t’s the final weekend of the Premier League season and that means this it it for fantasy football managers.
Mini-leagues around the world will be settled by the ten matches taking place at the same time at 4pm on Sunday afternoon.
Here’s who we fancy to close out the season with a bang…
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) | £7.7m
Targeting teams with something to play for will be key, particularly as far as defenders are concerned – given we often see some crazy scorelines on the final day, clean sheets could be hard to come by. It was Andy Robertson who racked up the points for Liverpool in midweek but Alexander-Arnold has been excellent of late.
Joe Willock (Newcastle) | £4.8m
How can you leave him out at the moment? Six goals in six games, a bargain price and a favourable fixture against relegated Fulham.
Nicolas Pepe (Arsenal) | £7.6m
Pepe’s has been a steady improver for Arsenal in the second half of this season and you get the feeling that Mikel Arteta wants him to end the season on a high in the hope of getting something like the player the Gunners thought they had signed for the start of next season.
Sadio Mane (Liverpool) | £11.7m
Mo Salah will be the obvious choice from a Liverpool side who must win to seal Champions League qualification but Mane represents a differential for those looking to make up late ground.
Patrick Bamford (Leeds) | £6.5m
Bamford had had a quiet few weeks but bounced back in a big way against Southampton in midweek and you sense Leeds will fancy putting on a show at Elland Road.
Michail Antonio (West Ham) | £6.6m
Much like Bamford, the usually-reliable Antonio had had a tricky few weeks but he found the net against West Brom and will now be desperate to fire the Hammers into Europe at home to Southampton.
