FPL 2023-24 – Differential XI For Gameweek 9


On the lookout for some differential assets for Gameweek 9? Look no further:

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


GOALKEEPER: Nick Pope – £5.5m – Newcastle
Fixture: vs Crystal Palace (H)

Three clean sheets in his last four Premier League fixtures and takes on a Crystal Palace side who have scored just once in their last four games in all competitions.

DEFENDER: Trent Alexander-Arnold – £7.9m – Liverpool
Fixture: vs Everton (H)

Although he has rarely shown it yet this season, not many players have a higher ceiling for points than the Liverpool star.

DEFENDER: Lucas Digne – £4.7m – Aston Villa
Fixture: vs West Ham (H)

Three assists in the Premier League this season, and a differential alternative to the more popularly-owned Matty Cash.

DEFENDER: Pedro Porro – £5.1m – Tottenham
Fixture: vs Fulham (H)

Has a lower ownership than fellow Spurs full-back Destiny Udogie, but has recorded the same number of attacking returns as his teammate.

MIDFIELDER: Phil Foden – £7.6m – Man City
Fixture: vs Brighton (H)

Assuming he’s in the starting line-up, could be an explosive option as Man City take on leaky Brighton.

MIDFIELDER: Moussa Diaby – £6.7m – Aston Villa
Fixture: vs West Ham (H)

Two goals and four assists to date for Astion Villa’s summer signing, who represents excellent value of money.

MIDFIELDER: Pedro Neto – £5.7m – Wolves
Fixture: vs Bournemouth (a)

Very much in form having either scored or assisted in Wolves’ last six Premier League outings.

MIDFIELDER: Anthony Gordon – £5.6m – Newcastle
Fixture: vs Crystal Palace (H)

Generously-priced and has really found his feet now at Newcastle. Six attacking returns in his seven Premier League appearances this season.

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

Six goals for club and country this season, and was on target in both of Uruguay’s recent World Cup qualifiers.

FORWARD: Rasmus Hojlund – £7.2m – Man Utd
Fixture: vs Sheffield Utd (a)

This fixture represents an excellent opportunity for the Dane to register his first Premier League goal for the Red Devils.

FORWARD: Joane Wissa – £5.9m – Brentford
Fixture: vs Burnley (H)

Registered an assist against Man Utd in Gameweek 8, and next faces a Burnley side who are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League this season.
