2pm kick-off team news as Burnley v Spurs is postponed

Sunday’s match between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur has been postponed due to adverse weather conditions, but there are still three Premier League matches kicking off at 14:00 BST – Brentford v Everton, Leicester City v Watford and Manchester City v West Ham United.

For Man City, Phil Foden (£8.2m) and Jack Grealish (£7.6m) are both missing from the matchday squad, with Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m), Raheem Sterling (£10.6m) and Gabriel Jesus (£8.7m) leading the line in Pep Guardiola’s 4-3-3 formation.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) remains sidelined following his positive Covid-19 test.

David Moyes makes just the one change from Gameweek 12, as Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) drops to the bench, with Arthur Masuaku (£4.4m) coming into the starting XI.

Meanwhile, Thomas Frank makes two changes from last weekend’s 3-3 draw at Newcastle United, as Charlie Goode (£3.9m) and Frank Onyeka (£4.9m) replace Mads Roerslev (£4.3m) and Saman Ghoddos (£5.3m), who are both benched.

Everton, who are winless since Gameweek 6, make three changes as Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.4m) returns from injury and starts ahead of Fabian Delph (£4.4m), while Alex Iwobi (£5.8m) and Salomon Rondon (£6.0m) also feature from the off.

Notably, Demarai Gray (£5.6m) returns from injury and starts on the bench.

Elsewhere, Leicester’s starting XI features Jonny Evans (£5.4m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.6m), while Ben Foster (£4.1m) misses out for Watford, with Daniel Bachmann (£4.2m) in goal.

      November does seem a tad early for the game to enter “farce” phase but here we are.

      1. Miniboss
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Need to get used to it, climate is changing

          So it's never snowed in Leicester on Nov 28 before today?

    @OddsOnFPL
    No Cristiano Ronaldo in the Man United starting XI today.

    Donny van de Bench.

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year

      Ffs…

    2. Oggle22
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Would top it off If true

    3. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Fernandes time with no Ronaldo. Fernandes has been stifled by Ronaldo.

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Honestly I kinda get it.

      We are going to control the ball & United will need pace up top.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        (for counters)

    5. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Ronny against tired legs. I'll take it.

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Chelsea men just get stronger

    6. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Impact sub is how he should have been used from the off.

  3. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    OMG Carrick

  4. My heart goes Salalalalah
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I was hoping owning both Kane and Son would be a great differential until everyone else caught on...

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Tbf everyone was banging on about their fixtures since the international break, forgetting their form.

  5. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Ronaldo to Kane success!!

  6. Isca Extremadura

    Canos YC

  7. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Call Leicester game off now. This is not safe anymore

    1. TyroneGAA
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      No chance

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years

      Stop being like Grandmother

    3. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      This. Will someone please think of the children!

  8. Ginkapo FPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Curious Vardy is being a flattrack bully today. That isnt his usual style

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      As an owner I’m hoping this kick starts one of those runs of scoring form.

    2. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      He alternates these days there's no real rhyme or reason

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yep. Minutes are what’d put you off.

      2. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thats not good in an fpl pick

  9. Royal5
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Hope they have defibrillators available for the fellas that shuffle snow

  10. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Ralph already making the decisions at United if that Ronaldo rumour is true.

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      ??

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He'll want hard working pressers in his team not Ronaldo's thing...

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Isn’t Carrick in charge? I mean its been obvious from day one Ronaldo should be an impact sub

  11. NateDog
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Sounds like weather has eased at Etihad and worsened at Leicester

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'm watching the Leicester game. Its terrible. Can't even see the ball!

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It moves in mysterious ways

  12. Smokey_Lowkey
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Surely if the snow continues to chuck down in Leicester, they'd take a time out to clear it up as in the City game at HT?

    Or clutching at straws..?

    1. Dannyb
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It's not getting called off surely.

      1. HonestBlatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Why..you should get proper snow management equipment there soon

      2. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Vardy brace says otherwise

      3. Smokey_Lowkey
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Would be horribly unfair on Leicester tbh (and us Vardy owners...)

