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.

        FH

    As one of the most prolific contributors on this site...I simply have no clue right now with all these matchups etc.

    Will revisit with a clear (sleep filled) head.

    Shame about PogFord and Jimmy...

    Triple GW still possible for Brighton

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3 months, 28 days ago

      Actually, it's pretty unlikely as they could move one of Brighton's postponed fixtures to a GW outside of 32 & 35

    2. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Brighton v Cardiff to GW36 is my guess

  5. OneDennisBergkamp

    Max of 4 blanks in GW33, shouldn't be too tricky to navigate then..

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Minimum of 2 blanks. Man City and Brighton decide the rest.

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 28 days ago

        Is a triple Brighton GW actually possible?

        1. panda07
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Probably not see above

    2. Flapjack ✅

      It’s the players who blank that are the problem however.

      I mean Man Utd and wolves most have 4 or 5 from them. Some have 6.

      Then Man City are popular. another kick to the butthole.

    3. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Max 4 - it’s mathematically always been Max 4 with the fact it clashes with weekend if FA Cup semifinals

      Hope you were not expecting more Lol

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Pretty sure it could have been more but the draw made it max 4

  6. Flapjack ✅
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 28 days ago

    I think we can start justifying getting the odd hit in before 31 as long as it gives you an extra player for that week. That’s a real plus as it’s fun for all the family.

  10. Niho992
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Keep or not to keep Pogba ? (bought for 7,8)

    I will sell Rash definitely(bought for 7.6) and one of the Jimenez/Doherty( bought for 5,5 and 4,4)

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

    2. gaurava1216

      sell

    3. Kiwivillan

      Like 31? Not anytime soon

      1. Niho992
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Not now, but till GW 31 i will sell probably Rash and Jimenez, and keep Pogba cause i will want him on FH in 32 so why to lose on value ?

        and i will want him in GW 34 on my WC...

    4. MTPockets
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I'm not holding over 2 blanks no

    5. Eat my goal!
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I might keep - there is only so many moves that you can make - three I’ve already planned

      Leaving me with 1 free which is more likely to be Doherty than Pogba

      1. Niho992
        3 months, 28 days ago

        yeah, i will probably sell Doherty, Rash and Jimenez till GW 33 and keep Pogba..

  11. Micahrichard
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Shall we plan our team for GW31 and play free hit in GW32 or the other way around? Only have 5 players so far who will play in GW31 though

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      How many for GW33 is the real question?

      1. Micahrichard
        3 months, 28 days ago

        GW 33 hasn't been rescheduled, has it?

    2. Niho992
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I have right now 3 players for GW 31 and i dont have plans to use FH then. I will use my FT probably in GW 32...

    3. Kiwivillan
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I have 1 GW31 player. GW32 is the week to FH

    4. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I only have 4 and that includes Puncheon.

      Just gonna be ok with a couple of hits (if needed only) and try navigate 31 with a FH in 32.

  12. gaurava1216

    Anyone ready for a Kane TC in 36?

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I can’t. Used it on Aguero.

      Ben Crellin doesn’t seem to think spurs will get this magic GW. I can’t undestand it myself

      1. gaurava1216
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        if Brighton beat Millwall then Brighton Vs spurs in 33 will not go ahead... all is possible

        1. Flapjack ✅

          He posted this

          Yeah, I tweeted yesterday that:
          "If Chelsea lose to Man Utd on Monday night, it would make a ton of sense to move CHE vs BHA to GW32 (from GW27)
          That would mean the only teams who could get an "extra" Double GW would be Brighton and Cardiff."

    2. Niho992
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Why in GW 36 ? Whats going on then ???

  13. Flapjack ✅
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    We could do with Watford beating Palace imo

    That means Newcastle who play in 31 will also play in 33.

    It also means AWB plays 33.

    Watford v Fulham is not a fixture many would want.

  14. Uncle John from Jamaica

    Anyone given Vardy a 2nd thought? Should be golden given he has a game every week and some great fixtures.

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Leicester in awful form.

      Tension between Puel and Vardy.

      Pretty expensive really.

      Something will need to change for me to consider him.

    2. MTPockets
      • 9 Years

      Yep. Hazard now playing means I need another fwd instead

    3. gaurava1216
      • 3 Years

      on this plan... Higuain and Vardy will lead me to top 5k

  15. stupendous

    City fans.

    We could face Milwall at Wembley followed by United.

    Leave the kids at home Blues.

      Not overlooking Swansea mind you sorry Swans out there.

    RISK OF BEING OFF
    Man City v Cardiff (off when City progress past Swansea )
    Spurs v Brighton (off only if Brighton beat Millwall)

    One of following will be off, one will be on: just have to wait.
    - Watford^ v Fulham
    - Newcastle v Crystal Palace^

    DEFINITELY OFF
    Wolves v Man Utd - OFF as one will be in semis (likely for GW35)

    Definitely four teams blank and very likely 6 teams and good chance 8 teams blank in 33.

    Expect rearranged games to potentially be announced by the weekend.

