Team Reveals

FPL Team Reveal: Who I’m replacing Romelu Lukaku with in Gameweek 9

After eight Gameweeks of the 2021/22 campaign, I’m currently sat just outside of the top 100k overall with 531 points.

Since I last checked in, I played a successful Gameweek 7 Wildcard, which I’ve included below alongside my Gameweek 8 set-up and week-by-week history of the season so far.

Now, ahead of Gameweek 9, my priority has been finding a replacement for the injured Romelu Lukaku (£11.6m). There are other issues in my team, like Adam Armstrong (£6.0m), but with a decent enough looking squad, I’m happy to wait a week or two before moving him on.

So, armed with £2.0m in the bank following last week’s frustrating Son Heung-min (£10.2m) > Phil Foden (£8.0m) transfer (don’t ask…), no forward is out of reach.

For context, here’s a shortlist of the options I considered.

    Currently on a WC - not fully convinced by Havertz, but one Norwich goal could ruin it….

    Sanchez

    Azpilicueta - Chilwell - Alonso

    Salah - Son - Raphina - Mbuemo

    Vardy - Antonio - Toney

    Bench: Foster; Livramento; Duffy; Norman

    2.4m ITB to bring in Cancelo and TAA in next few GWs.

    1. Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not sure about spending 11M on 2 defenders competing for 1 spot

  7. Gudjohnsen
    • 5 Years
