Gameweek 38

Defence – Ryan Bertrand v Stoke (£5.6m)

It’s been a season of transition for Southampton but they’ll be looking to end it on a high. Claude Puel’s men have their sights set on an eighth placed finish which would represent fairly decent progress considering how inconsistent they’ve been over the course of the campaign. They haven’t been able to deliver the amount victories and points they did under Ronald Koeman last term as a team but some of their key men have continue to perform to a high level. With none impressing more than Ryan Bertrand. The England international is one of the finest full backs in the Premier League, comfortable both defending and attack. He’s a dependable member of the squad, delivering a solid 7/10 each week and he’ll certainly be interesting plenty of clubs in the summer. But for the time being he has a job to do on the final day of the season and he’s an excellent choice for your team. At £5.6m he’s well priced and he’s facing a goal shy Stoke side, so he has an excellent chance of picking up at least six points here.

Midfield – Gylfi Sigurdsson v West Brom (7.4m)

Swansea City’s Premier League fate was decided last week but they’ll want to end a rollercoaster of a season with something to shout about. The Swans’ 2-0 win over Sunderland on Gameweek 37 coupled with Crystal Palace’s 4-0 win over Hull ensured Paul Clements men would remain in the top flight for another season. No one can argue that they deserve to stay up and there’s been a number of catalysts behind their survival, with Gylfi Sigurdsson being the main one. The Iceland international has been different class for the Welsh outfit over the last few months, scoring nine goals and registering thirteen assists. Only four midfielders have picked up more points than him in Fantasy this season which shows just how he’s been and we’re expecting him to do some real damage against an out of sorts West Brom here.

Forward – Jamie Vardy v Bournemouth (£9.9m)

Last seasons Premier League Champions Leicester City play their final home game against Bournemouth on Sunday. It’s been a mixed defence to their title but if they can end it with a top half finish it would be a pretty successful season. Since Craig Shakespeare was appointed manager till the end of the season The Foxes have gone on to pick up 22 points from his 12 games in charge – only Liverpool, Chelsea & Spurs have accumulated more over that period. He’s still yet to land the job permanently so he’ll be going all out in this one and looking to star striker Jamie Vardy to do the business. The England international has been a man reborn under the 53 year-old, netting six times and picking up two assists since he took over. He isn’t cheap at £9.9m but he’s definitely worth the investment as he’s facing a Bournemouth side that struggles to keep clean sheets.
