Late Egan goal wipes out Pope clean sheet as Mee faces spell on sidelines

BURNLEY 1-1 SHEFFIELD UNITED

  • Goals: James Tarkowski (£5.2m) | John Egan (£4.5m)
  • Assists: Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) | Billy Sharp (£5.4m)
  • Bonus Points: Tarkowski x3, Egan x2, Josh Brownhill (£4.8m) x1

With 80 minutes gone on Sunday, it looked as though white smoke signalling another Nick Pope clean sheet was set to rise from Sean Dyche’s Vatican City at Turf Moor.

But owners of the £5.0m goalkeeper were denied a third consecutive set of clean sheet points by John Egan (£4.5m), who slotted home a superb half-volley after Billy Sharp (£5.4m) flicked on an excellent Ben Osborn (£4.7m) delivery.

In an unsurprising Fantasy tale of shotstoppers and centre-backs, Egan cancelled out a first-half strike from James Tarkowski (£5.2m) which had wiped out a clean sheet for Dean Henderson (£5.2m) and the Blades’ backline.

The centre-back slotted in a cool finish after Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) flicked on a well-delivered free kick from Dwight McNeil (£6.1m).

Sheffield United welcomed back a familiar face as Jack O’Connell (£4.6m) made his return from injury as a 55th-minute substitute.

That could potentially spell the end of Jack Robinson (£4.0m) as a budget option for FPL bosses.

Burnley were without Ben Mee (£5.0m) due to a thigh injury, which could potentially rule the defender out for the remainder of the season, while Jack Cork (£4.9m) appears unlikely to feature in the coming Gameweeks. Post-match, Dyche revealed:

Ben has a thigh strain and it is a pretty good one, so I don’t think it will be an easy or quick turnaround.

Corky has a reasonably serious ankle injury which is unfortunate and he is going to need something doing probably. We are waiting to find out. He is going to miss this spell of games and possibly the remaining games.

For both of them, we will have to wait and see. It is not ideal but we have had not ideal since we got back in many different ways. The challenge is to stay competitive, which we aim to do.

With Mee injured, of course, yet another cut-price route into the Burnley backline opens up for Fantasy managers in the form of Kevin Long (£4.3m).

While Dyche appears to have lost a key member of his defence, Chris Wilder now has one of his back. After the draw, the Blades manager said:

Jack Robinson has been great for us but that has caught up with him – [he was] thrust into Premier League action with the schedule and [today] was a tough one.

A couple of boys looked tired but to get Jack O’Connell back was a big bonus. You want all players available, especially those who have played in that formation for the time that Jack has.

He has been one of our main players in the last three years so to have him available and to get him through those 30 minutes was pleasing, it gives us a bit more strength.

It would have been a gamble to play him against Tottenham but we were always looking at half an hour max today. To get another body back fit is good for us.

Just after the game kicked off, Oliver McBurnie (£5.6m) had a decent chance to open the scoring, with his shot from a central area inside the box saved by Pope.

After eight minutes, Erik Pieters (£4.2m) presented Matej Vydra (£5.3m) with a big chance but the Burnley forward put his effort wide after evading the Sheffield United back three as part of quick Clarets break.

The Blades responded immediately as Sander Berge (£4.7m) saw his effort inside the area blocked by a couple of flying Burnley bodies.

The resulting corner saw both a penalty appeal and an Egan shot, neither of which saw a favourable outcome from a Sheffield United point-of-view.

Egan was then inches away from getting on the end of a sumptuous Osborn cross that flew between the centre-back and Pope, who was slightly caught in no man’s land.

Berge was involved again in the 33rd minute, taking up a good position in the Burnley box but heading well over from a George Baldock (£5.0m) cross.

Moments later, Egan got on the end of an Oliver Norwood (£4.7m) corner but the Ireland international was unable to direct his close-range header on target.

McBurnie reached a Robinson delivery ahead of Long soon before the interval but the striker’s flick flew over Pope’s crossbar.

