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.

    Who will play in Sons absence ?

    I'm thinking Moura...

    Viable option ?

    Could be great value at only £6.9M

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      Just not worth bringing him in for 2/3 weeks and forcing you to spend an extra transfer when you could just get someone in that you can keep for 5/6 weeks if needed.

      And game time will probably be shared with Lamela. Don't think either is a clear 2nd choice behind Son.

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        ye that is the main concern...

        spurs are scoring just so many goals...

        Richarlison looks the best option ....

        Just Everton struggling a bit lately....

  2. No Mo Salah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    11 days, 19 hours ago

    really don’t get those ppl selling anderson and rich before such promising gws ahead , hope they get punished ))

    1. waldo666
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      Who do you think will punish me more over the next stretch, Anderson or Salah?

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        Salah

        1. waldo666
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 19 hours ago

          Exactly, also West Ham's next four aren't easy fixtures by any stretch of the imagination.

      2. Holmes
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        Over next 2, Anderson

        1. waldo666
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 19 hours ago

          I wouldn't call 2 GWs a stretch and you really think Anderson will outscore Salah over the next 2 GWs?

          1. Holmes
            • 5 Years
            11 days, 19 hours ago

            Yep plus the downgrade you will be making somewhere else for Anderson to Salah should also be considered

            1. waldo666
              • 8 Years
              11 days, 19 hours ago

              Wow, OK. I do agree that the other side does need to be factored in. In this case it's likely to be Doherty to Bedernak).

      3. No Mo Salah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        well i got both of them and Salah

        1. waldo666
          • 8 Years
          11 days, 17 hours ago

          Congratulations.

    2. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      I get it, but at the same time I think both players are incredible value and I'm not looking to get rid of either.

      1. waldo666
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        I understand that side of it and originally I had planned Sane to Salah but wasn't keen on going Cityless, could go Salahless ofc but I have regretted shipping him out on my WC since that very GW.

        I am certainly not saying Anderson is a bad pick.

        1. F_Ivanovic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 days, 19 hours ago

          Sane is a good option for the next few games, but after that it's a couple of trickier fixtures at the same time Mendy is back which may/may not have an impact on his game time.

          I just think I'd rather have Rich + Anderson compared to Sane + a cheapie.

          1. waldo666
            • 8 Years
            11 days, 19 hours ago

            Yeah fair point and I may even look to ship Sane out at that time, the sacrifice I made was in defence (even though I do have Kamara but always have).

            My most expensive defenders are TAA and Digne at 5.2 (Doherty as well but as I said he likely goes this week)

      2. No Mo Salah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        this

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Anderson blanked the last 2 games and you should check his heat map positioning and stats in the last 2 games when Arnie was back, in comparison with the previous 2 games - crosses, shots, final third touches etc basically down by 50%

  3. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    11 days, 19 hours ago

    Start snodgrass or lingard?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      Tight call.... I think with the amount of goals utd are scoring id go Lingard... just....

    2. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      Snodgrass. Arsenal defence (particularly their left flank) has been v weak. Spurs have been v good defensively recently.

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      I'm selling Lingard and benching Snod so Snod by default but concern over both their minutes

  4. @fpl_phenom
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 19 hours ago

    Am I crazy to be considering Hazard captain over Salah ?

    Team below:

    Fabianski

    TAA | Digne | Wan-Bissaka

    Salah | Hazard | Pogba | Son

    Kane | Rashford | Jimenez

    ---------------------------------
    Button Doherty Obiang Lovren*

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      Nope, both good options. I'll probably be changing my mind every 15 minutes come Fri night/Sat morning.

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        I just get the feeling hes due....

        terible logic, I know!

  5. Rockyrado
      11 days, 19 hours ago

      Hey guys, who would you pick for the next few weeks? Richarlison or Siggy? Was thinking Rich as I want to save a little $$ to bring in Salah?

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        Richarlison from those 2.

        what about Moura from GW23 onwards?

    • Paddington Bear
      • 1 Year

      Who will score more points?

      A) Salah (C), Hazard, Jimenez
      B) Hazard (C), Son, Laca

      Question of wether to do Laca + Son -> on two FT's or wether just to do Fabianski -> Lloris and roll a ft to get Salah in next week

      1. Paddington Bear

        Laca + Son -> Camara + Salah would be the transfers*

      Fabianski | Stek
      Alonso | Robertson | Digne | Doherty | AWB
      Salah | Sane | Martial | Richarlison | Camarasa
      Kane | Jiménez | Success

      Two questions:
      1) Good to go this week?
      2) Which transfer next week?
      A) Martial > Pogba
      B) Success > Ings

        love when you stumble across a nice transfer combination...

