FPL Top Picks for Gameweek 8 out now!

What does Blank Gameweek 25 look like?

The EFL Cup final is officially locked in, therefore we know which four teams will have a Blank Gameweek 25.

At Wembley on Sunday 26 February, Man United and Newcastle will compete for the season’s first trophy. Held on the same weekend as Gameweek 25, these league postponements also mean that original opponents Brentford and Brighton will blank.

FPL managers now have the headache of owning several players without a fixture. Some of the game’s most popular names – Kieran Trippier, Marcus Rashford, Miguel Almiron, Luke Shaw, Nick Pope, Kaoru Mitoma and Ivan Toney.

Adding to the frustration for planners is that it’s not until a few days afterwards that we’ll know the full picture for Blank Gameweek 28 – the weekend of FA Cup quarter-finals.

Legomane assists here, with the 12 double-boxed Gameweek 28 teams still in the cup and possibly blanking.

Managers looking for short-term replacements may be interested in the strong fixtures of Arsenal, Man City, Everton and Aston Villa. All are fine for Gameweek 28.

Whilst the first two sides are likely already at your three-player maximum, Villa have improved under Unai Emery. Perhaps Everton can get a similar new manager bounce under Sean Dyche.

Potential new names include Tyrone Mings, Leon Bailey, James Tarkowski and Demarai Gray.
