Scout Notes

Leicester v Burnley: Barnes’ brilliance, forward-thinking full-backs and ‘OOP’ Pieters

Leicester City 4-2 Burnley

  • Goals: Harvey Barnes (£7.0m), Erik Pieters (£4.5m) own-goal, James Justin (£4.6m), Dennis Praet (£5.5m) | Chris Wood (£6.5m), Jimmy Dunne (£4.0m)
  • Assists: Timothy Castagne (£5.5m) x2, Barnes | Charlie Taylor (£4.5m), Dwight McNeil (£6.0m)
  • Bonus: Barnes x3, Castagne x2, Praet x1

Two of the more defensively sound sides from last season entered into the spirit of the Gameweek 2 goal fest on Sunday evening, with Leicester City running out 4-2 winners over Burnley.

The clean sheets may have been in short supply but four Fantasy Premier League defenders registered attacking returns at the King Power Stadium, while Harvey Barnes (£7.0m) delivered on his underlying statistics with a double-digit haul.

Befitting of a rollercoaster Gameweek, Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) wasn’t involved in any of the hosts’ four goals, while Ayoze Perez (£6.5m) was deprived of an assist as his cross for James Justin‘s (£4.6m) strike was deemed to have taken a deflection away from its intended target.

Chris Wood (£6.5m) caught the eye at the other end of the field, meanwhile, as injury-hit Burnley went toe to toe with Brendan Rodgers’ troops.

BARNES IMPRESSES

We highlighted Barnes’ encouraging – but profligate – start to the new season in our Scout Notes from the West Bromwich Albion v Leicester City match last week.

The young winger made good on that early promise at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, stroking in the Foxes’ first goal from a Timothy Castagne (£5.5m) pass to open his account for 2020/21.

He also bagged the assist for Leicester’s final goal of the evening, teeing up Dennis Praet‘s (£5.5m) superb 20-yard effort in the closing stages of the game.

Rotation and pitch-time can be a concern with Barnes but, it goes without saying, that tends to be more of a worry when he’s struggling for form.

Note his purple patch at the beginning of this calendar year when he hit five goals between Gameweeks 23 and 29: he started all but one of those matches (his only benching came when Rodgers changed shape for the visit of Manchester City) and lasted 90 minutes in five of them.

The Barnes we saw against Burnley at the weekend was the Barnes of early-2020, full of confidence on the ball and constantly getting into dangerous positions in the box.

He drew Nick Pope (£5.5m) into an excellent save on the half-hour and would have likely turned in a superb Praet cross shortly afterwards had Phil Bardsley (£4.5m) not made a last-ditch intervention.

Once again, no player on show had more penalty box touches or efforts on goal than Barnes.

A trip to Manchester City in Gameweek 3 is off-putting but he looks like good differential punt for the double-header at home to West Ham United and Aston Villa thereafter.

Justin and Castagne Deliver Again

While there was no clean sheet for the Foxes this time, full-backs Justin and Castagne both delivered attacking returns for the second game running.

The Belgian was the provider of Barnes’ strike and then claimed the assist for the Foxes’ second goal, which was turned into his own net by the hapless Erik Pieters (£4.5m).

Justin then popped up on the edge of Pope’s six-yard box to convert Perez’s deflected cross and put Leicester 3-1 up.

Castagne – who is now the leading points-scorer among FPL defenders – was Ricardo Pereira-esque (£6.0m) in his overlapping runs down the right flank, teeing up Praet for another chance in the 59th minute that would have sealed a hat-trick of assists.

Justin’s goal, while not with his head, was similar to Castagne’s last week, in that he had made an arrowed run into the heart of the opposition area before converting from close range.

There is plenty of encouragement for owners of either player, although Justin does likely remain a placeholder for Pereira in the long term.

The young full-back still has plenty to work on from a defensive perspective, as he was outmuscled and outmanoeuvred for both of Burnley’s goals and had looked shaky in the early stages of Gameweek 1.

‘OOP’ Pieters and a £4.0m defender

With James Tarkowski (£5.5m) and Ben Mee (£5.0m) sidelined, Sean Dyche handed a start to budget FPL defender Jimmy Dunne (£4.0m) on Sunday.

The youngster was arguably the pick of the Burnley back four at the weekend and capped his full league debut with a goal, nodding in Dwight McNeil‘s (£6.0m) swirling free-kick to briefly give the visitors hope at 3-2.

It’s too early to get over-excited about a bargain-bin route into the Clarets’ backline, however, as Tarkowski had only missed this match with a bruised toe.

