Want to pick a Palace player in your Fantasy Premier League side but not sure who? Alex Roll is here with his expert pick.
In a month which saw the Eagles succumb to two back-to-back defeats, this was followed up by solid 1-0 victories over Newcastle United and the Sussex side situated along the South Coast.
Upon reflection of the month, my Crystal Palace player pick for February was Vicente Guaita who amassed a total of 20 points after deductions across the 4 February fixtures. Whilst the Sheffield United winner was credited as an own goal to Vicente, the Spaniard was awarded 3 points for saves made in the match and followed this up with a further 5 points for saves made away at Goodison Park in Gameweek 26.
Two clean sheets at the back end of February brought a total of eight extra points, as well as earning 3 extra bonus points in the Derby Day victory. On 4th March, Guaita earned a spot in EA SPORTS’ FIFA Team of the Week following his eight saves and clean sheet against Brighton and Hove Albion in Gameweek 28.
Our goalkeeper has good company in the Team of the Week alongside Bayern Munich’s Philippe Coutinho and Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata. Congratulations, Vicente!
Looking ahead to March, Palace have three league fixtures this month which includes a trip to champions elect, Liverpool (GW31). With a home game against Watford (GW29) and a trip to Bournemouth (GW30) Roy Hodgson’s side will seek to pick up points which will guarantee Premier League football for another season.
My Crystal Palace player pick for March is Jordan Ayew, who picked up a goal and an assist in February and saw a return of 16 points in the month. With Watford and Bournemouth both peering over their shoulders at the relegation places, Palace will look to break the 40-point barrier and end the season strong.
Come on you Palace!
