The latest news on Lukaku’s ankle injury ahead of FPL Gameweek 9

Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) looks set to miss Gameweek 9 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) after twisting his ankle in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League.

The Belgian limped out of Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Malmo and while an exact timeframe on his recovery is still not known, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed after full-time that his striker would miss “some matches”.

Lukaku was the second most-bought FPL forward of Gameweek 9 before news of his injury broke, sitting in over a third (36.3%) of Fantasy squads in total.

Well over 60% of the top 10,000 FPL managers owned the Belgium international, too.

Lukaku had also been top of our captaincy poll for the upcoming Gameweek, with over half of our voters backing the premium striker with the armband:

We’ve now reset the results of that poll, which you can vote on again in the sidebar of this page.

TUCHEL’S COMMENTS ON LUKAKU’S INJURY AND ROTATION

It was a double-whammy for Chelsea on the injury front, with Timo Werner (£8.6m) succumbing to a hamstring strain shortly before the interval.

Tuchel said of his injured strike duo:

“Romelu twisted his ankle with the foul in the box and Timo has a hamstring injury. It will take a while for both of them. We need more examinations to be more precise but they will be out for some matches.

“If I knew before [the game], I wouldn’t have [started Lukaku]. But how can you know it before and it was necessary that he was on the pitch and he started very strong. I spoke with him about the situation, that I think that he carries a bit of mental fatigue around with him. I think that is also normal but he is our number nine and is our reference upfront.

“The best thing against mental fatigue is a goal and we knew that we could be the dominant team. We knew that we wanted to build our attack today with Mason and Timo around him and him as the reference up front in the middle.

“I had the strong belief that in a Champions League match he could turn things around in terms of scoring and being decisive, which he actually did because he was super strong in our start. He took the foul and without him maybe it’s not 2-0,

“So no, I don’t regret it. It’s not a muscle injury or because of physical fatigue. He is a little bit overplayed, this is my opinion and maybe I’m not even right. This was a moment to give him confidence and let him play. I don’t regret it, things like this can happen. It was bad luck.”

There were also some ominous words on rotation from Tuchel, who named a strong team for a routine win over the Swedes:

“This will be maybe one of the shortest pre-match meetings in my history of coaching because we want everything on the same level. We have the chance to switch on some positions, to demand from everybody physically the same input.”

Ben Chilwell (£5.7m), Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.2m) and Andreas Christensen (£5.1m) started their second successive matches of the week, although the first two of those were handed breathers midway through the second half.

Antonio Rudiger (£5.8m) and Thiago Silva (£5.5m) were both back in the starting XI after missing Gameweek 8 but Reece James (£5.5m) and Marcos Alonso (£5.9m) were again only substitutes.

WHO PLAYS UP FRONT NOW FOR CHELSEA?

On the assumption that Werner and Lukaku do indeed miss Gameweek 9, Chelsea need a new attacking spearhead against the Canaries.

With the likes of Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi gone from the club either on a permanent basis or on loan, the European champions are short of options up top.

Enter Kai Havertz (£8.1m).

The German replaced Lukaku after 24 minutes of Wednesday’s clash, going on to score his side’s third goal with a fine finish having earlier wasted a clearer opening. Havertz racked up four shots in all, the most of anyone on show.

Havertz has occasionally played as false nine in the past and ended 2020/21 mostly being used in that role, although hasn’t had a look-in through the middle since Lukaku joined. He’ll very likely be the man playing centrally on Saturday and at 3.9% owned, is a veritable FPL differential for the visit of the Premier League’s basement club.

“Always, always a chance and it is always necessary to prove a point. We will have some games without Romelu and Timo so everyone is invited to join the race for minutes on the pitch.

“When they are on the pitch, they need to show their hunger and determination to be decisive and be in the box.

“This is how it is and they did it today but there’s still room to improve and on Saturday we need the same performance, hunger and determination from whoever starts for us because we need goals to win matches. We want to find solutions without Romelu and Timo, that’s clear. Everyone will join the race to be decisive for us.” – Thomas Tuchel on Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Do I go Raphinha or Mount?

    Not quite enough to stretch for Havertz. Those fixtures are so good and now that Werner is out, Mount is more nailed as well.

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years

      Raphinha

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I trust Raphinha more to play
      I can't wait to have zero chelsea players in a few weeks

    3. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      With Kante & Jorginho healthy you would think Mount will be free to go forward more.

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Raphinha

    5. FCSB
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Raph, safety of starts

  2. waldo666

    6 months, 27 days ago

    Some thoughts here? I got Armstrong for this run now but then he gets benched, don't really want to get rid but might have to.

    2FT and 0.2 ITB.

