Frisking the Fixtures

  1. After taking a look at those clubs with kind upcoming schedules yesterday evening, we turn our attentions to those with some tough fixtures to follow. Trouble could be brewing for the Tyne-Wear duo, whilst the Saints’ recent rise to prominence is set to be put to the test.

  2. There’s reason for optimism at the Liberty Stadium as we assess the strength of schedule over the next four to six Gameweeks this evening. The fixture list also smiles kindly on Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal, whilst Sam Allardyce will be confident of bouncing back from Saturday’s loss at Goodison.

  3. After casting an eye over those teams with some kind schedules to follow last Friday afternoon, we turn our attentions to those with less fortunate fixtures. Sunderland and Hull will do well to steer clear of the drop zone, whilst Stoke face a tough task to retain their current mid-table comforts.

  4. Three of the top four are handed the platform to cement their lofty positions as we cast an eye over the upcoming schedules across the next four-to-six Gameweeks. League leaders Chelsea and defending champions City have very reason for optimism, as do Big Sam’s Hammers, whilst Harry Redknapp’s QPR will be looking to take advantage […]

  5. Having run the rule over the sides set to ease their way into December, it’s now time to check on the teams granted a more treacherous path. Monday night’s participants provide the headline acts, while a cloud is hovering ominously over the Potteries. Elsewhere, we offer early warnings on some prime Fantasy assets on show […]

  6. We turn our attentions to the upcoming schedule now and assess those sides with strong fixtures to follow over the next four-to-six Gameweeks. Three of the current top five could well be set to maintain their lofty positions, whilst Everton’s prospects of climbing the table are boosted by a kind run of opponents.

  7. Having identified those teams with some kind schedules in the coming Gameweeks, it’s time to turn to the other end of the spectrum. We point the finger at those teams who will need to defy the fixture computer to prevail over the next month or so.
