To kick off Gameweek 37+’s picks, Raul Jimenez returns to Britwatch’s Fantasy Premier League radar and after netting his 17th of the season against Burnley, the Mexican will now be eyeing a possible 20-goal haul before the end of the campaign.
Scoring four in seven games since the restart, the Wolves hot-shot has again proved to be one of Europe’s top strikers around, and his volleyed goal at Bramall Lane underlined his credentials.
Welcoming Crystal Palace to Molineux on Monday night, Nuno Espirito Santo‘s charges play an Eagles side who have lost the last six games on the bounce with their only win since resumption coming at the Vitality Stadium.
Having shipped 15 times in seven games, Roy Hodgson‘s men have conceded eight times without scoring in the last three on the road. Jimenez therefore will be licking his lips and though yet to grab a brace at home this term, this week could finally buck the trend.
After scoring in the South coast derby against Brighton & Hove Albion – coupled with Jamie Vardy‘s failure at home to Burnley – Danny Ings now stands just three goals behind the Leicester City striker in the race for the Golden Boot.
As Southampton travel across the coast again to face AFC Bournemouth in Gameweek 37+ then, Ings will be eyeing further closing the gap ahead of the final day of the season.
With now 20 for the season, the Saints front man has continued his stunning form after the COVID-19 hiatus with five in seven games. Facing up to a Cherries side in a must-win game, Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s men stand perfectly poised to launch another away-day counter-attacking clinic.
If anything, Southampton have been a more complete unit on the road this season and since a 4-0 defeat at Anfield to the champions, have scored in every game away from home – on four occasions at least twice.
Ings himself has netted 11 of his goals away from St. Mary’s and after Bournemouth inflicted a 3-1 defeat on home turf back in September, will be keen to avenge matters.
Should the host’s relegation be confirmed at the final whistle, it is more than likely that Ings will have done most of the damage. Possible captaincy material for those managers seeking alternative routes.
Bournemouth may be heading for the Championship, but the Cherries are unlikely to go quietly against their Hampshire neighbours this weekend and David Brooks is a likely source of further points in Sunday’s game.
Scoring his first of the season against Manchester City in a 21-minute cameo at the Etihad Stadium last Wednesday night, Brooks will surely be in Eddie Howe‘s starting XI this weekend, as Bournemouth go in search of three precious – but still possibly forlorn – points.
As the man whose absence has gone a long way to explaining his side’s sudden struggles this term, the Welsh international could still have his say in their ultimate fate and even in relegation, Brooks will be in the shop window for prospective new employers here.
Capable still of sparking the Cherries to life, the attacking midfielder is beginning to find his feet once more, and though it could be too late for his current side, Brooks will still want to make a statement in Gameweek 37+.
As Manchester United picked up their third clean sheet win on the road against Crystal Palace last time out, the Red Devils showed a rather grittier side to their newly-found confidence, but it was still Anthony Martial who again would have impressed fantasy managers.
Making it six goals in seven games, the Frenchman has truly began to flourish with the industry of Bruno Fernandes in a central role, as Martial has shown signs of former league and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry – the man Martial was earmarked to replace in the hierarchy of French football.
Positioned on the left of attack, the United forward’s cutting and electric runs at defences have signified the new era of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, and Martial could now go on to make serious waves in English football.
Valued at 0.5 cheaper than Marcus Rashford and 0.7 less than Fernandes, Martial presents a real differential for managers and as West Ham United travel to to Manchester looking to shut down the opposition, it could be the former AS Monaco man to make a telling contribution.
Sheffield United’s defence has been a hit in FPL circles this season and with the Blades’ defence having picked up 13 clean sheets this term, the Yorkshire side have four players in the top ten scoring defenders in the game. Arguably the biggest cult hero has been John Egan, and he gets the nod once more this week for our final pick.
Having been a lingering threat all term, ironically it took his sending off against Newcastle United for the Irish centre-back’s stock to soar after scoring in back-to-back games against Burnley – grabbing a late winner against European rivals Wolves also.
Up until Gameweek 33+, Egan had 11 shutouts and one assist, but had already had two goals chalked off via VAR and was an obvious threat at pieces throughout the season.
Claiming a 15-point haul in GW34+, the Sheffield United defender confirmed his presence as a player with real potential for points at both ends of the field and as Everton make the trip from Merseyside in Gameweek 37+, Egan could be on for more spoils.
The Toffees have been an uncertain opponent since the restart, indeed their only goal away from home has been against relegated Norwich City. Having lost three and four-nil respectively on the road since resumption, the Blades and Egan will be eyeing a 14th clean sheet of the campaign – at the very least.
Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 37+ deadline is Saturday, 16:30 UK time.
