The differentials that could help improve your FPL rank in the coming Gameweeks

FPL Family’s Sam picks out the low-owned assets who could prove to be sage investments heading into the festive season.


With a quarter of the Premier League season gone already, we are starting to see increasing use of the much-loathed E-word (‘essential’) in the FPL community.

Fantasy managers are starting to know who the premium assets that they want to hold long term are and that list of names seems to get longer (and more expensive!) with every passing week.

Harry Kane (£11.0m), Son Heung-min (£9.5m), Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m), Mohamed Salah (12.2m), Ben Chilwell (£6.1m), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m) all sit in the top ten for FPL ownership, closely followed by the likes of Jamie Vardy (£10.2m), Timo Werner (£9.5m), Hakim Ziyech (£8.3m) Andy Robertson (£7.1m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m).

To own a combination of four of these players will cost FPL managers between £29.3m and £44.2m.

When you take into account the ownership of these premium assets, they will help to protect your rank but do very little in the way of improving it unless they are wearing the captain’s armband.

At pushing half of your FPL budget to own Salah, Kane, Fernandes and De Bruyne, we need to make cheaper differential assets work for us in order to ensure that we are gaining ground.

The Complete Guide to Scout’s tips and advice for FPL Gameweek 5 2

At the start of the FPL season, choosing the right differentials can be a minefield because of the lack of ‘form’. We therefore look for cut-price assets who are likely to start every week in teams that are strong bets to return goals and/or clean sheets and have a decent run of fixtures.

It is an astute (and very lucky!) FPL manager who manages to get all of these differential picks correct before the opening Gameweek of the season. Even if you managed to start the campaign with a well-picked set of differentials, post-Gameweek 9 might be the right time to re-look at whether these players are still the ones offering the best value for money.

Differentials (anyone owned by under 10% of the game, for the purposes of this piece) can be the players who will make the biggest change to overall rank and mini-league positioning, especially the longer the season goes on and when a ‘template’ begins to form. They are the ones who often are the difference between a green and a red arrow by the end of the Gameweek.

We are now in the position of having nine Premier League matches under our belts as well as multiple Champions League, Europa League and League Cup games. This wealth of knowledge now gives us more to go on when picking out our differentials – so who look to be the best options between now and Christmas?

Fixtures

The power of the differential

Above: Season Ticker sorted by difficulty between Gameweek 10 and Gameweek 14, which is the final Gameweek before Christmas

I’ve spent most of this season saying that looking at the fixtures is less important than the form of the players. This is definitely true when we assess players like Son, Kane, Vardy, Calvert-Lewin etc who have returned points against difficult opposition and show no signs of that form ending regardless of who they are playing.

However, for the differentials, the fixtures are an important consideration. These players are key for rank rises and as such you want to give yourself the best opportunity possible for them to return. With differential picks, then, a combination of form and fixtures is key.

Newcastle United sit pretty at the top of the ticker but with three losses in the last five Gameweeks and a lack of clean sheets (none since Gameweek 1) and goals (four in the last five Gameweeks), they aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders. With the exception of Callum Wilson (£6.5m) and Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.3m), none of their assets are owned by more than 2.7% of the game – but there doesn’t look to be much upside in plumping for a Magpie or two.

Wilson is ranked ninth for total points scored so far this season (although three of his six goals have come from penalties) but we don’t see another Newcastle player until Karl Darlow (£5.0m) in 48th spot. Even then, when you compare Darlow to the other goalkeepers in the game, he ranks at 10th and thus there are definitely better options. Hence why for differentials, a combination of form and fixtures is vital.

There isn’t often a time where you can talk about Manchester City in an article on differentials. They sit nicely on the Season Ticker and have a delightful run of fixtures which should result in big points hauls for their assets.

Their form has been challenging this season, with defeats to Leicester and Spurs, draws with Liverpool, Leeds and West Ham, as well as unconvincing 1-0 wins against Arsenal and Sheffield United. They haven’t been setting the world on fire – both in attack or in defence.

However, there is no denying that City are a quality football team and with the return from injury of key players such as Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) and Sergio Aguero (£10.3m), surely an upturn in performances, results and goals is long overdue.

