Before we know it we are looking at the final gameweek of the season! That said, before we outline our top picks for your armband, let’s revisit our picks from last week to see how they fared.
1. Mohamed Salah – 7 points
2. Eden Hazard – 11 points
3. Alexandre Lazazette – 2 points
Differential – Lucas Digne – 12 points
Gamble – Jamie Vardy – 2 points
So last week was a fairly mixed bag. Hopefully we can suggest some big point scorers for you this week!
Now onto this week’s selections:
1. Sergio Aguero (BHA)
Man City still need to win the last game if they want to seal the title, and typically speaking, GW38 usually draws out big scorers! They take on a Brighton side who are certain to remain in the Premier League, and have nothing to play for, and with City eager to win for the title, I can see Aguero possibly getting a few on Sunday! He needs to scorer two or more to beat Salah to get the Golden Boot (providing Salah doesn’t score any against Wolves), and currently has the best minutes to goal ratio in the league – 119 minutes, very impressive!
2. Eden Hazard (LEI)
Possibly his last league game for Chelsea as he looks set to be leaving for Real Madrid, and if it is, he’ll probably want to go out in style. With 16 goals and 15 assists, he’s been absolutely magnificent all season, getting double points haul 11 times this season! They take on Leicester who’ll be a tough side to beat, but considering how good he’s been all season, it wouldn’t surprise me if he did get another haul!
3. Mohamed Salah (WOL)
For the same reason as Aguero, Liverpool have to win the game against Wolves and hope that Man City don’t against Brighton. Salah is the top scorer in the league currently, and is likely to return from his injury he suffered last weekend. His record, like Hazard’s is amazing, scoring 22 goals and assisting 12 – not bad for a one season wonder eh! I can see him adding to that tally, however Wolves are a tricky side to play, and Liverpool will find it tough to break them down!
Differential – Ryan Babel (NEW)
If you ask for the definition of “Playing for a move”, the answer is Babel. There’s absolutely no chance he’ll stay at Fulham next season, as since his arrival, he’s scored 5 and assisted 4, the second highest goal returns for Fulham behind Mitrovic – amazing considering he only started in GW24. He’s only owned by 0.2%, and would be an amazing differential if he gets a goal or two against Newcastle.
Gamble – Gylfi Sigurdsson (TOT)
Spurs have nothing to play for, they’ve all but certainly guaranteed Champions League football next season, unless they manage to concede 6 against Everton. The phrase “Spurs” comes to mind – surely they can’t “Spurs” this one up? They completed a brilliant comeback to qualify for the final for the first time in their history, and I’d be shocked if they fielded a sting squad for this one – and could see Sigurdsson getting on the scoresheet. Everton have been in good form against the Top 6 sides, but are missing key players such as Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin, so this one is a bit of gamble, especially in the last week!
Thanks for reading and best of luck this week!
