Bissouma absent as Edouard makes first start for Palace

In the final match of Gameweek 6, Crystal Palace host Brighton and Hove Albion at Selhurst Park in the M23 derby.

Kick-off is at 20:00 BST.

Odsonne Edouard (£6.5m) makes his first start for Palace, having scored twice as a substitute against Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 4.

Luka Milivojevic (£5.4m) also features in the starting XI, with Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.5m) and Christian Benteke (£6.3m) dropping to the bench alongside Jeremy Schlupp (£5.4m), who has recovered from a thigh problem.

Eberechi Eze (£5.9m) and Nathan Ferguson (£4.5m) remain sidelined.

As for Brighton, a win at Selhurst Park tonight would see them go top of the Premier League.

Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) and Shane Duffy (£4.3m) – who are currently owned by 25.4% and 22.5% of FPL managers respectively – both start, but Yves Bissouma (£4.6m) misses out with a knee injury and is replaced by Pascal Gross (£6.0m).

Dan Burn (£4.4m) is also in for Solly March (£5.4m).

Tariq Lamptey (£4.4m) again makes the bench, with Graham Potter stating last week that they will carefully manage his return to fitness.

GAMEWEEK 6 LINE-UPS

    Veltman really pulled through went from a red arrow to a green arrow over that last minute assist

    Anyone who watched the game- how did Gallagher look?

    Looks like he's off majority of set pieces now that Mili is back, unfortunately.

    Happy with the won penalty and seems that he had joint most touches in the box in what wasn't much of an offensive affair

    Cheers

      He looked very good.

      Palace are still a work in progress though - especially in attack. More or less as I expected the defence has improved much more quickly. Think it reasonable to assume that the attack will gel and open play goals will come but maybe not that many. In any event Gallagher will be key to most good things that happen. He's in the area at every opportunity - no accident that he got the pen from that point of view.

        Cheers. His positioning is surprisingly deep compared to teammates, but seems to have a knack to make the forward runs when necessary.

      He looks like a red card waiting to happen.

      Yes, I hope Luka gives up his corners.

      Gallagher will tick over very nicely, it just a shame from set-pieces he was less influential, and Brighton having five at the back made it more difficult for his lat runs into the box, which he has been doing a lot more than tonight too.

      1. pingissimus
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Given Luka's delivery I'm not sure how long he'll stay on them - and unless we've added a set piece coach to the set up rather suspect it's all notional anyway. It's not a great record we have there.

  3. Paratrooper

    Wildcard Team

    McCarthy, Foster
    TAA, Rudiger, Cancelo, White, Livramento
    Salah, Son, Raphinha, Benrahma, Allan
    Lukaku, Antonio, Scarlett

    Other option is Son to Grealish
    Scarlett to Toney

    Thoughts??

    1. The Knights Template

      The only Scarlett worth my time is the Scarlett Witch. Capiche?

      1. pingissimus

        I Wanda what you're on about

        1. The Knights Template

          You lack vision!

    2. Harry the Hack

      wouldn't go spending 10m on Son right now

    Am I only one who thinks Ronaldo to Lukaku is pretty sideways this week? Both can easily haul, might just roll and cap Ronalod, Lukaku can come in after Brentford

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Not on your own at all, I am keeping and capping Ronaldo this week and no plans to move him on just yet, leaving Lukaku for now.

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Also Chelsea are not exactly an attacking powerhouse currently mid table for xg

        1. Ze_Austin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          To be fair to Tuchel, that stat is based on his opponents so far

          They park the bus if you're good, and bully you if you're average/bad. Fits Lukaku perfectly too

          1. Cheeto__Bandito
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            yea thats fair enough, just think Ronaldo can outscore him as EVE and lei are not much worse fixt than SOU and brentford.

            1. Ze_Austin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              I don't disagree. Only selling CR7 in GW8 because I can't ignore Jesus + Grealish + Cancelo

              Would have kept until GW9 otherwise

    £0m itb. 1 FT. Got James, Shaw and Trent. Hate early transfers but would you guys suggest doing James > Rudiger tonight before I'm priced out?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Probs yeah. Thinking the same. Just correct the error

  6. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    All set barring bad news midweek/injuries to TAA etc....

