It’s the penultimate FPL game week of the season and its last chance saloon for fantasy managers looking to climb up the ranks and catch up to their mini-league rivals. Game-Week 37 also sees fans return to Premier League stadiums all across the country for the first time this season which might also have a big impact on the matches. Compared to historical data, away sides have picked up more points this season but that might change this week as home teams will get a big boost playing in front of their fans for the first time in over a year.
There are plenty of exciting FPL assets to own for the last two weeks of the season and here are our FPL picks for game-week 37.
GK: Ederson (MCI) – £6.1m
Guardiola has confirmed that Ederson will start the final two Premier League games of the season and after conceding 3 goals against Newcastle last time out, City should shore up their defence against a Brighton side that have struggled for goals this season.
DEF: Lucas Digne (EVE) – £6.2m
Lucas Digne has great clean-sheet potential this week as Everton face off against a Wolves side that have only scored 15 goals away from home all season.
DEF: Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) – £7.7m
Trent Alexander-Arnold has 1 goal, 5 assists and two clean-sheets since game-week 30 and is a must-have option for the last two game-weeks of the season with Liverpool facing Burnley and Crystal Palace.
DEF: Luke Shaw (MUN) – £5.5m
Manchester United are one of the favourites to keep a clean sheet this week as they face a Fulham side that have only scored 26 goals this season and only twice in their previous 5 matches.
MID: Bruno Fernandes (MUN) – £11.4m
Fulham have conceded 9 shots in the box and 3 big chances per game in their last 4 matches and their defence has declined considerably since being relegated which makes Bruno Fernandes one of the standout options for FPL managers.
MID: Mohammed Salah (LIV) – £12.8m
Mohammad Salah is the bookies favourite to get on the scoresheet in game-week 37 as Liverpool look to get back into the Champions League places. Salah has recorded either a goal or assist in each of his last four PL matches and is also one of the standout captaincy picks this game week.
MID: Mason Greenwood (MUN) – £7.3m
Mason Greenwood has been electric in recent weeks, scoring 6 goals in his last 7 games and is expected to start after his rest against Liverpool last Thursday. In his last six matches, Greenwood has recorded a shot in the box every 22 minutes and a big chance every 118 minutes and could be in for another big haul against Fulham.
MID: Joe Willock (NEW) – £4.8m
Joe Willock has scored 5 goals in 5 games for Newcastle and is the perfect cheap enabler for your FPL squad at £4.8m. Willock has taken 4 shots in the box in his last two games and faces Sheffield United at home this week.
FWD: Harry Kane (TOT) – £11.8m
Harry Kane took an astonishing 7 shots against Wolves at the weekend and racked up an incredible 1.7 xG. With Tottenham having nothing much to play for and Kane gunning for the Golden Boot, expect plenty of more points from the Englishman before the end of the season.
FWD: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) – £7.6m
Everton have a dismal record at home this season and Dominic Calvert-Lewin disappointed last time out against Sheffield United but the Everton striker remains a good option this week against a Wolves defence that conceded 24 shots in their previous match.
FWD: Michail Antonio (WHU) – £6.6m
Injury problems aside, Michail Antonio has been incredible in terms of FPL this season and has a great fixture this week against West Brom. Antonio has the most shots in the six-yard box over the past six games and West Ham will want to finish the season strong in their last two matches to qualify for Europe.
Just like last week, Harry Kane and Mohammed Salah are the two standout options for captaincy and after going for Salah last time out, my armband will be on Harry Kane for this round of matches. Kane has been desperately unlucky not to score more points in the past few weeks and comes up against an Aston Villa side that is without Tyrone Mings and Matty Cash and conceded over 20 shots in their previous match against Crystal Palace.
