Hangeland is set to start his second match in a row on Saturday at West Brom.

Hangeland replaced injured Scott Dann (knee) in last week's 2-1 loss to Chelsea and will continue to deputise this time out. With Damien Delaney (suspension) also out, Hangeland is expected to lineup alongside Adrian Mariappa at the heart of the Palace defence. It's worth noting Hangeland hasn't kept a Premier League clean sheet in eight games.

Hangeland dropped to the bench ahead of Saturday's 3-3 draw at Newcastle.

Hangeland played the first two games of the season for Palace and made way for the returning Scott Dann. Fantasy owners need to be cautious as Hangeland won't play every week and his team have conceded five goals in the two games Hangeland started.

Hangeland opened the scoring in the 35th minute of Crystal Palace's 2-1 loss at Arsenal on Saturday.

Hangeland headed home a pass from Jason Puncheon to put the early pressure on the Gunners, although it turned out not to be enough for the full 90. The match marked Hangeland's first Premier League match for Crystal Palace after he spent the previous six-and-a-half years with Fulham.

Hangeland has signed with Crystal Palace on a one-year deal, Sky Sports reports.

The central defender had spent six-and-a-half years with newly-relegated Fulham, but was eager to stay in the Premier League. Hangeland has found a new home with Tony Pulis and the Eagles, and should get every opportunity to compete for playing time in the back.

Hangeland, who was released by Fulham in June, is being considered by Hull City as the Tigers look to add some experience to their centre-back position, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

Hangeland will not add much to the Tigers attack, but his addition to the defense could be worth an extra clean sheet or two. Despite being 32-years-old, he can still contribute to a team that needs help defensively.

Hangeland was released by Fulham on Wednesday, the club's official web site reports.

Hangeland joined the Whites in January 2008 and finishes his time at Craven Cottage with 272 total appearances. The 32-year-old still has plenty left in the tank, so he likely won't be unemployed for long.

Hangeland (head) was substituted early in Saturday's match against Chelsea after he appeared dazed from a collision earlier in the match, West London Sport reports. Fulham manager, Felix Magath, is hopeful Hangeland can return for the team's next match against Cardiff City.

Fulham clearly missed their captain as they surrendered all three goals after Hangeland left the pitch. If Hangeland is forced to miss more time, it will have a negative impact on the rest of the Fulham defenders' fantasy value.

Hangeland started and played all 90 minutes of Fulham's 3-0 FA Cup win over Norwich City on Tuesday.

Hangeland had surgery in December to address a nerve issue in his leg, and Tuesday's appearance was his first since the operation. As he was able to make it through all 90 minutes, he could very well be back in the starting XI again for Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal.