    ?

    Sanchez
    Rudiger Taa Cancelo
    Salah Sarr ESR Raph Gray
    Lukaku (v) Ronaldo (c)

    Steer Livramento Manquillo Scarlett 0ft .1itb

    1. The Knights Template

      Looks good but I'd ditch the witch.

      1. Harry the Hack
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Good Sir! Stop it!

  7. bso
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Start Gray or Marcal?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Gotta be Gray

  8. Apollo Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Anyone thinking about Elyounoussi?

    Good upcoming fixtures, on the goals imminent table and always seems to pass the eye test.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Can't stop think about him.

  9. Moose™

    Hi all,

    Thoughts?

    Sanchez

    TAA Rudiger Coufal

    Salah Gray Benny D.Luiz

    CR7 Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Gilmour Williams Livramento

    0FT & 0.5ITB (WC Intact)

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      What's a D.Luiz and why is it in your starting 11?

      1. Moose™
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        My plan next week to drop Coufal and Gilmour..

        To upgrade Gilmour to max 5.5 mid.. ESR is one of the option..

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I don't think my question was answered. Are you running for public office?

    2. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I dont understand. Where is all you money? You have 2x 4.5s and 2x 4.0s, Gray and Benrahma.

      Triple big hitters and TAA seems not so good to me.

      1. Moose™
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I dont wanna drop any of CR7, TAA, and Salah.. Lukaku might haul..

        Might drop CR7 if United's form not improving..

    3. Thinkering like a Boss
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      where is your money going? looks cheap tbh

  10. gart888
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    James to Rudiger before price changes?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      What if James plays and hauls?

      1. gart888
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Then I feel like crap. When will we find out some news on his injury? I thought he'd probably be out until the international break?

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Definitely until IB, apparently waiting on scans for severity

          1. gart888
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Yeah, in that case seems to make sense to just swap him for Rudiger and be done with it. I don't want to be without a Chelsea defender against a toothless southampton.

            I guess the only question is if I should go Christensen instead?

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              check ben dinnery, he's good for injury updates

              there are 3 levels:
              Christensen - cheap but ceiling of 6 points
              Rudiger - probably most assured of starts, no cameos but rarely attacking returns also only played ~1800 total season mins last 2 campaings
              Azpi/Alonso - offers both defensive and attacking returns as wingbacks but costs more

              1. gart888
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Yeah, I'm thinking Christensen is probably the way to go. I'm scared of Chilwell messing with Alonso's run, and I'm not comfortable shelling out so much for Azpi right now.

                I'm surprised so many people are willing to pay 0.6 more for Rudiger over Christensen really.

                1. Salah’s Sonnet
                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  isn't it because Christensen isn't nailed?

                  1. gart888
                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Yup, but he's still pretty safe. He's started 5 of 6 games this year, and he's not much of a threat to sub in if he doesn't start.

                    1. HMC
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 11 Years
                      2 months, 9 days ago

                      also think he's played more early on because Silva was out. You'd hope Silva is first choice for UCL then AC plays majority of PL games.

                      Similar with Liverpool and Matip vs Virgil/Trent but different price points.
                      For those not going both Lukaku Ronaldo I think it's wiser to go with the more attacking defenders.

  11. Lallana

    ASM is so unlucky not to have 3 assists

    1. Ruth_NZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      He's not really.

      With Wilson out he'll be lucky if anyone converts any chance at all. 😉

      1. Lallana
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Haha it's dreadful seeing them miss these easy chances

    I’m currently planning this for next week, is the midfield too weak here? Overall I do like it but my only concern is midfield being a bit lightweight - thoughts on the below?

    Sanchez

    Alonso / Livramento / TAA / White

    Raphinha / Salah / Sarr

    Ronaldo / Lukaku / Antonio

    Subs: Steele / Allan / Douglas Luiz / Williams

    On WC would you rather:
    A: Grealish
    B: Jiminez
