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.

      I was watching Vardy against Man United and it was like watching Salah, every time he gets the ball you can hear the crowd getting excited because they think he is going to score.

  3. Randaxus

    8 months, 18 days ago

    I was in-between picking Dunk and Veltman this week 9 point difference actual pain.

    1. Randaxus
      • 1 Year

      Let this be a lesson to everyone that sometimes the 0.7 more is worth it.

        1. Randaxus
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 18 days ago

          Dunk has scored in the last 3 weeks 7/5/9 he is amazing and I am stupid for not picking him, I new I was an idiot and I thought it would bite me, and it did.

        2. Randaxus
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 18 days ago

          2/8/9 I was thinking of veltmans assist lol for the other points.

    How did Hwang look yesterday?

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 18 days ago

      He is always a Sexy chinese man

      1. Cok3y5murf
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        He's South Korean. Bit racist?

        1. Jumpernot
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          That's what I was thinking

          Why racist ? Couldn't be just simple mistake ?

          Saying he looked like your local takeaway guy would be racist but confusing nationality is just lack of knowledge.

          1. Cok3y5murf
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 18 days ago

            He assumed he was Chinese just because he was Asian. Could've just said Asian if he wasn't sure

            1. el polako
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 18 days ago

              Then somebody would call him racist.

              Racism is disgusting no doubt about it but these days people just get labelled as racist over nothing or without any proof for example Kyle Walker and Harry Maguire accused Kamil Glik of being racist - FIFA done their investigation and found no grounds whatsoever for it.

              1. Cok3y5murf
                • 5 Years
                8 months, 18 days ago

                Why would they call him racist for that? He is literally Asian.

                In his defence, he could've genuinely thought he was Chinese through some misinformation, but I doubt it. It seems like he just assumed. But there is no proof and only he knows

            ‘Simple mistake’ is oversimplification. No need to make a joke about ethnicity/nationality in the first place. It’s just that simple.

      Ronaldo was a terrible signing. Taking a strong 'team' and adding a 'me' ego to it. Awful

      1. Jumpernot
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        They already have Pogba with his ego though and they didn't learn their lesson. I don't know why they didn't shift him on and get some money back. Now it looks like he's going to leave for free.... Again

    Any early ideas for this team? Maybe just a safe change of Amartey to Livramento?

    Sánchez
    Cancelo, Alonso, TAA
    Raphinha, Salah, Fernandes, Sarr
    Ings, Antonio, Toney

    Steele, Duffy, Gilmour, Amartey
    2 free transfers, 0.6 million in the bank

    Apart from bruno and greenwood,, the whole utd team is trash. Some of them dont deserve to be in the man utd team. Fred, wan bissaka are terrible. Their attack is slow, sluggish, predictable and boring. Ole out please

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

    2. Jumpernot
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      "don't deserve to be in the man utd team" as if Manchester United are like some power house team known for being great. Maybe not fit for them in the 90s but the fact are United are a mediocre club under the impression they're special and have be under this illusion for quite some time. Liverpool suffered from this for a very long time, now only recently Arsenal woke up and smelt the coffee and realised it was the same for them too. I wonder how long it will take United to do the same.

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Fred is also one of their best players

      2. Echoes

        8 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah, don't understand this sentiment of many united fans that some players "aren't good enough for man u". It's as if United were the first thing that came into being after the dinosaurs went extinct and there's some monarchial crown on their head which will make them a powerhouse no matter how club rankings and scenarios naturally keep changing with the passage of time. Newcastle were historically a big club too, but you don't see people moaning every player bar Wilson and ASM isn't good enough to play for them.

        1. Jumpernot
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          It's so funny isn't it. Like it's never Manchester United that can be bad, just; the players, the staff, the fans the owners, the referee, the pundits, VAR etc etc

          It's against the context of them being literally the most successful club in the history of the English game and having just recently exited a spell of pretty much two decades where they diminated every team in the country

          This isn't Burnley or Rochdale that's being talked about - it's the greatest club in the history of the English game

          Look them up - they were quite good you know

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Utd is chock full of really good players who are not coached properly.

  10. Il Capitano
    • 1 Year

    1FT - 0m ITB - WC available

    Sanchez
    TAA Livra Cancelo
    Salah (C) Jota Sarr Raph
    Ronaldo Antonio ASM

    Steele - White Shaw Gilmour

    Shaw and Ronaldo need to go I guess and I think the mid could use a bit of freshening up.

    Could I get by with just Ronaldo to Lukaku or should I be considering the WC?

  11. lugs
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    with exact funds i just did, Pukki & Williams ----> Broja & Christensen, it looks a bit crazy at first glance swapping 2 crap options for 2 non nailed ones but the 2 non nailed ones are pretty good if they play, and actually gives my team really good flexibility and depth to cover other non nailed and high rotation players that i have which gives me a chance to field a decent 11 in any given week, that makes sense right ? 😆

    next week's team probably

    Sanchez
    Taa, Cancelo, Christensen, Livermento
    Salah, Mount, Gray
    Lukaku, Auba, Broja

    Steele, Greenwood, Tierney, Allan

  12. King Kohli

    A. Dias > Chilwell
    B. Mahrez > Mount/Zaha

    Ramsdale Foster

    Want Chilwell but no cash for straight swap with James.

