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
Image

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.

  4. Vjm6891

    I feel like I got away with not having Kane this week despite him scoring 8. could have had at least another goal.

    Do I get him in for Ings and Siggy for ESR?

    Already have Son

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Post your team and will you captain him?

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years

        I would be tempted to be honest but get Wikcock instead of ESR

  5. waldo666
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    So, still have my BB and wondering if this week is the week or just activate for the last?

    Any thoughts very much appreciated, 1 FT and 1.4 ITB.

    Martinez
    TAA Dallas Shaw
    Bruno Salah Son Lingard Raphinha

    1. Daniel Jebbison

      You need to play 7 defenders on a BB and in GW 38 the CSs are scarse

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Fair point, cheers.

  6. Lovren an elevator
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Lloris (AVL)

    OR

    Johnstone (WHU)

    ??

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Both will concede. Johnstone has the higher upside but first wait for the bookies

  7. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Will Forster pley this week!

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I think yes 70%

    2. MidTableFantasy
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Hopefully... unlikely CS though

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      No Hassenhutl said Forster gets 2 games and then McCarthy gets 2 games which means McCarthy starts 37

  8. Jonny HOW SON?
    • 6 Years

    Usually when do FPL update the overall and league rankings?
    It surely must be soon

            Might be my biggest decision of the season with LMS final.

            I’d prefer to wait if I can, my options are laid out in a post above

      1. Daniel Jebbison

        You have time to wait. But if you are sure you are going to do it then do it

      looks like going hard in the 35 double and dealing with the 36 blank as best as possible was the way to go.

      Congrats to those that posted a big score in 35 and held out for 36.

      Depends on Bruno if Greenwood is quiet.

      GTG, I'm on Salah(c) over Kane currently.

  12. Daniel Jebbison

    Good night lads. Only 1 more week to go. Stay strong

  13. Mahjongking

    Will ings start for gw37?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      A guess would be yes. Could be wrong though.

  14. Danno - Emre Canada
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Would,you rather bring in TAA or Greenwood, bearing in mind already have Phillips but don’t have Bruno?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I think TAA just for security of starting, depends a bit on who you're shipping out too though.

      1. Danno - Emre Canada
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yep sorry meant to say TAA would come in for Phillips (too sideways)? Greenwood for fodder...

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          TAA much better scoring potential than Phillips so definitely not sideways for mine.

    2. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Can’t ignore TAA’s two fixtures + attacking threat. Think Greenwood will do well this week though.

      1. Danno - Emre Canada
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Ok cheers but worth it instead of Greenwood, would mean play Watkins instead?

  15. dark91
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Is Alisson the best GK option for the last 2 GWs? Or are there cheaper alternatives?

    1. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Meslier. Could punt on Dubravka.
      Liverpool defence not looking great with Williams and Phillips, quite shaky. Can see Wood and Benteke causing them problems if they persist with Williams at CB.

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Both sound good. I like the Meslier pick honestly although both clubs have nothing to play for

        1. leeboy104
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Can't see Bielsa letting his players relax. They'll still be going all out.

          1. dark91
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            That's why I got Dallas and Bamford this week but I prefer spreading the risk and not double up on Leeds' defence

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      If I make a keeper change it will be for Dubravka

      1. dark91

        That's a good shout. Just worried cause they have nothing to play for

        1. MidTableFantasy
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Nor do the teams they're playing = no action! Hopefully.

            • 5 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            Fair enough. Dubravka it is then 🙂

            4 months, 7 days ago

            By the same logic, their game against City shouldn't have had 7 goals.

          Darlow injured so they won’t rotate but there’s still money to be had for the club finishing higher up

      2. dark91
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks for the suggestion. Worked out well 🙂

          Cheers. I balked after not bringing in Allison for his goal ha so just kept Mendy

    3. MidTableFantasy
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I went Dubravka

  16. Bleh
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    2.1 ITB. Already did Jota > Greenwood. Any hits needed?

    Martinez
    Dallas, TAA, Digne
    Salah, Lingard, Son, Greenwood (c)
    Kane, Nacho, Bamford

    Subs: Sanchez, Gundo, Struijk, Targett

  17. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    What to do for GW37?

    A) Konsa to Dallas
    B) Jota to Harrison
    C) Jota to Raphinha

    Seems that B or C is the obvious move, but also thinking about A, because I don't want to play Konsa or Vestergaard as my 2 remaining defenders, in case Shaw gets benched.

    I can still bench one of Watkins, Nacho, JWP or Saka with Jota out

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      C

  18. Six Season Wonder
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Current GW37 team (1FT) - (scared of not having salah)

    Guaita
    Shaw - Dallas - TAA - Coleman
    Bruno - Greenwood - Bale - Son
    Kane - Bamford
    ---
    Subs_ Sanchez; Nacho, Martinelli, Targett.

    -
    I still have WC which I planned to save to final GW.
    But should I use it now to get in Salah?

    1. ZimZalabim
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      use it now
      get two weeks worth of quality out of it
      I would drop one spurs attacker for sure among other changes

      But u have a solid chance to make up ground over two weeks rather than one, get salah get some differentials

      What are you aiming for and what is ur current position ?

  19. leeboy104
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Pickford
    Konsa Shaw TAA
    Zaha Salah(c) Lingard Greenwood
    Watkins Kane Bam

    Guaita Siggy Ward Castagne
    1 FT 0.4 ITB

    a) Castagne to Dallas
    b) Zaha/Siggy to Raph
    c) Roll transfer
    d) Something else

    1. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      A and bench Konsa

      1. leeboy104
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks

    2. fn.jota
      4 months, 7 days ago

      a , i would consider watkins to antonio too

      1. leeboy104
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks. Had considered Antonio. Watkins hasn't been great but is somehow getting returns lately. Would you give him the Spurs game or move him for a -4 along with Dallas?