The England international shouldn’t be sidelined for too long, then, although the constant speculation about Tarkowski’s future is worth monitoring.

Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) popped up with an assist for Wood’s early opener and his usual positional rival, Pieters, was once again given an ‘out-of-position’ run-out on the right flank.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m) had picked up yet another fitness issue in midweek and his replacement at the King Power, the similarly injury-prone Robbie Brady (£5.0m), lasted all of 39 minutes before succumbing to a rib injury.

All eyes and ears will be on Dyche’s pre-Gameweek 3 press conference later this week for a fuller prognosis on Brady and Gudmundsson, which will hopefully indicate whether Pieters will enjoy more appearances in midfield for Burnley’s upcoming run of decent fixtures.

Dyche said of Brady after full-time:

We think it’s bruised ribs and they can be sore. He’s been carrying it since being away with the national side, and unfortunately got a bang on it again tonight, so we made that decision early.

PEREZ AT RISK

Ayoze Perez has had a hit-and-miss time at Leicester since his move in the summer of 2019 and his position could be in some jeopardy in the coming weeks, with the Foxes securing the loan signing of right-winger Cengiz Under at the weekend.

Rodgers said of the new arrival:

He’s going to bring more creativity to our game. He’s very fast, he’s dynamic. He can beat people in the one vs. one, he’s got a lovely left foot, but also when he’s in there in tight spaces, he can make a pass.

That will be great for the other players in the forward areas, so he’s a young player as well. He’s still got a lot of development, and I’m really forward to working with him.

James Maddison (£7.0m) might have to bide his time for now, meanwhile, with Praet and Youri Tielemans (£6.5m) again turning in excellent displays in the middle of the park against the Clarets.


Leicester City XI (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Castagne, Ndidi, Soyuncu, Justin; Mendy; Perez (Maddison 62′), Praet (Albrighton 83′), Tielemans, Barnes (Morgan 90′); Vardy.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Bardsley, Long, Dunne, Taylor; Brady (Pieters 40′), Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Rodriguez (Vydra 70′), Wood.

    Do you think it's worth to get Alonso?

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 hours ago

      No

    2. linkafu
      • 1 Year

      Nope

    3. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 hours ago

      Absolutely not. Chelsea look so dodgy defensively and Chilwell will eventually come in. Just a hard avoid given he's 6.0. Better to get Digne or even Castagne.

      1. The Strokes
        • 2 Years

        this

    4. Paul Psychic Octopus

      Wind up? That's Chilwell's place and I don't understand why Azpilicueta isn't playing ahead of Alonso

    Thoughts on this wildcard draft:

    McCarthy Button
    TAA Castagne Taylor Saiss Ferguson
    Salah KDB Hamez Neto Reed
    Werner Jimenez Mitro

    Do I need Son and/or DCL in there?

    1. BenDavies
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 10 hours ago

      I like this a lot. Maybe Podence over Neto but otherwise it's very good

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 hours ago

        Cheers!

    2. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 hours ago

      I don't like Mc Carthy
      Is Ferguson really going to take the place of Mitchell?

      1. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        Ferguson is a starter at right back. Mitchell is PVA's replacement while he's injured.

      2. stat sifter 888888
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          Agree that McCarthy is not a good pick unless drastic changes take place. Not convinced by Mitro at all long-term and Saiss is also questionable. Like the Neto idea but just as much rotation risk as with Podence/Traore and if you have Jimi anyway might be more than it's worth. Everything else solid.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 5 hours ago

            Maybe Martinez for villa as decent 4.5 punt - top keeper so good chance save points, not just class penalty saves

      3. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        Id go Werner to DCL after his has played WBA (and DCL gets Palace out the way).

      4. linkafu
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        What to think about Greenwood?

        1. The Strokes
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 hours ago

          First he needs to play and Man U not bringing anyone.

    3. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sorry bottomed of last page.

      Basically I want:

      TTA
      JRod
      Werner
      James

      I am 1.3m short so need to decide which two are more essential and which two to downgrade.

      TTA -> VVD
      JRod -> Zaha
      Werner -> Ings/Jimenez
      James -> Taylor

      So which two do I keep and which two should be downgraded?

      1. BenDavies
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        Keep TAA over VVD. He is still very attacking, got free kicks and set pieces and is always looking for an assist.
        James can be downgraded as Chelsea's defence is terrible and he won't score worldies every game.
        Werner can also be downgraded to Jimenez, Wolves' fixtures are amazing over the next few.
        Keep Rodriguez.

