Burnley defensive assets on the rise as home form impresses Fantasy bosses

Burnley 1 Everton 0

Goals: Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m)

Assists: Ashley Westwood (£5.4m)

Bonus Points: James Tarkowski x3 (£5.0m), Hendrick x3, Nick Pope (£4.6m) x1

A Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m) goal earned Burnley a hard-fought three points as Everton slumped to a fourth straight Premier League defeat.

The Republic of Ireland international volleyed home an Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) corner to underline the Toffees’ inability to defend set-pieces.

That was the sixth time Everton have conceded from set-plays this season, a league-high figure, and once again highlighted manager Marco Silva’s Achilles heel – his time in England has now involved 45 goals allowed from dead-ball situations.

Hendrick scored for Burnley as Barnes (left) blanked once again

The beleaguered boss was not helped by the dismissal of Seamus Coleman (£5.4m) for two yellow cards; one either side of the break. The right-back will now miss the Gameweek 9 visit of West Ham to Goodison Park.

The first came for a late challenge on Erik Pieters (£4.8m) which left the Clarets defender in need of treatment on his ankle. He never truly recovered and was taken off after 54 minutes, thus denying his 12.8% ownership any vital clean sheet points.

Only goalkeeper Nick Pope (£4.6m and 14.9%) is owned by more Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers among Burnley’s players, but the combination of this week’s international break and boss Sean Dyche’s post-match assessment suggests Pieters should be okay for Gameweek 9 in a fortnight’s time.

“I am waiting to find out the exact details, but it is a sore one that is for sure. He has tried to carry on but couldn’t quite finish the game, but hopefully it is not too serious. I will find out more in the next 24 hours.” Sean Dyche

Erik Pieters had to be withdrawn at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon

Coleman (2.5%) will definitely miss the next fixture through suspension, although it is his fellow full-back Lucas Digne (£6.0m) who remains the bigger concern.

His 22.7% ownership have now endured four straight blanks, having banked consecutive clean sheets at the start of the season and two assists by Gameweek 4.

Digne’s attacking threat has stayed consistent throughout, but the team as a whole have lost their way as an offensive and defensive force, with only two goals scored in their current winless run – and a minimum of two conceded in all but one of their last six matches.

Digne owners have had a frustrating time with the Frenchman this season

Not that either side were exactly bristling with danger at Turf Moor.

They managed only 20 attempts between them – one fewer than Norwich City had on their way to a 5-1 beating by Aston Villa.

Hendrick’s goal was one of only five shots on target in the whole match, with Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.6m) and Richarlison (£7.9m) both forcing saves from Pope, while Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) should have done better from close range, only for his tame attempt to be blocked by Matthew Lowton (£4.5m).

Sigurdsson was substituted in the 59th minute as a result of Coleman’s red card

It was no surprise, then, that members of Burnley’s backline brought in most of the bonus points, with Pope earning one and James Tarkowski (£5.0m) sharing the maximum award with match-winner Hendrick.

The centre-half topped the clearances, blocks and interceptions chart (CBI) with 11 and won six of eight aerial duels.

That helped the Clarets to a second clean sheet in three outings, and three out of four home matches, ahead of a schedule that suggests more of the same in the medium term.

Nick Pope and his Burnley colleagues are providing regular defensive returns in home matches this season

Burnley might be hard pushed to keep out both Leicester City and Chelsea after the international break, but the four games that follow – away at Sheffield United and Watford and home to West Ham and Crystal Palace – look much more promising.

And if Pieters’ injury proves to be something more serious, his replacement against Everton, Charlie Taylor (£4.2m), offers a low-cost way into an efficient defensive unit.

Such efficiency is less pronounced up front, however,

Midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m) led the team with three attempts on Saturday – a total that strike partners Ashley Barnes (£6.5m) and Chris Wood (£6.2m) could only muster between them.

Barnes is now without a goal in

Barnes, in particular, has gone completely off the boil since scoring four times in the first three matches of the season.

His ownership peaked at 760,000+ managers in Gameweek 5 as a result, but that’s now down to less than half a million, or 6.9%, and it’s easy to see why when you take a look at his output during his five-match drought.

He has led the way for attempts, with ten, over that period, but only one of those was on target. During the same spell, Wood (1.3%) has managed three goals from nine shots, five of which were on target.

