Sterling’s away form and low ownership can do real FPL damage

After a slow start for last week’s trio of differentials, we’re back ahead of Gameweek 2 on the lookout for the next low-owned bandwagon.

Several intriguing differential options emerged over the opening weekend. 

The likes of Tariq Lamptey (£4.5m), Daniel Podence (£5.5m) and Jack Harrison (£5.5m) all impressed, but this week we’re turning to assets at Manchester City, Newcastle United and Leicester City.

As always, to qualify, the player must have an ownership of 5% or less at the time of writing.

Raheem Sterling

  • FPL ownership: 4.6%
  • Price: £11.5m
  • GW2-6 fixtures: wol | LEI | lee | ARS | whu 

It feels strange to include a player like Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) in this section of our coverage, but the numbers don’t lie.

Despite registering an FPL score of 204 points in 2019/20, the England international comes into Gameweek 2 currently sitting in just 4.6% of squads. Let that sink in.

During Project Restart, Sterling led the way for goals (nine), which included a hat-trick at Brighton and Hove Albion, and expected goals (xG) per90 amongst midfielders, while his 10 big chances was only bettered by Michail Antonio (£6.5m). Five of his nine double-digit hauls arrived following the resumption, which ensured he outscored teammate Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) by 86 FPL points to 73. In comparison, his Belgian colleague is now in 30.9% of squads.

Ahead of a run of four away matches in their opening six fixtures, it’s also worth flagging Man City’s, and specifically Sterling’s form on the road last season. The Citizens scored 45 goals, which is six more than second placed Chelsea, and 12 more than Liverpool in third. Sterling also thrived on his travels – 70% of his league goals arrived during away games, while his 26 big chances in such matches was comfortably more than any other player. 

Man City’s season begins at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday, as they attempt to reclaim the Premier League title, before games against Leicester and Leeds United. Despite some tricky looking match-ups during that run, Sterling’s attacking output is up there with the best, and early investors could be rewarded with some huge differential hauls.

Ryan Fraser

Sterling's away form and low ownership can do real FPL damage
  • FPL ownership: 1.0%
  • Price: £6.0m
  • GW2-6 fixtures: BHA | tot | BUR | MUN | wol 

Ryan Fraser (£6.0m) didn’t enjoy the best of seasons on the South Coast last year. An underwhelming campaign saw him finish the season with a solitary goal, but I think it’s worth trying to understand why he struggled, while also casting our minds back to the season before last when Fraser was one of the most creative players in the league.

Last season’s issues aren’t easy to sum up. Back in January, he admitted “I didn’t play for the team” during the early part of the season, no doubt distracted by transfer speculation linking him with a move away. He also failed to play any part in Project Restart having declined a short-term contract extension.

Despite this, his expected assists (xA) per90 was still comfortably above that of any Bournemouth team-mate.

Now settled into a new, more positive environment, Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce will be hoping he can get return to the levels set in 2018/19, when he scored seven goals and provided 14 assists.

Encouragingly, and despite not playing much since March, Fraser made an instant impact on his debut on Wednesday night, when he scored the winning goal against Blackburn Rovers that helped send his team through to the next round of the Carabao Cup. 58 minutes were banked, and it’s now a question of when he’ll make his Premier League debut. This week might come too soon, so this is a move which does carry some risk, but he’s certainly in contention.

On Sunday, the Magpies entertain Brighton, full of confidence having beaten West Ham United in their opener. Their setup looked more balanced, we saw improvements at both ends, while in Callum Wilson (£6.5m) they finally have a fit forward who is capable of running in behind.

Fraser is an exciting footballer, who will be a genuine threat for Newcastle once up to speed, and could be a nice pick-up for those on the lookout for a midfield differential.

Timothy Castagne

FPL ownership: 4.0%

Price: £5.5m

GW2-6 fixtures: BUR | mci | WHU | AVL | ars 

Timothy Castagne (£5.5m) showed some serious promise in his side’s 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion in Gameweek 1.

The versatile full-back headed in Leicester City’s opener in a man of the match performance which saw him supply of all of the Foxes’ width down their right-side, and combine well with Spanish forward Ayoze Pérez (£6.5m).

