Frisking the Fixtures

Which Premier League teams have the best and worst remaining fixtures?

There are just six Gameweeks remaining of 2019/20 so, with this week providing a little bit of respite ahead of a frenetic fortnight, we are taking another look at which Premier League clubs have the most and least favourable remaining fixtures.

This will be our final ‘frisk’ of the calendar this season as we prepare for five Fantasy Premier League deadlines in the space of two weeks.

Previously we had looked at the outstanding fixtures as a block and then highlighted the good and bad from Gameweeks 30+ to 34+.

Now we focus exclusively on Gameweeks 33+ to 38+, with a number of clubs experiencing fixture swings in different directions.

The upcoming matches look as follows on our Season Ticker:

The Season Ticker above is customisable for our Members, who can filter by difficulty, rotation pairings and home and away games as well as sort by attack and defence.

The Good

Manchester City

Next six: sou | NEW | bha | BOU | wat | NOR

Even Manchester United arguably don’t have an appealing a fixture run as their ‘noisy neighbours’ in the final six Gameweeks of 2019/20.

The Citizens’ remaining half-dozen games are all against sides currently in the bottom eight of the table, with Pep Guardiola’s troops the only club in the division avoiding a top-half team in the run-in.

While the “having something to play for” argument could be made in the case of the Premier League strugglers, let’s remind ourselves that Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich City haven’t won a single game between them since the Premier League resumed in June.

Those three teams are also without a clean sheet in the last three Gameweeks, having conceded 20 goals in a combined nine post-restart matches.

Before that is a meeting with a Southampton side who have the poorest home record in the division and then a clash with Newcastle United, who the Citizens comprehensively outplayed in last weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final.

As ever, the problem with City is who to buy.

Guardiola has made multiple changes in league and cup since the resumption, with no player having started all five of their competitive games.

The rewards will likely be as high as the risks for FPL managers, however, given how attractive those fixtures look and how on-song they’ve been over the last fortnight.

Manchester United

andys-gw33-article 3

Next six: BOU | avl | SOU | cry | WHU | lei

Manchester United will likely have a more settled side than their cross-city rivals in the run-in, at least so long as UEFA Champions League qualification is on the line.

The Red Devils are locked in a four-way tussle (at least) for two or three Champions League spots, which should ensure those involved in the neck-and-neck scrap continue to name strong starting XIs.

Eight members of Solskjaer’s first team are ever-presents in the last three Gameweeks.

The next two matches are perhaps the best in the division as a pair.

Bournemouth and Aston Villa have kept only one clean sheet between them this calendar year and they, along with United’s Gameweek 37+ opponents West Ham United, have the worst defensive records in 2020 in terms of both clean sheets and goals conceded.

The Cherries, in particular, looked woeful against Newcastle United on Wednesday.

Being ‘on the beach’ could work one of two ways for Southampton and Crystal Palace but few FPL managers will fear those tests based on United’s performances since the restart and even a Gameweek 38+ clash at Leicester City mightn’t be as tough as first feared, given that the stuttering Foxes have won just one of their last eight Premier League fixtures.

West Ham United

What impact has David Moyes had on West Ham? 5

Next six: new | BUR | nor | WAT | mun | AVL

West Ham United’s final six fixtures are very decent indeed, with five of the games against teams currently ranked tenth or below.

Three of the four clubs beneath them in the table are to come for the Hammers, who geared up for the fixture swing with an excellent win over Chelsea in midweek.

The impressive Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) and Michail Antonio (£6.9m) will likely start more matches than not so long as their Premier League status is on the line but, given how good the fixtures are, it’s feasible that David Moyes’ side could have their Premier League safety sewn up in advance of Gameweek 38+.

Newcastle and Burnley might make things trickier for the Hammers’ attacking assets, with the Magpies boasting one of the best home defensive records in the division and the Clarets having kept clean sheets in six of their last nine Premier League matches.

A trip to Old Trafford in Gameweek 37+ looks like one to swerve, too.

The three matches against Norwich City, Watford and Aston Villa, all of whom are winless since the Premier League resumed, are the real stand-out fixtures, however.

Also Consider

Few other teams can match the three sides above for favourable schedules.

Liverpool (AVL | bha | BUR | ars | CHE | new) assets have long been considered fixture-proof, of course, with the Reds having beaten every team in the division at least once this season.

