Grealish returns, Willock injury latest and the race for seventh: Gameweek 37 notes

Our round-up of Wednesday’s Premier League action begins with the three early kick-offs.

A win for Everton and a defeat for Tottenham Hotspur kept things interesting in the race for seventh, with the team finishing in that position qualifying for the UEFA Europa Conference League play-off round.

Providing the clubs in contention actually want to qualify for the new tertiary tournament and don’t view it with the same disdain they did the Intertoto Cup, it should ensure Spurs, Everton and Arsenal (who beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday) are near enough full strength in Gameweek 38.

Spurs (and with a massive goal swing, Everton) could still overhaul West Ham United in sixth place on the final day, so Fantasy managers should still be able to call upon their key assets from these clubs on Sunday amid the possible end-of-season rotation elsewhere.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1-2 ASTON VILLA

Ollie Watkins‘ (£6.4m) remarkably consistent run of FPL form continued in north London, with the Aston Villa striker notching his 23rd attacking return of the season.

He has blanked in only one of his last eight appearances, a run that coincides with him racking up the most penalty box touches in the division.

He registered six shots in the area against the Lilywhites, only one fewer than Spurs managed as a whole.

The galvanizing effect of the return of Jack Grealish (£7.5m) can’t be underestimated, with Villa looking more like the side we saw in the first half of the campaign.

A home fixture against a defensively sound Chelsea is hardly in his favour but Grealish as a Gameweek 38 punt would otherwise be worth exploring.

As for Spurs, they might have ‘something to play for’ on the final day, but you’d never tell by Wednesday’s flat display.

It was a bad day all round for their Fantasy assets, with an anonymous Son Heung-min (£9.7m) not producing a single shot or key pass, Gareth Bale (£9.2m) benched due to the demands of the swift fixture turnaround and Harry Kane (£11.9m) perhaps trying too hard on what may have been his farewell appearance in front of the north London faithful.

It’s just one goal in four Gameweeks for Kane but the chances keep coming, with only Christian Benteke (£5.5m) having had more shots among FPL forwards in that time.

Sergio Reguilon (£5.6m) had a topsy-turvy evening, claiming the assist for Steven Bergwijn‘s (£7.0m) strike before scoring a comical own-goal to bring Villa level.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 1-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

Joe Willock (£4.8m) scored for the sixth straight match as Newcastle United edged out Sheffield United in the final game of the season at St James’ Park.

His Fantasy Premier League ownership has increased almost tenfold in the last two Gameweeks and he is the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer from Gameweek 30 onwards, despite starting just three matches in that time.

Already among the top five most-bought FPL midfielders of Gameweek 38, there was a late scare in the win over the Blades when he walked gingerly from the pitch.

There was, thankfully, positive news on Willock from Steve Bruce at full-time – but less encouraging updates on fellow injury victims Joelinton (£5.7m), Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.2m) and Martin Dubravka (£4.8m):

Joelinton has a knock. Saint-Maximin, we don’t know yet if it’s a calf injury or whether it’s just a kick as well so we’ll see how he is. Dubravka has a bit of a hamstring but I don’t think there’s anything too bad. Joe Willock is just fatigued.

Fulham await Newcastle in Gameweek 38 and there is encouragement for Willock’s new and existing owners in the fact that the Cottagers are without a clean sheet in their last nine matches, conceding 18 goals in that time.

The Mapgies’ shut-out on Wednesday was, as it happens, their first since Gameweek 27 and only their second on Tyneside in 2020/21.

EVERTON 1-0 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Everton kept up the pressure on Spurs as they defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0.

Richarlison (£7.8m) ended a ten-game goal drought with the game’s only goal, nodding in a Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) corner.

But it’s Everton’s defence that has caught the eye over the last few months from a Fantasy perspective.

The Toffees have registered eight clean sheets from Gameweek 25 onwards, which is the best record in the division.

It’s on the road where they have really excelled, with six shut-outs in their last seven fixtures away from Goodison Park.

