Fixtures

Which teams have the best and worst upcoming fixtures?

Our first “frisk” of the Premier League fixture list since pre-season is here ahead of Gameweek 3.

In this semi-regular 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 where appropriate.

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

Manchester City

Next six: bou | BHA | nor | WAT | eve | WOL
And then: cry | AVL | SOU

As if we needed any more incentive to invest in the league champions’ Fantasy assets, Manchester City are the only club not to face a ‘big six’ side in the next half-dozen Gameweeks.

The favourable run actually goes on beyond this point, with the Gameweek 12 trip to Anfield bringing to an end their appealing sequence of matches – although many of us will consider City players fixture-proof anyway.

Only two of the sides Pep Guardiola’s troops face in the next nine Gameweeks finished in the top half of the Premier League last season.

The Citizens meet newly promoted Norwich City and Aston Villa between now and the beginning of November.

In the corresponding fixtures against Bournemouth, Brighton, Watford, Everton, Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton last season, City won all seven and scored 20 goals in doing so, conceding just three at the other end.

Raheem Sterling (£12.2m) banked 16 attacking returns (half of his total number) against these clubs home and away in 2018/19.

Sergio Aguero (£12.0m), by contrast, only recorded four goals and three assists in these fixtures.

Three of City’s next four opponents have yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

West Ham United

Next six: wat | NOR | avl | MUN | bou | CRY
And then: eve | SHU | NEW | bur

As it did last season, West Ham’s defence is giving us cause for concern heading into one of the best fixture runs in the division.

The Hammers kept just seven clean sheets in 2018/19 (only relegated Fulham and Huddersfield registered fewer) and were in the bottom five for attempts on goal, shots in the box and big chances conceded.

While Manchester City can humiliate any team in the division (as happened to the Hammers in Gameweek 1), Brighton’s dominance at the Amex last weekend and West Ham’s defensive fragility in pre-season suggests that not a lot has changed at the back.

Going forward there is more optimism, with the likes of Manuel Lanzini (£6.5m) and Sebastien Haller (£7.4m) having looked promising in the summer – even if we are yet to see the Hammers’ attacking assets fully click into gear in a competitive match.

Pre-empting a run of form is what Fantasy management is all about, of course, and West Ham’s next three matches in particular look perfect from an attacking perspective.

Watford, Norwich and Aston Villa have yet to keep a single clean sheet between them in 2019/20 and have shipped a combined 14 goals in their six league matches to date.

Norwich and Villa have already allowed 70 shots between them this campaign, with neither club having come up from the Championship with a particularly strong defensive record (even if there was a late-season improvement in Villa’s case).

Watford have conceded more big chances than any Premier League team this calendar year, meanwhile, and are without a league clean sheet in over six months.

West Ham won the corresponding fixture 4-1 on the final day of 2018/19.

The Canaries haven’t kept a clean sheet in eight competitive matches, meanwhile.

Looking further ahead, the Hammers meet only one ‘big six’ side – Manchester United – between now and Gameweek 12 and look set to be a recurring entry into these articles over the next two months.

Everton

Next six: avl | WOL | bou | SHU | MCI | bur
And then: WHU | bha

Everton were perhaps handed the best opening run of games in the division when the fixtures were released in June.

Aside from two matches against Manchester City and Spurs, Everton’s ticker is a sea of blue right up until Gameweek 15 – when Marco Silva’s side subsequently take on Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.

No other Premier League side has fewer meetings with last season’s top six (two) in the next dozen Gameweeks, which takes us up to the end of November.

Even the visit of Manchester City and Spurs may not be too much of a deterrent, with Everton having kept four clean sheets in home matches against the ‘big six’ last season.

The visit of Wolves, meanwhile, will follow immediately after Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have played the second leg of their UEFA Europa League play-off game against Torino.

The Toffees are the only club to have kept clean sheets in both of their 2019/20 matches so far and now have ten shut-outs in their last 13 league fixtures.

Goals haven’t been flowing at the other end ever since pre-season started but it might be worth keeping tabs on Moise Kean (£6.9m) as he is gradually introduced into the first-team set-up – the striker has looked sharp in cameo substitute appearances and may prove to be more of a goal threat than the limited Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.0m).

