Spot the Differential

Barkley’s goal threat makes him a value alternative to Grealish in Villa midfield

Gameweek 22 is almost upon us after a quick turnaround, so let’s have a quick look at some more differential options for the midweek fixtures and beyond.

This time, we’ve selected low-owned picks at Aston Villa, Leeds United and Chelsea, all of whom found the back of the net last weekend.

As always, to qualify, the player must have a Fantasy Premier League ownership of 5% or less at the time of writing.

Ross Barkley

  • FPL ownership: 0.8%
  • Price: £5.9m
  • GW22-26 fixtures: WHU | ARS | bha | LEI | lee 

Ross Barkley (£5.9m) returned to Aston Villa’s starting XI last month, having missed seven league games through injury.

Despite initially looking a bit off the pace, he is now back to full fitness and announced his return to form with a goal in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Southampton.

The 27-year-old got his Villa Park career off to a flyer when he scored in his first couple of games, but hobbled off just seconds into Gameweek 9 with a hamstring injury. In his absence, manager Dean Smith moved talisman Jack Grealish (£7.7m) into more of a central role, with Anwar El Ghazi (£5.6m) and Bertrand Traoré (£5.9m) on the flanks. Villa lost just two games during that period, and the wide players impressed, but Barkley was reinstated as soon as he returned to fitness, highlighting his importance to the team.

Since making his debut, Barkley has created 2.24 chances per 90 minutes, which ranks 12th amongst all midfielders who have played for over 500 minutes. That is some way behind Grealish’s league-leading total of 3.36, but he is shooting more often than his colleague, taking 2.81 shots per 90 minutes, compared to his captain’s 2.21.

Villa now sit ninth in the table with games in hand over most teams above them. The fixtures are appealing too, especially their away schedule, which sees them take on Brighton and Hove Albion, Leeds United, Newcastle United and Sheffield United before the end of March. That’s important, given that only Manchester United and Leicester City have taken more points on the road so far this season.

Grealish remains the headline pick in Villa’s midfield, but if funds are tighter, Barkley is a viable alternative and could offer real value in the coming weeks.

Jack Harrison

  • FPL ownership: 2.1%
  • Price: £5.4m
  • GW22-26 fixtures: EVE | CRY | ars | wol | AVL

Jack Harrison (£5.4m) has been in fine form of late, with three goals in his last five league appearances.

Following his strike at Leicester City, he has now been directly involved in nine goals this season, and the numbers suggest it won’t be long before he’s into double figures.

The 24-year-old, who is on loan from Manchester City, has already created 36 chances for his team-mates this term. Amongst midfielders, only Grealish, Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m), Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m), Mason Mount (£6.8m) and Pedro Neto (£5.8m) have managed more. His goal threat is on the up too, having registered more goal attempts, shots in the box and big chances than colleague Raphinha (£5.4m) over the last six matches.

His positioning sees him supply Leeds’ width on the left, but after Leicester switched to a 3-4-3 in the second-half on Sunday, Marcelo Bielsa responded by moving Harrison into the forward press. That in turn meant he found himself in more central areas than usual, which is something to keep an eye on going forward. It’s also worth noting that he is a firm favourite of Bielsa and is rarely omitted from the starting XI. In fact, he’s now played the full 90 minutes in seven of his last eight league appearances.

Harrison is one of the Whites’ most important players and now, in a really good moment, could be an effective differential for Gameweek 22 and beyond.

Marcos Alonso

  • FPL ownership: 1.6%
  • Price: £5.6m
  • GW22-26 fixtures: tot | shu | NEW | sou | MUN

Marcos Alonso (£5.6m) returned to Chelsea’s starting XI under new manager Thomas Tuchel on Sunday, and took full advantage of the opportunity with a goal and 14 FPL points.

Making his first league start since September, the 30-year-old operated as a left-sided wing-back in a 3-4-3 shape, a role he has previously excelled in for the Blues. He finished the match with two shots in the box, six penalty area touches and three crosses, while amongst team-mates, only Mount had more touches in the final third. It’s also worth noting he took two of Chelsea’s four corners during the game.

As we pointed out last week when tipping up Antonio Rüdiger (£4.5m), change is inevitable under a new manager, especially with Tuchel’s reputation for tactical flexibility, but if they are to continue using a similar shape in the coming weeks, it raises the appeal of their wing-backs, who will naturally get into more advanced positions in the box. 

