Premier League release official fixtures and initial TV schedule

The Premier League have released the first batch of official fixtures for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.

The schedule they have provided so far falls in line with the order of games originally planned before the coronavirus suspension in March.

That means the matches originally scheduled to be played in Gameweek 30, will all take place on the weekend of June 20 and June 21.

They will combine with Sheffield United’s trip to Aston Villa and Manchester City’s hosting of Arsenal in what is expected to be a Double Gameweek.

Which means the Double Gameweek line-ups for those four teams look like this:

TeamMatch 1Match 2
ArsenalMan City (A)Brighton (A)
Aston VillaSheff United (H)Chelsea (H)
Man CityArsenal (H)Burnley (H)
Sheff UnitedAston Villa (A)Newcastle (A)

The Premier League has also released the television schedule for the two Gameweeks beyond what would have originally been Gameweek 30.

These correspond to what would have been Gameweek 31 (before the FA Cup postponements) and Gameweek 32.

However, the fixtures that would have comprised the rounds of action beyond Gameweek 33 have not yet been released by the Premier League.

Furthermore, we will have a more detailed analysis of the teams who have the best fixtures in the first three Gameweeks soon.

In the mean-time don’t forget to check out Neale’s excellent work identifying the best and worst fixtures from the remainder of the season as a full block. READ IT HERE.

We should just clarify that, even though the TV dates heavily imply where the Gameweeks fall, the official deadlines/boundaries of these Gameweeks has not yet been confirmed by Fantasy Premier League.

      Not sure if this means anything in FPL terms but the post on Premier League's Instagram account with the fixtures says "Matchweek 30" and not 39...

        It is Matchweek 30. Gameweeks are an FPL term

    • Dr. Agabuse

      If we get our teams back with 2FTs, can i make those transfers before i play FH?
      Answer is no, right?
      But will i get 2FTs after my FH for the 2nd gw?

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Answer is no again, i fear

      2. I Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        No. 1 FT after using FH.

        If you make those 2 FTs in the week you play the Free Hit, your team next week (after the Free Hit GW) will contain the new players.

        If you make 2 FT to bring them in, then use a FH that same week to remove them, they will not sill be in your team the following week.

        After you've used your FH, you'll be back down to 1 FT.

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          What? That cant be right?
          Why would it make a difference who was on my FH team?

    • Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Answer is no again, i fear.
      With those fixtures i would want Vardy and Barnes for Auba and Cantwell/Saka.

      1. Dr. Agabuse

        2 months, 7 days ago

        (from week2 after FH)

    • FC FARCELONA CITY
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Plan has to be use unlimited transfers to set up a team from week 40 and free hit in week 39.

      Assuming unlimited transfers are available for the restart, we can do that????

        2 months, 7 days ago

        We won't know until the game is updated.

        Personally I'd go the other way round set up a team for GW39, FH40, which should give you a good team for GW41 as the teams with good fixtures in GW39, general do in GW41 as well.

      Does anyone know how to watch Sky Pick online? I don't have Sky, and recently moved into a flat where there doesn't seem to be any way of connecting my TV to freeview. Isn't usually an issue as I can get Channel 4, ITV, BBC online (mostly watch Netflix anyway), but would really like to be able to watch the free to air games without using some dodgy illegal stream!

      1. Coys96

        I think just go onto the sky website when the game is on and it will let u watch it. Might be on youtube live?

    • nibby

      Does anyone know if we are going to get extra free transfers or extra wc when fpl resumes?

      Little FPL update, confirming that each matchweek will be in it's own Gameweek

      https://www.premierleague.com/news/1665216?sf234774739=1

      1. Rotation's Alter Ego

        2 months, 7 days ago

        "We would like to remind managers that any chips you retain at present (i.e. Triple Captain, Bench Boost, Free Hit and/or Wildcard) would remain available for you, in accordance with the Game Rules, for these Gameweeks."

        So even if we were to get unlimited transfers, you could still use any chips?

        1. Wild Rover
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          You need to post more responsibly as a mod, even mentioning unlimited transfers will set everyone off again. There is nothing in that update or anything else FPL have said that suggests there will be unlimited transfers.

          1. Rotation's Alter Ego
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 9 Years

            It's not that deep WR, just pointing something out that I have seen questions about previously.

            I don't know about you, but I don't remember if we could use chips / if chips existed back when the website died GW 1 and unlimited transfers were rolled out.

            1. Pasqualinho
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              It was before the much-criticised chips were in force. back in the good old days of value/form vice captains.

              1. Monkey Hanger
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 7 days ago

                Yes, well before the advent of chips.

            2. Wild Rover
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              We didn't have chip then, just one wildcard.

            3. HamezMace
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Well you can’t use FH in GW1.

              1. Nightcrawler
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 7 days ago

                U can

                1. TwiggsJameson
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 7 days ago

                  No, you can't.

              2. Rotation's Alter Ego
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 7 days ago

                Didn't consider it precedent since there is no previous team to revert to in that scenario

        2. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Unlimited transfers?? Awesome bb can be used easily for the dgw then.

      2. Monkey Hanger
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Unlimited transfers looking less and less likely.

    • Zebrahimović
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I'm going the FH the first week back as i don't imagine we are going to get unlimited transfers. What do you think the optimum FH team will be with a healthy selection of DGW players?

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Henderson 3.9
        Stevens Targett
        KDB Mahrez/Sterling Pepe Grealish
        Aguero Aubameyang

        I'll defo have these players. Maybe a third Sheff defensive asset, Pukki and Trent?

        1. Zebrahimović
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Looks good. What's your TV?

          1. Coys96
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            105.8

        2. I Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          No Liverpool players? They're still the best team in the league.

    • AJ24
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Great that it fianlly looks that FPL is back!

      I may of missed a trick, but why are so many on here thinking there will be "Unlimited Transfers"?
      I would think that is extremely unlikely and doesnt really seem that fair for those who have grafted this season and saved all their Chips..

    • Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      If you still have FH, WC and BB intact, is the perceived wisdom to use FH for the DGW, then wild card shortly afterwards to set up for the remainder of the season?

      1. Monkey Hanger
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Looking favourite up to now.

      2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Cant think of a better week to use FH as it stands

    • Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Are FH-ers going without Liverpool assets against an Everton team that lost 4-0 last time out and are without Mina?

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        ...I should of added 'nailed' Pool assets...

      2. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Yes

      3. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Trent max

      4. I Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        No. I might not FH but if I do I'll have TAA and Salah/Mane.

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          No FH for me so unless unlimiteds show up I will likely do likewise with Salah and TAA. My 3rd VVD is a tough choice, very nailed but I'd really like a punt on Laporte.

      5. TwiggsJameson
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Yes.

      6. Klaren
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        If I FH, yes, possibly might get TAA depending on funds.

        Last Goodison Park result was 0-0 between the two. I think it's worth the risk.

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          this one will be at a neutral venue i think

    • Stupendous
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      What's the tentative plan for those like me with all chips AND wildcard in hand?

      I and this is under the assumption there IS NOT going to be any extra freebies/unlimited transfers etc and that you restart with what you left off with.

      Thanks.

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Play a chip first week as it will likely be the only DGW

        1. Benjustjamin
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          How is it likely??? champions league and all other comps will still be running, forcing fixtures to change, unless im wrong.

      2. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Depends how your looking for the first two GW's. My teams already looking good for GW40 and GW42. So I'm thinking

        FH39, TC Pool player in 42, WC 43 (which I'm weak for), to set up BB in 44 or 45

      3. abaalan
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Covid properly balls'd up the chip strategy. I have everything other than TC and have no idea when / how to play them :\
