Spot the Differential

Set-piece duties and three assists in last four warrant DGW32 punt on Moura

Gameweek 32 is almost upon us which gives us an opportunity to have a look at some more differential options.

This time, we’ve selected low-owned picks at Manchester United, West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur who we think have the potential to make an impact.

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

Lucas Moura

  • FPL ownership: 2.4%
  • Price: £6.6m
  • GW32-36 fixtures: eve + SOU | – | SHU | lee | WOL

Tottenham Hotspur are the only team who play twice in Double Gameweek 32, as they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton tomorrow night, before playing Southampton at home on Wednesday.

Loading up on their assets is a no brainer, but if your budget won’t stretch to Son Heung-min (£9.4) or Harry Kane (£11.7m), or if you fancy complementing them with a differential, FPL bosses could do a lot worse than look at Lucas Moura (£6.6m).

Until last month, it felt like another patchy season for the Brazilian, as he struggled to establish himself in the starting XI. However, the 28-year-old has now started nine of the last ten league matches, providing two goals, four assists and 47 FPL points during that time. Interestingly, that’s five more than Son over the same period, and you could argue that along with Kane, he is one of Spurs’ in-form players right now.

Moura’s numbers over the last six Gameweeks are also encouraging. Among team-mates, he ranks second for chances created and joint-third for shots in the box, while no player has touched the ball more often in the final-third. Crucially, he has been taking some corners too, which could yield returns against Everton, who rank third-worst for set-piece attempts conceded over their last six home matches.

Son and Kane remain the stand-out picks in Double Gameweek 32, but Moura continues to be overlooked and could offer real value at just £6.6m.

Jarrod Bowen

  • FPL ownership: 2.3% 
  • Price: £5.9m
  • GW32-36 fixtures: new | CHE | bur | EVE | bha

With Michail Antonio (£6.6m) side-lined with a hamstring injury which could see him miss the remainder of the season, Jarrod Bowen (£5.9m) is impressing in his absence.

The 24-year-old has now scored three goals in as many games, and also provided an assist against Leicester City last time out. 

In his new role as a striker, Bowen has shown he is capable of leading the line by using his pace to make clever runs in behind the opposition’s backline. His partnership with Jesse Lingard (£6.5m) is thriving, and the duo’s movement in recent matches suggests Newcastle’s defenders could be in for a long afternoon on Saturday. It’s also worth noting that the Magpies’ have conceded more goals from counter-attacks than any other side this season, and have kept just one Premier League clean sheet at St James’ Park.

West Ham continued their charge towards Champions League football with a win in Gameweek 31 and most of their remaining matches are against teams currently in the bottom-half. In fact, the home game against Chelsea in Gameweek 33 looks to be the only fixture to be truly wary of.

Though Lingard has stolen the show since arriving in east London, Bowen is stepping up right when the Hammers need him most, and could be an effective differential for the run-in.

Mason Greenwood

How Spurs' FPL assets fared in their final match before Double Gameweek 32
  • FPL ownership: 2.1%
  • Price: £7.0m
  • GW32-36 fixtures: BUR | lee | LIV | avl | LEI

After a difficult start to the season, Mason Greenwood (£7.0m) has now scored three goals in his last four appearances.

The 19-year-old played a decisive role in Manchester United’s 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, as he came off the bench and provided a goal and assist.

Tactically, it was an interesting setup, with Paul Pogba (£7.6m) starting as the left-sided player in a 4-2-3-1 formation. However, as the game went on, he and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m), who Greenwood later replaced, took up narrower positions and effectively swung the clash in Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side’s favour.

If Pogba is to continue in a similar, more advanced role, where he has the vision and ability to quickly switch play, United’s right-sided forward stands to benefit most.

Rotation at clubs still involved in Europe is always a concern at this stage of the season, but Greenwood has now started eight of the last ten matches in all competitions, and with Anthony Martial (£8.6m) out injured, more opportunities should come his way.

The number 11’s push for a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships this summer could be an important factor, too, as he will need to showcase his undoubted talent during the run-in. Encouragingly, the fixtures offer him an opportunity to do exactly that, as the Red Devils now face Burnley, Leeds United and Aston Villa between Gameweek 32 and 35.

