Frisking the Fixtures

Which teams have the best and worst upcoming fixtures?

With the international break over, we take our regular “frisk” of the Premier League fixture list ahead of Gameweek 9.

In this feature, we assess the top-flight clubs with the strongest and weakest runs of league matches over the coming weeks.

Although our primary focus will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead, we will scrutinise the long-term fixtures beyond that point where relevant.

We’ll be using our Season Ticker to help – Members using this tool can sort by difficulty and teams that rotate well, filter home and away fixtures, and separate attack and defence.

THE STRONG

Leicester City

Next six: BUR | sou | cry | ARS | bha | EVE

Bottom of our Season Ticker for the first eight Gameweeks of 2019/20 yet still sitting fourth in the league after it, Leicester City’s fixture schedule is about to improve dramatically.

Between Gameweeks 9 and 17, the Foxes meet only one of the ‘big six’ – and that is a home fixture against an Arsenal side not renowned for their defensive aptitude.

Leicester’s defence has been one of the stand-out performers from an underlying stats perspective and in their next seven matches, they face five of the seven teams who are currently scoring at a rate of one goal per game or under.

Burnley and Palace, two of their next three opponents, are in the bottom four for big chances created, too.

Those two clubs may be tougher nuts to crack from a defensive perspective but Southampton, Arsenal and Watford, who are all to come between now and Gameweek 15, are in the bottom six for shots on target conceded.

Arsenal

Next six: shu | CRY | WOL | lei | SOU | nor

Arsenal have a similar run to Leicester from now until December.

From Gameweeks 9 to 16, Unai Emery’s side face the two newly promoted clubs, three of last season’s bottom ten and no ‘big six’ clubs.

The Gunners are the only Premier League side not to face one of last season’s top half-dozen teams in the next six Gameweeks and indeed the visit of Manchester City in mid-December is their next encounter with one of these clubs.

With Arsenal’s defence never fully convincing, Fantasy managers may well be focusing more on the Gunners’ attacking assets for this upcoming run – although their next four opponents sit in the bottom eight for attempts on target this season.

From an attacking perspective, a trip to the King Power Stadium won’t be easy, with Leicester having the third-best expected goals conceded (xGC) total of 2019/20 so far.

Sheffield United, Leicester and Crystal Palace are indeed among the five meanest defences in terms of goals conceded this season.

Gameweeks 13-16 look more enticing from an attacking point of view, with Southampton, Norwich and West Ham among the six teams who have conceded the most big chances.

No FPL forward scored more goals than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) against non-big six sides in 2018/19 (19 in 26 games).

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Next six: SOU | new | ars | AVL | bou | SHU

Wolves sit second-top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 9-18 and their recent upturn in form is coinciding nicely with the fixture swing after the international break.

Arsenal are the only ‘big six’ club that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side face between now and mid-December.

After their early-season defensive struggles, no opposition player has scored against Wolves in the last three Gameweeks.

The problem remains Europa League-led rotation, of course, with Conor Coady (£5.0m), Raul Jimenez (£7.1m) and Willy Boly (£5.0m) the only outfielders to avoid a benching so far.

Purely from a fixture perspective, Wolves face five of the seven teams who have allowed the most big chances in Gameweeks 9-15.

At the other end of the pitch, Southampton and Newcastle are two of the four worst teams for goal conversion – although trips to Arsenal and Bournemouth will be sterner tests.

Chelsea

Next six: NEW | bur | wat | CRY | mci | WHU

Chelsea avoid not only the other big six sides over the next four Gameweeks, they also dodge any other club that finished in the top half of the Premier League table last season.

A daunting trip to the Etihad in Gameweek 13 is a cloud on the horizon but there are still appealing home fixtures against West Ham, Aston Villa and Bournemouth before we get to the busy festive period.

The games at Stamford Bridge are particularly enticing as the Blues don’t meet any of last season’s top six clubs in west London until late-January.

Chelsea’s backline still have much to prove but the next four matches look attractive from a defensive perspective, with Newcastle, Burnley, Watford and Palace in the bottom eight for big chances created.

From an attacking perspective, Watford and West Ham are two of the three worst teams for big chances conceded.

