Rudiger injury news as Lukaku blanks again and Chilwell returns to FPL favour

We continue our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 8 write-ups with analysis of Brentford v Chelsea.

For a shorter summary of all of Saturday’s action, click here, while you can read up on Sunday’s two Premier League fixtuers here and here.

BRENTFORD 0-1 CHELSEA

  • Goal: Ben Chilwell (£5.7m)
  • Assist: None
  • Bonus: Chilwell x3, Malang Sarr (£4.9m) x2, Edouard Mendy (£6.1m) x1

RUDIGER INJURY NEWS

Mendy injury latest as Chelsea defence impresses again 1

Antonio Rudiger‘s (£5.8m) 100% starting record came to an end against Brentford at the weekend, with the German missing out as expected with a back problem.

As if to underscore Chelsea’s dearth of options on the left-hand side of central defence, Thomas Tuchel handed youngster Malang Sarr (£4.9m) a Premier League debut in the 1-0 win over the Bees.

Sarr and fellow rookie Trevoh Chalobah (£4.8m) largely did well at the back but the second-half defending was very much of a panicky nature, with the Blues owing their clean sheet in the most part to Edouard Mendy (£6.1m).

The absence of experience in the form of Rudiger and Thiago Silva (£5.5m) was sorely missed towards full-time but both players returned to training on Monday, with the veteran Brazilian having also sat out Gameweek 8 thanks to his involvement with his national side in the early hours of Friday morning.

We’ll get an update on the two seasoned stoppers from Thomas Tuchel on Tuesday ahead of Chelsea’s midweek Champions League clash with Malmo.

CHILWELL BACK IN DEMAND

The Rudiger injury latest as Lukaku's FPL appeal 2

Chelsea defenders are going in and out of fashion quicker than Watford managers at present.

Take the last month: Marcos Alonso (£5.9m) was the most-bought Chelsea defender of Gameweek 6, with Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.1m) topping the popularity stakes in Gameweeks 7 and 8 respectively.

Now it’s Ben Chilwell’s (£5.7m) turn in the spotlight after his 15-point haul on Saturday, a return that has led to over 130,000 new Fantasy managers acquiring his services at the time of writing.

He does appear to be the pick of the Chelsea full-backs on paper, given that he’s seemingly much less likely than Reece James (£5.5m) to be brought on for a ‘one-pointer’ and that he averages more points per match (6.30) than any of the Chelsea rearguard under Thomas Tuchel.

It’s dangerous to think he’s ‘nailed’, however: one look at his playing record last season under his current boss highlights the week-to-week uncertainty.

But for those FPL managers with deep benches and willing to take the risk, Chilwell is at least over his early-season malaise.

“I am very happy but it was necessary [to leave him out of the team at the beginning of the season]. We need everybody and a player like him in top shape but you can’t force things. I was honest with you guys, I felt he was tired and a bit mentally drained so it took time.

“He got his chance against Southampton and he took it. He was able to score and play for England which gave him more confidence and today again he was strong.

“He’s in good shape but we need him in this shape because we have many games in many competitions to play. I’m happy and it was a decisive goal that will give him confidence.” – Thomas Tuchel on Ben Chilwell

LUKAKU BLANKS AGAIN

The Rudiger injury latest as Lukaku's FPL appeal 4

It’s now four straight blanks for Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m), whose latest underwhelming display culminated in a second-half substitution.

Despite facing a home match against bottom-of-the-table Norwich next, Lukaku – who wouldn’t be the first forward to toil under Tuchel – is suffering a net loss in owners ahead of Gameweek 9.

It’s now just one big chance and one effort on target for the big Belgian in the last four Gameweeks and while the majority of us won’t be selling him ahead of the visit of Daniel Farke’s troops, it has left us pondering whether the Gameweek 9 captaincy debate is as cut and dried as it seems.

Tuchel will at least be more attacking when facing the Canaries than he was against Brentford, with the combative 3-5-2 set-up in west London leaving Lukaku and Timo Werner (£8.6m) cut adrift from the midfield battleground.

“I felt him a bit tired today. Altogether we did a very strong 60 to 75 minutes, including Romelu and Timo. I am not concerned as I felt him a bit tired and then isolated because we were defending as a block too deep.

“Both of them, Timo and Romelu, were too far away to help us and escape the pressure. That was the problem today. But I have no concerns.