That good form on their travels will be put to the test in Gameweek 38 but a match at the Etihad mightn’t be all that daunting, with Manchester City likely to have one eye on their upcoming UEFA Champions League final clash with Chelsea.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) has blanked against the might of Wolves and Sheffield United in consecutive Gameweeks but perhaps there could be some belated, unexpected joy at a mind-elsewhere Manchester City, who have shipped eight goals in their last three matches.

James Rodriguez (£7.7m) missed out against Wolves, with Carlo Ancelotti explaining:

James is out because he was a little bit tired. He didn’t play, he was out, then he played against Sheffield, we prefer not to take a risk.

      Guys I took over 200 pts hits this season. I had a bad start & went hits crazy, I took hits like a wild animal. Around 1.4m in rank now from 6m. It’s been a terrible fpl season 🙁

      I usually finish in the top 1m & top 40k. The hits affected my rank definitely but it also helped in a way.

      Gotta start well next season

        It's just a game.
        Enjoy it.
        Unless you win something you are always losing everything IMO 🙂

        So don't Worry. Enjoy. We have plenty of other things to worry about in real life 😎

        Age old saying, 'Hits only if deemed absolutely necessary'

        I have been at the receiving end too. The hits looks so good until the particular game ends.

        Cheer up lad! Onto the next!!

          Terrible GW

          First red arrow since GW 21! And what a drop.

          Shaw was a terrible choice the last few game weeks.

            2 months, 12 days ago

            One of the few things I got right that WC was taking Shaw out.
            Been a pretty big fall from where he was.

          What move looks best for last gw ?

          Mendy
          TAA Holding Digne
          Salah(C) Son Bale Lingard
          DCL Kane Bamford

          Forster ESR Shaw Konsa

          A. Digne>Dallas
          B. Digne and DCL > Dallas and Antonio/iheanacho -4
          C. Son and Bale > Mane and Raphinha -4
          D. DCL>Antonio/Iheanacho

          1. RogDog_jimmy

            I like C.

              • 11 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              would mean playing DCL and digne against city though but yeah maybe all 4 moves for a minus 12 haha

              1. RogDog_jimmy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 12 days ago

                City have let in 8 goals in three games!
                They’re playing their b-team at best.
                Everton are awesome away from home.

                Digne I’m benching because I expect goals. But DCL has a good shout for returns I think.

                1. drughi
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  cheers yeah wouldnt be surprised if DCL scores against city after blanking against sheffield and wolves

          2. House Frey Wedding Planner
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Can you do Bale + DCL for Mane + Antonio?

            Think you deffo need to lose one of your Spurs midfielders and one Everton player

            1. drughi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              no I cant

          A must-win match this weekend. Final round of the FFS HU league. Sitting in 6th, but facing a team that hasn't been active since December. Not going to finish anywhere of note, but that 5th slot has meaning. The fans deserve it after all they've been through this season.

        10. fr3d
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          To those who are confused about the Man Utd XI. They will be very similar to the Leicester game

          1. House Frey Wedding Planner
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I wouldn't bother bringing in anyone from either Manc club.

            Too much guesswork and risk predicting their line ups

          2. RogDog_jimmy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 12 days ago

            That’s what I figure. But also probably Greenwood resting so Ole has a choice for the final.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Thinking last trade Son to any mid same price or cheaper. Pepe? He should start?

          Morning dzz, what moves would you recommend here? have 1.3m itb. I am not expecting the united players* to start so need to have strong bench

          Mendy
          Taa Rudi Holding -- Digne (mci) Shaw*
          Salah Raphinha Lingard Bruno* Greenwood*
          Kane Antonio -- Davis

          A: Bruno >> Mane and get digne off bench
          B: Bruno + Shaw >> Mane + Dallas (-4)..he is the only def worth a hit
          C: Bruno + Davis >> Son + Bamford (-4)
          D: Something else

          1. Well you know, Triffic

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Martinez.
          TAA, Shaw, Digne, Dallas.
          Salah, Lingard, Mahrez, Greenwood.
          Kane, DCL.
          Steer, Watkins, Burn, Jota.
          2ft, 0.4m ITB.

