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.

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.

    My whole team in trouble.

    Pope, Dias, Justin, and DCL.

        Dyche:

        "We've run out of players. Last night we were missing Pope and Cork who hopefully will be alright but they had to miss that game. Woods still out, Brownhill still out, Brady still out, Taylor still out.

        We've got a couple of young lads coming in. We've got Johann who we're still trying to be careful with and we've got loads of games coming. It's just really tough because the priority remains the Premier League."

    Best 3rd City player? Assume budget not an issue.

    Whole plan is ruined.

  23. Bushwhacker
    • 2 Years

  24. Inazuma X1

  25. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thats a real disaster. Just as he was hitting form too

  26. Revival
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 25 days ago

    City attack is going to run riot on these defences

  27. Dirty Harry
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 25 days ago

    Just when you thought this season couldn't get any worse, one night of games and now another wave of spanners getting thrown into the works

  28. DARE TO BISCAN
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 25 days ago

    Pope
    Cancelo Stones Mee
    Salah Gundo Bruno Son
    DCL Bamford Antonio
    (McCarthy Shaw Justin Soucek)
    2FT £3.9m WC & TC

    I'm considering
    GW24: Cancelo/Stones, Salah > Dallas, Sterling
    GW25: Soucek > Raphinha
    GW26: Antonio > Kane

    Good idea, or nah (suggestions)?
