Low-owned FPL pick Aubameyang can exploit Norwich in Gameweek 4

Gameweek 4 is almost upon us, which gives us an opportunity to have a look at some more Fantasy Premier League (FPL) differential options.

This time, we’ve selected low-owned picks at Arsenal, Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers 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.

PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG

  • FPL ownership: 1.7%
  • Price: £9.9m
  • GW4-8 fixtures: NOR | bur | TOT | bha | CRY

It feels strange to include a player like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.9m) in this section of our coverage, but the Gabon international comes into Gameweek 4 sitting in just 1.7% of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) squads.

Having lost all three Premier League games so far, conceding nine in the process and failing to score a single goal themselves, there will understandably be reservations about investing in Arsenal assets, let alone a premium forward.

However, it’s worth noting that the Gunners have faced back-to-back matches against arguably the best two teams in Europe, and with key personnel – including Gabriel (£5.0m), Ben White (£4.4m) and Thomas Partey (£5.0m) – all set to be available for selection in Gameweek 4, Aubameyang should at least have a platform to rediscover his best form.

Encouragingly, there were glimpses of the ‘old’ Aubameyang against West Bromwich Albion in last month’s EFL Cup tie, albeit against lower-league opposition. The 32-year-old bagged a well-taken hat-trick, and will now hope to open his Premier League account for the season against the leakiest defence in the division – Norwich City – tomorrow afternoon. Aubameyang has an excellent recent record against the Canaries, too, scoring twice against them both home and away back in 2019/20.

The introduction of Martin Odegaard (£5.5m) could also be key. The Norwegian created a whopping 12 chances against Gibraltar during the international break, while last season’s performances also suggest that he can supply Mikel Arteta’s frontline with the type of service they crave.

Investing in Aubameyang is the ultimate differential punt in Gameweek 4, and while it does carry some risk, he might just be worth a look.

ANDREAS CHRISTENSEN

  • FPL ownership: 3.0%
  • Price: £5.0m
  • GW4-8 fixtures: AVL | tot | MCI | SOU | bre

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) has been a crucial part of Thomas Tuchel’s defence this season, having started and completed 90 minutes in all three Premier League matches.

There is bound to be some rotation moving forward, but with 36 clean sheets in his last 48 appearances, he may well have edged ahead of Thiago Silva (£5.4m) in the pecking order, at least for now.

The 25-year-old academy graduate found himself on the periphery of the squad last season, but has caught the eye in the clean sheet wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, while stepping up to help the Blues keep Liverpool at bay despite going down to 10 men following Reece James’ (£5.6m) red card in Gameweek 3. 

Defensively, amongst team-mates, he ranks top for interceptions and clearances, and second for aerial duels won and recoveries, which does suggest that he should do well for bonus if they can keep a clean sheet in the coming matches.

Following his international run-outs against Scotland and Faroe Islands, the 25-year-old is expected to start against Aston Villa in Gameweek 4. Dean Smith’s side have managed just nine shots on target against Watford (a), Newcastle United (h) and Brentford (h) combined, while Chelsea’s fixture run between Gameweeks 7 and 11 is particularly appealing too.

Christensen hands FPL managers a cheap route into one of the best defences in Europe, and providing you have a playing bench who can sometimes step in, he looks like an excellent option for our backlines.

FRANCISCO TRINCAO

  • FPL ownership: 0.8%
  • Price: £5.9m
  • GW4-8 fixtures: wat | BRE | sou | NEW | avl

Francisco Trincão (£5.9m) has enjoyed a promising start to life at Wolverhampton Wanderers, starting all three Premier League matches and bagging his first goal for the club in the 4-0 EFL Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

Encouragingly, the Portuguese international is improving with each game, and came close to opening his Premier League account against Manchester United in Gameweek 3, only to be denied by an excellent goal-line clearance by Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m). He later scuffed a shot wide when in a decent goalscoring position, too, which does suggest that he needs to work on his finishing, but the fact he is getting into these positions is of course a positive.

Despite losing three matches in a row, Wolves have faced tough opponents in Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Man Utd, and for those eyeing up their attacking assets, the underlying numbers do point to a change of fortunes. 

Offensively, Wolves boast the third-highest expected goals (xG) from open-play tally (4.39), ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool, while their 57 goal attempts and 36 shots in the box also stand-out. 