          1. Digne + DCL -> Cresswell/ 5.9m + Antonio.
          2. Digne + Jota + DCL + Robbo + Raphinha + Antonio (-).
          3. Something else.

          1. Well you know, Triffic

            Wait on Jota fitness news

            1. Sz21
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Yeah- but it is very unlikely we get clear news on whether Jota starts before the deadline.

              Even if Klopp says he is fine- is he then automatically a keep and starter? Not so sure..

        15. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Glad to see Man Utd finally being linked with Danny Ings - would be a great signing for them from a squad perspective

          Contract nearly expired so he’d be dirt cheap & guarantees goals

          Fitness has been much improved the last couple seasons too, and were he to break down, the reduced fee softens that blow a bit

          If it’s Kane for 150m or Ings for 20m I’d have Ings every time

          Makes sense from all angles

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Definitely agree with your last point, 100%.

          2. LegendMoon
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I agree with this , trouble is whenever United are involved the price doubles so they’d want at least 40m for him

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              He can sign an agreement for free in just over 6 months so there won’t be anything more than 15-20m involved

              Southampton are over a barrel with him

          3. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            For a squad player, wouldnt it be better to have a fit guy?

            They already have Cavani. Having Ings might create an issue at some stage.

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              I think he’d be perfect - there wouldn’t be the pressure on him to play 38 league games a season which should in turn help with his fitness issues

              And neither Ings nor Cavani really stand in the way of Greenwood developing into a centre forward in the same way that Kane would

        16. Merlinho
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          I have a 19 point lead to protect in my cash league.

          I have Lingard, Bruno, Antonio, Rudiger

          They have Bale, Greenwood, Bamford, AWB

          Most other players the same. How do i protect my league with 1 FT - do I get in Bamford for Antonio, or attack by bringing in Bamford for Kane, or something else?

          1. Ruth_NZ
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            Get rid of Bruno. Mané if you can afford him or Bale if you really want to block (though you don't need to).

        17. aapoman
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 12 days ago

          2ft and 0.0itb. How would these transfer look? Bruno and Digne -> Mane and Cresswell. Would leave me with:

          Henderson
          Cresswell Phillips Dallas AWB
          Salah Mane Son Lingz
          Kane Bamford

          Martinez; Saka, Konsa, Brewster

          1. Well you know, Triffic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            AWB and Henderson may not start

        18. DavvaMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 12 days ago

          Morning

          Do you think these are good moves?

          A. DCL > Bamford or Antonio
          B. Son > Mane - 4

          This would mean a triple up on Leeds and Liverpool

          Thanks

          1. aapoman
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 12 days ago

            I would do A with Bamford

            I think both are good moves.

            A triple up on both Leeds and Pool shouldn't be a bad thing with their fixtures.

            I think you make the - 4 with those moves.

              Should I pull the trigger now, concerned about price risers, as I have exact money for those transfers!

          Best option for final gameweek?

          A) Son + Robertson

          B) Mane + Dunk

          Happy days, only 3 more days and the worst PL season in recent memory is over. And the most boring FPL season to date, drip fed games one at a time and no fans has been stagnant.

            It has been one to forget for a lot of us. Hopefully next season with fans back and a more normal schedule, it can be as enjoyable as it used to be.

              Agreed pal. Dont know how people can look forward to Euro fantasy after this season

              Shaw Bruno and Dias 99% won’t play.
              So maybe Dias > TAA (or Robbo of that don’t work).

              Sat at 199k OR. I’ll be glad when this season is done. Which differential player can I captain to halve my rank in GW38 to sneak into the top 100k? 🙂

                Unfortunately i doubt you’ll sneak into top 100K from there 🙁

                  44 points is doable if I captain a player who hails big....I’m staying positive lol

                You got to make up 44 points.
                So maybe a midfielder who can hat trick.
                Dan James.
                Torres
                Aubameyang

                  I was thinking Mane. But he just doesn’t look quite on it to me.

