One of the keys to success in Fantasy is identifying one or two key differentials that can help propel you up the rankings.

Fantasy expert Chuck Booth is backing two low-owned forwards to do just that over the opening Gameweeks.

The first is Newcastle United's reclassified forward Allan Saint-Maximin (£6.5m), who is currently sat in only 4.3 per cent of opening squads.

"I would prefer going into the season with a proven asset as opposed to a promotion candidate in Ivan Toney," Booth explains. 

"I think the partnership between Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson makes up quite a formidable strikeforce."

The other differential catching Booth's eye is Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus (£8.5m), owned by only 3.4 per cent of managers.

"While City will play some with a false nine, until another forward ends up coming in to Manchester City, Gabriel Jesus will start quite a few games and there's just too much potential there to not include him out of the gate," says Booth.
