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.

    Should I bother making any changes / take Son out? or roll FT

    Sanchez (Steele)
    Coufal / Cancelo / TAA (Tierney / Livra)
    Bowen / Silva / Jota / Gray (Son*)
    Dennis / Antonio / Ronaldo

    Only really tempted by Mount, KDB now for FT or Kane for a hit

    Thanks

    This will be the least enthused transfer in of premium ever

  3. dshv

    I can’t understand about Ronaldo.. can someone tell me something clear?

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

      Apparently left training with an injury but not official confirmation

  4. Norco
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Got exact cash for the below, worth to pull the trigger?

    Son + Livra > Bruno + Emerson Royal (-4)

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

      Not sure about Emerson for hit, NLD on the ropes

  5. Ruinenlust
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Will Watford v Burnley game go ahead?

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

      No one knows. Looks a bit iffy to be honest

      1. AC Yew
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Whats the news? Im out of the loop

  6. G Banger
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Either of these make sense (I have Gray and he would likely end up on the bench):

    a) Lacca => DCL
    b) Lacca => Someone else
    c) Son + Lacca => Bruno + DCL (-4)

  7. SensibleSoccerChamp
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Why no love for Kane captain today ?

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

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      NLD in big danger of being called off.

    3. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Low ownership

    4. wulfrunian

  8. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

  9. Magic Zico

    7 months, 6 days ago

    Bench one:
    A. Watkins (MUN)
    B. Bernardo (CHE)
    C. Dalot (avl, bre)

      Brighton Chelsea & United

  13. sirmorbach
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Friends, I was set on Salah-Madders, Broja-Dennis. What to do now with no double for Leicester?

    Lloris
    TAA, Cancelo, Dias, Coufal, Cash
    Salah, Jota, Foden, Bowen, Gray
    Watkins, Antonio, Broja

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

      Salah to Bruno

  14. dshv
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Jota better pick for captain over Ronaldo??

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

    I did Son -> Maddison yesterday night, and wasted a free transfer. Might as well activate my FH now?

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

      Why wasted ?

      Maddison still have a game. Don't panic.

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

        Wasted in terms of DGW matches, beccause I could have gone Moura instead

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

      No. He still has a match to play and the DGW fixtures this week aren't really that juicy. There will be better weeks to use it.

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

      Maddison still has one match afaik

  16. Ruinenlust
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Bruno, Moura or Jota?

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

      Bruno or Jota

    2. Ninja Škrtel
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Jota of course

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

    DDG (Steele)
    TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger (James, Livra)
    Foden, Bernardo, Jota (VC), Bowen (C) (Salah)
    Dennis, Watkins, Antonio

    1) Who would you Captain?
    2) Would you use the FT....
    A) James to Alonso (play instead of Bernardo/Foden)
    B) Salah to Fernandes (play instead of Bernardo/Foden)
    C) Roll FT

  18. Felix Navidad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    One question, i I brought in Maddison from the double fixture earlier today, would using a free hit now revert that change? Or if I free hit I will have Maddison in my squad coming next gws?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      It would revert it - but not really a FH week anymore

    2. Not again Shirley
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Yes it would revert back the following week to your original team if play FH.

    3. Felix Navidad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Thank you very much!

    4. DALEDOBACK
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      It would revert

  19. ElliotJHP
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Is this a joke?

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

      Nope

    3. LeytonOrient
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Pretty solid tbh. 2FT get rid of son and maybe Dennis in. Wouldn’t change much else

  25. Junglist95
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Here's a dilemma...

      Start King (obviously not bringing in Dennis now for a hit)..

      Or

      Start Gallagher.

      Knowing the risks associated with Watford Burnley, that would make Gallagher a better option surely, even if King has Newcastle?

      Deadline is way before potential cancellation.

      Help please.

      1. Junglist95
          7 months, 6 days ago

          King goes from double to just/still Newcastle I mean.

      2. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Brought in Maddison and Dennis for a -4 late last night to avoid apparent Maddison price rise. I am screwed now. Honestly cannot believe this...!!!!

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

          they're still both good options, even if they don't get a double

        2. Mortal.Swinbat
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Literally only yourself to blame

      3. Ninja Škrtel
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        who to captain? this is tricky af!

        a. Kane
        b. CR7
        c. Dennis

        FH and got all three

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

          a

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

        Start Coufal(LEE) or Lowton(WAT)?

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

          Coufal

        2. WHUFCSmith23
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Wouldn't ever start a Burnley defender in any game tbf

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

        Start Coufal(LEE) or Lowton(WAT)?

        1. Junglist95
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Serious?

            Coufal 1000%

        2. WHUFCSmith23
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 6 days ago

          Thinking:

          Son to Bruno (for captain this week and Salah place holder)
          Ronaldo to Watkins (double game weeks coming up and Villa on the up).

          That would be a minus 4. Means I have moved money from the front to mid for Salah and my minus 4 is going on a captain with a double game week.

          Does that sound like sound logic or am I missing something here? Help me out boys, my brain is melting.
