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

    What are people’s thoughts on a Lukaku -> Kane move.

    I know the popular love will be to Vardy but with Kane now back in the goals and them having a very decent run of games coming up is it worth jumping on early?

    1. Bolton’s Wanderers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      *popular move

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Prefer move to Vardy and then look at Kane move from him in 3 weeks

    3. BrockLanders
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I like it,cas you can see below. It's whether it's worth -4

    4. antis0cial
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      It's a good option, a bit risky but he has been scoring in other competitions.

    5. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Feel Son is better value so will be getting Vardy

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Kane has scored A goal. Vardy is the league's top scorer.

  2. BrockLanders

    Bottomed

    Lukaku to Kane -4?

    Yes or no

      Aye why not

      1. BrockLanders

        As per your name! Ha

    2. Bolton’s Wanderers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Not sure I’d do it for a -4 but definitely thinking about it for free

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years

      Prefer vardy and the extra $$$$

    4. puhd
      • 7 Years

      Not too keen.

    5. unclesbasement

      Tottenham have one of the worst xg this season and are ranked 11th in terms of xg in the last 4 games whereas leicester are 3rd. Had Kane in previously and was so frustrating to watch. Vardy's stats are much better than Kanes as well.

  3. Calculated Risks

    How's she looking?

    Ramsdale
    Trent, Azpi, Liv
    Gray, Sarr, Salah (C), Son (VC)
    Vardy, Antonio, Jimi

    Marcal, Gallagher, BWilliams

    It's worth seeing how Antonio gets on tonight before hitting a transfer.

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes … get all the euro games out the way so you know where your at. Then make a call before the price changes tonight

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years

      can't see any benefit of doing it right now.

    Saka/Benrahma + Lukaku to....

    A) Son + Toney (Money itb for Alonso to TAA next week)
    B) Mane + Toney
    C) Mbuemo + Kane
    D) Mbuemo + Vardy (Money itb for Alonso to TAA next week)

    Havertz also on option over Son/Mane

    Ramsdale

    Jimenez Antonio

    Foster Lukaku* Livramento Benrahma

    1. puhd

    Lateriser's forwards after last week's WC: Lukaku, Werner, Maupay...

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Poor luck with both Chelsea forward getting injured

    2. BrockLanders
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Massively unfortunate tbf

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I am guessing Maupay was a one week transfer, this is why those moves are very risky.

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Indeed … but Werner was inexcusable for such a seasoned campaigner

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Think I follow him on twitter, and he's been a big fan of Werner ever since he came to the league. Seems even seasoned campaigners have some bias which clouds their judgement.

    5. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Very bad luck. One way ticket to hitsville please,

    6. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Sure he likes going against the tide. Win some lose some. He's won plenty, fair play. Antonio, Toney, Jimenez here. Who do you have up front?

    7. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      With both Lukaku and Werner's form of blanks errupting like a valcono, coupled with Maupay's fixtures, it was bound to end in disaster.

  7. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Which two Che defs would you be getting on a WC?
    Azpi and Chilwell? Or just Azpi and Rudi?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Azpi and Rudi for me. Chilly too risky

      1. puhd
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        agree

    2. antis0cial
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I'd like to think James forces his way into team, James and Chilwell, risky but high upside with livramento to cover benchings

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      One is enough

    4. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      not on a WC but I can get B Williams to Christensen so I might do that.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        If I was, Azpi and Rudiger, although I like James.

    5. Ranger3
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Im on Wildcard, Azpi and Chilwell

    6. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Consider a Chilwell/Alonso double up and guarantee the best Chelsea asset each GW

    FFS is such a wonderful forum with no (With exception of maybe a couple 🙂 )Trolls, and with such a wonderful plethora of individuals, probably people with amazing jobs, mediocre (boring) people searching for work ( good luck people) and the happily retired but we all come on here regardless of rank for the common goal of interacting with this amazing community for their insight, humour or just in the comfort of people rating and liking their teams.
    So with that in mind, we should organise a huge party and because we all live in various parts of the globe, I believe the most central part of the Earth is Null Island, in the Gulf of Guinea off the West coast of Africa ( although there is conflicting articles on this) so with that in mind, what are your views on this 😀

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Have you ever been to Santiago, Chile?

