Midfielders

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) – Liverpool

Fixture: Burnley (a)

Mo Salah has scored five goals (1st) and one assist in his last seven games and is tied as the top goalscorer with Harry Kane on 22 goals overall. In the last seven, Salah has 29 Shots (2nd), 12 Shots on Target (2nd), 24 Shots in the Box (2nd), and 8 Big Chances (2nd). He has also created 14 Chances and 3 Big Chances so is clearly putting up very healthy numbers.

Liverpool have another great fixture in Gameweek 37 playing Burnley who have been poor defensively this season especially compared to their own high standards. More recently over the last seven games, they have conceded the most goals (14) while also conceding 75 Shots in the Box (15th), 38 Shots on Target (18th) and 16 Big Chances (16th).

Liverpool have one of the best attacking stats in the league this season and since Gameweek 30 they have the most Shots (135), Shots on Target (53), Shots in the Box (91), Big Chances (28) and goals (15). They are literally top for every important metric.

If we couple Liverpool and Salah’s stats with their league position then this should be a tantalising fixture for the Egyptian and the Reds. These next two games for Liverpool are a must-win if they want to make the top four and with their dramatic last-minute winner last Gameweek they will be fired up even more.

I can’t see a better captain option than Mohamed this week. Everything points towards him for the captains armband and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get a huge haul in this one. Our Points Prediction Tool has him at a massive 72% for anytime returns (1st) and he is also at 57% for anytime goal (1st).

Heung-Min Son (£9.7m) – Spurs

Fixture: Aston Villa (H)

Heung-Min Son has had his best season in a Spurs shirt. He has 17 goals and 10 assists and sits as the third-highest scoring midfielder in the game. Since Gameweek 30 the South Korean has four goals and one assist with 10 Shots in the Box, 8 Shots on Target while also creating 19 Chances and 1 Big Chance.

Spurs face Aston Villa in Gameweek 37 and looking at the Villains defensive numbers recently, Tottenham should score a few in this one. Villa have conceded the most goals since Gameweek 30 (14) while also conceding 133 Shots (19th), 79 Shots in the Box (18th), 47 Shots on Target (19th) and 15 Big Chances (15th).

They are clearly struggling at the back and have only kept one clean sheet in this time.

In the same period, Spurs have scored 14 goals (2nd) with 41 Shots on Target (3rd) and 17 Big Chances (5th). Also over the season, the North London club have managed 63 goals (4th).

Son has been putting up impressive numbers all season and clearly has a high goal and assist threat and he has another favourable fixture to add to his attacking returns. The Spurs attacker is ranked at 56% for anytime returns according to our Prediction Tool.

Mason Greenwood (£7.2m) – Manchester United

Fixture: Fulham (H)

Mason Greenwood has had a really positive impact for Manchester United at the business end of the season. He has really only come on to our radars FPL wise quite recently. Since Gameweek 30 he has scored six goals (1st) and 54 points (3rd).

He has also been putting up great stats as during this time he has registered 13 Shots on Target (1st), 20 Shots in the Box (3rd), and 5 Big Chances (4th).

Man United have a plum fixture in Gameweek 37 in Fulham. The Cottages are already relegated and have nothing to play for but pride. United will want to win this one and secure second place.

They have their Europa League final three days after the last game of the season so will surely want to use that game to rest key players.

Scott Parker’s men have conceded 12 goals (18th) in the last seven games and 17 Big Chances (17th). The Red Devils have scored 14 goals (2nd) over the same period with 17 Big Chances (5th). They have also been one of the best attacking sides in the league over the season notching 70 goals (2nd). Only Manchester City have scored more.

Mason Greenwood has really proved himself over the past few months and is now one of the best FPL options in the game when taking into account his price. He shoots a lot in the box which is great for FPL owners and has shown he knows exactly where the net is.

His stats and output since Gameweek 30 have even eclipsed top points scorer and teammate Bruno Fernandes. Our Points Prediction Tool has him at 50% to return anytime.

