FPL Gameweek 8 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned

You’d have been lucky to avoid at least one of your players suffering a benching in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) on Saturday, with usual suspects Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel joined by plenty of others in throwing teamsheet curveballs aplenty.

Elsewhere on a busy day of FPL, Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) continued his red-hot form, Chelsea and Manchester City kept yet another clean sheet, and bargain-bin options Shane Duffy (£4.4m) and Tino Livramento (£4.2m) reminded us of their worth with solid defensive returns.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 8 fixtures.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

INJURIES AND BANS

It was a fairly quiet day on the injury front, with few fresh concerns reported so far.

Marcelo Bielsa did however confirm after full-time that Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) had missed out through a combination of hip and calf issues, while Junior Firpo (£4.8m) was absent with muscle problems.

Anthony Martial (£7.6m) sat out Manchester United’s defeat to Leicester City with a minor injury picked up while on duty with France but teammate Harry Maguire (£5.4m) made a swift return to playing action – and probably wished he hadn’t.

THE THINGS WE LEARNED

PERMA-CAPTAIN SALAH?

Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) is 27 points clear of any other FPL player after his fifth double-digit haul of the season; he managed just six of those 10+ returns in the whole of 2020/21.

The Egyptian is a remarkable 35 points ahead of where he was at this stage in his record-breaking 2017/18 campaign and is now averaging over 10 points per match this season.

All of Liverpool’s front three were among the points in the 5-0 win over Watford but unfortunately for Diogo Jota‘s (£7.6m) owners, he wasn’t part of that attacking trio. His omission was all the more galling given that Roberto Firmino (£8.8m) scored a hat-trick of goals from point-blank range, central areas where Jota has been getting – and spurning – chances in recent weeks.

EVEN DIAS ISN’T ROTATION-PROOF

Only one ever-present starter remains among Pep Guardiola’s squad following Ederson‘s (£6.0m) anticipated no-show and rather less expected benchings for Jack Grealish (£7.9m) and Ruben Dias (£6.2m) on Saturday.

The rest for Dias was a particular bolt out of the blue as he was the mainstay of the City defence last season: the centre-half was a substitute in only one league match from his Gameweek 4 debut to Gameweek 30 (the point at which Guardiola started focusing on the Champions League and FA Cup, with the domestic title sewn up), and even that was because he had just recovered from illness.

Joao Cancelo (£6.2m) is the last man standing when it comes to bench evasion, having started all eight of the Citizens’ league fixtures in 2021/22.

He has racked up more clean sheets (six) than any other Fantasy asset and now sits top of the FPL defenders’ table on a half-century of points. Not only that but despite his premium price tag, he sits fourth for ‘value’ – a metric typically dominated by budget assets – when points are divided by cost.

RONALDO/LUKAKU ARE TESTING OUR PATIENCE

Three straight blanks for Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m), four consecutive two-pointers for Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m)… how different the Fantasy landscape looks now following the clamour to crowbar both strikers into our teams a month or so ago.

Lukaku huffed and puffed to no avail at Brentford and now has had just six shots in the last four Gameweeks.

Ronaldo’s opportunities have dried up a tad, too, and he hasn’t had a single Opta-defined ‘big chance’ in his last three outings.

Jamie Vardy (£10.5m) has outscored both of them combined now this season, and his strike against United was his fifth in four matches. No forward can better the Leicester veteran for shots or penalty box touches over the last four Gameweeks.

WHY RAPHINHA MISSED OUT

It was always going to be a tough ask for Raphinha (£6.6m) to start after racking up 71 minutes of pitch-time for Brazil on Friday morning and, in the end, the Leeds winger didn’t even make Marcelo Bielsa’s matchday squad, let alone the starting XI.

The Leeds boss said of his star midfielder after full-time:

“Raphinha, we had decided that he was going to fly after his game, without knowing how many minutes he was going to play on the Friday. In the end, he played 70 minutes, flew 15 hours and today at midday he wasn’t in conditions to take on board even a part of the game. Given that he wasn’t in conditions to respond, we didn’t risk because it’s possible in circumstances like this, injuries can occur.”

MBEUMO IS OWED SOME LUCK

Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) blanked in the late kick-off against Chelsea and despite two goals in the last four Gameweeks for the ‘out of position’ midfielder, his luck appears to be right out in 2021/22.