Wilder will have been less pleased with McBurnie’s efforts at the other end of pitch, however. The striker was Tarkowski’s designated marker at the set-piece which saw the centre-back give Burnley a 1-0 lead just before half time.

The second period began much the same as the first, with Sheffield United pushing the action while failing to test Pope in a meaningful manner.

Substitutes O’Connell and Sharp almost had an immediate impact in the 63rd minute, with the defender’s deflected cross just missing the striker’s leap as Pope was again caught flailing at open air.

The introduction of Jack Rodwell (£4.5m) for Chris Basham (£4.6m) saw Wilder make an unfamiliar switch to a back four, with United employing a 4-3-1-2 set-up which almost allowed Burnley a second.

Rodriguez, whose 70th-minute snapshot flew wide, fired a volley from 25 yards after 76 minutes that Henderson could only palm into the path of McNeil.

The winger skewed his opportunity wide as the Blades were let off the hook, just moments before Egan’s equaliser. Dyche reckoned that McNeil’s chance could have sealed the game for his team.

It was a competitive performance. We are stretched at the moment. But you get greedy and we had a couple of chances, particularly Dwight’s. We [also] had a golden chance with Vydra.

[Dwight] looked a little bit tired, it is the first time I have seen him look a little bit tired but he still finds moments. He put a great ball in for the goal.

He found a moment [the second-half chance] when everyone would have thought he would put it away because of the clinical edge that he has got. It drops for him and he catches it a bit off.

Wilder, meanwhile, praised Egan in typical fashion.

I have been critical of John because he gets in some great positions and that should have been his 10th, not his first goal.

But brilliant finish and to get something out of the game in the manner that we did was good. We tried to drive the game forward and I felt there was something in it for us.

Burnley XI: Pope; Taylor, Tarkowski, Long, Bardsley; Pieters (Gudmundsson 95′), Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Rodriguez, Vydra (Wood 68′).

Sheffield United XI: Henderson; Robinson (O’Connell 54′), Egan, Basham (Rodwell 75′); Stevens, Osborn, Norwood (Sharp 54′), Berge, Baldock; McBurnie (Mousset 70′), McGoldrick.

      1. Keep Salah/Mane or move them on for a City midfielder?

      2. Thoughts on triple City attack (KDB+Mahrez+Sterling) from now until the end of the season? Too much of an overkill if they get benched OR a greater upside if all start?

    6. FPL_DON
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      What are your thoughts on taking hits so late into the season?

      Seems like every week a hit is tempting me!

      1. The Rumour Mill
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Generally to avoid if possible as they have fewer weeks in which the points penalty can be paid off.

        1. BNMC
            1 month, 8 days ago

            On the contrary, there are plenty of managers that like to play more aggressively at the season's end, chasing big hauls. As many of us are doing with Kane vs Bou this GW.

          • Mingo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Generally I'd agree with you. You also have a shorter time to fix any mistakes that you've made and need to be more ruthless. I had a fairly disastrous GW31 wildcard. Over the last 2 weeks I've taken 2 hits to remove, Vardy, Son, DCL & Richarlison. I now have Greenwood, Rashford, Pulisic & Salah and I'm much happier with my team. I'm a fairly conservative manager normally and had only taken 4 hits in previous 30 weeks.

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Salah/Mane & Jimenez. Hold or Sell?

      3. BNMC
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Are the more expensive defenders (such as Azpi and Digne) worth considering, instead of cheap midfielders/strikers from those teams (such as Mount and DCL)?

        • Dont give a fuchs
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Is it worth taking hits to make a good team for BB?
          I'm planning to use BB in GW 36 and a good team requires me to do -16

        • unitednations
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          1) what to do as a ddg/bruno/rashford owner with 1ft

          >> Convert rashford > martial?
          >> convert ddg > greenwood for a hit?
          >> save and do one of the above moves next gw for free
          >> save do both of the above moves next gw for 1 hit

          2) Focus on sorting out the issue in Question 1 or stick with those three united players and focus on other areas i.e. Salah/DCL >> Mahrez/Kane

        • Congers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Is it worth attacking the Bournemouth fixture, even if it means taking out prized assets such as Salah/Mane and Jiménez?