The issue with Jurgen Klopp’s side is less about the opposition and more about the uncertainty of what an early title win brings, be it questions over motivation or the increased risk of rotation.

Klopp indeed said recently that he will have to make “a lot of changes” with the games coming so thick and fast.

Thursday’s pasting at Manchester City was also perhaps a sign of a drop-off from their usual sky-high levels.

A home fixture against Aston Villa this weekend will see Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) and co enter the captaincy equation, even if the Villans have tightened up slightly since the restart.

Burnley’s record against the big guns (two clean sheets and 33 goals conceded in 14 matches against the top eight) should also provide encouragement ahead of Gameweek 35+.

Everton (tot | SOU | wol | AVL | shu | BOU) and Norwich City (BHA | wat | WHU | che | BUR | mci) both have Jekyll-and-Hyde runs, with some appealing home fixtures punctuated by trickier trips away.

Given the Canaries’ plight (only one goal scored in their last eight league matches and none since the restart), it’ll likely only be the Toffees’ Fantasy assets who seriously trouble the FPL radar.

Everton’s defence has impressed since the June resumption, conceding just one goal in matches against Liverpool, Norwich and Leicester, so the likes of Mason Holgate (£4.3m) could potentially be wheeled out for the visits of Southampton, Aston Villa and Bournemouth and benched for the trips to Spurs and Wolves.

The Toffees’ last three opponents have scored on just six occasions from 11 combined post-restart matches, indeed.

Harry Kane - An FPL Must Own Over Christmas 1

The reverse is perhaps true of Tottenham Hotspur (EVE | bou | ARS | new| LEI | cry), who arguably have trickier fixtures at home than they do on their travels.

Bournemouth, Newcastle and Crystal Palace are in the bottom six for goals scored this season, although the Magpies have shone in an attacking sense of late.

Everton and Arsenal have only kept a combined three clean sheets on the road since Carlo Ancelotti and Mikel Arteta were appointed in December, meanwhile.

Don’t discount Burnley‘s (SHU | whu | liv | WOL | nor | BHA) run-in, either, with Nick Pope (£5.0m) having kept 11 clean sheets in 18 meetings against the sides currently ranked 10th or below – four of whom the Clarets play between Gameweeks 33+ and 38+.

Wolves have frequently struggled to break down the ‘also-rans’, too, so a clash with Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops might not be as bad as it looks.

Using the ‘per 90’ tool to assess FPL midfielders with the best goal threat 1

Owners of Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m) may well be clinging on to the hope that Watford (che | NOR | NEW | whu | MCI | ars) can raise their game in Gameweeks 34+ to 36+, with the out-of-sorts Hornets facing three winnable matches against bottom-half teams.

Following their struggles against Burnley and Southampton, however, it’s very much a case of fixtures over form for Nigel Pearson’s troops.

Watford’s first opponents in the last six Gameweeks are Chelsea (WAT | cry | shu | NOR | liv | WOL), whose next four matches are very tempting indeed – providing Sheffield United don’t rediscover their pre-lockdown form, which is very possible based on Thursday’s evidence.

Home fixtures against the relegation-threatened Hornets and Norwich are obviously the pick of the bunch – those two clubs have scored just one goal between them in their last eight away fixtures combined.

The Bad

Bournemouth

Next six: mun | TOT | LEI | mci | SOU | eve

Bournemouth have perhaps the worst run-in in the division with four top ten sides to come between Gameweeks 33+ and 36+.

Even if the Cherries were a team in form, those fixtures would be a tough sell.

As it happens, they are in dreadful nick.

Favourable matches against Crystal Palace and Newcastle United have come and gone without Eddie Howe’s side having scored, with only a Gameweek 37+ home fixture against Southampton (who let’s not forget have been excellent travellers this season) offering much hope of a result.

If there is any cause for optimism, it’s that Bournemouth have not been too awful against the ‘bigger’ teams this season, having taken points from Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal.

But they’ll be a team we’re targeting for the wrong reasons between now and Gameweek 38+.

Crystal Palace

Next six: lei | CHE | avl | MUN | wol | TOT

No Premier League side has fewer remaining meetings (one) with sides in the bottom half than Crystal Palace, with three of the Eagles’ outstanding games against ‘big six’ sides and the other two against Champions League-chasing Leicester and Wolves.

