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.

    Would you still bring in Tottenham players if we get no more news before the deadline?

      No. My Son to Moura switch is off.

        Certainly not for a hit now, no. If it was a FT and part of a longer term plan, see no problem with it

      Son > Jota for a -4 it is then

          Who would you play if you didn't do it?

            Broja first on my bench

            1. Harvey_27
                4 days, 18 hours ago

                Broja wasn't mentioned in the presser but against Wolves, seems a likely 2 pointer. I'd make the transfer for a -4 then

          Team in quite poor health. -4 to this or FH? Dennis and King is for Laca and Broja:

          Sanchez
          TAA, Cancelo, Bavies (if dgw)
          Jota, Bowen, Gray, Bernardo
          Dennis, King, Antonio

          Ramsdale, Coufal, Livra, Salah

            Absolutely do not FH! so many cancellations and uncertainty, ti's a waste of a chip

          2. Harvey_27
              4 days, 19 hours ago

              -4 at most, defo don't FH. Watford may end up only with one game if Burnley cancel the other game so even your proposed move is now risky. I think your team is good enough to go

                4 days, 18 hours ago

                Yeah the uncertainty is annoying but Watford have Norwich next week so could still be worthwhile!

                1. Harvey_27
                    4 days, 18 hours ago

                    Understood, so it would be a calculated risk with that Noriwch game as mitigation against one of the DGW games being called off (and might also make for that bit more of an exciting DGW for you). I'd do it, but whether you go Dennis or King is a toss of the coin. I brought in King

                  Spurs game vs Arsenal could be off but may well not know before deadline, plus Regu seems to be carrying injury. Personally Brighton look the best bet now to me if it needs to be a DGW player, so Lamptey or Cucurella say I

                Anyone else getting Dennis despite of that Burnley game potential uncertainty?

                    FT yes, -4 maybe, maybe not, on the fence

                  a.Salah + james to bruno + Cucurella or another dgw defender for -4
                  b. keep salah and do esr + james to mount + cucurella for -4

                  thoughts on this FH?

                  taa, cucurella (dgw), alonso (dgw)

                  ronaldo (dgw), dennis (dgw), kane (dgw, C)

                  8 dgw players in total.

                    A lot depends on Ronaldo fitness and if Spurs v Arsenal will go ahead or not?

                      And Watford v Burnley game under threat too. Don’t think FH is worth it now.

                        FH was a no go for me way before last postponement. Right after it was announced it was iffy, and later on it became even more iffier.

                    Too many uncertainties for a lot of these players so I wouldn’t

                      They have 1 midfielder in Lokonga.

                        4 days, 18 hours ago

                        For relative safety of starts and the closest to being sure both DGW games are actually played, DDG, CR7, Lamptey/Cucurella, Mount, Rudi probably, in no particular order

                          I wanted CR7 then he's flagged! Really annoying picking players.

                        We knew the games could be postponed. So those who rushed with transfers can only blame themselves. All we ask is full clarity on all postponements before the deadline. So please let us know whether Arsenal game is postponed and second Burnley game.

                          Haha! People who made earlier transfers also knew that we might not get full clarity before the deadline. You can't just beg on a fantasy forum that your way is made to be the smart way.

                          Spare a thought for people who are genuinely busy around the deadline and need to make transfers early or risk not making any at all?

                          such a boring take. when you wait to make transfers you risk being locked out. Both are a risk and you're just patting yourself on the back that you took the correct risk this time. So did I but I'm not sanctimonious about it thinking it makes me an FPL genius

                          Let's be honest, this chaos is exciting isn't it.

                          Lots of reasons not to bring in double game week players. No obvious captain choice.

                            love it personally. people spent the first 15 weeks whinging Salah was a permacap and everything was template, now it's whinging because there aren't any clear choices. Everyone is in the same boat!

                            Exciting wouldn't be the word id use to describe it......

                              Might go back to captaining DDG. Worked with Cech on a DGW a few years ago. Exciting in it's own way imo 😀

                              Finally something happening! Would rather have normal situation with the fixtures, but it's gonna test your decision making under pressure. A lot to lose now, but I a lot to gain!

                              Made Son -> Maddi last night (could have done Son -> Bruno had I known).
                              On San(C)hez at the moment 😀 😀

                              Still I love this 😀

                              Nothing - take in a good walk and get some fresh air while further fixture and injury carnage unfold

                            best combo for next gw:

                            A) Maddison & Gray
                            B) Bruno & Trossard (-8)

                              On A and not even vaguely tempted by B.

                            Is Son + ESR -> Mount + Moura worth a -4?

                            Team would be

                            Dennis or Bowen captain?

                            Son to Bruno..? Looking at a move with gw23 in mind, to warm the seat for Salah return

                              You're the dude on the other side of the planet right? If you want peace of mind and despite not being ideal because of the blanks next, just do Son to Mount.

                                  Looking like I'll be doing Son to Mount, is Bilva to KDB worth a hit?

                                  Sissoko or Keane first sub?

                                  Which is better for -4?

                                  A) Antonio -> Kane
                                  B) Foden -> Bruno
