#CalledIt Differential Pick - GW24

To tell you the truth, if it wasn't for this self imposed limitation (#CalledIt picks can't be repeated over the course of three GWs) Santi Cazorla would have been made my pick. On form, has scored three goals in the last two games and still owned by only 3.5% of FPL managers. At the same time, he has two VERY tough match-ups following the home game versus Crystal Palace (a match-up that probably looks better on paper than in real-life). A possibly great 1 GW differential.

David Silva, despite going against Chelsea, should be involved in the play if City manage to score a goal or two, so I would gladly give him the call - yet he is now owned by 5.1% of managers. This 0.1% makes him ineligible, which makes me go Aaaaaaargghhhhhhhh!

Another potential great option would be Kevin Mirallas who is set to lead the attack following the injury of the big Belgian and was very lively against Liverpool as well, as one of the few. Would make a great pick, but also just over with 6.8% ownership. 

With all this in mind, I have decided to turn to a team that is also scoring goals with ease (less than MCFC mind you, but still not bad), Liverpool. Somewhat of an underperformer this year, he has all the prerequisites to be an amazing FPL asset, but has just failed to click yet. Why not this week? #CalledIt pick for GW24, Phillippe Coutinho. He had 2 shots on goal against Everton and also created 4 chances, with one being an assist out of those. 

P.S. Can you imagine that even Ben Arfa is owned by more than 7% of managers? 

Oh yeah, follow me at @CalledItFPL account now. :D