Form

When the fixtures for the 2020/21 season were announced, we as FPL managers were quick to spot the nice start to the season that Spurs had and the horrible-looking swing ahead of Gameweek 9.

Kane and Son have been the go-to players at Spurs for Fantasy bosses but if you are prepared to follow the path of logic that suggests that their form continues through these challenging fixtures, then their other assets could prove to be value differentials.

The likes of Gareth Bale (£9.5m), Lucas Moura (£6.8m) and Sergio Reguilon (£5.6m) have the potential to return good FPL points this season, although there is perhaps too much rotation risk at present with the first two.

Likewise, Chelsea have a mixed batch of fixtures between now and the festive season. Again, the Blues’ form suggests that choosing a Chelsea differential could be a very wise investment.

Mendy and Thiago boosting Chelsea defence's FPL appeal ahead of decent fixture run

Whilst many of the Chelsea players fall outside of the differentials remit – the likes of Werner, Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) and Ziyech, for example – there are options that could allow you to benefit from Chelsea’s form without the expense.

Both Mason Mount (£6.8m) and Edouard Mendy (£5.1m) look like great options. Owning Mendy allows you to save £0.3m versus owning Zouma and a whole million versus owning Chilwell. Granted, there is no attacking upside from Mendy but he has returned four clean sheets in his five Premier League games so far and banked a save point in the Gameweek 6 match against Manchester United.

Best differential options for Gameweeks 10-14

Aston Villa

Making Sense of the Chaos

Aston Villa have been one of the surprise packages of the season so far. Whilst their talisman Jack Grealish (£7.5m) is owned by 40.8% of the game and Tyrone Mings (£5.3m) and Emiliano Martinez (£4.8m) come in at 13.3% and 27.5% respectively, the rest of the Aston Villa squad still classify as differentials. Ollie Watkins (£6.1m), John McGinn (£5.5m), Ezri Konsa (£4.7m), Matt Targett (£4.5m) and Matthew Cash (£5.0m) all look to offer both good value for money in their positions and carry excellent potential for points per million spent.

Watkins has returned in two of Aston Vila’s last three fixtures as well as registering two double-digit hauls in the opening eight Gameweeks.

Defensively, Aston Villa have four clean sheets so far this season – that’s half of the games that they have played – and both Konsa and Targett have registered attacking returns, so there is good potential upside on their defensive picks, too. With games to come against West Ham, Newcastle, Wolves, Burnley and West Brom, there is plenty of potential upside to the differential picks at Aston Villa both in terms of the defenders as well as in attack.

Liverpool

Its been a difficult couple of weeks at Liverpool with injuries to key players as well as positive coronavirus tests. However, the injury to Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) opens up the possibility of a differential Liverpool defender.

At under £4.0m, Neco Williams (£3.9m) is one of the cheapest assets in the game and usually would be bench fodder at best as he sits behind Alexander-Arnold in the right-back pecking order. However, with Klopp suggesting that Liverpool might have to manage without Alexander-Arnold for a little longer than originally planned, Williams could offer a lovely alternative for this period up until Christmas.

Many FPL managers, myself included, feared that without Virgil Van Dijk (£6.3m) and Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool would concede goals. But the return of Joel Matip (£5.4m) and Fabinho (£5.4m) saw big improvements in Liverpool’s defensive display against Leicester in Gameweek 9. With a Gameweek 10 match against Brighton, who have struggled for goals of late, followed by matches against Wolves and Fulham, Liverpool could register a few more clean sheets in the next few weeks.

Manchester City

The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 3

  • Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) – 1.2% owned
  • Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) – 4.6% owned
  • Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m) – 1.2% owned
  • Kyle Walker (£6.1m) – 8.7% owned
  • Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) – 2.9% owned
  • Joao Cancelo (£5.5m) – 3.1% owned
  • Ruben Dias (£5.5m) – 2.0% owned

These are the kinds of ownership percentages that we rarely see for Manchester City assets. The likes of Sterling and Aguero seldom class as differentials and as such, there has never been a better time to invest in terms of the potential upside that they may yield. Whilst they do not offer the same bargain-basement price tag than some of the other differentials discussed do, they could be worth the investment if you can make the budget work.

