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.

Craze scores in GW38 of previous seasons

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
