My FPL Gameweek 9 transfer plans and whether I’ll be keeping or selling Salah

Three-time top 5k finisher Az reveals his current Gameweek 9 plans in his latest Pro Pundits column.


So after my article last week, I’m back to give my thoughts about the, quite frankly, chaotic international break and what it means for my own team going forward.

I’m writing this on Tuesday evening and I currently have three “flags” in my team: Ben Chilwell (£6.0m), Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m). This could all change in the next few days but I’m feeling quite lucky, as I know plenty of managers have the likes of Raheem Sterling (£11.5m), Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) and even Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) and are sweating on their fitness and availability for the weekend.

It’s a difficult time, and if you’ve made early moves, don’t beat yourself up. While it is generally advisable to wait as long as possible to gather as much information as you can, sometimes price fluctuations mean that you have to take a risk to avoid being “locked out” of the moves that you want to make.

In the October international break, I made some early moves that made me a tidy profit of £0.6m on my team value. Okay, it meant that I had to play the Wildcard the same week when issues started to arise, but I still think that it was an acceptable risk for that kind of team value. It was only the late injury to Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) that really forced my hand, and without that, I’d probably still have it in my pocket.

Those without Wildcards or even Free Hits need to factor this into their decision making, but as always, sometimes the early moves can pay off and set you up nicely for the weeks ahead. I cannot say I wouldn’t have moved early to dump the likes of Alexander-Arnold, Callum Wilson (£6.6m), Mitchell or Danny Ings (£8.3m), who we are all fairly sure aren’t going to make miraculous recoveries for the next Gameweek.

Is now the right time for some restructuring? 2

Armed with only one free transfer this week, I have shown patience over the international break. In my previous article, I talked up the upcoming potential of the likes of De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes (£10.6m) but have yet to make an official move for either player.

Salah’s fitness status is weighing on my mind.

    Would you do this ?

    Salah + Son to Kdb + Bruno for -4 ?

    Or maybe just Salah to Bruno and Son to kdb next week?

    Guaita Steer
    Targett Chilwell Coufal Justin Mitchell
    Salah Son Grealish Zaha Reed
    Kane Dcl Werner

    1FT 0.9itb

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Salah to Bruno is enough

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 17 days ago

      That's the dilemma for many on here. Do you want/have a plan to get Salah back in time for Fulham?

      1. dopellganger
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        If he is fit , i can downgrade Kane/Werner or ship kdb/bruno if they fail next 2

    3. popey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Like it - I'm making those moves with 2ft pending more injury news

      Will aim to get salah back for Fulham game by something like Bowen/Kane > Salah/Bamford

  2. dicky2014
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 17 days ago

    Salah OUT for Grealish or KDB for free?

    Whichever I don’t pick will then be brought in for Son the following week.

    1. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Get Grealish then. Kinder fixture this week than KdB's.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Assuming you're asking KDB vs Grealish this GW, Ryan's Kepa-esque form would sway me towards Grealish.

      1. dicky2014
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah for this gameweek and then the other one will come in the next gameweek.

  3. AJ24

    Rate my WC please

    Martinez, Ryan
    Dias, Chilwell, Justin, Kilman, J Lewis
    Mane, KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Soucek
    DCL, Watkins, Bamford

    0.2m ITB - Would likely look to get King Mo back in once know what is going on..

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Looks good, although surely you can upgrade Lewis to Coufal

    2. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      By the time you need Salah (GW12), you can ditch DCL for a 6.5 and have the money you need to upgrade him. So don't keep the 0.2m.

      1. Black Knights
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        I'm similar btw. I'm currently:

        Martinez McCarthy
        Dias, Cancelo, Justin, Coufal, C Taylor
        Ziyech, KdB, Bruno, Grealish, Bissouma
        DCL, Watkins, Kane

        I don't fancy Chelsea's game so doubled up there. And can't part with Kane it seems.

        1. AJ24
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I am slightly worried about the Cancelo/Dias inclusion as I was looking at doubling up also. Pep just loves to tinker
          Out of curiosity what is your team value? Mine is £101.2m

          1. Black Knights
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            I’m 102.4m. I think Dias will be nailed, Cancelo may get rested sometimes, but my others defenders cover the odd omission.

      2. Voodoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        That’s if he’s out for two. Has this been confirmed? Excuse my ignorance.

        1. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          I don't know. I just don't consider him urgent for brighton then Wolves but would want him for Fulham, which is still 3 weeks away.

          1. Voodoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Yeah, see the point.

          2. Voodoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Personally I would want to be able to do it in one move otherwise, with injuries etc, it could be an uphill battle to get him back.

        2. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          It’s confusing. PL protocol says a postive test requires a player to self-isolate for 10 days, with a retest on day 10, so no chance he makes Brighton.

