GW37 Algorithm XI
By Fantasy Football Fix ()
Everton and Villa have excellent odds of a clean sheet this week as per our Fix Algorithm which sees Pickford, Mykolenko, Digne and Cash make the Algo XI. R. James (10) and Digne (eight) are second and third for chances created amongst defenders for the last four gameweeks while Cash is fifth for shots on target (SoT) (two). No keeper has picked up more bonus points (five) than Pickford over the aforementioned period.
Salah was on the bench against Villa midweek and should start against Southampton despite the FA Cup final on Saturday. Liverpool's hosts Southampton have conceded 13 'big chances' over the last four gameweeks, only Norwich (14) and Man. Utd (18) have been more generous. As the Stats Sandbox image below shows, Zaha is ranked fifth for shots (13) amongst midfielders and top for SoT (eight). Penalty duties are also a huge appeal.
Vardy's brace against Norwich took his tally to 12 for the season, only Kane (15) and Ronaldo (18) have scored more amongst forwards. Ings has been afforded five 'big chances' over the last four gameweeks, no forward has been afforded more, so he also makes the cut.
As the above image from our Match Stats feature shows, Richarlison is top amongst Everton players over the last five gameweeks for goals (two), Expected Goals (1.9), SoT (seven) and assists (one), so he completes the Algo XI for gameweek 37.
