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

    Rudiger or Chilwell?
    Need to replace Shaw who has been stinking up my team for weeks!

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Rudiger. Boring pick but more nailed on than Chilwell.

    2. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Personally pretty sure Chilwell starts Norwich game as a chelsea fan

      He was taken off on the hour v Malmo

      1. AC Yew
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I hope so! Thanks

    3. citizenkane
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      If you have decent bench cover, Chilwell

      1. AC Yew
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Its not great - Jota, Duffy & Tsimi ..two of those I shall be parting with over the next few weeks.

  2. sully29
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Worth a wildcard?

    Out: Lukaku, Arsmtrong, Barnes, Benrahma, White, ESR, Bachmann

    In: Vardy, Toney, Havertz, Cancelo, Mbeumo, Brownhill, Foster.

    ESR/Bachmann or Brownhill/Foster would be on the bench.

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yes

    2. aapoman
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yes definetly.

    3. tokara
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      i did 10 changes

    4. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Yes

    5. citizenkane

      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yes

    6. Carlton P
      • 5 Years

      Yes

  3. jackruet

    Keeping Ronaldo this week is a bad thing?

    1. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Not ideal.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      He is being abondoned.

    3. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Nope. Underlying numbers still pretty good.

    4. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Sell for Vardy or Kane IMO

    5. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Why? Shaky Pool defence. Chomping at the bit to knock Salah and Pool off their perch.

    6. Old Bull
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I am, but only because I’ve got other fish to fry. There’s always the hope he might get a penalty.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        And Bruno doesn't take it?

  4. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Punt for a few GWs:

    A) Auba (AVL, lei, WAT, liv, NEW)
    B) Jesus (bha, CPA, man, EVE, WHU)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I love Jesus

    2. Shark
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I have gone B. Easy switch to DCL too.

    3. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Both good options. Leaning Auba

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Both makes sense.

      Along with Vardy.

    5. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      B for a punt. A just reeks of blank after blank for me.

  5. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    As a rule I never make early transfers but went Jota > Mbuemo to avoid the price rise 😐

    Ok to bench Rom for this week or is a long term solution a better option at -4? Thoughts appreciated!

    Sanchez

    TAA, Christensen, Coady, Dier

    Salah (c), Foden, Mbeumo, Sarr

    Jimenez (vc), Wood

    Subs: McGovern, Lukaku, Duffy, Mendy

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      You would be better off making use of that almost 12m on your bench IMO.

      1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Cheers. I was thinking Lukaku > Toney after this week with the hope of working Mane in at some point but maybe it's better to go for a Lukaku replacement now...

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Just take the -4.

  6. Edge
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Already made my FT, but don't mind making more due to injuries –

    A) Doucure + Lukaku (bench Alonso) > KDB + Toney (-8)
    B) Alonso + Lukaku > Azpi + Vardy (-8)
    C) Doucure + Lukaku + Alonso > KDB + Toney + Azpi (-12)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      YOLO

    2. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      like B

  7. PompeyUpNorth!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    What to do with this?.1 ITB 1 FT
    Probably just Kaku to Vardy I guess?

    Sanchez (Steele)

    Trent Cancelo Azpi (Livra White)

    Salah Saka Raph Foden (Luiz)

    Kaku Armstrong Antonio

    Cheers!

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I agree

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Thank you. It’s nice to get a bit of reassurance

    2. Solanke
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Your team is identical to mine, except I have ESR for Saka (btw has he recovered?)
      I'm looking at the same transfer this week as well, that is getting Vardy and calling it a day!

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I’m not sure if he’s recovered tbh so will await pressers. Saka to Mbeoumo was my next move if he’s out but may ride it out this week as I have a playing bench anyhow

  8. Rohirrims
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Lukaku and Saka out for a -8 to bring in KdB and Toney?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Let's talk about Kevin

  9. Rbyrne95
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Is Vardy the obvious replacement for Lukaku?...

    I'd like to take out Benrahma too, with Vardy swap I'd have 3.6itb then? debating perhaps going for Son/De Bruyne and cheaper striker.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Vards is so hot right now

      1. tokara
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Have him since GW1, last year made the mistake and i tell myself not to repeat again!

    2. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      I've gone Vardy and Havertz

      1. Rbyrne95
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Reckon Havertz is going to play consistently though or just whilst Rom is away? it is a decent punt shout like, especially with Chelsea's fixtures

    3. Old Bull
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Brentford defence will be a good test for Leicester.

  10. Quan MisTaka
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    This is the week of hits my friends, unless you have 2FT's.

  11. Taegugk Warrior

      1. Taegugk Warrior
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Yup ofc… injury will make easier to decided. This questions is if both fit.Tempted to captain Havert btw

    7. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Havertz to the IB

      Son after the IB

  12. Carlton P
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 7 days ago

    Has anybody got any stats for Havertz when playing as striker?
    Would be massively appreciated
    Thanks

      why aren't you guys talking about cr7?

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        There's a lot of talk

        ...about selling him

    • Babit1967
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Think I’ll just bench Lukaku seeing as how I struggled to pick subs and move him out for Vardy next week who has Arsenal at home

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Sorry, but this makes little sense

        1. Babit1967
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          It’s a -4 and Vardy in now or Sarr comes into the first 11. Just don’t think it’s worth the move yet

      2. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Check Vardys record vs Arsenal

        1. Holmes

          Pretty meh, isn't it?