Greenwood is one of the Premier League’s brightest young stars, and with an ownership of just 2.1%, is a tempting midfield differential.

    Feel like people are sleeping on Traore. Goal and assist in last two GWs and good fixtures coming up. Thoughts?

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I will get him as a Neto replacement and bench boost this week. Also need someone decent next week when Tottenham don't play.

    2. MMN
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      1 goal all season?

    3. The Sociologist
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      For good reason I think. Not set the world alight.

    4. G00LI0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Will forever let you down. Will look exciting and get you 2 or 3 points or not play most games. Will crop up with an assist or goal the odd time. Not worth it

      1. circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        I know but I am being pig headed about my bench boost want 4 reasonable chances of returns, otherwise I get Smith Rowe.

  3. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Take -12, DCL Gundo DDG Cresswell > Nacho Son Lloris Coady.

    Have done the first two Nacho & Son. Which one would you do?
    A. Yes do it
    B. No, play Martinez & Cresswell, Dallas 1st bench

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I'd say do it, but I'm less adverse to a hit then most.

  4. ViperStripes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    Play
    a) Johnson vs Leicester
    b) Martinez vs ManCity

    1. TheresOnly1AW
      • 8 Years

      Johnson

  5. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    Is Dias expected to be rested again (cup games either side)?

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Hopefully not. He's played majority of games, with minimal rest, but Pep is tough to predict.

    2. The Sociologist
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Who knows

  6. trinzoo
    • 6 Years

    2. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years

    3. LAMELA_AND_CONSUELA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Dallas

    4. Podorsky

      3 months, 20 days ago

      Never ever ever bench Dallas!

  7. Jellyfish
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    Play Pickford or Martinez this gw? Currently on Pickford

    1. The Sociologist
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Yeah think that’s the right call

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks

    Good Afternoon,

    What is the take on Raphina starting for those in the know? I have DCL on the bench and he is out for sure. First sub would be Digne as such, if I am not to take a -4 to bring in Lacazette. I think the pool-leeds game will be quite entertaining!

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I’ve got Raph first sub. It sounds 50/50 to me.

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Normally Bielsa is very upfront. The fact he didn't confirm Raph's fitness shows it's most probably touch and go.

    3. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I'm playing Raph with Watkins 1st sub

  9. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    Pick one to bench :

    A) jota (Lee)
    B) rudiger (BHA)
    C) mount (BHA)
    D) holding (FUL)

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      C

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Tough call. Between Rudiger and Holding for me. Probably Holding.

    3. The Sociologist
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      B or D

  10. Tshelby
    • 6 Years

  11. Coys96
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    Am I mad to go Bowen over Lingard?

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      He wont take pens.

      1. Coys96
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Yeah realised that after. Thought he took one earlier this season, but he didnt

    Martinez Pope

      Probably coady

    3. JoeSoap

      Probably B

    4. The Sociologist

    A) Raph > Jota
    B) Bam > Laca

  17. LABILLETHEGOAT
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    42pts behind leader, should I use my TC on Kane this week?

    1. KeepCalm
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Probably on Son. All in or nothing!

    2. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Sure, knowing he uses his/hers, and on Kane too

    3. Rundmc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 20 days ago

      Yes given Southampton’s defence. Not sure you’ll get a better option than Kane on a double gameweek against one of the worst s in the game

    4. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I'd say yes. 42pts isn't so much you have to go for anything crazy differential.

    5. AD2110
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      I’m debating the same thing. I’m quite tempted to save it for the final few weeks when it matters the most

      1. LABILLETHEGOAT
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 20 days ago

        Yeh AD2110 it's a tough choice. Thanks for the responses guys, appreciate it.

  18. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 20 days ago

    A. Play holding
    B. Vydra to Laca for a hit, bench Holding (Rudiger may not play though)

    1. LABILLETHEGOAT
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 20 days ago

      i'd say play holding

    2. The Sociologist
      • 2 Years

      A probably

    3. Stupendous

          There's not much history of Cancelo cameos and by every other criterion he trumps Holding by a distance.