        3 months, 28 days ago

        GW32 FH
        GW34 WC
        GW35 BB
        Extra DGW to be scheduled - TC

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          That's one of the top 3.
          The others are a fair way behind.

    3. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I would say Wolves v Man U is more likely to be moved to 32. Would mean the Manchester Derby in 35 (better for Sky) and Arsenal v Wolves would move to 35 also accordingly

      1. Jᴀʀᴠish
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Would mean Man City v Cardiff likely for 32.

        1. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
          3 months, 28 days ago

          And that could mean Chelsea v Brighton GW32 too.

          So many potentials it’s best to wait and see.

    4. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      And also, if Man City go through in the FACQF and Brighton go out, it would make sense for Brighton v Cardiff to be rearranged to the weekend of GW33.

      1. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I think Spurs would like to host Brighton GW33 if Brighton go out. Don’t think Spurs season ticket holders would be chuffed... but wait.... where would spurs play that weekend if semi finals are at Wembley ! Will spurs be home in new stadium by April. Maybe spurs v Brighton goes to DGW35 and you might be right.

        1. Jᴀʀᴠish
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Yep - Spurs due to play at home FA Cup semi final weekend is an extra dimension pretty much everyone has missed.

      2. Ruth_NZ
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        So that means a fair chance of a Chelsea DGW32 then you think?

        OP says "expect rearranged games to potentially be announced by the weekend". This is wrong, isn't it? Typically they will wait till the FAC QFs are played, no? So during GW31?

        1. Jᴀʀᴠish
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Chelsea DGW32 looks a distinct possibility to me, yes.

          Not sure about the timings of the announcements - if they do the same as last season it will be after GW31, but only 15/16 days between GW31 and midweek GW32 may cause problems - Man City have shown it can be done by them with the DGW25 rearrangement, but not sure all teams can turn around that fast with things like police/transport notice to take into consideration.

        2. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Can’t see many fixtures rearranged until after the QFs have been played ... TV schedule will drive it all, plus oddities like Chelsea/ Wembley issue ...expect and plan for a few twists that may occur

          1. Johannes
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            I think we will get most fixtures rearranged this week.

            Don't think the Spurs thing is an issue. They could play Friday or Monday. Every other midweek is a CL week, bar GW30. Assuming Spurs beat Dortmund, we won't know if they make the semifinal before after GW34. I'm fairly sure they rather put the game on a Friday or a Monday.

            Chelsea - Brighton looks likely to go to GW32 with Brighton - Cardiff moving elsewhere.

            United - Wolves to GW32 and City - United to GW35 is definitely a possibility. Wolves - Arsenal to GW35 as mentioned, and GW32 open for City - Cardiff if/when City beat Swansea. All of those could be announced this week, bar City - Cardiff.. but we would know where that game goes if City win.

            Can't see them waiting to rearrange all of the fixtures until after the FA cup quarterfinal due to the short turnaround this year. Every other year they have had 30+ days from the date they announce the new fixture until it's played, bar some exceptions. We might have some exceptions this year too, but I doubt they'll hold off with all of the fixtures.

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 28 days ago

              I doubt the TV scheduling can be agreed this week because the companies will need to know who will blank in 33 to allocate the games to dates and evenings ... this is the main driver for the fixtures, not the logistics ... the money and advertising involved is too important

              Same thing happened last season, so it will be interesting to see what happens this season ... either way I have all my chips and not too worried 🙂

              1. Johannes
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                They announce the April TV fixtures at around 22 February. I think we will get an announcement this week.

                As mentioned there is a much much shorter turnaround this season.

                I do realise I missed a point on Tottenham though. Could make sense to move it to 35 even if Brighton do go out.

                Most of this don't matter for us with FH and WC left though, at least not until GW32.

                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  The first thing we need to decide is when to use our Free Hit chip, since this will affect whether to build towards BGW31 or DGW 32.
                  Other decisions can wait.

                2. Hotdogs for Tea
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 28 days ago

                  They won’t know some of the fixtures for April until after 16 March FA Cup games, so not sure how they can announce them on 22 Feb?

                  I think some fixtures may be set early, as I originally alluded to, but not all. Some of the 31 blanks may go to 35 or other gameweeks which gives more time.

                  There are 2 weeks between GW31 & GW32 which, based on the time it took to announce the City DGW (a week ?), is enough time to organise fixtures imho, especially if they don’t go into GW32.

                  Regarding Spurs at home on the same weekend of FA Cup semis, I think it would be very difficult to play 2 games at Wembley in consecutive days (Mon or Fri) for ‘different competitions’ - it will need all the sponsors, tournament branding, stadium advertising etc changed over, corporate use changes, different caterers, staff and security ... all changed overnight ? policing for 3 days on the trot isn’t going to be easy either with overtime for the police ...

                  Any way, lets see how it plays out 🙂

              GWs 29, 30, 33, 34, 36 and 37 midweeks are all in Champions League and Europa League weeks.

              Just two fixtures on the end ...

