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

    No way I'm using any chips this week.

    TAA and Jota home to Brentford
    Bowen, Soucek and Antonio home to Leeds
    Keane away to Norwich

        Exactly

        Although I'm permanently benching Keane until I sell him

        I think I'll never own an Everton player EVER again.

          Exactly, but it's Norwich.

          Could always sell him for Sanchez

              12 days, 18 hours ago

              Thinking Cucurella but that would make a 12 pt hit

            Keane away to Norwich is pretty useless lol
            Everton can’t keep a CS

              Theyve got to keep one eventually.. probably will be something like man city away lol

          3. Eh, just one more thing ...

            Same boat, can’t see any real value … of course depends on your team but the DGW looks pretty rubbish as it stands and could get even less appealing if the FA cup causes doubles to be cancelled.

            Livra Gallagher Broja
            To
            Dier Maddison Dennis for 8?

            Saves a chip
            Gives me potentially 8 dgws

                I'm benching Salah.

                He only misses two weeks and it's a hassle not worth having!

                Plenty of points to be had from a high value 14 man squad for 2 weeks, especially when Son is the only other premium worth owning atm!

                  2 weeks, but how many games?

                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      2 game weeks as of now
                      Any rearranged fixtures not there as of now.

                  What's the deal with Watkins?

                  Is he injured/out of favour?

                  Wonder what Klopp’s next excuse about City will be, now they’ve had a Covid outbreak.

                  Does FH and bench boost looks appealing to you for this fixture? You can have 30 players playing this week.

                    Can you use both chips in a gameweek I was no aware of this.

                    It is not possible to use both chips in the same week.

                    You can’t use both in the same week

                  12 days, 18 hours ago

                  My team now:

                  DDG
                  Taa Cancelo ALONSO
                  Salah* Jota SON Bowen
                  Antonio DENNIS Edouard

                  Steer* Gray AitNouri DALOT

                  So only 4/5 dgw players. Is it too much to take a few hits there -

                  Edouard+Salah+Dalot+Steer to Ronaldo+Maddy+Royal+Bachmann (-12) and then I can activate BB chip with 8 dgw players

                  DDG BACHMANN
                  Taa Cancelo ALONSO ROYAL AitNouri
                  MADDY Jota SON(C) Bowen Gray
                  Antonio DENNIS RONALDO

                  BB could pay off that big hit move?

                  1. Plonatron
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    12 days, 18 hours ago

                    Seems a waste to use bench boost to try and pay off a bunch of hits for players you may only want for that one gameweek

                7. DavidBadWillie
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  12 days, 18 hours ago

                  I have 5/6 DGWers and some good single players.

                  Still going to hit the free hit and I’m not sure they’re the right DGWers.

                8. Coaly
                  • 9 Years
                  12 days, 18 hours ago

                  Bachmann or Foster for the DGW?

                  1. DavidBadWillie
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    12 days, 18 hours ago

                    Neither

                      • 9 Years
                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      Who then

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    12 days, 18 hours ago

                    Not sure, does Foster come straight in?

                    1. Coaly
                      • 9 Years
                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      Could do

                  3. Cruicky
                    • 10 Years
                    12 days, 18 hours ago

                    Neither, not kept a clean sheet all season.

                    I'd stick with Sanchez for DGW.

                  De gea
                  TAA, Cancelo, Livramento,
                  Gray, Raphinha, Jota (c), Bowen
                  Edouard, Antonio, king

                  Ramsdale, Duffy, Salah, James

                  1ft 3.9 itb have both FH chips

                  As it is team specific. Is this team worth using a FH on?

                  A yes
                  B no

                  Anything worth a -4?

                  1. Junglist95
                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      No FH needed just bring in a couple more dgw players

                        Any suggestions? Who do you think is essential?

                    12 days, 18 hours ago

                    so theres no point planning a FH team for the DGW until after the weekends FA Cup games. cool, no need to stress this week!

                    Any Watford fans got any idea what their defence is gonna look like over the DGW? Catchcart worth a punt ?

                    1. Cruicky
                      • 10 Years
                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      no clean sheets all season. I wouldn't.

                      Will be signing a new LB and at least 2 CBs this month to rectify that.

                    • 5 Years

                    5 DGW players
                    + 1 FT (likely Maddison)

                    Jota, taa, cancelo, Bowen

                    Free hit isn’t really worth it if i have decent dgw already right? Would look to -4 and bb but think 2 of my bench may not start or play still though

                  5. DavidBadWillie
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    12 days, 18 hours ago

                    I think I’m getting Bruno for the free hit. Surely he has to come back to form and a great differential.

                    1. Dreaming of glory
                      • 5 Years

                      Worth a gamble

                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      How many DGWers will you get on the FH?

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        12 days, 18 hours ago

                        Will wait for more news but at least 8 I’d say.

                          12 days, 18 hours ago

                          Sounds a good number, problem with FH this week is I could see a few highly owned SGWers doing well so a danger your original team could outscore the FH team. Bruno for example is one I'd personally avoid - different player this season with Ronaldo there, to the point he's not even nailed anymore

                      There's a weird thing whereby if a poll is embedded in an article, it won't be simultaneously shown in the sidebar.

