Playing the fixtures is a key thought process for FPL managers. Thinking about which teams have the best fixtures and how to target them can be key to success. To help FPL managers with their decisions we take a look at the teams with the best fixtures in Gameweek 21.
Fantasy Football Scout members have the opportunity to sort the Fixture Ticker by difficulty. This means that they are able to see how difficult the matches are over a range they have specified. Members are also able to sort the Fixture Ticker by defence and attack. You can sign up as a Fantasy Football Scout member here.
We have sorted the Fixture Ticker by difficulty and the four teams that sit top are Bournemouth, West Ham, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa. We take a look at the teams with the best fixtures in Gameweek 21.
Bournemouth are top of the FFScout Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 21. They play fellow newly promoted side Nottingham Forest at home.
Both Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest have had good runs of form since their promotion last summer. Bournemouth have won all of the last three meetings between these two sides. This includes both games in the Championship last season, as well as their Premier League fixture in August.
Second on the Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 21 are West Ham. West Ham host Everton in Gameweek 21.
West Ham have struggled for form since the restart, losing in both Gameweek 17 and 18, before picking up a draw against Leeds in Gameweek 19.
Jarrod Bowen (£8.0m) has returned in West Ham’s last two matches in the Premier League against opponents Everton. His 19 points come from one goal, two assists, three bonus points and a clean sheet point.
Nottingham Forest sit third on the Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 21. They travel to Bournemouth.
Nottingham Forest have had a reasonable run of form of late. Their recent results include a draw with Chelsea as well as victory over Southampton.
Aston Villa are fourth on the Fixture Ticker for Gameweek 21. They travel to Southampton.
Aston Villa have had a new manager bounce since Unai Emery’s arrival. By winning away at Tottenham in Gameweek 18, as well as beating Manchester United and Brighton before the World Cup. As a result players like Emi Buendia (£5.7m), Lucas Digne (£4.6m), Tyrone Mings (£4.3m) and Ollie Watkins (£7.1m) could be good differentials for FPL managers.