With games against Burnley, Fulham, Manchester United, West Brom and Southampton this side of Christmas, City assets should be guaranteed points. However, the attacking players have not been as prolific as they normally are and in order to own them, it probably means shipping the likes of Salah, Kane, Son or Fernandes.

Owning one of Cancelo or Dias feels like a cheap way into Man City for the clean sheets that we expect them to keep – and if you plump for Cancelo, the potential for attacking returns, too.

Manchester United

Much like the City assets, United’s Harry Maguire (£5.4m) isn’t a budget-helpful differential. There is nevertheless the potential for some decent returns from the Red Devils’ captain over the next few weeks. Maguire has registered two clean sheets in his seven Premier League games this season, as well as one goal, one assist and a bonus point.

With clubs that like to attack in Southampton, West Ham and Man City up next, perhaps Gameweek 13 would be the time to properly consider United’s defensive assets.

West Ham

Haller impresses for West Ham as recovering Antonio waits in the wings

  • Michail Antonio (£6.2m) – owned by 2.1%
  • Pablo Fornals (£6.5m) – owned by 2.1%
  • Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) – owned by 2.2%
  • Aaron Cresswell (£5.1m) – owned by 9.4%
  • Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) – owned by 3.1%
  • Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m) – owned by 2.1%
  • Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) – owned by 2.0%
  • Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) – owned by 3.1%

West Ham, much like Aston Villa, have been one of the biggest surprise packages of the season so far. They have returned unexpected three points against Wolves and Leicester, as well as draws with Spurs and Manchester City. As a result of their performances so far and the upturn in fixtures, West Ham assets are high on the priority list.

Antonio’s hopeful return to the West Ham line-up in Gameweek 10 will only bolster the Hammers’ appeal.

Fabianski is the highest-scoring goalkeeper in the game and his performances make not only him but the West Ham defenders great options moving forward, especially when you couple this with the attacking potential shown by Cresswell and, to a lesser extent, Coufal.

Picking a West Ham differential allows you to save much-needed money for the FPL budget but also hints at a huge potential upside. With Cresswell and Soucek in my team, I’m more than happy to be doubled up on the Hammers.

Final thoughts

Every season it’s the differential picks for me that are the difference between an okay season and a great one. These differential players are the ones I show no loyalty to. When form and fixtures are on their side, I hold and play, week-in, week-out. Once that form ends and the purple patch is over, I have none of the concerns about moving them on as I do with the premium, highly owned players.

So far this season the Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.6m) and Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) double-up, Cresswell and Soucek pairing, Watkins and Che Adams (£5.9m) have all been great differentials. For most of these players I’ll continue to hold them but the pull to the differential City defenders, in particular Cancelo, is strong and so he will likely be my transfer in this week.

However, Antonio could be a game-changer on his return from injury if West Ham keep up the form they have already shown this season. A move to the Hammers frontman is definitely on my priority list over the next few weeks.

      I got Dcl on my WC

      DCL plus cash better than Werner who will get rotated

    6. liner
      • 4 Years

      Why now to sell Werner when he starts to show his potential? Imo, he is better pick now than DCL

    7. It’s gonna Ben Mee

      Still very good value. I’ve owned him since GW 2. However, the fixtures are turning GW 12. Regardless I’d say go for it.

    Any risk of Salah benching after today's performance?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      not a chance imo

    2. JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I mean, Jota Mane and Firmino have to start. But it is Salah

    3. F4L
      • 6 Years

      Not was pulled to be rested ; Mane the man to rotate it seems.

  4. fridge

    Any ideas for what to do with this lot? I want to get Salah in but will wait a week. Could prioritize Zaha and Jiminez out?

    1FT, 1.7 ITB

    McCarthy
    Chilwell. Taylor. Lamptey
    Son. Bruno. Ziyech. Zaha
    Kane. DCL. Jiminez

    4.0. McCarthy. Dallas. 4.0

    1. AlternativeB
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Almost the same team as you (-Ziyech, Jimmi, Taylor). JUST did Zaha too Jota. Waiting to see eventually if I cave in Kane --> Vardy as well (have 0FT now)

    2. abhirup780
      • 6 Years

      Pool zero shot on target

    3. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Grealish--> Jota?

