FPL best fixtures GW37 – a fixture ease schedule for attacking players and defensive players

Methodology

This article was written before the Thursday fixtures of GW37+

The idea is to have 2 fixture ease schedules as teams don’t have the same quality of defence as they do attack. Take Crystal Palace for instance. Good defence but poor attack.

One schedule 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 and made a general adjustment for home and away which has been significantly reduced for closed door games.

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 as at 16 July
