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
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      No, I'd keep Tierney long term

      1. VTown
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 19 hours ago

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

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

            Scratch that - Brownhill isn't cover this GW!

            1. VTown
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              Makes the Tierney move more appealing then!

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

    1. Andrew
      • 9 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Spurs v Arsenal I'd guess

    2. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Spurs vs Arsenal, another Burnley game...

  3. Cruyff's Eleven
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 days, 19 hours 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
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Can't tell which defence is more shambolic

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

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

        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. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      106.3 here. What does that make me?

    3. PartyTime
        4 days, 19 hours ago

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

    4. Millie7
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 19 hours 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*

          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.

      2. Matty172
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 19 hours 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
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          no

      3. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 19 hours 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
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 19 hours 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
            4 days, 18 hours ago

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

            1. Salarrivederci
              • 5 Years
              4 days, 18 hours 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
                • 6 Years
                4 days, 18 hours 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
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 19 hours ago

          fair move wouldnt capt him though

      4. abaalan
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

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

        1ft, 3.2 itb

      5. Gooner97
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

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

        1. Bobby_Baggio
          • 10 Years

          lol probably will

      6. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        4 days, 19 hours 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
          4 days, 18 hours ago

          I like B

          Mount being not considered a lot round here

          1. Bobby_Baggio
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            Cheers probably fixtures and blanks but i dont mind him

            1. Gooner97
              • 8 Years
              4 days, 18 hours 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.

          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?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          4 days, 19 hours 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
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 18 hours ago

            He had a release clause which was met.

              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!'

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

          Cheers

          • 8 Years

          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?

          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

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

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

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

            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.

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

          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.

            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'.

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

            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.

            Which move?

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

            Thanks.

            On a free hit, would you go Bowen for one game or Trossard for two?
