EPL Gameweek 37 – Who To Pick, Risk, Avoid in Your Fantasy XI

It’s going to be a busy double gameweek for the Premier League, with Chelsea, Watford, WBA, Man City, Arsenal and Sunderland playing twice. We may also see the crowning of the new Champions on Friday as Chelsea play West Brom and need only 3 points from their final three games. Here is our weekly digest with the suggested picks for this gameweek, as well as some notes on those players you might want to risk or definitely need to avoid. Help yourselves, and good luck!

Pick

Thibaut Courtois – Chelsea are running towards their fifth Premier League title and they will play twice over Gameweek 37, facing WBA away and Watford at the Bridge. I can definitely see some clean sheets coming?

Eden Hazard – Another Chelsea player, who will be crucial to Conte’s side in this final lap of their already sensational season. He scored 14 fantasy points in his last three games, and I can see him doing even better this weekend.

Gabriel Jesus – City are going to play Leicester City and WBA, both at the Etihad this gameweek and Gabriel Jesus is like to play in both games. Aguero is still not so likely to be fit enough, so pick the Brazilian.

Risk

Wilfred Zaha – He has been performing under his standards lately so he might not be the perfect fit for your Fantasy XI. However, Palace are hosting Hull City and still need some points to secure their position and stay up, with two games to go. Risky but worthy?

Jack Stephens – Cheap choice for your defence (£5.1m), Stephens will guide Southampton on their trip to Sunderland this weekend. He could be your man, if you’re willing to risk something.  He scored 16 points in his last three games, so that’s a pretty decent return for your money!

Mesut Ozil – One goal and a clean sheet in his last three games were worth 15 fantasy points. Arsenal will face Stoke away and Sunderland home this gameweek and the German might be a risky, yet good choice for your midfield. Keeping an eye on your budget, of course.

Avoid

Romelu Lukaku – I might sound unpopular, but the Belgian hasn’t found the net in his last three matches and the prospect of only one game to be played by Everton is not enough to consider him for your frontline.

Leighton Baines – Yeah, another Everton player. The fact is that the Toffees have kept only one clean sheet in their last seven games, and will play one game – at Goodison Park vs Watford – this weekend. Leave him alone.
