The Scout on why Crystal Palace goalkeeper and left-back provide managers with multiple routes to points

The Scout assesses the star performers from each club in the 2019/20 Fantasy Premier League season, and what managers should look out for as they prepare for the game to launch ahead of 2020/21 kicking off on 12 September.

Crystal Palace

Vicente Guaita was the Eagles' standout performer in his first full season as a regular under Roy Hodgson.

The Spaniard offered multiple routes to returns, combining 10 clean sheets with 16 bonus points and 27 save points.

As a result, his total of 137 points was bettered by only six goalkeepers.

Ayew FWD 132
Zaha MID 120
Van Aanholt DEF 109
McArthur MID 92 

Despite being limited to 29 starts due to injury, Patrick van Aanholt still impressed going forward.

The Dutchman matched his three goals and two assists from 2018/19.

And the underlying numbers highlighted his all-round threat.

Van Aanholt's totals of 32 chances created and 27 shots were both among the top 12 defenders in FPL.

Offensive options

In attack, Wilfried Zaha and Jordan Ayew had contrasting seasons.

Zaha managed just four goals and six assists, compared with 10 goals and 11 assists in 2018/19.

Yet his totals of 61 shots and 36 chances created were both more than any team-mate.

Ayew enjoyed his most successful FPL campaign, scoring nine goals and supplying three assists to claim 132 points.

Having started at £5.0m, the Ghanaian looks set for a price rise next season.

But if he stays under £6.0m, he could still prove a handy third striker for managers who favour a 3-5-2 formation.
