Best Differential Picks For FPL GW25

With the League Cup final taking place this weekend, four teams are out of action during FPL DGW25.

They are Brentford, Brighton, Man Utd, and Newcastle.

However, four sides do have a double gameweek: Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool, and Wolves.

These are the teams to focus on when it comes to the best differential picks for GW25.

Cody Gakpo

  • Price: £7.8m
  • Picked By: 5%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (a) and Wolves (H), Man United (H), Bournemouth (a)

With Liverpool having two favourable fixtures coming up in the same week, it makes complete sense to focus on their players.

Cody Gakpo is listed as a midfielder on FPL but has been leading the line for Jurgen Klopp’s side in recent weeks.

The Dutch international has started all 5 league games since his arrival from PSV in January.

While he did not hit the ground running immediately, the last two games have shown his quality and why he was brought in.

Two goals from as many games has visibly increased his confidence.

He has been an important part of a dangerous looking front 3 in the last two fixtures and should continue to start games with some attacking players still finding their way back after injury.

Our team news predictor gives Gakpo a 90% chance of starting against Crystal Palace.

So, if you’re looking for a Liverpool differential, look no further than Gakpo.

James Tarkowski

  • Price: £4.3m
  • Picked By: 6%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (H) and Arsenal (a), Nottingham Forest (a), Brentford (H)

Sean Dyche has instantly improved Everton in regards to their home form.

1-0 wins over Arsenal and Leeds have presented 6 points from the last 2 fixtures at Goodison Park.

James Tarkowski was the man to score the winner over the league leaders in Dyche’s first game.

The English defender has an xGI of 0.16 per 90 minutes which has increased since Dyche took over.

He was also instrumental in keeping a clean sheet at the other end along with centre-back partner, Conor Coady.

Tarkowski has started 23 out of a possible 24 Premier League games and will continue to be a mainstay, especially after such good performances.

Our clean sheet percentages gives Everton a 35% chance of keeping Aston Villa at bay.

The following game against Arsenal provides a very tough test for Everton and they will be looking to make the most of any set pieces with Tarkowski being the biggest threat.

Andrew Robertson

  • Price: £6.8m
  • Picked By: 7%
  • Fixtures: Crystal Palace (a) and Wolves (H), Man United (H) and Bournemouth (a)

Liverpool have kept cleansheets in the last two league games and Robertson is very rarely taken out of the lineup.

A double gameweek brings opportunities for more defensive points due to the opposition not being the hardest on paper.

The attacking full-back also has 5 assists from 20 Premier League which is an average of 1 every 4 games.

He is even over-performing his xA of 3.77 for the season so far.

He is the joint highest scoring Liverpool defender in FPL in the 2022/23 season, level with Trent Alexander-Arnold.

A reason for picking the Scot over his teammate is down to the price as Robertson is £0.5m cheaper and leaves room for more money being spent elsewhere.

A further 2 clean sheets in the upcoming double gameweek for Robertson could prove his worth.
