Best differentials in FPL Gameweek 22

We take a look at some of the best differentials in FPL Gameweek 22. 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 in FPL Gameweek 22 can be very beneficial to FPL managers in their quest to reaching their goals. Differentials can be vital to those that are looking to get ahead of their competition or gain rank.

Fixture ticker

Below we can see teams with the best fixtures at the top, all of the way down to teams with the worst fixtures at the bottom.

Wout Weghorst

Manchester United face a double Gameweek against Crystal Palace and Leeds in Gameweek 22. Amongst all teams in the league in the last six matches they rank joint second for goals, third for attempts on goal, second for big chances total and first for shots on target. This could indicate, along with the double Gameweek, that the Reds are a must in terms of investment.

Managers won’t forget the performances of Wout Weghorst (£6m) last season for Burnley. However, Manchester United are a far better team and playing with players who create a lot more chances will only help the striker perform. Weghorst proved his quality in the Bundesliga, scoring 20 goals and creating eight assists in his 20/21 campaign. His ability to finish was reflected in his recent World Cup campaign where he scored two for Netherlands.

Weghorst has just 0.8% ownership in the game. With the confidence of scoring in his most recent match behind him, the Dutch striker could have bags of potential in the round ahead. For that reason, Weghorst could be one of the best differentials in FPL Gameweek 22.

Wilfried Gnonto

Leeds face a double Gameweek against Nottingham Forest and Man United in the round ahead. This season they rank amongst the top 10 teams for goals in the box, attempts on goal and big chances total. This could reinforce the appeal of the Leeds attack.

Finding a Leeds attacker cheap enough to invest in and easy enough to bench in the future could be key. For that reason, looking to Wilfried Gnonto (£5m) could be a wise move. The striker proved his potential in Gameweek 19, scoring and picking up three bonus. He also ranks first for passes and first for successful passes in the final third.

Gnonto has just 0.9% ownership in the game heading into Gameweek 22. With some promising stats and an increasing reliability in terms of minutes, he could be a fantastic option for the round ahead and long term.

Riyad Mahrez

Manchester City may be facing a tough fixture against Tottenham on the fixture ticker but their opponent’s defensive stats are there to attack. In fact, in the last six matches Tottenham rank the second worst for goals conceded and the second worst for shots in the box conceded.

One player who could take advantage of that is Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez (£7.6m). The Algerian is in blistering form. Since the restart, Mahrez has racked up a serious tally of 45 points in FPL. The midfielder has returned in five of his last six matches, showing some brilliant form. Mahrez has just 7.3% ownership heading into the round ahead.

Kaoru Mitoma

Brighton sit third on the fixture ticker with a game against Brighton in Gameweek 22. Amongst all teams in the last six matches Brighton rank first for goals scored and fourth for shots on target. This suggests managers could look into their attacking assets moving forward.

One of the best ways to invest in the Brighton attack could be Kaoru Mitoma (£5.1m). The Japanese midfielder has been in fine form as of late. In fact, in the last six matches, Mitoma has secured a return in five of them. His upcoming opponent have conceded more goals than any other team in the league so Mitoma has huge potential in the Gameweek ahead.
