Fixtures

How Chelsea vs Man United could affect FPL schedule

Fantasy Premier League managers are just a few hours away from finding out the complete line-up of fixtures in Blank Gameweek 31.

That round of matches takes place on the same weekend as the FA Cup quarter-finals, which will be drawn this evening.

Just one Blank Gameweek 31 match is yet to learn its fate, hinging on the result of tonight’s FA Cup meeting between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are currently scheduled to travel to Everton then, but if they win tonight that match will be postponed and rearranged.

Those hoping for more Blanks, and therefore more fixtures in upcoming Double Gameweeks, should be backing Maurizio Sarri’s men in the cup.

That’s because opponents Manchester United have already had their Gameweek 31 fixture postponed by Manchester City winning their fifth-round tie at Newport County.

The two city rivals were due to meet at Old Trafford on the weekend of March 16, but will now face each other on a rearranged date, most likely in Gameweek 32.

A win for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side would mean that the number of Gameweek 31 Blanks, currently at five, and resulting Doubles, would remain the same.

The matches already postponed from Blank Gameweek 31 are:

Watford v Southampton
Brighton v Cardiff
Man United v Man City
Wolves v Arsenal
Tottenham v Crystal Palace

Furthermore, if both Wolves and Manchester United were to make it to the FA Cup semi-finals then the two of them would only cause one Gameweek 33 fixture to become a Blank.

The two sides are currently set to meet each other at Molineux on the weekend of April 6.

However, if Chelsea were to win tonight, and then progress from their quarter-final too, Wolves making it to the last four as well as them would postpone two matches.

That’s because Sarri’s men are set to host West Ham in Blank Gameweek 33, who have already been eliminated from the FA Cup.

A Chelsea FA Cup exit, and a presence in both Blank Gameweeks, would drastically change the landscape for the FPL ‘chip season’.

Having options such as Eden Hazard (£10.9m), Gonzalo Higuain (£9.5m), Marcos Alonso (£6.5m) or David Luiz (£5.9m) available for matches against Everton and West Ham would be a great help to Fantasy managers.

After all, there are very few widely-owned Fantasy options set to play in Gameweek 31 with 10 teams already absent from that weekend of action.

Confirmed Blank Gameweek 31:
West Ham v Huddersfield
Bournemouth v Newcastle
Burnley v Leicester
Fulham v Liverpool

However, Chelsea ending up involved in Blank Gameweek 31 would mean a missed opportunity for more Doubles, and that they would not have more than one Double Gameweek match this season.

The Blues currently have an outstanding game waiting to be rearranged, their Gameweek 27 hosting of Brighton, but need to beat Manchester United to add more to that list.

Hazard or Higuain could make potential Triple Captain options if Chelsea are able to make it through to subsequent rounds of the FA Cup.

For example, if Chelsea were to have their rearranged Gameweek 31 fixture in Gameweek 32, the would have a Double of Cardiff (away) and Everton (away) – appealing stuff.

Likewise, if Chelsea were to make it to the FA Cup semi-finals they could face Burnley (home) and West Ham (home) in a Double Gameweek 35.

The Blues may still have a Double in Gameweek 32 though even if they get eliminated, as their outstanding meeting with Brighton could be moved there if the Seagulls don’t already have a fixture rearranged there.

    Surely this could have waited five hours by which time we would know the answer.......

      It is nice since it gives us more to cheer for. I like the effort of the scouts . Well done scouts

      agreed but FFS is a business (to my knowledge) so that lads have to keep fresh content posted

    Too many ifs to comprehend.

    1. Daniel - The Veteran
      • 9 Years

      Chelsea wining will give us 3 or maybe 4 double GW's till the end, so KTBFFH

    2. Mysterion

      There's some big ifs and even bigger butts up there...

  3. Daniel - The Veteran

    Bottom line, Chelsea has to win tonight!!! Go blues

        what a sad BGW31 it will be with 4 fixtures

        I hope so otherwise I might have to consider keeping Richarlison. Aarrrrrgggghhhh!

