Best differentials in Gameweek 27
We take a look at some of the best differentials in FPL Gameweek 27. 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 27 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.
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.
Brentford have a double Gameweek this week. They face two teams that rank amongst the worst six teams for goals conceded this season. Whilst most flock to the more obvious options like Ivan Toney (£7.7m) those looking to go differential could go for fellow striker Bryan Mbeumo (£5.8m).
The Nigerian international has picked up five goals and three assists already this season. Mbeumo may have picked up just three returns in his last 10 Premier League matches, but two of those were double-digit hauls. This could indicate that Mbeumo has explosive potential and against two relegation battling teams, could have great potential for the Gameweek ahead.
Alexis Mac Allister
Brighton also have a double Gameweek this week. They play fixtures against Leeds and Crystal Palace who are both struggling for form as of late. Brighton however, are in top form. In the last six Gameweeks they rank the third best for shots on target (33), joint first for minutes per chance (5.2) and joint second for big chances (21).
Investing in the Brighton attack could be key but whilst many opt for his teammates and fellow midfielders Kaoru Mitoma (£5.5m) and Solly March (£5.1m) those looking to pick out a differential could go for 4.2% owned Alexis Mac Allister (£5.4m). The Argentinian is playing in a new advanced role, takes his teams penalties and set pieces and also notched up a massive 14 points in his most recent game.
Southampton are another team who play two fixtures in Gameweek 27 with matches against Manchester United and Brentford. One of their opponents, Manchester United rank amongst some of the worst teams for key defensive data points in the last six Gameweeks. More specifically the Reds rank as the worst team in the league for attempts conceded from set plays (36).
James Ward-Prowse is arguably one of the best set piece takers in the league. The midfielder has managed to hit double-digits for direct free kicks scored. He also takes penalties and corners which boosts his appeal. Furthermore, Ward-Prowse edges all of his offensive teammates in terms of expected goal involvement in the last six matches.
Liverpool do not have a double Gameweek this week but what they do have is a fixture against a struggling Bournemouth. In fact amongst all teams in the last six matches they rank the worst for shots in the box conceded (77), the worst for attempts conceded (121) and the worst for shots on target conceded (36).
After dismantling Manchester United in their most recent match 7-0 Liverpool’s confidence will be high. Amongst the frontline is the 4.7% owned Cody Gakpo (£7.7m). The Dutchman has found his rhythm with the Reds and bagged a brace in his most recent game. Amongst midfielders in the last six matches he also ranks joint first for big chances total (six).