The next step for Lage’s men is to turn convert those numbers into points, and handily for the Molineux outfit, they now have one of the best runs of fixtures in the division from Gameweek 4 onwards, stretching right the way through to Gameweek 14.

It was also noted by Stevie Eye Test FPL in his excellent Wolves analysis, due to Trincão’s ability in tighter spaces, these next matches against low-block terms may actually suit him more.

Despite Daniel Podence (£5.5m) pushing for a start, it seems likely that Trincão will get the nod again at Watford, and priced at just £5.9m, could be a nice differential option given his schedule.

    I want Jota over Greenwood but if Firmino is only our one week then it will be a wasted WC to pick him over Greenwood. I just don't believe Firmino will be out more than 1 week because he also had international break for recovery. A serious hamstring can lasted for months but the minor hamstring injury lasted only 3 weeks since I had one before and I recovered without physio.

    1. TheTinman

      Jota is a good option even with 30mins off the bench. Firmino will be eased in and Jota is creeping closer and closer to being 1st choice.

    2. Manani
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      i think Jota will replace Firmino from the preferred starting 11, even if Frmino is fit

    Differential League 2021:

    One of the best FPL moments is when you pick that player that nobody else has and they score big. It's bragging rights amongst mates. It proves that your endless hours of going back and forth over the same statistics was finally worth it. This league aims to see who is the punt master over the season.

    If you would like to take part, just read the rules carefully on the Google Form provided. In short, it is like the community picks but every player has to be under 10% ownership by the GW deadline.

    I will track scores over the season and make a weekly comment to summarise the previous week's results and the new link for the next GW Form to complete.

    Here is the link if you want to try and became the differential deity.

      Thank you, nice idea. I had an idea for something that I asked FFS whether they could do before the season but I don't think they had time (and things happened earlier than we expected).

      It was a guess the starting prices competition. Maybe that's something you could turn your hand to if we can't get it on the FFS site next year.

      Will the form have the same link each week or will we have to look out for it on the hot topics?

        There will be 1 hot topic per gameweek for a new form each week. I will also summarise the leaderboard etc.

          Well that lasted all of one week. Still no link and I've got to go home.

            Hi CircusMonkey,

            Apologies for no GW5. I had extenuating personal circumstances and even missed my regular FPL transfers this week, still have DCL!

            Won't happen again.

            I am about to make a post that will sum up week 4, apologise for week 5, and provide the link for week 6.

            You are 2nd at the moment!

        1 month, 10 days ago

        I'm in same boat and thinking CR7. Even 30mins is enough against my pathetic Newcastle team

      6. Eh, just one more thing ...

        After Ole's comments I'm not sure he starts so would suggest Salah tbh...

        Christensen

      2. Gabbiadini

        neither best xi

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          if it had to be one of them i'd go christensen as he is likely a better chance of starting out of the two.

        Ron

    6. JBG
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I'm very much in thought now if CR will start... Need to take a hit to bring him in and lose Bruno (who will 100% start) v Newcastle at home. Really hope something about CR starting or not gets leaked.

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        In doubt.

        F*** me how did I get that wrong

        1. TheTinman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I need to watch it, but I think Ollie is just building hype. He would say if he was starting from the bench as he's not ready, but he would never say he is starting.

          1. JBG
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            He said the same about Sancho though.

            1. TheTinman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Did he? I'll check that also then but I would be surprised, I thought it was a bit clearer sancho wasn't fit.

              And then there is of course a teeny weeny difference in the players

      2. Khark
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Why do you think CR7 wont start?

        Don't say Ole, because Ole hasn't said he wont start. He hasn't said he will start either, but, name me a time when a manager has said a player is definitely starting in a press conference.

        1. JBG
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          I said I'm in doubt, not that he won't start. Apparently CR trained alone last training session as well, which seems to indicate he isn't match fit. But this is all in my head and just theories.

      3. Eh, just one more thing ...

    8. Manani

      Jota or Torres?

      Already got Salah

      1. Holmes

        Jota

    9. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Decided to go with Lukaku, Ronaldo, Salah & TAA. Can I squeeze Jota in for the short term until Firmino is back?

      A) Jota and start one of Sissoko, Allan, Livramento, Duffy/Williams

      B) Traore & Benrahma/Sarr

      Thinking just to go with Jota and probably downgrade in 2/3 once we see what happens with Raphinha/Benrahma/Traore/Sarr/ESR etc.?

