The Schedule

The schedule uses 20/21 stats only.

The teams are ranked by defensive strength only 

You can access the google spreadsheet here

Player values and stats were Tuesday 9  March

Possible transfer targets

This week I’m going to concentrate on the 8 teams that have fixtures in the big blank GW29 and a good entry point fixture in GW28.  There are only 2 teams in my view


Brighton have a Danny Ing-less Southampton away in GW28 and then a home game v Newcastle in GW29.  That’s a pretty reasonable combination.  My ideal choice here is Lewis Dunk who’s strong at set pieces and also has some share of direct free kicks.  For that reason he is the most expensive at £4.9m.  If you want to go cheap I’d go for cheapie £4.3m RB Veltman.  He’s started 11 of the last 12 and the last 5.  With Lamptey out for the season potentially he seems pretty safe from competition.  His attacking stats are good also.


Although the Villa defence has a great fixture at Newcastle the GW29 one at home to Spurs is far from ideal.  That’s why if you have Martinez as your GK I’d just stick with him.  Alternatively then I’d go for £4.6m Konsa who seems the best of the attacking options.  If you’re absolutely stuck for funds then £4.3m El Mohamady may just about get you through GW29 before Matty Cash is fit again but it is a risk.

Sides that have IMPROVED in the last 10 gameweeks vs the season

The big improvers in rank between the season ranking and the last 10 ranking are Leeds, WBA, Man Utd, West Ham and Fulham

Sides that have WORSENED in the last 10 gameweeks vs the season

The big falls in rank between the season ranking and the last 10 ranking are Southampton, Villa, Sheffield, Liverpool and Arsenal

Fixture Ease

Here’s a schedule where the teams are ranked by the easiness of the attacking teams they face over the next 5 gameweeks

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

GK saves vs expected saves

This is done on a 90 minute basis to show you how the GK has performed in saves vs how likely they were expected to save the shot
