How to navigate European and FA Cup fixtures returning to FPL schedule

Fantasy Premier League managers now have to consider a multitude of new problems with the return of European football and remaining FA Cup matches.

How will the restart of the Champions League and Europa League impact team selection? Will players be tired from the travel and additional match time?

When will all of the postponed matches be rescheduled? What will Gameweek 29 look like with the FA Cup fixtures scheduled for that weekend?

There are so many questions and at the moment very little in the way of answers for FPL managers. I’m trying to plan ahead and make my transfers count, not just for the week ahead, but for the long-term too.

I played my Free Hit chip back in Gameweek 18 meaning that, on paper, Gameweek 29 will be difficult to manage. Sheffield United, Everton, Southampton, Chelsea, Manchester City, Leicester and Manchester United have all made it to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. So when they play their Premier League matches scheduled for that weekend remains to be seen.

We do know that the following matches will be played as planned as these teams are out of the FA Cup:

  • Brighton v Newcastle
  • Fulham v Leeds
  • West Ham v Arsenal

There have also been rumours we might get some fixtures rearranged to this week. In particular, Spurs v Aston Villa, as Spurs will be unable to play additional matches in Gameweeks 27 and 28 if they beat Wolfsburg in the Europa League this week.

However, this is all speculation until we get an official announcement from the Premier League.

So what do FPL managers do while we wait for official announcements?

Transfers at this stage of the season are vital. In most other parts of the season making a transfer for one or two weeks works really well, as it allows us to target a particular player or team for a match or two. But with multiple Double Gameweeks to come over the remainder of the season, we have to try and ensure we use our transfers as best we can, so they work in both the short and long-term.

For me, my biggest issue will be Gameweek 29, as this this is a key Gameweek for me to work towards. I currently own three West Ham players and two Leeds assets:

  • Patrick Bamford (£6.8m)
  • Stuart Dallas (£4.9m)
  • Aaron Cresswell (£5.8m)
  • Tomas Soucek (£5.4m)
  • Michail Antonio (£6.6m)

Having only five players available is not viable for that Gameweek and therefore my transfers have to work for Double Gameweek 25 and Gameweeks 26 to 28 (which may or may not be doubles) as well as blank Gameweek 29.

As a result, I’m targeting certain teams who have nice fixtures and play in Gameweek 29.

Brighton

What chip strategy are FFS users planning for Blank Gameweek 18?

Brighton are currently a gift FPL managers should take advantage of.

Having kept five clean sheets in their last six Premier League matches, they are defensively rock solid and their attacking stats have taken a turn for the better over the last few weeks.

In Gameweek 24, Brighton had 26 shots on the Aston Villa goal and forced Emiliano Martinez (£5.2m) in to nine saves. Were it not for Martinez’s outstanding performance, Brighton would have won the game comfortably, as they restricted Villa to just two shots and no big chances.

Lewis Dunk (£4.9m) has already taken a £0.1m price increase this week, as 56,255 managers have invested in the Brighton defender so far. This makes him the third most popular defensive transfer ahead of Gameweek 25.

In the last six Gameweeks, Dunk has returned 44 points for his owners. He is top of the pile out of all defenders in the game by form, a whole 1.2 ahead of Matt Targett (£4.9m) in second place.

Brighton are not expected to have any Double Gameweeks and this may be off-putting for many FPL managers, especially if you still have your Free Hit.

However, for managers like myself who do not have the Free Hit chip left, Dunk looks like an excellent option.

Over the last six Gameweeks Brighton are now sixth for attempts in the box, just two behind Manchester United and with only in-form teams and Liverpool above them.

Brighton also sit fourth over the same period for minutes per chance, just 0.1 minutes behind Chelsea and Liverpool and 0.2 mins behind league leaders Manchester City.

While Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) failed to return any FPL points in Gameweek 24, he was second for expected goals (xG) underachievers, meaning that he was unlucky not to return FPL points for the 0.3% of managers who own him.

