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.

  1. It's gonna Ben Mee
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Time to get goal machine Gayle in!

    Ohh, right...

    1. Pep bites Kun
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  2. Ownership Tactician
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. TwiggsJameson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 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.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      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
      8 months, 6 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

    5. pjworsley
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 5 days ago

      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.....

    6. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Valencia, DDG

  3. random cat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Captain?
    Vardy (STK) v Hazard (CRY)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Hazard

    2. Super Saints
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Hazard

    3. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      vardy

  4. Demí
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    Sanchez?

    1. LakhaneeFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Lukaku or Alli I think

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

      1. Demí
        8 months, 6 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
          8 months, 6 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.
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Kane

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Costa

    4. tm245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Has to be. Alli or Eriksen next closest imo.

    5. Kevin Malone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Sanchez if he plays all games

    6. Ownership Tactician
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I'd say Sanchez or Ibra

    7. Kings of Lyon ★
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Sanchez aye

    8. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Gun-Do-Gun

    9. kris_jerøme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Alexis. Possibly Dele. maybe even Haz

      1. NoAccounting4Taste
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Vardy

    10. Rkid
      8 months, 5 days ago

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

    11. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Lukaku

  5. CloudSky
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Kevin Malone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Jones, Valencia, Ibra for me I think.

    2. LakhaneeFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      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

    3. kris_jerøme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    4. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      sure tons will. I might. Valencia Ibra DDG

  6. Carlton P
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Bottomed
    This is a late WC surely?
    2nd in 4 MLs, 50 points behind, we are a mile clear
    Foster / Pickford
    Alonso / Coleman / Baines / brunt / mawson
    Sanchez / mane / Alli / erik / siggy
    Lukaku / Llorente / barnes

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      save no need yet

  7. The Overthinker - Emre Cana…
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Suggestions for next 3 game weeks. Have 2FT.
    Would love to have players having strong/more returns over that time

    Heaton (jaku)
    alonso/Coleman/brunt (Maguire, pieters)
    Firmino/mane/Alli/siggy(TarroLl)
    Costa/Lukaku /llorente

    1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Can't really make comment without knowing how much money you have in bank.

      Would drump Brunt to find a Spurs defender maybe

  8. Ownership Tactician
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

    When is ibra back?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      GW31

    2. Demí
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Everton

  9. tm245

    8 months, 6 days ago

    Was the Manchester derby scheduled for Thursday as a cash grab? Quick turnaround from 34 to 35.

    1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Never surprise to grab money

  10. Kings of Lyon ★
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. LakhaneeFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I thought he was out for the season? Has that changed?

      1. Kings of Lyon ★
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Expected back some time next month.

        1. LakhaneeFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Cheers, wasn't aware!

          Yup, guess that's the end of Aguero playing time once he gets back

      2. Demí
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Back in mid/end April

        1. LakhaneeFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Hmm, this front three dilemma is a pain. Especially with the injuries/suspensions

    2. tm245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    3. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Isn't he due back on April 16?

  11. Yeah Zeus!
    8 months, 6 days ago

    McAuley to Valencia looks good then.

    1. LakhaneeFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      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

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Wish I done it GW just past.....

    3. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Yup. Did similar

    1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

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

    8 months, 6 days ago

    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...

    Vardy worth at least 2 home game punt?

    Which team would you rather have for GW34? (with one/two transfer(s) per GW from now on)

    Team A (no hits, chips still intact): DDG / Valencia-Walker-Baines / [Mané]-Siggy-King-[Antonio]-[Sanchez] / Lukaku-Ibra

    Team B (-4, chips still intact): DDG / Valencia-Walker-Baines / [Coutinho]-Siggy-King-[Alli]-[Eriksen] / Lukaku-Ibra

    Current team: Foster / Coleman-Walker-Baines / Coutinho-Siggy-King-Antonio-Sanchez / Lukaku-Costa

    Cheers.

    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??

    Cheers

    1. Bagheri Arce
      8 months, 6 days ago

      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

      1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Yoshida to the wall

  19. Kun Tozser
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Best Southampton mid to get in?

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

    Tadic seems to expensive - Redmond and JWP?

    1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Redmond as 4th
      JWP for 5th

  20. I Have No Idea What I'…
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    Is there any other possibility?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 5 days ago

      That is what is expected and very little other option

  21. Troopon

    8 months, 5 days ago

    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.

    1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Yup, you're right, nothing straightforward right now

  22. Dalvipool
    8 months, 5 days ago

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

    1. Fashanu Zealand Desertbug
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      YEs there is some, but slim. Gotta wait
