Will Sterling Play today ? This is the biggest question all the fantasy managers of the premier league will be having today.
Yeah, it’s a tough one to judge as Manchester City will be rotating their squad. They would love to provide an opportunity to their young talent.
Sterling missed out last match as he was not even on the bench. Here we have made a draft of players for the final game week of the premier league season.
We have looked at multiple factors while considering those players.
Relegation Battle –
It is very difficult to over come difference of 10 goals for Swansea. Yes Southampton could get battered by Manchester City tonight.
Swansea will be in attacking mode only, as they will be relegated even if they win with small margin. It would be a shock of the season if Swansea beat Stoke by 5 goals and Southampton lose by 5 goals against City.
So it would be wise if we consider one the Swansea attacker for this game week. Ayew brothers provide great option with Tammy Abraham. At least they will be in starting XI for sure.
On the other hand, Southampton will be parking everything they have got against City. They have no choice but to defend well as City is chasing those mammoth 100 points.
If you have Southampton attackers then you should get rid of them. Yes they can score if they concede early 3-4 goals. Personally I am getting rid of Austin.
Recently Stoke got relegated and Charlie Adam hit out in public against his team mates. I wonder that might affect team on final game week. They might end up losing by 3 to 4 goals.
( BBB Radio Article – Charlie Adam says ” Players are responsible for this debacle “)
Whatever happens but choose your fantasy team according to those conditions. It is very important to pick out such players to get ahead in your mini league.
Who will finish in TOP 4 ?
Liverpool made it interesting by losing against Chelsea. Chelsea also made it interesting against Huddersfield. I wonder what will happen on a final game day.
Reds need to secure at least a draw against Brighton at Anfield. Chelsea need a win and hope Liverpool lose against Brighton.
That’s a good news for fantasy managers. They can pick Liverpool players as they will be playing with usual suspects.
Salah, Mane and Firmino will look to repeat their performance against Brighton as they hammered them in the reverse fixture. Firmino scored a brace that night against Brighton.
Liverpool’s home form has been great this season as they are unbeaten at Anfield.
Chelsea need to go all out for win too. Giroud could be the differential pick in your fantasy team as he is having low ownership around 3.5%
Newcastle will be up against lot of attacking threats from Chelsea. Dubravka could really provide save points. This guy saved a penalty in the previous game also.
Salah vs Kane
As focus will be on securing champions league spot for Liverpool. Salah is leading goal scoring chart with 31 goals and he needs only a goal to break the all time record. ( Record 38 game season – 31 goals )
Tottenham already secured champions league place and Kane is 3 goals behind Mo Salah. He is facing leicester City at home in the last game of the season.
Remember last season Kane scored 4 goals against same opposition at King Power stadium. It was second last match of the season.
Kane’s goal scoring numbers in last three season depicts some pattern
- 2016-17 29 goals
- 2015-16 25 goals
- 2014-15 21 goals
If you forecast then he should score 33 goals and he loves scoring against Leicester too.
Well it is almost impossible to predict this but anyone can then it’s Harry Kane.
I just hope Salah gets a brace to keep Kane away from Golden boot.
Final Game week XI Selection
This is the team I have selected for final game week of the season. This is not my team. I have some players from it. We hope you can opt out for 5-6 players from this team at least.
I am currently at 2204 points in FPL. ( Check out my FPL team – My FPL Team )
If it’s going down to the wire in your mini league then it’s very important decision of this fantasy season for you.
You should not make ridiculous captain choices if you are topping the chart. I have benefited from that through out this season. Keep the faith in Salah and Kane.
If you are lagging behind then go for Aubameyang , Hazard or Jesus. Always have 1-2 differential picks in your team.
Differential Picks –
Arnautovic, Van Aanholt, Gudmundsson, Romero and Ayew brothers etc.
Hope you find this article useful. I wish every one best of luck for the final game week of the season. May you come out on top in your mini fantasy league.
As the biggest question remains will sterling play today ? I am definitely not picking him up.
Let me know, if you think I should consider other players for the final game week. if yes then comment below.
I would love to know those players.
