Fantasy Premier League tips: Gameweek 38

Whether you've loved or hated it, there'll be a huge sigh of relief once the final whistle of the Fantasy Premier League season sounds on Sunday evening.

It's been another difficult campaign for managers, with Covid-19 postponements and rearrangements playing havoc with plans across the country.

So with one final gameweek to go, here are 90min's picks to ensure you finish top of your mini-leagues and get that dreamy green arrow.

FPL Gameweek 38: Goalkeepers

1. Martin Dubravka (4.4)

Newcastle's newly found defensive steel has seen Dubravka called into action less over the last few months, a heavy defeat at Manchester City aside.

With three clean sheets in his last five games, the Slovakian has been picking up points steadily and his Magpies side face a goal-shy Burnley on Sunday.

2. Hugo Lloris (5.5)

Tottenham have a nervy trip to Norwich in which they can secure Champions League football if they avoid defeat at Carrow Road.

Lloris has been at his best in recent weeks and will hope not to be called into action too often against the Canaries, but on paper his chances for a clean sheet look good.

FPL Gameweek 38: Defenders

3. Ryan Sessegnon (4.3)

Continuing with the Spurs theme, Sessegnon has impressed at left wing back in Sergio Reguilon's absence.

The youngster has been growing in confidence and it seems only a matter of time before attacking returns are coupled with clean sheet points.

4. Kostas Tsimikas (3.7)

There may be a Premier League title on the line, but Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp may still look to rotate ahead of his side's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Tsimikas might be one beneficiary should Andy Robertson be wrapped in cotton wool. At such a cheap price he's worth a punt, but just make sure you've got a regular starter on your bench if Klopp opts for his Scottish left back over the Greek.

5. Reece James (6.4)

A more likely defender to feature is Chelsea's James. Up against an already-relegated Watford, there's potential for points at both ends of the pitch for the England international.

Five goals and eights assists is James' best return in a Premier League season, and you'd be brave to bet against him adding to that tally on Sunday.

Listen now to 90min's brand new podcast, Talking Transfers, with Scott Saunders, Graeme Bailey & Toby Cudworth. On this week's episode the trio discuss Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Manchester United, Kylian Mbappe's impending move to Real Madrid, Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Steven Gerrard's desire to reunite with Luis Suarez at Aston Villa.

FPL Gameweek 38: Midfielders

6. James Maddison (6.9)

This might be a case of the horse already bolting, given Maddison wracked up an extraordinary 25 points in two games in the last gameweek.

However, Leicester vs Southampton could be a goal-fest given neither side have much to play for. With three goals and two assists in his last three games, Maddison is definitely worth considering.

7. Bruno Guimaraes (5)

It took a while for Guimaraes to get into the Newcastle team regularly, but now he's in the starting XI he won't be dropping out anytime soon.

He dropped a masterclass in the 2-0 victory over Arsenal and is always eager to get into the box. A fantastic option for the final gameweek if you're searching for a cheap midfielder.

8. Jarrod Bowen (6.9)

Bowen has had an incredible season for West Ham and is firmly established as one of the Premier League's best forwards.

He's shown both his creative and finishing prowess in the Hammers' last two games, setting up two goals against Norwich and grabbing a brace against Manchester City.

9. Yoane Wissa (5.7)

Just 0.2% of FPL managers currently own Wissa, who has become a steady head in front of goal for Brentford this campaign.

Two goals and an assist in his last two games show he's in great form, and there's every possibility that he'll bag more points against a defensively poor and frantic Leeds side.

FPL Gameweek 36: Forwards

10. Jamie Vardy (10.3)

Given his issues with injuries this season, Vardy netting 14 league goals is a remarkable achievement.

When fit he gives Leicester such a unique threat, and he'll be licking jis lips at the prospect of facing Southampton, the team with the fourth-worst defensive record in the division.

11. Danny Welbeck (6)

After a season of missed chances - at Brighton, you're never alone in that regard - Welbeck is finishing the season and his goalscoring opportunities well.

With two goals and three assists in his last four games, the former Arsenal forward represents a good value option for those of you needing to cut back on price up front.
