Anti-Fantasy, Players to Avoid – GW 37

The biggest win of the gameweek was actually the one Crystal Palace recorded against Leicester. Eagles won 5:0 with five different players on a score sheet. Even Benteke scored! From the spot, though. Southampton won 2:1 against Bournemouth, so they still have a chance of staying up.

Race for the UCL spot is still open, because Liverpool played only 0:0 against Stoke at Anfield. It was a disappointment for all Salah’s owners, but it was understandable that Reds had something on their minds. Man Utd won against Arsenal with 90th minute winner, from no one other than Fellaini scoring a winner.

One of still opened questions remains “Will Man City reach 100 points in a season?”, after they won 1:4 against West Ham.


Top 3 worst choices in GW36 per positions:



  • Karnezis – 1 pt – 2 goals conceded
  • Adrian – 1 pt – 4 goal conceded, 4 saves
  • Ospina – 1 pt – 2 goals conceded


  • Zabaleta – -2 pt – 2 goals conceded, 1 own goal
  • Morgan – 0 pt – 5 goals conceded
  • Evra – 0 pt – 4 goals conceded



  • Albrighton – -2 pt – 55 minutes, 1 red card
  • Hojbjerg – -1 pt – 18 minutes, 1 yellow card (5th of the season)
  • Wanyama – 0 pt – 27 minutes, 1 yellow card



  • Murray – -1 pt – 23 minutes, 1 yellow card (8th of the season)
  • Diouf – 0 pt – 1 yellow card (6th of the season)
  • Crouch – 1 pt – 1 yellow card


Worst 5 choices of GW36:


With only 26 games left this season, the worst team of the league looks pretty shaped up. Asmir Begović remains in the goal, with the same 4-men defense in front of him: Francis, Dunk, Zabaleta & Schindler.


Huddersfield’s Jonathan Hogg is the latest addition to the midfield instead last-week’s addition Schneiderlin. The rest four are: Davis, McClean, March & Oriol Romeu. Our only attacker remains Ashley Barnes.


Gameweek 37 is of course a double gameweek, with 16 games in it. So, let’s try and predict the outcomes:


Brighton – Man Utd: Man Utd are of course favorites to win this game even though their second place is pretty safe. At the same time, Brighton are currently in the comfortable position.

Stoke – Crystal Palace: Well, Palace won against Leicester convincingly, so I’d expect from them to help Stoke finding their way down.

Bournemouth – Swansea: Normaly, I’d go for Bournemouth all the way, and I do think they are favorites, but I don’t want Southampton to stay up, and for that to happen, I need Swansea to stay up.

Leicester – West Ham: Leicester disappointed heavily last week against Palace, and I think they’ll try to make things better this week.

Watford – Newcastle: Tough game to predict, with both teams losing last week and not needing anything from the rest of the season.

West Brom – Spurs: Tottenham are clear favorites, and I’d be surprised if West Brom takes anything from this game.

Everton – Southampton: It rarely happens that I want Everton to win the game. Well, this one I really want them to win.

Man City – Huddersfield: Man City is going for the record, and Huddersfield should look for points elsewhere.

Arsenal – Burnley: I doubt that Burnley can upset Arsenal at Emirates, but I certainly hope they will!

Chelsea – Liverpool: It’s not that this game can help Chelsea winn a top-4 spot, but it can give them chance to be able to win it later. It is a derby of the gameweek, but iLiverpool will start thinking about it much later in the week.

Swansea – Southampton: I’s all said above, I’m all for Swansea in this game!

Chelsea – Huddersfield: Well, I’m not actually sure where Huddersfield should look for their points, now when I actually think about it.

Leicester – Arsenal: It would be quite possible that both teams won’t really need points from this game. So it could really end up being a really unimportant game to watch. Otherwise, I’d expect some goals in it.

Man City – Brighton: Brighton will really have a tough time in the last 3 games (in the GW38 they play against Liverpool).

Spurs – Newcastle: Tottenham will try to end up their season on high notes, so I think they’ll try and win every single point they can.

West Ham – Man Utd: It is similar with Man U, while West Ham probably only wants for this season to ends right now.

Good luck FPL managers!