          However, if he has another tomorrow and tests negative, he should be allowed to travel back to the UK; logic would also suggest there would be no need for him to self-isolate anymore, and since he has no symptoms of Covid there would be nothing to stop him from playing against Brighton. I hope Klopp clears everything up in tomorrow’s presser.

    I was willing to hold, for I cannot take yet another hit and I do like my team, but the Salah news are making me want to WC. Should I?

    Mendy (4.0)
    Chilwell*, Lamptey, KWP (Dallas, Mitchell*)
    Bruno, James Rodríguez, Grealish, Salah* (Harrison)
    Kane, DCL, Bamford

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      How many players would you change?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Team would be

        McCarthy / Forster
        Chilwell / Targett / Lamptey / Kilman / Coufal
        KDB / Bruno / Ziyech / Grealish / Jota
        Vardy / DCL / Bamford

        0.5 itb

        What do you think?

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Front 8 looks great, almost too good since you’ll have a benching headache. If I were you, I would be tempted to downgrade either Jota or Bamford and put some more money into your defence.

          e.g. If you drop Bamford to someone like Brewster, you could sell DCL for him GW12 when Everyon’s fixtures take a turn for the worse.

          I would also want more than one City player for their upcoming run.

          Re: whether to WC or not - I probably wouldn’t. Wait a week, at least. You have players like Rodriguez who could do damage this week and the following two; and Salah might be back next week.

          1. sirmorbach
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Very very helpful indeed. Thank you, sir!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Any time.

    2. Voodoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 days ago

      How many hits have you taken?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        One, but already took one too many this season 😐

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 17 days ago

      Make a draft WC, if your instincts love it you'll know what to do.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 17 days ago

        Team would be

        McCarthy / Forster
        Chilwell / Targett / Lamptey / Kilman / Coufal
        KDB / Bruno / Ziyech / Grealish / Jota
        Vardy / DCL / Bamford

        0.5 itb

        What do you think, mate?

        1. Voodoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 17 days ago

          Personally, I would do that but wouldn’t want the benching headache, so maybe downgrade the 5th mid to upgrade elsewhere.

          1. sirmorbach
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Very very much appreciated!

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 17 days ago

          2/3 of the starting defenders are the same. JRod = Ziyech (IMO) over the next 3, Grealish/DCL/Bamford/Bruno are the same, doesn't really feel like you're making that many changes on WC.

          1. Voodoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            Remember he’s already taken a hit so could wipe that out.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Even then, a WC is a massive tool at your disposal.

              1. sirmorbach
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 17 days ago

                Thank you very much indeed for taking your time, lads.

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 17 days ago

                  So have you WCd or not?

                  A pleasure discussing with you, you're a nice guy.

                  1. sirmorbach
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 17 days ago

                    Right back at you, sir.

                    And I hope you don't change your mind about me, but I ended up activating my WC, haha. But the truth is, I ended up following your first advice anyway after all: "if your instincts love it you'll know what to do".

                    That's it, I went for it. I liked it, and I felt I was being too cautious. Last season I just had to use it eventually because I'd lose it anyway.

                    Again, thanks for the thoughts and do count on me if I may be helpful. Good luck!!

          Best captain to go for this week? I’m stuck between Bruno or DCL...

          1. doher.ty
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Bruno, Grealish, DCL or something even puntier could come off this week.

            • ...al
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Good week for a punt

              1. Big_Bear
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 17 days ago

                Jota is on my radar! Or is that too punty

          2. xHaTr
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 17 days ago

            I know a -8 sounds crazy but surely these moves are worth it if Salah is out for 2 gameweeks?

            Salah, Trent, Foden --> KDB, Cancelo, Bruno

            1. Jdpz
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 17 days ago

              probably yes

            2. Hart-ake
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 17 days ago

              Great moves. Assume you would captain Bruno?

              1. xHaTr
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 17 days ago

                Probably would yes. Although DCL has only blanked once all season and is playing Fulham, so I am tempted

            3. doher.ty
                3 months, 17 days ago

                It depends who is on your bench, could maybe get away with one transfer this week. Hard to really judge the moves especially for a -8 when it's just straight up.

                1. xHaTr
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 17 days ago

                  Bench is usually Ayling, Anguissa and Mitchell

                  Had always intended to sell Foden and Trent this week

                  Salah to KDB for another -4 seems worth it if its instead of playing Ayling for two weeks I'd imagine

                  1. doher.ty
                      3 months, 17 days ago

                      We don't know it's 2 weeks yet though. If it's one week its def not worth it and even if it is two - those transfers you're making are spreading the cash around will you have enough to buy back or are you comfortable going without?

                • 4 Years
                3 months, 17 days ago

                Have Martial. Ok to get Bruno too, for a -4, by moving out Salah? The midfield is:

                Salah Sterling Son Ziyech Podence

                Getting Bruno for Salah will allow me to do Martial to Vardy next GW. Or should I get someone else?

