Frisking the Fixtures

Who has the best FPL fixtures in the next six Gameweeks and beyond?

Our frisk of the fixtures sees us assess the Premier League clubs and players with the strongest runs of league matches over the coming weeks – in theory, at least.

The primary focus in this article will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead but we will scrutinise the longer-term prospects where appropriate.

BEST FIXTURES

LEEDS UNITED

Raphinha and Bamford both deliver returns as Saint-Maximin steals the Newcastle show 3

Next six: WHU | WAT | sou | WOL | nor | LEI

Despite a five-game winless run to start the season, Leeds United now have an opportunity to kick-on with a favourable schedule from Gameweek 6 right through until the end of October.

In fact, over the next five Gameweeks, they sit top of the Season Ticker for ease of fixture.

Marcelo Bielsa’s troops face newly promoted Watford (h) and Norwich City (a) during that time, as well as West Ham United (h), Southampton (a) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (h).

While the jury remains out on the Whites’ backline, given that they have already shipped 12 goals and have several defenders currently on the treatment table, there will understandably be interest further forward.

Providing they can recover from their respective hip and ankle knocks, Raphinha (£6.5m) and Patrick Bamford (£8.0m) are the stand-out picks. The duo combined at St. James’ Park in Gameweek 5 and have already produced five attacking returns between them in 2021/22. And while Bamford’s ownership is slightly higher at the time of writing, Raphinha’s 16 goal attempts and 10 chances created are both team-leading totals.

CHELSEA

Lukaku on target as Chelsea assets prosper at Arsenal 2

Next six: MCI | SOU | bre | NOR | new | BUR

With one of the best defences in Europe and a ruthless new striker now installed in their starting XI, Chelsea and owners of their Fantasy assets should be brimming with confidence heading into their fixtures between Gameweeks 7 and 11.

Clashes with newly-promoted Brentford (a) and Norwich City (h) are sandwiched by matches against Southampton (h), Newcastle United (a) and Burnley (a). Even this weekend’s tie against champions Manchester City (h) could provide returns, given that Thomas Tuchel has got the better of Pep Guardiola’s side on three occasions this year. 

At the back, the Blues have already kept four clean sheets and are still yet to concede a goal from open-play, so investing in one or two of their defensive assets looks like a wise move. 

Edouard Mendy (£6.0m) missed Gameweek 5 having taken a ‘huge hit’ against Zenit in the UEFA Champions League. However, he is expected back soon and has racked up an impressive 26 FPL points across his four starts. Picking out a defender isn’t quite so straightforward, just ask Reece James (£5.6m) owners, but Antonio Rudiger (£5.5m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m) should be fairly safe starters aside from the odd benching. The situation regarding Marcos Alonso (£5.8m) is also worth monitoring. The Spaniard has started every Premier League match so far this term and sits top of the defender rankings.

Further forward, Chelsea’s run from Gameweeks 9 to 11 looks particularly appealing for their attacking options, as Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley have already shipped 36 goals between them and are yet to register a single clean sheet. Kai Havertz (£8.3m) and Mason Mount (£7.4m) are both interesting options, but Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m) remains the stand-out pick.

ARSENAL

Aubameyang can exploit Norwich defence ahead of Arsenal fixture swing 4

Next six: TOT | bha | CRY | AVL | lei | WAT

While Arsenal struggled in the opening three Gameweeks, back-to-back 1-0 wins suggest that they might just be worth another look ahead of a favourable run of fixtures.

Having easier opponents like Norwich and Burnley obviously helps, but the Gunners have also benefitted from the return of key personnel at the back, including Ben White (£4.4m), Gabriel (£5.0m) and Thomas Partey (£5.0m). The additions of Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) and Takehiro Tomiyasu (£4.5m) have also given them a much-needed lift, while Kieran Tierney (£4.9m) has the potential for attacking returns even if they do concede.

Next up is North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who have lacked attacking ideas so far and rank 20th for xG, while four of their five opponents to follow also feature in the bottom-half of that table.

Further forward, options remain sparse and to be fair question marks do still exist, but Martin Ødegaard (£5.5m) and Bukayo Saka (£6.0m) did provide a goal and assist at the weekend, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) scoring and collected maximum bonus in Gameweek 4.

SOUTHAMPTON

 1

Next six: WOL | che | LEE | BUR | wat | AVL

Following their impressive draw at Manchester City last weekend, Southampton now have an appealing schedule with an away trip to Chelsea in Gameweek 7 the only red fixture in sight.

