Palace and Everton reward defensive investment in 0-0 draw

Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton

Goals: None

Assists: None

Bonus Points: Yerry Mina x3 (£5.5m), Michael Keane x2 (£5.5m), Jordan Pickford x1 (£5.5m)

Crystal Palace and Everton played out a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park that highlighted both sides’ serious need for a goalscoring forward in the 2019/20 Premier League campaign. 

However, it left Fantasy managers invested in the defences of each team delighted to get clean sheets at the first time of asking.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£8.0m) had two excellent chances for Everton but couldn’t find the back of the net, disappointing the 14% of Fantasy maangers who trusted him with a spot in their Gameweek 1 sqauds.

Meanwhile, strong defending from Michael Keane (£5.5m) and his colleagues, as well as some smart stops from Jordan Pickford (£5.5m), kept Palace at bay to ensure the Merseysiders continued their strong defensive form from the end of the 2018/19 season.

That was welcome news for those who had been a little concerned about the value in Everton’s defence in light of Idrissa Gueye’s departure and Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) remaining at Chelsea.

Palace grew into the game and were helped by the introduction of Zaha

However, it must be said that Palace did spend the first 65 minutes without their talismanic forward player Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) who missed pre-season due to involvement in the African Cup of Nations and reportedly handed in a transfer request towards the end of the summer window.

Selected by 19.8% of managers ahead of Gameweek 1, Zaha was omitted from the starting XI by Roy Hodgson, but came off the bench to a raucous ovation from the Selhurst faithful indicating the fans are both appreciative and understanding of the Ivorian’s situation despite reportedly trying to force a move to Everton.

“I only really saw him on Friday, basically, because I sent him home on Thursday and we didn’t train on Wednesday. But if you are asking me how was he yesterday, he was fine. And today in the dressing room, and in the game? He was excellent in the dressing room, and you could see what he did in the game. The fact is that the situation has been and gone. I am sure Wilf will now make certain he brings his straw to the water to help us have a good season, just like he has in the past two seasons [when I have been here].” – Roy Hodgson

Saturday’s fixture against Everton highlighted that in spite of the situation regarding Zaha and the question marks over his commitment to the club, this is a player with raw and unparalleled ability in Palace’s squad and someone who could make a serious attacking impact for the Eagles in 2019/20. It took him coming on to spark Palace into life.

“I thought he handled it very well. The crowd helped didn’t it, giving him such a great reception. It was nice to have him available. I thought the two front players did an exceptional job, but they were tiring, and it was good to have him to come on, and Connor Wickham too to help keep that momentum that we had going in the latter part of the game. It was never going to be easy to break them down, although I hoped that we might eventually.” – Roy Hodgson

Max Meyer (£5.5m) had a string of promising chance for Palace, but the German couldn’t find a clinical cutting-edge as Hodgson’s side laboured in vain.

Christian Benteke (£6.0m) also fired a number of blanks with the Belgian appearing to be still short of confidence and unlikely to shoulder responsibility for Palace’s goals this season. 

Richarlison and Everton’s attacking players are in need of some help, which Kean should bring them

It was a similar story for Everton who began the match without new signing Moise Keane (£7.0m) in the starting line-up, the striker having not been involved in any of the Toffees’ pre-season matches.

After arriving as a 69th-minute substitute for Dominic Calvert Lewin (£6.0m), he showed glimpses of quality that suggested the hype surrounding his switch from Juventus could be justified.

The Italian should play an important role for the Toffees this season but may need time to find his feet, as well as earning the trust of Fantasy managers with more proven options such as Sigurdsson and Richarlison (£8.0m) currently available.

Pickford’s defensive performance underlined his value to Fantasy managers with a first clean sheet of the season. The defensive quartet of Lucas Digne (£6.0m), Yerry Mina (£5.5m) Seamus Coleman (£5.5m) and Keane shielded the England international from Palace’s efforts in the second half and will have inspired confidence in their Fantasy owners ahead of Watford’s trip to Goodison Park in Gameweek 2. 

