FPL’s joint-cheapest player hauls as Hodgson discusses benching of Guaita

CRYSTAL PALACE 3-2 ASTON VILLA

by Colm Hayes

  • Goals: Christian Benteke (£5.5m), Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m), Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m) | John McGinn (£5.5m), Anwar El Ghazi (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Mitchell, Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) x2 | Ollie Watkins (£6.5m)
  • Bonus: Mitchell x3, Eze x2, Benteke x1

MITCHELL-IN STAR DISPLAY

Despite this being a low-key game for many reasons, FPL always has the ability to create joy (and pain in equal measure) despite the occasion.

Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m) owners will have been particularly exuberant on Sunday afternoon.

It was already looking like a decent day at half-time for the budget defender, who will have made many starting XIs due to the Blank Gameweek 36 schedule.

The left-back, on his fourth consecutive league start, gained a first-half assist after Christian Benteke (£5.5m) headed his cross past Emi Martinez (£5.4m).

“It’s been an amazing season. It’s been a dream come true and I’m just buzzing. I didn’t think I would feature this much and I’m just thankful to the manager. I’ve learnt a lot, how hard it is in the Premier League week in, week out but I feel I’ve got a lot more confident.” – Tyrick Mitchell

But the best was yet to come, as Mitchell popped up in the box on 84 minutes to shoulder home Eberechi Eze‘s (£5.8m) shot to give Palace all three points.

“I was just gambling. I tried to go back post for the first cross and then when it went back out I thought I’d stay around. I just tried to be in the right place. I knew it hit my shoulder, for a second I was a bit scared [it would be disallowed].” – Tyrick Mitchell

That winning strike also earned Mitchell three bonus points, much to the further delight of his owners – who only had to endure a quick VAR check for handball before the goal was given.

On the defender, Hodgson said after full time:

Tyrick Mitchell got a round of applause when he walked into the room. That is something more deserving than that. His performance today was outstanding in every respect. To get an assist and the winner against a team of Aston Villa’s quality – happy days for him. Second half he combined extremely well with Eze and (Wilfried) Zaha. Often a part of chances.

He has got in the team before and had to drop out through injury. What he needs now is an injury-free period but he has all the qualities I think needed to be a very good Premier League left-back.

GET THE GUAITA

Vicente Guaita (£4.8m) was among the substitutes for the first time since 2018/19, with Jack Butland (£4.5m) handed a rare run-out:

Ahead of kick-off, Roy Hodgson said of his goalkeeping selection:

Jack Butland, we wanted to make certain he got a game, at least, before the end of the season. So Vicente stepped aside for him.

The operative words from that Hodgson quote are “at least”; one could read into the manager’s comments that may Butland earn another start over the final two Gameweeks of the season.

In his post-match press conference, Hodgson added:

Not a question of rotating the keepers at this moment. Vicente has been the No 1 keeper but it’s nice to know that the faith we have in Jack to play, nice to see that justified. He’s had to wait a long time. (Butland was) good, very good. Made one wonder-save, think it was offside anyway. But I thought he was very good.

SHOTS FIRED

While FPL bosses may not be targeting either of these teams for their assets, there is encouragement for attacking players facing both sides.

Between them, the two defences allowed over 40 efforts on goal during their Blank Gameweek 36 clash.

Crystal Palace face Arsenal (H) and Liverpool (a) in their final two matches of the season, while Aston Villa take on Spurs (a) and Chelsea (H).

The defensive displays from both sides in Gameweek 36 bode particularly well for those planning to captain Spurs and Liverpool players – namely Harry Kane (£11.8m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) – in Gameweeks 37 and 38, respectively.

While investment is unlikely at this stage, Jack Grealish (£7.5m) could make the Villa XI for one of those two matches.

The midfielder was brought on after 63 minutes on Sunday, earning around a half-hour of pitch time.

Asked if Grealish will start in one of Gameweek 37 or Gameweek 38, Dean Smith responded:

I’m hopeful. He’s pushing, he’s had no reaction in his first game (against Everton) or today so he’s building those minutes.

Matt Cash (£5.0m) is out for the remainder of the season, while Tyrone Mings (£5.4m) is expected back for Gameweek 37.