No Premier League player other than the Brentford attacker has hit the woodwork more than once this season – but Mbeumo has been thwarted by the frame of the goal on six occasions, twice on Saturday.

A total of 16 of his 19 shots have been technically off-target but it’s hard to chastise his finishing ability too much when we’re talking millimetres on those half-dozen occasions.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 7

Raul Jimenez (£7.6m) and Adam Armstrong (£6.0m) were among the high-profile names who were on bench-warming duties on Saturday.

While the jet-lagged Mexican’s cause was helped by a limp Wolves attacking display from open play (Bruno Lage’s side scoring three times from set pieces late on), Armstrong’s owners would have been concerned to see Armando Broja (£5.0m) turn in a match-winning display in his stead.

Broja is top for shots in the box in Gameweek 8 so far, while no forward could better his total of 10 penalty area touches.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s rotation policy continues to bemuse but given his price and fine display, the Albania international is an intriguing prospect.

He’s long ceased to be an option for many of us but it’s worth highlighting Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.9m) recent creativity, with his Gameweek-high total of seven chances created taking him to a total of 22 over the last four Gameweeks – that’s 10 more than any other player has managed.

      Aside from Newcastle, Ronaldo has not looked like fitting in at MUN. When you brought James in you had to know rotation was an issue, no? Keep James and move Ronaldo.

          I’d go B but brave. Norwich tightened up and so has Lukaku. But not capping him is a big risk

        Next week will really test my commitment to backing the odds on captaincy decisions. No hunches, no punts, just back the odds and benefit from the statistically more likely outcome occuring more often than it doesnt.

        Haven't checked the odds but I would imagine Lukaku will have a higher percentage chance of a return than Salah but with Salah's form and Lukaku looking like Carlton Palmer and Chelsea's attack looking blunt with these negative team selections, can he be trusted with the armband even against Norwich?

        Of course bookmakers odds will take form into account when setting odds already reflect form etc and no

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          ..... they will still favour Lukaku

        2. Podge
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Bookmakers odds also take into account likely popularity or weight of money so it’s not always stats, just so you know.

          I don't have Lukaku, so I don't have that decision. But I'll be okay with Salah v. Shaw on United's right side and no Varane. If Leicester can light them up for 4, I'm okay taking my chances with Salah (c). But I do understand the dilema.

            How many players do you want to change? How different would your WC team look?

            That should tell you whether you need to press the button.

            1. Atimis
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              Would mainly consider Vardy, Mbeumo and Chilwell, plus Raya as GK, Livra as def fodder

                Your GK and sub DEF aren't going to be worth many points so not worth wildcarding for. That leaves only three moves. You can do that in a week or two with few hits.

              Make a WC draft to see how many changes you'd make and how hard it would be to make those changes with transfers over a few weeks

            Fair play to people who held on to Vardy my biggest regret this season was selling him on WC gw4 to get Ronaldo/Lukaku double up

            If Ronaldo and Lukaku were doing what Vardy is so consistently - people would be saying you pay for what you get. But Vardy does it for 2m and 1m cheaper!!

            Amazing what a bit of perception does - still only 16% owned at time of writing on - on pens, always starts, focal point of his team, no internationals to worry about.

            But apparently the excuses not to have Vardy are a lot stronger than the draw to get Ronaldo/Lukaku. I assume those who only have one of the two are now jumping off Ronaldo for Lukaku in annoyance.

            I was thinking if Man United should of splashed the cash on Vardy at least he would not have been as isolated - as he loves to chase and harry lost causes.

              1 month, 13 days ago

              If Lukaku blanks against Norwich everyone will sell for Vardy. Ronaldo owners have a tricky decision to make this week but the sensible play is to go for Lukaku first as he can punish you more than low-owned Vardy.

                Chelsea not free scoring, no point gettin Lukaku who often seem lost

                  Only takes 1 fixture to change that

              A few weeks ago i looked at going Jota and Bamford to Townsend and Vardy, but saved transfer instead, wish I hadn’t now!! Vardy with 4 goals in that time and Townsend with 2!!

              I didn't fancy Vardy as when i brought him in last season and captained him he blanked for 10 games in a row i think

              Vardy is always a risk. Plays for mediocre team. 10.5 is too much.

