We take a look at some of the best differentials for FPL Gameweek 38. With the help of the Fantasy Football Scout members area, we can use its underlying stats and fixture difficulty rating system to help us pick out some of the best players with low ownership for the round ahead.
Looking at the best differentials for FPL Gameweek 38 can be very beneficial to FPL managers in their quest to reaching their goals. Differentials are also vital to those that are looking to get ahead of their competition or gain rank.
Everton go into the final round knowing a win will guarantee their safety in top flight football next season. They also face Bournemouth in their final fixture. The Cherries have been woeful defensively this season. In fact they rank second worst for goals conceded (70), the worst for shots on target (198) and the worst for shots in the box conceded (394).
Bournemouth are a team to target and Everton will be highly motivated. One way into the Toffees offensive line is Dwight McNeil (£5.1m). Amongst all players in the league in the last six matches the midfielder sits seventh for non-penalty expected goal involvement (3.41). McNeil also claimed a mammoth 21 points in one of his most recent matches.
Fans have seen considerable improvements from Crystal Palace since Roy Hodgson took over as manager. In fact, the Eagles have managed to win five of their nine matches under their new boss. They may be guaranteed safety but so are their opponents Nottingham Forest.
Nottingham Forest have also shown huge defensive fragilities throughout their campaign. When compared to all teams this season they rank in the worst five for many of the key defensive data points. One player who could scrutinise his opponents backline is Eberechi Eze (£5.6m). The winger has bagged three returns in his last six matches including a double-digit haul of 16 points.
Liverpool have had a disappointing season. However, they have been sustaining some of the best offensive stats in the league. When compared to all teams in the division so far the Reds rank best for goals scored (71), the best for shots in the box (416), second best for big chances total (120) and third for shots on target (197).
Investing in the Liverpool attack could be key especially when considering the fact they face a relegated Southampton whom have shipped three or more goals in four of their last six league matches. Roberto Firmino (£8m) will officially play his last match for Liverpool this week and with a goal in his most recent game, he has the motivation and confidence to end his Liverpool career on a high.
Tottenham have one more match to try to claim a European spot. They face Leeds in Gameweek 38 who have to win the game to have any chance of surviving relegation. The strugglers have been poor defensively this season. This can be reflected in the fact that they have conceded more big chances than any side in the league (108).
Many managers will be looking to Tottenham’s standout option Harry Kane (£11.4m). However, those looking for a lowly owned player could opt for Son Heung-min (£11.5m). The South Korean international will be looking to top off a below average season with a good performance this week and taking into account his opponents defensive data, he could have bags potential.
