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 shorter and longer-term prospects where appropriate.

Our colour-coded Season Ticker is the primary source for this piece; using this tool as a Premium Member, you can sort by difficulty, rank by attacking and defensive potential or find budget rotation pairings. You can also set your own difficulty ratings, should you disagree with our own.

BEST FIXTURES

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 9? 5

Next six: LEE | bur | BRE | NOR | bha | lei

Despite a disappointing start to the season, Tottenham Hotspur now have an opportunity to kick-on under new boss Antonio Conte, with a favourable schedule from Gameweek 12 right through until the New Year.

The immediate set of fixtures look particularly appealing, too, as they sit top of our Season Ticker for ease of fixture over the next six Gameweeks.

Following their goalless draw at Goodison Park on Sunday, Spurs now face Leeds United (h), Burnley (a), plus newly promoted Brentford (h) and Norwich City (h) before Gameweek 16. Notably, three of those opponents rank in the bottom five for expected goals conceded (xGC) this season, which promotes their attacking assets, including Son Heung-min (10.3m) and Harry Kane (£12.2m). Neither player has returned a goal since mid-October, but fixtures often dictate form, with their Gameweek 8 matchup at Newcastle United a prime example of that theory, when both players found the back of the net and returned nine and 12 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points respectively.

At the back, it’s highly likely that the wing-backs will emerge as the go-to defensive options, with Sergio Reguilon’s (£5.0m) recent quotes about arriving in the box to help the strikers particularly encouraging for those looking to move early.

BURNLEY

 1

Next six: CRY | TOT | wol | new | WHU | WAT

While Burnley struggled during the opening weeks of the season, losing four of their first five matches, they have since lost just one in six. 

That run has seen them beat Brentford and take points off Chelsea and Leicester City, which does suggest that they might be worth another look ahead of a favourable run of fixtures.

Admittedly, the in-form Crystal Palace (h), Tottenham Hotspur (h) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) won’t be straightforward, but appealing matches against Newcastle United (a), Watford (h) and Aston Villa (a) follow, while it’s also worth noting that five of their next seven opponents currently sit in the bottom half for non-penalty expected goals (non-pen xG).

That suggests budget defender Matthew Lowton (£4.4m) could perhaps be a useful squad player, while further forward, Maxwel Cornet (£6.0m) has already netted four goals in six appearances and notably clocked 87 minutes at Stamford Bridge last time out, having been withdrawn early in the majority of his other league outings. A lack of in-form forwards could also promote Chris Wood (£6.7m) as a differential option. The New Zealander netted just his second goal of the season against Brentford in Gameweek 10, but has hit double-figures for goals in his four previous top-flight campaigns.

CRYSTAL PALACE

The best Crystal Palace FPL players for Gameweek 11 onwards 2

Next six: bur | AVL | lee | mun | EVE | SOU

Over the next six Gameweeks, Crystal Palace rank ninth on our Season Ticker for ease of fixture. However, if we open the schedule up right through until Gameweek 20, Patrick Vieira’s side jump to third, with an excellent run of fixtures which sees them take on Watford (a) and Norwich City (h) in addition to the above before the end of the year. In fact, the Eagles take on only one side currently nestled in the top-half of the table in their next nine matches.

Despite their tricky opening to the season, Palace sit an excellent second for expected goals conceded (xGC) in 2021/22, which suggests investing in one of their defensive assets could be a shrewd move.  Vicente Guaita (£4.5m) deserves a mention as a budget goalkeeper for those FPL managers perhaps looking to sell Robert Sanchez (£4.6m), while there is bonus points potential for Marc Guehi (£4.5m). However, Tyrick Mitchell (£4.5m) may be the best option of all, who we covered as a differential prospect prior to Saturday’s 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Further forward, Conor Gallagher (£5.8m) – who is top for transfers in ahead of Gameweek 12 – is both Palace’s leading shot-taker and chance creator, while Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) has five attacking returns in his last six starts. Elsewhere, Odsonne Edouard (£6.5m) is another intriguing differential, though he has been played out on the left flank in the last three Gameweeks, diminishing his goal threat somewhat.

