Scout Notes

Palace defence impresses again but tricky upcoming fixtures dent FPL appeal

Bournemouth 0-2 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m), Jordan Ayew (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m), Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m)
  • Bonus: van Aanholt x3, Milivojevic x2, Joel Ward (£4.3m), Gary Cahill (£4.4m) x1

Crystal Palace eased to victory over a Bournemouth side that produced a performance as poor as might be expected from a side dropping into the bottom three of the Premier League table.

Goals from Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m) and Jordan Ayew (£5.2m) were more than enough to secure the three points for Roy Hodgson’s men.

It also meant a fourth straight win for Palace – all of them including clean sheets – which would usually be enough to persuade plenty of Fantasy managers to tap into their assets.

But the Eagles’ schedule is not the kindest over the rest of the season, with Liverpool, Chelsea, Wolves, Spurs and Manchester United still to come as they seek a European place to crown a fine campaign.

Those sides are likely to provide a far tougher test than Bournemouth did yesterday.

The Cherries took more than an hour to manage their first – and it turned out only – attempt on target when a Nathan Ake (£4.8m) header brought a routine save from Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita (£5.0m).

Not that Palace were much more progressive themselves. Their two shots on target led to the goals as the typically compact and disciplined visiting side negated a toothless Bournemouth devoid of both confidence and verve.

All of that led to a match best described as ‘one for the purists’ and which, as a contest, was over pretty much as soon as Palace scored their second goal.

That came from a fine move involving Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m), who slipped the ball to an advancing Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) in the opposition area, with the defender’s cutback picking out Ayew to side-foot home with calm authority.

Zaha was also heavily involved in the opening goal as he earned a free-kick from which Milivojevic curled home an exquisite 25-yard finish.

The effort earned the Serbian midfielder two bonus points, but it was van Aanholt who brought in the maximum award and a second double-digit haul in four Gameweeks.

The Holland international has now scored 41 points for his 5.4% Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership over that time frame – that’s 18 more than the entire Bournemouth rearguard, including keeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m), have managed as a group.

Van Aanholt’s numbers have been boosted by returns at both ends of the pitch, although yesterday’s assist was his first of the season.

That his pass was well finished by Ayew was no surprise. The striker has now scored in three straight Gameweeks and produced an assist in the match before that – the sort of fine form at such a low price that might tempt Fantasy managers to invest despite Palace’s tricky schedule.

It certainly prompted Hodgson to praise his striker in the build-up to the match, but the Eagles boss was more pleased with the team as a whole when he spoke after it.

Hodgson said:

The player fitness was quite good. I was surprised. We only had the three weeks

We took Christian [Benteke] off because of the slight concern that his hamstring might have been tightening a bit. We took Macca [James McArthur] and Luka [Milivojevic] off because they were tiring a bit. But if I needed to keep them on, I could have kept all three of them on.

Wilf [Zaha] and all of the front players were superb. Yes, they’re flamboyant and have skill and pace but they were very sensible. If we can keep doing that, it might be a nice end to the season.

Zaha could, and probably should, have made the win even more emphatic as Bournemouth chased the game late on, the winger spurning a couple of opportunities on the break.

And Gary Cahill (£4.4m) was another who had a decent chance to seal the deal, volleying an effort over the bar from a corner in one of the few bits of penalty-area action in the second half.

Then again, the centre-half could, on another day, have been handed a red card for a challenge on Josh King (£6.1m) that took the ball cleanly enough, but also took the striker’s leg with the follow-through.

VAR had a look and decided no further action was necessary; the right decision, probably, but one that has gone the other way on more than one occasion in the past.

The tackle led to King’s withdrawal, with Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe later confirming the striker has an injury issue:

I don’t know the extent of the damage, it looks like an ankle injury, so we’ll wait and see.

Other than that, Howe preferred to look forward rather than back; understandable given his side’s mediocre performance:

The table is so tight, the difference is so tight, we could look at back-to-back wins as being the difference for us, but we have to believe that can happen.

With a tough schedule – Wolves away next and both Manchester sides, Spurs and Leicester to come after that – belief might not be enough to save the Cherries.