    So does Son have COVID or not?

      • 2 Years

      Reports from South Korean sources are saying Son tested negative and is clear to play today.

        8 months, 18 days ago

        So what was all that BS about him being positive and missing the next 3 from multiple sources?

        Bloody took him out for Mahrez this week because of it

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          That is twitter for you.

          The same twitter source which tweeted Son had covid posted a tweet afterwards saying he tested negative.

          I looked past this and kept him as Spurs have not even mentioned one thing.

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      London = Yonhap News) Correspondent Choi Yun-jeong = Son Heung-min (29, Tottenham Hotspur) is reported to have tested negative for the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19).

      A local source familiar with the situation told Yonhap News on the 16th (local time), "Tonight, I was contacted by the agent saying, 'Son has tested negative and will play against Newcastle tomorrow (17th)."

        I still wouldn't trust that though. Wait and see if he starts. Agents and some 'journalists' , not always great sources.

    Alonso owner, pending midweek team, bring in for Tsimikas:

    A) James and hope to have a double up for Norwich with Livramento on bench if not

    B) Chilwell and at least guarantee one of the attacking LWBs each game

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      B for the fixture run then ditch one. Perhaps.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah, James has an annoying habit of coming on late in games when benched which the LWBs don’t tend to do.

        Will move on a Chelsea full back after the Malmö game in midweek.

        Cheers TKT

      Vardy - he’s on another goal scoring run again

      1. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Who would you captain between Salah and Vardy if you made this move ?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Salah

      1. Fixtures too good to ignore.

  19. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Mahrez, Antonio to Toney, Son in 2 weeks time almost looks like a no-brainer surely?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      I won't sell Antonio unless his form nosedives.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Liverpool, Brighton, Chelsea and City being 4 of 5 fixtures later on is interesting though, I'm not banking on him to do bad, Toney has great fixture as well and can easily match if not outscore him...

  20. El Matador
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    That Sunday morning felling after

    - Your team getting spanked 4.2
    - Your captain blanks
    - Your defender hasn't played a minute since purchased and now drops in price (Alonso)

    If Alonso plays midweek who would you sell him for? Have Cancelo already.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Sell Alonso for Chilwell if he plays midweek. Chelsea fixtures split for the next few with a midweek cup game that could see the second choice full backs feature and protected for the league.

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Just avoid Chelsea fullbacks. Brightom brentford defence are better value

      You can't go too far wrong with the captain's poll. Won't pay out for you every GW but more often than not.

      1. El Matador
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        I know, just hoped my player would at least match Salah. But should have known better with Mahrez.

  21. Milkman Bruno
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Price changes were bad last night, I lost .4 ffs. Did not want to make early moves.

  22. Hits from the Bong
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    A. Ronaldo and Williams to Vardy and Chilwell (need to make 0.1 for TAA)
    B. Something else

    Sanchez
    Cancelo Rudiger Duffy
    Salah Raphina Benrahma Gray
    Ronaldo Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Livramento McArthur Williams

  23. Powers106
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    I guess the stampede will be Ronaldo to Vardy before a price rise (likely tonight)?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Ronaldo will be relishing Super Sunday v the old enemy and Salah.

  24. Adzy
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Semedo, Ronaldo > TAA, Vardy -4

    Surely its worth the hit?

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Might not pay off this week but long term yes

  25. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    If Lukaku blanks again vs Norwich he’s gone. I don’t care about the rest of his fixtures.

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Why wait? 5/7 blanks.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Because it’s Norwich

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          Norwich are starting to keep clean sheets.

        2. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 18 days ago

          Though not because his form is great and you expect 2 or 3 goals from him against a poor Norwich team. Hopefully he will find the form and the bounce in confidence improves his form. But cheaper alternatives are getting a few goals.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        This

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Yep 100%, blanked in every game for Chelsea since i brought him in four weeks ago and the worst part is he has looked dreadful.

    3. El Matador
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      He is a poacher. Norwich is the perfect fixture for him.

  26. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    If i didn't take that hit last season I would be without hits for around 3 years...

  27. Phlajo
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    How is Bruno+Coufal+Sarr to KdB+Laporte+Mbueno for -4?

    Exact cash so have to pull trigger before prise fall/rise 🙂

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Yep

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Forget price. Wait until Friday evening for any updates on possible injuries etc after midweek games. Looks like good moves but maybe one less.

  28. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Ronaldo >> Vardy? 2FTs. Also need to sort out Mount, Sarr and Shaw!

    Sanchez
    Rüdiger. TAA. White
    Salah. Mount. Raph. Sarr
    Ronaldo. Antonio. ASM
    (Foster, Shaw, Livramento, Gilmour)

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Shaw > Cancelo
      Ronaldo > Vardy

    2. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Same dilemma here, am thinking. Ron + Sarr to Vardy + Foden/mahrez

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      Yes of course. Shaw to a City Def?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        Yeah think so

  29. Dacra
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 18 days ago

    Did Jota + Alonso to Mane + Thiago Silva last night for - 4, rage transfers.

    Have regret.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      But no rage, which is good.

      1. Dacra
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 18 days ago

        That comes when Jota and Alonso start next week, and both their replacements are benched.

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 18 days ago

      never a good idea to to rage transfers but could have done worse moves I guess
