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.

      Depends on the team. Manchester teams have now fixture on bgw and dgw. So it is possible to WC good team for both game weeks.

        if i already have a good DGW team setup for 19, would you recommend sticking with the FH plan ?

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      8 months, 23 days ago

      For me I’m doing it because I’m in limbo a bit, don't have a team for next week and injuries have ruined my bb 19 without a -12 or so

      I also have no city players and a horrible rank so want to take a bit of a risk 🙂

    Don't you think that Spurs will have a difficult time versus AVL(A) ?
    Not sure if I should double up on both Son and Kane

    1. Peter Ouch

    Who's doing a Salah hokey-cokey between BGW18 and DGW19?

    Tempted to do it with Rashford, but not sure its worth it for an extra hit.

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I am, Salah to KDB, then losing Kane for Salah (-4). I think it's worth it.

    2. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      feel it's only worth it if you need a GW18 captain, I do so I'll be doing it.

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Started this week with KDB to Rashford - that didn't work out 🙁
      Now doing Salah to KDB for gw18
      Then likely to be Son (or Rashford) to Salah for gw19

    5. Bushwhacker

      Team value hit not worth it for me.

  12. Bielsa's Blue Bucket

    Salah & DCL -- Sterling & Martial for free? Well give me 11 next week and will bring the rested Salah back for the DGW

    Hey guys. Just watched the news here in canada. Noticed England going into nation wide lockdown. Does this include the Premier League?

    1. Phil's Stamps

      At the moment, no.

          I think 'getting act together' is not something most Brits would use for the current administration, unless you're referring to a circus act.

          In the announcement last night they said elite sporting events like the Premier league will continue.

  14. Phil's Stamps
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Really stumped about what to do for the DGW. Initially was going for just TC but with those extra fixtures dropping in I'll be leaving doublers on the bench and am close to a decent BB squad:

    A) TC, will have to leave Zouma & Coufal on the bench. (-4 to bring back in Mo).
    B) BB, Bench of Soucek, Stones & Coufal. (-8 , could be a -12 if I punt on Meslier too).

    I'm rolling with 8 (+Davis) players in the BGW.

    1. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Can you forecast a bette TC week given the article above? I haven’t researched it yet!

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        No-one knows for sure, but there will in all likelihood be other doubles involving the big teams.

      2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 12 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I disagree with the article above. If you have KDB v Villa and Palace both at home you are not going to get a much better TC option than that.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      -12 is too much. The - 8 with that bench could work

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah, the -12 gives me that sexy full squad of doublers but I think it's a hit too far too. My thinking is that as I am so close to BB I might as well go for it for the sake of a couple of hits (the other doubler I'd be bringing in is Watkins who has good fixtures after 19 too). I have a high(ish) TV and can the make the most of it in the 2nd half of the season by pumping it into the first 11 and not worrying about building up and then removing a BB squad later.

        It's mainly Covid that puts me off using a chip at this time, but I suppose the lockdown will help reduce the chance of cancelled matches.

    3. Phil's Stamps

      Thanks guys

    4. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Well I was in a similar position to you was unsure whether to go TC or BB DG19.

      A full bench boost with a decent 15 would have cost me a -8. But I worked out it was not really worth it.

      As was unsure if the bench boost of Johnstone, Dier, Justin, Rodrigo
      And getting Coufal, Ogbonna, Bamford in would score about 28 points combined extra. As I felt the -8 narrowed the chance of maximising BB. A bench boost should be getting around 20 points extra in my opinion. Taking into account the minus 8 it seems unlikely.

      So instead I just got in Fernandes instead of Salah 9 gw starters plus Brewster gw18.

      Gameweek 19 TC KDB likely 30 points.

      Will bench Johnstone Dier, Brewster, Ferguson. Likely only 11 points on bench. But will have 10 DGW players starting plus Son.

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I suppose what I could do is swap one of the less palatable 'spare' doublers e.g. Zouma for a GW18 player (I current; only have 8 players for GW18. It would cost me a hit but in reality it's more of a -2 this week. Then just take the -4 to bring in Salah for GW19, play TC and feel better leaving just one doubler on the bench.

        Thanks, that really helps.

      My opponent had Salah, Robbo and TAA playing tonight . . . I had two missing players (Burnley) . . . pipped him by a point with Ayling off the bench . . .

    Would you save all chips if you have your current team like this:

    gw18 - 10 players ready - no hits
    Martinez
    Stones Bellerin Dier
    (C)KDB Bruno Son Zaha Neto
    Kane

    gw19 - 9 dgw players - 1 hit
    Martinez
    Stones Zouma Justin
    (TC)KDB Bruno Son Salah Neto
    Bamford Antonio

      No FH18 needed and TC19 could still be an option

    Balbuena and Salah to Stones and KDB for - 4 and have 8 players for BGW18 or FH18?

