Fixtures

Double Gameweek 22 confirmed for eight teams

The revised fixture list for Double Gameweek 22 was announced by the Premier League on Thursday morning, with eight top-flight sides playing twice.

Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Chelsea, Leicester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Watford are the clubs who have two fixtures in the upcoming Gameweek.

There is a caveat: this proposed schedule is subject to change should any FA Cup third-round matches involving these teams or their second Double Gameweek 22 opponents be postponed this weekend. In the event of that happening, the outstanding cup ties would be played in this free midweek instead.

GAMEWEEK 22 DOUBLES

  • Brentford: Liverpool (a), Man Utd (h)
  • Brighton: Crystal Palace (h), Chelsea (h)
  • Burnley: Leicester (h), Watford (h)
  • Chelsea: Manchester City (a), Brighton (a)
  • Leicester: Burnley (a), Spurs (h)
  • Man Utd: Aston Villa (a), Brentford (a)
  • Spurs: Arsenal (h), Leicester (a)
  • Watford: Newcastle (a), Burnley (a)

There is a real mixed bag of ‘doubles’ here, with Brentford’s two games unappealing and Chelsea and Spurs having far from straightforward tests.

The best pairings are arguably those of Watford and Burnley, although which players from these two clubs beyond Emmanuel Dennis (£6.1m) and/or Joshua King (£5.8m) represent attractive targets is another question.

Liverpool, West Ham United and even Everton, whose players some of us would have loaded up on ahead of Double Gameweek 21, have very decent ‘single’ Gameweeks, meanwhile, so as ever a balancing act would seem to be the way to go.

DATES AND TIMES OF THE ADDITIONAL FIXTURES

Tuesday 18 January

19:30 Burnley v Watford
20:00 Brighton v Chelsea

Wednesday 19 January

19:30 Leicester v Spurs
20:00 Brentford v Man Utd

    Possible -8 for Salah, Gallagher, Gelhardt to Maddison, Cork and Ronaldo, and play the Bench Boost chip.

    More likely just do Salah > Maddison

  2. DB_00
    • 6 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Locadia > Dennis with the FT probably. Which one for the hit?

    A) Dawson > Reggy
    B) Martinelli > Maddison

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      B

    2. Aston VII iia hahaha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      21 days, 22 hours ago

      You'll want Martinelli back...

      1. DB_00
        • 6 Years
        21 days, 22 hours ago

        I have Saka already

  3. Zenith UK

    I feel like the DGW hasn't changed my plans too much but it has thrown a mini-spanner in my plans... 1FT & 7.8M ITB!

    DDG
    Trent (c), Cancelo, Johnson, Keane
    Son, Bernardo, Bowen, Gray
    Dennis, Antonio

    Steele, Mahrez, Gelhardt, Rudiger

    Initially I was thinking about losing Mahrez and Rudiger for Robbo and someone like Jota or Maddison (no idea why Maddison after I've stopped and thought about it today). With Chelsea's defensive woes I think City could obliterate them in a show of "here's why we're the champions" and have been debating KDB for a few weeks (easy to switch to Salah upon his return).

    I'm still happy with Bowen & Antonio 4th highest scoring team in the PL this year against the 3rd highest conceding team (Leeds). Cancelo/Bernardo already discussed. Gray.... It's Norwich. Dennis double. TAA speaks for himself and DDG has a DGW. (Would probably bench Johnson and Keane for the incoming Robbo & KDB.

    Thoughts/suggestions/what haven't I thought of?

    Ah a bit disappointed with the dgwk fixtures. When are the next likely gwks the postponed fixtures are likely to be played in?

  5. Bollard
    • 9 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Could really do with Foster being back for GW22 - that would be awesome

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Its not the despair,its the hope that kills you mate

  6. Rohirrims
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Would you BB a bench of Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Dias and Watkins?

    1. KEN YA DIG IT
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      I wouldnt

    2. dshv
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      No

  7. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Awful doubles!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Arguably on fixtures it's Manchester United and Burnley with the best looking double ups.

