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.

    Tierney to Cucurella for free?

    1. Gooner97
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      No, I'd keep Tierney long term

      1. VTown
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Just worried that their fixture will be postponed and he's my only bench cover other than brownhill

        1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Not sure Brownhill starts these days (although he might due to others testing +/ve)

          1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Scratch that - Brownhill isn't cover this GW!

            1. VTown
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 6 days ago

              Makes the Tierney move more appealing then!

  2. The Bad Seed
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    So what are the games most LIKELY to be called off?
    Let's start there... thoughts?

    1. Andrew
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Spurs v Arsenal I'd guess

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Spurs vs Arsenal, another Burnley game...

  3. Cruyff's Eleven
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    How about starting Foster over DDG?

    No harm, no foul if he doesn't start and on paper Watford have better fixtures than ManU..

    1. Gooner97
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Can't tell which defence is more shambolic

    2. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      United have a higher chance of playing twice this GW regardless.

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah, good call. Why add more uncertainty.

        Thanks mate.

    Appreciate thoughts on DCL or Antonio? I already have Bowen . Thank you

    What's everyone's team value? Feel like that is a good representation of how much of a risk taker you are. Mine is 105.5. I used to be quite risky but I haven't made any early transfers for a good month now because of all this.

    1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      106.3 here. What does that make me?

      1. 1-1 at Newcastle
        • 9 Years

        Early transfer, bandwagon hopper?

      103.6

    3. PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      106.4 played my 2 wildcards & Second free hit this gameweek. Do I win the contest?

  6. Millie7
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Still have Son and Salah and 1FT ... I can't think of anyone else that i want in the long run now that maddison is a no?

    mids currently:

    Jota - Gray - Bowen - Salah* - Son*

    1. Devos
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      KDB

    2. Marknlard
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Same midfield as me. I was going to free hit and wait it out for Son and Salah to be back - but now I don't know.

  7. Matty172
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Thought on if I need any hits here?

    DDG
    Cancelo, Cucurella, TAA
    Bruno, Madd, Gray, Bilva
    Antonio, Kane, Dennis
    (Bachman, Martinelli, Williams, Livra)

    Debating Bilva->Jota for -4

    1. Millie7
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      no

  8. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    After Son to Maddison I will probably do also that Broja to Dennis move and (c) him. Just a game after all and I'd rather gamble on Dennis having DGW than Ronaldo being fit for both games.

    1. 1-1 at Newcastle
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      If Burnley have requested the game off Saturday due to a lack of players and COVID ripping through their team. The chances they will be ready to play 3 days later is slim to none surely?

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Game is on Tuesday, covid cases are form last GW.

        1. Salarrivederci
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          They still have to be back in training and the board must decide in the end.
          Say they are 'ready' to train monday, then surely the match won't be played tuesday?

          Still think Burnley - Watford looks more likely than Arsenal - Spurs

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            True, but without a game on Saturday they could train Monday.

            But that preparation point is subjective.

            Also, why wouldn't Burnley wait until Cornet is back?

    2. Bobby_Baggio
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      fair move wouldnt capt him though

  9. abaalan
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    A) Livra -> Cucurella
    B) Livra -> Reguillon
    C) Saka -> Moura
    D) Watkins -> Dennis
    E) Combination for hit?

    1ft, 3.2 itb

  10. Gooner97
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    We all know deep down, that Marc Allister will be the real saviour for this DGW.

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      lol probably will

  11. Bobby_Baggio
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Morning all. Which one pending news? 2FT + 0m ITB. Cheers.

    DDG
    Reguillon - Lamptey - TAA
    Maddison - Salah - Jota - Son - Bowen
    Antonio - King

    (Foster) - Cancelo - Broja - Livra

    A) Salah > KDB
    B) Salah + Son > KDB + Mount
    C) Salah + Son + Livra > KDB + Bruno + 4m.
    D) Anything else?

    1. Gooner97
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I like B

      Mount being not considered a lot round here

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Cheers probably fixtures and blanks but i dont mind him

        1. Gooner97
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          I did Son to Maddi this night... but if I knew he wouldn't have a DGW anymore, I would have gone Mount honestly.

  12. Gabbiadini
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Who are people captaining?

    1. Bunk Moreland
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      It's a dgw so has to be Gabbiadini (C) 😀

          Is it time for Captain Scarlett?

