The best FPL goalkeepers for a Gameweek 8 Wildcard

Following the rundown of suggestions for stand-out Fantasy Premier League (FPL) forwards and midfielders for Gameweek 8 and beyond, we continue the search with the pick of the goalkeepers.

We previously asked Fantasy Football Scout users with a Wildcard intact when they planned to activate this prized chip, and just under 30% of the responses were for this current Gameweek.

The article below – an updated version of the one we published in Gameweek 7 – looks at the best buys at the back with those FPL managers in mind but the targets are, of course, also relevant for those using ‘free’ transfers in Gameweek 8.

All stats and graphics included in this piece are taken from our Premium Members Area.

Here are some of the more interesting goalkeepers for your Wildcard:

Aaron Ramsdale

Xhaka and Moura recalled as Ramsdale starts again

It may be best to whisper this but Arsenal are looking defensively solid again. After a promising second half of last season yielded nine clean sheets from 23 games, three of which came in the final five, Mikel Arteta’s side have conceded just once in the four games since Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m) was installed as first-choice goalkeeper.

In that time, Arsenal have conceded fewer big chances than any other Premier League side.

It’s important to factor in the calibre of opposition when reflecting on those numbers but there are more favourable games on the horizon, with the Gunners’ next six matches including home fixtures against Crystal Palace, Watford and Newcastle United.

Ramsdale has impressed so far and, at such a reasonable price, meets the preferences of those managers who prefer the value of cheap ‘keepers.

Ederson

Expensive goalkeepers don’t tend to be a popular tactic in FPL when the £100m can only stretch so far. Those at the top clubs tend to face fewer shots and therefore make fewer saves, as well as being hampered by the inability to make the attacking contributions – and rack up bonus points – that make full-backs such as Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) such coveted assets.

However, with budget defenders like Shane Duffy (£4.3m) and Tino Livramento (£4.2m) seeming too good to ignore, buying Ederson (£6.0m) could be a useful and secure way to gain coverage of Manchester City’s supreme defence ahead of a strong run of fixtures. Their 42 shots conceded is far lower than second-best Wolves’ 68 – a domination that continues in expected goals conceded (xGC), attempts conceded in open play and most other defensive categories.

Robert Sanchez

The game’s most-selected goalkeeper and with good reason. Last season, Brighton’s defence had fantastic underlying stats that somehow didn’t materialise. Their xGC was third-best but only 12 clean sheets were kept, resulting in a 16th-place finish. Things look better this time, with only two sides – Manchester City and Chelsea – conceding fewer goals so far.

At the back of this defence is Spain international Robert Sanchez (£4.6m). He emerged from nowhere to make his debut last November and, after securing his place in Gameweek 13, helped the Seagulls to ten clean sheets from 26 matches. Already on three for this campaign, Brighton are sixth in the league and about to have promising fixtures against Norwich City (a) and Newcastle (H). There are some iffier games around those two matches but for a long-term goalkeeper who allows you to concentrate on transfers elsewhere, Sanchez is a reliable option.

David Raya

Despite conceding three times against Liverpool, Brentford’s defence have been a strong addition to the league with three clean sheets from seven matches. Until that six-goal thriller, only Man City and Wolves had allowed fewer shots through their backline.

It stems from a formation change towards the end of the Bees’ successful promotion season, in which they moved from a back four to a wing-back system. Whilst they let in more goals than fellow new boys Norwich City and Watford, this late switch has continued into the top flight and has been boosted further with the club-record signing of Kristoffer Ajer (£4.5m). Brentford look good at both ends of the pitch and David Raya (£4.6m) – comfortable on the ball – will be a strong pick for the Burnley (a), Norwich (H), Newcastle (a) run that starts from Gameweek 10.

Ben Foster

Is £4.0m FPL goalkeeper Foster the new Watford number one? 3

The Watford stopper is in over 20% of FPL squads, having been seen as the cheap £4.0m back-up most likely to get games – and all it took was five matches until he stepped in for Daniel Bachmann (£4.4m). He conceded goals to Norwich, Newcastle and Leeds but just making appearances and collecting save points is good enough for his price tag and ’emergency back-up option’ status.