    1FT 0.2itb
    Martinez*
    Holding* Stones* Cancelo*
    Son* Bruno* KDB* Raphinha
    Kane* Rodrigo Bamford
    (Johnstone Robbo Soucek Coufal)

      I am pretty much doing the same, Salah and Lamptey to Stones and KDB but have 2FT. It will give me 8 players (+Davis). I still think it's worth it for a hit too.

        8 months, 23 days ago

        Thanks. It solves my Balbuena issue and can BB19. Obv going without Salah is a risk

        One week punt

        1. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Cavani banned for 3 games, Martial Is a great pick

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 23 days ago

            Cavani is back for GW18

            Which ends after the two cup games this week

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Not sure about Meslier/ Leeds def. CHE def is not great at the moment.

      1. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Meslier will get save points and might sneak a CS in the DGW (fixtures look good). I really like Chilwell. I sold him reluctantly a few weeks back when he had his “injury” and wanted him back. I think Chelsea will improve.

    3. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Maybe Lacazette (8.2) over Martial

  20. Mahjongking
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Tc or bb chip better for gw19?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Depends on your team

      1. Mahjongking
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Martinez
        Cresswell stones dallas
        Kdb mahrez bruno barnes
        Kane ings bamford

        Subs steer saiss kwp asm

    2. Shineonme
      • 5 Years

      BB if you have 12 or more double gw players

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 12 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Good advice I was on the cusp of BB but to get 15 would have cost me a -8.
        Decided TC KDB and 10 DGW plus Son seems the most sensible.

  21. Captain Vantastic™
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Is there anyway we can figure out average number of players available per team for gw18 in the top 10k/100k? Would be quite useful.

  22. tommo1989
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Would you change anything to this free hit?
    Pickford
    Tierney Stones Shaw
    Saka KDB (c) Bruno Sterling Son
    Lacazette Kane
    4.0 Mitchell Davis Douglas

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Error prone Everton GK

      1. tommo1989
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Haha yeah that’s the obvious weakness but money is tight if I’m going to fit the rest in!

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Downgrade Laca to Wilson and upgrade Pickford to Darlow

    2. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Way too much faith in Arsenal man

      1. tommo1989
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Don’t you think Man City, Man Utd, Arsenal & Tottenham are the teams to back in 18?

    3. Releasebreaks
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      yes would change keeper

    4. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Rather have Wilson over lacszette and upgrade stone to cancella.

  23. Rossendale Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    How many players is enough to avoid free hitting in GW 18?

    This is my GW 18 team now. Would you free hit or save the chip?

    Martinez
    Stones - Cancello
    De Bruyne - Fernandez
    Kane - Brewster

    1 FT so was going to do Cresswell to Arsenal defender or Raphina to Saka for one week.

    1. In Bale We Trust
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Personally I would free hit. Think it’s worth the gain in points.

    2. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Definitely save your FH mate.

      Your team is already in a decent shape. Just bring in an Arsenal player as you have suggested.

    3. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Would just free hit, it's not enough imo.

    4. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I would defo. FH that.

    5. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I think if you use you FT for an attacker Saka/Wilson etc then you can scrape through with that lot.

    6. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      8

  24. james 101

    Best keeper up to 5.1m on a FH18?

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Probably Leno or The one which Sheffield is playing

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I’m on Leno just now

  25. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Would you take a hit to do the following

    Curtis Jones => Emile Smith Rowe

    Im playing BB in DGW19

  26. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    On FH rank those 4 arsenal assets by best to worst (considering their value)
    Tierney - Holding - Saka - Laca

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Saka Tierney Laca Holding.

      On a FH you don't want a player like Holding.

  27. Pulp Minion
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Will McCarthy be back for the DGW?

    1. In Bale We Trust
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      It seems likely, but people have different reactions to COVID. Hopefully we’ll hear if he’s asymptomatic.

  28. Warbling Wendy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    I went into tonights game 40-40 on points with my fpl cup match.

    I had Salah (C) and Mane to play.
    He had Salah, Bednarek and Ings.

    I thought it was in the bag. This happens every year. He has bench boosted Martin, Justin, Ridewald, Bernado this week. He captained Calvert Lewin this week. This is the genius I have been defeated by

    1. Warbling Wendy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      This happens every year. The first or second round I lose to a team that resembles a team that I imagine a team managed by my mum would look like.

    2. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Thats just bad luck mate. Sorry!

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I routinely get knocked out by a dead team

  29. SuperDan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Robertson > Cancelo smart?

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Not at all

    2. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Yes

  30. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 23 days ago

    After this GW games WHO would be your TC for GW 19?

    A) Salah
    B) KdB
    C) Bruno

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      B

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Still probably A, with B a close second.

    3. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      B
