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

    Fraser owners, what are your thoughts after GW1?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
        4 months, 3 days ago

        Who to replace him with after GW2.

        1. Jimmy Boy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          If Martial performs today it'll be difficult not to make that my first transfer

          1. Would Ed Woodward
              4 months, 3 days ago

              Yeah, Martial was always my plan, Pulisic an option too if he looks good, they have great fixtures 3 and 4 iirc.

        2. Daniel - KTBFFH
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Give him 1 more week and then reassess

        3. Rashers
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Will give him next week and see then. Interested in how Perez does today

        4. Manani
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          1 more week, then either him or wilson is getting the boot

          1. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            One more week and save FT.

            If he and Bournemouth still look cack and Trossard doesn’t start again will look to get Son or Eriksen instead with the 2 frees in GW3.

        5. Balls of Steel
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 3 days ago

          Bournemouth were a bit stuck for ideas when it came to attack from what I watched of the game, a lot of recycling the ball back into midfield when they got forward. Maybe it was because of the way a Sheffield United defence set up but if they can't create at home against a promoted side then I can't see a repeat of last season for them, no offense to SU. I gambled on a double up of Fraser and King and already regretting it from what I saw yesterday. I think there are lots of good options in the mid-priced mids such as Martial, Pulisic, Barkley, Perez, Zaha, Anderson. Looking forward to today's games to see how remaining teams perform.

          1. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 months, 3 days ago

            Someone said yesterday that it may have been due to Brooks being missing.

            There may be some truth to that.

            Or it may just have been one of those off performances you get at the start of a season.

            Who knows for sure at this point of the new season?

            1. Balls of Steel
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 3 days ago

              I had the same thought while watching the game with a Bournemouth side without the creativity of Brooks and a little bit of extra pace, Rico being out on that left wing doesn't inspire me!

            2. benbro
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 months, 3 days ago

              I think Su were really at it. Made Bmouth work quite hard and did enough to limit there chances. I suspect that if you go into a game full of confidence at home to a newly Promoted side and struggle to score early to settle nerves they start to build.

              All to say it’s far too early to read anything into the result.

              I also wonder how much influence having their 4th choice keeper playing had.

            Don’t worry you’ve missed his one game for the season. When Laca and Pepe back he’s a cup player

            Someone in one of my leagues who's notoriously bad, almost always finishes bottom by a distance, has an SSK team with a bench of Donck/Greenwood/Lundstram. Zero chance he somehow stumbled on that himself, right?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Shame on him for looking up resources to get better instead of just donating his money.

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                  4 months, 3 days ago

                  lol, that's not my money league anyway, it's just interesting to see.

                    Being "good" at this game is mainly just time investment. Bad players are bad because they dont care, not because they are stupid. Maybe he started taking it seriously.

                      He played there in preseason and scored. Declared he feels like a striker so likes to get in the box. No risk of him tracking back.

                this Arsenal team looks like a pre season tour team

                      Newcastle apparently breached ffp with their singing of Carrol. Due to be hit with a transfer embargo for two season until they bring their thrivilious spending under control

                    I reckon we will see mahrez back to his best this season. 10+ goals, 10+ assists. Anyone tempting to bring him in, the rotation worry’s people but I reckon he gonna be starting most in that form

                      Na, Bernardo is better. Mahrez would be lucky to start more than 50% of games.

                      That's the best possible lineup currently.
                      Nowhere close to the first XI though.

                        Willock has been really good. Just need to keep the ball away from Micky.

                      You can't simultaneously moan that young English players dont get a chance in the PL, then when a manager selects them you slate the line up. Willock and Nelson have earned their start in preseason.

                      What would it take for you to play you wildcard today?
                      I'm thinking a combination of:
                      - Jota/Jiminez/Doherty linking up again
                      - Vardy having a party or a Tielemans brace
                      - Martial starting in a false 9 and banging a Harry
                      - Barkley gets a couple of pens and max bonus

                        If all happened plus the pool defence debacle I'd be a little bit concerned/interested

                          If Martial scores a couple then I'm bringing him in, the bandwagon will be crazy.

                            Fraser to Martial would solve that issue.

                              Cos they were playing Brighton at home and hes on penalties.

                              I must admit I was touting Deeney as 6.5 option all season. Feel very lucky I didnt go with him in the end. He can score a penalty any day though.

                            In FPL draft you should consider only nailed options, like Ederson/Laporte

                            In FPL he could be gold later in the season if he can nail his spot