Everton could have some central midfield issues after Gomes (right) went off injured and Schneiderlin was shown a red card

However, an injury to Andre Gomes (£5.5m) is an area of potential concern for Everton’s central midfield options. He was replaced by new signing Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£5.0m) in the 45th minute.

Silva confirmed that the 26-year-old is set to be assessed in the coming days and admitted that Everton suffered when he had to come off.

“The moment the game changed was the injury to André Gomes. We hope it’s not serious. When I changed it with Jean-Philippe Gbamin he had some problems, which is normal he needs to adapt, and when you sign new players, young players they need time to adapt and it was one of the keys for us because we started losing easy balls during that second-half.” – Marco Silva

Furthermore, Everton are already down one option in central midfield after Morgan Schneiderlin‘s (£4.5m) red card in the second half. He was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 76th minute and will miss that meeting with Watford next weekend.

“I didn’t see the first [booking]. But the referee gave the second. For me it was not, but Morgan should not react like he did, if you are playing with a yellow card, you have a risk.” – Marco Silva

    Brighton aren't gonna change a team that won 3-0 away are they? Think Trossard out is likely to have to be my first move.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Also, is it no longer possible to monitor rivals' transfer activity through moves made and budget remaining?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Correct

      2. Legomané

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Would appear so.

        McGinn looks a very tempting swap, even as a Lucas owner

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          I'm annoyed I didn't stick with my McGinn punt so gonna correct that immediately.

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            Probably only call I got right on here besides Heaton/Pope and late conversion to Mings best Villa defence option for nailed(don't own)

    2. SpiritRising
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Well they didn't score until they made some subs so surely a chance the goal scorers start. Especially one they've paid 20m for.

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        I have read that potter loves to tinker and may switch formation with trossard featuring home games and gros away games.

        Ideally want to save ft.

        But trossaed to mcginn tempting and sounds sensible

      2. Karhumies
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        I might need to sell Murray ASAP. Glad I saved 0.5m in the bank just in case. Guess I am going for Pukki because Wilson's matches are horrible, and because I already have Jota and Wilson (so no King for me).

        1. Ambrosiana Inter
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          Wilson matches are horrible?

          1. Karhumies
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            Sorry, meant 6.5 Barnes matches are horrible, which leaves Pukki and King as 6.5 candidates (I have Jota already) and because I have Wilson already, I don't want King. So Pukki.

      How can you even consider martial and barkley lol. They haven’t even played, what if one is sent off or benched

      1. Mambino
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Martial played every pre-season game

        1. Mambino
          • 6 Years

          sorry - you mean yet this weekend!

      2. Business Cat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        This

        Not only was a one week punt a terrible idea, compounding it with an early transfer and a leap into the unknown is worse.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Losing Moura already? Hard to answer this question when 50% of the options haven't played yet.

    3. Brian Boitano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      At least wait until later this evening - martial could score a hat trick, Barkley could be benched - who knows.

      1. Arctic_Orangutans

          Indeed

    6. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 8 days ago

      Having Adams for GW2 will be awkward. Double Liverpool defence 🙁

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 8 days ago

        As proved on Friday night they can still get points even if they lose their CS.

    7. GetupStandup
        11 months, 8 days ago

        Perez and Jimenez today, can I get at least 15 points?

        1. DAZZ
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          Of course. 1 goal each wouldn’t be far off

          Is kane likely to force his way into our teams from gw3?

          Toon are home and then a nice run.

          Thanks

          1. Mambino

            • 5 Years

            Plan was to get Son in.

            1. Hairy Potter
              • 5 Years
              11 months, 8 days ago

              Actually that might be a better plan than I had.

            2. Roten Teufel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              11 months, 8 days ago

              That's my thinking. Did Trossard > McGinn last night which leaves me exact cash for Moura > Son next week.