LIVERPOOL

Robertson and Watkins injury latest as Son starts up front again in Kane absence 3

Next six: ARS | SOU | eve | wol | AVL | NEW

Despite seeing their 25-game unbeaten run come to an end on Sunday, Liverpool have made a solid start to the current campaign, with six wins, four draws and one defeat so far.

Now, they are about to embark on a run of fixtures which includes four Anfield encounters in their next six, against Arsenal, Southampton, Aston Villa and Newcastle United, plus away trips to Merseyside rivals Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

Defensively, the Reds have conceded just 11 goals in their 11 league games to date, which has included six clean sheets, though it’s debatable whether or not further investment is required beyond Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.7m).

However, their attacking form has been nothing short of elite, as Jurgen Klopp’s side sit top for goals scored (31), attempts (215), shots in the box (146) and efforts on target (71) this season. That suggests adding Diogo Jota (£7.5m) to Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) in our midfield set-ups could be a wise move, in light of Roberto Firmino’s (£8.8m) hamstring injury that could see him miss over four weeks.

MANCHESTER UNITED

FPL Gameweek 10 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned 16

Next six: wat | che | ARS | CRY | nor | bre

Manchester United are hardly firing on all cylinders right now, with a 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 10 papering over the cracks which were all too evident in their recent losses to Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester City.

However, their fixtures between now and the end of the year are about as good as it gets, with matches against Watford (a), Norwich City (a), Brentford (a), Newcastle United (a) and Burnley (h) before we enter January. 

There is, of course, an argument to hold off on investing till Gameweek 15, once Chelsea (a) and an in-form Arsenal (h) are out of the way, but with a trip to Vicarage Road up next after the international break, it’s no surprise to see them rank fourth (and third defensively) on our Season Ticker over the next six matches.

In terms of personnel, it’s hard to get too excited about any of their defenders right now, but popular pre-season pick Luke Shaw has now dropped to £5.2m and been deployed as a wing-back in recent matches. Further forward, things get a little more interesting, with Marcus Rashford (£9.4m) returning to fitness, Bruno Fernandes (£11.7m) ticking over with three assists in his last five, and of course, the world class talent of Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) leading the line. For those investing in Kane, a switch to the Portuguese forward in Gameweek 16 looks like a sound strategy.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

Kane and Wilson enter FPL differential conversation ahead of Gameweek 9 3

Next six: BRE | ars | NOR | BUR | lei | liv

Eddie Howe’s appointment as Newcastle United head coach has coincided with an appealing set of forthcoming fixtures, as the Magpies sit second on our Season Ticker over the next four Gameweeks.

Newly-promoted Brentford and Norwich City are up next at St James’ Park, followed by Burnley, with a trip to Arsenal the only red blob in sight.

The Toon Army’s form has been nothing short of abysmal so far, as they are now the only Premier League team without a win, but those three home games detailed above do feel like a golden opportunity to kickstart the Howe era.

Given the new coaches “we love to attack, be front foot, play with speed” quotes from his opening press conference, Callum Wilson (£7.3m) could offer real value, especially given the dearth of in-form FPL forwards elsewhere. Aside from that, options look thin, though if deployed out-of-position, Matt Ritchie (£4.9m) has the potential to do well.

ALSO CONSIDER…

Mbeumo and Toney 1

Sitting top of our Season Ticker over the next six Gameweeks, at least from an attacking perspective, are Premier League newcomers Brentford (new | EVE | tot | lee | WAT | MUN).

During that time, The Bees take on Newcastle United (a), Leeds United (a) and Watford (h), all of whom rank near the bottom for non-pen xGC.

However, patience is understandably wearing a little thin for FPL managers, who have seen Bryan Mbeumo (£5.6m) and Ivan Toney (£6.7m) fail to bag a single attacking return between them over the last four Gameweeks. 

The question is: have the wheels completely come off, or can they get back on track in the coming weeks? Looking at their short-term numbers from Gameweeks 8 to 11, there isn’t a lot wrong in an attacking sense, as they comfortably rank in the top five for goal attempts, shots in the box and efforts on target.

