Burnley’s Taylor suffers hamstring injury as Saka impresses for Arsenal

BURNLEY 1-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

  • Goal: Ben Mee (£4.9m)
  • Assist: Robbie Brady (£5.0m)
  • Bonus: Mee x3, James Tarkowski (£5.3m) x2, Erik Pieters (£4.3m) x2

TINKER, TAYLOR, SOLDIER, DYCHE

Charlie Taylor received treatment before being substituted

Charlie Taylor (£4.6m) suffered a hamstring injury after just eight minutes against Sheffield United on Tuesday night.

The left-back has had two £0.1m price rises since Gameweek 14 as FPL bosses invested in the Burnley defence.

After the match, Sean Dyche reported:

“Charlie Taylor is a hamstring injury. We will wait and see but we are stretched again. We are stretched and we can only hope these injuries stop coming and we can get everyone fit. There was a foul which the referee doesn’t give and then [Charlie] pulls it stretching. If [the referee] had blown for a foul, I don’t think he would have stretched it. We will see how it looks.” – Sean Dyche

James Tarkowski (£5.3m) also went down on the Turf Moor in the first half but soldiered on to play the full 90 minutes.

SHEFFIELD OF NIGHTMARES

Ben Mee heads past Aaron Ramsdale

Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m) saved two gilt-edged Burnley opportunities in the opening half of a hard-fought contest.

The Blades keeper kept out Ashley Barnes‘ (£6.0m) close-range effort after just 56 seconds when Chris Wood (£6.2m) knocked the ball down for his strike partner.

Ramsdale then denied a Wood header on 31 minutes from seven yards out, though the shot-stopper was beaten from the resulting corner.

Ben Mee (£4.9m) rose highest in the Sheffield United area to convert Robbie Brady‘s (£5.0m) dead-ball delivery. On Burnley’s performance, Mee remarked:

“We dug in at the end and the strikers defended really well from the front. We are getting back to where we want to be. We are tough to beat and that will get us up the table. We are moving in the right direction.” – Ben Mee

It is now three clean sheets in the past five gameweeks for the Clarets, with Nick Pope (£5.4m) only conceding two penalties in that time.

The biggest threat to Burnley’s shut-out came on 28 minutes as Rhian Brewster (£4.5m) saw a header from a corner cleared off the line by Josh Brownhill (£4.9m).

Dyche’s troops are scheduled to face Fulham at home in Gameweek 17 before a Double Gameweek 19 consisting of trips to West Ham and Liverpool.

The Clarets have a Blank Gameweek 18 ahead of their double helping of fixtures in Double Gameweek 19.

Sheffield United are winless in their 16 Premier League games this season – equalling Queens Park Rangers’ Premier League record of longest winless run from the start of a campaign (16 in 2012/13).

Well-owned FPL assets Wilfried Zaha (£7.4m) and Callum Wilson (£6.5m), along with Spurs pair Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Heung-min Son (£9.7m), are all set to face the Blades’ defence over the next three Gameweeks.

On the 1-0 defeat to Burnley, Chris Wilder lamented:

“The year we had last year was a perfect storm for us, we took big moments and found that bit of quality. This time we don’t find that bit of quality and it marries up with the results. It is a big arm wrestle and a big struggle for us.” – Chris Wilder


Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Taylor (Benson 8′), Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; Pieters, Westwood, Brownhill, Brady; Wood, Barnes (Stephens 78′).

Sheffield United XI (3-4-3): Ramsdale; Robinson (Fleck 56′), Egan, Basham; Stevens, Osborn, Ampadu (Norwood 66′), Baldock; McGoldrick, Mousset (Burke 62′), Brewster.

BRIGHTON 0-1 ARSENAL

  • Goal: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m)
  • Assist: Bukayo Saka (£5.2m)
  • Bonus: Rob Holding (£4.4m) x3, Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) x2, Pablo Mari (£4.4m) x1

BOOM SAKA LACA

Lacazette converts Saka’s pass beyond Sanchez

Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m) gave Arsenal the lead immediately after being introduced from the bench on 65 minutes, his first touch controlling a Bukayo Saka (£5.2m) pass before his second was fired past Robert Sanchez (£4.4m) in the Brighton goal.

“[Alexandre] Lacazette is in a good moment. He’s full of confidence. We wanted to change the team in the second half and give it some freshness.” – Mikel Arteta

Sanchez had already saved a big chance from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m) shortly into the second period.

