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

Subs: Butland, Kouyate, Kelly, Clyne, Schlupp, Hughes, Olise, Mateta, Benteke

Brighton XI: Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Duffy, Burn, Cucurella, Gross, Lallana, Trossard, Maupay, Welbeck

    Are you guys certain Sanchez didn't save the penalty?

      In an alternate universe maybe

        It's called string theory

    In fairness to Brighton they've conceded 5 goals and 2 of those are penalties.

    Clean up your act non-Sanchez players!

      Gray has a dodgy fixture run and Gallagher is too hard to resist I think now

      Gray going rip De Gea apart

          The cheap three mids are combining great for Everton

    Where are the experts who put Sanchez in the GW1 template? Ruined my season...

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Wrong account, FPL Virgin...

  6. JBG

    Oh pi** right off Tossard.

  7. Gunneryank

      Serious question: why so many wishing to bust Brighton cleanie? Just so many managers with Palace assets, or ML rivals with Brighton defense, Duffy, etc?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Brighton Def double up.

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Big Brighton defense ownership

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Brighton double ups. I even played Foster this week so I was doubly rooting against it.

      4. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Their defensive EO is ~100%

        A Brighton CS would add 6 points to the average, before bonus. Sanchez was on for 10+ points.

      5. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Mixed emotions here as i started both Gallagher and Duffy.

      6. OLEgend
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        ML rivals with Sanchez and Duffy, I would love another Palace goal.

      7. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        As everyone has noted, lots of double ups

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

      Zaha may just enter my team sooner or later.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I know right? In what world do we go mad for Torres yet overlook Zaha in an attacking Palace side. On pens too.

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

          Great price as well for a player on penalties 🙂

      2. Gunneryank
          2 months, 3 days ago

          You misspelled Saka. ;D

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

        Who would you rather have on GW8 WC?

        A. Ronaldo
        B. KDB

        1. Stupendous
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Not even close

          Ronaldo

          Kdb is the most overpriced player in the game

          1. Cok3y5murf
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Sterling*

          Neither

        4. Gunneryank
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Seriously?

          • dshv

            Nobody!

            Saka/ESR, Gallagher.

              • 5 Years

              How did I forgot King Raph, wait for his update though...

          2. OLEgend
            • 7 Years

            Raphinha,Gallager

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            Saka, look at the fixtures ahead for weeks.

          4. Gunneryank
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Raph or Saka

          5. Bun Rab
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Cheap midfield carrying my expensive forward line. C'mon Connor!

          6. FCSB
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            I should never have got my hopes up with double Brighton defence grrrr

          7. Scholes Out For Summer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Gallagher looks very involved but off set pieces with Mili on the field 🙁

            1. OLEgend
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              But finding himself in very attacking positions

            2. Rainer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Mili's corners have been awful tbf, mightnt be gone forever.

            3. BENOIT
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              He lost all corners?

              1. Scholes Out For Summer
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                yep. maybe viera puts him back on though cause mili hasnt been very good

            • 3 Years

            Pick 2 out of these
            1. Raphina
            2. Sarr
            3. Gallagher
            4. ESR
            5. Gray

            1. OLEgend
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              1 3

            2. Bam Saka Laca
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 3 days ago

              1 and 3

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Raphinha Gallagher

              1. Lindelol
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Gallagher better than Gray and Sarr?

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  Yes imo. The stats say he's better and by a fair margin.

                  1. Lindelol
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 3 days ago

                    Yes but the upcoming fixtures is the issue

            4. Bun Rab
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              1,2. There's gonna be goals in that game.

                • 3 Years

                Yes currently on this

              1 & 3

            7. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              1 and 3 because they have returned this week

                • 3 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                They all did

                This feels like GW4 with CR7 and Lukaku

                It's the best week for all the cheap mids. But just like the GW4 threemium, it most likely won't define the season

            8. Cruicky
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              This week only 1 & 2.
              After GW8 - 1 & 3.

          10. Dannyb
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Did Torres to Zaha, feeling pretty smug now, not gonna lie.

            • 5 Years

            Hmmm keep Greenwood for now or get rid for a hit?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Keep this week, especially if he gets another UCL rest.

              You surely have bigger fires this GW.

              1. Atimis
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Done Shaw to Rudiger so either I get rid of Greenwood for a hit or keep him.

            2. Gunneryank
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Not for a hit, but soon. United look disjointed and have a terrible fixture run soon.

              It's clear pen because I have gallagher, no BHA def

              I am in head-to-head match with a mate and I'm leading by 8 pts, with Guaita to go.
              He has Gallagher ofc. Why on the earth had to be him involved ffs?!

