Further clean sheet joy for Pope but injuries continue to decimate Burnley squad

Crystal Palace 0-1 Burnley

  • Goal: Ben Mee (£5.0m)
  • Assist: Ashley Westwood (£5.5m)
  • Bonus: Mee x3, Nick Pope (£5.0m) x2, Charlie Taylor (£4.3m) x1

Nick Pope (£5.0m) and Burnley registered their 13th clean sheet of the season on Monday night, with the Clarets producing yet another heroic defensive display to edge Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Only champions Liverpool have registered more shut-outs than Sean Dyche’s side in 2019/20 and, taking the liberty to discount the 5-0 walloping by Manchester City in Gameweek 30+, Burnley have remarkably only conceded two goals in their last eight league fixtures.

It’s the record against the ‘also-rans’ that is particularly impressive.

In 19 meetings against the clubs currently ranked 10th or below, Dyche’s side have recorded 12 clean sheets and conceded on just 11 occasions.

That perhaps bodes well with games against struggling West Ham United, Norwich City and Brighton and Hove Albion to come between now and Gameweek 38+, while a Sheffield United side who haven’t scored in three post-lockdown league matches also face the Clarets this weekend.

Just how long can Burnley keep producing the goods with the odds stacked against them, though?

This was another match in which Dyche could only name five outfield substitutes on the bench, just one of whom, Kevin Long (£4.3m), has ever started a Premier League fixture.

Having already lost Chris Wood (£6.1m), Ashley Barnes (£6.1m), Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m) and Robbie Brady (£5.9m) to injury and waved farewell to the out-of-contract Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m), Aaron Lennon (£4.6m) and Joe Hart (£4.2m) this month, Dyche had to make do without the crocked Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) and Matthew Lowton (£4.2m) for Monday’s game at Palace.

More wretched luck was to follow when Jack Cork (£4.9m) hobbled off with an ankle injury midway through the second half at Selhurst Park.

Dyche did hint at the possibility of a few players returning this weekend, at least, for the visit of the Blades:

[Cork’s injury was] his ankle, we’ll wait and see on that one. It’s not like him to have to come off, so that’s probably not a positive sign.

J-Rod has got a bit more of a chance for the weekend. Lowts, almost definitely not. Robbie [Brady] a maybe, Johann [Berg Gudmundsson] a maybe, Woody touch and go, I think, so there are a few maybes [for Gameweek 33] but nothing definite.

Burnley started this match with full-back Erik Pieters (£4.2m) operating ‘out of position’ on the left wing, central midfielder Josh Brownhill (£4.8m) doing a Hendrick and playing on the right, winger Dwight McNeil (£6.1m) deployed in the hole and fourth-choice striker Matej Vydra (£5.3m) ploughing a lone furrow up top.

They ended the game in a 5-4-1 almost by default, with centre-half Long the only available senior option to replace the stricken Cork in the final quarter of the match.

While the loss of Cork could be significant and their midfield and attack continue to be cobbled together with ill-fitting spare parts, Burnley do, at least, still have their first-choice goalkeeper and back four fit for selection.

While that remains the case, there is always the strong possibility of further shut-outs.

Monday’s match was almost a carbon copy of Burnley’s 1-0 win over Watford last Thursday, with the Clarets bossing the first half, snatching a goal against the run of play after the interval and then weathering the inevitable bombardment that followed.

In truth, Pope didn’t have to do a great deal to emerge with a nine-point haul.

The post-match stats will say four saves made but all were routine in nature, with two of them coming in stoppage time.

Most of the donkey work was done by the men in front of him, with Ben Mee (£5.0m) and James Tarkowski (£5.2m) immense at centre-half and veteran Phil Bardsley (£4.3m) doing a very decent job of nullifying Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m) down the Palace left.

A late Jordan Ayew (£5.2m) header that flew over was as close as the Eagles came to snatching a point, while James McArthur (£5.2m) also nodded wide before the break.

Owners of Palace’s defensive assets will have been left feeling more than a little bit miffed that they too didn’t emerge with a clean sheet, with the game having 0-0 written all over it until Mee stooped to nod home Ashley Westwood’s (£5.5m) 61st-minute free-kick.

Palace had racked up four straight clean sheets before their 4-0 shellacking at Liverpool in Gameweek 31+ and probably ought to have added to that tally on Monday, only for the usually dependable Guaita – who had earlier presented Pieters with a chance when flapping at a low cross – to make a hash of Mee’s optimistic header on the hour-mark.

