Get ready for one last exhilarating ride!

Key Takeaways from the Matchday 37

Manchester City were crowned Premier League champions even before their match against Chelsea as Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest secured the latter's survival. Everton's Yerry Mina scored a crucial 99th-minute equalizer against Wolverhampton Wanderers, giving Everton control over their fate, being two points ahead of relegation rivals Leeds United (who lost 3-1 to West Ham) and Leicester City (who drew 0-0 against Newcastle).

Liverpool's hopes of securing a Champions League spot were dashed after a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa. This result ensured that they would have to settle for a Europa League spot next season, as they were unable to catch up with Newcastle United (who drew 0-0 against Leicester City) and Manchester United (who triumphed 1-0 against Bournemouth and 4-1 against Chelsea). Joining Liverpool in the Europa League will be Brighton, who secured their place with a 3-1 victory over Southampton before holding champions Manchester City to a 1-1 draw in the midweek.

Players to watch out for Matchday 38

All the matches of the final round of fixtures would be played simultaneously on Sunday Evening. As the season reaches its finale, the battle for points is also at its peak, with every point becoming increasingly crucial for fantasy managers as they aim to end their season on a high note. Let's look into notable absences before going through players who can help you to top the leaderboard:

Notable Absences

While there would be a plethora of talent to choose from in the upcoming fixture, few of the important players would be missing from the action. Crystal Palace would again miss their talisman Wilfried Zaha against Nottingham Forest, due to injury. Manchester City might caution on the side of safety as Phil Foden was substituted at halftime in the last match and is expected to miss the season's final game. Newcastle United would be without goalkeeper Nick Pope and midfielder Joelinton, both absent due to injuries.


Jarrod Bowen. Source:

a. Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford), often overshadowed by his teammate Ivan Toney, is silently savoring a wonderful season of his own. Despite the spotlight being on Toney, the 23-year-old forward has emerged as a key contributor, showcasing his prowess with 9 goals and 7 assists, including a significant strike against Spurs in the last match.

b. Aleksandar Mitrović (Fulham, following an eight-game ban, has made a triumphant return, leaving a lasting impression with three goals in his last two matches. Despite Fulham's final game of the season holding little significance, Mitrovic is eager to demonstrate his abilities against the formidable Manchester United.

Pro Tip: For 10.9 credits, West Ham United’s Jarrod Bowen (1932 points) could be a potentially smart choice as the forward still features in less than 1% of the fantasy squads but has been performing great in the recent matches.


Bruno Guimarães. Source:

a. Martin Ødegaard (Arsenal), along with the entire Arsenal team, may feel a tinge of disappointment in finishing second in the league despite having held the top spot for a significant portion of the season. Nonetheless, the midfielder had a truly remarkable campaign, contributing 15 goals and 7 assists. He will be aiming to add a final touch of sweetness to his impressive individual performance in the last match against Wolves.

b. Moisés Caicedo (Brighton) can easily be described as the find of this season as the midfielder helped an already good performing Brighton side to even higher levels. Caicedo and Brighton would be looking to cap off this historic season with another impressive show against Aston Villa.

Pro Tip: For 10.4 credits, Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes (1887 points) has been highly underrated this season with him currently present in less than 1% of the fantasy squads. The midfielder is one of Newcastle’s most important players this season as they look towards Champions League football next season.


Virgil Van Dijk. Source:

a. Kyle Walker (Manchester City), despite not featuring in every match this season, has consistently displayed his impressive prowess whenever given the opportunity, particularly shining in the latter part of the campaign. At 32 years of age, Walker still holds the distinction of being one of the fastest men on the pitch, a testament to his remarkable athleticism. 

b. James Tarkowski (Everton) played a pivotal role in Everton's late equalizer against Wolves in their previous match, securing a valuable point for his team. Everton manager Sean Dyche, fully aware of Tarkowski's reliability, will look to his trusted soldier to lead the charge in this final showdown of what has been a grueling battle for survival.

Pro Tip: For 6.9 credits, Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk (1904 points) could represent a great choice for transfer for any fantasy team as the defender and his team would be looking to end a disappointing season on a high note against relegated Southampton.


Neto. Source:

a. Emiliano Martínez (Aston Villa) had a tough game against Liverpool in the last match and would be looking towards an equally challenging assignment against Brighton in the last match of the season. Villa is a point above Spurs and would be relying on their goalkeeper to help them win against Brighton to confirm their spot in the Europa Conference League next season. 

b. David De Gea (Manchester United) might not be great with his feet but he is surely one of the best shot-stoppers in the league, his Golden Glove award for 17 clean sheets confirming the same. De Gea would be looking to match his record of 18 clean sheets in a season as United face Fulham in their last match of the season.

Pro Tip: For 4.4 credits, Bournemouth’s Neto (1221 points) could be a highly rewarding transfer as the goalkeeper, who features in less than 1% of fantasy squads. Bournemouth would be playing their last game of the season against Everton, who are likely to be aggressive as they look to survive in the Premier League, presenting a great opportunity for Neto to showcase his talent.
