FPL differentials the key figures as West Brom host Brighton

It is the Fantasy Premier League differentials on offer in the second match of Double Gameweek 26.

Despite playing just once over the next few days, Brighton are the more popular outfit in this match, Lewis Dunk (£4.9m) starting the match with 5.6% ownership.

Robert Sánchez (£4.5m) is another leading figure as the Seagulls travel to West Bromwich Albion although on 3.0% of Fantasy managers currently rely on the goalkeeper.

2.8% are still invested in Neal Maupay (£6.1m) who leads the line today, accompanied by an out-of-position Leandro Trossard (£5.7m).

It looks as if Graham Potter has gone with a back-four for the visit to the Hawthorns, with Dan Burn (£4.2m) and Joël Veltman (£4.3m) in the left and right-back positions either side of Dunk and Ben White (£4.4m).

Meanwhile, Matheus Pereira (£5.4m) is the most fashionable starting Baggies option today sat in 1.8% of teams.

Ahead of facing two fixtures, the midfielder has a goal and assist in his last two at home.

Mbaye Diagne (£6.0m) has been a much-discussed asset in the build-up to Double Gameweek 26 and starts up-front for the fourth-successive Premier League match.

He is inside the top-four among all players for minutes per expected goal involvement (xGI) over the last four matches but only 0.8% of Fantasy managers are invested in the forward.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) is also on the radar even though just 0.6% of managers possess the Arsenal loanee.

He is deployed out of position once again today, operating on the right-hand flank of West Brom’s attacking midfield trio.

Double Gameweek 26 Line-ups

West Bromwich Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Johnstone; C Townsend, Bartley, O’Shea, Furlong; Yokuslu, Gallagher; M Phillips, M Pereira, Maitland-Niles; Diagne.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-4-2): R Sánchez; Burn, Dunk, White, Veltman; Connolly, Mac Allister, Bissouma, Groß; Maupay, Trossard.

Double Gameweek 26 so far…

Another Double Gameweek, another attacking haul for Manchester City’s centre-backs.

João Cancelo (£6.1m) watched Saturday’s lunch-time kick-off in dismay as Pep Guardiola benched him for the first time since Gameweek 21.

And his absence from the team, which lasted the whole game, made goals for Ruben Dias (£6.1m) and John Stones (£5.2m) all the more painful for the Portuguese international’s 26.6% ownership.

Cancelo was named on Manchester City’s bench alongside Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) and Phil Foden (£6.1m), although the latter made it on for the second period.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m) were the providers for the Citizens’ two goals while Ilkay Gundogan (£6.2m) continued his run of matches without an attacking return to three before coming off in the 89th minute.

    I watched livescore add saw that Brighton had missed a penalty. I first thought that I just had my first penalty save in 12 years of playing this game, but noooo. Did he blast it over? 🙁

    Bricking it having sold Bamford for a hit and benched Raph/Dallas.

      Have Martinez, Raph and Watkins in this game.

  10. deathcabofdevil

    Slightly incorrect phrasing. They wanted to say Watkins will put Leeds to bed.

  11. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Konsa 15 pointer here would be gold. No Leeds in my XI is very scary

    Why do Leeds Cresswell & Hammers Cresswell not have their initial infront of their name on FPL? I thought that's what they did when players had the same surname?

    1. deathcabofdevil
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Only if they play in the same team.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Sure there have been cases of players in different teams also...

        1. deathcabofdevil
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Nope. Only in the same team, else there will be too many of them.

    Rubbish Twitter rumours in the mud.

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      To be fair he came on here to say he was holding Watkins and thought the rumour was fishy

  18. Mr. O'Connell
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Who's gonna miss this one then?

  19. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Johnstone will save it.

  20. Hy liverpool
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Welbeck vs johnstone

  21. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Will Gross take again?

  22. Original - Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Watkins owners think he's going to score big just because he's in the team. 😀

  23. AC/DC AFC
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Another Brighton penalty...

    Saved?!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Looked like he played the ball to a large extent.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Welbeck

  26. The Senate
    • 3 Years

    If that penalty stands it's as much of a joke as the disallowed goal

  27. MoSalad
    • 8 Years

    Johnstone clean sheet confirmed surely can’t believe it!!!!!!