    Sanchez
    TAA Rudiger Christensen
    Salah Jota Raphinha Greenwood
    Ronaldo Antonio Armstrong

    (Steele Livramento White Gilmour)

    A) Jota/Greenwood to Everton mid
    B) Gilmour to Allan
    C) A + Armstrong to Toney
    D) A + Gilmour to Mbuemo
    E) Something else

    1. MountainBeach
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Probably C. Maybe Greenwood to Mbuemo and that gives you decent funds for improving Armstrong.

    2. jonnybhoy
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      D

    3. waldo666

      Cheers both.

    4. Tarby
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I'd consider rolling a transfer as you probably don't want Sanchez after this GW as they play City and Liverpool

      Getting rid of Jota/ Greenwood to an Everton mid probably weakens your best 11 and with the rotation risk of Christensen and the potential that Armstrong isn't going to start I'd just consider doing Gilmour to Brownhill if I was you. Think would add another 0.1 ITB for next week and then you'll have more idea on the Southampton attacking choices.

      Then next week you'll have 2FTs which you could use on Sanchez and another player. Personally I want to get Mendy in, I almost did on my WC last week but I was put off by it and regret it! You could move a number of players to get the funds available for it

  3. jonnybhoy

    Sarr to

    A) Raph

    Manani
    • 10 Years

    Luakaku replacement?

    Don't want Ronaldo. Thinking Kane? Or go lower budget and switch to the lower budget and use that to upgrade Sarr/Jota/Benrahm

    1. MountainBeach
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Kane or Vardy for me. Not sure between them.

      1. Flynny
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I have lukaku and adam arnstrong to deal with

        Zero cash so kane out of the equation

        Feels like a simple lukaku to vardy this week

        And Armstrong to toney next week (to double up with mbuemo

      2. Tarby
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I find the double Brentford attack a curious one. Between them so far they've had 4 goals and 2 assists in 8 matches. It's unlikely they get much more than that p/game as the season goes on.

        They both offer good value in their positions, but I think the double-up is crazy.
        Realistically the best scenario is 1 attacking return between them p/game. Will be plenty of games where they nothing between them, or you could hedge your bets and go:

        Toney + Townsend/ Gallagher/ ESR
        or
        Mbeumo + Armstrong/ Edouard/ ASM/ Maupay

        I'm a fan of double defence this season, I almost did GK and 5 defenders all from Liv, MCI, Che to smash it when they get the cleanies!

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Lukaku + Jota > Vardy + Havertz looks really clean to me.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Would you go Kane over Vardy if could ?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          I think I might go Kane over Vardy, yes. And I have the money.

          1. dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            That’s my feeling too- his ownership is also at just over 5% - unbelievable for Kane really

            1. Flynny
              • 7 Years
              6 months, 27 days ago

              I'd prefer kane over vardy- but don't have the cash so forced into vardy I feel

        2. Freshy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Id do Luk to Firmino over Kane

    3. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Vardy, Toney, Kane, Jimenez in that order for me

    4. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Kane!

      1. Bojam
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Kane over Son though? Son clearly better value so far this season and doubt you want both of them for the next few games. Maybe when the fixtures soften.

        So yeah, maybe Kane if the decision is just as a straight Lukaku captain. But Son if it's part of a double move and bring in a cheaper forward.

    5. C-Dawgg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I'm torn between Kane and Vardy, the only thing I can guarantee is whichever one I pick will be the wrong one.

    6. Agent J
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Aubameyang... facing AVL, lei, WAT,NEW in next 5 GW's.
      All are weak defense's this year.
      Only committed to PL.
      Not prone to rotation or rest.
      Differential.

      1. CrouchDown
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Good differential imo

    7. Chemical76
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Small matter of Kane possibly playing tonight. #ankles

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I might be wrong but I don’t think Son or Kane are in the squad for tonight … then again if a cat was to rub up against his ankles he could be out for a month.

        1. Chemical76
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          No, you're correct. Completely different 11 from Newcastle game will play in ECL

    8. CrouchDown
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I think I’ll go with Vardy

      Would you also do Hwang > Toney (-4) with the savings or wait until GW10?

    9. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A week ago, Lukaku a definite captain and all will make hay. This week due to performances by Kane (vs Newcastle by the way) and Salah's 2nd worldlie in as many weeks, the noise for FPL change has been deafening.
      Havertz was at his best when playing down the middle last season. Simple if you want to use 2 tfr's. If you want Kane, unless you have the spare cash it is 2 tfr's with a probable downgrade.. Vardy into the mix with his performances, but, in my view has been a trifle fortunate to get the points he has.
      If it is costing 2 tfr's anyway, 2 playing Chelsea is a must. Vardy or Iheanacho or Daka will cost 1 tfr and will be the boring pick. Kane has yet to prove himself and is 3 weeks too early.
      I will have Vardy, Havertz and Son for a minus 8. If I cannot recover the outlay over the next 6 weeks I will show my bum in Woollies.

