FPL - Why Mitoma is the ULTIMATE differential in Fantasy

The minutes and confidence that Japan international Kaoru Mitoma picked up at the Qatar World Cup seem to have done wonders for him.

The Brighton winger has been exceptional since the break and is quickly catching the eye of all Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers.

We're taking an in-depth look at the midfielder and what he offers in Fantasy.

The ULTIMATE differential

Owned by just 1.4% of FPL managers, you won't find better effective ownership on a player than with Kaoru Mitoma.

Playing on the left wing for an attacking Brighton side and priced at just £4.9m in Fantasy, Mitoma provides incredible value.

The budget midfielder has started in all four of the Seagull's last matches, playing 90 minutes on three occasions.

Mitoma has also produced returns in each of his last three outings, scoring two goals and registering one assist, amassing 21 points in that time.

With Leandro Trossard now on his way out the door, Mitoma's minutes are even more secure than before.

Bringing in Mitoma at this price allows you to go for one of the higher-priced players in midfield like Kevin De Bruyne (£12.5m) or Mohamed Salah (£12.8m).

Mitoma's price is sure to rise soon, so it is important to act now.

Brilliant Brighton

Brighton have been exceptional since the highly-rated Italian Roberto De Zerbi was appointed as manager just days after Graham Potter's departure was confirmed back in September 2022.

Currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League, the Seagulls are punching well above their weight.

Five wins from their last seven matches include a 3-0 victory against Liverpool and a 4-1 thumping of Chelsea.

Brighton have proved they can compete with any team on their day and playing under De Zerbi, the likes of Kaoru Mitoma and Solly March (£5.1m) look like they will create something every time they get on the ball in the attacking third.
