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

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Milivojevic, McArthur, Gallagher, Ayew, Zaha, Edouard

        Costly game, that

    Have a fair few players to get rid of and some I really want to get in. Wild card now or hang on until next week?

      Hang

    2. Kellz86

      I went for the WC, just too many fires to put out so if you have a similar dilemma just go for it

      If most of the players have good fixtures this week then why not wait \o/
      If not then why wait

        They have good fixtures but are injured.

      I think with Liv-Mci in GW7 and uncertainty of IB it is better to WC in GW8.

      I’ve just decided to pull the trigger, mainly to get rid of my defense and Torres.

        Tough with so many rises and drops.

      UCL and Europa games this week.

      My WC is long gone but if I still had it, I would activate it next week.

      The other reason is seeing how Lukaku and Ronaldo get on GW7. It is becoming clear that it is better to have only one. Both blanking is like a knockout punch.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Oh yeah I hadn’t thought about your last point. 4 points from 24m

      Wildcarding around an international break has always been a disaster for me.

      Would never advise it.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        I’ve never done it in the second break.

      Just do it, I've played mine half way through last week and it felt great.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        It’s so close. I think all the price adjustments might push me to it.

      If you can gain enough more pts this week with WC, you can even take hits during next and be winning with that decision! Always bank pts if possible.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        For this week only before WC next week. Digne (or Shaw if injured) to

        A) Rudiger
        B) Alonso
        C) Ask again on Friday

        1. Kellz86
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Alonso for higher ceiling or Rudiger seemingly more secure.

          I’m on Alonso currently

            2 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks guys!

            If Chilwell plays midweek then Alonso is locked in.

            Would be a little worried about a Chilly runout if not but then Rudy could get benched too.

            Probs Alonso either way bit will wait til Friday.

          Similar moves for me. Rudiger likely to rise? Do u consider bringing him in now?

          1. Bagheri Arce
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Nah, too risky.

            Unless you will get priced out but assume not given you are looking at Alonso too.

            Just wait dude

        6. enourouz

          Bagheri Arce! I love the tag name!!!

          Watch out for Iran WC 2022. Best team yet since the Daei, Mahdavikia, Bagheri era.

          Team Melli would have advanced to group stage in WC2018 had they not drawn the worst group.

          B for me. I dropped Shaw for Alonso today. Shaw's injury came at the right time as their fixture run gets nasty now...whereas Alonso's fixture run is looking nice.

          However, with my luck, Tuchel will go and start chilwell GW7. Either way I picked up Alonso as a long term pick. Can't see too many fullbacks that are going to offer as much potential for attacking points as he will.

      7. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years

        I am a Gallagher/Palace fan tonight but want Palace to score and concede.

        Gallagher haul INCOMING.

      8. Abra Dubravka
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Duffy/Ronaldo to Rudiger/Lukaku?

      9. Forza Papac
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Lets go Gallagher

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          2ndded!

        2. Gunneryank
            2 months, 8 days ago

            No! Sanchez penalty save on him dang it!

        3. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          The worst part about owning both Lukaku and Ronaldo is both blanking. Feels like the first time you put sand in your mouth as a young child.

        4. DonaldDrapier
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Odegaard, Smith Rowe or Saka or just avoid Arsenal?

          They are all quite cheap

          1. Ógie
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Or get all three of em?

          2. Dthinger
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            I wouldnt get Odegaard. Seems like a string-puller, assist-the-assister type player. He scored a decent free kick but I'm not sure he's on all of them

            1. Ógie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Odegaard is the Arsenal mid i own.

              He is a quality young palymaker who plays in No.10 position.
              I've heard that "assist-the-assister" lark before about such FPL gems as Santi Carzola etc,that's total nonsense.

              1. Gunneryank
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  It's not though imo. He may have some attacking returns, but he is acting as a true #10, and he was immense vs Spurs. Best I've seen him play. In truth, the Gunners look to spread their attack around fluidly, so maybe he plays a part. But Auba and Saka are the more clinical finishers.

