Scout Notes

How a dramatic Gameweek 38 played out in FPL

What a day of football we had on Sunday, with drama at both ends of the Premier League table.

Rather than bombard you with the usual Scout Notes (let’s be honest, any takeaways from Gameweek 38 will be long forgotten by August), we instead bring you this briefer game-by-game round-up of the final day.

By Tom Freeman and Neale Rigg

MANCHESTER CITY 3-2 ASTON VILLA

Manchester City retained their Premier League crown by coming from two goals down to beat Aston Villa, although there was scant reward for owners of the Citizens’ players in FPL. Only Kevin De Bruyne (£12.1m) of the players owned by more than 1% of the top 10k delivered anything more than appearance points on Sunday; the Belgian’s assist took him to 21 attacking returns in his last 20 starts. As for Villa, their record of having not beaten any top-seven club under Steven Gerrard still stands but neither Liverpool nor City have defeated the Villans by more than one goal this season. With a few more decent acquisitions and a full pre-season under their belt, they will be ones to watch next year. Matty Cash (£5.3m) is certainly someone who has prospered under the current regime: his goal at the Etihad made it six attacking returns in 27 appearances since Dean Smith departed, on top of nine clean sheets.

LIVERPOOL 3-1 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) made sure that this was his best-ever season for FPL points since 2017/18 with a goal off the bench in Sunday’s ultimately futile 3-1 win over Wolves. That was only the Egyptian’s fourth non-penalty goal in 15 post-AFCON appearances and it’ll be interesting to see just how ‘essential’ FPL managers deem him come Gameweek 1 of 2022/23, with the premium pool set to be even bigger thanks the addition of Erling Haaland. Six points was a modest reward for the 3.2% of managers (top 10k ownership figures) who kept hold of him but in truth, many of the Salah replacements – including goalscoring teammate Sadio Mane (£11.8m) – outscored him in Gameweek 38. Despite the loss of a clean sheet due to Pedro Neto’s (£6.2m) goal, Joel Matip (£5.3m) finished 2021/22 as the best-value player in FPL based on points per million. His assist for Salah’s strike meant that he ended the campaign having averaged 5.5 points per match, a figure beaten by just four other defenders.

NORWICH CITY 0-5 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Salah ended up with only a share of the Golden Boot as Son Heung-min‘s (£11.2m) brace in Spurs’ comfortable win at Norwich meant that the South Korean winger and FPL’s leading points scorer ended 2021/22 tied on 23 Premier League goals. What an achievement this was for Son given that not one of his strikes was a penalty, and we now await the inevitable starting price rise following his 258-point campaign. Son, the most-owned and most-captained player in the top 10k in Gameweek 38, had to take a back seat for much of Sunday’s contest as Dejan Kulusevski (£6.3m) and Harry Kane (£12.5m) ran up double-digit hauls. Kulusevski will be an interesting proposition next season if Son is priced out of our grasp: since the Swede made his full debut in Gameweek 26, Spurs’ front three are first, second and third for FPL points among players.

ARSENAL 5-1 EVERTON

Arsenal recorded a comfortable 5-1 win over a much-changed Everton side missing the likes of Richarlison (£7.6m) on Sunday, but had to settle for a fifth-place finish following Tottenham Hotspur’s win. Gabriel Martinelli (£5.3m) surprisingly stepped up ahead of Bukayo Saka (£6.7m) to convert a first-half penalty, before goals from Eddie Nketiah (£5.7m), Cedric Soares (£4.2m), Gabriel Magalhaes (£5.3m) and Martin Odegaard (£5.6m) sealed the win. As a result, the Gunners will compete in next season’s Europa League and will have to cope with a more demanding Thursday-Sunday-Thursday schedule. Meanwhile, after conceding another goal in Gameweek 38, the Gunners have now failed to keep a single clean sheet in each of their last 10 Premier League matches.

