Consider which Crystal Palace players could be suitable for your FPL team this season.

As well as budget choices, our scout is investigating all possible selections from each squad in the 2020-21 Fantasy Premier League.

Crystal Palace FPL players

Let’s take a closer look at Crystal Palace’s FPL team and make some recommendations.

🥅 Goalkeepers

Vicente Guaita is reasonably priced at £5m, but for that money we’d prefer Aaron Ramsdale or Jordan Pickford.

👬 Defenders

Talk of the town here is £4m youngster Nathan Ferguson, who looks set to go into the new season as Palace’s first-choice right-back.

Could he be the new Aaron Wan-Bissaka? At that price, and given his likely starting role, he’s got to be worth a place on your bench.

Tyrick Mitchell is another £4m option who looks set to start, but only until Patrick van Aanholt recovers from injury.

He’s expected back sooner rather than later, so Mitchell doesn’t look like a long-term option unless he impresses hugely.

All the same, there’s room for a non-playing £4m defender in your squad to free up funds for elsewhere, at least in the opening months of the campaign.

🏃 Midfielders

£7m Wilfried Zaha is the only one worth considering here, and even then we’d only seriously look at him if he joins another team.

£6m Luka Milivojević used to be a popular pick but, as Palace’s penalties dried up, so did his points.

🥳 Forwards

Nothing to see here – Jordan Ayew was worth a punt at £5m but not at £6m, while Christian Benteke is not the force of old.

You might find room for £4.5m Connor Wickham, but only as a cheap enabler to sit on your bench.
