Van Aanholt delivers again as Palace record another clean sheet

BRIGHTON 0-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

BHACRY scout notes
Palace players celebrate Jordan Ayew’s second-half goal
  • Goals: None | Jordan Ayew (£5.1m)
  • Assists: None | Christian Benteke (£5.7m)
  • Bonus Points: Vicente Guaita (£5.1m) x3, Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m) x2, Ayew x1

Owners of Crystal Palace defenders were the big winners from Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off at the Amex Stadium.

Despite home side Brighton racking up 24 attempts on goal, the Eagles held firm to bank a second consecutive clean sheet.

As alluded to before kick off, Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m) was one of the players to watch in a clash largely devoid of Fantasy interest.

The Dutch defender followed up his 15-point haul in Gameweek 27 with a very respectable eight-point score.

Van Aanholt trailed only Vicente Guaita (£5.1m) in the Bonus Points System, as the goalkeeper’s eight saves propelled him to an 11-point score.

Jordan Ayew‘s (£5.1m) second-half strike – the forward’s only shot of the match – was only enough for a single bonus point. Despite an excellent reverse pass to set Ayew up, Christian Benteke (£5.7m) is a long way from FPL consideration.

At the other end of the pitch, Palace defenders are back on the radar. Having gone without a clean sheet for 10 Gameweeks, since a 0-0 stalemate away to Watford in Gameweek 16, assets such as van Aanholt and Guaita may pick up owners ahead of a relatively kind four-game run (which could become three if Liverpool advance to the FA Cup sixth round).

The Eagles are also set for key defensive reinforcements, with Roy Hodgson explaining post-match:

“Now, we’re getting players back from injury. James Tomkins (£5.0m) isn’t that far away, Mamadou Sakho (£5.0m) is back in training and available and Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m) is back in training and available. We knew we’d have to dig in and fight plenty of battles out there. We had to make certain we got our defending right. We won our challenges, the back four was very solid and we knew the chances would come our way.” – Roy Hodgson

Guaita’s eight saves tell the story of Brighton’s problems in attack, with the Palace stopper not overly tested by any of the Seagulls’ efforts on target.

Neal Maupay (£5.8m) was the guiltiest party in this regard, with the Frenchman racking up half of Brighton’s eight shots on target while never really looking like scoring.

The best of Maupay’s chances came early in the second half when a tangle between substitute Jairo Riedewald (£4.5m) and the heavily-involved Aaron Mooy (£4.8m) saw the striker released behind the Palace back-line.

The ball sat up beautifully but Maupay hammered his volley directly at Guaita’s chest, in a moment that summed up the Seagulls’ struggles in front of goal.

Solly March (£4.6m) wasted the home team’s other stand-out opportunity of the tie, firing into the side netting from close range after an excellent crossfield pass from Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) in the 35th minute.

On the defeat, Graham Potter admitted:

“It’s a sore one for us. I thought we, apart from the scorline, did a lot well in the game, had chances, didn’t take them and of course if you don’t… They didn’t do too much to get their goal. We were the better team up to that point. That’s football, you have to put the ball in the net. We created stuff, we tried, had shots, had chances, they didn’t have too much. I feel for the boys. We have to dust oursevles down. There’s enough quality there. We showed enough to say that we can move forward, that’s what we’ve got to do. It’s not a nice feeling when you lose a game. We didnt deserve to lose the game. We just need to focus on the positives, what we’ve done well. You can’t feel sorry for yourself. Sometimes you need a bit of luck – we didn’t get too much of that today. We have to keep working to turn those little margins in our favour. We know every game in this league is tough for us. Today there was a lot of effort and a lot of quality. I liked the performance, how we played. Over the course of the game we were quite good.” – Graham Potter

Owners of Wilfried Zaha (£6.8m) endured another blank in Gameweek 28 and may want to avoid the Match of the Day highlights. An injury-time break saw Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) eventually bundle the ball into Zaha’s path.

The winger, who opted to use the outside of his right foot, smashed the post with Mat Ryan (£4.8m) way off his line. The Australian keeper will not have been happy with his attempt to keep out Ayew’s goal, either.

