Another OK week for the Differential XI with 48 hard-earned points. Haller (6.1% owned) and Silva (7.3% owned) returned handsomely again allied with a few assists chipping in. My defence has been blown apart by injuries and is struggling massively so I’ve whipped the wildcard out of the pocket to sort it out and refresh the team.



As Pope (11.9% owned) has exceeded the ownership threshold, I have taken him out along some other under-performers. I am excited by the new-look team which has points-potential everywhere. In goal I have brought in Kepa (5.2% owned) and doubled him up with Emerson (2.7% owned) who has been unlucky thus far with some great underlying stats.

Leicester’s Pereira (5.3% owned) and Soyuncu (3.7% owned) also come in the defence with Maitland-Niles (6.3% owned) with Arsenal’s fixtures looking great for the foreseeable. Tarkowski (1.6% owned) completes the defensive overhaul.

In midfield, Son (2.6% owned) retains his place alongside Lanzini (3.3% owned) and the master D.Silva who remarkably is still at only 7.3% owned despite his great start to the season. Pepe comes in at 3.6% owned alongside Richarlison (7.0% owned) who looked imperious last weekend and can hopefully kick on again.

Up front enabler Wickham (6.1% owned) comes in to partner Haller (6.1% owned) and new signing Vardy who at 8.7% owned may not be in the team for long due to his ownership if he keeps up his blistering form. The captain this week is Son, who, with his low ownership can make a big impact with a goal or two.



Good luck everyone for Gameweek 5 and may your differentials bring you green arrows!
