Burnley ride luck to latest clean sheet as Fulham’s defence impress again

Burnley 0-0 West Bromwich Albion

Bonus: James Tarkowski (£5.3m) x3, Nick Pope (£5.6m) x2, Matt Lowton (£4.5m) x1, Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) x1

Burnley and West Brom played out a goalless draw of some drama and considerably less quality.

Fantasy interest revolved around the Burnley defence.

Keeper Nick Pope (£5.6m) was far and away the most popular player on duty, with his 15.7% ownership handed an eight-pointer from the Clarets’ second clean sheet in three matches.

Some 6.6% of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) bosses earned shut-out points from Ben Mee (£5.1m), back after missing the midweek draw with Fulham following a suspected concussion last weekend.

It was a measure of just how poor the match was that much of the Fantasy talk involved whether Pope would be awarded a save, and therefore a save point, when he only partly blocked a goal-bound effort (he wasn’t), while the 3.7% of managers with Matt Lowton (£4.5m) in their teams were left to bemoan a late booking which clipped his bonus point potential.

But in truth, all those bosses were lucky to bank clean sheet returns at all, let alone moan about a missed point here or there.

Despite being reduced to ten men when VAR rightly persuaded Mike Dean to send off Semi Ajayi (£4.8m) for handball, the Baggies grew into the contest and missed excellent late chances to take all three points from the contest.

That confirmed a key issue point regarding West Brom. Even with Semi detached, manager Sam Allardyce bet the house on a win – surely the shape of things to come if he is to retain his relegation-dodging crown.

Matheus Pereira (£5.4m) was the stand-out attacking threat on the day, with his six attempts and three penalty area touches both match-leading figures.

He played (nominally) just behind lone striker Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m), although frequently ran past him on the break or during their occasional periods in possession – the Baggies had just 30% of that across the entire match.

But both were guilty of missing big chances.

That’s a luxury Allardyce’s men can simply not afford as they head into a decent mini-run involving Brighton and Everton at home during Double Gameweek 26, followed by a visit from Newcastle and a trip to Crystal Palace.

A first clean sheet under Allardyce was reward for the loyalty of the 2.2% of managers who have been living off save points from keeper Sam Johnstone (£4.5m), but his boss was left to rue a missed opportunity:

We are getting better and looking more dangerous and all we have to do at the top end of the pitch is be more clinical with our finishing. But if those performances carry on, then I’m convinced they will turn into wins rather than draws.

Then again, Burnley were unlucky that VAR didn’t intervene regarding a second hand ball incident, this time involving Kyle Bartley (£4.4m) in his own area.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche went for the ‘I’ve seen them given’ line on the incident, before delivering his verdict on a poor performance:

We gave the ball away so many times today. That is mental fatigue. Pitch was poor. The players were off, but we came away with a point and a clean sheet. We know these players can play better than that.

‘Mental fatigue’ is not the best preparation for Double Gameweek 26’s trip to Spurs and a home match with Leicester.

That’s a schedule inspiring indifference, with no Burnley players in the top 30 for transfers-in, and Mee currently the only Claret in the corresponding transfers-out table.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Westwood, Cork, Brownhill; Rodriguez (Mumbongo 81), Vydra.

West Brom XI (4-2-3-1): Johnstone; C Townsend, Bartley, Ajayi, Furlong; Yokuslu, Gallagher; M Phillips (O’Shea 32), M Pereira, Maitland-Niles; Diagne. 

Fulham 1-0 Sheffield United

  • Goals: Ademola Lookman (£5.0m)
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus: Lookman x3, Ola Aina (£4.5m) x2, Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) x1

Fulham’s quest to escape relegation – and find some Fantasy relevance – continued to gather momentum with a dour win over fellow strugglers Sheffield United.

The Cottagers are now unbeaten in four matches, and three of those have come with the added bonus of a clean sheet.

That has sparked some belated Fantasy interest in their back line, with keeper Alphonse Areola (£4.5m and 4.0%) the most popular starter across both teams.

But, arguably, it is two of Fulham’s back four who deserve the attention.

Both Ola Aina (£4.5m) and Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) brought in bonus against the Blades, with the former having produced scores of 11, nine and eight over his last three starts, and skipper Andersen’s 9,239 owners enjoying four straight returns, courtesy of those three clean sheets and an assist.

