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).

      Did Salah not feature as a precaution, or is he still a doubt for Wednesday's game?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Precaution from what I understood. Hopefully he starts next game and Mane gets benched, hehe.

          if city win today , liverpool need to play another two game for title, so i will hold him until Liverpool Vs City Game.

    • Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Unless a huge injury scare in tonight's game, I'm going to do:
      Auba, Grealish >> Mane,DCL(-4)

      Which would give:

      Ederson
      Taa Doherty Taylor
      Mane Bruno KDB Son
      Vardy Jota DCL©
      3.9 Lascelles Lord 4.2

      How does that sound ?? Obviously, I'm disgusted at my decision to get Auba instead of Kun !

      1. Chelsea91
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Good to go , if you do not want to take hit just go for Grealish to Mane, need Mane for GW31+

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Need cash for that transfer actually. And I'm sick of watching Grealish Auba in my team 😀

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Yeah, was thinking the same. Already unsure of who to downgrade apart from McCarthy

        Son has good fixtures won't give him up , defence too heavy imo

    • HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      What if i told you i sold Jimenez Doherty Traore Ings Dunk Hayden for gw30+ 😉

      1. arndff_

      2. Amey

        Who replaced them?

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          If i did no transfers and Bench Boosted gw29 team id be only 1 point behind my current gw30+ BB team 😉

          Transfers

          ** Pope --> Ederson (6)**
          Button ---> Henderson (13)
          Dunk(10) ---> Stevens (7)
          ** Taylor ---> Egan (3)
          Doherty(12) ---> Saiss (7)
          Soy (2) ---> Lascelles(5)
          Traore(4)---> Mahrez (6)**
          Hayden(7) ---> Nketiah (3)
          Jimenez(8) ---> Jota (2)
          Ings(11) ---> Grealish (3)
          --------------------------------------
          54 ---> 55

          Auba Salah TAA KDB(C) were common players in both teams

          A burnley cs means id be worse off with gw30+ BB team with unlimited transfers

      Less than a 24 hour turn around before next GW, cant recall that happening before

      Felt so satisfying getting rid of Arsenal and Villa players

      1. Srv210

        And Sheffield united players.

        Feels so good to replace majority of them with man united, wolves and spurs assets

        How about Martial Digne over Richarlison VVD?

        Can see united taking advantage of Sheffield united who will be without Henderson O'Connell and Egan. Just conceded 3 to Newcastle as well

      2. Sir_Durs8
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Take Pépé out for Martial. I would keep Richarlison for this week for sure.

        Maybe Pépé and Nyland out for Martial and DDG.

    • Phil's Stamps

        Check scout tweets. He was in squad, but injuries to Matip/Milner meant he didn't get chance to come on

          Okay thanks 🙂

    • Holmes
      • 6 Years

      Who do you think will be the popular captaincy pick? Or it will be spread between Bruno, LIV mids, Son etc?

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Mane
        Bruno
        Son
        KDB
        Salah (dead teams 😛 )

        These should be top 5 © picks i guess

        1. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Is Salah injured?
          I know he was rested last time out but is he doubt to start even next game?

            You can't be sure mate. I don't trust Klopp at all.

              Can advice me below mate?

    • RECKLESS
      • 7 Years

      Some decisions on WC,
      1) Salah or Son on WC
      2) Martial or Rashford
      3) Traore or Mount
      4) DCL or Tammy

      Right now on Salah+Rash+Traore+DCL
      Then next gw bring Mount/Tammy depending who performs vs Mcity and Salah to Son once league is wrapped

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Son 100%
        Rashford if you can afford
        Mount for me. Traore doesn't start many games sadly.
        DCL 100% (I'm sold on him after watching yesterday's game.)

        1. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          How about Pulisic over Mount as he plays further forward?

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 13 days ago

            If you can sustain odd benching, pulisic is definitely better than mount

      2. RECKLESS
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Or Mane over Salah is better having got a game under his belt?

        What to do with this lot?

        Pope (McCarthy)
        Alexander-Arnold, Maguire, Doherty (Taylor) (Egan*)
        De Bruyne, Salah, Sarr*, Fernandes (Cantwell*)
        Aubameyang*, Calvert-Lewin, Jiménez

        1 FT, 0 in bank, BB left.

        a) Save
        b) lose Auba (get who)
        c) lose Auba + Sarr/Cantwell (-4)
        d) lose Auba, Cantwell & Egan (-8) and BB
        e) something else

        Cheers in advance.

          Very good side IMO but maybe not take up a place for DDG. (Pope/Foster)

          1. Disturbed
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Already have Taylor as cover for the bur defence. United has some good fixtures coming up and ddg seems to be the best option. Cheers.

            1. FALSE PROFIT
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              It may limit Man U choices later.
              Is DDG and Taylor as good as Maguire and Pope for example?
              I understand the DDG pick but a bit like Alisson for Pool. You want to set and forget. The liklihood of changing a keeper later is small.

              1. Disturbed
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Ddg and taylor give an extra 0.6m in cash over pope and maguire. Do you think its worth the saving or pope maguire a better option?

                  • 6 Years

                  Pope Maguire/WanB IMO

        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. Saiss -> Doherty. Make a move for the guy everybody wants right now although ideally I'd like both of these guys moving forward.

          A just. Never been fond of united mids double up before though. Aurier on my radar anyway.