      4. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        How do you know

      5. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah half an hour played. Christmas schedule. They won't cancel this now. If anything pause, shovel & finish it off ASAP.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          *half an hour left

    2. Tigers Time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yes they could pause the game and get the lines cleared - I can't see it being called off now.

    3. ebb2sparky
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I could be wrong but I think the score stands if a certain number of minutes are played before a game is abandoned. I had in my head that it was 65 minutes but a quick Google suggests 60. Not sure how realiable my Google search result was though.

      Anyone know for sure?

  13. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Ah yes. Sterling is on this pitch

  14. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Snow far worse at Leicester now

    1. Eastman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I have Vardy but also Tomiyasu as first sub so not sure what I want to happen

  15. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    @OddsOnFPL

    Not sure about the formation, but here is the lineup which I have received for today.

    De Gea
    Wan Bissaka - Lindelof - Bailly - Telles
    Matic - Fred - McTominay
    Sancho - Bruno - Rashford

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Bruno essential!

    2. I am 42
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      no Ronaldo?

      I brought in Kane because I want Ronaldo for gw16 lol

    3. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Bruno false 9 has my attention

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thought Shaw might be interesting at 5m but if Telles has a good game today probably not!

    4. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Well it's interesting, Bruno false 9 or Rashford leading the line?

    5. Vpan
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      4-6-0

  16. JONALDINHO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Knew Ronaldo would be dropped

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Held him since GW4 and now he can't even get in the team

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Hampering the team ; can’t compete in the Prem with a passenger no matter how talented

  17. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Safety first, call this Leicester game off!

    1. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I agree

    2. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yep, safety is your first thought and not the Vardy brace. 😀

    3. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Behavr

    4. james 101
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I’ve got 17 points from it currently.

      So kind of hoping it continues…

    5. dlrowssoB
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It looks absolutely awful there (Vardy owner)

  18. Green Arrow
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Moved closer to the tv. Still can't see the ball.

  19. potatoace
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Lei match getting farcical.

  20. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Call it off, it’s to cold to play !

  21. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Call it all off and declare the game week nul and void

  22. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Can they take a break and clean the snow?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      They can but then you have slight issues with players calling down, going again, increased Injury risk etc

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      They need to build a roof at this rate.

    3. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Of course

  23. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    This fella is claiming Ronaldo is benched

  24. DavidBadWillie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I own Wilson and am now worried about there being big snow in Newcastle in a couple nights

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Only snows once in a blue moon you’ll be fine

    2. dlrowssoB
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      So long as SJP took no storm damage you’ll be fine. Plenty of trees fallen over around Heaton when I drove past this morning tho

  25. CAVEAT KING
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Nightmare for some of us.

  26. Lord of Ings
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    If only mahrez was a regular in this city team..
    At 9m he would probably be one of the best value players in the game
    The number of shots he takes/chances he creates per game is pretty high.

  27. DandyDon
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    So how many minutes do they have to play for result to stand!? Nervous Vardy and Dennis Owner!

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Game has to be completed, AFAIK.

      1. DandyDon
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Does it not count if its over 75 or 80 mins or somthing? A precedent was a postponed match after 45mins for a pitch 'riot' I've found but I guess thats different circumstances

        1. dlrowssoB
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I think that was the case historically but I’ve been Googling it and it seems it’s now full match or at FA discretion

    2. Royal5
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      They wont remove your points if that is what you are worried about.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Never been the case. If it's abandoned on 89 mins the result is void, as would FPL points, I'd have thought.

  28. AIRMILES
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Odds on Vardy doing a snow angel goal celebration for his hat trick?

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Would be awesome.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Just listening on the radio so don't know.

        Apparently they can't see!

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      1/10. Then it will get abandoned.

  29. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Leicester 3
    Watford 2

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Who got the assist?

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Dennis goal

      VAR check on a foul?

      If they can see...
