FPL Double Gameweek 37 – The Fixtures

A plethora of action engulfed FPL managers in Double Gameweek 36 with plenty of goals and points to feast upon. The first big fixture of the weekend saw Liverpool draw 1-1 with Spurs with Heung-Min Son (£11.1m) seeing his goal cancelled out by Luis Diaz (£8.0m). The following day began with a brace from Eddie Nketiah (£5.7m) as Arsenal overcame Leeds 2-1, whilst there were also victories for Everton and West Ham before Man City thrashed Newcastle 5-0, with attacking returns from the likes of Raheem Sterling (£10.5m), Phil Foden (£7.9m) and Joao Cancelo (£7.2m) among others.

Further delight for owners of Son followed in midweek as his goal and assist alongside two goals from Harry Kane (£12.4m) helped catapult Spurs to a vital 3-0 triumph over Arsenal, a match that also included two goals. However, the day before the North London derby was all about Kevin De Bruyne (£11.1m). The Belgian midfielder netted a 25 minute first half hat-trick away to Wolves, scoring four times overall as Man City emerged 1-5 winners at Molineux, drawing them ever closer to the Premier League title.

Another crucial week lies ahead of FPL managers with Double Gameweek 37 and it couldn’t be more important that playing assets from the right teams are targeted. We analyse the fixtures ahead, picking out those clubs with the most lucrative FPL possibilities.

GOAL HUNGRY KEVIN TO DESTROY HAMMERS

Following his incredible four-goal haul against Wolves, it would be no surprise whatsoever to see attacking midfielder Kevin De Bruyne at the heart of another free-flowing offensive performance from Man City in Double Gameweek 37 as they continue their march towards retaining their Premier League crown. West Ham provide the opposition at the London Stadium, another difficult assignment. However, this Man City team are in scintillating goalscoring form right now and it would be a brave FPL manager to back against them

De Bruyne has racked up 65 FPL points across his last six Premier League appearances and will understandably court the most interest. However, don’t discount Raheem Sterling (£10.5m) who bagged three goals, an assist and 28 FPL points in Double Gameweek 36. The midfielder looks on paper like the best source of points from a Man City asset perspective with the likes of Phil Foden (£7.9m) and Bernardo Silva (£7.0m) also worth consideration. But remember, you’ll be running the risk of Pep Guardiola’s infamous selection roulette!

SON SETTING ON SALAH’S GOLDEN BOOT HOPES?

After being substituted off during the first half of Saturday’s FA Cup final with what appeared to be muscle injury, Liverpool’s Mo Salah has to be considered a huge doubt to appear in either of Liverpool’s final two league fixtures, let alone start. This opens the door for Spurs star Heung-Min Son to potential unseat the Egyptian in the race for the golden boot. Son needs one goal to draw Liverpool with Salah and this along gives him huge motivation to perform in Double Gameweek 37.

Spurs host Burnley in what is a crucial encounter for both sides, albeit for very different reasons. From an FPL perspective however, it’s difficult to look beyond the two key Spurs assets of midfielder Son and forward Harry Kane. Defenders are also worth considering when taking into account that they have kept two clean sheets in their last four games with Emerson Royal (£4.5m) and Ryan Sessegnon (£4.3m) currently their two starting wing-backs.

LEICESTER PLAYERS SEEING DOUBLE

Those FPL managers considering bringing in any Leicester players have every reason to be encouraged by the Foxes’ 3-0 victory against Norwich last time out. They travel to another already relegated side in Watford this coming weekend, before another away trip to Chelsea who are coming off the back of an agonising FA Cup final defeat on penalties.

Although Watford did manage to keep a clean sheet against Everton most recently, goalkeeper Ben Foster (£4.2m) was extremely busy and it would be a big surprise if Leicester were not to find the net at least once at Vicarage Road. James Maddison (£6.9m) will likely prove a popular acquisition whilst fellow midfielder Harvey Barnes (£6.5m) is on the back of two assists against Norwich. It would also be remiss not to mention Jamie Vardy (£10.3m), who scored twice in the same game. Although be aware that he may not start both of Leicester’s Double Gameweek 37 fixtures with manager Brendan Rodgers boasting a number of striking options.