The Eagles have been solid at the back under Roy Hodgson but all ten of the shut-outs in 2019/20 have come against clubs ranked tenth or below.

Goals have been hard to come by at the other end, meanwhile – only Norwich City have scored fewer this season.

The likes of Jordan Ayew (£5.2m) and Gary Cahill (£4.4m are in emergency substitute territory for the run-in, then, with the exception perhaps of the Gameweek 35+ clash with Aston Villa.

Aston Villa

Next six: liv | MUN | CRY | eve | ARS | whu

That clash between Aston Villa and Palace also perhaps represents the best chance for Dean Smith’s side to pick up points in their fight against the drop.

Either side of that game are meetings with both Merseyside clubs, Manchester United and Arsenal.

Not only are the fixtures bad, but the form is too: Villa are winless in their four post-restart games, having scored just twice in the meanwhile.

Jack Grealish (£6.2m) is the only Villa asset with a noteworthy FPL ownership figure but he is haemorrhaging owners by the week, with his blanks in Double Gameweek 30+ followed by two more fruitless showings.

A security of starts is about the only thing in Grealish’s corner at present, with the Villa talisman having failed to deliver in eight of his nine last starts.

Also Consider

Is it time to invest in Arsenal assets after Gameweek 28? 5

Arsenal (wol | LEI | tot | LIV | avl | WAT) and Southampton‘s (MCI | eve | mun | BHA | bou | SHU) seasons end on a high note, fixture-wise, but there are some tricky tests to come before then.

Two clubs tussling for a Champions League place are up next for the Gunners, with the north London derby and the visit of Liverpool rounding off a tough foursome of fixtures.

Do the fixtures matter to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m), though? The Gabonese forward is tied with Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) in the race for the Golden Boot and has banked attacking returns against five of Arsenal’s next six opponents already this season.

Danny Ings (£7.3m) is himself only one goal behind Aubameyang, and those three final games for Southampton look attractive.

The two in-form Manchester clubs lie in wait before then, however, as well as an Everton side who have conceded only one goal (and a freak one, at that) since the mid-June restart.

The Toffees, City and United have indeed kept a combined seven clean sheets in ten matches from Gameweek 30+ onwards.

Patience with Vardy wearing thin as Leicester attack continues to struggle

Leicester City (CRY | ars | bou | SHU | tot | MUN) and Newcastle United (WHU | mci | wat | TOT | bha | LIV) have decent home fixtures in Gameweek 33+ before things take a bit of a turn.

The out-of-sorts Foxes have been struggling since the restart, picking up only two points from three matches against teams in the bottom half.

Their run-in isn’t a complete write-off, with a wretched Bournemouth side who have kept fewer clean sheets than any club in 2019/20 to come in Gameweek 35+.

Whether Tottenham Hotspur are formidable opposition based on Thursday’s evidence is also up for debate.

Two of the most improved defences in Arsenal and Manchester United lie in wait, however, along with a dogged Sheffield United backline that looked a lot more like their old selves in Gameweek 32+.

The Magpies face the free-scoring top two in the run-in but the budget-friendly Jamaal Lascelles (£4.3m) and Federico Fernandez (£4.6m) are at least available at ‘benchable’ prices and decent options in three other fixtures against clubs in the bottom five.

    Anybody planning on swapping a Liverpool attacker for Kane next gameweek?
    Possibly looking at Mane + Nketiah to Kane + Foden.
    (This week Son > Mahrez)

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Just wonder where all the love for Kane is coming from... Spurs look pretty mediocre right now.

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        It;s Bournemouth so a possibility of a Kane haul.

        1. Balls of Steel
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Fair enough

      2. Collie01
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I got him on my WC last week.

        Good stats, nailed, historically can haul big, on pens, differential, decent fixtures, lack of other standout forward options.

    2. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      even if Kane got brace I don't think so, requires major surgery..... like how him/Son nailed though

      1. Balls of Steel
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Any chance Son could be given a rest this week.. He has had a quite return and played mostly all minutes of their 3 matches?

        1. Pegboy
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Possible but unlikely.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Yes Salah to Foden and DCL to Kane something may consider

  2. JONALDINHO
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Martinez
    Trent • Doherty • Lascelles
    Salah • KDB • Son • Bruno
    Rashford • Jimmy • DCL.

