FPL Briefing | Gameweek 38+

We’ve reached the final gameweek of the Premier League and one final chance for FPL managers to pick up points in a bid to top their league tables.

After a comfortable win over Crystal Palace on Monday evening, Wolves travel to Stamford Bridge as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men try to confirm their place in next season’s Europa League by taking three points from Champions League chasing Chelsea. Ahead of the match, we have once again analysed two players – one from each side – who could make a difference to your Fantasy Premier League side.

With all 10 Premier League matches taking place at 4pm on Sunday, that means a 3pm transfer deadline for your teams that day, and to help you decide what moves to make ahead of Gameweek 38+, we’ve taken a look across the league and identified one player who could be a differential and another who will be hoping to end his Premier League career on a high as he makes his final appearance.

Wolves target: Matt Doherty

  • Position: Defender
  • Price: £6.5m
  • 2019/20 points: 167
  • Points since restart: 50

After being rested against Burnley, Wolves’ right wing-back Matt Doherty returned to the starting line up against Crystal Palace to produce his eight assist of the campaign to set up Daniel Podece.

The Irishman also collected the maximum three bonus points and now sits just one point behind Virgil van Dijk in third spot in the FPL defender standings.

Doherty has been involved in 12 goals this season and will be hoping to add to his attacking tallies when he faces the possibility of making his 300th appearance in gold and black as Wolves take on Chelsea on Sunday.

Blues target: Christian Pulisic

  • Position: Forward
  • Price: £7.4m
  • 2019/20 points: 124
  • Points since restart: 56

The final day of the Premier League season is typically full of goals, with the last term seeing 36 goals being scored in Gameweek 28, as six teams found the net on three or more occasions.

Pinpointing forwards has the potential to reap big rewards, and for Chelsea, American international striker Christian Pulisic has been the man in form since the season restart.

Emerging from the bench to score and assist against Liverpool on Wednesday evening to earn nine FPL points, Pulisic now has four goals and five assists in eight matches, blanking only once during that spell.

Differential: Nathan Redmond

  • Position: Midfielder
  • Price: £6.2m
  • 2019/20 points: 105
  • Points since restart: 36

Southampton winger Nathan Redmond is selected by just 0.9 per cent of FPL managers but welcomes Sheffield United to St Mary’s on Sunday in his most consistent period of form during the current season.

The 26-year-old has supplied assists against Manchester United, Brighton & Hove Albion and AFC Bournemouth over the last three Gameweeks.

His form, alongside the goalscoring exploits of Danny Ings, has helped the Saints run clear of the Premier League drop zone and he will be looking to complete his season in positive form this weekend.

Swansong: David Silva

  • Position: Midfielder
  • Price: £7.5m
  • 2019/20 points: 136
  • Points since restart: 36

Having missed Tuesday night’s 4-0 hammering of Watford, David Silva is expected to return to the Manchester City lineup for the final time on Sunday.

The midfielder will leave the club after spending the past 10 years in Manchester as his contract comes to an end. The 34-year-old will be aiming to add to the 39 FPL points he has achieved in his last three home matches when the Citizens host Norwich City at the Etihad.

With the Canaries having the leakiest defence in the top-flight, conceding 70 goals this campaign, and you wouldn’t bet against Silva having a perfect swansong to his time in sky blue.