Given they were without first-teamers Jonny Evans (£5.5m) and Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m), plus the recently departed Ben Chilwell (£5.5m), the Foxes’ defensive performance at the Hawthorns should be applauded, as they restricted West Brom to just three shots in the box, and an expected goal (xG) tally of 0.42.

Interestingly for FPL managers, Castagne has since suggested his full-back on the opposite flank, James Justin (£4.5m), was told not to advance so often to ensure there was enough defensive cover to allow him to join the attack at every opportunity. If that specific instruction from Brendan Rodgers were to continue, it would certainly make the Belgian a more enticing prospect, despite his £5.5m price tag.

Leicester’s fixtures between now and Gameweek 5 offers promise, with three home games against Burnley, West Ham and Aston Villa in the next four, while they also embark on a nice run from Gameweek 10 – 13.

Regardless of which side he’s deployed on, Castagne will be a threat whenever he goes forward, and owned by just 4.0% of squads, could help propel his owners up the FPL ranks.

        Unanimous, cheers guys

  2. Sgt Frank Drebin

    Judging by Nuno's comments I doubt Jota will play in the near future. Thoughts on potential replacement? Soucek, Trossard or maybe Podence? Or just wait another week untill there is more info and use 2 FT at once?

    1. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Podence is the obvious replacement

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years

      What has he said exactly ??

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I heard he left the team's hotel during the midweek game? (sorry forgot the source)

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Podence is a good shout.

        2. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          That could be anything. He may have felt ill or something. I wouldn't be bringing podence in just yet

      2. Sgt Frank Drebin

        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Nothing concrete and that's why it bothers me. This whole situation is quite strange.

        ""He was not available for the game," said the Wolves chief.

        "We have a short squad and all the options are good, but him and Max Kilman were not available for this game.

        "He wasn’t available, these are decisions we have to make. We have to prepare the squad, have to know what is the moment of the season.
        "He was not available for the game," said the Wolves chief.

        "It was a big turnaround, we have to take care of the players, improve our squad and our team and he was not available for the game. These are our decisions to make."

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

          Finally on the subject, asked if Jota will be available for Monday's Premier League clash with Manchester City, Nuno added: "I don’t know. We have to see.

          "You are going to speculate a lot. He was not on the squad list. Period."

          1. Amey

            Too much muddy waters 😀
            Staying away myself. Can get podence easily if he becomes nailed on

        2. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Either Nuno isn't happy with him/he is being sold or he has a personal issue and didn't want to play himself. Impossible to know which for now.

          1. Pumpy Pro

          Yer. I held back because even if there is a fall out , that could be easily sorted out . A lot of jumped to the conclusion he is finished at Wolves without knowing anything

    Who scores more over next 3?:

    A) TAA + Adams
    B Digne + Richarlison (-4)

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Head told me B, but loosing TAA could be high risk!

    2. Rassi

    Wildcarded because my team was crap, but can't decide between Salah, Rodriguez and Martial for (c). I actually don't see Man U smashing Palace as hard as everybody seems to think - seriously tempted to go Rodriguez against Brom for the handful of CS points too 😀
    --
    Martinez
    Digne, TAA, Justin
    Rodrigez, Salah, Podence, KDB
    Brewster (lol), Martial, Werner

    Ryan, Saiss, Bissouma, Mitchell
    ---
    Brewster is dead money if no xfer emerges.

    Am also slightly concerned that when Justin is cycled back out of the team, i won't be able to afford Leicester cover, but will cross that bridge when i get to it.

    1. Leonard hatred
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No auba because i'm a blatant casual.

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I upgraded to Wilson and tinkered with defence..

      1. Leonard hatred
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        would involve losing either TAA or Digne though.

        i'm hanging a lot on Brewster moving, fernandez not channeling his inner pele this season, and Auba not scoring 10 goals against westham.

        If those 3 gambles play off, i'm very comfortable in my ML for a couple of months.

    3. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Or I may move Salah last minute (dependant on price rise) and C Aubameyang.. On WC too, and tinkering too much

      1. Echoes
        1 month, 2 days ago

        That's what I'm leaning towards, as J. Rod seemed to operate quite deep against spurs. But then again, there's the chance Rashford may not be as effective as Martial FPL wise playing on the flanks. Really tricky, this one.

