‘Out of position’ Zaha scores as £4.0m defender Mitchell helps Palace to clean sheet

Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton

  • Goal: Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m)
  • Assist: Andros Townsend (£6.0m)
  • Bonus: Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) x3, Townsend x2, Scott Dann (£4.5m) x1

Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) bagged the winning goal, but none of the bonus points, as Crystal Palace returned to their roots to grind out a win over Southampton.

The Eagles managed just one win in nine as they lost their way post-lockdown; a fact that must have irked boss Roy Hodgson. After years spent perfecting his kindly owl image, he was clearly busy this summer rebooting his touchline persona.

And for much of the match, his new scowling sunburnt tourist look suited the quality, or lack thereof, on the pitch as play was broken, passes went astray and chances were scarce.

An early burst of Southampton attacking intent culminated in a Jack Stephens (£5.0m) header forcing a routine save from Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) – the first of five stops from the Palace keeper that earned him the maximum bonus award for his 1.8% Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership.

At 24.4%, his opposite number, Alex McCarthy (£4.5m), came into the match as FPL’s most popular stopper, but hopes of a clean sheet were dashed after just 13 minutes when Zaha volleyed sweetly home from Andros Townsend‘s (£6.0m) pin-point cross.

The problem for managers who have a keeper playing against Palace is that if they don’t get the shut-out, then save points are unlikely to soften the blow. Hodgson’s side managed just 118 shots on target last year – only Sheffield United (110) had fewer – and they seemed content to live on attacking scraps once they were ahead yesterday.

By the time the game was up and the three points tucked away in Hodgson’s back pocket, his team had worked McCarthy just twice.

The story was markedly different at the other end.

A dour first half clearly led to some pointed dressing room comments from Southampton coach Ralph Hasenhuttl because his players came out swinging after the restart.

Che Adams (£6.0m) set up Nathan Redmond (£6.5m), whose weak shot from inside the area went straight at Guaita. The 13%-owned Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m) then put in a low ball that eluded everyone as Southampton’s high tempo start to the second half threatened to pay immediate dividends.

That tempo, ultimately, proved to be unsustainable – perhaps a sign of early-season fatigue – but not before Adams forced a truly brilliant save from Guaita, who reacted instinctively to beat out the striker’s well-hit volley.

It was the closest Adams got to a goal from a generally underwhelming performance. Some 4.8% of FPL managers had hoped he would offer the same sort of attacking threat as his Southampton strike partner Danny Ings (£8.5m) for considerably less money.

Neither, as it turned out, could find a way past Guaita, with the (then) 25.7%-owned Ings denied three times, most notably in stoppage time when his header, from a Walker-Peters cross, was well saved by the Palace keeper.

That capped an eventful day for the Southampton right-back, who had earlier been dismissed by referee John Moss for a high tackle, only for VAR to suggest the official might want to review his decision on the pitch-side monitor. That he did, red became yellow – rightly – and Walker-Peters’ ownership had to be grateful for one point from a match that could have seen him walk off with a negative score.

Hasenhuttl’s side still have a solid early-season schedule to come – one of the reasons Ings is so popular – but the knee-jerkers are already busy and the striker is currently the second-most sold player heading into Gameweek 2.

The opposite is not entirely true for Zaha, however.

The midfielder, who played the match out of position as a second striker, should have walked away with more than an eight-point haul from the match.

Twice he was sent clean through on the counter as Southampton chased the game. He scored from one of the breaks, only to be denied by a marginal, if correct, offside call, and could only find the side netting from the other.

That profligacy hurt his bonus point standing and a tough immediate schedule – Manchester United and Chelsea away over the next three Gameweeks – is not helping his popularity in the transfer market either.

That could all change from Gameweek 5 onwards, when Palace’s fixtures improve markedly. But only if he’s at the club at all.

Hodgson remained unconvinced post-match.

Let’s see what transpires. For me, hopefully nothing. The fact is that every transfer window I’ve been involved in, Wilf has made noises that he would like to play for a club that plays in the Champions League.

But for anything to happen, a club has got to come along and pay the market price. We’re expecting him to accept the situation for what it is and keep playing his best football.

A lot of Palace’s best football was reserved for their defence who, despite numerous injury concerns, kept Southampton at arms length for much of the encounter.

Bargain basement left-back Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m and 13.7%) looked solid, although he offered little in an attacking sense, while veteran defender Scott Dann (£4.5m) helped makeshift centre-half Cheikou Kouyate (£5.0m) look the part while the likes of Mamadou Sakho (£4.5m) edge closer to a return.

Patience will no doubt inform Hodgson’s game. That is a luxury Hasenhuttl knows he can ill afford.

We had a difficult pre-season with players not with us and we couldn’t work for two weeks on what we wanted to do. You can see it will be a tough season and we must step up immediately.