“Cashy will miss the last two games. It is a recurrence of a hamstring injury. Nowhere near as bad as last time but enough to put him out for a couple of weeks. Tyrone should be fit for Wednesday.” – Dean Smith


Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Butland; Mitchell, Cahill, Kouyaté, Ward; Schlupp, McCarthy (Tomkins 73′), Eze; Zaha, Benteke, Townsend.

Aston Villa XI (4-2-3-1): Martínez; Targett, Hause, Konsa, Elmohamady; McGinn, D Luiz; El Ghazi (Wesley 87′), Ramsey (Davis 85′), B Traoré (Grealish 63′); Watkins.


SUNDAY’S OTHER GAMEWEEK 36 ACTION

by SkontoRigga

We’ll have full Scout Notes on the day’s other three Premier League matches to come on Monday.

For now, though, our whistle-stop tour around the Gameweek 36 fixtures at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Hawthorns and Goodison Park rounds up the major talking points.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1-2 LIVERPOOL

A dramatic, emotional, last-gasp goal from Alisson (£5.9m) kept UEFA Champions League qualification in Liverpool’s grasp at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

The Brazilian nodded in Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s (£7.7m) stoppage-time corner to hand the Reds all three points.

Six points for a goal seems like scant reward for such a rare occurrence but attacking returns and bonus points for Alisson and Alexander-Arnold at least compensated for yet another clean sheet loss: Jurgen Klopp’s side have recorded just four shut-outs in their last 18 matches.

Despite this, Alexander-Arnold has only blanked in one of his last eight appearances.

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) has delivered a goal or assist in each of his last six starts, meanwhile, and it was his beautifully taken strike from a Sadio Mane (£11.7m) lay-off that restored parity after Hal Robson-Kanu‘s (£5.2m) opener.

Matheus Pereira (£5.4m) continued his fine form, with an assist for Albion’s goal his eighth goal contribution in the last seven Gameweeks.

And for those that missed the news: an injured Diogo Jota (£7.0m) wasn’t involved in the Black Country and will now be sidelined for the rest of 2020/21.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2-0 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS
Injured Jota out for the season as Mane returns to Liverpool starting XI

Harry Kane (£11.8m) set a new personal best for Fantasy Premier League points in a single campaign, with his goal in Tottenham Hotspur’s comfortable 2-0 win set to take him to the 230-mark once bonus is added.

Kane’s total of 35 goals and assists combined is just one short of his record set in 2016/17.

A goal was the bare minimum he could have expected: his total of seven shots was the joint-highest of Gameweek 36, with two of those efforts striking the woodwork.

Gareth Bale (£9.2m) made it 10 attacking returns in his last five starts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, meanwhile, claiming the assist for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg‘s (£4.9m) goal when his saved shot fell into the path of the Dane.

In a further indictment of Jose Mourinho’s tenure, Spurs had 24 shots and 13 attempts on target in this match – both figures surpassed any amount they had in a single Premier League fixture under their former boss.

EVERTON 0-1 SHEFFIELD UNITED
FPL's joint-cheapest player hauls as Hodgson discusses Guaita benching

Everton sank to a new low at Goodison Park on Sunday, losing to relegated Sheffield United.

The Toffees’ have kept only two clean sheets on home soil all season and they were unable to add to their meagre total against the relegated Blades, a team that had taken only four points from a possible 51 heading into the game.

Teenage striker Daniel Jebbison (£4.5m) did the damage against the Toffees, tapping home from a Jack Robinson (£4.2m) cross – a goal that directly benefitted precisely 0% of the top 10k but one that would have caused much amusement to FPL managers without an Everton defender in their side.

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Both good, but Raphina more likely to start both

      Who is the best Captain? (Regardless of who you own/don’t own)

      A - Kane (AV)
      B - Bruno (Ful)
      C - Salah (burnley)

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Kane for me

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        All good... tough this week!

        1. HVT
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          You might have to make a decision on this....

          1. FPL Pillars
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I wait until pressers before giving an opinion 😀

            1. HVT
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Fair enough, not sure how this will greatly affect your decision and the deadline is only around the corner.

