Cash an FPL differential for Gameweek 21 and beyond

Gameweek 21 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) 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 Leicester City, Burnley and Aston Villa, 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.

*Please note that this article was written before the postponement of Leicester’s clash with Norwich City and the Double Gameweek 21 announcement.

MATTHEW LOWTON

  • FPL ownership: 1.7%
  • Price: £4.4m
  • GW21-25 fixtures: lee | LEI | ars | MUN | LIV

On first glance, investing in a Burnley defender ahead of Gameweek 21 probably doesn’t make much sense, with games against Manchester United x2, Leeds United, Leicester City and Arsenal in the next five.

However, Sean Dyche’s side also have four matches still to be rearranged after being hit by Covid and weather postponements – Everton (h), Aston Villa (a), Watford (h) and Tottenham Hotspur (h) – which suggests they should see plenty of Double Gameweek action early next year.

That raises the appeal of budget defender Matthew Lowton (£4.4m), who has already produced four attacking returns across his 15 Premier League appearances this season. The right-back also features amongst the top three performers at his club for big chances created and final-third touches, plus defensive metrics like tackles won, interceptions, recoveries and clearances.

Burnley remain in the bottom three but do have up to four games in hand on some of their relegation rivals, whilst it’s also worth noting that they have only lost one of their last six games, albeit with four draws. During that run, they have kept clean sheets against Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United, conceding just six goals in total, with their 7.90 expected goals conceded (xGC) figure ranking ninth amongst all teams when applying the ‘last six matches’ filter.

Priced at just £4.4m, Lowton offers a cheap route into Burnley’s defence, and could be a nice set and forget option given his potential for future Doubles.

MATTY CASH

Five-time top 1k FPL finisher Tom Freeman on Villa under Gerrard and his Gameweek 13 plans 4
  • FPL ownership: 4.3%
  • Price: £5.0m
  • GW21-25 fixtures: bre | MUN | eve | LEE | new

Matty Cash (£5.0m) has played an integral role for Aston Villa since the appointment of Steven Gerrard.

During that time, his team have conceded just eight goals in seven matches, despite a tough schedule which has included games against all of the current top three: Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

And that improved defensive stability, combined with the 24-year-olds attacking threat from wide areas, could make him a shrewd differential pick for Fantasy managers.

In recent weeks, Villa have been defending much better, which is reflected in the numbers. Over their last seven matches, they have allowed just 6.69 non-pen xGC and also kept clean sheets against Brighton and Hove Albion and Norwich City.

However, Cash’s appeal is further boosted by his attacking threat. Since the beginning of the season, the right-back ranks second amongst all defenders for penalty area touches, sixth for attempts in the box and ninth for final-third touches. For context, his 14 shots in the box is only one behind team-mate Danny Ings (£7.7m).

Villa now face a Brentford side who have failed to score in each of their last two matches and will once again be without the influential Rico Henry (£4.5m), who usually operates on the side Cash will be attacking. It’s also worth noting that fixtures against Watford (h), Brighton and Hove Albion (a) and Southampton (h) follow the ones detailed above, and as a result, it’s no surprise to see Gerrard’s side topping our Season Ticker for ease of fixture between Gameweeks 21 and 28.

Cash is an exciting footballer, and with his ability to contribute points at both ends of the pitch, is a tempting investment given Villa’s schedule.

YOURI TIELEMANS

Vardy injury latest as Tielemans keeps up fine FPL form
  • FPL ownership: 3.8%
  • Price: £6.4m
  • GW21-25 fixtures: NOR | bur | BHA | liv | WHU

Belgium international Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) has developed into one of the best box-to-box midfielders in the Premier League since his move to Leicester City.

Across his 14 league appearances in 2021/22, he has produced five goals and two assists. As a result, his 5.0 points per match tally is more than team-mates James Maddison (£6.9m) and Jamie Vardy (£10.4m), plus others in his category like Jarrod Bowen (£6.6m) and Bukayo Saka (£6.3m). Notably, he has also posted team-leading totals for chances created, touches in the opponent’s half and successful crosses, while his all-round ability lends itself to bonus points, with only three midfielders in the entire division collecting more than his 11 this term.

Following Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Liverpool, the Foxes’ now face a Norwich City side that has failed to score in any of their last five matches, conceding a whopping 14 goals in the process, with an appealing trip to Burnley to follow. There are also two further games to be rearranged due to Covid postponements – Everton (a) and Tottenham Hotspur (h) – which raises the prospect of a Double Gameweek.

The injury situation at Leicester certainly isn’t ideal, with manager Brendan Rodgers recently slamming the festive fixture schedule as “ridiculous”. However, if Gameweek 21 does indeed come too soon for Vardy, who limped off against Liverpool and will be assessed ahead of the visit of Norwich, it may give Tielemans’s prospects a further boost, as it’s highly likely he will be on penalties.

Tielemans has been a crucial player for a while now, and having been handed a first-half rest earlier this week, should be raring to go in Gameweek 21.

