FPL Gameweek 16 Differentials

We are in the final week of FPL before the World Cup break. There will be no cap on transfers after this Gameweek. Therefore, it is very sensible to utilize all of the free transfers. 

It is the ideal opportunity to go for one-week punts because we can modify our squad after this week. This article will give you our top five FPL Gameweek 16 Differential Picks.

Dejan Kulusevski (£8.0m, Spurs) vs. Leeds (H)

Kulusevski had an early impact after returning from injury last week, contributing to Harry Kane’s goal with an assist. He has a total of 1 goal and four assists this season. 

He was only on the field for 30 minutes in the Carabao Cup match, so he ought to be pretty rested for this weekend’s game.

Richarlison returned from injury for Spurs in the Carabao Cup, allowing them to field a proper front three for the first time in five games. As a result, the likelihood of their attackers getting back at them increases.

Leeds currently has the fourth-worst NPxGA in the league. Despite playing fewer games than many teams, they have also let up the fourth-most big chances. They are also one of just two teams this season that have failed to maintain a clean sheet on the road.

Martin Odegaard (£6.4m, Arsenal) vs. Wolves (A)

For table-topping Arsenal, Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, and William Saliba have proven to be popular FPL options. Still, Martin Odegaard has recently contributed significantly more.

The attacking midfielder scored goals in three of his previous five games, giving his owners 25 points.

No player averages more crucial passes in this Arsenal team’s Premier League games. Two regular players only beat his 2.3 shots per game average.


Anthony Martial (£6.7m, Man United) vs. Fulham (A)

Injury has kept Anthony Martial out for the duration of this season. He has, however, made an impression when he has played. He has contributed two goals and two assists in his 128 minutes. 

The Frenchman is more likely to start than Ronaldo for the trip to Fulham after making his injury comeback last week against Aston Villa.

Fulham has given up 46 big chances this season, nine more than any other team. Additionally, they have the league’s lowest xGC, xCS, and NPxGA. 

The team led by Marco Silva is fourth lowest in goals allowed. Only Southampton has given up more goals at home, making things worse.

Martial started against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup match and scored, showing he is in good form. 

Kaoru Mitoma (£4.9m, Brighton) vs. Aston Villa (H)

Unai Emery’s long-term effects on this Aston Villa team are yet to be seen, but we know that Brighton has been strong under Roberto De Zerbi.

In winning their last two league games, they scored seven goals. Kaoru Mitoma is one of the players who has entered the lineup.

Mitoma has scored one goal and contributed one assist for a total of 13 points in games against Chelsea and Wolves. He did well to line up in the wide attacking position.

Under De Zerbi, the Seagulls have averaged 1.81 xG in league games, with 2.0 xG in the three home contests.


Darwin Nunez (£8.9m, Liverpool) vs. Southampton (H)

Last week against the Spurs, Darwin Nunez scored 7 points, including an assist and two bonus points. Since GW1, those were his first bonus points. The haul, however, could have been significantly more. 

The forward had three shots inside the box, one of which was a big opportunity, and he also hit the crossbar. In his last four starts, he has two goals and one assist.

Darwin leads all Liverpool players in terms of shots, shots in the box, shots on target, significant chances, xG, BCC, xA, and xPts per 90. Only Haaland can claim more impressive stats than the Liverpool forward overall in the league.

Southampton, Liverpool’s opponents, have only managed one clean sheet thus far this season, the fewest in the league. Only three teams have conceded more goals than the Saints, which they have done 24 times. This week, they will also have a new coach, giving Darwin an ideal chance to record the long-awaited massive haul.
