Fantasy Premier League 2015/16: Players to pick for gameweek 38

And then there was one.

With one weekend separating this Premier League season from the next, we know who will begin their title defence in August, and who will have to watch from the Championship. Places from 2nd to 7th are still up for grabs, so there is plenty to play for on the final day, ensuring a selection of reliable picks at the right end of the table for GW38.

There will be plenty to play for in FPL as well, as you look to exploit one final chance to edge ahead of your rivals. Read on to decide the one good transfer that will end your season on a high.

Gameweek 38 fixtures

Arsenal vs Aston VillaChelsea vs LeicesterEverton vs Norwich Man Utd vs Bournemouth Newcastle vs TottenhamSouthampton vs Crystal Palace Stoke vs West Ham Swansea vs Man City Watford vs Sunderland West Brom vs Liverpool

Player Picks

Forwards

Martial (7.7) - With 3 goals in his last 2 starts, Martial is attacking the run-in schedule with gusto. Man United will look to him for inspiration as they bid to pip City to the 4th and final Champions League spot.

Kane (10.2) - The Premier League's top scorer will look to maintain his status and secure a finish over Arsenal for his club as Tottenham visit an already-relegated Newcastle side on the final day.

Midfielders

Sanchez (11.0) - Alexis Sanchez has been in explosive form since early March, and will be relishing the prospect of facing Aston Villa as he looks to head into the Centennial Copa America on a high note.

Tadic (6.6) - 2 goals and 6 assists spread over the last 4 gameweeks have helped the Serbian playmaker rack up 41 points over this time period. There's no better time to get him in than for a game against a Palace side with an eye and a half on Wembley.

Hazard (10.9) - Last season's Player of the Year has averaged 12 points per gameweek following his return from injury, despite some difficult fixtures. Don't put it past Belgium's captain proving a point against the newly crowned champions.

Payet (8.6) - A late pair of assists settled a to-and-fro match at Upton Park in West Ham's favour, and he will look to repeat his heroics against a Stoke side with nothing to play for as West Ham aim to secure an unlikely 5th place finish.

Defenders

Rojo (5.0) - The Argentine defender delivered a solid 8 point return over the double gameweek, and should be expected to deliver again for the league's stingiest home defence against Bournemouth.

Gabriel (4.3) - With Mertesacker out with a hamstring injury, Gabriel offers the cheapest route to an Arsenal defence unlikely to be troubled too much at the Emirates by an abject Aston Villa side.

Bertrand (5.2) - Southampton haven't managed a clean sheet since Chelsea ended their run late in February, but the chances of one are high at home to a Palace side unlikely to exert themselves too much ahead of the FA Cup Final.

Keepers

Cech (5.9) - Arsenal are at home to the league's weakest attack, with the chance of finishing above Tottenham as added motivation. Expect another shutout as Cech looks to make the Golden Glove his own.

De Gea (5.9) - United have let in just 8 goals at Old Trafford all season, and the Spaniard has had a big part to play. Tied with Cech on 15 clean sheets, he is at home to a team with nothing to play for as United look to make something of an average league campaign late on.