We recently did some research into Burnley’s two main strikers to see which had the better Fantasy potential, CLICK HERE for the results.

Barnes and Pieters now find themselves in the top 30 for sales ahead of Gameweek 9, with Digne in the top ten.

Fantasy managers may still have a hard time giving their Everton assets the red card in the coming weeks

The temptation to hold on to Everton assets is still just about there, however.

The Toffees have a solid run of fixtures over the next six Gameweeks, with their trickiest task probably a visit from Spurs – a club as deep in the mire as they are at the moment.

Perhaps the key factor in deciding whether to retain Everton players will be the future of their manager.

The international break could be the ideal time for Silva to reset and redirect his players. It could also be a nice long stretch for the board to fire him and find a replacement.

Silva himself was in no doubt as to the importance of Gameweek 9’s visit from West Ham.

“The players know what we are doing but we need results. At this club, we had worse moments than this and we reacted well. We had a fantastic period and showed what we can do. I don’t have doubts about doing that again. We have to stick together to change things and the next one is a must-win game.” – Marco Silva

Unfortunately for him, the Hammers are proving no pushovers on the road this season – they’re unbeaten across their four away days to date.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Pieters (C Taylor 55′), Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Westwood, Hendrick, Gudmundsson (Lennon 84′); A Barnes (Rodriguez 73′), Wood.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Digne, Mina, Keane, Coleman; Delph, Schneiderlin (A Gomes 84′); Iwobi, Sigurdsson (Sidibé 59′), Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin (Kean 74′).

      11 days, 6 hours ago

      The Watchlist 3 A's are decent.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year

          Everyone going for Wilson but I fancy going for Jiminez, skeptical with Europa though.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            11 days, 6 hours ago

            Yeah
            He'll be in our teams sooner than later i guess.
            Hopefully this EL madness gets over 😀

    8. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 4 hours ago

      Auba, Abraham and Wilson/Aguero/Vardy. I just downgraded Aguero to Wilson to get more money into my midfield.

    9. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 4 hours ago

      Vardy. Abraham. Auba.

  2. akhilrajau
    • 1 Year
    11 days, 6 hours ago

    A. Maddison
    B. Vardy

    1. Grand Thibauto
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      Depends on your structure, but lots of options in the fwd bracket right now (Haller, Wilson, Tammy, maybe one of Aguero/Auba) while Mid assets are regressing, so would probably choose Maddison

      1. akhilrajau
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 5 hours ago

        I have auba and Pukki now in fwd

        1. Karhumies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 4 hours ago

          I'd get in a thord forward now and Maddison in for GW10.

  3. bigdip
    • 7 Years
    11 days, 6 hours ago

    Ryan (Button)
    Otamendi, TAA, VVD (Digne Lundstram)
    Mount Salah, Sterling (C) Cantwell (Dendocker)
    Abraham Haller, Pukki
    2FT, 0.5TIB

    A)Digne/VVD, Salah & Pukki --> Dunk/Soy, MANE & VARDY
    B) Digne/VVD, Salah & Pukki --> Dunk/Soy, SON & WILSON
    C) Salah, Pukki & Haller --> Maddision, Vardy & Firmino

    1. Grand Thibauto
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      Wait on KDB news

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      What about KDB?
      Not too serious not having GW9 but be prepared to get him in.
      I will get KDB for Sterling dependent on Sterling performance next GW.

      1. Karhumies
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 4 hours ago

        Sterling performance depends on whether KDB is on/off the pitch. You want both when he's on, and neither when he's off based on the Wolves and Norwich matches.

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 days, 4 hours ago

          Seems like it but if taking only one it would be KDB IMO

          1. Karhumies
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            11 days, 3 hours ago

            Indeed.

  4. TheBabyfacedAssassin
    • 9 Years
    11 days, 6 hours ago

    A) Son, Greenwood > Maddison, Jimenez
    B) Salah, Greenwood > Yarma, Auba
    Exactly cash, so probably need to them before kdb, son and Salah news.