On the flip side, Burnley and Palace are among the five best clubs for that statistic.

Manchester City’s ongoing defensive woes will at least give owners of Mason Mount (£6.8m) et al more hope of attacking returns than a visit to the Etihad would have last season.

Manchester United

Next six: LIV| nor | bou | BHA | shu | AVL

A fixture swing for Manchester United beckons after the visit of Liverpool in Gameweek 9, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are hardly making a convincing case to us Fantasy managers at present.

The Red Devils sit top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 10-14, taking on five clubs who are currently ranked tenth or below.

The two remaining teams without a Premier League clean sheet to their names this season immediately follow Jurgen Klopp’s side, which should offer hope to the brave souls among us who are backing United’s misfiring attacking assets.

Solskjaer’s troops have been better from a defensive perspective this season and no club has a lower xGC total after eight Gameweeks of 2019/20.

In Bournemouth, Sheffield United and Aston Villa, United are taking on three teams who rank in the bottom six for shots in the box.

Bournemouth

Next six: NOR | wat | MUN | new | WOL | tot

Any fixture run that begins with Norwich and Watford automatically catches the eye, even if the Cherries’ matches beyond that are mixed.

The Canaries and the Hornets have conceded 41 goals and kept just one clean sheet between them, which bodes well for Callum Wilson (£7.9m) and co.

An out-of-sorts Manchester United are there for the taking, too, although the Red Devils are the meanest defence when it comes to expected goals conceded.

A trip to Spurs needn’t hold much fear either, with the Lilywhites having conceded more shots on target than all other clubs bar Norwich.

Everton

Next six: WHU | bha | TOT | sou | NOR | lei

Everton have been staples of this article this season but their excellent run comes to a juddering halt in Gameweek 14, with trips to Leicester, Liverpool and Manchester United interspersed with home matches against Chelsea and Arsenal.

Before that, though, the out-of-sorts Toffees enjoy home matches against the side who have allowed the most big chances (West Ham) and the two teams who allowed the most shots on target (Spurs and Norwich) in 2019/20.

Only the Canaries and Watford have shipped more goals than Southampton, meanwhile.

Also Consider

We’d be foolish to overlook Manchester City’s (cry | AVL | SOU | liv | CHE | new) next three fixtures, even if the trip to Anfield and the visit of Chelsea beyond that are not quite so appealing.

Saturday’s match against Palace is not so straightforward, either, given that the Eagles have only conceded one goal at Selhurst Park all season.

The double-header against Villa and Southampton at the Etihad is enticing, though: those two clubs are among the seven worst teams for big chances conceded this season.

West Ham (eve | SHU | NEW | bur | TOT| che) have their own appealing double-header coming up and a trip to an out-of-sorts Everton before that, three games that ought to offer clean sheet possibilities: the Toffees, Sheffield United and Newcastle are in the bottom four for goals scored this season.

Burnley’s (lei | CHE | shu | WHU | wat | CRY) four fixtures in Gameweek 11-14 are also similarly appealing from a defensive perspective, with all four opponents in the bottom half for big chances created.

We can’t ignore Tottenham Hotspur‘s (WAT | liv | eve | SHU | whu | BOU) ongoing excellent home fixtures, with the Lilywhites’ next four in north London all against teams that finished outside of the top ten last season.

A double-header on Merseyside is a little off-putting, though, along with a trip to an improving West Ham United side.

The Weak

Crystal Palace

Next six: MCI | ars | LEI | che | LIV | bur

It’s hard to imagine a tougher run than the one Crystal Palace have got coming up, with the Eagles now facing six of the top current seven in the top flight – the other team, of course, are Roy Hodgson’s troops themselves.

Palace are, unsurprisingly, rock-bottom of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 9-14.

The Eagles have been pretty strong from a defensive perspective but in Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea they will face the three Premier League clubs who have scored the most goals this season.

Only Newcastle have carved out fewer big chances than the Eagles and any little interest we have in their attacking assets is likely to be put on ice until after this run.

All bar Arsenal of their next six opponents are among the half-dozen clubs with the meanest defences, based on expected goals conceded.

