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.

    Well, at this stage I'm just going to sit tight with my team and just hope Son to Maddison wasn't a waste especially since he still actually has a game. Seems a lot are having to resort to taking hits so that alone might give me a boost for the week, just wish I had more cover than only Allan on the bench if the Arsenal game drops. Good luck all!

    1. antis0cial
      • 6 Years

      You weren't the only one lured into the early transfer in the hopes of gaining 0.2. We should know better! Still, Maddison in form so not the worst transfer.

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

      Maddy is solid anyway mate.

    3. Boly Would
      • 6 Years

      Playing well and still has a fixture (for now), could be worse.

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

      Maddy is in form and has a lot of extra games in back pocket 🙂

    With the latest postponement, I'm even more inclined to save my transfer. Anything worth doing?

    DE GEA(v)
    REGUILON, DALOT, Trent
    MOURA, Jota, Bowen, Gray
    KING(c), Dominic, Antonio

    SANCHEZ / TELLES, Cancelo, SON**

    4.0 ITB

    1. Your Man With The Hair
      • 11 Years

      Any reason why you're keeping Son?

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

        Not enough good options I want this week. 2FTs could be more valuable in a future week. If he's back on schedule, then I don't spend 4-8 points getting him out and in. I would be tempted by Bruno this week if I didn't need to sell a United player, and actually, my United defence is almost a blessing this week, given the postponements, since they will both likely get minutes.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Will Dalot play both games? You not tempted to play Cancelo instead?

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

        Not really tempted. I'd say they're about even if Dalot starts one game.

      D. Just because we have zero idea what will happen

      You can't.

  6. Junks

    7 months, 6 days ago

    *REPOST* Am i mad to consider just holding and rolling the FT with this lot....?

    1FT 1.4ITB
    Ramsdale
    TAA Alonso Cancelo Nouri
    Saka Foden Bowen Moura
    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?

    1. antis0cial
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      If it's for free I'd do Pukki to Dennis. Saka is a doubt, Foden might not play

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

      I think Pukki to Dennis is a good move anyway. Bench Nouri or Saka

    3. Junks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Thanks both... Pukki to Dennis (free) feels right

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

    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?

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B Bruno

    Let’s try to be nice to each other. We all know it’s best to leave transfers until the latest possible moment but time zones / work / other life commitments mean some people made an earlier move than is ideal. They already feel bad about the moves which haven’t worked out so don’t berate them even more!

    Don’t mind me. Back to the panic!

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Well said

    2. FPL-Albion
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Exactly! Be nice people

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

      Here’s a little song I wrote…

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

      Nice sentiment.

      In my case, I only have myself to blame though. I'm not going anywhere and had plenty of time today to plan. Just wanted to save the 0.2m and with Rodgers' presser looking positive thought I could get away with it. I haven't been burned yet this season but certainly a mistake in hindsight.

      Maybe it takes getting burned to give you some new perspective. I do know that early transfers have given me around 1m more in team value so I was bound to be unstuck at some point by taking the risk.

      1. antis0cial
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        A lot of us made the same move for the same reasons. I still don't think it's a bad move though, other than maybe Bruno I'm not sure who else I would have moved Son to.

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

        I’ve done the same. Even when you know the risk you’re taking, sometimes it’s just too tempting to try and steal that march on your rivals, however small it might seem.

        Even when you’ve only got yourself to blame, I still think people should ease off when it comes to having a go on here. The vast majority are good-natured but there are some unpleasant told-you-so types.

        Let’s hope we can both get ourselves out of this sticky situation. And at least one game is better than none!

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

      Said something similar recently and people seemed not to agree in general, which I thought was a shame

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

        Ha, well at least we’re bringing some good-natured discussion to proceedings!

    6. boc610
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      agree whole heartedly with this BUT would also suggest that a price rise hysteria on here also makes people think they need to act early. I dont get it. mads was 6.8 and would go to 6.9...who cares?

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

        This is true. In the past month or two I’ve written off price rises… and still it’s tempting sometimes!

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

      I'm enjoying the pleasant and friendly atmosphere on this page, wish this place could be more like this most of the time!

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

        Hear hear. In the main, it’s a great community to be a part of. But sometimes (particularly during and just after matches) it can get quite spiteful, which is a shame.

    8. Mario Balofail
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah. There is no shame in failing....ask Deloufail and me about it 😉

  9. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    What do people think of Bruno as an option / punt / Salah placeholder?

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

      Considering that very thing myself!

    2. Stranger Mings
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Either him or mount

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

      Think that's where I'm heading especially if Ronaldo out

      Ronaldo and son to Bruno and maybe Watkins- 4

    4. FPL-Albion
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Would love to, but annoyingly I have 3 Utd, Dalot DDG Ronaldo - no idea how that happened!

    5. Your Man With The Hair
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      I was leaning towards this too until I realised he's had one attacking return in the past 10 GWs...

