GAMEWEEK 38 PREMIER LEAGUE €100K FINALE.
It’s finally here – gameweek 38 and after a long season FanTeam has put on a mouthwatering contest with a €100,000 prize pool and with €10k to first place you are certainly going to need to find those hidden gems.
This is the first in a series of articles in which we will preview two of the Gameweek 38 fixtures with some hints and tips in helping you narrow down your player pool, so without further ado let’s get into it.
LEICESTER V SOUTHAMPTON
KICK OFF 16:00 BST
In essence a dead rubber here with both clubs having nothing to play for apart from the three points on offer. Let us start with the Leicester side of things the foxes are coming off back to back wins against already relegated Norwich and Watford, and with scoring Eight goals in the process let’s talk about some of the main options.
Jamie Vardy (10.5m) looks like a great choice to start the scoring and is more than reasonably priced, Four goals in his last two games the Leicester forward looks primed for a good day.
Others to consider are James Maddison (10.8m) and Harvey Barnes (10.3m) both midfielders have double point tallies in their last two matches and that trend can continue.
Southampton just seems to be looking forward to their summer holidays having lost three of their last 4 matches. With only one win in the last five they don’t inspire confidence.
James Ward Prowse (8.6m) is usually the focal point for the saints so at his price well worth considering if wanting to go against the grain. Fraser Forster (6.6m) is very cheap and should see plenty of shots but it’s another matter if he can keep them out,but at his price point could certainly achieve value.
Summing up can see a few goals in this game with Leicester taking the three points.
CRYSTAL PALACE V MANCHESTER UNITED
KICK OFF 16:00 BST
Once again a match that doesn’t have any real significance so we could see an open game with a few goals and plenty of attacking play. Starting with the eagles you could say a pretty decent season without really threatening to break into the top half dozen, and with winning two of their last three matches they come into this match full of confidence
Wilfred Zaha (8.9m) has 13 goals on the season and can certainly add to those on Sunday and at an attractive price could be well worth including in your Crystal Palace stacks.
Looking at some defensive assets Marc Guehi (6.5m) and Tyrick Mitchell (6.3m) both take the eye if you are looking for those all-important clean sheet points but won’t be an easy task against United.
Well, what a disappointing season it has been for the red devils changing managers at least twice and barely securing a Europa League spot. United are hoping to finish the season with a win in south London and that man Cristiano Ronaldo (10.4m) looks like just the man to do it, with 18 Premier League goals so far this season he is expected to add to that tally.
If you are Looking for alternatives other than the United frontman you couldn’t do much better than Bruno Fernandes (10.2m) although down on last year’s fantasy points he is still a really good attacking option with 7 assists and 10 goals on the year. Although no longer on penalties as now Ronaldo takes them but still well worth consideration at much lower ownership.
Prediction – Even looking contest with a 1-1 scoreline looking