        1. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 hours ago

          James very forward thinking fullback. Once they sign Mendy in the sticks and have Silva at CB I think James will be good value.

          Question is, is he nailed with Azpi lurking?

        2. You've got red on you.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 10 hours ago

          This seems to be the consensus. Thanks.

    4. The Strokes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 hours ago

      Sterling Or KDB ?
      Sterling without aguero can mean load of goals while less assists for KDB

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        Kev.

      2. You've got red on you.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        Heard KDB is on pens.

        This one is almost an impossible question. They'll get similar points over the season so stick with one and don't attempt to jump between them unless injured or obvious form spike.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          Yeah, I think the pens sway it for me. Should be a lot of soft handball pens this season.

      3. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 10 hours ago

        Im going both and dropping Salah.

        1. The Strokes
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          And if you needed to take just one ?

          1. Original Pirate Material
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            Kev (pens).

      4. stat sifter 888888
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          Kev could become a main central goal threat and Sterling could be more of a wide assister. However, the opposite is also true. Whoever is more likely to score more goals but probably won't know that until GW20.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            That won't happen except when they face bigger teams. Sterling is the main goal threat when Aguero is out, and KDB is typically the assister.

            However, KDB's penalties will boost his tally significantly.

          And people are considering not having Wolves defense by picking James over Saiss...

          I'm gonna have two. I don't care that it locks out one of the Wolves attackers. It's where the value is.

          1. Original Pirate Material
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            If they sign Semedo for RB he could be special.

          Question I raised the other day, Coady or Pod for the double up?

          Looks like Coady plus 0.5 in your pocket.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            I'm going Marcal. Coady is just so unbelievably boring.

            1. Original Pirate Material
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 9 hours ago

              Nicked BAPS over Marcal on the last game.

        3. stat sifter 888888
            1 month, 8 hours ago

            Wolves attacking defenders are more expensive though. Very good defensive record but not invincible

        4. Kuzser
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 hours ago

          What to do with this team guys? Last gw was an absolute disaster...
          McCarthy* (Button)
          TAA Egan* Justin (Douglas* Taylor)
          Auba* Salah Bruno ASM* Souchek*
          Werner DCL (Brewster)

          1) WC
          2) Auba Asm-> KdB/Sterling Podence for -4
          3) Auba Brewster-> Jiménez Zaha for -4
          4) Auba ASM-> Son Zaha for -4

        5. jeanrubeya
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 10 hours ago

          McCarthy

          Lamptey - Mitchell - TAA - KWP - Castagne
          Zaha - Costa - Mané - Son - Rodriguez
          DCL - Bamford - Kane

          Any advice for me ?

          1. jeanrubeya
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 10 hours ago

            Steer (2nd Goal)

            ITB 1.3

          2. Jimjam

            • 9 Years
            1 month, 10 hours ago

            I would use the money in the bank to upgrade Bamford and/or KWP.

            Bamford could start losing minutes to Rodrigo, and although they have scored lots of goals, Leeds' XG is low. I would consider Mitrovic / Watkins instead.

            Southampton's defence is looking quite shaky - I would consider Taylor / Justin at the same price.

            1. Dthinger
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 hours ago

              Or to upgrade McCarthy since Southamptons defense is awful

              1. Jimjam
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 9 hours ago

                Good point - yes. Could go up to £5m for Guaita, or stick at £4.5m with Ryan

        6. Flynny
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 hours ago

          Anyone daring enough to go kdb and sterling on wildcard, with no salah ?

          1. Original Pirate Material
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            Yes. I’ll be taking double Liv defence in TAA & Robbo.

          2. Major League Shocker
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            Maybe on a GW10 WC.

          When people write Hamez are they referring to James Rodriguez?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            Yes

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 10 hours ago

            Yes. Because James is a defender for Chelsea and JRod plays upfront for Burnley.

          Considering a 4-3-3 on WC - I think there's more potentially more value in £4.5 - £5m defenders than in £5.5m midfielders.

          Currently I could afford this:

          Ryan
          Van Dijk - Saiss - Justin - Taylor
          Salah - Sterling - Son
          Werner - Jimenez - Calvert-Lewin

            I wouldnt want that bench. Brewster still doesn't have a club and Bernard seems to be third choice so if KDB gets rotated or Pereira comes back in for Justin, you'll be left short.

