Injuries in Burnley’s defence as £4.0m defender gets more pre-season minutes

Fantasy Premier League managers can still take some important lessons away from the recent round of friendlies, even in light of the international break.

Several teams were in action on Tuesday afternoon with some missing key men, while others held onto assets who would rather get into match sharpness with their club rather than their country.

There was a further update on the £4.0m defender situation as well as some interesting developments in the Burnley defence.

Preston 0-0 Burnley

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None

Fantasy managers learned more about Burnley’s defence than their attack in a 0-0 draw with Preston on Tuesday.

Nick Pope (£5.5m) and Bailey Peacock-Farrell (£4.0m) joining Robbie Brady (£5.0m) on international duty, Sean Dyche handed a debut to former Wolves goalkeeper Will Norris. Yet to be priced up by FPL, he was kept busy in a 45-minute outing before coming off at half-time, replaced by Lukas Jensen.

Elsewhere in the backline, James Tarkowski (£5.0m) was not risked due to a “minor knock”, which only adds to the uncertainty about Burnley’s defence ahead of the new campaign.

With Ben Mee (£5.0m) and Kevin Long (£4.5m) still absent through injury as well, it meant 90 minutes for junior centre-back pairing Jimmy Dunne and Bobby Thomas. The two players have now been involved in more pre-season action than any other Burnley asset. It will be interesting to see if FPL decide to price either of them up. 

As this was the first time Burnley brought their squad together for one match this summer, having previously split it across two, there may be something we can read into the fact that Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) was selected ahead of Erik Pieters (£4.5m), who played the last 30 minutes. However, we must remember that the latter still has more assists this summer than the former Leeds defender, so still has something going for him.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m) stayed behind from international duty with Iceland to get some more match fitness into his system with Burnley. The winger has now played more than 70 minutes in each of his pre-season appearances.

Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) was especially lively against Preston and his total of 170 pre-season minutes is so far only beaten by Dunne and Thomas.

Jack Cork (£5.0m) and Ashley Barnes (£6.0m) are two other names still on the sidelines through injury, which meant an unsurprising start up-front for the Project Restart preferred pairing of Chris Wood (£6.5m) and Jay Rodriguez (£6.0m).

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Norris (Jensen 46′); C Taylor (Pieters 60′), Dunne, B Thomas, Bardsley (Lowton 60′); McNeil (Richardson 80′), Brownhill (Elva-Fountaine 80′), Westwood (Benson 60′), Gudmundsson (Goodridge 70′); Rodriguez (Mumbongo 70′), Wood (Vydra 60′).

Millwall 0-1 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Max Meyer (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m)

Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m) continues to be heavily involved in Crystal Palace’s preparation for the new campaign, playing most of the 1-0 win over Millwall.

His most recent outing takes his game-time this summer to 208 minutes, with more than anyone else at left-back.

We will continue to caveat this with the current squad situation at Palace though. Luka Milivojevic‘s (£6.0m) ongoing absence from the team and Cheikhou Kouyaté (£5.0m) filling in for the injuries at centre-back has pulled Jairo Riedewald (£4.5m) into a defensive midfield assignment. If Palace’s club captain returns to the fold, or one of the centre-backs do, Riedewald could be pushed back into competition with Mitchell for the left-back position.

Elsewhere, Fantasy managers can be increasingly confident that Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) will operate out-of-position this season, as he was deployed up-front for the second start in a row.

For the third successive game, the Ivory Coast international was involved in the goals as he assisted Max Meyer‘s (£5.0m) game-winning effort.

That extends his position as the most in-form player of Palace’s pre-season campaign for Zaha, who now has two goals and two assists across three matches.

Meanwhile, Andros Townsend (£6.0m) missed out for the first time this summer, while Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) was finally involved after Wayne Hennessey (£4.5m) and Stephen Henderson had shared goalkeeping duties in his absence.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell (Inniss 74′), Dann (Kelly 45′), Kouyaté (Jach 74′), J Ward (Woods 74′); Meyer, McArthur (M Boateng 74′), Riedewald (J-K Gordon 86′), Schlupp (Kirby 74′); Zaha (Pierrick 74′), Ayew.

