28-Year-Old Defender Crystal Palace Premier
Mariappa should make the starting XI for Saturday's trip to West Brom.
Mariappa will deputise for Damien Delaney (suspension) who misses one game after a red card last time out. The defender plays alongside Brede Hangeland for the first time ever due to the fact Scott Dann (knee) is still out of action. Mariappa has one clean sheet so far this season though fantasy managers shouldn't expect a second one this weekend.