A move for Alonso this week does carry risk, knowing that Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) is also pushing for a start, but there is a lot of upside too, given the Spaniard’s potential for big hauls. Will he now become first-choice? It’s impossible to say, but if Tuchel does opt to regularly use a back-three system, he’s certainly put forward a strong case.

    Who to make way for Grealish?

    Raphinha or Gundo?

    Feel like Salah, Bruno & Son are set and forgets.

    1. built_this_city
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      i am tempted by gundo to grealish but i feel like city are gona get some penalties in the next few weeks.

    2. Neves say Neves
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Raph but next week

    3. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Very tough. I like both options and both have good fixtures. I would probably delay the move 1GW

  2. LLoris
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    I have 1 transfers. Which is the best. Soucek is playing atm in place of Vardy.

    A) Vardy out for Antonio
    B) Vardy Son out for Antonio and Moh
    C) Save the transfer
    D) Other

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      A

    2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      A

    3. alsybach
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Vardy out for firmino!

    4. ZakyJ
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I'm in similar situ with Kane. Its between Antonio and Watkins for me.

      I probably prefer Antonio but Watkins has games in hand and will be in DGWs

  3. Neves say Neves
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Chilwell > TAA/Robbo/Justin/other
    Or keep and start him? (Dallas on bench)

    1. Machine_Gunnerz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I think do the Chilwell to TAA. Surely a CS against Brighton. But next game is city...

    2. alsybach
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Not Justin

    3. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Can't see Chilwell getting his place back after Alonso's last game. Too much uncertainty with CHE assets. I would transfer him out. Not keen on the options you have suggested

  4. Tshelby
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Stand out solution seems like it's gonna be A

    A) Chilwell -> Cresswell
    B) Alioski -> Dallas
    C) Adams -> Watkins
    D) Chilwell -> Justin
    E) Something else

    My team

    Martinez
    Chilwell, Dias, Stones, Coufal, Alioski
    Grealish, Salah, Bruno, sterling, Soucek
    Adams, Antonio, Bamford

    2ft
    0.5 itb

    1. Neves say Neves
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      You’ve already got triple whu unfortunately. Go for D then?

      1. Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Ah yeah wow didn't realize that! Yeah makes D a lot easier to do

    2. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      C

  5. Tonyawesome69 FH36
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    How is the team looking? Is the bench in the correct order?

    0FT 6.7itb
    Martinez
    Stones Cancelo Digne
    Salah Bruno Gundo Raphinha
    Bamford DCL Antonio
    (Johnstone Soucek Holding Cresswell)

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      gtg

  6. damiang2233
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Son & Foden to Salah & Soucek for -4?

    1. LLoris
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      ah in kinda the same position I was gonna do Vardy son for Moh and antonio

      1. damiang2233
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah that could be worth it too. Hard to know though

    2. alsybach
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Do you think Foden won’t start?

      1. damiang2233
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Not sure but hasnt been producing so hard to keep him.

    3. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Just the Salah move

  7. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Morning all. 1) Save FT? 2) Son bench is crazy right or correct?

    Johnstone
    Stones - Justin - Dias
    Son - Salah - Bruno - Gundo - Soucek
    Bam - Antonio - DCL

    (McCarthy) Son - Coufal - Alioski

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      You 2 x Son's. I would bench Soucek.

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Haha oops take starting Son out

      2. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Been scarred by benching soucek then week after starting him and benching Bam

    2. Kuzser
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Lol, same story below. With Spurs being so impotent in attack and decent Chelsea side ahead I don’t think Son benching is insane

  8. Kuzser
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Thinking of getting Grealish for Lookman with my FT, but who would you bench in this case:
    1) Dcl
    2) Laca
    3) Antonio
    4) Son
    5) save ft

    I know it sounds ridiculous, but leaning towards benching Son who plays Chelsea

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Would probably save FT

    2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      5 - Lookman can get something from LEI

    3. Kuzser
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Thanks both

  9. alsybach
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Do we think that Foden will start this week or would you do
    Foden—> saka
    Foden—> zaha
    Foden—>Maddison
    Foden—> Barnes
    Foden—> gundo

    Or save the free transfer and put Foden or soucek on the bench?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Foden to Barnes or Zaha sounds good

    2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Save and start Foden

    3. Henrik Larsson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I like Foden > Saka and thinking of doing the same move. I don't have enough in the bank to consider the other more expensive options though.

