James McArthur scored a goal but it looked to be wrongly deemed offside and that summed up a forgettable day for Crystal Palace as they were run over by Manchester City at the Etihad, 3-0.

Palace took a safe approach hoping City would not have their usual attack flowing minus a true striker in their XI and for the first 45 minutes, the plan was working. Though City had the lion's share of possession and took 8 first half shots to just one for the Eagles, Palace's shot was the only one that was on target. City began to click as the second half picked up and Palace found themselves down 2-0 in quick fashion. McArthur looked to have given them a fighting chance in the 68th minute though, when he scored from a Yannick Bolasie cross. The goal should have stood but it was adjudged offside. A bitter pill to swallow as the outcome may have been different, but in all likelihood, City were going to get three points from this regardless.

Neil Warnock will need to wait a little longer to discover the full extent of the hamstring injury suffered by Marouane Chamakh during Saturdays’ home draw with Stoke City.

The Moroccan striker limped off because a thigh problem with only fifteen minutes remaining and although a scan proved inconclusive Warnock has ruled Chamakh out of this weekends’ match. Tests highlighted an issue with the muscle although it is unclear whether the mark was from an existing tear or a new one – the player will have another scan when the injury has had a chance to "calm down." The Eagles face a difficult trip to the Etihad in the early kick-off on Saturday and manager Neil Warnock will need to decide whether Fraizer Campbell or Dwight Gayle – who has disappointed of late – will lead the line.

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has urged Dwight Gayle to prove his worth after the striker slipped down the pecking order at Selhurst Park.

24-year-old Gayle has struggled to hold down a starting role for Palace, despite netting six goals in his brief appearances this season. Warnock admits the former Peterborough player has failed to impress in training and was ‘disappointed’ with his contribution as a late substitute in Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Stoke. The Eagles boss has reiterated his plans to dip in to the transfer in market in January for a proven goal-scorer, and reports suggest his club are interested in Swansea duo Bafetimbi Gomis and Michu.

Crystal Palace put the onus on defending and created a few chances to possibly win them the match, but the will take the road point in a 0-0 draw with Spurs.

Neil Warnock arrived with his team by bus and they decided to park it in front of Julian Speroni. The strategy paid off assuming a draw was good enough for the Eagles and by all accounts, it was. Along with sound defending, a few chances were created, including a shot by Dann that took an excellent keeper like Hugo Lloris to save. Jason Puncheon and Yannick Bolasie provided the most attacking threat while Mile Jedinak failed to find magic from a set piece. Palace now have to see if they can next defend against a Stoke side who just scored thrice on the Gunners.

Crystal Palace's Martin Kelly is the bargain defensive option for Week 14.

After becoming a firm favourite through the opening two months of the season Kelly was dropped by Neil Warnock in Week Eleven after a couple of poor mistakes, and the decision appears to have been the kick in the butt that the ex-Liverpool man needed. Kelly has returned to the starting XI with renewed concentration and energy and at less than £5million the right-back offers terrific values for Crystal Palace's home match-up with goal-shy Aston Villa.
Dec 2 - 4:53 AM

Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolaise is tipped to shine against Aston Villa in Week 14.

While Mile Jedinak is the obvious premium midfield choice if you have the money, not many fantasy managers will be able to stretch their budget that far and so the next best option for us is Yannick Bolasie. The Eagles winger has been superb in recent weeks - including a match-winning display in the 3-1 win over Liverpool - and will offer a huge threat to Aston Villa with his pace, trickery, crossing and shots from distance.
Dec 2 - 4:51 AM

Mile Jedinak continues to be a source for goals as he converted a penalty that would put Crystal Palace level with Swansea City and the two sides would eventually finish 1-1.

Make that five goals in the last nine contests for Jedinak. After a dazzling free kick last weekend, he delivered a professional penalty kick after Marouane Chamakh was brought down by Kyle Bartley in Swansea's box. Their striker, Dwight Gayle, had to be subbed off due to injury early on, and with not much production from the Eagles' wide attacking players lately, the pressure fell on Jedinak to contribute yet again, and he did. His price will continue to soar in the Yahoo game after this performance. He contributes in other stats so he always offers something to investors, but this hot streak has caused his price to outweigh his value and unless you already owned him, you may have missed the boat. In other leagues where he is still a budget option, he is worth having as an excellent fourth or fifth midfielder. Despite the quick turnaround match this Tuesday, expect his name to be the first on Neil Warnock's team sheet.

