Fixtures

Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures?

Our regular “frisk” of the Premier League fixture list from a Fantasy perspective returns for the first time in 2019.

In this feature, we assess the top-flight clubs with the strongest and weakest runs of league matches over the coming weeks and offer our thoughts on the stand-out Fantasy assets from each of the sides discussed.

Although our primary focus will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead, we will scrutinise the long-term fixtures beyond that point where relevant.

The Strong

Tottenham Hotspur

Next six: MUN, ful, WAT, NEW, LEI, bur

Possible turning point: che (Gameweek 28)

Spurs are just over halfway through their excellent sequence of fixtures that began in Gameweek 15.

A resurgent Manchester United might prove to be stiff opposition this Sunday but the Red Devils have still only kept three clean sheets all season (the shut-out against Newcastle United was their first under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer) and remain less than convincing at the back.

The underlying defensive stats are positive under Solskjaer: United rank second for fewest shots on target conceded and third for fewest big chances conceded since the Norwegian took charge.

The calibre of United’s last four opponents has to be taken into account though and the jury remains out on a backline that still includes Phil Jones (£5.1m), who has looked suspect alongside the more impressive Victor Lindelof (£4.8m).

Son Heung-min (£8.8m) exits for the Asian Cup after Gameweek 22 and it remains to be seen how his departure affects Spurs’ attacking output, but the Lilywhites unquestionably have some fine fixtures regardless – including a triple-header at home against Watford, Newcastle and Leicester City.

All six of their next opponents rank among the bottom 11 teams for shots in the box conceded over the last six Gameweeks, with Watford, Newcastle and Fulham in the bottom five for attempts on target allowed over that period.

Leicester’s record of seven big chances conceded over the last six Gameweeks is inferior to only three other teams, however.

No side has kept as many clean sheets as Spurs in the last six Gameweeks, a run that has included shut-outs against two teams they face in Gameweeks 26 and 27: Leicester and Burnley.

Those two sides plus Newcastle and Fulham rank in the bottom half of the table for shots on target in Gameweeks 16-21.

Leicester, Fulham and Newcastle also sit in the bottom four for fewest goals scored over this period.

Liverpool

Next six: bha, CRY, LEI, whu, BOU, mun

Possible turning point: mun (Gameweek 27)

One of only three teams who avoid a “big six” side in the next five Gameweeks (the others being Everton and Southampton: see below), Liverpool’s fixtures command attention for those Fantasy managers with or indeed without the likes of Mohamed Salah (£13.3m).

The likelihood of huge attacking returns in the next three Gameweeks might not be as probable as it seems, though: Brighton, Palace and Leicester rank in the top seven sides for fewest big chances conceded since the beginning of December (Gameweek 14 onwards).

Liverpool “only” scored a total of five goals against these three clubs in the respective reverse fixtures but the Reds are now a different proposition to the somewhat restrained team they were in the first month of the season, ranking top or joint-top for attempts on goal, shots in the box, big chances and indeed goals scored since the start of last month.

Jurgen Klopp’s team found the net on 11 occasions in the reverse fixtures of the matches in Gameweeks 25-27, though Manchester United will be a different prospect to the limp side that they faced in Jose Mourinho’s final game in charge.

Nevertheless, only Fulham have recorded fewer clean sheets than both the Red Devils and West Ham this season, while Bournemouth have shipped six more goals than any other team (22 in total) since the beginning of December – including three to Salah in Gameweek 16.

Liverpool’s remaining Premier League fixtures in January most definitely offer the possibility of further clean sheets (the Reds have 12 already in 2018/19), with Brighton, Palace and Leicester in the bottom six for biggest chances created over the last eight Gameweeks.

Everton

Next six: BOU, sou, hud, WOL, wat, MCI

Possible turning point: MCI (Gameweek 27)

Everton’s lack of clean sheets of late – not a single shut-out in the last eight Gameweeks – is the source of much discussion in the Fantasy community regarding the appeal of Lucas Digne (£5.2m) and the Toffees’ next five matches could very well represent the French left-back’s swansong in our Fantasy squads, with Everton’s fixtures stiffening from Gameweek 27 onwards.