Aston Villa

Next six: EVE | cry | WHU | ars | BUR | nor
And then: BHA

With Villa conceding chances at an alarming rate and ongoing doubts over whether Wesley (£6.0m) can be an effective goal-getter up front, the Villans’ budget midfielders look the most enticing options for their forthcoming run of games.

Villa sit second in our Season Ticker from now until Gameweek 9 and are actually top for ‘attack’ over this period.

Fixtures against West Ham and Norwich are obvious draws for reasons mentioned above but even the trip to Arsenal, a daunting test on paper and Villa’s one meeting with a ‘big six’ club in the next two months, could prove fruitful from an attacking perspective: only four clubs have allowed more efforts on goal than the Gunners in 2019/20.

Everton and Palace’s struggle for goals will perhaps give hope to owners of Tom Heaton (£4.5m) et al, too, with Villa still awaiting their first clean sheet of 2019/20.

Tottenham Hotspur

Next six: NEW |ars | CRY | lei | SOU | bha
And then: WAT

Spurs’ fixture run is a rollercoaster ride over the coming months.

Their next seven home fixtures are all against sides who finished in the bottom half of the Premier League or were in the Championship last season.

The Lilywhites thus sit top of our Season Ticker for home fixtures between now and Gameweek 16.

Analysing away matches in the same period and Mauricio Pochettino’s side languish towards the bottom of our Season Ticker, with meetings against six of last year’s top ten plus a trip to a Brighton side that have impressed so far in 2019/20.

Matches at Arsenal and Leicester perhaps look off-putting but those two teams haven’t looked watertight at the back so far, with the Foxes being ripped apart by Chelsea in the first half at Stamford Bridge last weekend and riding their luck slightly against Wolves in Gameweek 1.

Only seven teams kept fewer clean sheets than Arsenal last season, meanwhile.

No FPL asset banked more attacking returns on the road than Harry Kane (£11.0m) in 2018/19, either.

At the other end of the pitch, Spurs could start to amass shut-outs of their own at home: Newcastle, Palace, Southampton and Watford have scored just two goals between them this season, one of which was gifted by Adrian (£4.5m).

Manchester United

Next six: CRY | sou | LEI | whu | ARS | new

United – who have conceded the joint-fewest number of big chances this season – also face Palace, Southampton and Newcastle in their next six games, giving the Red Devils the chance to build on their clean sheet against Chelsea.

Home matches against the Gunners and Liverpool in Gameweeks 7 and 9 are United’s only encounters with ‘big six’ clubs between now and December.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side actually sit top of our Season Ticker for ‘attack’ between now and Gameweek 14.

Also Consider

Chelsea (nor | SHU | wol | LIV | BHA | sou) are riding high in our Season Ticker but fixtures against Wolves and Liverpool immediately after the international break slightly dent their appeal – even if the Reds aren’t as watertight as they were in 2018/19.

The Blues themselves are fairly porous at the back and interest in their Fantasy assets may instead be focused on the likes of Mason Mount (£6.1m) and other forward-thinking players.

Certainly, Saturday’s match at Carrow Road could be a goal-fest based on the evidence we have seen from both clubs so far – Daniel Farke and Frank Lampard evidently favouring attack as the best form of defence.

Home matches against Sheffield United and Brighton also leap from the page but those two clubs have impressed in the opening two Gameweeks, conceding just two goals between them.

Only Manchester United and Wolves have allowed fewer big chances than Chris Wilder and Graham Potter’s troops, although a trip to Stamford Bridge will pose a real test of their defensive solidity.

Chelsea will feature more prominently in this article from the end of September onwards: the Blues face only Manchester City of the ‘big six’ between Gameweeks 7 to 15.

Burnley have a very favourable run from Gameweek 5 onwards but we will put the Clarets on ice for now, given that they face a double-header against Wolves and Liverpool before the fixture turn.

We will cover Sean Dyche’s side in detail in our next ‘frisk’ in the international break.

The Weak

Newcastle United

Next six: tot | WAT | liv | BHA | lei | MUN
And then: che

Fantasy managers will likely be giving Newcastle United a wide berth for the foreseeable future and not just because of their fixture run.