FPL managers probably wouldn’t want to be playing Foster all that often: Watford are one of two clubs without a shut-out to their name and are about to embark on a nasty set of matches that includes home clashes with Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United between Gameweeks 8 and 15.

There is also the concern that new Watford boss Claudio Ranieri will re-address his new club’s goalkeeper pecking order after succeeding Xisco Munoz.

Also consider

Jimenez ends goal drought as Arsenal claim convincing north London derby win 8

Vicente Guaita and Alex McCarthy are both £4.5m, possess two clean sheets and rank mid-table for their teams’ ability to prevent shots, yet the former has still been able to rack up 22 saves. If McCarthy continues to hold off Fraser Forster (£4.4m) as Southampton’s number one keeper, there is a great run of fixtures between Gameweeks 8 and 15 where the Saints face only one Champions League opponent.

Jose Sa (£5.0m) costs slightly more but pulled off a rare goalkeeping assist in Gameweek 6 when setting up Raul Jimenez’s (£7.5m) winner, delighting his ownership with a 14-point haul. Similar to Guaita, he has made a high number of saves despite Wolves conceding the second-fewest number of shots throughout the league. Their xGC is only bettered by Man City, Everton and Brighton, making Sa a good pick for upcoming meetings with Crystal Palace (a), Norwich (a) and Burnley (H).

        Assuming no Ramsdale... I'd go White

        2-2 so far. Might have to flip a coin.

          I have both and playing Liv. It's his attacking element that swings it for me and also Raphinha may not play.

            If Bamford is also out that would sway me to Livramento.

          White is more likely to keep a CS but Livra has much more attacking threat.

        6 days, 23 hours ago

        On WC:

        Ramsdale | Foster
        Duffy | Rudiger | TAA | Cancelo | Livra
        Mbeumo | Raph | Salah | Foden | Townsend
        Antonio | Lukaku | Hwang

        0.2 ITB

        1 - As is
        2 - Town & Hwang to Doug L & Toney
        3 - Town & Hwang to Doug L & Maupay

        Or other...

          I like 2 but you could go 1 with the basis off moving to 2 in 2/3 weeks time Townsend will become the assister with DCL back. With Richarlison back too who knows?

          If I had to pick now I'd probably get Ramsdale though.

        Which move this week?

        B. Shaw to Cancelo

        1. BrockLanders

          I have 2 FT and 0.3 itb

          Can you please suggest which transfer I should do?

          My team atm
          Sanchez Foster
          TAA Rudiger white Liver omoba
          Salah Raphina Jota Grealish Brownhill
          Toney Ronaldo Antonio

          I was thinking of doing Jota to Foden but seems like Jota might start and you never know with Pep.

          so I could also do Jota to 4.5 mid and Omoba to Cancelo/Dias. Then it might be too heavy on defense and light on mid.

          Not sure what to do.

          Please help me out

            • 2 Years

            Jota to Mbeumo or Saka and roll 2nd FT

            Good new for non-owners. Gives owners a headache on whether to sell him or not. Firmino stayed at the club during the IB

            1. BrockLanders
              • 6 Years
              6 days, 22 hours ago

              He's massively due, whether starting or cameoing.

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 2 Years
                6 days, 22 hours ago

                He misses far too many chances and generally ends up with 1 return

                1. BrockLanders
                  • 6 Years
                  6 days, 22 hours ago

                  We'll see. He can't keep missing all those chances. I'd be shocked if he doesn't haul heavily soon..

                  1. Tonyawesome69
                    • 2 Years
                    6 days, 22 hours ago

                    Possibly yeah. If you look at the PL games where he got a attacking return, he tends to only score 1 goal. I'm sure he is valuable for the price point but extremely frustrating as an owner

              It's better news for owners ,l. No headache here . Makes life a lot easier . Non owners will be worrying if he starts or when he comes on though

                Yeah, I was starting Sissoko against Liverpool otherwise. This is a huge relief for me.

