I thought everybody is playing in a week from now?! So not every club takes winter break for two weeks? What kind of winter break is that? Kinda silly.

Few teams don't play this week and few don't post next week.

Why are The PL so extremly stupid with our fixtures again.
We play Monday before EL games. Got two full weeks to put that game and they put it on the last day before that one.
Sure we got 16 day break, but 15 days break would be better with more rest for the next game.

Of course it would be the same for Wolves and Arsenal and the CL sides. No need to play monday with our game anyway.
It has been the case in the past too for many sides.
You never see it in the other leagues.

Its over two weeks, but would have been better if the break was for everyone at the same time
Agree this is less fair and feels worse. Although more games to watch so the tv companies still earn a lot from it.
I like having many games at the same day etc. It gives more drama particular with most of the teams near the bottom playing.

Everton vs Palace what a great way to start the week. Honestly it is probably the worst fixture this round.
They got almost nothing to play for. Can't see them go out. Might get europa league, but probably not.
Southampton-Burnley maybe worse I guess. Games you normally would not watch.

Brighton-Watford will be good later. Big game for both.

Forest-Leeds at the same time so will have to split screen those two.

Anyone know why the Fa/Premier league constantly gives us minimal rest and the worst schedule from all sides?
Tv sure is probably why, but they could still put our tv games on saturdays etc before europe.
I guess to be fair they have done similar things at times with Wolves and Arsenal.

Pool on the hand seem to be gifted with the best fixture list ever. Total joke that is.

Zaha been really poor this season. Palace need to cash in on him in the summer.

Perhaps Palace will be that team that just drift in mid table and then fall down the league in the final weeks.

It is certainly sort of ridiculous that we have a 2 week break in games, and then it's dragged out even later to the Monday.
Chelsea v United on the graveyard Monday slot. Ridiculous.
