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.

        No, otherwise I would not have got rid of Lukaku last week. Just seen comments of some hoping he will be fit over for Brighton.

  14. SoShy
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

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

      No but would think Cancelo due a rest- hopefully in Caribou cup mid week

  15. Trondero

  17. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years

    Ok which moves do you prefer people? 2FT and 1.1m ITB.

    Sanchez
    TAA - Livramento - Rudiger
    Benrahma - Jota - Salah - Raphina
    ASM - Ronaldo - Antonio

    White - Marcal - Brownhill

    A) Ron + Jota > Vardy + Son
    B) Marcal + Jota + Ron > Cancelo + Foden/B.Silva + Vardy (-4)
    C) Anything else

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

      A

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B

  18. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    GTG with that WC team? 0.9ITB

    Tempted to (c) Havertz but maybe it is too much and will go with Salah.

    Raya
    Cancelo/Azpi/Chilwell
    Salah/Son/Havertz/Raph/Mbeumo
    Vardy/Toney

    Foster/Livra/Duffy/4.4

    1. Saint Tim
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Capt Salah, having Harvetz at all will be a good differential

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Sounds right!

    2. CMIUK (Catch Me If U Kane)
      • 4 Years

      very nice team. I will cap havertz

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Really?! Maybe I'm biased but surely we'll keep a CS vs Burnley?! Ings to score against an improved Arsenal...less sure. Sarr away at Goodison Park...less sure.

        1. Bobby_Baggio
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I am just never keen on benching mid/fwd over a defender

  23. Champions League Varane

    Both for -4

    Sissoko and Ronaldo to Auba and Havertz.
    Or.
    Ronaldo and Semedo to Cancelo and Kane.

  24. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Wasted a transfer on bringing Lukaku in.

    Blanked for 6 Chelsea games including a captaincy despite playing them all.

    Transferred him out for Vardy.

    Means I can't get Raphina unless I take a hit.

    One of the most unlucky transfers in my FPL history.
