Liverpool among 11 teams affected

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers’ plans were thrown into further disarray on Friday afternoon with the announcement of two more Double Gameweeks.

Double Gameweek 28 will feature two fixtures for Aston Villa, Leeds United, Newcastle United, Southampton, Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Double Gameweek 29 will involve Arsenal, Brighton and Hove Albion, Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur playing twice.

Only one side – Newcastle – have back-to-back doubles in Gameweeks 28 and 29, so 11 different clubs are affected.

Only seven outstanding fixtures now remain unscheduled but more will have to be rearranged as a result of the clash with the FA Cup in Gameweeks 30 and 33.

    • Gameweek 30: No chance of a Double Gameweek and a near-certain chance of it being a Blank Gameweek, as it will clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals. Aston Villa v Arsenal, Wolves v Leeds and Leicester v Brentford are the only fixtures that so far will definitely go ahead.
    • Gameweek 33: A free midweek does allow for a Double Gameweek, although the weekend games do clash with the FA Cup semi-finals, too.
    • Gameweek 36: A free midweek allows for a Double Gameweek. This is likely to be the biggest Double Gameweek of the season.

    There is also a chance of there being other small Double Gameweeks in Gameweeks 31, 32, 34, 35 and 37, with the results of cup competitions home and likely to dictate that abroad.