And their dreadful form – just two wins and no clean sheets in their last 13 matches – means few Fantasy managers will be joining them on the journey regardless.

As for Palace assets, their defenders and the confident (and cheap) Ayew might turn a few heads, but only if their form can better their fixtures.

Bournemouth XI (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; S.Cook, Ake, Smith, Stacey; Lerma, L.Cook; Brooks (Stanislas 61), H.Wilson (Danjuma 45), King (Solanke 49); C.Wilson.

Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Guaita; van Aanholt, Cahill, Dann, Ward; McArthur (Riedewald 89), Milivojevic (McCarthy 65), Kouyate; Ayew, Zaha, Benteke (Townsend 76).

    Really debating dropping son for berjwin (bad spelling)

      He is Dutch isn't he ... berg is mount in Dutch I think and wijn is like in wijnaldum ... that's how I remember the spelling

    2. waldo666

      Hmmmm interesting, doing this would enable me to keep Doherty and get Salah in, food for thought.

    3. Moeda
      • 5 Years

      I've done the same. Enables upgrades and a better balance

    Do we know whether Ritchie is still on penalties after missing one against Southampton before the break? Are there any other known penalty takers in Newcastle lineup?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Not sure, Bentaleb had one of the best pen records in Europe for Schalke but isn't nailed, I'd expect him to take them if he's on the pitch but it's guesswork.

  3. MosF94

    I can just about afford this starting XI:

    Martinez
    TAA, Doherty, Maguire
    Mane, KDB, Son, Fernandes
    Rashford, Jimenez, DCL

    With a very cheap bench of: Martin, Lascelles, Ngakia, Guendouzi

    Is the starting XI strong enough to justify the abject bench?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Ngakia is currently out of contract on June 30th, may as well get Simpson from Bournemouth for 3.9 and pocket the 0.1, might get the odd game too despite being awful.

      1. MosF94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yeah good call - might allow for Guendouzi > Davis too, which could be useful (especially if Guen gets banned)

    2. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      An alternative squad:

      Martinez (Martin)
      TAA, Doherty, Maguire (Aurier, Lascelles)
      KDB, Son, Alli, Fernandes (Davis)
      Vardy, Rashford, Jimenez

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      good on paper but the bench would worry me. Isn't guendouzi being suspended? ngakia contract might be up. You may have 1 player who actually starts. Up to you whether you want to risk it.

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      You could downgrade DCL to Ayew and upgrade the bench

  4. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    How about this WC team?
    Playing 442, rely on WOL def as I cant afford DCL.

    Pope
    TAA, Doh, Maguire, Saiss
    Salah, KDB, Son, Bruno
    Rash, Jim
    (3.9, Lascelles, Hayden, Nketiah)
    Cheers.

    Who is your GW 31+ C atm?

    1. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Son, but it could be any of about 6 players for me tbh! Lots of potentially good captains, but nobody uber-obvious. Think there'll be a good spread this week, which is always fun

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Between Jimmy and Rash, cant decide.

    3. Soto Ayam

      Son

    Those who are wildcarding with FH left - when are you planning on using the FH? Identified a particular gameweek, or saving just in case there's another DGW?

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Saving just in case at the moment and if nothing presents itself then will just use in 38 probably.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Planning to play it last gw, currently on wc, but if things go really wrong I would do it before just to avoid more damage

    3. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Probably 38, when we know who's still got what to play for. Also, City host Norwich, which could be a vengeful bloodbath - could also be tricky to pick who'll start, but if they get to the FA Cup semis, which they should, I think they'll have a midweek game beforehand, so if they rest the big guns for that, might be worth going all in on Sergio and Sterling (again)? Very hypothetical, but sounds like a fun possibility!

    4. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If I don’t FH this GW and WC instead, then will probably FH on 32. I’m not a big believer of FH38, too much uncertainty with starters.

  7. SPFC
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Any price changes predicted?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Rash and Bruno rise and Auba drop according to fpl stats

      1. SPFC
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Thanks

    People with TC chip what are games that you are eyeing for?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Man City GW38 will be popular

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Interesting choice but scared of Pep rotation and their motivation. It even rhymes. Cheers.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Team will probably be leaked vs Norwich. City have some other nice games.