Hodgson’s assessment of the fiery M23 derby clash was slightly different to Potter’s, with the Palace boss reckoning:

“It was a really good performance from the team, a battling performance. The pitch was heavy but I thought we kept in the game well and got our reward in the end. We should have more than one today and we missed two chances at the end but that is what happens when a team is losing, they send players forward. We had chances at the end, we had consistent moments towards the end of the game.” – Roy Hodgson

The result at the Amex means Brighton are looking nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone, while Palace could secure safety with several games to spare. On that note, Hodgson added:

“You can never say never, it’s good to get back-to-back wins and we’ve got two important games coming up. If they go well, we can kiss relegation goodbye. We’ve got players coming back from injury so suddenly my squad looks different, whereas earlier in the season we needed all hands in deck.”

Brighton XI (4-2-3-1): Ryan; Burn, Dunk, Webster, Montoya (Jahanbaksh 77′); Propper, Bissouma (Alzate 81′); March (Murray 65′), Trossard, Mooy; Maupay.

Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Guaita; Van Aanholt, Cahill, Dann, Ward; McArthur, Kouyaté, McCarthy (Riedewald HT); Zaha, Benteke (Tosun 86′), Ayew.

    Do you think too late now for Arsenal v City being rearranged for week 29 - 11 March seemed to be suitable date for both so surprising no announcements?

        Because tonight was his testimonial match, his last appearance for lfc

          ha nice, God knows why Klopp keeps him around

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Because he was in the starting lineup

    3. inactive
      • 11 Years

      Cos he's absolutely rubbish

      Stopped Liverpool from going unbeaten last season with his performance at City and has done the same today

        Hey, he was the world's best defender not so long ago.

        Virgil could be at this level in a year or two.

        1. inactive
          • 11 Years

          😆

          Can't wait till he's gone, I don't despise many players but he is one. Arrogance of Ibra, ability of Phil Jones

            His showing v kane at wembley will always be a highlight.

            Quickly back on track next game you reckon? Feels like a defeat has been due for a while.

            1. inactive
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 6 months ago

              The worst performance from any CB in the last decade, and he didn't even play the full game!

              Oh yes, we'll bounce back fine. Atleti is our biggest game of the season, retaining CL to go with PL would be monumental

                A tough task to break them down.

                Trippier being back might help you.

                • 5 Years
                1 year, 6 months ago

                Any idea why Klopp has kept Lovren and starts him with Matip on bench? Everyone can see he's not good enough except Klopp? Surely not....

                1. inactive
                  • 11 Years
                  1 year, 6 months ago

                  Baffling and has cost us invincibility. I'd be fuming if I was Matip

                    Pretty harsh to pin it all on lovren. The whole team were abject today

          I would change Williams, Greenwood and maybe Vardy before Pereira. Saving looks the best

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 6 months ago

            Thanks, trouble is with 0ITB I can't do much with Greenwood / Williams. With Vardy back next week no way I'm selling for now.
            Good run of fixtures for them too

                No worries, keeping for the foreseeable future with the fixtures anyway.

    On liveFPL is this 9.16 with subs calculated or without?

    9.16 OUT OF 12.0

    AVERAGE PLAYERS PLAYED

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years

      I think the subs come in after the last game of the week.

    2. Ragabolly

    Kelly to alonso for me i think, leaves:

    Pope
    VVD TAA Alonso
    Salah Grealish Traore KDB
    Ings Jimenez Aubameyang (c)

    Cantwell, lascelles, holgate.

    Looking good?

    28pts with Holgate left, my arrow won't stay green will it?

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 6 months ago

      It could, if Wolves/Utd do similarly to the highly owned teams that already played.

  17. Bagheri Arce
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 6 months ago

    How good are Alonso's stats btw!?

    9 starts, 4 goals, 3 assists, 4 clean sheets.

    Good fixtures, anyone tempted?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Yes, was SO close to getting him last night before deadline, but jumped on Pereira instead because of fixtures

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Don't have the dosh for him, and there's a lot of budget defs doing well.

    3. beric
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Yep

  18. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    Always said even if Alonso is a useless defender he should play left mid or even left forward.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Should have been Hazard's replacement from the off

    2. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      He returns better than Pulisic, CHO, Pedro, Barkley, Mount etc.

      Lampard needs to think outside the box. Stop treating him like a left-back / left wing-back and think of him as left-sided forward.

      Good at crossing, has a good shot on him, takes good corners and free-kicks and good in the air.