      Then you consider form and where you want your transfers to go.

      Still points to FH but speculative, as ever!

      1. Bollard
        • 9 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        Think Watford looks a good DGW, with Dennis (C)

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          21 days, 23 hours ago

          Yeah, potentially but Watford are rocky too.

          Could easily lose both.

          As you say they do tend to score as well.

          Real relegation shoot out for them and Newcastle mid season.

  8. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Even though people can plan I'm still not hitting any transfers or even a free hit until after the FA Cup 3rd round games complete.

    So there's more info but still a wait and see situation.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Here's the TV fixtures Friday till Monday when Manchester United play Aston Villa.

    Ddg foster
    Cancelo trent reguilon livra cash
    Son foden jota maddison bowen
    Watkins ronaldo davis

    Watkins and davis to dennis and king (-4) and BB ??

  10. Gooner97
    • 8 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Easy 4 points for Ronaldo.

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Twelve with TC

    2. Aston VII iia hahaha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      I think Maddison is the one to C

    3. jay01
      • 7 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      He probably wont play both games

  11. AzzaroMax99
    • 5 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    What to do with Dalot now he has dgw incoming? I have DDG also.

    DDG 4.0
    TAA Cancelo Alonso AitNouri Dalot

    1. Benzo
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      I'm getting rid of him for Reg or Royal

  12. Is DGW22 worth a FH?
    Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Are people really going to free hit and not select Antonio and Bowen against Leeds at home ?

    And if you will have them do you really need to free hit seeing as that’s already 2 slots + Taa, jota, cancelo taken up in your free hit team

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Looking at my team I think I have some "decent" DGWers already from the better teams.

      Ronaldo, Son, Maddison, King, Davies, DDG, Alonso

      Add to that the 5 you mentioned and it probably looks like the FH isn't worth it for me.

    2. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      No way for me. One FT can get me

      DDG*/Bach*
      TAA Reggie* Cancelo
      Son*, Mount*, Bowen, Jota
      Dennis* Antonio Kane*/Ronaldo*

      Gray (NOR) Tierney, Livramento

      Livramento to a dgw def (5.4m) -4 mean benching Cancelo, so unlikely to bother with that

    3. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      I don't think Cancelo is a pick this week tbh. Chelsea are a good team. They can easily score.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        Hmm, he can still punish

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        So can Cancelo

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          21 days, 23 hours ago

          I mean sure. But odds are in favor of going for a doubler instead.

          1. Wild Rover
            • 11 Years
            21 days, 22 hours ago

            Not for a hit. If I was playing FH I'd probably leave him out, but OP is talking about not playing FH.

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      The dgw teams could end up with a single gw and the sgw teams blanking.

      Imagine if dgw22 becomes navigating bgw22!?

      In that scenario it's chaos bur waiting until the FA Cup 3rd round concludes, or not as may be, on Monday is critical before any transfers.

    5. The Tinkerman
      • 6 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      I have 6 DGW players and will take -4 to do Salah > Ronaldo (C) and leave it at that I think.

      Got Son, De Gea, Alonso, King, Reguilon… aside from Ronaldo there not really anyone that scares me enough to warrant FH.

      Also will okay Bowen, Antonio and probably Raphinha, and bench Cancelo.

      1. The Tinkerman
        • 6 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        *play Bowen

    6. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ CMIUK
      • 7 Years
      21 days, 21 hours ago

      FH too risky for me. Too many SGWers with good fixtures. Lots of other opportunities will come to use it.

    7. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 1 hour ago

      Only got 3 DGWers but nobody else is compelling and I could even roll.

    8. FOMFF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      20 days, 21 hours ago

      No for me. I'll have 3 DGW'ers (Sanchez, Rudiger and probably Son) and I'm good with it. No particularly exciting doubles with teams out of form (United), injuries (Leicester) and tricky 2nd fixtures (Spurs/Chelsea). Pot luck with the rest (Brentford, Watford, Burnley). I'll save mine for the inevitable scramble in the final quarter of the season.