Stoke City 3-0 Leeds

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None

There was very little for Fantasy managers to learn in Leeds’ 3-0 defeat to Stoke City on Tuesday, which only lasted 80 minutes.

Played during the start of the international break, there were a total of nine senior players missing including Illan Meslier (£4.5m), Liam Cooper (£4.5m), Robin Koch (£4.5m) and Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) from the defence.

Kiko Casilla (£4.5m) and Luke Ayling (£4.5m) were present although the former, who has not played competitive football since February due to a racism ban, did not have the best game.

Barry Douglas (£4.0m) started the match but only because Dallas and Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) were absent, while involvement for Pascal Struijk (£4.0m) in midfield was only because Kalvin Phillips (£5.0m) is currently with England.

There were more of the key attackers involved in this one, with Pablo Hernández (£6.0m) and Patrick Bamford (£5.5m) both in the starting XI but we do not have confirmation of how many minutes either of them played.

Middlesbrough 5-1 Newcastle

  • Goals: Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Sean Longstaff (£5.0m)

Fantasy managers might have half an eye on teams who face Newcastle in the early part of the season after this heavy defeat to Middlesbrough.

The Magpies could not use the excuse of international duties disrupting their side as they were still able to field DeAndre Yedlin (£4.5m), Jamaal Lascelles (£4.5m), Florian Lejeune (£4.5m) and Javier Manquillo (£4.5m) in defence for this one.

Karl Darlow (£5.0m) was in goal for the first 62 minutes before Mark Gillespie (£4.5m) took the field.

Anyone who had been considering Andy Carroll (£5.5m) for the start of the season, in light of his two goals in as many matches so far, could be a little deterred by his role on Tuesday.

Despite Dwight Gayle (£6.0m), Joelinton (£6.0m) and Yoshinori Muto (£5.0m) missing out once again, Steve Bruce opted to deploy Miguel Almirón (£6.0m) in a false-nine for the first 56 minutes before Carroll took to the field.

Newcastle United XI (4-2-3-1): Darlow (Gillespie 62′); Manquillo, Lascelles, Lejeune (Fernández 56′), Yedlin (Dummett 56′); Hayden, S Longstaff (Barlaser 62′); Murphy (Ritchie 62′), Atsu (Clark 56′), Saint-Maximin (Saivet 68′); Almirón (Carroll 56′).

Derby 0-2 Sheff Utd

  • Goals: Ben Osborn (£5.0m), Billy Sharp (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Oliver Norwood (£5.0m), Kean Bryan

Billy Sharp (£6.0m) continues to make a case for Fantasy consideration this season as he produced an attacking return for the third straight friendly match.

With several Sheffield United strikers missing much of the summer campaign thus far, the veteran forward has now registered 215 pre-season minutes, more than any colleague in any position.

Oliver McBurnie (£6.0m) finally managed to get his first involvement of the summer in this one, coming on for Lys Mousset (£6.0m) at half-time, but with David McGoldrick (£5.5m) still absent, Sharp is looking increasingly nailed-on to start Blank Gameweek 1.

Oliver Norwood (£5.0m) was a key man for Sheffield United in this one, going close to an assist for McBurnie’s first touch of the afternoon and it was his blocked shot that set up Ben Osborn (£5.0m) for the game’s opening goal.

With Jack O’Connell (£5.0m) still not registering a single pre-season minute, Jack Robinson (£4.5m) has become an ever-present in these friendlies. With 202 minutes to his name, only Chris Basham (£5.0m) has played more often in the back-three thus far. Could it see Robinson start in Blank Gameweek 1? Hard to say at this stage, but certainly something to look out for once we start to hear from Chris Wilder’s in the media next week.

