Often the goalkeeper position is the one that FPL managers change least over the course of the season. However, on the final day there could be some good points to be earned by making a Goalkeeper transfer. We asses the best goalie picks for Gameweek 38.
When choosing a goalkeeper for the final Gameweek of the season the fixture is likely to be key.
The Spurs captain has the best fixture in Gameweek 38 according to the Fantasy Football Scout fixture ticker. Spurs travel to Norwich on the final day knowing that if they get a result they will qualify for next seasons Champions League.
Lloris and the Spurs defence have kept back-to-back clean sheets against Burnley and Arsenal. In Gameweek 38 they face the team who have scored the fewest goals this season. In addition only Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea have kept more clean sheets than the Lily Whites this season.
Of the goalkeepers Lloris however is third for clean sheets as the Chelsea goalkeeper have shared minutes as a result of AFCON. Lloris has also made 99 saves in his 37 starts for Spurs this season.
With the exception of the matches against Liverpool and Man City, Newcastle have been in good form in the Premier League. In the other three fixtures since Gameweek 32 Dubravka has kept a clean sheet. Newcastle face Burnley on the final day of the season.
Burnley will be tough opposition because their position in the Premier League for the new season is not yet secured. However the Clarets have scored just four goals in the last four Gameweeks, only Norwich, Leeds and Watford have scored fewer.
Dubravka has returned 17 saves in the last four Gameweeks, resulting in save points and/or bonus points in all of his last three matches. These additional points could be the difference between a red or green arrow on the final day of the season.
Man City will need to win their final match of the Premier Legue season if they are going to retain the title. The CIty shot stoppers 20 clean sheets is tied first with Liverpool’s Alisson over the course of the season.
Ederson could be a good way to double up on the Man City defence without the risk of rotation. However Aston Villa will offer good attacking threat. Managers should be cautious as City haven’t kept a clean sheet against Villa in their last two league meetings.
