I have also compiled a handy fixture guide showing all of the player’s individual fixtures in what should be an easy to follow format. To compliment this I have added in a form guide on the Head to Head record over recent meetings (last 6 matches) for each player.

2016 PLD Fixtures

Unfortunately it won’t tell you who is going to win each match but may help point you in the direction of when each individual player faces an opponent who they fare well against or struggle against. You can also see when each player has a potentially more favourable run of fixtures when they might pick up vital points, or also when they might have a tough run of fixtures.

*On some platforms the guide might not enlarge sufficiently if this is the case you can access a larger version on my twitter feed @3dartanalyst

I hope you find the guide useful, I will be producing plenty of stats and analysis throughout the Premier League so don’t forget to check back here and on my twitter account @3dartanalyst
