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.

Marouane Chamakh scored a good goal, but Crystal Palace were well beaten by West Ham at Selhurst Park.

One thing Palace were renowned for last season was their defensively solidity, but that was nowhere to be seen against the Hammers. They were completely outplayed in the first half, and were eventually beaten 3-1 despite a good strike by Chamakh. The Eagles have lost their first two games and desperately need a new manager before a poor start to the season becomes a crisis.

Crystal Palace's Martin Kelly is the bargain of Week 2, available at just £1million in the Yahoo Fantasy Premier League game.

Kelly was recently signed from Liverpool, is set to start on the right of the defence, has a good chance of helping Crystal Palace keep a clean sheet against West Ham and costs just £1million in the Yahoo game. What more do you need to know? He should be in your squad and on the bench at the very least.

Bookmakers have suspended betting on Malky Mackay becoming the next Crystal Palace manager.

The majority of the UK sports media are reporting this as pretty much done, with Palace chairman Steve Parish set to appoint ex-Cardiff manager Malky Mackay to replace Tony Pulis. If confirmed, Mackay would join up with Cardiff's former head of recruitment Iain Moody at Selhurst Park, with the task of keeping the Eagles in the Premier League.

Mile Jedinak was one of the star performers in last season's Yahoo fantasy game and he continued that form against Arsenal on Saturday.

Jedinak picks up very few points for attacking contributions, but it doesn't matter when you're as productive on the defensive side. Last season was all about the tackles, interceptions and blocks, and Saturday was no different. The Australian captain intercepted five passes, won six tackles, blocked a shot and returned a very handy 13 fantasy points in the Yahoo game. If this form continues he'll remain an excellent pick, no matter the opponent.

Former Fulham captain started his first match for Crystal Palace and scored their lone goal as the fell 2-1 to Arsenal late.

Things looked positive for the Eagles just days after Tony Pulis left the club unexpectedly. One of Pulis' acquisitions, Brede Hangeland, opened the scoring and put his new club up 1-0. It looked like the lead would survive until halftime but the Eagles conceded a Laurent Koscielny headed just before the half and then, just when they thought they might pick up a good away point they let in an Aaron Ramsey late winner.

Tony Pulis has reportedly left Crystal Palace according to Sky Sports.

The Crystal Palace manager has left the club just two days before the start of the season after meeting with the club's co-owner earlier today. Pulis is a great manager but hasn't been able to get along with management and the two sides have parted ways. Pulis wanted to attract some talent to Palace this summer but the club were insubordinate and have not brought in any of his target players. This news puts a huge increase in the value of Arsenal players this weekend and decreases the value of Crystal Palace players' stock.

Martin Kelly has Tweeted out that his move from Liverpool to Crystal Palace on a permanent move has been completed.

The move is a boon for Kelly's projected playing time as well as for fantasy managers in the Yahoo game who can pick up a potential starter for the price of 1.00 (he's an attractive-but-not-rock-bottom 4.5 in the PL.com format). What remains to be seen is how Tony Pulis shuffles the deck with Kelly and Brede Hangeland having arrived since last season. If Hangeland and Kelly go into the starting line-up then Joel Ward may move up into midfield meaning that all three players have big fantasy value. The worst case scenario would be Ward and Kelly rotating at uncertain intervals.

In an effort to actually see the pitch, Martin Kelly is reportedly close to a move from Liverpool to Crystal Palace.

According to the Daily Mail, the right back has been told he can leave Anfield given the presence of Javier Manquillo, Glen Johnson and Jon Flanagan ahead of him at the right back position. A move to Crystal Palace would offer at least the hope of playing time given the presence of mostly makeshift right backs at Selhurst Park last season. Adrian Mariappa and Joel Ward are both capable of playing right back but both are more comfortable playing centrally. If Kelly makes the move and can regain both health and form then Palace could be stronger in multiple positions for the move. Oh, and Yahoo! fantasy managers can be excited by the prospect of a 1.00 player scoring points on the bench.

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.

Glenn Murray scored again but Crystal Palace were defeated 3-2 by Brentford in an entertaining friendly.

Palace had initially gone 2-0 behind before fighting back thanks to goals from Murray and Marouane Chamakh. As we've mentioned here previously, Murray's return to full fitness after a full pre-season is a huge boost for the Eagles, as the striker missed the majority of the last season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury. Brentford ended up winning this one thanks to a late goal, but it was a good work out for a strong Palace side.

In a very Tony Pulis move, Crystal Palace have moved to fortify their central defense with Brede Hangeland.

The move will add another veteran physical presence to the Palace defense as they look to build on an exceptional second half of last season after Tony Pulis took over. With Hangeland's health in question over the last two seasons he may be better suited to a reserve role but on a spot basis Pulis will hope he can rediscover the form that made him widely sought-after a few seasons ago.

Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell has joined Crystal Palace.

Sky Sports had already reported that a fee had been agreed between Crystal Palace and Cardiff, before Premier League new-boys Leicester City tried to gazump the deal by meeting Campbell's release clause. However, talks with the Foxes collapsed and the BBC have now confirmed that a £900,000 deal taking Campbell to Selhurst Park has been completed.

Glenn Murray and Jake Gray were on target as Crystal Palace began their US tour with a 2-2 stalemate against Columbus Crew.

Murray continued his solid start to pre-season with his third goal in two games, as Palace were held to a draw in Ohio. The striker missed the majority of the Eagles' return to the Premier League last season as he recovered from a cruciate ligament injury, but he's looking sharp as Tony Pulis continued to ease him back in with another 45 minutes of action. As the club's designated penalty taker, Murray could prove a handy budget option for the Yahoo fantasy game, priced at less than £3million.
