Palace assets limited by Zaha’s isolation as Pope outscores fellow defenders

Burnley 1-0 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Chris Wood (£6.2m)
  • Assists: Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m)
  • Bonus points: Nick Pope x3 (£5.4m), Wood x2, Charlie Taylor x1 (£4.4m)

WHERE THERE’S A WILF

Crystal Palace’s reliance on Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) was exposed once again as his enforced absence coincided with a 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Monday night.

Ahead of kick-off, Roy Hodgson revealed that the out-of-position Fantasy Premier League midfielder had tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and was now self-isolating.

While there has been no official line from the club to say he will play no part in Friday night’s Gameweek 10 opener against Newcastle, the unusually quick turnaround for Palace makes it very unlikely that Zaha will feature.

“[Zaha] has tested positive unfortunately for coronavirus so is self-isolating, and is awaiting the results of the next test. He is not feeling particularly ill, but unfortunately, the test proved [positive], and he is following the procedures.” – Roy Hodgson

Unsurprisingly, Palace were unable to get a positive result on the pitch without Zaha in the side. Since 2014/15, when he rejoined the club, the Eagles have lost 20 of a possible 28 Premier League games without him, including each of the last seven on the road.

Zaha’s absence was certainly frustrating considering his increasing ownership among the top 10,000 FPL managers (48.1%) and the fact that 32.7% of these took him into Gameweek 9 alongside Jack Grealish (£7.6m), who mustered only a solitary point in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton.

That said, Zaha’s absence on Monday night did allow some fortuitous auto-subs and the nature of his flag does make it easier to sell him in light of movement in the midfield bracket.

WHILE MY GUAITA GENTLY WEEPS

The stock of Crystal Palace defenders continues to fall this season as they failed to even contain the Premier League’s lowest scorers in Gameweek 9, who were comfortably the better team.

In fact, the Eagles have kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 league games, conceding in eight consecutive matches since the 1-0 win over Southampton in Gameweek 1.

Against Burnley, Cheikhou Kouyaté (£5.0m), still filling in at centre-back, was at fault for the goal, his wayward header allowing Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m) to play Chris Wood (£6.2m) in.

Considering he is naturally a central midfielder, the fact that Gary Cahill (£4.5m) and Mamadou Sakho (£4.5m) were on the bench could spell the end for his time in defence, if Hodgson is looking for a way to freshen things up at the back.

Meanwhile, the 20% still invested in Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) are sure to be considering his place in their squad, provided they have the funds and/or transfer to move him on.

It is now three matches since he featured for Palace, return from his injury in Gameweek 9, having firmly lost his left-back place to Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m), who ranks best for minutes per shot on goal among Palace players with at least two starts in the last four matches.

While the left-back could be the penalty taker in Gameweek 10, with Zaha likely absent through isolation and Luka Milivojevic (£5.6m) suspended, the lack of clean sheets does make it hard to justify his price right now.

HAPPY PLACE

Nick Pope (£5.4m) continues to highlight his impressive points potential, this time coming away from Gameweek 9 with a 10-point haul.

It was his second double-digit score in the last five matches, which has yielded three clean sheets, two at home.

Pope was a key reason for the latest shut-out rushing out to deny Michy Batshuayi (£5.8m) after a sloppy Dwight McNeil (£5.8m) back-pass before a brave, sprawling save stopped Christian Benteke (£5.5m) at close range in the dying moments.

Since the start of last season, no goalkeeper has registered clean sheets than Pope who has averaged 4.9 points per game in 2020/21.

And it is still worth noting that, despite his dearer price, no Burnley player can match him for value this year, offering 7.2 points per million spent.

During the Clarets’ most profitable period of the season in terms of defensive returns, between Gameweeks 3 and 9, Pope and Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) have both been present five times, but the goalkeeper has outscored the left-back by 35 points to 23. That margin of 12 is largely comprised of saves and bonus.

However, whether Burnley’s recent clean sheet pedigree will count for much moving forward is another matter.

It is clear they are more solid at home and three of their next four take them away from their happy place.

Furthermore, recent meetings with Manchester City, who they face in Gameweek 10 have proved too much for them. Across Burnley’s last five trips to the Etihad Stadium (in all competitions) they have lost by a combined score of 22-1 and the last three have all been 5-0 defeats.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Gudmundsson (Brady 67′ | Pieters 84′); Rodriguez, Wood.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne; Eze, McArthur, Riedewald (Schlupp 67′), Townsend; Ayew (Benteke 77′), Batshuayi.

    Currently on Robbo Chilwell Lamptey Coufal Kilman.
    I play 3 every gw and I'm very pleased by what they give me.
    Though there are 2 defs I have targeted and I want to bring in when their fixtures turn: Cancelo and Dallas
    Would you change this defence or keep it as it is?

    Mendy probably the best acquisition in this Chelsea team thus far...

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pure rage transferred him in for Martinez a couple of weeks ago, not ideal but happy to have him for the next 20 game weeks or so

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I did the same

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Haha, think it was when that .2nd jwp freekick flew in I lost it

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        You did that also!?! 😉 I think it will be worth it in the long run.

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Naturally to see him blank and Martinez keep cs immediately after that transfer...

    Repost
    Martinez
    Semedo Robo Chillwell Mitchel Dunne
    Son Bruno Grealish Zaha* Burke
    Wilson DCL Jimi

    1 FT and 4.0 m itb

    1. Zaha to Sterling/KDB
    2. Zaha + Jimi to Ziyech + Vardy (-4)
    3. Zaha + Jimi + Robo to Vardy + Sterling + Coufal/James (-8)

    Really don't want to lose Robo but thats the only way i get both Vardy and Sterling/KDB. Instead of Robo I need to offload Semedo for Cancelo but then I have to choose between Vardy and Sterling/KDB.
    DOn't know what should I do as I am already struggling.

