Liverpool and West Ham differentials to consider for Double Gameweek 24

Gameweek 23 saw double-digit returns for Paolo Gazzaniga (£4.6m), John Fleck (£5.0) and, one of our differential selections from last week, Leandro Trossard (£5.8m).

All of these players have a Fantasy Premier League ownership of 5% or less, suggesting there is still budget value to capitalise on and help propel you up the rankings.

This time, two of our picks have Double Gameweeks to enjoy, whilst the third is looking to kickstart his career at a new club.

Joe Gomez

  • FPL ownership: 4.2%
  • Price: £5.2m
  • GW24-28 fixtures: wol + whu | SOU | nor | WHU | wat

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are among two sides involved in Double Gameweek 24, and will visit both Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United over the coming eight days.

Loading up on their assets is a no-brainer but if your budget won’t stretch to one of Liverpool’s premium defenders, FPL bosses could do a lot worse than look at Joe Gomez (£5.2m).

The 22-year-old centre-half has completed 90 minutes in each of the Reds’ last seven league games, in which they’ve kept seven clean sheets, and has returned 44 points in the process. Interestingly, that’s identical to Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) over the same period.

The return of Joel Matip (£5.2m), and to a lesser extent Dejan Lovren (£5.3m), could impact his minutes, but the feeling amongst supporters is that his consistent displays alongside Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) has secured his spot in the first team for now.

Whilst this part of the analysis is usually reserved for the opposition, this is Liverpool, and they are that good that it’s perhaps not even necessary. It goes without saying that two further clean sheets are a real possibility.

Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) remain the stand-out picks but if funds are needed further forward, Gomez’s price of just £5.2m offers real value.

Sébastien Haller

  • FPL ownership: 3.3%
  • Price: £7.0m
  • GW24-28 fixtures: lei + LIV | BHA | mci | liv | SOU

Talk of Liverpool assets has rightly dominated discussion in the FPL community since their Double Gameweek was announced last month but what about the other team involved, West Ham United?

Back-to-back matches against Leicester City and Liverpool limits their appeal but their subsequent Gameweek 25 fixture at home against Brighton and Hove Albion offers further encouragement.

For those in search of a mid-price forward, Sébastien Haller (£7.0m) may be worth a look.

The Frenchman does look low on confidence but has pedigree, having supplied 15 goals and nine assists for Eintracht Frankfurt last season.

His underlying stats over the last three Gameweeks are also worth noting, with only four forwards taking more shots in the box.

Whilst it’s ambitious to think Haller will return anything more than appearance points against Liverpool, an encounter against Leicester looks more promising for West Ham’s attacking prospects. The Foxes have conceded 12 since Gameweek 18 – only Aston Villa have let in more in that time.

Talking after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton, David Moyes suggested his team need to take advantage of Haller’s aerial ability and supply him with more crosses in dangerous areas in the box.

If West Ham’s wide players take heed of those instructions and provide better service to their record signing, Haller could soon add to his six goals for the Hammers.

Cenk Tosun

  • FPL ownership: 0.3%
  • Price: £5.7m
  • GW24-28 fixtures: SOU | SHU | – | NEW | bha

When you think about Crystal Palace, resolute defensive performances are something you associate with them.

Goal threat certainly isn’t.

However, the arrival of Cenk Tosun (£5.7m), combined with Jordan Ayew’s (£5.0m) fine form, means they may have addressed some of those issues.

Tosun, who joined Palace on loan from Everton earlier this month, earned his first start against Manchester City on Saturday and scored a clinical header just before half-time, helping the Eagles secure a 2-2 draw with the reigning champions.

On the back of that draw, the Eagles are now undefeated in five league games and sitting pretty on 30 points.

In addition to the obvious attributes associated with a target man, Tosun also has the ability to find pockets of space, whilst possessing enough composure to play in others. It wouldn’t surprise me if we see one or two assists in the forthcoming weeks.

Their opponents, Southampton, have put up good defensive numbers in recent weeks, but despite this have managed only one clean sheet in their last eight away matches.

As far as debuts go, Tosun’s was excellent, and whilst it is only one game, maybe he’s found the right environment at Selhurst Park to thrive.

Those considering this move should be aware Tosun will miss Gameweek 26 due to being ineligible to face his parent club, Everton.

    double pool attack or defence better?

    1) swapping richarlison and mount to salah and fodder
    2) bringing in vvd or robbo (who is better)?

      Tough choice, in the same dilemma but likely leaning towards VVD.

    2. Bedok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Why not a one week KDB to Salah or Vardy to Firmino, then flip back. Otherwise, how much do you have for 'fodder' in the 'Salah and fodder' option?

    3. Henning
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      For dgw attack, for the long run i think double def is the way to go.

  2. RyanMK

    A. Rico + Richarlison > VVD + Grealish
    B. Rico + Richarlison + Abraham > VVD + Martial + DCL (-4 hit)

      Foster
      TAA / Dunk / Sidibe / Williams
      Salah / Mane(TC) / KDB
      Aguero / Ings / DCL

      Ryan / Traore / Fleck / Lund

      Team and bench ok? Also really torn between Mane and Salah for the armband.

      1. redsallstars

          yeah looks great. same situation for me, undecided on salah or mane

      2. Tmel

        Do you expect Williams to keep his place with Shaw, Bailly & Dalot back?

          • 1 Year

          He's not nailed, but he's worth a punt and have a decent 1st sub.

        2. Monkey magic 1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Not sure but he can’t be any worse than those.

        Hi all,

        Which one of the below should I bench?

        A. Grealish (WAT)
        B. DCL (NEW)
        C. Greenwood (BUR)

        I don't fancy Grealish against Watford, but others seems to think dropping him is silly.

        Thanks in advance for your input.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Got to be C just through doubt on game time

        2. disarrays11
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          C, don't bench grealish. He's sure to play and if Villa score at all he's sure to be involved. If you don't dare play him against a side like Watford than why bother owning him.

        3. JoeSoap

        TAA,Robbo and Van dijk for double. Is it stupidity going with no Salah or Mane?

        1. The_Fish
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          It's definitely brave. Not sure it's stupid. I'd be hiding behind the sofa for all 180 mins though.

          Very brave, I wouldn't do it personally seeing how both are away games. If it was at Anfield, I would be much more tempted.

          Painful when you get a transfer totally wrong but Jimenez to Ings last gw looks one of those. Good chance Ings gets rested giving the managers comments

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 6 Years

              Local paper daily echo with some quotes again from manager about protecting Ings

              Mane and Salah have a higher Ceiling imo

              Do you always use the higher floor logic when choosing a captain? Obviously I understand the reasoning, just seems a rather boring way to play.

                I'm at 18k and happy to keep getting consistently decent scores. If it aint broke..

                  Fair one. Makes sense with an 18k rank. I’m at 220k so Salah TC it is.

            tempted to avoid a SV loss on Maddi - gw25 not too bad for Noble

          A. Rico + Richarlison > VVD + Grealish
          B. Richarlison + Abraham > Salah + Greenwood

          Current squad:

          Ryan
          TAA - Soyuncu - Kelly
          KDB - Cantwell - Maddison - Mane
          Vardy - Ings - Abraham

          Button; Richarlison, Rico, Lundstrum

          West Ham players most likely to play two matches?

          Haller? Snodgrass? Noble?

            All 3, lots of days between matches

        12. greggles

          G2G?

          McCarthy
          TAA / Cathcart / Sidibe
          KDB / Salah (c) / Grealish / Traore
          Vardy / Ings / Firmino

          Subs: Button / Rico / Lundstram / Hayden

          Bench order right? Worth a punt on Firmino (c)?
