Ledley scored the only goal in Saturday's 1-0 win against Leicester.

Ledley headed home after Brede Hangeland headed Dwight Gayle's corner back across goal. The Welshman has two goals and an assist this season, and should be considered a last resort for fantasy managers.

Ledley picked up his first assist of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Ledley was brought down in the area by Benjamin Stambouli in the 69th minute, and Dwight Gayle made no mistake from the penalty spot. Ledley has one goal and one assist so far this season and rarely threatens going forwards.

Ledley put Palace ahead in the 78th minute of Sunday's 3-1 win against Liverpool.

Ledley placed Yannick Bolasie's cross into the net from 12 yards out to give the home side a lead they didn't relinquish. Ledley is now halfway to last season's total of two goals.

Ledley made his first start since August in Sunday's 3-2 win against Everton.

Ledley replaced Dwight Gayle in the starting XI as manager Neil Warnock opted for a more defensive set-up ahead of the 3-2 win at Everton. Ledley provides a solid presence in front of the defence therefore providing little to cheer about for fantasy managers beyond the odd goal or assist.

Ledley (gluteals) is fit to face Everton on Sunday, tweeted Croydon Advertiser writer Mark Ritson.

Ledley (gluteals) suffered the gluteals injury whilst sitting in the dugout as an unused substitute in last weekend’s game against Burnley. The Welshman has played just once so far this season after an injury during the warm-up ahead of the West Ham game. Fantasy managers should note the increased competition in midfield following James McArthur’s signing and Ledley could deployed elsewhere in the to accommodate.

Ledley (groin) is out of Saturday’s game at Newcastle United, reports the club website.

Ledley sustained the groin strain during the warm up ahead of last Saturday’s defeat against West Ham United and was replaced by Stuart O’Keefe (ankle), who is also a doubt for this weekend’s game in the North East. Ledley has been almost ever present since arriving at Selhurst Park in January though represents low fantasy value due to his defensive nature and a lack of goals and assists.

Ledley picked up an injury during the pre-match warm-up before Saturday’s defeat to West Ham United.

Ledley’s replacement in the side was Stuart O’Keefe and it’s as yet unclear what the nature of the injury is. Crystal Palace missed Ledley’s protective presence in front of the back four as the team went down 3-1 to their London rivals.
