Fixtures

Blank Gameweek 33 picture complete as Spurs reveal Double Gameweek fixtures

Brighton and Hove Albion’s success in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup means that we now finally know how many teams will blank in Gameweek 33.

The Seagulls came back from two goals down against Millwall on Sunday to force extra-time and penalties, running out 5-4 winners in the subsequent shootout.

With the FA Cup semi-finals taking place on the same weekend as Gameweek 33, eight sides will be without a Premier League fixture that weekend: Brighton, Manchester City, Wolves, Watford, Spurs, Cardiff, Manchester United and Fulham.

The six remaining fixtures that will take place are:

The article that went out yesterday evening goes into more detail as to the ramifications of the other three quarter-finals.

As for Brighton, they had three top-flight fixtures that needed rescheduling as a result of clashes with the two domestic cups: Chelsea (a), Cardiff (h) and Spurs (a).

One of those matches has already been rearranged.

Spurs announced after full-time at the Den that they will entertain Brighton in Double Gameweek 35 and Crystal Palace in Double Gameweek 32.

The fact that Chelsea are still in European competition means that the Seagulls’ outstanding meeting with the Blues could very well be rescheduled for Double Gameweek 32 (there are no Europa League ties in that free midweek).

Albion’s home match against Cardiff would appear likely, then, to fall into a separate Double Gameweek later in the season.

We will likely get confirmation of this in the next few days.

Spurs’ rather mixed Double Gameweek schedule looks like this:

GW32
Liverpool v Spurs
Spurs v Crystal Palace

GW35
Man City v Spurs
Spurs v Brighton

Palace’s Double Gameweek 32 is as follows:

GW32
Crystal Palace v Huddersfield
Spurs v Crystal Palace

Finally, Brighton’s rather unappealing Double Gameweek 35 is comprised of:

GW35
Wolves v Brighton
Spurs v Brighton

We’ll have more on the Seagulls’ FA Cup quarter-final itself in our Scout Notes tomorrow.

    Seem like a plan for next 4 GW's with no WC?:-

    Use FH - DGW32
    12 players currently so will bench Anderson away at Chelsea - GW33
    Use 1 of 2 FT in prep for DGW 35 - GW34
    Make 3 transfers for -4 & use BB - DGW35

    DDG
    Doherty VVD Luiz
    Salah Richarlison Maddison Mane Anderson
    Wilson Higuain Rondon 

    Boruc Rondon Pereira Bednarek

      Plans for 4 weeks in advance just change all the time

      Think you lose any stored transfers after using your free hit so you’ll only have 1 FT after. My advice is to make a transfer in prep for later weeks then activate free hit.

        3 months, 2 days ago

        Actually, others below saying that using free hit cancels any transfers that week, even if you do it before activating. So plan for only having 1 ft after.

      “... Make 3 transfers for -4 & use BB - DGW35 ...”. Chip and FTs together? Typo or error?

      1. Scotty B
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        FH - 32
        Save FT - 33 (have 12 men currently so even if one for injured can still put a full 11 out)
        Will only use 1 of 2 FT - 34
        Make 3 transfers for -4 & BB - 35

    What's the consensus on Wolves options?

    Surely they will heavily rotate against Man Utd given their season rests on the FA cup game a few days later....

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

      Yeah I’m not convinced by any of them. He loves to rotate and surely will.

      I think may have to avoid

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

        However I strongly doubt any of us will truly have 11 players playing twice. So at peace with some rotation.. but wolves seem a bigger risk than others

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Jimenez is the only one tempting me

    2. Pompel
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Was thinking to keep Jiminez, but not so sure now. Think I'll avoid, maybe get Zaha instead.

