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.

      This is tough.

      A) I don't like KWP rotation threat but Kane & Mane look good.
      B) Looks great & Salah has set pieces
      C) Looks great & VVD has more goal threat than AWB

  3. Chaps Before Baps

    Which looks better? Cheers

    A) Mount & Barnes + 0.5m
    B) Cantwell & Rashford

    1. Chaps Before Baps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I'm leaning towards A because the price points allow for easier sideways moves.

      1. aotp009
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        I would get Martial if you can instead of Rashford .. not a big fan of Barnes, so I would say B if you can't fit Martial.

      on Nicolas Pepe...
      The most important thing is, like a person, to help him and his family to feel comfortable here. Now he is three weeks into working here with us. He didn't do the pre-season here but he’s progressively feeling better. For example, in the first match, he played 15 minutes in Newcastle, then he played 45 minutes against Burnley. I think his individual performances are progressively getting better. For Saturday, he is maybe ready to have more minutes. I am going to decide tomorrow, but really his progress has been positive and has been good for the team and for him. The most important piece of the adaptation is to help him to feel easy and be comfortable with us.

      1. Marknlard
        • 10 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Nicely put.

        Got a free transfer burning my pocket. Must be the first season in years where I haven't had at least one price dropper by now. Dunno who to shift.

    2. FPL Ultras

  12. Twisted melons

    With Mendy back in training is this the end for Zinchenko, or is he still safe for the moment?

    1. PAL
      • 3 Years

      Safe (at least) until October.

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Isnt Angelino likely to get one start in the LONG run of easy fixtures to come? I think he might.

        Also, Cancelo is capable of playing on the left if Pep wants him too

        Still Zinchenko first choice LB rn of course but...

      I have been listening about Mendy back in training for months. Come on the guy is a good player but he is even more fragile than Sturrige and Willshere combined

    Thought I was set but another idea has come into my head...

    A) Rashford Mane (have Martial)
    B) Barnes Salah + 1m ITB

    Thoughts? Thanks!

        • 3 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Care to tell me why?

        Having Ceballos is better than having City def?

        Was really impressed with Ceballos vs Burnley BUT Emery is a wnker. He could ruin him for us.

    2. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      B. Ceballos better option than Vanteella and Dendo combined.

      Why Awb over Maguire or Shaw?

      Nah, but probably the right thing.

      i would, i dont care how much the players cost - i play who i think has more chance at points

        • 4 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        Hmmm I am slightly debating it but no doubt I won’t. He does have an aerial threat as well. Interesting to see that there are others out there that would ponder it at least

    Advice appreciated. I’ve made 3 transfers and taken a -4 this week to get this team. Already contemplating a -8 next week to get in KDB (Robertson, dendoncker and jota out). Should I just do it this week and wildcard and hope I’m sorted for a few weeks?!

    Couple of quick questions

    1) Start Heaton (EVE) or Pope (wol)
    2) Start Dendocker (BUR) or King (MCI)
    3) Perez or Lanzini (-4)?

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Heaton Dendoncker

      Lanzini IN for a hit?? No effing way. Trossard or Mount maybe but not him

    2. Fantasizer
      • 2 Years

      Heaton,.King
      City conceded 2 from 2 attempts and king is on set pieces too

        He is on set pieces, so probably likely to get better returns in my eyes. Especially with their fixtures at the mo.

  25. DIMITRIS
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Am I crazy to go -4 for this maverick move? : Fraser and Wilson OUT Siggy and Abraham IN.
    Now hear me out:
    Everton will at some point of their nice fixture streak start to click and one of their assets will be sought certanly. If FPL history has though us one thing, it is that when healthy and playing, Siggy is a FPL gem, who will deliver at some point. I wanted to have him from the start, but I've opted for Fraser just because of his first two fixtures, but now, before Man City, I just had to get rid of him.
    With Abraham I gambled, because I really thing he will be given the chance to prove himself, and with 21 years of age coming out of Chelsea's youth academy in the year of a transfer-ban, it's logical to assume that he'll start the games instead of aging and never really proven PL striker Giroud.
    And if it doesn't work out for the next three games (Norwich, Sheffield, Wolwes) there's always a safe option in Pukki, who's cheaper and who will by that time pass his difficult fixtures (CHE, WHU, MAN C).

    What do you think?

    2. Fantasizer

      27 days, 7 hours ago

      i read it 😀
      i was also considering abraham but chelsea is in transition and the settled eleven is never coming anytime soon..plus he is likely to get subbed off for giroud even if he starts
      sigurdsson i agreee

    Was planning on bringing Son in this week and even giving him the armband. However I'm reading several articles stating that he will likely start on the bench. This to me seems utterly absurd. Son is their second best player behind Kane by a million miles and the reason he has been absent so far is not because of an injury. If it was the case that he has been recovering from injury I could understand him being on the bench first game back to ease him in but he hasn't been injured, he's simply been suspended. I'm assuming he has played pre-season and is fully fit and ready so why would he not be straight back into the team?

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      I think he will start BUT wouldnt be shocked if he is benched.

      Lamela and Moura have been decent so far. Son is better of course but...

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      He starts for me but I’m still hesitating to give him the armband

    3. Stoneleigh
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      There’s competition from players who seem to be in form (and scoring). Newcastle isn’t a tough game and so would be a completely understandable move to bench him and being him on for a few minutes second half. I think he’s a good pick for the short-term future but would be madness (if a huge differential) to give him the armband this GW.

    4. Iggy pop
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      its very rare a player gets thrown straight into the first team after missing several games, especially when they have several adequate replacements

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        He has only missed 2 games which has also been through suspension and not injury. Kane always comes straight back into the team after a long term injury, champions League final being an example and I would argue that Son is just as an important player to Spurs as Kane is. Will listen closely to the Poch presser to see if he gives anything concrete away but it's likely I will have to leave Son out for now and go a different way because of the doubt.

    5. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      Ive been mulling this over as my main issue all week and the majority of posts seem to point to him coming off the bench. I tend to agree with you though Gooberman but as WR says the armband is quiteanother thing.

  28. Kevin de Blanke
    • 3 Years
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    Am I crazy to go Mané instead of de Bruyne ?

    I know what de Bruyne brings to the table, but Mané has a higher ceiling

    If Gunners defence is actually better, I might be wrong about that move, but I still see them as a green fixture for Liverpool

    Your thoughts ?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      for captaincy ?

      1. Kevin de Blanke
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 7 hours ago

        No as in a transfer in 🙂

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 7 hours ago

          it really depends. do you have any other pool/city ? if you have salah bring kdb definitely imo. if you have sterling then mane is the man. basically cover both teams

          1. Kevin de Blanke
            • 3 Years
            27 days, 7 hours ago

            thanks, I actually have both Salah and Sterling which is why I'm torn between the two 😛

            I might have to flip a coin then...

    2. Klein
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 6 hours ago

      Think in pairs.
      Mane + who
      Kdb + who

    3. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 6 hours ago

      both very very good options, kdb will tick along all season home or away, Mane more explosive especially at home

  29. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 7 hours ago

    VVD + Perez -> AWB + Martial (-8) ?

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      nop

    2. theswallow1965
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      No way, VVD will be better than AWB over the season so you are taking a -8 just to get Martial, who can be streaky. Your team, your call.

    3. Twisted melons
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 7 hours ago

      I've done that for -4 but zinchenko and martial, I think -8 too much.

    4. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 6 hours ago

      no, I've got martial but will happily drop him like a hot stone for KDB