        No, I haven’t, but I will look it up Miguel…

  9. King Kun Ta
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Lukaku & Benrahma -> Vardy & Havertz for -4?

    Y or N?

    Ta!

    1. puhd
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      yes

    2. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I'm doing these moves, but for Jota instead of Ben

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Does Havertz outscore Benrahma by more than 4 is the question, granted you don't have a hit next week.
      I would take the punt.

      1. King Kun Ta
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I think he will

    4. King Kun Ta

      Thanks for the feedback people!

  10. puhd
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Hows this WC?

    Raya (Foster)
    Cancelo TAA Rudiger (Livramento Manquillo)
    Salah Havertz Raph Foden (Brownhill)
    Vardy Antonio Toney

    Thanks lads

    Considering also:
    Townsend in for Havertz
    Jesus in for Antonio

    1. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I'm also gonna WC and probably want to include Son and get rid of Antonio, also considering Toney and Foden but looking at Jesus too.

  11. JBG
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Lukaku + Mahrez to Kane + Havertz for -4 and bench TAA to play Havertz?

    1. puhd
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Dont bench TAA

      1. JBG
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Who else? Azpi, Walker or Cancelo?

    2. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Never bench TAA against anyone. Find someone else to bench

      1. JBG
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        I suggested 3 other players above.

        1. LC1
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          None of them either lol.
          Who are your mids?

          1. JBG
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Mbuemo, Salah and Raphinha

  12. Fadi AMJK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Wildacard played last week (unfortunately a Blunder!)

    Vardy and Havertz instead of Lukaku and Saka for a hit?
    With Toney instead of Armstrong next week (I have the exact budget as prices stand currently)

    I was originally considering Mbeumo instead of Saka from Brentford for his goal threat and budget price which would allow upgrading Foden to Son in Gameweek 12 but the Injury to Lukaku and Werner necessitate Havertz as a route to Chelsea attack ahead of facing the Bottom 3.

    1. Fadi AMJK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      My team currently:
      Ramsdale, Foster
      TAA, Cancelo. James, Livra, Duffy
      Salah, Raphinha, Foden, Saka*, Luiz
      Lukaku, Armstrong*, Antonio

      1.1 ITB

      I would still be able to bring Son in for Gameweek 12 by Downgrading Havertz to Gallagher if the above Transfers are carried out.

      1. JPSpurs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        If I could for -4, I 100% would (after tonight’s fixtures)

  13. MikeNash404
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Chances of Reece James starting this week?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      High

    2. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Tuchel could play Azpi at RWB and Chalobah at CB like last week

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Think that's very possible, although it's been difficult to call a Chelsea lineup of late.

        May well see what you've described, with another James cameo later on.

        EFL Cup after Norwich, and I do expect James to start that one at RWB.

      Hi Legends, need some advice here:

      WC gtg ?

      Raya
      Cancelo - Christensen - TAA
      Salah(c) - Son(v) - Mbeumo - Raph
      Toney - Vardy - Antonio

      Foster- White - Livramento - Brownhill

      1. We Go Again
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        See what happens tonight but I'm not sure I'd keep Antonio on WC

    6. unclesbasement
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Should I bring in vardy for lukaku for a -4 hit. Was planning on doing one in gw11 but this injury and affected that

        A lot of people have been repeatedly asking this question. Repeatedly on every page.

        1. unclesbasement
          • 1 Year

          Sorry mr.knight...may you repeatedly give me the answer

          1. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Yes is mine answer.

    7. JBG
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I understand you don't bench TAA.... But I don't see them keeping a CS vs MU, he may get an assist on set-piece(cause MU suck at defending them), but still don't expect much from him this GW.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 8 Years

        Then you sell and use the money elsewhere to maximise your points.

    8. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Everyone's bringing in Vardy, Kane, no one interested in De Bruyne and Mane?