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            City is the main team for TC but will keep close eye on Utd also. Having a big battle in my league and that chip will probably decide all.

  9. Kloppcorn

    Who are people planning on captaining in game-week 31?

    1. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Contemplating DCL as an outside punt, Norwich were terrible on Friday

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Lot of options, listen to your heart.

    3. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Pretty keen on a United option, Bruno or Rash for me I'd say.

    4. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Sterling, KDB or Fernandes for me.

    5. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      So many options to choose from I’ve got: mane, son, Bruno, Rashford, Jiminez, De Bruyne and DCL in my team, was gonna be mane but after the game tonight don’t think mane is the best shout

  10. Francescoli
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Any news on why Salah didn’t get any minutes? Wondering whether I keep him in my WC team or move him to Mane.

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Couldn't get enough training into him or Robbo during the week according to Klopp, Robbo moreso hence why he wasn't in the squad. Check Scout Tweets.

      1. Francescoli
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Ok thanks

      2. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        reckon he plays v CRY ?

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Being he was in the squad today I would say almost certainly.

    2. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      My theory is that Klopp doesn’t want to play him two matches so close together and wants him to play in the match in which they clinch the title.

  11. Pépé Pig
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Would you go for:

    A) Richarlison (short term with Norwich in mind)
    B) Pogba
    C) Martial
    D) Son

    1. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      D

    2. luk46
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      D if money no issue

    3. iL PiStOlErO

      1 month, 23 days ago

      D

  12. luk46
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Pope (Martinez)
    TAA Doherty Maguire (Lascelles Simpson)
    Salah KDB Fernandes Sarr (Guendouzi)
    Jimenez Rashford DCL

    I cant afford Son, should I downgrade Doherty > Saiss and Rashford > Ings/Jota or is it better to go without him?
    Really torn on this one, feel like I need someone from Spurs, but then they got Mourinho and wont score loads probs...

    1. marzo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Doherty out seems crazy right now.

      Dont think Son is worth it right now. Salah is the guy from that team that I would remove for Son but I'd wait a week to see.

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        well ye, could be true... what about a 442 with Fernandez playing and downgrading DCL?

        I dont like too many midfielders in the bracket between 6 and 8m which is why I kinda wanna get Sonny

  13. marzo
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Thoughts on these options for next GW. Team is in ok (not great) shape going into next GW I think.
    Current team-
    Pope (WAT).
    TAA (CRY), Maguire (SHU), Saiss (BOU).
    KDB (che), Fernandes (SHU), Salah (CRY) (c), Barnes (BHA).
    Auba (sou) (vc), Jota (BOU), DCL (nor).
    Stek, Holgate (nor), Dendoncker (BOU), Stephens (ARS).
    1 ft, 3.2m ITB. WC, BB left.

    1. Save the FT. BB later possibly the week after or else after the WC.
    2. Stek-> Allison + just Bench Boost next GW. May not get as good a chance.
    Allison, Holgate, Stephens, Dendoncker for BB.
    WC then in 32 or 33 and just focus on 12/13 starters instead of 15 for BB.
    3. Stephens -> Doherty. Make a move for the guy everybody wants right now.

    1. Essential
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Get Doherty in and be done with it

    2. luk46
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I would try to get Doherty in, team for next gw looks quite solid anyway...

      Also, maybe try to build the wc with a solid bench to use bb just afterwards!

    3. marzo
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Just realised that I cant just do Stephens -> Doherty.

      Dendoncker basically is blocking this move as I have 3 Wolves already!

      🙁

  14. Disturbed
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    People still going for Salah on wc? Or is Mane a better option?

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Salah will be fresh

      1. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        How so? Not played recent friendlies, and didn’t play yesterday, could be lacking fitness/sharpness, Mane the much better opion imo.

    2. Francescoli
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I’ve switched to Mane

    3. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Salah is my preference but could consider Mane if money is really tight.