      Cheers

      1. Fpl_Ludwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yeah you could probably get away with rotating duffy and B.Williams but that is if duffy keeps his place

    10. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      A) Jota & Auba for Son & Ings (-4)
      B) Jota & Jiminez for Song & Ings (-4)
      C) Jota for Son - start Ings

      1. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Hmm not sure Jimenez is worth the hit. Probably a sensible C.

      Pick 2 to start from these 3:

      Any opinion on my WC team:

      sanchez / Bachman
      Christensen/White/duffy/Ayling/Dier
      Salah/Gray/Torres/Dele/Allan
      CR7/lukaku/Antonio

      cheers

          good point. I wanted a Spurs cover. I'll consider your option !

          Yeah I’ve got dele and looking to get rid

    13. DIMITRIS
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I think I'm settled on this WC draft:

      Sanchez (Gunn)
      Rudiger - Christensen - Shaw ( Williams, Livra )
      Salah - Jota - Sarr - Gray (Sissoko)
      Antonio - Lukaku - Ronaldo
      0.2 ITB

      The only thing I might change is Shaw and Gray OUT for Semedo and Traore IN.
      What do you think?

      1. el flacooo
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Why Sarr when you can pick Dele or Traore? 😉
        kidding.
        Good team IMO !

        1. DIMITRIS
          • 3 Years

          Actually I prefer Sarr over Traore and Dele 😀 Talisman theory and all of that stuff.

      Wild cards on here not having Taa+Chelsea def+City def
      Crazy crazy times.

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Double Chelsea and Shaw/Semedo/Tierny is sufficient to cover TAA imo.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          3 players to cover Taa
          lol
          Imagine owning 2 x Chel def + Taa!

          1. DIMITRIS
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            It's not about cover that much. Trent is very good option and I had him for first 3 GW's and I still think I might leave him out of my WC draft. It's because I want Lukaku and Ronaldo in my team and Chelsea is perhaps the best defence in Europe at the moment. It's a gamble, but one I'm willing to take. Of course I'll get TAA back in my team eventually, but I recon Chelsea has very nice fixtures up front and I want to get on them early.
            Jota and Salah will probably be enough of Liverpool for the next 3 GW's at least.
            Cheers!

            Who wants double Chelsea defence vs Spurs and City?? Plus James is banned

            1. DIMITRIS
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              If you are on WC than you set your team for at least 7-8 GW's in front. Chelsea do have great fixtures in coming.

            2. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              James is banned for a game. If on a WC it's easy to get cover with defenders like Dier. Spurs have scored 3 goals in 3 games. Missing Son now as well. Nothing wrong with double Chelsea def I reckon. They are prob the best def in league imo.

        I disagree pretty strongly, I don't think they're necessary right now. Good picks maybe, but not crazy to avoid.

        TAA I agree, that's a mistake. But Chelsea can come in GW7, City are a good shout but there are value picks out there that frees up funds for attack.

          If you WC you should surely try and be ahead of the curve? Why WC only to do transfers in def in 3 wks?

            You WC to help you have the right players at the right times. Being ahead can cost you points, and you might be ahead on the wrong timeline (starting to get into time travel plots here). By virtue of WCing for the best team you can have (theorectically) for this week onwards, you are already ahead of the curve, so to speak, on everyone who only have 1 or 2 FTs.

        City def not essential at all

          They will outscore most of the 7.5m attackers

            Maybe so on a whole season basis.

            But midfielders you look to hit their strong runs, the times when their competition is injured, when they're low owned etc.

            Overall your 7.5m slot rotated across various players using FT should always outscore the defender or you're doing something wrong.

            For me, perfect defemsive set up is;
            TAA who you never transfer
            Premium £5-6m who you transfer maybe 2 times outside of wildcards
            Decent starter £4.5-£5.5m who you transfer out every 4-8GW depending on your squad to try and capitalise on fixture swings.

              You will nearly never get your timing right to hit the purple patches. Just get the "glue" or season keepers in defence and keep them. Rotate the other big hitters.

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Disagree. If you want to hit a low rank you have to hit the purple patches as others will

                That IMHO is the biggest single rule in FPL. You dont want to be messing about with defensive transfers. Pick 6 and keep them baring injuries. Wise words Christina.

