Liverpool (home v Wolves)

Sadio Mane


Sadio Mané has five shots on target in the last five games, second-most among Liverpool players; he has also scored two goals, the joint-most in the team in that period. With Mo Salah carrying a knock and Diogo Jota going through a dry spell (no goals in 11 games), there is a lot of pressure on the shoulders of Mané. He’s more than capable of stepping up though and could find the goals to secure Liverpool the title this weekend.

Luis Diaz


Luis Diaz has more goals and assists (five) in his last five games, more than any other Liverpool player in that period. Diaz is also likely to be called upon for this weekend’s game with Wolves and it’s likely he’ll share responsibility with Mané when it comes to scoring the goals to fire Liverpool to yet another win.

Manchester City (home v Aston Villa)

Kevin De Bruyne


Kevin De Bruyne has eight goals and assists in his last five games, more than any other player in the Premier League. It’s fair to say de Bruyne has been the stand out player over the past few weeks and that pushed him right to the front of the queue when it comes to the Player of the Year award. If he can finish the season with a flourish, he could be the main man to fire you to glory on the final weekend of the season.

Gabriel Jesus


Gabriel Jesus has scored five goals in his last five games, more than any other Manchester City player; he has also created two big chances and one assist in that period. It’s seems likely that this will be Jesus’ final game for City before he takes on a challenge elsewhere. Him finding the goals to ensure the title stays at The Etihad could be a fitting finish to his career with the side.

Everton (away v Arsenal)

Demarai Gray


Demarai Gray has created two big chances in his last six games, the joint-most out of Everton players; he also has one assist in that period. He’s the only midfielder to break the 100 point barrier in FPL for Everton this season and his ability in the final third could be the difference maker in keeping Everton in the Premier League, as well as giving you the points boost you need to ensure glory too.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin


Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored one goal from one shot on target in his last two games, the highest shot conversion rate among Everton players in that period. It’s taken a while for DLC to get back up to speed following his injury but he’s looking back to his best, and that is superb timing for the Toffees. A striker of genuine quality will be huge on such a huge weekend and Calvert-Lewin might be a great sleeper pick for your front line this weekend.

Leeds (away v Brentford)



Raphinha has seven shots and created five chances in his last five games, no other Leeds player has more shots or chances created in that period. Another player who is likely to be playing his last game for his team before a move this summer, Raphinha is certainly the player you’d put money on being the difference maker for Leeds this weekend. A grand farewell to preserve their Premier League status would see a massive profit pay off for your FPL side this weekend.

Joe Gelhardt

Joe Gelhardt has created three big chances in his last five games, and provided one assist , more than any other Leeds player in that period. If you’re a fan of narratives then the 20 year old, diehard Liverpool fan scoring the goals to send Everton crashing out of the top flight is up there. There are high expectations for Gelhardt and a huge performance here could see his stock, in both the Premier League and FPL, rise considerably.

Burnley (home v Newcastle)

Charlie Taylor


Charlie Taylor has completed 32 final third passes in his last six games, only three other Burnley players have more; he has also created one big chance and one assist in that period. Taylor isn’t the first name that you’ll think of when you consider who to bring in this weekend but Burnley take on a Newcastle side with nothing to play for and has shown some genuine promise in the final third in recent games. At a low price, there are certainly worst options out there on the final weekend of the season.

Maxwel Cornet


Maxwel Cornet has nine shots in his last four games, the second-highest among Burnley players; he also has one goal in that period. A moment of magic from the Ivorian to save Burnley from promotion would be a fitting end to what has actually been a pretty impressive first season in English football for Cornet, who has scored eight times for Burnley. A  big final weekend from the wide player would be a nice points gain for your side without breaking the bank.
