Which of the ‘top six’ teams have the most favourable fixtures in October?

October’s shaping up to be a busy one for Dream Team fans. 

Your next batch of transfers are available this Friday (October 4), but we think that you should probably wait until after the international break (boo!) to use them – just in case there’s the odd injury or two that needs taking care of.

In the meantime, here’s a look at all the fixtures the Premier League’s so-called ‘top six’ have on the horizon.

Liverpool

  • HOME vs Leicester (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Man United (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Genk (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Spurs (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Arsenal (Carabao Cup)

All of a sudden that 100% league record looks under threat.

Liverpool host Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying Leicester this weekend in what will certainly be an interesting match-up – as will the usually tasty trip to Old Trafford.

Then it’s a north London derby double header, with Spurs in the league and Arsenal in the Carabao Cup.

Will the Reds’ five point lead still be intact by the end of the month?

  • HOME vs Wolves (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Crystal Palace (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Atalanta (Champions League)
  • HOME vs Aston Villa (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Southampton (Carabao Cup)

It’s a month of home comforts for City – with just the single away trip to Crystal Palace to contend.

But before you decide to jam-pack your Dream Team with City stars, remember to keep in mind Pep Guardiola’s bothersome rotation policy – which always makes it tricky to decide on which City players to transfer in.

Arsenal

  • HOME vs Standard Liege (Europa League)
  • HOME vs Bournemouth (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Sheffield United (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Guimaraes (Europa League)
  • HOME vs Crystal Palace (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Liverpool (Carabao Cup)

You never quite know what to expect with Arsenal.

They could end up being embarrassed by the likes of Bournemouth and Sheffield United this month, or they could record fairly straight-forward victories.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still firing on all cylinders and the likes of Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin set to feature in their defence, this could be a good month for the Gunners.

  • AWAY vs Brighton (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Watford (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Red Star (Champions League)
  • AWAY vs Liverpool (Premier League)

It’s been a difficult month for Spurs, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side struggling for form amidst rumours of disharmony inside the dressing room.

It’ll be particularly interesting to see how they recover for their weekend trip to Brighton after the 7-2 drubbing at the hands of Bayern during the week.

Chelsea

6
  • AWAY vs Southampton (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Newcastle (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Ajax (Champions League)
  • AWAY vs Burnley (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Man United (Carabao Cup)

Chelsea have been good fun to watch so far this season, with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount particularly impressing under the leadership of Frank Lampard.

And their month ahead certainly looks juicy – with their trip to Amsterdam perhaps their most eye-catching upcoming fixture.

Man United

  • AWAY vs AZ Alkmaar (Europa League)
  • AWAY vs Newcastle (Premier League)
  • HOME vs Liverpool (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Partizan (Europa League)
  • AWAY vs Norwich (Premier League)
  • AWAY vs Chelsea (Carabao Cup)

United face FIVE tricky away matches in October – including the daunting trip to Serbia in the Europa League – while the only home affair comes up against table-toppers Liverpool.

You get the feeling these next few weeks could make or break Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s managerial career.