                Yes, looks like 31>35 and 35>33 is possible.

                  Yip, it indicates moving fixtures after 31 and into 32 from any gameweek can be done in the time I suppose

                  Logic probably gives way to the TV scheduling and fixtures could be moved anywhere ... time to sit tight and take comfort in the FH & WC safely tucked away in our pockets 🙂

    Feeling happy with the blank scenerio.

    GK Allison, Pat
    DEF Trent, Perreria, Kola, Luiz, Rice
    MID Salah, Fraser, Anderson, Son, Pogba
    FWD Auba, Rashford, Auba.

    That's 8 for GW 31 (bench Kola and Auba) and 9 for GW 33(benching Rice as dodgy fixture)

    GW28 sell Son for Maddisons
    GW29 Carry
    GW 30 Sell Jimmy for Wilson and either Pogba for Haz or Rashford for Hazard

    That's 11 for 31 and 33

    GW 32 Free hit
    GW 34 Wcard
    GW 35 Boost

    80 points to catch and feeling a little confident

        10 mill? Wow where’s it coming from ?

        I think they are useful for the next 3 as you can basically downgrade them to anyone so good for team structure heading into 31

          Have 7.7 atm.
          Alonso may go and Richo. Obviously hits are needed to have strong teams in 31 and 33.

            Yeah fair enough. The exact two I removed last week for a hit and no regrets.

                FT ?!? = Free Transfer

                  Yeah, had 2 before the DGW 🙁

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

      With 8 players that have a game in 31, I am looking at bringing City players back in 🙂

  25. Bagheri Arce
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Am I missing something?

    Surely if you go :
    GW32 FH
    GW34 WC
    GW35 BB

    Then that means your GW31 is also your GW33 team plus 1 free transfer. So is that the plan?

    e.g. you need to have 3 Liverpool, 2 Chelsea, 2 West Ham, 2 Bournemouth, 2 Leicester and maybe Barnes....or similar

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Yep spot on.

      Newcastle are an odd one if you wanna gamble as great fixtures and have a 31 game, but could blank in 33 if palace beat Watford

      1. Kiwivillan
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Fixtures would be great but it's Newcastle

        1. Flapjack ✅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          They have much better options than Leicester imo

          1. Kiwivillan
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            You have Leicester defenders with attacking stats vs Newcastle defenders with virtually none. Not looking at attackers from either team just yet

            1. Flapjack ✅
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 28 days ago

              Newcastle players are quite a bit cheaper and have higher CS chances I’d say

              1. Kiwivillan
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 28 days ago

                Huddersfield and maybe Everton in the next 5. Don't see CS vs Burnley Wham Bournemouth

    2. MTPockets
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      You're not missing it

    3. Niho992
      3 months, 28 days ago

      One Leicester is enough, believe me... (Pereira)

    4. Jacky boy
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      impossible to ignore barnes

      1. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Especially when you consider his form and stats.

    5. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      We're all clever on here, aren't we? 😀

  26. Niho992
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Why some people talking about TC Kane in GW 36 ? Is it chance Spurs will have DGW then or what ? what need to happen..

    If it then FH GW32 WC34 BB 35 and TC 36... ??

    1. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      As I posted above Ben Crellin doesn’t think spurs will have a DGW outside of 32 or 35

      1. Niho992
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Ok, thank you. Then TC in SGW probably...

        1. Flapjack ✅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Plenty of time to decide. You’ll just know when it’s time to play it

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Brighton need to make FA Cup semi final and PL game needs to be placed in 36.

      1. Niho992
        3 months, 28 days ago

        If they beat Milwall then definitely will be DGW ?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Brighton would have 3 DGWs or 1 DGW and a triple GW.

  27. Scotty B
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    I'm confused now whether bringing in Rondon is a good idea as he could blank in 33...Arnie, King or Barnes better options?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Who do you think scores more in GWs 27-30?

      1. Scotty B
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Rondon

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Get him then, you can sell in 33 if he blanks.
          If it's close, maybe one of the others to save a transfer or benching.

    2. Marty McFly
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Gw33 Rondon > Wilson? Depends on your chip strategy.

    3. Flapjack ✅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      If you’re prepared to captain him this week it’s worth the gamble.

      1. Scotty B
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I actually am at home to Huddersfield

        1. Flapjack ✅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          If I could find a way I’d do exactly the same.

          Huddersfield are just woeful. It’s a great option considering the fixtures this week

  28. Marty McFly
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Chilwell or Pereira?

    Chilwell allows me to do Pogba > Haz in a week or two. Getting Pereira would mean I need a double Pogba price rise or single Haz price drop.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I'm looking at both in potentially

  29. Jᴀʀᴠish
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Wolves v Man U in GW33 is a definite blank, so that well could be moved to GW32 meaning the Manchester Derby would be 35, which I would suspect is Sky's preference.

    1. Niho992
      3 months, 28 days ago

      so thats mean Arsenal wont have two games in GW 32 ?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Plot twist.

  30. MTPockets

    Now we just need the actual dgw fixtures...
