Best Differentials for Gameweek 36

The new round of FPL is edging closer so in this article we take a look at some of the best differentials for Gameweek 36. We do this with the help of the Official Fantasy Football page and the tools in the Fantasy Football Scout members area.

Differentials are players who have less than 10% ownership. If successful they help to gain both rank and an edge in your mini-leagues. With that in mind lets take a look at four of the best differentials for Gameweek 36.

Noni Madueke – 0.2%

There’s a lot to like about Chelsea for the latter stages of the season. The Blues have a lovely double in Gameweek 37 so bringing in their players now could be a wise play. Chelsea although inconsistent in terms of results, continue to maintain a good scoring rate. In fact, they have netted at least two goals in five of their last six matches.

West Ham lay ahead for Chelsea, highlighting the fixture as a London Derby. The Hammers seem to be struggling at the back – conceding a massive nine goals in their last three matches. Because of that and the above, buying a Chelsea attacker this week could be rewarding.

Cole Palmer is of course the standout attacking option and some are even opting for the frustrating Nicolas Jackson. However, Noni Madueke (£5.3m) could be the next best Chelsea pick. As well as starting all four of his sides last four matches he has also bagged four attacking returns in his last five features. Madueke has both form, fixture and minutes to punish a poor West Ham backline this week.

Morgan Gibbs-White – 1.7%

For managers without the Bench Boost chip, it could be case of targeting whats in front of you. That leads onto our next pick at Nottingham Forest. Forest are approaching a season defining match this week but it’s a fixture they will expect to take three points from.

Sheffield United are up next for Nottingham Forest, a side who have already been relegated. The Blades have had a torrid season but more significantly for our next pick, awful defensively. As well as conceding a huge 13 goals in their last three matches, Sheffield United go into their next fixture with much less motivation, knowing they will play in the Championship next season regardless.

To target the Sheffield United backline, Nottingham Forest have several interesting options. But, their talisman is midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White (£5.7m). Gibbs-White has been hugely influential for his side this season. One example of his potential is the three assists and two goals he produced five matches prior to his last two. This week could be one of few opportunities for FPL managers to target Sheffield United before they go down and so Morgan Gibbs-White eases his way amongst the best differentials for Gameweek 36.

Josko Gvardiol – 6.5% Ownership

Manchester City look like they are on an unstoppable path to another Premier League title. Although inconsistent for most of the season defensively, they seem to be strengthening recently. Manchester City go into the next match with two back-to-back clean sheets under their belt.

Manchester City have a good opportunity to keep a third clean sheet this week. Wolves lay ahead, a team who have been impressive this season offensively. Many within the community however would have failed to notice they failed to score in two of their last three matches.

Buying into the Manchester City defence can be frustrating, mostly due to rotation. Joao Cancelo was the last Manchester City defender many flocked to for attacking returns, none of their defenders have offered that same excitement since, or at least until now. Josko Gvardiol (£5m) seems to be in a purple patch of attacking form. In fact, in his last five matches the Croatian has produced three goals and one assist. With multiple routes to points, Gvardiol could be an excellent differential for both this week and until the end of the season.

Kai Havertz – 7.6% Ownership

Arsenal have been brilliant this season and shows no signs of slowing down. The Gooners have bags of motivation as they challenge for the title so they will not be lacking. Many within the community will exclude Arsenal attackers due to the fact they do not double in Gameweek 37. But, with 10 goals in their last three matches doing so could mean missing out.

A lot of Arsenal’ appeal this week comes from their fixture. Bournemouth have shown huge improvements this season offensively but they continue to concede a huge amount of goals – ranking amongst the worst five teams for total goals conceded so far.

Spearheading the attack is of course Kai Havertz (£7.4m). Havertz has been fantastic this season but his output seems to be increasing as the pressure for results intensifies. The German has amassed four goals and three assists in his last six league matches so could be a wise pick ahead of a limited schedule.