                • Dthinger
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Cazorla only had one season in which he had a good FPL return.

                  And Odegaard isnt a 10, he's an 8

                  1. Gunneryank
                      2 months, 8 days ago

                      But he's playing as a 10, since they don't have a good number 8 who can play in the pivot. I think they're better with 2 defensive minded CMs behind the front 4, and Odegaard can fill the 10 role because his passing and awareness is so good. He doesn't have a clinical finishing ability so he is probably better as an 8 as you say, but Arteta seems to like this set up so we'll see how it does.

                      1. Dthinger
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 8 days ago

                        right. An 8 playing as a 10 does not score loads of FPL points

              2. I Member
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Saka

              3. Gunneryank
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Saka might be a juicy option. The Spurs result seemed to fill them with confidence and show what that front 4 can do vs most average league sides. I haven't seen them enjoy their football like that for years. Saka is more explosive and ESR seems a bit more like a link up player, but they could both be in the goals.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  Saka ESR & Ode in that order

              4. Silecro
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 8 days ago

                Is anyone considering bringing Azpi as Che defender? or should i go with Rudiger? money not an issue

                1. caldracula
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  I’m actually looking at Christensen

                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    Great value at 5m but will he play ?

                2. Gunneryank
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    I am because of James injury. I already have Rude Dog. It's either Azpi or Alonso for me. Not sure yet. Waiting for CL fixtures.

                  Good evening,

                  i really want to get Lukaku - but would be at the expense of Jimenez or Antonio. West ham fixtures are getting tough und Wolves fixtures look great. What would you do?

                  (team is:
                  Sanchez, Foster
                  Taa, Cancelo, Shaw, White, Duffy
                  Salah, Raph, Saka, Sarr, Fornals
                  Antonio, Jimenez, Armstrong)
                  5.1 atb

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    Would lose Armstrong for Kaku & replace Fornals with a cheaper option
                    Shaw to a Chelsea defender fir good measure

                      Thank you.
                      That is a good idea, and simpler than my plan. (Fornals to ESR and Shaw to Livra to fund Grealish for gw 8 at the expense of Sarr (-8))
                      Would you take a hit or wait for gw 8?

                  Just gotta bite the bullet and choose one mate. With Antonio form and EO it's gotta be Jim. Wait til pressers tho

                    Thx. That would be the sensible move, i guess.

                  Why would Sanchez not get a save for that Zaha attempt a few minutes into the game?!

                    It was a cross attempt.

                      some crosses need to be saved

                        Of course but only shot attempts count as saves in FPL.

                          Was it a cross attempt, though?!

                          A shot should be any touch by an attacking player that would have resulted in a goal without the intervention of the keeper.

                  Anyone making the Shaw>Rudiger switch tonight to catch the rise? Risky on a CL week...

                    Risky yeh, but likely a 0.2m swing. That makes quite a difference.

                        Only at 89% to drop currently. I'm going to wait. Might even play and do well!

                  Gallagher becomes less dangerous when i bring him in!

                      It's why clubs like CPL never progress, they go to the tried and failed option all the time

                        • 12 Years
                        2 months, 8 days ago

                        At this level not getting relegated is progress. Not every club has Emirates money.

                      Has Milli been injured or likely to just be an odd start fir him?

                  1 Sanchez save at least.

                  Gallagher playing well enough to be transferred in ahead of Benrahma, Gray and Saka?

                  1. Bobby Digital
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    Saka is the best pick out of those

                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    Don't see how the Zaha effort a few minutes into the game wouldn't classify as a save from Sanchez!

                      Wasn’t it there he got the save?

                  Recoveries, plenty of passes... this is the day Sanchez gets more than 6!

                    I squeal with delight as I eagerly anticipate my 2 points

                    Fingers crossed. I need 6 points for a draw and 7 or more for a win in my H2H. Leading with 5 wins out of 5 so far. 😮 😀
