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 is the best sub 6.5 midfielder to downgrade Martinelli to? I have 2FTs and changing my third arsenal player to Nket. Any Everton or Wolves players worth a punt due to DGW 25?

      Nope, Mitoma.

    Hello folks, quick question. I've been a long term paid up member but dont use the actual data area, just signed up for articles and such and to support the site. Also havn't been active for a while. But since recently coming back online notice the sort by difficulty of fixtures in the ticker has gone. Have I missed something here can anyone tell me please?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Have to use the fixture ticker in the members area for that now

        Oh ok, cheers for that. Why cant things stay the same why, do things have to change!

          I think they could improve this by allowing players who have signed in to see the fixture ticker without heading to the members area.

      It's all about ££££ nowadays. You have to pay for everything.

      FFS now rides under its American-Indian name: Pale Shadow of Former Self.

      Which is a shame.

  3. waltzingmatildas
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A) Andreas to Odegaard
    B) Andreas, Shaw to Saka, Tarkowski (-4)
    C) Bruno to Saka/Odegaard

    A and B would mean benching Mitro/Mitoma

  4. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    With Brighton Brentford having decent doubles now in 27 but blank in 28 means going to be difficult to load up with them without playing a chip

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      * highly likely to blank in 28 but we won’t know until after 26

    2. Rainer
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah it's really pushing towards FH28, especially if Liverpool play that GW.

      If not, 28 looks an absolute write-off with tough to predict games!

      1. ameisin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        If you can get 3 from ARS, CHE and NEW you should be ok for 28 I think, but yeh, can't load up on doublers in 27 in order for this to happen.

    3. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON

      I have had Toney in the last two games - vs Leeds and Southampton. 1 point each.

      1. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeah but if you look at his history there is a big haul usually after 2-3 blanks...

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          The 2 games v Leeds: 17pts, 1pt. Classic Toney

    4. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Both are still likely to double again in 29, so screw 28. I'm not going too full-on but its good news for Raya & Mitoma, who I already have, and I'll almost certainly get Estupinan

  5. urosz
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Bench one
    A) Kulu
    B) Andreas
    C) Toney
    D) Rashford

    1. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’m playing B over C. But on reflection not sure… forest are very tight now

    2. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

    3. waltzingmatildas
      • 13 Years

      B

  6. TheSteel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Haaland(TC) or save it for potentially better Haaland DGW?

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm waiting

    2. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I probably would use it. Expect a city reaction

    3. Robe Wan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Am using

  7. Thomas Jerome Newton
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Who starts two?
    A) Walker
    B) Lewis
    C) neither

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Maybe Walker but maybe neither

      1. Meechoo115
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Definitely one I would say. Gomez nowhere to be seen

  8. sirmorbach
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Last decision to make: Martinelli to Ode or save?

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Do it. Will pay off long term.

    2. Zio
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ode more likely to haul while Martinelli has been more consistent (until his recent dry spell). On current form Ode is a better looking prospect but Martinelli is not a bad shout either so it depends how much benefit having the extra transfers makes to your team.

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Go for it

  9. tryf88
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Martinelli to Saka or Ode
    OR
    Bruno to Mahrez or Kdb?

    1. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Bruno to Mahrez seems safe given Foden has vanished

      1. tryf88
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thanks - following in Cancelo's steps? Pep is mad

  10. Zenith UK
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Had some good feedback on the previous thread, looking for one or two more opinions please;

    Do I bench boost this week? GW22 was my 4th best score of the season, bringing me up to 1.8M and if I finish outside the top 100K it would be the first time in 3-4 years so would be gutted.

    Kepa
    Trippier, Shaw, Badiashile
    Mahrez, Ode, Rash, Bruno
    Haaland (c), Nketiah, Kane

    Ward, Mitoma, Burn, White

    Ward - Meh, it's Ward.
    Mitoma - Palace have two clean sheets in their last nine fixtures (benched him last week for Mahrez/Nketiah and feeling hurt).
    Burn - Bournemouth have scored once in their last seven fixtures.
    White - Double game week.

    1FT. 0.7ITB.

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think there will be better opportunities but with this you can focus your WC down the line on purely the best squad rather than best squad for BB.

      1. Zenith UK
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        This is my WC. I was fighting a god awful rank (still am)

  11. Weak Become Heros
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Bench one please!

    A. Mitoma (cpl)
    B. Rashford (lee)
    C. Kane (lei)

    1. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Wow. Surely you have another option. Would do A if pushed

    2. Bartowski
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Please?

        1. Bartowski
          • 13 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Who are the other two players, in your current team, with a SGW?

          1. Weak Become Heros
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Trip Schar Akanji.

          2. Weak Become Heros
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Sorry misread.

            Here is full squad for ease:

            Kepa
            Trips Schar Akanji
            Ode Saka KDB Rash
            Nketiah Haaland Kane

            Ward Mitoma Shaw Bueno

            1. Bartowski
              • 13 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Damn, I was hoping you had White in a back four or something. I guess Mitoma it is.

    3. Ser Davos
      • 8 Years

      Request special dispensation for an All Out Attack Chip

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Horrible isn’t it. Next week isn't any better.

    4. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      From those I’d have to say A

    5. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

    6. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Rashford away form isn't anywhere close to his home form. Would be mad to bench him though

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Very true mate, but I guess its Leeds. Plus i hope ETH learnt his lesson with Rashford on the right midweek.

    7. marcos11
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A

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

      Had a similar headache but I've benched Bruno.

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Blimey.

