The Scout on why Everton defender can profit at both ends of the pitch against Crystal Palace

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 30 of Fantasy Premier League.

Michael Keane (EVE) £5.1m

A home match against Crystal Palace raises the Everton centre-back’s potential at both ends of the pitch.

Keane has claimed three of his seven clean sheets this season in Everton's last five matches. 

While the Toffees have kept out Liverpool, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion in that period, Palace have struggled in attack.

Roy Hodgson’s side visit Goodison Park having scored only two goals in their last four matches. They have managed just 22 shots and 13 shots inside the box in those outings, the lowest totals in the competition.

Attacking set-pieces

Keane’s aerial threat could also prove a major weapon for Everton.

He has recorded 11 of his 13 shots this season, and scored all three of his goals, following set-pieces.

Palace, meanwhile, have struggled to defend such situations. 

They have conceded 130 shots at set-pieces and 90 headed attempts, both league-leading totals.

Everton's match against Palace marks the start of a kind run-in that could reward investment in their key players.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), just two of their remaining 10 matches score more than three.

With his potential for defensive and attacking points, Keane could thrive throughout his favourable schedule, starting with Monday's visit from Palace.

Remember, the Gameweek 30 deadline is at 11:00 BST on Saturday 3 April.