                    So now Guardiola and Dyche have returned COVID positive. Will be a surprise to see all games of the DGW go ahead as planned. Might be risky to play your chip only for the match to be cancelled!

                    Hi all,
                    In reference to my previous post, I’d just like to add that Az is correct in saying that the article in question does say that the percentages are very low regarding the anxiety and low mood FPL creates but it’s still a percentage that exists which brings me to say that one of the positives (and there is quite a few) about the FPL community is the camaraderie it brings to a lot of people on here and the fact that we can talk about these issues between ourselves. Some people live on their own and have nobody to speak to, I have a family and my wife just raises her eyebrows When the G/W is on and I’m muttering to myself, but we’re not all Sam and Lee on FPL family who can quite happily chat to each other about the G/W they’ve had 🙂 so it was good to see that perfect strangers can chat amongst themselves about how they feel and the majority on here can understand and sympathise with how they feel and they’re not alone.
                    Anyway, I’ve gone on for too long, but one other thing I’d like to know as I’m still a relatively FPL virgin ( 2 years) is that my previous comment has been highlighted Green, does anybody know why this means? Many thanks and take care everybody….

                      A mod considered the post important enough to be hot-linked. And indeed it did stimulate quality discussion.

                        Thanks Andy, that’s cleared that up 😀

                          Welcome Gaz! 🙂

                          Interesting post, I know from experience that FPL can affect my mood, I just also know from my background in Psych research that over-interpreting very small effect sizes can be dangerous.

                          Hopefully we see some more research on the subject!

                            Thanks Az,
                            My posts wasn’t necessarily solely about FPL, but the amount of interest it generated and the fact that people can come on here and unburden themselves can only be a good thing. It’s also good to get away from FPL once in a while on here so I asked a question a while ago regarding what people do for a living (career, retired etc) and where they live ( globally it seems)and some of the answers were fascinating!
                            Listened to your show last night on FFS with Sonaldo whilst walking my dog, good fun and informative 🙂 keep up the good work Az and thanks for replying…

                    Would you use a FH on the team below (I have 2 FH's)

                    De Gea

                    Cancelo | TAA | Cash

                    Son(c) | Bowen | Foden | Gray | Jota

                    Ronaldo | Antonio

                    BENCH: Gunnarsson / Broja / Dalot / Johnson

                    Really not sure what to do, either BB or FH?

                    Many thanks

                      Wouldn't use a chip.

                        Not even BB?

                        I am wary using the FH with what is on offer for the DGW.

                      You got Ronaldo so no need to FH in my opinion, with 2 free transfers. I would do Broja to Dennis, Foden to Mount and Cash to Reguilion (-4). Bench boost is better in DGW 36

                    A moment to lament Locadia, his ghost still sat on my bench whilst the player has left for sunnier climes.

                    Guys is it confirmed that no more teams double on 22?

                      .... these teams may not double.

                    This lot should be good enough for DGW22 right?

                    DdG
                    TAA, Cancelo, Alonso
                    Son, Jota, Bowen, Gray
                    Kane, Antonio, Dennis

                    Ramsdale; Dawson, Cash, Gilmour.

                      Yes … it’s a pretty naff DGW and could get naffer.

                        Agreed. Prefer TAA, Jota, Bowen and Antonio to anyone from Brentford, Brighton, Burnley, etc.

                          Exactly.

                      As below, pretty similar position - Kane is a big plus but I could bring him in on a FT for Watkins and bench Foden, thinking this team will do well enough - not really sold on going big on DGW players - they did us over with spurs v leic (who knows what that game will deliver)

                    Current team & fixtures

                    Sa (SOU)
                    Cancelo (CHE) TAA (BRE) Alonso (mci, bha)
                    Bowen (LEE) Jota (BRE) Gray (nor) Son (ARS, lei) Foden (CHE)
                    Antonio (LEE) Dennis (new, bur)

                    Foster (new, bur) , Watkin (MUN), Tierney (tot) , Dalot (avl, bre)

                    To FH or not?

                      I don't see the need for a FH there. Your SGW players could all score well.

                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      There is very little upside, to free hit that team.

                      No need to FH - your SGW players could easily outscore the DGWers

                    Very underwhelming.

                    For all those taking on the decision to FH this week, you know you'll all end up with Salah / James etc back next GW right?

                      • 4 Years
                      12 days, 18 hours ago

                      James is out for around 2 months.

                        So yeah, he will definitely be one to get out asap

                      You've taken a hit already? Madness making early transfers in these times

                    There’s still no point planning imo. Who knows what that fixture list will look like come the deadline.

                      That's the point of planning, I'd rather have a rough idea of what to do with my team in a few scenarios, than no idea up until the deadline.

                        How could you possibly make a plan? There’s 100’s of permutations of the fixture list for GW22

                    Best defender to bring in for the DGW? Looking to replace Coufal

                      Reguilion or any United defender I think

                      West Ham same some good fixtures coming up, Wouldn't be looking at switching out Coufal.
