Frisking the Fixtures

Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures?

We assess the Premier League clubs with the strongest and weakest runs of league matches over the coming weeks in our regular frisk of the fixture list.

Although our primary focus will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead in this article, we will scrutinise the longer-term prospects where relevant.

We’re still waiting for the top flight of English football to settle down to some extent, with only two of the traditional “big six” clubs currently to be found above 10th place.

Perhaps what we perceive to be normality won’t resume and upstarts like Everton, Leeds United and Aston Villa are here to stay at the top end of the table.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that our Season Ticker, which is the primary source for this piece, has already had a tweak in terms of fixture difficulty rating: the table-topping Toffees, for example, have crossed over to the scarlet end of the colour spectrum.

There have been functionality improvements to the ticker on our home page, too, with ‘drag and drop’ returning and the ability to remove a Gameweek added.

THE STRONG

CRYSTAL PALACE

Next six: wol |LEE | bur | NEW | wba | TOT

Crystal Palace remain top of our Season Ticker over the next six Gameweeks, although their favourable run is bookended by tricky tests against a defensively solid Wolverhampton Wanderers and high-flying Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gameweek 8 visit of Leeds United is no straightforward prospect either, given the ease with which Marcelo Bielsa’s side brushed aside the previously unbeaten Aston Villa last Friday.

It’s the three fixtures that fall immediately after the international break that catch the eye most as Burnley, Newcastle and West Bromwich Albion all currently lie 14th or below in the embryonic Premier League table.

Wolves’ relative struggles in front of goal are also worth considering: four of the Eagles’ five Gameweek 7-11 opponents, including Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, are in the bottom half of the table for goals scored.

The Gameweek 5 and 6 fixtures were frustrating from a defensive perspective, with 90th-minute strikes, both from outside the box, depriving the Eagles of clean sheets.

Roy Hodgson’s troops were only a slice of luck away from shut-outs in both cases and, given their defence-first reputation, par for the next five Gameweeks would surely be at least two clean sheets.

EVERTON

Next six: new | MUN | ful | LEE | bur | CHE

As is the case with Palace, Everton’s schedule take a bit of a nosedive from Gameweek 12 onwards.

Not that our traditional view of what constitutes a tricky fixture seems to hold true at present, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) already delivering the goods against both Spurs and Liverpool.

If we are to consider games that are at least appealing on paper, then the Toffees’ next three away matches are among the best.

Newcastle, Fulham and Burnley have looked like three of the most anaemic attacks in the Premier League this season and rank in the bottom six for big chances created.

That trio of clubs only have two clean sheets between them, although the Clarets have begun to look more like their old mean selves since the international break and made life tough for Spurs on Monday.

ASTON VILLA

Next six: SOU | ars | BHA | whu | NEW | wol

Aston Villa’s 100% record came to a crashing end against Leeds United last Friday, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side delivering a reality check to the Villans.

Villa’s upcoming run of games, particularly at home, presents them with a decent opportunity to regain their momentum, however.

Dean Smith’s side sit top of our Season Ticker from now until Boxing Day, with Southampton, Brighton, Newcastle, Burnley and Crystal Palace up next for the Villans on their own turf and West Brom awaiting in Gameweek 15.

While some of those sides are performing well in the opening weeks of the campaign, that still constitutes a welcoming sequence of games in most people’s eyes.

Arsenal, West Ham and Wolves will be tough nuts to crack for Jack Grealish (£7.3m) and co on the road, however, with that trio of clubs among the more defensively secure sides in the division this season.

Villa’s fixtures rotate fairly well with those of both Newcastle and West Ham up until Christmas, should any FPL manager be considering a way to navigate those trickier tests for Smith’s troops.

WEST HAM UNITED

Next six: liv | FUL | shu| AVL | MUN | lee

Given that Frisking the Fixtures is a fortnightly series, West Ham United’s favourable run will have already commenced by the time we take a look over the schedule again during the international break.

The Hammers sit top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 8-20, with some particularly juicy games in east London to come against Fulham, Villa, Palace, Brighton, West Brom and Burnley over the next three months.

A trip to Anfield is the last obstacle before the November swing but the Reds are struggling for numbers at the back and this might be a decent time to face the reigning champions, who have conceded a joint-league-worst 14 goals this season.

Michail Antonio (£6.3m) has already bagged goals against Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City in 2020/21, so the calibre of opposition seems to matter little to the in-form forward – although his hamstrings might have a say in his availability.

David Moyes’ side have been excellent since a Gameweek 2 switch to a wing-back system but it remains to be seen how they fare against sides who are more content to let the Hammers play on the front foot, which might be the case in Gameweeks 8 and 9.

