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.

      If that's the case then pep should have shown some courage to completely eliminate them.from match day squad. This is like i hate you when we win 4-0 and I love you when we trail.

    Hi all,

    Thoughts?

    Ramsdale (Sanchez)

    TAA Cancelo James (White Livra)

    Salah Bilva Jota Foden (Brownhill)

    Lacazette Watkins Dennis

    1 FT & 1.2 ITB

    How to get Son or CR7 back in?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Several hits needed for that.. Save FT and reasses next GW.

      1. Moose™
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Bilva and Lacazette surely on the way out.. but, yeah. I think I would save FT.

    2. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      If AFCON goes ahead

      Salah > Son
      Laca > Ron

      1. Moose™
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Short 0.4 for that. Livra to Tsimikas it is.

  9. Salarrivederci

    With 1 FT and 0 ITB what would you do to have the best opportunity to make it through in the cup (without playing chips) 😀
    Players with (*) is our differentials

    My team:
    *Ederson*
    TAA - Cancelo - Rüdiger - *Dias* - *James*
    Salah - Jota - *Saka* - *Ødegaard*
    Ronaldo

    (Ward, *King*, Gilmour, Gelhardt)

      Save for sho

    2. Gunners in Haaland
      • 4 Years

      If you are happy with Sterling, yes

  11. Wild Rover
    • 13 Years
    2 years, 6 months ago

    So many people asking what to do with their teams. Have they forgotten already what happened last week? I'd be amazed if there are no postponements this week. It's madness to do anything before Sunday morning.

    1. Moose™
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I guess it was not so much harm to gather early thoughts from others?

    2. AC Yew
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      apparently I've got 11 starters and a playing bench haha! Lets see what i'll end up with

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

      So many people asking why everyone is making plans.

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

        Note: no one is advocating making early moves.

        1. @persecuted_by_mods
            2 years, 6 months ago

            I am, I'm too crap to rise up the ranks any other way so I need to rely on other people making bad decisions

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

        There was discussion about this earlier. Atm it is possible to get decent answers here, just before deadline not. Therefore it is good to be ready to react in short notice and have plans for different scenarios.

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

        No early transfers should be done yes.
        But gathering some advices and opinions is always nice

    4. AC Yew
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Hi all!
      Got a few questions. On a WC would you keep or lose the following:

      1- Raphinha - ticking over nicely
      2- Rudiger - no other Chelsea
      3 - Jota - Own Salah & TAA. If AFCON goes ahead will swop Salah for Jota
      4- Antonio - Owned since GW1!!!
      5 - Gallagher

      1. Team Bobcat
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        If you are on WC it make sense to drop jota for Tsimikas whom if starts should keep pace with him.

        The Che conudrum is one thats not so simple as they should improve defensively now that kante is back. I would still drop on WC.

        Antonio Gallagher Raph still sound picks

        1. AC Yew
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Thanks! Yes I'm happy to hold Raph + Gall not sure about Antonio, really not keen on any other forwards.
          Not keen on Tsimi started the season off with him, and he got stuck in my team for a lot longer than Id liked, concerned about a repeat. How many games is he likely to play?

      2. Dammit_182
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Just an idea….some teams have a stack of matches to re-schedule (Burnley & Spurs I’m particular). I’m looking to bring in Lowton for the 5th def slot and Son/Regi given their short term fixtures and the doubles. Not necessarily the question you asked but having one eye on possible future doubles with your WC might set you up nicely.

        Raph is a hold IMO. No harm in keeping Gallagher either - both very good value pics with fixtures to boot. I love the Tsimicas pick from the message above too.

        Out of interest, are you going for Ronaldo???

        1. AC Yew
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Hi.
          I think it was you who I replied to on the message below lol. Ideally it would be a good idea to keep an eye on future doubles but I cant think that far ahead lol and nothing is concrete yet.
          I am in agreement with your comments on Raph + Gall being great value picks hence keen to keep.
          Unfortunately, I am unable to field a balanced team owning Ronaldo, as I will have Son, Salah, Dias, Cancelo & Jota. Personally, I do not think he is worth his price tag anyway. Not sure if any other Man U assets are worth it. I will bring in DDG again to cover the fixtures.
          Do you still have your WC?

