Burnley defensive assets excel as Watford’s clean sheet run ends

Watford 0-3 Burnley

Goals: Chris Wood (£6.2m), Ashley Barnes (£6.3m), James Tarkowski (£5.0m)

Assists: Tarkowski

Bonus Points: Tarkowski x3, Nick Pope x2 (£4.7m), Wood x1

Chris Wood (£6.2m) continued his excellent scoring form as he netted a sixth goal of the season in Burnley’s 3-0 win at Watford.

The centre-forward now has six goals in as many Premier League starts, a level of consistency that offers great value for money in his price bracket.

His colleague Ashley Barnes (£6.3m) is also enjoying some of a resurgence too. He went without an attacking return between Gameweek 4 and Gameweek 11 but has scored in each of Burnley’s last two matches.

Against Watford, his goal came from the penalty spot, although as is usually the case with this team, we cannot confirm that Barnes is the designated taker.

Historically, Burnley operate on the basis that whoever wins the penalty gets to take it and in this case, Barnes earned the kick after a foul by Kiko Femenía (£4.2m).

Wood celebrates scoring for Burnley against Watford

It will be interesting to see if either of Burnley’s front-men, both very nailed on in Sean Dyche’s 4-4-2 formation, will garner transfer attention over the coming weeks.

Up next for the Clarets is a home meeting with Crystal Palace before Manchester City come to Turf Moor and Burnley visit Spurs in north London.

With those fixtures in mind, Nick Pope (£4.7m) and other defensive assets are likely to remain the main Fantasy focus at Burnley, as they are arguably much more benchable than their attacking colleagues.

Furthermore, their defensive potential continues to rise, with the Clarets claiming their first away clean sheet of the campaign at Watford. In fact, it was their first on the road since January, when they last visited Vicarage Road.

Pope has scored nine FPL points in each of the last two Gameweeks

Goalkeeper Pope registered another nine-point haul against the Hornets, just as it was in Gameweek 12, underpinned by a clean sheet, four saves and two bonus.

“Second half, a really good reaction, for me, for the detail in his work, Nick Pope was excellent, he made saves he’d probably make, but his handling, his aggressive nature in coming off his line to take crosses, they are important factors, particularly as a defensive unit, people often think it’s just about a catch or a bit of calmness, but it spreads a feeling around your team, the opposition think they have a chance and a big monster like him comes and claims it and they haven’t. I like the psychology of when keepers play like that. I was a centre half and it’s a great feeling, it makes a big difference. Goalkeepers can bring a calmness. First half he made a couple of saves I’d expect him to make, and the defensive unit kept us in it, without being peppered, but we couldn’t get a foothold.” – Sean Dyche

In fairness to the hosts, 3-0 did not accurately reflect the game as it really was one of two halves. Watford were much the better side in the opening 45 minutes and the fact that they caused Burnley several problems was what allowed Pope to rack up some saves.

Early-on James Tarkowski (£5.0m) was caught on the ball in his defensive third, allowing Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m) to drive into the box and force a low sprawling save from Pope.

Soon after, Andre Gray (£5.7m) held the ball up well and spread a sweeping pass out to Femenía on the right. His fizzed cross looked dangerous before Ben Mee (£5.0m) tipped a vital interception towards a grateful Pope.

Deulofeu was Watford’s best player in the first half

Deulofeu continued to look dangerous as he drove into the box following a corner, leading to a Craig Cathcart (£4.4m) shot blocked by Mee.

Finally, Deulofeu also troubled Pope with a swerving free-kick from range, the goalkeeper palming away just in time.

For that reason, Burnley were arguably fortunate to go into half-time at 0-0.

That fact that might suggest that Watford still have something to offer offensively in the coming weeks as they travel to Southampton next.

Deulofeu especially was a bright spark in the first-half in Gameweek 13 and, with regards to Gameweek 14, is often at his best when away from home against relegation-threatened sides.

James Tarkowski has hit double-figures in each of the last two Gameweeks

However, Burnley responded well in the second half, establishing a greater sense of control over the Gameweek 13 encounter, scoring early in the second period and pressing home their advantage late on.

This bodes well looking ahead to Gameweek 14 when Crystal Palace will come to Turf Moor.

So far this season, Burnley are yet to concede at home to a side that finished outside the top-six last season.

As much as that is encouraging for Pope, Tarkowski also looks good for Gameweek 14.

He has now been the top-scoring Fantasy asset in each of the last two Gameweeks as all of his attacking returns (three) have come since Gameweek 12 – in addition to a pair of clean sheets.

Not only is a shut-out a probability next time out, but his aerial threat could also help expose a weakness to headed goal attempts for Palace.

That said, whether or not he can be a long-term investment with some tricky fixtures on the horizon remains to be seen.

Furthermore, a yellow card against Watford means Tarkowski is now just one away from a one-match suspension.

The £4.2m-priced left-back Charlie Taylor could be finally nailed-on at Burnley

Perhaps a more shrewd route into the Burnley defence could be Charlie Taylor (£4.2m), who has now started each of the last two matches for Burnley.

