FanDuel

FanDuel Focus – Gameweek 38

It’s time for our final FanDuel article of the season as we visit our partner game to consider the various contests on offer and also propose an XI for the last day of the campaign.

There’s only one window to enter teams, with all ten fixtures running simultaneously on Sunday. The deadline is at the 3pm kick-offs.

To add a little last-day spice, we’ve also set up a ‘Beat the Scout’ contest for the window, giving you the chance to take on a combined Mark and Jonty XI for a shot at £50 in cash.

The contest is for FanDuel newcomers and veterans alike. For FanDuel first-timers, simply register and deposit funds and you can have a crack at besting Mark and Jonty’s combined team. Vets, meanwhile, just need to follow the link and sort out their Scout-busting team.

Everyone who surpasses Mark and Jonty’s score will be entered into a draw to win £50 in cash – that’s cash, not credit.

For newcomers to FanDuel, check out our pre-season strategy guide, which provides some hints on which types of players to target.

My Strongest XI

Joel Pereira (£4m)

John Terry (£7.4m)

Adrian Mariappa (£7.8m)

Callum Chambers (£8.5m)

Scott McTominay (£5m)

Luka Milivojevic (£7.8m)

Cesc Fabregas (£11.5m)

Mesut Ozil (£12.6m)

Daniel Sturridge (£10.2m)

Gabriel Jesus (£11.8m)

Harry Kane (£13.4m)

The Key Picks

We couldn’t overlook Manchester United’s third-choice keeper Joel Pereira following Jose Mourinho’s strong hint that the youngster is set to for his debut against Crystal Palace. The young Portuguese’s bargain price-tag alone makes him a tempting pick, but he should also pick up a few saves as he attempts to deny Christian Benteke. Furthermore, a clean sheet can’t be ruled out – United have conceded 12 goals in 18 matches at Old Trafford. Only Spurs have a better defensive record at home (9 goals from 19).

John Terry notched the opener at Watford for Chelsea – reminding us of his goal threat and helping him score an impressive 29.25 FanDuel points with 5 CBIs also registered. We’re expecting the centre-back to turn in a similar performance as the champions host Sunderland in a match set to be his last for the club. He’ll likely be pinpointed at set-pieces to deliver a parting goal and, promisingly, the Black Cats have conceded the most headed attempts (60 in 18) on road trips this term.

The Watford back-line has been hit by a host of injuries as they welcome an in-form Manchester City attack to Vicarage Road. Adrian Mariappa is all but guaranteed to face the onslaught and should be busy picking up defensive FanDuel points on Sunday. The centre-back’s 67 clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBIs) and 18 tackles have produced a healthy 20-point average over his last six outings.

We’ve spent big on our third and final defender. Middlesbrough are in store for a tough afternoon at Liverpool with the home side knowing a win will confirm Champions League football next season. Calum Chambers is our pick from the Boro defence – he’s averaged over 10 CBIs and just under three tackles per match this campaign to accrue a 20.8 FanDuel point average.

Similar to our keeper, our first midfielder mainly makes the line-up as a Jose Mourinho budget buy. We don’t have much to go on for Man United’s Scott McTominay, although he did pick up an encouraging 8.25 FanDuel points in under ten minutes when he made a late cameo against Arsenal in Gameweek 36. At a cut-price 5m, the central midfielder acts as an ideal enabler to fit in big-hitters elsewhere.

Our next selection’s end-to-end role suits the FanDuel scoring matrix. Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic netted a penalty to score 28.75 points in the 4-0 victory over Hull City last time out. The Serb has recorded 28 CBIs and 15 tackles over the last six matches to highlight his combativeness. He’s also drawn nine fouls over that period and spot-kick duties underline his threat going forward. An 18-point average over those six fixtures, and a reasonable price, should make him a worthwhile pick at Old Trafford.