Raphinha (£5.5m) – Leeds United

Fixture: Southampton (a)

Raphinha has six goals and nine assists this season and has been a joy to watch. He came to Leeds with a lot of promise and has lived up to his reputation. At a starting price of £5.5m he has been one of the most underpriced players. Over the season he has 63 Shots, 22 Shots, 43 Shots in the Box while also created 58 Chances and 12 Big Chances.

Leeds United come up against Southampton in Gameweek 37 who have been really poor this season. They have conceded 63 goals (19th) and 80 Big Chances (16th) over the campaign and it's in the second half of the season where they have suffered the most.

Since Gameweek 20 they have conceded most goals (42) – 12 more than Sheffield United who have conceded the second most. They have also conceded 47 Big Chances (19th) during this period.

Leeds over the season have 183 Shots on Target (4th), 337 Shots in the Box (3rd) and have also scored 57 goals (5th). They have been phenomenal and have been great for the Premier League and also FPL.

As you can see above Raphinha's stats are equivalent to a premium player and he has both goal and assist threat. He is very much involved in most of the attacking play for Leeds United and they look a much better team with him in it. The Brazilian is at 42% to return anytime in Gameweek 37.

The best midfield differentials for Gameweek 37 and 38

As we approach the end of the season depending on your rank and goals you may want to go for players who are lower owned to shoot yourself up the rankings.

James Rodriguez – The Columbian is only owned by 8% of managers and has six goals and five assists in 21 starts. He is also only owned by 0.42% of managers in the top 10k. He can be explosive and has a good fixture in Wolves.

Jack Harrison – Has gone hugely under the radar this season. He is the highest scoring Leeds midfielder and has eight goals and nine assists. Owned by 4.4% of managers overall and 1.5% in the top 10k. His next two fixtures are as good as they come with Southampton (a) and West Brom (H).

Allan Saint-Maximin – He has had an injury ridden season but a great option when fit. 3 goals and 5 assists in 17 starts. His next two are also great with Sheffield United (H) and Fulham (a). He is owned by 3.1% of managers overall and 0.43% in the top 10k.

 

Forwards

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.6m) – Everton

Fixture: Wolves (H)

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has two goals in his last four matches with 13 Shots (3rd), 7 Shots on Target (2nd), 11 Shots in the Box (2nd) and 4 Big Chances (1st).  Although Everton have been poor recently he seems to be the only one getting in the goals with a 100% Goal Involvement during this time. Over the season his GI is 54% (3rd) which shows just how involved and vital he is to Everton’s attack.

Carlo Ancelotti's team play Wolves in Gameweek 37 and they are probably one of the few teams who have been worse than the Toffees. Since Gameweek 30 the West Midlands club have conceded 11 goals (17th) with 38 Shots on Target (17th), and 15 Big Chances (15th). They really haven’t been at the races this season and have had the worst season since their promotion in 2018.

Despite their poor form, this is still a good fixture for both Everton and Calvert-Lewin. The forward has 16 goals and 6 assists this season so he knows where the goal is. He seems to be the only one able to score for Everton right now and really should have scored last week where he missed from two yards out.

The positive for his owners though is that he is still getting chances and has the highest GI from his team which is what’s important when it comes to FPL.

Our Points Prediction Tool has him at 45% for anytime returns also.

Harry Kane (£11.8m) – Spurs

Fixture: Aston Villa (H)

Harry Kane’s goal last week took his total returns to 22 goals and 13 assists. He is now tied with Mohamed Salah as top goal scorer and you can bet your last penny he will be gunning for the golden boot in his last two fixtures, as will his teammates.

He has scored only once in his last three but he really should have a lot more. He has hit the woodwork on multiple occasions and even had a contentious goal ruled out for offside. Over the season his stats have been incredible with 132 Shots (1st), 51 Shots on Target (1st), 79 Shots in the Box (4th) and 30 Big Chances (4th). He has also created the most Chances (47) and Big Chances (15) amongst forwards.

Spurs play Aston Villa in Gameweek 37 and I really fancy Kane for this fixture. Villa have conceded the most goals since Gameweek 30 (14) while also conceding 133 Shots (19th), 79 Shots in the Box (18th), 47 Shots on Target (19th) and 15 Big Chances (15th). Spurs have scored 14 goals (2nd) with 41 Shots on Target (3rd) and 17 Big Chances (5th).