Welbeck, alongside the likes of Alexis Mac Allister (£5.3m) Leandro Trossard (£5.7m) and Neal Maupay (£6.1m) are all huge differentials in FPL. Of the four, Mac Allister has virtually no ownership at 0.0%, with Maupay having the highest at 3.0%.

Even at Maupay’s level of ownership, he is still a huge differential and is heading in to a run of fixtures against sides who (aside from Leicester) have been susceptible to conceding goals. They could all be excellent picks to cover you all the way through, and potentially beyond Gameweek 29.

  • Gameweek 25: Crystal Palace six conceded in the last three Gameweeks
  • Gameweek 26: West Brom five conceded in the last three Gameweeks
  • Gameweek 28: Southampton 14 conceded in the last three Gameweeks
  • Gameweek 29: Newcastle six conceded in the last three Gameweeks

These defences could allow plenty of opportunities for the Brighton forwards to score FPL points.

Leeds

Bamford and Raphinha star in audition for Double Gameweek 25 2

Unlike Brighton, FPL managers know Leeds will play twice in Double Gameweek 25 and their assets are already high on their wish lists.

Alongside this double there is the potential of Leeds having another Double Gameweek over the next few weeks too. Couple that with them having a fixture in Gameweek 29 and Leeds look to be the perfect fit for FPL managers.

Patrick Bamford (£6.8m) is already owned by 53.7% of the game. He is also currently the most transferred forward with 144,991 new owners so far, ahead of his double in Gameweek 25.

Obviously Bamford will be owned by the majority of FPL managers by the time we arrive at Gameweek 29, but there are still plenty of other great options.

Alongside Bamford I currently own Stuart Dallas (£4.9m) and he came off my bench for a -1 when Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) was ruled out. Despite his negative return, he is still a great option.

Dallas is the most transferred in defender ahead of Gameweek 25 with 152,148 managers bringing in the Leeds defender.

While Leeds haven’t kept a lot of clean sheets recently (just one in the last seven Gameweeks) Dallas has returned a seven and a 12 point haul in that time. He did this by scoring a goal in Gameweek 21 and registering a clean sheet, and created an assist and brought in all three bonus points in Gameweek 23.

Depending on Double Gameweek updates beyond Gameweek 26, I will probably look to bring in a third Leeds option. Raphinha (£5.4m) is the stand-out for me currently. He has now returned in each of the last five gameweeks, accumulating 38 points made up of two goals, four assists, five bonus points and a clean sheet point.

 1

At just 3.6% ownership, Raphinha is a great differential option. He is on a fantastic run of form, a guaranteed Double Gameweek and has a match in the blank Gameweek in 29 so there is a lot to like about him as a FPL option.

Think long term

Right now, planning ahead and for the present is key. Leeds offer the perfect blend of Double Gameweeks and playing in the Blank Gameweek too.

Brighton have a great fixture list of single Gameweeks as well as a fixture in that all-important blank Gameweek 29.

There are other clubs I am keeping a firm watch on too. If Spurs make it through to the next round of the Europa League then there is an increased chance of Aston Villa and Spurs playing each other in their rearranged match in Gameweek 29, as they are both out of the FA Cup.

If this does end up happening, FPL managers will breathe a sigh of relief as this will give us access to options such as Harry Kane (£11.0m), Son Heung-min (£9.5m), Ollie Watkins (£6.5m), Jack Grealish (£7.8m) and the Aston Villa defence during Gameweek 29 – something that would be incredibly helpful to FPL managers at large.

    What to do here?
    4.2 in the bank, 2ft, all chips still to play inc wildcard

    Meslier (Steer)
    Dias Stones AWB (Mee Coufal)
    Salah Bruno Gundo Grealish (Anguissa)
    Antonio Werner Bamford

    Haven't really made any plans for DGW26 yet, really not sure what to do

    1. NateDogsCats
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Upgrading Steer to a playing keeper would mean you're set up well to use BB next week if you wanted

    2. Mattymo23

      What potential DGW fixtures could happen in GW27 and GW28?

      "Having only five players available is not viable for that Gameweek"

      What utter nonsense

        Monkey why are you so angry nowadays. Used to be so calm back in the day

        "that" = ?

