Well, here we are. The final Gameweek of Fantasy Premier League is upon us and champions will be crowned across the world. This is your final chance to score high in the quest for glory over your family, friends and peers.
Manchester City have wrapped up the title and we have already seen Pep Guardiola rotate his players with his focus now on the upcoming FA Cup and Champions League finals. Many FPL bosses were left devastated by this as City assets like Erling Haaland were heavily captained for Gameweek 37’s double header.
This will certainly give players a lot to think about when making their final transfers of the season. For one last time, The Sportsman is here with three tips to help give you your best chance at gaining FPL glory in 2022-23.
Liverpool could be in for a huge haul against downbeat Saints
Anfield was given a poetic moment last weekend when Roberto Firmino rescued a point for Liverpool against Aston Villa on the Brazilian’s final home appearance for the club, and it was great for their Champions League hopes.
The Reds will be playing Europa League football next term but Jurgen Klopp and his players will want to finish the season strongly. They travel to relegated Southampton on Sunday and they could be in for a fruitful afternoon. Top scorer Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) is just one goal away from recording his fifth 20-goal haul in the Premier League in the past six years. He is currently level with his tally from 2019-20, the year they won the Premier League.
Newcastle can finish on a high against Chelsea
Newcastle United sealed their return to the Champions League on Monday, so it is mission accomplished. However, Eddie Howe, being the coach he is, will want to see his team end the season on a high as they travel to face Chelsea on Sunday. The form striker Callum Wilson has been in of late has been most impressive, and should he score two goals against the Blues, he will become the fourth Newcastle player to score 20 goals in a single season in the Premier League era. Wilson is priced at £7.2m.
Awoniyi on fire
Nottingham Forest’s Taiwo Awoniyi’s goal against Arsenal last week ensured his side’s survival, while crowning Manchester City the champions of England for the third successive year. In his last three games, Awoniyi has scored five goals and is one goal away from reaching 10 for the season in the top flight. The Tricky Trees travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Sunday and with nothing riding on the fixture, there could be an interesting game in store.
