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.

    Thinking of doing these transfers for free.....Are they worth doing?

    Bruno & DCL >>> Mane & Antonio

    Current Team::

    Martinez
    TAA / Rudiger / Dallas
    Salah / Bruno** / Raph / Greenwood
    Kane / Bamford / DCL**

    Bench:: Forster / Shaw / Coufal / El Ghazi

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Moves look perfect on paper.

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        This GW37 has been a disaster for my rank, really need this team to fire me into the top 30k at least...

    2. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Yes, perfect transfers imo

    3. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Your starting XI are the same as mine. Wish I had 2 FTs
      Do you fancy Greenwood to start?

      If you only had one FT which move would you prioritise?

      Maybe put Coufal ahead of Shaw on the bench?

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Yeah, Greenwood may be the only one certain to start...
        I will finalize the benching by Sunday, we may get some team leaks or Infos.

  4. The Mighty Whites
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Any Arsenal fans know why Pepe didn't play v Chelsea?

  5. Rolls-Royce
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Looking for some help folks,

    Defence for GW 38:

    Dallas Rudiger Stones (Holding Digne)

    Would you take a hit to bring in one of TAA or Robbo for the final GW?

    1. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I wouldnt unless you're chasing serious numbers

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        The thing is, most people in my ML around me already have TAA, so basically it's about damage limitation.

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I'd take a hit for Trent probably.

    3. FPL ElasticO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Yeah TAA could get some joy on his side (Palace has conceded most chances from their left side, i.e, LIV right & they also conceded most headed goals this season) So, assist potential is high for TAA

  6. Joey Tribbiani
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Last week differentials?
    Tierney, Rodrigo, Wood, anyone else?

    1. dansully3
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Robbo

    2. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Defenders - Tierney, Reece James

      Midfielders - Foden, Mahrez, Torres, Pulisic, Havertz (if confirmed starting)

      Forwards - I guess the ones you've mentioned. Depends how different you need to go. Bamford and Antonio aren't exactly 80-90% owned in the top 10k!

    3. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Pepe

  7. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Like many i'm faced with a final day dilemma!

    I'm 2 points behind, with Triple captain to go. My rival has Mane and i'm confident he will captain him, should i bring Mane in for Son to cover him and then TC Salah (rival doesn't have Salah)

    Just thinking it minimizes his likely captain choice whilst still giving me a triple on someone i don't think he'll have.

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Sound reasoning.

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      If you can bring Mane in without a hit, then yes, that all sounds sensible.

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        it would involve a hit unfortunately. options would be:
        A) Greenwood > 6.5m
        b) Vestegaard > 4.2 or below
        c) Fernadnes to Mane for no hit

        1. Pegboy
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          C. And as poster below suggests, if you're 100% sure he's captaining Mane, I'd probably TC him rather than Salah.

          1. ShaunGoater123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            4 months, 10 days ago

            ok cool, plenty to mull over.

            thanks for your thoughts, appreciate it

    3. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You've got it won!

    4. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      If you TC mane you snooker him

  8. No Professionals
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    bottomed

    Areola
    TAA Dallas Dunk Shaw
    Salah Bale Lingard Raphinha
    Kane Iheanacho

    Martinez Watkins Digne JWP
    1FT 1.6m

    tight in my ML, 19 points separates top 3.

    A) Attacking - Bale and JWP to Mane and Willock
    B) Cautious - Digne and Watkins to Robertson and Antonio (guy behind me has double pool defence and Antonio) - bench Dunk and Shaw

  9. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Gtg and how is the bench order ?

    Mendy
    Taa Robbo Dallas
    Willock Bruno lingard Raph (c)
    Kane bam ings

    Areola azpi coufal zaha

    1. andy85wsm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I'd probably have Zaha a bit further up the bench but otherwise yup!

    2. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      probably a stronger squad than you would want at this stage!

  10. andy85wsm
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    17 points off the top 1k with a fairly template team...

    Mane is my biggest differential and I'll probably do Son or Lingard to a Man city or Chelsea mid.

    Not sure it's enough to make up 17 points unfortunately without switching captain to one of them. Don't want to blow my best ever finish though!

    Lots of decisions before Sunday...

    1. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Congrats. Sounds like a terrific season. Enjoy the last GW

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Gl Andy thanks for all the videos

    3. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Well done Andy

    4. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Well done, great season.
      I'm gonna do just 1FT and I'm sure it's not a popular one, but I have a feeling it may pay off; Greenwood to Pepe.

    5. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Son to Torres would be my suggestion

    6. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Great season and thanks for all the content. I am thinking of getting a Chelsea mid too. Don't know which one though!

