Crystal Palace were held goalless for the first time in the preseason, as they wrap up their summer with a 0-0 draw against FC Augsburg.
While the attack may have stalled out today, fantasy managers are more concerned with the defense and Tony Pulis' side kept things clean. There has been a growing battle between Julian Speroni and Wayne Hennessey for the Eagles #1 shirt, and today did not settle things as each played a half. Luckily, with Arsenal on tap for Week 1, no one should have to guess wrong. But if Hennessey does overtake Speroni, he becomes an instant budget asset for fantasy managers, especially when Palace are at home. Aug 9 - 1:46 PM

Sky Sports understands Julian Speroni is poised to sign a new deal at Crystal Palace to end speculation over his future.

Speroni was one of the key reasons for Palace's remarkable revival under Tony Pulis but his future had been unclear with his current deal set to expire at the end of June, and with plenty of other clubs showing interest. It is vital for the Eagles to seal a deal soon, or else the 35-year-old will be able to leave the club on a free transfer, and Sky Sports are reporting that he is close to signing a one-year extension.

Goalkeeper Julian Speroni, striker Marouane Chamakh and midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi. are in talks over new deals to stay at Selhurst Park as their contracts near expiry.

All three men were vital cogs in the Tony Pulis machine and the club will be keen to tie them down to new deals pronto, with their contract running out and with rival clubs circling. Once the current deals expire the players will be allowed to leave on free transfers, so it's key that the talks are concluded before June 1.

Sunderland are considering a move for out-of-contract Crystal Palace keeper Julian Speroni as they search for an understudy to Vito Mannone.

Speroni was one of the key reasons for Palace's remarkable revival under Tony Pulis but his future remains unclear with his current deal set to expire next week. The Eagles signed Wayne Hennessey from Wolves in January which raised some doubts regarding the goalkeeping situation at Selhurst Park, but Speroni's performances have kept him as number one and he has made it clear he wants to stay, so the board could still be tempted to offer the 35-year-old an extension within the next few days. If not, the keeper will be able to leave on a free transfer, and Sunderland are at the front of the queue if that happens.

Crystal Palace Julian Speroni did everything right in a 1-0 win over Chelsea.

Speroni came off his line when he had to, controlling his box and not letting Chelsea get a goal. The win is a huge one for Crystal Palace, who are now five points clear of the relegation zone. Speroni has been in great form recently and can be trusted when Palace are playing at home. He comes in at a relative affordable price most weeks and can often provide enough saves to make it worth the price. On the road, Palace are a lot more likely to concede and Speroni is a very dangerous pick.

In the fourth minute of stoppage time Hatem Ben Arfa found Papiss Cisse in the box for a headed goal that provided the final margin.
