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.

      2. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Me, for a few hours before the deadline. Can’t say I’m too annoyed though I ended with the armband on safe Salah

    2. Dr Mantis Toboggan
      • 6 Years

      Brought him in this week 🙂 was astounded at the amount of transfers out

    3. Hazz

    4. Londongeezaa

      His 1st return for me since I brought him in. More relief than excitement.

    5. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years

      Yaaay

    6. Green Arrow
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Held him through 4 blanks. Now if these two games are completed, Vardy party may elevate me to a sub 4k rank!

  2. lilmessipran
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Any chance the Leicester game is called off at half-time? Bitter Kane owner here with a weak bench

    1. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Pray to the snow gods

    2. Ligdon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      No chance

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Zero chance imo

  3. 420king
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    This postponement is not good for me. I have no idea how I'll get Kane in. Any idea when it's supposed to be played?

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      GW21 at the earliest

      1. 420king
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thanks.

  4. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    If a game called off at half time. What would be the fpl points system?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Nothing.

  5. Old Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    What is the policy regarding abandoned matches - are the FPL points chalked off?

    1. Londongeezaa
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yes. You won’t get Kane’s 2 points unfortunately.

  6. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Call the me Leicester game off it’s not safe!

  7. Differentiator
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Kane, Son and Royal owner

    Bench is Livramento, Duffy, Brownhill

    25 points, only James left to play

    Rough with the rough.

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      It's all luck.. Nothing wrong with your decisions.

    2. mox81
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Triple Spurs is bold, unfortunately hasn't worked out today, but the players will have 1 less game I'm their legs for the next two good fixtures!

  8. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Did Havertz & Eduoard to Jota & Vardy! So happy!

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      And those were two free transfers! Buzzing!

    2. AIRMILES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Woof! Good calls.

    3. TheTinman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      You win! Well played

    4. OptimusBlack

      Very Good Moves

    5. You’re on mute
      • 6 Years

      Great bringing in Vards when everyone sold - superb

  9. Cok3y5murf
    • 5 Years

    Vardy benched next GW?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Subbed early to rest him for midweek if comfortably ahead.

      1. Cok3y5murf
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Was gonna sell him for Kane but tough decision now. Two great finishes as well

  10. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    I did tell you all I was selling Vardy to fund Son last week.... What did you expect?

    1. rupopo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      You are cursed. Unbelievable.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Unbelievably s#!t

        1. rupopo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          😀

    2. Dr Mantis Toboggan
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Do you think you are relevant around here?

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Not at all but you'd all genuinely do a lot better if you paid attention to my team and transfers

        1. rupopo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Would you care to share your team, so can look at your transfers and all that bad luck you've had?

    3. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Hahaha

    4. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      There he is

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      My good week turns disastrous with Kane, Son and Brownhill lol.

      Like what are the odds of even my fodder being in the same game with my 22m+ assets being called off.
      Unbelievable

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Even the weather gods are against us. More snow was forecast yesterday

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        At least 1 in 10?

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah then multiply the odds by the fact it is that actual game that is called off

    6. TheTinman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I imagine you're allergic to snow too?

    7. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Sorry but you are not good at fpl. However you’re a state champ in moaning.

    8. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Are you Fudgy
      Are you Fudgy
      Are you Fudgy in disguise?

      1. rupopo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Fudgy did make me laugh though. He was playing with it most of the time.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah, as toxic as it was he 100% knew what he was doing but unfortunately didn't know when to stop.

    9. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I know you are called out a lot on here with moaning, but you are so unlucky it’s unreal, so I completely understand why.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        You're too nice to him. He knows what he's doing, unless he's as dense as he is at FPL.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          It’s hard to tell over the net, but it doesn’t feel like Fudgy style troll moaning, more disbelief at his decisions backfiring.

          I find it more relatable because barring buying Salah late, I’ve not made bad decisions, just unlikely and unlucky outcomes

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I'm not saying he's Fudgy for sure, just tired seeing them constantly blame everything except their mis-functioning decision process for doing poorly.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Selling Vardy before Watford at home is risky for sure

        2. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Thankfully I'm not dense enough to abuse people online

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Chat s#!t, get banged.

