FPL Daily: Premier League set to continue despite Covid-19 outbreaks

We round up the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points of the day in FPL Daily, a series that will serve non-Premier League matchdays and days when we don’t bring you a team news/press conference round-up.

PREMIER LEAGUE SET TO CONTINUE

The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 18: Tips, captains, team news and best players

Premier League clubs have rejected the idea of postponing Christmas matches, despite the ongoing disruption caused by Covid-19, with the intention to continue the current fixture schedule where safely possible.

In a hastily arranged meeting involving all 20 top-flight managers, it is understood a large majority wish to play on, at least for now.

As a result, clubs have been advised if they have 13 fit players, plus a goalkeeper, they should fulfil their games. The Premier League have also made it clear that they will be expected to use U21 players to make up the numbers, and that non-first-team matches, such as U23 games, should not be scheduled a short-time before a Premier League fixture, to ensure that as many players as possible are available for selection.

The FA is also considering scrapping third and fourth-round FA Cup replays, in an attempt to ease the pressure on Premier League squads, which could make room for some of the games that need to be rearranged.

So far, 10 Premier League matches have been lost to the virus across Gameweeks 16 to 18:

  • Brighton and Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur (Gameweek 16)
  • Brentford v Manchester United (Gameweek 17)
  • Burnley v Watford (Gameweek 17)
  • Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur (Gameweek 17)
  • Aston Villa v Burnley (Gameweek 18)
  • Everton v Leicester City (Gameweek 18)
  • Manchester United v Brighton and Hove Albion (Gameweek 18)
  • Southampton v Brentford (Gameweek 18)
  • Watford v Crystal Palace (Gameweek 18)
  • West Ham United v Norwich City (Gameweek 18)

In a statement released this evening, the Premier League said:

It was confirmed at a Premier League club meeting today that while recognising a number of clubs are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and challenges, it is the League’s collective intention to continue the current fixture schedule where safely possible.

The health and wellbeing of all concerned remains our priority and the League will continue to monitor and reflect public health guidance, always proceeding with caution.

A range of issues were discussed at this afternoon’s meeting, including the adaption of the Premier League COVID-19 postponement process in response to the impact of the Omicron variant.

The League also confirmed to its clubs today that 92 per cent of players and club staff have received one, two or three COVID-19 vaccination doses, with 84 per cent of players on the vaccination journey. Players who have had one or two doses are required to wait for the appropriate time period before receiving either their second or booster vaccinations.

The League continues to work with clubs to encourage vaccination among players and club staff, as well as promoting the Government’s public-health vaccination messaging to clubs and the wider public. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League, and player vaccination rates will now be publicly communicated at the end of each month, beginning in January.

Most Premier League clubs are due to play three times between Boxing Day and January 2nd, and despite the decision to continue as planned, there are surely likely to be more postponements in the weeks ahead.

Because of that, saving our transfers till as close to the FPL deadline as possible is of course advisable, as is bulking up our benches to hopefully cover for any unannounced absentees.

TOTTENHAM OUT OF EUROPE

Who has the best FPL fixtures in the next six Gameweeks and beyond? 2

Tottenham Hotspur are out of the Europa Conference League after UEFA ruled they forfeited their final match against Rennes. The fixture – originally due to take place on December 9th – was called off following a Covid outbreak at the London club, with 13 positive cases reported. UEFA then said the match could not be rescheduled and passed the matter on to its disciplinary board. Now, they have handed Rennes a 3-0 win, which knocks Spurs out as they finished third in the group.

“We are disappointed by the ruling of the UEFA Appeals Body and the refusal to allow more time for the match to be rescheduled. We have to accept this ruling, however, and our focus now turns to the competitions we remain in.” – Tottenham Hotspur

For FPL managers, it certainly boosts the appeal of Spurs’ Fantasy assets in 2022, as they will now be handed further rest and preparation time for Premier League matches once European competition recommences in February.

Antonio Conte’s side have won three and drawn two of the Italian’s five Premier League matches so far, scoring nine and conceding just three, with the likes of Sergio Reguilon (£5.2m) and Son Heung-min (£10.3m) thriving under their new boss.

FODEN AND GREALISH DROPPED FOR DISCIPLINARY REASONS?

The best FPL midfielders for a Gameweek 8 Wildcard 6

As reported by the Manchester Evening News earlier today, Pep Guardiola has suggested that some players did not feature in Gameweek 18 due to disciplinary reasons.

