- Harry Kane
- Son Heung-Min
- Dejan Kulusevski
- Bukayo Saka
- Aaron Ramsdale

- Raul Jimenez
- Phil Coutinho

With so many players owned by over 10% of the game managers will want to invest in some good differentials. Owning the right differential will allow the potential for a green arrow in a Gameweek were the potential upside for returns is small.
Owned by just 0.3% of FPL managers Eriksen is one of the biggest and potentially explosive FPL assets that managers could invest in. Eriksen returned his first Premier League assist for Brentford since signing during the January transfer window.
Thomas Frank has been rightly cautious with his star midfielder as a result of his cardiac arrest at last summers Euro 2020 competition. However, Eriksen has now played 90 minutes in the last two Premier League games.
Brentford play Leicester in Gameweek 30. The foxes have kept just two clean sheets since Gameweek 20 and in that time have conceded 12 goals. This bodes well for Eriksen’s attacking potential.
Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard is owned by just 5.6%. His eight point haul in Gameweek 28 put him firmly on the radar of FPL managers. However, with teammate Buyako Saka so popular in the game many FPL managers decided against the midfield double up.
Odegaard has created 10 chances in the last two gameweeks. This is more than any other midfielder in the game.
He also has a better shot conversion rate than any other Arsenal midfield player.
Ramsey is one of the most popular differentials in the game. He is currently owned by 9.2% of the game and that is likely to rise ahead of the Gameweek 30 deadline.
Gameweek 29 saw Ramsey record his fourth double digit haul since Gameweek 17. In the same period Ramsey has had 15 attempts on goal, of which seven have been on target. This is more than the likes of Raphinha, Jadon Sancho and Bernando Silva.
At just £4.7m Ramsey is also one of the cheapest playing midfielders in the game making him a great enabler. Owning Ramsey for Gameweek 30 looks promising for returns as well as enabling a redistribution of funds to afford the likes of Harry Kane. Ramsey’s goal in Gameweek 29 also makes him one of the inform differentials for Gameweek 30.
Barnes is owned by just 2.9% of FPL managers. He has also returned in three of his last four Premier League appearances for Leicester. In that time he has registered 23 FPL points for his owners.
Since Gameweek 25 Barnes has had 16 attempts on goal, more than any of his Leicester City team mates and the same as Bruno Fernandes in 90 minutes less game time.
His 117 touches in the final third is second across the Leicester team and is more than popular FPL assets such as Mason Mount and Emile Smith-Rowe.