  2. Scout Picks Community Champion Lottery - GW21 & GW22

    Be the first to take on the Scout Picks in 2022!

    I’m after two Community champions one for GW21 and one for GW22.

    How it works: a member of the Community will be selected to go head-to-head against the Scout Picks panel of Neale, Tom, Sam and Az each GW.

    The Community Member who has the largest winning margin across the 38 weeks takes home a £100 Amazon voucher and entry to our Mods and Cons League.

    The current leader is Holmes, who set a 25-point winning margin in GW7.

    If chosen, you will have a budget of £83m to select 11 players but outside of that standard FPL rules apply - you need to use a normal FPL formation and with a limit of 3 players from a team. And remember to pick a captain and vice-captain.

    If you’re interested in applying, email me at will@fantasyfootballscout.co.uk with the subject heading “Community Picks”. Include your FFS username and FPL Team ID and I’ll select two champions at random from the entrants for GWs 21 and 22.

    This season there is a draw for a champion and a sub, just in case the champion is unable to get their selection in on time. The sub then becomes the champion for the following GW.

    The champion will be picked after the match this evening, so make sure to enter by then. If selected you then have until 5pm Friday afternoon to send in your team, but tweaks are allowed right up to the deadline (in case of injuries announced in the press conferences or fixture postponements).

    Also, if you fancy playing along at home, I'm developing a little spreadsheet to help you select your XI and see how you get on against the Scout Picks once the GW gets underway:

    Important update

    That Villa match ticket news is to expedite refunds.

    No need to target Cash or Watkins then.

      Cash still a decent option without the double imo. Decent fixtures run right through till GW29.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        Agree. I sold him last week for Emerson due to the Villa blank. Now I'm considering getting him back for James.

        1. putana

            He's got 1 more game for the threshold to rise on suspensions.

        2. Echoes

          Yeah, good move that. I'm looking to get him for Alonso.

            Was gonna sell Alonso this week, but James now priority. Will get rid of Alonso next week - UNLESS something comes up ....

      Tweet states "AVL are scheduled to play on Jan 10 & Jan 15 so they can't play in GW21 unless the sched changes", but they have no fixtures between 2nd and the 10th. So couldn't they still play an outstanding fixtures then ?

        Nope. There's the FA Cup 3rd round.

    1 FT, 1.4 ITB. Top priority to get rid of? Bernardo, Jesus, Rudi, someone else? Any suggestions?

  7. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    28 days, 22 hours ago

    DDG spotted but Henderson could still start imo. He's been itching for gametime and this is the perfect scenario where I can see him starting tbh. No disrespect, but Burnley at home during a congested schedule. And it's not like he's a total rookie either. Would actually be surprised if he doesn't start tonight.

      United need to win, DDG saved them more than once.

      I think DDG should start to guarantee a positive outcome in the end.

    3. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      DDG is head, shoulders and mountains above anyone else in that United side this season (and since Rangnick has been there).

      Close to zero chance Henderson starts (unless there is some minor injury worry to DDG that we don't know about of course)

    4. Lord of Ings
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      I don’t think now is the time to experiment
      Rangnick doesn’t have the luxury.

  8. Cheeky Onion

    Who would you prioritize out for this GW - Bilva or Mount?

    1. putana

      bilva for sure

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bilva

    3. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bilva

  9. putana

    how many more games does cash need to play for his yellow card count to 'reset'

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      Just need to avoid a card this coming GW, I think.

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

      1 but Ben's spreadsheet is lagging so Villa not likely to double in gw21.

      They've got matches scheduled.

      Too many noises in the signals. The ticket info. was for refund purposes.

  10. tbos83
    • 1 Year
    28 days, 22 hours ago

    Who goes first?
    0.7itb, 1ft.

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA James* Cancelo Livra* White
    Son Bowen Gray Gallagher* Jota
    Dennis Ronaldo Wilson*

    1. BROOKLYN FREE AGENT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      Wilson or James, probably for someone from Villa, given their likely doubles, which we may find out about before Sat deadline.

      Is Maddison fit?

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

      Depending on injury status.

      Didn't look good to me. Was it cramp or a bigger muscular issue?

      1. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Looked much more like muscular, never seen a reaction like that for cramp before.

    5. The Mandalorian
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      Gallagher was given a rest. He's fit, should start and has a double in GW21.
      After GW21 LEI high risk of postponement.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        Seems strange to be completely out the squad for a rest when he normally plays 90 mins. You would've thought he made the bench if that was the case. I know the assistant manager said he was rested.

        A lot of journos stating he has covid before the game

      • 9 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      You should be able to flex. E.g. swap your 2nd GK for an extra defender, 3rd striker for an extra midfielder if you wish etc.

    4. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      How about Covid subs ? Anybody who is known to be out for a GW before the deadline can be replaced for one fixture only with a player with the same or lower price for free.