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

      If ronaldo is out for at least one game and Watford potentially only 1 game, then I’m doing it. And will probably captain

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

      I think there’s 0 evidence that he’s a decent pick nowadays

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

      Not for me. He's been poor.

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

    Maupay or Dennis??

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

      Dennis, easy pick

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

        Why if he only has one game?

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

          Even with one game, I reckon Dennis the better pick

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

          You didn't stipulate that in the question. He has two games right now, and a risk of losing one.

  11. DIMITRIS
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    Would you FH if you had this team-
    Ederson (Gunn)
    Alonso / Rudiger / Keane (Livra, Williams)
    Maddison / Jota / Bowen / Bernardo (Soucek)
    DCL / Antonio / Ronaldo

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

      No, why would you FH when so many games are in doubt?

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Cheers. That are also my thoughts, but wanted to ask if someone could give me an alternative angle to look at the situation.

    2. KunDogan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      100% No

    3. Boberella

      Def not FH now.

      I have very similar team and decided to not use FH. Just two transfers Son to Moura/ Mount and Livra to BRI or CHE defender

      1. Jdpz

    Watkins, Martinelli > Dennis, 8.3$ -4?

  15. Gunnerssss

    Capt bruno or dennis?

    1. antis0cial
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Bruno, more likely to have two games at this point

    2. WVA

      D

  16. Wolfman180

    Son, Johnson, Davis to Moura, DCL, Cucurella for a -8?

  17. Atimis

    Son to Maddison last night went well hahaha my only early transfer done in weeks phiiii

    1. Drogo
      • 10 Years

      I did Salah to Son last week, beat that

  18. murf5646
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 6 days ago

    what about if you do have a free hit activated, what would your double game week team be now with postponed match?

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

      Brighton, Chelsea and ManU

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

      I had it all figured out with Son, Maddison & co. and it all fell through.

      My latest draft is:

      De Gea
      van Dijk, Alonso, Cucurella
      Bruno, Mount, Havertz, Trossard
      Ronaldo, Kane, Dennis

      Gunnarson, Brownhill, Tsimikas, Hoever (bench s abysmal).

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

    I did not want Bruno in my team, but is there anything else for me now beside Salah-Bruno?

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

    Broja, Cash, **Salah**

    1. AARON-1
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Bruno hasn't been good, we all know that, but would you seriously be surprised if he scored and assisted over a double game week - especially versus Brentford? He'll be on penalties if Ronaldo injury is genuine, too. I think he is a decent shout now. Mount has a double but City and Brighton are against tight defences. I'm getting Bruno because it leaves my with the precise funds to swap back to Salah in one move.

    2. Stranger Mings
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Play foster or take -4 to do mendy to Sanchez or DDG?

      1. WVA

      If you've made early transfers or pressed Free Hit, you need to look at yourself. We all have the same 24 hours in a day and you chose not to be patient. I've worked my ar*e off to get to my rubbish overall rank. It just depends to what lengths you want to go to get where you want to be by GW38. And I’ll go to any lengths. Such as bringing in Neil Maupay.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 6 days ago

        Rubbish transfer.

      2. DeuloRad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Ew gross sentiment. Take a look at yourself mate

            My reactions are too good

            I would catch it

    4. Drogo
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 6 days ago

      Do we think we will get the information if Arsenal - Spurs will be postponed before the deadline today? Contemplating between Ronaldo and Kane, but if Ronaldo is playing twice (if he is not injured) that makes it easy.

      1. fplgaruda

        Possibly not with it being a Sunday match.

      Any rumours relating to Chelsea’s matches gents?

      If they have a dgw I might cap Mount just for fun

        Thinking to get Mount instead of Doucure as well. Don't wanna sell player against Norwich, but this is Doucoure though

        What's happened to Ronaldo?

        1. Bavarian

          7 months, 6 days ago

          injured in training

            Just for a laugh when I was miles ahead in a mini league, I captained a double game week goalie. It was Ederson on the back of 5 consecutive clean sheets. Conceded early in both games. I can't bring myself to captain De Gea.

        I think i will go Son to Bruno and cpt him especially if Ronaldo is out may get a penalty..

        1. EL tridente

          Same. And Easy switch to Salah when he is back

          1. Netters2018
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 6 days ago

            Exactly..

            1. AARON-1
                7 months, 6 days ago

                Yeah I'm doing Ramsdale ---> De Gea and Salah ---> Bruno . Leaves me Bruno's value plus money in the bank to transfer Salah back for precisely 12.8 in one move. That's my position at the moment.

          I'm starting to think FH is becoming more attractive now

          You could get a good score with 3 Chelsea, 2 United, 2 Brighton, Dennis, Jota, TAA, Bowen

            most ppl have at least one chelsea, one united, dennis/king, jota, taa, bowen/antonio
            not much upside but depends what your expectations are from FH chip
