FPL – GAMEWEEK 9

We are finally back after a long boring international break and Premier League offers us a mouth-watering fixture this weekend between two most successful teams in English Football. Liverpool travel to Old Trafford this week and hope to maintain their of unbeatean start to the League.

With the Premier League back this weekend, FPL is also back to give us anxiety over the selection of our FPL teams. This international break has also given injury scares and issues for the upcoming weeks. David De Gea is one of the confirmed injured player for few weeks. Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero are back in full training and are in contention to start the game against Crystal Palace on Saturday. Alexandre Lacazette also offers Arsenal timely fitness boost as French striker returns to full training.

All the injuries issues will be confirmed during the press conferences to be held on friday. We will provide you all the possible players who can excel this gameweek and can be reliable options for long term as well. Alternative Players will also be provided at the end of this article.

Possible Dream Team for this Gameweek ?
Captain Choice – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been a very reliable option up-front for FPL managers from the start of this season. He is priced at £11.1 and is owned by 28.1% FPL managers. His ownership has increased from being 25.2% last week. Aubameyang has 55 points which ranks him second on the list of most points earned by forwards this season in the league. He has registered 11 shots on target this season, most by an Arsenal player. Arsenal are up against Sheffield United on Monday night at Bramall Lane, Sheffield. Arsenal has Fixture Difficulty Rating (FDR) of 2 which makes Aubameyang a threat to score in this fixture. Arsenal are third on the League table and are strong favourites this weekend. Prediction – Sheffield United 2-3 Arsenal.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (number 17)

Kasper Schmeichel£5.128Burnley, FDR – 2

Kasper Schmeichel has a good run of fixtures which makes him a good option for long term. Priced at £5.1 and owned by only 7.9% FPL mangers, makes him very good differential option in goalkeeping department. Leicester City sit pretty at fourth in the league and looks decent side to compete for the top 4 spot. Though Leicester City only have 2 Clean Sheets from the first 8 games but their upcoming fixtures and form makes sense they will have clean sheets coming their way. Leicester City have won all their matches at home this season and look to maintain this record when Burnley visit them on Saturday. Prediction – Leicester City 2-0 Burnley.


Yes, we are suggesting same Back Four for the third week in a row.

NamePricePointsAgainst with Fixture Difficulty Rating (FDR)
Erik Pieters£4.834Leicester City, FDR – 4

Erik Pieters is £4.8 which is quite cheap and affordable. He is owned by 12.0% FPL mangaers which has fallen from 12.6% last week. His fixtures are quite risky and his selection is sure questionable. But Burnley are at the seventh position in the League and only 2 points behind Leicester & Chelsea. And saying that, Burnley next two games are against Leicester and Chelsea. Pieters has made 16 interceptions and 26 tackles in the League games which is most by any Burnley player. He has also registered 3 assists so far this season which is again most by any Burnley player. Erik should have got clean sheets points and maybe bonus as well but he got injured and substituted at 51th minute last gameweek in 1-0 home win against Everton. He should be fit enough for the coming week with the break during international game week. Burnley still remain unbeaten aginst teams outside the ‘Top Six’ in this season. Prediction – Leicester City 2-0 Burnley.

Ricardo Periera£6.240Burnley, FDR – 2

Ricardo Periera is not only Leicester’s best player but also the best defender in the League with joint-most points (40) at the top. He is selected by AGAIN, only 10.7% which is still low in the list of defenders, that makes him a differential. His ownership has been rising over the last few gameweeks but this week is important before his current price, £6.2 (£6.1 last week), rises more in coming weeks. Periera has made 35 tackles in the league, most by any player in the league. Leicester are at 4th spot in the League and have a good run of fixtures ahead which will be excellent for a long run. Prediction – Leicester City 2-0 Burnley.

Aaron Cresswell£5.023Everton, FDR – 3

Cresswell have 23 points only from three games played this season. His price has increased £ 0.1 from last gameweek. He is owned by only 2.1% FPL managers right now which makes him differential. His ownership has increased from 1.7% to 2.1. Cresswell remains a threat from free-kicks. He has already registered 5 shots in just two games and looks a threat on free kicks. West Ham United are away against Everton this gameweek. Everton are out of form recently and West Ham will be looking to capitalise on this. Prediction Everton 1-2 West Ham United.

Mount has points (46) for a Chelsea midfielder and in the list of midfielders in the League he is only behind Kevin De Bruyne, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Raheem Sterling, not bad, huh? Mount is owned by 35.3% FPL managers, which is second most for a midfielder, not a differential anymore, but looks a must have midfielder with win-able fixtures ahead for Chelsea. He has registered 40 crosses, the most by a Chelsea player in the League. Mason Mount is also on corner duty for Chelsea which makes him a threat from corners and other set pieces. Chelsea are against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge this Saturday. Prediction – Chelsea 4-0 Newcastle United.
