It’s time for another round of Premier League fixtures as we look at three players you should consider when picking your Fantasy Premier League team ahead of Gameweek 25.
Some notable fixtures worth keeping an eye on are Liverpool’s match against a struggling Sunderland side, Arsenal’s visit to Bournemouth, and also Tottenham Hotspur’s game against Watford.
Last week we went with West Ham United winger Michail Antonio, Chelsea attacking midfielder Oscar, and Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling, with only one proving to be the big differential.
Both Oscar and Sterling had quiet games, but Antonio, who was worth only 5.3, managed to pick up 11 points following the Hammers’ home win over Aston Villa.
Picking differentials will always be seen as a risk, but if your gamble does pay off, you’re bound to make up some room or even overtake the fantasy player ahead of you in your respective league table.
So, whether you agree with our selections or not, here are three Fantasy Premier League differentials for you to consider ahead of Gameweek 25.
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana (7.3 and owned by 0.6%) has played regularly for the club this season and is in line to feature against Sunderland this weekend.
He has so far only scored one while providing another one this season, but due to an injury to Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino being played as a forward, Lallana will surely take part against a struggling Black Cats side.
Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster (4.8 and owned by 1.3%) has been perfect between the sticks for his side since making a return from a lengthy injury lay-off.
He has played the last four consecutive games for the Saints this season, scoring six in three games and picking up 12 in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal due to a host of amazing saves. Forster can now make it five clean sheets in five when they face West Ham United this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur star Kevin Wimmer (4.6 and owned by 0.1%) only featured two times this season, but is in line to start a number of upcoming matches given the lengthy injury to defensive star Jan Vertonghen.
Wimmer picked up six points in his first full 90 minutes last weekend when Spurs beat Norwich City and could do the same against Watford tomorrow. Given his relatively cheap fee and low ownership rate, he could prove to be a good investment as well.