      3. TB303
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Salah

      4. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        B imo

        1. HVT
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          That’s one of each, gonna be a tough call this week for most.
          Is Bruno more of a diff (due to ownership) than the others?

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I guess Bruno and Kane captaincy will be differential this week (based on comments here as many are considering Salah due to Pope absence)

            Could even be equally spread out over those 3

      5. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Bruno for me, considering two factors, a) more rested and b) Fulham are the only team outof those three that do not know how to park the bus.

        Kane has Martinez factor and Salah must be tired and Burnley know how to park.

        1. HVT
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Fair comments, you have justified in some way, United need to put on a show too for fans

      6. Party time
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Bruno(C) because he is a cheat & I like cheating too

      7. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Play one:

        A) Lingard
        B) El Ghazi

      8. Steve McCroskey
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        35 points too much to chase down in my ML? He doesn't have Kane so going to have to go for him as captain next GW.

        1. HVT
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I’m 18 off and have some hope-yours looks v difficult, C Harry and see how it goes.

        2. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          It’s a lot in 2 weeks, possible but unlikely

        3. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Two GW ago I was 30 behind, now I am 27 ahead

          1. FPLord
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            More difficult now to make up ground than in the last two GWs. Doable but you have to get extremely lucky

        4. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

      9. Street Friend
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Jota in for anyone up to 8.7m. (Can be punty)

            The other players are Mo, Kane, Greenwood, Bale and DCL. Guess DCL could be an option too...

        Quite despondent with this group at the moment.. willing the season to end.

        Pickford (Forster)
        TAA Dallas Fofana (Targett Veltman)
        Salah Son Bruno Jota Lingard
        Kane Bamford (Brewster)

        1 FT and 0.1 off Jota to Greenwood

        Take the hit and shift Fofana for Coufal? Or just move Jota on for Raph/Harrison?

        1. antis0cial

        Worth -4 to get Bruno back in?

        A) Jota DCL to Bruno Davis (-4)
        B) Jota to anyone up to 8.1 (would give benching headache)

        Salah,
        Greenwood
        Son
        Chasing by 7pnts, need to risk 🙂

        1. Rassi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          7 pts is not much

          1. Rassi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Salah would be my choice.

        2. Rog.
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I don’t think you need to be punting only being 7 points off. That’s one captain goal.

          I’d stick Salah.

        3. FPLord
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Salah still

      15. Rog.
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I’m 36 point off the top of my ML now partly due to the Mitchell 13 pointer.

        A) Phillips -> TAA (play 4-4-2, Shaw, Dallas, Coufal)
        B) Jota -> Lingard
        C) Both (-4, bench Coufal)

        TIA

          B

        3. FPLord
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Depends on your rival's and your team. I will be doing Jota > Greenwood or Harrison if you need a punt

        4. Rog.
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Thanks all TAA and Lingard would both be differentials for me. Already have Greenwood as well.

          Best home teams to target for the remaining two GWs with fans back in the stadium.

          Ignoring the colours on the tracker, who has the best fixtures remaining? and will having home fans back be a factor?

            Jan did a FFS (members only, paid) article on Friday afternoon about GW36 captaincy - here are some highlights:

            https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2021/05/14/who-is-the-best-fpl-captain-for-blank-gameweek-36/

            - However, it is now expected that Guardiola will opt for a full-strength XI against Newcastle United in Gameweek 36 in the bid to maintain match fitness of his main players, which bodes well for those willing to get in Manchester City assets.

            - In this scenario, Mahrez and Phil Foden (£6.0m) emerge as the two most explosive and exciting Manchester City attacking assets, in my opinion. Both players have established themselves in City’s starting lineup in the second part of the current campaign and neither of them looks to lose their spot anytime soon.

            - The severe lack of Premier League minutes for both players in recent Gameweeks should not discourage potential buyers and owners, as it just seemed to be a case of Guardiola setting his priorities towards cup success. With neither Foden nor Mahrez registering significant game-time in the league, their European form is the best indicator of points potential in Gameweek 36.