                    Never really got this logic

                    How many hauls are you ruling out by only selecting players who scored big in their previous game or two?

                    1. HollywoodXI
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 7 Years
                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      Mane has been poor this season no? He has three double digit returns all season.

                      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

                        • 11 Years
                        2 months, 12 days ago

                        Does being poor this season mean he can’t score big vs Crystal Palace at home though? (How did he do last time out against them?)

                        And as “poor” as he’s been this season - he’s been “better” than the likes of Torres & Pepe who are now popping up - because they scored last week...

                        It’s just weird logic how last weeks returns carry such a gravitational pull on here

                          I haven’t mentioned last weeks punts? Not have i mentioned any players in my post? Chill out dude lol

                        He doesn’t need to be good for a season though he just needs to be good for a game against Crystal Palace at home

              Defending a 15 point ML lead to win £400. Should I do:

                Yes I'm looking at him or Pepe. Not sure if City will click without Foden, KDB and Gundo though.

                wouldnt bother getting Antonio as you have Lingz, go for Bam/Wood/Firmino have fun

                  Cheers. So nothing for a hit, you say?

                  Just DCL to someone from the suggested above?

                  1. Cojones of Destiny

                    dont know if you are chasing in ML or going for OR, great team you've got there I'd do DCL to Bam and play Nacho if I were you, bench one of Willock/Green GL mate

                    1. Neo-Viper
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 12 days ago

                      Chasing in my MCL. OR don't matter no more. Only 2nd by 20 points and if I do take a hit it will be 24 at the start.

                      With 10k fans back at Anfield, I think there will be goals galore there. don't you?

                      But i really like your suggestion of Bamford though. Plus if that happens, I would start Greenwood over Nachp.Correct?

                      1. Cojones of Destiny
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 12 days ago

                        if chasing ML it makes even easier just go for a player he (your rival) dont have in one or two positions eg if he doesnt have Bam go for him etc gl

            11. Donny_Rover
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 12 days ago

              Antonio (c) and Lingard assist meant that my ML rival cut my lead to a nerve-jangling 14 points. Any obvious changes here?

              Pickford
              TAA Coufal Dallas Rudiger
              Salah (c) Son Mahrez Raphinha
              Kane Antonio
              Forster, Shaw, Nacho, Siggy

              I’m thinking Son to Mane. Bamford my biggest ML concern but to bring him in would be a -4 and not sure who I’d drop from the team. Also not happy with the keeper but don’t think anyone is worth a -4.

              1. RogDog_jimmy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 12 days ago

                Gotta assume Mahrez don’t start.
                I’d want Iheanacho on the pitch.
                Son to Mané seems fun.

                You have 2x Leeds - if Bamford goes off maybe they get a little piece as well.

                1. Donny_Rover
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 12 days ago

                  Yeah fair point about Mahrez. Just done a bit of a deeper dig and if I do Son & Nacho to Bamford & Mane it’ll be Coufal, Mane, Rudiger & Pickford/Forster +10 points vs Dummett, Lingard, Son & Ederson (pending his changes). I’d be pretty confident with that.

                  I’m 4pts ahead of rival. Have 1FT. He has Martinez. Read Meslier won’t play. I was thinking of doing -4 for to have playing keeper and xchange Bruno for Mane.

              Worst GW of the season for me at the worst possible time. Was 105th going into it and 1st in the UAE.

              I'm now 199th and 15 points behind in UAE league.

              Need a differential captain:

              Digne and DCL to Alioski and Firmino (c) for -4?

              Leader has Bamford and Antonio so avoiding them.

                  Don't have the funds and I don't really fancy City this weekend.

                Ah bad luck. Alioski seems pointless but I assume your benching.
                Firmino is interesting.
                What about Martial if he’s fit?

                  United will put out their reserves can see them getting beat.

                  Alioski surely the best punt at 4.5 or less?

                Get Firmino, Pepe, and Torres - they all scored in the last week or two

                  I was actually considering getting Pepe and capping him lol...

                  I want to go for a really obscure captain.
