Can FPL managers trust Crystal Palace defenders with appealing fixtures?

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers have long been able to turn to Crystal Palace’s defensive assets for cheap returns.

The Eagles, marshalled by veteran Roy Hodgson, have hit double-figures for clean sheets in the last two seasons, and also carried set piece potential.

But this season, the well appeared to have run dry, with Palace only recording three clean sheets thus far.

More worryingly, the Selhurst Park outfit were also on the end of two Christmas stuffings, losing 7-0 to Liverpool and being outplayed by 10 men in their 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

But since the Villa defeat, Palace’s defence has shown signs of recovery, with encouraging performances against Leicester and Arsenal.

We are taking a deep dive into the stats to see if Palace can once again be relied upon for cheap defensive returns.

            Ah yes, I must have been thinking of the Wallonian Wizard, Ilkay Gundogan

            1. aleksaa2

              1 month, 9 days ago

              Hahaha you didn't read previous articles about City. Someone who writes articles thinks KDB is German, wrote German midfielder like 5 times.

                  I once published an article on Palace heaping praise on "Louis Zaha".

                    It happens to the best of us.
                    But this guy is something else.

                    Man that's a player who I haven't thought about in years... Louis Saha.

      Goal, assist, off at 78th min. City win 2-1. Grealish goal.

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Don't think Pep touched on him at all

    5. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Still the best midfielder in the world

    6. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah he’s German now.

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

        what? how?

        1. aleksaa2
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          He applied for a German citizenship and got it. How else could he do it?

        2. Catenaccio FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Turns out his grandma had an affair with a bavarian soldier during ww2

    7. hueycho
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yeah he wont score from an open play, dont worry

  2. Van der Faart
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Cup game who wins;
    A) 9 points plus Silva, Robbo, Bruno, Wilson

    B) Martinez, James*, KDB(C), Soucek, Salah, Watkins

    *if James doesnt play Holding comes off the bench

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      The one with twice as many players still to go

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      B as A has Silva and Wilson.

    3. doher.ty
        1 month, 9 days ago

        B and it's not even close

    4. Abaddon
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      What do we think of the chances for RJames and Johnstone starting tonight?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Very high.

        1. Abaddon
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yeah hope so. Would make my BB a bit better

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        James better than Azpi nowadays and Button has always been rubbish so...

      3. popey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Jmaes fit was one of the reasons I BB'ed in the end. Azpi has looked slow before and gther he didnt have a great game v Fulham prior to the red. Really hope he plays, would take a 2pter now tbh

    5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Salah, Rodrigo,Grealish to Kane,Son, ESR in 2 weeks time looks good...

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yes it does.

      2. EmreCan Hustle
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Rodrigo and Grealish will also have a double at some point though.

      3. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Selling Salah before Brighton (H) and bringing in Kane/Son before Chelsea (H)?

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I meant Son,Kane in before Brighton and Salah out before West Ham
          Might backfire the week after though yeah

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Fair

      4. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        2 weeks is a long time in FPL though

    6. cruzex
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Werner will start tonight?

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Probably.

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        You'd think, doesn't make him any good though

    7. cruzex
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Leicester vs Chelsea Predictions?

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        1-1

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Depends entirely on whether Vardy plays. Leicester toothless without him.

      3. Chenku╰☆╮
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        3-3 all scored by vardy and werner. i dont own either.

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

          As a Vardy and Mendy owner I would be more than happy to concede those 3 goals 😀

      4. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I'd give anything for 1-1 Chilwell and Justin ogs...

    8. Brosstan

      Anyone else looking at Guaita. He's given me some good memories...

        Lmaoo

      2. Jon Walter's Hatty

          [100% (Because didn't start previous game) + 50% (Because Pep Roulette) + 25% (Because I got him in my team)] ÷ 3 = 58.33% chance of starting the game

      5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        It seems perfectly fine to be in a position where you have to start 1 of ESR and Soucek every week
        Right?

        I mean, we can make a case of starting either of them week in week out atm I guess...

        1. doher.ty
            1 month, 9 days ago

            It's fine but it's not my preferred. Like a sure starter who *can get points as my first sub.

            1. elwardio
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              They seem both assured starters at the moment at least and even better both have attacking returns in them. You won’t get a regular scorer or assister at 4.4m !

              1. elwardio
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                I think the problem is it takes midfield slot which means you have to go without at least one of Son salah kdb Fernandes

          • Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I'm considering start them both and going big elsewhere

          • Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Problem with soucek is its impossible to predict his returns

            1. The VAR Team
              • 1 Year

              That’s the problem with FPL

              Don't know if this is only readable with a subscription but a good read of an article from The Athletic on the title race, each team's flaws and issues this season:

                Asking me for £3.99/month.
                Worth it?

