In this article, I've prepared another list of differentials for FanTeam’s upcoming GW 9 €50K Weekly Monster. These players are likely to see low ownership, but it's these guys that can explode and take you to the top.
Abraham is set to feature from the start again for Chelsea and will have much less ownership than Werner. However, Abraham’s upside is almost equal to Werner’s. The Englishman started in 4 EPL games for the Blues this season, netting 2 goals and providing 2 assists. In these games, he has averaged 3.25 shots and 0.53 xG/90. In the last game against Sheffield, he outscored Werner in penalty area touches (12 vs. 6), shots (4 vs. 3) and shots inside the box (4 vs. 2). Given his price, Abraham should be considered not only as differential, but as a differential captain option as well.
Abraham is given a 43% chance to score
Mitrovic is the leading EPL forward in penalty area touches over the last 6 matches (41) and sits third in shots (22) and shots inside the box (20) in that span. His 3.56 xGI is ranked 6th among the forwards during this period.
He is facing Everton this week, the worst team in the league in xG conceded (9.60) over the last 6 Gameweeks. Everything looks good for Mitrovic on paper, but the main concern is his poor ability to convert the chances into actual goals.
Mitrovic is given a 28% chance to score
Last Gameweek Soucek finally scored his first goal of the season and will be eager to build on that against the terrible Sheffield United. Soucek is averaging 2.25 shots and 0.22 xGI per game this season. The matchup against Sheffield is a brilliant one, given the Blades are the dead last team in the EPL in headed goal attempts conceded (27) this season. Meanwhile, 10 of 18 Soucek’s shots are the headed attempts. Additionally, unlike his teammates Bowen and Fornals, Soucek always plays 90 minutes, which gives you +1 extra point on FanTeam.
Soucek is given a 22% chance to score
One of the best EPL strikers Aubameyang is going to fly under the radar again this week. This time he is coming up against a weak defensive team, which is Leeds United, and this could be thr week when the Gabonese hauls.
Only West Brom conceded more xG this season than Leeds (12.73), while Leeds’ 20 big chances conceded are the joint-worst. Aubameyang is on penalties and has a great probability to score. I would consider giving him an armband as well.
Auba is given a 47% chance to score
The return of Ben Mee has strengthened the Burnley’ backline, and the chances of them keeping a clean sheet against Crystal Palace are fairly good. Their leader Tarkowski constantly provides aerial threat on set pieces, averaging 1 shot per game this season. He will definitely have such opportunities against Palace, who are ranked 20th in the league in attempts from set plays conceded (37) this season.
Burnley is given a 32% chance to keep a clean sheet
