With the double gameweek now over, a number of Fantasy Premier League players will have surely seen a few changes in their respective league tables.
Here is exactly how differentials can play a huge part in your upcoming selection as you hope to build on your previous momentum or catch up to those who have a quite a few players missing matches this week.
The six teams not playing this weekend are, Manchester United, Everton, Watford, Crystal Palace, West Ham United, and Norwich City, so be sure to change your team accordingly.
Last week we selected Liverpool’s James Milner, Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, and United’s Marcus Rashford, with all three providing some decent points.
Milner only managed to play one game despite the double gameweek, picking up a total of 11 points, while Rashford registered 10 for his role in both matches.
However, Iwobi registered the least with only six from his two games after being unable to replicate his previous performances during the clashes.
So, as we head into gameweek 35, here are three Fantasy Premier League differentials for you to consider.
Leicester City striker Shinji Okazaki (5.6 and owned by 0.9%) will be given a tough task leading the lines for his club following Jamie Vardy’s ban for his red card picked up at the weekend. He has featured in almost every match for his side this season and is likely to be given the full 90 minutes against Swansea City.
Okazaki has already scored five goals while providing another two assists in term, but could very well add to that tally given that Leicester need all three points to continue their title charge. Swansea recently suffered a 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United as the Foxes look to capitalize on their drop in confidence.
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Erik Lamela (6.8 and owned by 1.0%) has picked up a good run of form in recent weeks, registering one goal and two assists in his previous two matches. Having already provided seven assists this season, he will be ready to help his team’s attack as they look to overtake Leicester City to the Premier League title.
Given his form for manager Mauricio Pochettino, Lamela is expected to start when they host West Bromwich Albion at home on Monday. The entire team will be out on the attack given that they need all three points to keep their title chances alive, a factor that could reward the midfielder with some decent points.
Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey (7.8 and owned by 2.6%) has once again returned to the first team following an injury picked up last month. He played his first full 90 minutes since his comeback in the 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, providing both goals and registering 12 points due to the double gameweek.
With manager Arsene Wenger needing more wins to ensure a third place finish, he is expected to urge his team to attack when they take on relegation threatened side Sunderland this weekend. With five goals and five assists so far this term, Ramsey looks set to add more to that tally heading into the upcoming fixture.
