Wilfried Zaha

  • Picked by: 5%
  • Price: £6.8m
  • Fixtures: Chelsea (H), Watford (a), Burnley (H)

Zaha is arguably the most talented player in the Palace team, scoring 6 times and claiming an assist.

Scoring 40% of his shots on target, he’s very clinical and also very creative, making 42 passes into the box (fourth most in the league) and making 48 carries into the final third (5th most).

Palace have good fixtures and a double gameweek against Chelsea and Watford, scoring three times against both during his career.

Additionally, it’s a good to have a player that has a favourable GW27 fixtures (Burnley home). Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all blank.

Maxwel Cornet

  • Picked by: 1%
  • Price: £5.9m
  • Fixtures: Brighton (a), Spurs (H), Palace (a)

Burnley are the only team to have two double gameweeks in a row in GW26 and 27 so their assets are being brought in en masse.

He’s their top scorer with 6 goals, scoring at a rate of 0.63 per 90 (the third best in the league).

The Ivorian has been averaging 1.37 shots on target per 90 (5th most) and has scored 27% of his overall shots.

With the new signing of Wout Weghorst, another good option for DGW26, Burnley look rejuvenated and could spring a surprise in their next four matches.

Nick Pope

  • Picked by: 3%
  • Price: £5.4m
  • Fixtures: Brighton (a), Spurs (H), Palace (a)

Another Burnley asset worth considering is Nick Pope.

He’s made 60 saves this season (9th most in the league) which is a 72% save rate from overall shots he’s faced.

Burnley have kept 5 clean sheets this season, conceding 1.21 per 90 (8th fewest) including just two in their last four.

Their opponents are Brighton, who’ve scored the 5th fewest (25), and Spurs, who’ve have scored the fourth fewest away goals (10).