  20. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Thoughts on a punt on Saint Maximum for the last two games, folks? (SHEFF and ful)

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Great fixtures, finally healthy, scores in bunches. Expect 10 or 2, but pretty good punt

    2. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Not keen

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Newcastle playing well the last few games, but less keen after today's Sheffield United result, I must admit...

    3. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      He flatters to deceive, runs around a lot but delivers little, no returns in last four. That said, he is a flat track bully, so who knows?

    4. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      why not Willock?

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        this

  21. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Start mount or ings ?

    1. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Ings

  22. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Quite amazing that Ings Antonio DCL Bamford all let us down this week

    Would you use ft to bring in Greenwood or roll with this team to have 2FT in 38?

    Mendy Forster
    Trent Shaw Keane Dallas Holding
    Salah Bale Harrison El Ghazi Lingard
    Kane DCL Ings

    Before you ask, yes I played Harrison this week but benched El Ghazi

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      What a week for you...

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Captained Ings though.....

        1. The Suspended One
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 7 days ago

          Oh no...

          Tough season for non template moves....

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 7 days ago

            That’s the thing with the likes of Salah. You captain in dgw and don’t get big returns so you look elsewhere to make up ground and get burnt. But I knew the risks as I am chasing

            1. The Suspended One
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              4 months, 7 days ago

              I got screwed going for Pulisic and Watkins on my FH, no Greenwood no DCL

              We do it to ourselves really 😀

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Probably yea, bring in Greenwood

    3. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Anyone else here?
      Make 2 moves or roll transfer

  23. Reeker
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    What to do. What to do. Only up 4 points from mini league rival

    Martinez
    Coufal - Trent - Shaw - Dallas
    Lingard - Son - Salah - Raphinha
    Kane - DCL

    (Areola) (Iheanacho, Rudiger, Jota)

    1 Ft 1.7 m ITB

    Got a lot of depth so not worried about offloading Jota. Rival has Antonio so was thinking of covering his points by doing Iheanacho to Antonio for West Brown. Then benching one of DCL, Lingard, one of the defenders.

    Could save and attack the final game week

    Maybe Jota to Greenwood (rival has Fernandes)

    Anything else I don't see?

    1. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I think I'd do the Greenwood transfer to have some Man U cover.

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

    What do I do with 2 FT?

    Martinez - Areola
    TAA - Dias - Digne - Maguire - Struijk
    Salah - Bale - Lingard - Siggy - JWP
    Kane - Bamford - Nacho

    0.1 ITB

    1. squ1rrel
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I have just enough to do Siggy + JWP -> Raph + Greenwood

      1. Pep's Money Laundry
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Good moves

      2. leeboy104
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Nice transfers

  25. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Is Vydra nailed?

    1. Little Frank
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I would say so, Dyche stays pretty loyal to his players and he was unlucky not to score v Leeds.

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Seems to be starting pretty much every game now. Is J-Rod injured? I certainly think he starts ahead of Barnes these days, anyway...

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Cheers both

  26. fn.jota
    4 months, 7 days ago

    who is more essencial for final GW's?

    A - Antonio
    B - TAA

    1. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I'm going to go on form and say TAA. Last 8 GWs have been really good. However, read somewhere about Antonio's underlying stats and to expect a haul in one of the final 2 GWs.

    2. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Tough to say but I'd like to have both 😀

  27. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Best Jota replacement? 7.0m max so can't be Greenwood. My attack is as follows:

    Salah, Fernandes, Son, Jota*, Raphinha
    Kane, Antonio

    Lingard? Tempted by Foden for one week as well.

    1. Lostrich
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I really like ASM. Considering dumping Lingard for him myself.

    2. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Willock or Rodrigo would be my suggestions

  28. hotine
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    This has sort of been discussed but which would you get in Dubravka (SHU, ful) or Meslier (sou, WBA)?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Dubravka not a bad shout especially if you already have Dallas.

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Meslier 100%

    3. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      What 'keepers do you currently own, as a matter of interest? 🙂

    4. hotine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Forster and Sanchez currently and I don’t own Dallas or any toon or Leeds players I’m starting (just have Ayling). Thanks all

  29. waldo666
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    Funny how targets shift, 29 points off 100k with BB to play, doable?

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      It's possible but probably more likely that you'll come short

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah, this is my gut feel unfortunately.

    2. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Yes IMO. Obviously you'll need a good BB which has proven to be somewhat unpredictable this season.

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah, all hinges on a decent BB really doesn't it, fingers crossed!

    3. hotine
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      I think very doable. Let’s say an “average” BB is worth 16? Means 13 over two weeks I’m aiming to make up 14 in two weeks and believe it about 50% likely

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 6 days ago

        Cheers.

  30. C_G
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 days ago

    so happy to enter top 900k OR after missing first 3 GWs. Need help here now!

    Have 0 FTs, 0.6 ITB, anything worth a hit?

    Martinez

    Holding TAA Dallas Shaw

    Lingard Salah Greenwood Son

    Kane DCL

    Forster El Ghazi Ward Nacho

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 days ago

      GTG

    2. leeboy104
      4 months, 7 days ago

      Don't see anything worthy of a hit. Who are you captaining?