  13. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Would you consider 1 or 2 hits and BB?
    0.1 short for Broja Martineli to Dennis Maddison…

    DDG/Foster
    TAA/Cancelo/Coufal/Alonso/Duffy
    Son/Jota/Bowen/Gray/Martineli
    Ronaldo/Antonio/Broja

  14. Tomsk

    What are people’s plans for Bench Boost? Could be tricky to even get all 15 playing once when champions league restarts(rotation).
    I’m just not sure what people are waiting for?

    1. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      It’s tricky with covid cases at the moment but if all the fixtures are going ahead, then it could be worth getting it out the way.

  15. Pep's Money Laundry
    • 6 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    I for one am happy with hose fixtures. if they were really nice fixtures, everyone would doing the same.

    With those fixtures I can most probably play my FH and make decent gains whilst others will completely ignore some of the doubles. Brighton, Burnley & Watford give us some decent differentials

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      If you FH would you have any single GW players? As most will likely outscore the doubles making FH very difficult

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        I think you'd blend form sgw players with some dgw picks.

        Perhaps holding is the best policy?

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          21 days, 23 hours ago

          Just initally looks a pointless double to me for the most part.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            21 days, 23 hours ago

            Initially*

      2. Pep's Money Laundry
        • 6 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        Liverpool & West ham can't be ignored as their single fixtures are too good. Otherwise the rest can be made up with teams that have a dgw.

        Initial thought is 8 dgw players plus 2 Liverpool and Bowen

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Yep. Bear in mind some of these doubles could become single game weeks.

      Some single game week teams could still easily lose their fixture too.

      Imagine if it becomes a navigating blank gw22, not dgw22!!

      1. Sterling Archer
        • 4 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        yip, fully expect at least a couple FA Cup games to be postponed!

        Like always, sit tight until the last minute, well maybe not the last minute as the site will crash

    3. Benzo
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Completely agree, takes the fun out of a dgw when everyone has the same players

  16. grennans2
    • 1 Year
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Is this worth a bench boost? Thanks

    De Gea
    Alonso - TAA - Cancelo
    Maddison - Bowen - Jota - Son
    Ronaldo (c) - King - Dennis (v)

    Ramsdale - Gray - Tierney - Coufal

    1. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      50-50

  17. Yome
    • 10 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    What is the best defensive option for Man U for the double gw? Varane, AWB, Maguire, Telles?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      N/A

      1. Yome
        • 10 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        Both fixtures are good on paper, I need a replacement for James.

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          21 days, 23 hours ago

          Get a Bri def and pocket the cash

          1. Yome
            • 10 Years
            21 days, 23 hours ago

            I may as well do a straight swap to Alonso or Rudiger. Chelsea defence better long term, event if they have an away game at City.

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              21 days, 23 hours ago

              Maybe, but no fixt in 24 & 25

              1. Yome
                • 10 Years
                21 days, 23 hours ago

                Didn't know... thanks! I will look elsewhere or keep him on the bench. Have TAA, Cancelo and Regulion for a 3 men defence in DGW 22

        2. Qaiss
          • 6 Years
          21 days, 23 hours ago

          I don’t think Villa and Brentford will look at the United game and feel petrified. Did you see how they played against Norwich and Newcastle, and again on Monday night.

    2. Ze_Austin

    3. Wild Rover

      Don't even think about it

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Ronaldo for his EO just incase

    5. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      None..
      I have Dalot and hope he starts..

  18. Gizzachance
    • 7 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    dgw conondrum, when sgw players like jota, taa, antonio, bowen, wolves def etc all have good fixtures.
    how many dgw players people going for and how? trans, f/h etc

  19. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Is it worth to get Telles?

  20. Smokey_Lowkey
    • 3 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Would you do Antonio - > Dennis for a hit this week? Already have Bowen.

    Antonio with a decent fixture this week but Dennis with two...

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      The hit likely cancels out the double. Not for me

    2. Ian & Zen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 12 hours ago

      No

  21. Analyst_Dan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    Currently have a 'Free Hit' in play during GW21, planning to do the same for GW22, but currently when attempting to do so, I have no option to 'Free Hit' my squad when completing transfers, any ideas why? GW21 is my first 'Free Hit' of the season, before anyone asks.

