FPL Gameweek 22 – Best Differentials

With FPL GW22 being a double gameweek it’s a great opportunity to capitalise on extra matches with a differential.

There are 6 teams playing twice in GW22 barring any last minute postponements, so wait as long as you can before making transfers.

Best Differentials for FPL GW22

The best differentials to bring in this week are Lucas Moura, Raphael Varane and Davinson Sanchez.

Also, our best FPL Differentials table provides a full list of Fantasy Premier League GW22 differentials.

Lucas Moura

  • Price: £6.5m
  • Picked by: 8%
  • Fixtures: Arsenal (H), Leicester (a), Chelsea (a)

With two goals and three assists Lucas Moura is a good asset this week, having the highest non-penalty xG in the Spurs team behind Son and Kane (3).

He’s a very dangerous player, dribbling past 33 players this term (8th most in the league) and making 21 key passes (second most in the team).

As well as that he’s made 43 shot-creating actions and 6 goal-creating actions, making him a great differential for his double gameweek against Arsenal and Leicester.

However, it looks like there’s a fair chance Arsenal vs Tottenham will be postponed. If this were to happen, then Moura naturally becomes far less appealing.

Raphael Varane

  • Price: £5.5m
  • Picked by: 3%
  • Fixtures: Aston Villa (a), Brentford (a), West Ham (H)

Varane is a United defender that faces Villa and Brentford this week.

Their two opponents rank in the bottom three for shots per game at home, which is a good sign for United’s defence.

They’ve conceded 13 set piece goals combined, which Varane could take advantage of in the opposing box.

He possesses world class pedigree and with Maguire nursing an injury and Bailly at AFCON he’s Man Utd’s most likely defender to start.

Davinson Sanchez

  • Price: £4.6m
  • Picked by: 4%
  • Fixtures: Arsenal (H), Leicester (a), Chelsea (a)

Since Conte arrived in North London Sanchez has kept 5 clean sheets and scored twice, amassing 42 points in that time.

When presented with a chance he’s been clinical, scoring 67% of his shots on target (5th most in the league).

Costing just £4.6m the Colombian offers goal threat and is guaranteed to be one of the three starting defenders, plus Dier isn’t fully fit which should cement his place.
