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.

    Wouldnt have thought week a go that I would be considering bringing in Bruno and already have Ronaldo....

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Will you have Bruno in your team next week if Ronaldo is back?

      1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        probably transferring to KdB then if I make the Bruno move

  2. Cruyff's Eleven
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    KDB will shred Chelsea in the only game this week..

  3. Mr Ozil

    Is Son + Salah > Jota + Trossard worth -4?

    1. Marty McFly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Jota and Trossard are more or less guaranteed to score 4 points more than Salah and Son.

  4. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    So Burnley are allowed to sell a fit Wood then claim they haven't got enough players. WTF

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

      WTF, they had no choice it was a release clause. WTF omg

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

        Supposedly the release clause was only active in the summer transfer window... But who knows , really.

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

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

        I don't think that's certain yet, but very likely.

  9. Fpl_Ludwig

    I’m taking a big risk and BB this week
    Should i stick with maddison or take him out for a hit and then get Trossard/Lucas moura

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

      Don't BB please

    2. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That's crazy...

    3. zeslinguer

      lunacy

    4. BERGKOP

      That will only work out for us

  10. MIGHTY JOE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    OK lads.
    Would you gamble on ars-tot being played? Currently with 3 spurs players on FH.

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

      Arsenal definitely will seek a postponement tbh

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      12 fit players. Looks tough.

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

      No for me.

    4. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Such a massive season defining game. If Arsenal are close to the threshold then they will do all they can to get game postponed and get Partey Odegaard and Xhaka back

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

        Cheers guys. Its sensible but still hurts.
        Think I'll just start Kane and bench L.Moura for Bowen.

        Any suggestions on who to replace E.Royal with? Already on TAA & Rudiger.

        1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Cucurella?

  11. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Maddison still good as Son replacement...yay or nay?

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

      Yes

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

      Think so, great form

      1. james 101
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Yep

        1. EL tridente
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Leicester got some pretty tough fixtures coming up… From GW 28 Maddison could be a season keeper

          1. james 101
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            V good value

            Tiels is an option also

    3. BERGKOP
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Yes

    4. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Yes. I actually got him in early, still think he could be decent

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

      yep but i think i may hold till gw 28 or so , will re assess after conferences today

  12. james 101
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Do we still think Chelsea play twice?

    If so how about a maverick Mount captainship?!

  13. ronty
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Since plan anyways is to bring back Mo likely for 24, thinking of going safety first.

    Son --> Bruno (if CR7 is confirmed out)
    CR7 --> Maupay
    Ramsdale --> DDG

    Will be for a -8 but with Ramsdale/Foster, I potentially have no GK.

    This DGW is already a doubtful mess.

    1. DayOldBlues
        7 months, 6 days ago

        I'm thinking similar... Trossard and CR7 or Bruno and Maupay depending on the press conf

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

      Is it even mad to take hits now?

      I wanted to bring in Kane but not sure anymore. (Don’t ask about the 0FT!)

      0FT 6.0ITB
      DE GEA
      RUDIGER Trent Cancelo
      Jota Maddison Bowen Gundogan
      KING Antonio Edouard

      Steele Johnson Son* Livramento*

      Cheers!

        I might not even bother making a transfer now, the way this is going.

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          I’m starting to come round to that way of thinking too

      Yeah, it's official.

      This forum and it's members have gone potty...

      1. james 101

        “Gone” potty?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

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

            Or "more potty"?

            • 10 Years

          7 months, 6 days ago

          From what I've seen and heard it's not what it was or is cracked up to be.

          Glad I found it though

          Such is the landscape with the likes of Maupay on a FH. With Chelsea as one of their games too! (Not that Chelsea def are unbeatable anymore)

        • ronty
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          I will be back when Maupay has his double hatty to hand over the potty 😉

            • 4 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Yeah, while looking at your team with Maupay and Trossard...

            1. Cruyff's Eleven
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              7 months, 6 days ago

              I don't have Trossard mate. Must be your imagination.

                You know what I mean....

                No need to worry about minor details.

      4. HD7

        Son to Bruno or Jota?

        1. baconbap25
          • 1 Year

          Jota

          Jota

      5. Junglist95
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Salah to Bruno (c) for a hit?

          Surely if Ronaldo is out Bruno has to be focal point as a starter?

        • Stranger Mings
          • 1 Year

          Given my mount posting fail.. In a all seriousness is he an option over the likes of Bruno or trossard?

          1. james 101
            • 10 Years

            Just asked similar above mate.

                  Looking at recent games he has had some rest so maybe worth getting

          I give up and will not make any transfers, this is the team in a 'mess':

          Lloris (Ramsdale)
          TAA Cancelo Keane Dalot (Tsimikas)
          Foden Jota Bowen (Bernardo Martinelli)
          Ronaldo Antonio Watkins

          With Ronaldo situation, best captain?
          A. Lloris 😛
          B. Jota
          C. Bowen
          D. Others (incl. FT in if needed)

          This website sucks this year...http://www.fplstatistics.co.uk/

          Did SOn out to Maddy last night due to price rise and fall on the website so 0.2 swing which would have affected other moves!! Now as a result I didnt wait until today and have burnt a transfer getting a SGW player in instead of DGW!!

          Lssson learned, forget websites like these and just wait until deadline moving forward no matter what!!

            Did the same, we knew the risks. Still not a terrible transfer

          4. Mortal.Swinbat

            7 months, 6 days ago

            Fplstatistics is absolutely fine, you just need to learn

            a) Don't make early transfers this season, that should be obvious by now

            b) Price change websites can be affected heavily when WC's are in use, everyone has just got their second Wild Card so take into account a lot will be using theirs. Transfers made on a WC mess up the players bought in/price rise ratio

            Yes can't rely on it in weeks where lots of FH/WC active

        • Flynny
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Broja to Dennis potentially for a hit still worth it?

          Even if Watford don't have a double, they will have 3 fixtures to rearrange......thanks

            • 1 Year

            Don't think so, was going to do it but am pulling away from it now (that being said I have King already)

          With Leicester game off, which mid to bring for Salah instead of Maddison? Got Jota, Foden, Gray, Bowen.

          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/kdb
          c) watkins -> ronaldo/kane
          d) something else?

          Do we still think Chelsea play twice?

          If so how about a maverick Mount captainship?!!

                Surely Cap TAA, Bowen or Jota

          I can't see NLD being played, and Burnley - Watford in risk now.
          0 FTs and 4.9 ITB
          2 FH's and TC left.

          Just field this team?

          San(C)hez
          TAA - Cancelo - E.Royal
          Jota - Maddison - Bowen - Gray
          Kane - DCL - Antonio

          (Pickford, Coufal, Lowton, Ramsey)

          1. Mr Ozil
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Yes
            Just field this team

        • EL tridente
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Will probably just do Son to Bruno. And then Easy switch when Salah is back
