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.

          He is very bonito

  2. Mr Wizard
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Anyone fancy a punt on Hudson-Odoi (4.2) at home to Newcastle?

    He’s been impressive recently and with Sarri’s comments he could get a run out?

    1. Syd.
      • 9 Years

      Willian or Pedro will start

    2. Kiwivillan

      Played 41mins all season. Chelsea rubbish anyway

      1. Mr Wizard
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        He could come on for a cameo and score the winner (fingers crossed)

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          And no sane person would waste a spot playing him in their 11

  3. Syd.

    Man City - 16 goals scored in 4 days

    That must be a record within itself albeit the opposition wasn't the toughest.

    1. El Lobito
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      No class. Fergie used to tell his players to stop scoring when they were out of sight against much inferior opposition.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      That could become 20 goals in 9 days soon

      1. Fossit
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        or stay 16 😉

      2. Wolves Ay We

    After debating all week which one from Kane/Aubameyang and which one from Hazard/Sané/Pogba to lose for Salah I think I might just keep them and persevere without Salah for this week anyway.

    His points hauls have mainly come from penalties lately so selling penalty takers themselves may not be the wisest and could easily backfire. I might wait a week and see if an injury/suspension makes my decision any easier

    1. FPL_DON
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      doing the same mate for similar reasons plus i think the big hitters i have (auba, kane and hazard) have better fixtures.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Same here but will get Salah next week

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      If you had trippier would you be selling?

      He has nice fixtures but seems to be avoiding attacking returns pretty effectively.

      I like to have a fair chunk of budget at the back usually but he seems pretty inefficient at the moment.

      In case it's useful, other defenders are Robertson, Doherty, holebas (also too much), schindler (fail).

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Yeah, so much money required further forward at the moment that that seems sensible.

          Trying to work out if I should dump trip or holebas for taa but don't really like either at the moment.

    8. SADIO SANÉ
      • 3 Years

      How many Pogba blanks will it take for you to get rid?

      1. El Lobito
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        He goes in bursts. Happy to keep through a barren spell. Anyway, he was unlucky not to score v Newcastle.

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

        I'm looking to get in, but if he blanked the next two, or two in three, I would hold off.

      3. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        He's double pointed 3 of last 4 since change of manager. That's 1 more double figure haul than Hazard has in last 13 games.

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 3 Years

          So your answer is...?

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            It's a laughable question. He's had 3 double figure hauls in a row under new manager and then blanks 1 week

          Every other post is you comparing someone to Hazard. Give it a rest mate, we get it - you don't like him.

          I'll be looking forward to your absence when he scores a brace this weekend.

      Captain blanking Haz v NEW or Salah v a tough Brighton?

      1. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        The stars are aligning for Hazard with Willian and Pedro healthy again.

        1. El Lobito
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          I am thinking the same but he is such a troll and he nor Chelsea have done much of late.

          • 1 Year
          2 months, 8 days ago

          They are until they concede. They were strong v Utd but fell away after the first goal. Utd could have scored more, and would have had Lingard played over Mata.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Chelsea aren't rejuvenated Man U atm. 11 goals last 10 games.

              True. It's a toughie.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        I'm going Hazard. Think Brighton away is a tougher fixture and Newcastle at home. Plus if I switch from Haz to Salah he'll troll me with a brace.

      Since Wayne Hennessey is in hot water over his penchant for fascism and all, is the 4.2m chap the new number 1?

        I think he was with 3 out of 5 CS except for City and Chelsea. Hodgson saying it's good to have such competition between goalies after Hennessey I think had recovered. The salute is the icing on the cake

        Guaita is the better keeper anne frankly should be the #1 regardless

      To get Salah this week, I'd have to sell one of Kane/Aubameyang AND one of Hazard/Pogba/Sané

      Is it worth it? Yay/Nay?

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        No

        Brighton at home are no pushover and Liverpool lost 2 in a row now. I don't think it's worth it anyway.

        No. Imo, it's not imperative to get Salah in unti GW 25.

            yep, I'm waiting until GW26 even

        3. Prawnsandwich
            2 months, 8 days ago

            If you think Captain Salah vs Brighton can outscore Haz in a misfiring Chelsea side...

            And maybe Rashford mightn't be too far off Kane this GW, maybe even over the next few fixtures then maybe.....

            Will Liverpool really put less than 2 or 3 past Brighton?

        4. Niho992

            Evening lads. Im little stucked here. Could use your help. I have 2 FT and i dont know what i should do here i dont want to waste my FT.