Sheffield United (3-5-2): Foderingham; J Robinson, Jagielka, Basham; Norrington-Davies (K Bryan 62′), Osborn, Norwood, Slater, Baldock (Brunt 71′); Mousset (McBurnie 46′), Sharp.

        Scored 3 goals and had a pep talk with Jose.

          Where Jose called him inconsistent, which is something we know as well.

        Was impressed by his fluency in Portuguese and think that will help make him a key part of Jose's team next year

        I dont know much about them to be honest but MP's numbers were very good. Bilic knows the league and they might start well

    Ings & Soucek
    or.
    Adams & Alli

    Keep flicking between these so interested to hear your thoughts 🙂

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years

      First option easily

    2. Morrissey1986
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I’m on Ings & Soucek.

      The 5.5 4th midfielder is the one I’m trying to work out though.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I have Armstrong at 4th, Soucek would be 5th.

    3. Alchim1sT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      first option ... by a mile

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Even with West Ham's fixtures?
        what would your crystal ball guess be on his total points at the end of the season?

    1. Alchim1sT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Might be Leeds new boy upfront ... maybe Che Adams

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Rodrigo - will score well against Fulham GW2 and then...

        Hasn't been clinical for Valencia, but in the right set-up, could possibly replicate what he does for Spain. Need some eye test

    3. Morrissey1986

      Aaron Connolly I got a weird feeling he might do things

    Gawd we are all going to get stuck playing Soucek. I is other downgrade Ings to Adams or Mitro and make a safety net for Soucek failure. Or I run with it and just play soucek for some time
    I don’t want Adams .:(

      Under 8m, there are mids that look potentially as good as him but not better (that don't have a blank). It's an unknown, difficult bracket until someone emerges, so I don't mind having the cheapest one.

      In the same boat, but relying on my premiums

  8. Andrew

    Actually feel settled with this squad, any glaring errors :-

    McCarthy (Button)
    TAA Vinagre Justin (Taylor Branthwaite)
    Salah Auba Son Soucek (Stephens)
    Werner Ings Mitrovic

    2. Bobby Digital

      I moved around some funds and did Mitro to Jimenez.

    3. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Doesn't look great does it... I will just get Adams instead if needed

    4. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Just did Mitrovic to Ings and will then be Martial

    5. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      He will play 2 internationals for Serbia.

      Fulham supporting journalist on Surgery podcast did not seem very optimistic about Mitro starting the season.Serbia play a couple of games next week so we'll get a big clue to his fitness.

    Starting to have reservations on Greenwood and DLC

      I’d say B. Greenwoods minutes are unknown, and DLC disappointed most of last season

    FPL not giving much leave way with prices this season Silva 5.5m same as Chilwell knowing he not even played in prem. I was really hoping 5m

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Just get Rudiger or Zouma then.

  13. La Roja

    Diangana 20M
    Doherty 15m

    Daniel Levy is genius

    1. Andrew
      • 8 Years

      Isn't Diangana going to West Brom?

    Maybe GW1 is too early for DCL but I certainly think he will be a bargain option at some point in the season with Allan & James playing behind him possibly Docoure too.

    1. mynameisq

      Indeed, with service he will get goals. Without service he barely resembles a footballer

    2. bitm2007

      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      James is the one that interests me especially if he's 7m - 7.5m as others have suggested on here.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'm hoping FPL don't overprice him at 8m. 7.5m will be a good price for him at 7m he becomes very tempting.

  15. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Zaha looks tempting as a mid playing centre forward at 7.0m

    A) Zaha and Kane

    or

    B) Son and Ings

    1. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I think this will be Zahas year if Ayew does his job and is consistent or if they sign a better striker who can open up some space for him.

      1. Morrissey1986
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Also Eze who will be a key part of that Palace side.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Palace just don't score enough goals for me to get excited about Zaha. Always seems like he's sulking while playing.