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        That's exactly why I'm not getting a Chelsea mid

        1. andy85wsm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          Yeah this is probably fair.

          I think for me a lot comes down to early team sheets. If we don't get those I play safe.

  11. MIGHTY JOE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Leno
    Rudiger Coufal Dallas
    Son Salah (C) Bruno Greenwood
    Kane Wood Bamford

    Forster JWP Shaw Godfrey.

    1 FT 0 ITB.

    A) Greenwood -> Raphinha
    B) Greenwood -> Willock

    1. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Lose Bruno

      1. MIGHTY JOE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        For what? Nothing interesting for max 11 mill

        1. MIGHTY JOE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          Or do you just think Greenwood has bigger chance of getting minutes last GW?

          1. FCSB
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 10 days ago

            This... I could be wrong but majority will say Greenwood more chance than Bruno

            Bruno is nailed for EL final, Greenwood a good chance but more competition

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          For Mane or KDB

  12. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Who to transfer out:

    A) Greenwood - for Raph or Willock or someone like that
    b) DCL for....Bamford maybe?

    1. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      B

    2. Kitman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I'd keep Greenwood - he's got a decent chance of starting this week
      DCL for Bamford is decent

  13. OptimusBlack
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Martinez
    TAA Digne Dallas
    Salah © Son Willock Zaha
    Watkins Kane Bamford
    Areola ( JWP - Konsa - Dunk)
    If You have 2 FT
    What would they be ?

  14. Phlajo
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Advice here?

    Took ML lead last GW, and now having a 23 point lead (2 rivals exactly 23 points behind).

    I'll do Bruno -> Mane, but could also do Alioski -> Dallas for a hit. Only considering Dallas for a hit because both rivals own him. Worth it?

  15. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Has anyone considered whether Hernandez might get a start for Leeds at the weekend as it's his final game in front of a home crowd? Not sure who would make way, Harrison pershaps?

    1. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I'm reluctant to bring in Raph this week (but probably will) as I don't trust Bielsa not to radically mix up the team.

  16. FCSB
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Dallas
    Salah Greenwood Son Lingard
    Kane Bamford DCL

    Forster JWP Holding Coleman

    2FT, 1.0 itb

    Early thoughts on best option:

    1. Son + DCL >> Mane + Iheanacho
    2. Son + DCL >> Raphinha / Torres + Antonio

    Thanks

  17. Kitman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Last game of season -

    Robertson or Mane?

    1. MMN
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Hmm ... Mane probably.

    2. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Just asked the same question more or less. If it helps I don’t think Liverpool keep a clean sheet, benteke will murder those cbs

      1. No Professionals
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        How Benteke's stock has risen! Wood is a similarly physical striker and they about coped.

        Agree they'll concede, but I think Zaha is the difference.

      2. Pegboy
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        I feel Phillips and Williams (thought a little lightweight) are made for big strikers. It's the nippy ones with a bit of movement I'd worry about. I'd probably stick Zaha upfront if I was Roy.

  18. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    7 point ML lead. I need some advice

    My team
    Martinez
    Robbo, taa*, Dallas*, Rudi*, shaw
    Salah*, Lingard*, son, jwp, Greenwood
    DCL, Kane*, bamford
    (* are co owned)

    Opponents differentials
    Ederson, digne, Raphina, Antonio

    Do I

    A. Block him with DCL & Greenwood > Antonio/nacho > Raphina
    B. Attack with Robbo & Greenwood > 3.8 def & mane

    1. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      A. Robbo is a good option (and a differential too).

  19. MMN
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Harrison or Raph?
    Salah or Mane?

    1. gellinmagellan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Raph
      Salah

  20. Bad Stoob
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Have AWB, Bruno and Greenwood, all of whom might get rested for GW38. I’m leading two ML by 4pts. Nearest rivals have 2 FT. Are hits worth it at this late stage? I would imagine one will bring in Antonio and Harrison or similar.

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I’d try to avoid the hit

    2. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Just ship Bruno and one other. I'd probably keep Greenwood.

  21. Drogo
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    12 points behind #1 place.

    We both have Salah, TAA, Watkins, Greenwood, Nacho, Dallas.

    He has Bruno, I got Son.

    I need a real differential captain, any ideas? Could drop Salah, but for whom? or should I transfer in Wood and put him as captain?

