Fixtures

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.

    Pogba on a FH as a differential? Or is he due a rest?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Prefer Cavani, Laca or Zaha for that price. Maybe even Mahrez

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Ole seems to rotate Pogba in and out depending on how deep he's going to defend

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Martial/Cavani is a better pick I'd say. If you want a mid, might work. He will get his rest in the FA Cup.

    4. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      nope to pogba... not even sure if his spot is sealed

  2. Chandler Bing

    Just woke up to the England lockdown news. Does it affect PL matches or are we continuing the same way as before?

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      The PL is continuing.

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Elite sport isn’t affected

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      All OK - at least for now

  3. Canarinha
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Something tells me Pogba is going to rise real soon in a couple of weeks.

    When Ole pushed Rashford to the right and Pog to the left wing he was really feeling it.

    If Pog continues to play on the left he will def flourish...just a hunch

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Not sure he's a guaranteed starter tbh

  4. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Worth a bb or too risky?? Will have 1FT, think I’m set on getting in KDB and captain.

    McCarthy Johnstone
    Lowton Dallas Robo Coufal Justin
    Salah Son Bruno Soucek Raphinia
    Vardy Adams Bamford

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I'd BB that

  5. have you seen cyan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Think I need to lose Trent after the double, what happened to him

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Got injured, came back . . .seems to have lost his mojo entirely. Hampering the team and Salah especially. I wouldn't be shocked to see him rested shorty.

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        This. He gave away possession 38 times in the 75 mins he was on the pitch. More than any other player in a game this season.

      2. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        He was hardly setting the world on fire pre-injury tbf.

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Yep, he's gone for me then too.

  6. House Frey Wedding Planner
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Anyone else thinking about doing a Son/Kane double up for gw19?

    Have a lot of value tied up in both and even if they only play once (against sheff utd) chances are they would still outscore most template double gameweek players

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I'm WCing so would only keep one. Probably Son

    2. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Ya think I'll hold both against the worst team in the league!

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Haven’t considered loads and don’t think we will but they’ll defo get something. And they’re fixtures after 19 are enough for me to keep them if I had

    4. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Do you think Son/Kane will score more than Salah? Cause it seems like KDB and Bruno are a must now.

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        I suppose that really is the key question.

        I'd guess Salah will score 10-15 points in gw19. If I was to bring him, then it most likely would be Kane coming out plus a -4 hit. I also think that if Spurs score at least 2 then one or both of Son/Kane will also score 10-15

  7. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    If you could only have one of Martial and Rashford in FPL long-term, who would have?

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Rash.

      Martial will be rotating with Cavani and have less minutes

    2. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Definitely Rashford

  8. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    top 3 strikers to have.. long term...?

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Bamford Ings Kane/Vardy

      1. Balls of Steel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Spot on..

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Bamford, Kane, and maybe Antonio if fit

    3. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Ings Vardy Bamford is what I'm aiming for

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Considering how much value there is in midfield & even defence I can't see past a front 2 of Bamford & Kane/Vardy at the mo.

    5. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Bamford Kane Ings

      If you want a set and forget front 3, that's it. Could get Vardy instead of Kane if you want a cheaper option.

  9. Balls of Steel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Couldn't sit on my hands any longer...did the Salah to KDB move!

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Nice one 🙂

    2. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Gonna be a popular one this week!

    3. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      still undecided, Salah is immense, only a few games ago got 16pts in 33 mins, Liverpool will have a point to prove

    4. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Planning to bring him back next week?

      1. Balls of Steel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yes, I think so. Had 2FT so went ahead and made the Salah to KDB move before price swings!

    5. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I’m just waiting for Kane to emerge unscathed tomorrow before I join you... still risky but a 0.2m swing looks likely

  10. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    KDB gonna continue up top?

    1. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Not sure.
      But his goal and assist were not purely because he played up top.
      Second striker/CAM is still his best position and probably will be there when one of Aguero/Jesus/Torres are fit.

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Idk but I want him and need him. He could’ve easy had another goal and assist. Best player in the league with Bruno. Don’t know why I ever moved him to Salah on my wc after going without Salah for so long. Always looks miles ahead

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        cant say i agree with all of that, one of best players in league yes, but City have struggled which has made him stutter. he also SHOULD not could have had another goal, he missed an easy chance there.

        i dont feel comfortable without Salah and if people are shipping him in my opinion it makes him more attractive. both may be needed.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          True, for me it’s either Vardy and son out or Salah out for kdb. And think that is pretty obvious 🙂 also much prefer city’s fixtures for a while after 19 than pools.

          1. OneDennisBergkamp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            yeh City fixtures look good now. hardest part of the season this for me!

    3. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Probably not but that wouldn't enter the equation for mine.

  11. Sanchit
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Already have 2 City (KDB and Cancelo).
    Who should be the third one?

    A. Sterling + United defender ( Maguire?! )
    B. Rashford + Dias

    1. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      B.

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      B

    3. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      B

  12. Gabbiadini
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Can I go without KDB owning Salah, Bruno, Son, Grealish, Kane and Vardy?
    Or is he essential?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Need him imo. Vardy, Grealish to KdB, Antonio.

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      No one is essential, personally I would prefer him over Kane or Vardy though.

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        same, but then i think i would have to go 352 and i dislike that formation on FPL

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Especially considering ESR at 4.4

          1. OneDennisBergkamp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            my midfield would be Grealish, Son, Bruno, KDB, Salah
            then I would probably go for Bamford, Ings/Antonio front 2

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        If I had a choice I would have him over a Vardy, but I can't afford the 1.4 difference.