Huddersfield’s struggles for goals this season (13 in 21 league fixtures) offers a glimmer of hope for a rare clean sheet in Gameweek 24, while Bournemouth, Southampton and Wolves sit in the bottom half of the table for shots in the box over the last eight Gameweeks.

Five of their next six opponents (the Terriers being the predictable exception) are all scoring at a rate better than a goal a game since the start of December, however, while Everton rank second-bottom for big chances conceded during that time.

For those who own Richarlison (£6.9m) and co, however, there are encouraging omens.

Everton have scored against all of their next six opponents already this season, including Manchester City at the Etihad.

Five of their next half-dozen opponents (including Pep Guardiola’s side, who like Everton are without a clean sheet since November) also rank in the bottom half of the table for big chances conceded in the last eight Gameweeks.

Southampton

Next six: lei, EVE, CRY, bur, CAR, ars

And then: FUL

Possible turning point: mun (Gameweek 29)

Southampton’s upturn in fixtures prompted our recent analysis of two of their budget midfielders, with the Saints having the “easiest” run of matches over the next seven Gameweeks according to our Season Ticker.

In Gameweeks 25-28, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops face four of the six teams that have allowed the most shots on target in 2018/19. Arsenal are one of those sides, who the Saints put three goals past in December.

Cardiff City beat the south coast side 1-0 in Hasenhuttl’s first match in charge and the two teams will meet again at St. Mary’s in Gameweek 26.

The visit of Everton in Gameweek 23 is another attractive proposition from an attacking perspective: the Toffees have recorded no clean sheets in the last eight Gameweeks and have allowed the second-highest number of big chances (23) over that period.

Leicester and Palace’s defences will surely prove less obliging, with those two clubs ranking in the top three for fewest shots on target conceded over the last eight Gameweeks. The Foxes and Roy Hodgson’s side have registered a combined seven clean sheets during that period.

For those interested in Jan Bednarek (£3.9m) and co, the Saints face four teams between now and the end of February who have scored at a rate of a goal per game or less over the last eight Gameweeks: Leicester, Burnley, Cardiff and Fulham.

Five of the Saints’ next seven opponents also rank in the bottom half of the table for shots on target from Gameweek 14 onwards.

Also Consider

Cardiff City (HUD, new, ars, BOU, sou, WAT) aren’t a particularly popular team from a Fantasy perspective, with not one of their outfield players being owned by more than 4% of FPL managers.

There is no denying that the Bluebirds’ fixtures are among the best in the division over the next six Gameweeks, however, with only a trip to Arsenal – who themselves are unconvincing at the back – to be concerned about in the medium term.

Indeed, the Bluebirds’ appealing matches continue well into March and it is not until Chelsea visit South Wales in Gameweek 32 that Neil Warnock’s side have to really worry about a daunting fixture again.

Cardiff have largely held their own against mid-table/relegation fodder this season and only three clubs outside the “big six” have kept more clean sheets than the Bluebirds (five) in 2018/19.

Neil Warnock’s troops have, in fact, only conceded 16 goals in 14 matches against sides currently ranked seventh or below.

Their next two opponents, Huddersfield and Newcastle, have scored the joint-fewest number of goals in the Premier League this season.

Due to the reversal of their fixture against Spurs back in September, Watford (cry, BUR, tot, bha, EVE, car) only enjoy two home matches in the next seven Gameweeks.

The Hornets rank second for “defence” over the next half-dozen matches, though, taking on four of the sides that lie in the bottom six for shots on target in 2018/19.

Those same four teams – Cardiff, Palace, Brighton and Burnley – sit in the bottom half of the table for goals scored this campaign.

The defences Watford face might be tougher nuts to crack, however, with five of their next six opponents (the exception being Everton) among the ten meanest backlines for big chances conceded in the last eight Gameweeks.

