Our community score predictions panel are back. Here they take a look at the what they expect to happen in the Gameweek 8 fixtures. The Gameweek 8 community score predictions are there to help managers make key decisions. When making FPL decisions many FPL managers mentally predict the outcome of matches and use this to target players. Here they predict who will win in Gameweek 8.
The community score predictions panel is back for another season. In these articles we will ask the panel to consider the questions that FPL managers ask themselves ahead of setting up their teams
- Who will win?
- Will there be a clean sheet in this match?
- How many goals can I see being scored?
- How many players do I want to play in this game?
Our community score predictions panel share their predictions for Gameweek 8 and consider what this might mean for our FPL plans.
With the Gameweek 7 fixtures postponed the leaderboard remains as it was after Gameweek 6.
- FPL Shake n Bake – 48
- = FPL Reactions – 45
- = FBL Thinker – 45
- Pilot Flame – 42
- FPL Rabbi – 37
- El Statto – 36
- FPL Inzaghi – 30 (no predictions registered in Gameweek 4)

Gameweek 8 community score predictions
Key talking points
The panel are unanimous in their feelings that Newcastle and Spurs will win at home in Gameweek 8. They also all believe that Man City will win away. With the exception of FBL
The panel are predicting just nine clean sheets this week. The majority believe that Man City and Newcastle will keep a clean sheet. Therefore they could be the defences to invest in.
Between them the panel have predicted 102 goals will be scored. Newcastle, Man City and Spurs are predicted to score the most goals in Gameweek 8. Therefore these are potentially attacking teams for FPL managers to target.
Gameweek 8 has already been altered, and it currently seems that all seven remaining fixtures will go ahead. It would be sensible to leave your transfers as late as possible in case anything changes. Especially with the European matches in midweek..
If all goes ahead, I will be looking to target Tottenham players against Leicester. I think that Salah to Son could be a very popular transfer this week. Son’s his underlying stats are on the way up, and he’s due a return.FPL Shake n Bake