          3. Hairy Potter
            • 5 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            I plan on having him.

          4. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            Yes - I started with Auba with the plan to switch in GW3

          5. Brian Boitano
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            My route is to downgrade Fraser and upgrade Wilson but then would leave me without Bournemouth. Also I’m kursed when it komes to Kane so you really don’t want me owing him.

            1. Hairy Potter
              • 5 Years
              11 months, 8 days ago

              Similar to my original plan of downgrading Moura and upgrading Wilson. Another option might be Moura to Son and Wilson to a 6.0 forward.

            2. Flynny
              • 5 Years
              11 months, 8 days ago

              Yeah my route would be Fraser and Wilson to dendonk and kane - 4

              I'd have to play dendonk gw3 v Burnley which may not be too bad.

          6. Lazaretti
            • 2 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            What I have read Spurs were not really good same with Kane. For me it is Sterling vs Kane atm. I Have Kane would like to get Sterling.

          7. It’s gonna Ben Mee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            I think Auba might cover him

          8. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            Not mine. Rather have sterling and Salah.

        3. camarozz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 8 days ago

          67 with Perez/Barkley/Auba to go..

          Decent return frm them and thats not a bad team score without Sterling is it??

          1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 8 days ago

            You could be looking at 80 points, which is a cracking return in the first GW. Raheem won't score a hat trick every week either. I hope!

                  10k is the first 10,000 FPL IDs in GWK1 because there isn't a top10k yet.

                  Top 10k is first 10,000 ID’s at this stage. The true value is actually around 100

                It's a great score. Similar position here. 66 with Auba, Perez and two autosubs to come in.

                A 2pt-er (c) or a surprise benching in the near future, and the Sterling smugness will quickly subside...he's not scoring a hattrick each week

                        A 30-goal season isn't in his grasp.

                        Moderate improvement to 20-goals up from 17 maybe

                            I'd like him, can't afford him.

                            Sticking with Salah, Kane, Auba, KDB.

                            There's a chance I'll have outscored many Sterling teams by the week's end.

                            There's more than one way to play the game

                Man City always thump West Ham and Sterling was nailed to score at least one. For me he was number one on team sheet and it was crazy to not have him.

              What is the chance Mahrez will play most games this season?

              a. Wilson -> Pukki
              b. Frase -> Martial
              c. Wilson + Fraser -> Pukki + Mahrez (-4 point hit)

              Heaton

              Salah, Sterling, Fraser, Robinson
              Wilson, Vardy, Greenwood

                Bilva has a big say in this, he’s better and works harder for the team I think he’ll play vs spurs

                  I know that is a risk - however now he is in the team and hence he has to stay there for some time 🙂

                  Doesn't start, I think he'll come on as sub.

                  OGS has said he'll be involved, they've not got much attacking-wise on the bench (Sanchez, Mata)

                Pukki I think

                1. ragsyboys
                  • 5 Years
                  11 months, 8 days ago

                  Is he on penalties ?

                  1. fc_skrald

                    • 5 Years
                    11 months, 8 days ago

                    According to the Set Pieces section Norwich will take penalties in the following order:

                    Vrancic, Pukki, McLean, Stiepermann

                    1. ragsyboys
                      • 5 Years
                      11 months, 8 days ago

                      Vrancic didn't play .. so must be pukki who takes then

                        • 7 Years
                        11 months, 8 days ago

                        Being on penalties for Norwich might not be a good thing. A few different players took them, but our record was 1 out of 6 scored

                    Concern is Everton may not create enough chances for Kean to convert. He is in my team but even if he does nail down first striker role he may not return much.

                  Haha exactly, it's only the 1st week and 1st game. Which promising players shall we jump on after GW2?

              As season long investments, which 2 can be dropped?

              Mane, KDB, Jiminez, Jesus, Aguero, Auba

              current fist one out would be Jesus....who else?

