The FPL Gameweek 8 preview is packed full of excellent advice from the Fantasy Football Community.
Kevin De Bruyne is set to miss out through injury and so there could be some big transfer decisions to make in FPL Gameweek 8.
Last weekend saw five clean sheets, including from Liverpool. Manchester City stand the best chance in the FPL Gameweek 8 preview according to the bookies odds, with Manchester United also favourable.

Plenty of managers are ditching Liverpool attackers like Mo Salah, in order to jump on Aubameyang who has great form and fantastic fixtures. The underlying statistics on Fantasy Football Hub provide a warning though.
Thinking of shifting Salah to allow funds for Auba?

FPL Prince is shopping for defenders in FPL Gameweek 8 and it’s certainly an area where FPL managers can save funds but still get on board some top defences. Prices are quickly rising though.
There is serious value in defence this year:
1. Soyuncu – £4.6M
🦊 2 clean sheets
🦊 Great fixtures
2. Tomori – £4.6M
🔵 Great fixtures
🔵 Started last 4
3. Matip – £5.5M
🔴 Started 6/7 games
🔴 Tough fixtures
4. Lundstram – £4.4M
🔶 Out of Position

Aguero remains top of the scoring charts and it’s great to see the English players dominating in this department. Aubameyang and Wilson make the shortlist after returning in every Premier League game.

Riyad Mahrez is close to matching De Bruyne for assists this season and Scott from Fantasy Football Pundits is recommending him as a replacement if the Belgian is out long-term.
🔹B. Silva looking at a 6 game ban
🔹Only 3.9% owned
🔹1 point less than Stering
🔹£3.6m cheaper than Sterling
Is now the time to get Mahrez in? He’s in great form, and hearing Pep’s comments about him has filled me with confidence. #FPL
💎MAHREZ IN 💎

The key issue for many FPL managers is the length of time Kevin De Bruyne is set to be out. Ben Dinnery provides a vital update and the prognosis is promising.
Guardiola confirms De Bruyne's groin injury is "not serious" although the midfielder remains a doubt for Sunday. Likely to return after the international break. #MCFC