    Not on FLP topic but Barcelona's lineup is just unbelievable

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years

      After a 39 point WC GW, this is how my team sets up.

      Martinez
      Justin Cancelo Lascelles/Taylor
      Salah KdB Bruno Soucek/Berge
      Vardy Richarlison Watkins

      Any glaring ommissions for the run in?

      How's that?

      Salah - KDB - Bruno - Ziyech - Grealish
      Bamford/Watkins/Antonio - DCL

      To get there I am doing
      Hamez > Bruno 1FT this week
      Hopefully bank and FT next week
      Kane + Son > Salah + Bamford (scary move)
      Bowen > Ziyech the week after that

      1. wulfranian
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I wouldn't sell Son and Kane.

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Which one would you rather keep if you had to chose?

          1. wulfranian
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Son but Harry loves to score against Arsenal.

            1. Stormbringer22
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Cheers. I will hopefully have them both for the Arsenal game and intended to sell after that. I don't know, just messing around I guess, trying to figure out which premium player to leave out of my team. Thanks for the input

              1. wulfranian
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                You are welcome.Its tough.So many good options.No one knows the answer except yourself.Regardless of the result you should be proud for your choice.

    9. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Reece James on the bench is a good sign of starting at the weekend?

      1. wulfranian
        • 4 Years

        Of course.

      2. Giggs Boson

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

          Torres has been good as well to be fair, but I feel like you may get more out of Jota

          1. Jack Burton
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

    11. DonBenzema
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Torn between a few options here - your thoughts are greatly appreciated

        Mendy
        Zouma - Bellerin - Coufal
        Bruno - Zaha - Son - Ziyech
        Kane - Bamford - Vardy

        Forster - Justin - Kilman - Bissouma

        1.9 itb

        Looking to ship out Zaha, but fear I might be too late for the DCL train

        A) Zaha -> Grealish
        B) Kane and Zaha -> DCL and KDB (-4)
        B) Kane and Zaha -> DCL and Salah (-4)

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          I think B is your move

          1. DonBenzema
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Sorry for the typo - the one with KDB or Salah?

                The one with KDB. Burnley this week is a good fixture

                  He was no where near the ball in LiV game. Plus, he seems to heavily rely on pks for points

                You'd think Vardy > Werner in the next 3 at least, is captainable (not sure your next 3 C choices are amazing otherwise? penandes, werner, son/kane?), and he can turn hot in a flash. If nothing else, maybe downgrade creswell to coufal or masuaku to get rid of the ASM smell? then again, you're 1.4K for a reason, maybe hes due.

                  I feel ASM is due some points, you know that feeling where you get someone who doesnt preform at all and then bam. I feel this bam will happen in the crystal palace game. Plus I think 2 chelsea defenders is too much against spurs dont you think?

                    Fair enough - Newcastle’s fixtures look like traps though at the same time, but there’s not many better runs in the next 5 on paper. I also have Guita so hopefully it’s not this week. I’d play the WHU replacement, bench Zouma, just bank the 0.5 profit. If you don’t have a planned transfer next week either, you’ll only burn one eventually. Or you could upgrade Mitchell to Kilman and have a 2nd playing bench.

                  My plan for some time has been Son to Kdb and I have the exact cash to do so. But spurs form has made be pause. Who would you ditch for kdb

                    With that squad I would be in no rush to get him.

                      I would be tempted by another city defender but saving the FT is probably the right move

                    If you have to loose someone, has to be Son. And then consider Werner to Kane when fixtures ease.

                    I did get him for Barkley. Risky tough. Altought 20 mins from bench might work either.

                    Far better in comparison to Foden imo, who's in similar position. With injuries, Klopp will have to play his best players, with less thinking about exact formation on the pitch. That's why although he's not nailed on, I think he'll play, and when he does, he usually gets points. Also, that's why I am probably a bit scared about Mane and Salah, he'll reduce their ceiling.

                  Martinez owners, what's your thinking:
                  A) Keep, great fixtures incoming, Villa are going to keep clean sheets during that run
                  B) If I had a spare transfer/I am on wildcard I wouldn't keep him and downgrade/upgrade to:
                  C) Other:

                  Chillwell and Zaha to Cancelo and Grealish for (-8)?

                  Unless i do it, i will have to field the following eleven:

                  Ramsdale
                  Chillwell** KWP Target (Taylor,Ferguson)
                  KDB BFernandes Jota Bissouma* (Zaha**)
                  Kane DCL Vardy(C)

                  I know losing Chilwell is not the greateast transfer, but Chelsea is bottom in Season Ticker until GW18. Not very much about it. Many options on defense either.

                  Cancelo and Grealish should outscore Chillwell and Bissouma plus 8?

                  Toughts?

                    Just Zaha to Grealish if possible. Otherwise, very tough decision. Chelsea are at the bottom of the ticker, but I think they are better defense than City, but City fixtures are the best from defensive perspective. Again, I can see City conceding an odd goal even against those sides. I remember Rondon gave them trouble, why not Wood or Mitrovic. Maybe that theory is just rubbish, I don't know.

                    If you must downgrade to get Grealish, then downgrade Ramsdale. And with Barkley out, maybe Grealish is not that great option.

                    I checked an hour or so ago and he was on 80-something.

                        1) Leave it and roll a transfer.
                        2) Kane to Vardy and captain him
                        3) Kane to Antonio/Bamford and Barkley to KDB for a -4
                        4) Barkley to Foden which seems a mad idea