  11. Gandalf
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Hypothetically, if Leicester match called off at half time, would owners keep the points or would they get voided?

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      There'll be a blood bath at the towers if the points are voided 😛

      1. TheTinman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        They would be voided if its cancelled

  12. jackruet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Now people will buy vardy again after ditching him 2 weeks ago lol

  13. Baps hunter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Having Jesus over Vardy is killing what could have been a big green arrow. And naturally I lack 0.1 million to do that transfer.

    1. Nomar
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      He's another utter waste of space player. Had him for weeks now. £8.7m for eff all.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Yea, it wasn't big issue to have him over Foden and Vardy when they did nothing. Now he is just annoying. Should have started Dennis over him 🙁

  14. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Okay, okay I understand that England is known for its beautiful clear and sunny skies 😉 but surely by now one stadium is built with a roof in the league

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      We have roofs on Wimbledon centre court and court no1

    2. TheTinman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Centre Court and Court 1

    3. mox81
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Naaaa, variable weather is part of the beautiful game! They should be able to handle some snow, embarrassing for the club.

  15. Werner Bros
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Want Jota but struggling to find the best way to him here. Any suggestions welcome

    Sanchez
    TAA Cancelo James
    Salah Son Raph Mbuemo
    Vardy Antonio Hwang

    Steele White Liv McArthur

    2FT 0.4ITB

    1. dlrowssoB
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Does selling Raph and Mbuemo give you enough for Jota plus a 2 pointer defensive midfielder?

  16. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    If games are called off at HT does that mean first half points are erased?

  17. JoeSoap
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Vardy/Havertz>Wilson/Son two weeks ago paying off well

  18. Lord of Ings
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Would a take a -4 and do
    Foden + livra—>Gundogan + Reece James (-4)
    Or
    Just foden to Gundogan FT.

  19. ZeBestee
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Brought in Vardy and he went like 4/5 games blanking, now I remove for Kane last 2 gw's and Kane blanks and has a no show. Sometimes its impossible to get this game right, so many vectors and luck.

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 25 days ago

      You call this luck? Vardy Isn't fixture proof. His good fixtures starts now, from this week

      1. ZeBestee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Have you been watching Leicester recently? They were awful in all recent games I watched.

    2. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Kane no-show today is bad luck, but Vardy scoring is far from it. His blanks came in tough fixtures except Leeds. People sold him before his good fixtures

  20. Viprin
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Get your shovels out

  21. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Vardy owners seen arriving at king power with shovels and hair dryers

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      All overweight and look like they’ve never kicked a ball of course

  22. Randaxus
      1 month, 25 days ago

      King was hibernating for a couple years, now he has decided to start scoring goals again.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        He is proven, if you know. So many good gw's with him in my team before.

        1. Randaxus
            1 month, 25 days ago

            He has only had 2 seasons that he has scored above 10 goals, do you know why he didn't play last year I don't remember.

          • Randaxus
              1 month, 25 days ago

              I remember now, he was snubbed by Everton, it was a bad move from him anyway Calvert-Lewin was always going to be the first choice striker.

        2. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I pray to you "Ullr" the Norse god of Snow, call off the Leic game

          1. Zim0
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            😆

        3. Ligdon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Hilarious the amount of people, including myself that removed vardy before Watford 🙂

          1. Werner Brothers
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Bachmann in goal is unexpected

        4. Shark
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          So the Man City - Hammers player points would become void if the game is abandoned? Could be one of those weird gameweeks.

        5. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Games won’t be called off at half time hopefully … half time is when the snow is cleared off the lines and generally off the pitch

          bring on the orange balls

        6. Firminoooo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          What a terrible day. Kane, Reguilon and Foden no show. All the well owned players I don’t own get points: Dennis, King, Vardy, Toney…..

        7. HonestBlatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Call the Leicester game off now...

        8. TOBY1
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          So surprised many sold Carey with those fixtures

          1. TOBY1
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Vardy*

        9. OptimusBlack
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I hope ppl stop getting Vardy again so he start to blank
