With a new set of transfer available on Friday, I thought it would be worth taking a look at teams with the best fixtures during November. Below I’ve listed the teams in order of ease of fixtures.
Man City (5 games)
City have been in fantastic form and have a relatively straightforward run during November. Their most difficult fixture appears to be at the start of the month when they host Arsenal. Other than that they avoid any of the top 6 clubs for the rest of the month. Some players to look at may be:
Any regular defender – they appear to be keeping more clean sheets this season. In my opinion this is because they are so good going forward that they have less to do at the back. Any regular City defender could do well in November.
Sane or Sterling – both players had a fantastic month in October. I’d personally favour Sane as I believe he will start more games. However Sterling is also a good option at a cheaper price. Both continue to get on the score sheet.
Aguero – appears to be in better goal scoring form than Jesus. With City scoring so many goals it makes sense to have one of them at least.
Man Utd (5 games)
Man Utd also get the month off to a tricky start as they travel to Chelsea. However they then don’t face a top 6 opposition for the rest of the month. Players I’d be looking at include:
Any regular defender – for a similar reason as City, I think it’s important to include a regular Man Utd defender based on the number of clean sheets they are picking up. I’ve currently got Valencia but I’m thinking about cashing him in for a cheaper alternative in Bailly.
Lukaku – he may be on a run of games without a goal at the moment but I think it would be a brave move to take him out. I’m fairly confident he will be back on form before long and this is just a momentary dip in form.
Spurs (5 games)
West Brom (H)
Spurs also have a decent set of fixtures for the month. In a similar way to both the Manchester clubs they only have one fixture against a top 6 club. However they face a slightly more difficult game in the Champions League. Players I’d consider are:
Sanchez – looks good value and with Alderweireld potentially out injured he could get a run of games.
Eriksen/Alli – I’d imagine both of these will finish within the top 10 highest scoring midfielders for the season. There is very little between them. Eriksen has been more consistent but Alli is looking to be hitting form at the moment.
Kane – by far the highest scoring player on the game. For me he’s essential unless he picks up a long term injury.
Chelsea (5 games)
Man Utd (H)
West Brom (A)
Chelsea have slightly more difficult fixtures with games against both Liverpool and Man Utd. Their current form is also a little concerning. Players potentially worth considering are:
Cahill or Luiz – both are relatively cheap. However Chelsea can’t seem to keep a clean sheet at the moment. Could be worth a risk as I’d imagine their values will rise over the course of the season.
Hazard – had a good October and will hopefully carry this point scoring form through into November. Could continue to rise quickly if he does.
Everton (5 games)
West Ham (H)
On paper Everton probably have the best fixtures out of all of the teams discussed. However given their recent form I’ve placed them much further down the list. I personally wouldn’t recommend any of their players at this point in time. However if you’re looking for a cheap defender, most of their defenders are dirt cheap at the moment. This is mainly because they have been so poor defensively. If this doesn’t change it will be a waste of a transfer.
Liverpool (5 games)
West Ham (A)
The majority of the top clubs have relatively easy fixtures for the month so it has been a little difficult to order them. You could argue that Liverpool should be much further up the list. They only face Chelsea out of the top 6 teams, however do travel to Sevilla in the Champions League. The only player I’d consider is:
Salah – he’s the highest scoring midfielder and his good start to the season looks set to continue. I almost expected his form to drop off in the same way Mkhitaryan’s has. However he is still consistently getting on the score sheet.
Arsenal (5 games)
Man City (A)
FC Koln (A)
Arsenal kick off the month with games against City and Spurs. They also rotate quite heavily for the Europa League. As a result I probably wouldn’t make a move for any of their players at this point in time.