                That proves my point perception!
                Leicester just missed out on CL two seasons in a row.
                Can you honestly tell me that there is much difference in standard of squad between Leicester and Man United?
                Leicester are basically a cheaper version of an overpriced Man United IMO

                  Plus since when has playing for a bad (or a good) team ever directly translated to a player’s points

                  Coverage is a myth - players score points, not teams, and Vardy is a player

                    Really annoyed (still) at myself that I got rid of him. Plus he is great to watch in games 100% energy.

                    It is a really curious psychological thing why people are not picking Vardy at all. Fascinating stuff.

              Yep, save. I would probably start Toney over Saka.

                  I think it will be.
                  It’s the most form vs fixture decision there’s been in a long time. Something beautiful about it.

                    Quite right. I need to decide which would annoy me more, Lukaku (c) blanking and Salah going crazy, or Salah (c) blank and Lukaku going crazy.

                Nope. It’s just when they want to do a grand slam Sunday.

                  It would be nice if every so often we had a covid style tv coverage all weekend bonanza. Not every week, maybe when non league has cup games or something like that

                    Yeah, twice a season would be nice. Could be interesting if each club could get a little booster pack to make up for lost ticket sales. Or have it like this:
                    Friday. 7:30
                    Saturday. 12:30 5:30 7:45
                    Sunday. Noon 2:15 4:30 6:45
                    Monday 8.

                In GW7 there was no Monday match, but there were three 2:00 Sunday games and no midday.

                  Yeah it depends on lots of things. Most seasons SKY get around 118 games and BT 38. Then those are divvied up and you get what you get. Theres no formula to it.

                Why? 100% seems harsh, I actually had idea of only doing CR7 to Kaku and maybe something for -4 also. If you remove pool utd derby, all others should play and have decent fixtures.

                TRENT to Chilwell?!

                Why would you sell the best defender in the game?

                1. iL PiStOlErO
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Exactly. Not sure if trolling or he has some different approach but not planning on selling Trent never&ever.

                  Please define best, because awful value for money is not my definition.

                    1 month, 13 days ago

                    He is the best defender in the game by just about every metric, nailed on when fit and costs about the same as a Mason Mount.

                    Anyone who chooses to go without him is shooting themselves in the foot.

                If I told someone to do Trent to Chilwell I’d be banned for trolling

              Ronaldo to Vardy is certain.

              Wondering whether to:
              A) Rudiger to Chilwell
              B) Marcal to Chilwell
              C) Save

              Obviously Rudiger update will impact the decision.

                Hold off on Rudiger news and whether Chilwell starts in UCL this week. If he does I reckon Alonso starts vs Norwich

                  Sounds logical. Thanks.

                  If Chilwell is fit he will start most games, are people discussing this actually watching football? Reason wh Alonso played was because Chilwell was not in his right mind, but once he is and he is now it will be Chilwell who starts because he is ten times better.

                Good moves. If you have any spare cash leftover consider if you can upgrade Marcal as you'll want a decent 1st sub with Chilwell.

              Sanchez

              Rudi Tierney Cancelo

              Lukaku Ronaldo Antonio

              £0.9m. 1FT.

              Ronaldo to Vardy this right move?

              Gives me some cash to upgrade my mids / defence further

                I’m looking at Ronaldo and Semedo to Lukaku and Rudiger(if fit) for a -4?

                This would mean holding onto Alonso and Jota for another week however. How does it look?

                      1 month, 13 days ago

                      Norwich I suppose and the fixtures after. Form not been great, I agree. Vardy might be the better option or dare I say even Jesus?

                        Prefer Vardy and Jesus

                            Allows for Cancelo over Rudiger this.

                        It’s Norwich at home, so I get it fixture wise.

                        But the form isn’t there

                      I’m keeping Lukaku for now.

                      But not sure I’d bring him in

                          Having second thoughts now. Maybe Vardy is the better option

                            Can come in for Lukaku in GW13, if Man U is still out of sorts and crashing by GW12

                        similar position - was going to do Ronaldo to Lukaku but he is in such poor form. 3 goals in 7 games is terrible for a so called world class striker at 11.7 mill

                          Would you ditch Alonso for TAA (-4) or hold and wait and see whether him or Chilwell start on Weds??

                              If Alonso is benched midweek then he is a great pick for Norwich
