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

      One player everyone has and is cheap, the other takes up over 10% if your budget and is a useful differential in the premium category. We need him to get a Hattie so watch it with me

    Pepe and Laca? Do you expect them to start?

    1. Dr Van Nostrand
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Don't think so

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Ozil out means Pepe has a chance

  5. Hakim Ziyech
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 4 days ago

    How many people are in the party?!

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Sort of I got a cheap ticket for 6.5m

      1. zotter
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Lol

  6. OneMan
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    With Sane out could Mahrez be a good option ?

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Not really. Big time rotation ... foden will play a lot more. Dilva still fairly regular and Bilva pressing for the right wing spot. Only sterling and Kdb nailed enough to consider

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        I disagree with Foden or D. Silva being a threat, they play midfield not right winger. Bilva is the only real threat and they will probably be rotated with Mahrez but Bilva is likely to get some minutes in the midfield as well so I’d say Mahrez is likely to play more than 50% of the minutes throughout the season with how things stand right now.

  7. Ginkapo FPL
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Pepe Martial Chilwell and Perez for me today with Shaw on my bench.

    Gonna be a good day.

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      1 9 2 5 I think.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Perez will score

  8. Rik Waller
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Who's looking like the best 4.5 def?

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      On Friday I thought Dunk and Diop, but they had contrasting days yesterday! Both sat on my bench unused.

    2. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I think Dunk/Montoya are decent options (Montoya owner)
      I have Cathcart which I want to sell at some point

  9. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Really punished by not having Sterling. Tried going Salah, Auba, KdB and Siggy rather than SSK and it couldn’t have gone much worse.

    Sterling does look essential with Sané out. Not sure why I didn’t give that point more importance.

    Think I’m going to stick rather than go an extra -4 behind, and hope KdB scores more points at home. Then get Sterling in with a mini WC. Rest of my team is performing well.

    1. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I started without him and with KDB too. Rest of my team did well though.

      I think Sterling has to come in after Sours game

    2. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      It's okay mate. You got 37 more weeks to recover. There will be days when you have a smile and I'll be punnished

    3. Rik Waller
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      If it weren't for price changes I'd be happy to wait.
      But those little 0.1 changes really messes with it in the early stages.
      Think I'm just gonna take the hit. Keep KDB though

    4. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Salah and Sterling are essential regardless of who is out and what fixtures are like. I made the mistakes of moving them out at some points in last season and learned my lesson.

      For me FPL is a game with 13 players (including bench) and budget of 75.5m.

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        I dont see why Salah is essential. Pretty crap value

  10. BENOIT
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Those that took a punt on Origi, are you keeping?

    1. Billybigspuds
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      For 1 more week. Probably go after that when worked out options

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Considering Andy Carrol

  11. Trophé Mourinho
      11 months, 4 days ago

      come on no Perez will be great 🙂

      1. La Roja
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Behave

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Would mean Dunk off the bench for me.

    • Artemis Titans
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Pope ( Button )
      AWB, VVD, Digne (Rico, Hanley)
      Salah(c), KDB, Eriksen, Perez, Siggy
      Origi, Vardy (Greenwood)
      I already swapped King for Origi. 1m itb. Plan was to wait until gw3 and do Siggy & Eriksen to Son & Pogba depending on their performances week 1&2. Or Sterling & 6m mid.
      I Was resisting transfer, but didn't want Adrian & think Origi will play some part most weeks. Frees up the 1mil I need to adjust later.
      Comments welcomed and greatly appreciated. GL today.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        I think next game Origi will be on the bench with Mane starting

      2. Taking the Mkhitaryan
        • 3 Years

        Clownery.
        Origi will be on the bench and you will be fielding 10

    • Hakim Ziyech

      Perez Hat trick Vardy Hat trick Pogba Hat trick... isn't too much to ask for

      1. Openboxman

        Martial, perez & auba hatricks please.

      2. Godfrey

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year

          + wan Bissaka hat trick

    • Baked baines
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      So having all 3 high owned premium players was very crucial indeed.
      (Salah, Kane & Sterling)
      Just Aubameyang left but not as highly owned.

      Think with Salah, Kane and Sterling these are gonna be in your team until blank GW’s, injured.
      Think it’s Sacrifice the team to fit these 3 in!

      1. Godfrey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Not sure about Kane. Sterling and Salah are a must but don't have the same feeling with Kane. Liverpool and City can smash teams while Tottenham struggled a lot versus a promoted team. Wait and see for Kane.

        1. La Roja
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Wait and see?

          He was average yesterday with no Alli, Son and Eriksen until 65th min

          Yet he came up with 2 goals

          I’m pleased people think like you 🙂

            • 2 Years

            The problem is that we cannot have them all. Even Salah could be a question mark.

      2. Taking the Mkhitaryan
        • 3 Years

        Explain "crucial"

        Incorrect spelling for Jota there

          I don't get the love for Jota. was he very explosive towards the end of last season ? As Jimenez was class all season.

      They say it's very important to get a good start in FPL.

      What will be considered a good score this week for those who are aiming for high ranking at the end of the season?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        85

      2. Godfrey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        I think around 90?

      3. FlyingWithoutIngs
        • 2 Years

        This is a high scoring week I’m currently on 83 with jota to play and yet I’m not high in most of my mini leagues besides a couple small ones. I saw that score and was impressed until I saw my OR. I’d say anything 80 to 90+ though is still a good score this week

        1. GreenPL
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Would be interesting to know what highest average ever was. We'll probably be close to it this GW.

        85. Would you as a wolves man rate Jota or Jimenez as the best asset this season ?

        1. Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Yes. I predict Jimenez and Jota will soon become the top two owned strikers in the FPL. I'm glad I have them now before their price rockets.

      5. Would Ed Woodward

        Thought I'd had a fairly decent start until seeing a lot of the scores on here.

      Unexpected having Jota off the bench today. Feels good. Grateful to Pep for keeping Bilva off the pitch on his birthday. 1 pointer would've hurt

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        What's your plan for Bilva?

        1. Crystal Alice
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Keeping for now, avoiding kneejerks which cost me in previous sessions. More pressing concern is Deulofeu

          1. Crystal Alice
            • 1 Year
            11 months, 4 days ago

            *seasons

            • 4 Years
            11 months, 4 days ago

            I'm considering taking an early hit to ditch himself and a Mr. Kane for Sterling and 7m striker

    • Kungfueric
        11 months, 4 days ago

        After watching the Bournemouth game yesterday I'm already considering ditching Wilson for Jiminez. Only question is do I hold off until after the next gameweek?

        1. OneMan
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Wilson got an assist ?

          1. Kungfueric
              11 months, 4 days ago

              He did but in reality it was a scuffed shot that rebounded to the scorer. He seemed very isolated for the most part and the assist was Was just the all round tame attacking display by Bournemouth that concerned me. You are a voice of reason though maybe I'm being rash.

              1. Kungfueric
                  11 months, 4 days ago

                  Wow that was terribly typed. You get the jist though

                  • 3 Years
                  11 months, 4 days ago

                  I didn't see the game as was working. Honestly I'm considering replacing wilson and Fraser with kane and grob or another 6.5m mid. So I can't complain much. I just really want Kane, think he will be great this season back at WHL.

                Interesting. I have to say he seemed the best villa defender despite all those guilbert hypers in the same way Dunk was for BHA.
