We take a look at some of the FPL experts ahead of Gameweek 9. With the new Gameweek approaching, we check out what some of the most elite managers have been talking about in the build up whether that be players to invest in, players to avoid and more.
Looking at what some of the FPL experts ahead of Gameweek 9 are talking about could be highly beneficial to other managers. Whether they discuss expected minutes, potential transfer targets, chip strategy or other key factors, it can all help to provide clarity within our own teams.
Fantasy Football Scout contributor and content creator Harry highlighted one of the biggest moments during Gameweek 8. There was a lot of expectation around the opening game this week as the in-form Tottenham took on newly promoted side Luton.
Many within the community owned the likes of James Maddison and Son Heung-min. The former returned due to his assist but Son fell short and slumped to a three-point return when some had even captained him. They face Fulham next up who have also been ropey at the back. However, although great assets, some could be reluctant to give either the armband again.
Chelsea fan and Fantasy Football Scout contributor Louis brought up an interesting asset during the last round. The Blues have been inconsistent but very good when coming up against much weaker sides and we saw that in their 4-1 win over Burnley.
One player who frustrated former owners was Raheem Sterling. The winger managed a massive 16 points after scoring, picking up two assists and claiming three bonus points. Another player who could be a very good option moving forward is midfielder Cole Palmer. Palmer bagged 12 points for his goal and assist but one of the most significant things that occurred was that Palmer took a penalty. He comes in at just £4.9m so could be a brilliant budget friendly option moving forward.
Content creator FPL Architect was one of many who emphasised the Manchester United midfielders this week. The Reds took on Brentford in Gameweek 8 and were trailing for most of the game until two goals at the death won them the game 2-1.
Although bagging two goals this week both Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford failed to return any significant points again. Many managers would have sold both but some are looking to hang onto them for their next match against Sheffield United, one of the worst defences in the league. It is also worth noting that Manchester United have brilliant fixtures after Manchester City so they could be a tough sell long term.
It was a massive round for goalkeepers this week as Fantasy Football Scout Pras discusses one of them who has been a major disappointment throughout the entire season until now. Ahead of the new campaign many chose to start the season with Pickford. The England international played seven matches and failed to return in any of them.
To the despair of his sellers Pickford collected a huge nine points against Bournemouth this week. Another popular goalkeeper who may be at a turning point is Nottingham Forest man Matt Turner. Ahead of Gameweek 8 Turner mustered up just one return from his first seven matches. This week Turner banked six points but next week he faces Luton so could have great potential again.
