It is very difficult to gain an edge in the world of FPL. There is so much information available and most of the good players are highly owned by managers. Nothing gives me more pleasure than discovering a hidden unpopular gem though. Having an FPL player who has an ownership of under 10% is one of the greatest rushes in Fantasy Premier League.

Here, I have prepared a list of 3 such differentials which will serve as good picks for the next 4-6 fixtures. Differentials in this article will be defined as players who have ownership of under 10%.

I was lucky enough to have brought this South Korean into my team three Gameweeks ago and he finally came through for me. The happiest South Korean in the world is one of the best FPL assets in the game and I highly recommend getting him while he remains such a huge differential in the game.

Son was Spurs’ best player against Arsenal in my opinion and looked extremely threatening while running beyond Kane on multiple occasions. He is the effective forward in this team. This imminent threat came through when he scored a couple of scintillating goals against Palace at home. He had 5 shots against Palace 4 of which were inside the box and with his lethal finishing ability, this trend should continue. There are a few factors that make Son a very attractive pick at the moment.

A) Form

Son is one of the streakiest players in the league. He’ll go on long runs of scoring and barren runs so, with him, timing is everything. Last year, there was a run where he got 5 double-digit hauls in an 11 Gameweek spell. Likewise, there was also a run where he blanked 11 times out of 12 towards the end of the season. Right now he looks great (he’s Spurs’ best player in my opinion) and I highly recommend jumping on him while he’s hot and rare.

B) Fixtures

Spurs are embarking upon a great run of attacking fixtures that look primed for Son returns. In the next 9 Gameweeks, Spurs only player Liverpool away from last year’s top 6 and that run of fixtures includes the likes of Southampton, Watford, Sheffield and Bournemouth at home.

C) Statistics

In the last 2 gameweeks, only Mane and Kouyate (don’t go picking Kouyate) have had more shots in the box than Son. This means he’s going to get a lot of big chances to score since he plays so close to the goal and is effectively Spurs’ forward. He mentioned this himself where he said that he was playing as striker in the game against Palace in the post-match interview. He also mentioned that he’s looking to get his first hat-trick in the league ever, soon. And he’s incredibly selfish. All the makings of a cracking FPL pick.

With Eriksen, Alli and Ndombele all returning to fitness, Spurs look good for goals. A small addition I would like to make was that Son was nicely rested in their midweek Champions League game which makes him almost nailed to start in the weekend game against Leicester.