    1. TheBabyfacedAssassin
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      Team:
      Pope
      VVD, Söyüncü, Otamendi
      Salah, Son, KDB, Mount, Cantwell
      Kun, Tammy
      Subs Lundstram Kelly Greenwood

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 5 hours ago

        Like option A
        Not sure about selling Son before Watford Home though.
        Also, would be nice if you can save some ££ to get Taa IN for VVD

        1. TheBabyfacedAssassin
          • 9 Years
          11 days, 5 hours ago

          Thanks.

          Son maybe benched coming late from Asia?

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            11 days, 5 hours ago

            Yes
            That's a possibility. Not sure they can afford to 😀

    2. TheBabyfacedAssassin
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      Yarma=Yarmo

  5. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    11 days, 5 hours ago

    Can't believe Vardy isn't in more teams. He has scored 14 in the last 17 matches. Has scored heavily against "bad" teams this season and has a lovely run of "bad" teams. On pens and a bap monster.

    1. DAVESAVES
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      Did Pukki > Vardy yesterday. Happy with that

    2. dee_top
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 5 hours ago

      Who to transfer out for Vardy: Auba Tammy C.Wilson?

      1. TheBabyfacedAssassin
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 5 hours ago

        Wilson out of them

        1. Fitzy.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 5 hours ago

          Before Norwich (at home) and Watford? I'd be looking to bring him in.

          1. TheBabyfacedAssassin
            • 9 Years
            11 days, 5 hours ago

            He's on WC

            1. Fitzy.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              11 days, 5 hours ago

              Even more reason to have Wilson then.

              1. TheBabyfacedAssassin
                • 9 Years
                11 days, 4 hours ago

                Vardy will outscore him next 5

                1. Christina.
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  11 days, 4 hours ago

                  Tammy will outscore both Wilson and Vardy in next 5

                2. RECKLESS
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years
                  11 days, 4 hours ago

                  But he can always do Wilson to Vardy after nor wat considering he most likely will score points! And setting up for WC means he wont have injured players.

                  1. Fitzy.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years
                    11 days, 4 hours ago

                    Exactly.

      2. Fitzy.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 5 hours ago

        None of them.

      3. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 days, 5 hours ago

        Auba if any
        Tough choice tbh.
        Really like Vardy though

      4. Klein
        • 4 Years

        After 2 weeks wilson.

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      3/5 away

    4. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 4 hours ago

      That price tag means taking one if salah sterling kdb abraham out

    5. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 4 hours ago

      Pukki to Wilson/Auba/Tammy/Vardy is happening. Problem with Vardy, and to a certain extent Auba, they don't seem to be involved in the game so much.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 4 hours ago

        yeah, I just plotted out fixtures for next 9/10 fixtures.

        I reckon Tammy/Wilson/Vardy...in that order...Vardy from around wk 12 or so.

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 4 hours ago

        I have Pukki, Wilson, Tammy currently

        Pukki & Son > Maddison & Vardy are my next transfers I think

    6. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 4 hours ago

      Wilson’s goal scoring rate isn’t sustainable

      Go Vardy

      1. RFCSPACE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 3 hours ago

        Only scored 5 in 8, it's the assists that make the points look good. Go Wilson (and Vardy).

    7. RFCSPACE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 3 hours ago

      I do want Vardy but I'm having trouble fitting him in at that price. Going Jiminez instead allows me to get TAA and Sterling in GW13. Having Vardy leaves me with 10m budget in midfield where there's no one I really want (already have KDB).

  6. dee_top

    WC team
    Any changes needed?

    Ryan
    TAA Pereira Tomori
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount
    Auba Abraham C.Wilson

    Subs: Button Lundstram Rico Dendoncker

      Very good team.

    2. TheBabyfacedAssassin

      • 5 Years

      Nice team: I don't have DD Madi and Periera. Planning Pereira but too many choices to take Maddi.
      Actually thinking of doubling up Pereira and Soyuncu for a calculated punt.

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 3 hours ago

      I have nearly the same team. Only difference is I have pukki instead of Aub and Sterling instead of Maddison. What is your TV. Mine is 103.6

  7. Klein

    What are people doing with salah? Could do salah to kdb but dont think he will be confirmed fit before deadline. Does salah have international games?

      Sold for Mane.

