As Gameweek 6 approaches, we turn our attention to the top-5 FPL differentials for GW6. Differentials are players with under 10% ownership, so a successful selection of a differential can easily send you up the rankings.

If you were lucky enough to get on differentials #1 and #2 last week, you would have gained 22 points thanks to Sarr and Saint-Maximin’s standout performances in GW5.

Differential #5: Andrew Robertson (Liverpool) – 1.6% TSB

After being rested in GW5 and eased back in from his ankle injury, Andy Robertson should now be at full fitness again. Despite Tsimikas being an impressive cover for Robertson, the Scotland international is in a league of his own – and provides a wealth of experience in comparison to Tsimikas.

Doubling up on Liverpool’s defence this week with Alexander-Arnold could be a good option for those looking to Wildcard in GW7 – as it prevents any permanent changes in team structure.

At just 1.6% ownership in FPL, Robertson presents a massive opportunity for points against Brentford. The Bees have scored just 5 goals in 5 games this season, so it should not be too much of a difficulty for Liverpool to shut them down.

The Reds have already accumulated 4 clean sheets this season – and with Van Dijk back, they just about appear to be back to their best.

Robertson has created an average of 4 chances per game from his two starts this season, which is second-best in the league – just behind his counterpart Alexander-Arnold. As a result, we should not be surprised to see Robertson score big with an assist and clean sheet in GW6.