CHELSEA 2-1 WATFORD

Chelsea ended their 2021/22 campaign with a narrow win over already-relegated Watford at Stamford Bridge. Kai Havertz (£7.9m) put the hosts ahead before Ross Barkley (£5.2m) netted a Reece James (£6.5m) cross after Dan Gosling (£4.7m) had grabbed a late consolation for the visitors. Antonio Rudiger (£6.1m), meanwhile, signed off before his summer move to Real Madrid with a nine-pointer, courtesy of a rather fortunate clean sheet – plus maximum bonus – after he was withdrawn prior to Thomas Tuchel’s side conceding. Elsewhere, Ben Chilwell (£5.6m) came off the bench late on for the first time since rupturing his cruciate knee ligament in November, and is a name to look out for when next season’s FPL prices are revealed.

LEICESTER CITY 4-1 SOUTHAMPTON

James Maddison (£6.9m) scored for the fourth successive league match as an expected thrashing of Southampton eventually materialised. Maddison had blanked in 11 of his first 12 appearances of the season but in the subsequent 23 run-outs, he has delivered a phenomenal 22 attacking returns. Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) also continued his last-season purple patch with his sixth attacking return in four matches. While Vardy did suffer an injury-ravaged campaign, he still ended up as the best forward for points per start (5.9). Leicester being out of Europe next season will help alleviate any concerns over rotation and focus matters on the league; we saw the benefits of that with Arsenal for much of the year. As for sorry Southampton, who ended the season in relegation form, dead-ball whizz James Ward-Prowse (£6.4m) made it 10 goals for 2021/22 with a late penalty and ended up finishing over 50 FPL points clear of his nearest teammate.

BURNLEY 1-2 NEWCASTLE UNITED

Burnley’s six-season stay in the Premier League came to an end on Sunday after a 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at Turf Moor. The Clarets knew that victory would ensure survival, but a brace of goals from Callum Wilson (£7.1m) handed Eddie Howe’s side the win despite Maxwel Cornet’s (£5.8m) consolation. Sean Dyche was sacked in April with Burnley in the relegation zone, and despite interim manager Mike Jackson inspiring them to three successive wins after his appointment, they failed to win any of the final four games of 2021/22. As a result, they will join Watford and Norwich City in the Championship next season, both of whom were relegated earlier this month. The Magpies, meanwhile, are ones to watch next year, having earned 38 points in 2022 – a total exceeded by only Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

BRENTFORD 1-2 LEEDS UNITED

Leeds United clinched Premier League safety with Jack Harrison (£5.5m) netting an injury-time winner in a 2-1 victory over nine-man Brentford. After a nervy first half, Raphinha (£6.3m) converted a penalty before Thomas Frank’s side fought back and levelled through Sergi Canos (£5.5m). However, the Spaniard was booked for taking his shirt off celebrating, before then being shown a second yellow card shortly after for a foul, leaving his side with nine men after Kristoffer Ajer (£4.4m) had been forced off through injury (the Bees had already used their substitutions). Leeds were then able to capitalise via Harrison’s added-time winner, which means they avoid dropping to the Championship.

CRYSTAL PALACE 1-0 MANCHESTER UNITED

Crystal Palace ended the season on 12 clean sheets, a tally beaten only by the top five this season. It hasn’t been a fluke, either: only Manchester City have conceded fewer big chances than the Eagles in 2021/22. Wilfried Zaha (£6.9m) was Palace’s match-winner in their victory over a sorry Manchester United, taking his tally to 14 for the season – no midfielder outside of the ‘big six’ can match that. As for the Red Devils, the only positive from this dismal season is that their key assets will be cheaper in FPL next year. Let’s hope Erik ten Hag can revitalise a cut-price Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m), for example, after the Portuguese finished with a points-per-match average (4.2) inferior to 45 other players.

