Scout Notes

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.

    Best moves here with 2Ft and 0.2m
    DDG
    Taa Doherty Aurier -- Holgate Kiko
    Salah Kdb Sarr Bruno -- Guendouzi
    Dcl Rashford Jimmy

    A: Sarr + Aurier >> Pulisic + Taylor
    B: Sarr + Kiko >> Alonso + Cantwell and play 433 but with quite a few mid options (mahrez/son/pulisic/martial)..feel i might be messing team balance

    C: Salah + Sarr >> Son + Mahrez

    D: Bruno + Sarr + Ddg >> Martial/Pulisic/Pope (-4)

    1. Whats the Mata?

      Honestly C looks the best bet looking at your squad.

    2. Tonyawesome69

      A if Puli is fit

  2. _Ninja_

    Man utd saying they wont pay more than £50m for Sancho. Dortmund want £100m.. not much difference eh?

    1. james 101
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Unreal numbers really...

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years

      He does sound good though...

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      I don’t think 50m would buy his left shin, even in today’s market

      He’s breaking the laws of physics with his Bundesliga returns this season, and isn’t 21 until next March

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Yeah Man utd think they can offer some kind of post covid cut price deal. Not happening at £50m

    4. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      No prizes for guessing which club is going to budge

    5. Istanbul 05
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Mind games from Man Utd, in the end they will pay whatever Dortmund want just like the Fernandes transfer

    6. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      It's all made up by media.

      The fee will probably be close to 100m including add ons.

    7. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Man Utd seem open to paying 75m for Grealish though

    8. Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      The fee will be somewhere close to 100m and I'm pretty confident we (Manchester United) will pay the sum and get him in.

  3. james 101
    • 8 Years
    4 days, 19 hours ago

    Marty
    TAA Doherty Ritchie
    KDB Son Fernandes Salah Martial
    Rashford Jimmi

    Button Taylor Nk Robinson

    2FTs.

    Games still to go, so injuries are possible. If not, I’m considering (over a couple of gameweeks):

    Son / Ritchie / Marty to

    A. Mahrez / Aurier / Lloris

    B. Mahrez / Saiss / Lloris

    Then maybe Lloris to Pope for 37.

    Thoughts?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      That is alot of goalkeeper swapping.

      Why not stick with your keeper and just do Son/Ritchie

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Just got marty in for a few. Fixtures go bad.

        Keeper changes are pretty much what I consider when everything else is ok!

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Or

      C. Son / Ritchie to Mahrez / Alonso

    3. Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Why do you wanna get rid of Martinez? He's been good honestly.

      I'd just do Bruno Ritchie to Mahrez Auriee

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Bruno Ritchie to Mahrez Aurier/AWB/Maguire***

      2. james 101
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Fixtures mate.

      3. james 101
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        No faith in Bruno now Pog is back?

        1. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          I still think he's a strong pick but having said that, I think Rash and Martial are better United attacking assets to own currently and Mahrez imo will outscore Bruno.

  4. Cahill

    pick 2 to start next week

    a) boly (ARS)

        4 days, 19 hours ago

        thanks all

        think hes a doubt for tomorrow so should be back at the w/e

    5. Whats the Mata?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      AD for me. I see Wolves shutting out Arsenal.

  5. spamking
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      I'm second in my ML, behind by 40 points, here's my team:

      Pope
      TAA, Doherty, Alonso
      KDB, Mahrez, Fernandez, Henderson
      Kane, Rashford, Jimenez

      Bench: Egan, Robinson, David Luiz

      1M in the bank, with Mahrez, Alonso and Jimenez being the differentials.

      Any suggestions on another differential or change you'd make. I'll be monitoring Kane, 1st place has Son.

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Would get rid of Henderson for starters.

        Also if you wanna go differential, I'd get rid of TAA as I don't expect him to start all.games now.

        TAA to an Aurier and probably upgrade Henderson to Martial.

        1. spamking
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            Who would even play in place of TAA for Lpool?

      2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Better option?

        A) Richarlison ➡ Mahrez

        B) Richarlison ➡ Foden
        (Keep money for Nketiah to DCL/Ings or Jimenez to Jesus)

        Getting Foden does give me a lot of flexibility for other moves but can he match Mahrez?

        Cheers! 🙂

        1. tibollom
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          dont think he can match mahrez

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Mahrez is better.

        3. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Foden is a good punt but wouldn't get him at the expense of Mahrez.

          Mahrez AND Foden is a better bet with Foden as the 5th midfielder.

      3. tibollom
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Bergwin + Aurier to Pulisic and Maguire? 2 FT 0 ITB

        Taa Doherty Aurier Lascelle JRobison

          Just Berg to Pulisic.

          1. tibollom
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            thanks.. is he injured or just a knock??

            1. _Ninja_
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              Lampard says he hopes hes fine for the next game.

        2. tibollom
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          why not maguire for aurier? better fixtures..

          1. Whats the Mata?
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            Aurier is a better attacking threat, having similar fixtures and clean sheet potential. Not worth a transfer IMO

        3. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Just Berg to Pulisic if he's fir enough to start.

      4. Keeptrying

        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Does anybody else think that GW38 will be more interesting than usual with so many planning to play FH chip then?
        Normally the teams are very similar at that point.

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          A lot peoples old team will outscore FH team.

          1. Keeptrying
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            That's what I am worried about hahaha

        2. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Managers with their current team setup have players with great fixtures in gw38 anyway. Don't think the FH will be a huge differential

          1. Keeptrying
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            Let's see 🙂

        4 days, 19 hours ago

        I have Ashley Westwood in auction league, different scoring (generous clean sheet points with no downside for letting 5 in vs City). Still, 2 goals, about 9 assists, 12 clean sheets, nailed, 5.5m. Never hear him discussed for FPL.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          That price point is super awkward. He's too expensive for a 5th mid considering you can get Cantwell, Saka or Dendoncker on the cheap and not enough to warrant a 4th mid slot compared to the Mount, Pulisic, Barnes tier.