CHELSEA

Next six: bur |SHU | new | TOT | LEE | eve

Were we to focus solely on the next three Gameweeks, then Chelsea would top the pile on our Season Ticker.

Two winless clubs in the relegation zone and an unconvincing Newcastle side are to come before things turn sour, with Chelsea facing none of the current bottom five between Gameweeks 10-18.

The Clarets and the Blades are the two worst attacks in the Premier League so far this season, with each scoring just three goals apiece.

Steve Bruce’s side have also looked toothless going forward, with no side having had fewer shots on target.

Four clean sheets in the last five matches in all competitions has hinted at a bit of a sea change for Chelsea, with new recruits Thiago Silva (£5.5m), Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) and Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) having the desired effect on a previously troubled defence.

At the other end, the Blues are now finally at full strength after an injury-interrupted start to 2020/21 and we’ll surely see a return to a more attacking set-up at Turf Moor on Saturday after the safety-first approach at Old Trafford in Gameweek 6.

ALSO CONSIDER

West Bromwich Albion (ful | TOT | mun | SHU | CRY | new), like so many clubs featured in this piece, have a mixed bag of games, with the double-header against Spurs and Manchester United the obvious negative.

Their other four opponents in the next six Gameweeks are all in the bottom half for goals scored, however, with Fulham and Sheffield United the only two top-tier sides yet to keep a Premier League clean sheet this season.

The Baggies have looked a lot more solid (against admittedly limited attacks) in the last two Gameweeks and their fixtures rotate very well with West Ham’s up until Christmas, for those nostalgic managers finding the allure of a romantic Branislav Ivanovic (£4.5m) pick hard to resist.

Top-of-the-table Everton, an improving Southampton and a Chelsea side finally nearing full strength are next up for Newcastle United (EVE | sou | CHE | cry | avl | WBA), an awkward trio of matches that undermines their lofty position in our Season Ticker.

Look beyond that though and there are some more appealing fixtures for the Magpies’ backline, with Palace, West Brom and Fulham (who Steve Bruce’s side face in Gameweek 14) hardly setting the world alight with their attacking play so far in 2020/21.

Those three teams are, as it happens, also in the bottom three for expected goals conceded, too.

Looking ahead to our next piece over the November international break, expect to see Manchester City (shu | LIV | tot | BUR | FUL | mun) feature more prominently as we gear up for their mouth-watering fixture swing in Gameweek 10.

THE WEAK

Fulham 

Sharp rescues blunt Blades as Mitrovic suffers nightmare outing

Next six: WBA | whu | EVE | lei | mci | LIV

A Gameweek 7 clash with fellow Premier League new boys West Bromwich Albion will likely represent the last hurrah for Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.8m) in many Fantasy teams, for those managers who didn’t sell him long ago.

Fulham’s schedule is appalling from next week onwards, with four clubs scoring at a rate of two+ goals per game to come in Gameweeks 8-12 – the one exception being Manchester City, who will surely be back to their destructive best sooner rather than later.

Frankly, little more needs to be written on the matter. Some clubs, like West Ham, have been able to ride out a tough fixture run but the Cottagers, bottom of the table, winless and without a clean sheet despite a relatively favourable opening run of games, have “avoid” written all over them in the medium term at the very least.

BURNLEY

Pieters at right-back as Burnley reveal Bardsley's self-isolation

Next six: CHE | bha | CRY | mci | EVE | ars

While Fulham won’t be giving their upcoming opponents any nightmares, a streetwise Burnley side may be a tougher prospect.

The Clarets’ forthcoming fixture run, which includes meetings with attack-minded sides such as Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton, is enough to deter fresh investment in the likes of Nick Pope (£5.5m), despite a decent-looking double-header either side of the international break.

Sean Dyche’s side could still have a big say in FPL matters, however, with their defence starting to look more like their old selves since the October international break.

We indeed saw a free-scoring Spurs side struggle to break down their opponents at Turf Moor in Gameweek 6 and, over the course of the season, no Premier League side has allowed fewer big chances than Pope and co.

ALSO CONSIDER

Is a sea of red on the Season Ticker enough to put managers off Leeds United (LEI | cry | ARS | eve | che | WHU)?

All of the Whites’ next six opponents are currently ranked 12th or above, with Leicester, Arsenal and West Ham among the three best sides in the division from a defensive perspective.

But then that was also true of Aston Villa before Patrick Bamford (£5.9m) butchered Dean Smith’s side in the Midlands, with Marcelo Bielsa’s boys having previously gone toe to toe with last season’s top two and taken points off Manchester City.

