Gameweek 8 FPL Form Table - Home vs. Away

Attacking FPL assets from Manchester City, Chelsea and Norwich are favourable picks for Gameweek 8 fixtures.
Our Fantasy Premier League Form Chart represents the position in the Premier League form tables for each team, pitched against each other over a period of 3 games – along with other vital information, such as goals scored and conceded for every team.
I (@FPL_vs) will explain the chart so you can use it to your advantage in your Fantasy Premier League world to gain the edge on your rivals – unless of course, they too are also reading this!
The Form Chart explained
If we look at the Gameweek 8 chart above, we can see each game represented in the middle, with the home team on the left and the away team to the right.
The teams’ position in the form table (over 3 home games, or 3 away games) is illustrated using the coloured bars.
If a team’s bar is Green (Winning Team) that means they are higher in the form table than their opponents.
It is possible for both teams to be in the same position in their respective form table (for example 5th in the home form table vs 5th in the away form table) if this occurs then I use the GF and GA stats to decide which bar is Green.
GF (Goals For) states the amount of goals the team has scored over their last 3 home or away games.
GA (Goals Against) states the amount of goals the team has conceded over their last 3 home or away games.
What’s the Goal Swing?
The fixture with the highest Goal Swing will then glow bright meaning the Winning Team in that fixture is projected to score the most goals.
Goal Swing = GF of the Winning Team (Green Bar) + GA of the Losing Team (Red Bar).
The fixture with the highest Goal Swing will then glow orange meaning the Winning Team in that fixture is projected to score the most goals.
In my weekly tweet I will also state which teams came close (2nd and 3rd) in this Goal Swing measure.
For Gameweek 8, the order is:
> 1st Man City: GF14 + GA4 = Swing of +18
> 2nd Norwich: GF8 + GA7 = Swing of +15
> 3rd Chelsea: GF8 + GA8 = Swing of +14
That’s it, it’s really that simple and these charts have proved very useful for me (@FPL_vs) and others in the past.
When I first created this, I used it to pick my captain and commenced a 10 Gameweek winning captain streak with this change in approach.
In the past, I have used the same format above but with different stats – including ‘total form’ over 3 and 6 games, ignoring the home or away bias. However, I believe the last 3 home vs the last 3 away is a more accurate view of form for each game, in my opinion.
If you’ve any questions about any of the above, then please don’t hesitate to send me a tweet via my Twitter handle @FPL_vs and thank you for reading.
