When will the next FPL Double Gameweeks take place this season?

Fantasy Premier League managers should expect an abnormally high number of Double Gameweeks this season.

And keeping an eye on when these might crop up is important for those looking to make the most of their chips – especially the Triple Captain.

As a result of the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the 2020/21 campaign is the most compressed in modern memory.

Due to a later-than-usual start, there is more pressure on the clashes between league and cup commitments for top-flight teams. This has given schedulers less time to fit in the usual postponements and, of course, we have seen COVID-19 itself put paid to several additional fixtures too.

But when will these inevitable Double Gameweeks surface? And, more importantly, is there anything Fantasy managers can do to pre-empt them and take the rearrangements in their stride?

In this article, we will look at the three specific Premier League clubs involved in the EFL Cup semi-finals, considering the possible scheduling headaches in store for each of them.

Before dive in, it is worth pointing out that these scenarios are not predictions. In each case, they illustrate the fixture pile-up that would result from continued success for each team on all cup fronts in Europe, the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

This should help clarify where Double Gameweeks could feature, as things stand. Further opportunities may open up, depending on the configuration and timing of future Cup defeats though.

The most recent rearrangements involved Burnley v Manchester United and Manchester City v Aston Villa, which have gone into Blank Gameweek 18 and Double Gameweek 19 respectively.

There are currently a further four matches awaiting date reassignments, each of them postponed because of COVID-19 outbreaks.

  • Aston Villa v Newcastle (Gameweek 11)
  • Everton v Manchester City (Gameweek 16)
  • Tottenham Hotspur v Fulham (Gameweek 16)
  • Burnley v Fulham (Gameweek 17)

Barring coordinated early FA Cup exits or some scheduling wizardry, it is unlikely that any of these fixtures will be reassigned before Gameweek 23.

Manchester City

Matches to be rescheduled:

  • Gameweek 16: Everton (away)

Future possible Cup-related postponements:

  • Gameweek 29 (FA Cup quarter-finals): Wolves (home)
  • Gameweek 32 (FA Cup semi-finals): Aston Villa (away)
  • Gameweek 33 (EFL Cup final): Southampton (home)
  • Gameweek 37 (FA Cup final): Brighton (away)

On the assumption Manchester City continue to progress on all fronts this season, there are currently five available midweek slots to accommodate any rescheduled matches. These are Gameweeks 24, 26, 27, 32 and 37.

Gameweeks 32 and 37 look unlikely to become a Double for Pep Guardiola’s men as both the Aston Villa and Brighton matches can drop into the immediately subsequent midweek slots if rearrangements need to happen.

We will know whether or not Manchester City are competing in Gameweek 33’s EFL Cup final a few days after Gameweek 17.

The midweek following the final is set aside for the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. 

Given the last-sixteen ties will only be completed during midweek of Gameweek 28, any postponement for Southampton’s league trip to the Etihad Stadium fixture would likely be arranged early to form either a Double Gameweek 24, 26 or 27.

Gameweek 29 is scheduled to coincide with the FA Cup quarter-finals and immediately proceeds the March international break. 

As the quarter-final ties will be determined following the fifth-round matches during the midweek of Gameweek 23, any rescheduling of Manchester City’s home game against Wolves in Gameweek 29 could drop into Gameweek 26 or 27.

The postponed trip to Everton from Gameweek 16 should also feature in either Gameweek 24, 26 or 27.

As a result, continued progress on all Cup fronts could result in four Double Gameweeks for Manchester City between Gameweeks 19 and 27.

This possible scenario illustrates how little room for manoeuvre there is for schedulers. A further COVID-19 postponement for Guardiola’s men could foreseeably force a compressed midweek Double Gameweek toward the end of the campaign, or even delay the end of the season for some clubs.

Manchester United

Fernandes scores again as new Pogba role pushes Rashford to the right

Manchester United matches to be rescheduled:

  • None (at time of writing)

Future possible Cup-related postponements:

  • Gameweek 29 (FA Cup quarter-finals): Crystal Palace (away)
  • Gameweek 32 (FA Cup semi-finals): Burnley (home)
  • Gameweek 33 (EFL Cup final): Leeds (away)
  • Gameweek 37 (FA Cup final): Fulham (home)

On the assumption Manchester United continue to progress on all cup fronts, there are just three available midweek slots to accommodate any rescheduled matches. 

This reduced number compared to their City rivals is due to the extra knockout round the Europa League features over the Champions League. 

The available midweek slots in question are in Gameweeks 26, 32 and 37.

