FPL 2023-24 – Differential XI For Gameweek 6


Looking for a point of difference in Gameweek 6? Here are some crafty differentials to get you started:

All selected players have an ownership below 15% at the time of publication:


GOALKEEPER: Nick Pope – £5.5m – Newcastle
Fixture: vs Sheffield Utd (a)

Two straight clean sheets in all competitions and faces one of the promoted clubs in Gameweek 6.

DEFENDER: Manuel Akanji – £5.0m – Man City
Fixture: vs Nottingham Forest (H)

Did not start in the midweek UEFA Champions League tie, so should be in the starting XI for the Gameweek 6 visit of Nottingham Forest.

DEFENDER: Andy Robertson – £6.5m – Liverpool
Fixture: vs West Ham (H)

Scored last weekend and is a constant assist threat down the left-flank. Particularly relied upon in the absence of fellow full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is rated as 50/50 for the weekend.

DEFENDER: Fabian Schar – £5.0m – Newcastle
Fixture: vs Sheffield Utd (a)

Significantly lower-owned than centre-back partner Sven Botman, but achieved more attacking returns and more FPL points than his teammate last season.

MIDFIELDER: Phil Foden – £7.6m – Man CIty
Fixture: vs Nottingham Forest (H)

Likely to start given Man City’s injury issues in midfield. Feels like a haul is just around the corner for the Englishman.

MIDFIELDER: Leandro Trossard – £6.6m – Arsenal
Fixture: vs Tottenham (H)

Is grasping his opportunity with both hands having scored twice since coming into the team for the injured Gabriel Martinelli.

MIDFIELDER: Jeremy Doku – £6.5m – Man City
Fixture: vs Nottingham Forest (H)

Benched in the midweek Champions League game which indicates a start on the weekend. Scored in Gameweek 5 and looks comfortable at his new club.

MIDFIELDER: Eberechi Eze – £6.3m – Crystal Palace
Fixture: vs Fulham (H)

Scored against Wolves in Crystal Palace’s last home league game, and has been unlucky not to have recorded more returns so far this season.

MIDFIELDER: Casemiro – £5.4m – Man Utd
Fixture: vs Burnley (a)

Has already scored in the Premier League this season, and managed a brace against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

FORWARD: Darwin Nunez – £7.4m – Liverpool
Fixture: vs West Ham (H)

His benching in Gameweek 5 was likely due to fatigue from international duty, so is likely to return to the starting line-up in Gameweek 6.

FORWARD: Evan Ferguson – £6.0m – Brighton
Fixture: vs Bournemouth (H)

Should be fully fit now after a brief cameo in Gameweek 5. Scored a hat-trick against Newcastle in Brighton’s last home league game.
