We are now closer to the end of the season with just 5 more gameweeks left. Chelsea and Manchester United have a double in GW34, while a lot of teams have a good single gameweek fixture. The best possible way to climb ranks at the end of the season is to back some differential players and thus, in this article, we bring you 3 differential players that can help you boost your ranks.

Emerson Royal (Spurs – Defender – £4.5m) vs BRE (A)

With Doherty now out possibly for the rest of the season, Emerson Royal becomes a fantastic option till the end of the season. Spurs have good single GW fixtures till GW38 and a double in GW36. Emerson has scored a goal and kept 1 clean sheet in the last 3 GWs.

So far in 25 appearances (20 starts) this season, he has created 25 chances and 1 big chance for his team and managed 7 shots from inside the box. While those are not very attractive numbers, the prospect of him playing in an advanced role along with clean sheet potential makes him a very good prospect. With ownership of just 1.3%, Emerson is a good differential at the back.

Raheem Sterling (Manchester City – Midfielder – £10.5m) vs WAT (H)

While it’s difficult to nail a sure starter from Pep’s line-up, Sterling has a relatively higher chance of featuring against Watford as he was rested in their previous match vs Brighton. Man City can’t afford any slipups in the league and with Pep emphasizing the goal difference, City might be more attacking against Watford. 

This season, Raheem Sterling has scored 6 goals and 2 assists in 7 matches against the current bottom 5 teams. He also has a knack for scoring goals against Watford – 11 goals and 2 assists in the last 9 matches. Sterling has the highest upside among all players in GW34 and could be a nice differential for Free Hits and Wildcards. Current ownership is 2.4%.

Timo Werner (Chelsea – Forward – £8.6m) vs WHU (H) & MUN (A)

Timo Werner hasn’t had the best of starts in the Premier League this season. However, he seems to have turned things around in the last few matches. He has scored 3 goals and 1 assist in the last 2 matches and also ranks 1st for shots in the box/90 and 2nd for xG per 90 among all Chelsea players.

Chelsea have a good attacking double with both their opponents quite leaky at the back. Man United have conceded 14 goals in the last 6 matches, while West Ham have conceded 7 goals in their last 4 matches. We expect Werner to do well against both the teams and he could also be a cheeky differential captain. His ownership is 2.6%

*Ownership percentage is as of April 22, 2022, at the time of writing the article.