    3. Ross From Friends
        3 months, 3 days ago

        i think only Raul will play both games and subbed off early

      • Pat Bonner
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Think I’ll avoid wolves and Watford

      • EMBOLOFAN
          3 months, 3 days ago

          united attack rotation more likely than jimi. they dont really have a replacement for him in current system

          doherty could easily be rested but idk might risk it

          1. Pompel
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Boly or AWB good alternatives to Doherty

            1. EMBOLOFAN
                3 months, 3 days ago

                boly a good shout actually

                1. Bagheri Arce
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Boly should play both.

                  Worries about Jiminez. I agree he is irreplaceable in their system but would be madness to tire their best player out midweek

        • AzzaroMax99
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          If I do Salah to Mane tonight and then activate FH chip, that transfer will be cancelled in gw33?

          1. gaurava1216
            • 3 Years

            yes

            Yes salah to mane would get cancelled out if you activate FH this GW.

        • gaurava1216
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          A or B

          A) Kane Dendonker Valery
          B) Jimi Son PVA

            When they are officially announced - likely next few days

              Mon-Wed

            • Birmingham Bromwich Villa
                3 months, 3 days ago

                GW32 Extra games will be:

                1. Wolves v Man U
                2. Spurs v Palace
                Both above confirmed
                3. Man City v Cardiff
                4. Chelsea v Brighton
                5. Watford v Fulham or Southampton

                GW35 Extra will be:
                1. Man U v Man C
                2. Spurs v Brighton
                Both above confirmed
                3. Wolves v Arsenal
                4. Watford v Southampton or Fulham

                TBC Brighton v Cardiff for 33,34,36 or 37.

                Technically Watford’s two don’t have to be 32/35 but very likely will be - unless they request not to play midweek before a Wembley semi. And it might move to 33,34,36 or 37

                Progression in Europe means 33/34 QFs and 36/37 SFs are not options for DGW for these elite teams.

              Best non-Palace def for 4.6m?

              3 months, 3 days ago

              Is it possible to make a GW 32 transfer and then use your free hit? That way you'll end up keeping the transferred player in.

              1. Ross From Friends
                  3 months, 3 days ago

                  Transfer will be cancelled once you FH in the same GW you made the transfer in

                        The worst of part of my FH plan is getting Salah back in GW33 😆

                    Post your bad gameweek scores here.

                    Had a complete failure of a gw. 10 players. Double pool def (since five weeks back) and Salah, no Mane. Hazard. Wilson. All failed. Anderson only return.

                    On 24 -8. 16 points. Goodbye top 40k, which I was in before this.

                        Blank central for my team....with the exception of Anderson and McNeil! Funny how they were probably the only two I wasn't happy with going into the weekend.

                        Just shows that sometimes it pays to deal early, for example. I would have had King instead of Wilson if I'd set my team up a week prior

                        Thinking of dumping Robbo for DLuiz/Shaw/Lindelof in case they rise. Will be making the transfer for one of the three anyways.

                          I had a decent team on paper. Had 11 playing on a -4.

                          I lost my H2H to a dead team with 3 players and Salah(c)

                          If you think about what it feels like for a casual who wouldnt know about all the extra information out there on sites like this, twitter etc, its a big joke how FPL handles the double game weeks. We are not even one game week away and theres still no indication in the official game that there will suddenly pop up ~6 extra games.

                          Could do with a few ideas thrown at me for my next FT. I have £1m itb, and I’m seeing Salah, Hazard and Button as my biggest issues. What would you advise with this lot?

                          If I ya the free hit now can I chop and change as many times as I want before the deadline passes?

                          Feeling like my decision to free hit this gwk could well pay off !

                          Stupid question (perhaps)...

                          I'm free hitting this week, and have 1 FT. Will that FT roll over to 33, giving me 2 FTs? Or should I use it with 33 in mind before free hitting this week

                          Spent weeks planning for GW31, had 11 players with a -4...and still dropping 10k places to 29k *insert angry face here*

                            It doesn't matter.
                            You will always only have 1ft in 33 and your team will always revert back to what your team was at end of 31, regardless of when you played your fh.

                          GW 32 Free hitters....is now the time to press the button, or is it best to wait until after the international break?

                            Technically it is probably 0.01% better to press it later, but the risk of me forgetting to press it is probably 0.05%, so I've just pressed it.

                              Lol, you sound like me. Probably a good case for me to do the same. Cheers
