Premier League Fixtures Analysis – Gameweek 33

Premier League Fixtures Analysis – Gameweek 33


As weeks pass and the end of the season slowly approaches, Gameweek 33 offers an opportunity for fantasy premier league managers to regain ground or extend leads at the top. Let’s face it, we all love a double gameweek and the opportunity to hit the magical 100-point mark, the cogs start turning as we examine the fixtures to see which players need to be drafted in and whether points hits are worthy of consideration.

The risks you take will largely depend on your situation, if you need to catch a rival, time is definitely running out and it might be worth a gamble. If you’re protecting a lead, it could be better to play it safe; these are the thoughts that go through your fantasy football mind as the gameweeks steadily fly by.

Guaranteed Doubles

– Arsenal: Norwich (H) and Everton (H)

– Everton: QPR (H) and Arsenal (A)

– Fulham: Aston Villa (A) and Chelsea (H)

– West Ham: Southampton (A) and Man United (H)

Possible Doubles

Depending on who wins the FA Cup replay on April 1st (2 days after league matches), one of United or Chelsea will have a double whilst the other team will just have one fixture in Gameweek 33.

– Man United: Stoke (A) and West Ham (A)
– Chelsea: Tottenham (H) and Fulham (A)

Blank Gameweeks

The fallout from the FA Cup fixtures will leave some teams with blank gameweeks:

– Swansea

– West Brom

– One of Stoke or Spurs depending on the FA Cup replay

The Analysis

With so much to analyse, we’ve split the teams into sections and will release the articles over the next few days. On Monday, there will be an article discussing Arsenal’s double gameweek, Everton will be covered on Tuesday and the rest will feature on Wednesday. This should help with the lack of action due to the internationals and will stand you in good stead as Gameweek 33 approaches.