Sheffield United (MCI | che | WHU | wba | LEI | sou) have neither form nor fixtures on their side over the next five Gameweeks (and possibly beyond), with the exception of the trip to West Brom in November.

So defensively solid in 2019/20, the Blades have yet to keep a clean sheet this season and face tough upcoming tests: Chelsea, West Ham and Leicester have all scored two goals per match or more, while Manchester City are long overdue a big win.

Finally, a cautionary word on two teams who will feature more prominently in this piece for all the wrong reasons when we revisit the fixture list over the international break.

The short-term outlook is positive for Wolverhampton Wanderers (CRY | lei | SOU | ars | liv | AVL) and Tottenham Hotspur (BHA | wba | MCI | che | ARS | cry), with the former enjoying a winnable next two matches at Molineux and the latter having perhaps the best pair of Gameweek 7/8 fixtures.

Beyond that, though, are more daunting schedules, with both sides facing six of last season’s top eight from Gameweeks 9-16 – that truly will be a test of form versus fixtures for the likes of Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m).

    United & Chelsea attackers are seducing into buying them me after those performances last night.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      What is your priority order?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I like Bruno & Rashford from United & Pulisic & Werner from Chelsea. But Martial, Havertz & Ziyech could be great options too.

        Still think it could be a little early too jump on them right now as they haven't been able to settle their first choice 11's. Although I'm sure the points are coming from them.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Yeah agreed about the best options from each. Chilwell will be the first I bring in this GW though.

          1. Steve The Spud
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Who are you bringing him in for mig ?

              Digne

  2. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    1 month, 2 days ago

    For United's good run starting GW9 who is the best attacking option:

    1) Bruno
    2) Martial
    3) Rashford

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Probably 3

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Seems to be coming back to form. Not too keen on Bruno with his regular goal involvement or Martial up top as the cheapest option?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I like Bruno and had him for the first three GWs. He will do well no doubt. Not so sure on Martial at that price though.

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Bruno for me

  3. Bruno Fernandes
      1 month, 2 days ago

      How far upfront was bruno when pogba was on the pitch yesterday? Was he dropping deep?

    • Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      My favorite defensive combination is Robbo-Chillwell-Dias that I can set and forget until GW38.

      Robbo - 1G 2A in 6 matches, pushing up as a left winger and very offensive.

      Chillwell - IMO he'll be the best value defender in the game. Lampard fullbacks are very attacking, Mendy over Kepa wins Chelsea 10+ points and the arrival of Silva is a massive boost for Chelsea defense.

      Dias - 5.5M for a nailed City CB is a bargain, he's a goal threat - 3G is the same as 6A - and we've kept 17+ CS for the past 3 seasons. The Laporte-Dias partnership should ensure this trend continues.

      However, it's very difficult to achieve this combination in my team w/o downgrading in offense which I don't wish to do. Robertson is my biggest concern, am I really comfortable paying 7M for a defender when I'm not even confident the clean sheets will come? CS first, attacking returns second. With VVD out it's a major concern and next GW vs City (A) could be the perfect time to ship him out.

      I love Dias however he stops me from having triple City attack and I have to consider if it's worth it with that dream fixture run. Sterling and Foden are locks, however I may wish to add a KDB or Aguero for major hauls and Dias ensures that won't be possible. As I write this having Dias seems to be the ideal option however I will need to carefully consider the drawbacks.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cresswell looks another great pick from next GW too

      2. Bruno Fernandes
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I would rather have kdb as a lock instead of sterling...

        • bench boost for every gamew…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Always hard to tell but 3 City attackers seems right now like a strange idea and having a def for that run is not wrong. But landscape is changing fast so could be a different situation then. Not sure i would think in set and fortet with 3 defenders, you need to be flexible in this game.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 2 days ago

            The idea is there for triple MCI attack, those fixtures are brilliant enough to justify it. Obviously I'm not moving for them yet but the potential is there so I will not rule it out.

            You're right, it's vital to be flexible but after 5 GWs I feel we've got a very good idea of which defenses will work and which won't. Keeping these three defenders, who I'm very confident with, will enable me to focus my transfers in midfield and attack - which I prefer - while having a run of steady, consistent returns from a high value defense.

        • Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I’d have 2 of those at most, a lot of value in 4.5 defenders this year imo

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Yeah, I can't get the offense I want if I have this defense. I suspect Robbo will be the expendable one, very expensive w/o VVD.

        • Rhinos
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Problem with Foden is how many of those games will he start? City have cl too and although they'll probably have already qualified someone's gotta play in them and Pep merges the lineups so it's not as if you can say Foden 1st or 2nd team

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 2 days ago

            I believe he'll start enough games to be worth it, he's been one of the best players for City so far and Pep loves him. Recalling how Mahrez was great value for 8.5M last season, Foden for 2M less works fine for me.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Just starting for those 4-0s, 5-0s can win him double figure hauls and that sort of potential isn't available anywhere else.

