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.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-expanding website, and our own Premium Members Area.

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.

    Just watched the highlights of the Chelsea vs Brentford game and I can't believe Chelsea got away with a cleansheet. Even lost count of how many times Brentford hit the post and how many saves Mendy made!!

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Mendy was incredible. The bicycle kick save right at the end. Was very lucky as a Christensen owner today!

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      The signs are there that Chelsea could implode. Apparently they were hanging on for dear life towards the end of the match.

      Tuchel seems to be his worst enemy. Lukaku does not fit in his setup.

      I am avoiding CHE assets even for easier fixtures.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        They're literally top of the league.

    3. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Chelsea are not that great defensively looking at stats, but Mendy has been exceptional this season.

  2. Puntillimon

    Worth going jota to raphinha early?

    1. G-Whizz
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years

      With CL/Europa League etc. games this week I'm waiting until the very latest to do any moves...

  3. HD7
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Vardy increasing in price tonight?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Touch and go.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Tomorrow most likely

  4. Stupendous
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Son Vardy Kdb Salah Mane

    All better options than Lukaku Ron right now.

    Right? Form says so.

    I spent weeks getting Rom and Ron in

    1. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Not complaining though!!

      Flying!

      1. RedRo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Ok

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Do not know so much about KDB. He is to expensive considering Pep roulette.

      The other 4 are in top dollar form and you cannot go wrong with owning them.

      Ronaldo and Lukaku are not justifying their pricetags. Simple as that.

      1. Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Fair assessment indeed!

    3. syke63
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      There shouldn't be a better option of a striker playing Norwich at home next week but agree Lukaku needs to earn some trust.

      1. Stupendous
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Not a chance on Earth I sell him this week but he's on the chopping block.

        Might even captain Salah over Lukaku

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Sigh we made our bed.

      Lukaku gets these next 3 games. And I will have no regrets considering how easy these fixtures are.

  5. Son available to play?
    hueycho
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Apparently Son tested NEGATIVE from his second test and is availablen for Newcastle!! Yay!!

    1. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Red card incoming

      It is Son after all!

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        In true Son fashion that's next GW after everyone bandwagons him in after his hattrick vs. Newcastle 😀

    2. G-Whizz
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      When did he take the 2nd test?

        1. G-Whizz
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          Thanks Foo but that doesn't confirm for me that he's taken a second test yet?

            1. G-Whizz
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              Thanks, appreciate you replying 🙂

    3. Amsterhammer

      Ha ha, some times you just have to suck it up and laugh. Otherwise you'd go mad.

  6. Kiwivillan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Held off on WC last week with plan to use this week. Any reason I shouldn't pull it now and cover some possible rises I'll probably get in anyway?

  7. SKENG
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Early thoughts on this please? 1 FT, 0.3 ITB

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo Azpi
    Salah Foden Raphinha Harrison
    Lukaku Jimenez Antonio

    Foster Livramento Brownhill Williams

    A) Harrison > Mbeumo
    B) Save FT (and possibly play Livramento over Harrison)
    C) something else?

    1. syke63
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Nice team. A) looks good but Mbueno could go up tonight.

      1. SKENG
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Thanks, I'm also thinking A) at the moment. Decided to ignore price changes and wait for mid-week games though.

  8. steven8991
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Maupay >

    A. Firmino (should do it now before price rise)
    B. Werner
    C. Jesus
    D, Other cheaper forwards

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Firmino is an interesting pick bit rotation between him and Jota will happen.

      Werner is a transfer out waiting to happen.

      Jesus is a decent shout but would rather have the likes of Antonio, DCL, Jimenez or Bamford etc who are all nailed on and you will have £ to spare.

    2. SKENG
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      C) out of those. But I would consider Toney or Jimenez if you don't have them and invest the extra.

    3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Think salah would be enough or until liverpool fixture looking good

      1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I would pick Jesus btw

  9. Futureform
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Ronaldo is probably going to drop in price tonight and I have him.

    BUT how can I tell if I will lose value on him or not before the drop happens?

    I'll probably transfer him out this week but I'd rather wait if I'm not losing value.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      What price did you buy him at? You can see this in list view Transfer page

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 13 days ago

        12.5 is what it says.

