The Scout looks at clubs that can be paired together effectively to help Fantasy Premier League managers make a strong start in 2020/21.
Burnley and Leicester City
They each produced eight shutouts in their own stadium, totals bettered only by the 10 of Manchester City.
By selecting a player from each side in their initial squad, and benching the one for the away match throughout the campaign, a Fantasy manager is guaranteed a home fixture in every Gameweek.
The exception in Burnley and Leicester’s case is Gameweek 1, as the Clarets face a blank after their home meeting with Manchester United was postponed.
But the Foxes do have a favourable away trip on the opening weekend, travelling to promoted West Bromwich Albion.
How to rotate in GWs 2-12
Over Gameweeks 2-12, managers would have a home match against just two of last season’s top six sides.
But Leicester can again provide a strong option for that latter match as they visit Leeds United in Gameweek 7.
Although goalkeepers Nick Pope (£5.5m) and Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) are too pricey to be part of a rotation pairing, there are more budget-friendly options in both defences that can appeal to managers.
Look to full-backs
For Burnley, Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) looks a secure pick at left-back. He started every match from Gameweeks 18-36 after recovering from injury last season.
Despite making just 24 appearances, his total of 20 successful crosses ranked third for the Clarets.
Matthew Lowton (£4.5m) is another cut-price alternative in the right-back role.
Justin made an impression at both ends of the pitch when selected at King Power Stadium in 2019/20.
He produced one assist and four clean sheets in his five home starts.