After their 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United, the former Leeds United left-back has helped get the Clarets back on track and offers a fantastic budget price for anyone looking to double-up on Burnley’s defence, especially in those home fixtures.

“First half, we weren’t anywhere near our best. You could say we were lucky to get in at 0-0. Second half was just a completely different performance. We just felt as though we were waiting for something to happen instead of going out and trying to grab it and make something happen. That changed. We got right on the front foot from the first whistle in the second half and it was just two completely different performances.” – Charlie Taylor

Those interested in the Burnley defence may just want to make themselves aware of one confirmed absence from the squad for Gameweek 14.

Central midfielder Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) picked up his fifth yellow card of the season at Vicarage Road and is now suspended for one match.

Alongside Jack Cork (£5.0m), he has been an important component in Burnley’s defensive strength this season.

Westwood’s presence was important in the second half as he and Cork inspired Burnley’s half-time turnaround against Watford.

It will be interesting to see who fills in at central midfield against Crystal Palace. The more attacking option Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m) may come back into the middle having largely played on the right this season, which might see Robbie Brady (£5.5m) return to the starting line-up.

“First half I thought they (Cork and Westwood) were a little bit off, second half they were very good, the stuff fans don’t always see, and managers, coaches and fellow players admire. I think the strength those two have is doing the hard yards, to make sure others combine to help us win the game. They played their part in that as well, but they will do the miles, all the ugly things it takes for us to win games because we haven’t always got the technical talent of other sides. We have to find a way of winning and do it as regularly as we can to get what we want.” – Sean Dyche

Dawson’s injury did leave Foster and the Watford defence a little short-handed at centre-back

Finally, we should touch on Watford’s defence which, after some strong recent form, crumbled in Gameweek 14.

They came into this most recent round of action on the back of three clean sheets in five.

That looked like it might continue after 45 minutes of dominating the game but it was an old enemy that saw them lose control: set pieces.

Watford have typically struggled to defend dead-ball situations over the last two seasons and it was how Burnley took the lead, Tarkowski nodding down a corner at the back-post for Wood to hook into the top corner.

They were admittedly not helped in their cause by Craig Dawson (£4.8m) having to come off with a head injury, replaced by wing-back Adam Masina (£4.3m).

Daryl Janmaat (£4.4m) was also missing with a knee problem not mentioned in the pre-match press conference.

Watford XI (3-5-2): Foster; Cathcart, Dawson (Masina 45+1′), Mariappa; Holebas, Hughes (Sarr 67′), Capoue, Doucouré; A Gray (Deeney 56′), Deulofeu.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick; A Barnes, Wood (Rodriguez 75′).

        You serious?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          16 days, 17 hours ago

          Did you see the way Southampton battered Arsenal away?

          My mini league rival owns Pukki still (somehow) and I genuinely think he will have a field day vs that shambolic arsenal defence!

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            16 days, 17 hours ago

            As an extension to those thoughts I think anyone owning Cantwell ought to play him - assuming that he's not injured of course. Arsenal are so shaky at the back.

            1. Recklesss
              • 5 Years
              16 days, 17 hours ago

              Cantwell currently my 2nd sub 🙂

          2. Recklesss
            • 5 Years
            16 days, 17 hours ago

            I wouldn't put money on Norwich performing, even with Arsenals terrible back end.

    What would you choose for the blank spots?

    A) Sterling, Conolly (current setup in a 442)
    B) Pulisic, Jimenez
    C) Son, Ings

    1. The Dogs Love Leeds
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      B is the most obvious and safe option. Son/Ings tempting though.

        • 1 Year
        16 days, 18 hours ago

        Cheers...just realised I posted an old version of my team haha. Hud-Od is Maddison, Ota is Söy...

        Fully agree. Can Ings cope with the tight match schedual though?

  10. Soonmixdin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    16 days, 18 hours ago

    Evening All!!

    Thought turning towards getting my squad geared up for the next few GWs and ready for the Xmas period. Have made 2 transfers this week already to shift Mount & C Wilson (-4). Currently I have this:

    Pope Ryan
    Chilwell Robbo Lundstram Maguire Dunk
    KdB Mane Maddison Dendoncker Romeu
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez

    Squad Value = £100.9m (£1.1m ITB)

    Am seriously considering playing my WC now to allow me to restructure, think I should get some Spurs cover, considering swapping out KdB so I can afford Kane/Son/Lucas. Also some good budget options out there and I should probably get a couple of better Keeper options, so suggestions from the wise would be most welcomed.

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      Get to GW 17 somehow, then WC

      1. Soonmixdin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        15 days, 22 hours ago

        I'm pretty sure getting to GW17 wouldn't be a problem with my current lot, but what's the significance?

    2. The Dogs Love Leeds
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      Definitely WC just get one keeper, lose Maguire, Dunk and Romeu yuk !

      1. Soonmixdin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        15 days, 22 hours ago

        When you say, get one keeper - what do you mean?

        Know what you mean about Maguire, the axe has been hanging over him for weeks. The other two have been bench fodder most of the season!

    3. Soonmixdin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Are people here in the main plumping for Son or Kane as their preferred Spurs option?

    2 frees but not sure where to go...