The Weak

Leicester City

Next six: SOU, wol, liv, MUN, tot, CRY

Possible turning point: CRY (Gameweek 27)

A Gameweek 22 encounter with Southampton is the calm before the storm for Claude Puel’s side, with trips to Wolves, Liverpool and Spurs sandwiching the visit of Manchester United before the Foxes’ fixtures turn for the better in Gameweek 27.

Leicester are a difficult team to fathom of late and recent evidence suggests those tricky-looking upcoming fixtures aren’t a formality, with the Foxes having defeated Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton over the last four Gameweeks.

This is the same team, of course, that lost at home to Cardiff and were then dumped out of the FA Cup by League Two club Newport County on Sunday.

Leicester’s defensive solidity – only Chelsea have conceded fewer shots on target in the last eight Gameweeks – will be tested by their matches in Gameweeks 24-26, with Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs having each scored the joint-highest number of goals (23) since the start of last month.

Gameweek 27 looks a great time to invest in Leicester assets, however, with the Foxes avoiding any of the “big six” in their subsequent nine fixtures.

Bournemouth

Next six: eve, WHU, CHE, car, liv, WOL

And then: ars, MCI

Possible turning point: hud (Gameweek 30)

While Bournemouth have taken some pummelings in December, many Fantasy managers retain a soft spot for the Cherries and their assets.

Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) and Callum Wilson (£6.7m) remain the best-value FPL players in their respective positions and many Fantasy bosses have stuck with their Bournemouth players through the winter months in spite of a tail-off in form and fixtures for Eddie Howe’s side.

Goals for both players in the 3-3 draw with Watford would have rekindled interest but there is little let-up in Bournemouth’s tough schedule, as the Cherries sit bottom of our Season Ticker for the next eight Gameweeks.

There won’t be much interest in Bournemouth’s defensive assets (the Cherries have conceded 22 goals since the start of December, six more than any other club) but visits to Everton and Cardiff at least offer the hope of an attacking return for Fraser and Wilson, with those two sides also sitting in the bottom three for goals conceded over the last eight Gameweeks.

West Ham, meanwhile, have recorded only three clean sheets all season and rank 17th for shots on target and big chances conceded in 2018/19.

Also Consider

Top of our Season Ticker for the second quarter of the season but bottom for the next four Gameweeks, Newcastle United (che, CAR, MCI, tot, wol, HUD) are the first in a trio of unfashionable clubs (from an FPL point of view, we hasten to add) whose limited appeal is further diminished by their upcoming schedule.

No side has scored fewer goals than the Magpies since the beginning of December and matches against Chelsea, Manchester City and Spurs in Gameweeks 22, 24 and 25 make for grim reading.

Only two sides have allowed fewer big chances than Wolves in the last eight Gameweeks, meanwhile, which doesn’t bode well for the Magpies’ prospects at Molineux either.

Home games against Cardiff and Huddersfield could make or break Newcastle’s season and the prospects of clean sheets all round in those two fixtures look strong: the Bluebirds and David Wagner’s side sit in the bottom three with the Tyneside outfit for shots on target from Gameweek 14 onwards.

The fact that back-up goalkeeper Ben Hamer (£4.0m) and the now-departed Collin Quaner (£4.3m) are Huddersfield Town‘s (car, MCI, EVE, che, ARS, new) two most popular FPL assets says all there is to know about the Terriers’ stock in the FPL community, so we won’t waste time discussing why they are ones to avoid. Suffice to say, Wagner’s troops have lost their last nine fixtures in all competitions.

As with Newcastle, the Terriers face two must-win games either side of a tetralogy of daunting fixtures and it is the away matches against Neil Warnock and Rafael Benitez’s sides that represent their best chance of any sort of Fantasy returns over the coming half-dozen Gameweeks.

It is perhaps unfair to lump Brighton and Hove Albion (LIV, mun, ful, WAT, BUR, che) in with the two aforementioned relegation-threatened clubs but like Newcastle, the Seagulls’ kind autumn schedule has given way to an altogether more testing succession of fixtures.

In their coming half-dozen league matches, Chris Hughton’s side face five of the seven clubs who have created the most big chances since the start of December (Fulham being the exception).

