While the International Break goes on, here’s the Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 9 report.
We take a look at the big performers from the last 4 matches, in order to make sense of the Gameweek 9 transfer decisions.
The Gameweek 9 Report dream team shows the lineup which has delivered the most Fantasy Premier League points over the last 4 gameweeks.
There’s triple Wolves defence, with clean sheets saves and attacking returns for Patricio (28), Doherty (41) and Jonny (25).
Two Manchester City players feature, with four clean sheets helping Walker (25), plus plenty of attacking returns for Sterling (31). The Arsenal strikers have been in fine form over the last 4 weeks, with Lacazette (30) slightly ahead of Aubameyang (29).
Eden Hazard (47) is the king of the team, but Bournemouth’s Josh King (28) has also been performing well. The Icelandic pairing of Gudmundsson (30) and Sigurdsson (33) feature in the middle of the park.
Goals Gameweek 9 Report
Goals: Eden Hazard (5)
Shots: Sergio Aguero (18)
Shots in the box: Sergio Aguero (16)
Shots on Target: Harry Kane (10)
Headed Goal Attempts: Jamie Vardy, Harry Maguire, Michael Keane (5)
Eden Hazard continues his phenomenal start to the season, scoring 5 goals in this period: he has blanked in just one game to date and looks absolutely essential according to the Gameweek 9 report.

Elsewhere, Sergio Aguero has been going about his business still, despite limited minutes and should see a better run of starts after a rest in the International Break.
Harry Kane has taken two penalties well and managed another goal from open play. Leading the shots on target metric is positive, but the upcoming fixtures could be better.
Leicester have excellent long-term fixtures, so Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire may well be worth a look as differentials, as they lead the headed goal attempts.
Creativity Gameweek 9 Report
Assists: Callum Wilson, Johann Berg Gudmundsson (5)
Goal Attempt Assists: Gylfi Sigurdsson (14)
Chances Created: Calum Wilson, Eden Hazard, Jose Holebas (4)
Successful Crosses: Chris Lowe (9)
Bonus Points: Eden Hazard, Matt Doherty (9)
It’s the Icelandic pairing of Gudmundsson and Sigurdsson running the show in midfield: with assists and attacking returns aplenty. Both have mixed fixtures over the next 4.

Callum Wilson is the unlikely leader of the assist charts: winning some crucial penalties and teeing up his teammates. Three of Bournemouth’s next 4 fixtures are favourable.
Eden Hazard has been creating plenty for his teammates, as well as providing goals himself. Doherty has also bossed the bonus points, with a goal and an assist to go alongside 3 clean sheets in the last 4 games.
Holebas and Lowe are surprise inclusions here. Holebas faces a one match ban in Gameweek 9. Maybe assists could be around the corner for Lowe as the Huddersfield schedule eases.
Team Gameweek 9 Report
Goals: Bournemouth (12)
Least Goals Scored: Cardiff (2)
Clean Sheets: Manchester City (4)
Most Goals Conceded: Fulham, Cardiff (12)
Least Goals Conceded: Manchester City (0)
The Bournemouth attack are leading the way and ought to be invested in for their longer term schedule over the next few weeks: consider King or Wilson as a budget striker.
Laporte and Stones today, though!

Cardiff have Fulham, Liverpool and Leicester in their next 3: attacking coverage from those teams looks wise from those teams as their defence has been woeful.
A Liverpool clean sheet in Gameweek 10 looks likely, as well as a Leicester clean sheet in Gameweek 11. If you don’t currently have a Manchester City defender, it’s not too late to jump on board.
