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.

      XD... always wait til game day now I guess

    Yep free hit off. Son/Locadia (don’t ask) > Bowen/Dennis. Not chasing the other DGW players and gambling on Ronaldo being fit.

  3. dshv

    From 6 gw’s to 4 … if ronaldo is out this would be a normal gw.

    Cristiano Ronaldo was forced to leave Manchester United's training session early on Thursday after picking up a thigh injury, according to reports. Ronaldo could now be a doubt for the trip to Aston Villa on Saturday. The Portugal superstar is said to have left United's Carrington training base before the other players.

    So come on, who made their transfers yesterday?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Made a transfer this morning since my afternoon is jam packed with meetings - does this count!

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Fair enough. Same last week for me.

    2. teneighty
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Surely no elite manager made any early transfers in this chaos?

    3. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Brought in Maddison last night as I thought I'd have very little phone time today (which didn't end up being the case), ah well. Glad I didn't bring in Dennis as well though!

    4. CRAZY TRAIN

      Yesterday? I did mine last weekend lol

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Game changer.

    5. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Brought in Maddison....but on a wildcard!

      1. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Did you press the button then? I've held off for now

    6. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Son to KDB. No impact whatsoever.

      Already had Maddison and Ronaldo..

      Not too fussed really even if he gets only the Spurs match

    8. MIGHTY JOE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Activated FH early this week. Keep telling myself I had no choice anyway due to 8 (!) flagged players. Ughhhh

    9. Piksau
      • 7 Years

      Made most of mine about 6 hours back in anticipation of a busy work day.

  6. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Since Maddison isn't a dgwer...

    A) Bruno, Maupay
    B) Trossard, Ronaldo
    C) Moura, Ronaldo

    1. Zim0

      Anything that reads "could be" means nothing

    Watford v Burnley off too now surely?

    1. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      One would assume

  9. mad_beer ✅
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Dodged a bullet on this one. But my -8 for Keane and Gray last week still stings.

    1. CRAZY TRAIN
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      -4 for Keane hurt me too (for Rudiger too....and I wasn't even drunk at the time!). Probably my worst transfer this season

  10. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Would you play

    A) Maddison (H TOT)

    or

    B) Bilva (H CHE)

    1. mad_beer ✅
      • 7 Years

    DDG captain anyone?

    1. WHUFCSmith23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Has to be Kane now doesn't it

    2. ChinaShopTaurus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 13 days ago

      I'm on DDG currently. Only have 2 DGW now (DDG & Alonso). What a mess.

  12. balint84
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    is double Watford (king+dennis) legal this week?

  13. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Bruno Captain anyone?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Not confident after his and United's output lately...

    2. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Am tempted,will he play both matches though?

    3. zeslinguer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      played 30 mins in the last two games didn't he?

    4. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years

      Temoted

      1. Mufc202020
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Tempted*

    5. Piksau
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Team looked much better after he was introduced against Wolves...and his first time passing will be key for the pace of Greenwood, Sancho, Rashford, etc.
      Rangnick also hinted he might use a diamond formation going forward, which is ideal for Bruno.

  14. marpy016
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    This is my current lot:

    DDG

    Cancelo - Reg - TAA

    Jota - Bowen - Son - Foden

    Antonio - Kane - Dennis

    Sanchez - Gray - Keane - B Johnson

    With Leicester losing the DGW, and Son replacements uninspiring, reckon I should just roll the FT and play Gray?

    1. balint84
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      play Gray. Who is the captain?

    2. The Big Fella
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Dennis will also lose his DGW

    3. marpy016
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      On Kane (C) at the moment, but could easily be Dennis. Whoever is more likely to keep their double really

  15. The Big Fella
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    I want to get rid of Ronaldo and Son. For Ronaldo, I will bring in DCL as I was going to make this transfer after this weekend anyway even though it feels weird taking a -4 and swapping out a DGW player for a SGW player. For Son, I was going to go for Maddison but he has lost his DGW now, so I don't think he is attractive for a 2-3GW punt. Who else around that price point would be worth bringing in for Son? With the Ronaldo money, I could get anybody. It also looks like Dennis has lost his DGW too, so captaincy will be difficult this week (was Ronaldo, then Dennis and now I have no idea).

  16. LSP
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Play Watkins or Bernardo?

    1. balint84
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      watkins

    2. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Bilva

    3. BERGKOP

    Isolation rules being cut to 5 from Monday - fine balance to when these covid tests came in for Burnely

  18. vincentwsho
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Will we know about the TOT-ARS postponement before the deadline?