The Magpies may well struggle for goals this year (only two big chances created so far) and the defensive solidity of last season looks to be missing: 19 of the 23 shots they have faced this season were from inside their box.

To compound matters, Steve Bruce’s side sit bottom of our Season Ticker for the next six Gameweeks and beyond.

Having already faced Arsenal on the opening weekend, Newcastle face four other ‘big six’ clubs between now and Gameweek 9.

Leicester City also host the Magpies in this period.

Arsenal

Next six: liv | TOT | wat | AVL | mun | BOU

The lure of Dani Ceballos (£5.6m) is strong after his impressive debut showing against Burnley but there will be plenty of Fantasy managers biding their time on the budget midfielder given that the Gunners face Liverpool, Spurs and Manchester United in the next five Gameweeks.

Saying that, the Gunners scored seven goals in the three corresponding fixtures against those ‘big six’ clubs in 2018/19 and put five past Bournemouth at the Emirates.

No FPL forward score more goals (six) than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) in games against Liverpool, Spurs, Watford, Manchester United and Bournemouth last season (both home and away).

Leicester City

Next six: shu | BOU | mun | TOT | NEW | liv

Fantasy managers may be getting slightly twitchy about their Leicester assets after the first two Gameweeks, with some tricky matches on the horizon.

There are appealing home fixtures against Bournemouth and Newcastle within this run, although Sheffield United have impressed from a defensive perspective so far (16 clean sheets in their last 24 league games) and a trip to Bramall Lane is perhaps not as easy as it looks on paper.

It should be noted, of course, that 31 of Jamie Vardy‘s (£8.9m) 80 Premier League goals have come against ‘big six’ teams.

The schedule eases considerably after the trip to Anfield, with the Foxes only facing one ‘big six’ club from Gameweeks 9 to 17.

Also Consider

Southampton‘s (bha | MUN | shu | BOU | tot | CHE) next four fixtures don’t look too bad but their schedule worsens considerably thereafter, with the Saints facing seven teams that finished in the top half last season from Gameweeks 7-13.

Brighton and Hove Albion (SOU | mci | BUR | new | che | TOT) have a similar mixed run to Southampton, with three of the next four games appealing before encounters with Spurs and Chelsea.

John Lundstram (£4.1m) might be back on our benches soon, meanwhile, with five of Sheffield United‘s next seven fixtures (LEI | che | SOU | eve | LIV | wat | ARS) against teams that finished in the top half in 2018/19.

    I've had a reasonable start despite not having Sterling (have KDB, Kane, Salah) but am terrified this week... who do I get rid of? or do I get a big sofa and wildcard after the IB?

    1. Soonmixdin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 mins ago

      I just took a hit to go from Wilson & Salah > Pukki & Sterling

      Bandwagon boarded!! 🙂

    2. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 25 mins ago

      Same here, i did Salah -> Sterling with a FT.

      Im much more scared of Sterling (who will have a big captain %) than Salah over the next few games. Ideally id have both, but im not taking hits or wildcarding yet - way too early

      1. Soonmixdin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 mins ago

        I definitely won't be wildcarding but that Salah > Sterling transfer for a hit was just screaming at me when I compared their stats in the Members area. Plus with KdB looking like he's almost back to top form the two of them are arguably essential for the next 4-5 GWs in my humble opinion....

        1. KingOllie
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 18 mins ago

          I fully agree, i own KDB/Sterling and i think the two are gonna clean up.

          I wouldnt captain Salah in a single fixture ahead of Sterling until gwk7 either.

          I will probably swap Salah back in for Sterling in like gwk 12/13 when Citys run gets harder and theres more rotation

          1. ragonian
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 mins ago

            Thanks all – Salah, Fraser, Jota >>> Sterling, Pukki, Martial -4 🙂

    Took a -4 hit for this team, thoughts?

    Pickford
    Lundstram Coleman Maguire Robbo
    Dendoncker KdB Sterling(VC) Siggy
    Pukki Kane(C)

    OTB: Ryan, Greenwood, Dunk, Romeu

        Thanks man, what you got planned?

        1. After Supper Ghost Stories
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 22 mins ago

          Just done Perez and Wilson to get Martial and Pukki but want KDB too soon.

