International Football

Which FPL players are on international duty and when ahead of Gameweek 9

The final international break of the calendar year is underway, with over 200 Premier League players in action for their nations over the next week.

Some international sides are again cramming in a triple-header of games over this period and, as was the case in September and October, a handful of Fantasy assets will be taking part in all three of their respective countries’ matches.

Fatigue is certainly a concern ahead of Gameweek 9, then, be it through on-field exertions on the continent or due to long-haul flights back from further afield.

As was the case last month, a host of European teams – including England – are scheduled to contest UEFA Nations League games on Wednesday evening.

Gameweek 9 begins less than 72 hours after these matches have been played, with Newcastle United v Chelsea the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

The main concern might be the number of World Cup qualifiers held in South America, however.

The likes of James Rodriguez (£7.9m), Richarlison (£7.8m), Roberto Firmino (£9.2m), Thiago Silva (£5.5m) and Alex Telles (£5.5m) will have to endure long-distance flights back from their respective countries after being in action late on Tuesday night or in the early hours of Wednesday morning (UK time).

After the international break in October, Rodriguez, Richarlison and Firmino all started their clubs’ Gameweek 5 fixture (the early-afternoon Merseyside derby) but Thiago was rested by Chelsea.

Players such as Sadio Mane (£12.0m), Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) are all in African Cup of Nations qualifying duty over the coming days, meanwhile.

The likes of Raul Jimenez (£8.4m) and Son Heung-min (£9.6m) have an easier ride, however, with Mexico and South Korea among the teams in friendly action in Europe.

    Can’t decide between going 352 or 343.

    A) Ziyech and Brewster bench in 352
    B Anguissa and Antonio, Watkins or Bamford in 343 (+1,5-2m itb)

    As Portugal play their last game tonight, safe (-ish, Corona lurking) to do Mitchel to Cancelo before the next price change time if he gets through unscathed? It's be annoying to miss a price rise. Bench would be: Robertson Chillwell Salah, no others flagged -yet (famous last words).
