So here we are biding farewell to yet another Premier League season as we approach the final gameweek of the season. All the managers will be looking for a good final gameweek in order to help them surge up in the rankings. So here we are for one last time this season, with our FPL Gameweek 38 Preview.
So until the next season, goodbye, good luck and may your arrows be green!
Arsenal vs Everton
The Toffees have had a successful season this time around having 7th place confirmed and nothing but pride to play for this week as they travel to the Emirates on the final day. The Gunners on the other hand have had back to back wins, as they still hold onto the small glimmer of hope that they can get into the top 4 and pick up a spot for the Champions League.
STAR MAN: Alexis Sanchez (11.6m)
The explosive Chilean scored in both the gameweek 37 fixtures and will be looking to end the season on a high with the Golden Boot still in touching distance.
PREDICTION: Arsenal 3-1 Everton
Burnley vs West Ham
The Hammers are on the back of a hammering at home courtesy of the mighty Liverpool and will definitely be looking to bounce back this week. Meanwhile Burnley have always be tight at the back when playing at home and could be looking to break on the counter, however it will likely be their defence that is busiest this week.
STAR MAN: Tom Heaton (5.1m)
The English shot stopper is bound to have a busy day in between the sticks.
PREDICTION: Burnley 1-0 West Ham
Chelsea vs Sunderland
A game where the newly crowned Champions come up against the side rock bottom of the league, with relegation more than confirmed. We can see nothing but another Chelsea masterclass at the Bridge this week, but do keep in mind that with the FA Cup Final on the horizon, Conte may be looking to shuffle the pack and give a few of the key men a rest.
STAR MAN: John Terry (5.2m)
The departing club veteran will definitely be poised to deliver one last time for the fans.
PREDICTION: Chelsea 3-0 Sunderland
Hull vs Tottenham
Relegation has finally been confirmed for the home side as they welcome a lively Spurs side. The Tigers have nothing but pride to play for and will be looking to have a go at Pochettino’s men. A surprise might be on the cards, however will Spurs putting 6 past Leicester it will be a tough task.
STAR MAN: Harry Kane (11.7m)
His eyes will definitely be on the Golden Boot.
PREDICTION: Hull 2-2 Tottenham
Leicester vs Bournemouth
Both the sides level in the league table and a win for either promises a top half finish in the league table. Both sides believe in counter attacking style of football, which will be a treat to watch, but with the home crowd behind the Foxes, they might just edge the tie.
STAR MAN: Riyad Mahrez (8.9m)
The Algerian will be looking to step up in a game which could be his last for the club.
PREDICTION: Leicester 2-1 Bournemouth
Liverpool vs Middlesbrough
Historically, the final game of the season at Anfield has always been full of action and drama. Here the Reds face a relegated Boro side who are looking to earn some pride by giving it their all and trying to come away with a miraculous victory at Anfield. It does seem highly unlikely, even though Liverpool don’t have the best record against the clubs in the bottom half of the table. With Champions League qualification on their minds Liverpool are sure to go out and win this encounter.
STAR MAN: Daniel Sturridge(9.6m)
After scoring in his previous game, he will be looking to impress his manager again and try gain more of his trust.
PREDICTION: Liverpool 2-0 Middlesbrough
Manchester United vs Crystal Palace
Jose Mourinho has been talking about concentrating on the Europa League for quite some time now. They are guaranteed to finish in sixth place and Mourinho will be planning to field some of his youngsters for sure. Palace on the other hand can cause damage on the break and there is always a pertinent threat from Benteke in the air. This is a highly unpredictable game, but the United players will be looking to end the season on a high with a home win.
STAR MAN: Christian Benteke (7.2m)
With Mourinho hinting about resting some players. Palace will be looking to take advantage of the situation and Benteke may just do that.
PREDICTION: Manchester United 2-2 Crystal Palace
Southampton vs Stoke
After a great defensive performance against the Red Devils away from home last gameweek the Saints will be looking to end the season with a win against The Potters on home turf, confirming their 8th place finish. Stoke on the other hand have had a poor season by their standards and have no chance of finishing in the top half now. This should be an open game with both teams going for the win.
STAR MAN: Nathan Redmond(5.9m)
With no confirmation of who’s gonna start the game, he is one of the few nailed on to start and he’s been in good form recently!
PREDICTION: Southampton 2-1 Stoke
Swansea vs West Brom
After their crucial win last week, The Swans have been assured Premier League football next season and are now free of any real pressure. The Baggies on the other had will be looking for a win and keep their place in the top half of the table. With the home advantage and the recent good form Swansea seem the favourites to get the three points from this game.
STAR MAN: Gylfi Sigurdsson (7.4m)
What a season this man has had and how important a role he has played in Swansea’s survival. He will be looking to stamp his mark on the game with another jaw dropping performance.
PREDICTION: Swansea 2-0 West Brom
Watford vs Manchester City
The Hornets have had a decent season, but their manager Mazzarri has decided to end his stay at the Vicarage road, as the club recently announced that he will be departing this summer. The Manchester Blues on the other hand need just a point to confirm a spot in the top four, but with City’s unpredictable nature and Watford’s goal scoring threat, this game might just be a cracker of a contest.
STAR MAN: David Silva (8.6m)
The Spaniard has come back from injury and has straight away found some cracking form. Silva is likely to be the key to unlock Watford’s defence.
PREDICTION: Watford 2-3 Manchester City
Thank you all for your constant and never ending support. We hope to see you again next season.