Favourable home matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United, Burnley and Aston Villa are all on the menu, with an added trip to Norwich City following that run.

At the back, Tino Livramento (£4.2m) has started every match this season and could provide real value at both ends of the pitch. The former Chelsea man has been popping up in some advanced positions, and has been a little unfortunate not to add an assist to his tally.

Leeds, Burnley and Watford all look like particularly good fixtures to target from an attacking perspective, too.

90-minute man James Ward-Prowse (£6.4m) has set-pieces and penalties in his locker, while Mohamed Elyounoussi (£5.5m) has posted some encouraging underlying numbers since his re-introduction to the starting XI in Gameweek 3. However, the pick of the bunch could well be forward Adam Armstrong (£6.0m). The 24-year-old has already provided one goal and an assist, and tops the Saints stats charts for goal attempts and shots in the box.

ALSO CONSIDER

Is £4.0m FPL goalkeeper Foster the new Watford number one?

In an attacking sense, Watford rank highly over the next six fixtures (NEW | lee | LIV | eve | SOU | ars), though it is worth noting that their next two are more appealing that the subsequent run, as Newcastle and Leeds both rank in the bottom three for xGC so far this season and are yet to record a shut-out. 

That immediately promotes Ismaila Sarr’s (£6.1m) FPL prospects. The Senegalese winger’s 13 goal attempts, 11 shots in the box and nine created chances are team-leading totals, while Emmanuel Dennis (£5.2m) is one of the better budget forwards in the game right now, having started all five Premier League matches so far, chipping in with two goals and an assist.

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 3? 8

Leicester City have had a disappointing start to the season, losing three of their opening five matches, but now have a run of fixtures (BUR | cry | MUN | bre | ARS | lee) which should give them a platform to start moving up the table.

James Maddison (£6.8m) is clearly struggling, but that hasn’t stopped Jamie Vardy (£10.4m) impressing. The no. 9 ranks second amongst all forwards for FPL points, via three goals, an assist and five bonus points.

The introduction of Ademola Lookman (£6.0m) at half-time in Gameweek 5 is also one to monitor, as he will now be pushing for a start after an encouraging display.

Learning from ‘The Great and The Good’ FPL managers – Gameweek 5 1

Finally, Wolverhampton Wanderers (sou | NEW | avl | lee | EVE | cry) still have a reasonable run, and despite a disappointing defeat to Brentford in Gameweek 5, could do well.

Amongst the stand-out options in the Wolves ranks are wing-backs Marcal (£4.6m) and Nelson Semedo (£4.9m), both of whom have impressed in the opening weeks. 

Adama Traore (£6.0m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) will also hope to open their 2021/22 accounts, having posted some promising underlying numbers during the opening rounds.

    Morning lads,
    any idea to improve this team ?
    Thinking of Traore > Sarr but could also save and grab 2 CHE next week

    Raya
    TAA / Livra / Shaw
    Traore / Jota / Salah / Torres
    Antonio / CR7 / Bamford
    sub : Ward / White / McArthur / Williams (0.6 ITB)

    Thanks in advance

    1. DAZZ
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Debating exact same move below. Probs going to keep Jota for Brentford, but Traore > Sarr tempting.

      What are the pros and cons of doing Traore > Sarr?

      1. Nightrain_
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        IMHO, the pro is Sarr's form and he's up against leaky Newcastle and Leeds so high chance of producing points but the con is doing this for free means can't do double CHE move next GW (unless take a hit) and WOL has chance to play Newcastle too.

        However, I don't think Traore can score against Southampton at home so I'm leaning toward Sarr now

        What's your personal opinion mate ?

        1. DAZZ
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          I own Traore, but my honest opinion it’s so tempting to make the switch. First things first let’s see how many minutes Traore plays in the Carabao cup against Spurs. Anything 70+ and i’ll probably move. With his stats i can’t believe he blanked agaisnt Watford and Brentford. It doesnt bode well tbh and Saints away is not easy. If he plays limited minutes i’ll probably bite the bullet and keep, high minutes, sell. Podence waiting in the wings

          1. Nightrain_
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Good thinking, I think Carabao should decide his fate

  4. DAZZ
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 7 days ago

    Would you do Traore > Sarr for free?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Not with Southampton, Newcastle up next

      1. DAZZ
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Yup deffo something to think about. But i thought he would perform against Watford and Brentford. Tempted to cut losses

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Who else do you have? I’d consider Greenwood to Sarr, as Greenwood is being starved of chances.

