Julian Speroni helps Crystal Palace record their first clean sheet of the 2014-15 season.

Julian Speroni saved a penalty to secure a valuable point at home vs Burnley this past weekend. Other than that, Speroni hasn't had the best of luck to start the season. Prior to last week's game Palace had conceded eight goals in three games. However, a clean sheet in Week 4 could be just what the team needed to gain some confidence heading into a stretch of games in which they'll face just two Top 10 teams (currently) in their next six matches. Speroni will look to remain sharp against Everton in Week 5.

Julian Speroni was the hero in Crystal Palace's 0-0 draw against Burnley by saving a penalty in the 85th minute.

Both teams had chances in this match but poor finishing led to a 0-0 draw. Mile Jedinak brought down Burnley's Lucas Jutkiewicz late in the match and gave Burnley a chance to steal three points from Selhurst Park. Julian Speroni wasn't having any of it though, as he stretched to his right and got his hand on the ball. The clean sheet and penalty save have Speroni as a frontrunner for this week's goalkeeper spot in our Best XI.

Marouane Chamakh is out for at least a week with a hamstring injury.

Joe Ledley has recovered from a strain midweek but Chamakh won't be able to make the Burnley match. Dwight Gayle has also recovered and is a good option this week as he looks to build upon his four goals this season against one of the worst teams in the league - Burnley. No other big injuries at Crystal Palace.

Wilfried Zaha has returned to Crystal Palace on loan and could score big fantasy points against Burnley this weekend.

Certain players fit a club perfectly, and it appears Zaha is one of those who is back where he belongs. While some people say he wasn't given a chance at Manchester United, he was poor whenever he did get some pitch-time and did nothing while on loan at Cardiff. Yet within 20 minutes of coming off the Palace bench in Week 3 he had two shots on target and had a goal disallowed before grabbing a vital late equaliser. You can just imagine what he could do in 90 minutes against Burnley on his return to Selhurst Park.

Andrew Johnson has re-joined Crystal Palace after being released by Queens Park Rangers last season.

33-year-old Johnson is something of a Palace legend, scoring 85 goals in 160 games during his first spell with the club between 2002 and 2006, and has been handed a coaching role alongside his short-term playing contract. The striker is unlikely to see too much first team action, but his experience will be handy and he's always good for a goal from the bench - much in the style of recently released veteran Kevin Phillips.

Crystal Palace's Glenn Murray has made a move to Reading on loan.

Murray is out of favour at Crystal Palace as they've signed Kevin Doyle and won't be in the Premier League until January, which is when Doyle's loan ends. We will update his status in January if he somehow becomes fantasy relevant, but that's very unlikely.

Crystal Palace have signed striker Kevin Doyle on a four month loan.

The Republic of Ireland international will challenge Marouane Chamakh, Dwight Gayle and Fraizer Campbell for a starting spot at Crystal Palace but the team have struggled in all aspects of the game and Doyle doesn't seem to be worth a roster spot in most fantasy formats. He has previous Premier League experience but we don't anticipate that to help too much in this situation.

Crystal Palace complete their second signing on deadline day with the capture of James McArthur from Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

While the fee hasn't been made official, it is thought to be in the neighborhood of £7m , which would be a club record. McArthur should see himself go straight in as a regular for Neil Warnock, set to partner Mile Jedinak in the center of midfield. At 26, McArthur is in the prime of his career and should be an integral part of how the season plays out for the Eagles.

Crystal Palace have made their first purchase of transfer deadline day by bringing in Tottenham Hotspur left-back Zeki Fryers for an undisclosed fee.

21-year-old Fryers has signed a three-year contract with Palace and becomes Neil Warnock's second signing following Wilfried Zaha's loan move on Thursday. The defender is primarily a left-back and will battle Adrian Marriapa for a spot in the Eagles' first team.

In a back and forth entertaining match, Crystal Palace were able to level the score 3-3 with a goal from substitute Wilfried Zaha.

What a bizarre match that earns a point for Palace in the Neil Warnock era. They took the lead inside the opening minute when Dwight Gayle fired in a rebound from a Marouane Chamakh shot that hit the post. Newcastle would level as the two clubs went into halftime. Then, just a few minutes into the second frame, Jason Puncheon gave the Eagles the lead back with a stunning volley. Newcastle would then score twice unanswered to take the lead late, but Zaha, who came on for Gayle after the striker limped off with a knock, saved a point with a goal deep into stoppage time. Palace certainly don't appear to have the defense that led them to success under Tony Pulis but they showed today they have some attacking ability that will keep them in matches.

After a frustrating first year at Manchester United and on loan with Cardiff City, Wilfried Zaha has rejoined Crystal Palace on a one year loan deal.

Neil Warnock has made a splash on his second day on the job at Selhurst Park by bringing back a favorite of the supporters in the form of Wilfried Zaha. After leaving the Eagles for Manchester United about a year ago for approximately £15million the rising star returns having made very little impression while gone. He barely played at all for United and was unimpressive in a loan spell with Cardiff City. Both player and club will hope that a return home will see increased playing time as Zaha gets his career back on track.

New Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock is hoping to complete a sensational return to Selhurst Park for former winger Wilfried Zaha.

Zaha was instrumental in Palace's promotion in 2012/13 and his performances secured him a big-money move to Manchester United, but he had very little opportunity to impress under David Moyes and does not appear to be in Louis van Gaal's immediate plans. Neil Warnock has only been in the Eagles job for two days but Sky Sports are reporting he held talks with Zaha on Wednesday night in an effort to convince him to return to the club.

Leicester and Wigan have agreed on a fee for the rights to James McArthur.

The Wigan midfielder has been pursued by Leicester in recent weeks and the Foxes have finally made an offer big enough. Leicester boss Niger Pearson has repeatedly stated that he's happy with his players but needs more options to compete in the Premier League and it's hard to imagine McArthur as an every game starter. We don't anticipate to see McArthur as a great fantasy option this season.

Dwight Gayle scored a first-half hat-trick as Crystal Palace eased past Walsall and into the third round of the Capital One Cup.

This was a much needed confidence booster for the Eagles, who have lost their first two Premier League games and are continuing to struggle without a manager. Gayle has shown moments of class since signing with the club in the summer of 2013 including a brace of goals to derail Liverpool's title challenge back in May, and his hat-trick last night should earn the striker the opportunity to start against Newcastle in Week 3.

Martin Kelly was a star fantasy performer in Week 2 despite his side Crystal Palace's defeat to West Ham.

Kelly was recently signed from Liverpool, is starting on the right-hand side of the Palace defence and looks like he'll be a prolific point scorer in the Yahoo fantasy game. The 24-year-old picked up eight fantasy points in Week 2 thanks to a host of tackles won and passes intercepted and can still be added to your fantasy team for less than £2million. He could prove a handy cheap option to keep on your bench as back-up to your starting XI.
