How the FPL title race looks ahead of Gameweek 38 finale

Fantasy Football Scout member Adam Levy is in a very strong position to become the 2018/19 Fantasy Premier League champion.

The New Zealand manager has held the number one spot since Gameweek 29 and from then onwards has only consolidated his position.

Crucially, he pulled in triple-figure hauls for every single one of his chip deployments apart from the second Wildcard.

Playing his Triple Captain on Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) in Double Gameweek 25, he scored 125 points.

The Free Hit chip in Double Gameweek 32 yielded a score of 102, while a Bench Boost in Double Gameweek 35 produced a 117-point haul.

Despite not playing any chips in Gameweek 36, Adam still managed 109 points to strengthen his position ahead of the final two sets of matches.

All of those scores helped him create one of the biggest cushions an overall leader has ever enjoyed going into the final day of the season.

The gap between him and second-placed Falah Allawati stands at a massive 60 points.

The would-be challenger from Oman may also be out of chips but does have a few assets over the world leader.

Adam Levy’s team in Gameweek 37

At this point in time, there is an overlap of just six players between the two squads, Hugo Lloris (£5.4m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.8m), Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m), Raheem Sterling (£11.7m), Son Heung-min (£8.7m) and Raúl Jiménez (6.9m) the assets they share.

Crucially, at this stage, Adam has no Liverpool attackers.

He currently has a double-up on their defence with both Andrew Robertson (£6.8m) and Alexander-Arnold.

The fact that Falah owns Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) could prove the difference, although Son’s suspension may have opened an easy opportunity for Adam to cover the Egyptian off.

As of Friday night, Adam had cashed in the two free transfers he banked in Gameweek 36, opting to do them fairly early.

Son will have almost certainly been one of these, and a downgrade of Christian Eriksen (£9.2m) to bench-fodder will probably have given him the extra cash to get Salah if he wants – or Sadio Mané (£10.3m), who Falah currently doesn’t have.

That would allow Adam to start both Ryan Fraser (£6.3m) and Callum Wilson (£6.8m) against Crystal Palace’s out-of-sorts defence on the final day of the season.

How Falah got on in Gameweek 37

That’s an exciting attacking double-up that Falah owns neither of, although he has also done two transfers as of Friday night too, admittedly for a four-point hit.

Adam’s other exposure after Gameweek 37 is the fact he does not own Aguero.

The Manchester City striker may be a little out of form, just one goal in his last six matches, but he remains a highly-owned figure.

This could be who Adam pursued with his two free transfers, as the money gained from downgrading Son may have helped him upgrade Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m).

However, despite all of these potential avenues for Falah to catch up with Adam, it really would take something utterly spectacular from the world number two to stop the FPL title heading down under to New Zealand on Sunday.

    Is Doherty to Trent worth -4?

      Barely

    Any changes needed here? I’ve taken one hit.

    Guaita
    Robbo TAA AWB

    Top 10 midfielder transfer combinations across FPL:

    1 Son > Pogba (8.8%)
    2 Son > Bernardo Silva (4.1%)
    3 Son > Redmond (2.9%)
    4 Robertson > Alexander-Arnold (2.3%)
    5 Son > Sterling (2.1%)
    6 Son > Fraser (2.0%)

    Do you guys think Fraser and Bernardo Silva are better Son replacements than Lucas Moura given this information above?
    As I already have Pogba and Sterling looking to get someone who has the potential to haul...give me your suggestions and help a brother get back into top 1000 FPL.

    1. Totti
      • 2 Years

      son-> lucas moura?

      1. Pinky and De Bruyne
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Lucas Moura was unreal against Ajax

        1. Totti
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          and against huddersfield when he scored hatrick as well was also unreal?

    2. Balls of Steel

      Everton defence won't conceed many tomorrow can see a 1-1 draw here

  4. Espen8
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Redmond, Mili or Fraser?

    1. scubasmithy
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I have the exact same dilemma, wasn't even considering Mili to be honest... Now you have it worse lol

    2. scubasmithy
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      The waiting became torture, so I went with Fraser in the end. Redmond could be awesome but let's be honest 8 games out of 10 he couldn't hit a cows @rse with a banjo. Fraser has consistently delivered, is up against a makeshift defence and everyone seems to be going Redmond

    Would you do Jota to Fraser with this team?

    Lloris
    Trent Robertson* Digne
    Mane Sterling Jota Redmond
    Aguero Vardy Jiminez
    (Ryan, Valery, Hojbjerg, Doherty) 0.0m itb

    1. All Out of Mounie
      • 1 Year

      I see Salah starting.. get rid of Son for eg. Pogba.