BRIGHTON 3-1 WEST HAM

West Ham United will play Europa Conference League football next season after a 3-1 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion on the final day. Michail Antonio (£7.3m) put the Hammers in front with a wonderful strike that found the top corner, but Graham Potter’s side hit back through Joel Veltman (£4.2m), Pascal Gross (£5.6m) and Danny Welbeck (£6.0m) goals. The latter has certainly finished the campaign strongly, too, with at least one attacking return in each of his last five appearances, while the Seagulls suffered defeat in just one of their final nine matches, a 3-0 loss to Manchester City in April.

        Though 65k finish nothing to brag about it still felt good to recover from a 1M+ OR at the halfway point this season (GW19).

        Like that kid who's not all that good but wins a most-improved certificate.

        1. kingcolesy
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Thats really good potato, I was 625k at gw15 to come in at 25k

          1. POTATO
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Great improvement yourself KingColesy.Yeah gw15 was at 1.2M+ OR.

    2. seewhyaxe
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I did. Just outside 2.5k.

      My gw38 goal was to finish with a green arrow and inside 2.5k. Didn’t achieve either lol

      1. POTATO
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        If you didn't finish with a green arrow then are you sure you finished at your highest OR for the season? Sounds like your OR was higher last week.

        1. seewhyaxe
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Oh that’s what the question was. I didn’t realise. Yea last gw was my highest then.

          I thought you meant in history

      Yes me. Slightly disappointed but reached 130k
      Just the 2 red arrows since GW19 where I was 450k. Didn't take advantage of the good weeks to really make the leap but plenty of learnings this season.

    4. MidTableFantasy

    Just finished the MOTD challenge. Rotten last day for me 😆

    Managed another top 10k finish, but given I had a higher rank back in December and have been in the top 1k, I've played a really poor 2nd half to the season. These covid blanks and doubles hit me hard. Anyway can't complain, I'd have taken that at the start 🙂

    It's been a pleasure everyone. I hope you all have a nice summer rest. I look forward the game releasing and starting my pre-season analysis - best part of the season for me 😆

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Honestly COVID hit season made the whole thing random from December onward ; addition of the second free hit, etc . . .honestly the luck factor this year was higher than ever.

      1. AARON-1
          1 month, 13 days ago

          How many game weeks were actually affected by Covid? Not very many. 5 or 6 I reckon. It wasn't that bad.

      Rather hear from managers with row rank finishes. (By row rank I mean below 200k not 10k) Makes me feel better,. 😀

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I'm around 500k ; worse finish in many a year but I sort of gave up playing when the COVID season hit and it all became luck and random. Played for fun thereafter and took hits nearly weekly ; was actually a lot more fun.

      2. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        270k here mate, anyway higher number are always better 😉

    3. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Turning point for many winners were those who played the FH in GW 28 and had Chelsea players and maybe Coutinho as captain as well. Am I wrong?

      1. lugs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        WC 22 for me with Bruno cap in that dgw went from 40k to 8K and a few wobbles in the weeks after but never went as high as 40k again, had Coutinho cap in 28 too but no Chelsea,

        special mention to gw9 & gw10, 130k to 28k gw9, 28k to 140K gw10 😆

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        People who got lucky over the covid debacle really got the rub of it ; lots of people just got blindsided.

    4. RedRo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Surely a big club comes in for Som this summer. The guy is a beast

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 13 days ago

        *Son

      2. POTATO
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yes, he'll want to play for a club playing in the Champions League next season. Oh wait...

        1. RedRo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 13 days ago

          If you think his level is a club he can drag to the CL once in a while you’re seriously underestimating him

          1. POTATO
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Which club would suit Son's pacy counter-attacking style out of the more successful clubs (not being sarcastic, genuinely interested)

            1. RedRo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 13 days ago

              I don’t agree that that’s the only way he can play. I think he thrives in any top side - City, Liverpool, Utd, Bayern, Real - and I think every side is improved as a result of him being there.

              1. NorCal Villan
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  United a top side

                  Dude, stop digging

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Under contract ; in the Champions League ; playing for one of the best coaches in the business. A new bumper contract is more likely.

