Frisking the Fixtures

Which teams have the best and worst fixtures over Christmas?

We Fantasy managers currently find ourselves in a midweek limbo, with eight Gameweek 15 fixtures still to contest before we turn our attention to the weekend’s games.

With the matches coming thick and fast throughout December and into the New Year, we are due a “frisk” of the Premier League fixture list.

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

Our primary focus will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead here, which takes us up to the final set of games before FA Cup third round weekend – although 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

Crystal Palace

Next six: wat | BHA | new | WHU | sou | nor

Palace’s victory over Bournemouth last night was the second of eight matches that the Eagles enjoy against sides currently in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Quite simply, there isn’t a run as good as this over the next six Gameweeks and Roy Hodgson’s side sit top of our Season Ticker over this period as a result.

The omens are particularly good from a defensive perspective: in their six games against bottom-half teams this season, they have kept five clean sheets and conceded just one goal.

All six of their next opponents are in the bottom half for goals scored, too.

The Eagles aren’t renowned for their own goalscoring exploits and have created fewer big chances than any other top-flight team this season.

Only Watford and Newcastle, their opponents in Gameweeks 16 and 18, have scored fewer goals than the Eagles.

Even against bottom-half teams, Hodgson’s side have only scored at a rate of 1.33 goals per game.

However, the Eagles’ next six opponents lie in the bottom seven for big chances conceded in 2019/20.

Tottenham Hotspur

Next six: BUR | wol | CHE | BHA | nor | sou

Son on the rise as Mourinho's Tottenham triumph over West Ham

With a new manager at the helm and goals flowing at the business end of the pitch, Tottenham Hotspur’s FPL assets are suddenly back under consideration.

We looked at how Jose Mourinho had put his stamp on Spurs’ set-up in our Gameweek 14 review, while Tom Freeman (aka avfc82) also discussed the Lilywhites in his latest Pro Pundits piece.

Spurs have scored ten goals in three competitive matches going into Wednesday’s clash with Manchester United and there are some appealing matches ahead for Mourinho’s troops, particularly in Gameweeks 19-24: Spurs enjoy four fixtures against sides currently in the relegation zone, with a double-header against Norwich City among them.

Before that, games against Burnley, Wolves and Chelsea will perhaps pose more of a test: those three clubs are in the top half for fewest big chances and shots in the box conceded.

That trio are also among the ten best clubs for big chances created at the other end of the pitch.

The good thing is that the games against Burnley and Chelsea come at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium: those two clubs have kept only one clean sheet between them on the road in 2019/20.

Aston Villa

Next six: LEI | shu | SOU | WAT | nor | bur

Two tough tests against high-flying Leicester City and Sheffield United await Aston Villa in Gameweeks 16 and 17.

No club had kept as many clean sheets as Leicester (six) heading into Wednesday night’s games, with the Blades just one behind on five shut-outs.

The two sides have conceded just 22 goals between them this season, as many as Villa have shipped themselves.

Beyond that, though, there are some really appealing fixtures.

The Villans faces all three sides currently in the relegation zone from Gameweeks 18-20, with a return match against 20th-placed Watford to come in Gameweek 24.

That trio of Premier League strugglers also languish in the bottom three for goals conceded, which will be of interest to those eyeing up Jack Grealish (£5.9m) et al.

Trips to bottom-half Burnley and Brighton and Hove Albion also await Dean Smith’s troops in Gameweeks 21 and 23.

The Seagulls, Watford, Norwich and Southampton are in the bottom five for big chances conceded this season.

Sheffield United

Next six: nor | AVL | bha | WAT | mci | liv

We have slightly tweaked the rules to include Sheffield United in this piece, as their double-header against Manchester City and Liverpool in Gameweeks 20 and 21 is obviously off-putting.

Over the preceding four Gameweeks, however, Chris Wilder’s side enjoy some particularly favourable fixtures.

Two of the bottom three in Norwich and Watford await, along with two sides currently hovering just above the relegation zone: Aston Villa and Brighton.

Many of us are predominantly interested in the Blades’ defence, with John Lundstram‘s (£5.1m) FPL ownership soaring to over 46%.

Villa will pose a challenge to their defensive solidity but Norwich, Brighton and Watford are in the bottom seven for goals scored this season – even if the Canaries have perked up slightly over the last fortnight.

That trio of clubs are also in the bottom eight for big chances created.

There is hope for Lys Mousset (£5.1m) at the other end of the pitch, too, with their Gameweek 16-19 opponents all having shipped at least 21 goals in their 14 league fixtures contested so far.

Leicester City

Next six: avl | NOR | mci | LIV | whu | new

Much like Sheffield United, the Foxes have a looming double-header against Liverpool and Manchester City that dents their assets’ appeal a little.

However, their seven other fixtures in Gameweeks 16-24 are all against sides currently in the bottom half of the table.

Factoring in their recent matches against Everton and Watford, Leicester will have faced all eight sides who have conceded the most amount of league goals this season in Gameweeks 14-24 – great news for owners of Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) and co.