            So 2 FT and 1.7 ITB

            Ederson
            WB-Pereira-Alonso-Robbo
            Hazzo-Richa(C)-Fanderson-Pogba-Son
            Kane

            Hamer-Jimenez-Kamara-Doherty

            What i should do fellas? I will rid of Song probably cause he is one more game here and i havent other issue and i can save other transfer to have 2 FT for Gw after this.

            So Son to Sane,Mane,KdB, Eriksen ????

            Cheers. Thx in advance.

              I would keep son this week could score big before heading off, could maybe get salah in by doing Son + Pogba > Salah + cheap mid?

              Down grade Alonso or Robbo to D.Luiz or TAA this week. Gives you more in the bank to get in Salah for Son. F.Anderson to Camarasa

              1. Niho992
                  2 months, 8 days ago

                  why everyone wants Salah, yes he is biggest scorer, but i can afford 2 great option with his value.
                  I will keep Pogba definitely !

              Gah, this site has been taken over by a bot spamming stats about the last few gameweeks every time I log in. This site desperately needs the ability to ignore posts from any account we choose to.

                This would be a much welcome feature. If it doesnt get implemented and the site doesnt improve, I for one will not be renewing my membership next season. I very rarely use the members area and just pay each year to support the site which I really enjoyed the past few seasons. This season not as much, if you call out a poster or post something in jest you're in danger of getting your account frozen. Yet the usual spammers are almost encouraged.

              Poll has Salah and Haz as top two captains. I can see everyone missing a trick by not captaining Sterling, Sane or KdB.

                        Why? Great fixtures with awful Bou defence.

                          Check his recent scoring. Will DCL play up front? Howe said after Watford game defence needs working on

                  What to do with this lot?

                  Lloris, Speroni
                  Alexander-Arnold, Digne, Doherty, Wan-Bissaka, Bednarek
                  Salah, Hazard, Pogba, Richarlison, F. Anderson
                  Kane, Jimenez, Kamara

                  Two free transfers and unfortunately no money in the bank.

                      Maybe it is because I used my wildcard two weeks ago. However I had a terrible crash from overall rang 6,000 to 124,000 in a few weeks. That is why I lay in bed at Christmas and New Year and cried. This game is not for me.

                        Agree with Dunas_Dog. Best move is probably to burn a transfer.

                      F.Anderson + Kamara > Arnautovic + Camarasa.

                    Could get Salah with 1 free transfer - Hazard to Salah. But planning to captain Aubameyang so would you

                    A Make transfer this week
                    B Wait and have 2 frees next week

                      B. Why captain Auba?

                        2 months, 8 days ago

                        Because I just have feeling this is week he will haul. Stats suggest he is due and West Ham defence not brilliant

                        1. El Lobito
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 8 days ago

                          Fair enough, could be a great differential. Best of luck.

                              Only Jiminez out of that lot and contemplating moving him on soon

                              Haz + Jimenez and not close.

                            Martial, Son, Hazard -> Fanderson, Salah, Auba

                            Yay or nay?

                              That's 3 mids to 2 mids and 1 forward?

                                There are more transfers involved, and this is the effective outcome in my starting 11.

                                  Personally after Son has gone I much prefer the players you're getting in

                              Hamer -> Guaita and hope it pays for itself this week? Otherwise pretty good, still undecided on captaincy myself

                              play AWB over Zanka

                            @Kiwivillan are you selling Salah if he blanks this weekend? That would be 4/5 points in 2 games. Even Xhaka will have scored over 3x as many points as him in the last 2. Or will you give him one more week?

                            Brought Auba in last week. Would you make him Rashford/Arnautovic and get Salah, or keep Auba and get Mane?

                            Both scenarios have Bednarek in for Alonso next week.

                              Get Salah

                              Rashford for jiminez for next few game weeks then swap back

                              Y/N reason 🙂

                                Decent idea, Rashford looks decent until he doesn't start (no idea how long that'll be)l though)

                                1. Come on you Kante
                                    2 months, 8 days ago

                                    Only things stopping me is if Lukaku form will push Rashford out but ole is a big fan of Rashford

                                      Looks like he may just push him out wide, not ideal but not a disaster at that price

                                      1. Come on you Kante
                                          2 months, 8 days ago

                                          definitely value for money and will continue to rise if form continues

                                          Thanks

                                              I would like to think so Clyne gone and Gomez and national still out injured and I’ve heard vvd is out through illness roll the dice
