The last chance saloon to make amends is finally here as FPL enters its mega double Gameweek 37 that sees not one or two but ten teams take the field twice in the same week. Southampton and Arsenal will be joined by Chelsea, Manchester clubs, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Watford, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland in this double madness as managers are bestowed with one final chance to rack up a big point haul for possibly the last time this FPL season. Wasting no further time, we present to you our 4 picks for game week 37:
At £5.0m, Forster provides you with a route into the league’s fourth-best defence that has kept 13 cleansheets. The Southampton shot-stopper is one of the three goalkeepers to have played every single minute of Premier League football this term. While the first match sees the Saints travel away to the top-flight’s most goal-shy team in Middlesbrough, they then host Manchester United who are without a goal for 231 minutes on the road coming into gameweek 37. Forster recently made his first penalty save of the season against Liverpool and should be brimming with confidence as Southampton aim to end the season on a high.
Manchester City have looked like a well-rounded team ever since captain Kompany returned to the fold. The Belgian has shored up an usually porous City backline since his reintroduction and in the five league games featuring him, City have ended three of those matches with a cleansheet and the 31-year-old has even got twice on the scoresheet in this time period. The Etihad outfit are set for two home matches this gameweek as Leicester City and West Bromwich brace themselves for a trip to the north-west of England.
While the Foxes have scored only thrice in their five visits to top 6 clubs, the Baggies have failed to net a goal in five of their last six league matches. Despite his high evaluation of £6.0m, Kompany is still the fourth-highest transferred in player overall with more than 50,000 snapping up the defender. Kompany’s low ownership of 2.3% acquires him a differential status, meaning you will be getting points which your rivals most likely would be missing out on.
With 207 points, the Spurs midfielder features fourth in the list of highest FPL point-scorers this term. With an impressive haul of 17 goals and 9 assists, Alli has been directly involved in 26 of the 71 league goals scored by the North London club. That’s not all, only Romelu Lukaku (14) and Harry Kane (13) have scored more league goals than the midfield hotshot this calendar year.
Spurs take on Manchester United in what will be the last ever outing for the Lillywhites at White Hart Lane followed by a trip to the King Power a few days later to take on the outgoing champions Leicester City. Coincidentally, the 21-year-old was on the scoresheet in both of the corresponding fixtures last term and it was at Leicester where Alli opened his account for the club. The Red Devils’ last two league defeats have come in London to rivals Arsenal and Chelsea and Spurs would be certainly hoping for a continuation of the trend. Whether Alli could repeat history remains to be seen but this £9.2m-priced hotshot will be surely among the goals.
Under the new management, Vardy has rediscovered his lost mojo that saw him become one of the most feared strikers in the competition. The 30-year-old has supplied 7 goals and 3 assists in last 10 outings. His contribution share in Leicester’s goal haul for the campaign stands at an impressive 37.8%.
Leicester will travel to the Etihad to face Manchester City and a home match against Tottenham Hotspur follows days later. The 12-goal forward is the most in-form striker in the league right now and FPL managers know goals are a given when this man is on song. Though his £9.9m price tag could be a stumbling block for some but with this price tag, managers are going to be surely rewarded with plenty of goals and points.
