Holly’s three differential picks returned a combined 23 points as Antoine Semenyo starred in Bournemouth’s stunning comeback win over Luton in Gameweek 28.

Semenyo’s brace in that win helped him to a 15-point haul as the Cherries pulled clear of relegation trouble with a second-half masterclass.

With plenty of luxury picks in FA Cup action this weekend, Holly’s Gameweek 29 sleeper selections could play an even more significant role in your mini-league as the season heads towards the final straight.

Cristian Romero vs Fulham (A), £5.0m
10.4% ownership

Spurs defender Cristian Romero is among the highest scoring defenders in the game over the last four gameweeks, with a goal, clean sheet and four bonus points netting him 21 points in this period. His side have won three games in this time.

Romero has been involved in six Spurs clean sheets in this campaign, including in the reverse of this fixture which finished 2-0. He’s scored four goals this season, the most of any defender in the game, having had six shots on target.

Dejan Kulusevski vs Fulham (A), £6.8m
3% ownership

Spurs have been reliable goalscorers in recent weeks and while captain Heung-min Son is likely to dominate the transfers in, adding a second midfielder in the form of Dejan Kulusevski could provide fantasy managers with a promising differential.

The right winger has delivered two attacking returns in the last three gameweeks and is one of their most creative players. He sits top for key passes among Spurs assets with 52 and has been unfortunate to only register three assists from 10 big chances created.

Ivan Toney vs Burnley (A), £8.1m
13% ownership

Brentford’s Ivan Toney continues to be a differential in the game, but he could see his ownership rise above 10% with this decimated Blank Gameweek 29 schedule as the Bees travel to relegation candidates Burnley.

Burnley have failed to keep a clean sheet this calendar year, conceding 12 goals in the last four gameweeks alone. Toney has scored just once in the last four gameweeks but only Erling Haaland and Ollie Watkins have had more shots on target than him in this spell.