    9. Miguel Sanchez

        Well that's Nugent, but surely Steve Bull scored more?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I was told it was Nugent but you're right Steve Bull has 250 league goals with Wolves and most of that looks like it was in the second division

            I was thinking it was going to be someone who played for 25 years for the same club in the 50s/60s or something! Maybe your question was meant to be just PL era?

              I think it was PL era but I did ask that to my mate who said all time but pretty sure he is wrong.

    Wildcard activated, which option do you prefer?

    Martinez (Macey)
    TAA, Digne, Lamptey, AWB, (Mitchell)
    Auba, Salah, James, Trossard (Bissouma)
    Martial, Richarlison (Brester)
    0,5 itb

    Martinez, (Macey)

    Digne, Lamptey, Justin, (Siass, Mitchell)
    Auba, KDB, James, Foden, (Bissouma)
    Martial, Richarlison, Jimenez

    Pickford (Macey)
    Lamptey, Justin, AWB. (Siass, Mitchell)
    Auba, Salah, James, Trossard (Bissouma)
    Martial, Richarlison, Jimenez

    All teams will mean that Aubameyang become Salah/KDB nest GW.
    The team without Trent will switch one of the forwards to him after the games against Chelsea and Arsenal. Keeper will be Leno later on, that's why i have Macey as my second keeper.

    1. Silent Friend

      James Rodriguez (c)

      maybe.

      1. thepeen555
        • 4 Years

        Lol could be a good gamble

  11. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Hey fam! Which option?

    A. Digne & Podence
    B. Digne & Harrison
    C. Saiss & Foden
    D. Coleman & Foden
    W. Keane & Foden

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A. Keane & Podence

      Why not?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Digne is worth the 1m over Keane imo

        1. JBG
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Is he? Hasn't he lost set piece duties because of Hamez?

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years

            Who took their free kick to assist DCL against Spurs?

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      That should be E and not W. Lol

    3. Society
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Saiss & Foden, followed by Saiss & Podence

    4. Big Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A for me

    5. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Podence is risky but good if Jota does leave. I would keep an eye on that one and go Harrison for now.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years

    Vinagre->Keane/Shaw for a hit or start Rudiger/Vinagre(both might not start)?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Take the hit and sort your team out. Vinagre will continue to be an issue so might as well get it over with.

    what to do this week...

    a) save ft
    b) mount out for j rodriguez with ft
    c) mount and werner out for bruno and dcl -4
    d) mount and werner out for kdb/sterling and mitro -4
    e) salah out for kdb/sterling with ft

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    2. Society
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A
      Then once you have 2 x FT & 2 weeks knowledge, you'll create funds when you make your transfer.

    Any point in starting Steer?

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Probably not.

    2. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Can't hurt but looks like he'll start in bench

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      that would be a bum steer imho 🙂

    4. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'm trying it. Will have to be unlucky to be worse off

  15. raoulduke71
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Thoughts on Grealish?

    Acting as a placeholder for Greenwood atm but with Watkins and some decent fixtures he could be a strong option.

    1. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Good pick now he can link with Watkins to get more returns

    2. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Could be a good pick but I'm hesitant to buy into teams I think will be in the bottom 5.

  16. Stram Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Nitro -> Richa (-4)?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I can use some boost

    2. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Not for a hit, hold and assess after GW2

  17. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Prioritise C.Wilson or L.Digne?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Digne

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Wilson

      Wilson

  18. JustSomeGuy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    I'm getting closer and closer to choosing Sterling over KDB when I move Auba out, my only concern is I will want KDB+Sterling later on and can see KDB's price rising a few times before I can move my team to fund him...

    Possibly the only time I've let price rises get into my head. Anyone else in the same situation ?

    1. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      IS KDB expected to rise tonight?

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        looks to be price locked this game week

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      everyone ... because we normally have a Utd & City mid by now

      1. JustSomeGuy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I haven't seen many people even consider Sterling as an option.

    3. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I am leaning towards Sterling at the moment

    1. I Member

      No KDB either.

