Friday afternoon has brought an official Premier League announcement that confirms February TV dates and – from an FPL viewpoint – the much-anticipated creation of a Double Gameweek that starts tomorrow (Saturday).
KNOWN GW21 POSTPONEMENTS
Leicester vs Norwich
Southampton vs Newcastle
NEW GW21 ADDITIONS
Southampton v Brentford (Tuesday 11th January, 19:45)
Everton v Leicester (Tuesday 11th January, 20:00)
West Ham v Norwich (Wednesday 12th January, 19:45)
Three of the sides set to be without a Gameweek 21 match now have one, with Newcastle the only Premier League competitor missing out completely.
The following three teams have a Double Gameweek 21:
BRENTFORD vs Aston Villa (H), Southampton (a)
EVERTON vs Brighton (H), Leicester (H)
WEST HAM vs Crystal Palace (a), Norwich (H)
With the Gameweek 21 deadline closing at 11am on Saturday morning, expect the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Michail Antonio and Demarai Gray to gain popularity. Some mavericks may even go for the returning Dominic Calvert-Lewin, although Rafael Benitez will likely manage his minutes carefully.
