Anti-Fantasy, Players to Avoid – GW 38

 

A lot happened in relegation battle in gameweek 37. It all started with Brighton winning 1:0 against Man Utd to stay in Premier League next season. After that, Stoke lost against Palace t home, while Bournemouth beat Swansea and make Swansea – Southampton a direct duel! West Brom had a final push beating Tottenham 1:0 at home, but in the end they can only regret not appointing Darren Moore earlier in the season.

Cheslea won 1:0 against Liverpool to leave the possibility of reaching Champions League spot open. After that they played only 1:1 at Huddersfield, so now Reds need only 1 point against Brighton to take care of Champions league football next season.

So, the are only two unanswered questions for the last gameweek of the season: will Liverpool keep Champions League spot, and who will get down? Southampton beat Swansea 0:1, and now have 3 points advantage. They also have advantage of 9 goals in goal difference, and even game against Man City should not bring so heavy loss.

 

Top 3 worst performances in GW37:

 

Goalkeepers:

•       Butland – 1 pt – 2 goals conceded

Worst 5 choices of GW37:

 

One GW and only 10 games left until the end of the season! The worst team of the season looks pretty shaped up, with only one change occurred in GW37. The team, as it stands, is as following:

Asmir Begović in goal.

In defense: Francis, Dunk, Zabaleta, Schindler

In midfield: Schneiderlin, McClean, March, Oriol Romeu, Davies

Up front: Ashley Barnes



 

The last gameweek is always the hardest one to predict. Yeah, it’s like I did any good predictions before. Anyway, here you go guys:

 

Burnley – Bournemouth: Burnley lost heavily at Emirates last GW so mayble they’ll try and finish their great season on high notes. Anyway, either team does not really need points from this game.

Crystal Palace – West Brom: Baggies brought Darren Moore to late. Now that they are definitely down, I’d say that Palace is a favorite.

Huddersfield – Arsenal: Huddersfield is safe with a point from game against Chelsea, so they could possibly still be drunk by the start of this game. On the other hand, it’s Arsene Wenger’s last PL game in charge of Arsenal, and with a loss against Leicester in last GW, I think they’ll push hard to win this one.

Liverpool – Brighton: Liverpool need a single point, and it is a nice thing they play the last PL game at home, so the fans can appreciate this pretty much overachieving season both in Premier League and Champions League.

Man Utd – Watford: Only one point from two games for Man Utd in the last GW. It’s almost like Mourinho don’t really care for Premier League any more this season.

Newcastle – Chelsea: Rafa Benitez did a great job in Newcastle this season. They are safe for some time, while Chelsea should try to win this and hope Liverpool lose at home against Brighton. It looks like Chelsea needs to attack, so maybe Newcastle will get their chances.

Southampton – Man City: I think Man City will win this one with no problems. I doubt even Southampton can loose with 8 or 9 goals, so they should not care so much. Especially with a dreadfull season they had.

Spurs – Leicester: Spurs will play their final home game at Wembley this season. Of course they’ll try to win it.

Swansea – Stoke: Stoke is already down (thank God!), and Swansea is surely going down by the end of GW38.

West Ham – Everton: Both teams cannot wait for this season to end, I’d say.

Good luck FPL managers!