Cesc Fabregas arrived from the bench against Watford to score the goal that ensured another win for Antonio Conte’s outfit. Considering he was rested for most of the encounter, it means the Spaniard looks an assured starter for their closing match with Sunderland and his recent influence promises more returns. The Blues midfielder has now tallied five assists and a pair of goals in his last seven starts, while a 41-point average in his previous six home appearances indicates he’s a sound pick in FanDuel against the basement dwellers.

Although we would have liked to fit in Alexis Sanchez as our Arsenal weapon of choice against Everton, Mesut Ozil’s performance last time out in the win over the Black Cats has convinced us to go for the midfielder. The German created 12 chances in the 2-0 win over David Moyes’ side to provide an assist and a 49.75-point FanDuel haul – enough to exceeded Sanchez’s 41.75 points despite the latter’s brace. Three goals and four assists in ten matches for Ozil demonstrates his improved output over the run-in and his creativity could be key to penetrating a stubborn Toffees rearguard in a must-win match for the Gunners.

It’s sensible to pick a differential or two in a FanDuel line-up and we’ve gone for Daniel Sturridge here. The Liverpool forward flourished and scored as part of a front two positioned ahead of a diamond formation against Southampton. He should have plenty of opportunities to net again – the Reds will throw waves of attacks at visitors Boro and the relegated side have conceded 11 goals in their last three away trips.

Gabriel Jesus continues to indicate he has a bright future under Pep Guardiola. A goal and assist in the 3-1 West Brom victory reflected his combined goal threat and playmaking skills. The Brazilian has notched six goals and served up three assists in seven Man City starts, averaging 35 FanDuel points per match. That makes him difficult to ignore for the trip to Watford – the Hornets have leaked eight goals in three outings.

Romelu Lukaku was leading the race for the Golden Boot, but after Harry Kane’s four-goal display at Leicester City the Spurs frontman has made his move. He’ll be keen to further the gap as Spurs roll up to Hull. The Tigers have only two clean sheets (conceding 28 goals in 18 matches) at the KCOM Stadium this term while the England forward now has 12 goals and four assists in eight starts. Over the last four weeks, Kane’s 24 goal attempts and 14 shots on target suggest his irrepressible form will continue to the season’s final whistle.

    Who has missed penalties at St Mary's before?

    I know this season there is Arter, Kane, Tadic, Gabbiadini... any more? Perhaps Arnie owners should be worried 😆

              Do you think I can afford the 4 point hit and still make up the difference? Who would you captain? I imagine he'll go Kane or Sanchez.

                    So much this.

                    Its not that I doubted him I just thought Costa, Alli and Eriksen could cover his points.

                  Wasn't patient with Siggy earlier on. Dropped him for Lallana before Palace and he went into score like 35pts in the next 5 games while Lallana blanked. Hit to remove and a hit to get in. Cost me 43 pts all up

                        Didn't follow my gut to captain Lukaku when he scored 4. Instead changed my mind to Alli for some reason (who score 3 to Lukaku's 21). Still annoyed about it!

                        Lesson learned, when it comes to captaincy, following your gut feeling is often the best option.

                          Not noticing my 2 year old clicking away on my mouse and making a 16 point transfer (I'd left the transfer page open as I was planning ahead and looking at what transfers I would make in the coming weeks) and selling Kane & Alli before they went point crazy v Stoke!

                            Selling Kane before Watford and then being stubborn about it and taking hits galore

                            A lack of money in defence for too long.

                            Getting Kane in a little late (Had Walker, Alli and Eriksen occupying the spots)

                            Although I'm not sure what to do about Kane next year - playing away from WHL make all Spurs assets less appealing.

                            I'll definitely approach the defensive spending differently next year, in view of the rise of the wing backs.

                              Learnt a lot this season. Think it has been one of the toughest in terms of budget.

                              Sold Alonso was one that sticks out as a season long mistake. Felt quite justified when the week I sold him, he returned a 0 or 1. To then getting his 20 odd against Leicester.