              Was a head-ache anyhow, no stand-out alternatives in the price bracket this GW, unless buying a Pep lottery ticket

          Which would you prioritize selling from this squad? Have 1FT and 0.6 ITB

          Sanchez
          Livra TAA Rudi Azpi Semedo
          Salah Traore Jota
          Antonio Ronaldo
          (steele, raphina, sissoko, king)

          Semedo > Laporte,Walker
          King > Hwang (triple wolves) Armstrong
          Traore > Saka,ESR,Mbuemo
          Azpi > Cancelo, Dias

          Plenty of options but not sure the best way forward. Ronaldo > Lukaku Gw9

          1. DayOldBlues

              Traore to Saka

              Traore to Arsenal possibly first.
              Prob need Lukaku for gw9 so Ron out.
              Then downgrade Semedo or upgrade King.
              *maybe*

                  Don't know with my setup if better to go safe with rudiger or more risky option

                  A....chilwell

                  C...rudiger

                    With Duffy and Livramento on your bench I feel you can go the riskier route with James over Rudiger.

                    Too much rotation issue with Chilwell and Alonso. Safe option is Rudiger, higher ceiling is James. I'm slightly leaning towards James but need an injury update from Tuchel. He did full training with the squad this week

                    I would risk a Chelsea fullback there Flynny

                  2 FTs:

                  Sarr to Saka is the first Im considering If TAA is back and there arent new injured players.

                  Any other bright ideas, mates?

                  Ramsdale
                  Trent Rudiger Dias Livra
                  Salah Raph Gray Sarr
                  Ronaldo Lukaku

                  Steele Marcal Sissoko Scarlett

                    I would have held Sarr since Liverpool are missing Alisson and Fabinho and possible new manager bounce with Watfrom but since you have 2FTs Sarr is where you can use the transfer.

                    Similar attack to you and that is my move this gw, subject to Arteta press conference tomorrow.

                    Probably, given I don't have him..

                      I really dont mind holding him through these up coming ‘tough’ fixtures. I see a lot of potential.

                      I think if he is fit you gotta have him.

                  Would you swap Alonso to Chillers for free or just hold?

                    I am in this boat and think I will hold - Tuchel might want Alonso’s height vs Brentford

                    Not worth the headache. Transfer out for another player like James or Rudiger

                    If I was getting one in, I would go Chilwell, but I still wouldn't swap.

                  Unsure with my last mid spot on my WC.

                  Looking for midfield suggestions at 9.6m.

                    Mahrez one week punt?

                      I want to try roll a FT in GW9 so not keen on a 1GW punt.

                      6 days, 22 hours ago

                      Maybe torres.. 90 percent sure he starts vs this opposition. Ucl midweek fixture too

                      1. Tonyawesome69
                        • 2 Years
                        6 days, 22 hours ago

                        There is this narrative that Pep will go for a Sterling or Torres in the #9 spot against low block defensive teams but not completely sold on it

                    3. DavvaMC
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      6 days, 22 hours ago

                      I have been toying with Torres as a punt, but will probably bottle it!

                    • 3 Years
                    6 days, 22 hours ago

                    That is tough, as Son and Laporte would be a nice combo or James and just have a 5th 4.0 defender.

                    If not then the world is your Oyster. Unless you go for a Man City punt as your squad is so strong.

                    1. Tonyawesome69
                      • 2 Years
                      6 days, 22 hours ago

                      I just like that Duffy and Livramento combo for any potential no shows or injuries later in the season. Playing bench options has been very helpful in the last 2-3GWs.

                      Foden/Torres and Saka are the current options I have in mind for that spot

                      1. Crunchie
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        6 days, 22 hours ago

                        Saka is the safest but the lowest ceiling, but you know that, but fixtures are good.

                        If Foden didn't play twice in the IB, I would have said him.

                        Still, think Torres this weekend but who knows after that?

                        1. Tonyawesome69

                          6 days, 22 hours ago

                          Yeah it does slightly put me off Foden. Already played 2x90 and it'll be his 3rd game in 7 days if he does start.

                          Even though Saka has the lowest ceiling out the 3, the ceiling isn't that low is it?

                    Because you have Mbueno you could do Toney > Armstrong and get Son. If you're short the 0.1, Dias over Cancelo works.

                      6 days, 22 hours ago

                      That is an option I've looked at. I would have to do Rudiger to James and Toney to Armstrong to afford Son. The issue is I'm not convinced with Southampton and their attackers creating chances for Armstrong even though they have decent fixtures. What's your thought's on Armstrong?

                  0.2 away from Livramento -> Cucurella 🙁 he's gonna haul his nuts off soon

                    Duffy cheaper.