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

        Raph possibly hold but certainly other options and can bring back on transfer
        Rudiger sell. I’d lose all chelsea but appreciate some have money tied up.
        Jota “must own” if afcon does ahead. With the likes of vvd Fabinho Thiago out, I wouldn’t consider Tsimikas for a short term punt, clean sheets less likely
        Antonio, personal preference if you think he will finally turn it around. Don’t pay attention to value given current situation
        Gallagher, I like him and you know he plays full 90

        1. AC Yew
          • 5 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          I dont have much value tied in Rudiger so not worried. Thinking either Cash or White as replacements?
          Very valid point about the lack of CS for Pool.
          Jota is just a case of do I keep him alongside Salah on WC or downgrade Salah for him if AFCON still goes ahead.
          Thank your for replying!

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

            Cheers. I’m actually considering selling Salah for Son but concerned he only drops a little then I’m spending 0.4 more to buy back.
            I own White. If those fixtures were accurate I’d probably sell but on wc I know you need to plan longer.

    5. Team Bobcat
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Ronaldo still stealing Kanes thunder. Spurs were far from impressive before the Liverpool game where they had a huge advantage as they were rested.

      On the flip side Kane looked hungry and could have scored alot more points. A sneaky punt on him over Ronaldo appeals at the minute.

      Cheaper too

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

        Recency bias? Son looked good also and he is cheaper than Kane. If Afcon is on, there is a case to have them all.

        1. Team Bobcat
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          There may be a case for both in time but in the short term at one is an option.

      2. Jonesfromthere
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Many have been burned by him and Son has 3 in 3, I can't go back to Kane but can see the appeal somewhat.

        1. Team Bobcat
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          This game can be gas sometimes. When a player burns you we remember.

          Foden has burnt me in the recent past and I then like in you case can see his appeal but not for me thanks 🙂

      3. AC Yew
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        I would much prefer to own Son over Kane. How about Son + Ron lol

        1. Dammit_182
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          If you can field a decent team, with deep squad and salah, son, Ronaldo, TAA & Cancello then do share.

          1. AC Yew
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 6 months ago

            I am currently working on one without Ronaldo which is very doable. Can only squeeze in Ron if Salah goes to AFCON lol.

            1. Dammit_182
              • 3 Years
              2 years, 6 months ago

              Haha, think that’s going to be the switch for many. Salah down then Dennis to Ronaldo to clear out my AFCON players.

              Hopefully he does not go too nuts at Newcastle

        2. Team Bobcat
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          One could be trouble enough two sounds like double trouble

          1. AC Yew
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 6 months ago

            As long as the points keep coming in we welcome that sort of trouble!

    6. matiakez
      • 13 Years

      Best thing to save the free here?

      Ramsdale
      TAA James Cancelo Reguillon
      Salah Jota Foden Odegaard
      Antonio Lacca

      Dennis Brownhill Livra

      Have the money to go Foden to Son which is tempting but feels like restocking with 2 frees is more sensible?

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Easy to wait now until you need to take hits to field starting XI.

    7. Tommo1212

      Waiting for the Presser obvs,,,,,but if DCL is back for next game week....potentially a great option?

      1. matiakez
        • 13 Years

        I'd give him one more week just to assess, surely going to be pretty rusty.

      Ramsdale, Foster
      Alonso, James, TAA, Cancelo, Bavies
      Odegaard, Jota, Bernardo, Raphina, Salah
      Wilson, Watkins, Pukki

      I so rarely roll a transfer but is there anything worth considering, before COVID inevitably charges that. West Ham look appealing of course.

    9. KirkhamWesham
      • 3 Years

      At this moment of time, which player would you ship?

      1. Bilva
      2. Foden
      3. Raphinha

      1. Abra Dubravka
        • 5 Years

        Foden but would wait to hear more

    10. gellinmagellan

      Ramsdale
      TAA James Cancelo White
      Salah Saka Foden Jota

      Foster Galla Livra Scarlett

      1 FT 3.9 ITB. What would you do? Any suggestions?

      1. Abra Dubravka

      • 12 Years

      Do we expect Broja to continue to get regular game time for Saints?

      Considering reversing my GW17 transfer and bringing him back in (for Watkins) as an enabler to get Son

      1. Team Bobcat

        I think he will as they struggle gor goals. But all three saints forwards seem injury prone

      Keep hearing talk about a double gameweek in GW22. How likely is this?

        GW22 looks like the obvious GW for the PL to rearrange fixtures. Some teams are also likely to have a DGW 21 or even a treble that GW, but obviously it depends on the virus.

