Burnley's Nick Pope claimed another clean sheet at Palace and extended his lead at the top of the FPL goalkeeper standings

The Scout is reviewing every Fantasy Premier League fixture until the end of the season, whether it's noting player rotation and injuries, making tactical observations or highlighting in-form differentials. 

Burnley’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace helped Nick Pope (£5.0m) extend his lead at the top of the FPL goalkeeper standings.

The Clarets’ No 1 now has 147 points, having racked up nine in the Gameweek 32+ win. He is 11 points clear of his nearest rival Kasper Schmeichel (£5.4m) between the posts.

And Pope's remaining schedule looks very promising for his 19.5 per cent ownership.

Four of Burnley’s final six opponents - Sheffield United, West Ham United, Norwich City and Brighton & Hove Albion - are among the bottom eight sides for goals scored this season.

Pope now has 13 clean sheets this season, putting him one ahead of Liverpool's Alisson in the race for the Golden Glove award.

This suggests that doubling up on Burnley's defence could prove a worthwhile tactic over the run-in.

Options for second player

Although Erik Pieters (£4.2m) featured as a midfielder against Palace, his role in the starting XI is far from secure.

It is Charlie Taylor (£4.3m) who is the value pick among Burnley's defenders. The left-back has started every match from Gameweek 18 onwards.

Palace’s schedule is far less encouraging.

They will face five of the current top seven teams in the Premier League in the remaining six Gameweeks.

Owners of Jordan Ayew (£5.2m) should consider Eddie Nketiah (£4.4m) as a cut-price replacement for their forward lines.

Top scorer: Ben Mee 15pts (TSB 1.1%, £5.0m)
Bonus points: Ben Mee 3pts, Nick Pope 2pts, Charlie Taylor 1pt.

Next three Gameweeks

Crystal Palace: LEI (A) CHE (H) AVL (A)
Burnley: SHU (H) WHU (A) LIV (A)
