Mee boosts Burnley clean sheet potential as Welbeck assumes Maupay’s role

Brighton 0-0 Burnley

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus points: Joël Veltman x3 (£4.3m), Nick Pope x2 (£5.4m), Charlie Taylor x2 (£4.5m)

YOU’LL NEVER FIND ANOTHER LIKE MEE-E-EE

Ben Mee‘s (£4.9m) return from injury has boosted the clean sheet potential of Burnley’s key defensive Fantasy Premier League assets.

The centre-back made his first appearance of the campaign in the Clarets’ 0-0 draw with Brighton, riding his luck through an early slip before going on to provide a solid presence at the back alongside James Tarkowski (£5.4m).

While Sean Dyche’s men are struggling to light up performances going forward, their defensive displays are becoming increasingly encouraging once more.

After shelling out seven goals in their first three matches of the season, Burnley have now conceded once or fewer three of their last four.

During that time, they have kept out an admittedly poor West Bromwich Albion side, stifled an in-form Tottenham outfit and now, with the help of Mee, consigned Brighton to their first blank of the season.

“The nature of how we’ve had to go through the Premier League, we’ve had to defend very well, which we did tonight, diligently, and we’ve had to try and create when we could. We’ve looked, Chelsea game aside, strong in our shape and our diligence defensively, and we have found chances.” – Sean Dyche

ECONOMIES OF POPE

Burnley’s steady defensive improvements continue to boost the points potential for goalkeeper Nick Pope (£5.4m).

Still owned by 10.8% of Fantasy managers, he displayed his all-round ability to pull in returns from multiple angles in the draw with Brighton.

For the third time in four matches, he earned an additional save point, having made three stops, while his total of five bonus in that time is more than any other Burnley asset has managed all season.

Meanwhile, despite his price hike for 2020/21, even at £5.4m Pope is still offering the best value among his colleagues this season.

A total of 5.4 points per million spent is the highest among Clarets, enough to keep him ahead of Taylor on 4.9.

However, Pope will have to work hard to compete with the likes of Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) and Emiliano Martínez (£4.8m) in this category.

His value for the season currently ranks sixth-best among goalkeepers, with Southampton’s and Aston Villa’s shot-stoppers leading the way on 7.3 and 7.1 respectively.

DAT GUY

Despite Brighton failing to score for the first time this season, there were glimpses of potential in a full debut for Danny Welbeck (£5.5m).

It was the former Manchester United and Arsenal striker’s first start for the Seagulls and he shouldered the responsibility for the Seagulls’ goal threat on the night.

“(Welbeck) is in good shape. He’s only been with us a short time but he has impressed. He’s been stronger and stronger every day.” – Graham Potter

Linking well with former England colleague Adam Lallana (£6.2m), Welbeck’s chances were not necessarily clear cut, but, at the very least, it is interesting to note that he became the focus for Brighton’s attacks, even with Neal Maupay (£6.5m) back in the team after his unexplained Gameweek 7 absence.

But the fact that Welbeck clearly outperformed Maupay is worth keeping an eye on for the Frenchman’s 4.9% ownership.

POTTER ROULETTE

Graham Potter’s team selections continue to perplex Fantasy managers, who watched Mat Ryan (£4.5m) come straight back into the team following his baffling absence at Spurs.

After 58,728 sales and sat on the bench of another half a million managers, the Australian picked up his first clean sheet since Gameweek 2.

“I felt that he deserved a breather. He’s played a lot of football last two or three years. He’s an important player for us so the thought was to use him tonight.” – Graham Potter

Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) was the latest Seagull to go missing, revealed to have suffered a thigh injury in the build-up to Gameweek 8.

“It’s an adductor and we are hopeful that maybe the other side of the international break he could be available. He only did it a day ago so we need to give it a bit of time to see how it settles down. The initial diagnosis is quite positive.” – Graham Potter

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-5-2): Ryan; Webster, White, Veltman (Jahanbakhsh 83′); Burn, Lallana, Bissouma, Groß; Maupay, Welbeck (Connolly 86′).

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Brownhill, Westwood, Brady; A Barnes (Rodriguez 70′), Wood (Vydra 83′).

    Ings to Wilson, what a move. Hi Antonio, hope you are fit after the international games!

      The injury didn't look too serious. With a bit of luck he's grand for next gwk.

    2. Flynniesta

      I was always going Ings to Adams this week. Then I got greedy thinking about Wilson’s penalty taking duties. 🙁

    If I hadnt made a move since gw 1 I would have been on 450 Points, seven gameweeks later and countless hours of tinkering, wildcard and 7 transfers I'm now on 465 Points lol

    1. GE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I’m currently on 385, my GW1 would brought me 358 🙂

    2. teneighty
      • 5 Years

      I have less points because of my transfers. So lol at me I guess.

