The schedule

The schedule uses 20/21 stats only.

The teams are ranked by defensive strength over the season only

Possible transfer targets for GW32


With 2 games in GW32 the best candidates are Reguilon and GK Lloris. However neither are cheap and Spurs haven’t exactly been the most solid defensive team this season. However I firmly believe anything can happen in a DGW so sometimes it’s worth rolling the dice

If you wanted to gamble for less cash then you may want to go for £5.2m Aurier. Doherty is injured with no return date although we haven’t had any update for 2 weeks. Another risk is that Mourinho could easily turn to Tanganga as an alternative. £5.0m Rodon has played the last 3 but there are a competitors in Dier, Sanchez and Alderweireld.

Man City and Chelsea

Can get clean sheets against anyone but rotation with both is rife with both teams in the UCL and FACup as I write this. For City I would choose Stones as he’s the cheapest. Dias might be the better option if City go out against Dortmund. Rudiger remains the best option for me for Chelsea

Man Utd

Great entry point v Burnley. Shaw the best option by miles


Another good entry point home to WBA unless you believe that they truly are transformed into a attacking force. If you can afford the cash then Pereira at £5.9m is the best option otherwise it’s the cheap option of Fofana at £5.0m although he is vulnerable if Leicester go to a back 4


With the only other realistic RCB in Luiz injured £4.2m Holding should hold his place. With Tierney injured there’s really no one except the GK Leno that you can rely on being selected


Great fixtures but defence could be better. Saiss the only option for me

Fixture ease schedule

Here’s a schedule where the teams are ranked by the easiness of the attacking teams they face over the gameweeks to the end of the season

The clean sheet schedule

My schedule tries to focus on the stats that will lead to clean sheets rather than clean sheets themselves but I thought it would be worth while getting the clean sheet schedule from the premier league site

Goalkeeper save %

Here’s another schedule which shows you a goalkeeper save %. It’s not a ranking in itself as you can see there is some correlation between % and clean sheets but does give you some idea of GKs who are good shot stoppers. It’s from the free stats site fbref.com