                  Im on McCarthy and Ramsdale at the moment. Cheap combo and perfect rotation if you are into that sort of thing.

                  Hardly anything seperating Saka and ESR in the xA, xG, xGI, all very very close, only thing that isn’t close is the price. 1M difference nearly. Anything else to consider between the two?

                    6 days, 22 hours ago

                    Saka is more nailed on. Expect ESR to drop out first for Pepe if his form dips at all. Saka is also particularly good at home and we have 3 of the next 4 at home.

                    Both are decent options though at their price - I'm currently on Saka in my WC.

                      I think Saka has more touches in the box compared to ESR.

                    Probably not. Contemplating KDB but a bit early for him to carry the burden.

                  Looking at James or Chilwell on my WC - feels like both are first choice, Chilwell has the bigger upside and James is more nailed. Which would you choose and why? Ps don't say Rudiger - I want one of those flying wingbacks! 🙂

                    James, the only 90 mins he got, he got 18 points 🙂

                    To be honest both are at threat of azpi and Alonso. But to answer your question I would go chilwell

                  3. Amartey Partey
                    • 2 Years
                    6 days, 22 hours ago

                    I'd probably go Chilwell, but it wouldn't surprise me if Alonso starts this weekend as I just sold him for Cancelo.

                    If Tuchel wants to get the best out of Lukaku then he has to play James at RWB. Chilwell and Alonso rotation will be constant throughout the season

                  Benching dilemma here would appreciate any help please. Who would u bench for the others to play

                  A - Benrahma vs everton (also own antonio)
                  B sarr vs liverpool
                  C shaw vs lei

                  My current thinking is B on the bench but not sure it's the right move.

                  Choose one on a WC
                  A) KDB
                  B) Son

                    How long do you plan to hold them? I like KDB more right now, but Son more long term because of the cheaper price.

                    KDB punt.

                    Son

                      Actually KDB then downgrade to Son GW12

                        At the moment I’ve got Son and Dias and planning to upgrade Dias to TAA when fully fit. If I bring in KDB it’ll be harder to bring in TAA

                          TAA is fine according to Klopp. Don't see why you wouldn't bring him in now on your WC. Saves wasting a defender transfer later

                    Really dont get the Son hype. KDB all day.

                  If all goes to plan I'm going to have the luxury of an FT that could be used on my 4.0m backup keeper next GW. Would you rather have Steel to cover a Sanchez no show, or Foster (assuming he remains the first choice) to occasionally rotate with Sanchez. I'm thinking GW10 when Brighton have liv and Watford host SOU.

                  A) Sanchez and Steel

                  or

                  B) Sanchez and Foster

                    B. Also has scope for bench boost.

                  My team ATM. 1FT 0.1 itb. It was a GW7 wildcard

                  Ramsdale (Foster)
                  Rudiger, Azpi, Cancelo, Dias (Livra)
                  Saka, Gallagher, Raphinha, Salah, Benrahma
                  Lukaku, Antonio, Jiminez.

                  A) TAA and Benrahma from Rudiger and Brownhill (may need that 0.2m) -4
                  B) Hold

                  I feel a TAA haul coming in, despite no Allison, as Watford scored in one away fixture against Norwich.

                  I will be getting Toney for Jiminez next week if I do A or B, and maybe Son later

                  My team is a bit mucked up, but don't mind a couple of -4's in the next 3 weeks because of the gains made last week.

                    I'm not sure TAA is worth a hit this GW.

                    Go with your gut. But not sure on a -4 to lose a Chelsea defender

                  Kaku+Semedo -> Werner+TAA?

                    I am going to the Gallagher/Toney combo next week, so I have to say that.

                    They'll get the same points regardless of you having both, one or none.

                  Best options to fill the gaps?

                  A) Armstrong & Douglas Luiz (bench fodder)
                  B) Hwang & Gallagher
                  C) Other? Would love Antonio/Jimi but can’t fit them all in

                    Currently I have VVD, TAA, Rudiger, Alonso in defence.
                    Is it worth doing VVD to Cancelo or save FT?

                      Is Raph is out, reckon Torres is worth a 1-2 week punt?
                      On WC but just a little put off by ‘booking a tf’