    3. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I'd be 40-50 points better off if I hadn't logged in since making my GW1 team. And that would have been with Auba(c)

  5. Flynny

    Morning.....if you were struggling badly at the bottom of your mini league - and most of the people about you had grealish - would you look to buy him for villas good run of fixtures. Or would you look elsewhere for a differential?

    Grealish looks quite an obvious transfer in for me gw9. But its not going to help me catch my rivals....

    Already have Watkins if that matter ...thanks

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Get grealish

    2. Hot Toddy

      Concerns about mini league position at this stage is a huge error.

      Golden rule

      Dont look what ML rivals are doing till GW35

      1. Party time
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Yes

      2. Party time
        • 2 Years

        gw 30 imo

      3. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        I disagree with that. As a player who plays this game solely for cash leagues and has been reasonably successful In terms of profit a i think knowing how your rivals play and trying to work out what they are doing is huge and just as tactical as choosing your team . Especially if defending a lead . That is just my opinion though

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 20 days ago

          In cash leagues too but i dont particularly base nmy decision until about 2nd wc or chips and dgws come into play. I think it makes sense to just get the better players at this stage of the season regardless of who has them. Plentyy of opportunities will come dont want to dig an even bigger hole

        2. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          If you are in big cash leagues where the real money is you basically have to play as if you are playing for OR as there's too many opponents to analyse

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            It is learning how your rivals play for me and for that you need to look at their moves . Over the years with the same players you get a feeling for the type of player they are. I honestly don't even look at OR. My mini leagues status tells me how well i am doing for my own mission. I have made many a decision based on what my rivals are doing and weighing up where it would leave me. To predict what they may do you have to know how they play. I get people play for different reasons but i would disagree with ignoring mini leagues until late being a golden rule

          2. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 20 days ago

            I don't tend to join cash leagues with more than 20 to 25 players though either. Unless its a charity one

    4. Ninjaa
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Grealish is going to be essential over the next few weeks . So if you've not got him and rivals have you'll fall further behind

    5. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      That’s a tough game for Grealish. He would have to chase Lamptey all day

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Cheers

        Have had my eye on Kane to martial.

        But sensible would be son to grealish...thanks

    6. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I think he's a stand out option. Form and fixtures on his side. Odds are you will fall further behind by not getting him in.

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Cheers......

        Plan had been Lane to martial gw9.

        Freeing up funds for son to kdb gw10.

        Son to grealish means I need to take a hit to get kdb gw10.... plenty of time to ponder....thanks

    7. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Watkins is the clue. If you believe grealish to do well, your rivals gave him, Watkins is your sword against then if you also have grealish. Backside is obv if villa going bad.

        Very tough question

        A, B and H

        I know fixtures are challenging for Spurs but their assets are significantly underpriced

          I know tough decisions to make by FPL managers during and after IB

          1. Vazza
              2 months, 20 days ago

              Mourinho is silently trying to win the league and Spurs certainly have the players to do it.

                They will win Europa but not sure PL

          Well on my WC team I will certainly have Son and KdB. I think Utd are a bit of a wait and see at the moment.

                yes, something between 1 minute and 21 minutes

            3. fusen

              2 months, 20 days ago

              Is anyone impressed with sub £8m strikers?

              I have Wilson at the moment and *if* his injury his bad and I needed to transfer him out I'm looking at the available strikers for the money and thinking... Where on earth do I go?

              I feel it's an awful bunch to pick from.

              Only 10 players under 8m have scored more than 20 points in 7 games...

              That's a terrible rate for most of the options and those that have scored more than 20 mostly either aren't actually very good strikers or have terrible fixture runs.

              May as well go super cheap and spend the money elsewhere

              1. Collie01
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 20 days ago

                I think there's actually decent value in mid price strikers. Bamford, Antonio, DCL, Richarlison, Adams all decent options imo.

                1. fusen
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 20 days ago

                  Everyone has DCL so I exclude him and Antonio appears to be long term injured.

                  You're then left with Che who is in a purple patch but had bad fixtures and bamford and ritch are going to be very hit and mix if you play them as a solid starter every week.

              Out of the box options are also welcomed.

              Thanks

                  You’ll be struggling at that price. Lewis now 4.3 which could be nice

                    Can't afford. I need to downgrade Robbo to afford Sterling and KDB. I prefer Kilman ar 4.3 but I can afford max 4.0

                Just realised I can’t get Ollie Watkins as I’ve got jed steer to go with Martinez and grealish!! Villas fixtures look so good. Can I justify a -4 just to take steer out?!

                1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 20 days ago

                  if watkins scores 4 pts more than the alternative than yes

                  1. Pat Bonner

                    2 months, 20 days ago

                    That’s what I’m thinking as can set and forget Watkins long term with those fixtures and hope the -4 pays off

                  Oh yeah. I hadn't figured that either.

                    It’s frustrating as didn’t think too much about it when I put in 2 villa keepers! Maybe I’m too optimistic on villa but those fixtures are amazing

                      Son salah grealish Bowen trossard Kane DCL Brewster

                      Looking at Kane and trossard to Watkins and kdb/sterling (might get Bruno for 1 week as captain)

                        2fts i take it?