Therefore, progression on all fronts for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s in-form squad will likely lead to a compressed Double Gameweek toward the end of the season, perhaps in Gameweek 37.

Tottenham Hotspur

Kane and Son proving difficult to sell ahead of Double Gameweek 19

Spurs matches to be rescheduled:

  • Gameweek 16: Fulham (home)

Future possible Cup-related postponements:

  • Gameweek 29 (FA Cup quarter-finals): Southampton (home)
  • Gameweek 32 (FA Cup semi-finals): Everton (away)
  • Gameweek 33 (EFL Cup final): Fulham (away)
  • Gameweek 37 (FA Cup final): Aston Villa (home)

Like Manchester United, Spurs’ involvement in the Europa League could hamper their domestic scheduling. 

And with their Gameweek 16 match also requiring rearranging, the result could rise to five rescheduled fixtures, with only three remaining midweek slots to accommodate them: Gameweeks 26, 32 and 37. 

This is another scenario that could lead to a compressed midweek Double Gameweek toward the end of the season.

I hope these example scenarios have whetted your appetite for future Double Gameweeks. 

It must be said that Premier League schedulers have their work cut out for them right now and will have even more on their hands in the coming weeks and months. 

The question some Fantasy managers should be asking themselves in light of this information is: will you still be playing your Triple Captain chip in Double Gameweek 19? 

It is clear that 2020/21 has the potential to feature more Double Gameweeks than any other previous season. The chances of the perfect moment to deploy the Triple Captain arising at some point between now and the end of the campaign are certainly high indeed.

        A manager of a professional football team winning a football match and crying is not a normal reaction.

          Beating the defending champions in not very normal times, the sane week your family gets covid, is not normal circumstances.
          I did also say "human", not normal.

    2. EmreCan Hustle

      Probably the fight they put up to come up with the win without a key GK, CB, DM and FWD.

      1. Daniel - WC Active

      How was your Gameweek?

      Were any of your players benched? Did you get any injuries? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?

      Tell us your tales of joy and woe from Gameweek 17, here:

      1. Only a Hazard of time

        Pope (Didn't Play)
        Maguire (1)
        Dallas (1)
        Zouma (1)
        Coufal (6) - Benched

        Standard.

        Joy: There is now a week off FPL - too much of it over the Christmas period with the drip feeding of games.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Bit of both for me, 98 points and a rank rise from 1.2mil to 645k, which I'm obviously delighted with. But also got Soucek and KWP on the bench!

        1. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Crikey. You had a blinder this GW lad

      4. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Smooth. Brought in KDB for Salah.

        Rough. Late goals to lose clean sheets for Dias and Justin.

      5. EmreCan Hustle
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Apart from the Stones conceding a last minute goal, not much to complain about.

        Did KDB to Son(C). Not much came from it 😛

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Soucek and Coufal on the bench. Adams and Taylor no shows 🙂

      8. Il Capitano
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Rob Holding nabbed twice as many points as my entire defence including goalkeeper combined . Dallas autosub over Coufal. Not my week.

          • 8 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Son Captain.

          Forster on for Fabianski

          Brewster for Adams

          Stones for Dunne

          79 points

        • Do I Not Like Orange
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          66 all out, not bad, not great. I had Forster, Soucek, Coufal & Mitchell on my bench for a total of 29pts. 3 playing defenders + GK scored 6pts between them 🙁

          Least I got Soucek points for Adams.

        • Rash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          73 points son captain
          Double city defence
          Next round of cup
          100k rank boost

        • Buck The Trent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          93 pts.. accumulating Spurs and Arsenal players to prepare for BGW18 without chip proved to be a great move (Kane Son Saka Holding)

          OR 220K to 80K

        • HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Sold KDB for Rashford
          Had the choice of any Arsenal defender and bought in Bellerin
          Double MCI defence, Coufal on the bench
          Played McCarthy ahead of Martinez
          Rival ended up with double SOU defence + JWP

          On the bright side scraped through the cup against a rival with double Burnley defence and no bench

        • Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Overall smooth with 81 points.

          I suppose buying Cancelo was a smooth, since I sold Lewis, who didn't play. However...

          Rough: I overlooked Tierney (18 pts) due to the upcoming double Gameweek, despite being a fan of Arsenal players this season, having owned Holding, Bellerin, Saka, Aubameyang and currently Gabriel and Saka (again)! I'll likely sell Gabriel or TAA for him this week instead.