      1. Hooky

        Just don't stand next to the pic n mix

      2. Original - Wolves Ay We

        Lucky we don't have a Woolies in the UK. 😀

  5. Wolfman180
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Ronaldo, Gray, Veltman to Vardy, Havertz, Pinnock for a -4?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      No.

      1. Wolfman180
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        What don't you like about it?

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Ronaldo out as part of a hit is probably the main thing and Chelsea mid is just about on par with City as far as nailedness.

          1. Wolfman180
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            I could just keep Veltman, although his price will drop possibly tonight and his place is at risk.

            If Lukaku and Werner are both out then surely Havertz starts upfront, or at the very least starts.
            I wouldn't be making to moves till close to deadline, although maybe if I am to move Veltman I'd likely do that very soonish to beat price drop

    2. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure about Harvertz but the other 2 moves are good

  6. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Lukaku+Bamford+Jota to Kane+Vardy+Havertz for -4?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Like it

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Has potential, not sold on Kane though.

    3. Tarby
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Depends what bench you have for the -4

      Taking hits is always a punt, but Jota could well start on the bench on Sunday and Havertz seems likely to start up front against Chelsea so could be a very good one!

  7. Totti
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo dias azpi rudiger livramento
    Salah raphinha mbeumo townsend douglas luiz
    Jimenez antonio lukaku

    0 FT and 2.3 itb

    A) lukaku to vardy/kane for -4
    B) keep lukaku and play 4/4/2
    C) other suggestion

  8. MountainBeach
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Lads, should I do Lukaku to Kane or Vardy for a hit? Feeling Kane because of the fixtures GW 12 onwards and wanna do other moves next 2 GWs. Vardy obv the more in form player. Thoughts?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Depends who comes on for Lukaku, if you are replacing I would go Vardy over Kane.

  9. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    What do we think the sub ons for Alonso and James mean? Benched again on the weekend?

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I think yes will be benched again
      Can’t change too much in the team with the absence of lukaku and werner
      I think will play on tuesday in the cup

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        So frustrated with those 2 honestly. I expected some rotation, not permanent benching. Might just do alonso to chilwell for a hit and keep James for now

        1. Totti
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          The safest option is rudiger

          1. fish&chips
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            Just can't get excited about rudiger. Would rather bring in Dias if I go for A CB

            1. Tarby
              • 2 Years
              6 months, 27 days ago

              I went in early on Azpilicueta as he tends to always start and is something as RWB. So gives you the consistency plus sometimes a bit more attacking threat as well.

              Having 2 Chelsea full backs is risky! Christensen and James might be cheap double, I'd guess generally at least 1 starts as if James doesn't then Azpilicueta moves to RWB and opens a place a CB. With Livramento could work ok

  10. Steager
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Thoughts on my WC Team Please:

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell
    Mbeumo Raphina Havertz Salah Son
    Hwang Vardy

    Subs Foster Livramento Manquillo Archer

    Can easily do Havertz to Foden after a few weeks.

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Juicy

    2. Tarby
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Mbeumo and Hwang both starting I'm not sure on. Not many options to go to from them either unless have money ITB?

      Son and Vardy - the thing with having both is will you ever captain them? If not then having both is probably detrimental to the overall starting 11. They're both in price brackets with little to no other options around them as well so changing would likely need 2 or 3 transfers and taking a hit probably. I'd pick 1 if was you. Son + Jimenez or Vardy + Foden type options. Or even Jimenez + KDB!

      Livramento could easily be worthy of starting though with the run Southampton have, so I'd downgrade Mbeumo to Brownhill myself then you have lots of options for Hwang like Eduoard/ Maupay/ Toney

      I think the value is in defenders this season so worth at least 4. You could easily shift a few things and get Matip in for Manquillo or even Rudiger really.

      1. Steager
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 26 days ago

        Some good points.

        Foden, I'm not sure will start either. Went for Son because of Guaranteed starts and consistency.

        Jimi, I just don't think is consistent. The striker slot is difficult so I went for Hwang as He's not that much so can rotate with Liv, mbuemo.

        I think it might be worth upgrading Manquillo to Duffy or Brentford defence

        1. Tarby
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 26 days ago

          I think Jimenez is very consistent, he's not exciting is the thing! Usually it's 1 attacking return, but not the big scores like others can offer. With Hwang he could get benched a lot with their options is my concern. His historical scoring record is very poor though, I think we'll find his start is an anomaly.

          I like a lot of your team, just a different approach to mine. The beauty of FPL isn't it, so many different ways to approach it and at different times of the season different approaches will prosper more than others!