          1. HuttonDressedasLahm

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          4 days, 19 hours ago

          The thing is he's good as a draft pick because you keep.him for the entire season. With respect to FPL, you cannot predict when his points will arrive thus it's a better bet going elsewhere in search of points.

          Guaranteed 9 pointer for Pope for saving 3 easy shots. SHU look awful offensively. 0 goals in 3 games.

        Currently on DDG-Bruno-Rash trio.
        Is Bruno -> Martial too sideways? Seems the latter has the form and OOP, whereas Bruno might be curtailed by Pogba.
        Could also swap GK and triple up in attack, but feel that is too much. And there should be a few cs's for Utd with that run of matches.

          If you have a spare FT then its a decent move. Prefer Tony with Pogba back.

            Got two FT's. and nothing else really pressing (template wc31+ team). So would loose it otherwise. Got to monitor tonight's match ofc.

          Tough one.
          In a similar position with Maguire - Bruno - Rashford.
          Won't be easier after this match.
          If Bruno is rested, it would mean he starts next match, whereas Martial could be due a rest at the weekend.

          1. Pompel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            Yeah, in that case I might wait a week with the move.

        3. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          I wouldn't say it's sideways, it's a good move but gotta be vary that Bruno could easily outscore Martial as well in any given Gameweek.

          But I understand the move, Martial from open play is a way better goal scoring option than Bruno.

          1. Pompel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            True that, just got to trust the gut feeling who gets the most minutes an who will score the most until end of season. Could go either way.

            1. Whats the Mata?
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              Bruno will get more minutes as I expect Martial to come off early in matches for Ighalo. But again, he has the better goal threat.

              1. Pompel

                • 6 Years
                4 days, 19 hours ago

                .. and the pens will typically tend to come late in matches..

        No Pope
        No Ings

        Dropping like a stone so far this week
        At least I didn’t Captain Jiminez

            Who you captain?

          4 days, 19 hours ago

          You can see it as two birds in hand though. Yeah those two scored well, but whoever you have instead might score close to them.

          Not captaining Jimenez is also a big win at this point. 31% in the top 10K captained Jimi.

          1. HuttonDressedasLahm
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            I guess so. Not inspired by Martínez though

        wildcard help please,,,

        AWB Aurier or Digne (to partner Trent + Boly)
        Pulisic or Willian
        Nkeiteh with 5 strong midfield vs DCL as 3rd striker

        1. james 101

          power 5 mate.

          1. scubasmithy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            Agreed, a power 5 - drop 2 from below

            Salah/Mane, Bruno, Martial, Son, KDB, Mahrez.

            Could go Pulisic instead of Son then pick 4 from above, there isn't a stand out asset at chelsea but they have good fixtures, are playing well and are well priced, it's just if you pick the right one.. I like Pulisic but how many minutes will he get.

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              i'm considering salah martial kdb mahrez pulisic/willian

          1. AWB if you're not going triple United
          2. Pulisic
          3. Nketiah and a P5 mid.

        Who would you rather have for the last six games salah or Kane???

        1. olidooley
          • 7 Years

          Mo

        2. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Umm nice question actually. Would still prefer Salah as he'll be entirely motivated for the golden boot but could see some reduced mins.

          Kane on the other hand is absolutely nailed to start all games plus if he looks as threatening as he was against WestHam, he could provide better value than Salah.

        3. Keeptrying
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Salah

        4. james 101
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Salah

        5. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Kane if chasing. But if you can wait to save 2FT's, then maybe Salah for starters.

        6. scubasmithy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          Salah for now, but monitoring Kane

      12. olidooley

        Guys, if you had TC chip burning a hole what GW would you play it.......

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Hmm maybe Salah v AVL or KDB v BOU.

          1. HuttonDressedasLahm
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            I’d save it for a game after a decent rest (if there are any)

        2. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Salah vs AVL looks so good IF HE STARTS

        3. james 101
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Probably when I’d seen a leaked teamsheet

        4. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          When I knew it was 99% likely my TC would start for starters. So that rules out all Liverpool and Man City

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Chance for Pulisic & Ritchie to play as starter for:
        A. GW 32+
        B. GW 33+

        1. Whats the Mata?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          I think both get benched in 32+ but start 33+

        Lampard on Pulisic-Christensen injuries: "Christian felt a bit of tightness in his calf as he came off vs Leicester. I haven't got an answer yet but we will see how it feels tomorrow. Christensen much the same." #CFC

        Hope yet for Pulisic owners.

        1. HuttonDressedasLahm
          • 10 Years

          No worries, I have Masina first sub for Pulisic 🙄

            I have Pulisic(c), Jimenez(vc) on BB 😆

      16. Pep Roulette

        Who do you think gets more minutes for the rest of the season?

        A. Sterling

        B. Mahrez

        1. olidooley
          • 7 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Who knows man....Probably Sterling

        2. scubasmithy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          With Aguero out I think both will benefit from more minutes, of the two i'd prefer Mahrez as the price difference is huge, maybe allows for jesus up front also?

        3. bigbudgie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          I think pretty even to be honest. But probably sterling.

      17. olidooley

        Best defender to get in for 5.4 or less?

        1 - AWB
        2 - Maguire
        3 - Jonny
        4 - Aurier
        5 - Boly
        6 - Saiss

        Have Doherty if that means anything

        1. scubasmithy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          1 or 2 but all good options, I like the Saiss pick if you can do something with the extra money. I also like Aurier.

          I went Patricio and Doherty and Maguire in the end. Hoping for Burnley defensive woes soon lol
