    FPL managers have a double Gameweek to prepare for this week, with almost every Premier League team playing two matches between this weekend and the next.

    With the Gameweek 19 deadline set at 11:00 (GMT) on Saturday, January 16, you don’t have long to finalise your team for the upcoming games.

    Here is the Gameweek 19 fixture list.

     

    • Wolves vs. West Brom

    • Leeds vs. Brighton

    • West Ham vs. Burnley

    • Fulham vs. Chelsea

    • Leicester vs. Southampton

    • Sheffield United vs. Tottenham

    • Liverpool vs. Manchester United

    • Manchetser City vs. Crystal Palace

    • Arsenal vs. Newcastle

    • West Ham vs. West Brom

    • Leicester vs. Chelsea

    • Manchester City vs. Aston Villa

    • Fulham vs. Manchester United

    • Liverpool vs. Burnley

    • Aston Villa vs. Newcastle

     

    Aston Villa were due to host Everton on Sunday, but that match has been postponed due to Villa’s coronavirus problems.

    It is worth noting that Wolves, Leeds, Brighton, Southampton, Sheffield United, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Arsenal don’t play two games.

    Let’s get stuck into the best picks for Gameweek 19.

    Goalkeepers

    With Ederson (Manchester City) now back from a coronavirus lay-off, the Brazilian goalkeeper is a great pick, with low-scoring Crystal Palace up next for Man City.

    Lukasz Fabianski (West Ham) is already a considerable option, as the Hammers face two low scoring sides in Burnley and West Brom in the coming days.

    Emi Martinez (Aston Villa) and Nick Pope (Burnley) are the highest scoring goalkeepers this season, but they both face tricky upcoming fixtures.

    Defenders

    Andy Robertson (Liverpool) has moved to the top of the charts in terms of points for defenders, although Jan Bednarek (Southampton) and Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) aren’t too far behind.

    Man City could easily secure two clean sheets in the next few days, so Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and the recently revived John Stone are all worth a shot.

    If you’re looking for a decent budget pick, West Ham duo Aaron Cresswell and Angelo Ogbonna are both in great form at the moment.

    Midfielders

    Any Man City midfielder is worth having in your team right now. Of course, Kevin De Bruyne is a premium pick. But Phil Foden and Ilkay Gundogan are more affordable.

    Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Ivan Cavaleiro (Fulham) and Ruben Neves (Wolves) all scored big in the previous round.

    Tomas Soucek (West Ham) and Raphina (Leeds) are in-form cheap selections, while Son Heung-min (Tottenham) is a pricey yet potentially profitable pick.

    Forwards

    It is difficult to ignore this form that Harry Kane (Tottenham) has been in this season. The Spurs man is likely to add to his tally against struggling Sheff Utd.

    Jamie Vardy (Leicester) is expected to play two matches in Gameweek 19, the second of which is against a leaky Chelsea defence.

    Callum Wilson (Newcastle) and Timo Werner (Chelsea) also have two games on the horizon, meaning they are likely to bring in more points.
