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

    Were Trossard and Russell Howard separated at birth?

    Alzata brought on to do a job on Gallagher?

    Azpilicueta is a better FPL option than Rudiger, especially short term.

    Change my mind.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      no

      1. soup natsi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        yes

    2. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      also more expensive

    3. Revival

      If your thinking just cause James is injured there won't be rotation in the Chelsea defence I would disagree with that

      1. soup natsi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        without James he'll surely get more game time then he would otherwise. I agree there will be rotation but not sure if Rudiger is more nailed on than Azpilicueta.

        6 mil for the same job

          2 months, 3 days ago

          Do you see the same attacking return potential? I think Azpi is clear.

      • Gunneryank
          2 months, 3 days ago

          If it was 2015 sure maybe.

            averaging 5 assists and 1.5 goals a season since.

          Points per start this season

          Azpi - 4.4
          Rudi - 5.67

          Shots this season

          Azpi - 1
          Rudi - 4

          Price

          Azpi - 6
          Rudi - 5.6

          Looks a no brainer tbh

            • 6 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            xA paints a different picture. Also Rudiger's career average is 2 goals and assist as season, Azpi has way higher ceiling.

              That’s fair, you seem convinced on paying the extra so go ahead

                I'm genuinely looking for a reason to not pay the extra, take the safe route, and get the price rise tonight.

        Bottomed:

        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
        Antonio - Bamford - Cr7

            Doubt PL would allow any Brazilians to leave after the fiasco

          GW 8 WCers, what’s the plan with Raphinha if he goes away with Brazil? He will miss GW 8 then.

          Keep on WC and bench or get rid?

            • 5 Years

            Livramento vs a Raph-less Leeds at home covers well.

            1. pundit of punts
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Leeds have enough firepower without Raph to put a few past Southampton though

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                A worthy comprise for one week to save a transfer?

                Livramento fairly handy attacking wise and Leeds awful defensively.

          Milivojevic terrible form

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years

            Is he eating his soup with a dessert spoon?

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

          There's something a bit surprising about the returns of Foden and KDB

          They haven't threatened Grealish. At all

          Foden's been a direct threat to Torres at false 9, and KDB threatens that Bilva/Gündo AM axis

          Seems it's Grealish + Jesus nailed with Sterling + Mahrez as second tier

          Which is rather weird, because Sterling and Mahrez were first choice for so long

          1. Big_Andy_GAWA
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Mental that Mahrez hasn't started any of the 6 Prem games. Superb player!!!

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

              He started the first, and probably benched himself (in Pep's eyes) with his performance in that loss

              1. Nanoelektronicar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                One thing: Jesus. He's been so good as a right winger and now scored such an important goal. It will be very hard for Mahrez to dislodge him.

          2. Nanoelektronicar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            4-4-2 that City employed to press Chelsea could be just one off. Nothing certain there yet, though I agree that Mahrez and Sterling are second string now. Surprising for Mahrez, but Jesus put up some good performances. Sterling is not part of the best City 11 since the spring, imo.

              Sorry, 4-4-2? It's posted as the usual 4-3-3 in most places:

              Ederson
              Usual back 4
              B. Silva Rodri KDB
              Jesus Foden Jack

                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  Oh. It's been a fluid front 5 from Pep since early last season. Bilva or Gündo recycling (or arriving late), four other attackers all flowing in the box

              I think it's still Cancelo for attacking threat but I like Walker quite a lot with Cancelo double. Means at least one will play surely.

              1. Finding Timo
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Prefer cancelo but can’t afford if go for Christensen this week

                5.5, Camzy

                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 3 days ago

                  I know he's 5.5m. But he plays almost RCB for City. He feels like the 'Christensen' option for City.

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

                    He’s an absolute BAP monster

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

                Cancelo is too expensive, I'm guessing. They asked about 5.5

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

                  Not much of a question is it if it's limited to 5.5m.

                  That's like asking what City striker to buy? Jesus at 8.6m?

                    Laporte an option too surely?

                      Walker is safer

                    Laporte and Stones are the same price range so there are a couple of options, but you're not wrong. Its an easy question

                    Question should be Laporte vs Walker.

              Almost zero I recon, Jimmy and Bob driving up to the duke of York away on a Sunday is a bit different to a PL game

              Spurs vs Chelsea was the net Zero game.

              First covid and now this. 😕

                Well it is a byproduct of covid, at least indirectly.

                1. Ógie
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  Covid is a factor for sure but also cuts in oil production by western country's to satisfy carbon emissions standards along with over regulation and underpay in the haulage sector are playing into shortages also.

                    Ah carbon emissions. Can't live with it, can't live without it.

              I have 11 points coming off the bench.. it'll be pretty lame to still get a red arrow.

                LOL I’m in the same boat. A brace might just about give me a green 🙂

            Could I keep Greenwood or Jota up until GW10? I won't have enough FTs to ship both. Otherwise I could consider Jota to Raphinha (if fit) for -4 this week.

              What's the rush to get rid of Jota? He's been good.

                • 6 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Mixed fixtures and Firmino's return makes me feel like it could be time to ship. But maybe I could hold on and possibly sell Greenwood for GW8.

              I think I'd rather have Raphinha despite the -4. Raph could make that up this week.

                Thanks. I'm tempted by sure. It would be my first hit of the season!

            3. Gunneryank
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Ship Greenwood. Fixtures take a huge dip after GW 8, plus he isn't the same after Ronnie arrived.

                What minute will Lallana go off injured?

                a) 68
                b) 71
                c) 76
                d) he’s been taking horse placenta supplements, he could do extra time

                I’m wildcarding next week.

                With that in mind, thoughts on a Salah and Shaw to Rudiger for -4?

                Everton have been a bit rubbish and can see a big united response

                  Don’t take a hit the week before you wildcard, it doesn’t have enough time to pay back.