                  Just remember, you may want Salah back for Fulham in GW12.

                What do y'all think of my team.
                I've already spent 8.... am I in trouble?

                Martinez
                Robbo Chilwell Cresswell KWP
                Salah Bruno(c) Ziyech Barkley
                DCL Kane

                (Forster/Kilman/Brewster/Branthwaite)

                    How did you already spend a -8 and still unsure if you can put out 11? What were the moves?

                      don't ask. It was years ago (feels like it)

                      1. doher.ty
                          3 months, 17 days ago

                          Fair enough. Honestly, I'd hold and play 10 men if it comes to it. Very few -12 comes off. Hope that Kilman and maybe Brewster play.

                        6 defenders?

                      Watkins or Bamford on WC? Got Grealish already

                        Grealish has nothing to do with this decision.

                        Watkins for me, penalties are appealing and so are the fixtures.

                        Bamford

                        Ignore the fixtures. Leeds kept more possession than Man City and Liverpool when they played them

                        He will get a crazy number of chances every single game and his xG from open play is unmatched by anybody, let alone anybody at only 6 million

                      I’m unfortunately on a free hit with many injuries, hopefully it can pay off..

                      Martinez
                      Digne Telles Van Aanholt
                      Rashford Fernandes Ziyech DeBruyne
                      Calvert-Lewin Werner Watkins

                      Other options are Grealish/Vardy for DeBruyne/Watkins
                      How does this look?

                        Prefer Grealish and Vardy over KDB and Watkins

                        On a FH i would take a punt on Auba instead of KDB

                          Warby do NOT do this, I took a punt on him last GW, he is USELESS

                          not a fan of kilman (tough fixtures and might not play this weekend), double villa defence is too much.

                          Wouldn't have Zaha although been in good form this season so thats just personal preference.

                          strikers are lovely.

                            Kilman is cheap though .. any suggestions?

                                keep - he's just a bench player most weeks, no reason to chop and change.

                          Pick the best defense 4, to play 3 each week:

                          A) Bellerin, KWP, Cancelo, Coufal

                          B) Bellerin, KWP, Cresswell, Lamptey

                          C) Bellerin, KWP, James, Dier

                                due to rotation between teams of 4 available players

                              A) Lamptey + Jota as a 5th mid (+ a little benching headache, with him and Bamford)
                              B) Cancelo + Soucek as a 5th mid

                                  Had a look at fixtures and should bring in Grealish really. Probably captain him.

                                Salah's price dropping so hard, at this rate I'll be able to make the Mane -> Salah straight swap in GW12! Love it.

                                            Hope so! Leicester will give a tough game.

                                        he doesn't own salah, he just spends all day posting about him trying to freak out owners by saying things like DROPPING SO HARD FREAK OUT EVERYONE while most people with any sense just wait and see how the int break plays out then makes their move

                                          You've spent more time complaining than I have writing these posts 😆 😆

                                          I've been telling Salah owners to be patient but sure, bring your own narrative here, buddy.

                                            you've spent a week repeatedly amplifying the lie that salah is sinking like a stone. Like i mean, again and again and again and again. About 20 times. And he's dropped what so far in that whole time, 0.1? Christ alive that doesn't even represent a loss to most managers

                                    How many games Salah likely to miss then? Just seen the news on his positive Covid test

                                      Definitely 1, could be 2, very unlikely to be 3. We'll probably learn more by Friday once the gurus have done their research and generously shared it.

                                        1 maybe 2 but I thought I read somewhere that he is taking another test this week.

                                        Probably one Premier and one Champions league.

                                      A. KDB for Salah play Foden?
                                      B. KDB and Bamford for Salah and Brewster -4?

                                          Is Bamford worth a -4 this week?

                                        Random question - what app do people use for up the the minute football scores and lineups etc?

                                        Thoughts on this plan for next 2 GWs?

                                        GW9:
                                        Salah + Maupay + Robertson > Bruno + Vardy + Coufal (-8)
                                        GW10:
                                        Son + Konsa > Grealish + Dias/Cancelo (-4)

                                        Martinez Steer

                                          Do you have a plan/ do you want Salah/Mane in time for Fulham GW12?

                                            Will be going Salahless most probably.
                                            Have Vardy as a C option for gw 12

                                        Looking forward to a future gw with two free transfers - and all I will do is to transfer Mitchell to a 3.8 million defender to save some money...

                                          I’d imagine something is likely to come up before then

                                          I'd go C and cap Werner/Grealish/DCL this GW.

                                            Was intending to hold on but after the repeat positive test, I believe he could miss 2 PL games and even if there is some uncertainty around it, I think it's enough for me to consider moving him on.

                                          Think I'd go C if there isn't a future route to him, A otherwise