“Normally, the best thing is he scores but he is very unselfish at the moment, looking for Timo in good situations, and when we had him in the situation it was a close offside decision.” – Thomas Tuchel on Romelu Lukaku

BRENTFORD’S FAVOURABLE FIXTURES

Brentford have gone toe to toe with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham United this season and now we get a chance to see what they are capable of against the lesser lights of the division, particularly from Gameweek 10 onwards.

But next weekend’s visit of a Leicester City side who have conceded more goals than all teams bar Leeds, Norwich and Newcastle needn’t instill fear into owners of Ivan Toney (£6.4m) and Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m), even if the return to fitness of Jonny Evans (£5.4m) did make the Foxes’ backline look stronger against Manchester United on Saturday.

Despite sitting near the bottom of our Season Ticker for fixture difficulty over the first eight Gameweeks, Thomas Frank’s side are seventh for expected goals (xG) in 2021/22.

Their tally was boosted by Saturday’s display against the European champions, with Mendy making superb stops to deny Saman Ghoddos (£5.3m), Pontus Jansson (£4.7m) and Christian Norgaard (£5.0m). Norgaard also had an effort hacked off the line and four other efforts from the 83rd minute onwards as he was pushed further forward from his usual midfield anchor role.

The almost comically unlucky Mbeumo hit the woodwork for the fifth and sixth time this season, meanwhile; no other Premier League player has struck the bar or post more than once.

You can read our thoughts on Mbeumo v Toney in an article we wrote ahead of Gameweek 8 here.

Restricting Chelsea to just one shot in the box and mostly nullifying Lukaku, the future also looks bright for Brentford’s defence ahead of their upcoming run of games.


Brentford XI: Raya; Zanka, Jansson, Pinnock; Canós (Ghoddos 72), Onyeka (Forss 66), Nørgaard, Jensen, Henry; Toney, Mbeumo.

Chelsea XI: Mendy; Chalobah, Christensen, Sarr; Azpilicueta, Kanté, Loftus-Cheek, Kovačić (Mount 65), Chilwell; Lukaku (Havertz 77), Werner.

    Sell Salah for KDB as a YOLO move.

    What's the point being 300,000th forever.

    In order to penetrate the top 10k these days you need to take risk.

    Salah owned by 63% of players now, and every good team has him, just gamble on him blanking and have KDB as a differential that can drive you to the top 10k

      So long as you have a few differentials could work out, you know the risks.

      I did Antonio to Werner for this same reason...

      Surely Salah is the last player to take that gamble on! You have 14 other players to be creative with.

    Bench order correct?

    Sa
    Alonso, Cancelo, Rudiger
    Salah, Greenwood, Saka, Gray
    Lukaku, Vardy, Toney,

    4.0, Tierney, Livramento, Sissoko,

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yup - right bench order, strong bench

        All out attack team 🙂

    New plan is to have both Alonso and Chiwell with Livramento on the bench each week

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      *Chilwell

        Interesting!

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Reece James has too great a history of coming off the bench and the LWB position seems to be playing as an auxiliary forward most games

    2. TheBiffas
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 19 days ago

      So you're paying 12 mil for Alonso / Chilwell and Livramento

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yes - but i think the extra spend on a cheaper 4.5 def to have the most attacking Chelsea defender each week may be worth it. Let’s see how it goes for a few weeks.

    3. CRO KLOPP
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Why not just Chillwel/Livra? I think Chillwel play 3/4

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        May eventually move to that but want to guarantee the best Chelsea asset each GW

        1. CRO KLOPP
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          I have Alonso atm,I would need to sell Laporte to do that,I will monitor CL than decide

    4. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      This is a very clever move and one I considered last week.........still bitter I went with James last minute

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        James has such an annoying history of coming off the bench under Tuchel

        1. sovietrockettes
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          I know, what the hell was I thinking

          1. sovietrockettes
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            I made the same error on my WC

    5. mox81
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Like the thinking, not sure I agree with the decision as seems inefficient. You're limiting yourself to a max of 2 playing Chelsea assets each week and asking the rest of your team to be supported by 2 other outfield bench players - would both need to be strong?

