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.

    It's so empowering when you don't care about your mini-leagues and take a -12 because it seemed fun! Let's see the team now:

    Mendy (Fabri)
    Shaw Rudiger Saiss
    Son (C) Bruno Mane Jota Bown
    Kane Iheanacho

    Subs: Bamford Phillips Veltman

    1. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Oh, you have already taken the minus 12, ,lol :).

      1. markus808
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        He clearly needs to take -12 with that team.

  4. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Veltman or targett first sub? Playing martinez

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Veltman

      1. Geriatric Unathletic
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Veltman

  5. ViperStripes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Play Raphinha
    With Watkins 1st sub vs ManCity the correct call?

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah I’d do the same

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I'd say so

  6. acidicleo
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Bench one..

    A) Dallas
    B) Stones
    C) Digne

    Cheers..

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Digne I think

    2. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Tough but Digne I would.

  7. Daghe Munegu
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Play 1

    A ESR
    B Holding (have Leno)

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Holding

    2. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      ESR. If startrs a far higher points ceiling. Fulham have been poor but Arsenal defence is always suspect.

  8. G00LI0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Are many of you considering a hit to get 3 spurs?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      No

    2. Hazz
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I'm personally fine with 2.

      BGW next week, other players I want to prioritise.

    3. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      No, have Son and Kane - who would be 3rd?

    4. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      NO WAY- Espcially if considering a defender!

    5. matiakez
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Not for me

    6. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Not at all

    7. Nedvěd11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Nah

    8. G00LI0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Think that's pretty unanimous!

  9. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Hi All

    I have Son and Kane in my team this week, TC Kane.

    Should I also put the VC on Son or another player just in case the pair don't feature in one of the two games?

    Thanks

    1. TeddiPonza
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Another player in case of a late covid cases or something like that 🙂

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Doesn't matter.

    3. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Very small chance of neither playing so No, stick with Surs as c and VC.

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks for your comments, much appreciated.

  10. TeddiPonza
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Play Coufal or Holding this week?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Tough one. Holding probably; I expect Toon to score. Fulham, not so much.

    2. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Coufal.

    3. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      ASM is on fire....

      Play Holding

    4. Hazz
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I was debating on bringing in Coufal this week. There was a degree of potentially being priced out as 4.6m was my limit, but in the end I went with Holding.

      Sort of expect West Ham to concede. Bookies odds give that a higher chance too. Arsenal could too mind, but I watched that Fulham vs. Wolves match... they were poor going forwards.

      (Although beware Wolves owners, Wolves looked shaky defninf too.)

  11. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    can i grab a santity check on bench order

    Johnston
    James Rudiger Trent
    Mo Jota Son Lingard
    Vardy Nacho Kane

    Forster Holding Fofana Neto

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      GTG

    2. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      U R good

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I would play Holding over Rudiger

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        This

    4. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Think you've got it right, same as my order below

    5. Geriatric Unathletic
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Fofana, then Holding - neto.

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        your straight off the bookie CS odds. WBA 8 goals last two games and foxes cant clean at home did make me doubt that

  12. WALOR
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Bench 1 for my draft league squad:
    Lingard Rashford Greenwood Jota Pulisic
    Kane Cavani Lacazette

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Greenwood

      1. WALOR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        that was the plan, then he starts looking sharp

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Almost impossible to choose. Is Rashford fit?

      1. WALOR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        I suppose if he's a risk to get pulled early, he should be b1

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Pulisic

  13. Pep Roulette

    Looking for a defender 5.4M or less.
    I'm on Shaw but Coady's fixtures appeal and Holdings price appeals...

    Any other contenders?

      Jota

    2. acidicleo

      LM

    3. Rasping Drive

      Moura.

    4. Pep Roulette

      Jota. Short term + Long term!

    5. BERGKOP

      3 months, 19 days ago

      Jota

  16. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years

    What has happened with Burnley defence? Not performing atm, worth bringing in Cavani?

    1. Nedvěd11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      3 upfront?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Currently have Kane DCL Iheanacho

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      If not for a hit, most definitely. Dyche seems to have them playing free flowing football. Something which I never thought I'd write.

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Really? Havent't watched their games in a while

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          Aye, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. Against Everton especially first half, quick one touch passing, great to watch (I sh*t you not :-D)

  17. smix

    Not enough cash for Bruno.. Best alternate to bring in
    A. Pulisic
    B. Pogba

    1. LakhaneeFC

    3. Rasping Drive

    Is KDB to Son worth a hit? Have Kane, and Son will become Salah next week.....

    1. Belli2007

      I am assuming KDB plays Fa Cup And league Cup and is therefore rested in the week

      Are you chasing or protecting in OR/minileagues?

        in my minileague i'm first with 3 points on second.
        protecting but i need to put more points between me and the second 🙂

          Kane in that case

    Best GK to have? Have a Chelsea defender. So don't know if it should be Mendy.

      I got Leno.

      1 / 1 CS till now 😛

      Leno does look good till the end of the season.

      Patrício has great fixtures

      I went for Johnstone last week on WC, seems nice and cheap on a tightened up WBA def and should be good for save points

    Some last input? Don't really know what to do..

    Still have my wc so probably a one week punt

    A bit sideways but vardy and bamford to laca and nacho?
    Or just coufal to
    a)Alonso
    b)Castagne
    c)Reguilion

    1. Rasping Drive

      Go for it. Something wrong with Vardy atm. So long as it's not for a hit. If it is, then Coufal to Alonso.

      1. Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        It's for a hit.. Don't think that Vardy can get some points this week?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          He could for sure, but he looks off it somehow. Should be an open game, however, so not worth spending 4 points to get rid imo

            Cheers going to do one of the defender move

      Who doesn’t!

    All good to BB this?

    Mendy
    Coady Shaw Rudiger
    Son Salah Lingz Bruno
    Kane(c) Nacho Bamford

    Forster Jota Dallas Phillips

    PS - leading my MLs and rivals have used all chips. 34 could have slightly better fixtures but I like the idea of being able to focus on 12-13 for the final few games...

    Cheers for any feedback!

    Cavani nailed on to start the next 2 atleast?

    1. Hazz
      • 4 Years

      Nailed? No.

    2. dunas_dog

      No- Greenwood could easily start one of them up top

    May have been posted already by Pope is "touch and go".

    If you have him still, time to sell. Roll the dice on Lloris if you have a decent backup?