West Ham, Norwich and Southampton, who Leicester enjoy four fixtures against between now and mid-January, are also in the bottom three for big chances conceded.

At the other end, those three clubs plus Newcastle are in the bottom half for goals scored.

Also Consider

Favourable fixtures still may not be enough for managers to invest heavily in Southampton (new | WHU | avl | che | CRY | TOT) and Newcastle United (SOU | bur | CRY | mun | EVE | LEI) assets in December but the two sides do enjoy some more appealing games in the next three Gameweeks, before things get trickier from Boxing Day onwards.

Danny Ings (£6.2m) is the most-owned Southampton asset by some distance and from his perspective, the prospects look good over the next trio of games: Newcastle, West Ham and Aston Villa are all in the bottom eight for goals conceded at the time of writing.

The Hammers have allowed more big chances than any club, while Villa are bottom for shots in the box conceded.

From a Newcastle point of view, our interests are perhaps more in their defenders.

In Southampton and Palace, the Magpies will be facing two clubs who – like themselves – are in the bottom three for shots in the box.

Chelsea (eve | BOU | tot | SOU | ars | bha) have a couple of tricky-looking games in north London in Gameweeks 18 and 20, although a trip to Goodison Park isn’t the daunting test it was towards the back-end of last season.

Home fixtures against Bournemouth and Southampton are particularly appealing at both ends of the pitch.

Manchester United‘s (mci | EVE | wat | NEW| bur | ars) six-Gameweek lookahead is also bookended by two away tests at City and Arsenal but there are some appealing games sandwiched within that, with a trip to Watford in Gameweek 18 – when several other clubs either blank or have a tough match-up – one to consider.

The Weak

Everton

Next six: CHE | mun | ARS | BUR | new | mci

Out of form, low on confidence and with a manager teetering on the brink of the sack: who would back Everton’s Fantasy assets at present?

To compound their misery, the Toffees sit bottom of our Season Ticker over the next six Gameweeks.

Clean sheets have been in short supply (just one from Gameweeks 3-14) and there don’t look to be many in the offing between now and the New Year, with all bar Newcastle of their next six opponents currently in the top half for goals scored.

The Toffees had a decent record against the ‘big six’ in 2018/19 and, with the caveat being that this is written before the Merseyside derby, weren’t disgraced in matches against City, Leicester and Spurs this season.

That said, many of their most-popular FPL assets don’t come cheap and there is no question that better options exist in the low-premium price brackets over the festive period.

Manchester City

Next six: MUN | ars | LEI | wol | SHU | EVE

Unlike Everton’s players, many of us still retain faith – misplaced or otherwise – in Manchester City assets.

Pep Guardiola’s side have almost been completely fixture-proof in the last two seasons but they haven’t quite hit full throttle in 2019/20.

They have already dropped 13 points so far this season, having lost only 16 in the whole of 2018/19.

So long as their attacking assets are scoring, however, we Fantasy managers can overlook the results themselves.

A forthcoming double-header against United and Arsenal may look tricky on paper but those two clubs are without a clean sheet since Gameweeks 5 and 8 respectively, which should provide encouragement to owners of Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£10.3m).

It is arguably the three matches that follow that are tougher tests: Leicester, Wolves and Sheffield United are, like the two Manchester clubs, in the top six for fewest goals conceded this season and have 14 clean sheets between them at the time of writing.

Bournemouth

Next six: LIV| che | BUR | ARS | bha | whu

A Bournemouth side struggling for form and goals languish near the bottom of our Season Ticker over the next four Gameweeks before things improve drastically after Boxing Day.

Games against Liverpool and Chelsea should see plenty of benchings for Diego Rico (£4.3m).

With Eddie Howe’s injury-hit side on a run of five goals in the last eight games, there seems little incentive to invest in attacking assets, either, although the visit of a leaky Arsenal defence and the subsequent fixture swing in Gameweek 20 will perhaps increase their appeal.

Also Consider

Wolves (bha | TOT | nor | MCI | liv | wat) and Arsenal (whu | MCI | eve | bou | CHE | MUN) are in similar boats over the next six Gameweeks, with three meetings apiece against so-called ‘big six’ clubs interspersed by more ‘winnable’ games.

The problem for Arsenal is that their three more favourable fixtures, against West Ham, Everton and Bournemouth, all come away from home, where the Gunners have struggled this season and last.

Freddie Ljungberg’s side have won just once on the road in 2019/20 and are only scoring at a rate of one goal per game on their travels.

Wolves’ fixture run might not be enough for owners of Raul Jimenez (£7.7m) to offload, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops – and the Mexican striker himself – excelled against the big six sides in 2018/19.

Jimenez registered four goals and five assists against these ‘elite’ teams last season.

Barring a brief dalliance with their defenders under the pragmatic Quique Sanchez Flores, Fantasy managers have largely given Watford (CRY | liv | MUN | shu | AVL | WOL) a wide berth this season.

