Fantasy Football Football Tips: Three transfers to make for Gameweek 38

The final weekend...

This Sunday sees the final weekend of Premier League action, with matters at the top of the table still to be decided. For the first time in 5 years the race for the title has gone down to the final day, with Manchester City and Liverpool thrashing it out following a gripping battle.

Pep Guardiola's men travel to the AMEX Stadium to take on Brighton, knowing that as long as they better Liverpool's result they'll be named as Premier League Champions for a second successive season - becoming the first team to do so since Manchester United back in 2009.

Liverpool on the other hand host Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves in what looks like a potentially tricky game on paper, but there's no room for error. The Reds must win and hope that City slip up against the 17th placed Seagulls, which is a big ask.

But away from matters on the pitch, there's still the small matter of Fantasy Premier League to be concluded. After 37 gameweeks we're finally at the end and there's bound to be some gripping races at the top of your leagues just like in the actual PL itself.

Below we've included our three recommended transfers for Sunday's action - agree with our picks? Get involved in the debate @FootyAccums!

Defence - Yann Valery v Huddersfield (H) - £4.1m

One of the cheaper options in the game but certainly a productive one is Southampton youngster Yann Valery, who's enjoyed an impressive breakthrough campaign on the south coast. Since the appointment of Ralph Hassenhutl, the 20 year-old has been virtually an ever present in the Saints line-up and he's repaid his managers faith with some impressive displays.

The full-back is capable defensively whilst also posing a threat going forward, which is shown by his contribution of 3 goals (2G 1A). His performances led to the club allowing regular right back Cedric Soares to depart for Inter Milan, which shows how highly rated Valery is. He's started 10 of Southampton's last 12 league games and something that makes him extra appealing to #FPL managers is his differential - with him selected by just 3.8% players in the game.

Yan Valery Southampton

This weekend his Southampton side take on Huddersfield Town at St. Mary's and despite their defence not being too tight recently, they'll fancy their chances of keeping a clean sheet. The Terriers have scored just 21 goals in their 37 league games this season - 11 fewer than anyone else. Just 11 of those efforts have come on their travels, were they've lost 14 of their 18 games, so the stats don't make good reading for the travelling Huddersfield fans. But for Valery owners, he has good potential for a solid week and at £4.1m he's definitely worth the risk.

Midfield - Mohamed Salah v Wolves (H) - £13.3m

Next up we've gone for someone a little more well known, coming in at a massive £13.3m. Mohamed Salah is the most expensive player in #FPL and it's for good reason, with the Egypt international contributing a massive 34 goals (22G 12A) this season. Once again he's been one of the key driving forces behind Liverpool's success this year and Sunday could prove to be a memorable day for him for a number of reasons.

He's currently 2 goals clear in the race for the Golden Boot (which would be his second in as many seasons), whilst his side also know that they could potentially win the title should Manchester City drop points against Brighton - so there's plenty to play for.

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Wolves are the visitors to Anfield on Sunday and they're an opponent Salah enjoys facing, with him on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture at Molineux. On Merseyside the Egyptian has been terrific, scoring 13 times and registering 5 assists in just 18 appearances - meaning that he averages a goal involvement every game on home soil.

Wolves are by no means easy opponents despite them having nothing to play for, but Anfield will be absolutely rocking on Sunday with the title potentially on the line. Wolves have failed to win in 5 of their previous 6 league games on the road, losing on 3 occasions whilst failing to keep a clean sheet since October. So we're expecting Salah to enjoy himself on what could prove to be a memorable day for him.

Forward - Sergio Aguero v Brighton (A) - £12.0m

Our final transfer comes in the form of Manchester City's all-time leading goalscorer - Sergio Aguero. The Argentina international is once again leading by example in terms of goals with 31 contributed (20G 11A) in the Premier League this season - spearheading yet another title challenge. His City side travel to the south coast on Sunday to take on Brighton at the AMEX Stadium, knowing that three points will see them win the title for a second successive season.

He's just 2 behind Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot so he also has added personal motivation to put in a positive performance this weekend. And playing against a struggling Albion side you'd expect him to certainly do so. No forward has accumulated more points than Aguero during the duration of #FPL, registering a total of 195 - his second best total since transferring to the Etihad from Atletico Madrid back in 2011.

Sergio Aguero Manchester City

Brighton have gone 9 matches without a win in the league and they've kept just one clean sheet in that period, so Aguero & co will be liking their lips at the prospect of this clash. He's selected by over 42% of players and it's easy to see why he's so popular, but we think he's a great selection for your team and a potential candidate to be captain.
