Here are our FPL Way Picks for the last Gameweek of the season. The deadline for GW38 is on Sunday 23rd May at 14:30.
Like we do every week, we build a team who we feel will make a solid team for the Gameweek with a 100 million budget. This weeks team comes out at 99.5 million. You may have more funds in the bank so there are possible upgrades you could potentially do here.
Before we get started, let’s have a look at the last fixtures of the season sorted by overall difficultly.
THE FPL WAY XV – WHO ARE THE BEST FPL PLAYERS TO OWN FOR GW38?
We will be going through all the fixtures for our team selection and will provide you with the reason as to why we have selected them.
Fulham vs Newcastle
We have one player from this matchup which is Joseph Willock (4.8m). This guy is in great form at the moment, providing an attacking return in the last 6 Gameweeks where he got game time. In 3 of these games, he was subbed on very late in the game and still managed to get a goal. Game time doesn’t seem to be an issue now since he has been in the starting XI in the last 3 matches. With him accumulating 24 points in the last 3 games, we’re pretty confident he will add another attacking return to his tally in this favourable fixture.
Leeds vs West Brom
We have tripled up on Leeds assets here with Illan Meslier (4.8m), Stuart Dallas (5.4m) and Patrick Bamford (6.5m). Leeds have kept two clean sheets in their last 2 games and we certainly feel this will happen again in their final fixture. Dallas is especially a great pick as he plays a more attacking role, accumulating 8 goals and 3 assists so far this season. We feel there will be plenty of goals in this fixture, especially in Leeds favour. That being said, we just had to include Bamford in our starting XI. He got a goal and an assist in their 2-0 win against The Saints and we’re fairly confident he will add more to his tally on Sunday!
We have one pick for West Brom with Matheus Pereira (5.4m). If there is one man that will get an attacking return in this squad, it will be this Brazillian star. In the last 5 Gameweeks, he has scored 3 and assisted once. Pereira has scored a total of 11 goals and 7 assists so far this season, that being said, we just had to feature him in our starting XI.
Leicester vs Spurs
We have just the two players in this fixture for Spurs with Heung-Min Son (9.7m) and Harry Kane (11.9m). Did you know, Harry Kane has actually scored 14 goals in 10 Premier League appearances against Leicester, more than he has netted versus any other opponent in the competition. With both Kane and Salah joint top goal scorers with 22 goals, he will be fighting for goals to ensure he gets the Golden Boot this season. We all know Son and Kane make a great partnership, so we can expect to see some attacking returns from the pair in this fixture.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
Trent Alexander-Arnold (7.7m) and Mohamed Salah (12.8m) are our two picks for Liverpool. TAA has definitely had a better end to the season and is finally justifying his high price tag. Since Gameweek 28, TAA has scored a goal and provided 5 assists and has accumulated 70 points since then (that’s an average of ~7.8 points per game). In the reverse fixture, Liverpool surprised us all with their 7-0 win, can they repeat history? We sure hope so! As already mentioned, Salah is joint head-to-head with Kane in the battle for the golden boot. With a nice fixture for them, the fact he is the Egyptian hero and scored 2 goals in the reverse fixture; how could you not include this legend.
Sheffield Utd vs Burnley
The only pick for this fixture is Chris Wood (6.5m). With Burnley facing the relegated bottom of the league and getting some nice attacking returns late on in the season, this guy is a no-brainer really. With only 4.3% ownership and scoring 12 goals this season so far, we’re confident he will add to his tally in this fixture. Maybe this guy could be the crazy punt differential captain to gain that last-minute boost of rank you are needing? Massive cahonas would be required for this obviously…
West Ham vs Southampton
The only selection we have here is Vladimir Coufal (4.8m). Well, West Ham will be wanting to finish their season on an absolute high. A win would definitely secure a Europa League spot for The Hammers so they will definitely want to win this game. Hopefully, we will see a West Ham clean sheet and hopes for a Coufal attacking return in this fixture. An assist would be great, a goal would be the cherry on the cake.
Our Bench Picks
Will Norris (4.0m)
With Pope out with a shoulder injury, we could see Norris starting in the most favourable fixture of the Gameweek. A clean sheet here on paper and a very reasonable price tag; that’s why he’s our sub GK.
Phil Foden (6.1m)
Foden could make a great pick for this GW, but with Pep Roulette, well… you know, you can never be too confident on Man City assets. When he does feature, he kills it. This youngster is a star in the making, if he starts, we can definitely see some nice attacking returns here.
Victor Lindelöf (4.8m)
With Wolves not scoring in the last two Gameweeks, we can see this becoming a 3rd on the trot. Great bench fodder, a hopeful clean sheet… That brings this fella into our team.
Rob Holding (4.3m)
An awesome budget defender here, a possibility for a clean sheet, again… great bench fodder!