  13. the Penman

    1 month, 6 days ago

    Ha, I didn’t realise Shane Duffy was an Everton fan and former youth player for them. Mixed loyalties on the final day? He claims not, but...

    1. All Out of Mounie

      So city will score 6 gls?

  14. The_Fish
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 6 days ago

    7 11 2 6 9 9 12 - If that was Sterling or Aguero with those returns you'd definitely be wanting to captain them this week.

    Captain Laporte... I'm doing it

    1. All Out of Mounie
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Good pick.. not for me.

    2. AuFeld
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Logical. BHA have the lowest xG when considering the last four home matches and second lowest xG over the last four.

  15. iyiy
    1 month, 6 days ago

    A) Redmond and Vardy

    B) Pogba and Wilson

    C) Redmond, Vardy. Jimenez out, Wilson in - 4

  17. Max City
    • 2 Years

    Is Martial, Son, Firmino >> Sterling, Wilson, Fraser (-4) a good move?

    That'll give me

    Ederson
    TAA Laporte Doherty (Duffy Yoshida*)

    Mane Eriksen Doucoure Sterling Fraser
    Jimenez Vardy Wilson

    1. Hulk Smash

      Yes for me

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good moves

    3. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 8 Years

      Definitely. You have three non-starters there, all of high price

  18. Dosh
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    A. Kompany + Redmond
    B. Laporte + Henderson/Sissoko/5.3mid

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      A

  19. Benditlike
    • 4 Years

    Hazard, Fraser or Redmond??

    1. Totti
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      will hazard start?
      i think not

  20. NoWayJose
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Aside from Aguero, Mane, Sterling and Salah (all of whom I own), not limited to price or position - who do you think will be the highest point scorer in gw38.

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Someone random.

    2. Hazardous Matarial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Long or pogba

      1. NoWayJose
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Im struggling to see why there's so much faith in Pogba, honestly. 6 open play goals all season, no form for player or team. It's just fixture + on pens?

    3. HMC
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      One from each position:
      Ryan (wishful thinking), Trent, Siggy, Deeney

      1. NoWayJose
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Oh that's interesting!

    4. GreenShark1
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Fraser or Wilson.

  21. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Scout picks been?

    1. Hazardous Matarial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      And gone

  22. Totti
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    son and vertonghen to:

    A) moura and laporte
    B) bernardo silva and VVD ( already owning arnold )
    C) other suggestion

  23. kuzser
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Best move this week to win a ML (3 points behind my rival atm)?
    A. Son Jimmi-> Sterling Long for -4
    B. Son-> pogba
    C. Son-> bilva
    D. doherty->laporte and play 4defs

    His team:
    Ederson

    Who do you prefer between

    B) Mane

    2) Redmond

    4. AuFeld
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      B1. Vardy is in form, but CHE aren't exactly push-overs. Mane's home form is very appealing. Redmond has the stats, but has issues delivering the goods. Fraser has the stats, delivers the points, and should be up against Joel Ward if he's lined-up on the right flank again.

      1. Tshelby
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Thanks for the replies! Something to think about

  25. Melvin Udall
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Brought in Redmond. Why do I regret it.

    Now feel any one of Fraser, Babel, Moura, Ali, Townsend and Tielmans will all score more.

    I am looking at a 2 pointer aren't I?

    1. iyiy
      1 month, 6 days ago

      He has a really high XG recently. He's already got a goal and assist away to Huddersfield. Huddersfield are awful. He's a good pick.

      1. AuFeld
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        1.58 over his last four isn't exactly 'really high' imo. For comparison, Wilson has a 2.98.

    2. In Bale We Trust
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Redmond imo has to be the most explosive option out of those. He’s worth a punt

      1. Melvin Udall
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Babel and Frasers form in the last 4 is better than Redmonds. I am relying on the fixture for a return IMO.

    3. FPL Pillars
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      He’s a Southampton midfielder. Expectation should be limited. Will blank more then return.

    4. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I’m captaining him

  26. Sid07
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Have 2ft
    1) son + Jimi to Salah + long
    2) son + Jimi to Pogba + vardy
    3) Doherty + son to Robertson + pogba

  27. United10
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    What to do here
    a) Son & Jimenez out for Aguero (C) & 4.6m -4
    b) Son to B.Silva and Mane(C)

  28. Blanka
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Can Kompany cover Laporte? Can't afford the latter, but need a defensive City shield!

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Laporte will be a 6 pointer this weekend with the City attackers hauling and returning the bonus points!