Mile Jedinak was on the score-sheet once again as Crystal Palace came from behind to shock Liverpool at Selhurst Park.

This was another captain's performances from Jedinak as he dominated the midfield with two tackles won and five interceptions, before capping the display with a glorious free-kick to seal the points. The Australian now has four goals this season and has taken on penalty duty, so this attacking production combined with his consistently excellent defensive contributions makes him one of the most valuable midfielders in the Yahoo fantasy game.
Nov 25 - 8:52 AM

Crystal Palace shook off an early Liverpool goal and gradually took over the contest, with a pair of goals in the final 15 minutes making the difference as the Eagles win 3-1.

Down a goal after 90 seconds, Palace could have been in for a long day but Dwight Gayle leveled things after 17 minutes and the crowd at Selhurst Park could smell blood. Gayle was gifted a kind rebound from a Bolasie strike that clanked straight off the post and squeaked it past Simon Mignolet. The Eagles went into an extra gear in the second half and again Bolasie was at the center of seemingly every chance. Impossible to contain, he was drawing extra defenders toward him whenever he was on the ball and that opened up space for others. He would find Joe Ledley wide open in the 78th minute and Ledley nutmegged Mignolet to give the Eagles the lead. They would put the game to bed when Mile Jedinak scored his fourth of the season with a picture perfect deep free kick that no keeper could reach. Now out of the relegation zone, Palace will look to build off the win when they travel to Swansea next.

Martin Kelly was dropped from the Crystal Palace starting line-up for the Week 12 trip to Old Trafford.

After defeat to Sunderland last Monday Palace boss Neil Warnock sprung a surprise by starting Adrian Mariappa at right-back for the 1-0 defeat at Manchester United, suggesting he was unhappy with Kelly's performance in particular. At 44% ownership the ex-Liverpool man is one of the most popular players in the Yahoo fantasy game, with many of us holding him at his entry price of £1million, so we'll admit we're concerned about this demotion to the bench and will be monitoring the team news over the next ten days prior to the Week 12 deadline.

Frazier Campbell had a golden opportunity against his former team but he panicked and his shot went high.

Crystal Palace were generally effective in frustrating Manchester United's vaunted attacking talent in their Week 11 match at Old Trafford. They could not, however, keep the Red Devils out for the entire match. A deflected shot from Juan Mata found it's way to the back of Julian Speroni's net in the 67th minute. Palace should have been up 1-0 at that point but Frazier Campbell failed to convert in alone on David De Gea from a Joel Ward pass. United took their opportunity while Palace didn't and that was the difference on the day.

Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak was sent off as his side lost 3-1 at home to Sunderland.

Two stupid yellow cards for Jedinak summed up a bad night for Palace, who were deservedly beaten by a spirited Sunderland performance. To make matters worse, Neil Warnock will now be without his suspended captain for the trip to Manchester United this weekend.

Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak can continue his fine form as his side face Sunderland at home in Week 10.

Jedinak has officially taken over penalty duty from Jason Puncheon, so when you combine that with his already-excellent fantasy productivity from a variety of defensive contributions, the Crystal Palace captain really has become one of the most effective midfielders in the Yahoo fantasy game. A home match against struggling Sunderland will provide the Australian with the opportunity of another double-digit return,
Oct 31 - 5:22 AM

Mile Jedinak converted a penalty in Crystal Palace's 2-2 draw against West Brom.

Jedinak continues to be in the middle of Crystal Palace's success and finished this week with nine Yahoo! fantasy points after a huge stat sheet performance that featured many positive and negative contributions. He also committed a penalty, which resulted in Palace dropping two points after Saido Berahino converted it in the 93rd minute. Jedinak is a solid fantasy option and provides very consistent production, making him a good buy in most fantasy formats.
Oct 25 - 2:18 PM

Damien Delaney will be suspended for one game after picking up a red card in Week 8.

Delaney was sent off for two yellow card offences towards the end of the first half of Palace's defeat against Chelsea, and will miss the league game against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday 25 October. Delaney's absence will likely mean a start for Adrian Mariappa alongside Brede Hangeland, unless Scott Dann can recover from the injury which kept him out of the Chelsea match.