Saka was also the creator of that opportunity, with the midfielder popping up on the left and right of Arsenal’s attack.

Since the start of last season, Saka has registered 15 assists in all competitions for Arsenal; more than any other player for the club.

While the budget midfielder is one of few Arsenal assets presently on the Fantasy radar, Saka did require on-pitch treatment late in the game with what looked like an ankle issue.

The winger continued before jogging off when substituted in the 82nd minute. Post-match, Mikel Arteta stated when asked if Saka has a serious injury:

“Hopefully not. He was limping but I think he took a strong challenge there. Hopefully he will be fine.” – Mikel Arteta

On Saka’s performance, Arteta added:

“In the second half, the moment we started to play different balls and attack in a different way [we] found more freedom, more space and more capacity to unlock the situations and the [Brighton] block. We created four or five big chances and he [Saka] was involved in most of them.” – Mikel Arteta

After a poor first-half showing, Arsenal dominated the second period as Lacazette’s introduction saw Aubameyang move out to his customary left-wing position.

Aubameyang sees a gilt-edged chance kept out

“We weren’t threatening in certain areas. In the second half we looked much more confident and we were playing more forward. The best medicine is wins. It’s a different world and a different story. The picture looks much better.” – Mikel Arteta

LAMP DOWN

Having said that Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) “is going to be a few days, maybe weeks” after Brighton’s 2-2 draw at West Ham in Gameweek 16, Graham Potter’s latest update will not inspire any confidence in fantasy terms.

“Tariq [Lamptey] is not far away and Danny Welbeck had a slight feeling in his knee. Adam [Lallana] is an outside chance for Wolves [in Gameweek 17].” – Graham Potter

Lewis Dunk (£4.8m), meanwhile, is now teetering on the suspension tightrope, having picked up his fourth yellow of the season on Tuesday.

Brighton have won just one of their last 14 Premier League games, drawing seven and losing six.

“We are suffering a bit at the moment. We have to play better, we have to do everything better.” – Graham Potter


Brighton & Hove Albion XI (3-5-1-1): Sanchez; Burn, Dunk, Webster; Bernardo, Gross, Bissouma, Propper (March 68′), Veltman; Jahanbakhsh (Trossard 74′); Mac Allister (Maupay 67′).

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney, Mari, Holding, Bellerin; Xhaka, Elneny; Martinelli (Lacazette 65′), Smith-Rowe (Maitland-Niles 88′), Saka (Ceballos 81′); Aubameyang.

      Can someone link me to the league that has the best top managers in it so I can compare my scores please? I had a look at the #Elite64 league, but I only recognise about 10 people there. Are there any better leagues please?

            I'm not being rude, but I don't know who any of those people are. I just want a league with only Hall of Famers. Are there any like that?

        Anyone else fancy taylor to rhys williams?

          None. He will rotate with Nat Phillips and hopefully common sense prevails and the club bring someone in during January

          I thought about R Williams
          but I suddenly remember Klopped played Fabinho and Hendo at CB last time at one point

          now Ox and Milner is back I am not so sure with R Williams

          I wouldn't count on him as a long-term starter, too much uncertainty there.

        When do we reckon Mourinho stops taking Son off with 10 minutes to go?
        The amount of points Spurs have dropped with Son not on is humongous.

        Wolves - Spurs (1-1):
        Son off 84'
        Saiss scores in 86'

        Liverpool - Spurs (2-1)
        Son off 87'
        Firmino scores in 90'

        Spurs - West Ham (3-3)
        Son off 80'
        Balbuena scores in 82'
        Sanchez OG in 85'
        Lanzini scores in 90 +4'

        Spurs - Newcastle (for arguments sake) (1-1)
        Son off 46'
        Wilson scores in 90 +7'

          You have to blame the rest of the team for that.

          1. Salarrivederci
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Ofc that matters as well. But one could argue that Son would have scored on a counter in 1-2 of those matches had he been on. When he is not on it is an invite to the opponent to turn on the all-out-attack-you-can't-score-now mode 😀

            Not only. Attack is the best defence (c)

        What time will we get confirmation on Fulham vs Spurs? Just getting up on this side of the world...

          • Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years

            There won't be any confirmation as it was never in doubt as far as I know.

              Yeah, I don't see why they would announce that it is on. Probably would only announce if it's off. No news is good news.

              No news is no news. They’re probably waiting on test results.

