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.

      Is this FH team good to go? Or ist the Gündogan and the de Gea pick too risky?

      de Gea (Steer)
      Dias, Tierney, Wan-Bissaka (Dier) (Mitchell)
      De Bruyne, Fernandes, Son, Saka, Gündogan
      Kane, Lacazette (Brewster)

      Thank you!

          You don't need Dier as sub. De Gea is fine, won't pick Gundo though.

            There was a bullet point on a rolling news feed I saw last night after Boris cameo that 'elite sport has not been affected'.

              Of course practically this depends on how secure the club bubbles are when disease is widespread, so doubtless there will be more postponements and individuals missing.

          Rashford or Sterling? Why?

            • 4 Years

            sterling looks like he has cemented his place... sterling potential looks higher than rashford

            1. Sanchit
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 17 hours ago

              Exactly! But will always have that doubt whether he'll play 90 in all three games

          2. Pukki Blinders

            Sterling due to fixtures

              • 5 Years

              Looks like he doesn't have his shooting boots on though?

                • 1 Year

                He should come good, but still rather KDB Salah Bruno over him

                1. Sanchit
                  • 5 Years
                  4 months, 17 hours ago

                  Have all 3 already. The 4th mid would be either Rashford or Sterling.

                  ( No Kane or Vardy)

          Free hit or wildcard?

            Its great analysis though. Picking out the ending sentence and saying its obvious is nitpicking imo.

              He has been terrible since many weeks. Thats why i'm always annoyed of owning him this year, he is just not playing like a 12.5m player.

                • 1 Year

                He returned in 7 games in a row before his recent blanks, what more do you want?

                  After Crystal Palace game he was Essential and the best fpl asset ever. Funny how thoughts sway so soon in FPL. Having said that im getting Salah out for Sterling.

                Watching him as my captain vs WHM, SHU, WBA was a terrible experience.

                  Yeah bit annoying, he’s hauled in the big games this year that we don’t want to captain him in

                  Same way people ditched KdB and now want him back at all costs.

                  I have no issue riding his lean spell, just wish I hadn’t captained him all three!

                  I don't think people doubt his quality as a fantasy asset. I'm going to free hit him back in for 19 but wouldn't plan on captaining for a run of fixtures from 20 onwards - I'll be getting him back when fixtures pick up (also dependant on Pool's form) 12.5 is a lot to have tied up in a player that you're not captaining imo.

                    Don’t need to captain him to own him though. He has performed well during the tougher fixtures this season so expect the harder fixtures should be no problem for him.

                    But you’re right it all depends on Pool’s form

                      Suppose the argument is that 12.5 could be better invested if you're not captaining during a period of tough fixtures - Easier decision to make when he hasn't returned in 3 GWs. No doubt they will fight to retain their title so I'll probably be being him back sooner rather than later.

                          Exactly. At 12.6m 3 blanks in a row is devastating. And at the moment quite a few budget players doing a good job, I know Salah will come back though just when I get rid of him he’ll haul lol

                        Sounds like you’re chasing points instead of predicting future points

                          i am really chasing points though. from 100k down to 470k. frustrating i can say.

                      I think most who are not playing FH are doing something like.
                      Salah -> X
                      Son -> Salah next week

                      The ones with FH are just not having him for this week?

                          I’m actually considering Mané now at 11.9m, Salahs premium price I’m expecting at least a goal or assist every game tbh, with the odd blank but definitely not in a row, if Jota wasn’t injured I wouldn’t even have Salah or Mané

                              More chance he gets injured before the second game

                              Will John Stones be keeping his place for these good upcoming fixtures for Man City or is he going to get replaced by Laporte?

                                i think quite safe if laporte is still injured?

                                  Laporte isn't injured. He just hasn't been first-choice.

                                  Ake is an alternate

                                  So is Fernandinho

                                  Especially against Buddikha opponents

                                Stones looks safe at the moment. Has formed an unstoppable partnership with Dias.

                                He's nailed. Ake and Laporte are both out

                                Stones is nailed as anything atm IMO.
                                He's playing awesome. And if anything he's RCB. Laporte if comes in will come in at the expense of Dias (which won't happen)

                              Trent Alexander-Arnold gave the ball away 38 TIMES in Liverpool's defeat at Southampton - the most by a player in a Premier League match this season.

