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.

      Keep Bruno

      Same with me and almost certainly going to keep Bruno as we know nailed for 90 minutes and on penalties. Mahrez minutes could be limited and don’t see haul in either of City games

    Should I make haalandTC ?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      What do you expect him to get from the two games?

    2. Sun God Nika
      • 3 Years

      I’m struggling to decide

    3. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Its a tough call.
      Pros:
      - Not injured now
      - No CL next week
      - Villa shipped 4 vs Leicester

      Cons:
      - Fixtures might be better for him in future DGW

    4. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I dunno, but I am.

    5. l@sp0
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I would

  3. Amartey Partey
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Why are so few talking about FH25 when it’s a blank and double GW all in one?

    1. how now brown cow
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Most people have 3 arsenal anyway, and other doubles aren't great.

      Will likely be a better use in my opinion.

      1. l@sp0
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        This

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Because most of us trying to manage it without using FH, I guess

    3. Art Vandelay
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      It is highly likely you will look back in the midst of the serious BGWs/DGWs and say "I wish I hadn't used my FH in GW25".

      As always though, it is team dependent...

    4. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      3 Arsenal, Salah, 1 Everton def and maybe 1 Wolves def is all you need.

      1. I like to party
        • 8 Years

        Salah. Why?

    5. Studs Up
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Bigger fish to fry in 28 or 29

      • 12 Years

      Arsenal aside and having 3 x City who else would you want?

    7. lugs
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      i'm doing it, have a lot of players out in 25 with only my Arsenal players doubling, FH 25 allows me to focus transfers for dgw 27 & bgw 28, only interested in Brentford & Brighton for 27 though

    8. Camzy
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I'm leaning towards doing it. My team is specifically well set up for it.

  4. FC Hakkebøf
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Who should I sell first (the latter will be sold next week)?

    A) Havertz (whu)
    B) Weghorst (lee)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A - Darrow Fofana could start up front

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 year, 5 months ago

      Havertz. Chelsea need time. Too many new players.

    3. Botman and Robben

      A

      U made my day 🙂

      1. dansmusen
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I also have him and let me say last GW was a mare....could have been 20 points

        1. Eleven Hag
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Against Fulham?

          1. dansmusen
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Yes should have scored 3

  5. Karan14
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Start Gnonto (MUN) or Andreas (NFO)?

    1. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Andreas

    2. Eleven Hag
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Gnoto, we will leak 2+ goals away at Leeds

    3. dansmusen
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Same dilemma for me and I will bench Gnonto but it hurts

    4. l@sp0
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Gnonto for me

  6. Supersonic_
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Foden to Mahrez -4?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      How many minutes do you expect him to play?

      1. Supersonic_
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I think Foden might actually get some minutes, hence the dilemma.

      2. TheSteel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Id say 120

        1. Supersonic_
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Who Mahrez

          1. TheSteel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Yeah

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Yes

  7. Khalico
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Team GTG?
    Kepa
    Lewis, Trippier, Zinchenko
    Saka, Mitoma, Almiron, Rashford, KDB
    Haaland, Kane
    Subs: Sanchez, Toney, Shaw, Estupinan

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I'd play Toney over Alimiron

      1. Khalico
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I'm split between the two. Chose Almiron away vs Bournemouth over Toney away vs Arsenal but will think over it.

  8. Arvin-ation
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Kepa (Ward)
    Shaw Trippier White Akanji (Cucurella)
    Rashford Martinelli Fernandes KDB (A. Perreira)
    Haaland Nketiah (Ferguson)

    1 FT
    2.6 ITB

    Simple Martinelli ---> Odegaard? or do I splash the cash on Saka for an extra 1.3m?

    Cheers

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Na Foden back in training reduces his xMins

    2. Stranger Mings

      No

  11. the Chaser
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Anyone got a feel on CB pairing for wolves?

    Want to lock in kilman for next few including 25, but wary of Collins who was playing before Dawson arrived and they paid good money for.

    Any opinions?

    Saving TC for Mitoma (lee, CPA)

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        He’ll be the most popular captaincy pick that week amongst engaged players

        1. l@sp0
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          True. I will probably captain Mitoma as well. But not convinced this is a better option than Haaland captain in DGW.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Writing it down it does have a wif of DGW captaincy fails in the past like Dennis and Weghorst.

            Just not sure on Haaland this GW.

  13. TheSteel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Anyone still have Salah? These must be all time low conditions for Liverpool and they're bound to respond?

    1. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      No but will probably get DGW25

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      No, we’ll continue to get worse.

    How's the DGW27 news affected folks Arsenal plans?

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years

      Huh

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        It may bring WC forward to GW27 reducing the number of GWs for the Arsenal sideways move to pay off

    2. Sun God Nika
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Huhhuh

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      In now way at all. Everyone has 3 anyway.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years

        Read my response above. Should've been more clear it's about the sideways move

    DeBruyne + Almiron -> Mahrez + Saka
    Is it worth a hit?
    Owning Odegaard and White from ARS and Haaland+Ake from MCI

    1. azza76
      • 1 Year

      No. If you can get Almiron to Saka, do that but I'm guessing you can't afford.

  18. Yozzer
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Can't decide between

    A Bruno, Martinelli --> Mahrez Saka
    B White , Bruno --> Akanji Saka

    B would allow me to bring in Ode for Martinelli at some point.

    To triple Haaland or not? I’m obviously annoyed I didn’t do Rashford…

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      What do you think he’ll score this DGW?