Budget assets such as Martin Kelly (£4.1m) and Jordan Ayew (£5.1m) look likely to be spending a lot of time on our benches in October and November, then.

Aston Villa

Next six: BHA | mci | LIV | wol | NEW | mun

Villa have two appealing home fixtures against Brighton and Newcastle in the next six Gameweeks but aside from that, there are stiff tests for Dean Smith’s outfit.

Trips to City, an in-form Wolves and Manchester United look tough for Villa’s attacking assets, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s misfiring side nevertheless still fairly solid at the back.

Liverpool, who have conceded the fewest goals this season, visit Villa Park in Gameweek 11.

Villa will at least take solace from the fact they have scored against both north London clubs already this season.

Southampton

Next six:  wol | LEI | mci | EVE | ars | WAT

Southampton’s forthcoming fixture run is perhaps not quite as bad as Palace’s but they face teams that finished in the top half last season in each of the next five Gameweeks.

Away matches at Manchester City and Arsenal look particularly unappealing and their defence is surely a no-go zone until the fixture swing in Gameweek 14.

A fixture against Wolves might have looked appealing a few weeks ago but Nuno Espirito’s Santo have shown an upturn in form and have conceded just one goal in the last three Gameweeks – an own-goal, at that.

Only Liverpool have conceded fewer goals than Leicester, meanwhile.

Even without the fixtures, the Saints’ patchy form and porous defence (only Watford and Norwich have shipped more) are off-putting factors at present.

Sheffield United

Next six: ARS | whu | BUR| tot | MUN | wol

John Lundstram (£4.5m) may find himself on bench duty quite a bit over the coming weeks, with Sheffield United’s fixtures a mixed bag at best.

The Blades will be hoping that Spurs and Manchester United are still in a slump by the time we reach mid-November, while keeping their fingers crossed that Wolves and Burnley’s decent form has taken a turn for the worse.

Owners of Lundstram may consider the fixtures against Burnley, Spurs and Manchester United at a push, all of whom are in the bottom eight for big chances created.

Also Consider

Once again we have to highlight the fact that Liverpool‘s fixture run (mun | TOT | avl | MCI | cry | bha) is far from ideal for those of us with assets from Jurgen Klopp’s side.

While the schedule from Gameweeks 9-12 (and even Palace away in Gameweek 13) may be enough for us to swerve a triple-up, there will be many FPL bosses willing to stick with the likes of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) through the choppy waters ahead.

Klopp’s troops are, let’s remember, on a 17-match winning run in the Premier League.

The Reds face three big six clubs between now and the November international break but it could be argued that this is the best time to play United, Spurs and City, with all three sides having issues either going forward or at the back.

      Save ft, gtg

  2. Mr. Wizard
    • 8 Years

    Worth hitting WC for this?! Or stick?

    Original:
    0.6 ITB
    Pope (Heaton)
    Trent Ota Soy (Lund, Kelly)
    Sterling Salah Kdb Mount Cantwell
    Vardy Abraham (c) (Greenwood)

    New team:
    1.1m ITB
    Pope (MCGOVERN*)
    Trent Ota Soy (Lund, Kelly)
    Sterling MANE* Kdb Mount (Cantwell)
    WILSON Abraham (c) KING

    This allows me to bench Cantwell and enough funds to bring back in Vardy/Salah if/when need be... really appreciate thoughts

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      I wouldn’t, you may have more pressing issues before christmas

    2. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Can't see that being worth it, and certainly not a particularly good WC team

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      I like the new team better mate.

      1. Mr. Wizard
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Thank you buddy. I feel I should play WC now to benefit from price rises/form and not leave too late!

  3. Slitherene
    • 1 Year
    25 days, 13 hours ago

    Who will score more this GW?

    A) Pukki + Vardy + 4 points
    B) Maddison + Abraham

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      A

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Depends on captaincy.

      1. Slitherene
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 13 hours ago

        (C).Wilson

        1. TorresMagic™

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          25 days, 13 hours ago

          A I guess. B if you'd captain Abraham and think he does well.

    3. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Hmm, close I reckon. Abraham likely to beat Vardy. Would you captain any?