              I’m looking at Bednarek but don’t have McCarthy for double up. Coufal if he’s nailed, think he just sat out due to newborn arrival

                    Even for the double up, Stephens offers good value and Vestergaard out for some time

                Have Taylor klich Fofana and lindelof all flagged. No choice but holding until dgw.

                  Lindelöf has a reoccurring back problem that won't be fixed until surgery, would get rid...

                    Doesn't look good does it ....had such good vibes for this gw. Maybe will need to take one hit but that beats the purpose of BB doesn't it.

                That was my defence - missed out on 17+ points right there!

                    They would have gotten 17+ points?

                      I think he means that if they'd have played then the games would have gone a different way. Maybe the same scorelines, but equally, maybe not too

                      Well, not necessarily. They might have conceded, they might have been red carded, they might've scored an own goal. You can't say it's necessarily 17 points lost.

                #ManCity are set to announce the full extent of positive Covid-19 cases within their camp this afternoon, after all players and staff were re-tested yesterday. Additional testing will also take place today, with further rounds planned ahead of Chelsea [A].

                    Dias, Cancelo, Zouma, Coufal and Calvert-Lewin didn't play. Robbo could be next. Only Bissouma off the bench. This gameweek isn't going like I hoped.....

                    Brought in Coufal and Taylor and still missed both of their cleanies due to badluck :/
                    What to do with Taylor? Will hamstring keep him out of dgw?

                      Burnley fixtures not great, so ship for Leeds, Southampton defender or Holding

                        I can get Allioski but already have Dallas, Soton have liverpool and leeds have sspurs so can get Holding. He will be nailed right?

                      Alioski probably the more attacking option, otherwise go double West Ham? I’m thinking about getting some Southampton coverage in for DGW even though they don’t have great fixtures, as I know a lot of my ML have them so want to cover any potential points

                    Martinez Forster
                    Robbo Zouma Targett Coufal Kilman

                    Assuming there are no issues with Man City, which move would you make. Weighing up maximising double gameweek players against having City defensive coverage long term, although I know that may all be irrelevant. Working towards BB GW19.

                    A) Forster & Kilman > Johnstone & Dallas
                    B) Forster & Kilman > Meslier & Bednarek
                    C) Kilman & Coufal > Cancelo & Balbuena (no playing goalie on bench)

                      I’d say Vardy personally. I just sold DCL, Everton have gone right off the boil for me

                    Picked Dallas and Ayling on GW2 WC on the basis they would be this year's Stevens/Baldock. Took some time and it's sort of come true, but with Alioski instead of Ayling due to injuries. Sadly it was Taylor I sold Ayling for, not Alio...

                        Well he's only been involved in 2 goals all season so don't beat yourself up about it, especially as all of Leeds' defensive injuries have meant players have been shuffling all over the place

                      I'll be gutted if Robbo doesn't play today.
                      With just 45 points this GW and Salah, Son C, Dier and Robbo to play don't have much hopes going forward

                          There is nothing to suggest any of them have covid

                          It was the Fulham players who had Covid not Spurs. Keep up.

                          I think it’s Fulham players only so they’ll have to play the U21’s and will get batteries 8-0 with Son and Kane scoring hat tricks

                        If mane plays 90 today do you reckon he will be rested vs former club saints?

                          Don't think so.
                          There's enough time to recover and Liverpool will have a few days break again before the DGW.

                            Holding for now, just wait and see at this point, if it looks like anything more than the Chelsea game is off then I'll sell but if it's just that game then I'm holding (he's dropping in owners but was very close to rising in price before last night so he may hold out a while)

                          Look at the bright side. Every player who's been rested this GW will definitely be playing next Game Week. Those with very few rested players should start worrying.

                          1. PremKraut
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            It's all about how much of a break there is for the players between games. Many players currently have more rest between matches than in a normal Champions League week. I am happy that all my players played this week and they will play this weekend.

                              Ah, a positive way of looking at things for once! A lot of people here seem to just want to ignore any sort of a long-term view sometimes

                              And with three MCI players added to thoseeho were rested, there is also no worry to lose against ghost ship in the cup.

                            Robbo will be flying into that space vacated by KWP next gw.

                            If Fulham’s team is decimated by Covid, they will have to field some youngsters and they might get smashed by Spurs.

                            Meaning 2-0 as Spurs will prob still park the bus when they’ve scored the first one.

                            Great times to be a Spurs fan.

                              They'll probably be missing just a couple of first team players

                              So why couldnt other teams field "decimated" teams? More likely to be called off?

                              But why wasn't that the case with Man City then, playing U21s?
