Fantasy Football Gameweek 38 Review: Title-winner Kompany takes the day, Suarez the season

The Manchester City captain was the joint-best player in the Premier League's last round while the Liverpool striker ends our fantasy game as the highest-scoring individual

How fitting that the captain of the Premier League champions should stand out on the day when they won back the trophy. Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany (6.5) led by example on the final day, winning his battle with Andy Carroll and scoring his side’s second goal with a poacher’s effort from close range. He finishes the season just one point short of 100 after adding 12 on Sunday.

Joining him as the best performer in the last gameweek is Arsenal right-back Carl Jenkinson (4.5). The 22-year-old scored his first senior goal for the club to seal a 2-0 win over Norwich City and helped to keep a clean sheet.

Though defenders dominated the points this week there were a few stars further up the pitch, one of them being Wilfried Bony (7.5). The Swansea City striker has gradually adapted to English football and ends his first season with a very respectable 138 points after scoring one and setting up another as Garry Monk’s men saw off Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Crystal Palace forward Dwight Gayle (4.5) went one better, though, as his double strike against relegated Fulham took him to 10 for the day.

The best return for a midfield player came at the Cardiff City Stadium, where Andre Schurrle (7.5) came off the bench to get a goal and an assist that turned the game around for Chelsea. In only 24 minutes the German earned nine points.



They might have taken the lead at Anfield but things fell apart for Newcastle in the end and the Magpies suffered the ignominy of having two players sent off. Long-serving striker Shola Ameobi (5) was one offender, picking up an entirely avoidable pair of yellow cards for dissent as he ended the season with -1 points.

Young full-back Paul Dummett (3.5), however, had it even worse. Having only come on the 81st minute, he only lasted five minutes before seeing red to lose two points.

Manchester City had a title party at the Etihad Stadium but it was not a successful hunting day for Sergio Aguero (10.5). The Argentine’s season threatened to be explosive before it was disrupted by injury but he could not end it with more than one point as he was booked against West Ham.

He had a better game, though, than Hammers captain Kevin Nolan (6). The Scouser was unable to do Liverpool any favours as a poor performance haw him booked and substituted, adding only one to his season’s tally, which finished on 114.

It was a rough day for Aston Villa as a disappointing season ended in a hammering at Tottenham, in which Gabriel Agbonlahor (6.5) was the worst culprit, conceding the penalty for Spurs’ third goal.


He could not translate it into title glory but Liverpool striker Luis Suarez (10) ended the Premier League season as the best player in our fantasy game, his incredible 31 goals and 12 assists taking him to a huge total of 223 points.

Joining him in breaking the double-century barrier was Manchester City talisman Yaya Toure (9), with Chelsea star Eden Hazard (9.5) on 170, Steven Gerrard (8) on 168 and highest-scoring defender Seamus Coleman (4.5) with 160 rounding out the individual top five.

Petr Cech (6) kept 16 clean sheets in a fine personal season for Chelsea and ends as our top goalkeeper.
