What we know so far

**Last updated: Monday 7 March**

We’ve had plenty of ‘blanks’ in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) so far this season and now we’re on a run of Double Gameweeks as we attempt to catch up.

We’ve already seen ‘doubles’ in Gameweeks 21-23, while Double Gameweek 25 had an extra fixture for both Manchester United and Brighton.

Double Gameweek 26 featured eight teams playing twice but only Burnley had a Double Gameweek 27

Eight sides will have a Double Gameweek 28 and a half-dozen will have a Double Gameweek 29; Newcastle United are the only side with back-to-back doubles across those two Gameweeks.

There were cup-related blanks in Gameweeks 24, 25 and 27, meanwhile, with more to follow in Gameweeks 30 and 33.

A total of 13 outstanding matches are still to be rearranged.

The good news is that, while more Covid-related postponements can’t be completely ruled out, falling positive cases and the Premier League’s tightening of rules for match cancellations should mean this is much less of a danger than before.

With the situation constantly evolving, our Blank and Double Gameweek guide rounds up what we know at present.

  • Gameweek 28: A Double Gameweek for Aston Villa, Chelsea, Leeds United, Newcastle United, Norwich City, Southampton, Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
  • Gameweek 29: A Double Gameweek for Arsenal, Brighton and Hove Albion, Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.
  • Gameweek 30: A Blank Gameweek with no chance of a Double Gameweek. Aston Villa v Arsenal, Wolves v Leeds, Leicester v Brentford and Spurs v West Ham are the only fixtures that will 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.
