With half of the Premier League season getting over, the table has started to take shape. Fantasy Premier League managers will now be thinking of re-building their initial Fantasy Squads ahead of FPL Gameweek 26. Amongst the roster, there are a few cheap, lesser-used players who are still bringing in a stream of good returns. Here is a list of a few of FPL Gameweek 26 Differentials that you can bring into your teams. They won’t cost you a fortune, and their low ownership means that a good return from them will greatly boost your ranks.
Ola Aina (Defender) – 4.5 million
The Fulham defender has surprised FPL managers in recent weeks, having collected 28 points in just his last 3 games. In 2 of those games, he has even scored. In total, Aina has scored 3 goals so far this season, which for a defender, is quite impressive. Fulham looks to be a pretty strong team now, unlike how they were back at the start of the season. They’ve kept 3 clean sheets in the last 4 games, they are also a team that looks most appealing fixture-wise in the coming weeks. Fulham plays the double in GW26 against Crystal Palace and Spurs, and they also play during the BGW29 against Leeds. Coming at just 4.5 million, Aina is a great defender which you can start during the DGW26 and then bench whilst they play Liverpool and City, then put back in during the blank. On top of that, Aina is owned by just 1.3% of FPL managers.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Defender) – 4.6 million
Although not having performed anything impressive so far this season, AMN is looking quite promising in his loan time at West Brom. Despite being classed as a defender, he has been implemented at the CM role in his last 3 games. Being in a midfield position on the pitch but a defender in FPL has proven to be very beneficial, notably with Stuart Dallas from Leeds. West Brom is one of the teams playing during the DGW26, against Brighton and Everton. With ownership of just 0.8%, a return from AMN would drastically boost your overall rank. Keep in mind that this move is quite risky, so take the punt of your own accord.
Bertrand Traore (Midfielder) – 5.9 million
Another team looking very appealing fixture-wise is Aston Villa. Bertrand Traore has been a popular player in the Villa side, having scored 5 and assisted 3 in the Premier League so far, this has earned him a total of 80 points. His 33 shots put him 3rd highest at Villa, despite starting just 14 out of 21 games. Villa plays the double in the GW26, against Leeds and Sheffield United. They also play in the BGW29 against Spurs as well. With ownership of just 0.7%, Traore is a brilliant differential.
Matheus Pereira (Midfielder) – 5.4 million
The Brazilian midfielder has tallied 5 goals and 3 assists this season, making him a key star to the West Brom side. His 34 shots mean that Pereira has the most goals, assists, and shots out of all West Brom players. All this has earned him a total of 80 points so far this season, the most out of any West Brom player. West Brom comes up against Brighton and Everton in the DGW26, not the most standout fixtures. However, considering the attacking returns Pereira has provided this season, proving him to be the key driver in West Brom going forward, Pereira is a brilliant asset to have in your FPL squads. With ownership of just 1.5% and a cost of 5.4 million, he is also a bargain midfielder.
