FPL Gameweek 27 Differentials 2021/22
Burnley has a double gameweek, first visiting Selhurst Park, and then hosting Leicester City at Turf Moor. Top teams like Liverpool and Chelsea miss out on a fixture this week due to their EFL Cup Final at Wembley. Along with this Arsenal too has a blank gameweek.
1. James Tarkowski (Defender) – 4.9 Million
A double gameweek for Burnley makes their defender a top differential choice for us. Selected by only 1.5% of managers worldwide, he also has scored 1 goal, assisted 2 this season besides helping keep 5 clean sheets. Burnley has been defensively solid this season, conceding only 29 goals so far, which is the fewest among teams in the bottom half of the table.
The Clarets would have a chance to escape the relegation zone this week, and they would try their best defensively to do so. The center-back being a threat from setpieces has also accumulated the 2nd most FPL points than his fellow defenders (63), only behind Mee, so far this season. With Mee, Pope being comparatively popular choices, Tarkowski would be our differential choice for the upcoming game week.
2. Conor Gallagher (Midfielder) – 6.2 Million
Conor Gallagher from Crystal Palace became a sensation for quite some time between the Fantasy Premier League managers, but now the effective ownership of Connor Gallagher has come down to just 4.6 % among the top 10k managers playing the Fantasy Premier League, basically removing the dead inactive accounts which still contain the Cobham product.
The young English midfielder scored and assisted last night for Crystal Palace gathering a huge 12 point tally as Patrick Vieira‘s men won against Watford 4-1. With his off-the-ball movement and smooth passing, he is really developing into one of the most lethal midfielders in the Premier League currently.
The Englishman has played 22 matches in the league so far and has scored 8 times assisting thrice. His per 90 non-penalty goals come up to an average of 0.25 (xG/90), with 0.31 npxG+ xA. Another brilliant statistic defining the game of Gallagher is his average progressive passes recorded per 90 minutes of football which averages around 3.62. A midfielder who possesses all qualities to become a future star can become a superstar at your fantasy premier league team coming in as a potential differential option.
3. Raheem Sterling (Midfielder) – 10.7 Million
The Manchester City winger is currently ranked 2nd in the most in-form FPL players at the moment. Having accumulated 29 points in the past 3 gameweeks, the England international is still owned by only 4.1% of fantasy managers all-over. Man City faces Everton away this week and if managers are using a Free Hit this week, Sterling might be worth a shot. Otherwise, do rethink about the transfer, due to his high price.
Sterling’s 10 goals so far and an assist in the PL have made him collect 110 points so far. Furthermore, an xG+xA of 0.80 per 90 also includes the penalties he might take. Besides, a winger having 2 shots on goal on average per match, in a side like Manchester City, against a struggling Everton, does look tempting.
4. Dejan Kulusevski (Midfielder) – 6.0 Million
The arrival of Dejan Kulusevski from the Italian league to the English Premier League was marked with an outstanding performance against the defending champions Manchester City. His inclusion meant that Manchester City is still within touching distance at the top of the table from their closest competitor Liverpool.
The opening goal scorer as well as an assist provider in the dying minutes of the game Dejan is now looking forward to becoming one of the leading attackers in the Tottenham Hotspur team with his English and South Korean teammates respectively.
Being listed on the fantasy premier league game as a midfielder for just 6.0 million euros, Dejan is in a perfect position to bring both goal contribution points and clean sheet points to the FPL team. He also completes 2.8 progressive Passes per 90 minutes of football as well as an incredible tally of 6.1 progressive carries per 90 minutes. Safe to say, this differential option can help you achieve newer ranks in newer routes. His xG of 0.21 and xA of 0.27 per 90 minutes to action are no less of an accomplishment, coming from an entirely different set of leagues with different playing styles altogether.
5. Che Adams (Forward) – 6.9 million
A lesser popular choice than his striking partner Broja, the Scotsman Che Adams has collected more FPL points this season than the Albanian. With Norwich to play in the upcoming Gameweek, Southampton would have several FDR 2 rated fixtures for the upcoming gameweeks. Hence, Adams might be a decent investment. The Saints’ forward has an xG+xA of 0.38, making up to his 6 goals and 2 assists so far this season.
Adams also has collected a notable 21 points total, in the past 3 gameweeks. He has a 57.6% shot accuracy, averaging 1.1 on target every match. Norwich has been defensively fragile this season (2nd worst in goals against), and Southampton is unexpectedly playing well this season. Therefore, managers can consider investing in Adams for the upcoming few weeks.
