This article will highlight 5 differentials (under 5% ownership) across a variety of positions to help push managers up the ranks over the coming gameweeks starting in gameweek 29.
Kiko Femenia (£4.2m) – Watford – 0.4% TSB
He has come straight back into the side at RB after returning from injury and helped in the incredible 3-0 defeat of leaders Liverpool. Watford face Crystal Palace, Leicester and Burnley in their next 3 who all failed to score in gameweek 28 against teams in the bottom half of the table. Kiko is also know for his attacking threat as he gets forward down the right hand side and puts crossed into the likes of Deeney. As well as this, Watford do not blank in gameweek 31, so if you do not plan to play your Free Hit, they Kiko and other Watford players will be very helpful to own.
Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m) – Tottenham – 2.0% TSB
Since joining spurs he has 2 returns and 2 blanks with 2 bonus points averaging over 5 points per game. With Son and Kane out, he has had to step up and being one of the main attacking threats in the team. Since the injury to son, the attacking threat has been mixed partly due to the form of Alli who forms a key central role in the attack. Alli is also a nice differential for 8.3 and 4.8% owned but the cheaper price of Bergwijn for similar output made me choose him. In gameweek 29 he faces Burnley followed by Man U at home. The pace that Bergwijn offers could easily be too much for Burnley to handle.
Ismaïla Sarr (£6.2m) – Watford – 1.1% TSB
Gameweek 28 was his first start since returning from injury where he returned 19 points at home to Liverpool with 2 goals and an assist. Watford look a different team when Sarr is there. His pace and strength combined offers a new dimension to their attack that many opponents have found hard to manage. In gameweek 29 he faced Crystal Palace away in a very important match for Watford. Palace have looked better defensively in the past two matches but have been very flakey throughout the season. This is then followed by Man U at home where like with Liverpool Sarr’s attributes may be well suited to causing problems.
Bukayo Saka (£4.6m) – Arsenal – 2.1% TSB
Saka plays as a Left Back but this has helped his attacking output as he has 3 attacking returns in the last 5 gameweeks. In gameweek 29 Arsenal host West Ham who have struggled recently and may get a double gameweek with the second match being Man City (this has not been confirmed at the time of writing). With Tierney and Kolasinac being injured it means Saka should be nailed on in the Arsenal side for the next few gameweeks. At his price, he is easy to bench and rotate and play only in easy fixtures for Arsenal.
Olivier Giroud (£6.5m) – Chelsea – 1.5% TSB
With Abraham being injured again Lampard is favouring Giroud to lead the line, an opportunity which he has taken well. He has returned 14 points combined in his two starts with a goal and assist averaging 7 points per game. In gameweek 29 Chelsea host an Everton side who haven’t kept a clean sheet since gameweek 22 and have averaged 2 goals conceded in their last 3 away fixtures. With this, Giroud will want to continue his form and keep his place in the Chelsea starting lineup going forward without Abraham. Chelsea may well see some of their other players returning like Pulisic or Hudson Odoi which will also help Giroud due to him receiving a better service.
Thanks for reading and good luck in gameweek 29!
