In this feature we scout for players with low ownership but the potential of returns in the coming fixtures. We picked 1 per position this week............................
Maupay EVE £6.1 Ownership: 0.7%
Our differential forward for this week is Neal Maupay. The Everton summer signing from Brighton has endured some mix form in recent matches, and only has 1 goal in his 6 games. With Calvert-Lewin still coming back from a while out we think Maupay will start this weekend. He has a reasonable goal scoring record with Brighton and returned 16 goals a few seasons ago. He is yet to really get going with Everton, but the weekend fixture, against an inconsistent Palace at Goodison, offers the potential for him to get on the scoresheet.
Sinisterra LEE £6.5 Ownership: 0.6%
2 goals in his first 2 starts for Leeds has propelled Luis Sinisterra into our differential midfielder of choice this week. He has just come back from a stupid ban, that he had earned himself, and looked lively against Arsenal, in a game Leeds were unlucky to walk away from empty handed. His stats from his previous club are impressive - 23 goals and 14 assists in 49 games across all competitions last season for Feyenoord. When he can produce excellent numbers such as those we are expecting returns in his fixture away at Leicester this week. Leeds are creating the chances and Sinisterra keeps knocking at the door.
Gomez LIV £4.5 Ownership: 1.8%
Back recently from a long term injury and forced into action due to Liverpool's mounting injuries Joe Gomez has been excellent. Most notably and recently in his last game against Manchester City where he did the seemingly impossible job of shackling Haarland for 90+ minutes and keeping an all important clean sheet against the champions. He is staking a claim for both a regular center back spot at Liverpool, and to make the England team for the upcoming World Cup. He is great value too with a strong run of fixtures coming up. He faces bottom of the table Nottingham Forest this weekend.
Fabianski WHU £5.0 Ownership: 1.5%
It's always tough to pick a differential goalkeeper but we are going to go with Fabianski at the back this week. Kepa would have been are first choice but, although he has started consistently in recent weeks, the return to fitness of Mendy does raise a slight doubt as to who will start this week, though Kepa has been excellent. Fabianski should start and so he makes our team. Although West Ham have only kept 2 clean sheets in the league this season they are up against a low scoring Bournemouth side this weekend. We expect West Ham to dig deep and keep it tight at the back in front of their home fans. Hopefully Fabianski can make a few saves to add some points if he doesn't manage to keep a clean sheet against the Cherries. At just 1.5% ownership, let's hope he saves a penalty or 2 as well.
