The world cup break is only three gameweeks away. Therefore, FPL managers are trying to climb the ranks to finish as high as possible before the break.
This article will give you our top five FPL GW14 Differential Picks.
Rodrigo (£6.3m, Leeds United) vs. Liverpool (A)
Rodrigo has been crucial for Leeds and consistently identifies the ideal areas to set up offensive threats.
Five goals and an assist from his movement and trickery inside the box are sufficient justification for his inclusion on this list.
Darwin Nunez (£8.8m, Liverpool) vs. Leeds United (H)
Nunez was injured and was unable to play against Nottingham Forest. Liverpool suffered a 1-0 loss to the worst team, and he was much missed.
The Uruguayan scored again against Ajax after returning from injury midweek. With the goal, he has four goals in his previous four starts across all leagues, scoring once each time.
Nunez had six shots within the penalty area in his final league start against West Ham, second only to Mitrovic that week. In addition, he leads all Liverpool players in box shots, significant chances, xG, and goals per 90.
This weekend, Liverpool will play Leeds United. This year, Jesse Marsch’s team has had trouble in away games. They have lost each of their last four games on the road.
Callum Wilson (£7.3m, Newcastle) vs. Aston Villa (H)
Callum Wilson scored four goals in his eight starts and provided an assist.
Among his fellow compatriots, the Englishman leads in box shots and shots per 90. He is second only to Isak in xG and has big chances per 90 this season.
Against a struggling Aston Villa, he will try to maintain his strong performance. The FDR rating for the Magpies’ upcoming two games is 2. Wilson would be attempting one last push to try and join the England World Cup squad.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m, Everton) vs. Fulham (A)
Over the past year or so, injury has substantially slowed Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s development. Still, the Everton striker is beginning to reclaim some of his finest forms.
Calvert-Lewin scored his first Premier League goal of the season in Gameweek 13 following two straight starts for the Toffees.
Calvert-Lewin may regain his mojo after scoring 8 FPL points in that game. He’ll be scrambling to establish some attacking consistency with a spot in England’s World Cup squad potentially on the line.

Diego Costa (£5.5m, Wolves) vs. Brentford (A)
To express it numerically, the Black Country side’s xG ranking from GW1 to GW10 was 19th. However, they have outperformed teams like Man City, Chelsea, and Arsenal in the last three Gameweeks, ranking 10th for xG in the league.
Diego Costa’s inclusion in the starting eleven is mainly responsible for the improvement. The Spaniard had eight shots inside the box against Leicester alone last week, at least three more than any other player. Only Mitrovic and Kane had more box shots than the striker in the previous three GWs.
The highest percentage in the league, 62% of center-field opportunities have been given up by Brentford. That percentage increased to 68% in the most recent three GWs.
