The long-awaited Double Gameweek 26 is finally here. 8 teams have double fixtures with Liverpool and Arsenal having the stand-out ones. Salah is entrusted with the triple captain chip from a lot of managers, while bench boost is also in consideration for some. In this article, we bring you 3 differential players that can help you boost your ranks.

Romain Saiss (Wolves – Defender – £5.0m) vs LEI (H) & ARS (A)

Wolves are sitting 7th in the Premier League table having kept 9 clean sheets in 23 matches this season. They have conceded just 3 goals in their last 7 matches and have been one of the best defenses this season. Wolves are ranked 2nd for goals conceded this season after Manchester City. 

Saiss has only missed 2 games for Wolves so far this season. He has 2 goals, 6 bonus, and kept 9 clean sheets. He has been consistently returning points and has the most xG among all Wolves defenders. He is also averaging 4.39 points per match with ownership of just 2%, the prospect of attacking returns along with a clean sheet is good.

Gabriel Magalhães (Arsenal – Defender – £5.3m) vs BRE (H) & WOL (H)

Arsenal’s performances have improved a lot in the past few gameweeks. They have two favorable home fixtures against Brentford and Wolves this week. Gabriel scored in the last gameweek away at Wolves and he also delivered a clean sheet. He delivered a haul of 14 points. 

In 19 games where he started so far, he has scored 3 goals. He has attempted 18 shots, 16 from inside the box, and has also created 5 chances for his team. In these games, he has delivered 11 clean sheets and accumulated 11 bonus points. He is a solid player to watch out for. With 7% ownership, he is a very good differential. 

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace – Midfielder – £6.8m) vs CHE (H) & WAT (A)

The Crystal Palace attacker is playing more freely this season with other players in the team like Gallagher, Edouard, etc stepping up their game. So far in 19 appearances (18 starts), Zaha has scored 6 goals and provided 1 assist. He has also been entrusted with the spot-kick duty to further enhance his value as an FPL asset. 

So far this season, he has made 34 attempts on goal, 24 from inside the box, and 12 on target. He has also managed to create 23 chances and 4 big chances for his team. Zaha faces Chelsea and Watford side who have been struggling at the back in recent weeks this season. We back Zaha to do well against both teams. Current ownership is 4.9%.

*Ownership percentage is as of February 18, 2022, at the time of writing the article.