          The main roughs, then, were the last-minute Hudson-Odoi goal, which wiped my double clean sheet from Cancelo and Stones.

          And then, sitting on 81 points, the final act of the gameweek was my cup opponent getting Forster off the bench for a total of 83 points! Knocked out in the first round as usual! 😀

          Smooth: The greatest smooth in my eyes was a 4th attacking return from Saka in the 4 GWs I've owned him.

          Also very pleased with returns from Son (captain), KDB, Bruno, Grealish and Martial, who I've owned since GW2!

          That puts me up to a whopping 2,168,989 OR from 2,679,020 according to LiveFPL, having lost some ground today. But I also get to feel pretty smug going into the next two GWs with a team that's similar to many people's FH teams and with 3FTs to get 9-11 good double GW players for GW19 too.

          Things are looking up 🙂

          Roughs:
          Leeds attacking double-up blanks
          Dias CS last-minute wipeout
          Salah and DCL blanks

          Smooths:
          Kane (c), KdB, Bruno hauls
          Mee's no-show brought Coufal's CS off the bench
          Forster-McCarthy GW10 combination vindicated

          GW15 --> sold Chilwell (1), bought Matip (7)
          GW16 --> sold Matip (0), bought Mee (15)
          GW17 --> sold Taylor (0), bought Holding (10)
          Three consecutive defensive transfers = net +31 points

          GW18 --> Looking for a Douglas replacement...

        • SomeoneKnows
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Rough:
          - Chelsea's last minute goal cost me clean sheet points from both Cancelo & Stones
          - Left 23 points on my bench from Soucek, Bednarek & Forster

          Smooth:
          - Captained Kane
          - Managed to progress in the cup thanks to Robertson's yellow card and failure to get a clean sheet

        • The Train Driver
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          101 points

          Smooth: this gw
          Rough: all gws before this one

          Pressed the Triple Captain button by mistake. How is that possible? Anyhow, fortunately captain was on Kane so I suppose it could have been worse. 98pts for the game week and moved from 1.8 million to 950k. Result. After weeks of postponed games and holding onto 2 city and 2 spurs players, that green arrow feels like a golden arrow. These postponements have killed me. I hate this game.

          Rough

          - Dias clean sheet wiped out in the dying seconds
          - McCarthy not playing meaning I had no keeper, and then Southampton keeping a clean sheet against Liverpool.
          - Salah, Firmino, DCL and Bamford getting me a total of eight points between them
          - Best of the lot this. Had Foden since gameweek three, got a total of 22 points from him. Finally had no other problems to deal with so got rid of him this week just in time to watch him rack up a fourteen pointer.

          Smooth

          - Still somehow ended up on 71 points with Cresswell off the bench for Taylor, Walker-Peters, Soucek, Son and a decent captain in Bruno.

          Anyone else have 2 keepers who normally play and neither played?

          Rough: Pope & McCarthy both missed out, so no GK. Dias & Stones double CS wipe-out in 92nd minute.
          Smooth: Soucek off the bench for Adams allowed me to squeak through in the cup and get a slight green arrow.

          Rough
          played WC and bought and started Fabianski with the dgw in mind only to see him injured in the warm up, also like many lost double City clean sheet

          Smooth
          sub Martinez only scoring 3pts less than what Fabianski would have got in the end, also Holding, Kane and my first captain success in 8 weeks thanks to Son helping me to a decent 73pts, with my team now well set up for 18 & 19 thanks to the WC

        • dark91
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Brought in Bellerin instead of Tierney for KWP

          Not only did both Tierney and KWP return, Bellerin got me a beautiful 0 😀

            Stones - 2 points, Dallas - 1 point (Bench Bednarek - 7 points, Dier - 6 points)
            Salah captain fail
            Lost cup tie by 2 points where my opponent had all players available.

            Smooth: Son (c), switched captaincy from Salah

            Rough - transfer in this week was Fabianski. McCarthy the other goalkeeper on the bench.

            My defence was Zouma (1) Robertson (1) Justin (1) following a Reguillon no show.

            The only thing that saves me from a massive drop was Son (c) and Kane.

            ROUGH

            If you think you've had a bad GW look at this guy in one of my mini-leagues: https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/4727227/event/17

            They ended up with 21(-8)=13 points. He had Soucek 2nd sub with 11 points, but only 1st sub Brewster(1 point) is coming of the bench.

            The 8 point hit consisted of Taylor(Would have been Soucek for 11points)/Son(13 points)/Kane(12 points) -> Maguire(1 point)/Rashford(2 points)/Martial(6 points).