                              Avoiding Alli all season has not helped, did the same with Ramsey, didn't see them maintaining the level of points for such a length of time

                            • Limited & Mediocre Mana…

                              A few concepts that I need to learn from:

                              - Need to get better at keeping points chasing out of my decision making process.
                              - Saved transfers are hugely valuable.
                              - Hits are not a bad thing in and of themselves.
                              - Picking a differential captain in a week where there is a standout option is simply a bad play.

                              The most important one though would be the ability to adapt to the climate - I completely screwed myself with the cheap 3rd striker conundrum, I didn't have the balls to switch to 3-5-2 where there were budget 5th midfielders who were actually picking up points.

                              Not having Kane in 37, not having Heaton most of the season, too slow on King.

                                  Mike Dean Before Officiating Swansea vs West Brom. 😆

                                  “Who’s got the big game? Mike’s got the big game,” Dean can be heard chanting to himself in the shower.

                                  ‘Oh boy, Michael, Martin and Anthony are going to pretty pissed off that they have missed this one,’ he thinks to himself. ‘Imagine me giving a penalty in the last minute, West Brom scoring and sending Swansea City down. I’d have to scale a fence and run away, like the referee in that old Nick Hancock clip.’

                                  Dean got dried and dressed in double quick time, pointing at himself in the mirror before giving a brief motivational speech and smiling at the memory of making that ‘Pep talk’ joke to Guardiola. You could tell he was laughing inside.

                                  Having walked downstairs slowly, touching the ceiling above as he passed like they do at Anfield, Dean entered the kitchen to find his wife already with a mouthful of toast. She was reading the paper.

                                  “Hey darling,” she exclaimed, crumbs going everywhere and prompting Dean to mime booking her for reckless making of mess. “It’s a shame that there is nothing on your game today, isn’t it?”

                                  “BE QUIET,” Dean shouted. “Any more dissent and I’ll give you a second yellow. It’s an important day. Swansea could go down.”

                                  “No Mike, I’m right. It says here that Swansea are on 38 points and Hull City 34. It’s all over.”

                                  Dean turned from the kitchen, flounced out of the front door and sat in his car, moodily munching on a Frosties cereal bar. Why did she always have to ruin it? Why did she always have to spoil the fun? It’s the last day of the season. It’s Mike Dean day. At least f**king pretend.

                                  “And it does matter what I do,” Dean said out loud involuntarily. He pulled his thick Laws of the Game book from the glove compartment, and looked up ‘points deductions’ in the index…

                                          Well... if he captains Kane and Kane scores 48 goals...and you captain Sanchez and he gets sent off twice...who knows.

                                        Thoughts on these moves for (-4)?

                                        Hazard ➡ Fabregas
                                        Gabbi ➡ Vardy

                                            If Haz starts it can all go downhill

                                              I'm actually considering something similar. I wonder if that result has knocked them though. What about Sturridge instead?

                                              Or Coutinho and Llorente/Vokes?

                                                                                For all those confident Hazard will play -

                                                                                Remember how many games he has played recently - this will be his fourth in 13 days, and he hardly looks energised. I'd be amazed if Conte starts him in in a meaningless game, especially after a rare 90 minutes in mid-week. That signified to me a likely rest.

                                                                                I expect Willian and Pedro will take the wide roles and Costa will return in the middle. I also don't think it's out of the question that there will be even more rotation than we expect. All those who didn't play on Monday don't necessarily need to come back in - a 2 week 2 day rest before the FA Cup is not absurd by any means. Mourinho has followed a similar logic, with some not playing for a couple of weeks before the Europa final (Valencia, Rashford and Herrera have only started 1 of the last 9 prem games between them). There is a different context, but I'd be really surprised if Chelsea's entire first eleven start the Sunderland game. It will be possible to beat Sunderland with much less.

                                                                                I understand the logic of some who don't wish to buy or sell Chelsea players, but if a transfer is necessary, I think losing Hazard before the likes of Sane and Eriksen (I've seen several of these posts) makes sense.