      Yes or No?

        No

    4. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Do Mane owners feel as though he could get benched at the weekend? I was really set on putting the armband on him but with the big Ajax game on Tuesday, worried about his mins. Just wanted to see what some ppl think.

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Or will Pool want a big reaction? Brighton imo is a perfect fixture for a reaction.

      2. Jimmers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        They need to find form before the Ajax game

      3. Dirty Harry
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I'm concerned. I have Salah as well and thinking maybe I could drop him. Though my team is so trash I have issues with Lamptey Charlie Taylor and Podence. No Bruno. No Man City.

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Taylor isn’t an issue. Burnley are good defensively. Podence is tho imo. If I thought Mane would play the full 90 and Liverpool had qualified tonight, he would be SUCH a good pick for the weekend and beyond.

      4. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Totally. He's the only one of the three that played 90 ; Jota, Firmino and Salah to start Saturday.

      5. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Probably overthinking it. If I were Klopp, play your best team, hopefully get 3-0 up and then take mane / salah off. But otherwise resting mane or salah against Brighton, and then losing that game, there would be huge questions why, so he wouldn't do that.

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Yeah, I think Mane coming off at 70 minutes after Liverpool smash them is probably more likely.

    5. Daniel - NoFH, NoBB, NoTC, …

      3. GreennRed

        Not sharp but Pool were outplayed. Gametime tonight should benefit him for Brighton game.

      I am scared from a surprise KDB/Salah rise without being predicted. My budget is really tight for future plans.

      Do we think a surprise price changes are possible before Friday?

      1. Brehmeren
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        No chance

    8. The Hunt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      KDB currently on a glidepath to 122 FPL points. I'd most certainly buy that number if somehow the spread bookies offered it up but consider this: he was priced up at 10, 10.5, 10, 10 & 9.5 in his preceding five seasons at Manchester City so is he really worth 11.6m now? I'd say most certainly that overall he isn't but does having Burnley, Fulham & West Brom at home in the next 4 game weeks make him worth even more in the short term? I'm just a little doubtful.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        he has 2 great fixtures to prove doubters wrong and i think he will

      2. Tomas_brolin
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Me too. Just get a city defender of you want. Me I’m getting PVA instead

      3. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Is the second, maybe best player in the league worth his price? Really? Man City have never not started firing in the last 10 years.

        Nothing really to doubt. Had injuries too so far this season. Not having a striker is a big loss. Like it was for Spurs just before the PL shutdown in March.

        1. The Hunt
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Well, he most certainly hasn't justified his price so far and I think there's enough element of doubt surrounding his team's form at the moment to make me baulk at forking out 11.6m for him.

      4. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Not sure where you're getting 122 projected points from lol. Hugely doubt he will finish with that. Id actually argue he's a bargain price this year. He beat Salah for total points and points per game last year, playing almost every game, and yet salah was priced 12m and KDB 11.5m. Price is subjective though, he may not currently be worth 11.5m based on current form, but your buying the potential. The potential upside with Kdb is massive, he's proven that season after season, consistent points scorer, team talisman, penalty taker and chance creating machine. The problem mainly lies with city's other players not finishing golden chances but I'm happy to take that risk because 1 good fixture is all it takes.

      I can’t see any way to get a slice of the Leic & City action into my team - especially as I’m not prepared to let 2 form players in Son & Kane go

      KDB out of my budget given i also own Salah. Cheaper city assets not nailed. The only transfer i can see is Zaha to Tielemans. Bamford to Vardy is possible but it means i add another 5.0mid alongside Bissouma. Non runner

      Open to suggestions - cheers.

      Cresswell Chilwell Robertson

          Can't have them all, and you've got expensive players in all positions. If you're not willing to part with anyone like Son, Kane, Salah or Robbo then you just have to do without

        All I needed was an Atletico win for a £900 return on a £30 bet, absolute bell ends.