                              Salah with 3 blanks in a row, Liverpool struggling to score goals even against woeful WBA - suddenly I'm looking at removing Salah for KDB.

                                I figure I'm doing that anyways because I consider KDB the best captain for 18 and he's near-essential that week. The question is how well do I see Mo faring during the DGW if I want to get him back. Liverpool get a big break though, so I'm sure that'll help them improve their performances.

                                  Looks best route atm. Pool playing Utd and Spurs too. Have carried Son & Kane whiole season and there's zero reasons I'd rid either of them. A lot could happen before the DGW though!

                                    Traoré and El Ghazi the Villa assets I’d look at now for goals

                                  KDB TC in DGW19 a good shout? This article tries to say otherwise but mancity look back in form and play Palace who lost 7-0 to Liverpool.

                                    Could be good, just personally like to use my TC at the latest possible time, so in the very last DGW normally. Would prefer to use BB this DGW but I guess if your team isnt set up for that then sure go ahead with the TC.

                                      Cheers! The early TC last season with Salah worked out very well for me. This time of the season there's much less rotation risk and no CL matches which is why im considering it.

                                    i'm planning to do so after ditching Salah for KDB this GW

                                    however, do you think Salah is essential for double home against MUN+BUR ? cause I need to sacrifice Son and couple of hits to buy him back or just let Salah go and go for other DGW-ers ?

                                  For GW18 :
                                  Salah,Forster to KDB, Martinez (-4)

                                  Gives me this team for 18

                                  Martinez
                                  Cancelo Stones Holding
                                  KDB(C) Son Grealish
                                  Fernandes Riedewald
                                  DCL

                                  Then for 19 BB, I can do Riedewald, DCL to Soucek/Raphinha, Ings for a hit

                                  Gives me this BB team for 19

                                  Martinez Mendy
                                  Cancelo Stones Robertson Coufal Holding
                                  KDB Fernandes Son Grealish Raphinha/Soucek
                                  Ings Bamford Rodrigo

                                  I know it's a massive risk going without Salah but does this sound like a good plan?

                                    Wouldnt take the hit fot the goalkeeper, just salah > Kdb is fine

                                      I usually don't but that gives me a playing keeper for 18+ a doubler for BB...
                                      Also I wanna lose Mendy and get Martinez post the DGW anyway and Martinez will keep rising, his fixtures are good after GW19 as well

                                        Fair if it fits your long term plan! GL

                                      And if you need to take -8 for 15 players for BB then maybe consider if there might be a better time to play the BB

                                    Its great idea I also done salah to kdb for now. I think you should avoid dcl to dgwker Ings, as upside is less and Ings will be injured again and again and you need nailed fit players now with covid delays

                                      Yeah that move can be avoided. It's just that I don't like DCL moving forward either with current form...
                                      Martial also an option but a rotation risk, I guess I'll have a clearer picture at that time

                                  Do you guys think 8 blank gw players are enough? Free hit will basically be worth Kane+Cancelo+Holding. Rest I am happy with core of son kdb bruno grealish dias

                                    I am going with 8 + Brewster, Mitchell and Lamptey so pretty much 8 + maximum 5 points.

                                  For DGW 19:
                                  A)Cancelo + Salah
                                  OR,
                                  B) Robbo + Sterling

                                    A if have kdb, B if not

                                  From TC salah in gw 19 to removing him for Kdb. Looks like I have lost it in these crazy covid suspensions!

                                  Do Salah, Firmino and Rodrigo > KDB, Marital and Watkins for - 8

                                  to get this for GW18

                                    Dont see much upside with Martial (rotation risk) and Watkins (tough fixture). Definitely not worth the -8..
                                    Just Salah > KDB imo, and go with 8 players

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

                                  Team:

                                    6 seems quite low. I'd free hit or look at bringing that number closer to 8 or 9

                                    Bad - no midfield cleverness

                                    Also - Firmino, Salah, and Mane don’t play together very much

                                    Also - Robo delivered a cross that literally hit Firmino is the leg. It just bounced off.

                                        Firmino, Salah and Mané definitely not combining atm

                                    Hello everyone, quick question

                                    If I make my 2 free transfers now and then use my free hit. Will those transfers take effect the following week or does the free hit wipe them out? Thanks
