4 months, 20 days ago

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

    1. Bob_the_builder
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 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
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Trust me mate he will.

  10. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    I benched Rudiger. Now get ready for his goal.

    1. Jimmy Boy
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 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
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Ouch. 🙁

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

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

    2. son of city
      4 months, 20 days ago

      And so will it be. 🙂

  11. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who will win this week?

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

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

  12. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Eze and Teke you legends!

    1. Isco Disco
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      You got both?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Neither haha

    2. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Double up on Palace attack!? Blimey mate, fair play.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        I wish haha

    3. son of city
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Am now jealous. 🙂

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        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

    1. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

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

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

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

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

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

    4. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Might as well play it and load upon Pool players

    5. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

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

  14. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Wish I'd listen to myself sometimes.

      All shteves fault

      1. Eightball
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 20 days ago

        yup he stitched you up there!! trust your gut.

    2. son of city

      Shteve is the imposter

  15. Knock Down Your Aerial

    Dias better return, Dallas first sub.

  16. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    What happen to mount?

    1. GinjaWhinja
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Been working overtime

      1. Mahjongking
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Nt even in squad?

  17. mixology
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 20 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

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 20 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.

  18. Nikolai Volkoff
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

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

    1. Milkman Bruno
      4 months, 20 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

  19. Hypnos
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Ezeeeee

    1. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      He just saved my season! ML title challenge is back on.

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 20 days ago

        Oh well done - very left field that call.

    2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      🙂

  20. potatoace
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    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.

  21. Milkman Bruno
    4 months, 20 days ago

    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

  22. seewhyaxe
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Agueroooooo

  23. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Come on Rudiger save my season please

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      He needs to score

  24. squ1rrel
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 20 days ago

    Just woke up recently, of course I bench Bamford and took out Raphinha for a hit

    1. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Maybe getting up earlier would help

  25. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Is that a team goal then?

  26. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Aguero has had one nicked off his boot by Sterling and then tried to go out with aplomb!

    Cheeky chip Peneka!

  27. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    Debate between Mendy and Henderson went well 🙁 🙁 at the end

  28. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 19 days ago

    So Aguero for Newcastle yes or no?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 19 days ago

      No, rather have Wilson 😀
