Fantasy Premier League Upcoming Schedule: Teams with the Best Fixtures
Manchester City, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham have five matches in the next four gameweeks. These four sides will play more than the other teams.
Opponents: West Ham United (h), Wolves (h), Manchester United (h), Southampton (h), Fulham (a), blank
Manchester City have the best fixtures coming up. In fact, the runaway leaders have four home games coming up on the trot in the next two gameweeks. They are the only team to have back-to-back double gameweeks. Also, they have a good fixture in gameweek 28 as well against Fulham.
Having three players from Pep Guardiola’s side seems a no-brainer. However, one has to be aware of the rotation risks. Guardiola loves to rotate his players and with so many matches coming up, he will do it even more. They have five matches in the next four gameweeks. All of their players are good options and nobody is safe from rotation these days. So, just pick three and hope for the best.
Opponents: Burnley (h), Fulham (a), Crystal Palace (h), Arsenal (a), Aston Villa (a)
Jose Mourinho’s side have been out of form for a while but they can pick up valuable points in the five matches coming up. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are the only ones to target from their side for this period. None of the matches will be easy but Spurs could potentially win all of them.
Opponents: Leeds United (a), Sheffield United (a), Wolves (h), Newcastle United (a), Spurs (h)
Villa have some nice-looking fixtures coming up. As one of the four teams with a match in gameweek 29, their players should be targeted. Emiliano Martinez, Jack Grealish, Ollie Watkins, Matt Targett and Ross Barkley are the best picks.
Opponents: Sheffield United (a), Chelsea (h), Fulham (h), Wolves (a), Blank
Despite Liverpool’s poor form, Mohamed Salah has still produced a lot of FPL points. The fixture against the blades looks tempting as they will be without John Egan. One should not ignore Salah.
Opponents: Arsenal (h), Burnley (a), Brighton (a), Sheffield United (h), Blank
High-flying Leicester City have some tricky fixtures coming up. However, they could still do quite well in them. Harvey Barnes and James Maddison should be considered. Not sure about spending a lot of units on Jamie Vardy though.
Apart from the teams mentioned above, Bruno Fernandes is a player one cannot look past. He has tough fixtures coming up with trips to Chelsea and Manchester City in the next four. However, he can do well in any game. As the penalty-taker, he is never far away from producing a big score.