      1. alsybach
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        And if you did...?

        1. Henrik Larsson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I'd maybe go Barnes.

          Really depends on your team as it might make sense to hold onto Foden if you dont have another two city players already.

  10. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Martinez
    Chilwell* - Cancelo - Dallas
    Salah - Sterling - Bruno - Grealish - Gundo*
    DCL - Bamford
    -----------------
    Coufal - Brewster - Ferguson

    1FT, £2.5itb

    I can just about get away with saving my FT this week, couldn't I? Players marked with * are potential benchings/rested.

    1. alsybach
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I’m not living that bench, I would use a transfer or two if I were you!
      That team is not gtg!

      1. alsybach
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        *loving

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Ferguson to Targett is something I was considering? Wanted to have some FTs in the bag in preparation for the DGW26 so looking to save where possible

          1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Doing this move will prevent you going with Martinez, Grealish and Watkins when Villa have DGWs from their postponed games

            1. Stormbringer22
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Good point.

    2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I would sort the bench out - Ferguson to Holding

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks, will consider it

  11. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Why is it always players I wait until deadline to get rise in price but the ones I get early don't rise?

    That Grealish price rise this morning was a real shock to me.

    1. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      The price rise was on mate - he's been rising the last few days. What is a surprise is how Martinez hasn't risen....he seems to have been hovering around 100% for days now!

  12. fpork
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Got 1,9 ITB and 2FT.

    Johnstone (Fabianski)
    Dias, Cancelo, Dallas, Justin (Chilwell)
    Gündogan, Salah, Grealish, Fernandes (Lookman)
    Bamford, Antonio (Vardy)

    1) Vardy->Watkins (allows for Lookman->Son next week)
    2) Chilwell->Targett (Villa defense cover, and frees some funds)
    3) Other?

    1. TheBiffas
        3 months, 4 days ago

        1 + 2

        1. fpork
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          In previous years I would probably have gone for 1+2, but I feel like transfers are very valuable this year.

      • fpork
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Feels strange to continue to keep Vardy, but I guess I have other players playing. Also, keeping Vardy allows me to monitor him and Kane.

    2. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Concerned about assured starts with my defensive 5....

      Shaw Dias Stones Struik Mitchel

      Thinking one of Struik or Mitchel need to go, but who? Leaning towards letting Mitchel go with rumoured PVA transfer before deadline having not come to pass.

      Its between Holding and Rudiger who I transfer in, but given that I am looking for security of starts and leaning towards Holding.

      1. TheBiffas
          3 months, 4 days ago

          yep sounds good

        • Boly Would
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I think Struijk will keep playing until either Koch or Llorente are fit. He's improving and Bielsa seems to like him.
          Mitchell to Holding sounds good

      2. leeboy104
          3 months, 4 days ago

          It's not expected that Reece James will somehow regain his place is it? In that case, last on bench behind coufal in case of 1 point cameo?

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Your reasoning is sound imo.

        • BlueEddy
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Who to bench?
          a) Digne (lee)
          b) Rudiger (tot)

          1. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            B

            Rudiger easily.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            3 months, 4 days ago

            Rudiger almost guaranteed a clean sheet vs Spurs if he plays

            Digne almost guaranteed to concede vs Leeds

            Not the forgone conclusion it seems - merits in going with Rudiger imho

            It does leave you exposed to a Digne attacking return..

            But Digne has been *incredibly* lucky to get his 6 assists so far - from just 1.9 XA - a 400% overperformance

            0.2 XG on the season suggests he doesn’t make a habit of getting great scoring chances either

            Food for thought

            1. BlueEddy
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              I was leaning towards Rudiger and I think the stats you have provided show that. Many thanks for your reply. Digne will be first sub so if Rudiger doesn't play then, he'll come in. I think Digne and Rudiger have the same chance this GW of attacking returns and with Mourinho so negative, I see a 0-0 on the cards.

            2. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              You seem to really dislike Spurs attack this week. It's still Son. He can score against anyone and does better against the big teams too.

