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.

      Have you tried looking at the price list?

        I have, I need someone to drop in price. 0.1m off the team I really want

          What is your perfect team?

            It involves a kane aguero, rashford front line

      You have an IB time to create 50K teams and start selling those players

      1. Becks
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Or will new teams created be a transfer in?

      2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        good point, the market seems to have slowed down though?

  2. FPL_WILDCARD

    1 month, 2 days ago

    Trying to put together a slightly different FH team (but not leave myself too exposed) to try catch my ML leader, come up with this as a 1st draft:

    Foster
    Lindelöf, AWB, Dunk
    Sterling, Hazard, Alli, B.Silva, JWP
    Aguero(c), Lukaku

    Subs: Valery, Boly, Crouch

    Any major suggestions/obvious tweaks?

    1. speedyboyzz - RoboKlopp
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Chelsea fixtures too good to not have a defender.

    2. Yank Revolution
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Think Id still want one Che D in there....

      Alli seems to be a reach.

      Bernardo's great in rl, not so much in Fantasy (but ok) -- why not a City D/GK instead?

      Dunno bout Foster

      1. FPL_WILDCARD
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Could switch round Foster, Lindelöf and Alli to Ederson, Rudiger and Deulofeu for the time being?

        1. FPL_WILDCARD
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Whoops mean Silva out not Alli.

          Fancy a Spurs attacking asset in the new home stadium

          1. Yank Revolution
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Hmmmm....Ed, Rudi, Deu is better I think.

            Id monitor Spurs (plus, their other game is a difficult one!)

  3. Lukakwho
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    If I have no free hit is it bad to not plan for the blank and bring in Chelsea assets or is it better to go for broke and get in Aguero and Bilva?

    1. Dakes.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      bringing in chelsea assets does mean you're planning for the blank... am i misunderstanding you?

      I'd do a mix tbh. get one of kun/sterling, get some chelsea

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I’ve done this, I have no free hit and have Azpilicueta/Hazard and Sterling..

  4. Syd.
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Spurs v a nervous Liverpool team and the 1st game in their new stadium

    Could be a differential if people do avoid them

    1. Amey
        1 month, 2 days ago

        It's @ Anfield

        1. Syd.
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I was also referring to the game against CP

          1. Amey
              1 month, 2 days ago

              My bad
              Good option. But kane too expensive 😮

        Oh bugger it. Gonna use FH tonight.

        I need to get sterling and Kun back in so YOLO

        1. Becks
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Neither rising?

          I'm doing it for the fun of it. Fixture changes are formalities (I hope)

      • PascalCygan
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        At the risk of repeating others earlier today... Thinking of activating the Free Hit tonight to guard against price drops. Good idea?

        There’s no real danger of these doubles not happening, is there?

        Cheers

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Does not look like there will be much movement so I am waiting on fixtures

        2. bialk
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Sterling is going up, Salah is dropping tonight.

          1. PascalCygan
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Salah to Sterling is a move I’ll be doing. Maybe just do it as the FT for the week and then activate FH later?

          2. Sweetboi
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Sterling definitely not going up tonight. Salah may drop.

      • arkom

        De Gea
        Luiz - Azpi - PVA
        Sterling - Bilva - Hazard - Pogba - Mili
        Aguero - Jimmy

        0,5£ ITB

        3 City
        3 Che
        2 ManU
        2 Palace
        1 Wolves

        Thoughts? Changes?

        1. Ivor Mac
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Don't like the Jimenez pick. Wolves drew Watford in the cup. He is probably getting rested for sure v Man U. Don't like the Milli pick either. Your basically relying on penalties. I bring in Rashford and Deufeolu

            1. The 5% Team
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Deulofeu might be rested as well then

              • arkom
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I wouldn't be so sure that Jimmy will be rotated.. Maybe Wolves MVP right now..

              1 month, 2 days ago

              Yip they are showing 1 game every week

              Don't think the new broadcaster is getting many viewers since it can only be got on line

            Had 34(-4) with 11 players and TC.
            Guy in mini league got 34 with only 3 players including cap mane.
            Gotta laugh sometimes

                1 month, 2 days ago

                I'm laughing @ my team every other gw 😀
                Ridiculous tbh

                Guy in mu ML got 62 & has Richy laughing at him on the bench 🙁

                That Mane rubbish on Sat morning cost me a huge leap!

                  That mane rumour has cost a lot of us big time, very harsh indeed.

              • Super Saints
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                That is so annoying, similar situation for me in my ML, planned really well for bgw31, ended up with 29 points!

            2. FlashG
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              FH team (I think).

              Foster
              Luiz, Shaw, Laporte
              Sterling, Haz, Pog, Deulofe
              Kane, Agustin, Jimi

              Worried about Jimi rotation though if honest.

                Shaw on 9 yellows so perhaps Lindelöf- Assume you mean Aguero and not Austin!

              Salah: 8 points (goal and an assist) from last 8. Is he really with the price and arm band each week?

              1. dunas_dog

                No

                    1 month, 2 days ago

                    Obviously not. I think he is gone for most teams in gw 33 or 34.

                      it's weird...totally out of form now, and never seemed to have reached his last season's form this whole season....but still is the game's highest point scorer

                        Haven't checked but wonder if thats due to other players not doing well in general?

                    When will FPL confirm extra games for GW32?
                    Always some kick to see 2 games under the players, not to mention full squad, agree?

                        Liverpool plays higher defensive line, Palace not watertight exactly.

                        How about Son instead of Higuain (352 instead of 343) ?????

                              Alli will dissapoint you.

                                    Thoughts on this -4 team and maybe a TC? Or does it need a FH?

                                    Kepas 6th save was added retrospectively for a save from Coleman in the 76th minute. Coleman was miles offside and was flagged offside. Ridiculous

                                    I made a big blunder getting Higuain in for Jimenez 2 weeks ago instead of Vardy. Question do i keep Higuain for the likely dgw against Cardiff and Brighton or ship him? Chelsea look rubbish.

                                        No. FH already used. No WC either. Only TC and BB remaining.

                                      Who knows. All I can tell you, as a Chelsea fan, is that he is unlikely to complete the full 90 minutes in either of those matches.

                                      I slowly swapped hazard back in, and just shipped Higuain today..

                                  6. That Was Easy!

                                    Took a (-12), thankfully brought in Mane so probably netted 4/5 points.

                                    No FH going into 32, so I’m thinking Salah, VVD, Higuain > Sterling, Kun, Laporte for a (-8)

                                    Will get me 9 DGWers and 9/10 in BGW33, thoughts? Don’t have much value tied in VVD and will potentially mean no Salah for the home stretch.

                                        Didn’t see anyone mention why Maddison took his shirt off. No wonder my season is dire when people are picking out details like that.

                                                    Yep. There are some decent posters on here, but generally the quality is much worse than when I last played (2015/16).

                                                    There was a site back then, maybe totalfpl or something. It was cancerous. I think FFS is becoming something like that was.

                                                      And that’s an awful time to use the C word, apologies.

                                                      I was being polite, it's much worse which is a shame as available data and analysis is better. Totalfpl - yep that was the chat box from memory. Final season for me here I think, at least for FPL (may still chat about Eliteserien if that's still sandboxed away). Cancerous is maybe unfortunate timing, but it's ok to refer to an evolving affliction with approriate terminology.

                                        Is Guaita likely nailed for both CPL games, or is he a significant rotation risk?