Eddie Howe’s first interview, where he hinted that his Newcastle United team would play on the front-foot and attack, also suggests that Mbeumo and Toney may be worth holding onto, at least for one more week.

Auto Draft 16

Finally, we should really give Manchester City (EVE | WHU | avl | wat | WOL | LEE) a mention, too, and it goes without saying that their assets are worthy of investment, with Joao Cancelo (£6.5m) posting elite all-round numbers, and the likes of Phil Foden (£8.3m) and Gabriel Jesus (£8.7m) impressing further forward.

The latter, notably, has now made nine of Pep Guardiola’s Premier League starting XI’s in 2021/22, only missing the opening day defeat at Tottenham Hotspur and Gameweek 8 visit of Burnley, having arrived back late from international duty.

    We're getting there lads. We can start looking forward to FPL returning in about 5 days.

  2. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    15 days, 11 hours ago

    Anything standing out here to move.. A few ideas. Still have my WC which needs to be considered.

    Sanchez- should I just keep this GW or move Bachmann -> Steele/Foster.
    Gray/Benhrama-> Gallagher, Cornet, Son (if downgrading Vardy)?
    Vardy-> Wilson?

    Sanchez.
    TAA, Chilwell, Cancelo, Livramento.
    Salah, Raphinha, Benrahma.
    Vardy, Jimenez, Antonio.
    Bachmann, Rudiger, Gray, Bissouma.
    2ft, 1.1 ITB. WC. OR about 45k.

    1. NABIL - otai FPL
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      I'd do the GK transfer. Gray upgrade is also a decent way to use 1 FT but getting the right one is kinda lottery.

    2. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Guaita, Son, Wilson?

      1. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        Could do these 3 moves for a -4 yes. May do this. Guaita/Sanchez rotation for a bit.

    3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 2 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Gray & Bacman > Gallagher & Foster

      1. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        Tough game for Foster this week though.
        Considering Steele for just 1 game or Guaita if going for a rotation with Sanchez. Ramsdale another possibility depending on my other move.
        Gallagher in for Gray makes sense too. Can move on Benrahma next GW probably then.

    4. beerhockeyrock
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      I'd plump for Gallagher (already have Sanchez, Foster as backup)
      I'm getting Gallagher, (Mbueno) Sent Gray and Benhrama away weeks ago
      I've got a second FT and there was a pencilled in plan invovling Vardy to Son
      Spurs didn't play well, I'm gonna wait for them to produce before I pull that trigger
      Palace have great run of fixtures, 10 weeks
      Mbuenos poor returns while watching Gallagher hoover up massive points has been tough
      Someone else said Foster and Gallagher, not sexy, but may put out the fire for now

      1. Don Van Vliet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        15 days, 7 hours ago

        Mbeumo*

    5. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      If you can afford Benrahma to Jota that would be appealing

  3. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 2 Years
    15 days, 11 hours ago

    Rate WC
    Guatia Foster
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell Reguilon White
    Salah Son Gallagher Raph Brownhill
    CR7 Hwang Davis

    1. NABIL - otai FPL
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      I like the 4-4-2 / 5-4-1 set-up.

      I know you'd like some Arsenal cover at the back, but I still think Livra is the best 5th Def than White.

      Rest is very good. Hopefully Gerrard will resurrect Davis!

    2. Sz21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      I think I would go Jota in there. Bowen or Barnes are interesting options too to consider consdering recent form.
      Not really liking the Hwang pick either.

      Hard to fit them all in though. I think CR7 is taking up a lot of space.
      Wilson instead and then upgrade Brownhill to Jota maybe is what I would consider.

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 2 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        Jota is a good shout but would need to work out how to get CR7 back in GW15

  4. boc610

    yet another white ex pro gets a big job after having very little experience (granted Stevie G did 3 years at Gers but getting that was a big job in the first and he got it with only having worked at the liverpool academy ) Lampard and Terry could both end up with big jobs in the near future to. Its not their fault but its worth recalling what Danny rose said about it not worth if for a black ex pro going into management. I think 5 BAME in entire league (?) so its clear something is terribly wrong and needs fixing.

