Fantasy football: FPL Gameweek 38+ transfer advice, captain picks & more


Kevin De Bruyne Jamie Vardy Sadio Mane

The race to finish in the top four goes down to the final day, with Manchester United and Leicester City going head-to-head, while Chelsea need just a point fromtheir meeting with Wolves at Stamford Bridge.

At the bottom, there remains a glimmer of hope for Bournemouth, although they will be relying on both Watford and Aston Villa slipping up, with the Cherries knowing anything but a win at Everton will see them suffer relegation.

And with just the one game to go, Fantasy Premier League managers will be looking to finish the season with a flurry, withevery transfer and starting XI choicepotentially being crucial.

From team selection adviceto possible captain picks and the latest FPL stats - Goal gives you all the tools you need to turn those arrows green and climb your league tables on the final day.

All 10 matches will be played simultaneously on what is looking an unpredictable final day of the 2019-20 season in regards to obvious picks and guaranteed point scorers.

Champions League-chasing Manchester United have gone off the boil in recent weeks, with the Red Devils only winning one oftheir last fourmatches in all competitions, with the rigours of the restart appearing to take their toll.

That said, the prize of a place at Europe's top table should see the likes of Bruno Fernandes (£9.1m), Anthony Martial (£8.5m)and Marcus Rashford (£8.9m)up their game, while Mason Greenwood's (£4.8m) nine-point haul last time out should see him given another start at Leicester.

Chelsea are in a similar position in that they should be fully focused on the task at hand, knowing that a point at home to Wolves will guarantee them a place in next season's Champions League.

Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) is the Blues' main manat present and the in-form American offers decent value if you're looking for a midfielder who costs less than £8m but still provides a huge attacking threat.

Indeed, the former Borussia Dortmund star has recorded four goals and five assists since the Premier League restart, gaining six points or more in all but one of Chelsea's eight matches in that period.

Meanwhile, there's no question over who is the most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 38+, with Raheem Sterling (£12m) proving hugely popular among FPL bosses following his two-goal, 17-point heroics last time out.

The only danger with going for the England winger is the worry that Pep Guardiola may opt to rest him ahead of Manchester City's Champions League showdown with Real Madrid, with the Blues having little to play for in their final-day clash with Norwich City.

David Silva (£7.5m) is one who should be a guaranteed starter, with the 34-year-old left out of the 4-0 win over Watford last time out as he prepares to play at the Etihad Stadium for the final time on Sunday. Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) should also feature as he chases a Premier League assists record.

Elsewhere, Harry Kane (£10.9m) has been back on the goal trail recently and with Tottenham travelling to an out-of-sorts Crystal Palace on the last day, the England captain will fancy his chances of adding to his tally at Selhurst Park.

One man who is due a goal, meanwhile, is Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).

The Liverpool forward hasn't scored in any of his last three games but he'll be desperate to break that duck against Newcastle, with the Egyptian one goal away from reaching 20 or more league goals for the third season in a row.

Sadio Mane (£12.2m) is another who isn't proving a popular choice for transfers, with, at the time of writing, only a little over 6,000 FPL managers transferring him in ahead of the final round of fixtures - that's less than Pepe Reina (£4.2m) and Michael Keane (£5.2m).

Southampton face Sheffield United in their last game of the 2019-20 campaign and Danny Ings (£7.6m) will be looking for goals as he attempts to chase down Jamie Vardy (£9.7m) in the hunt for the GoldenBoot.

The Saints striker is currently two goals behind the Leicester forward and is in the form of his life this season, with Ings having scored six goals since the Premier League restart.

West Ham forward Michail Antonio (£7.1m)is another that should enter your mind as you make those final squad tweaks, with the 30-year-old having scored six goals in his last three matches.

If you're looking for cheap options, Tariq Lamptey (£4.1m),Erik Pieters (£4.3m)and Emiliano Martinez (£4.4m) are all valued atunder £4.4m and should all feature from the start on Sunday.

Rotation is the big thing to consider when weighing up your captain pick for the Premier League finale, with Arsenal, who face Chelsea in the FA Cup final on August 1, and Manchester City in particular potentially having their eye on other targets and trophies.

That said, David Silva (£7.5m), in what will be his last domestic game in English football, is likely to be handed a start against Norwich, and there's every chance he'll hit double figures in terms of points on the day as he looks to go out with a bang.

Danny Ings (£7.6m) and Harry Kane (£10.9m) are both viable options as alternatives, with both in excellent goalscoring form and having favourable fixtures on the final day as they face Sheffield United (home) and Crystal Palace (away) respectively.

Total points scored: 133

Star player:Raheem Sterling (17)

Line-up:Ramsdale (11); Jonny (13), Alexander-Arnold (13), Pieters (12), Mings (12), Laporte (12); Sterling (17), Podence (10), Trezeguet (10), Lucas Moura (10); Kane (13)
