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.

      One minute of silence to maddison new owner for prioritizing gaining money over further information.

      Well, it turned up his price has'nt rise either. Lol

        Ok mate, we get it

        What about us who got him 3 GWs ago…

        It’s gone well

        1. fplgaruda

          "New owner"

            "what about"

            1. fplgaruda

              4 days, 20 hours ago

              Well played

      3. Atimis

        You feel better now?

        1. fplgaruda
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Nah its just make me laugh, as we know this game is about patience.

          1. zeslinguer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 20 hours ago

            The game is absolutely not about patience it's about calculated risk. Those moving early may have been locked out of the Maddison move if they didn't move early. The risk backfired for them this time, but it wasn't a stupid move. Players who sit on their hands take different risks i.e. not building value and being locked out of moves. You jsut don't see the bigger picture

        Still a good player to own so no need to be downhearted about it at all.

      5. Dammit_182

          In fairness the sites were showing son drop madders rise last night so I get you. Spurs at home is ok fixture mind.

          We have to prioritise in life. Sometimes it goes in our favour; sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it leads us to reasess our goals and priorities. New questions arise like, 'What do I really want?', or 'Why am I posting this aggro shite on a shite fantasy site?'

        • Boberella
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 20 hours ago

          Well, at this stage Maddy will score more points than Son this week

      6. Tcheco
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 20 hours ago

        Trossard or Mount?

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 20 hours ago

          Mount

        2. Harvey_27
            4 days, 20 hours ago

            probably Mount, but maybe worth looking at your mini league opponents and see what they've got via FPL Live or FPL Gameweek and then deciding whether you want a sword or a shield

        3. Sterling Malory
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 20 hours ago

          Would you do this for -8?

          Keane, Salah, Son >> Lamptey, Bruno, KDB

          Leaves this:
          DDG
          TAA Cancelo Dias Lamptey
          Jota Bruno KDB Bowen
          Watkins Antonio

          Foster Edouard Livra Brownhill

          1. Big_Andy_GAWA
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 20 hours ago

            KDB could be gold this next 3 or 4. If it's your gut feeling, do it!

        4. Tinmen
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 20 hours ago

          Folks. What about Greenwood as an option?

          1. The Reptile
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 20 hours ago

            He's looked terrible the last few games as has Rashford - I wouldn't

            1. Tinmen
              • 8 Years
              4 days, 20 hours ago

              No worse that Bruno has looked all season tho and a lot going Bruno all of a sudden

              1. Junglist95
                  4 days, 20 hours ago

                  Might thrive now and on pens too if Ronaldo out

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  4 days, 20 hours ago

                  you're not wrong, no Manu players look any good really - its all becoming a bit (more) of a lottery with all these postponements - is that on FH or transfer/hits?

                  1. Tinmen
                    • 8 Years
                    4 days, 20 hours ago

                    I’m thinking Son and Antonio to Greenwood and Kane(C) for -4

                    1. The Reptile
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 10 Years
                      4 days, 20 hours ago

                      I have Son & Ant, I was going to FH but don't think I will now - what if you get Kane in and Ars game is postponed? WH could do well V Leeds - maybe just get rid of Son

          2. Big_Andy_GAWA
            • 10 Years
            4 days, 20 hours ago

            I'm captaining De Gea now. At least we know (think!) he'll play two games...

            1. El Presidente
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              4 days, 20 hours ago

              Good point!

            2. WHITE HORSES
                4 days, 20 hours ago

                I am between De Gea and Rudiger for C two.
                Also have Dennis but now when Burnley - Watford game is in danger I am moving C from Dennis to De Gea or Rudiger.

            3. Shark Team
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 20 hours ago

              Would you do Antonio to Dennis after the Bur postponement news which put into danger Watford's second fixture?

              Salah to Bruno or KDB?

              1. TimoTime
                • 2 Years
                4 days, 20 hours ago

                Bruno for the double, easy swap in 23 to KDB for his fixture run

                1. Saint Tim

                im tempted to keep salah now as only 2 gw to miss

                Pondering over this myself.

                  pondering keeping salah or swaping with kdb/bruno?

            5. jimmywales1

              4 days, 20 hours ago

              What's the latest on Ronaldo? Got him in with a FH, but can't decide on whether it's risking to captain over Kane.

              1. TimoTime
                • 2 Years
                4 days, 20 hours ago

                Seems a doubt for the Villa game after picking up a fresh injury in training

                4 days, 20 hours ago

                The last month has basically been a stream of "team looks great, might roll a transfer here" gradually descending into " I can 11 with a -8 if Tino is fit"

            7. FPL ElasticO

              I have some concerns with my team... With all the postponement happening and more to follow this GW? Any advice what to do with this team? Will you FH or take hits?

              Ramsdale / Foster
              TAA / Cancelo / Dawson / Livramento* / Duffy*

                  Why Maddison? Now LEI has a single game this week....

                  4 days, 20 hours ago

                  Jota or Mount

                Really isn’t the worst for new madddison owners.

                Brighton assets have blanks. Spurs could have 2nd game off too. Man United stink. Chelsea have tough games. Watford could have 2nd game off

                Not as if there’s a load of other FPL teams massively better placed now because of the news. Maddison also has 4 games that need rescheduled

                1. Gooner97
                  • 8 Years
                  4 days, 20 hours ago

                  Did Son --> Maddi this night, in order to avoid a non existent price rise... but if the fixture vs BUR would have been already postponed I could have gone Moura or even Mount. Or never transferred Son out honestly.

                  Maddison was only good for the DGW as far as I'm concerned.

                    I have this feeling too, kinda of a wasted trasnfer 🙁

                  Decent fixture in GW23 as well

                • 4 Years
                4 days, 20 hours ago

                Play Dalot ( AVL, BRE )
                Or Cancelo ( CHE )

                1. Gooner97
                  • 8 Years
                  4 days, 20 hours ago

                  How can you prefer a piece of wood instead of one of the best players in the league, if not in the world, right now?

                    4 days, 20 hours ago

                    2 games v 1 game presumably? In theory as never know with Dalot playing 2 games ...

                    Dalot is not that good:)

                  I'm going for Dalot. I'm even playing Telles ahead of Cancelo. YOLO!

                Would you still buy Dennis on free hit now Burnley could be off?

                Thanks.

                  One of the few hot and delivering strikers in the game, so yes.

                  Rudi. Alonso.

                  If you mean Chelsea

                  I will not transfer Chelsea defenders.... tough fixtures & upcoming blanks

                  Got Alonso. Can be from any DGW team

                  Think I'll go Alonso. Blanks incoming but I think he'll finally haul this dgw.

                Ronaldo Bernardo > Dennis KDB, madness right? For -4 btw.

                  Doubt it straight away but seems odd that Alonso was on the bench vs Spurs and didnt play at all in the FA Cup game

                  NO chance. Barely played for Flamenco. Said to be going out on further loan in Chelsea chat rooms. If he did play would be in FA Cup or few minutes as bench filler, but seems unlikely.

                I still have Foden and Bilva. Currently playing both. Would you bench one of them and play Dawson (LEE) instead?

                Which one would you opt for in my position guys?

                A) Son and Antonio to Greenwood and Kane(C) -4

                B) Son to Bruno (C)

                DDG
                Trent Cancelo Coufal

                  Was looking at the same transfers tbh, I am chasing so thinking of going Kane & Greenwood but the NLD game potentially being off worries me.

                  what does the game getting called off have to do with it?
