Ahead of the final round of games, the community return with their FPL Gameweek 38 tips.
It could be an unpredictable week and with Free Hit chips active, there’s lots of transfer activity.
Spurs assets are popular on the agenda, given their form and upcoming fixture. Choosing between Kane and Son can be tough, but Bakar makes sense of it all with some interesting underlying statistics. Kane edges it.
For those looking at Spurs assets for GW38+:
Kane vs Son (post restart)
Minutes per shots in the box: ∼51 vs ∼60
Minutes per big chance: ∼80 vs ∼329
FPL points: 45 vs 45
Kane's underlying numbers are much better hence I think he's the one to have if I had to pick one#FPL

Home and away form is also worth considering when we look at the best assets to select this week. Adam Hopcroft studies the data from the last four matches: David Silva and Bruno Fernandes sit top for home and away respectively.
Appealing away matches
Palace v Spurs
Leics v Utd
New v Liv

Choosing three Manchester City assets that start is going to be a huge challenge, but the Pep Roulette Matrix has been updated for the FPL Gameweek 38 tips. David Silva looks most assured of a start, with Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling also fancied.

FPL General has studied all the big numbers from the previous round of games, with some interesting statistics to consider. Andrew Robertson has gone under the radar, and there’s some important statistics for Sterling and Jesus.
🔢 A few stats that caught my 👀 in Gw37+
🔹 Robertson 3 chances created, he's had a big Gw38 before….
🔹 Sterling 6 shots, 5 on target, best (c) this week I feel
🔹 Jesus had 2 big chances, got to keep him right?

Finally, FPL Goat shares some important advice for those managers without a Free Hit this week. The activation of the chip has been popular within the community, but progress can still be made without it in the remaining gameweek.
Tips for the non free hitters ✔️
1. Don't rip your teams apart to fit in 3 city players, 2 could be enough or 3 if you can do it for a -4
2. Won't recommend getting a city defender or Ederson if you are looking for the 3rd city player in
3. You can sell one of Tony or Bruno