          2. DIMITRIS
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Will they outscore Jota or Greenwood? 50/50 imo.

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              They will almost certainly match them.
              For 1.5m less

                Jota and GW wont get 180 pts.
                Pity you are not a member. Projections in members area are interesting.

                  But you don't have to own them for the season.

                  And 180 points is crap too as it's only 4.7 points per game. You want to own them when they are scoring 7-8 PPG like Greenwood is atm.

                    I know its crap for a 7.5m player. Thats why im not interested in them, other than TAA. Good luck in hitting those purple patches.

                1 month, 10 days ago

                If Firmino is out for a longer period, than Jota is better options. If you mange to get both City defense and 7.5 mid than it's great.

        TAA, Chelsea plus 3 playing defenders is good enough in my opinion.

        Frees up cash for mids / attackers

          Ok thanks, such a farce this IB, how do they still not know if Brazilians are playing or not, ridiculous. I guess my transfers wait until tomorrow. Perhaps they all start and then get detained on the pitches

    17. Ruminating Llama

        Anyone else taking a punt on Ings to Aubameyang? Can easily enough upgrade to Lukaku in a few gameweeks.

          • Has Moderation Rights

          Not me, too much else out there I want. I considered it, but would prefer Lukaku straight away

        2. Manani
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          i am thinking DCL will be a better 'intermediate' striker before GW7 Lukaku,

          unless you already have DCL of course

          1. Ruminating Llama
              1 month, 10 days ago

              DCL has been plan A, but I was a little put off by Benitez comments, plus I already have Gray so wasn't too keen on the double up.

            Been thinking of it for last few days but I've been determined to gather as much data as possible over the IB and hold off any moves and not be persuaded by any hype. Do you know how many minutes he has played over the break with Gabon ?

          Dilemma.. Son and Wilson out:
          A) Lukaku and Jota (-4)
          B) Ronaldo and Sarr (-4)

          C) or ship Ings as well and bring in Lukaku, Jota and Pukki / Wood which leaves enough for Lukaku -> Ron later.

          So is Greenwood the odd man out at Manu with CR7 arrival?

            Not this week, I think Greenwood RW for GW4

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Not yet. He's still ahead of Sancho atm if you ask me.

              Greenwood will start upfront this week with Ronaldo coming on for him around 70 mins. Then he’s struggling after that.

            -CR7 or Cavani start as nr 9
            -Sancho LW
            -Bruno CF
            -Greenwood RW

            Pogba CM

        6. The Mighty Whites

          A - Sarr & Traore
          B - Raphinha & Gray

          Also, what are people on WC doing with the Raphinha situation?

          1. Eh, just one more thing ...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Go for a one week place holder punt this week and book transfer to get Raph next week. If you don’t like booking transfers you have to have him on the WC and ride the possibility of him not playing this week

        7. RUUD!
          • 9 Years

          Gray or Traore?

            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            do you have any other wolves/everton if so pick the non-double up imo.
            otherwise, I'd go Gray just, 0.4 spare.

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              In saying this, I like Sarr best. 6.0 and below.

          Sanchez (Steele)
          TAA / Shaw / White (Duffy / Williams)
          Salah / Jota / Torres / Traore (Allan)
          Ronaldo / Antonio / DCL

          Thanks

          MID Salah, Jota,  Greenwood, Smith Rowe, Allan
          FWD DCL, Antonio, Ronaldo

          Leaves 0 in the bank. Perhaps Greenwood to Raphaina next week.

          How's it looking?

        10. Manani
          • 9 Years

          Barnes > Sarr

          worth a hit?

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 8 Years

            I don't think so

          2. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            I'll say yes on the basis that Leicester have the potential of going a back three this week and two strikers.

          To save wildcard, does this seem sensible?

          This gw: Son & Ings to Sarr and Lukaku (-4)
          Next gw: Bruno and tsimikas to Trent & Jota

          On 40k so points to spare

          1. Geoff

            Possibly, but I'm not sure. Decent -4 this week. Decent moves next week. But Firmino could be back soon, so I'm not sure that Jota move will look as good in a week

          2ft, 0.6 itb

          Thinking Fernandes and Ings to Ronaldo and a mid under 8. Best option? And would it be worth to take a hit to get Barnes out??
