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.

    For GW19:

    A Kane and Son ---> Ings and KDB

    B Son and DCL ---> KDB and Adams

    C Kane and DCL ---> Vardy and Ings

    1. In Bale We Trust

      B. But losing son a risk as you know.

        Also would look to Antonio instead of Adams maybe

        1. Werner Bremen
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          I was looking at that. But not sure if Antonio starts yet.

            Personally I would take whatever minutes Antonio gets in those two plum fixtures over Adams getting 180 mins.

            Antonio looked sharp when he came on v Everton. If he’s fit enough he will start. Even off the bench he has the potential to explode.

            Adams just doesn’t have the same high ceiling. Far less attractive. I own him too fwiw.

        I’m on Leno just now

          I think you are underestimating Palace and their attack. I can see them scoring

    3. Z

      Leno

    Bottomed. It's not enough to share my misery at the bottom of the last page, I shall moan here too. Lol

    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

    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.

      Never underestimate your mum.

      Also, the cup isn't worth wasting your woe, it's like complaining that a coin flip doesn't go your way

  5. james 101

    Keeper up to 5.1m on a free hit GW18 is down to:

    A. Darrow SHU (A)

    B. Leno CRY (H)

    Any other options?

        Was considering removing Son for Salah back in 19 (have Kane) I’m now wondering is that a bad move..

        Smooth - KT in for James as my FT for 18 points

        Slight rough - 18 points on the bench.

        Great week though so buzzing for the solid green arrow

      • Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        What about GKs on FH?
        My top 3 defences for clean sheet are the two Manchester teams and Newcastle.
        I can't pick a City GK I think cause I want to buy more explosive players from them (unless Ederson is still out), Darlow was my best pick but I'm afraid that Dubravka may be back(I don't know why), so DDG is probably the option right?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          Darlow spot to lose now. DDG has an error in him so can't trust him

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          DdG is still the best FH option imo. I am going without gk now since I think I'll prefer Saka and Tierney over DdG (-4) and didn't make early transfers and am priced out now.

      • _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 13 days ago

        Salah->KDB -4?

        Martinez
        Dias Stones Taylor*
        Bruno Son Grealish
        DCL Kane

        Johnstone Coufal Dallas Soucek Salah Bamford

        1. Tomsk
            4 months, 13 days ago

            I'd do it (I am ranked over 3million though)

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            I will. Whether that exact move is the one for a hit is debatable.

          Is mahrez really that lousy that u dont start him for like 4 straight games?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Pick one for GW19

          A) Robertson, Dias, Stones
          B) Dias, Cancelo, Dallas

          1. dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            A

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 13 days ago

            I'd personally go Robbo, Cancello, Stones

            Tough one, could you get a west ham defender instead of Dallas ?

        5. Who are all Lukakus
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          People used to complain that Pep rotates too much; now they complain that Pep doesn't play their Mahrez for 200 years.

          1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 13 days ago

            Haha he has dropped of the edge of the cliff, I think they must have fallen out. Plus Foden and Gundogen's form has not helped him now.

        6. Dušan Citizen
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 13 days ago

          So that's Forster securing me next round of cup!

          Fabianski, my 1st keeper, didn't play and I was sure I'm getting 0 pts from my gk (alongside 4 points from 3 defenders).

          After Sunday matches, my opponent had 51 pts, Robertson to go and Guaita coming off the bench for Pope. I had 56 (-4) with Salah to go and Forster as my 2nd keeper only then finding out that McCarthy won't play!

          And I ended up with 65 (-4) (Stones and Dallas also coming in) and he ended up with 59.

          Thoughts on Gundogan as 5th mid?

            Go for it I would say. I have my three city quota used up - sterling KDB and Cancelo. But if I had the transfers spare I would have Gundogen in ahead of Sterling in a heartbeat. Great value constantly involved in good play, in the form of his life. The opposite of sterling!

              Cheers. Just worried about his mins in DGW.

                Even if he plays 60 mins in one and 30 mins in the other he could still get could points over the two games the way he is playing. I seem to remember hearing it said that his role has changed slightly to a more attacking role than usual. Encouraged to get forward.

          COVID postmonement risk v Free Hit squad value???
          Is it safe to activate the free hit now?
          Would you advicate waiting until the last day?
          The government have said elite sports can continue and now the festive period is over, you could suggest players won't be distracted by seasonal get togethers and risk their team bubble... So can we activate now if we feel we might be around 0.5 million better off with team value compared to a week from now?
          If you will Free Hit, please let me know WAIT or NOW?
          Thanks

            It still takes 10-14 days to get symptoms. Teams that have had covid recently could still get more positive results. Risk to the bubble is still there

              OK, so you're saying any player who risked their team bubble with some sort of unsafe get together over Christmas, might not be symptomatic yet, so even tests between then and now wouldn't show positive yet, but might still do in the next week. But in terms of the free hit, that might mean a few players are missing and isolate, but how many fixtures could be called off? 1? 2 at the most? If like me people have bought in to the 'wait until the last minute' message re activating, that was because of the potential stricter lock down and consequences, but that seems OK right?

          Do I need to FH this team?

          Martinez Mitchell
          Bruno Son Grealish
          DCL

          I do have 2FTs so I could take a -4. But then I’d be selling DGW players. So I would have to bring in 3 United, City, or Villa players right?

              With the 7 you have you could bring in KDB and a city def and save FH.

          Maybe a knee jerk reaction but Salah & Robertson > KDB & Dias/Stones? (-4)

          Would leave me with 10 BGW players & all chips still available.

            Looks good to me. KDB a must for me and City are hoovering up cleanies and have brilliant fixtures.

            I’d want Salah back though however

          Have a pretty bad week with no Spurs, no WHU, and Mo(c) blank 3 times in a row.

          Looking into the tricky fixtures, given Welbeck will not make it, I have 9 players for BGW and 11 players for DGW already.

          A. Zouma to Dias (10 playing)
          B. Zouma to Cancelo (10 playing)
          C. Salah to Sterling (10 playing)
          D. Either B or C plus Welbeck to Wilson for -4 (11 playing)

          Martinez
          Cancelo Maguire Holding
          KDB(c) Bruno Grealish El Ghazi
          DCL Welbeck
          Blank: 4.0m Zouma Dallas Salah Bamford

          I will have a few dilemmas now since I am not going to BB gw19.

          The two calls that are annoying me are:

          Martinez v Johnstone

          Martinez faces Everton and Man City - two difficult fixtures. But his form has been great. Save points alone he could do well.

          Johnstone faces Wolves v West Ham - slightly easier fixtures. But Johnstone is well capable of getting a 0 or even minus score in any game.

          And

          Justin v Dier

          Justin faces Southampton and Chelsea - unpredictable games to call. Could be no clean sheets. However, Justin seems to be in the mix for bonuses a lot and is capable of an assist.

          Dier - faces Sheffield United - probably the most locked in 6 points all season. Might take the odd rare free kick as well.

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 13 days ago

            Martinez and gamble on Justin since Dier is probably 6 points max

            1. The White Pele
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 13 days ago

              This.

              Thanks. That is the beauty about Dier 6 is his ceiling. Unless Justin gets really unlucky he should not get less than four over the two games I suppose.

            Martinez all the way, he is class

              I got burnt by getting Johnstone in the first place. When Villa's game was called off ages ago now g11 - because of no playing keeper. But Johnstone got me 0. Then benched Martinez for Johnstone - when Martinez got 11 points v wolves.

                Happy Martinez set and forget owner here; always start him, FPL aside he is a top GK in Premier League.
                This week he almost saved Bruno pen. Also Villa defense is much better than WBA