Based on yesterday’s evidence, that step up will have to be a fairly big one – the Saints entertain Tottenham next.


Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Dann, Kouyaté, J Ward; Schlupp (Eze 81′), McCarthy (Milivojevic 74′), McArthur, Townsend; Zaha, Ayew.

Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek (Vestergaard 45′), J Stephens, Walker-Peters; Smallbone (Djenepo 77′), Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond; Adams (Long 85′), Ings.

    Hey fam! Would you do Barnes & Alli to Rashford & Harisson?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Barnes surely looked good?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yes good point

      2. George James

        1. chilli con kone
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          He must mean Ashleumy Barnes and thinking that Rashford is a striker still

        2. George James
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Taking out a player from a team
          Who just won 3-0 and full of confidence with decent fixture coming up seems odd.

          1. Pep Roulette
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Good point mate

      3. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Huh?

    3. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      What about just swap Alli?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yes will do that

    4. QUEN
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Alli to Rodriguez seems good I think he will do well

  2. gonzalocampos
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Exact cash to do Son for Fernandes, when we expect to rise in price? Wait one more day?

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Did Bruno make his flight back before quarantine?

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Ya

    2. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I would do it. Might backfire though

    3. LC1
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah I'd do that

    4. Rock n Grohl
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah I'd make that move.

  3. George James
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Best move?

    A) Son >> Rashford

    B) Ings >> Martial

    1. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A - Ings looked much better than Son. I'm currently thinking Son to Rashford myself. Rash may need a week or so to get up to speed but how can you not get him with his move to midfield. Bound to score big this year.

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Che, Barnes, Ayling and Doherty all looked good but blanked.

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Add Richarlison too

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Solid picks if you have them all - worrying comment I thought someone say Mou had rotation with Aurier planned

  5. drughi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    How perfect this gameweek would have been if only ings scored that KWP cross.

  6. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Son ->

    A) Bruno/Rashford
    B) Sterling/KdB
    C) Save?

    1. Netters2018
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A) but depends if you have auba for kdb swap in gw3

    2. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I would do A. Pep roulette too risky, wait and see on City.

  7. puhd
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Mc Carthy
    TAA Vinagre Mitchell Justin Taylor
    Auba (C) Salah Son Havertz Son Soucek
    Mitro Werner Brewster

    Rip it up, lads. This is my team.
    Would like to get Rash, Martial or Fernandes in for next GW

    1. LC1
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Tough one and very similar to my team and predicament.

      I was planning on doing Salah to Bruno then Mitro to Martail or Kun but can't bring myself to getting rid of Salah after a hattrick.

      1. puhd
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I think the wisest choice is to wait. But I know me, I’ll end up taking a hit to get one of these lads in

    2. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Oops I have Son twice

  8. noone
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Would you do Son+Mitro------->Martial + James Rod for -4?

    or just do Son -----> Bruno for free?

    1. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Son to Bruno

    2. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      B

  9. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Have DCL and no United. Alli to which option?

    A. Hamez
    B. Greenwood

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A

    2. puhd
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Not sure about Greenwood’s game time

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      B worth the upside risk

    4. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Cheers everyone

    5. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      B

    6. BigBrown
        1 month, 9 days ago

        B

    7. pjanns
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Alli --> Greenwood or Rashford?

      1 mill short for Bruno, but I could really see Greenwood, with some end-product again this year.

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He will most probably end on bench when transfer window ends,so Rash

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Which gameweek transpired to the transfer deadline ending?

          I thought the window for Sancho had already passed? Dortmund have United a deadline in August I think.

      2. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I'm thinking Rash is a safer bet. But Greenwood is tempting to save the money

      3. BigBrown
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Prefer Rashford, more game time guaranteed.

      4. tricpic
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        When is Utd friendly game? And do we know that Bruno is back and not in some kind of quarantine?

        1. LC1
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          It was yesterday and we lost 1-0 to Villa

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 9 days ago

            No var no utd

          2. tricpic
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            That bodes well. Did Bruno feature?

            1. Atletico Junior
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              No

            2. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              VDB, Rashford, Shaw, Maguire were only first team players playing.

      5. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        I’m avoiding Utd as I think the CryP is not straight forward..

        Sterling or DeBruyne??
        Tempted by sterling

        2. n-doggg
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yeah tempted by him to. Just the fact there are going to be more pens again this best meaning KdB will clean up

        3. sully29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Their fixtures suit KDB more, I think.

        4. Rock n Grohl
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Looking at Sterling myself. Going up against adjusting fullbacks in Wolves and Leicester could be rewarding.

        5. RedWolf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I went Sterling. Unlikely to be rotated early doors (?) And more explosive. If he's awful there's always the wildcard in a few weeks

      6. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        A Brighton 1-0 win will round round off the week nicely

          Liverpool fan and captains Auba?

