Who are the best Crystal Palace players to own in FPL for Gameweek 12 and beyond?

Crystal Palace have made a promising start to their 2021/22 campaign, despite a tough opening set of fixtures which has seen the Eagles visit all of the current top five: Chelsea, Manchester City, West Ham United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

During their opening 11 Premier League matches, they have lost just two games and conceded 14 goals, and given that most of their difficult matches are behind them, it’s easy to see why many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are now considering their assets ahead of Gameweek 12.

With Selhurst Park encounters against Aston Villa, Everton, Southampton and Norwich City to come before the end of the year, plus away trips to Burnley, Leeds United and Watford, they certainly have one of the kinder schedules, but who are the best players to own in FPL for this run?

In this, our latest Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members article, we’ll take a closer look.

THE OUTLOOK

The best Crystal Palace FPL players for Gameweek 11 onwards 2

After a 3-0 loss at Chelsea on the opening day, a match which Thomas Tuchel’s side completely dominated, even the most optimistic Palace fans must have been fearing the worst.

However, that result proved to be an anomaly, as they have since lost just one match and have now recorded back-to-back wins over champions Man City and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Notably, they’ve done that despite recruiting a new manager and a host of new players in the summer, whilst introducing a new, possession-based style.

Defensively, they have been excellent, while the underlying statistics suggest that they have been a little unfortunate to concede 14 goals, despite that tougher schedule we touched on above.

Going forward, they have posted mid-table numbers to date, though with easier fixtures, you’d expect that to improve in the coming weeks.

THE TACTICS

The most eye-catching change at Palace since Patrick Vieira’s appointment has been a shift from Roy Hodgson’s 4-4-2, which focused on long balls into the channels and quick counter-attacks, to a more energetic, attack-minded 4-3-3 / 4-2-3-1 formation.

The tactic places a greater emphasis on possession and pressing in the final-third, with the impressive Conor Gallagher (£5.8m) – no. 23 below – often pushing forward and joining the attack.

    2 FTs. Any help on what to do with this train wreck?

    Sanchez* Steele

    Trent Cancelo Semedo Ayling* Livramento

    Salah Havertz Raphinia Sarr Sissoko

    Vardy Jiminez Toney

    No WC

      Steele should play in place of Sanchez, Guaita/Ramsdale are good options if you are looking to transfer

      Ayling doesnt have to be sorted this week but with 2fts you can sort if out later given the rest of your defense

      personally I would shift Havertz+Sarr for ESR/Gallagher + Son if possible, unsure of your budget

        Yeah, need to know if you have any $ in the bank..
        Sarr to Gallagher would do, and as Oleg says, Steele will cover Sanchez for 1 week..
        You could roll one..

      I have havertz too. I think it’s time to move him and Sarr,
      Possibly to son, city mid or Jota and ESR or Gallagher
      Rest of the team is Ok.
      Vardy has a nice run coming and had a nice rest so you can hold him until we see what happens with the other premiums

    Hi lads
    I trust all are well
    Looking for a bit of advice
    Current XI
    Guaita
    TAA, Cancelo, Livra
    Salah, Foden, Mbeumo, Gallag
    Toney, Vardy, Antonio
    Bench: Steele, Rudi, ESR, Duffy
    3m itb
    no FT
    would you play ESR over Toney/Mbeumo?

    regarding transfers
    would you go
    A) Toney - Wilson
    B Vardy - Kane
    C) Mbeumo -> Bowen/Cornet/?(not keen on Jota)
    D) Foden + Toney -> Son + Wilson (-8)
    E) Vardy + Toney -> Wilson + Kane ( -8)

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

      Tough call, I´d probably bench Mbuemo for Death-Rowe
      Toney to Wilson if you want next week, see how he goes
      Personally, I´ve had enough of Brentford (sold Mbuemo, hve Toney..)

        Similar feeling mate on both all accounts for brentford, the norwich game was the final straw for me, the team that played Liv+Chels was nowhere to be seen or heard from.
        thanks for the advice mate, a bit reserved on Wilson aswell, though forwards in general given the dearth of points in recent gws

      Thought I was reading a poem for a second

        Ode to Odegard?

    Bottomed:

    So hard to decide who to get:

    A) Havertz to Son maby the best option this week.
    But will stop me from getting Jota or Cancelo next week.

    B) Vardy to Kane will give cash to go Rudiger to Cancelo next week, and/or Havertz to Jota.
    But will probably want Vardy again next week for his good fixture run?

    1. ted mcnure
      • 11 Years
      18 days, 21 hours ago

      Son and Cancelo are the 2 I want, I´m holding on to Vardy..
      If you have Mo and Trent you can live without Diogo

  4. And nothing else Mata'…

    A.Armstrong or C.Willson for the next GW?

    1. Sloopy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      18 days, 21 hours ago

      Wilson imo

    2. ted mcnure
      • 11 Years
      18 days, 21 hours ago

      Callum

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      18 days, 20 hours ago

      Wilson - Armstrong becomes a risky pick once Broja is fit

    4. TB303
      • 4 Years
      18 days, 20 hours ago

      Wilson

  5. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    18 days, 21 hours ago

    Bench one:

    A) Vardy (CHE) - playing double CHE def
    B) Sarr (MAN)
    C) Livramento (nor)

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      18 days, 20 hours ago

      Sarr

    2. TB303
      • 4 Years
      18 days, 20 hours ago

      Sarr

    Hi folks,

    With double Chelsea (Mendy, Rudiger) double Man City (Cancelo, Dias) defence, who would you sacrifice to get Reguilon?
    A. Rudiger
    B. Dias

    Would you prioritize:
    C. Raphinha -> Jota
    D. Vardy -> Kane
    (can't afford Son in current team structure)

    Thanks!

    1. TB303
      • 4 Years

      A&D

    2. TB303

    Right players on the bench?

    Toney v toon
    High chance Livra will play against Norwich

    foster
    Cancelo - Dias - Chilwell - TAA
    Salah - Gallagher - Raph- benrahma
    Kane - Antonio

    Ramsdale -Toney - Livra- brownhill
