So, with the short FA Cup break done and dusted, we are already looking forward to gameweek 21 and with that comes another FPL Differentials XI article! Unfortunately last week we saw another red arrow in the fantasy Premier League, so we had to shuffle up the Differentials XI before we lose more ground. Before we go any further, here is how the team looked at the end of gameweek 20:
With the wildcard becoming active, we didn’t waste time using it!
With Chelsea finally showing signs of growing a pair, we decided to bring in Costa for Ayoze. Jagielka steps in for the injured Coleman. As everyone knows, Stoke have been quite strong at the back, barring their last couple of games. With Butland’s ownership soaring, we brought in Wollscheid for Lovren. Courtois & Adrian have made their way into our team, with Lloris & Gomes getting the cut. Despite getting rid of Lloris, we needed Spurs cover at the back, and who better than Walker who has the ability to attack and get bonus points, and he replaces Van Dijk. Lastly, Firmino and Ayew are taken out for Shaqiri and Martial.
Starting XI: Courtois (6.5%), Delaney (2.1%), Wollscheid (4.2%), Walker (4.3%), Payet (8.4%), Shaqiri (2.4%), Ramsey (4.5%), Silva (5.6%), Costa (6.7%), Martial (8.0%), Deeney (4.4%)
Bench: Adrian (2.9%), Deulofeu (2.8%), Dawson (5.0%), Jagielka (6.6%)
Adrian, Deulofeu, Dawson and Jagielka will be on the bench (which is risky since they could rack up points), but I’m going with my gut here and hoping that it pays off. With Stoke playing Norwich at home, we will be handing the armband to Shaqiri this gameweek!
With numerous teams struggling, have you played your wildcard? Tweet us and tell us which differentials you have gone with! Have an awesome gameweek, guys and girls!
