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 GW26-230. The figure in the right hand column is the ranking from from GW26-28

A word about GW27, and the upcoming blanks and doubles

This is just a few words.  You can read in more detail in my last blanks and double gameweeks article

GW27 is the weekend of the EFL Cup final between Chelsea and Man City. Chelsea and Man City plus their opponents Brighton and Everton respectively don’t have fixtures in that week.  The schedule reflects that.

There will be various blanks and double gameweeks from GW31 after.  As these are not known at this stage I have only gone to GW30 in the schedule

Player suggestions

Here I give attacking and defensive player suggestions for players with good 5 week and 3 week fixtures. This week we’re looking at Wolves, Newcastle, Cardiff and Man Utd.

Wolves

Two attacking players for me here in Jimenez and Jota

£6.7m Fwd Jimenez has scored 9 goals and 7 assists in 24 starts plus 1 as sub at a PP90 of 5.4.  He has been a consistent returner.

£6.0m Mid Jota has scored 5 goals and 5 assists in 16 starts plus 4 as sub at a PP90 of 5.3.  He is currently playing as Jimenez’s strike partner in a 3-5-2 formation

Of the defenders there are 3 options.  The premium attacking option of Doherty at £5.3m, the cheaper and less productive attacking version of Jonny at £4.3m and the very cheap option of Bennett at £4.1m.

Newcastle (H)
Bournemouth (A)
Huddersfield (A)
Cardiff (H)
Chelsea (A)

Newcastle

Only Rondon for me here attacking wise

£5.7m Fwd Rondon has scored 6 goals and 3 assists in 17 starts plus 2 as sub at a PP90 of 4.9.

Of the defenders I think £4.5m Yedlin is the best option

Wolves (A)
Huddersfield (H)
Burnley (H)
West Ham (A)
Everton (H)

Cardiff

Now that Paterson has gone from FC to RM then there is no attacking player.  Niasse is a player I like but at the moment he’s played 3 games with only the recent Bournmouth game producing any attacking output.  I personally would want to see more before taking the plunge.

Defensively in the absence of Morrison I would go for the £4.6m Bamba or the GK Etheridge at £4.7m although there defensive record is pretty poor to say the least.  Only Fulham have conceded more goals and only Burnley and Fulham have a cumulative worst xG conceded.

Southampton (A)
Watford (H)
Everton (H)
Wolves (A)
West Ham (H)

Man Utd

2 attacking players here for me. Rashford and Pogba

£7.7m Fwd Rashford has scored 9 goals and 7 assists in 17 starts plus 4 as sub at a PP90 of 6.1.

£8.6m Mid Pogba has scored 9 goals and 9 assists in 21 starts plus 1 as sub at a PP90 of 6.2. He also has pens.

£5.0m Luke Shaw is still the best defensive option for me although £4.9m Lindelof has started all of the last 9.

Fulham (A)
Liverpool (H)
Crystal Palace (A)
Southampton (H)
Arsenal (A)

Fixture clumps

With the blanks and doubles coming up they dominate the future planning rather than future clumps so this will no longer feature.  There will be an updated blanks and doubles article though