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Lampard's quotes though are not encouraging:

        Frank Lampard on Marcos Alonso: "I'm very happy for [him]. He has had a big week but I don't want my left-back top of the scoring charts.

        "I want our attackers scoring goals and they haven't."

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          Alonso upfront next game it is then!

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Agreed, all valid points.

        I also like how he offers the natural left sided winger option, unlike the common cutting in types these days.

    Seeing a lot of Auba in rmt's.
    Are people moving on a FT early or did you have already?

    1. beric
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Benched him this week

    2. Bobby Digital

      Benched him this week.

      1. beric

        Jinx

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Fair play. I'm probably doing Vardy to Auba - but after the luck this week I'll have to ignore the price rise

  20. Cilly Bonnolly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Guy in my minileague scored 53 points with eight players. 😀

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Wow. Link? Actually I don't want to look

      1. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Hahaha. He’s got triple Watford and has Sarr, Fernandez and Soyuncu coming off his bench with 29 points!

  21. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    Wonder if @Rainer will stick with his claim if TAA scored less than 16 then he's outing him for Alonso

  22. Kun Tozser
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    Vardy > Auba
    Perez > Sarr

    ?

    1. beric
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      I think sarr has tougher fixtures than it seems, only see returns in LEI and SOU, doubt watford will get anything away to palace and burnley

      1. beric
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        That said, i might sell traore for him if he doesnt start tomorrow

    I'm utterly insane and played my free hit this week, it went rather well, however the team I return to is still ridiculous. I need help prepping for gw 31 etc. I have 1 ft

    Pope button

        • 1 Year

        Or at least wait until the FA cup results are known. By Thursday night you'll know who is blanking in 31.

  24. yakirh
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    Exact cash to do
    Vardy & Martial to Auba & Grealish

    Do it now, or wait and settle on Sarr/Mount/Barnes ?

    1. FFSbet.com
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      FH 31 ?

      1. yakirh
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Not sure yet
        Grealish is playing in 31

        1. FFSbet.com
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          If WBA beat Newcastle

  25. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Antonio and Bowen looked really decent today. Might be options

    1. beric
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Id like to own bowen

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Slightly overpriced IMO and bad fixtures

  26. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    Would this squad be worth bench boost in 29? Not sure waiting for DGW will be better. Or get Aubameyang and don’t bench boost ( but lose KDB)?

    A Aubameyang Sarr (Mooy) and night bench boost
    B Jota De Bruyne Sarr and bench boost

    Henderson
    TAA Boly Stevens
    Salah Mané KDB Barnes Sarr
    Jiménez Jota

    Pope DCL Stephens Fernández

  27. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Anyone getting Alonso? 4G3A in limited minutes and now seemingly nailed at LWB with gorgeous fixtures. Lovely diff and a set and forget until the end of the season.

    1. Crystal Alice

      o/

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Can't afford with Auba Vardy Jimenez Salah KDB TAA

  28. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    McCarthy
    TAA / VVD / Pereira / Stevens
    Salah / KDB / Barnes
    Jimenez / Ings / DCL

    Button // Perez / Traore / Rico

    I can do the following:
    A) Ings > Aubameyang (for free)
    B) VVD/Perez > 4.4m/Mané (-4)

    Are there other players I should be looking at?

    1. NoName
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      A

  29. Marmalade Forest
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    I’m not looking for guesses or conjecture here, I think I know the answer, but I’m not sure.

    Can someone win a penalty after a handball/offside that wasn’t spotted?

    Goals after a handball/offside are ruled out now, but if a penalty is won what happens?

    I know corners aren’t ruled out/checked/corrected, but are penalties?

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Offside and handballs are be checked in the lead up to a penalty yes, so can easily be overturned

      1. Marmalade Forest
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        Cheers. Not what I was expecting.

  30. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 6 months ago

    How has Pope got 49 points since I sold him with those fixtures?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      Quality keeper.

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        100% luck

        1. CMJC
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 6 months ago

          100% bitter?

    2. Mortal.Swinbat
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      100% luck, especially those 2 disallowed goals vs Bournemouth

      1. CMJC
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 months ago

        That’s one 100% lucky clean sheet accounted for then...

    3. TB303
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      He’s a fantastic keeper that’s why

    4. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 months ago

      he stopped the ball going in the goal hole

    5. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I sold him at the same time, took a hit to get him back in this week and it already paid off
