FPL Fixture Difficulty Planner

Use this FPL fixture difficulty planner matrix to pre-plan your Fantasy Premier League team based on upcoming fixtures.

Fixture difficulty plays an important role in how well FPL players perform. Therefore, you need to pick FPL assets taking into account who they’re playing in the upcoming Gameweeks.

Knowing the majority of your players have good fixtures coming up will garner you more points and also stop you taking -4 point fines for multiple transfers.

This fixture analysis matrix will be updated after every gameweek.

For predicted lineups and every player’s percentage chance of starting, check out our FPL Team News page.

Fixture Difficulty Rating

We have used 5 different colours to indicate the difficulty of a fixture. The colour coding purely depends upon the opponent and not the team being analysed.

For example, Chelsea at home to Bournemouth is listed the same as Brighton at home to Bournemouth. Therefore, by the same logic, any team playing away to Man City will be marked as red.

Rather than exaggerating the colours, a lot of fixtures fall in the faded green to orange range. This is because there is a big difference between playing Man City (a) and Arsenal (a). The same can be said for playing Bournemouth (H) and Aston Villa (H).

The colours indicate the difficulty of each fixture as follows:

  • Bright green: Easiest
  • Faded green: Easy
  • Yellow: Average
  • Orange: Hard
  • Red: Hardest