  13. Pad Randa (The OG)
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Do we reckon Mitchell keeps his starting role? If not, whom would you shift him for, 4.5M or under?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      He keeps it imo

    2. Balls of Steel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      It's very unpredictable imo but at his price it's worth having him.

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      If he's your 5th defender, I'd keep regardless. If he's your fourth, Newcastle defender maybe.

  14. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Is 6 players enough for GW 18 or should I FH

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I have 9, hit takes me 10.
      I think 8 would be my cut off.

    2. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Unless they are all big hitters, I would FH

    3. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      And, do you forsee a better FH opportunity later on?

    4. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Depends on who the 6 are.
      City defender, KdB, Son/Kane, Bruno, Arsenal mid, Newcastle defense/Wilson - If you have these 6, there's a case for saving.

  15. RESULT

      I should work out how many times I would have got kicked out this year it would be a lot.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Only 5 times 🙂
        I actually thought is would be 6 or higher. Bit of a comeback in the last few weeks so the season might still end up ok.

    2. Rolls-Royce
      • 7 Years

        Time running out.

  17. Drogba Legend
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    I can get this team below for GW18 without using FH by dropping Robbo and 3.8 non-playing defender for a -4, thoughts?

    Formation 3-3-2

    x
    Cancelo - Dias - 5.3 defender
    KDB - Bruno - Dale Stephens - x
    Kane - Brewster - x

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      6 really plus 2 that are 1-2 pointers
      It might be enough but then you are looking at more hits to get some in for GW19.
      Overall it might be worth it if the FH later in the season works out.

  18. Esalman
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    The pool-palace match was an anomaly worthy of 2020, it seems in hindsight.

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Well at least pool scored 2 in that one 🙂

  19. Albrightondknight

    Salah is dropping like a stone should I just get Salah to Sterling done with 1 of my 2ft ?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I’d go kdb or keep Salah

        Sorry I should have said I have KDB already.
        This would be to have KDB Sterling and Dias for 18 And 19
        Plan was to lose Son for Salah in 19. Hokey pokey.

          Lose Salah over son for me 🙂 Sterling could be a sexy differential

            So I have Salah KDB and Son
            Plan Salah to Sterling this week

            For 19 the plan was Son goes to get Salah back in.
            I could not do that move as on current form Son might do more in one game that Salah in 2 but ownership probably makes it too risky. After 19 I will have 4 really expensive mids so Son will be back in for one of them at some stage and that will free up a chunk of change.

      I would. You plan to go without chips 18/19? or TC?

        No FH in 18 I have 7 decent ones plus Brewster and Bernardo.
        I can’t BB in 19. I am undecided on TC - Salah does not have the form. I would probably be tempted by Sterling over KDB if I was going to risk the TC.
        Thanks I think I will just get that move done. It’s not like me to have 2 FT anyway 🙂

    Surely Fulham's games go through in GW19? Will have triple United and Areola for those games.

      Will get a better idea when their FA Cup game happens/doesn't happen this weekend.

      Will be FH'ing, so wouldn't mind a postponement as well 😉

      Fulham is going to be the immune team after all this

    Need to trade one gw18 player for another to be able to get a playing GK (McCarthy>Leno/Martinez?). Which move looks better to fund that with 2Fts? Will FH 19 and ideally a player with decent fixtures mid-term would be priority.

    A) Zaha>Saka
    B) DCL>wilson
    C) Justin>Clark
    D) Brewster>4.3 fodder (Will still have front 7 of gw 18 players)

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Maybe B

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Martinez for the GK.
      If Digne is back soon, I'd keep DCL. So, A.

    Son and Kane to Salah and Ings for DGW ?

      If no -4 then looks fine, consider Antonio?

    2. WE GO FOR IT

      Looks good.

    3. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I'd just do Kane to Ings

  23. RESULT

    FH team
    Steffen

    Bruno son sakha grealish kdb
    Kane martial

    Please pick apart

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Think Steffen is a waste of a city spot on FH.
      Would go Leno or Darlow for GK and try and get Cancelo or another city mid (Gundogan perhaps)
      Not sure on Martial gametime but slim pickings for FWDS in 18

    Well well that Zambian witch doctor is so far coming true. He'll be blanking in both GW19 fixtures then if the full 5 blanks are to happen.

    Salah to KDB surely?

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Heaps will be doing this.
      Definitely for GW18, then consider if its worth getting Salah back for the double or if there are better options nearer the time.

    Can't remember the last time I had 2FTs in a GW and I have to be patient and not use them for over a week!

  27. tc93
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Got 2FT, 1.0ITB, planning on riding out gw18 with 6 or so players- then using TC in gw19. Any moves to prioritise?:

    1) Ayling —> Coufal
    2) Ayling —> Stones
    3) other?

    Team:
    Martinez
    Robertson / KWP / Dias
    Salah / Fernandes (c) / Son / Soucek / KDB
    Adams / Bamford

    Bench: Button, Ayling, Michell, Davis.

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      May as well do 2 for GW18 and you'll still have 2FTs for 19

    So if tied in the cup seems it is most goals scored and then least conceded.

    Goals conceded. Is that applied to just your defenders?
    Would seem to be a bit unfair if you have 4 defenders playing and they have 3.
    Or soes it mean goals conceded by your entire team?

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Fairly sure someone asked this on an earlier page and it factors in the whole team

      1. Gleys11
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks for the reply, i will scan back a few more pages to see if any other info.

        1. Boberella
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Goals scored factors whole team, so it wouldn't make sense not to have the same criteria for goals conceded

          1. Gleys11
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 19 days ago

            True. Looks like goals scored is how may actually scored by your 11 individual players rather than the team that they play for.
            And goals conceded is how many conceded in total by the team they play for.
            So looks like my friend went through by conceding 15 to 16 🙂
