With only five Gameweeks remaining to determine our end-of-season rank, now is the time to really push on and go differential to boost your rank. In this article, I will discuss four differentials you should consider to end your season with. Whether you’re looking to push on in rank, get an edge on mini-league rivals or play for enjoyment we have you covered. All our picks are under 10% ownership.
Timothy Castagne – 5.8m
A goal and assist against Crystal Palace and West Brom respectively highlight Castagne’s attacking potential. He also plays for a Leicester side who have the league’s third-best XG conceded (4.45) in the last six matches. Southampton and Newcastle provide excellent short-term fixtures for output on both ends of the pitch. While fixtures against United, Chelsea, and Spurs are likely to be close, cagey affairs perfect for clean sheets.
Seamus Coleman – 4.8m
Since being highlighted in our differentials article a few weeks back Coleman has been involved in three clean sheets and managed two assists. At 4.8m he represents great value, surprisingly ranking sixth among defenders for xA (0.64) over the last four matches.
Everton’s fixtures also look great, with fixtures against Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Wolves, and the recently leaky Hammers. Everton are also set to play a double gameweek, most likely in GW35. Boasting an upcoming double gameweek, great fixtures, exceptional value, and low ownership Coleman could be a great buy for the season run-in.
Matheus Pereira – 5.5m
Since Sam Allardyce deployed Pereira through the middle against Chelsea he has managed four goals and two assists. He also sits second behind Salah for xGI (3.37) in those last four matches. West Brom’s fixtures may look tricky on paper, however, they are facing inconsistent Liverpool and Arsenal sides, a recently leaky West Ham team, and a Wolves side who have just conceded four to Burnley. Pereira’s set-piece duties also provide him with another route to points.
Gareth Bale – 9.1m
With Spurs set to have only one game a week from now until the end of the season, this should provide Bale with enough rest time between matches. Son may be the safer pick out of the two however, Son is out of form and Bale provides a great differential to get an edge on mini-league rivals and gain rank. Spurs’ fixtures also look brilliant and could even warrant a triple up on the Spurs attack.