    Ryan Button
    TAA lund Rico Tomori Ricardo
    Mount KDB Dendo Mane Maddison Jimi Vardy Tammy

    Mount the obvious one to go but less than a million in the bank

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      Mount to Pulisic

    2. The Dogs Love Leeds
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      I’d down grade Ricardo to Soy and use cash elsewhere, also KDB to Son or Mount to Pullisic if CL line up doesn’t change things

      Richardo to Soy and Mount to Son.

    Hi All

    Pope
    TAA, Soy, Lund
    Mane, Sterling, KDB, Perez
    Jimmy, Tammy, Vardy

    4m, Kelly, Guendouzi, Rico

    2 FTs, 0 ITB

    Really unsure what to do here?

    A)Sterling to Son and bank a free
    B)Sterling to Son, Jimmy to Jesus
    C) Burn transfer (kinda think Sterling might be much more productive w/ no Aguero

    1. The Dogs Love Leeds
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      Sterling or KDB to Son, if Sterling then Perez to Maddison

    Mates what are your thoughts on Moura as an FPL option? Better than Mount going forward?

    Hi guys who is the best goalkeeper to own from now until New year?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      Henderson or Gazzaniga

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        16 days, 17 hours ago

        Henderson.

    2. sandman58
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 17 hours ago

      Assuming you have Lundstrom then has to be Gazzanniga

    3. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years

      Guaita

  19. Ole Trafford
    • 7 Years
    16 days, 18 hours ago

    How’s she looking? Save ft? Mount to Pulisic? Saiss to Cahill/PVA?

    Pope
    Aurier, Soyuncu, Lundstram
    Salah, Manè Maddison, Mount
    Vardy, Rashford, Abraham

    Button, Cantwell, Rico, Saiss 1ft 1.9itb

    1. Slitherene

      Save

  20. Oscar Slater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    16 days, 18 hours ago

    Why is TAA sitting in second place in the Watchlist for defenders? Is it because he costs an absolute fortune and is operating at a whopping 4.2ppg after a third of the season (but much lower yield recently).

    Just folly?

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 17 hours ago

      Probably haul potential

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      The points will come.

        Hopefully, once Hendo gets out the way.

  21. Azzastaan

    Why does everyone thing Sterling will be better with Aguero? Like saying mane is better without Firmino no...

    1. Azzastaan
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 18 hours ago

      Why does everyone think Sterling will be better without Aguero I meant

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        16 days, 18 hours ago

        It is Aguero out Jesus in. Sterling still out wide on the left...

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 17 hours ago

      Yep strange logic. If team loses many important players team will suffer. If the player fighting for the same spot is injured it is another matter. Like say rose is injured good for picking davies. But if kane and son is injured also then davies will be less good pick.

    Why isn't Djenepo starting games?

      Back from injury so might be eased in?

        Yeah, think you could be right.

  23. g40steve

    Play or bench the ‘Lord’?

    Pope
    Tomori, Trent, Soy
    Mane, KDB, Martial, Maddy, Son
    Vardy, Tammy

    Button, Mousett, Lundstram, Rico

    .5 bank

      I have been burnt by Lordstrum when benching him.

      Looking at the stats only Chelsea hammered Wolves normally very tight games.

      Im struggling with this who to bench and captain same team apart from i have

      Although West Ham are pants, they're playing big derby game that they will be up for, I can see them scoring, so I'd personally play The Lord over him

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Will make a decision Friday.

  24. Azzastaan
    • 1 Year
    16 days, 17 hours ago

    This is my thought process for next two gameweeks

    GW14 Sterling and 4.5 out > Abraham and Pulisic in

    1. Azzastaan
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 17 hours ago

      GW15 either leave same or
      Taa and 4.5 to Rashford and 4.0

  25. Geordie19
    • 3 Years
    16 days, 17 hours ago

    Do you think it’s worth a -4 to take out Otamendi for maybe Aurier or Tomori?
    I ask as otamendi is 3rd on my bench every week and he’s dropped from 5.4 to 5.1 so don’t want to keep losing value. Thoughts appreciated!!

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 17 hours ago

      Get rid, why wait?

      1. Geordie19
        • 3 Years
        16 days, 17 hours ago

        Purely because it will cost me -4?
        Would you then go Tomori, Aurier or Palace defender

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          16 days, 17 hours ago

          Palace have good run of green.
          Like Aurier but red C in waiting
          Tomori playing for top four team.

          Flip a coin.

          1. Geordie19
            • 3 Years
            16 days, 17 hours ago

            I agree with you on Aurier. Gazza is the safer bet.
            May take a punt on Cahill!

    Hard to chose which game to watch tonight.

    It would be nice to keep an eye on the fpl assets of Spurs and City but Real Madrid vs PSG is a mouth watering fixture.

    I am torn. 😕

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You have something like BT Sport Goals show?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        16 days, 17 hours ago

        I actually have them all recording but dont think i have the energy to watch them all tonight.

        It is hard to beat watching a game live though.

    How do we feel about Lucas?

    Reckon he will be Mourinho's main man on the right or will he be a frustrating rotation player again?

    7m feels a bargain!