            So in total, the 8 point hit cost this player 35 points and their GW score of 13 points sent them absolutely plummeting down the rankings.

            Have you ever seen a worst GW?

              Anyone having Brewster on their bench before Soucek deserves all they get!

            Rough: Salah captain, No Spurs, 20 bench points. 5 captain blanks on the spin.

            Smooth: KDB finally gets points, started Soucek (but everyone got his points anyway on the end), Holding fluke 10 points after bringing him in, Mitchell getting back in the team (although was one of the bench players), DCL blank, Justin blank, no FPL for over a week, Salah will be a differential in the double when I triple captain him.

              Rough: Cancelo CS lost, Captain Salah Blank, no Fabianski.

              Smooth: Tierney! Doubly sweet as an Arsenal fan, won cup game despite oppo captaining Kane, unexpected 6 points from fodder sub Forster.

              Rough; McCarthy and Pieters not playing, no sub keeper and missed out on the Saints clean sheet. Put KWP third sub as I'd brought in Mane for KdB on wildcard and expected a hammering! 11 points down there and now I'm 0.1 short of a second keeper if I want to bench boost DGW19 with the fixtures changing. I thought Salah & Mane would be my edge as a TC pick but now it's going to cost me. I hate wildcards!

              Smooth; Kane(c), Soucek, Bruno, Coufal returning 61 and a small red from 348k to 382k. Come out of Xmas 300k up so not all bad.

              Rough: Brought Bellerin

              Smooth: Cresswell & Soucek owner so that goal was pure joy

              Smooth my midfield and attack getting 58 points Kane captain

              Rough my defence and goalkeeper 5 points Macarty 0 Robbo 1 Dias and Stones both 2 points by conceding in the last minute.

              Losing my City CS with 40 seconds to go. Losing double Liverpool CS within 3 mins!
              Forster would have come in for me but I moved him to Johnston for the DGW.

              66 points and 3k rise to 108k, so I'm happy with that at this stage of the season.

              Rough: Dias CS wipeout, Watkins blank

              Smooth: Kane (C) + Son + Dier bringing in the points, Holding Holding the fort, 80 points.

              My rival/buddy:

              GW14: Bought Matip & James
              GW16: Sold Lamptey and James for Rhys Williams & Reguilon
              GW17: Sold Matip & Zouma for Cancelo & Tarkowski (for a hit)

              Cancelo lost his CS in the 92nd minute (2pts)
              Tarwowski's match was cancelled
              Rhys Williams didn't play
              Reguilon didn't play after breaching covid regulations
              He also has McCarthy in goal (tested positive) with no backup

                GW 14 transfers were part of a hit too (three transfers for -4)

              100 points exactly and a gw rank of 3600. Went from 630k to 230k.

              Brought in Holding last week, for no other reason than he was cheap and it allowed me to bring in kane, and he's got me 19 points off the bench in 2 weeks.
              and also had tierney already, Kdb, son, kane(c) for a total of 5 double digit hauls, as well as grealish and dier chipping in. Best week I've ever had

              Rough
              - Wellbeck, Matip, Reguilon, Romeu & McCarthy all non starters

              Smooth
              - still managed to get 10 starters and 67 points with Meslier, Targett & Kilman helping out with 4 points off the bench.
              - Kane, Son C, Bruno & Coufal taking the strain

              Rough for me. Benched Holding 10 and Soucek 11 in favour of Bellerin who got me 0 and Stones who got me 2 🙁

              Smooth: Martial in for Wilson.
              Rough: needed one of Robbo and Salah to not blank to stay in the cup. Didn't happen.

              I don't know if it counts as a smooth, but I just won my FPL cup tie due to the virtual coin toss. Both teams with 74 pts, same amount of goals scored and conceded. I feel for my indonesian opponent, 2021 being as tough as 2020 for him. Me, I'm extatic !

              40 points. Soucek first on bench. KdB to Mane. Rough: everything without Grealish, Coufal and Bruno.

            70 all out... Absolutely fine. Avoided all the banana peels in that final match.
            FH done for GW18, and will likely take -4 for GW19 to ensure maximum Boost!
            Now, let's see how Spurs line up for tomorrow (Alli starts I imagine, as does My Cousin Vinni)

                Nice! Annoyed I put Dallas ahead of coufal on the bench

                  Its normal. I guess you were betting that Dallas might have attacking returns:)

                    Exactly. Fancied a few goals in spurs Leeds

                      Ledds should had a couple of goals.

            a. KDB
