It’s a mixed bag for the Differentials XI in gameweek 21. Before we continue, here’s how the team looked at the end of the week:
In defence we scored a combined 22 points, with 14 of those coming from Rudiger. Danilo managed to bring in a clean sheet, whilst Gomes and Robertson could only muster a point a piece.
In the middle of the park we managed to bring in the star man of the week, Willian, who scored 17 points! Other than that, there wasn’t much to shout about in the middle with Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lingard and Ritchie all disappointing, scoring 6 between them.
Up top we could only muster 7 points between the 3 of them, with Rashford being the captain…
Now onto this week’s team:
This week we have two keepers who have the potential to score big this week. Ederson (5.5%) saved a penalty, scored 3 bonus points and with a home fixture against Watford, it should be a minimum of 6 points this week. That said, it’s Hugo Lloris (8.3%) who starts this week with two fixtures against Swansea and West Ham.
Continuing the double gameweek theme we have both Jan Vertonghen (7.9%) and Aaron Cresswell (2.9%) who will both hopefully have 180 minutes to score points! We have also doubled up in the Man City defensive cover with Danilo (2.3%) as City come up against Watford. Our final two defenders are Christian Fuchs (2.0%) and Charlie Daniels (7.0%) who have favourable fixtures against Huddersfield and Brighton.
In the middle of the park we have gone with 3 double gameweeker’s in Heung-min Son (5.1%), Manuel Lanzini (1.0%) and Marko Arnautovic (3.2%). All three have two fixtures but the fixtures are also favourable, with the potential of fantasy points! Riyad Mahrez (7.5%) and Sadio Mane (6.5%) are our final two midfielders who play Huddersfield and Burnley this gameweek. With the fear of rotation, both should play as neither played the full 90 minutes in gameweek 21.
Finally up top we have Marcus Rashford (8.1%), Joselu (0.7%) and Alexandre Lacazette (9.3%). When it comes to differential forwards it’s tough, as 7 of the top 10 scorers are over 10% TSB. That said, Rashford may be playing through the middle this week with Lukaku out injured and he may just fancy a goal or two against Everton. Joselu comes up against Stoke and Lacazette has a tough fixture against Chelsea.
