A key player may be injured or your best goalscorer might be suspended, and it makes sense to keep on top of things in order to maximise your points return each week.

GAMEWEEK 37 CHANGES DEADLINE: May 15, 10.30am (BST)

Team news

Liverpool suffered various injury issues during the FA Cup final win over Chelsea, with Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) looking certain to miss the Reds' Gameweek 37 clash with Southampton due to a groin issue.

Kevin De Bruyne (£12m) is proving a popular - and cheaper - replacement, while Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Virgil van Dijk (£6.8m) is also likely to miss the meeting with the Saints due to a knee issue that saw him brought off at the start of extra-time at Wembley.

Manchester City's main injury issue, meanwhile, relates to Aymeric Laporte (£6m). Pep Guardiola has said that the centre-back will attempt to train on Saturday, although his availability for the meeting with West Ham is in doubt.

Both Sergio Reguilon (£5m) and Cristian Romero (£4.8m) are both unavailable for Tottenham's game against Burnley, while Newcastle winger Joe Willock (£5.4m) is out of the final two fixtures of the 2021-22 campaign.

Plenty of FPL managers will be keeping an eye on the Aston Villa team news right up until the changes deadline, with Ollie Watkins (£7.5m) - who hasn't trained all week - rated as doubtful for the first of Steven Gerrard's side's double gameweek fixtures.

Jacob Ramsey (£4.7m) is, however, available for selection again having missed the last two matches due to injury.

As for Arsenal, who face Newcastle on May 16, it's unclear if Gabriel Magalhaes (£5.4m) will be fit enough to feature, with the Brazilian having to be substituted late on in the 3-0 defeat to Tottenham due to a muscle issue.

Who is the best captain pick for Gameweek 37?

Those who captained De Bruyne (£12m) last week were in dreamland as he delivered a 30-point haul across Manchester City's double gameweek fixtures.

We think Richarlison (£7.6m) stands out as the ideal selection this week, with a revitalised Everton having two home matches against Brentford and Crystal Palace respectively that could see the Brazilian hit big numbers.

Three differential picks for Gameweek 37

Vitalii Mykolenko (Everton) - Defender - £4.9m

The Everton left-back has proved to be a reliable attacking weapon for Frank Lampard's side during their recent resurgence and has averaged a little under seven points per game across his last three matches.

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace) - Midfielder - £6.9m

Zaha is the second most transferred-in player ahead of Gameweek 37 and with fixtures against Aston Villa (A) and Everton (A) he could deliver a solid points haul, with the Crystal Palace winger on penalties too.

Luis Diaz (Liverpool) - Midfielder - £8m

Luis Diaz's remarkable form for Liverpool has seen him brought into Jurgen Klopp's starting XI, even ahead of Salah. Given the injury to the Egyptian, Diaz should start against Southampton on May 17, where he'll be looking to build on the 15 points he provided in Gameweek 36.