          Could mean bringing in Son and Vardy for the next two gameweeks and potentially captaining.

        • ManUnitedComeBack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          With Sterling likely to play as striker against Newcastle does that make him a better captaincy prospect than KdB for those on a FH.

        • ManUnitedComeBack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Manchester United attacking triple up is the latest hot flavour of the month, but for those of us who are stuck in June with a defensive asset is it worth making that switch, considering it will likely be for a hit?

          1. FPL_Sponge
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Not for a bit, but in a similar predicament!

          If your Liverpool / City assets were TAA, VVD, Mane, Mahrez this week would you swap Mane out for De Bruyne?

        • pranavs9
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Hi Joe. I have 2 questions:

          1. Is it worth bringing in Kane for a -4 hit against Bournemouth and possibly captaining him?
          2. Who are the best candidates in GW 34+ to 37+ to consider for triple captain? Going to most probably Free hit in 38+ so not considering that as of now for a TC option.

          Hope you can answer these. Thanks.

        • 2right
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Good old corruption scandal:

          1. How come Martial got an assist when the rules state "Should a touch by an opposing player be followed by a defensive error by another opposing outfield player then no assist will be awarded."
          2. What's with the price changes: Sarr fell 0.2 in one gameweek despite only weak sales? Others have fallen too-fast as well relative to what has happened all season.

        • FPL_Sponge
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Defenders - which defensive assets should we be targeting for the rest season? Man City and Man United have great fixtures, but is foregoing an attacking asset worth it for these explosive teams? Keeping Liverpool and Wolves defensive assets?

        • tisza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          defence really worth any investment atm with mids & forwards dominating?

        • Apollo Sanchez
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          If you have 3 Man Utd already (so ruling out Greenwood), who would be the best cheap forward to facilitate a switch to 3-5-2? Looking at the likes of Connolly, Nketiah, Mousset, Gordon, Long.

        • Westfield Irons ⭐️
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Which Gameweek looks best for the FreeHit chip?
          With rotation at Man City and probably Liverpool, could GW34+ be tempting to bring in 3 x Spurs assets v Bournemouth, 3 x ManU v Villa and differentials from the likes of West Ham, Watford and Chelsea for their relatively good fixtures?
          Should we be looking for the perfect 'fixture swing' for the FreeHit (and make wholesale changes)? Or just spot a chance to take advantage of a couple of good fixtures and bring in differential players and a pick differential captain?

        • rojojojo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Best defenders? Most have wolves and Liverpool defense, but who else should we look at? A double up with wolves? A United attacking triple up seems more appealing than a defender from them atm

        • wulfranian
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          With games almost every day until the end the rotation is certain.Do you think it's wiser to have cheap subs who might not start and use the money on our starting players or it's better to have a more balanced team?

        • The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          What to do with Jimenez? Wolves aren't scoring many, Jimenez might miss a game on daddy duty
          Downgrade to Greenwood or upgrade to Vardy/Kane?

        • the snazzy viking
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          with some teams looking very similar, how important is it to have a strong defence in this part of the season ?

        • scubasmithy
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          With wolves low scoring is it time for a striker shuffle.

          Jimi to kane this week then kane to vardy to follow the Bournemouth defence. Is it too obvious? Kane only in 11% of top teams, I'm expecting that to double

        • scubasmithy
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          With so many subs, is your bench effectively redundant as your big players even if benched will most certainly come on.

          What to do with my final two chips? Triple captain and bench boost

          What to do with Wildcard? Is this the week to play? Do we have enough data now since the restart? Which players and teams would you guys target?

