Fantasy Premier League differentials ahead of Gameweek 28

With Premier League action coming up tonight as well as tomorrow, it’s about time you started considering players for your Fantasy Team.

Heading into Gameweek 28, there are some fixtures worth keeping an eye on as we see Stoke City take on Newcastle United, Manchester United facing Watford, Arsenal versus Swansea, and Aston Villa hosting Everton.

Every club will feature this week, but you should also be planning ahead as only 12 teams will be playing during Gameweek 30.

We are now ready to drop some hints over which players are worth a gamble as we name a few differential selections heading into the upcoming matches.

Last week we went with Giannelli Imbula, Emannuel Emenike, as well as Heung-Min Son, but all three selections failed to live up to expectations, earning very little points in the process.

However, we hope this week will be different as we take a look at three Fantasy Premier League differentials ahead of Gameweek 28.

Danny Welbeck


Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck (7.3 and owned by 0.4%) would be a very good differential given his form in recent matches as well as his low ownership percentage. With the Gunners playing a struggling Swansea City side, he can very well replicate his performances once again.

He scored the winner against Leicester City in the previous round of fixtures as a substitute and added to that tally with one goal and one assist in the 3-2 defeat to former club Manchester United this past weekend.

Xherdan Shaqiri

Stoke City midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri (6.4 and owned by 1.7%) is bound to continue his fine form after managing to pick up two assist from his previous two matches. The Potters take on 18th place Newcastle United at home as they look to make it three wins in three.

Shaqiri managed to pick up five points in the 3-1 over Bournemouth before adding another seven to his tally in the 2-1 victory over Aston Villa. He has so far netted two times this term while providing another five assists.

Marcus Rashford


Manchester United hero Marcus Rashford (4.6 and owned by 2.3%) is slowly getting picked by a host of Fantasy players after registering 16 points against Arsenal with two goals and one assist. He scored two on his debut in the Europa League last week before scoring another brace on his Premier League debut this past weekend.

With Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, and Will Keane all currently injured, Rashford will surely start the upcoming fixture against Watford, who previously drew 0-0 against Bournemouth. If the striker manages to add to his tally, he may no longer be a differential come the weekend.