        1 month, 26 days ago

        With 3 matches, 6 teams, you'd obviously want more than 5 anyway, but you're going to be fighting yourself for scores, right? I've 8 right now, but with a 4th match added that could easily be 9 or 10 and absolutely sorted then... proper chufty. But that's future me's problem.

        Why? I agree really, I definitely want more than 5.

        I already have Bamford, Raphinha, Dallas, Coufal, Antonio (will be Kane).

        Son, Watkins, Martinez likely being added to that, if that game goes in GW29.

        That's 8 and I'll likely get at least one more

    4. Ibralicious

      Gundogan -> Raphinha (-4)? Genius or crazy, don't see Pep risking Gundo this week?

      1. CostaCoffee

        madness

      Thoughts on this WC?

      McCarthy Sanchez
      Stones Konsa Lowton Dallas Lewis

        Mccarthy on a wildcard ? no thanks he has cost me so much in rank that guy. Dias over stones

      2. Gomolon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        After this week don't Burnley have bad fixtures? Not sure of the appeal of Lewis, especially when 0.1/0.2m more gets you a cheap nailed Brighton defender

    6. Bennison
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Foden -> Raphina for a -4?

      I have Foden + Gundo, thinking of doing one of them to Raphina for a -4 but not sure which one. No KDB is back I don't think Gundo will be as effective he has been

    7. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Kane, Gundo, 3.8 in for DCL, Soucek, Stones for a hit - no BB.

      A. Yay
      B. Nay
      C. lol @ no gundo

            • 6 Years

      Here's an exciting one,

      Maja or Maupay for the next 5?

          Could be gold, could be leprechaun gold

    12. Silicon Vialli
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Who to bench:
      Lowton
      Stones
      Rudiger
      Watkins

      1. DanwiseTheBrave
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Lowton

      2. jason_ni
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        in this order id bench

        Watkins
        Rudigar
        Stones
        Lowton

        Lowton being the one I'd be most likely to start.

      3. drughi

        Thanks - think Watkins perhaps.

    13. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Any news on whether Mendy will come back in for Chelsea?

      It's crucial to whether I WC

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

        TT stated Mendy is his first choice. He gives Kepa a run out for his confidence.

      2. DanwiseTheBrave
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Tuchel said he's number one

        “No, Edouard (Mendy) is number one. This is clear. This was clear before the game and stays like this.”

        Whether that's true, who knows

      3. Pegboy
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Thanks both. I think I'll risk it for one more week.

      Repost as no reply earlier. If Gundo and Antonio are confirmed fit is it worth BB this week with this lot?

      Pope
      Dias Dallas Lowton
      Salah Bruno Son Gundo Raphina
      Bamford Ings

      Martinez Stones Antonio White

      Plan is to TC Kane GW26, dead end team into GW29, WC GW30 and FH GW33

      Playing around with a wc, what do you reckon?
      I've used my bb.
      Martinez Areola
      Cancelo Shaw Dallas Tete Burn
      Salah Bruno Son Gundo Raphinha
      Kane Bamford Watkins

      Could downgrade Son to Grealish or Barnes after 26 and upgrade defence.
      Would give me a slight benching headache but I can cope with that

    16. Jam0sh

    17. Mane Mane Mane
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Which GK and three defenders do I choose out of this...

        Martinez or Pope
        Dallas Cancelo Stones Coufal or Tark

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years

          Pope

              1 month, 26 days ago

              Cheers, that’s what I’m leaning to. Which three defenders do you reckon are best this weekend?

              1. Ibralicious
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Cancelo, Dallas, Tark IMO

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Dallas is a no brainer, so its 2 of the other 4
                Cancelo and Tark, Stone 1st on bench to come in when Cancelo is envitably rested.

        2. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Is there a chance Rashford gets benched with a quick turnaround for United facing Newcastle after Sociedad?

              One of my best friends in NZ is a Luton fan from Luton and she hates Elton John with a passion. Can't listen to him. Is this normal?