                        Kane & Steer to Watkins & cheapie (capt Salah)
                        Tross to City the next week?

                          Cheers that makes sense and could be the sensible move, or just remove steer this week and keep Kane. Man U will prob lose to wba anyway!

                            great call! roll the 2nd ft & do big moves as fixtures really turn

                            you reckon Ole goes soon?

                      This is why I got double Villa keepers and Jacky, so that I couldnt get tempted to triple up on Villa

                      Same here with Grealish instead 😀

                      Rather have Bamford or Brewster as fodder and pimp up midfield?

                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 20 days ago

                        Bamford is the other option, Leeds will score a lot this season

                          I am cursing myself for making the same Steer error on my WC since I fancy Watkins from next week on. I may go for Jesus in that spot though, some key decisions to be made before GW10

                            It's really not an error. Adams or Bamford are similar picks

                      Steer blocking 3 outfield villa is a blessing in disguise

                    Midfield template: Grealish Zaha Salah Son Hamez, who will KDB replace?

                        Zaha or hamez. Midfield 4 of son salah grealish and kdb is what I’m looking at

                        I have the same midfield template. Maybe Zaha when I downgrade Kane..

                        My team atm -

                        Martinez - Button

                        Plan is -

                        GW 9 - Kane > Richarlison
                        GW 10 - Jimenez > Vardy
                        GW 11 - Richarlison > Aguero
                        GW 12 - Coady > Bellerin
                        GW 13 - KWP > Cancelo

                          Do you ever stick to these plans. Great to plan things out but never works for me beyond 2 or 3 weeks max

                              Don’t take changes in club/player form over that period into account? Or whether player is even playing? Cancelo could be on the bench by gw13. Just too long a time frame to plan out in my opinion

                            Aguero is enough for now

                            Can get KDB by downgrading Vardy in gw 14

                                What if both Aguero and Jesus fit at the same time, both sharing game time. One gets 60 mins 1 game, other gets 60 next

                                    One of them misses whole league game because of Champions League etc.

                                      Jesus will play CL imo as the group is as good as won for city

                                    City needs points

                                    Aguero has not played much

                                    He will get guaranteed minutes as he is a much better player than Jesus

                                Planning for moves 5 weeks in advance is just ridiculous. Maybe i expect it from a newbie but with youre experience u shd know better. Used ti do it when i was starting fpl but relaized it was a waste over the years and its led to better ranks

                              A. Foden to greilish

                              Really hoping for a United defeat today so Poch gets installed over the IB and I can feel confident captaining Bruno or Rash in GW9.

                                Poch is not a guaranteed success. See Jose and Spurs. Jose coached United as well

                                  True but new coaches bring a massively increased chance of an instant reaction, especially against whipping boys.

                                  Jose did well at United. Got second and won some trophies. It's clear that there are issues with the transfer policy and squad at United.

                                  We need to get rid of the dead wood players but in this market noone wants to buy them.

                              Any other obvious spots to use wildcard for fixture turns until Jan or best to get it locked in now?

                              Does it make sense to activate wildcard now to try beat price rises? Already saw I missed rises on Adams and Ziyech

                                You should have activated yesterday. Always hit the button right after the deadline.

                                I've made the same mistake this year and missed DCL price and now I am missing 0.1 for practically every move it's frustrating

                                Why would you activate during a covid ridden IB ?
                                Could affect your wildcard negatively in terms of forward planning

                              I've had Wilson since he was 6.4 and can now cash in 0.1 as he picked up an injury and the fixtures are turning.

                              A) Vardy
                              B) Werner
                              C) Bamford

                                First 2 moves will involve other players right ?

                                  Actually, no. Money in the bank after shipping Sterling last week.

                                    Fair enough, I'd go Vardy good fixtures and no way he is benched like Warner can be.

                                    Bamford not a bad option just got him myself - few away fixtures coming up and he seems to perform better in those.

                              Thinking of doing Kane and Foden > Werner and Rashford for a hit next week, yay or nay ?

                                Prefer Kun\Jesus or Vardy for the coming weeks and from United Bruno and his compulsory pens.

                                I’m tempted by Kane to Werner but at the same time Werner it’s judging Chelsea with so many options - Werner was about to rotate were it not for puli injury

                                No

                                Kane Son (MCI che ARS) v Martial (WBA sou whu) KDB (tot BUR FUL) ... think it's close. Kane Son goal assist combo is almost guarantee steady points regardless of the opponents. Maybe less explosive than previously for the next three.

                              What to do with Maupay?

                              Not getting Watkins - so I guess Bamford?
                              Other ideas?

                                Antonio if he is back for gw8?

                                Antonio is a good pick if fit

                                  but he is not fit

                                  1. jomikijiq
                                    • 5 Years

                                    might be after IB

                                That is a good idea.

                                I already have Wilson btw.
