Who are the best Burnley players to own for FPL Double Gameweek 24?

Fantasy Premier League managers are considering Burnley players for Double Gameweek 24.

The Clarets face two favourable fixtures against Crystal Palace (away) and Fulham (home) but are they worthy of a mass investment?

How many Burnley assets are too many and which ones should we own? That’s what we’re here to help you with.

After running a data dive on the recent 1-1 draw with Brighton, we have analysed the full capabilities of Sean Dyche’s men at both ends of the pitch in Double Gameweek 24.

THE FORM

Having started 2020/21 in uncharacteristically lethargic spirits, Burnley have embarked on a solid, if unspectacular run, to steer themselves away from the danger zone of late.

They collected 17 of their 23 points over the last 12 matches which included morale-boosting wins at Arsenal (Gameweek 12), home victories over Wolves (Gameweek 14), Sheffield United (Gameweek 16) and Aston Villa (Gameweek 20).

And, of course, their hard work at Anfield in Double Gameweek 19 helped Dyche’s men become the first visiting team to win a Premier League match there since April 2017.

Still, even though the points are flowing more freely these days, one common theme has underpinned the Clarets’ matches this season: lack of goals.

Despite sitting one place above the bottom three, only eight Premier League clubs have conceded fewer times than Burnley this season.

Double Gameweek 24 teams: Fulham - best FPL players, form, fixtures and XXX

Intriguingly, their total of 29 goals shipped is level with Liverpool while second-placed Manchester United (30) and tenth-placed Leeds (38) have both been breached more times than Dyche’s men this season.

The reason for Burnley’s poor performance in the league table despite these hardly relegation-form defensive numbers is, of course, their troubles in front of goal.

After 23 Gameweeks, no team has scored fewer goals than the Clarets (14). Sheffield United have 15 strikes from one extra match, meaning both clubs sit bottom of the league for 0.6 goals per game.

The formbook has not seen much improvement in this area, despite Burnley’s increased number of points.

Over the last 12 matches, their total of nine goals is the second-lowest in the division behind only Fulham (six).

But continuing with their theme, only Manchester City (three), Arsenal (nine) and Leicester (10) have a better defensive record during that time.

      Pope, Justin, Dias, Gundo playing possibly playing deep?

      Pep: "Ruben Dias and Fernandinho both missed the trip to South Wales, with the boss revealing Dias was unwell and Ferna has some muscle issues. “Ruben had a fever,” he said. “He still has some problems with the stomach. That’s why he couldn’t train yesterday."

          possible, but doubtful as they are tested regularly; seems it would have been mentioned. That was all there was from mancity.com news

        Sounds to me Dias should be fine for Saturday

      Get Mee or Digne for Coufal ?

      1. Miguel Sanchez

        Tarkowski

        1. Pedersen
          • 2 Years

          Isn't Mee more offensive?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 months, 9 days ago

            Not historically and Tark looks to have been unlucky not to score from his xG

      2. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        I just went Mee for price reasons

      3. Sterling Malory
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        I've just gone for Lowton, but Digne is obviously a tempting proposition.

    • Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 9 days ago

      Is spurs go out, no dgw26 ?

      1. Gobigorgohome
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        no still can dgw 26 for spurs
        may get game in gw 29

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 9 days ago

        NAh, still at least three unscheduled matches in hand, depending on Sot'on - Wolves result tomorrow , if I understand Ben Crellin spreadsheet correctly

      3. ivantys
          4 months, 9 days ago

          They will most likely face Fulham in 26. The fixture in 29 not confirmed

        3. Milkman Bruno
            4 months, 9 days ago

            He didn’t say Pope was injured just that “we were missing” in the quote. Have you heard something else? Could of been missing for a number of reasons right?

            1. Gobigorgohome

          Dias sick
          Pope a doubt
          Antonio hamstrings gone

            Antonio doesn’t have a hamstring issue just fatigue - will be fine I think

            Dias will be fine too I think

            I think Antonio is more than they’re letting on. Don’t think it’s just fatigue.

            This would be an ideal outcome for me.

            Although I never wish injury on any player

          Funny how people decided ndombele had turned a corner because of a fluke goal and a load of pirouettes. The guy is absolute trash. 60m.

            You haven't been watching much. He's very good. He's the only Spurs midfielder that can actually progress the ball.

            1. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 9 days ago

              I’ve watched every game, he constantly gives the ball away

        8. ivantys

            City cap is surely locked, these 2 teams can't defend.

            This is all set for DCL DGW blank. I was going to captain him but he had his massive haul now so most probably will blank in the next 2

            Any option below worth a -4 hit? Any other suggestions welcome

              Son has dgw 26, so unless ur planning to WC in dgw 25 (which I wldnt do unless you hav FH for BGW 29), then don’t do B.
              I like look of A will probs pay off.

                  He’s on form tho, he’s a great striker, probs got better chance of being involved in goals than son. Cresswell is probs safer tho.