              Well I don't have Justin in my team
              So what's the big deal in it ?
              Chasing in mini league so risking a bit

            It’s good on the pitch but would try and get 0.5 more onto Mitchell as when he Pva returns, anyone out/rested you get 0, injuries and cards will require firefighting stopping you going after positive transfers. Having 1 playing bench player is worth having. No top end defenders limits your choices if Trent goes bananas but that’s a strategy that could work.

          MATCHDAY BLUES
          Every gw some of us win and some of us lose.
          Every gw some elate some deflate.

          Over the years I have often felt the "pain" of a particularly bad gw and felt some contempt for the many gloaters that almost appear to be gloating at my misfortune 🙂

          But these days I welcome it , really do ! Are you not being selfish by denying
          someone there moment of joy in the game , this game means a lot to many and often offers up only slivers of joy to some so let them rejoice.

          So on matchday if you have had a particularly bad gw log off its that simple, If not rejoice gloat, shout scream do whatever Get Innnnnnnnnn

          The teams that don't have a game during the week are CPalace,Southampton,SUtd,Leeds and Wolves.

            Cheers, this is very helpful! This information should be in a place that's easy to find on the site every week (which teams have a midweek cup/European match).

            Just put into my head after Gundogan test, prob better leaving transfers as late as possible. Add COVID-related yokes to unexpected events like births, bereavements and late return from international fixtures that can impact gametime.

        14. The Mighty Whites
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          Who do we think's best 4.5 GK?

          Martinez, Ryan and Meslier not got the best fixtures and McCarthy's form obviously an issue

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            Ryan.

            1. Dthinger
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 hours ago

              United Everton and Spurs in the next five weeks...plus Liverpool and Leicester in the five after that...so not looking great for fixtures.

              1. GreennRed
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 9 hours ago

                Better defence in front of him than the rest. I prefer your 5m and 4m suggestion below though and Button could soon start for WBA. Avoids a keeper benching dilemma if the 2nd keeper doesn't start.

          2. Dthinger
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            I keep looking for one and keep coming up empty. The only way I can see to do it is to change them every two weeks for a while, but people don't generally like to use transfers on keepers. Might be a season to actually rotate 4.5s, which I've never liked. On the other hand, for the same cost, you could get a 5m and a 4m...

            1. Major League Shocker
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 9 hours ago

              Yeah, I think the 5m could be the way to go with Guaita or Leno. We may have learned the wrong lesson from last year's great performance for 4.5 keepers. We assumed 4.5's would still be good, but all the good ones got price rises.

          3. Blzbobuk

            Worth flagging with number of goal/lack of clean sheets may be worth getting a bit more data(I think lack of preseason is stretching defences/fitness/shape) but agree The 4.5s look tricky - I wanted a pairing but stretched to dcl for the start. Martinez is on my watch list if we get lockdown villa rather than pre lockdown villa.

            Martinez, Ryan next. Wouldn't consider any others.

            Anyway know who Brighton's 2nd choice GK is please?

        15. DannyDrinkVodka
          • 1 Year

          WC:

          Martinez Steer
          TAA Saiss Lamptey Taylor Mitchell
          Salah KdB Son JRod Anguissa
          Jimenez DCL Bamford

          Any good?

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            Good yeah. Not sure your defender's prices but maybe get a second 4m and upgrade Martinez.

          Saiss any chance of changing price later on today?

            I would say so. Managers just making sure no injuries, maybe?

          Lads, is a WC needed here or can I stick for one more week and then assess?

          Ryan / Walton
          TAA / Doherty / KWP / Dallas / Mitchell
          Salah / KDB / James Rodríguez / Harrison / Soucek
          Werner / Martial / Brewster

          Hi all

          Which combo on a WC?

          A) TAA and Justin or another 4.6 def
          B) VVD and Castagne

          Thanks in advance

            A with Lamptey, if fit.

          2fts. auba + wilson -> Jrod + jimenez?

          rest of team is

          Steer Mc Carthy

          Taa Davies Justin Mitchell Ferguson

          Auba Salah Son Barnes Bissouma

          Werner mitro Wilson

        20. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          Don't see kdb as a standout cap option in many games. Leaning towards

          Auba + Wilson -> Son + Jimenez

          Instead of Auba -> KDB

          1. Weasel Boy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 9 hours ago

            I'm thinking exactly the same except with Che instead of Wilson.

          2. St Pauli Walnuts
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 hours ago

            KDB doesn't have to have weak fixture to haul though, so he's always a good option.

        21. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 9 hours ago

          Hopefully Villa defense looks good today, shouldn't be difficult