      Is hazard worth sacrificing in order to get auba for gw27 - when I'll want hazard in my gw31 team (if Chelsea lose tonight)

      Thanks

        Depends on chip strategy. See below

        1. Flynny
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Free hitting 32.

          Looking to have 8 or 9 in 31.

          Think it's still worth having auba this week for the strong captaincy option even if I have to lose hazard and get back in a couple of weeks

          1. zotter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            son is a viable alternative imo. Straight swap with Aguero but surgery involving more than one player not so sure

            1. Flynny
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              I should add that I have 2fts.

              So its hazard and Kamara to auba and mcneil (who plays in the blanks)

              Prob do richarlison to Anderson (plays 27 and 31) for a hit....

              1. zotter

                • 9 Years

                Do you have Son ?

                1. Flynny
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Yes I have son....

                    Captain son.

                2 months, 6 days ago

                I’m considering the same moves as you but im really not sure of selling Hazard specially if they lose tonight.

                1. Flynny
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  The other good thing about getting auba is that I can make him kun for a few weeks too before bgw31....

                  I think it's better to take a few hits to get the best options that to focus solely on the blanks....

                  1. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    If Chelsea win tonight I’ll definitely consider selling Hazard.

                    I also like Auba as the straight swap to Kun is easy

                    1. Flynny
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Think I'm with you Karan

      It’s kind of this week (for those with all chips left) where you have to commit to a 31 or 32 free hit

      If 32 free hit pereira and perhaps Fanderson come in

      If 31 free hit then arsenal spurs players more to the fore

      1. Holmes
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Dont think spurs/Arsenal players are required no matter whether you FH in 31 or not.

        1. The 5% Team
            2 months, 6 days ago

            maybe one of each then...Son and Auba

            1. zotter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              If you building to pile for 32 doublers maybe need more

        2. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Completely agree. That’s where I’m stuck at.

          1. zotter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Fairly sure I am doing the free hit 32 thing as gives you a strong blank 33 too. But sub optimal transfers for four weeks !

            1. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Yup even I’m sold on FH32 but I haven’t given up the idea of bringing in Auba/Laca this week.

              My transfers solely depend on what happens with Chelsea vs United. Hazard stays if they lose but I’m very tempted to sell if they win.

        3. Hart-ake

          2 months, 6 days ago

          Not sure about this- think Pereira could be great in either strategy.

          1. zotter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Which helps kick the decision down the line a week or two

        4. Sting in the Tail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          If you free hit gw31 Arsenal players become essential as guaranteed gw33 fixture and hopefully double gw32 (triple captain?)

          Off topic however, do you guys think aliens are real? I mean, I can not just google search anymore without being asked to confirm the cars in boxes. I am now seriously curious. Incase anyone has seen an alien recently. Care to share please to help google.

                              Like cars, pants etc in boxes then one is asked to check the right box(es) with them. That kind of a thing.

                          Do you mean "are there aliens on this planet at the moment"? No
                          or
                          "are there aliens on any planet in the universe at the moment"? Most definitely yes.

                                      Wow. So that's it! I am just a dummy and google are using people to indirectly train their models and we aren't getting paid for that. Feck google!!

                                        Some think the recent "drone" activity which shut down the airport's down south have links to unidentified flying objects

                                        Of course we will never know the truth, it's something the authorities in charge will never release information of if it were true

                                        Are then any players you just can't sell as there's too much value tied up in them?

                                          Wouldn't sell them for just one GW if possible.

                                              do you mean don't want to sell because you like the look of your team value or are reluctant to sell because if you got rid it would be very expensive to buy them back?

                                                as we're into the final third of the season, player value isn't that important anymore imo...just get the best players who you think will get the most points

                                              I have 4 players that don’t blank in gw 31. Salah, Diop, Richa and Felipe (5 if you count Hamer) FH 31 must be the way to go rather than FH in 32 right?

