Fixtures

FPL Double Gameweek 27 confirmed for Brighton, Brentford, Palace + Soton

Four teams will play twice in Double Gameweek 27 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) after the rearrangement of two previously postponed fixtures.

Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Crystal Palace and Southampton are the clubs involved, with their new Gameweek 27 schedules as follows:

  • Brentford: Everton (a) + Southampton (a)
  • Brighton: Leeds United (a) + Crystal Palace (h)
  • Crystal Palace: Manchester City (h) + Brighton and Hove Albion (a)
  • Southampton: Manchester United (a) + Brentford (h)

INITIAL REACTION

Brentford’s double-header immediately catches the eye, with both opponents currently inside the Premier League’s bottom three.

Brighton, meanwhile, face a trip to Elland Road before hosting rivals Crystal Palace, who they happen to meet on Saturday in the reverse fixture.

However, it’s worth noting both sides will blank in Gameweek 25, due to Newcastle United and Manchester United’s involvement in the EFL Cup final.

That will temper any immediate enthusiasm, although as soon as that blank passes, expect interest in the likes of Ivan Toney (£7.7m) – providing he is still available – and Kaoru Mitoma (£5.2m) to pick up.

At that stage, the status of Blank Gameweek 28 will be clearer, too. As it stands, Brentford, Brighton and Southampton’s fixtures are all at risk of being postponed. 

BRIGHTON BOTHER

Mitoma’s stock will only rise but Brighton could potentially face the following schedule, making it extremely difficult for FPL managers to navigate.

  • Gameweek 23: Crystal Palace (a)
  • Gameweek 24: Fulham (h)
  • Gameweek 25:
  • Gameweek 26: West Ham United (h)
  • Gameweek 27: Leeds United (a) + Crystal Palace (h)
  • Gameweek 28: potential Blank
  • Gameweek 29: potential Double
  • Gameweek 30: Tottenham Hotspur (a)
  • Gameweek 31: Chelsea (a)
  • Gameweek 32: potential Blank

As for Crystal Palace and Southampton, it’s unlikely their assets will be afforded too much attention given their schedules, unless they can quickly find some form.

Who played the most minutes over the March international break?

    Who do you think is likely to score more in GW23 and GW24: 1) Shaw or 2) Schaar.
    My thoughts:
    1) Shaw: Gw23 - likely no cs but maybe assist. GW 24 - at home to LEI
    2) Schaar: Gw23 - likely to cs. Gw24 - at home to LIV

      Schar this week. And actually, Leicester attack looks more scary than Liverpool right now, so I'm probably going to start Schar over Shaw in 24 also

        Wish I had Schar instead of Botman. I was gonna get him but the Brentford double has made me switch up my plans and keep Botman for now and play 10 in 25.

  4. SEXY SOLO SAUCE

    Play TC (Haaland/KdB) or save?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Nothing involving KDB and captaincy please.

      Not sure on Haaland TC - I’m 50/50 on it right now

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Agree with MS. I barely want to own KDB never mind TC him, he’s been dreadful. Haaland TC 50:50 not sure when else I will

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years

      I'm saving mine. KDB too punty right now, wouldn't recommend that at all

  5. DV8R

    I'm currently rocking this team

    Kepa
    White, Shaw, Botman, Trippier (Bueno)
    KDB, Bruno, Martinelli, Rashford (Andreas)
    Kane, Haaland (Greenwood)

    0.8m itb, 1 FT

    My plan is to do Bruno to Saka. Good move or should I avoid triple Arsenal?

    1. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Go for it. Triple arsenal almost essential

    2. Muller Reus Corner
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Can you afford Bruno and Greenwood to Mahrez and Nketiah for a -4?

  6. TheBiffas
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Bottomed. Play one of each

    a) Botman
    b) Shaw

    1) Gnonto
    2) March

    1. JoeJitzu +42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Botman and March imho

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A1

  7. buzdo

    Any concerns on White & Martinelli not getting enough minutes in both matches (considering both their forms dropping hard, especially White's)?

    1. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      White's been stellar. He will start both, just needs to make 60

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I own white and expect a benching

    3. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Everyone says get Gabby but only 2 points more than White?

      1. buzdo
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Probably cause of expected minutes and long term certainty I would guess? White's been horrific lately, Tomiyasu incoming imho. Haven't got a clue regarding Martinelli tho, I don't see Trossard being an upgrade personally.

    4. I like to party
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Well the masses on here seem to know more than Arteta. If you believe them, Marty and White will be playing in the reserves in a few weeks.

  8. JoeJitzu +42

    A. Shaw & DeBruyne
    B. Aké & Fernandes

    Cheers!

    Somehow bottomed again 🙂

    Haaland TC, yay or nay?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      50/50

      Might decide tomorrow morning how I feel on it then

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        When else will you use the TC if not?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Mitoma (lee, CPA)
          Salah (cpa, WOL)
          Saka (lei, EVE)

          Kane (DGW) if cup reschedules things for Spurs

          Might have to be Haaland this GW then

        2. Freshy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Mitoma DGW? for flair

      For so long I barely notice it anymore

  11. A guy
    • 9 Years

    Anyone going with Grealish or Alvarez as alternatives?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Doubt it! Awful picks and headaches going forward

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      No, City with Alvarez & Hauland up top performed rubbish last time out.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Nope. Although I did consider having triple attack with Alvarez during my tinkering. Ended up not liking it that much though.

    4. Transfer Window
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      I’m playing Haaland KDB and Alvarez. It’s crazy I know.

  13. Scrumper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Who scores more
    A) triple arsenal attack, or
    B) double arse attack & arse def?

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Ha, jinx. I’m going for the triple attack

      1. Scrumper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I have double attack and white at the mo, considering ether to do
        1) Martinelli & Martial -> Nkeita and Mahrez
        Or
        2) White & Martial -> Nkeita and City Def or James

        Feel like 2) is marginally more differentiating

    2. Buck The Trent
      • 12 Years

    1 FT, 0.6 ITB

    A) White to Gabriel
    B) Patterson to Lewis
    C) Patterson to Tarkowski
    D) Save FT

    Already have Saka + Nketiah + White from Arsenal and Haaland + Mahrez from City.

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years

    2. buzdo
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Are you expecting any CSs from Arsenal this dgw? If so I'd White to Gabriel then, plus he's better long term imho. I think White's soon gonna drop for Tomiyasu.

  17. ididnt
