Frisking the Fixtures

Double Gameweek 21 announced for West Ham, Brentford and Everton

The news that Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers were waiting for – or part of it, at least – finally arrived on Friday, with the confirmation that we are to get a Double Gameweek 21.

West Ham United, Everton and Brentford are the three teams who will get a Double Gameweek, 16 teams will have a single Gameweek and Newcastle United will be without a fixture altogether.

A total of 22 postponed Premier League fixtures were outstanding before today’s announcement (18 due to Covid-19, one thanks to inclement weather and three future matches due to clashes with the Club World Cup and EFL Cup final) with three of them now rearranged for Double Gameweek 21.

The additional fixtures in Gameweek 21 are:

  • Southampton v Brentford
  • Everton v Leicester
  • West Ham v Norwich

It’s at this point where we bring up the dreaded C-word again: coronavirus. It goes without saying that the fixtures below are the mercy of the ongoing pandemic, so doubles could easily become singles or blanks in an instant.

We’ll have more coverage of the Double Gameweeks in the coming hours and days, while we’ve set up a Hot Topic to gauge your reactions here.

    is it worth doing Kane -> Antonio for free?

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Maybe if you have Son

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      No..keep Kane.

    3. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      No way

  2. 03farmboy
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 18 hours ago

    Son or Kane?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Have Sonny and would advise that but have a feeling that Hurricane time has come...

    2. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Son

  3. Meechoo115
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Is it better to target Everton with a likely DGW22 too?

      Already have Antonio.

      1. European Bob
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Probably but what players?

        1. Meechoo115
            27 days, 18 hours ago

            Gray? Issue is I need to sell James as well. No Everton defenders worth getting?

            1. European Bob
              • 9 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Keane I guess

        2. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          Everton have a nice run of fixtures although well out of form so mixed bag really.

      2. gellinmagellan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        27 days, 18 hours ago

        A) Galla > Bowen
        B) Galla + Saka + James > Bowen + Son + Royal for -8
        C) Galla + Salah > Bowen + Son - 4

        Basically does it make sense to get Son in for Salah if it means taking -4 only or better to do -8 and keep Salah?

      3. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Who is best option now as James replacement please?

        A....coufal

        B...cash

        Thanks

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Coufal

      4. HD7
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Ramsdale to
        DDG Pickford or Fab and why?

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          I did DDG because I thought he'd score more points

        2. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          Pickford could be a good punt

        3. bso
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          14 days, 9 hours ago

          Don’t trust MU to keep CS. Sa best option

      5. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        I've got Antonio already. Was probably taking a hit this week anyway with James out and some fires to deal with in midfield, so comfortable with the -4 I'd take with either of these. But which looks better?

        A. James & Gallagher to Bowen & Coufal (or other WHU defender)

        B. Gallagher & ESR to Gray and Bowen (may result in benching Dennis which isn't ideal)

      6. estheblessed
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        How's this looking for GW21

        Ramsdale
        Rudiger, AA, Cancelo
        Bowen(c), Son, Bruno, Gallagher, BSilva
        Watkins, Antonio

        Foster, Dennis, Reguillon, Manquillo

      7. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Alonso+Bilva+ESR->Targett+Bowen+Maddison(-8)

        Yes or no?

      8. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        1FT 3.3m ITB

        Guaita
        TAA Cancelo Livra*
        Son Foden Jota Bernardo
        Watkins Antonio King

        Foster* - ESR White James*

        James to Reg over a DGW defender? Then ESR/Bernardo to Bowen (-4)?

      9. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Ronaldo + Martinelli to Son + Antonio (-4) ?

      10. Mufc202020
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Kane or Ronny out for Antonio?

        A) Kane
        B) Ronny

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 5 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          Ronny

        2. iL PiStOlErO
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          No one. Keep both.

        3. iL PiStOlErO
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          And get Bowen. Change some mid.

          C - whoever your 3rd striker is

          1. Mufc202020
            • 2 Years
            27 days, 18 hours ago

            3rd striker is Watkins but can’t afford to move him unless I do a hit. Thoughts?

            1. Mufc202020
              • 2 Years
              27 days, 18 hours ago

              Also have Bowen

      11. griffzinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Michael Keane is the man. Brighton (H) Leicester ravaged by AFCON/Injuries (H) DGW21.

        DGW 22 as well NOR (A) and either Burnley or Newcastle.

        Looks good to me. Everton have a solid 11 back on the field for first time in ages. Covid permitting of course.

      13. DCL fit enough for our DGW21 squads?
        Tcheco
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Benitez on DCL:

        "Dominic is training with the team," added the Spaniard. "I've explained before that one thing is match fitness that you can improve by playing games and the other thing is fitness.

        "Fitness-wise he is getting better... Match-fitness, we will see. Maybe he scores three goals in the first half and we don't need to worry about his match fitness but I think the issue will be how long he can play if he starts the game or, if he comes from the bench, how much impact he can have on the game.

        "We are considering all of these things but he is training really well and he is really happy because he is with the team and is ready to play and score goals."

            I expect something like that. He is in my team now. There are not too many better options and no obvioud threat, Antonio and CR7/Kane we can afford.

        Looking at best use of ft in this crazy moment. Team is in good shape compared to others.

        Would you do:
        A) Broja+Rudi to Antonio+1)Targett or 2)Coufal

        B) also Bilva to Foden for -4 now?

        DDG 3.9

        James, Gallagher, Bernardo > Keane, Gray, Raphinha for a -4? Would mean benching Jota and King.

        Or just 2 transfers and play Jota?

        1. Keep calm and hoof me the b…
          • 12 Years

          Play Jota. A hit so you can bench him is madness

          • 11 Years

          Is it worth a hit to get Antonio in for Watkins?

          Will be rank damaging if he does anything and provided no injury and figure cancellation then would end up being a -2 hit

          1. Traction Engine Foot
            • 3 Years
            27 days, 18 hours ago

            Yes in the short term, but you may well want Watkins in 22