The centre-half was perhaps unlucky not to be handed the assist on Saturday as it was his pass to Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) that led to the winning goal, but the winger’s subsequent engagement with Ethan Ampadu (£4.3m) was deemed another passage of play.

That disappointment aside, both defenders are offering an attacking threat to go with their new-found defensive solidity, which bodes well for a Double Gameweek 26 involving a trip to Crystal Palace and a visit from Spurs – neither of whom are .

It’s persuaded a modest (circa 7,000) amount of managers to invest in Aina thus far, although Fulham’s schedule following that double (Liverpool away, Manchester City at home) is unlikely to lead to a rush on their key assets.

Lookman’s goal was his first attacking return in seven starts. He’s been a lively presence this season – his 52 attempts has been eclipsed by only five other midfielders, but his goal conversion rate of 7.7% is bettered by more than 80.

Sheffield United, meanwhile, continue to plough a consistently awful furrow, not helped by a terrible run of injuries, with Chris Basham (£4.6m) the latest victim.

One of the mainstays of last year’s superb defence, he started in midfield at Craven Cottage before manager Chris Wilder moved him into a back five after 30 minutes to help counter Fulham’s press.

That worked for a while, only for Basham to succumb to a hamstring issue after the break, leading Wilder to deliver this post-match verdict:

Basham has done his hamstring. He’s the fittest professional in club by a country mile. The record that we have had is ridiculous, only two or three players who have not had injuries this season, which is incredible. We’ll wait ’til we get home to Sheffield and see what the state is.

The state of the Blades’ league campaign is woeful indeed – they’re 14 points adrift of 17th-placed Newcastle.

And their lack of Fantasy appeal is perfectly summed up by their most popular player Rhian Brewster (£4.4m). His 6.4% ownership is entirely down to his cut-price as he’s played just four minutes of the last four Gameweeks.

A Double Gameweek 26 involving visits from Liverpool and Aston Villa isn’t likely to tempt Fantasy managers into buying him or his team-mates.

Fulham XI (4-4-2): Areola; A Robinson, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Reed, Anguissa; Lookman (De Cordova-Reid 90′), Loftus-Cheek, Cavaleiro (Tete 78); Maja. 

Sheffield Utd XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; K Bryan, Ampadu, Jagielka (Bogle 80); Basham (Norwood 51), Stevens, Fleck, Lundstram (McGoldrick 74), Baldock; McBurnie, Sharp.

    I still have my WC, BB and FH available, which looks best:

    Martinez (£4m)
    Cancelo, Stones, Mitchell (Dallas, Justin)
    Salah, Son, Sterling, Bruno, (Raphinha)
    DCL, Bamford (Antonio)

    A) Sterling, Antonio > Gundo, Kane (-4)

    2. GoonerSteve
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      I played my wildcard this week. I could have put out a pretty strong team but took the opportunity to rejig a few things and set myself up with 11 decent dgw players, most of which I will want long term.

      Feels great!

      .

  4. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…

    Pope
    Dias Stones Robertson Mee
    Salah Bruno Grealish Gundo
    Watkins Cavani
    Forster, Bamford, Dallas, ESR

    Certainly doing Cavani -> Kane (TC) for free but what else for hit(s)?

    A) Grealish -> Barnes
    B) Mee -> Digne
    C) Robertson -> R.Perreira

    Or any combo above?

    1. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Just Grealish > Barnes for me

  5. Bullet Eder

    A. Kane (BUR ful) and H Barnes (ARS bur) with Kane (BUR ful) triple captain

    B. DCL (SOU wba) and Salah (shu CHE) with Bruno (che cpl) triple captain

  6. Gudjohnsen

      Barnes

    2. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Gundo for sure, but ideally both

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Gundo.

  7. marcos11

    Which of these Leeds trio would you upgrade for a BB?
    Bamford Raph Struijk 1.5itb

    Areola McCarthy
    Dias Stones Shaw Targett
    Salah Bruno Barnes Gundo
    Kane DCL

    1. istanbul05

      Struijk to Soyuncu?

      1. marcos11
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Leicester defense does look decent, also looking at Everton with a potential dgw28

        McCarthy beating Ings by 7

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 5 days ago

          Need Ings to stay quiet. I’m 6 ahead, essentially it’s Ings vs Meslier.

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      I was positive earlier but I think I'll go out.

