Fixtures

Double Gameweek 34 Confirmed

Earlier this morning, the Premier League kindly helped to relieve the monotony brought on by another international break by confirming the rescheduling of a number of fixtures that were previously postponed due to FA Cup ties.

The following matches have now been moved into Gameweek 34:

Chelsea v Southampton
Arsenal v Leicester
Crystal Palace v Spurs
Middlesbrough v Sunderland
Manchester City v Manchester United

As a result, we now have three teams set to play twice in Gameweek 34 – Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and Manchester United.

Palace hardly have the most appealing pair of fixtures – Big Sam’s will now travel to Liverpool before hosting Spurs.

Middlesbrough face two vital relegation clashes, with a trip to Bournemouth preceding their home encounter with Sunderland.

Man United, meanwhile, will hit the road twice – making their way to Burnley before rolling up to neighbours City on Thursday April 27 in the final match of Gameweek 34.

As a result of this rescheduling, those holding West Bromwich Albion players should be aware that the Baggies are the only team that will face a blank in Gameweek 34.

The Premier League have also revealed that the remaining postponed fixtures will be confirmed “on or around Friday, April 7”, which is just prior to the weekend of Gameweek 32.

At present, there are six matches yet to be afforded a new date:

Arsenal v Sunderland
Chelsea v Watford
Leicester v Spurs
Man City v West Brom
Southampton v Arsenal
Southampton v Man United

We’ll go into more detail on the knock-on effect of today’s news in future “Scouting the Doubles” fixtures nearer the time but, for now, this is just a heads-up.

      Time to get goal machine Gayle in!

      Ohh, right...

          Who? The name sounds familiar, but I'd actually have to google him 🙂 And then why bother.

        Who are the players to get for this double coming up then?

        Ibra is the obvious one

        Not hot on Palaces fixtures and Boro's attacking potential

        1. LakhaneeFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Might get Mata in as well, fairly consistent with his returns

        2. boNyANdclYne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 7 days ago

          For Middlesborough, Valdes, Negredo or Ramirez?

          Valencia or De Gea for united. I already have Jones, so may as well hang onto him.

          Ibra, Valencia/DDG/both, Valdes/Boro defender are the ones I would consider. As you said, don't fancy Palace or Boro attack. United mids too prone to rotation for my liking.

        4. Gimli son of Gloin
            2 months, 7 days ago

            I'll be going with Valencia, Ibra and a Boro defender.
            If it doesn't require much tinkering and the mood strikes me I might also go for one of Mata/Pogba/Mkhi

            Are Man U's fixtures actually that good for fantasy points?

            Only 3 sides have scored more than 1 goal against Burnley at home (MCY, CRY & BOU) and the CRY/BOU games were 3-2 wins to Burnley as they attacked more to win. Expect Burnley to be organised and disciplined - MCY/CHE/ARS/LIV combined only scored 4 goals.

            And then an away Manchester Derby.....

            Valencia, DDG

            Captain?
            Vardy (STK) v Hazard (CRY)

            1. Miguel Sanchez
                2 months, 7 days ago

                Hazard

              • Super Saints

                  Hazard

                  Gun to your head, which player scores the most points between now and the remaining game weeks?

                  Sanchez?

                  1. LakhaneeFC
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    2 months, 7 days ago

                    Lukaku or Alli I think

                    Not sure how many games Sanchez is going to play to be honest

                    1. Demí
                        2 months, 7 days ago

                        Lukaku really? I know he's in sublime form at the moment, but he has less games and more difficult fixtures to come

                        1. LakhaneeFC
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          2 months, 7 days ago

                          Agreed, but I think with Sanchez being injured and his status at the club at the moment I would still pick Kaku over him

                          Costa would be the only one who might make the list.

                    2. Ha.

                        Kane

                          Has to be. Alli or Eriksen next closest imo.

                        • Kevin Malone
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          2 months, 7 days ago

                          Sanchez if he plays all games

                        • Conor McGregor
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          2 months, 7 days ago

                          I'd say Sanchez or Ibra

                              No one will score any points between now and the remaining games weeks.

                              Anyone trippling up on United? Something like DDG, Valencia and Ibra?

                              1. Kevin Malone
                                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                2 months, 7 days ago

                                Jones, Valencia, Ibra for me I think.

                              2. LakhaneeFC

                                Thinking about doubling up at the moment. Ibra Valencia

                                Might go for Mata if there's some certainty about him starting. Would love to have Mkhi, but very inconsistent in starts

                                Valencia & Ibra are pencilled in. Probably get DDG to go with them.

                                Yeah, no need to WC that anytime soon. Baines -> Valencia and have a plan to get Ibra in for DGW34.

                                  Would drump Brunt to find a Spurs defender maybe

                                  The return of Jesus could be significant in all this planning. Do we tihnk he ousts Aguero again?

                                      Aguero becomes Ibra for me in gw31, I can't see him holding off a healthy GJ.

                                        WB have horrible fixtures, but I just can't get myself to get rid of McAuley. That guy has been superlative in terms of attacking returns this season

                                        For my team, might ship Fonte off for Valencia instead

                                        Film at eleven. Both probably get crocked. Doesn't matter if they report for duty. Matters if they return from duty in one piece

                                          kinda jinx with kane this season.. got him for 2 plum home games and he blanked both.. finally got points during the game he missed the pk but already planned to ship him out (cant remember who).. then he hits form.. getting him in with a second chance and he got injured.. sigh...

                                          replacements for him?

                                          Vardy worth at least 2 home game punt?
                                          Costa?
                                          any other? cant afford Kun

                                          Thanks!

                                              Vardy is back on track. Good fixtures next 2 gws. Then swap for Ibras DGW.

                                                      Stephens for Southampton started and played 90 mins of last few Saints games? Who is he in for and can we see him keeping his place in time for the doubles??

                                                          Pretty sure he is nailed till Van Dijk is back. He got injured same time as Fonte sold so Yoshida and Stephens started getting a game. For 0.3m more Yoshida is less at risk imo

                                                        Would be 5th mid alongside Alli / Sanchez / Ayew / Siggy

                                                        Tadic seems to expensive - Redmond and JWP?

                                                          So is Southampton v Arsenal going to be GW35/36 and the remaining games scheduled for GW37?

                                                          Is there any other possibility?

                                                            Manchester United have Burnley away and city away for the double gameweek, then Arsenal and Spurs away in the next 3.

                                                            Far from ideal fixtures. Palace fixtures are hideous at best. Middlesborough don't really score. Not an ideal double gameweek lol.

                                                            I will still go for Ibra I think but it's not a straightforward decision.

                                                              Yup, you're right, nothing straightforward right now

                                                              Any chance of a triple gameweek for arsenal or Southampton? Considering they have 2 fixtures still to be rescheduled
