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.

    Who is going to score more points this week -

    A. Greenwood (likely to play in the FA Cup game)

    B. Foden (rested in the FA Cup game)

    Surprised wood is still on for max bps and I’m still on a green arrow over defence owners, thought there was many doubling up before freehit.
    I will scream if Pope someone stays in bps in this game at the end! Surely not this time!

    Burnley cleanie is only good without Pope BAPs.

    Double up aside of course.

      No saves = no baps

  6. Optimus.

    1. FALSE PROFIT

    2. circusmonkey

      Burnley have no craft.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years

      Genuinely would be double figures, easily

    4. jdp219

      Goals scored for that game and points total for the season would be equal.

      Yawn

    2. Wilshere Knowledge

      My life has resorted to hoping for completed passes and corners.

        😆

    3. Yozzer

      Why do you keep updating everyone on the baps? BAP fettish ?

      1. Homer21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Doesn’t everyone?

  23. Salarrivederci
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Pieters and/or Bardsley into some BAPS or attacking returns ?! 😀

  24. Greek Freak
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Now would be a good time for Tarkowski to be hauled off and Burnley to concede.

    1. DandyDon
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Burnley conceding would be a miracle today so you’d be better if he stayed on!

  25. DandyDon
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    If you kick the ball out for an injury does that count as a misplaced pass on bp score?

  26. Woy_is_back
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    No way Tark injured 🙁

  27. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Pieters and Tark owner would love 5 baps

    1. Salarrivederci
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Pieters and Bardsley here !
      Some crosses and big chances created, and they will pass Wood in BAPS atm

  28. SuperMane Returns
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Tark ok

  29. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Tarkowski back on.

    One more goal from Wood against 9 man Norwich isn't much to ask.