Phil Foden (£8.1m), Jack Grealish (£7.6m) and John Stones (£5.3m) were the three players that dropped to the bench following the midweek win over Leeds United, though the latter did make an appearance in the second-half at Newcastle United, replacing Ruben Dias (£6.1m) after 69 minutes.

Having been asked about the changes, Guardiola told 5 Live Sport:

“Not rotation, no. I decided for this team because they deserved to play, these guys and not the other ones. At Christmas time I pay a lot of attention to behaviour on and off the pitch. And when off the pitch is not proper they are not going to play. So, we have to be focused all the time because of distractions at Christmas time and everything that happens – you have to still be focused.”

That indicates Foden and Grealish may be the players omitted for disciplinary reasons, though it remains to be seen if the punishment ends there, or if they will miss further games over the festive period.

Guardiola was also asked about Kyle Walker (£5.5m) after the 4-0 win over Newcastle, and replied:

“He didn’t feel good today.”

The club later clarified that he was ill and had been since last week, though they did refuse to comment on whether his absence was Covid-related, on the grounds of medical confidentiality.

    Time to drop bilva now that KDB is starting again?
    A) yes
    B) no

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 4 Years

      Yes

    2. Amartey Partey
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I’m giving him one more chance. Leicester at home is a good fixture for Bilva.

    3. F4L
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      not sure KDB affects Bernardo much tbh

    4. No Professionals
      • 6 Years

      By the time we get to Sunday, I can’t imagine bilva will be a priority transfer

        Totally agree with you.
        Pointless talking about future transfers - Everyone should enjoy the festive season & pick up on Boxing Day morning to reassess

    Disaster lads

    Last 4 wks iv let a 50 pt lead in ML slip to 10 behind.. That's including a 'perfect' WC just b4 covid ruined everything.

    Also dropped rank frm 34k to 173k

    Really feel deflated right now.

    1. TorresMagic™

      All thanks to Ronaldo.

      Feel for you bro, in a similar boat, gone from 2k to 60k. Kane did it for me

    3. Ian J

      • 7 Years

      Don’t let it get to you. Me and many others are with you. Ignore the lucky ones that rose. You are still in a fantastic position & your skill got you there before covid bad luck. Re-focus, take it easy, don’t rush any decisions & you’ll do great.

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks guys

    4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Feel much the same, had a 20pt lead in one minileague and am now 45pts behind and my overall rank has nearly tripled since GW13. Had a bad run of luck with postponements while my rival was only affected this week and still had 11 without needing a transfer. Let's hope a little bit of luck comes back on our side soon enough

    5. The Polymath
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Same here 100k to 400k. 68 points behind ML leader.

    6. Firminooooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      My differential captain picks didn’t pay off and lost over 50 points to most. Just starting to crawl back. Now 65k OR and feel ok.

  4. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Best defender up to 5m A) Davies b) Sais c) telles d) tierney (but already have laca & ESr) or f) other? Thanks

    1. DavvaMC

      1. European Bob

        Thanks great value

    3. F4L
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Probably Cash, shame you don't have .2 for Reguilon. Honestly still love Ait-Nouri as an option although his injury really cost me these last 2 GWs 😥

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        I like cash but difficult game v Chelsea

        really? if Tierney is the same price and not injured?

      2. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Thanks good Option too but was worried about having 3 arsenal players in case of postponement

  5. Kryptonite666
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Would you roll here or make any changes ?

    Ramsdale
    TAA Canceo James (Livramento) (Veltman)
    Salah Jota Bernardo Foden (ESR)
    Antonio Lacazette Dennis

    2.4 ITB, 1 FT.

    Only thing I can think of is Bernardo to Son for upcoming doubles or upgrade Veltman/ Livramento on bench.

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Bernardo to Son

      1. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Reason: Spurs out of Europe, Son nailed and goal threat, KdB reduces Bernardo attacking positional play, and Pep Roulette.

      2. Deer-in-headlights
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Probably a little short on cash to do that one.

        1. Sheffield Wednesday
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          I was agreeing with the OP's suggestion, but you're right it would have to involve a couple of transfers so not this week to avoid a hit.

  6. DA Minnion (Former great)
    • 11 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Can I save this week?
    Ramsdale
    Trent Cancelo James (Coady )
    Foden Silva Jota Salah
    Lacazette Watkins/Dennis

    Duffy Watkins/Dennis/Coady Bissouma

    1. No Professionals
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Based on where we are today… yes.

      Covid will derail that though.

  7. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Would you roll FT on this team? ESR* Bernardo* may start from bench.