            - With the relegation no longer threatening Newcastle and Man City playing their first game since officially achieving the 2020/21 Premier League title, we should expect an open and high-scoring contest. Therefore, both Mahrez and Foden are top captaincy options, with the Algerian having a slight edge as he could be on penalty duties, considering De Bruyne’s absence and recent missed spot-kicks…

            He made 4 (!) transfers last week - 3 on Monday, 1 on Friday - none of those transfers were for these Man City players

            Why did he write up the city prospects so positively... yet fail to add that they were so far down his own list of preferences that he wouldn’t go near them even when making so many transfers?

              Oops Shouldn’t be a reply to Sterling Archer - but question for the scoutcast 🙂

          Captain strategy, big week-who to pick and why!

        4. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1 month, 6 days ago

          Captain-
          Kane Bruno Salah all legitimate options, Son, Greenwood possible differential captains as well ...

        5. FPLord

          Best Jota replacements?

        6. SomeoneKnows
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Best Leeds asset to bring?
          Dallas, Raphinha or Harrison

      17. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Martinez.
        TAA, Shaw, Digne, Dallas.
        Salah, Lingard, Mahrez, Greenwood.
        Kane, DCL.
        Steer, Watkins, Burn, Jota.
        1ft, 0.4m ITB.

        1. Save the FT for the finale!
        2. Martinez -> Meslier. (2 decent games/forewarning for next season).
        3. Jota -> Raphinha/ Harrison/ Willock etc with 1ff + play over Dallas.

        1. Bavarian
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          1- Play Dallas

      18. artvandelay316
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Is this squad GTG or should I make some changes? I am around 100 points clear in my mini league so I don't need to be too careful, and I'd like to try to raise my overall position globally (currently at about 900,000!).
          I have 1FT and 0.5 in bank.

          Meslier (Forster)
          TAA, Philips, Dallas (Rudiger, Mitchell)
          Greenwood, Salah, Bruno, El Ghazi (Lingard)
          DCL, Kane, Bamford

          Cheers.

            Team looks great imo. Could wait till closer to deadline in case of any big changes, otherwise I would hold for 2 frees last gw

            1. artvandelay316
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Cheers, good call. Will keep my eyes on updates and see what happens.

            Need some crazy punt to catch up 46pts. Jota to:

            A) Torres(c)
            B) Mahrez(c)
            C) Harrison
            D) Willock

              Considering A myself

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 6 days ago

              I am between C & D myself because of Pep roulette.

            4. artvandelay316
                1 month, 6 days ago

                I reckon A out of those, but make sure you make someone guaranteed to start VC.

                1. Silecro
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Yeah,true.
                  Seeing Torres start 2 in a row?

                  1. artvandelay316
                      1 month, 6 days ago

                      I kind of do actually, as I imagine they'll want to give him plenty of practice time prior to the ECL final. But maybe he won't start or he'll be subbed.

              • fajmonkey

                I screwed up last week. Missed the deadline and ended up with no captain.

                I'm not 4 points down in my ml from a pretty big lead.

                My team needs a lot of changes.

                Martinez fabri
                Digne castagne philips maguire veltman
                Jwp Lingard Salah Jota Bruno
                Kane Watkins ihenacho

                Rival has taa, holding, mesiler and struijk

                I feel I need that to cover his taa directly
                And I'm thinking upgrade over his Leeds def to dallas

                So maguire and digne to taa and dallas
                Then Jota to willock or raph (anyone under 6.3)? For a -4

                If I risk no taa (I have philips cover for cleanies) I could go
                Maguire to dallas then Jota to greenwood (anyone under 7.9) for no hit.

                Any thoughts?

                (I'm so annoyed about gw36 I don't want to totally kneejerk)

                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  I would take the -4 simply because TAA is too good at the moment, and I expect him to bag himself another assist or 2.

                Martinez to Meslier or keep (other keeper is forster) ?
                Have Jota and Zaha to contend with but I will bench for this week anyways.
                Miles ahead in any leagues that matter and sitting at 7.5K overall.

                  I would keep

              • Traction Engine Foot
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Jota to:

                A Greenwood
                B Son

                1. Stormbringer22

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Anyone tempted by Willock as a Jota replacement in the cheaper price bracket?

                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Good option

                  Yes. In order to afford Salah for the last game of the season. However, I would probably go one of the leeds boys first if I had the money.
