GW-7 offers us our first double game-week, but unfortunately it involves just two teams, and they’re both weak. Consequently, GW-7’s list of differentials features no one from Luton or Burnley.
As always, we’ll be looking at players with a TSB of 10% or less.
David Raya (£4.8m, BOU v ARS)
With three starts in a row, including Arsenal’s opening fixture of the 2023-24 Champions League campaign as well as Sunday’s North London Derby, Raya appears to have supplanted Ramsdale as Arteta’s preferred #1. Arsenal sports a low xG-conceded this season, and Raya is well-known for his shot-stopping abilities plus tendency to win bonus points. And at £4.8m he’s even rather budget-friendly.
Schar (£5m, NEW v BUR)
Newcastle has collected two clean sheets in a row, and the Magpies could pick up a third this weekend against a woeful Burnley side that has scored just four goals and is still in search of a first win. That makes all of Newcastle’s defenders attractive. If Trippier’s price tag is a bridge too far, and if you want more attacking threat than Burn and Botman offer, then Schar is your man. Plus, he and his teammates enjoy consistently good match-ups all the way up until they face Arsenal in GW-11.
Sergio Reguilón (£4.4m, MUN v CRY)
With Man United in the midst of a favorable run of fixtures, and with Shaw and Malacia still sidelined, Reguilon is an enticing prospect. The Red Devils have a solid shot at a clean sheet this weekend against an Eagles side that is averaging just one goal per game, and Reguillon adds attacking threat to his defensive potential.
Anthony Gordon (£5.6m, NEW v BUR)
Averaging a goal contribution every 90.2 minutes, Gordon had already established himself as an important part of Eddie Howe’s side. But the 22 year-old should now be nailed-on after the unfortunate injury to Harvey Barnes, and with Newcastle’s fixture list looking rosy for the next four game weeks, he’s a steal at this price point. Be warned though — He has accumulated four yellow cards already, and will be suspended for one EPL match if he receives a fifth before GW20.
Jarrod Bowen (£7.1m, WHU v SHU)
Bowen’s ownership remains below the 10% mark for now, but due to his exceptional form, it probably won’t stay there for much longer. He has notched a goal in four of West Ham’s six games, and he has chipped in with a helper too. Nailed-on for a home match against a bottom-dwelling Blades side that conceded eight goals over the weekend, the Englishman’s appeal is strong.
