Differential Potential – Gameweek 24

The FA cup weekend threw up more shocks than you could shake a stick at.

Everton’s set piece confusion led to a mauling at the hands of the Lions while West Ham were also bitten by…the Wombles?

Spurs continued a horrible week, meaning it’ll almost certainly be another trophyless season for Poch and co.

The magic of the cup is well and truly alive, but let’s get back to business. There’s nothing more magic than a good differential.

Here’s this week’s eleven.


Setgio Rico – 8% owned

Fulham are due a clean sheet, right? Maybe. A home game against Brighton is as good a chance as any.


Yan Valery – 1%

Cedric’s surprise move to Inter Milan this week (that man’s agent is a genius) means Valery is pretty much certain to “come on over” and to start at RWB against Crystal Palace in midweek. Only 1% ownership too. Surprising.

Lewis Dunk – 39%

Lewis Dunk loves an aerial test. Aleksandar Mitrovic will ensure he has one in midweek. Good chance of a clean sheet at Fulham, too.

Yerry Mina – 31%

Yerr Mina’s transition to English hasn’t been easy. Anywhere that isn’t The Den will be a more comfortable environment this week for the Colombian. Huddersfield should be more welcoming in more ways than one.

Callum Chambers – 26%

We all love on OOP player. Chambers is putting up the numbers too. A 26% ownership is criminally low.


James Ward Prowse – 46%

I can’t quite believe that JWP still has an ownership of below 60%. Quite simply, if he’s available in your Fantrax league, you should go and get him.

Jason Puncheon – 5%

An old FPL favourite has some value again. As previously mentioned, Puncheon’s Gameweek 24 opponents Everton can’t defend set pieces. Or defend in general. Good news for The Huddersfield new man.

Ryan Babel – 32%

I’m surprised by Babel’s ownership after a promising debut. He looks like a good source of key passes and shots on target so should see returns soon. Brighton at home next up.

Ainsley Maitland Niles – 12%

I don’t love this pick. At all. It is, however, a decent way into the Arsenal team who face Cardiff on Tuesday. Should have plenty of opportunities to get forward from right back.

Alex Iwobi – 59%

Assuming he gets the nod over Mesut Ozil, Iwobi is a great pick thanks to Arsenal’s aforementioned great match up. The Nigerian seems to have the upper hand in Unai Emery’s estimations.


Fernando Llorente – 43%

It’s only fair to give him another chance. His goal at Chelsea on Thursday should give him some sort of confidence going into the game at home to Watford. Spurs need a win.