While the Eagles possess one of the better defences in the division, five meetings with top-seven sides in the run-in does look off-putting.

That goes double for an attack that has scored fewer league goals than all bar Norwich City this season.

Ayew was the main danger against Burnley but his radar was misaligned, with one mazy run in the dying minutes culminating in a wild shot that sailed miles off-target.

The Ghanaian striker might even have seen red for an aggressive half-elbow, half-palm-off on Brownhill in the second half but the VAR deemed his actions not worthy of a dismissal.

Speaking after the match, Roy Hodgson said:

Seventeen shots is good but I don’t think we played anywhere near as well as we wanted to in the first half.

We were better in the second half but unfortunately, we conceded a goal from a set piece.

We did everything we could to find a way through but it didn’t work out for us.

It was a very good header and a good ball in, I’m not going to blame the goalkeeper. He didn’t have a lot to do. All goals are defensive errors somewhere along the line.

Crystal Palace XI (4-1-4-1): Guaita; Ward, Dann, Cahill, Van Aanholt; Milivojevic; Townsend (Meyer 77′), Kouyate (McCarthy 46′), McArthur, Zaha; Ayew.

Burnley XI (4-4-1-1): Pope; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Cork (Long 70′), Pieters; McNeil; Vydra.

    Still got FH and WC, and I honestly think I might go the rest of the season without using them...

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      FH left and using it in gw 38 for sure

    2. Geriatric Unathletic

      I'll have 'em please :).

    3. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Alot of talk of GW38 FH as it is chaos and has lots of goals, but predicting those goals is going to be so difficult

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      WC in 34. FH in 38. I'm planning to do it that way (except BB instead of FH in 38)

    5. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      I think I may end up using FH to change one or two.

      The WC in your pocket opens up for awesome one week punts. If they go wrong, just WC back to the team you want for the finishing gameweeks.

      1. teneighty

        Perhaps getting Kane (C) against Arsenal. Usually plenty of goals in that derby.

        This is probably the right idea tbh.

    Morning all,

    Hope everyone had a good wee
    kend?

    Completely stuck on who to use my transfer / transfers on;

    Pope
    TAA Lascelles Soyuncu
    Mane KDB Son Bruno
    Rashford DCL Jimenez

    Saiss Guen Simpson

    (May start Saiss instead of Lascelles).

    2 FTs and 0.2 ITB.

    Any feedback / comments are much appreciated!

    Cheers!!

    1. LC1
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      Could potentially downgrade DCL to a fodder this week, and then use 2 FTs next week to do Mane & Guendouzi to Martial and Mahrez?

      1. Phlajo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        I have a very similar team, with front 7 the same. Defense is TAA, AWB and Boly - and subs are Saka, Kiko and Robinson.

        I got no clue what to do right now, so I guess the only option is to wait and see. As of now I'm considering upgradeing Saka to Foden, and downgrading DCL to someone else, and then rotate (try and predict Foden starts).

        But, it's FPL, so something always comes up.. Just wait for the last games to be played.

    2. Kitman
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Good Team,

      Maybe Soyuncu > Aurier ?

      Or if you are feeling outlandish

      Sane & Bruno > Salah & Martial
      or
      Rashford & Son > Jesus & Martial

      I get it though, feeling obliged to use the 2FTS as its a use it or lose it sitch

  3. The Man Pastore
    • 5 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    Would youo save FT here? Or Maybe Richarlison --> Mahrez?

    Patricio Martin
    TAA Doherty Maguire Lascelles Kiko
    KDB Son Bruno Martial Richarlison
    DCL Jiminez Nketiah

    1FT / 0.7ITB

    1. drughi

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        This, use the money to upgrade Lascelles

  6. Slitherene
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    12 days, 13 hours ago

    WC 33 | BB 34

    A) TAA + AWB + Sarr
    B) VvD + Taylor + Martial

    Which option seems better??

    1. McSlu
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 13 hours ago

      A. Martial better then Sarr, but TAA and AWB are an even better combo compared to VvD and Taylor

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 13 hours ago

        This two out of three makes A the better option

  7. ElliotJHP
    • 8 Years

    Trent captain anyone? Villa look woeful going forward and no better defensively

    1. Sloopy

            Good team you could roll it but maybe consider son>mahrez and upgrade a defender maybe for the cash over

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 1 Year
              12 days, 13 hours ago

              I like this idea, bring in Doherty, Aurier or AWB.

