FPL GW38 Tips: Expect crazy scores in the last gameweek

Gameweek 38 of Fantasy Premier League is usually pretty crazy. Let’s quickly look at our FPL GW38 Tips.

Analyzing gameweeks 38 from previous 4 seasons, we noticed that we use to see a lot more goals in the last gameweek of the season. Here are the data:

SeasonAverage number of goals in GW1-37Number of goals in GW38The craziest scorePlayers with 3 goal involvement
2017/1826,6831Tottenham 5:4 LeicesterMahrez (1G+2A)
2018/192836Crystal Palace 5:3 BournemouthZaha (3A)
2019/2027,0833Manchester City 5:0 NorwichDe Bruyne (2G+1A), Aubameyang (2G+1A)
2020/2126,8931Leicester 2:4 TottenhamFornals (2G+1A)

Gameweeks 38 from previous four seasons were high scoring, with at least 4 more goals then the average goals per gameweek. We saw some crazy matches there and players who registered 3 goals involvement.

Will history repeat in GW38 of 2021/22?

We think so.


FPL GW38 Tips

Our tips for GW38:

  • Pick players from teams that still have something to play for (Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool)
  • Pick attacking players, if we are going to see a lot of goals, you want not just attacking mids and forwards, but also attacking defenders (TAA, Cancelo, James…)
  • Salah and Son are still in the race for golden boot – picking one of these two as your captain is safe option. We prefer Son over Salah
  • If you have nothing to lose, and your mini-leagues are decided, take -4 or -8 hit to bring in players you think that have high potential to score 10+ points
  • If you have nothing to lose, Mount and James are great differential captain option 
  • Target Norwich vs. Spurs game. We think that this is the game where the most points are going to be – spread among Spurs players: Kane, Son, Kulusevski, Sessegnon…
  • Differential for GW38: Lukaku
  • Expect unexpected, it is going to be crazy gameweek.
  • One player will highly likely register 3 goals involvements, try to estimate who that is and bring him in (our guess is Son).
  • It is the last gameweek of the season, enjoy it