    Son and 4.2mid to Mahrez and Foden? Play a 352 with DCL on bench

    1. tempest
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yup. Spurs are toilet

    2. Hansel
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yeah I’m on that or Martial. What’s your thought on that?

      1. tempest
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Either or...

      2. JONALDINHO
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        A triple up on Bruno, Rash and Martial is too much imo. Initially wanted Martial but I feel he will be rotated the most. Rashford and Bruno are just naturally fitter

        1. Hansel
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Thx. I guess Mahrez will too though

  3. Totti
    • 3 Years

    is it confirmed that pogba and bruno news is fake
    or there is a chance that it might be true?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      The news confirming the news is fake could be fake news? Mind blown!

        No could about it - the Mirror has not retracted or apologised for its article.

        The connection with a parody article is all assumption!

        1. Uncle Gamst
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          So a parody article reports that they collided in training and both have ligament damage. This is followed by them colliding training and both sustaining ligament damage?!

            • 1 Year

            Not saying the assumption isn’t correct, just that the reported news by mirror hasn’t been officially debunked

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 1 day ago

              So in other words the news *could* be fake news?

    2. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      no chance

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        why are you sure?

  4. SuperDan
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Pick one:
    A) Rashford, Martial, Doherty, VVD
    B) Rashford, Martial, TAA, Saiss
    C) Rashford, Antonio, Doherty, VVD
    D) Kane, Foden, Doherty, TAA

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      A

    2. tempest
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      A or D

    3. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      A but like the Antonio pick with his fixtures and OOP!

  5. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    A Mane or
    B Salah for the rest of the season...?

    1. Pegboy
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      B, but not a whole lot in it.

    2. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      got A as didn't think there was much between them and 0.2 was handy however if same price would have Salah

    3. tempest
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Salah but wouldn’t transfer one for the other...

  6. BrutalLogiC
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    got 2 x FT

    A) Son => Martial
    B) Son + DCL ==> Martial + Greenwood

    Hi Guys

    Current team

    DDG (McCarthy)
    Alonso,TAA, Boly (O'Connell, Tanganga)
    Richarlison, Son, KDB, Bruno (Fleck)
    DCL, Rashford, Jimenez

    Is Sn & Fleck to Pulisic & Mahrez nuts??

    Bit worried about rotation (Chasing!)

    Cheers

    Or just Richarlison to Mahrez/Pulisic?

    1. Crunchie
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Son sorry

  9. The Dance
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    If i decide to FH, would it be plausible to do KDB to Mahrez just for one GW in your opinion?

    Thanks guys

    1. Goooo Rickie
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I'm in the same boat. He will surely be benched for this one right?

        1. Pegboy
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          50/50 for me.

        2. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          You’d think so, or an early subbing/late off the bench.

          My season is over anyway, so may as well FH, got nothing left to lose lol

      • Collie01
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        You would think that is the most obvious rotation pattern, but it's risky to 2nd guess Pep.

    2. Hryszko
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Quick, pick one to be your captain this week?

      1. Salah
      2. Fernandes
      3. Rashford
      4. KDB

      1. Hansel
        • 9 Years

        That order

        1. Pegboy
          • 9 Years

          Justin over Aurier this week.

          1. Collie01
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            Thank you. Justin better chance of CS but Aurier assist potential if he plays as wing back - big if though. Probably will play Justin.

        So in terms of the whole BrunoPogba-gate shenanigans - The fact pattern seems to be one below right?

        1. A parody account posted a windup on 1st July saying Pogba & Bruno were injured - complete with ridiculous made up quotes from Ole.

        2. This evening at around 7pm The Mirror put out an article saying Pogba & Bruno had been injured and would be missing

        So either

        (a) it’s the mother of all coincidences, and Pogba & Bruno coincidentally HAVE gotten injured 2 days after the parody article - and The Mirror are the only news outlet that have gotten direct wind of it

        Or

        (B) The Mirror have gone and dropped an absolute bollock by thinking the parody article was real & actually reported it as news

        1. Berbs
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          It's B

          I think it would be great to have another tab under team news for reliable journalists for each team. Or a tier ranking for newspaper sources.