      I feel like people don’t realize PL literally could not give a fudge about FPL lol

      They’re not making their decisions based on “oh the FPL deadline is on Saturday so we have to make sure to let people know the fixtures by Friday evening”

      I've got a number of players on the chopping block and 2FT 0ITB. Which one to priorities out this GW? Open to taking a hit or two

      A. James
      B. Bernardo
      C. Salah
      D. Gallagher
      E. Alonso
      F Livramento

      2FT 0ITB
      Ramsdale
      Cancelo TAA James
      Jota Foden Salah Bernardo Gallagher
      Antonio Watkins
      (Foster King Alonso Livramento)

      1. The-Red-1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        I've got a similar team.

        1 James
        2 Bernardo

        Might be tempted to keep the rest

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 22 hours ago

          Those two are most likely out this GW for me. I need an update on Gallagher. Alonso and Livramento could probably wait until later to sort out. Salah to Son is tempting though

      2. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        A. The others all have a chance of playing.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 22 hours ago

          True. I think Bernardo is an easy transfer out to the likes of Bowen or Maddison. His hot streak is over and I can open up the 3rd city spot to Laporte or Dias later

      3. Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        Possibly lose James, Alonso & Bernardo to 2 cheaper def Davies / Cash / Tierney / Royal & have then have the money for Son for -4?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 22 hours ago

          Yeah I did look at the option. I would have 8.8m for the 2 def spots

      4. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        Think I'd lose ABC for -4. If you're getting Son & Bowen/Maddi that should leave you enough itb to do Alonso -> Robertson GW22

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          Good suggestion. Thanks

      How many players you want to get rid to actually hit a WC?

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        It's not about that for me. It's about when I feel I'll need to reset my team.

        Salah's return after AFCON being a big incentive to WC and also in GW35 before a GW36 BB.

        1. Scholes Out For Summer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          28 days, 22 hours ago

          Tep. Also coincides with Arsenal city and Chelsea nice fixture runs

        2. FredrikH
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 22 hours ago

          Fair point. But if you had 6-7 players with afcon/injuries or struggling with getting enough minutes, would you be tempted to burn it now?

          1. Scholes Out For Summer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            28 days, 22 hours ago

            Depends on the team. Two transfers and you would be getting an. 11 out

          2. Camzy
            • 11 Years
            28 days, 21 hours ago

            Depends on your team I guess.

    5. Bertonian

      28 days, 22 hours ago

      Chaps

      DGW21 & 22

      Do you think managers of certain teams involved will want to delay the DGW rearranged fixtures due to all the injuries (Chelsea / Everton / Leicester) Afcon (Watford / Liverpool) & transfer market (Newcastle) or do the managers get no say in this?

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        28 days, 22 hours ago

        Managers have no say.

        1. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          28 days, 22 hours ago

          They can certainly manipulate the numbers of unfit players.

      2. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        I’ll do it when I feel I need hits beyond -8. As I have James, Alonso, Bernardo, Jesus, Mount and some other chumps I may well do this week. I have free hits to catch up with future DGWs.

        To be honest, DGWs are a bit of a trap. In many a year I’ve used em only to see players not start both or get injured in one and hence not play the other. The only players you really want are the players who are getting regular points anyway, and you’re likely to have most of these. I’d rather have the players I want long term and use my WC to get them rather than just get players for a DGW. The preference - obviously - is to get players who meet both of those criteria.

      Is Amartey a very temporary solutiom for James? Or he has long term prospect?

      2. Tonyawesome69

        Yes short term option

        Legomane_FPL has Watford v Burnley

        But not Southampton v Brentford.

        I'm just going to wait until tomorrow evening then think about transfers again.

              I don't mind.

              1 or 2 bonus games in gw21 is fine for me.

            Bilva, you probably have cancelo and Taa so can play livra or you’re other defender and bench rudi if need be

            Having a 8m or so mid doing nothing is bad

            1. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              28 days, 22 hours ago

              More bang for your transfer with the potential mid options as well I think

          2. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            28 days, 22 hours ago

            Yeah sounds reasonable to me. Will probably do Bilva for Bowen or Maddy if he's ok. Cheers mate

            1. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              You are welcome Tommy Tynans left shinpad

            28 days, 22 hours ago

            Rudiger has Liv, Man City and Spurs next followed by 2 blanks. Unless you have a really strong bench and don't mind not playing him, I would consider selling him personally.

            1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              28 days, 21 hours ago

              I do think Bilva is in line for a rest tho, with Grelaish, Foden back in favour. Wouldn't you rather a playing defender over a rested mid?

              1. Sgt Frank Drebin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                28 days, 21 hours ago

                Over rested mid yes, but you can't be sure he will be benched. Chelsea is playing the most potent attack in the world currently, chances for a clean sheet are very slim imho. Maybe Rudiger can get some attacking return though. To be honest, I would maybe consider selling both for -4 if there is a double gameweek in the next fixture.
