FPL managers have been given a lot to consider following a season-defining Gameweek in which Man City asserted dominance.
We have given you our top 5 FPL GW24 differential picks with less than 10% ownership.
Rico Henry (£4.5m, Brentford) vs Crystal Palace (H)
This season, one of the best teams has been Brentford. In their last 10 games, the Bees are unbeaten. The team led by Thomas Frank has picked points against teams like Spurs, Liverpool, Man City, and Arsenal.
There is a lot of green in the next games, including a double in Gameweek 27. The West London side has also kept clean sheets in 4 of the last 6 matches. Hence, it would be sensible to plan to include their players in our teams.
Among Brentford players, Rico Henry has produced the third-highest number of significant chances thus far this year. He has also created two significant opportunities, the most among defenders. Last season, the Englishman did score three goals. We can conclude that he has a purpose in mind.
Kelechi Iheanacho (£6.1m, Leicester City) vs Man United (A)
Iheanacho is driving Brendan Rodgers’ team to victory after a sluggish start to the Premier League season.
Iheanacho, who had double-digit returns in back-to-back gameweeks, has replaced Vardy and Daka as the Foxes’ preferred striker.
The Nigerian attacker is essential to Leicester’s attack because of his capacity to both create and finish chances. He has two goals and three assists in the last two games for the Foxes.
Finding form for the Foxes ?
At 0.9% ownership, are you tempted to bring in Iheanacho? ?#FPL pic.twitter.com/Ylzi3ligQV

Craig Dawson (£4.8m, Wolves) vs Bournemouth (H)
Another team that will have a double Gamweek in GW25 is the Wolves. The team of Lopetegui has won three of their previous four games while recording a clean sheet in two of them.
Craig Dawson scored 12 points against Liverpool in his final home game. Wolves and Liverpool will coincidentally play each other again the next game week.
Wolves have had an equal fifth-best defensive record since GW17 regarding goals allowed (7). Having a Wolves defender is smart, considering that 4 of their next 7 games have an FDR rating of 2.
No team has produced fewer big opportunities on the road this season than the Cherries. Bournemouth hasn’t scored in any of their four away contests since the World Cup season resumed. Wolves’ prospects of shutting out their opponents are, therefore, excellent.
Leandro Trossard (£6.7m, Arsenal) vs Aston Villa (A)
In recent games, Trossard has been called up from the bench early due to Martinelli’s difficulties. Trossard scored the game’s first goal against Brentford last week.
Therefore, the match against Aston Villa is the ideal opportunity to give him his first Premier League start while wearing an Arsenal jersey.
He should have opportunities against the Villans because of his talent for being in the right place at the right time in and around the box.
James Tarkowski (£4.2m, Everton) vs Leeds (H)
Like Chelsea and Liverpool, FPL managers should also keep an eye on Everton. The Toffees have appeared to be more stable at the back since Sean Dyche took over.
Even though they lost the derby, Dyche’s team displayed traits that might make his defenders valuable FPL assets before Liverpool took the lead.
Tarkowski came close to scoring at Anfield as well after scoring the game-winning goal against Arsenal. The former Burnley player’s first goal came just seconds after he struck the post.
Since Dyche’s teams frequently utilise set plays, Tarkowski might be a valuable asset to our teams. Everton also has a double-game week and a guaranteed match in GW28.
Surprisingly, only Gray has taken more shots inside the box than Tarkowski throughout the season. The defender ranks third among his colleagues in terms of huge opportunities. FPL managers may profit from huge hauls from the Everton centre-back if they combine these factors with a newly discovered confidence and solidity at the back.