    1. RUN DCL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Can’t play 2 in a row

      1. Analyst_Dan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        Simple one that makes sense, frustrating mind. Although, I also get the feeling a better DGW will come about before the seasons end. Cheers for the answer (y)

  22. MIGHTY JOE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    With one player with DGW (Rudiger), surely this is the time for my first FH? Cheers.

    1. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      I'd say so. Some on here are well set for the double but the likes of you and me seem better served using the FH, especially if it's our first

    2. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      If you only have 1 DGW player and triple City then yeah, I would.

  23. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    All, given mendy out & only 4 DGWers assume worth FH? Thanks team is: Mendy(out)
    Reg - TAA - Cancelo - Dawson
    Gray - Bowen - Jota - Son
    Antonio - Dennis
    (Foster - livra - Benteke - Esr)

    1. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      Yep, looks like

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        21 days, 23 hours ago

        Thanks sorry meant only 3 DGWers but could get 4 after transfer so sounds like FH best

    2. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 22 hours ago

      Nope.
      You will have the mendy problem next week.
      Mendy to sanchez or DDG (not needed if Foster fit) and esr to madders would be better imo..

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        21 days, 22 hours ago

        Ok thanks will have a think although not sure even if foster for whether play

        1. acidicleo
          • 5 Years
          21 days, 22 hours ago

          In that case if you like sanchez or ddg this is the best week to take that hit as it's virtually free with their 2×2 points and solves issye for next gw too..

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            21 days, 22 hours ago

            Ok ta will look at both options - a -4 hit team v FH

  24. acidicleo
    • 5 Years
    21 days, 23 hours ago

    I was a happy Dennis owner until I sold him for Ronaldo due to AFCON concerns..

    Now with DGW want to buy a Watford player..

    A) Dennis (bit concerned he was subbed at HT and the other chap played well)
    B) King

    Who to buy?
    Watkins will make way as those 2 Watford fixtures are too good to ignore.

    1. Aston VII iia hahaha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 23 hours ago

      AVL is top of the fixture ticker

      1. acidicleo
        • 5 Years
        21 days, 22 hours ago

        Can always get him back for his double.

    2. Surgical Attack
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      same, going with King

    The double week fixtures dont really change my thinking. 6 doublers, 3 players (TAA, Jota and Bowen) who have a single game have a great fixtures so wont be transfered out or even benched. The other 2 Cancelo and Foden I wont be selling either as they have great fixtures after the double. Wont be using a chip and in actual fact I may even roll the transfer as I dont see an obvious move.

      Kind of similar spot to me (post on next page). Can consider FH, but my SGW players all have great fixtures (2x WHU, 2x EVE, 2xLIV, Cancelo). Unsure what to do with FT, or roll which feels crazy in a DGW.

        I wouldnt worry. If your team is set up well dont feel as though you have to do a transfer just because its a double week.

    How's it going everyone?

    Like plenty of others, I'm weighing up whether to Free Hit or not.

    Even if I was to FH, I think I'd still leave it pretty late in case there are more postponements.

    I currently only have 4 DGW players and I have Salah, so I'm tempted to FH at this stage.

    What do you reckon?

    1FT 0.1ITB
    DDG**
    TAA Cancelo Rudiger** Johnson
    Son** Jota Bowen
    King** Antonio Edouard

    Steele Gundogan Livramento (Salah)

    Thanks!

    I went without Dennis on WC last week.. what a mistake that was, would you go Antonio to Dennis and upgrade Johnson to BB? Thanks all

      B easily.

      Bernardo is an odd pick but now that you still have, he's worth holding onto because GW23-25 are strong for City.

    RMT tool:
    Current team: 76 points, around 80 with 1ft.
    Potential FH team: 102 points (kept TAA and Jota in starting XI)
    Gain around 20 points. Worth it or just go with Bowen+Antonio and DCL Gray that have good fixtures in SGW?
