Mee starts for Burnley as Barnes misses out with thigh injury

Backers of Burnley clean sheets will be pleased to see Ben Mee (£5.1m) return to the starting line-up for Double Gameweek 25.

The centre-back sustained a head injury in the first of two Double Gameweek 24 matches against Crystal Palace and ended up missing the second.

Having conceded to low-scoring Fulham in Mee’s absence, the Clarets will welcome back their captain with open arms.

With Erik Pieters (£4.3m) still on the sidelines, Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) earns his second successive Premier League start since returning from his own fitness problems.

At 15.7% ownership, Nick Pope (£5.6m) is the most popular Fantasy asset at Turf Moor today, boosted by Mee coming in for Kevin Long (£4.3m).

Ashley Barnes (£6.0m) is the latest Burnley striker to suffer from injury problems, missing out with a thigh problem today which means Matej Vydra (£4.8m) and Jay Rodriguez (£5.8m) lead the line.

Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) fronts West Bromwich Albion’s attack at Turf Moor having registered two assists and a goal in his first four Premier League outings.

Still, only 0.4% of Fantasy managers have shown any interest in him thus far, Matheus Pereira (£5.4m) the most-popular starting Baggies asset in just 1.5% of teams worldwide.

Double Gameweek 25 Line-ups

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Westwood, Cork, Brownhill; Rodriguez, Vydra.

West Bromwich Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Johnstone; C Townsend, Bartley, Ajayi, Furlong; Yokuslu, Gallagher; M Phillips, M Pereira, Maitland-Niles; Diagne.

Double Gameweek 25 so far…

After Leeds assets produced a disappointing start to Double Gameweek 25 in their Friday-night defeat to Wolves, Southampton continued in similar style.

While Chelsea did not tear their defence apart in quite the same way as many anticipated, Alex McCarthy (£4.5m), Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) and company could not get a clean sheet, the former earning a late yellow card for time-wasting too.

Danny Ings (£8.5m) was the reason Southampton conceded, giving away a second-half penalty for a foul on Mason Mount (£6.8m).

Ings disappointed at the other end of the pitch too, blanking for the fifth time in his last six matches. His Gameweek 24 strike against Wolves is still his only attacking return since Gameweek 17.

Scoutcast differential Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) was the man that came through for the Saints, having produced a superior figure for minutes per shot than Ings over the two players’ last four Premier League matches.

Nathan Redmond (£6.4m) played the Liverpool loanee through in the first-half, who stabbed home with a cool finish.

    Where are these rumours about Grealish’s injury coming from?

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Shin fracture or slight injury. Plenty of rumours. Wait till tomorrow.

    2. Rainer

      Started before the deadline, sent into over drive with Villa players and staff selling him this GW.

      1. gogs67
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Which players and staff?

      2. AzzaroMax99

      • 8 Years

      theyre not rumours at this point. He's definitely injured, why would all his own teammates and club staff transfer him out

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Maybe because he didn't share his lunch?

  3. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Going McCarthy over Pope gonna sting

  4. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Best option for the next 5gws?

    A. Rudiger
    B. Targett

    Ignore gw29 as I will FH

    Hoooooold lowton

  6. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Lowton off the bench for Grealish might work out nicely

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Benching a Burnley defender home to West Brom... Don't deserve that sort of luck

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Not my fault my squad’s so good

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Mines better and I started them, benched Cancelo

          1. Bubz

            • 8 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            What rank are you

            1. Super Saints
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 10 days ago

              Ha 105k unfortunately but climbing steadily, won't make top 10k again though unless saving all the chips pay off massively

    2. KAPTAIN KANE

      Hearing now it’s just a sore shin and he might play tomorrow.
      Chinese whispers at it’s finest

  7. KAPTAIN KANE

    If Salah rips it up later, is the below for a hit worth it?

    KdB & Ings to Salah & DCL

    1. The VAR Team
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      If he rips up his hammy yes

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      What's the point in bringing in KDB to shift him out for a hit?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Fear of no Salah

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      lmao is this a joke

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        No serious, Keep KdB and no Salah then?

  8. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Any other non salah owners cacking it a bit for later ? I think he could go big, thankfully not many will have captained

    1. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      EO still very high around my rank. Gray arrow for me even if he does something.

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Massively, hence the above post

    3. Keep calm and hoof me the b…
      • 12 Years

      Yup. Can't remember what I was thinking taking him out

  9. GGMU
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    burnley are so bad, can't score vs the worst team on the league who are a man down

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Worst team in the league who were unlucky not to win last weekend? 😀

  10. Londongeezaa
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    How to start a rumour:

    I hope the rumours about Bruno being injured aren’t true?

    There, as easy as that 🙂

    1. The VAR Team
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I heard they're definitely not true

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      No where to hide for the false rumour crew.

  11. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Burnley defence EO = 100%. Lots have more than one playing Burnley defender / GK?

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Yeah Pope and Mee, benched Cancelo, started Stones

    2. Keep calm and hoof me the b…
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      I only played Lowton, but foolishly benched Pope. Think lots will have double Burnley from last week so not too surprised if many played both Vs West Brom

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        I did the same. Wanted to avoid all eggs in one basket, and really fancied WBA to score, before the red. Also, many have Villa defenders so I wanted to play Martinez, just in case.

    3. Ragabolly
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      It's actually less than 100%, only 76% in the top10k. Enjoy your CS 😀

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Nice. 🙂

      2. diesel001

        Woohoo!

  12. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    One more save Pope, or four.

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Not looking likely......

  13. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Two weeks ago I brought DCL in early and he got injured in the FA cup

    Last night I did Ings and Antonio to Kane and Watkins, had to because of price changes... I never learn!

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      What's up with Kane or Watkins?

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Nothing yet but very risky

      2. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        There's a whole week for something to be up with them

  14. GGMU

    burnley: ZERO shots on target

    1. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      That's what we want

  15. balint84
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Sterling to Foden, then Antonio to Kane

    It's -4 but TC Kane

    Y or N?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years

      Y

    Congrats to BUR and WBA for living up to the hype of this being the worst game of football the country has ever seen.

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      Fulham v Sheffield United later 😉

      1. Says
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Fulham aren't too bad on the eye these days, props to Parker

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Yeah and defence improved a lot. Difficult to see them staying up though.

  18. GreennRed
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Is Minamino taking Walott's place? Walcott injury looks fairly long term.

  19. Tango74
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 10 days ago

    Found a clip, that was deliberate hand ball , by Ajayi.

    1. Super Saints

      Yes it was

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 10 days ago

      The player redcarded for handball?

      1. Tango74
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 10 days ago

        Yes. Right call . Last man stopped a goal scoring chance.

    Do keepers get any extra bps when they reach 3 saves or is each save rewarded individually?

  25. TheSteel

    Pope is a save away from a 10 pointer. Cmon Pope!

    1. GreennRed

    Basically all of our popular DGW players blanked (bar 2 points) and just as good as if they had a single fixture.
    Just not worth the time spent doing all the possible permutations and tinkering about to choose from a small pool of DGW players !

  29. Super Saints