        GW23 I could do this :

        Son > Richarlison
        Lovren > Luiz (depends if Lovren is out long term)
        Fabianski > Lloris

        Would give me this team then:

        Lloris Button
        Luiz TAA Doherty Digne Wan-Bissaka
        Salah Hazard Pogba Richarlison Obiang
        Kane Rashford Jiminez

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 days, 19 hours ago

        Next GW will do Son & Auba/Kane to Salah & Arnie. But who goes out of Auba & Kane ? I currently thing Kane out. I reckon Auba can keep pace with Kane. And ill then be able to double up on Liv def and get Robbo or Van Dijk alongside TAA.

        wots the communities thoughts on this ? Thx a lot

          Maybe they help make your decision for you. For me Salah and Kane are essential atm

        Keep changing my mind about WC team but im pretty happy with this:

        Button Guiata
        Kola AWB Robbo Doherty Bednarek
        Sane Salah Hazard Richa Camarasa
        Rash Jime Barnes

        Will probably bring in Pogba and Kane for Hazard and Barnes in the next few GWs. GTG?

          Would change Kolasinac, preferably to Trent if possible

            Thanks for the help. I ended up replacing Robbo with Trent meaning that i have 2 Liverpool players in the team. You would recommend doubling up in defence?

          Why sleep on Kane? Bring him in now if you can.

        Hi all,
        I'm looking for some ideas on what to do next:

        Ederson (Hamer)
        Laporte, Alonso, AWB, Lovern, Bennet
        Salah, Hazard, Westwood, Hojbjerg, 4.2
        Kane, Firminio, Rashford

        I've been doing well in the past few weeks but definitely would appreciate some suggestions

        Thanks

        Which move?

        A) Kola to TAA
        B) Hennessey to Button to Haim money to upgrade Martial to Sane or KDB next week

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          If B, play Doherty or Kola?

        Anderson’s stats have basically fallen off a cliff edge since Arnie has been back and his heat map indicates he is playing deeper and narrower ... two blanks in favourable fixtures as a result of this ... any owners worried ?

          Yes, I am. Will give him 2 more games and if he blanks in those then i will move him on.

        People talking about Kane as a good captain option, but how about Son.

        In the form of his life, guaranteed to start in his last game and likely to get the full 90. Higher average pts/game than Kane recently.

        Surely he's the better option?

          Captain poll has both well down the picking order.

          Are people really talking about Kane as a good captain choice against Utd ?
          Surely most have the likes of Salah, Hazard, Auba or City players as alternative and better captain choices than Kane ?

            Yes. Not really sure who he is talking about. Not seen many here.

        Do these 2FT improve this team?......

        Kamara > Aguero
        Haz > Camarasa

        Fab / Button
        TAA Digne Doherty AWB Kiko Fem
        Salah Haz Richarlison Pogba Anderson
        Kane Jiminez Kamara

      • Marquis-Cha-Cha

        11 days, 17 hours ago

        Crazy?

        Alonso, Richarlison & Billing to TAA, Sane & Camarasa (-4)

        Would give me:

        Fab
        Robertson / TAA / Digne
        Salah / Pogba / Fraser / Sane
        Kane / Rashford / Jimenez

        Button / Camarasa / AWB / Doherty

        1. KAR

          Maybe little bit for - 4 cuz alonso has newcastle (H) and rich might also get points against bournemouth, but who knows, might be worth it cuz of sane.

          1. Marquis-Cha-Cha
            • 3 Years
            11 days, 17 hours ago

            Those are the two that'd have to move to fund Sane. Also those are the only two I'm willing to part with. We'll see. Thanks.

          • 8 Years

          Not crazy but not really worth a hit imo.

          1. Marquis-Cha-Cha
            • 3 Years
            11 days, 17 hours ago

            Could leave out the Camarasa move and it'd be free.

            1. waldo666
              • 8 Years

              Then I would say go for it.

          Thoughts on what to do with this? 2 FTs and 0.8 ITB.

          Fabianski - Button
          Luiz - TAA - Doherty - Digne - AWB
          Hazard - Sane - Richarlison - Pogba - Gibbs-White
          Kane - Lacazette - Rashford

          I feel like Lacazette and Fabianski (?) should be the prioritized transfers, but for whom? What do you guys think? What are the preferred transfers?

          Thanks!

          1. Lazaretti
            • 1 Year
            11 days, 17 hours ago

            Laca to Firmino. Or if you want to change keeper then ship Fabianski out. Not sure if there is a better keeper available at that price range.

            1. TaiwanHC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              11 days, 17 hours ago

              That move would make it very difficult for me to get Salah.

              Do you think that Firmino can cover him?

              1. Bram
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                11 days, 17 hours ago

                Firmino hasn;t looked in anyway capable of keeping pace with Salah - added to that Salah is probably going to get most people's armbands for the next month or so making Firmi doubly unlikely to cover him.

                I'd work toeards Salah but during the transfer window it's always tricky buying budget - will Wolves get a new striker for example. If Wilson goes to Chelsea and starts he could be golden but that's a fair sized if.

              Seems sense if you have no other priorities / places you need the cash.

                I'd bench Jimenez I think but not much in it.

                Start Kamara or Bednarek in place of the injured Ings?

                  Kamara probably but a coin toss,

                        "Paul [Pogba] has had his knock and has had a few days of treatment back home. Hopefully, we can get Paul on his feet during this week.” - it's a fair flag.
