FPL managers eye Burnley clean sheet in first Double Gameweek match

Burnley’s key defenders are all in place for their first Double Gameweek fixture.

Nick Pope (£5.5m) comes into the round as the most popular Claret, owned by 16% of Fantasy Premier League managers while 1.9% of the top 10,000 have captained the goalkeeper.

However, the rest of Burnley’s defence can be considered differential figures for the visit to Crystal Palace.

7.1% possess Ben Mee (£5.0m) worldwide while 3.2% are invested by James Tarkowski (£5.3m).

Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) is absent from the matchday squad once again, allowing for Erik Pieters (£4.3m) to continue his run at left-back.

Matthew Lowton (£4.5m) could do well against Palace’s (and Fulham’s) weak left flank but is only owned by 3.0% of Fantasy managers.

Chris Wood (£6.2m) joins Taylor on the sidelines with his hamstring injury, while Matej Vydra (£4.8m) has picked up a similar problem, so misses out as well.

That means Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m) partners with Ashley Barnes (£6.0m) up-front today.

Crystal Palace are without Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m) for the second Premier League match in a row.

Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) is on the left flank of midfield while Jordan Ayew (£5.6m) is in the other winger role in support of Christian Benteke (£5.5m) and Michy Batshuayi (£5.7m).

Meanwhile, Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) occupies the left-back role and keeps Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) on the bench.

Double Gameweek 24 Line-ups

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne; Eze, Riedewald, Milivojevic, Ayew; Benteke, Batshuayi.

Burnley XI: Pope; Pieters, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson; Rodriguez, Barnes.

Double Gameweek 24 so far…

James Maddison (£7.4m), Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) and Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) got the goals for Leicester as they executed an impressive second-half comeback to beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday lunch-time.

The latter looks set to emerge from the King Power Stadium with the most impressive tally as he recorded a goal and an assist, putting him in the running for two bonus points.

It was bad news for owners of Liverpool defenders as Ozan Kabak‘s (£5.0m) debut ended in disaster. Goalkeeper Alisson (£5.9m) collided with him in the 81st minute, allowing Vardy to convert into an open net.

With goals for Maddison (15.2%-owned) and Vardy (14.8%), the fact that Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) also found the net means the Fantasy masses are likely to be content with the way Double Gameweek 24 has begun.

The Egyptian is owned by 42.7% of managers worldwide, although was not considered a big part of the captaincy by the highest-performing managers.

Just 0.5% of the top 10k handed him the armband this week, a total of nine players receiving more attention in that department, including Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m)

    The stage is now set for Burnley to allow Palace to nick a goal.

    Brighton fulham Tottenham wba United are cpl next oponwts plus one extra in the double.

      FUL MUN is going to be their DGW in 26. It's good on paper but CPL are so bad I'm not even gonna go there.

      1. Daniel Jebbison

        I mean the opposite. Get players against them. This means Bruno is essential

      Weak at set pieces. Maguire could be a good differential. Maybe Shaw if he's taking corners.

    Where's my Mee goal?

      Grazing grass.

    Ffs that would've been a Ben Mee assist if Ben Mee took the corner kick

    1. Bob Vrabkab
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 21 days ago

      Probably would've gone straight for a throw in on the other side

    Double Burnley attack was the way.

      Two goals without barnes involvement is pretty depressing. I dont think burnley are allowed to average more than 1 a game so I guess that's it for the dgw

    Is GW 27 defo a double? FPL doesn't have the additional games yet

    1. jammie26
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Who's doubling in 27?

      • djman102
        • 12 Years
        5 months, 21 days ago

        Not yet. City-Southampton likely will go there, possibly one other.

      Triple Burnley attack was the way to go.

        Palace hopeless from set pieces.

      3. ivantys
          5 months, 21 days ago

          Barnes was bought cos he has pens 😀

          Isn’t it nice on here when we all own the same players, nice community spirit

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            That will change if mee tarko or Lowton get attacking returns

          Pope isn't getting more than 6 points here. will be lucky if he even makes 3 saves...

          1. jammie26
              5 months, 21 days ago

              I'll take 6 points ta

            What the hell has happened to Palace?

              Crystal Palace? More like Paper Palace. Amirite?

            Which one is Lowton?

            5 months, 21 days ago

            Fair play if you put gudmusson in your team. Huge differential (0.1 ownership!) and looked great recently. I had two city midfielders and 2 Utd midfielders so no room in my team. Very worried about the early goals for my triple Burnley defence now. 1-0 with a late goal would have suited me better! Time is moving slowly...

            1. ivantys
                5 months, 21 days ago

                Palace offered nothing in attack, nothing to worry here.