          Anyone who has their TC left, have you got a player/fixture in mind?

          Thinking De Bruyne vs Bournemouth (H) GW36

          Any better ideas?

          1. drughi
            • 10 Years
            12 days, 13 hours ago

            Would wait on city teamsheet against norwich last gameweek and slap it on KDB/Mahrez/Jesus/sterling

            1. drughi
              • 10 Years
              12 days, 12 hours ago

              The thing is if salah plays 90 minutes against city, only 2 days rest for liverpool before villa

            Anyone with Rashford (C) tonight ? Alot on stake for me with that tonight if I want to close the gap on ML leader. A blank and it will pretty much be over.

                  Manutd have struggled in last 2 at Amex..With the rigourous fa cup on weekend, it will hardly be cakewalk. Depends on who your opponent has as captain

                        Williams to AWB, Aurier or Doherty using the ft?

                      No.
                      Use your FT to get Doherty/Aurier/AWB no need to WC imo - looks like you are going to play 3-4-3/3-5-2

                          I am incompetent to answer that...

                          Got Boly and Doherty myself.
                          Both Doherty and AWB are good options long-term, Aurier and Spurs are to inconsistent..

                            haha your rank says otherwise... Leaning towards either Doherty or AWB. I agree Aurier and Spurs are too inconsistent.

                        Form over fixture, Ings will get a chance and is clinical

                        Consider this, Ings has scored against Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester and Wolves this season.

                            Wanted Rashford. Prefer DCL fixtures/he's cheaper to afford the move.

                                That's literally the worst set of 3 fixtures outside of Pool in the league. He also had an xG of 0.20 in that game vs Watford. I get being clinical and all that, but it's tough to see him getting much of anything in those games. He was pretty anonymous against Arsenal for instance.

                                I chalk his nice returns down largely due to Sheffield United and Watford being crap.

                      Stuck on plans for next GW:

                      A) Grealish and Auba to Martial and Jesus (-4)
                      B) Auba to Jesus, and make the Martial move the following week. This means Lascelles off the bench for next GW.

                      Is it worth -4 to get Martial in for one GW vs just playing Lascelles?

                      cheers

                          This, not convinced with Jesus. He will get chances but can't put them away.

                        I asked a very similar question last week (KDB to Martial for -4) before martial banged in a hat trick. Was absolutely kicking myself afterwards

                            if you are not playing DCL might as well burn a transfer and get Nketiah, Green, Origi

                              GTG, having DCL allows the flexibility of 343 and DCL probably a better option than the 3 suggested

                            Not sure mane and salah will both start vs Villa

                            Reduce the risk of possible rotation of Salah/ Mane and have Martial. Use that money to upgrade Justin to Doherty

                          Jiménez

                          Nice rotation for ritchie/holgate.
                          ARS mostly benched

                            Decent. Pope & Martinez are the opposite of a good rotational pair, so you could save 0.3 if a bench goalie is not a concern.

                            Not that you're in terrific need of that 0.3 elsewhere.

                          Which combo?

                          A) Son & Vardy
                          B) Mahrez & Kane

                              With the quote being about games coming thick and fast, I reckon so. Bruno benched?

                            Morning all. 2FT & 0m ITB. Thoughts on this move? Mane + Guendozi > Martial + Mahrez. Look to downgrade DCL week after?

                            Lascelles- Doherty - TAA
                            Mane - KDB - Fernandes - Alli
                            DCL - Jimenez - Rashford

                            (Martin) - Holgate - Guendozi - Simpson

                              I would prefer to keep 1 LIV midfielder. Probably should look into changing Alli, out of form.

                                Cheers - Just think rotation will effect Mane/Salah i would rather switch to a playing midfielder like Martial and if Mahrez doesnt play i'll have DCL/Nketieh ready

                              First start by identifying the differentials between your team and the team you are chasing.

                              Then asses whether or not they are enough to make up the ground, or if there are any high scoring form and fixtures players that neither of you have that you could bring in.

                              A lot will come down to captaincy, try and second guess his/her choice each week and choose a different option with good potential. This bit is luck.

                              FH probably best GW38, fill your team with players who are fighting for something