          1. DAZZ
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Salah Jota Raph Traore. I did consider Jota but he didnt play a minute last night

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 13 Years
              9 months, 7 days ago

              Yeah, keep Jota. Even if Raph is out, he’s probably a hold.

              That’s tough. I’d either bank the FT or sell Traore then.

    2. Hits from the Bong
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Yep

    3. Shattered Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      If Traore’s shot had gone in instead of hitting the bar would you still be considering it?

      1. DAZZ
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Probably not.

      2. DAZZ
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        But if he scored and the momentum shifted against 10 men and they pulled the game back would the gaffer be less inclined to make changes had they not lost 2-0 at home to Brentford, no point looking at the ifs and buts because it didnt happen.

    4. Davros
      • 13 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Probably. Because Sarr scored last week and Traore didn’t 😉

    5. The Kopite
        9 months, 7 days ago

        I'm keeping. He could have scored las time and got an assist as well. Worht a risk for the next 2 gw and also I brought him in to give him a chance for at least 3 gws. Don't wanna change my plans.

    6. marcos11
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Have poor fixtures in my team for gw7, should l:

      a) Use my FT this week and WC gw7 before the International Break
      b) Keep 2FT and take a hit to sort out my team for gw7 and save WC for gw8

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Good time to use the WC. Attack every gameweek, if you can but avoid hits.

    7. Stimps
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 7 days ago

      Traore to Gray worth a hit?

      1. Rassi

        ...

      2. Davros
        • 13 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Unlikely to be worth a hit

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Lukaku I reckon now - Jorginho missed a fair few recently and Rom has scored his last 19 kicks.

        But we don’t truly know until they next win one with both on the pitch.

        1. wulfrunian
          • 5 Years

          Cheers Miguel.

      2. Nightrain_
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        should be Lukaku if Tuchel gives him an opportunity to challenge the golden boot and as I recall, Lukaku took 6 penalties while in Inter and converted them all

      Please suggest 3 in and 2 bench for GW6

      Dias & Matip might be 2 priority. How about other 3 ?

      1. Twisted Saltergater

          Cheers. I could do with Antonio scoring on his return and the Chelsea - Man City game being 1-1 with own goals 🙂

      2. Cok3y5murf
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 7 days ago

        Told you Torres was a trap. Would probably leave this as it is, but Jota and Greenwood need to go by next week.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Yeah, I wouldn’t mind keeping him as he’s posting good stats but there’s players doing it for less and I need to free up funds for Chelsea defence.

          Greenwood’s xG has fallen off a cliff. He gets one more home game to see if he can click with Ronaldo.

        Greenwood to Sarr. He’s being starved of service since Ronaldo came in.

        If you’re reluctant, give him the Villa game and see if anything change.

      2. tomasjj

        I am on A.

        Had Vardy since the start.

        Changes with opposition.

        RCB slot rotates with Azpi, Chalobah and Christensen

        RWB slot rotates with James and Azpi (and CHO less so)

        Rudiger is nailed at LCB. Other CB rotates with Thiago and Christensen

            • 2 Years

            Chilwell wasn’t mentally fit. He will come back at some point. For now Alonso is ahead of him.

      Digne finally scores then gets flagged. I'm run out of patient with this. Digne to James or Alonso? or Rudiger to be safe.

        He got injured I think. Might as well get rid. Alonso or Rudiger depending on your appetite

      2. ZeBestee

        9 months, 7 days ago

        Alonso. Although see how that internet brawl (he is against taking the knee and would prefer to do it differently) would affect him mentally/gametime.

        Looking to get a defence of:
        - TAA Rudiger Alonso Cancelo

        Anyone else going 442? Faith in the full backs!

          • 12 Years

          How confident are you that Cancello and Alonso will continue to start?

              One game for Chilwell at any point and you're sweating. Get a decent backup 5th defender

          2. ZeBestee
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Cancelo will start most game, that's not even a debate imo.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Yep. Can play left and right back. Nailed as they come

              1. ZeBestee
                • 7 Years
                9 months, 7 days ago

                With Mendy out, and Zinchenko being Zinchenko, expect at least 40-50 games for him this season.

        2. Kryptonite666
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          This is great. i have James instead of Alonso, will evaluate in a week.

          Cant afford Cancelo. Have the great rugby tackler Marcal instead

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Thinking 4-3-3 with Saka, Raphinha and Gallagher rotating well for 2 slots.

