With fresh transfers upon us, I thought it would be a useful time to consider the upcoming fixtures for October. Below I’ve focused on the top eight teams from last year’s Premier League season and sorted them in terms of teams with the best fixtures. I’ve only focused on these clubs as they will have an additional fixtures during the month, I’ve also included Leicester due to their good start to the season.
Man City (5 games)
Southampton (H) – EFL Cup
Man City again top the list of top teams with the best fixtures. This is a worry as I don’t own Aguero and the whole team seem to be scoring goals for fun. However the biggest problem with City is the player rotation, which can be difficult to predict. Either way, on paper they’ve got a decent month of fixtures coming up.
Arsenal (5 games)
Sheff Utd (A)
Liverpool (A) – EFL Cup
Arsenal haven’t made the greatest start to the new season, however they do have some players who are performing well. They’ve got some decent Premier League fixtures during October and it will hopefully be a big month for Aubameyang.
Spurs (4 games)
Despite a difficult away fixture at Liverpool, Spurs have a good run of fixtures. I’m hoping Brighton will face the backlash of a big defeat in the Champions League with a few goals from Kane at the weekend. They also have an easier Champions League tie during the month, which is probably a must win game.
Chelsea (5 games)
Man Utd (H) – EFL Cup
Chelsea are another team with some decent fixtures during October. They do have a tough Champions League game where they travel to Ajax. I’ve still got question marks next to them defensively but October could be the month where this changes.
Man Utd (5 games)
Chelsea (A) – EFL Cup
On paper Man Utd have good fixtures for the month, other than playing Liverpool. I’ve placed them further down the list due to their recent poor form. I’d imagine they will have a fairly unpredictable month.
Wolves (5 games)
Man City (A)
Villa (A) – EFL Cup
I really don’t fancy Wolves against Man City at the weekend but after this game their fixtures do improve. It’s also interesting to see Boly top of the defenders list for points on the board. He would certainly be a player who would tempt me due to his goal threat but I personally don’t want to double up with Patricio.
Liverpool (5 games)
Man Utd (A)
Arsenal (H) – EFL Cup
Liverpool could well be fixture proof, however they do have a particularly tough month. They have a potential banana skin game against Leicester at the weekend and then travel to Man Utd. They also host Spurs later in the month.
Leicester (4 games)
Burton (A) – EFL Cup
Leicester travel to Liverpool this weekend and they have no additional European fixtures. As a result I’ve placed them at the bottom of this list. I personally won’t be making a move for any of their players at this point in time.
