With Gameweek 35 just a few days away, we look at players who provide good options as differentials. We look at "Form", "Average Points Per Match","Goals Scored","Assists","Clean Sheets","Influence","Creativity","Threat","Passing Accuracy","Tackles Won" and "Bonus Points".
Our Gameweek 35 choices are as follows
Lucas Moura, 6.7mil, 6.9% owned
Firstly for this bumper GW we have the Brazilian star Lucas Moura. We have no less than 8 teams with a double gameweek this week and Spurs are one of those teams with 2 games. Lucas was brought last season from PSG for 25mil and hasn't really established himself in the starting XI in his time for Spurs. He already has 10 goals this season so just imagine what he would do if he was a regular starter? With Harry Kane injured for the foreseeable future and Dele Alli just returning to full fitness maybe now is the time for Lucas to cement his place in the Spurs team for the rest of the season. Tottenham's next few fixtures look quite appealing too, ok next they play Man City in the league away but if you look past that they have a home games vs a faltering Brighton team in the same GW, then next week another home game vs the Hammers West Ham followed by Bournemouth and Everton, a lot of mid table teams who may already be on the beaches. Surely Moura will start the majority of the games in Kane's absence, and if he does you can get used to more great finishing like he showed on Saturday morning in the 4-0 battering of Huddersfield. Moura is in good form, with 4 goals in the last 2 starts and Spurs have scored 6 goals in the last 2 games. Plenty of ammunition for you to get Lucas in preparation for the DGW35.
Nacho Monreal, 5.4mil, 1.2%
So moving on from Lucas we have another DGW differential for you. The veteran Spanish left sided defender Nacho Monreal. Now I was about to choose Bernd Leno for the Arsenal coverage this week but I went for Monreal for two main reasons, he is less owned then the German stopper and he's named after my favourite Mexican treat.. the nacho. Ok on to footballing matters now, an Arsenal defender, you may wonder why? Well their run-in is pretty good and they are vastly improving, although their away form really sucks. Arsenal face off against both Palace and Wolves in this double gameweek, then next week play Leicester City, followed by Brighton and Burnley. I believe they can get maybe 3 clean sheets from the remaining 5 games for Arsenal. Arsenal have only conceded 1 goal in the last 4 league games, and in the game because these 4 they only conceded to a wrongly awarded Harry Kane penalty, so their defence can be relied upon and it's not the soft centre you normally associate with the Arsenal back line. Rotation could be a problem but rest assured he will play the lionshare of the remaining games for Arsenal baring injuries of course. Last season he got 5 goals and 2 assists, a great scoring return for a non set piece taking defender...
Nathan Redmond, 5.3mil, 2.8%
Lastly we have the winger converted to striker Nathan Redmond. A speedy and tricky winger who is a more dangerous FPL player now he is being played as a striker by the new manager. Shane Long and Danny Ings have been missing on and off from the saints attacking line recently so it's a good job Redmond is in decent knick. Southampton again are one of the DGW teams to play in GW35 where they will play away at both Newcastle and Watford, then after that they play Bournemouth, West Ham and already relegated Huddersfield. No real naughty fixtures and you would be confident with keeping your Southampton assets till the end of the season. Nathan is in decent form too with 2 goals and one assists in the last 3 games and 5 goals and 4 assists for the season. Southampton need one more push to secure their premier league status for another year and Redmond will be at the forefront for the Saints to achieve their main goal. Also he is very cheap and less owned than the other Southampton midfielder earning rave reviews James Ward-Prowse.