          1. RedRo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Yeah, I guess he’ll want assurances from Conte that he’s staying initially

      3. Trent Robbo 66✅
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        How stupid is KDB winning the POTY??

        1. lugs
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          seems fair enough that they'd give it to someone from the champions, although Son would probably be my choice, with Salah being a bit crap since AFCON

        2. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          He has 15g 7a in 24 starts this season, and has made countless chances that have been passed up this season by teammates. He scored against Liverpool in 2 games and Chelsea in another. His form since he's had his first run of starts has been incredible. He's been voted player of the season by his peers 2 seasons in a row and is in the running for a third year in a row. What's so stupid?

          1. Ruinenlust
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            It’s player of the season , not player for half the season

            1. NateDog
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Like Salah who was good for about 17 games and did next to nothing since?

            2. St Pauli Walnuts
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Probably why Salah didn't win it then

        3. Cheeky Onion
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Could make arguments Son or Salah but neither one had an outstanding season from start to finish. As good and deep as City are, KdB is the one player who noticeably elevates their game when he's in the side - best midfielder in world football for my money

        4. POTATO
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Remember when Jordan Henderson won the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year. On that scale I'd say KdB POTY measures sensible. But Son has been my FPL hero in the second half of the season, and is my choice for POTY because of the golden boot (& without penalties)

        5. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Should've been Bowen. DeBruyne didn't even play nearly a quarter of the games.

        6. RedRo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Who could’ve won it instead? Salah but any arguments you level at KDB you could also level at Salah. Son but until he moves to a bigger club and wins something it’s never going to go to him

          1. POTATO
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Good point - best player from the Champion side - POTY is sensible, not 'stupid'.

          2. Bushwhacker
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Why does the club need to win anything? City won plenty of games without DeBruyne, West Ham struggled far more without Bowen.

            1. RedRo
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 13 days ago

              I agree but this is the way it is. We know it’s going to go to someone who’s won something (not saying it’s right at all)

      4. Cheeky Onion
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Was 76 points behind ML leader coming into GW 37 - beat him on a tie breaker for $3k! Thanks to all editors and commenters for a wild season, couldn't have done it without you!

        1. Yank Revolution
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Cheeky finish by you!

      5. Moose™
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I missed Top 10k (by around 100 points) due to the following reasons:

        1. Did not captained Salah against United (cost me around 50 points); and

        2. Wrong captaincy choices for 4 GWs on the trot (33 until 36). I capped Bruno for 2 GWs, which included his missed penalty against Arsenal.

        3. Habit of making really late transfers which caused me missed 3/4 deadlines especially GW34. I already drafted a WC team

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years

          Covid Christmas turned the whole thing into a lottery anyway ; it's a great season sprinkle with some great luck and some bad luck. Fine play.

            You keep saying that but its not true... this season needed us to be more attentive and plan for uncertainty.

            It was certainly harder maybe near impossible for the 'casual' but anyone on this site should be able to handle it.

          Captain choice is too important, I don’t like it

        1 month, 13 days ago

        Went from 2,100,000 overall rank in gameweek 10 to finish at 190,000. Slightly ruing such a terrible start to the season, but a lot of positives to be found. Achieved my highest ever points total (2451), and my second best rank.

      7. DLLM
          1 month, 13 days ago

          dismay gameweek 37 and 38... from being 15 point behind ML leader to 100 points behind now.

              Oh so you read my suggestion for price changes only occurring directly after the deadline. I think it would make each week more enjoyable. So you love it just the way it is?

                that comment only for joke and not directed to you but to answer your opinion, I'm open to any kind of change, if they want to change that price fluctuates based on performance of the player just like in Bundesliga fantasy, that I'm okay too

            I really hope FPL change their rule so that price changes only occur directly AFTER the deadline. I don't want to spend the World Cup worrying about FPL players getting injuries in the cup and and their price plummeting due to speculation over fitness.

          How did COVID change this season for you, and how did you adapt your strategy?