      Me: Struijk + Burn + Vestergaard + Raphinha(C)
      Opponent: Sanchez + Bamford(C) + Raphinha + 2

      Feel Bamford will score.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        That looks incredibly tight. Might just be a point in it.

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 5 days ago

          Few combinations can help my case, like a 0-0 draw or 1-0 Southampton win but if Bamford doesn't blank, I'm out.

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 5 days ago

            I just need an Ings blank. That’s literally it.

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Still in but it's down to this:

      Me: 48pts + Bamford (C), Ings, Raph, Dallas
      Him: 55pts + Bamford (C), Dallas

      So if Ings + Raph can score > 7pts then I'm through - touch and go!!

  9. Eewraks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 5 days ago

    With BB, TC, FH and WC available

    I'm thinking of attacking the double gameweek by using the FH, main reason is because i dont have any leicester and everton. Anyone with the same thoughts?

    This is best team I can assemble so far.

    Ederson (Fabri)
    Cancelo - Shaw - Digne (Kilman) (Ferguson)
    Gundogan - Salah - Fernandes - Barnes (Alzate)
    Kane (C) - Vardy - DCL

    Any key players that I should be including?

  10. istanbul05
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Currently ranked around 3k and considering quite an aggressive -12 to bench boost. What are your thoughts on:

    A) Coufal, Raphina, Grealish, Bamford to Konsa, Barnes, Son, Watkins (-12)
    B) Coufal, Raphina, Grealish, Bamford to White, Barnes, Lookman, Kane (-12)

    Leaning towards B with BB and in theory getting 4 extra games assuming Grealish is out. Would have 5 GW29 players, which I could get up to 7-8 with transfers...

    Martinez, Pope,
    Cancelo, Dias, Dallas, Mee, _____,
    Salah, Bruno, Gundo, _____, _____,
    Ings, DCL, ____.

    1. gedda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      I would go B out of the two but don't think you'll find value with the BB with a 12pt hit - they would all have to really perform to overcome that deficit.

    2. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      I think selling Leeds attackers is a waste. You might as well BB with them instead.

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Especially as they play 29 too

  11. FPL_BUCCANEER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on this slightly rogue WC?

    Martinez
    Dias Cancelo Castagne
    Bruno Son Barnes Gundo
    DCL Vardy Kane

    Fabri Raphinha Targett Struijk

    (Still got FH so don't need to set up for 29)

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Rogue being the Castagne pick?

    2. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Looks good but Castagne to Perreira

    3. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      What's the rogue moves here?

      Kane & Son is an overkill imo as you will FH in 29

    4. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      The big names up front is pretty special, and no Salah.

  12. Jellyfish
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Planning to BB GW26 and looking at taking a hit to swap out Forster for a 5.1 or less keeper (already have Martinez as primary gk).

    Figure its worth a punt over the 2 games, but which keeper? Currently leaning towards Johnstone.

    1. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Johnstone was the only real option for the cost when I looked, must admit it didn't excite me

    2. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Areola is your man, Fulham are a lot better in defence now

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Agree Fulham look beter but leaning towards Johnston based on WBA fixs

  13. tommo1989
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    What are the best weeks to triple captain and bench boost?

    1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      26

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Bench boost this week and maybe TC next

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      BB this week if you've set up for it. But seeing a lot taking -12s to load up which negates a lot of the benefit.

      I haven't set up for it so will TC and benchboost further down the line.

      1. tommo1989
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah I’m not set up for the bench boost this week so I’m thinking of triple captaining. Think I might have to triple captain Son as I don’t have Kane and can’t guarantee any Man City player playing both games. Which week will be best to bench boost later on?

        1. Arfaish
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 5 days ago

          Honestly id prefer to risk it on whichever man city midfielder you have (presuming they are KDB/Sterling/Gundo) than Son, form is not with Son atm. What about Bruno?

          1. tommo1989
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 5 days ago

            Not sure about Bruno when one of the games is against Chelsea but who knows.. I currently have Sterling, Gundogan and Stones and will struggle to fit KDB in (which is who I would ideally want to give it to).

    4. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Bench Boost when you see 4 guys sitting on your bench that have good fixtures.

      This templated view that you must BB in a Double GW - no matter what - is great and all that but this is not like any other season. There are so many Fantasy players out there trying to shoehorn their team into previously successful strategies all for the sake of conformity. Its really lame.

