Fantasy Premier League: Top 5 differential picks for Gameweek 30
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.