      1. Ian Davis
        • 14 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        No idea, City very hit and Miss at the moment. Could win 5-1 vs Villa or sneak a 2-1. Arsenal game will be tight you’d expect.

  21. Bartowski
    • 13 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Should I bench:
    A. Ward Prowse (Wolves H)
    B. Almiron (Bournemouth A)
    C. Salah (Eve H)

    And, how Salah has fallen to be legitimately inserted into such a line up...

    1. azza76
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A. You can't bench a 12.7m player

      1. Bartowski
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        On the contrary, I should have done it a fair few times before now.

  22. Baked baines
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Is it still a viable option to bring in Nketiah given Jesus is close to returning to full training. With Arsenal having 2 DGW’s in next 3. There is a possibility that Eddie may feel like a wasted transfer?

    1. Camzy
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Yes it's still a good idea to pick up Nketiah.

    2. Bartowski
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Wouldn't count on Jesus coming back anytime soon...

    Would you do

    1. Martinelli + Fernandes to Saka + Mitoma for -4. Will bench Mitoma
    2. Martinelli + Fernandes + White to Odegaard + Saka + Tarkowski for -8
    3. Play Martinelli, White, bench Bruno

    Current team. 0.4 itb, 1 FT

    Kepa ()
    White Trippier Botman (Shaw) (Bueno)
    KDB Mahrez Rashord Martinelli (Bruno)

  25. Zimo
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    What are people thinking of doing in 27? The single gameweek players all have really good fixtures as well. I'm thinking of using FTs still. Maybe go for Raya, Mitoma. And then one of March or Toney which will depend on who blanks in 28 between Liverpool and Leeds as I'll have Salah and Gnonto to move to one of them. Then I wanna play Tripps Botman Gabriel Saka Odegaard Rashford Haaland Kane as single gameweek players.

    1. Zimo
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Immediately switch out the Toney/March transfer for someone who plays in 28 to get to 10 players and then FH in 29 and carry on with my normal plan to WC33 BB34

    2. lugs
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      already have Mitoma, might just get Raya as second keeper to pair with Pope, then get Toney and Estupinan and leave it at that

      1. Zimo
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Yeah seems a good plan to me

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I think I'd still rather BB in 29. Can maybe bench Maddison (CHE) in 27.

      I'm not too sure about Toney tbh, unlikely I'll go there myself given I have Nketiah. For Brighton, besides Mitoma, I definitely want Estupinan who can be used in rotation. Ferguson could also be one to watch, if he can nail down a place in the next few weeks. Still think March is a decent option but I don't think I'd want to carry a 2nd BHA mid through blanks & some of the tougher SGW fixtures

      1. Zimo
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I'll remove the Toney/March transfer immediately for someone who plays in 28/32.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 3 Years

          Ok. Mine is more of a longer-term plan, don't think I'll take one week punts

    Ebening lads. Any suggested changes to this wildcard team? 0.6itb. Ward > Sanchez? Won't have cash for KdB to Salah gw25 then, and can't see a downgrade to get funds for the move either...

    Kepa Ward
    Trip Gabriel Kilman Tete Tark
    KdB Saka Ode Rash Mitoma
    Haaland Kane Gnonto

      Ward is fine as 2nd gk imo. Money in bank more beneficial

      KDB > Mahrez, had KDB from the WC & very disappointed

    You know what...

    The WC27, FH28, BB29 is starting to make a little more sense.

    If you WC27 you can double Brentford and Brighton for the DGW (Mee, Toney, Mitoma, Estupinan). FH 28 for the big blank and then prepare a huge BB in 29 since Brentford and Brighton will compose your BB enablers who you maximize in 27 and 29.

    These new doubles make it have higher potential.

    I still am wary of blowing all my chips by GW29 considering there are still loads of games to rearrange but if it goes according to plan, I do think this chip strategy gets the most number of fixtures out compared to some other lines but it is a few unlucky international break injuries from the whole plan falling flat.

      Then you're stuck for the 32 blank and 34 double though since everyone who blanks in 32 doubles in 34. No?

      1. Camzy
        • 14 Years

        Yes but not as many teams will blank in 32 since it's the semi finals not the quarters so there are just fewer teams left and affected.

          4 of the best fixtures though could be affected.

          New vs Spurs
          Bri vs City
          United vs Chelsea
          will most likely be affected. That's a lot of players from everyone's teams.

            Depends on the draws I suppose. Could be they end up drawing each other early and remove one another but then Southampton could reach semis as well removing Arsenal from the picture which would be a whole lot worse.

        I think I'm using FTs to get 3 doublers in 27. Then 10 players in 28. FH29. Probably 10 players in 32. WC33. BB34. FTs for remaining 37 double. Also have 5 doublers for 23 and 6 for 25. Will have to take one hit in 25 though now to set up for 28,32 as well with an Everton defender.

        1. Camzy
          • 14 Years

          It's a solid plan.

          I generally prefer FH'ing blanks than doubles because it's guaranteed value.

          You know that if you're down to 7 players that your FH is going to gain you points. Whereas if you play FH in a DGW, SGW players like Arsenal vs LEE in 29 can outscore the doublers you buy.

          1. Zimo
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Possible. I prefer maximising on doublers. Will stick with just Saka maybe from Arsenal if other doublers don't seem worth more.

      Depends how many more fixtures get added but as things stand I just don't see much merit in FH28. Even with 2x BRE & BHA, you can easily accommodate a solid core for 28 of 3x ARS, 2x NEW, plus one or two others from CHE/WOL etc.

      But I agree 27 & 9 are dovetailing nicely, and I'm increasingly confident that 29 will be my BB
