Important notes before reading

This article was written before the Liverpool West Ham game on Monday.

The article only looks 3 games ahead because of the uncertainty over the fixtures in GW31 caused by a clash with the FA Cup quarter finals.  More detail on that below

Methodology

The idea is to have 2 fixture ease schedules as teams don’t have the same quality of defence as they do attack. Take Arsenal for instance. One will rank the teams by the ease of the opposition defences they face over the upcoming games. That will be called the attackers fixture ease schedule. The 2nd will rank the teams by the ease of the attacking teams they face. This will be called the defenders fixture ease schedule.

I’ve taken the overall picture of an average of actual goals and expected goals from 26 games and made a general adjustment for home and away. This will be less volatile than basing a defence or attack on separate games home or away.

I have a fixture graphic below which I’ve colour coded for difficulty. It is just to improve the visual aspect of the schedule and the factors I’ve talked about above, rather than the just the colours, are basis for calculation.

Player values are  Monday 23 February

Blanks GWks GW28 and GW31

Apologies if you’ve seen this summary in recent articles but it’s important context for a number of articles. You can see more detail in my recent article on the blanks and doubles

Blank GW28

As will be obvious when you read the fixtures that GW28 only has 8 fixtures.

The EFL cup final clashes with GW28 meaning there are the following postponements.

Sheffield United v Aston Villa

Man City v Arsenal

Where they go is yet to be determined.

Blank GW31

The FA Cup 6th round clashes with GW31 meaning there are postponements;

The only guaranteed games are

Burnley v Watford

Wolves v Bournemouth

The most likely other fixture is Norwich v Everton.  That  will remain if Norwich lose to Spurs in the 5th round

The fixtures for GW31 will be resolved between GW28 and GW29 when the 5th round fixtures are played.

Again my blanks and doubles article will give more detail