    9. Amartey Partey
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A. Good chance that Palace v Brighton is a low scoring game while the other ones have the greater potential to be very high scoring

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thank you.

  12. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Mitoma TC it’s is then!!!

    1. Ser Davos
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      honestly crossed my mind

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Certainly has the form and fixtures mate!!

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Maybe but doubt he’s going to keep his form up.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Would definitely be form dependent at that time whether to captain, TC or not

  13. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    If you listen very carefully you can just hear a white noise type sound now...relax it's just Crellin in his lab.....

  14. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 3 months ago

    After dgw27 info I am more confused about Toney to Nketiah. Could bench 25 and keep until 27 but then again it is long way to 27. What do you think about Toney to Nketiah after the news.

    For 25 I am planning to bench Trippier and Rash but getting likely rid of Bruno and Shaw. Don't have Mitoma.

    1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A long way to go for 27. Injury, ban, illness, falling out, anything can happen.

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        And in the meantime Nketiah plays 3 more games...

        1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Exactly

        2. BobbyDoesNotLook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Thanks guys. I was overthinking already before these news 😀

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      That was my first impression but tbf it's a long time by then he might be banned and also i don't have a place in my midfield for odeegard by gw27 as i would have mitoma... Will go for nketiah and if jesus back by gw 26/27 will switch to toney if not banned/suspended.

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yep makes sense. I will do the same. Nketiah looks lively so looking forward rooting for him this dgw.

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Go through with anyway for the reasons above

    4. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      also have Toney - one thing to consider is he is on 8YC - so a risk of missing both/1 of the games in DGW too

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Good point.

  15. Weak Become Heros
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Will keep Mitoma until his double then shift.

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      27 or 29? Could have two doubles in 3 weeks. Blank in between but it's still more fixtures than most will have in the same period

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Which double? Going to be 4-5

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        You reckon he may have 5 doubles to come?

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          If BHA or Man Utd win their next FA Cup tie, it'll be 4. If BHA go a round further that'll be 5

  16. Rash
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Thoughts on white bruno Gnonto to tarko saka Eddie

    Kepa
    Trippier white botman
    KDB bruno rash martinelli
    Kane Haaland Gnonto

    Ward Andreas shaw Patterson

    1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Why White out?

      1. Rash
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Maxed out on arsenal

  17. Rider on the Storm
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Akanji or Ake?

    1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      There are things known, and things unknown and in between are the doors.

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        People might be banging their head against a few doors investing in the city defence....

        1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Won't even come near then. Ake played 45 a couple of games back. City fans have been demanding Dias plays instead of Akanji. Defensively poor overall.

          1. Biggsy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            If Dias was back I'd be more confident about them. CS markedly dropped off since then

          2. space mercenary
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Not sure about Akanji being the problem. His defensive stats are good.

  18. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Toney is essential then. Triple c option

    1. how now brown cow
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Only for them to dish out the betting ban after the deadline for the lols.

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Reason I didn’t get him was because of the looming ban

        1. how now brown cow
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Me too. Months ago. 🙁

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Everton away with dyche in charge is difficult fixture.. Would prefer mitoma or saka gw25 if i didn't TC rashford las gw.

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Need to monitor his form going into the dgw

        If he scores a gw before or so then I’d be tempted. He’s a form player, can score v anyone I think as long as he’s on a run of form.

  19. v3n0m
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Who will score more in the next 5:
    A) White + Saka
    B) Martinelli + Nketiah

  20. The Parrot
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Right do I do Bruno + Martinelli to Mahrez and Ode for a hit?

    Can't get Ode without taking a hit

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

      Yeah same. On one hand its a sure thing Haaland is fit and no CL in the next week, but on the other hand the fixtures could be better.

      I've done it this week. It is a massive buzz. I would recommend it to anyone.

    What's with Bueno? Is he out of favour or just a rotation risk?

      Tactical benching. Wait and see if it's a trend

      People have said Ait-Nouri was selected to match up better vs Salah. Bueno might get back in but not assured of starts.

      He's cheap and can be benched until his DGW25, early KO means potentially a leak too...

        Cheers.

        Of course, the tactical benching was because of Salah. And one of his doubles is Vs Salah. That said, if he starts Vs Fulham it's possibly better than a blank or hit to sort him out

          Agreed.

    Martinelli to Saka for a hit?

      The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind

      noooooooo mannnnn

      If you're really keen on move then yes!

      With blanks and doubles coming, you're unlikely to ever have a spare FT to do it for free and the longer you leave it, the less potential upside.

    So according to ben crellin, BHA are likely to have additional DGW's in

    GW 29
    GW 34
    GW 37

    and another one in -

    GW 30/31/35/36

    That's mental!!!

        Bloody hell

    2. how now brown cow

      But blanks and tricky fixtures too.

    Thinking of wildcarding hows this looking as a wildcard team.

    Foster
    Trippier b white tarkowsi
    Saka odegaard maddison kulusevski
    Haaland kane j.felix

    Save TC Haaland for later, right?

  29. how now brown cow

    Kepa
    Trippier Botman White
    Bruno Rashford Martinelli Odegaard
    Mitrovic Haaland Kane

    (Ward Andreas Shaw Bueno)

    1 ft 3.5M itb

    What's my best move here? Had planned Bruno->KDB/Mahrez. Can afford Andreas->Mahrez, but that gives me a bench headache and issues for GW25.

    Not sure whether Martinelli->Saka is worth a hit too.

    1. g40steve

      Bruno > Mahrez was my move, planning for 25.
