@FFPundits_Drew is back his Safe vs. Differential fantasy football picks for FPL and Starting 11 in Gameweek 37
Good day to all fantasy bosses around the world and welcome to our Gameweek 37 edition of Safe Picks vs. Differentials, where I, @FFPundits_Drew, look to provide Fantasy Premier League and Starting 11 bosses with a mixed bag of picks for this weekend’s contests.
For those of you who play Starting 11 daily fantasy with us each week, we’re pleased to announce that both their Android and iOS apps are now available once again at the AppStore, so be sure to update or download for free ahead of Gameweek 37 and more importantly, in preparation for their Fantasy World Cup game… coming soon!
There are no Double Gameweeks here but I hope this week’s Safe Picks vs. Differentials give you plenty of food for thought when making your FPL transfers and creating your Starting 11 lineups.
Safe Pick – Kane vs. West Brom (A)
The general consensus on twitter is that Harry is off form, well after scoring two goals in his last two games whilst ‘off form’ – remember what he can do when he is back on it!
Kane exploded towards the end of the 2017/18 campaign and a trip to West Brom gives him the chance to close the gap on Salah in the race for this season’s Golden Boot.
West Brom may have had an upturn in form since the departure of Alan Pardew, however I still fancy Spurs be back to their best during the final games.
Differential – Vardy vs. West Ham (H)
Leicester’s season is over and their recent performances show that some players already have one eye on their summer break – they were completely outplayed by Crystal Palace even before the sending off.
One man who will continue to give his all is Jamie Vardy, his four goals in his last six games take his total to seventeen for the season – 5th highest in the Premier League and ahead Lukaku, Firmino and Lacazette.
I’d back any team to score vs West Ham and certainly when you have a striker such as Vardy – the Hammers have conceded eight goals in only two games making Vardy a great differential for you this weekend.
Safe Pick – Silva vs. Huddersfield (H)
After being granted leave of absence vs West Ham, I am expecting David Silva to return to the starting 11 this weekend for the Premier League presentation party.
I almost feel sorry for Huddersfield, the Etihad will (possibly) be full and Manchester City will without doubt want to perform like Champions before collecting their medals.
This could be a big score line and we know that Silva will be pivotal, having been involved in twenty Premier League goals this season.
Differential – Zaha vs. Stoke (A)
With his goal scoring form I am probably pushing my luck in calling Zaha a differential now – however I had to find a place for him again this week after a fantastic individual and team performance vs Leicester City.
His four goals in four games make him one of the first names in my Starting 11 line-up, especially with this week’s opponents being Stoke who are now twelve games without a win.
If Zaha and Loftus-Cheek can link up in the same way they did vs Leicester, then it’s sure to be a long afternoon for Stoke.
Safe Pick – Otamendi vs. Huddersfield (H)
Without doubt the position Pep Guardiola is rotating most of late is his centre back pairing – that said, I expect us to see a full strength Manchester City side vs Huddersfield and for Otamendi to retain his starting place.
It’s not only the trophy presentation on Sunday, but also an opportunity for records to be broken – something the manager and players will be fully aware of.
There is definitely a clean sheet on offer here, but can the Argentine add to his four goals for the season? Alonso and Monreal are the only defenders to have scored more.
Differential – van Aanholt vs. Stoke (A)
Another stand out performer for me last weekend vs Leicester, linking up nicely with Loftus-Cheek down the left.
I expected more from PVA after pre-season, although a poor start for Palace as well as losing his place in the starting line-up meant he wasn’t an option – fast forward to the final third of the season and he’s scored three goals.
This week up against Stoke, I hoping to see the Dutchman in advanced positions once again as well as picking up some crucial clean sheet points.
Safe Pick – Ederson vs. Swansea (H)
I expect those Starting 11 team sheets to be a sea of blue this weekend as Manchester City sweep aside Huddersfield Town, I will certainly be loading up with a City defensive stack.
Manchester City can’t defend, yet they have the best defensive record in the Premier League – could it be that they just haven’t been properly tested?
Up against the lowest scoring team this season, it’s a match made in heaven for Fantasy bosses.
Differential – Pickford vs. Southampton (H)
He was my differential goalkeeper last week and this week he keeps his place after picking up his third clean sheet in only four games.
Big Sam has done exactly what you would expect, taken his side back to basics and created a solid defensive platform to build on.
Pickford is now finally starting to live up to the hype surrounding him on Twitter this summer when he made his move from Sunderland to Everton.