          1. Bada Bing
            • 3 Years

            Being a fan and playing fpl are two totally different things, nothing weird about his decision.

          2. mrodgers91
            • 2 Years

            Never back my own team, betting PTSD

      8. n-doggg
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Not making changes now but looking at some options:

        A. Son to Rashford
        B. Salah to Bruno
        C. Son & Adams to Foden & Martial (-4)

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Shifting Salah has to be a difficult decision now. He’ll be full of confidence.
          Maybe A

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Did you see how open Southampton were? Son type of defence. Wouldn't sell for Rash.

          B would be attacking but you know the risks

      9. Tinmen
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Folks, set on a -4 but which one

        A) Son and Nketiah to Greenwood and DCL

        B) Son and Nketiah to Bruno and 4.5 fodder

          A

      10. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Which one would you rather have next week?
        A) Vardy v (H)Burnley+ 1FT
        B) Martial v (H)Palace

        1. n-doggg
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          B longer term

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Could hold for 1 week then do a double move I suppose.
            Vardy and Martial could score similar next week.

                  That was after the game i think...will check if i can find that post but shd be some news soon if there is any truth whatsoever

                    If this is true - how do we see Man Utd lining up (assuming no Sancho signing)?

                    I could see them opting for a diamond:
                    Matic
                    van de Beek Pogba
                    Bruno
                    Greenwood Martial

                    Would allow both strikers to drift into the channels, cutting in on their stronger foot. And would surely ensure Greenwood is a very exciting option?

            Rashford is awkwardly priced. Slightly cheaper than Bruno who is a better fpl asset. Way more expensive than Greenwood and Martial offers a solid Man Utd asset at 0.5 less.

              Except that Rashford outscored Martial last year, then they have switched positions, which heavily favors Rashford this season. No?

              Doesn’t take penalties anymore. Accounts for 50% of his output

            Digne my differential. He played a really good game for France against Sweden the other day. Also worth saying that Kante was back to his best on that game. I know the GK position is a worry but Kante is key to Chelsea's clean sheet potential

              Loved to have got him. Especially how solid Everton looked. Although they were playing a pretty terrible spurs

            Evening folks, I'm new around these parts. Got an itchy trigger finger hovering over my midfield.
            Currently Auba Mane Son Soucek Saka with 2.0 ITB.
            Tempted by Son & Saka to an 8.5 and 7.5 for a -4.
            So, Pulisic or Havertz? Greenwood or the Colombian JRod? Something else? Or keep?
            Mane gets one more chance to not become KdB.
            For info, have Timo & DCL up front.
            TIA.

              I’d probably do son and saka to Bruno and a 4.5

              Or James and Havertz/puli - but wait a few days’

                Appreciate the opinion, thanks. I'll wait for the CHE game (I'd like one of them). I'm not expecting many price changes tonight.

              Be patient. Still 37 GWs left. You have a good team, dont start taking hits. I would upgrade Saka next, and then move Auba for KdB in gw 3

            Kane selectors sticking with him for another week?

            1. socho
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              I imagine he wasn't selecated with GW1 in mind...

            2. Nightcrawler

              Would be a mistake. The soomer ppl realise kane is not the same player he was the better

              Yea... not thrilled and Martial is tempting but having the 2FTs next week seems so useful

            Guys, can you help me understand a bit about xG and its other siblings.

            For instance, Leeds had an open play xG of 0.27 but scored 3 goals. What does this mean? They scored goals that usually won't be scored... ??

            Just my first time using data for my FPL decisions so any help is appreciated!

            1. Kloppcorn
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Basically based off of the chances that they had they should have scored 0.27 goals however they were very clinical with their efforts

            2. Kloppcorn
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              *G is good to go off however some players are extremely clinical so they outscore their *g consistently

              I think it means that they scored goals that average footballer won't be expected to score or they got lucky.

              1. Zim0
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                So they were really clinical. Which i hope is a consistent thing because i want one of their mids

                Cool.

                If anything, I'd say it was the former. Difficult to get three goals with luck alone against the champions.

                1. Kloppcorn

                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  Combination of the two for me

                  1. KGFC
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 9 days ago

                    Looking at how the other two promoted teams folded, I'd say Leeds did amazing even with a bit of luck.

                    Gives me confidence of starting Ayling next week!

            How do you think Ings will do v Spurs? With keeping you think or move to Martial

              Yeah definitely a good shout there. Will be a tough call if you're on Werner and does well up to that point though. Easy for those on Kane obviously.

            What happened to Alli?

                Hmm, I planned Ings -> Martial, but maybe I should skip Alli then?

              No Werner either though, so could still suffer.
