How FPL Managers Can Benefit From Crystal Palace’s New Signing Munoz

Crystal Palace have made a significant move in the January transfer window, securing the services of Colombian defender Daniel Munoz from Genk. The 27-year-old right-back, known for his attacking prowess, has signed a contract with the Eagles that runs until 2027, with the option for an additional year. Munoz’s arrival marks Crystal Palace’s first senior signing of the January 2024 transfer window.

Expressing his enthusiasm about joining the club, Munoz stated, “It’s a pleasure for me to be here at such a historic club, such a big club as Crystal Palace.” He added, “I’m very excited, very happy, and I can’t wait to be on the pitch. It’s a dream come true.”

The Colombian defender leaves Genk with an impressive track record, boasting 19 goals and 20 assists from 148 matches in all competitions.

In the current season alone, Munoz has contributed seven goals and two assists, showcasing his versatility. Additionally, he has participated in two UEFA Champions League fixtures this campaign.

Munoz made his international debut for Colombia in 2021 and has accumulated 23 caps for his national team. His experience and skill set make him a valuable addition to Crystal Palace’s defensive lineup.

The Eagles’ next Premier League fixture is against Sheffield United, and if Munoz is registered in time, he could potentially make his debut. However, if not, fans can anticipate seeing him in action when Palace faces Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, 3 February.

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are keeping a keen eye on Munoz, considering his attacking potential from the right-back position. With clean sheets being scarce in the current FPL season, Munoz’s ability to contribute offensively makes him an attractive option for fantasy managers.

Having scored 13 league goals since the start of the previous season at Genk, Munoz has established himself as a goal-scoring defender.

Furthermore, Crystal Palace’s upcoming fixtures present a favourable opportunity for FPL managers to consider their players. Six of the next 10 matches for Palace, according to Fixture Difficulty Ratings (FDR), are rated as only two in terms of difficulty.

Notably, Palace will face all three promoted sides – Sheffield United, Burnley, and Luton Town – in this period, which adds to the appeal of key attackers such as Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze.

To Sum Up, Munoz’s arrival at Crystal Palace not only strengthens the defensive lineup but also offers Fantasy Premier League managers a budget-friendly option with attacking potential. The Colombian right-back’s goal-scoring record and the favorable upcoming fixtures make him a player to watch in the FPL landscape.