    1. BROOKLYN FREE AGENT

      • 10 Years
      15 days, 10 hours ago

      Vieira's success at Palace can only help things. I wish Henry had had more managerial success early on, as he'd be a massive upgrade just to listen to amongst the PL manager news conferences. As fans, who should we be bigging up to land a job?

  5. eish

    Ramsdale
    James,Rudiger,Cancelo, Walker

    Kane, Vardy, Toney

    Foster.....Coady, Brownhill Luiz

    0.7 ITB

    Can someone please help me to find out a way to get TAA.?

    I've gone without him since he got injured and pigeonholed my plan to get him back when I knee-jerked raphinha to foden. I just can't see a way in?

    Please ,I live every week in fear.

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Walker or rudiger probably the ones to go. How much are you short if you lose either of those?

      1. eish
        • 7 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        I with thinking rudger too, I'm short 1.3
        and with walker 1.5

    2. NABIL - otai FPL
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Downgrade Vardy or Kane. Upgrade Coady or Walker.

      Problem sorted

    3. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Walker and Rudger to Livramento and TAA

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        This can work if you don't mind playing livra every week. Your bench will be poor for the busy festive period though. Losing one of vardy or kane is probably the best way forward

    4. yeahbuddy
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 7 hours ago

      Downgrade Vardy and Walker to TAA

  6. fish&chips

    How to use a transfer here? Interested in Jota, foden, son and cancelo but not sure I want to get rid of anyone.i guess havertz can go if either werner or Lukaku are back

    Guaita, 4.0
    TAA, Chilwell, James, Semedo, Livra
    Salah, Raphina, mbeumo, havertz, Sissoko
    Antonio, Jimenez, Toney

    4.7m ITB, 2 FT

    1. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Do you want to persist with the Chelsea defender double up? Cancelo a way in, now that Chelsea's games are getting tougher.

      Then Havertz up to Son with the FT.

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        Yes I was thinking about this. Difficult to decide who to lose out of the 2 though and they could still do damage. Jota seems to be the priority to make the most of firmino's absence. Might just do havertz to Jota and save the other one

        1. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 11 hours ago

          I never get on with Jota. Even when Firmino is out, he still manages to get subbed off at 60, can sometimes spend the game on the periphery, or miss a sitter. I won't be going back to him again.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Upgrading Semedo to one of the col kids would be a good move.
      But over the upcoming intense period, I'd want a stronger bench and I'd convert 2-point Sissoko to the likes of a Gallagher, ESR or a Hammer. Got enough money to do both, mind.

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 11 hours ago

        Semedo needs to go soon for sure but Norwich and Burnley in the next 3. Surely worth holding for those? Then find the cash to upgrade him to cancelo.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 11 hours ago

          That's fair enough. Would you start him though, or hope he comes off the bench? The wait for Cancelo could be costly - but you can say the same for anyone. I can't get to Son quickly, and I'm worried about that.

          1. fish&chips
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            15 days, 11 hours ago

            Think I've got to play him in those. I can bench toney or mbeumo and livra. Cancelo may well outscore him over the next 3 but worth a gamble I reckon. I can go havertz and raph to son and Jota. Not sure if I want to lose raph yet though.

    3. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      With so much itb, you can afford Semedo and Havertz to Cancelo and Son

    4. NABIL - otai FPL

      Semedo to Cancelo. Enough of the torture.

      This is tough. No obvious weak link. No need to upgrade Duffy or Mbeumo with that team, although Gallagher and Regs might be interesting upgrades.

      Sorry I'd pass.

      Ivan Trolley just want to be like Trollkaku

          Haha indeed. Lack of good picks in striking department (premiums no show, DCL/bambam out, Ings/Ollie/Richa disappointing) means he's still the go to option atm.

          How lucky he is.

  9. KieranKA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    15 days, 11 hours ago

    I'm mulling over a few options over the break – posted this elsewhere but interested to see what you think.

    A) Mount + Mbeumo + Vardy → Son + Jota + Wilson (–4)
    B) Mount + James → Son + Reguilón
    C) Mount + Toney → Jota + Wilson
    D) Something else?