        2. Babit1967
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Reckon Leicester will punish them next week

    • waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Trying to make my WC a bit more exciting....
      A) Antonio and Son
      B) Mane and Hwang

      1. Carlton P
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        A easily

      2. Carlton P
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        My wc midfield would be
        Salah l Son l havertz l Foden l Mbuemo
        Thinks that’s pretty exciting

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Like it. Would prefer Raph over Havertz. But that would mean Nacho over Vardy....

    • FPLBRAH

      Hello lads, I'm on a -4 hit / 2.4 ITB with the following;

      Sanchez
      TAA Azpi Cancelo
      Salah Raph Gray Mbeumo Sarr
      Antonio Vardy
      Subs: Foster Reguillin Tsimikas Scarlett

      Leave as is or think its worth a WC?

      Cheers!

      1. waltzingmatildas

        Don't think that needs a wc

        Don't WC

      3. tokara

        Leave it

        remove Sarr soon

        Anyone know is Saka is available this weekend?

        1. dshv
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I beought that weak guy on WC and i can’t wait to remove him so hope not to play

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years

          Nobody knows anything...

      • dshv
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Why no love for Kane?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Not many can afford plus he is a Spurs player

          1. GreennRed
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            So is Son 😉

        2. Michael Jordan - call me MJ
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I think there is plenty but not everyone has cash to for a direct switch Lukaku -> Kane so leaning to Vardy who is also a great option

          I have 1.5 in the bank going for a punt on Harry, fixtures open up nicely after these next 3 and I think attacking wise his fixtures are very comparable to Vardy who is admittedly in much better form

        3. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Lots can't afford, or would rather Son. I'm happy owning though and hoping he can score some more whilst ownership is low 🙂

        4. Gandalf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          If he continues to show interest and consistent form then will look to bring him in for gw12

      • tricpic
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Chances of Daka nailing a starting berth with Leicester?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Not sure, he and Iheanacho are both making great claims to start though, but I doubt they'll ever both start as well as Vardy though

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          When Vardy is injured he has a great chance of starting

      • thewhitepele
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Got 1FT 0.5m ITB. Lukaku to Kane is tempting, but as I already have Son is Lukaku --> Vardy a no brainer? What's the situation with R. James?

        Thinking about it - It’s going to be a bit rude not to dabble with Havertz for a few games now

        His chances of starting have just improved exponentially - and it happens to be for NOR, bur, NEW

        Not someone I’d go near normally but the stars have aligned it seems

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          *NOR, new, BUR obvs

          But still - surely ast a couple of goals for him there, maybe even a couple of braces or more

            57 goals in 206 games is okay but mostly in the Bundesliga.

            11 in 56 for Chelsea but only 5 in the Premier League in
            34 appearances. I don't know how many substitute appearances there but it's not scintillating.

            If he plays 3 upfront it could be a good move.

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              I wonder how that record would look if the 206 games had all been against Norwich, Burnley & Newcastle though lol

                • 6 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                A little bit better. But he'd have to play a hundred years or meet them in the cup regularly!

            2. Fulchester's New Centr…

              11G, 2A in 23 games as a CF over his career. Pretty decent.

        2. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Think he's worth a punt if you can bring him in, wish I could myself. He's shown that he's a class player and should it upon himself to use the extra minutes to show that he shouldn't be left on the bench in the future.

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            His next 3 fixtures go perfectly up to the international break too

            Then a possible move to Son who has LEE, bur, BRE, NOR after the IB

              Why will he die more than lukaku?

          For 3 games it's not a lot to invest but they just don't create enough goals (at the moment) to warrant inclusion. Think some people are being blinded by the fixtures
          Maybe if James and Mount start there's a chance for more goals but personally, I can't wait to have zero Chelsea players in a few weeks

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 7 days ago

            How many goals do they create against Norwich, Newcastle & Burnley though? They did score 3 against Southampton… 3 against Spurs… 3 against Villa… 2 against Arsenal… 3 against palace… 4 last night…

            They don’t need to score 17 against Norwich like, just 2 or 3

            1. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Fair enough. Would it surprise me if the defenders scored again (like Chilwell lately) or Jorginho penalty…probably not

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 7 days ago

                Yup there’s never any guarantees - but on paper the logic is there

                As in - it looks like Chelsea should (probably) score goals with those 3 games, and looks like Kaku & Werner’s injuries should (probably) have Havertz starting, and he’s (probably) good enough to score against that type of opposition

                Probably is really all here is in this game, beyond that it’s in the lap of the gods, there’s very rarely a “definitely”

                But the escape route to Son directly after the IB is also very interesting

                  • 11 Years

                  Makes even more sense with an escape route!
                  I went Kane and Raphinha via Jota

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years

          Neither. Antonio, Ings, Jimenez, Toney for less.

          15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
          “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
          Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
          16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
          He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
          Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
          17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
          Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
          Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.
          18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”
          19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”

        Still not sold on Raphinha but got him in for Doucoure as he is Leeds best player and no other midfield assets besides those I already had were drawing my attention.

        Other than that, quite happy with what I have put together here 🙂

                I think that is as good a MF as you can have at the minute, especially for 3-5-2

              I had a play around with that mid and was about a mil short of:

              Raya, 4.0
              Trent, Cancelo, Christensen, Duffy, Livra
              Salah, Son, Havertz, Raph, Mbeumo
              Vardy, Antiono, 4.4

              My tv is crap tho, so I'm sure someone could afford that.

                Yeah same, about a mil off. Really not sure on Havertz so I'd probably look to downgrade there