      1. PartyTime
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Kdb, Son & Vardy for me

          1. Sgt Frank Drebin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            No Salah?

            1. PartyTime
                6 months, 28 days ago

                Mo Salah

              • PartyTime
                  6 months, 28 days ago

                  So all 4. In love with my team tbh

            2. Cok3y5murf
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 28 days ago

              KDB still doesn't look to be at his best.

              Mane has done well but not well enough for 12m. Fewer points than Son and Vardy, so if he was a similar price to them, then we're talking

              1. The Knights Template
                • 8 Years
                6 months, 28 days ago

                He’s looking good enough for me.

              2. Sgt Frank Drebin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                6 months, 28 days ago

                KDB has only played 3 games in PL, 2 of which were against Liverpool and Chelsea. I think he will come good. Vardy had an excellent run but imho he can't keep this up in a long term. Pretty sure Mane will outscore him at the end of the season. Son is also a great option, but with so many value options we're gonna be left with considerable amount of money in the bank, at this point we can just go with the one that will get us the most points, irrelevant of his value (and I think Mane is not that good value for money). I rate KDB and Mane slightly higher than Son and higher than Vardy in terms of ppg.

                  End of the season is irrelevant. You're not buying Mane or Vardy to just keep them till the end of the season.

                    It is relevant imho, because it helps you ignore the latest results and not draw conclusions from small samples. It depends on fixtures, so if Vardy had much better fixtures than Mane I would rather go Vardy in a short term, but generally Mane > Vardy all day long.

              requires an extra transfer and for many a hit/extra hit.

              Anyone fancy a cheeky differential captain or should we just slap it on Salah?

                Not going for Salah, thats for sure.

                    By context Loftus-Cheek is the most cheeky differential I believe

                  Havertz (if I have the balls to do it)

                  1. PartyTime
                      6 months, 28 days ago

                      Could pay off. Will most likely just go with Salah. Utd can’t stop him

                    Captaincy decision will go down to the wire this week. But 100% won't be Salah

                        Bold as Salah’s EO would be high but so many interesting differentials tbf

                    Gray on the captains poll, but Aubameyang isn't.....

                    Easy: Lukaku to Kane
                    Fun: Lukaku + Benrahma to Auba + Havertz

                    Best Lukaku replacement:

                    A: Vardy
                    B: Auba
                    C: Ings and upgrade ESR to Havertz

                    GW8 was a good week for hits. GW9 will also be with Ronaldo and Lukaku now being abandoned leaving people trigger happy with all that cash piled up and waiting to be blown.

                      My hit was essentially for Troare > Mbeumo. Not so good last week!

                      Although glad I did it. Made this week easier.

                    for those taken a -4 already. is it worth a further -4 to swap lukaku this week or let the sub defender come on??

                      To have one player sitting on your bench at almost 12m is a sinking feeling and will also lose value before the deadline.

                      Getting in 2 players at -8 replacing his 0 points expected is not the worst idea.

                      You just need to make sure the players you bring in are capable of consuming the -8 and are nailed on for the following GW 😉

                    Ronaldo Jota to:

                    A) Vardy Foden
                    or
                    B) Jimenez KDB

                    Greenwood > Son -4 (or Havertz?)

                    Started playing with WC drafts, thoughts on below?

                    Raya/Foster
                    TAA/Cancelo/Chilwell/Livra/Manq
                    Salah/Son/Havertz/Raph/Mbeumo
                    Vardy/Broja/Hwang

                    For sure would like to include Cancelo, Che def, Livra, Salah, Havertz, Mbeumo and Vardy.
                    Not sure about keeping TAA considering Che incoming fixtures, I see value in downgrading him to maybe Azpi for now.

                    All set on doing Cr7 > Lukaku this week, not having much luck with my planned transfers...

                    Cr7 > Vardy instead? Already have Son so don't fancy Kane.

                      I am thinking of keeping Ronaldo- turns up for the big games. Could be high scoring

                        • 1 Year

                        I have had a U turn and now keeping for that reason

                    Now that Lukaku is out it's very simple captain decision. Mo (C).
