Wood starts for Burnley as Long owners subjected to team sheet ordeal

Following a week of interest from the Fantasy Premier League community, Chris Wood (£6.1m) keeps his place in the starting line-up as Burnley travel to Norwich.

The New Zealand international is paired up-front with Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m), who has four attacking returns in his last five appearances since the Premier League restart.

The Clarets may be short in defence, with Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) and Ben Mee (£4.9m) still missing, but a return for Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m) in midfield means Erik Pieters (£4.2m) can slot in at left-back after several outings on the right wing.

Kevin Long (£4.3m) is the man who continues to deputise for Mee, but his owners were given an arduous few minutes when the team-sheets were announced this afternoon.

Burnley’s official Twitter account posted a line-up which featured an injured Mee at centre-back and Long nowhere to be seen.

However, this was deleted within a few minutes and owners of the budget centre-back were given a reprieve upon discovering that he had, in actual fact, made the starting line-up.

Meanwhile, as interest in Norwich’s squad continues to diminish, Teemu Pukki (£6.4m) is on the bench once again, with Josip Drmic (£5.3m) leading the line supported in attack by Onel Hernández (£5.3m), Todd Cantwell (£4.5m) and Emi Buendía (£6.0m).

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Lewis, Klose, Godfrey, Aarons; Tettey, McLean; O Hernández, Buendía, Cantwell; Drmic.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Pieters, K Long, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Gudmundsson; Wood, Rodriguez.

      Does this make KDB a better pick for 37, seems to be more involved without Dilva in the team right?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        yes

    3. DandyDon

    City gone with their best eleven available.

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years

    2. Rainer

      Pope hasn’t been seen in the 2nd half.

      He needs to get an attacking return for all the BAPs he's pissing away.

  7. Greek Freak
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Pep going all out attack with only Gundogan as a defensively-minded mid. Arsenal in trouble.

  8. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I think Sterling will play vs Watford as false nine with Jesus on the bench finally.

  9. Vazza
    2 months, 11 days ago

    On the basis that Foden isn’t starting the FA Cup game, does that make him a better option than Greenwood this week?

    1. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      No

      1. Vazza
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Haha! No bias there, right?

    2. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Its a little late either way.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        D Silva is playing today. Or do you mean D Silva not playing GW37?

  15. FOO FIGHTER

    1. Optimus.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

  17. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years

  18. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 11 days ago

        Neither Brady nor Pope have ever missed a penalty in their careers.

  23. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Bit crazy but contemplating DeBruyne/Fernandes out for Sterling/D.Silva for 38.

    1. tokara
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Sterling is risky

  24. TheDragon
    • 2 Years

    How many goals will Pope score I’m the last 30 mins?

    1. All de Gea

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

          2 months, 11 days ago

          There was some kid on here yesterday who said that Silva wasn't fit to lace John Terry's boots. I don't think he knew much about football but I think that he must have been a Chelsea fan.