                I’d be worried for kuns minutes this season with him getting older and Jesus looking sharp

                Jesus and Aguero probably, they'll take minutes/points off each other.

                Jesus looking like he'll be more involved this season

                    Thanks, I'll probably run without Kun & Mane for the moment (others bar Jiminez have went up) - I can then decide next Saturday

                click on the dog, change player drop-down to 50, then hit "target" (shows negatives on order) hit again for positives. It's mainly Allison owners getting Ederson ATM

                *Leicester, Wolves I see goals as they both have good attacks. I still don't trust Arsenal defence so can see Newcastle scoring. Utd, Chelsea I just don't know so I'm sitting on the fence.

                  That would be a huge result for Newcastle, I do agree on the Arsenal defence, Haven't seen this Joelinton play live so if he's as good as people say you could be on to something.

                did anyone watch Watford game yesterday?
                How did Deeney and Kiko performed? Worth keeping for eve & WHU and then re-asses depending on performance?

                  Kiko looked good from an FPL point of view. Gray missed a sitter from a Kiko assist and he bombed forward quite a bit. Deeney was poor

                Who did the Trossard owners end up with off the bench? I fluked Montoya! Although I don't think the subs showing 0 points still. I preferred seeing what they scored.

                  Greenwood first and then Dendocker or Rico 2 pointer if first two are no shows.

                        Apparently there were fitness concerns. Ben Dinnery had said that Taylor played in a u23 game on Tuesday which indicated he wasn't at the required fitness levels.

                        Pieters ahead of him it seems.

                        Depends on rotation options. No 4.5 is good enough to play every week

                          Cheers fellas. I may bite the bullet and go for pieters, bit knee jerk though. Do fancy burnley defence without Pope.

                          Other option is taylor > dunk whos nailed for brighton

                            Oh no, definitely don't get Pieters. Dunk is a good option

                      Pope > Adrian if no more issues?

                        Keep Pope.

                          I dont have another keeper and the next 3 fixtures dont look good... would also double liv def which is standard

                            Gotcha, go for it in that case.

                        A decent move, but probably a bit too short term imo

                        Pope a season keeper, Adrian will force you into a transfer down the line. Save

                      Fraser to McGinn to enable Bilva to Sterling (-4)?

                          11 months, 8 days ago

                          Sterling already 54% on way to price rise, won't be able to afford it next week.

                          Price changes will probably dent that

                        Sterling's a season keeper -4 won't be much when you look back at it.

                          Almost want Vardy to flop to make easy decision

                        Bilva should play next game, surely. More solid than Mahrez in tougher fixtures.

                            11 months, 8 days ago

                            Is expect him to get game time and Mahrez to get bench time but it Mahrez gets easy fixtures then B Silva not with having..

                        Whats the plans Trossard owners?

                        Stick or twist?

                        Can’t see him starting Gw2 after a 3-0 away in..

                        McGinn/Robinson potential replacements also Barkley auditioning today

                          All replacements looking dull. Maybe, waiting for another week could be good

                          Could start actually.

                          I'm selling, either for McGinn, Buendía or Barkley/Mount.

                          Probably shipping

                          Don't need 6m not nailed on...bench is too weak to be supporting that

                          McGinn or Barkley coming in for me. Can't see Trossard starting next GW after their win.

                          1. JurgenRodgers

                            Yeah I agree, not sure I want a £6m Mid not nailed this early in the season..

                            Like the look of all action McGinn + £0.5

                            Seen suggestiond he is more likely to start home games.

                            Not sure my bench will sustain a no show.

                            McGinn with his fixtures and the 0.5m saving is where I'm thinking....but ideally want to save

                          I think I’ll bring Auba in for Kane for next week.

                          Need to see how Barkley and Perez play today to see if they warrant a transfer or pass the eye test. Otherwise, team looks set and I feel I have the luxury to tweak here and there.