    2. syke63
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Unless you bought him at 12.6 you can afford one price drop.

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Ah right. Thats really helpful. Thanks.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Transfers tab > List view
      SP column = selling price, if it says 12.5m, you don't lose anything if he drops once, if it says 12.6m you would lose 0.1m

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Ah brill. That's really useful to know about that. Thank you!

    4. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      What difference can a price drop make? There's three Euro club competitions before next deadline. Decide after then what to do with him.

  10. Ronnies
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Best option;

    A) Salah (c) - United away

    B) Ronaldo > Lukaku (c)

    Cheers.

    1. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Incredible to say it but Salah

      Perma captain right now

      United Def rubbish even when not injury hampered.

      1. No Need
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Not just the defenders as the other 6 are not even competing and so they just get overrun

    2. SKENG
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      How do you play the game? Fixtures vs form. I'm always playing the fixtures, think it pays off over a season, so I'm going Lukaku.

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Depends on the player, the form and the fixtures.

    3. FPL_Crisis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Have to make this decision post CL

      Lukaku- it’s at home, it’s Norwich, it depends if the likes of Mount and James start

      Salah- he’s a beast, no Varane, pool have scored 3+ in each away game so far this season, they get an extra days rest compared to Chelsea post CL

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Not decided yet, but really leaning A. In the last 3 (AVL, EVE, LEI), MUN 2nd worst in the league for xG conceded, 4th worst for shots in box, 2nd worst for shots on target conceded etc. If Salah hauled vs. Man City, why not vs. Utd? Just Ole somehow manages to pick it up vs. the big teams...

  11. FPL_Crisis
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Assuming no wc left, if Lukaku blanks (or even doesn’t play) vs Norwich would you sell him after that even though fixtures short term are good?
    Will be heavily backed this coming week vs Norwich, maybe James & Mount need to start for this to be a good result

    1. FFSbet.com
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 13 days ago

      Keeping till GW12 switch to Kane

      1. FPL_Crisis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 13 days ago

        Seems like a good plan on paper but will be frustrating if he blanks yet again

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 13 days ago

          Depends who you get for him. 5/7 blanks.

          1. FPL_Crisis
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 13 days ago

            Was going to look at Son and go Vardy or even cheaper, otherwise Kane an option IF they show some kind of heartbeat

            1. GreennRed
              • 10 Years
              8 months, 13 days ago

              Kane's not an option unless he plays up top and stops meandering into midfield. Son and maybe Ings/Jimenez/Toney/DCL up front maybe. Sit tight until Euro midweek are over anyways.

  12. Murder on Zidane's Flo…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 13 days ago

    Wow, just watched extended highlights of Brentford-Chelsea. Chelsea seriously hanging on at thre end there. As a Toney owner didn't enjoy the wider positions he was taking up in the channels but they should score a few in the short-term fixtures ahead

  13. steven8991

    8 months, 13 days ago

    1FT 2.2ITB

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    TAA Cancelo James Livramento (Duffy)
    Salah Foden Raphinha (Brownhill Luiz)
    Lukaku Antonio Maupay

    A. Save FT
    B. Duffy > Chilwel/Rudiger
    C. Foden > Son
    D. Maupay > Jesus/Toney

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Looks good to save. See if James plays in the CL midweek.

  14. FOO FIGHTER

    GW9 team

    Raya
    Trent Cancelo Matip
    Gray Son (S)alah Doucoure
    Antonio Vardy DCL

    Foster Livra Højbjerg Duffy

    Only drawback is Vardy vs Raya but other than that rest of the team has some nice fixtures.

    1. Pavsboot

      Yeah looks great. Double Everton against that Watford team is looking tasty.

        Thanks Ragabolly

        The price predictor sites:

        FPLstats had Cancelo, Mendy, Livramento and Mbeumo to rise
        FFFix had Livramento, Mendy, Cancelo, Jansson and Walker to rise - spot on

          The people who bought him before the deadline yesterday didn't know he was about to be dropped.

