Three FPL differentials to consider

Sergio Aguero, Mohammed Salah and Marcos Alonso have one thing in common. Everyone has them in their FPL sides.

Over 52% of FPL managers have Aguero in their team and when he scores, the majority of owners are happy.

The difference between a decent week and an excellent one usually comes down to the players the majority do not have in.

Here are three with less than 5% ownership and those who you should be considering over the next few weeks.

Defender: Lucas Digne (£4.8m) 1.7% ownership
From the first six Premier League games, it is quite clear Everton won’t keep many clean sheets this season.

So why an Everton defender I hear you ask? Well Lucas Digne would be a decent pick mainly for his attacking qualities.

Granted not the biggest of sample sizes, but in his three Premier League starts (plus one substitute appearance) he already has an assist and averages 1.3 shots per game.

Everton’s next two games are against opponents who won’t sit back, meaning Digne will have room to attack from a full-back position.

The Frenchman has clearly ousted Leighton Baines as first choice left-back at Goodison Park and following a price drop, he could be a decent addition.

Another Everton defender to consider going forward is Yerry Mina (£5.4m). He can only improve an average back-line and with three goals in three games at the 2018 World Cup, he could easily pop up with attacking returns.

Next three PL fixtures: Fulham (H), Leicester City (A), Crystal Palace (H)

Midfielder: Dele Alli (£9.0m) 3.9% ownership
Dele Alli returned from injury to captain Tottenham in their mid-week cup tie vs. Watford.

A possible stumbling block is his £9.0m price tag. To force him into your side, you may need to sell a Sadio Mane or Eden Hazard, however now could be the time for a risk.

He is owned by just 3.9% of FPL managers, however with Huddersfield and Cardiff up next he should be a consideration, especially with Chelsea and Liverpool facing each other, as well as Manchester United and Manchester City in their next three.

Dele has an incredible record in the Premier League considering his age, scoring 38 and assisting 29 in just 111 games.

Next three PL fixtures: Huddersfield (A), Cardiff City (H), West Ham (A)

Forward: Jamie Vardy (£8.9m) 4.1% ownership
A red card in GW2 angered Jamie Vardy owners, however now you should be considering a return for the former Fleetwood man.

An 11 point return against Huddersfield last weekend suggests his season is now officially up and running.

His 2017-18 season went massively under the radar, with Vardy scoring 20 Premier League goals, just four short of his total in Leicester’s incredible title success.

Jamie Vardy to score vs. Newcastle United: 7/4 with Sky Bet

His fixtures may not be amazing, however Vardy scored three times in the respective matches last season, including twice at the Emirates.

Given Leicester City’s counter attacking style, Vardy thrives against the bigger sides and found the net against all of the top six in the 17-18 campaign.

Next three PL fixtures: Newcastle (A), Everton (H), Arsenal (A)
