GW20 Differentials: Barnes can punish Hammers

The Scout 28 Dec 2018

The Scout says the Burnley striker could profit from home clash with West Ham's obliging defence

With a run of impressive displays in the last few weeks, Ashley Barnes (£5.6m) could be set for a breakout Gameweek 20 in Fantasy Premier League.

And with a kind run of fixtures on the horizon, the Burnley forward certainly has the potential to deliver big returns.

Barnes is one of four Differentials selected by The Scout for Gameweek 20 ahead of the Saturday 29 December, 14:00 GMT deadline.

Ashley Barnes (BUR) £5.6m

Burnley have endured a tough run of fixtures in recent weeks but Barnes has put in a series of creditable performances for the Clarets.

He scored in their 3-1 defeat at Arsenal in Gameweek 18.

And his seven shots inside the box over the last four Gameweeks is level with Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane (£12.5m).

Barnes, who has an ownership of only 0.5 per cent, will host a West Ham United defence with three clean sheets this season.

Jamie Vardy (LEI) £8.8m

Leicester City's excellent Christmas has involved wins over both Chelsea and Manchester City.

That return to form has partly been down to the attacking threat of Vardy.

The forward has a goal and an assist from those two victories and has scored three times in his last five appearances.

Vardy, who is owned by 3.8 per cent of managers, looks well-placed to continue his fine form at home to Cardiff City.

The Bluebirds are conceding an average of two goals per match away from home this season.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (EVE) £5.3m

The Everton forward has been given limited opportunities to shine this season.

But he seems to be taking his latest chance with some style.

Handed three straight starts for only the second time this campaign, Calvert-Lewin has responded with a goal and two assists.

He will hope to extend that run, and perhaps also his 1.2 per cent ownership, when the Toffees travel to Brighton & Hove Albion tomorrow.

The Seagulls have not kept a home clean sheet since Gameweek 10.

Luke Shaw (MUN) £4.9m

Transfer interest in Manchester United's attacking assets has ballooned since the arrival of caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

That has meant the defender continuing to operate under the radar of many Fantasy managers.

Owned by 5.7 per cent of managers, Shaw has started both matches under Solskjaer, and his raids forward could profit against AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford.

The Cherries have failed to score in their last two away matches and have lost each of their last four on the road.