    RTM:

    Ryan - Ramsdale
    TAA-Doherty-E.Stevens-(Ayling)-(Mitchell)
    Salah-Ziyech-Willian-Periera-(Hojbjerg)
    Ings-Werner-Mitrovic

    1. Alchim1sT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      to expensive goalkeeper combo
      Willian is a rotation risk
      Ferreira unproven quantity
      Better 4,5 options then Ayling
      Why Hojbjerg?
      Not sure regarding Doherty under Mou

      4,5/10

    How much is Doucoure usually in FPL? 6m

    Neymar latest player to test positive for COVID, might look to have more than one playing sub hmm

    Anyone else got the cojones to go without TAA?

    1. kime67
      • 3 Years

      no but im not massively against it either

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'm starting with Robertson and VVD instead

    3. 2EyedTurk
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Thought about it, buy keep coming back to the fact that he'll probably get 200+ pts for 7.5!!

  20. 2EyedTurk
    • 5 Years

    Any thoughts on this guys...

    Leno Martinez
    VVD TAA Bednarek Dallas Mitchell
    Salah Auba Saint-Maxim Souvek Foden
    Vardy Adams Haller

    Thanks all.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not sure Bednarek is safe, prefer KWP. Don't like Haller either.

      1. 2EyedTurk
        • 5 Years

        Strikers below 7m are pretty uninspiring to be honest!

  21. kime67

    Are wolves gonna change formation?

  22. mattyb09
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 month, 19 days ago

    Why am I starting to see Che Adams in lineups?

    Yes, he wasn't worthless at the end of last season, but he only started 4 games after the break. A couple good games doesn't change my mind of what I saw of him for most of the season.

    Fun Fact: He played 732 min in the first 29 gameweeks and had 2 shots on goal....2!

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Has been doing well recently and seems to be nailed alongside Ings atm. Might be a cheap route into that Southampton attack and save you 2.5m for other areas.

      1. TONY123
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Also it's important to add that the whole Southampton team struggled during the first half of the season, but they now look a completely different side.

      2. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Even if he is "first choice" to start the season. He will have a very short leash and have Long and Obafemi there to take minutes away from him. Tbf, Obafemi at 5.0 is a lot better dart throw as he had 5 attacking returns in only 655 minutes.

        1. mynameisq

    3. Amey

      No point in living in past.
      He's playing continuously now. Played in the friendlies. Scored. Had good stats.

      I'm looking at him as an opportunity. If fails. Wood is 0.5 up only

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'd go directly on Wood, he hasn't got an Ings beside.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          He hasn't got GW 1 fixture too 😕

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          I'm on Antonio for GW1 and will take the -4 to get to Martial from GW2 on.

    Thought on my current draft, not keen on Salah/Mane

    McCarthy
    TAA Vinagre Doherty Johnson
    Aubameyang Son Soucek Armstrong
    Jiminez Werner

    Nylaand Mitchell Brewster Rashford

    2.0m itb

    Think this squad offers me good flexibility to get any players who may hit form.

    1. TONY123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Rashford to Bruno, that 1m more is so worth it.

    Zaha OOP may be of interest. Shame he is 7.0...

    1. Lovren an elevator
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      how many friendlies did he start upfront, do you know?

  26. TimoTime
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Adams or Mitro for the first 4 GW's?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Adams - least he's in the country training with the team

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Im on Adams beause my team became too template with Mitro now that everyone has him. 6m striker is a punt anyway, not a long term pick, so not too bothered if he doesnt smash it.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        No Ings tho?

    If wijnaldum leaves, is keita, Milner or ox the more nailed ?

    1. Red Red Robins

      Straight swap with Thiago maybe?

      1. Lovren an elevator

        Ofcourse. Thank you

  28. Lovren an elevator

    how many friendlies has he started up front, do you know?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Who?

  29. Jimmy Boy
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Seen Dier in a few drafts, is he supposed to be a starter? Would have thought it'd be Sanchez and Alderweireld at centre-back and Hojbjerg/Sissoko midfield.