          You certainly have a tasty players in that line-up!

  11. Lallana
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Which 3 to bring in for a -4? Got Vardy.

    1. Son, Havertz, Toney (1.4M ITB)
    2. De Bruyne, Mount, Toney (0.3M ITB)
    3. De Bruyne, Havertz, Broja (1.0M ITB)

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Depends who you're losing.

      But I like 2.

  12. grooveymatt65
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    does this sound good?

    Lukaku, Ronaldo and Benrahma to Vardy, Kane and Townsend for -4? (only 0.3 short for Havertz unfortunately)

    1. Totti
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Only lukaku to vardy
      And benrahma to townsend

      keep ronaldo

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Lukaku and Benrahma to Vardy and Townsend for free looks better to me, if possible.

    3. grooveymatt65
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      2 questions gents:

      Who Would you rather have out of:

      A) Azpi
      B) Chillwell

      And

      If you could have TAA over the chelsea duo above, but means you would have no chelsea defence, would you still opt for TAA over them?

      Thanks muchly

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Chilwell.

        And yes, TAA is in.

        1. Salah’s Sonnet
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Cheers Camzy!
          You'd have TAA over both of those at the expense of meaning you'd have no Chelsea defence at all? Interesting...

      2. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        FWIW, rest of defence would be Dias, Cancelo, Tierney, Livramento

      2 FT
      A) Ronaldo to Kane and roll other transfer
      B) Ronaldo and White to Vardy and Cancelo

      Tough one! I really fancy Kane and his low ownership.

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Ohh i am liking B there

      2. Pep's Money Laundry
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Ronaldo to Vardy only

    7. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Gilmour & Ronaldo -> havertz and vardy (-4)

      Yes or no? Still have Alonso and James in defence but TAA, Semedo and livra can play this week if they are benched again

      1. Snake Juice
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Yay

    8. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A. Chilwell + Greenwood
      B. Christensen + Havertz (or Foden)

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

    10. steven8991
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Would you do this for -8
      D.Luiz, Maupay, and Lukaku to Havertz, Toney, and Vardy?

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Yes

    11. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A few hits may be taken this week with people making early transfers to the likes of Vardy & Azpi.
      If I knew Lukaku was only missing this fixture then I would likely roll my transfer but that doesn't seem to be this case, correct?

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Correct

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          cheers.

    12. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A) Lukaku to Kane (FT)
      B) Lukaku+Armstrong to Vardy+Jimenez(-4)

      Thanks.

      1. Snake Juice
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        This is tough; I'd want to get rid of Armstrong too ASAP.

        B for me here.

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Cheers.

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Probably B as there are no certainties to Armstrong's gametime.

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Cheers.

      3. waldo666

        C) Lukaku to Vardy (FT)

    13. NWallis
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      2FT
      Jota > Son
      Ronaldo > Vardy

      looking good?

      1. Snake Juice
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I like these moves

    14. Snake Juice
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A) Lukaku + Saka to Auba (possibly captain) + Havertz (-4)

      B) Lukaku to Kane

      Thanks.

      1. NWallis
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        B by a mile! Although quite fancy the havertz punt!

      2. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        B. I wouldn't trust Auba.

    15. Sturridge Wars
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Thoughts . Which one?

      A)
      Sanchez
      Christensen / Rudiger / Semedo
      KDB / Salah / Son / Raphinha / Gray
      Vardy / Toney

      B)
      Sanchez
      Christensen / Rudiger / Livramento
      KDB / Salah / Son / Raphinha
      Vardy / Toney / ASM

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I like A more here, but no City defence in either? Or TAA?

    16. Areyouthereyet
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Hello lads. For the long run. 1FT (0.3 itb)
      Saar+Benrahma to Raphinha+Mbeumo (-4)

      Worth it?

      1. Avery
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I would for long term

    17. steven8991
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      1FT 2.2ITB

      Ramsdale Foster
      TAA Cancelo James Duffy Livramento
      Salah Foden Raphinha D.Luiz Brownhill
      Lukaku Antonio Maupay

      A. Lukaku > Kane
      B. Lukaku > Vardy
      C. Lukaku > Vardy, D.Luiz > Mount for -4
      D. Lukaku > Vardy, Foden > Son for -4
      E. Lukaku > Vardy, D.Luiz > Havertz, Maupay > Toney for -8

        B

    18. Ray85
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Dias and Kane or TAA and Auba?

      Already have Cancelo too!

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        TAA but unsure on Auba, Vardy instead perhaps if you can stretch that far?

        1. Ray85
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Already have Vardy and Antonio. Looking to transfer to get rid of Lukaku. A move to Auba/Jimmy means I can upgrade to TAA.

          1. waldo666
            • 11 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            I'd go with Jimenez.