While FPL managers are unlikely to be punting on a member of Brighton’s backline during this period, the Seagulls could make life tricky for the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea between now and the end of February: from Gameweek 14 onwards, only Maurizio Sarri’s side have conceded fewer big chances than the Sussex club.

      Not this week.

    2. LeicesterNygaard

      I think you should go for it

    3. JonSnow

      could backfire, wolves do well against the top 6. If it is a permanent swap and on a free it may be worth the risk

  3. Devo-McDuff
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Considering WC from to this:

      Ether (Button or Guaita)
      TAA/Doherty/Digne (WB/Cedric)
      Salah/Sane/Richarl/Son (Brooks)
      Kane/Jimi/Arnau

      Current team is:

      Fab (Button)
      TAA/Doherty/Alonso (Holebas/WB)
      Hazard/Sane/Richarl/Son (Snod)
      Kane/Jimi/Ings

      1.6 ITB. So 5 maybe 6 transfers. Is it worth it and if so after this GW (Haz and Alonso at home to Newcastle) or do it now? If I do it now next FT would be Son out.

      Cheers

        I would say 100% not worth using that valuable chip for those moves!

        1. Devo-McDuff
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Probably right, not having Salah is killing me though and so is trying to figure out if to captain Hazard or not.

            • 2 Years

            crazy to add Son to your WC team also for one game, abs nuts!

            1. Devo-McDuff
                2 months, 8 days ago

                I'm not adding him to the team, he is already in it and has been for all those nice hauls, about the only thing I've got right this season! He'll go next week on FT like I said if I WC this week.

                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  I mean if you wildcard it would be silly to leave Son in your team...booking a transfer down the road (and one game in your case) on WC is bad business!

                  1. Devo-McDuff
                      2 months, 8 days ago

                      Might not be worth the WC overall but that part of it is hardly madness. I would have in theory dealt with all problem areas in the team (not having Salah, Alonso form/price drop, Ings out and Arnau in while can still afford etc.) and it would be the very next transfer which I shouldn't need for anything else after WC. So would only be an issue if there was an injury to key player this week, granted that could happen. I think Son will do well against United and don't want to miss those points. If I do WC I'll probably do it after this GW anyway to see how Hazard does.

                        Go for it, only offering opinion which you asked for. Take some hits to change it up as you please is my advice and save WC, take it, leave it, its you team, do what you want and GL.

                            Yes fair enough, not having a go. Hits might be the way. Decisions decisions!

                1. Devo-McDuff
                    2 months, 8 days ago

                    Maybe for a hit but would mean a mid range mid (Fraser, Pereya etc.) starting most weeks and no easy route back to Son after the Asia Cup. Plus I think Sane has loads of points in him and can possibly match Hazard without the captain headache.

                  If Arnie goes to China Chicharito will be a serious option and could prove to be a great bargain yet.

                Alright lads, thinking.

                Anderson --> Richarlison -4 ?

                Anderson has Arsenal
                He is dropping in price.
                Richarlison will keep him for at least 3 GWs
                My 2nd place rival has him.

                Good move?

                Really tempted to do kane->Auba/kun (-4) this week and then switch back next week. Stupid waste of transfers but i can just see a Kane 2 pointer incoming. They looked tired against Chelsea and never seem to be able to cope with multiple games in a week.
                Have Son as well so it would mean another couple of transfers next week.
                Other option is Son -> Richarlson
                Talk me out of it, go.

                  i think it could be a high scoring game in which this new attacking Utd could get badly exposed at the back, so i'd personally keep Kane this week if i had him

                    Seems like a waste of 2 transfers getting him in & out. What about price implications? I'm assuming he's gone up in price since you bought him so getting him back in may cost you more. Minus 4 also puts me off. United won't keep a clean sheet surely Kane most likely to score. I'd look for other priorities in your squad to address.