    Ramsdale
    TAA James Cancelo Dalot
    Salah Jota Foden Bernardo* ESR*
    Antonio

    Raya* Watkins Targett Hwang*

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 15 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      You can add Foden & Antonio (if plays midweek).

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Potentially yes ... take many hits? But no guarantee in this climate I guess.

        1. Ian J
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Don’t make any moves to morning if next game. I made 5 transfers last week & only 1 point Davies played. Enjoy xmas

  8. schlupptheweek
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Which striker from another league (who isn't Lewandowski, Haaland, Benzema level) would you most like to see in the premier league for FPL purposes. I'd like to see Anthony Modeste from FC Köln although he's quite old (33). His Bundesliga record is fantastic despite not playing for top teams and his heading ability is even better than Jota.

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Haaland to City !

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Sheesh, misread your post

        1. schlupptheweek
          • 9 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          No worries, Haaland to City would probably mean that you could give 100pts to City before the season is even started!

    2. F4L
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Immobile/Zapata

    3. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Dušan Vlahović without a doubt

      1. Dogs Of War
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Agree with Vlahovic. Class player.

    4. circusmonkey

      We don't want modest returns. Wish I knew more about European strikers. Going to Sevilla v Barca tomorrow, will scout there.

        Nice.

    5. Pukki Party
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I'd like to see someone like Haller (Ajax) try a good mid table side like West Ham, think he would do well.

      1. Dthinger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        ahahahaha!

      2. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Good shout. Also, Choupo-Moting at Bayern would tear it up in England.

      3. Hangman Page
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Crazy how little patience Haller was shown by West Ham. Even during his “failed” stint there he showed some lovely touches and goals. Sure he scored a cracking overhead kick on one occasion.

    6. sirmorbach
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Jonathan David would be a good shout as well

    7. Dthinger

      Tammy Abraham?

    Assuming covid doesn't derail anything this week, would you save the FT?

      Yes absolutely

  10. F4L
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Best teams to load up on in the second half of the season outside of City/Pool/Chelsea? Spurs and Arsenal both vying for 4th with no Europe, maybe Newcastle if they get some new recruits in?

    1. mdm
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      West Ham and Everton

      1. F4L
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        good shout with Everton, West Ham still look tired as a unit imo and struggling with injuries

        1. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years

          Does the kid Braithwaite have a chance of playing regularly?

        2. Dthinger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          agreed. West Ham are sliding

      2. Dthinger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Everton only if they get DCL back

    2. Dogs Of War
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Everton and Villa

    3. European Bob
      • 12 Years

      Manchester United

  11. School of Poch

    What games are currently looking like they’ll be off this GW?

    1. mdm

      Only Leeds for now

    2. RUUD!

      • 12 Years

      As it currently stands all 10 potentially at risk. 90 confirmed cases this week.

      1. FCSB
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        But doesn’t the 90 include Sue in the canteen?

        1. Ian J
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Norwich… only saying that as ML rivals all loaded up on their mids

    3. No Professionals
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Chelsea must be at risk, probably early in their cycle

  13. Van der Faart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Question: does the goals conceded in the GW for the Cup count for all players or just defenders and GKs?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Just the ones at the back.

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Weird then, because I conceded less but he went through on virtual coin toss.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Can’t check. You haven’t linked your team. But then you know that.

          1. Van der Faart
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 years, 6 months ago

            My mistake it was 2-2 not 2-3. Move on nothing to see here.

    2. FPL Theorist
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      It's got to be all players. I was eliminated in GW17 on goals conceded with the same number conceded by my defs and GK as opponent, but I had a mid and a forward who conceded goals.

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        If it is all players then I should be going through.

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Ah thanks.

  14. Paqueta Rice
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    My cup opponent got through the last round by virtual coin toss! He also has treble Chelsea defence. I feel like I should bench my double Chelsea defence and hedge my bets that way.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Quite an interesting strategy.

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Its a bold strategy Cotton, let's see if it pays off

      Im out GW 18 after my opponent scored 94 points, captaining Cancelo and with Dias, James, Rudiger and TAA at the back, Mendy in goal, Raph, Jota and Son in midfield...

      1. Paqueta Rice
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Wowza, what a score

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        I lost with 9 pts against FH-team. C Cancelo would have been needed, but c'est vla vie.

    Laca to Watkins after GW20 if fit and AV playing?
    Not many options up front I recon.