    Current team (2 FT, 2.0 ITB):
    Sánchez // Foster
    Trent Cancelo James // Livramento Veltman
    Salah Mount Raphinha Mbeumo // Brownhill
    Vardy Antonio Toney

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Maybe A. Is B a trick?

    2. NABIL - otai FPL
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      Mount to Jota
      or
      Mount to Son bu downgrading Raph/Mbeumo (thibk Normann could work)

  10. NABIL - otai FPL
    • 9 Years
    15 days, 11 hours ago

    Guaita
    TAA Chilwell Cancelo Livra Laporte
    Salah Son Foden
    Antonio Toney

    Foster Hwang ESR Brownhill. 1 FT, 2.9 itb

    team is GTG right? Or should I try to do some swagger move like Laporte to Regs, Brownhill to Gallagher or Toney to Wilson?

        Wow... Does plp realise Mbuemo plays against Newcastle

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          B then

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      15 days, 10 hours ago

      D. Brentford as a team are the worst in the league on current form and with key players missing.

    5. ebb2sparky
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 9 hours ago

      I have A, B & C and plan to bench A. I suspect if I had D then I’d probably bench him over A but it’s very close.

  12. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years
    15 days, 11 hours ago

    Have a couple options.. would love anyone’s opinions thank you (-4) have Kane already.

    A-Vardy and Mbuemo to Son and Wilson.
    B-Vardy and D.Luiz/Sissoko to Hwang and Son
    C-Vardy and D.Luiz/Sissoko to Jota and Jesus.

    1. NABIL - otai FPL
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 11 hours ago

      All viable options.

      I'd do D - keep Vardy

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    15 days, 10 hours ago

    On WC. Planned Kane to help get Ronaldo in GW15, but 3 interesting options below:

    A. Jota, (Davis), Kane
    B. (Normann), Wilson, Kane
    C. Son, Wilson, (Davis) +2.0m (!)

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA James Cancelo Reguillon (Livra)
    Salah Foden *** Gallagher (Brownhill)
    Antonio *** ***

    1. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 10 hours ago

      C could enable Gallagher > Jota, and possibly a GK upgrade

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        C

      2. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        I prefer this. I also prefer Guaita/Ramsdale if on WC. Also, I'd consider Jesus or Cornett punt on WC. Kane is still enigmatic atm but could be solid moving forward.

    2. ClaudesMackerelelé

          No idea my guy. No forward is looking particularly great right now so go for it

            • 1 Year
            15 days, 10 hours ago

            Ta it’s to help fund getting son although means losing Jesus

              • 3 Years
              15 days, 10 hours ago

              I'd keep Jesus over Son currently tho. Could have easily been on the points another night last week

                    15 days, 10 hours ago

                    You reckon mount & Jesus to son & pukki could work out ?

          Bogart, a young Brando, Clooney maybe. But Pukki, really?

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            Pukki scores a few and he suddenly becomes popular!

    2. JoeTweaks
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        If I remember correctly, chelsea's defense under Lampard was the problem,so pukki should at least score more

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          Can see Norwich going attacking if first 2 games at home so lamps will want wins

      • Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        No. Lampard is a terrible manager and they will get relegated.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 9 hours ago

          Yeah, they would get relegated even with the best manager in the world, let alone with Lampard.

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            15 days, 9 hours ago

            Yeh agree will get relegated but can see initial
            New manager bounce plus May score more goals in next 2-3 games

    3. tbos83
      • 1 Year

            or if you can ignore Son, Digne and Christensen out for Recce/Rudi/Cancelo + cheapie

            Aah as expected.

            Vardy is a decent hold, but I like E out of those. Sets you up for the upcoming GWs, plus you don't really need 2 BRE attackers.

            1. sirmorbach

            Vardy to Wilson, Mbeumo to Jota is also viable

              • 5 Years

    5. Finding Timo

      Seems to be very mixed views on whether to get jota or son on here? Really difficult to decide

      1. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        Jota > Son. But all the midpriced mids > Jota 😉

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          Zaha & Gallagher seem popular but prefer jota over them

          1. Zim0
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            15 days, 10 hours ago

            Bowen and Trossard the ones for me.

