What the experts say

Dejan Kulusevsky (£8.0m) returned from injury at Gameweek 15 and helped harry kane (£11.6m) within two minutes of entering the pitch against Liverpool on Matchday 15.
This was his fifth attacking return of the season in just eight appearances. Kulusevski was instrumental in Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-0 win over Leeds last season, scoring a goal and having more shots into the box in that game than any other player. Kulusevski is a big differential owned by just 4.0 percent of managers.

leon bailey (£4.5m) has three returns in his last three games and is off to a good start under new manager Unai Emery. Despite the tough game against Brighton & Hove Albion, I think this could be a very suitable game for him. Bailey is owned by just 4.4 percent of managers.
Lee Bonfield (@FPLFamily)
Given the yellow flags currently on Alexander Mitrović (6.8 million pounds sterling) and callum wilson (£7.5m), FPL managers may be in the market for a budget striker. Look no further than the 5.5 per cent ownership of AFC Bournemouth dominic solonke (5.8 million pounds sterling). Against an Everton defense that has just conceded two goals at home against Leicester City.

Andrew Robertson (£6.7m) is certainly on my radar as we see Liverpool’s form improve and Southampton look like a good chance for a clean sheet. Robertson is owned just 4.1 percent of the game.
Darwin Nunez (£8.9m) hasn’t lived up to its price to date. But the Liverpool striker could finally shine in a big game at home against Southampton. It’s still a spread owned by just 8.7 percent of managers.
Andy Park (@FPL_Sonaldo)
Although it is not a true differential due to its property Ivan perisic (£5.5m) comes to mind as a clearance due to the Spurs full-back’s rotation.
They looked good in the second half against Liverpool and Perisic was basically at the top of the pitch for Spurs; him playing alongside Kane as a second striker. With a home game against Leeds and a rebound win for Spurs in priority, a Perisic clearance sounds exciting and sensible.
Gianni Buttice (@GianniButtice)
Last week he was one of the most transferred players, which means his ownership has decreased substantially. So even though he owns more than 20 percent wifrido zaha ($7.5m) should be a nice clearance for this week.
He played central in the last half and rewarded his owners with a goal and an assist. When he is Crystal Palace’s most advanced attacker, he is often a very good FPL asset and the game against Nottingham Forest looks good on paper.
I would start with some Man City players, Riad Mahrez (7.5 million pounds sterling) or bernard silva (£6.9m) are good options if starting out.
Liverpool, again some good selections there if the budget allows, Darwin Y andy robertson they’re good clearances for the last week of games before the season stops. In the Spurs both perisic Y Kulusevsky They are good weeknight picks too.
Jaime Pigott (@Futbolislifefpl)
My favorite punt for Gameweek 16 is Darwin if you can find space and budget for it.
Another one I would love to have if I could is Kulusevsky. He means a lot to the Spurs, which he showed over the weekend with his assist shortly after coming off the bench. However, he may not be rushed back into the starting XI, so keep an eye out for Antonio Conte’s press conference first.