              1. BlueEddy
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Son is Son and it is true he can score against anyone and all it takes is one rapid counter-attack, but they were awful against Brighton, so negative. Can you really see Spurs doing anything against Chelsea with Tuchel in charge?

                1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 4 days ago

                  Yep my thoughts exactly - Chelsea seem to have locked into quite a solid unit, granted it was against two of the most negative teams in the league in Wolves & Burnley - but they're about to play an even more negative side in a Kane-less Mourinho anti-football fest

                  Son could nick a goal in any game though, he is one of the best forwards in world football - no doubts there - but it would be exactly that - nicking a goal, rather than a flurry of big chances imo

                  1. BlueEddy
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    Chelsea will hog the ball. 79% possession vs Wolves and 71% vs Burnley. Spurs will sit deep. I can see it being a bore fest to be honest! Let's hope I am proved wrong! Thanks for all the replies!!!

          Which transfer worth doing for free??

          Was all set on capping Sterling, thinking Salah might be the safer pick even though Sterling you would have thought has had his rest. Who's going where?

            I am reluctantly on Raz(C) but waiting news on Mane. If he is likely to not feature, I will probably cap Salah. Klopp has a presser later

            Thanks gents. I'm thinking a Mane-less Liverpool is a better bet to go Salah. At least he'll play!

          If Mané is declared fit would you consider him over salah or am I over thinking ?

          Can bring either in

            Salah looks to be in form and on Pens. Don't overcomplicate

            Any news on this Kane lad? still worth to transfer him out, even if i would lose lots of value in that lad? (wc still available)

              Coin toss for A & B

              would start Bamford

            Play two:
            1) Justin
            2) Dallas
            3) Targett

              Tough. Targett bench reluctantly.

            That Son price fall was nice.
            I can now afford Soucek >> Son with one transfer.
            Will hold off though until 23.

                Yeh that 0.1 prevented me taking another hit to bring him in last week. Sometimes it’s a blessing.

              Son the standout cap for 23 but if Spurs have a poor game against Chelsea would that change your mind? Or is WBA still a good game to target?

              1. The 12th Man
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Long term think it’s a decent move with a likely double in 26.
                Going to try and hold off using a WC until after 29.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            So who’s everyone got the armband on this fine morning ... and do they think they’ll hold up to deadline?

            Sterling (c) and Salah (vc) for me.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Same as you, but if Mane is still injured I will probably swap around and go Salah(C)

            2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Salah (C) Cancelo (VC)

            3. Mr. O'Connell
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              I've got 1 assist in my last 10 captain picks. I literally have no idea. Probably Salah just to ruin him for everyone else.

            • 7 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Are either of these worth doing for free?

            Son > Grealish
            Maddison > Grealish

            1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Not this GW. Son has WBA in 23 and is the standout cap.

            Anyone know if Mourinho Presser today? Need to know availability of Kane in the next 2 weeks.

          • Echoes
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Assuming Mane is fit and there's a chance Salah may get benched, do you captain Sterling or still go with Mo?

              1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                I would go with Sterling if Mane is fit to remove that uncertainty.

            • The 12th Man
              • 7 Years

              Expect Digne to be back on the wing against Leeds with Godfrey at Left Back.
              Playing 4 centrebacks against attacking teams seems to be the plan.

                Like a lot of people, benching headache this week:

                Grealish, son, gundogan, Salah, Fernandes
                Bamford, DCL, Antonio

                Genuinely thinking of benching son. Am I mad? What's the consensus on here? Thanks in advance.

                  Exact same problem. No idea what to do

                  Who ever you pick it will go wrong.

                  Maybe bench Gundogan from those. There's a chance that he plays deeper and Burnley knows how to defend.

                  Spurs seems to be out of form too and Mou might have some problems with his RB players? He played Sissoko ahead of Aurier and Doherty against Brighton so sound that there is some kind of Mourinho effect going in Spurs team...

                Have Kane and 1FT

                Do I

                A) Save transfer and play Soucek
                B Kane to Antonio/Laca/Watkins

                  I was on the same boat. Bought Antonio.

                  I'd go B and go Watkins as he'll have a double coming up.

                  1. ZakyJ
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 4 days ago

                    Yeah I know, but I probably slightly prefer Antonio apart from this which puts them dead evens. Do we know when the DGW will likely happen?
