As GW 6 approaches, we look at some differentials that can soar you up the rankings. This week we have specifically tried to select players with less than 5% ownership. We believe these players have a very good potential to make an impact by looking at their underlying stats and the corresponding fixture. 

Andrew Robertson (Liverpool – Defender – £7m) vs BRE (A)

The Scottish left-back should be back to full fitness and raring to go after being rested in GW5. In 2 appearances so far, he has 9 FPL points to his name which includes 1 clean sheet. While he is yet to provide an attacking return, he has certainly looked like a threat down the left flank. 

In just 2 games, he has managed to create 8 chances for his teammates. Liverpool have kept 4 clean sheets so far in 5 games, conceding just 1 goal against Chelsea. Newly promoted Brentford have only scored 5 goals in 5 games and the Reds have a very good chance to keep another clean sheet this week. With an ownership of just 1.7%, Robertson is a solid differential who can be a long-term hold in your squad given his obvious quality. 

Leandro Trossard (Brighton – Midfielder – £6.4m) vs CRY (A)

Brighton have surprised everyone with their exceptional start to the league campaign having picked up 4 wins and 1 loss from 5 games. They just seem to find a way to churn out positive results and Leandro Trossard has been very instrumental towards achieving that. In 5 starts, he has 1 goal and 1 assist to his name. He has managed to create 7 chances for his team in these games. 

He has made 11 attempts on goal so far, 5 from inside the box with 4 shots on target. While Crystal Palace played pretty well against Liverpool last week, they still ended up conceding 3 goals without scoring. So far, the Seagulls have won just 1 game out of 5 conceding 8 goals in the process. We back Trossard to put on a strong performance on Monday night. Current ownership is 1.1%. 

Salomon Rondon (Everton – Forward – £6m) vs NOR (H)

Norwich City have been the team to target so far this season. The Canaries have lost all 5 games so far and have conceded 14 goals (most in the league) which has left them languishing at the bottom of the league table. Everton will be keen to bounce back after their disappointing loss in GW5 against Aston Villa.  

In the absence of Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, Rondon should lead the line for the Toffees. With just 0.2% ownership, the Venezuelan can be a fantastic punt for this gameweek.  

Adam Armstrong (Southampton – Forward £6m) vs WOL (H)

Armstrong has looked menacing so far this season. The Saint’s forward has scored 1 goal and provided 1 assist so far in 5 games. He also won his side a penalty last weekend against Man City, only to have it overturned by VAR. Armstrong has registered 16 attempts on goal (2nd highest in forwards), 11 from inside the box, and 5 on target. He has also managed to create 3 chances for his teammates. 

Wolves have struggled to convert their chances into goals this season and Southampton have the calibre to hurt them. Armstrong can do a lot of damage with his pace in behind an ageing Wolves backline. Current ownership is 3%.

*Ownership percentage is as on September 24, 2021 at the time of writing the article.