          1. Soonmixdin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 19 mins ago

            I think that's a good move, Perez not found his place and Pukki looking very good for the price!

            If KdB keeps up his current form could well repeat (or better) his performance of 2017/18.

    2. Dammed Utd

        Just got shot of him for Sterling, looked at his stats vs Raheem and not impressed.

            2 months, 17 mins ago

            You've got a valid point man! But Mane looked more dangerous for 1m less and I have a feeling that Arsenal could give them a proper game this weekend.

            1. Dammed Utd
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              I happy with Sterling Salah and Kane I had Perez but swap him out for Mount

      Going without a Liverpool attacker is pure madness...

      1. Soonmixdin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 13 mins ago

        Not really, when Man City fixtures are so much better and they are looking like being in such great form!

        Besides I'll probably draft in some Liverpool attackers once the fixtures swing in their favour and I'll hopefully have developed the team value to do so.

        1. luk46
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Well, Liverpool will be able to score in every single game, so Salah or Mane (if on wc) is a must. But its your decision and if everyone would play the same it would become boring. 🙂

          1. Soonmixdin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            You're saying you think City won't score in every single game?

  3. After Supper Ghost Stories

    Advice please.

    Play McGinn or Robertson?

    One will go on bench.

    Also got VVD and Pickford.

    ceballos coleman or mcginn for the next 6

    1. After Supper Ghost Stories
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 25 mins ago

      I like McGinn.

    2. Dammed Utd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 25 mins ago

      Robertson

    3. KingOllie

      ceballos is the real deal

  5. Obi Wan Elokobi
    • 8 Years

    When is Sakho due back. I was just wondering how long Kelly is a viable option?

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 24 mins ago

      Cahill is fit. Kelly wont play now

    2. Soonmixdin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 mins ago

      Why would anyone be wanting a Palace defender at the moment? I'm a supporter and none of the Palace squad are going anywhere near my FPL team on present form!!

  6. el polako
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 24 mins ago

    Any point getting Gundogan as the 3rd City player for incoming run of fixtures ?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 22 mins ago

      I would say definitely not.

    2. FF Dirtbag
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 mins ago

      bit of a waste

    3. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 mins ago

      Might actually prefer foden

    4. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 mins ago

      Midfield is where all the points are - I wouldn't punt on a player likely to sit out as many as he plays in that position.

    5. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 mins ago

      Thats conclusive, just being greedy I guess

  7. Gunner Boy
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 24 mins ago

    Which is better?

    A- King > Pukki (-4). Already playing Cantwell.

    B- Play Dendoncker and bench King.

    C- Play King

    1. Stef rocks

      C

  8. zizoo10

    Start
    A) King
    B) Lundstram

    1. Stef rocks
      • 2 Years

      Very close - btw i have both on bench lol

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 mins ago

      No way to start both?

  9. Kimmich
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 24 mins ago

    Pope
    Wan Bissaka - Mina - Soyuncu
    Sterling - Mane - KdB - Martial - Mount
    Pukki - Firmino

    McGovern - Dunk - Lundstram - Wickham

    Concern is no Kane but I’m keeping KdB as a potential switch to Son if he hits form. Firmino a little bit of a short term punt with his good record vs Arsenal. Looking at Lacazette in a few weeks potentially.

    1. aotp009
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Great team in my opinion, should score plenty on the weekend. I wouldn't be too concerned about Kane with the midfield you have. There is plenty of cover.

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 22 mins ago

      Stick. Should have had two assists in last game - Richarlison won't keep missing. Kean will draw penalties too.

    RMWCT

    Could this backline work or would you sacrifice one of the big hitters and upgrade the defence ?

    Pope Button
    Zinchenko KPW AWB Kelly Lundstrum
    Sterling Salah KDB Martial Cantwell
    Kane Pukki Wickham

    1. Gazza2000
      • 7 Years

      Sorry, Mane instead of Salah

    2. Obi Wan Elokobi

      It’s fine. Stronger than mine.

      1. Gazza2000

      Zinch and KWP not nailed, so a massive no from me. I have both but im not on wc

      1. Gazza2000
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 mins ago

        Worried about this as well, thoughts on KPW and Kelly to Soyu and Dunk ?