  13. Johnjo
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Was planning to get one of Ronaldo or Kane to captain for the DGW but both now seem doubtful of playing 2 games. (CR7 injury and NLD doubts)
    Are either still worth getting or should we avoid both now?

  14. The Sun'll Come Out To…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    How is Burnley even allowed to get a game called off for insufficient players after just selling one of their best and healthy players? That's some $@!

    1. 1-1 at Newcastle
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      He had a release clause which was met.

      1. The Sun'll Come Out To…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Oh right. Thanks for clarifying.

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Release clause, they could do nothing about it

      1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Neat little exploit though. 'Sorry, have to postpone the game, we just sold half our U21s who played one game in a Sucky Cup earlier!'

  15. artvandelay316
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 6 days ago

    A) James to Alonso (play instead of Bernardo/Foden)
    B) Salah to Fernandes (play instead of Bernardo/Foden)

    Cheers

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      None of those.

  16. 1-1 at Newcastle
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    I'm having a look at midfielders to replace Son and it is bleak. It could be smart to transfer to a player you plan on having for the next 5 gameweeks anyway. Coutinho or Foden?

  17. greenybne
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Struggling with using one of my Free Hits this week. Already used my FT's to do James and Foden to Jota and Cucurella. 0.2ITB

    Sanchez, (Foster)
    TAA, Cancelo, Cucurella, Regulion, (Livra)
    Bowen, Jota, Gray, (Gallagher, Salah)
    Ronaldo (c), Antonio, Dennis

    FH would be:

    Sanchez, (Foster)
    Taa, RUDIGER, Cucurella, Regulion, (Livra)
    Jota, MOUNT, SANCHO (Gray, SISSOKO)
    Ronaldo, KANE (c), Dennis

    Thoughts?

    Ladies and Gents

    Another splendid game week is almost upon us...

    I am know of the opinion a SGW player is a better captain shout than what's left. I was on Ronaldo, then Maddison, but with the risk of Watford v Burnley adn Spurs v Arse being off I'm now now thinking Bowen or TAA (dont have Bruno or DDG)

    What do you think?
    Team is:
    Sanchez
    Reg TAA Rudiger Coufal
    Bowen Maddison Raphina
    Antonio Ronaldo King
    bench - Cancelo Allan Gallagher

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Think if I had Ronaldo I'd go for him - next best option for you I think is Bowen.

    1. Gooner97
      • 8 Years

      SIUUUUUUM

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Aye. 4 pointer incoming.

        1. Gooner97
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          OK but even if he plays, are we expecting a full 90 for both games?

          1. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            I think that’s what people are counting on, as well as a bumper haul v Brentford.

    2. Gooner97
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Well time to get rid of Bruno then

    3. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      With Chelsea having City during DGW, no DGW for Lei, Spurs nad Watford DGWs in doubt, recon (c) United asset a way to go. Wanted to (c) Dennis but possibly Ronaldo a safer bet now.

      1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Phil Jones eh? Sounds like a candidate to buy and captain 😉

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          DDG 😀

        2. Lallana
          • 8 Years

          I use Phil Jones on FIFA. My club legend.

  19. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    I have a strike force of Watkins, Antonio and Dennis - no free transfers - do you think it's worth a -4 to get Ronaldo or kane in for Watkins or Antonio?
    Watkins may well have a double next week and Antonio has a decent fixture. I'm not sure what to do. Any help appreciated.

    1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      That's my front 3 and I'm quite happy with them. But I have Son to get shot of and don't want to take a hit. So in your position, I'm going 'no'.

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        I have son and Mahrez to sort as well. Who you thinking for son?

    2. Goodfeathers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I wouldn't. I think that's a decent front line for this GW

    3. Apwilkin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Thats my front 3. I have the temptation for this week, but then just remind myself i would most likely want them out of my squad next week.

  20. Nightcrawler
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Going with both bruno and ronaldo on WC

    At least if ronaldo misses out id have bruno on penos

    Bruno to salah whenever he gets back

  21. Lallana
    • 8 Years

    Maupay or King?

      Which move?

      a) Son to Bruno for free.
      b) Son+Eduard to Lucas+CR7 for a hit.

      Thanks.

        Go for Moura