        2. Zim0
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          But nah seriously Jota could get bumper hauls. I'm just very annoyed annoyed with him for not hauling much last time Firmino was out. Such great underlying data and absolutely nothing because of Mane

      2. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        I have Son but still want Jota. Short 0.2 to do Brownhill > Jota straight swap so might downgrade Laporte in GW13 to fund it.

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          Be good to have both

          1. NABIL - otai FPL
            • 9 Years
            15 days, 10 hours ago

            Yep, with the death of striking options atm, 4-5-1 or 3-5-2 could be a masterstroke

            1. Finding Timo
              • 1 Year
              15 days, 10 hours ago

              Man City stopped getting cleansheets so reckon downgrade Laporte

              1. NABIL - otai FPL
                • 9 Years
                15 days, 10 hours ago

                still CS here and there but yeah I understand, not as solid as yesteryears.

                He's due a goal though 😛

      3. Bobby Digital

        Son over Jota

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 9 hours ago

          Prefer son but means having to lose Jesus to get

      Ramsdale,

      Foster, Livramento, Duffy, Brownhill

      Currently eyeing up this move.

      Vardy + Mbeumo > Wilson +Son

      Yes? No?

      Any other suggestions welcome.

      1. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        No. Duffy to Regs in preparation for GW13-15. Or Raph to Jota.

        Yes if you can't ignore Son

        1. FPLMACKEM
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          Son or Kane are more of a priority.

          1. NABIL - otai FPL
            • 9 Years
            15 days, 10 hours ago

            no denying, at least on paper.

            However, Jota shout also be considered as he's playing in a much better side atm

    7. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 10 hours ago

      Premier League dates for next year confirmed:

      Starts 6th August 2022
      Ends 28th May 2023

      Break for the World Cup between 14th November and 26th December.

      1. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years

        Ugh. Going to be an ugly FPL season.

        1. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 10 hours ago

          Hopefully pretty straightforward/standard in 2022, but then chance for lots of mess and DGWs in 2023.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          15 days, 9 hours ago

          I think it'll be a great FPL season. Any major schedule disruptions are great for FPL players to take advantage of DGWs and stuff.

          Not good for the players though. The football calendar is absolutely brutal nowadays.

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        Wow

        Chelsea for instance have 11 fixtures in that time this season inc CL. Guess no IBs is the only way to make up time as 6th August isn't that much earlier. Even so it looks really tight.

      3. Yank Revolution
        • 10 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Awful

      4. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 7 hours ago

        On the plus side, quite a few DGWs.
        On the downside, lots of physically tired and mentally checked out players immediately pre and post WC. Could see a lot of rotations next season, especially after the WC.

    8. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 10 hours ago

      Silly to make transfer now for Gallagher and maybe James? If I don't might be priced out, why are people making transfers before International games!

      1. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        I really think so

      2. Black Knights
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 10 hours ago

        Yeah, games haven't even started yet. So much that could go wrong for anyone - best to wait until this time next week at least.

      3. ClaudesMackerelelé
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        Has Gallagher had his points?
        Lucky deflection last goal, Zaha goal vs City was deflected for his assistant.
        Eze back soon too

        1. DavvaMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          15 days, 9 hours ago

          This is my worry I am sitting on the fence whether to bring him in.

      4. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 7 hours ago

        Because maybe 5% of FPL managers actually know how to use price change sites to know if there's really a risk of being priced out or not.

    9. Bertonian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 10 hours ago

      Bench 2 of these. If Newcastle plan to go on the attack that could lead to high scoring game against Brentford.

      The law of sod will get me whichever way I go!

      A Toney
      B Mbeumo
      C Livra
      D Raph

      1. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years

        BD. I don't like to bench PK taker, and Livra has NOR

    10. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 9 hours ago

      Assuming no injuries over the IB, best move here?

      A) Saka -> Jota
      B) Saka & Vardy -> Son & Jimmy/Wilson

      Ramsdale
      Trent, Cancelo, Chilwell, James
      Salah, Foden, Raphina, Saka
      Vardy, Antonio

      Foster, Livramento, Brownhill, Davis
      Bank 1.4m, 2FTs

      1. basilfawlty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        I'd go A but I'm in same boat as you, wondering about ditching Vardy.

