3pm kick-off team news: Gallagher, Livramento and Pukki miss out

The dust of Gameweek 19 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) has barely settled but we’re already up and running for Gameweek 20, with three matches kicking-off at 15:00 GMT: Crystal Palace v Norwich City, Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur and Watford v West Ham United.

At Selhurst Park, Conor Gallagher is absent for the home side, with Jack Butland, James Tomkins and the suspended Wilfried Zaha also dropping out for Vicente Guaita, Marc Guehi, Jeffrey Schlupp and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

Norwich – who have scored just eight league goals all season – have made six changes from their Gameweek 19 defeat to Arsenal, with Sam Byram, Dimitris Giannoulis, Jacob Sorensen, Pierre Lees-Melou, Christos Tzolis and Adam Idah coming in for Max Aarons, Brandon Williams, Ozan Kabak, Kieran Dowell, Joshua Sargent and Teemu Pukki.

Elsewhere, Ralph Hasenhuttl makes six changes, with Shane Long and Adam Armstrong paired up front together. That means Armando Broja is a substitute, while Tino Livramento misses out altogether with fluid in his knee.

For Spurs, they make three changes from their 3-0 Boxing Day win over Palace. In come Ben Davies, Harry Winks and Dele Alli, with Japhet Tanganga, Oliver Skipp and Lucas Moura all dropping to the bench.

Claudio Ranieri, meanwhile, makes three changes for Watford’s first game since December 10th, as Francisco Sierralta, Adam Masina and Ozan Tufan replace William Troost-Ekong, Jeremy Ngakia and Tom Cleverley.

Their opponents, West Ham United, also make changes. Captain Declan Rice is suspended, so Mark Noble makes a rare start in midfield, with Jarrod Bowen, Manuel Lanzini and Said Benrahma lining up behind Michail Antonio in David Moyes’ usual 4-2-3-1 formation.

    Very rare this season that something has worked out well. WC1 played last night, brought in Bowen, Edouard, Son, King & Antonio.

    Kept Salah, Foden. Could be a big one.

      Wow, almost like its a game of luck

      1. Pep bites Kun

        Can't class bench or autosubs as luck during this covid/fast turnaround period

      I'm in that boat 😐

      It's nice for the luck to finally come around. I had 33pts on the bench in GW11 and several other double figure bench point hauls

      A good bench is good management.

    When will the doubles be confirmed for 21 or 22?

    Before the deadline hopefully?!

      21 should be pre-deadline. 22 probably not, it's a long way away yet.

    2. Root

      I'd assume the GW 21 DGW will be confirmed before the GW 21 deadline.

    3. CroatianHammer

      Ah, DGWs... will have a FT or FH for GW21, but can't be worrying about that until Friday. Villa second game is all but confirmed.

    Currently have triple city and triple arsenal so many transfer hits required to achieve a good dgw22 team.

    Anyone else in a similar position?

    Considering using second FH chip in dgw22 rather than spending pts building for it (especially as city players I would be selling have good gw23+ fix)

    1. lugs
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      yeah, i'm kinda in the same boat and a FH is probably the way to go

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 20 days ago

      Just play through it with good players then. History has shown sgw player can outperform dgw'ers

  5. KAPTAIN KANE

    Any other Vardy owners in the room?
    Do we think he starts this one?

  6. El Presidente

    Captaining Son was a great idea.

    1. DARE TO BISCAN

      • 3 Years

      Ok

    Which city mid wpuld you get on WC if any? Cheers

      I suspect KDB may be safest long term. But Pep Roulette is a dangerous game as you know

    How many more times is Henderson going to slice volley over