        Good news is the Mighty Sky Blues beat Cardiff, so it's not all bad news.

        Is anyone considering skipping KDB and Salah this GW and going with Jota instead?

          You’d forego a definite starter over a potential non starter? Interesting.

        3. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Not considering either of them but would consider Jota for Foden if I had certainty of nailed-onness.

        4. Super Saints

          Skipping KDB and Salah as too many fires to put out

          Yep and not eeven overly worried about it. Think Jota can match their points.

          Neco had an awful game, hard to see him getting many starts.

        I'm overwhelmed by the options...

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Salah Bruno KDB Son Grealish

        2. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Bruno Ziyech Son Salah are four, fifth is up for grabs for anyone in form really

        3. Neevesy
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Bruno, Rash, Son, KDB, Salah.

          Not sure you can afford them all though.

          1. Neevesy
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I've got KDB, Rash, Grealish, Bruno, Joya btw

            Yes, Son over Jota, but there are issues like fixtures and money atm.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Grealish Ziyech KDB Bruno Son - this is mine and I like it a lot

        5. Forgetmeknot
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I have KBD, Bruno, Ziyech, Grealish, Jota and I think one of the last 2 will change to Salah after this week

        6. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Bruno, Rash, Salah, KdB, Jota (I don't have KdB since DCL and Vardy are cheaper, look good and KdB + MCI have let me down once already).

      8. Super Saints

        Going with this at the weekend, is it ok? Zaha > Jota.

        Does anybody know of Zaha can play against Newcastle!?
        When was his test?
        If not - I will transfer for Jota tonight before the price rise

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          This is exactly what I want to know. Footballers don't have to isolate for 14 days after testing positive....

        2. AlternativeB

            Did that transfer right now... Going to bed

          • Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I guess no-one knows so I'm going to make the transfer. Let's be honest Jota will easily outscore Zaha if he gets gametime

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Sorry guys just one more question. Is Antonio and Bamford too cheap up top with a strong midfield?
          Midfield would be:
          Salah, KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, Grealish

        4. bennyp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Is Jesus a bad pick with Kun back? Less minutes but his form has been pretty good.

          Can currently afford Jesus + KBD/Sterling....

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I wouldn't go anywhere near Jesus with Kun back.

          I'm quite relief that Mo seemed a bit shaky. I can now buy him in later.

          1. Super Saints

          Anyone looking at moving on from Chillwell??

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            No

          2. Noah’s Ark
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Or Cresswell. I can’t see a WHM cs in next 3/5 at least.

            1. Hazz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Cresswell I'd feel better about losing. May obviously get the odd assist, but he hasn't been getting 'em even with the last few. The reason I got Coufal over Cresswell is in part due to the fact it feels far nice to leave a 4.5m on the bench vs. a 5m+ defender.

              Chillwell is fantastic. Always getting on the end of balls from Ziyech & James.

              1. Noah’s Ark
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Yeah that’s my thoughts also. It’s just I only have .4 itb and want a city defender. Cresswell only allows me to afford a 5.5 def where as Chillwell allows me Laporte who I really want.

            Ferran Torres or Jota?

            1. Babelcopter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              Jota

              1. cravencottage

                • 9 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Torres passes the eye test, but probably Jota

          • Rinseboy
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Best replacement for Saiss? Any value really.

            Already got Robbo and Chilwell. Others are Mitchell and Lamptey.

            Was set on Cancello but with 2 other non playing defenders is he too risky?

            1. Catastrophe

            Those getting Jota in, are you doing tonight to beat the price rise? Looks like he is 100.4% although I'm sure last night he dropped a few % at the cut-off?

            1. Super Saints
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              He did just that but I don't know why. Loads doing it tonight so will probably go up

            2. AzzaroMax99
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I just bought him. He will probably rise and Zaha will fall in price so it is a no-brainer.

              I sensed on Monday that Bielsa suddenly realised that his team couldn't keep on conceding four goals every game so this could be a tight one.

            3. NateDogsCats
                1 month, 24 days ago

                He's been very poor the past few games. Even if he hauls it won't bother me much as I've given him enough time just on the eye test
