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.

    Lol I'd finally put a plan together that Ive just ripped up

  5. Rainer

    A DGW for teams likely banking the follow week...

    Carnage!

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Would they all blank the next week?

      1. Rainer
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Three likely bar Southampton away to Arsenal in 28.

        1. WopFoop
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          That's 32 - Arsenal v Pałace in GW28, Soton v Spurs

          1. Rainer
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Apologies, meant all likely bar Palace away to Arsenal in 28.

        2. Hy liverpool
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Saints blank in gw28

  6. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Martinelli to Odegaard for a -4 too sideways?

    1. Rash
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'm debating it myself

    2. WopFoop
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I was thinking Martinelli to Saka but now I'm wondering when to get Mitoma in (probably GW26?)

  7. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Ivan you better stay put son.

  8. AD105
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Anything worth a hit here? 2.3 ITB

    Kepa
    Tripps Shaw White
    Bruno Rashy Saka Odegaard
    Kane Haaland Toney

    Ward Botman Pereira Bueno

    1. Heavy Cream
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      No, but I’d start Botman over Toney. But I am a bit mental.

    2. Heiro
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      If you had a free, would you do anything?

      same team as mine (I have martin vs your saka)

  9. Gandalf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Hmm Toney > Nketiah not looking so straightforward now

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      True.

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Nketiah has DGW in GW23 and 25, and Toney has a BGW in 25. Might as well get Nketiah points before Jesus returns. Could be good timing for Toney DGW in 27.

  10. Heavy Cream
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Kepa
    Trippier - Akanji - Schar - Saliba Rash - Martinelli - Mitoma - Saka
    Haaland - Kane

    Ward, Almiron, Shaw, Toney

    G2G or take a hit for Almiron to Mahrez and drop Schar from the starting 11?

  11. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Aubamayang going to MLS is a waste, could still do well in Europe at a team that plays to his strengths.

    Sad to see

  12. urosz
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Which city defender is nailed for both upcoming matches?

    1. Heavy Cream
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Akanji

    2. Rainer
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Error 404.

  13. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy

    Even Crellin can't save us this season

  14. Jumpers_for_goal_posts

    Any help here much appreciated:

    2FT, 4.2ITB

    Kepa
    Trip, Botman, White
    Bruno, Almiron, Rash, Martinelli,
    Mitro, Kane, Halland.

    Ward, Shaw, Andreas, Bueno

    Thinking Bruno>Saka and Almiron for Mahrez (can't quite get back to KDB)

    1. Heiro
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Can you do Andreas & Almiron to Ode & Mahrez? So you can play Bruno?

      1. Jumpers_for_goal_posts
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 4 months ago

        0.4 short sadly 🙁

        1. Heiro
          • 14 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Mitro to Nketiah, Almiron to Mahrez?

          1. Jumpers_for_goal_posts
            • 1 Year

            I'll give it a think - thanks for help!

  15. Bobby Digital

    Patterson back would save me a transfer. Dyche would need to start him too though...

    Kepa (Ward)
    Trippier - Estupinan - Walker (Shaw - Bueno)
    KdB - Odegaard - Martinelli - Bruno - Rashford
    Haaland - Darwin (Greenwood)

    2 FT. 0.2 ITB. Any suggestions?

    1. Heiro
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Must have a terrible Team value. Walker to Ake, Martin to Ode.

      Darwin to Nketiah? and Walker to Ake?

  19. urosz
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Play one:
    A) Kulu
    B) Andreas
    C)Toney

    1.8 itb but no free transfer anymore

    1. urosz
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Oopsm actually play 2.

      So bench one of them

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A & C

      1. Apwilkin
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Agree. But you just know Andreas will always return whenever he is on your bench…

    3. noissimbus
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A

  20. Rider on the Storm
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Chances for Rico Lewis to play twice this GW?

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      High, how many mins who knows

  21. PogChamp
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    This season is far too complicated

    1. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Ain’t it just, basically a full time job deciphering what to plan for and do ha!

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I enjoy it

        1. RICICLE
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 4 months ago

          I kind of do, but it all becomes too much of a headache after about half an hour haha!
          Used my 2nd wildcard already but to wood effect, just hope it doesn’t damage me horrendously trying to slalom through all these blanks

    2. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      But us nerds should embrace this

  22. g40steve
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Play Shaw or Toney?

    Anything worth a hit?

    Cap, Saka, Mahrez or Haaland?

    Ederson
    Trippier, Shaw, White, Botman
    Mahrez, Rashford, Ode, Saka
    Hauland, Kane,

    Ward, Toney, Andreas, Bueno

    4m

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Toney for me “play the attacker” comes to mind and would play it safe and cap haaland

      1. g40steve
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers

  23. Chalobah's Witness
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    mitro to nketiah for free?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Sure

  24. marcus2704
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    To those who like me decided against the Rashford TC last week (which I am kind of regretting right now) are you putting the TC armband on Haaland this week?

    1. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Do you see a better option in coming months?

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

      Ideally would defer but just not sure if a better chance will arise. Still on the fence

  25. boyofwonder
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Kepa
    White - Trippier - Shaw
    Martinelli - Mahrez - Rashford - Bruno
    Nketiah - Kane - Haaland

    Thomas - Pereira - Bueno

    ITB : 2.6
    FT : 1

    A : Roll FT
    B : Martinelli to Saka/Ødegaard
    C : Bruno to Kdb
    D : White to Ake, Martinelli to Ødegaard(-4)

  26. v3n0m
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Have Ode,
    A) White + Martial -> Tark + Nketiah
    B) Shaw + Martinelli -> Tark + Saka

    1. Apwilkin
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      B for me.

  27. Apwilkin
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Who scores more over the next 3 game weeks?
    1 - White
    2 - Gabriel
    3 - Odegaard (-4)

    I’ve got 1FT. White to Gabriel feels a bit sideways to me but the minutes are certainly a concern. To get odegaard I would probably go white to Tarkowski and andreas to odegaard.

  28. Tshelby
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    So hard to choose..

    A, B or C? I like C

    A) Bruno and Mitro to Mahreze and Kane
    B) Martinelli to Saka
    C) Greenwoord, Martinelli to Mitoma and Nketiah

    1. Apwilkin
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Are A and C for hits? And I am guessing you have Odegaard already?

      My one concern about C is your are bringing in a Mitoma for just 2 weeks before he blanks. Do you have plan for GW25?

      B most likely for me.

  29. RAFA THE GAFFA

    Good enough to go? GL all 🙂

    Kepa
    Tripps, Akanji, White

Haaland(TC), Mitro, Nketiah

      Great bench!

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Yes, crap team? 🙂

        1. Meechoo115
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Fab team too. Hence couldn’t suggest bench players to play

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Cheers matey! Right to play TC on Haaland? Thanks for the time & GL

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 11 Years

      Great team

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers mate! It’ll probably flop given my season so far haha

  30. Meechoo115
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Is this bench worth a BB?

    Ward (TOT)
    Toney (Ars)
    Varane (lee)
    Estupinan (cry)

    Probably not right ?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Not bad but I'd save it

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

      When you think it's worth it, it won't be. That's BB for you.