      Ramsdale (Guaita)
      James, TAA, Cancelo, Dias (Livramento)
      Salah, Bilva, Raph, Bowen (Gallagher)
      Laca, Antonio (Scarlett).

      What should be a priority?
      Worried about not having triple Liverpool.

        You could do livra to Tsimicas if you wanted tripper Liverpool?

      I bagged 79 pts in GW18 thanks in the main to Capt Cancello. Undecided about GW19… any thoughts on my projected lineup? Do I leave 2 Watford strikers in the bench? Sa over Sanchez in goal? I have one free transfer but I’d tather save it for a slushy Winter’s day…

      Sa
      TAA, White, Cancello, James
      ESR, Jota, Son, Salah, Bowen
      Watkins

      Bench: Sanchez, Dennis, King, Livo

      Best Wilson replacement for one week only? 7.6m budget? Not enough to get Antonio and so maybe Jimi?

      1. Do I Not Like Orange

        2 years, 6 months ago

        If there's no standout candidate why not keep Wilson? Newcastle are crap but could have easily had a pen vs City and Man Utd aren't exactly watertight.

        1. Jet5605
          • 9 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Yeah that's fair but if Jimi scored in a 1-0 win against Watford he could easily get 3 BAPS

      The possible DGW 21 & 22 by lord @BenCrellin

        Spurs and United doubles look plumb

        1. MYNAMEISBigtopmark.sman
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Less than 20%

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 6 months ago

        Doubles looks good for Spurs & Manchester United, and Pool, City and Chelsea don't have great fixtures so if that happens there's going to be plenty of switching between premium assets from those clubs.

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          I'd probably bring in CR7 or Kane and TC them.

      3. Zimo

        Wildcard 21. Bench Boost 22 it is

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

          Nothing could go wrong with this plan.

            Looks tempting.

        Free hit for me.

        Interesting what would you do with Ramsdale??

        1. Rains of Castamere
          • 9 Years
          2 years, 6 months ago

          Probably becomes Lloris for me. Spurs have a backlog of matches, have tightened up under Conte, and Ramsdale blanks in 25.

      6. Rains of Castamere

        I have 3 x Chelsea, 3 x Liverpool, 2 x Arsenal, 2 x City

        All with mostly single gameweeks and all with tough fixtures.

        Definite wildcard scenario, followed by BB.

        1. Zimo

          I'm right with u

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            When will we know the fixtures in GW21 and GW22?

    17. Danstoke82
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      Hi all, trying to plan with fixtures but looks like I’ll only be able to afford one. Which one is more important to bring in?

      A) Son (for Bernardo or Mount)
      B) Ronaldo (for Lacazette)

      Thanks in advance!

      1. Cojones of Destiny
        • 6 Years

        A

      Benching headache incoming! :

      Ramsdale - (Steele)

      Cancelo - TAA - James - Coady - Livramento

      Salah (C) - Foden - Jota - ESR - Bowen

      Watkins - Antonio - Dennis

      Can't decide which to play of Antonio and Watkins - Villa in decent form, Antonio not involved at all lately. Right now I'm looking at a 4-5-1 with Antonio, Dennis and Livra on the bench. What do you think?

      Cheers!

      1. fantasyfog

        Agreed

    19. boc610

      throw Foden a bone, he's in the dog house now

    20. OptimusBlack

      Any
      thoughts ?

      TAA James Cancelo
      Salah Jota Bilva Foden
      Watkins Laca Dennis
      (Cash - Allan - Livra)
      1 FT 0.5 itb

    21. KirkhamWesham
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 6 months ago

      I would think Foden's punishment has been served. He's still a very important player for Pep.

      I would expect him to start.

      1. boc610
        • 12 Years

        owner?

      2. Cojones of Destiny
        • 6 Years

        that's the way

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

        I guess it is one more benching before the sentence has been served.

      4. HonestBlatter

        Finish him

        Like everything it will depend on the Covid/injury situation nd theCovod situation will not be known until the morning of the game which is after the deadline. Sweet

      Hey lads, thinking to save FT here
      Q; Would you play Dennis over any of staring XI?

      Guita
      TAA, James, Cancelo, Tierney
      Salah, Jota, Foden, Bernardo, Saka
      Laca

      Fodder/Dennis, Williams, Armstrong*
