GW23 Differentials: Mac Allister can star again

The Scout 20 Jan 2022

Argentinian has 24 points in last three matches and is one of four low-owned players backed to shine

The Scout is tipping four low-owned players who could be set for a breakout Gameweek 23 in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline.

Alexis Mac Allister (BHA) £5.3m, 0.8 per cent owned

A trip to Leicester City gives the Argentinian the opportunity to continue his improving form.

The Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder has produced 24 points in his previous three outings, combining two goals and an assist with five bonus points.

The underlying numbers further highlight Mac Allister’s growing influence on the Seagulls’ attack.

His totals of 14 shots, five shots on target and 11 key passes are all more than any team-mate in the last six Gameweeks.

Chris Wood (NEW) £6.7m, 1.5%

His new team-mate Allan Saint-Maximin (£6.6m) is the most-bought forward in Gameweek 23, earning 90,000 new owners for Newcastle United’s visit to Leeds United

However, Wood has already had a successful meeting with Marcelo Bielsa's side this season, scoring and earning nine points while at former club Burnley in Gameweek 3.


The New Zealander had an encouraging debut for the Magpies against Watford last weekend; although he failed to score, Wood recorded a team-leading three shots in the box.

Leeds, meanwhile, have conceded 48 shots in the box in their last four matches, the second-most in the competition.

Roberto Firmino (LIV) £8.7m, 3.1%

A return to the Liverpool first XI has boosted the Brazilian’s prospects in Fantasy.

Firmino made his first start since Gameweek 10 last weekend, supplying an assist in the Reds' 3-0 win over Brentford.

A trip to Crystal Palace looks promising for more returns. Firmino produced 16 points at Selhurst Park last season, scoring twice and supplying an assist in a 7-0 victory. 

Daniel Podence (WOL) £5.5m, 0.2%

The winger has boasted Wolverhampton Wanderers’ main goal threat recently ahead of their match at Brentford.

Podence's totals of 11 shots and six shots on target in his last four matches are both more than double that of any Wolves team-mate.

His six chances created also placed top for Bruno Lage's side, highlighting his all-round potential.

Since the publication of this week's 'Differentials' it has been announced that Burnley v Watford has been rescheduled for 5 February, making Gameweek 23 a Double Gameweek for Burnley and Watford players. See Parts 4 and 5 below.