          For me, as soon as I saw the covid numbers spike i decided to do a few things;

          1. Makes changes as late as possible... which had a side affect of ignore the price changes. I didn't really look at price predictions after Nov
          2. Held my chips because the blanks = doubles later on
          3. Pay more attention to the news in case of cancellations (you really just needed to come here, someone would be talking about it)

            Mainly I maintained a strong bench, no fodder. Not many came off the bench, as it happened, I had double figure bench points in 13 GWs as a result

                im afraid it will be impossible if you want to fit likes of TAA Salah Haaland and Son.

                  • 8 Years

                  I doubt Salah-Haaland-Son triple would provide much value at start since only one of them can be captained.

            2. Nightrain_

              5.5 is great price indeed, definitely in and if I can afford double up with James, that's the way to go, don't wanna play with the minefield of Chelsea mid and forward again. Too unlucky with Havertz, Mount, Werner, etc

                Just occasionally pop up here and you will get some hints. Normally price release by FPL twitter is the first sign.

            Amazing end for me, won my ML by 13pts (was behind most of the year but my strategy from 35 to 38 got me from 300k to 70k and to overtake my rival in the ML).. Thanks to Kulu for 38!!!

            Highest total score as well with 2527pts and decent 70k (best OR is 5k but average over 8 seasons is more like 200k

                      Horrendous season for me, but did finish with my highest rank of the season - 270k

                      Spunked the Bench Boost early on, and got royally screwed by COVID postponements etc

            23k final rank and Leeds avoided the drop (sorry haterz). 19k in week 37 and tried to make up the 28 point gap to finish in the top 10k by captaining Mount.

            Best rank in years. How did you go? 🙂

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years

              Was on FH. Went with Mount captain as well but the arrows were green. Gained around 30pts by FHing but the impact was less as many got high scores. Finished at 193k, not the best but probably could have been worse considering my rank was dropping like a stone from 40k to 300k. No regrets.

              Leeds will manage to keep Raphinha? The way he celebrated, it looks like he may stay.

                No one really knows - it's all speculation. He was going to Bayern Munich in January wasn't he? Until pen is put to paper, you have to assume he is staying.

                Best year for playing the chips. TC Salah in 26 and the FHs in 30 and 37 worked out really well. Even the BB in 36 went well.

            Guys since the season is over, let us have a look back.

            1.worst performed players for you (name three)
            2. Best performers (name 3)
            3. Best moment
            4. Worst moment
            5. Worst moment of your rivals turned out to be good for you.
            6. Key moment that cost or win you your ml or got you a decent / great rank.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              1. Coutinho, Barnes and Broja was a big let down.
              2. Son (many went Kane), Salah (obvs) and probably Bowen or TAA.
              3. The TC on Salah in 26 was a big play.
              4. Missing out on the big hauls in 28 from the likes of Havertz, Coutinho when I didn't play my first FH.
              5. Don't have any rivals tbh. Losing in the FPL Cup to a lowly ranked player by one point was a bummer.

            2. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              1. Antonio, Dennis and Foden

              2. Salah has to be the best performer with captaincy and TC to boost his points. Averaged 15.6pts over 23 games for me. Among the differentials, Richarlison scored 61pts in just 4 appearances. Bowen as 3rd with 9.5 ppg.

              3. None really, havent watched football much this year. Getting Brighton CS for triple on BB plus Tsimikas doing well. Robertson goal, Matip assist, Sess-Rudi CS last night was a good way to sign off.

              4. GW10-34 was kind of slow poison for me.

              5. No rivals

              6. Nothing of note.

              1. DCL. Bougt him early in winter when he was comming back from injury and had him for many GWs.

              2. Son, Salah and Matip at the end.

              3. Captained Cancelo when he scored.

              4. Not owning Salah for games against ManU. He scored 5 goals and a assist? In the first game I had Havertz(C), second time Bruno (C).

              5. They didnt own Son the last few GWs.

              6. Won my ml. Ended up on 20k, glad for that. But my (C) blanked in both DGW36 and 37. Could have reached 10k with some luck.