      2. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        It's basically the main conundrums this week,

        - Son or Jota?
        - keep or sell Vardy? If sell, Wilson or Jimmy?

        Imo it's down to personal preferences. All viable options. Fwiw I'd prioritize Son over Jota, and giving Vardy WAT in GW13 if I still own him

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        B probably.

        What about Kane + Gallagher over Son + Wilson?

    11. basilfawlty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      15 days, 9 hours ago

      Any thoughts, what to do here? Original plan was Vardy to Kane, then switch to CR7, but concerned Kane will flop.

      Ramsdale Foster
      TAA Cancelo James Chilwell Livramento
      Salah Foden Raphinha Mbeumo Brownhill
      Vardy Antonio A.Armstrong
      1FT 2.0 ITB

      A) Vardy to Kane
      B) Vardy to Wilson
      C) Mbeumo to Jota
      D) Vardy & Mbeumo > Son & Wilson (-4)
      E) Save

      1. NABIL - otai FPL
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        C or E. I'd do E

      2. ClaudesMackerelelé
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 9 hours ago

        I dont think it hurts to save them you get the lay of the land
        Biggest scorer in that lot tho I think Is kane

    12. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 9 hours ago

      Which combo?
      A.Vardy Jota
      B. Wilson Son

        Solid moves. Foden is due a rest I think.

            Thinking about changing duffy this week, 2fts and not sure what else to do.
            Which do you prefer?
            A) mitchell (have guaita)
            B) lamptey
            C) lowton
            D) dier
            E) aarons (would allow mbeumo to Gallagher next week)

            1. Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              15 days, 8 hours ago

              Do you need to play him? Lamptey is the most exciting alternative.

              1. waltzingmatildas

                15 days, 8 hours ago

                No probably not. That's why it's tempting to go to someone cheap!

            FPL "expert" Vicky reckons Emerson Royale is a better Spurs transfer option than Reguilon! Why? Reg is not on international duty, Emerson is with Brazil. Conte has shown Reg videos of his Chelsea and Italian teams and wants him attacking in the box. Only 0.1 more expensive. Her dimwit husband may be giving advice.

            1. Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              15 days, 8 hours ago

              Average position says Reg is a better option...

              I would assume Conte is showing all of his players tactical videos, not just Reguilon.

                    FPL Family. On a video with Az the other week, she went "Yes, but No, but Yes, but No", when discussing Chilwell and Alonso, blundering that Alondo would play up front! So funny, yet weird. At least she knew who these two players were.

                      I dont think Sam is a bad pundit, so she recommended the less attractive propsect, he is a differential is all. You can never expect people to back a differential, because well, by their very nature they are a differential for a reason and go against the grain.

                  I’d go Royale too by the way. Never understand people getting upset when someone wants a player they don’t.

                  Reg is the better pick right now imo, but lets see how Emerson does

                  Relying on these self-proclaimed experts is like trusting an 18th Century doctor to perform a medical assessment by using phrenology (assessing the skull contours).

                  As for the Spurs WBs, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Doherty nailed the RWB slot in due course. He'll offer much more threat than Emerson does. And if you think that's far-fetched, consider what Conte did with the one-paced Alonso.

                No hot topic for the Gerrard appointment?
                Great appointment for both parties IMO, I think Gerrard will do well by Villa. And well, perfect job for Gerrard, not too much pressure and the ideal stepping stone for Pool job.

                I think Villa players will be appearing in our squads soon enuf

                  I still have Ings 🙄 He's probably going out for Wilson this week. Or should I reconsider?

                    Well his next 5 fixtures are awful tbh, especially given Ings not having any form, and even being red flagged now.
                    Brighton, Palace, City, Leicester, Liverpool

                    Brighton and Palace will be very tough games for Villa, be interesting to see what results they can get from those but 6 points would be very good I guess.

                  Hopefully we can expect some Phil Brown-style teamtalks out on the pitch for the cameras

                  Preferably with a smattering of “this does not slip” thrown in for extra player motivation