    5. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Both this week
      If choosing BB 26 and maybe TC DCL in GW28 if he has BUR + AVL

  14. BeWater
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Would you BB Pope, Dallas, Bamford and Raphina?

    Feel like getting it over with this week helps me when I WC.

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Yeah. Pope could return double digits on his own.

    2. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Yep

    3. marcos11
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Think l would so you don’t have to hold value on your bench

    4. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      If you havnt had to hit to get them in then yes

    5. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      How week do you think Leeds will do?

      1. BeWater
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 5 days ago

        That's the gamble Rupert. Without Grealish and Cash I like the idea more. All it takes is a Bamford G Raphinha A to make it worthwhile.

    6. BeWater
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Thanks lads. I'm starting to think getting rid of Son for Barnes to allow BB is not bad idea. Only going to cost me a -4.

      1. tomasjj
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        I would do that.
        Currently looking into how I can make the BB happen this week as well, without too many hits.
        Might not be too many chances left, and it ties up your WC.

    7. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      I'm BB the same except Areola instead of Pope, so yep.

      Would prefer DGW players on bench but will already be doing a -4 for Greal and Ings to Barnes and DCL, plus don't see other great time to use it in future. May as well get two bites at the cherry for keeper. Villa look vulnerable too

  15. Catastrophe

    A) Watkins, Barnes (Bamford, Dallas)
    B) DCL, Keane (Raphinha, Bamford)
    C) Watkins, Digne (Raphinha, Bamford)
    D) DCL, Watkins (Raphinha, Dallas)

    Want Everton and Villa due to the doubles (especially Villa with 29 in mind) but Barnes is looking a great option.

    Cheers

    Wonder what happened here ... -92 point hit in GW24, but had already used WC + FH so not like they forgot to activate it. Zero hits before then. Top 10k to 150k!

      Looks like his mates had ruined his team with duds so he tried to fix it. Very harsh that

    TC kane still a good idea?

      I'm going for it unless Mou stupidly gives him 90 mins in the EL.

      Spurs form has to improve at some point right....?

    Thoughts on this WC Team?

    Martinez - Fabri
    Dias - Digne - Rudiger - Vestergaard - Burn
    Bruno - Sterling - Gundo - Barnes - Lookman
    Kane - Vardy - DCL

          You're going to have a massive benching headache straight away is my only concern?

  22. Leeds-Utd
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Salah & Antonio
    For
    Barnes & Kane -4pts?
    Then I will TC Kane
    Worth it or not?

    1. AgentFern
      • 4 Years

      Salah still top goal scorer and has plumb fixtures, he could sting you. Do you own son?

      1. Leeds-Utd
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah I have Son

    Going to BB this week and I've got Bamford, Raphinha and Dallas. Tempted to do 2 of the below moves? Which look best? Not got FH for 29

    A Bamford to Watkins
    B Raphinha to Lookman
    C Dallas to Pereria/regulion

  24. Tsparkes10

    Was gonna get rid of Sterling to fund Kane but not sure now. Could do Grealish, Ings to Saka, Kane? Any other ideas plz 2FT 0.3itb

    Martinez
    Mee Dias Stones
    Sterl Bruno Son Greal Raph
    Bamford Ings
    (Johnstone, Dallas, Antonio, Justin)

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Grealish to Barnes looks obvious move

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 5 days ago

        The fplstatistics website suggests that a lot of people agree with you 🙂

    2. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      Ings to DCL.
      Grealish to Barnes.
      Or your move to Kane.

    3. Tshelby
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      That's my move. Grealish -> Barnes and keeping Sterling.

      Spurs not really convincing so not getting them for the DGW fever

  25. AgentFern
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    What you guys think of this plan. WC activated for this GW...

    Martinez (johnstone)
    Cancelo, Dias, Shaw, (Konsa, Coufal)
    Salah, Barnes, Bruno, Gundo (Soucek)
    DCL, Kane, Watkins

    Will play BB GW27
    Johnstone (NEW)
    Konsa (Wolves)
    Soucek (Leeds)
    Coufal (Leeds)

    And then build a team for BGW29 should be able to get 9/10 players

  26. tomasjj
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 5 days ago

    Bench 2:

    a) Bamford
    b) Rudiger
    c) Coufal
    d) Raphina

    1. AgentFern
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      The two defenders

    2. tomasjj
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 5 days ago

      All right.
      Thanks!