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Dropping Salah is a differential, in the wrong way. But a gamble on Mané(c) could pay off. Safer to get Wood , or Greenwood to likes of Willock, Raphina, Harrison, Pepe, Lingard. Your rival will likely look at similar options

      1. Drogo
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Yea, maybe Woods(c), or do something really crazy and go Salah -> Bale (c)

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          Capping Bale is a step too far imho

    2. Pegboy

      In your situation, I would be tempted by Salah>Mane(c) if you've only got 1FT.

      1. Drogo
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Correct. Worried about play-time for Mane though. Salah will for sure play since he wants the golden boot. But, perhaps going Salah to Mane(c) is better than going Salah to Bale (c). The prizemoney is for first place, so it doesnt matter if the gamble doesn't work out 🙂

    Mendy Forster
    Coleman TAA Rudiger Holding Shaw
    Salah Raph Son Lingard Bruno
    DCL Bamford Vydra

    1 FT 3.3 ITB

    A) Vydra > Antonio
    B) Son > Mane
    C) DCL > Vardy
    D) DCL > Antonio, Son > Mane for -4
    E) Bruno > Mane (play Son)

      E if we are sure Bruno won't play.
      A otherwise.

    Which Chelsea defender can prove to be the best differential pick?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years

      Chilwell

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

        Wow! Meant midfielder. Don't know why I wrote defender!

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          hahaha Havertz (if not injured) then Mount

            Thanks. Considering Havertz too. Will wait for the news.

    ahead in mini league but not by much

    players i have who seem either likley not to play or bad fixtures are
    SHAW
    COLEMAN
    JOTA
    FERNANDES
    DCL

    is it ever worth taking a -4 when leading going into last game?

    1. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      It is worth it to get in a key high-ceiling player if you plan to captain them as the -4 has only one week to pay off.

      I'd wait on team news and then only take a hit if the players are v likely to not play

    in order who is best transfer options IN for this week if money no issue

    A) TAA
    B) DALLAS
    C) MANE
    D) TORRES
    E) BAMFORD

        Interesting you have Mane first and Bamford last, two players I'm looking to bring in. What's your thinking behind that

        1. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 10 days ago

          Didn't put too much thinking into this admittedly, I guess Bamford might be ahead of Torres. I had Bamford for a long barren run before his latest purple patch, just doesn't seem to me he ca be trusted to deliver regular returns

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Wow that's difficult. Torres would be last in my list. Everton away form has been really good.

    Leading by 7 in mini-league, NEED YOUR HELP!

    Second has benchboost. Do I target hauls or block their players?

    1FT
    £0.4m ITB

    My team:

    Mendy (Pickford)
    TAA, Dallas, Holding (Shaw, Fofana)
    Salah, Mount, Mahrez,

    1. Booked4Dissent

      I’d say you’re screwed mate, not least because you don’t have any attackers lol. You’ll need some lucky hauls and great captaincy to beat a bench boost. Saying that, I only got 1 point on bench boost after the international break and there will probably be as much rotation in GW 38. Good luck

    2. gmando2011

      any forwards?

    My team:

    DCL, Antonio, Watkins

    Their team:

    Any help appreciated! Thinking Mane and Willock for Son & McTominay.

      This could go your way. They have multiple players likely to be benched. Your moves seem pretty good to me.

      1. CJ_Wright
        4 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers mate, is Mahrez playing just a spin of the roulette wheel I guess?

        1. Booked4Dissent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 10 days ago

          Haha yeh anybody’s guess. I do think Mahrez is in the 1st team for UCL final, but that’s a whole 6 days later. He could get minutes and can easily return as a sub. I’m defending 20 point ML lead so in same scenario as you. Best of luck

            4 months, 10 days ago

            Thanks, best of luck mate

          4 months, 10 days ago

          id say you have better DEF he has better attacking players

          if it were me i'd probably take a -4 and get Mahrez & DCL out - maybe 1 transfer as high ceiling player then the other one to cover LEEDS somehow

          1. CJ_Wright
            4 months, 10 days ago

            Reckon DCL -> Rodrigo is trying to be too cute? Could just go bamford to block

            1. gmando2011
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              too risky if you are leading

  28. gmando2011
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    all rivals have TAA and i have phillips - should i make the transfer or use it to upgrade someone else in my team?

    1. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Probably somewhere else, but depends on options.

  29. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 10 days ago

    Which transfer do you think is the priority:

    A: Bruno to Mane
    B: DCL to Antonio

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      A

  30. Ohh1454

    Best differential mid this week ? Looking at raph, Torres, pulisic/havertz

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 10 days ago

      I originally suggest Torres but Everton are away to City and their away form has been really good. Defensively well organised

    2. CJ_Wright
      4 months, 10 days ago

      Rodrigo is a shout. Chris Wood too