              1. Rhinos
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                I do like Foden but don't think he fits my structure unless Pulisic looks bad. Like the idea of holding the pool full backs as fixtures are as good as city's, hopefully Tiago will help the cs potential

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  I like Pulisic a lot, wish I could get him. Next three are excellent and once Chelsea attack clicks, they'll be phenomenal.

                  Not sure what to do with Liverpool defense myself, I'll give Robbo another GW against an Antonio-less West Ham. Fixtures are great for sure.

      3. davies
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Definitely eyeing up Barnes > Greenwood in a week or two

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Don’t think he’s nailed on unfortunately

      4. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Bowen and Foden will be this season's best budget midfielders.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Good shouts - I wonder if an injury to Antonio might hamper WHU’s attacking potential

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 2 days ago

            That's definitely a concern. Bowen is an unreal player though, his goalscoring stats are excellent and current underlying numbers are very good considering his tough fixture run. I'd like to partner him and Foden starting from next GW.

        1. Sanchit

        2 FT and 2.4 ITB...

        Thinking of doing Saiss + JRod to Chilwell and Rash...what do you think?

        Ryan Button
        Robbo Dallas Lamptey Saiss Ferguson
        Salah SOn Grealish JRod Soucek

          id get rid of Ferguson. Jrod and Saiss both good options this week

              depends if you've got plans for the money. If you do then maybe swap Ryan for Meslier as he's been pants

        Is Cresswell gonna be worth the extra 0.5 over Masuaku and Coufal?

        1. Over Midwicket
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Yes

          1. Rhinos
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            yep

          1 month, 2 days ago

          If they go back to playing 4 atb for the easier fixtures then he's probably worth extra money as Masuaku will probably be the one who loses his spot. I like Coufal for 0.5m saving though specially if continues playing wing back.

        4. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Yes because of set pieces

        Meslier
        TAA Coady Konsa
        Salah Fernandes Jorginho Mahrez
        DCL Maupay Kane

        Forster Lamptey Stephens Douglas

        2 FT FT, 0.0 itb

        What to do here ?

        1. Maupay >> Bamford (save 1FT)
        2. Jorginho Maupay >> Brewster Zaha

        Thanks all!

        1. Dirty Harry
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          If you go 2, that means you'll be starting one of Brewster/Stephens/Lamptey each week?
          I reckon Bamford transfer would be more balanced.

      15. Bruno Fernandes

            • 1 Year

            I’ve checked the heat maps and it looks like Bruno was still pretty far forward with Pogba on

              He didn’t drop deeper til Cavani came on for Pogba.

          3. Whats the Mata?
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Have a defense of:

            Semedo - Saiss** - Reece James** - Lamptey - Mitchell**

            Who would you take out for Chilwell this week?

            A. Reece James
            Or
            B. Saiss (subbed off last game and might lose his spot to Marcal at LWB. Will start Reece James assuming he starts at the weekend because Azpi started in the UCL)

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 2 days ago

              James will probably start this week so I’d ship Saiss first. James you’d want gone too though as he’s probably 2nd choice RB

              1. Whats the Mata?
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Yeah he's on my hit list too

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              That’s really tough - I think James will play the Burnley game and Saiss could be dropped for Marcal but to double up on Chelsea defence could be a bit much and James will always be a rotation risk as long as Azpi is fit

              1. Whats the Mata?
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Will get rid of James later too.

                  James to Cresswell next GW could be a good

            Is this worth a hit for a 2 week punt before a GW9 WC??

            Anyone looked at rotating adams and brewster? Shu and Sou are the names mentioned In rotational pairing
            With DCL this means you can have a monster mid field

              Brewster doesn’t look like he’s got his place in the team nailed down, would rather play Adams every week

                Barnes Havertz Salah Son

                A: Barnes (lee, WOL) >> Foden/6.6 mid..
                - barnes has blanked 3 times
                - will leave me with exact funds for Jimmy/Watkins >> Kane/Antonio next gw

                B: Jimmy >> Kane
                - Will then downgrade one of Barnes/James to fund Watkins > Antonio gw8

                C: Save FT and play mini WC next gw. However if I most likely going to bring in Kane next week as he will be highly captained, might as well bring him in this week?

                      Whenever I’ve watched Villa he looks a threat from set pieces. Targett doesn’t seem as attacking as previously, a bit of an injury/rotation concern and picks up a few YCs.