          1. Make United Great Again
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            That’s nice. 4 at the back does enable a strong bench. Don’t have to call on a shabby 4.5 in case someone is benched

        4. Pinturicchio10
            9 months, 7 days ago

            One move away from TAA-VVD-Rudiger-Dias. Shaw -> Dias gw8.

          would you do
          Torres + 4.5 forward -> Sarr + Dennis (-4)
          Beefs up my bench too, can afford to bench Marcal if needed

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Ok fixtures but WAT are not going to score a lot of goals. I would just get Sarr.

        6. LiamK17
          • 1 Year

          If you’re set on wildcarding in GW8 and you have 1FT this week (and nothing major to transfer) would you hold and use 2FT to get in chelsea players next week, or go for like punts each week to dead end the team?

            • 7 Years

            Looks ok that. Move Shaw or Regs perhaps for Chelsea/City defender.

            No WC needed.

          9 months, 7 days ago

          While Greenwood is a bit isolated recently, if he continues with the same passion and doesn't give up easily, it's only a matter of time before he starts banging them in again. They can't depend on one player to score for them all season long. They need to play as a team and get more goals from other players as Greenwood is such a good finisher.

          1. waltzingmatildas
            • 11 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            I agree, but from an FPL perspective, it's a tough hold

        9. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          Hey guys,

          I bought Mount in a couple of weeks ago ahead of the good run. He's had 0 mins then 45 mins which is frustrating.

          Would you do Mount to Gray or Sarr? Or just hold? Could bench him for Livramento

          Sanchez Foster
          TAA Shaw White Livramento Ayling
          Salah Mount Raphinha Benrahma Gilmour
          Ronaldo Antonio Bamford

          1. ZeBestee
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            If one of Bam/Raphinha is ruled out, then Mount > Sarr. I went Gray personally for this gw just simply because he plays Norwich.

          2. Carefree Crew
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            If you've brought him in for the good run, that doesn't start until GW 7.

            Rested after the International break & hauled off at HT at Spurs for the Kante twins. He is less nailed to play 90 every week this year with Lukaku pushing Havertz & Werner back into the 2 behind the striker positions with Mount, Ziyech, Pulisic & potentially Hudson-Odoi.

            I'd probably hold this week with your team & players fixtures & reassess afterwards. You'll be gutted if Mount does well during the run you originally brought him in for.

            Ayling (possibly injured) would be my priority to remove looking at your team. Defensively Leeds have struggled. Numerous CH injuries means if fit he will play CH (versus Antonio) which obviously reduces his attacking threat. Although if you have plans to get Lukaku / Chelsea DF in next week you may want to save the transfer so you have 2 & can move funds around to facilitate.

              Lukaku, Antonio and Armstrong would be my front line

                • 11 Years

          Play
          Rudiger or Liv?

          1. ZeBestee
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Rud

          2. Carefree Crew
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            I've got both & decided to play Livramento. After City performance last week, I'm expecting a reaction & for them to score at the Bridge. (Unfortunately)
            Wolves struggle to score goals & Saints have back to back clean sheets I think.
            Can't believe I'm playing a £4m DF over Rudi at home but that's my thought process.

          Have only just read the tweet in Bam and Ayling. No idea what it means though 😆 are they out at the weekend?

          1. Carefree Crew
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            Bielsa will confirm on Friday. Just read it after seeing your post & it doesn't actually tell us anything that we didn't know before.
            "Rumours" earlier this week they'd both be likely fit, but that's not official.

        13. Energetics
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 7 days ago

          You ever completed a transfer and instantly regretted it?

          Sanchez
          Taa Shaw Semedo Livra
          Salah Jota Raph Traore
          Cr7 Lukaku

          Steele Sissoko Williams Locadia

          Plan was save a FT, Jota and Williams to Gallagher and Rudiger next week, Shaw to Cancelo the following (Shaw has two home games, Cancelo Chelsea and Liverpool)

          But panicked with price rises and did Shaw to Rudiger last night. A worse fixture this week and now means will have to play Williams next week!

          A promising start is going quickly downhill

          1. tomasjj
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            You are overthinking it.
            The early move means you can make another of the planned adjustments already next week.

          2. Carefree Crew
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 7 days ago

            I suspect we all have at some point mate.
            I'm guilty of being influenced by price fluctuations in the first 10 GWs & making early transfers to build / protect team value.

            I did the same transfer, but was planning to do Shaw to Rudi next week anyway & have exact cash for my planned transfers & didn't want to be priced out.

            It's not gone downhill yet, may still work out & the extra £0.1 may be very useful if you have exact cash for a future transfer which you wouldn't of been able to make if you hadn't gone early last night.

            Man U haven't been keeping many clean sheets & Shaw's not been getting many returns. Good luck to you.