                Haha my brother had Guaita, and I helped my Dad with his team this week and brought Gallagher in for him!! Wish I’d id brought Traore in now!! Hehe

              • 4 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              As if Gallagher got another assist, literally every player I don’t have scores points

            7. Stupendous
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Leicester, and both Arsenal (rejuvenated), and City away in the next 4 for Palace

              Hardly inspires excitement to me.

                Yeah I think it's fine to wait till GW11 before jumping on Gallagher or Zaha.

                1. Stupendous
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  Same. One less team to focus on for now
                  Ta

                • 5 Years

                Leicester (home), Arsenal (away), Newcastle (home).

                That is not bad. I own Schmeichel (dno what I am doing at this point tbh), and I will most certainly field Gallagher next GW.

                  Yeah it's not bad, just not must have either.

                    No I agree. But handy player if going for the TAA, Salah, Lukaku and CR7 quadro (even with Antonio too).
                    Just felt the poster was somewhat misleading people a bit on here since Newcastle at home was left out 😀

              Raphinha misses out GW 8 right?

              Brazil game too late for a GW 8 start I guess

              1. Joey Tribbiani
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 3 days ago

                If he even goes with these injury problems

                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  Then he won’t start GW 8 as well

                  Brazil medical staff to ascertain if he’s fit enough to participate

                      I’m talking about the club claiming injury after gw7. In that case Brazil conducts a check and decides

                      Nothing to wait on that bit of info

                        But it’s not like Leeds will say that he is injured and Brazil will say nope, he is good to go.

                I wonder if he withdraws from the international matches to get some rest??

                  It’s his first ever call up

                    Oh is it, didn’t Know that, he’ll want to go then!!

                    T'was his first call up in the previous window and he chose not to go then

                      no, the PL/FA stopped the Brazilians from going - as Brazil is on the red list so they'd have to quarantine upon return. this time, it seems they'll relax that to allow them to play.

                2 months, 3 days ago

                that's the thing, he'll want to go 100% after last time, so he can't risk injury GW7. However, if he misses this weekend, will Brazil still select him? Tough spot.

                I'd still keep/get him in for WC. Best player at that price point, nice GW9 & 10 fixtures.

              Ditching Bruno and Bamford. Have 3.0 itb bank
              Lukaku up front.
              Leaves 11.1 for a midfield slot

              Who would you go for?

                  he'll lose bonus if Palace keep a clean sheet past 60 minutes

                    As long as their is CP own goal during extra time rhe situation at 60 mins doesn't matter 😉

                  Won't be once the Palace CSs roll in.

                    still possible, probably needs more than 1 save

                  45 mins to go, going to be picking ball out the net again.

                Minutes and performance expectation from Hause moving forward?

                  None and none, Tuanzebe is preferred afaik

                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  Tuanzebe on loan from United, couldn't play vs them.

                  Hause might keep his spot after the CS but he'd be first to drop out for Tuanzebe and he's 4th choice CB if they moved back to a 4.

                  Avoid.

                It’s not all bad, Sanchez has got Norwich in his next four games….

                … along with Arsenal, City and Liverpool

                    That is why I have moved to a premium GK but have not owned Sanchez. Ha ha

                  I’ve already done Torres > ESR, someone talk me out of taking a -8 and doing Jota & Bamford > Gallagher/Sarr and Lukaku…

                  Sanchez
                  Trent - Rudiger - Marcal
                  Salah - Jota - ESR - Gray

                      You have to make sure you finish it, otherwise it turns to cement.

                        Basicly wheat and sugar bars.

                        Nice thing to have for breakfast but they are no substitute for porridge.

                            Sounds like frosted mini-wheats, which is lovely.

                              There are reasons why Americans are THE sickest creatures to EVER walk the face of the Earth.

                              There are similar reasons why Brits aren't far behind.

                              There are a few listed here.

                              At least Frosted mini-wheats have a nice taste for people to get a craving for (like all junk!)!

                                    I don't know about that.

                                    Your chocolate is simply awful, and British sweets/candy, is a mile ahead.

                                    You've got more processed crap sure.

                                    I'd take the British poison over the Yanks

                                    American fast food isn't even as good as British either tbh.

                                    Indian, Chinese, kebabs, fish and chips over your burgers, pizza and similar versions of "Asian" food.

                                        Maybe. You may have not had American fast food, but maybe you have. The best of it is amazing. We may not have Indian and Chinese the way it should be, but real hamburgers and pizza are mana from heaven. Still junk food mind, but elevated to an art form.

                                        Plus our trump card is hispanic food. I won't piss on the Indian cuisine you may boast, but you haven't lived until you've had our street tacos. Just saying.
