FPL FIXTURE RANKING GW36 – THE FIXTURE EASE SCHEDULE

An introduction

The schedule ranks the teams fixtures from an attacking perspective. The fixtures are ranked as a whole and there is no inherent increase in ranking for a double gameweek

The teams double gameweeks and blank weeks are marked on the schedule. You can see some of the key players so far in GW35 in Joseph Crilleys GW35 review

The schedule explained

The order of the teams firstly is the best attacking fixtures for GW36-38.

The next column then identifies positively which teams have 2 games in GW37

ATTACKING PLAYER SUGGESTIONS

Here I’m going to take the 6 highest ranked teams with a double fixture in GW37. They are  Spurs, Swansea, Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea and Leicester.  It’s a different presentation in that I’m going to put a basic schedule of  stats for each player suggestion within each club and then some narrative afterwards.

I think the stats are self explanatory but if not Apps is starts+sub appearances.  Pts/90 is FPL points per 90 minutes played.

SPURS

PlayerPositionPriceAppsGoalsAssistsPts/90
KaneFwd12.831+22526.3
AlliMid9.031+18135.4
EriksenMid9.533+01195.8

 

Kane has penalties with Eriksen the set piece man. Spurs are only 5 points ahead of Chelsea in 5th both having 4 games to play.  For the moment then Spurs will need to keep winning which should prevent rotation at least in the short term.

I’ve not included Son as he has competition from Lamela and Moura where Alli and Eriksen do less so.

36 Watford (H)
37 West Brom (A)
37 Newcastle (H)
38 Leicester (H)

SWANSEA

So no one else really and he’s only there as a funds provider for elsewhere.

 36 Chelsea (H)
37 Bournemouth (A)
37 Southampton (H)
38 Stoke (H)




MANCHESTER CITY

PlayerPositionPriceAppsGoalsAssistsPts/90
BernardoMid7.213+19556.7
JesusFwd10.216+91177.1

 

I think the next game will be crucial to see the extent of the rotation that Pep will employ to the end of the season.

At the moment I’ve picked the 2 attacking players that I think are most likely to play 4 games to the end of the season.  Who will play 2 games in DGW37 apart from maybe these 2 is a tricky prediction.   If you think Sterling, D Silva and De Bruyne will get more points even if they play only 2 or 3 games then obviously that’s different.  I think the West Ham game will give more information for the last 4 games.

 36 West Ham (A)
37 Huddersfield (H)
37 Brighton (H)
38 Southampton (A)

MANCHESTER UNITED

PlayerPositionPriceAppsGoalsAssistsPts/90
LukakuFwd11.532+11675.1
SanchezMid11.59+0245.1
LingardMid6.018+12866.7
PogbaMid7.922+15135.9

 

Sanchez’s stats are obviously just for Man Utd

I’d say Lingard’s stats are distorted by his inability to play 90 minutes and uncertain selection but when on the pitch he does perform.   The last 4 games for example he’s started 3 and been a sub in 1.  In the 3 starts he’s averaged 74 minutes.

I’d say Sanchez has penalty duties

36 Arsenal (H)
37 Brighton (A)
37 West Ham (A)
38 Watford (H)

Chelsea

PlayerPositionPriceAppsGoalsAssistsPts/90
HazardMid10.525+51256.7
WillianMid7.119+13686.4

 

Chelsea are 5 points behind Spurs with the same amount of games and 8 points behind UCL distracted Liverpool with a game in hand including a fixture against Liverpool.  So for now all is very much not lost.

I’ve excluded the strikers as I don’t think the pattern of who will start is certain enough and I think they will both take minutes off each other either directly or indirectly.

Hazard has penalty duties and Willian some set piece duties.  Willian has some gametime issues as you can see from the amount of sub appearances.  That can’t have been helped by his rather obvious less than pleased reaction to his substiution.  He started the last 4 before the Burnley match and played 90 minutes in all 4 before being rested completely.  You’d have to say he’s a risk for 2 games in DGW37.

36 Swansea (A)
37 Liverpool (H)
37 Huddersfield (H)
38 Newcastle (A)

Leicester

PlayerPositionPriceAppsGoalsAssistsPts/90
MahrezMid8.930+210115.9
VardyFwd8.933+01724.9

 

It’s hard to imagine anything more unpredictable than a PuelPep team with nothing to play for and 2 games within 4 days as it will be in DGW37.  So while Vardy and Mahrez have been a oasis of selection certainty in a world of selection chaos anything could happen in the next 4 games as we saw from the team sheet against Southampton

36 Crystal Palace (A)
37 West Ham (H)
37 Arsenal (H)
38 Spurs (A)