                  Honestly I think their sports journalism is top notch - they've managed to hoover up all the best journos and produce some excellent insightful content.

                  I managed to sign up on a special offer so got for cheaper - but still may be worth it tbh

                    Thanks Don. I am pathologically incredibly mean with money with myself so need to give this kind of thing a lot of thought.

                      I wish I was like that - we may be doing a lot better financially 😆

                        Don't be. If you're like me with wife and kids who genuinely seeming to believe in the magic money tree it really makes no difference. Enjoy what you can.

                It's a little too surface level for me.

                I much prefer the team deep dives on the Athletic. The ones that looked at Liverpool's recent problems was good.

                  I agree - but didn't want to get too Liverpool heavy in case I got lambasted

                  This was a decent succinct summary - but it seems only subscribers can read them anyway

                Easily Taylor- Dallas could have a double soon

                        Not too worried, he was sitting on 7 million OR until this GW which he will pass the century mark....good that luck does not come often to the ghost teams

              Does the potential of city have doubles in 24, 26 and 27 warrant getting Dias over Cancelo (already own Stones) simply because of his security of starts? Is this enough to nullify potential gains from Cancelo's attacking upside?

              I was initially considering to bring in Cancelo for a free this week, but should I be reconsidering?

                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  As a Cancelo owner, I’m yet to see these “upside” gains so far! I think they’re a myth lol.

                    His stats are crazy, and he passes the eye test with the crosses he whips in and shots...however, City haven't been finishing these off due to Sterling etc being a bit off (he plays off Sterling a lot)- It feels like a haul is imminent...If he was nailed-on I'd have him over Dias any day

                    1. Saka_me_sideways
                        1 month, 9 days ago

                        I think if you’ve got stones already, then It gives you the licence to a bit more of a risk with Cancelo.
                        Like you say... he’s due.

                      I will move out Cancelo for Dias once Dias gets rested in some match

                      hard to say, I'd guess Barkley if he's on the pitch (not sure his record though?).

                      Jack has never been first choice (took and missed one last season). Watkins took no pens in his 26 goals in champ last season and 1 from 2 for us this year so far.

                      Conor would have been an option if he made it onto the pitch but we've loaned him to Swansea this afternoon

                      Grealish
                      But don't know if that's the case if Barkley is on the pitch..

                        get more insight but isn't it the 5th round results that confirms the Blanks?

                              after this round a few more games will be confirmed due to teams knocked out, and as the 5th round draw already taken place you can make educated guess on remaining blanks. Ben Crellin spreadsheet on twitter has all the info i think

                          Hamstring usually takes 3 weeks depends on the severity
                          No news how serious it was and I am assuming if it was more serious that would have been around 2 months
                          No news means very likely to be 3 weeks

                          keep and use coufal as bench fodder for covid randomness

                          Roll FT
                          All of them have good reasons to stay. Maybe next GW we'll get some reason to kick someone from them

                            Yes can easily save FT.

                          Serves him right for acting as a smart#$&. But tbf, he mentioned that the FA doesn't allow them to disclose the name of affected players so

                          Is it right to still target Fulham fixtures?
                          Tottenham and Chelsea struggled against them and with Lemina and Loftus-Cheek back into midfield for Man Utd game to add to Lookman, Anguissa and Cavaleiro I think they can cause problems for them.

                                Yeah. Fulham still got a few injuries and suspensions but don't think they can be considered whipping boys anymore.

                              If City play Villa youth/reserves team tomorrow does Kevin De Bruyne even need to play at all??

                                Villa will play their full strength team or very close to it. Another fraud case of pretending to be covid hit to get a rest. Pathetic from VIlla but hey, City got away with it so why not...

                                And most of the first 11 back in training so i doubt that

                              Can there be any DGWs before GW26?

                                GW23: Leeds and S'oton, depending on Cup results

                                  Hmm Cheers. Is that a likely scenario or something silly like Spurs losing to Wycombe.

                                Villa, Fulham and Spurs could probably also have another DGW

                                City are likely to have one in 26

                                    James in late game, given most around me in ML seem to have a combination of Maddison, Vardy and Justin I would really appreciate James starting and a CS

                                      Easy save, strong bench to cover both potential 5YC suspension (Bruno & Jack) and general COVID worries

                                      may get a view on Lee/Sou DGW fairly soon too