                    Deulofeu always been good player but injury prone. Redmond has been patchy whole career so not sure yet. Camarasa at price on set pieces seems non brainer

                    Ok fixtures coming up? I've had Pat and Doherty from the start. 1 CS last 13!!!! I'm contemplating Pat>Guaita for a hit and double up with AWB any decent Dixie

                      Don't believe for a minute you're contemplating Guita for Patricio for a hit unless it's to fund some other transfer this week.

                        No I have exact money for Lingard>Sane

                        I have no problem taking a calculated hit if I think I'll break even or profit.

                        27 total transfers so far which is less than previous seasons

                      Somehow it seems more realistic than my first one of its kind a couple of years ago, where I somehow saw Redmond and Tadic both scoring a hat-trick in the same match.

                      One thing I do remember actually is there was a penalty save from Lacazette. I guess my subconscious is trying to punish me even more for that move!

                      With the mids, I don’t know who X would be. At that price, I might as well go 4 at the back and have Robbo or Alonso at 6m+

                    Aguero has not really lived up to his price this season, 10 goals 7 assists yes, but only twice all season has he had doubt digit returns (20pts - HUD, 13pts - SOT).

                    I'd consider Sane/KDB? Then you have some more ITB to play around with, that defense could be improved.

                    It's a false economy to spend so little in defense, that defense is really weak. You could have a great defense for 2m more, whereas Richarlison could easily match Mane or even Firmino vs Kun.

                      Defence is doing poorly. Anyone with long holds Man City defensive assets aren't getting returns. Digne and Doherty v popular for attacking potential 2 and 1 CS in last 10 games respectively

                    Thanks all. Appreciate the feedback. Was keen for man city cover but yes Now i think aguero could not be worth it. I’ll take Salah and get a Chelsea/Liverpool defender. Aguero > Deeney would be enough to keep both hazard and Salah plus better def

                      Is it crazy to C Richa?
                      I have Hazard but i dont trust him and i will rid him after this week.

                      I also have Kane from big hitters.

                      Right now my C is Rich.

                        I think Kiwivillan will field this.

                        Haz and Rich have blanked last 2 weeks not sure how you can trust either. What is reasonable score you expect from C?

                              So you expect Richarlison to replicate his highest score of the season this week?

                                  Si senor give the ball to Richa and he will score.

                                          He could come good, but boy, thats pushing it (captaining)...no other good options?

                              Is Salah really esential?

                              I cant afford him right now but what with this transfer plans.

                              I have 2 FT and i can downgrade this week Robbo to TAA and next week Alonso and Son to Bednarek and Salah.

                              All for free

                              Or just to rid of Hazard to Salah and Son to Sane??

                                I don't think any player is essential, but as per the article, there will be value to be had and if I had to choose between Mane, Firmino or Salah, I'm paying up for Salah.

                                Chelsea have Newcastle, @Arsenal, @Bournemouth in the next 3, I wouldn't be trying to drop Haz though

                                      I’m in the same boat. Really hard to fit hazard and Salah.

                                          I can have both but i dont want do i need Hazard

                                          Chelsea is awful.

                                        Not saying I have my team figured out but I've managed to have both:

                                        Guita/Foster
                                        Digne, Doherty, AWB, Kolasinac, Holebas
                                        Hazard, Salah, Richarlson, Brooks, Billing
                                        Kane, Lacazette, Rashford

                                        I'm mulling over what to do with my 2 FT this week myself w/ 0.2 ITB

                                          This is not a WC btw, just how I've ended up at this stage - currently 119,786th OVL

                                        Honestly it's a tough call but I'd look to keep Haz so that would mean doing the Bednarek/Salah move next week.

                                    Salahs the best player in the game and essential- you should get him in. If he gets hurt, or suddenly, somehow starts dropping off, you can get off the Mo train and spread those funds. Going without will punish you.

                                  Bednarek (3.9) or Cedric (4.2) for cheap bench fodder and SOT decent fixtures?

                                  A. Camarasa -> KDB/ Sane
                                  B. Mitrovic -> Kun

                                    Thanks for the reply all. Barred last GW, have been lucky with those cheapos especially Camarasa. Even different answers seems the consensus is bringing the City attack

                                      Most likely yeah. A little worried about Spurs fatigue and Son minutes. MUN also looking better. Saving probably the safer play to give flexibility next week I guess.