  5. MIGHTY JOE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Ramsdale Foster
    Cancelo Rudiger Alonso Livra Duffy
    Salah Ben Doucoure Raph ESR
    Vardy Lukaku Antonio

    2 FT. Thinking Alonso/Ben -> Chilwell/Mbuemo. Would give me 1.0 ITB for future changes.

    Sounds reasonable, or any other pressing matters??

      Arsenal should be too strong but Crystal Palace will be right up for it too.

      Should be a decent game.

        Brighton peppered them with headers and set plays last time so Benteke in makes sense.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Yep. And Palace have a fairly decent record away at the new stadium.

    C) Ronaldo and Gilmour to Toney + Son and create a benching headache.

    No news of Rudi in the article. Wait for tomorrow. Misleading.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years

      Returned to training today not news?

      1. Dammit_182
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yea, you had to read the whole article to get that he is back in training and tomorrow presser should reveal more

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years

          I would have thought the headline suggested there was other stuff in the article beyond Rudiger injury news

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 4 Years

            Also: Rudiger injury news is at the top of the article to eliminate the need to read

          2. Dammit_182
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 19 days ago

            Agreed,

            I was satisfied that there was some Rudiger news and can now sit tightly until later this week to decide if I a) keep him and b) play him and take the 6 points or hope for a bit more elsewhere.

  15. Scholes Out For Summer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 19 days ago

    Which pair would you want to bring in for the next while (5GWs at least)

    a) Vardy + Raphinha
    b) Toney + Son
    c) Toney + Raphinha
    d) Toney + KDB

    only caveat here is that I can't get to Cancelo if I go towards the Vardy option, and KDB is a pure maverick move

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      Easy A

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Cant get to a City defender though... Really want Cancelo or Dias next GW

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 19 days ago

          Bit more than a caveat then. C.

          1. Scholes Out For Summer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 19 days ago

            yeah that was my initial plan but the premiums turning my head slightly ahah

    2. mox81
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      I've got Toney, Son and Raph as see them all as safe long term options. Hoping Vardy roll runs out of steam, really like the KdB pick, may move to either if Lukaku doesn't start delivering...

    3. F4L
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 19 days ago

      B because you won't have to worry about either for a while. Don't like KDB @12, Leeds are struggling without a focal point upfront so Raph's appeal is lessened.

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah going without Raph could be scary at times. Looking at Spurs fixtures, only the Everton is a hard team to score against. United and West Ham are shipping chances

    4. Dammit_182
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 19 days ago

      So if B is ‘Toney, son and Cancello’ that one I guess?

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah also Raphinha is big in my thopughts. Not sure who to go for tbh

  16. camarozz

    Can't afford this..

    A) Digne➡️Cancelo
    B) Sarr➡️Mbeumo

    But can afford
    A) + Ings➡️Toney for free...

  17. Fulchester's New Centr…

        Lol, yeah id love to get rid of Sarr but 0 3 short of Mbeumo move and I think Toney has the fixtures now to get some returns?

          Sarr still their talisman, nearly got something against Liv. Yes, Toney on pens too, and less good at hitting woodwork than Mbeumo

    Got exact cash to do:

    Greenwood + Grealish --> Mbeumo & KdB (-4)

    Worth the hit to mix it up?

      Yeah I’d hit that.

    Evening all!! Rank these in order of who you think scores more this coming game week!!

    A- Greenwood (Liverpool at Home)
    B- Wood (Southampton Away)
    C- Livramento (Burnley at Home)
    D- White (Villa at Home)

    Many thanks!!!!

        Glad you said that mate!! Exactly my initial thoughts!! Have Livramento starting with the other 3 on the bench, have Alonso starting too if he doesn’t come on one of the other 3 will come in!!

      Would say C,D,B,A but see how defensively solid Arsenal look tonight with just one true midfielder, Arteta probably plans to use the same formation against Villa.

        Yeah will be keeping an eye out tonight mate, I see Villa scoring against Arsenal and White has no attacking threat so I think I can bench him this week, Livramento has some attacking threat and better chance of a clean sheet too this week so definitely ahead of white this gameweek

    I've just noticed that TV channels have been added to the FPL fixture list from late November to early January. Those fixtures on Thursday the 30th of December are a pain. It means you can't sign up for a free (or paid) month of prime and get all 20 of Amazon's PL fixtures in it.

      Also had Zaha but him being out means I get 7 points off the bench from Coady.