        Walker & Cancelo to start midweek, Walker then nailed on to start in the PL next game week and Cancelo to get a rest 🙂

        1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          One rest in 6,7 games is quite good actually for City player

            8 months, 12 days ago

            it sure is and I own him now so need to stick with him … Livra and White to come in so no big problem

    • Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years

      I have two FT and doesnt have big issue. Think gonna ditch Sa. Which one is better
      A) Mendy(have James btw)
      B) Raya

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Mendy

          • 10 Years

          Cheers. Thought brentford fixtures looking good and could save some money

            • 13 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Raya is a good option for sure, some Chelsea defense would be good for next few.

            1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
              • 10 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              Yeah. Really hope there would be most nailed che defence, wrong pick of James. Seems azpi and rudiger among the nailed one

          2. GreennRed
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Depends how you invest the money. Mendy over Raya.

      Hopefully this is the season I work on my team each GW right to the end.

      I started playing FPL 2011/21, not missed one season since then but each season I would log out either just before January or little after due to getting occupied with the kids, job I had, my other half = everyday life.

      Opened my own business recently and been up and down, have not been trading for the last six weeks as I had to find a new premisis which happened this week so hopefully things work out for the better and will once again be very occupied.

      Just need a reminder to log in before deadline every week to see if there are any issues with the team but really going to try this time round to follow through to the end lol.

      1. FOO FIGHTER

        You seem to have your priorities right which is what matters. Good luck with your business and don't worry much about FPL

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years

          Actually enjoy FPL but yes, my business comes 1st.

      3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Actually spend 1,2 hour for fpl before deadline is quite enough and you dont have to think its all the week

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Yeah, good plan.

        Couple hours at the end of the week works ; its really not worth any more of your time other than banter on here for fun! I’m pretty much tuned out of this year for the first time in a long time ; its just a mishmash of mid priced templates thus far and can’t get enthused past the Ronaldo/Lukaku fails. Might -12 this week and just leave it alone.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          I took a -12 this week and not planning on changing anything soon. I did however do Bissouma > Højbjerg for free today. Have a pretty solid cheap bench now including Duffy and Livramento to deal with any issues.

          So I will just have to keep tabs now and roll with the team I have.

          1. Bushwhacker
            • 2 Years

          Maybe set a reminder on your mobile an hour or two before each deadline for the rest of the season.

        Can’t decide if I want Toney or Vardy for Ronnie. Already have Luka and Antonio. Which one?

        1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          From Vardy pattern statistic of goal, he would snuck 20 goal this season. Thats one funny reason im choose him for my wildcard in gw 5

        2. Echoes
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Bring in Toney for fake Ronaldo, and then Lukaku to Vardy/Kane when fixtures turn.

          I'm going toney. Could be a mistake to ignore vardy but I want that cash to upgrade elsewhere

      7. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Best option to complete the mids? Budget 9.5m

        Salah XXXX Sarr doucoure gallagher
        Lukaku Antonio Scarlett

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          There’s no one worth that much ; be better with a solid pick and upgrading Scarlett to a player.

          1. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Yea maybe raphina and upgrade Scarlett to Toney. Cheers

            1. waltzingmatildas
              • 11 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              Yeah raphinha

          2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
            • 10 Years

            This. More value in foward for now.

        2. PartyTime
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Raphinha

          • FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Downgrade Gallagher to get Son.

          • Hotdogs for Tea
            • 6 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Raphinha … but I would shift Sarr and Scarlett too

        3. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years

          On wc. Which do you prefer? Both mids are 8th attackers
          A) mendy and D.luiz
          B) Sanchez and saka/Gallagher

          1. PartyTime
              8 months, 12 days ago

              A

            Antonio and ASM

            TO

            Vardy and Davis?

            1. Kiwivillan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              No way

            2. FOO FIGHTER
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              I would rather get rid of Lukaku to Vardy if you have Lukaku.

            3. Kiwivillan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              Brentford isn't a pushover then neither will Arsenal Leeds Chelsea be probably. Antonio could easily match or outscore Vardy every week and Davis will never play or make $$$

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 12 days ago

                He can keep Antonio and ASM if does have Lukaku > Vardy. Plus he will have cash to invest in the rest of his team.

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 2 Years
                  8 months, 12 days ago

                  Have to keep Kaku for Norwich though

          3. PartyTime

              If Lukaku blanks against Norwich it would be hilarious tbh

                  Trying to decide whether to TC him or not. If Tuchel sticks with this shoehorn Werner side ; not a chance.