                                  Who would you rather have?
                                  A) Rashford + Kamara
                                  B) Barnes + Jimenez

                                  Cheers,

                                    B if they are both going to be starting. Kamara is awful.

                                      thanks. Would only be playing Rashford - playing 3 5 2

                                        Definitely A, in that case.

                                      Button and AWB to Bednarek and Guaita?

                                        Would rather double up Guaita with AWB based on recent results

                                          True but he might need the funds for Guaita and Southampton have decent fixtures anyway.

                                      Button gone when Ryan back and Guaita at 5.2 potential steal

                                    It's been like a week and I still don't know what to do with my team.

                                    Fabianski
                                    Luiz Digne Kolasinac
                                    Hazard Richarlison Pogba Anderson
                                    Aubameyang Kane Mitrovic
                                    (Steele Camarasa Chambers Doherty)
                                    2FT, 1.6m ITB

                                    Plan was to do Anderson and Kane to Salah and Rashford, but I feel losing Kane before those fixtures isn't a good idea. Anyone see any other way to get Salah?

                                      It's difficult to bring Salah without removing one of those heavy hitters. Kolasinac to Bednarek this week and Rich, Anderson, Mitro to Salah and co next maybe?

                                        Only thing it would change that I could lose Hazard or Aubameyang rather than Kane, so I'm not sure if worth it. Plus the plan was to stick with Kola until Cardiff(H) at least.

                                    A) Fabs -> Lloris (save other FT and get in Salah next week)
                                    B) Laca + Son -> Kamara + Salah (upgrade Fabs to Lloris next week)
                                    C) Laca + Lovren -> Aguero + Bednarek (take a hit to get in salah if neccesary next week)
                                    D) Something else

                                      Downgrade Lovren this week so that it enables Son and Laca to Salah and Rashford next week?

                                        Tripple manu? With Kaku roaming? Not too confident

                                          Arnie is an option too if you don't want to go there. Either way you have to replace Lovren and Son asap.

                                            Think ill go with B. What is the latest news on lovren? If he is back for next no biggie

                                              I've no idea. I assumed he'll miss a couple of weeks because it's hamstring, but if he's back soon then my plan would change as well.

                                                Then again Gomez is back soon which will see Lovren get reduced minutes.

                                      Can u do Laca + Martial for X Striker (Arnie, or someone cheaper maybe) + Salah?

                                        Nope.. price issues. Only way to get Salah is in the version above basically.

                                    Tarkowshi to liverpool? That would be intresting

                                      Only if he plays. Wouldn't mind getting him in atm at Burnley

                                      Good team, I would look to switch Martial to Eriksen maybe by getting in a cheaper defender for Alonso

                                    What should I be looking at transfer-wise prior to next gameweek... should I hold to accumulate 2FT to get Salah in GW23??

                                    1 FT, 0.1 ITB

                                    Thanks.

                                      yes wait until you have 2 ft's

                                      Son to salah then with another premium making way ....

                                      might be easier to see which other premium is disposable then as I wouldnt feel confident selling any at the moment and you will need to replace son next week anyway...

                                    Which pair will score more points over the next say, 5 GWs?

                                    Hazard Auba
                                    Salah Sane

                                      I reckon they score the same....

                                      marginally in favour of Salah Sane because of Salah's fixtures....

                                        Good to hear that as I have Salah/Sane while my ML rival has Haz/Auba

                                    Fun game of "Who am I?"

                                    "Guita at 4.2 is an absolute bargain. Might even consider a -4 to bring him in"
                                    "Hazard only has 2 double digit returns in his last 13 games"
                                    "Richarlison is terrible. Only 16 points in his last 5. Deulofeu has 31 in his last 5"

                                      probably best to save the free transfer this week as your team looks good....

                                      Next week a restructure with 2 FT's and a hit to bring in Salah id say...

                                    2. Holmes

                                      Looks fine enough to save.
