FPL is back and Holly is here to delve into the big differential picks. What has she got in store for Gameweek 30?

Our resident FPL expert has been working alongside the Comparison Matrix to determine who the low-ownership picks are that could return big hauls this weekend.

As always, Holly has picked out three players that could prove to be the difference in your mini league this weekend. Will Antoine Semenyo continue his excellent form from Gameweek 28, or will Malo Gusto provide crucial clean sheet points for Chelsea?

Malo Gusto vs Burnley (H)

Chelsea’s Malo Gusto is the most-bought defender ahead of FPL Gameweek 30, with a plum home game against Burnley this weekend and the Blues having the most games of any club to play over the season run-in.

He is a man in form, with two assists in his last four games, the leading defender for creativity in this time and crucially he picked up a bonus point on each of those occasions. Over half of Chelsea’s clean sheets have come at home this season.

Richarlison vs Luton Town (H)

Richarlison returned to the Tottenham squad against Fulham last time out and he could be set for another spell playing out of position as a striker, despite being listed as a midfielder in the game – a real rarity.

Richarlison is one of eight midfielders in the game to hit double digits for goals this season and he has had the most big chances on goal of any Tottenham player, with 15. Opponents Luton Town are without a clean sheet on the road this season, conceding nine goals in their past three.

Antoine Semenyo vs Everton (H)

Bournemouth assets have been popular in FPL this calendar year given their increased schedule, and that remains the same with Double Gameweek 34 on the horizon. While most are invested in talisman Dominic Solanke, strike partner Antoine Semenyo is on the radar.

Semenyo has scored twice the number of goals as Solanke over the last four gameweeks and remains a great differential in the game in just 2.8% of sides. He’s friendly on the budget at just £4.5 million and has completed 90 minutes in his last four league games.
