FPL GW11 Differentials 2021/22: 5 Fantasy Players that can help boost your rank

It's easy to pick the big players, but who are some of the lesser know potential stars of the competition?

We’re now fully into the double digits of the Premier League season, and all 20 clubs have well and truly established what kind of football they’re here to play. Whilst the expected emblems of Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool dominate the top of the table, the hard-done fans of Norwich, Newcastle, and Burnley will be hoping to see their favorite clubs push out of the relegation zone before the end of the season. There’s no comfort in any position, however, with all times in the danger of suffering an upset at any moment. For FPL managers, the excitement will likely be no less. So many quality assets to choose from, so many ups and downs. There is already quite a clear image now of who the season-keepers are looking like right now. Those are the ones that get you points, definitely, however, it is the point difference that carries you up the ranks in the leader-boards, and that is the ultimate key to success in FPL. Here is a list of FPL GW11 Differentials 2021/22 that can bolster your squads ahead of gameweek 11.

FPL GW11 Differentials 2021/22

1. Neal Maupay (Forward) – 6.5 million

Maupay is the current top goal-scorer for Brighton, with 4 goals in 9 games. There is not much flash in the stats he produces each week, but the setup right now is a brilliant opportunity for the Frenchman to further grow his tally. He has a projected goal chance of 46% for the next week’s fixture against Newcastle, the 5th highest of all other FPL assets. That is of course for a very good reason, as Newcastle has especially been underperforming in the defensive department. With the 2nd worst defense in the league, the Magpies have conceded 23 goals (19th), 2.3 goals a game (19th), and 49 shots on target (18th). They’re one of the only 2 teams still yet to keep a clean sheet this season, even though 11 game-weeks have already passed.

Coincidentally, Brighton isn’t really a team that scores big but seems to like to put a few past Newcastle whenever the opportunity pops up. In the last 2 games between the 2 clubs, Brighton took away all 3 points and the scoreline was a back-to-back 3-0 to the Seagulls. Even better, both games saw Maupay perform well, with 2 goals and 1 assist haul in the first fixture and another goal in the second, resulting in a total of 3 goals and 1 assist across the 2 matchups. There’s nothing to say this doesn’t continue, with Brighton on good form coming off a hard-fought draw against the dangerous Liverpool. Plus, Maupay is on penalties as well, which is always good to know.


2. Kelechi Iheanacho (Forward) – 7.0 million

Leicester‘s strike partnership has been regularly impactful for the club but often the other half takes the spotlight. Jamie Vardy is the name most come to think of about a Leicester striker, but his partner-in-crime, Iheanacho seems to be going unnoticed this season. Having just 3.1% ownership, Iheanacho has some great underlying numbers. He has 1 goal and 2 assist so far this season. He has had some sparks, including the performance alongside Vardy against Manchester United.

So far, Iheanacho has been pretty quiet this season, but it’s his explosiveness that makes him such a great differential option. Iheanacho was on a run of 7.1 points per game at one point last year, recording 11 goals and 2 assists in just 12 games. Luckily, Leicester should be able to attack quite comfortably in this next fixture, as they face Leeds United. They sit 3 points above the relegation zone in 17th place and are known to have one of the worst defenses in the league for this season. An average of 1.7 goals conceded per game and 51 shots conceded on target are both bottom 5 in the league.


3. Callum Hudson-Odoi (Midfielder) – 5.3 million

The injuries to Lukaku and Werner forced Tuchel to shift some things up in his starting lineup, and one of the star performers during that time is the Chelsea youngster, Hudson-Odoi. The 11-pointer against Norwich shed some of the spotlights on Hudson-Odoi, but obviously, Mount ran the show which meant that CHO went unnoticed. He’s 0.6% owned and an insanely cheap price of 5.3 million seems too good to be true, with him expected to be starting in the next game-week.

His Premier League form continued with a midweek assist against Malmo in the Champions League as well. The opposition is Burnley, who sits 18th in the relegation zone. It’s clear who the favorites are, with Chelsea carrying a 79% chance of winning, and a further 48% chance at scoring 3+ goals too. With CHO operating in the advanced midfield role that’s expected, there is a serious chance of points up for grabs.


4. Bryan Mbeumo (Midfielder) – 5.6 million

It’s quite a surprise how Mbeumo has been overlooked this season. Granted, his stats aren’t convincing enough on their own, but many other factors can be considered as well. First of all, Mbeumo is commonly deployed in a strike partnership alongside Ivan Toney. A 5.6 million midfielder playing in front of a goal is an interesting thought in itself. In addition, Mbeumo’s xG of 4 in comparison to his actual 2 shows that he should actually be playing twice as well as he currently is, and his famous 6 shots on the woodwork go to show how close he’s been. Statistics project he has a 36% chance at a goal, which is great value for just 5.6 million.

Brentford invites Norwich to their home stadium in Gameweek 11. Considering Norwich’s form across the season, with their defense being one of the worst in the league, this should be a comfortable win for the Bees. The good fixture run continues as Brentford goes on to face just one of the top six teams in the next six weeks, with ties against Norwich, Newcastle, Everton, Spurs, Leeds, and Watford.


5. Marc Cucurella (Defender) – 5.0 million

This is another one of those FPL assets who isn’t flashy with the stats but is a great pick in the current scenario. Although yet to record a goal or assist, Cucurella plays in an advanced position for Brighton and has caused problems for the opposition whenever he’s played. However, the main source of points for the young Spaniard though is the clean sheets. Brighton has a clean sheet chance of 45% and has conceded just 11 goals as well as 34 shots on target, both being in the best 5 amongst all other PL teams.

Brighton will be hosting Newcastle at the Annex stadium, which is obviously undergoing some major changes at the club, for the better. However right now, they aren’t looking too great, sitting 19th in the table with an xG ranking 2nd lowest in the league. Fixtures after GW11 also seem quite convincing for Brighton, as they play Villa, Leeds, West Ham, and Southampton in 4 games after as well.