Kane has a 57% Goal Involvement (1st) over the season and it's not surprising seeing as he has 35 attacking returns (1st). He has simply been incredible, especially from a fantasy football viewpoint.

Despite his underwhelming returns over the last three Kane is still putting up elite stats and I would be very confident of returns against Villa. He is definitely the best forward option this Gameweek and certainly a shout for the captains armband this week also. He is top for forwards to return anytime at 66% and 53% to score anytime according to our Points Prediction Tool.

Patrick Bamford (£6.5m) – Leeds United

Fixture: Southampton (a)

Patrick Bamford has 15 goals and 10 assists this season and just like his teammate was grossly underpriced at £5.5m. His stats have been up there with the best all season. He has 101 Shots, (4th), 43 Shots on Target (4th), 90 Shots in the Box (1st), and 31 Big Chances (2nd).

Leeds United face Southampton at St Mary’s in Gameweek 37 and I this is a fixture Bamford will fancy his chances in. The Saints have been poor this season and especially in the second half, conceding 42 goals (20th) 47 Big Chances (19th) since Gameweek 20.

Leeds have been among the top five for attacking teams this season and Bamford is the focal point in a very attacking team. He should definitely start and be fresh for this game too as he was taking off at around the 58-minute mark last Gameweek against Burnley.

As long as Bamford is playing in this team he will get plenty of chances to score. We can see from the number of big chances and shots in the box he has, how involved he is. Another string in his bow is that he’s the number one penalty taker just now.

Michail Antonio (£6.5m) – West Ham United

Fixtures: West Brom (a)

Michail Antonio has two goals in his last three league games and has been a great option this season when he’s been fit. It’s really unfortunate from both a real-life and fantasy perspective that such a talented player is so injury prone. However, he is fit at the moment and with two games to he should be a great option especially this week against relegated West Brom.

The Baggies have been atrocious at the back this season. Over the season they have conceded 70 goals (20th), 561 Shots (20th), 356 Shots in the Box (20th), 229 Shots on Target (20th) and 87 Big Chances (17th). Overall they have by far the worst defensive stats in the league and it’s no wonder they bought in Sam Allardyce in an attempt to save them.

West Ham have a great campaign overall and even though they have been on a bit of a bad run – losing three of their last five games, I still think they will be too strong for the West Brom.

In only 22 starts Antonio has nine goals and five assists and his stats have been impressive too. He has 60 Shots, 24 Shots on Target, 48 Shots in the Box and 18 Big Chances, while also creating 24 Chances and 3 Big Chances. Our Points Prediction Tool has him at 57% for anytime returns.

The best forward differentials for Gameweek 37 and 38

Again looking at the differentials for the forwards there is plenty of options outside the popular picks which can help you catch up to your desired rank or win that all important mini league.

Edinson Cavani – The Uruguayan has been a fantastic signing for United and has 9 goals and 4 assists in only 12 starts. He may get limited game time but he has shown this season he doesn’t need many minutes to haul. His next two are Fulham (H) and Wolves (a) and he is only owned by 6.2% of managers overall and 1.24% in the top 10k.

Danny Ings – A proven goal scorer who unfortunately has had his season hampered by injuries again. The Saints forward has 12 goals and 4 assists in 25 starts and two in his last two. He has a Leeds United (H) and West Ham (a) in the final two games and is also the penalty taker for his team. His overall ownership sits at 7.3% and top 10k 2.11%.

Christian Benteke – The revival of Benteke in the latter part of the season has been great to see and with 9 goals and two assists this season, and three in his last three he is doing really well. Although his last two fixtures don’t read too good in Arsenal (H) and Liverpool (a) its clear Palace are playing some free flowing football since they were confirmed safe from relegation. I can see both these games being high scoring and would not be surprised with Benteke returns in both. He is owned by only 1.5% of managers overall and 2.35% in the top 10k.

In conclusion, I will rank these Gameweek 37 midfielders and forwards in accordance to our Power Rankings for Hub members!
