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.

    Watkins to Dennis (-4) Yes or No?

    1. Chris_White
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      No, Watkins likely to have a DGW23 and Dennis only SGW this week

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Other than that though, good plan, yeah?

          No, Villa's fixtures after this week are amazing.

            Joking mate…

      Nah hits aren't worth the risk

  2. Big Ping

    Hi guys, James>Robbo , Son>Jota, or both for a -4 this week?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      -4 pays for itself since the james/son aren't playing but if you own Trent it's an extra transfer to remove one for Salah

  3. Chris_White
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 days, 19 hours ago

    A) Cucurella (Keep Salah)

    B) Maupay (Keep Son)

  4. Hooky
    • 6 Years
    4 days, 19 hours ago

    Lennon (TC) no longer an option?

    1. Not again Shirley
      • 5 Years

      Could be in a few weeks though

  5. zeslinguer

    Hassenhuttel has completely lost his mind. Should be fined for bringing the game into disrepute at this point, what he's saying is tantamount to accusing clubs of match fixing

    1. internal error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Have you got the quotes?

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Well maybe the wording can be whatever but he has a point. This clearly taints the integrity of the competition more over with January signings. Shameful really.

    3. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      4 days, 19 hours ago

      I don't really get why he's mad. His match vs Newcastle isn't the only game that ever got postponed. OK Newcastle can buy players now but it's not much different to teams getting players back from bans or suspensions for a rearrangement that they may originally have missed.

      What do we do, say 'your first choice GK was injured in December so he can't play now that he's fit for the rearrangement in April' or 'your CDM should've served a suspension against us but now that he's served it against someone else, he still shouldn't play against us'.

    Haha did Son to Maddison last night to avoid a price change that didn't happen. I cba man, gonna go grab a drink

      Yh I did the same for a hit

      Could be worse, could be on the Wall!

    4. Sterling Archer

      still making early transfers!

    5. Mortal.Swinbat

      4 days, 19 hours ago

      Literally only have yourself to blame. Anyone who makes transfers before 1 hour before deadline is just being silly at this point, sorry.

      1. Junglist95

          Some people have lives

          1. Sterling Archer
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            But hes actually said he did it so avoid a price change, nothing about being busy at deadline

            1. Jon Snow
              • 6 Years
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              Price rise plus deadline on a busy fri eve and both press conferences went ahead. didn't think it was a completely stupid move

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            no one has lives if they play fpl

            eat. sleep. FPL. repeat.

        • Jon Snow

          Ironically i normally wait last minute, was even caught out by the server shenanigans a few weeks ago. Can't seem to get it right!

      2. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        I did too but honestly it's still not a bad move, not like you moved out someone that was fit or going to play

      3. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Still a good a move anyway. Son is not playing anytime soon and LEI have 4 fixtures to be rearranged

    6. SHOWSTOPPERRR

      Thank God at least Gray is fine.

      I've reached the stage where I'm considering Mac Allister...

      1. Not again Shirley

        Gary?

    8. marpy016
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Given the state of the the GW (thus far) would you play this 11 and roll 1FT?

      DDG

      Cancelo - Reg - TAA

      Jota - Bowen - Foden - Gray

      Antonio - Kane - Dennis

      Sanchez - Keane - Johnson - Son

        Definitely. Team in great shape. (K)ane?

          4 days, 19 hours ago

          Cheers, seems the sensible option

          Yep (K)ane indeed, but will consider Dennis if not guaranteed of a double

          1. Cammick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 19 hours ago

            i still think even if he plays only Newcastle he could still haul

      Triple game week is so passé let’s see that quadruple gw. I want to TC Maddison and get 130 points.

    10. Junglist95
        4 days, 19 hours ago

        Maddison to Bruno for a hit?

        Why not?

        Season is a joke. I jumped early tbf so have a laugh and punt???

        Leicester not the best fixtures coming up tbh

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Keep Maddison he can do well against most teams

          1. Junglist95
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              They also have FOUR matches tbp too in fairness!

          Hi all..crazy times....if Ronaldo out / doubtful, thoughts on:

          Son and Ronaldo to Bruno (c) Watkins  - 4

          Watkins might have a double in gw23....

            Big punt on Bruno.

            He has the track record.

          Is it worth going with this team and having 2FTs next GW or go for a -4 and replace Son and Davis with someone like Moura and King/Dennis? (benching Watkins)

          So, given the total mess the week is now in…!

            Ronaldo I think

              • 9 Years
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              That’s who I’m on now. But no idea if he will play two. Or even one!

            2. EL tridente
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              Bruno

                • 9 Years

            seriously no idea and need to lock it in soon as i'm not getting up at 5am for deadline tomorrow (AU time)

            half tempted by Trent!

            1. james 101
              • 9 Years
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              Trent or Bowen are not bad calls.

              Or Jota.

          If Arsenal don't request a postponement by 6.25pm today, Ronaldo to Kane (c) I think will be the move. Arsenal decimated and Kane set to play two teams he regularly scores against

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

          Watkins Antonio

          Foster / Duffy / Pukki / Salah

          Alternatively Pukki to Dennis seems the right move (even if Watford have only one fixture) but would have to start Dennis and who to drop for him?

          brining in Bruno as a punt is luring me into a dangerous rabbit hole which ill prob regret

            At least that move puts the value in place to move to Salah when he is back, plus he has a double this week and may be playing at the top of the diamond, if Raniek sticks to that. I'm considering this at the moment, Son -> Bruno

              yep that is very true, i also think if we get a ronaldo confirmed out news, it will make this transfer even more appealing

            I am in the same boat but would cost a hit. If no hit involved then I would deffo be tempted.