          What to do with bench boost? Free hit? Triple captain?

            Unfortunately, I think the data collected is the lack of it. A bit of a lottery with Citeh and Chelsea/Arsenal too. United seem fairly predictable.
            If you have all your chips I would say you have missed the boat somewhat.

          What’s your view on targeting transfers to captains v Bournemouth with Kane in 34, Vardy 35, KDB week 36, Ings 37 (38 back to KDB v Norwich)

        • Pat Bonner
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          What’s your views on hits at late stage of the season? At what point do you think hits are unlikely to pay off - 4/5gws enough time?

        • FPLShaqiri
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Is the Bournemouth game giving people Kane blinkers? After that his fixtures are average, with Arsenal next, who just kept Wolves out. So despite Kane's excellent London derby record, this may not be a good fixture.

        • FALSE PROFIT
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Can someone advise me on bench value.
          Having 5 subs and a good chance of rotation and early substitutes, can anyone advise me in avoiding 1 pointers.
          How many playing subs should I go for and is it advisable to have a decent 1st bench?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            I've come to accept one pointers like KDB/Sterling this week... they scored 14 and 16 three days earlier so I'd take 7.5 and 8.5 PPG over two matches all day long. It's when the 1 pointers are followed up by 1s and 2s and 3s that it becomes a problem.

              Exactly. I think the 14 and 16 pointers are going to be a rare commodity too. I can do it with KDB but not doubling up. If I knew KDB was always paired off with Foden and Sterling with Mahrez then maybe. I had Mahrez for the majority of the season when it was less likely for a cameo.

          A. Greenwood + De Bruyne
          B. Martial + Jesus
          C. Mahrez + Jesus

            A because Jesus is not a good pick.

            Morning, why is Mane so much better with bonus than Salah?
            Don’t they play in a similar fashion?

            1. Raz Sterling Archer

              Mo tries loads more shots and dribbles,. so gets more points deducted when they don't go to plan!

              Mane more clinical.

              Mané is a better all round footballer. Also more clinical. Salah only has more pace over him

                    How does the early transfer thoughts for BB GW34 look?

                    Salah to Foden and Jimenez to Kane (-4)?

                      think Mahrez is a big rotation risk now especially after a couple of blanks - maybe Pulisic or Son instead depending on finances

                    Jimmy+Salah >> Kane+Pulisic for a hit?

                    Puli could also be Son or Mahrez.

                    Hello,
                    I have got: free hit, wildcard, triple captain. When should I use them?

                    1. Ragabolly
                      • 10 Years
                      1 month, 8 days ago

                      Time is running up.. If I were you, I would FH 36 to load on Chelsea and City, WC 37, BB 38.

                      1. Ragabolly
                        • 10 Years
                        1 month, 8 days ago

                        Or WC 35, BB 36, FH 38 if your team needs to be immediately improved.

                        1. Ragabolly
                          • 10 Years
                          1 month, 8 days ago

                          Thought you have BB not TC, can't read 😀 still think if you replace BB in previous comments to TC, it works fine.

                        Looks good! Thanks!
                        I don't know when to play triple captain, but 38 with De Bruyne is ok or with Bruno.

                        Maybe some double week will be in the future?
                        What with games in FA CUP?

                      triple captain KDB vs Norwich at home in GW 38 🙂

                      I’d WC now to make the most of it. FH36 with City / Chelsea based on pressers and previous game. TC Kev in 38

                      If you have 10.2 ITB then the move has to be Hayden (who seems injured) to KDB.

                    Here is a cheeky little stat for you......

                    After every Man City loss in the league, they have followed it up with scoring 2 or more the consecutive game.

                        Makes it likely he will play something like this vs NEW:

                        Ederson
                        Walker Garcia Laporte Mendy

                      A. DCL >> Greenwood FT
                      B. Hayden >> Foden FT
                      C. Save FT and do Mahrez > Foden & Hayden > Martial next gw.