The uncertainty over their next managerial appointment and their fixture run from Gameweeks 17-19 especially will likely see that trend continue for the time being.

The Blank Gameweekers

A special mention to two sides we haven’t discussed yet: Liverpool (bou | WAT | – | lei | WOL | SHU) and West Ham United (ARS | sou | – | cry | LEI | BOU).

There won’t be many Fantasy managers who aren’t aware that these two sides blank in Gameweek 18. with Liverpool’s Club World Cup commitments forcing a postponement of their scheduled league clash with the Hammers to an as-yet-unconfirmed later date.

Interest in West Ham’s players will be in short supply but many of us still own Liverpool assets and will be loath to ditch before the blank given that a double-header against out-of-form Bournemouth and bottom-of-the-table Watford precedes Gameweek 18.

Many Fantasy managers will perhaps bench their Liverpool assets for one Gameweek only but a tricky trip to Leicester in Gameweek 19, followed by the far-from-straightforward visits of Wolves and Sheffield United, may have some of us pondering whether to ditch a player or two from Jurgen Klopp’s side in the short-term.

As we mentioned in our Manchester City entry, those three clubs are in the top six for fewest goals conceded this season.

      If I were an Aston Villa player, I would give him a knee to the hip when challenging for a header etc. See if he can take it.

    Any news on Chilwell? Just rested?

  3. Infamy, Infamy

    Line up question. Rival in mini league has starting 442 formation. Cancelo DNP, Chilwell out, Tomori on bench for Chelsea. Abraham is his first sub. If he only has 2 defenders play, will Abraham sub in as 4 midfielders and 3 forwards is a valid formation?

    1. thunder_mike
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      Yes.

    2. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      No because a striker cannot be subbed in for a 3rd defender, you must have a minimum of three on the pitch (even if the 3rd doesn't play).

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 20 hours ago

        Oh yeah sorry he could sub in for the 4th defender. Misread, my bad.

    An Abraham hattrick would be sweet sweet justice

      It was strange that he didn't drop in price in the last few days being less than -102.0%

      Yes I sold him

  5. Alan The Llama

    Who's on penalties for Chelsea with Jorginho on the bench? Abraham?

    1. Daniel S.

      Lampard 😉

    2. F4L

      probably Willian

      think so

      1. Daniel S.

        Its Wilian

    4. in sane in de bruyne

      Willian maybe

    5. Tonyawesome69

      willian

  6. drughi

    Should we really be that excited ? we all got vardy captain and basically the same players

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      any player in your team at under 50% EO returning would provide a good rank boost.

      Millner likely to start after full rest on weekend.

    2. Simmering Marv'

      if Milner is out, then maybe Mane?

    Currently playing 3-5-2 formation. But which pair would you choose? The cheaper one would be mainly a bench fodder

    A) Abraham + Cantwell (requires 2FT)
    B) Pulisic + Connolly (1FT)

    Blinking marvellous isn't it your injured player returns (Abraham) when you've got two clean sheets on the bench!

    2. Maddamotha

      How are you screwed? Mousset scored last game, and have a good fixture this week.

    4. bigwig

    6. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      Christensen injured that early?

    7. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      Tomori is benched so that’s going to be tricky....

    8. King Henrik
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      FML. I didn't realise Tomori was on the bench lol. Hope he stays there now Lundstram 1st sub.

      1. Simmering Marv'
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 hours ago

        You benched our lord and saviour? How could you?

        1. King Henrik
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 20 hours ago

          I know right massive mistake man. Never bench the main man Lundz !!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years

    chelsea will be exposed as the mid table team they are tonight

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years

      As long as Abraham and pulisic score I'm happy.

  22. LOLarov
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 20 hours ago

    Chances Tomori doesn't come on for a 1 point cameo? I get Rico 9 points if he stays firmly on the bench....Looking at it if chelsea take a lead he will play last 20 mins to support the defence.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It's Christiansen, and he is made of glass

      1. Daniel S.

        Glasstensen

    3. Rolls-Royce

      If Chelsea are winning comfortably, he won't.

      1. stupendous
        • 7 Years

        Well yea if I'm making 3 moves of course.

        Have had 2 hits all season so far.

        -8

        Long term plans here

  24. Daniel S.
    • 11 Years

    97 pts and I am happy. How about you?

    Is this the end of Tomori's run if Chelsea keep a cleanie tonight? Thoughts?

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      I think its just a rest for Tomori. He is Lamps number 1 cb still

    2. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 20 hours ago

      Its the end either way, rotation risk in a team thats not that great defensively and their good fixtures are coming to an end. Im getting rid for sure.

    3. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      7 months, 19 hours ago

      It could be as well a tactical reason to get the bigger cbs wrestle vs Wesley

    4. pumpkinhead

      Was the end last week when WH scored on them at Home.

    Willian Mount Pulisic

    Nice attacking squad, think there is going to be a lot of goals in this one, on both sides.

    Sorry to spoil the fun for Abraham nonsellers (including me) but Villa is going to take the W here
