Double Gameweek 22 match between Burnley and Leicester postponed

Burnley and Leicester City will now only have a ‘single’ Gameweek at best after the Premier League confirmed on Friday that Saturday’s match between the two clubs has been postponed.

This time it was the Clarets who submitted a postponement application due to a number of injuries and Covid-19 cases within their first-team squad.

Sean Dyche’s side are, of course, also scheduled to be in action next Tuesday against Watford, so it remains to be seen whether the situation at Turf Moor has improved sufficiently for that fixture to go ahead.

Leicester’s one and only Gameweek 22 match is now at home to Tottenham Hotspur next Wednesday.

This latest postponement means that Burnley and Leicester now each have four outstanding league fixtures to rearrange, with the Foxes’ Gameweek 27 match against Chelsea now needing to be rescheduled due to the Blues qualifying for the EFL Cup final on the same weekend.

    I need to free up money for Broja to Dennis by downgrading Bernardo. Are there even any good max 6.6 mids to get anymore?

    Actually considering Kovacic (5.0), as he can at least be benched afterwards.

    1. Johan Queef

      Raphinha is 6.5.

    I would find this game much more exciting and rewarding if we had no WC remaining. Would be easier to pick your favourite players, factoring in the number and quality of fixtures, without fixating on when exactly those fixtures might fall and reducing the interesting choices to mix and match players to for new viable strategies!

    Otherwise, I'd be happy with a WC every week!

      Removing the FHs would also be a dream. BB is fine, give us 5 of those if you must! Or ability to break formation when we get into trouble.

      Slightly off-topic haha

      I like FPL without chips. TC and FH aren't attractive enough for me to plan ''light years'' ahead. BB...ok but, ah what the heck! I'm still old grumpy :D. Doesn't matter, I'm not good FPL manager, so what!

    Need that Spurs DGW erased and can comfortably enjoy this GW 😀

  4. Apwilkin

    Who should I start?

    Lloris or Foster?

    1. Johan Queef
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 days, 18 hours ago

      Lloris

  5. Johan Queef

    Absolutely stumped about what to do. Have Salah and Son and always intended to get rid of Son and upgrade Broja to Dennis (C).

    A) Mount
    B) Foden (if fit)

    And is Dennis a crazy captain now if they may end up with a single? Otherwise it'll have to be Jota!

    Thanks!

      if looking short term then Mount should play more mins over the next 3 games, but then forced to sell (maybe for Foden) in 24

    is no one worried lei spurs might still be called off now that rodgers has said he only has 13 senior players on the dot... seems quite likely that one covid case could happen by midweek which would call the whole thing off

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 days, 17 hours ago

      Feel like Rodgers just doesn't want Leicester to play, ever again.

  7. last-picked
    • 12 Years

    Bruno to start?
    Please, why everyone so sure Bruno will play after missing most of last 2 gw's

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 18 hours ago

      Wasnt he suspended for one and they won so then they played same team? He still came on as a sub - I think he'll start.

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 days, 18 hours ago

      McTom suspended so they'll need someone in midfield

      1. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 days, 17 hours ago

        VDB - oh wait, who am I kidding?

  8. Mirkatldn

    No love for Cavani?

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 17 hours ago

      I guess the risk is he doesnt play two up top and Ronaldo the preference if he opts for one

    2. King Carlos
      • 6 Years
      7 days, 17 hours ago

      Likely benched at least one out of two matches

  9. jimbo90
    • 6 Years
    7 days, 17 hours ago

    Would you free hit this team?...

    DDG (Foster)
    Tierney* Dalot* TAA Cancelo (James*)
    Martinelli* Jota Foden* Son* (Sissoko)
    Watkins Ronaldo* Edouard

    Bearing in mind all those starred may not play this week. I know it is unpredictable at the moment but cant see any other option than a free hit. I have 2 FT (as I missed the deadline last week)

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 days, 17 hours ago

      For a -8 you could get a decent team out. Those problems will still be there next week if you free hit. Have you used your first free hit already,?

      1. jimbo90
        • 6 Years
        7 days, 17 hours ago

        No havent used either FH yet. To be fair tierney, martinelli, foden, ronaldo shouldnt be a problem next week. I'd need to ship out james and son obviously

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 days, 17 hours ago

          I'd just ship Son, Édouard, James and Dalot for a -8. Or even just leave Edouard and do the others for a -4.

  10. Mirkatldn
    • 7 Years
    7 days, 17 hours ago

    Thoughts on Free Hit?

    DDG
    Lamptey/Alonso/Trent
    Trossard/Mount/Moura/Bruno
    Ronaldo/King/Kane

    Any clear changes considering NLD / Burn-Wat potentially in doubt? Cheers!

  11. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 days, 17 hours ago

    Best Livra replacement this week? Money no issue. Have Trent, Alonso, Coufal and Cancelo already.
    Thinking maybe Lamptey or Reguilon.

    1. Gizzachance
      • 7 Years
      7 days, 17 hours ago

      Reg or royal

    2. Gubby-Allen
        7 days, 16 hours ago

        Yes Lamptey, a Brighton defender seems wise. I think Villa will score against Man Utd

    3. Threat Level Midnight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 days, 17 hours ago

      Son/Antonio>>M

      1. Threat Level Midnight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 days, 17 hours ago

        Mount/Kane for free?

        Not sure what happened there

        1. StoneMountain
          • 6 Years
          7 days, 17 hours ago

          I’m thinking similar only concerns are Spurs/Arsenal cancellation and Antonio’s plum fixture. Also, considering going Ronaldo instead of Kane after Rangnick’s comments.

    4. karno123
        7 days, 17 hours ago

        Emerson or Reguilon for a FT?

      • NachoMan
        • 6 Years
        7 days, 16 hours ago

        Can someone clevererer than I explain why Lukaku isn't a good shout this week? Am I missing something?

        1. StoneMountain
          • 6 Years
          7 days, 16 hours ago

          Ronaldo and Kane seem to be more preferred.

        2. kbaby901

          Dennis king

        Talk me off the ledge about doing my Son to Maddison transfer (free) last night.
        Telling myself he'll still have a bonus 4 fixtures at some point.
        But now I have only 3 DGW players, so wondering if a -4 to ship out Dier is worthwhile?

      • buttsy9
        • 9 Years
        7 days, 16 hours ago

        I have two FT transfers but if I play free hit what am I left with next week?

        1. ttk3vols
          • 11 Years
          7 days, 16 hours ago

          If you free hit, then the next week you would only have 1 FT

      • Gubby-Allen
          7 days, 16 hours ago

          Dier is out for a month now too.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 days, 15 hours ago

          Who is the best Son replacement?

          This GW is taking the p!ss

        • Wolfman180
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 days, 15 hours ago

          Son, Davis, Johnson to Moura, DCL, Cucurella for a -8?? Yes or no?

        • mgilbert86
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 days, 15 hours ago

          Didn't Trossard go big the last double gameweek he had?

          Seems an interesting punt

        • Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 days, 15 hours ago

          Pick 1 to play (and the rest will be benched)

          A) Maddison
          B) Foden
          C) Watkins

          Cheers

        • OptimusBlack
          • 8 Years
          7 days, 15 hours ago

          Who out for Dennis ?
          A- Antonio
          B- Watkins

          1. Gooner97
            • 8 Years
            7 days, 14 hours ago

            Antonio

          Did Ronaldo just pick up another injury? Saw a tweet by express sport.

        • paul1964
          • 11 Years

          If Burnley hadn't sold Wood they'd have had one more player... just saying.

          Those with no players from this game, any goal will be good