    4. Kimmich
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 mins ago

      Could work, can always do Salah to Mane in a few weeks if it’s not working and invest another mil.

      1. Kimmich
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 mins ago

        Ah just seen it’s Mane you have, never mind.

        1. Pinky and De Bruyne
          • 7 Years

          AWB over Zinc ?

          1. Gazza2000
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 13 mins ago

            Got AWB, could get Coleman instead of Zinch but can do that later on when Mendy is back

    5. FF Dirtbag
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 19 mins ago

      In my eyes, Zinch, KPW and Kelly are gonna cause you problems at some point with rotation or what not... I would probably sacrifice KPW for a 4.5 and upgrade Kelly

      1. Gazza2000
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 mins ago

              Always nice to have the Cricket on. I can watch Cricket / Golf while I work. Only two sports that are mellow enough for web dev. World Cup was superb - as i love the 50 over format. Been to a few 1 day'ers this year.

      Kane has a decent record in North London derbies and then has his favourite opposition in GW 6 away to Leicester (13 goals in 8 games against them)

        That Kane stat surely can't be right, 13 goals in 8 games against Leicester? I know he hit four past them but I can't remember too many more braces?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          11 goals in 7 starts in the Premier League for Spurs (also, got a hat trick against them in a 4-3 win at WHL in 14/15)
          1 goal and 1 assist in one start in the Championship for Milwall
          1 goal in the FA cup for Spurs against Leicester

            Oh so it's 13 goals in 8 starts against them, plus a few sub appearances. I get it now, impressive record.

      No way. Auba's got two in two. Arguably perfect returns.

    3. yakirh
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 13 mins ago

      Kane will outscore him this week, but not so sure about the future.
      Auba is a big reason I got Kane in instead of KDB, could always switch to Auba, and they have amazing fixtures coming up.

    AWB & Cantwell

    Or

    McGinn & 4.5 defence ?

    1. Gazza2000

      A

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      2 months, 9 mins ago

      If you have 0.1m extra I would go Dunk 4.6 and McGinn.

      Both are nailed too.

      Only reason is that UTD assets bit hyped up at the moment.

      Both are nailed too.

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years

      Lundstram must be the favourite. Haller needs to score just to break even.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is anyone going the lone striker route? I just dont fancy any of the big hitters up front value wise and thinking of going with Pukki and a heavy midfield.

    Always have the WC later on when big hitters are firing. Thoughts?

    I love this site- but the lemming mentality can lead to questionable decisions. For instance ;
    -Everyone ditching Salah for Mane( Mo has and can outperform him, and I think Mane is overpriced relative to him)
    - Must have AWB; His attacking stats are terrible
    - Must ditch Wilson . He has proven to be a season long scorer in previous years
    The list goes on. All these moves may be great, but its a little disconcerting to see so many teams building based upon group think.

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent

      *gets popcorn*

    2. luk46
      • 1 Year
      2 months ago

      Agreed, just two games played... Keeping Wilson myself and Mane for Salah only and then just maybe on a wc anyway.

    3. Irbox ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Agree to an extent, I’ve always loved to head down the differential path. Salah will always be the king and I would never for a second consider Mane over him. AWB is an interesting one, Man U have one of the best xGc in the league and looking quite solid, he is a bonus magnet and also the ownership is a bit concerning. No problem with people ditching Bournemouth

    4. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      - Salah vs. Mane - Do not agree.Stats looking pretty much the same. Also TAA found Mane end of last season very well with the crosses, expecting the same and Salah is not part of that routine. Salah owner.

      -AWB: Agree and disagree. Going more forward than in CRY but delivery is bad. However he is a BAPS monster and MUN seems to be stable at back this season. 5.5 is relatively cheap even without assists (BAPS + CS). Non-AWB owner.

      - Wilson. Agree that he might get equal PPM as last year and I might regret in upcoming weeks that I transferred him out (probably blank vs MCI but after that is sofa time). Wilson non-Owner.

      I seem to be the only one that prefers Maguire to AWB. Maguire's minutes per baseline BPS is not far behind AWB's and he's going to score a couple goals as he does every season.
