The curtain falls on another Premier League season as Gameweek 38 approaches. Unlike Europe's other top leagues, the English title race goes down to the wire, a testament to the league's captivating drama. We'll remember this year for Arsenal's resurgence, Chelsea's revival, Klopp's potential farewell, Garnacho's wonder strike, and the controversial point deductions for Everton and Nottingham Forest. A season where 89 points might not win the title, but 29 secures survival – the Premier League's unique charm in all its glory. But for fantasy managers, it's the memories of captain hat-tricks, well-chosen players, and climbing the Krida Fans leaderboard that will truly resonate. So let's savour every moment of this final Premier League rollercoaster!

Key Takeaways from the Gameweek 37

Manchester City completed their challenges against London clubs Fulham and Tottenham Hotspurs with wins to lead the title race with 2 points going into the final gameweek with Arsenal also keeping their pursuit alive with a 1-0 Win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. Chelsea was also victorious in both games in the last week with a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest and a 2-1 Win over Brighton. Manchester United won 3-2 against Newcastle United in the week after Newcastle were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton in the weekend.

Burnley's relegation was confirmed with their 2-1 defeat against Spurs while Luton Town beaten 3-1 by West Ham United, are on the verge of relegation as they trail Nottingham Forest by 3 points and significantly inferior goal difference. Everton beat already relegated Sheffield United 1-0 while Brentford earned a 2-1 win over in-form Bournemouth. Liverpool and Villa played a thrilling 3-3 draw at Villa Park.

Players to watch out for Gameweek 38

Another major storyline this season has been the injury curse. Manchester United, Newcastle United, and Brighton have been plagued by absences throughout, while even Liverpool, Chelsea, and Aston Villa haven't been spared. The final gameweek is no exception, with key players missing for several teams. Before diving into who's available, here's a quick rundown of the injured stars you should be aware of:

Notable Absences

Chelsea's short-lived Reece James return is over after a red card means suspension for their season finale. They'll also be without Mykhailo Mudryk due to injury. Manchester City will miss Ederson in goal for their last match, with Stefan Ortega stepping in against Tottenham as a sign of things to come. Newcastle's woes deepen with Tino Livramento added to their ever-growing injury list.


Jhon Durán. Source:

a. Heung-min Son (Tottenham Hotspurs) might have had great opportunities to score against Manchester City but he remains Tottenham’s biggest attacking threat, his 17 goals and 9 assists this season proving the fact. As Spurs face Sheffield United in the next match, they would hope son finds his usual composure in front of the goal.

b. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) has only scored once in the last 6 games but he always remains Liverpool’s go-to man whenever they need goals. While speculations are high regarding his future at the club and if this game is indeed Salah’s last for Liverpool, he would surely like to end his Liverpool career on a high.

Tip: For 11.2 credits (525 points), Aston Villa’s Jhon Durán could be an interesting transfer choice. The forward scored a brace for Villa in their 3-3 draw against Liverpool but has been inconsistent over the season. With Villa’s Champions League spot confirmed, Emery can continue to explore Durán as a long-term choice.


Kobbie Mainoo. Source:

a. Martin Ødegaard (Arsenal) is etching his name deeper into Premier League midfield legend with another impressive season. Driven by the hunger for his first trophy in North London, the Norwegian maestro will be pulling the strings against Everton, determined to orchestrate a crucial victory for the Gunners.

b. Rodri (Manchester City) plays a critical role for City as the win in the last game of the season gives them their fourth successive title. The midfielder has been key in each of the previous titles and this one as well, and City remains unbeaten when Rodri is part of the squad.

Tip: For 9.4 credits (1112.4 points), Manchester United’s young sensation Kobbie Mainoo could be a great choice under 10 credits. The midfielder scored the opening goal for United in their win against Newcastle United and continues to shine in his debut season. As United faces Brighton in the next game, Mainoo would be eager to finish the season on high.


James Tarkowski. Source:

a. Malo Gusto (Chelsea) is perhaps the most consistent player for Chelsea this season after Cole Plamer. The right-back impressed again in Chelsea's win over Brighton in the midweek, adding another assist to his name. With Reece James suspended, gusto would be key for Chelsea to win their last game of the season.

b. Willy Boly (Nottingham Forest) has made important contributions for Forest in their last two games, particularly in their win over Sheffield United. With Forest most likely to survive the relegation battle, they would hope Boly would help them confirm with a win over Burnley.

Tip: At just 6.9 credits (1849.4 points), Everton’s James Tarkowski has been a steal for fantasy managers who took a punt on him. While off-field issues cloud Everton's future, Sean Dyche can rely on his defensive stalwart. Tarkowski's consistent presence at the back will be crucial as they aim to spring a surprise against Arsenal in the season finale.


Bart Verbruggen. Source:

a. Bernd Leno (Fulham) enjoyed the previous outing against Luton Town as the veteran goalkeeper registered a clean sheet in that game. With Luton needing a near-miracle (a 13-goal swing!) to avoid relegation, Leno's presence in goal became even more important. A repeat performance from the experienced goalkeeper could seal the deal for Fulham's winning end to the season.

b. Mark Flekken (Brentford) could not be as effective for Brentford in his first season as he was for Freiburg before joining the English side. The goalkeeper still kept 7 clean sheets this season and could play a crucial role in stopping Newcastle United’s attack.

Tip: At a budget-friendly 5 credits (868.8 points), Brighton's Bart Verbruggen presents a strong option for fantasy managers this week. The 21-year-old young goalkeeper spent most of the season solidifying his status as Brighton’s first choice and a great performance against Manchester United will strengthen his case further for next season.
