Fantasy Premier League: Top 5 differential picks for Gameweek 30
The differential players tipped to score big in the FPL this week
Nine more weeks to go in this year's Premier League season and nine more chances for fantasy managers to climb up the rankings. The mouth-watering clash between Manchester United and Liverpool stands out this week and an equally important battle in the bottom-half takes place as Newcastle host Southampton.
Before we look at this week's differentials, let's look at how last week's picks fared:
- Riyad Mahrez- 10 points
- Romelu Lukaku- 8 points
- Sadio Mane- 8 points
- Andrew Robertson- 6 points
- Xherdan Shaqiri- 2 points
So without further ado, here are the 5 players who can score big this week:
#5 Cesar Azpilicueta vs Crystal Palace (H)
Although he is owned by 20.5% managers, Azpilicueta's name is worth mentioning because he is ever-present in Chelsea's defence. They are at home to Crystal Palace this week, a side to whom they lost earlier this campaign, and will be looking for revenge.
Furthermore, they need to win to get back on track in the race for a top-four finish following consecutive losses to the Manchester clubs.
He has missed only one match this season and has a goal and six assists to his name. A clean sheet is on the cards and more points are likely as he often puts in some very good crosses. He also tends to collect bonus points whenever Chelsea keep a clean sheet.
