The final double gameweek of the season features no sides ranked 9th or higher in the league, presenting the perfect opportunity for differential picks.  As always, we’ll be consulting our Fixture Tracker to help us with our selections.

FPL GW 37 Tips – Attack

Aston Villa

The Villans have arguably the best fixtures on paper, facing Crystal Palace and Burnley each at Villa Park. Having put three past Burnley just two weeks ago, there’s every chance of a repeat this gameweek.

Ollie Watkins (7.5m) has now scored three in his last six but is carrying a knock from his last outing against Liverpool. With an ownership of under 12%, Watkins is a nice alternative choice, but Danny Ings (7.7m) may be the Villa forward of choice. Two goals and an assist in his last three, coupled with an ownership of around 8% and a strong showing against Liverpool make him a great pick this week.

No returns in eight makes Philippe Coutinho (7.1m) a risky choice, but news of his move being made permanent may just offer a boost. Jacob Ramsey’s (4.7m) groin injury has ruled him out of the last two matches, meaning the safe option for anyone in desperate need of funds is Douglas Luiz (4.3m).

Everton

The Toffees are unbeaten in three and two points clear of the relegation zone. Home fixtures against Brentford and Crystal Palace could be just what Frank Lampard needs to steer his side clear.

1 in 10 FPL managers have jumped on the Richarlison (7.6m) wagon following four goals and two assists in his last eight. Leading the line and on penalties, it’s easy to see why the Brazilian international is Everton’s go-to attacking asset.

Alternatives are sparse but Anthony Gordon (4.7m) continues to provide value given his basement price, even without returns in five games. Demarai Gray (5.4m) is the differential pick for the Toffees with just over 5% ownership, however, the winger hasn’t scored since gameweek 15, assisting just once in that time.

Wolves

Bruno Lage’s side are in abysmal form having picked up one point in five with no wins in six weeks. Despite drawing 0-0 at Carrow Road, a fixture against Norwich this gameweek could still prove profitable for anyone in need of a gamble.

Unsurprisingly, Wolves assets are not highly owned right now, making them interesting differentials for anyone chasing their mini league leaders. Raúl Jiménez (7.5m) hasn’t had the best of seasons but has produced attacking returns against Watford (19th), Leicester (10th), Tottenham (5th), Southampton (15th), West Ham (7th), Everton (16th), Leeds (18th), and Newcastle (14th). The league position of those opponents should offer some hope for anyone considering the Mexican.

If that pick isn’t sufficiently outside the box, veteran João Moutinho (4.9m) has two double-figure points hauls and is owned by just 0.7% of FPL managers.

FPL GW 37 Tips – Defence

Leicester

The Foxes face a double against Watford and Chelsea before wrapping up with Southampton on the final day. Now out of Europe, rotation should calm down somewhat for the run-in.

Kasper Schmeichel (5.0m) is a great way to cover the doubles and has averaged 4.6 points per game over the last seven. Watford failed to score in double gameweek 36 and haven’t scored more than once in a game since mid-March, which bodes well for the Danish shot-stopper.

Wesley Fofana (4.3m) has proved unrialbale since returning from injury, missing out on Leicetser’s clean sheet against Norwich last time out. For bargain prices in the Leicester defence, Daniel Amartey (4.0m) is likely your best shout having started three in a row.

Crystal Palace

The Eagles may have nothing to play for besides a top-half finish, but trips to Aston Villa and Everton shouldn’t be ignored.

A knock that ruled Vicente Guaita (4.6m) out of their 1-0 win over Watford casts doubt over both his and Jack Butland’s (4.5m) starting place. Instead, an option in defence is a safer bet. Nathaniel Clyne (4.3m) is the pick of the bunch having started 11 league games in a row, contributing an assist in gameweek 35. His 0.7% ownership and five clean sheets in that period only strengthen his case.

Burnley

The Clarets remain with their heads above water for the time being and have a double gameweek against Tottenham and Aston Villa before hosting Newcastle in gameweek 38. With goal difference the only thing keeping them out of the relegation zone right now, points will likely be needed to avoid the drop.

Nick Pope (5.3m) is a decent shout in goal with save points to help his appeal and an ownership of 3.5%. However, there are cheaper options in defence with even better differential value.

Connor Roberts (4.4m), Charlie Taylor (4.4m), and Nathan Collins (4.3m) each have an ownership of 0.6% or less and have shipped just three goals in five games.