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 10 Years

            That would be very neat - a scorecard type system - how many team news predictions they’ve made and whether they’ve been right or wrong each time

            The Mirror should be burned to the ground if they’ve reported that parody article as fact - even a 10 year old would know the quotes from Ole alone are completely fictitious

            I can’t bring myself to believe they’d be that incompetent, but as a Bruno owner I obviously hope they’re wrong

            I doubt FFS want to risk getting sued for officially saying a journalist is shite

              Measure it objectively though - who did the journalist say would/would not start and did they or did they not start

              Keep it fact based rather than opinion based & there’s no legal or commercial issues at all

                  I think the point is that folks believe it would be a productive and constructive thing if it WERE to happen though, right?

                    Of course, and nothing is stopping anyone doing this off their own back.

                      It’s possible that time, energy and possibly technical nous may be examples of he types of barriers to just “anyone” off the street doing it -

                      But theoretically if a person was motivated enough, and had the time and the know how they could set something up...

                      Or equally, per the original point FFS could do it for us in an objective and fact based way that attracts no legal or commercial liability & acts as another string to their bow in terms of keeping existing, and adding new, paying members

        SCOUT PICKS CHALLENGE - GAMEWEEK 33+

        [PRIZE FOR THIS GW] To spice things up a little and offer additional support to the website, I'm willing to donate a FFS Membership for the upcoming season to the winner of this gameweek... so for those of you who haven't taken part so far, most definitely worth entering this time around!

        GW29 results: https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/comment/21973529
        GW30+ results: https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/comment/22004393

        ****** WHAT IS IT? ******

        For those of you who haven't been around or aren't aware, every evening prior to the start of the gameweek FFS releases their picks of players for the gameweek, "Scout Picks", as well as 3 differentials before the first games to separate yourself from the crowd.

        This is your way to have a bit of fun and challenge those scout picks with a set of your own (read instructions below). This will always open the day before the gameweek starts around 8pm, and whilst you don't have to play weekly, the more you play the better chance you have of winning!

        ****** INSTRUCTIONS ******

        Everyone can have their own scout picks (there is no limit on team value) but with one simple rule,

        YOU CAN ONLY PICK ONE PLAYER FROM EACH TEAM
        (yes, two of your players at least will be on opposing teams).

        You can only have ONE submission, and your FIRST submission will be what is accepted. You also must respond DIRECTLY to this post (I.e. not to a reply on this post, just as a reply to this post). FFS Scout Picks are automatically enrolled. Teams must comply with FPL formation rules and be submitted in an easy to read format, e.g.

        GK
        DEF DEF DEF
        MID MID MID MID
        FOR FOR FOR

        Deadline for this gameweek is Saturday 4 July, 11:30 GMT.

        ****** SCORING ******

        Regardless of number of applicants, scoring will be done by the following:

        1st place: 3 points
        Top 4% of the population will rank "second" and score 2 points.
        Top 10% of the population will rank "third" and score 1 point.

        There is also a bonus point which everyone is eligible for. If you score higher than FFS' Scout Picks AND Substitutes (i.e. 14 players), you will be awarded with a bonus point regardless of whether you were in the top 10% scoring positions or not.

        Welcome to the game, and good luck.

        Is Jesus just a poor option or due a goal? I have exact money to do Deeney - Jesus but tempted to bring in Rashford instead.
        Then next Gw Martial - Mahrez for the extra city spot

          He has been playing poorly. Seems to have regressed from what I've seen of him. Of course he should get plenty of chances so could still score esp with City's easy fixtures.

        Would you FH this. Already take -4 hit

            I have Boly on the bench.

            Idk. KdB is also rotation risk and maybe Trent and Salah too

        I know these teams are largely the same but which do you prefer as of GW34+

        A.
        DDG
        TAA Doherty Digne (JRob)
        Mane KDB Mahrez Fernandes Martial
        Jimenez DCL (Nketiah)

        B.
        DDG
        TAA Doherty Holgate (Lascelles) + 2m to upgrade to Digne a GW later
        Foden KDB Mahrez Fernandes Martial
        Kane Jimenez (DCL)

      15. FPL Egregious

        I want to sell Sarr before his price drops again. Here are the options:
        A. Pulisic for free
        B. Martial for -4 (includes Nketiah out for Connoly or Kabasele out for Robinson)
        C. Mahrez for -4 (includes Aurier out for Taylor)

        Mf: salah, kdb, bruno and st max
        Fw: Rashfor, Jim, Nketiah

        1. Bookkeeper
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          D. Nketiah out for Greenwood?

          1. FPL Egregious
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            And bench Sarr? But Watford seems to be out of form why keep him?
