fantasy premier league best fixtures GW10 – the fixture ease schedule

Just to clarify this was written before Mondays game of Arsenal v Leicester.

We’ve also added good fixture clumps at the end for you to be aware of before transfers in and out.

An introduction

My intention at the moment is to take the fixture difficulty ranking from the Official FPL site with some slight adjustments. That schedule doesn’t differentiate between attack and defence and is an overall ranking. You will see their fixture difficulty when you look at a player in detail on the FPL site.

The schedule below uses the official rankings to rank them from easiest at the top to hardest at the bottom. The order of the teams is for GW10-15. The figure in the right hand column is the ranking from from GW10-12



FE Rank Team FE Rank
GW10-15 GW10-12
1 Leicester 2
2 Huddersfield 4
3 Newcastle 6
4 Brighton 9
5 Chelsea 3
6 Liverpool 7
7 West Ham 5
8 Watford 1
9 Burnley 15
10 Bournemouth 8
11 Fulham 12
12 Everton 13
13 Man City 14
14 Cardiff 16
15 Wolves 19
16 Man Utd 18
17 Arsenal 10
18 Southampton 11
19 Spurs 17
20 C Palace 20

So here I give attacking and defensive player suggestions for players with good 6 week and 3 week fixtures. This week it’s Leicester, Huddersfield, Newcastle, Chelsea and Liverpool



Leicester

This was written before the Monday night game of Arsenal v Leicester

Just Vardy and Maddison for me in attack at the moment

£9.0m Fwd Vardy has scored 3 goals in 1 assists in 5 starts plus 1 as sub at a PP90 of 5.9.  His numbers are negatively distorted by a sending off as well.

£7.0m Mid Maddison has scored 3 goals in 2 assists in 8 starts at a PP90 of 5.9.  He’s averaged about 80 minutes per game.  He does have reasonable set piece representation as well.  His underlying stats could be better.

Defensively it’s tricky.  £5.5m Maguire is the premium attacking option but that’s some price for the Leicester defence.  Chilwell is the safe bet at £5.0m with some attacking potential.  Pereira at £5.1m is an RB who has played fairly regularly at RM but has been benched for 1 of the games.

West Ham (H)
Cardiff (A)
Burnley (H)
Brighton (A)
Watford (H)
Fulham (A)

Huddersfield

From an attacking perspective there’s no one for me.  Huddersfield have scored the least goals and have the lowest xG of any team in the league.

In defence I would either go for cheap option of £4.3m Schindler or a slightly better attacking option of Lowe at £4.4m

Watford (A)
Fulham (H)
West Ham (H)
Wolves (A)
Brighton (H)
Bournemouth (A)

Chelsea

In attack I would probably look at Hazard and Willian.  The striker situation needs some clarifying yet.

£11.4m Mid Hazard has got 7 goals and 3 assists in 7 starts plus 2 as sub at a PP90 of 10.1.  He is an early injury doubt for GW10 so that needs monitoring.  Played 90 minutes in 6 of his 7 starts.  He has the rare midfield bonus of penalty duties.

£7.4m Mid Willian has got 1 goal and 3 assists in 7 starts plus 2 as sub at a PP90 of 6.1.  Has some set piece responsibility but only averages 72 minutes when starting and has been benched twice.

In defence there’s the premium attacking option of Alonso at £7.om or the less attacking but seemingly secure option of £5.5m David Luiz

Burnley (A)
Crystal Palace (H)
Everton (H)
Spurs (A)
Fulham (H)
Wolves (A)

Newcastle

Just Kenedy and Matt Ritchie at a stretch for Newcastle

£5.9m Mid Ritchie has got just the 1 assist in 8 starts at a PP90 of 2.6. He has at least played 90 minutes in the last 2 games whereas before that he was regularly subbed in the 60’s and 70’s.  He does have some set piece representation but it’s a sign of the lack of options at Newcastle.

£4.9m Mid Kenedy has got just the 1 goal and no assists in 9 starts plus 1 as sub at a PP90 of 3.0.

£4.5m defender Yedlin is my defensive choice.

Southampton (A)
Watford (H)
Bournemouth (H)
Burnley (A)
West Ham (H)
Everton (A)

Liverpool

With Liverpool the front 3 are the obvious target (although Mane is currently injured).  However, I suspect you will have to live with rotation and early substitutions from time to time as we saw on the weekend

£12.8m Mid Salah has scored 4 goals in 2 assists in 8 starts at a PP90 of 5.9. Despite scoring the only goal of the game v Huddersfield he is still without a bonus point this season.  He does have excellent underlying stats and Cardiff next

£9.3m Fwd Firmino has scored 2 goals and 2 assists in 8 starts at a PP90 of 4.7 plus 1 as sub. Blanked in the last 3 starts and returns are pretty ordinary as are the underlying stats. It’s all about the fixtures.

Defensively the safe choice for Liverpool is probably £6.4m Robertson or £5.9m Van Dijk until the 2 places for 3 players of Lovren, Gomez and Alexander Arnold is tested over the next couple of games.

Cardiff (H)
Arsenal (A)
Fulham (H)
Watford (A)
Everton (H)
Burnley (A)

Some good short term future fixture clumps

Use these to plan transfers in and watchouts on transfers out

Watford

GW10  Huddersfield (H)
GW11  Newcastle (A)
GW12  Southampton (A)

Think about Pereya or Deeney (if fit) or Deulofeu.  Holebas in defence.

Fulham

GW10 Bournemouth (H)
GW11 Huddersfield (A)

Think about Mitrovic and Schurrle.  No one in defence

West Ham

GW11 Burnley (H)
GW12 Huddersfield (A)

Think about Arnautovic or Anderson.  Balbuena in defence

But also look at this run of games

GW14  Newcastle (A)
GW15  Cardiff (H)
GW16  Crystal Palace (H)
GW17  Fulham (A)
GW18  Watford (H)
GW19  Southampton (A)
GW20 Burnley (A)
GW21  Brighton (H)

Wolves

GW13 Huddersfield (H)
GW14 Cardiff (A)

Think about Jimenez.  Doherty in defence

Brighton

GW14  Huddersfield (A)
GW15  Crystal Palace (H)
GW16  Burnley (A)

Think about Murray.  Duffy in defence

Arsenal

GW16  Huddersfield (H)
GW17  Southampton (A)
GW18  Burnley (H)

  1. Need some Leicester for the next four I guess.
    Currently here:

    Patricio
    Doherty, Robertson, Mendy, Alonso
    Salah, Bernardo, Hazard, Frazer
    Aguero, Mitrovic
    Hamer, Ings, Westwood, AWB

    The return of KDB makes the Bernardo sale easy, Maddison in.
    Also leaves 0.5 itb for a potential GW11 Hamer upgrade as Patricio suffers a fixture swing.

    European injuries permitting!

    • Hi mate

      Aguero still falls under my definition of essential as you’ll see in the article so I myself won’t be selling

      That doesn’t mean it’s the wrong call just my view

      Good luck this week

  2. I feel the same way.. Sergio stays obviously.
    I watched the first half of Arsenal v Leicester, seemed that Vardy was pulling left and Nacho right creating a big hole for Maddison through the middle. Free kicks, both corners and accustomed to the despicable English winter.
    Potentially the top scoring mid over next 5 imo.

  3. I’d expect Maddison to return in a few of next 5-6 gameweeks but he won’t be the highest scoring mid in that time period. But if you are looking for Leicester cover then he is certainly the go to man at the price. I’ve had him since GW5 and he is staying put.

    • Of course you are correct. It’s not possible for Maddison to be the top scoring midfielder over the next five.