      1. Slitherene
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 13 hours ago

        None

    4. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Think i’d have to say B, but not much in it i suppose.

    5. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Hard to say. My money would be on B if pushed.

  4. Chasing Waves
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    25 days, 13 hours ago

    Anything worth taking a hit for?

    Pope
    TAA Ota Soy
    Mahrez Yarmo Siggy Sterling Mount
    Tammy(c) Bam

    Norris Lundy Pieters Greenwood

    Already did Mount in this week, and fell into the Mahrez trap last week. Would really love some feedback all!

    1. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      No hit, needs a bit of surgery over the next couple though

  5. ZICO SENNA
    • 8 Years
    25 days, 13 hours ago

    Who would you captain out of these this GW?

    A) KDB
    B) Sterling
    C) Vardy
    D) Auba
    E) Abraham
    F) Salah

    Thanks gents.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 13 hours ago

        Haha! It would certainly save me a transfer I guess.

    3. donlobatto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Sterling or Abraham for me

      Possibly Tammy

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 13 hours ago

        Cheers bud, Tammy looking a favourite

    4. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Surely you don't have all of those?

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 13 hours ago

        I have all of them apart from KDB, just can’t stand Sterling so wanted to get a feel for both City assets.

        1. ItOnlyTook9Years
          • 4 Years
          25 days, 12 hours ago

          If KDB is back I'm gonna be tempted to perma cap him for the foreseeable

          1. ZICO SENNA
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 12 hours ago

            Actually not a bad idea, i could possibly even do the same and throw captaincy conundrums out the window

    5. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Either B or E imo

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Thanks bud, looking like Tammy so far, feels rather comfortable on him for cap

    6. MeatPieSausageRoll
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      You surely don’t own Sterling? You’ve spent the entire season talking about how rubbish you think he is...

  6. Daniel - The Veteran

    Better 5th mid then Saka?

    Everyone going wild for Soy. I’ve got myself a nice little alternative (thanks to a wise heads up from Legend of Rosicky) in Willems. Check out the stats and fixtures from GW10 and thank me later

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Might be a good shout!

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years

      Actually a good option

      Doesn't he face competition in Krafth & Ritchie?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Not the way he’s been playing imo. Has been one of the best players on the pitch for them. Ritchie can play in mid

    Thoughts on this wildcard?

    Button - Pope
    TAA - Tomori - Soyuncu - Lundstram - Rico
    Mane - Mount - De Bruyne - Yarmolenko - Nakamba
    Aguero - Abraham - Jiminez

    1. Pep Roulette

      Mount to CHO & Jimenez to Wilson?

    2. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      Decent

    3. Freddiebell

      Fair team

  10. kennethrhcp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    would it be silly buying in CHO ahead of Maddison/Mount?

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Not silly over Maddison, but rather have Mount

      He is very tempting isn't he, think the safe pick is Mount tho.

          If you can wait until next week to decide which then it might be wise to coz who knows. He could be the best option of the 3

    “I am delighted to get the goals. It is goals that I always try to get as well as assists - any contributions to the team. I am happy with the finishes and I will hopefully build on it and get many more. I have scored many solo runs, maybe not exactly like that, but I am delighted to get a goal like that. Hopefully many more like that will come and I will get opportunities to score.

    “I will hopefully go back to Saturday with Chelsea and get another three points.”

      Well, he wouldn't be saying he'd rather be in goal!

    1. kennethrhcp

      im looking at Dilva out maybe this week.

      1. Dosh
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        For Maddison?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          25 days, 12 hours ago

          If I go for Maddison/Mount it'd be Dilva out

          if I go CHO it's either Dilva or Lanzini out

    1. Tempestic

      Jimenez for me, think he might be a great differential option. Fixtures long term are great.

    Kane this week then transfer in Aubamayang? Or just get Aubamayang now? (On WC)

    1. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Personally wouldn't plan a transfer when on a wildcard. Too many other things can happen.
      Get a team for 2 weeks minimum and re-evaluate then

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        This, but I can understand Kane's appeal

    2. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I'm not on WC but capt this week & pretty sure selling next

    3. RashFraud

      Auba now

    1. ItOnlyTook9Years

      Could definitely pay

    2. kuzser

      Keep for this week and have 2fr next one

    Tinkering with defenders on WC. Which combo would you prefer?

