GW25 Differentials: Wood to extend Burnley run

The Scout says the Burnley striker has form and fixtures to profit from the next month

The form of Chris Wood (£6.2m) could appeal to Fantasy Premier League managers looking for the next cut-price striker.

The Burnley forward has scored in three of the last five Gameweeks, helping the Clarets to an unbeaten run in that period.

The New Zealander is one of four Differentials selected for Gameweek 25 ahead of the Saturday 2 February, 11:30 GMT deadline.

Chris Wood (BUR) £6.2m

His record since Gameweek 20 is impressive, with his 12 shots and 10 shots in the box all top 10 figures among strikers.

Burnley next host a Southampton side with only one clean sheet since Gameweek 10. A visit from Tottenham Hotspur is by far the toughest test of the four fixtures that will follow.

Owned by only 0.4 per cent, Wood should have plenty of opportunities to continue his excellent run of form.

Nathan Ake (BOU) £5.0m

The AFC Bournemouth centre-back has two goals and two clean sheets in the last five Gameweeks.

Indeed, Ake's totals of five shots in the box and three shots on target both place him second among FPL defenders during that run.

Owned by 4.8 per cent of managers, he travels to a Cardiff City side who have scored 20 goals, the second-lowest total in the Premier League.

Bernard (EVE) £5.9m

Everton's two fixtures in Gameweek 25 have led to a surge in demand for their players, with four in the top 25 for transfers in.

The 0.2 per cent-owned Bernard is not one, even though he has started the Toffees' last three fixtures.

Only three midfielders have surpassed his seven key passes in that period as Everton prepare for home matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City.

Danilo (MCI) £5.1m

Pep Guardiola's side are the other team to feature twice in Gameweek 25, starting with a home match against an Arsenal team without an away clean sheet this season.

Full-back Danilo, with 1.4 per cent ownership, has started six successive Premier League matches.

And he has shown his potential for points at both ends of the pitch.

He has two clean sheets from the last four Gameweeks and his seven shots on goal are joint-top among defenders over that time frame.