  21. konrad.sygula95

    Hi guys,
    what would you change in this squad?
    0.0 itb 1 ft

    Mccarthy/Nyland
    TAA/ Davies/Holding/Douglas/Mitchell
    Auba/Salah/Havertz/ASM/Stephens
    Ings/Werner/Mitro

    1. Alex1995
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Hold on for a week, then maybe consider moving on Davies, Havertz and Auba? May also want to swap Jimi for Ings in the next few gameweeks

    2. TB303
      • 3 Years

      Looks good to me

    3. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Lots of potential tinkering there, especially up-front.

  22. Puntillimon

    Salah Capt or Hamez capt?

    1. TB303

      Salah

  23. Alex1995

    So many people rushing to make lots of transfers for hits and playing wildcards, drafting in players who did well in GW1 - I’m all for picking the form players, but just because they scored well in the first week, doesn’t necessarily make them good long term picks?

    1. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I feel like i'm the only one holding to my GW1 FT at this point and self conscious

      1. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I’m with you

        1. Alex1995
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          As am I

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I just actually wanted to get rid of my donkey Alli and get Bruno need funds so did Werner to DCL , improved my team imo

      1. Alex1995
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Those are 2 transfers I actually agree with, it’s people rushing to bring in defenders who scored in GW1 and things like that - they’re defenders, they won’t score every week haha

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I actually wanted rid of Egan to but he has a couple of good games next

          1. Alex1995
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            I’m doing the same, will probably swap him for Saiss in a week or two when the fixtures swing

            1. Dynamic Duos
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              I may downgrade or swap to James, I have Saiss.

              1. Alex1995
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Yeah agreed, no rush to move on Egan for a couple of weeks, by which stage you’ll have had 3 weeks to pick the best 5.0 defender instead of 1

    3. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      It's not that, 4 teams who each have very good picks did not play in GW1.

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      dis you watch Everton and check out the price of a few of them ... snooze and you lose 😉

      1. Alex1995
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I have DCL, but tripling up on Digne, Hamez and DCL seems like overkill, plus I really don’t see the appeal of people like Keane

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          2 is enough agreed

        2. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          who is Hamez ?

          1. Alex1995
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            James Rodriguez

          2. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Hamez Rodriguez

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              you mean James ?

    5. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I did feel that I was getting too carried away with price rises at first but consider Alli's price-drop as a vindication of being right to push da button.

  24. Pinky and De Bruyne
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Is Hedrick at risk with Fraser back or will they play together ?

    1. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Not convinced Hendrick will retain his spot long term, Fraser a much more solid pick

  25. 1314
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    a) Robertson + Saiss
    b) TAA + 4.5

    1. TB303
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A

  26. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Which is the better trio?

    A) Rashford, Martial, Foden
    B) Sterling, Greenwood, Watkins

    1. Alex1995
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      A

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Mmm. Have a feeling most will go with A.

  27. TB303

    I’m a bit stuck with my next move. Any ideas please? Am I missing any good moves? 0itb.

    McCarthy

    Mitrović-Werner

    Ryan-Taylor-Bissouma-Davis

      Mitro stands out. But save imo

    Son owners keeping? Ideally want to wait to have 2 FT's next week. Spurs not looking good though.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Son long gone

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        For?

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          James Rodríguez

          1. Royal5
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Suprising, but he did look good and those Eve fixtures are tasty. Already own DCL so not sure about the double up and actually rather have Richarlison.

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              I brought him and DC-L in ... WBA next 😉

              1. Royal5
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Aha. GL!

    2. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I'm keeping but may have to purge him out if he blanks again

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Not an owner but I thought about getting him in. Southampton defence have seemed horrible in the first 2 games they played and if they play with a high line again, that could benefit Son greatly.

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        True, also LoCelso back will help. Leaning towards keeping.

    4. Flaming Flamingo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I'd want to give him the next two and then reassess

      1. Society
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Sounds crazy, with the next two being during the time he could be rotated for Euro.

    5. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Keeping.

    6. Lazaretti
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Difficult decision. I also have McCarthy, JWP and Adam from Saints and Davies from Spurs. Son to J. Rodriquez maybe

    7. TB303
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Sold for Bruno. It was always my plan

    8. bootsmanus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I’m keeping - don’t take him out based on one match. Hope he doesn't drop tho!

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Yh, think I'll keep. Based it on the EL game as well. Hopefully He and Spurs will bounce back!