                                                Richa could blank 31

                                                  maybe, but if Chelsea wins tonight, it will be a sad BGW31 with only 4 fixtures. I probably won't want to use my FH chip for that and play with only 7-8 player squad

But if someone like me (with only fabianski, steve cook, mane, salah and ashley barnes currently available for GW31) just approaches gw31 with FTs, i will be transferring in tosh for the next few weeks instead of good DGW32 players...
                                                    Think i am forced down the FH GW31 route

                                                So basically, with a standard team with no CHE players:

                                                if CHE wins tonight, FH 32
                                                if CHE loses tonight, FH 31

                                                    I'm going to FH in gw32 regardless.
                                                    Chelsea going out could help with Fielding 11 players in gw31 though

                                                  Looks like a FH31 or FH32 team?

                                                        Looks like a team waiting for Kane and oblivious to the blanks !

                                                          Rather an "A" forward before Kane.

                                                    Depends on the Chelsea result, I would say.

                                                      Don't really want to keep Richo or Alonso tbh.

                                                    FH32 still best imo
                                                    Try to get pool, bou, lei players

                                                  Think one of the key things about a FH31 strategy is looking at teams which have a DGW32, but also play in 33. So far, Arsenal and Soton, but there should be more. Possibly Spurs or Chelsea?

                                                    This is crucial. And much you won’t know until after 31

                                                    So far, Arsenal and Soton? Their double in 32 is confirmed?

                                                        Nothing stopping their respective doubles from being in 35 though right?

                                                            Doubt they would be delayed for no reason

                                                          Yeah just that you mentioned those two as already fitting the DGW32+33 requirement so wanted to make sure...

                                                    Will you go for a full team of dgw players?

                                                      Definitely wouldn’t keep salah. If wanted a Liverpool would get a cheaper option in Mane or Firm. Main issue is it makes spurs assets difficult to get for the dgw

                                                        Will sell him for one gw + to get some money

                                                        That's the beauty of FHitting in 32. You can have a good few weeks to assess form and dgw. fixtures before committing yourself. No need to commit until gw32 deadline. You just have to minimise damage up to then, especially gw31. I would never have 15dgw players in a BB dgweek but I would if possible play 10/11 in a FH dgw. There will be some single gameweekers worth playing due to fixtures.

                                                      Chelsea suddenly become gold whichever strategy on FH if they lose tonight. Okay for 31 and 33 and double in 32.

                                                        Just because they won't have a blank or you expect them to improve?

                                                          Because they are good for a fh32 strategy. Only team with decent options apart from Liverpool

                                                        BBC loving the FA Cup draw. Arsenal vs Man Utd in Round 4 and Chelsea vs Man Utd in Round 5.

                                                        Only live PL football they will ever get.

                                                        interesting to compare trent and robbo:

                                                        trent 18 goals attempts (6 on target) to robertson's 11 (3 on target). and trent has a goal to his name.
                                                        trent 109 crosses attempted to robbo's 80, with a 25.7% completion rate vs rob's 12.5% (perhaps due to being on corners sometimes)
                                                        all this having only played 1517 mins vs rob's 2145 (mostly owing to injury)

                                                        caveat that i think the style of robertson's delivery is more dangerous than trent's, as when it does find a liverpool player it's likely to be a big chance to feet rather than a header. but notable that trent outperforms someone like pereira both in goal threat and assist potential according to underlying stats at least. if he can stay fit he's incredible value.

                                                            Yep.
                                                            I think I'll swap Robbo to taa when I WC to free up some cash

                                                              Don't do this, went horribly wrong when I did it, if you have value in Robbo just keep him.

                                                                I'm leaning towards the FH31 camp as I can get 9 DGW starters (plus Salah and Robbo) for GW32 only using 2 free xfers, but I can only get 8 starters for BGW 31 using 2 free xfers.

                                                                Hamer to Ryan mostly locked up, but Targett to X still TBD depending on CP/WAT/BRI draw tonight. Will probably go for a Defender on whoever is most likely to get knocked out so I pick up a player for BGW33.