        Lascelles the next 3 GWs seems good

  16. Francescoli

    A) Cantwell and Saiss
    B) Guendouzi and Maguire

      1. Francescoli
        • 6 Years

        Third bench spot for Guendouzi. If it’s Cantwell would be first or second bench spot.

    Going for run in fixtures for my W/C...

    Lloris
    Docherty, Boly, Aurier (Lascelles, Taylor)
    Salah, De Bruyne, Pogba, Son, Fernandes
    Jiminez, Rashford (Nketia)

    3 x Spurs, 3 x Wolves, 3 x ManUtd, Salah & De Bruyne

    Thoughts?

      Can you get Rash over Pogba?

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        He has Rash.

          Oh the good old triple attack, sorry missed that

          I would probably go Sarr over Pogba and upgrade Aurier

    2. alfoir
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Sure about a Spurs double-up in defence? Pope looks a good option for the rest of the season.

    Thanks for all your advice over the last week. I think I’m almost there. I’m still unsure of which keeper to go for. It’s between Pope and Foster.

    Pope
    TAA Maguire Doherty
    Mane KDB Son Fernandes
    Rashford Jimenez DCL

    Martin; Lascelles Taylor Guendouzi

    1. fcsaltyballs

      looks good... happy leaving Vardy out ?

      Pope for GK imo

      1. Francescoli
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Can’t have them all. Would love Vardy but not prepared to sacrifice in the midfield and would need to make big sacrifices in defence to get DCL up to Vardy.

      Jealous of your TV - I'm trying to make my draft below look like your team

      My bench is too expensive for that 11. Can go without Son for free or Rash for -4

  21. Jay Jay Okocha
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    RMWCT

    Pope, 3.9
    TAA, Maguire, Saiss, Justin, Simpson
    Salah, KDB, Son, Sarr, Saka
    Rashford, DCL, Jimenez

    0.5 ITB

    Debating ditching Rashford for Bruno and rolling with a 352. That might allow me to squeeze in Doherty as well, albeit with a much weaker bench for the run in. Thoughts?

  22. Bruno Bruno!!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Messed up this GW on 73 With Sane (C) and KDB left. Not expecting much. What moves would you make going forward. Have all my chips left.

    Ramsdale
    TAA Maguire Doherty
    Sane KDB Grealish Fernandes
    Aubameyang Jota Jiminez.

      I stupidly captained Sane also and had Auba + Laca + Bellerin...proper messed up lol

      1. Bruno Bruno!!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        think that contract news had laid the final nail in the coffin ?

        1. jia you jia you
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          he'll probably come for a 2 minute cameo!

    4. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If you vice-captained KDB, you probably haven't messed up at all.

      1. Bruno Bruno!!

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Because nobody above you captained Aguero?

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I've looked through almost everyone and they all captained kdb or sterling

          1. Fudgy

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

    2. Bruno Bruno!!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      no you will only get 1 as you effectively have unlimited transfers again for this week

      How did Alonso play anyone?

    Consistent with seemingly everyone else on wildcard, I’m thinking of only having KDB from City.... do you think that could be a major mistake?

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I'm doing the same broski

    2. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      He’s the only one worth keeping

    3. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      That's the way I'm going.

  27. luk46
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    A - Son & Jota
    B - Bergwijn & Rashford

    I keep switching ffs, whats your preference?

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      If Bergwijn didn’t score, would you still be considering him?

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I've started bergwijin propaganda (top post on page)

      2. luk46
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I still would, got nice fixtures + hes pretty nailed I think...

    2. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Why can't you own son and Rashford ?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Probably costs -8 and a big sell.

      2. luk46
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Pope (Martin)
        TAA Doherty xxx (Kiko Simpson)
        Mane KDB Fernandes xxx (Guendouzi)
        Jimenez DCL xxx

        got like 21.3m for these 3 spots, so no way I get both Son and Rashford

    It occurred to me that the effect of the Pep roulette might be neutralised somewhat, because everyone will be rotating more than usual. Pep can continue with more or less his usual rotation plans given the size of his squad, and still I don't think someone like Sterling is likely to miss that many more games than Salah or Mane for example.