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years

      Let me check my magic ball,will tell you in a few

    2. zeslinguer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      your guess is as good as ours

  19. winchester
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Hey lads, have 1ft and 5.6m itb. what move should be done?

    ddg
    taa - cancelo - reguilon
    bernardo - jota - bowen - son*
    antonio - watkins - dennis

    (foster - saka - keane - livra)

    a) livra -> cucurella/lamptey
    b) son -> bruno
    c) watkins -> ronaldo/kane
    d) something else?

  20. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Is Dennis the only real captain choice now?

    1. GS456
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Burnley game in doubt though?

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Oh yea good point! Maybe Bruno captain who is out of form
        And at an out of form team!

    2. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Potential Dennis could only have 1 GW

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Yeh cheers - maybe not then!

    3. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Bruno

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Yeh maybe

  21. Bubz

    I hate this season

    1. zeslinguer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      most fun season ever

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Can’t tell if sarcasm, but it’s really not. The amount of decent player options has been awful all season. Barely any consistently high scoring players. Then there’s the completely pot luck postponements of matches. No fun at all.

        1. zeslinguer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          yeah but when there are consistently high scoring players everyone has them and then everyone moans about 'the template'. I'm really enjoying it tbh, there's so many players to choose from and everyone is making different choices

          1. Bubz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 13 days ago

            I don’t think there’s many players to choose from at all.

            1. zeslinguer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              look through any RMT on here and they are so different from each other compared to other years. it's harder to plan this year, yes, but everyone is in the same boat. I was down to 8 players the other week and still saw a green arrow. If anything the more engaged players benefit massively from this. The casuals probably aren't even aware of the cancellations

    2. denial
      • 13 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah. We've all had bad scoring FPL seasons before, but this is a different beast. Not fun at all.

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Funnily enough I think it's exactly the opposite - really quite fun. Plenty of opportunity for a rank leap .... or regression.

    3. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      This time last week: 8 DGWers
      Now: 3 DGWers

  22. GS456
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Jota captain?

    Ronaldo a doubt, spurs fixture a doubt.

  23. Fuddled FC
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    So does this make a FH better or worse??

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      I dont know,thats how weird this season is

    2. Jambot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Worse imo. Lost a double and nobody had Burnley players anyway

    3. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Worse for sure

    4. Reacher
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      I don't think it changes either way, only Maddison out of the two teams id want and he becomes Bowen easily

      if the NLD goes it will be a different matter but i think it will go ahead

  24. Boom XhakaLacaSaka

    A) FH
    B) Guatia + Antonio -> De Gea + Dennis (-4)

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 2 Years

        Lack of Dennis/King an issue though

    2. Will
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Dalot non starter right?

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Yup tempted dalot > Lamptey

  25. Mufc202020
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    A) Kane + Trossard
    B) Dennis/King + Bruno

    Painful day ahead

    1. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

  26. Francescoli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    On FH, remaining questions:
    - Ronaldo to Lukaku?
    - Trossard or Jorginho?

    DDG
    Alonso Rudiger Emerson
    Fernandes (c) Moura Trossard Mount
    Ronaldo Kane Dennis

    Bachmann Cucurella Sissoko Tsimikas

  27. balint84
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    captain Kane?

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      No,Arsenal game in doubt

    2. Reacher
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Yes until rumors' below are confirmed, which are only rumors

  28. vincentwsho
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Who to start, Reguilon or Cancelo?

  29. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Assuming Arsenal game not called off and Ronaldo has picked up further injury thinking ( already used free transfer to remove Son)

    Mahrez Ronaldo Broja to Bruno Kane Dennis for ( gulp) -12.

    Is this going too far or given present situation could work out

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      guilty of Son>Maddison transfer last night, can now afford Foden>Bruno(c) for a -4, is this a good move?

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Tough- trouble is you will probably want Foden back for good City fixtures- but I am considering Bruno for double then transfer to City player

  30. outernational
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 13 days ago

    Was going to transfer Broja to Dennis for free. Is it still worth it with Watford's second game against Burnley in doubt?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      I think so as still a chance and Watford fixtures good going forward

    2. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Obviously wait as late as you can to do it but I do think it still makes sense as Broja's next 4 fixtures are tough. Was going to do it myself but with things changing so rapidly I'm now not sure I can afford the luxury of transferring out a fit player with a fixture. Other fires need attending to to give me some bench cover