    1. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Sorry after GW19

    2. Chasing last week
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Yep good option if they play

    3. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Y

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      DCL is a possibility, haven't checked fixtures yet.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Yeah, both could be good

    5. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I am also considering to keep that spot. MCI rotation is annoying, Ars fixtures aren't too good and Mount is question mark, with possible blanks and sour fixtures.

  16. Pep's Money Laundry
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Start one?

    A. Toney (bri)
    B. Raphinha (liv)
    C. Dennis (wol)

    1. Chasing last week
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Raph consistent

    2. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      C

    3. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      C

    4. JUNITED
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Not C. Wolves can be tough to breakthrough

  17. The-Red-1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Which transfer would you prioritise?

    James to Reguilon (James poor form, worsening fixtures, blanks)

    Bilva to Saka (Bilva impact dented by KDB, pep roulette)

    1. Firmino
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Save

    2. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      You're a tough manager indeed if you're calling out James for poor form.

    3. Not again Shirley
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      As others have said, James has just posted a 7 and 6 plus he is very attacking for a decent, if not slightly off form, team.

    4. Hangman Page
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Still feel James will end the season among the top four or five scoring defenders and I plan to hold him through his blanks. I like Regulion too, with DGWs in the bank which may appear sooner than Chelsea’s.

  18. Marmalade Forest
    • 7 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    If you had a Wildcard now, would you get in nine or 10 Liverpool/City/Chelsea/Arsenal assets and then with the other five pick Spurs/Brighton/Burnley/Leicester etc. with all their extra games? Or something else?

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I’d be slightly concerned about having triple of any team if I were to wildcard

      1. Marmalade Forest
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        I would too. But can’t not have triple Liverpool can you? Or can you?

  19. Flynny
    • 9 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Does anyone know when salah goes to afcon?

    I might cash in on him for 1 week for the expected dgw 22 ....Good if salah away for that

    1. FPL Insanity
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Think it's after the Chelsea game

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Looks likely somewhere between gw 21 & 22. Players should be released as per fifa tournament rules, 1 week prior to a tournament starting. First match is on 9th Jan.

    3. Fish up a tree
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Thought the first DGW was 21, possible TGW even?

  20. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Can dalot & Davies keep places ? Or too risky getting either?

    1. Dthinger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Davies will keep his spot. Dalot feels risky

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Thanks may go Davies then

  21. Sheffield Wednesday
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    Who scores more:

    Raphinha(liv) or Gallagher(tot)
    Dennis(wol) v Coady(WAT)
    Antonio(SOU) or Watkins(CHE)

    Tempted to bring in Arsenal mid to replace Raphinha because if Leeds don't play I lose 4 players in the fixture with Liverpool triple. But left side of Liverpool defence looks weaker than usual so Raphinha set to exploit (I can hope)

  22. Forever In Our Shadow

    Hey guys. With covid issues aside, what would you do with this lot? 2ft. 0.7ITB. 222k. Thanks.

    Ramsdale Foster

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I would start off loading double CHE defenders

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Basically yes, but Kante is back and it's too early imo. Livra to Dalot/Reguillon is dull move, but needs to be done.

    2. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Bernardo Watkins > Son Broja and play 4-5-1

      1. Sheffield Wednesday
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Correction - dump Foden instead of Bernardo

        1. The Polymath
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Why?

            1. Sheffield Wednesday
              • 4 Years
              2 years, 6 months ago

              And extra money for a £6M striker instead of Broja. e.g. Dennis.

              1. Sheffield Wednesday
                • 4 Years
                2 years, 6 months ago

                So Foden Watkins > Son Dennis

    3. Old Gregg
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Alonso > 4.5

      Davies/Dalot/Coady?

    4. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Thanks guys. Food for thought.

    Feels like there’s no use in discussing who to start at the weekend when it’s just Monday and still many days until Postponment’s roulette

    1. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      It's difficult to get sensible answers late in the week when speculation about postponements is rife. By planning now it's easier to then have contingency plans should the worst happen.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        I agree with this. Closer to deadline people just start asking questions in panic. These earlier times here are usually more fpl obsessed people, who are killing time.

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Think you’re right and it’s just me 🙂

          1. Sheffield Wednesday
            • 4 Years
            2 years, 6 months ago

            Hey this is the internet! You're not supposed to agree with me 😉

            1. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 6 months ago

              I agree that I should have disagreed. But no worries, I do usually disagree 😉

    What are people thinking re foden. Looks likely for a spell on the bench if he's pissed of pep. They are firing with others and have a wealth of options

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I believe he has served his punishment.