            Depends who for and how you are set for potential DGW26 where they can only play once.

            problem with mccarthy is that he never get any save points either

            On form, Pope looks far stronger.

          Who to captain?
          A) Bamford (Safe option, only attacking)
          B) Dallas (Risky option, high risk high reward)

            A, if you want to consider a riskier option I'd go for Rahpina. Attacking numbers as good as Bamfords, and when Raph plays Bamfords numbers actually goes down a bit (he becomes more of an assister than a goalscorer), and Raph is only 6.9% owned (you can see the numbers breakdown on BigManBakar twitter)

          Which GK is best to start this week?

          A Areola (SHU H)
          B McCarthy (CHE H, LEE A)

          Even with two games for McCarthy, it feels a close call.

          Triple Captain Bamford????

            I used my TC on Sterling last week. His raw score over 2 games was 7. I'd expect much the same from Bamford (disclaimer: I'm captaining Bamford!)

              Always the way...

              I'm 30 off lead in my League, top has Bamford and pretty sure they will captain.

              So sensible move is to do the same, as have been chipping away with the rest of my team.

              Other challenge is who to start from Saka or Son... Need to bench 1.

          Hi all, had a discussion with Andy this morning about stones and cancelo

          Who do we think is likely to get more minutes in the PL?

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

            Might as well reproduce my post for people to rip apart!!

            Two thoughts: 1) Dias and Laporte will be prioritised in CL for their experience, so Stones gets more PL.
            2) KDB back won't impact on Gundogan's position, but it occurs to me (and no one's discussed this) that it impacts on Cancelo - there's no room in a crowded midfield for his new game, so he'll be back to bog-standard wingback duties and there's more competition there, so he'll get rested more in the PL. Therefore, my preference would be for Ederson, and after him, Stones!

            1. The Train Driver
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              1 month, 26 days ago

              Sounds reasonable about Cancelo, no chance to fit them all in there? Maybe Rodri to drop back allowing Cancelo to attack?

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

                Rodri's already the deeper one. Kev and Gundo ahead of him squeezes out Cancelo in my mind.

                  I disagree. I think KDB squeezes out Silva from the current lineup, or moves him to the right hand side.

                  1. Andy_Social
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Bilva and Mahrez sharing right-side duties with Raz on the left. If Cancelo maintains his role, will that push Kev further forward, closer to the striker? Ideal if it works like that.

              Having sold Cancelo and kept Stones to make way for Sterling , this is music to my ears 🙂 !
              Sterling to KDB still the big question , though

              1. Andy_Social
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                1 month, 26 days ago

                Yeh, I've currently got Cancelo, Gundo and Sterling. I'm looking to see if Kev returns fit and sharp to do a sideways transfer, Raz>Kev. If Cancelo is rotated as I fear, I might downgrade him to Stones later.

                  Need to see some signs of form from KDB this weekend first, he didn't justify his price during first half of season. What do you think of Sterling's minutes over the two expected DGWs, could he be worth holding on to after all?

                  1. Andy_Social
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    I TC'd Raz over the last DGW and got a bit burned! I've done my FT this week to get Raphinha, so Sterling starts for me, and I'll be monitoring Raz and Kev to see if I stick or twist. Tbh, I'd rather Raz was more fired up as I'm short of players for GW29 and could do with getting Brighton assets first.

              How many going to pull the trigger on WC if DGW fixtures get announced up to 1 hour before deadline?

                Your grav got me hungry. But probably not, I usually take 1 week to ponder over a WC, couldn't imagine 1 hour.

                Probably will, I am set on the majority of players. Just depends on any unexpected doubles popping up

                  That BB chip in my pocket is going to force my hand on WC.

                  The only realistic time to use BB is 26 (for my team anyway)

                  alonso will rotate

                  start raphina

                He is in my wc team. Make sure you have a strong 4th defender for when alonso gets benched.

                Meaningless as doesn't include decision to look at VAR in first place. If Utd or Pool player falls in any circs then Var seemingly studied, but taking Chelsea for example there have been multiple examples where not even looked at, as when Azpilicueta wrestled to ground, etc,
