Want to pick a Palace player in your Fantasy Premier League side but not sure who? Alex Roll is here with his expert pick.
You have to cast your minds back to Saturday 7th March for Crystal Palace’s last Premier League fixture – a fine 1-0 home win over Watford in Gameweek 29.
Due to ongoing events, the majority of the footballing world has been put on hold with Germany’s Bundesliga and Spain’s La Liga being amongst Europe’s elite leagues to restart their calendars in recent weeks. With the resumption of the Premier League this Wednesday, it is time to dust off the Fantasy Premier League app, download any required updates and make your selections for Gameweek 30.
It should be noted that you may make unlimited transfers before Wednesday without using your Wildcard!
The remaining weeks of June present The Eagles with 3 fixtures: Bournemouth (GW30), champions in waiting Liverpool (GW31) and Sean Dyche’s Burnley (GW32).
With no form to go by and a healthy squad to choose from, Roy Hodgson will face a selection headache and has made no secret of daring to blood youngsters in the remaining PL fixtures.
My Crystal Palace player pick for June is Gary Cahill (£4.4m) who, before the suspension of the PL season, partnered Scott Dann (£4.3m) in the heart of the Eagles’ back line which saw us amass 3 clean sheets in a row (GW27-29 – Cahill receiving a total of 18 points).
All associated with Palace will be eager to hit the ground running, continue our solid defensive performances and look to finish the season strongly.
An additional Palace defender who would be an astute purchase is Patrick Van Aanholt (£5.6m) who also featured in the aforementioned Gameweeks, whilst also scoring the winner against Newcastle (15 points awarded for GW27).
His attacking influence and ability could prove beneficial in the forthcoming weeks.
Come on you Palace!