      No IB games for Salah as far as I know

      In Manutd and Spurs they facing 1 team in ehich manager has already lost dressing room and other conceded 3 against goal shy Brighton. Plus he would have scored if Milner wouldnt have been on pitch which only happens now when Liv have 3 matches in a week. Mane isnt a great finisher and its like chasing last gw points with only 0.5 save

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 4 hours ago

        ''Mane isnt a great finisher..'' 😯

        Mane has nearly double the goal conversion rate of Salah so far this season. Shot accuracy also better than Salah.

      2. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

      3. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years

        Mane imo is better value than salah. Mane looks very on it this season.

            Mane 100 minutes less and scored more points.
            Salah an obvious captain pick but if you applied logic when choosing him the chances are you won't be in the top half million.
            Seeing a podcast yesterday, someone had built a side with the worst picks since GW1. Sterling was captain! Salah must be running close

                He's hasn't become crap overnight, he hasn't done much all of 2019. That's a long time, his role has changed Mane will outscore him and costs less

          I can decide if it’s more impressive that Jay Eggersdorff has Adama Traore to begin with or that he put him in the starting 11 away to City

                Digne needs to go I’d say. If you must lose Pukki, then 2

                  yeah do you recommend Wilson over Vardy?

                    Wilson better stats but...Vardy is a stat buster, on pens, good fixtures and plays for a better team....Vardy for me

                      11 days, 5 hours ago

                      yep im with you on that... just means i need to lose one of the pool defenders rather than Digne to get him in... and I fancy having 2 as a differential with two easy fixtures coming up... (im a united fan)

                1 or 2 for me. Owning Vardy would be great, but Wilson has two great fixtures next and holding double Pool defence should be great for their nice run coming soon.

                      Thinking it's too late for Auba since the next few teams have done well defensively and it allows more balance.

                      Is KdB only enough for city?

                        KDB is captain material. Seems better than Sterling or Aguero.

                        DSilva/BSilva vs. Maddison/Martial in the 7.5-8.X mid range for a "budget" MCity double up is an option.

                        Auba is a "hold/keep" if you have him. I am expecting steady returns but no explosions so not captaining him soon.

                        Abraham, Wilson, Vardy all seem like explosive captain options up front while Liverpool has "tough" fixtures and MCity misses KDB and therefore plays poorly. Choose your horse and go "all in" on one of them?

                          Martial? Liverpool fixtures easier than City

                            11 days, 3 hours ago

                            Martial was the most impessive 7.5 mid GW 1-3 and should return soon from injury. DSilva was the most impressive 7.5 mid GW 3-6. Maddison has been the most impressive GW 6-8. BSilva had a moment of glory in GW6.

                            Others in the 7-9.5M mid range have failed to impress (Son, Pepe, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Fraser not reaching their FPL potential), so people are going cheaper with Mount, Yarmolenko, El Ghazi, Cantwell, Saka or more expensive with KDB, Mane, Salah, Sterling.

                                Martial:
                                GW1 vs Chelsea - Goal (4-0 win)
                                GW2 vs Wolves - Goal (1-1 tie)
                                GW3 vs Palace - Assist, injured (1-2 loss)

                                Man United fixtures:
                                GW10 vs. Norwich
                                GW11 vs. Bournemouth
                                GW12 vs. Brighton
                                GW13 vs. Sheffield
                                GW14 vs. Villa

                                Arguably, if Martial is able to pick up from where he left off, he could be a FPL points magnet and terrific for the price tag even if Man United keeps losing their matches. Like GW3 vs Palace.

                      The season ticker:
                      Is it not viable to update it compared to realistic form atm.
                      Sorry, but Leicester ManU and Spurs are a little inaccurate.

                        You can make a custom ticker and save it, you know? That's the best members area feature IMO.

                          Just tried it. Very good. Fixture difficulty changes dramatic.

                        Why would you ditch KDB? You will want to buy him back very soon. You should be able to downgrade VVD to upgrade Greenwood with 2 FTs and go 3-4-3 or 4-3-3 with KDB on the bench.

                          thanks.. something like VVD + Greenwood to Boly and Wesley or Ayew?

                            Something like that, yes. Connelly, Maupay, Ings, Wood have recently got some returns as well. Hard to choose who to go for. Follow Salah injury status, since if he is not fit to play next GW and you choose to downgrade him to Mane you would get extra funds for a -4 hit.
