Differentials can be the key to unlocking a big boost in points, so who are the best picks this weekend?

With help from Fantasy Football Hub's powerful AI Points Predictions tool, here are the top differentials and their projected points totals for FPL Gameweek 36.

Kai Havertz

  • Fixture: Bournemouth (H); Predicted Points: 5.7

Kai Havertz has fully settled into his striker role at Arsenal, having played in midfield earlier in the campaign. The Germany international is the Gunners' top performing fantasy asset this year, leading Bukayo Saka by four points.

He's racked up seven goal involvements in his last seven games but remains a differential in FPL. Havertz is in fewer than 10% of sides, with many managers selling Arsenal players last time out in favour of assets with two fixtures. He scored against upcoming opponents Bournemouth in the reverse fixture.

Chris Wood

  • Fixture: Sheffield United (A); Predicted Points: 4.7

Nottingham Forest striker Chris Wood is owned by just 2% of teams and shouldn't be overlooked with the fixture of the weekend away to Sheffield United. The Blades are now relegated, having kept only one clean sheet all season while conceding more than half of their goals at Bramall Lane.

Wood has been consistently delivering with three goals in his last six games and Forest's motivation to avoid relegation remains high. He sits top among forwards for big chances on goal in the last six gameweeks with four and scored the winner in the reverse fixture.

Josko Gvardiol

  • Fixture: Wolves (H); Predicted Points: 4.6

Manchester City defender Josko Gvardiol waited until April to score his first goal for the club but has maintained a hot-streak with three strikes in a month in all competitions. Expect City to grind out results in their quest for the title, with clean sheets becoming a common trend.

They've kept three shut-outs in the last six gameweeks alone, with Gvardiol starting all of those matches. Pep Guardiola is notorious for chopping and changing his starting XI but, given the current climate, there's hope the back-line will remain settled for the run in.