    - Söyüncü + Boly
    - Dunk + Pereira

    1. gooner_112233445566

      B

      1. TAT
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Any particular reason why? 🙂

    3. RashFraud
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Dunk and Soy, use the money elsewhere

      1. TAT
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        In my current draft I can afford one of Boly or Pereira, so that's why I'm looking at this combo. Might still change though, depending what players I bring in before the deadline.

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      B.

      I prefer Pereira over Soy for obvious reasons.

      Dunk vs Boly is less clear-cut. Both great for BPS. Both have goal threat. (Maybe Dunk a bit more?). Boly's fixtures are a bit better, but Brighton have some okay until the harder chunk coming up.

      1. TAT
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        I do agree with this. Pereira is the most tempting option in that Leicester defence, but it will likely require a cheaper pairing; Pereira + Boly might be too inflexible when looking at potential future transfers.

        Tricky one for sure!

  22. Barnes Owl
    • 1 Year
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    Trying to cover all bases in this WC.. thoughts?

    Ryan - Button
    Boly - Pereira - TAA - Lund - Rico
    Pepe - Mane - KDB - Mount - Dend
    Wilson - Jimmy - Tammy

    0.7m remains.. Any suggestions? Cheers!

    1. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Don't like the Pepe choice. Loving the front 3 though. Pereria > Soy for me also, the attacking stats aren't there

      1. Barnes Owl
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Pepe to Maddison and Pereira to Soy frees up 4.3m..

    2. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Don't like Pepe pick. Lacking Leicester as well

      1. Barnes Owl
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Was looking at Maddison with 2.9itb. Don't want to miss out on Arsenal fixtures and can't afford Auba which is why I went for Pepe. Wondering if I can cover Leicester with Pereira..

        1. Tempestic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 12 hours ago

          Pepe to Maddison, Pereira to Soy and then can u afford Auba for one of ur front 3?

          1. Tempestic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            25 days, 12 hours ago

            If ur so desperate to cover Arsenal this is

            1. Barnes Owl
              • 1 Year
              25 days, 12 hours ago

              Doing those gives me 0.3m leftover. I am loving the Jimenez pick though! Tough one!!

              1. Tempestic
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year

                Hmm it is tough, I like him also. Good differential long term

  23. THFC4LIFE

    Safe to do Greenwood > Wilson with my ft or wait til tomorrow?

      Will either change price tonight?
      Maybe you'll have an injury to sort instead.

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Wilson could rise, good point

    2. gooner_112233445566
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Do now.

  24. gooner_112233445566
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    Start

    A) rico (NORWICH)
    B) lund (ARSENAL)

    1. TheBrat
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Rico, just

  25. Slouch87 Scott Talent
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    The implication from Poch's presser for me is that Son is the first choice starter but there is back up if required.

    1. FPLFreddo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Training pictures will be key tomorrow, if he trains there's no reason why he won't start.

  26. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Here's my current WC team:

    Pope
    TAA / Pereira / Boly
    Salah / KDB / Maddison / Mount
    Vardy / Wilson / Abraham

    McGovern // Rico / Cantwell / Lundstram

    - What would you talk me out of?
    - What different player would you argue for?

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Very good ... similar to mine as it stands 🙂

  27. Ribus
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    Play:
    A) Rico (NOR)
    B) Aurier (WAT)

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Aurier for a red card ... Rico for an assist ...

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Rico has some great chance creation stats of late. Norwich not great at defending set pieces (well, defending in general).

      Sensible option is probably Aurier given defensive statistics (yes, even Tottenham have some decent signs), but Rico not a terrible punt this week.

  28. Stuck Matip In
    • 1 Year
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    Will Son play against Watford? (Spurs fans where you at?)

    1. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Arrived back from Korea this afternoon so ur guess is as good as ours. Feel like he'll come off the bench tbh

        That doesn't sound too promising... What a dilemma, it just feels so wrong taking him out this week.
