FPL Top Picks for Gameweek 8 out now!

Best differentials for Double Gameweek 20

Our weekly look at interesting differentials – the FPL players with low ownership but the potential to be a superb pick.

We’ve all seen the template teams and have figured out which elite assets we’re going to jump on this season.

Whether you’re on the Kane train or the Haaland bus (or both), you’ll need some handy differentials to ensure you’re always one step ahead of mini-league rivals and can climb up the world rankings!


Four goals and two assists have arrived in Mahrez’s five post-World Cup outings, meaning it’s his turn to be Pep Guardiola’s favourite.

The quality from Riyad is everything. He loves to play football, helped us to play the game, he played really good and at 0-0 that can happen. He played an outstanding game playing wider. Good game.

When they play in this way and they complain, I can say ‘yeah, you are right, you deserve to play’. But before, he cannot play because he is not playing at the level he is playing now. Sometimes I have to let them see in their own mirror who they are.” – Pep Guardiola

What also helps his FPL credentials is his non-appearance during the midweek cup defeat to Southampton. Mahrez is normally a risky pick but this Double Gameweek should bring at least one start, maybe two.

Having a 3.1 per cent ownership makes him a great alternative to Kevin De Bruyne, for £5.0m less.



Meanwhile, Manchester United also play twice during Gameweek 20 and are in great form under Erik ten Hag. Naturally, eyes are on Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw but those with spare cash may want a Bruno Fernandes punt.

The perfect differentials are those who are low-owned yet have proven their FPL quality time and time again. Fernandes is in just 3.5 per cent of squads but brought 26 goals and 22 assists in his first season-and-a-half.

After facing an unconvincing Man City, he goes to Crystal Palace. The hosts have lost their last two home matches 3-0 and 4-0.


Although Thomas Frank has confirmed that Ivan Toney will return to Brentford’s starting XI on Saturday, the appeal of Bryan Mbeumo should not be ignored.

For £1.5m less, he starts most games and bagged 12 points during the 3-1 win over Liverpool. Not only does he enable money being spent elsewhere, the Bees are about to go against Bournemouth (H), Leeds (a) and Southampton (H).
