FPL Gameweek 9 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned

There were huge Fantasy Premier League (FPL) hauls aplenty on Saturday, with Phil Foden, Mason Mount and Joshua King all registering three attacking returns in comprehensive victories for their sides and two Chelsea defenders supplementing their clean sheets with goals.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 9 fixtures.

INJURIES AND BANS

FPL Gameweek 9 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned 7

Raphinha (£6.7m) is an injury concern for Leeds United’s plum-looking Gameweek 10 clash against Norwich City, having limped out of the Whites’ draw with Wolves.

The Brazilian was seen on crutches and wearing a protective boot in the aftermath of that game, with Marcelo Bielsa unable to offer us much after full-time.

“He received a knock, we don’t know the extent or gravity of the injury.” – Marcelo Bielsa on Raphinha

There was at least a more positive update from the player himself, who said he was “fine” in comments posted on social media this evening.

Kalvin Phillips (£4.8m) was back on the bench at Elland Road but Marcal (£4.6m) missed the game for the visitors, even if his calf injury doesn’t sound serious and he could be back for Gameweek 10.

Ralph Hasenhuttl was also optimistic of goalscorer Armando Broja’s (£5.0m) chances of recovering from an ankle knock in time for the trip to Watford.

“I hope so. It doesn’t look too bad, hopefully. It will take a few days [for him to recover], I think. He is not allowed to play [against Chelsea] on Tuesday anyway, so we’re okay. He is a threat for us, definitely. He is helping our team.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl on Armando Broja

N’Golo Kante (£4.9m) and Raheem Sterling (£10.7m) sat out wins for Chelsea and Manchester City as precautions.

Fresh from a double-digit haul at Goodison Park, Emmanuel Dennis (£5.2m) will miss Gameweek 10 after picking up his fifth booking of the season today.

GAMEWEEK 9 TAKEAWAYS

LIVRAMENTO IS THIS YEAR’S LUNDSTRAM?

Tino Livramento (£4.3m) isn’t an ‘out of position’ defender in the mould of John Lundstram but he’s providing similar value from a £4.0m starting price, with Saturday’s goal against Burnley meaning that he has banked an attacking return or clean sheet in five of the last six Gameweeks. This was no fluke, either, as he registered three shots and created another three chances against the Clarets, hitting the post with another effort.

Among £4.5m-and-under defenders, Livramento is second to and only four points behind Shane Duffy (£4.4m). And while Livramento’s ever-present starter status remains intact, Duffy was an unused substitute in Brighton’s loss to Manchester City. It was likely a ‘horses for courses’ selection by Graham Potter, with the Irishman’s lack of pace probably a consideration, but Adam Webster (£4.4m) made his comeback from injury on the bench and Tariq Lamptey (£4.4m) produced an eye-catching cameo to further the medium-term concerns about Duffy’s security of starts.

MOUNT AND FODEN ON THE CRUSADE FOR MID-PRICE MIDFIELDERS

So much value is being offered by £6.0m-and-under midfielders this season (the eye-catching Maxwel Cornet (£6.0m) is now firmly on the radar in that price rung after his brace against Southampton) that it’s easy to overlook the options in the bracket above. But Phil Foden‘s (£8.0m) recent promise finally culminated in a massive 18-point haul at the Amex, with Mason Mount (£7.4m) topping even that with a hat-trick in Chelsea’s 7-0 win over Norwich City.

Foden’s strikes were somewhat fortunate given the deflections involved but he was nevertheless putting himself in positions to score in his false nine role, topping the Gameweek 9 count for goal attempts, shots in the box and efforts on target.

Mount, meanwhile, can boast the best expected goal involvement (xGI) figure of any midfielder in Gameweek 9 so far, even if his mammoth FPL score comes with a big, fat, yellow-and-green caveat of it ‘only being Norwich’.

It wasn’t all success stories at this price point, however: Kai Havertz (£8.1m) – captained by 11% of the top 10k – somehow failed to get in on the act in that thumping win for the Blues.

CHELSEA’S DEFENDERS: HIGH RISK, HIGH REWARD

We were given another weekly reminder that Thomas Tuchel holds all the cards with our Chelsea defenders, with the German benching Marcos Alonso (£5.9m), Andreas Christensen (£5.1m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.2m) for the humping of the Canaries. Ben Chilwell (£5.7m), who now has 35 points in three Gameweeks, Antonio Rudiger (£5.8m) and Reece James (£5.5m) again demonstrated the upside of owning a member of the Blues backline, however, notching attacking returns to go with their clean sheets. It’s Newcastle and Burnley up next before the international break, so it’s an emphatic hold on most of our Chelsea defenders (Alonso perhaps aside) ahead of Gameweeks 10 and 11 – and all eyes on the teamsheet in the midweek EFL Cup clash with Southampton.

A GOOD DAY FOR BUDGET FORWARDS

Sub-£6.5m players have been responsible for eight of the 11 goals scored by forwards in Gameweek 9 so far.

Joshua King (£5.5m), back from injury and playing through the middle of Claudio Ranieri’s 4-2-3-1, scored a hat-trick, while Broja has two goals in as many starts and Hwang Hee-chan (£5.7m) made it four goals in six apperances since his Gameweek 4 debut with the opener at Leeds.

Both names currently on our Watchlist on the sidebar of our homepage, Hwang and Broja have another good-ish five Gameweeks’ worth of fixtures to come before we reach the hectic December period.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 9

After what seemed like years of dormancy as a Fantasy asset, 2016/17 cult favourite King burst back onto the scene on Saturday. A total of four big chances and an xGI figure of 2.13 haven’t been beaten in Gameweek 9 so far, and he now has six attacking returns in his last four appearances for the Hornets.

Christian Benteke (£6.3m) matched King for big chances on Saturday, notching back-to-back goals in successive Gameweeks and only being denied a match-winner against Newcastle after a foul was spotted in the build-up. He is top for xGI among all Premier League players since his return to the Palace line-up in Gameweek 8.

    Got a feeling GOALONSO starts next week and hauls.
    Would be the ultimate punishment

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

      Chilwell looks too strong right now. Can see Alonso getting the cup game.

    2. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Yes he starts next week in carabao cup

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        But if he doesn’t and Chilwell does….

        Or worse still if Alonso plays amazing in the cup

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

          Alonso played amazingly in the first 6 GWs. People even said he was keeping Chilwell out and bought him, even though Tuchel said Chilwell was on a mental health recovery break

          Alonso WILL start in the league at some point. He's not dead to Tuchel. But now that both are fully fit, Tuchel has started this dude 3 EPL games in a row (+ UCL), with three goals in a row (Alonso's strength), and all wins. He wasn't second choice last season, but he's been relegated to that so far this season. Even if Chilwell's benched in the next game, it looks more like a rest than last season's rotation. I'd make the switch asap and accept any Chilwell rest as something similar to Dias last GW or Rudiger's injury

      I think you're grasping at straws a bit too much here. Just take the L and ditch Alonso.

      1. Mutter's Munters
          1 month, 7 days ago

          I'm thinking of Semedo -> Chilwell and keeping Alonso. My back line would be TAA, Cancelo, Alonso, Chillwell, Livramento. Would play both each week with either gallagher or livra 1st bench for the inevitable. This a waste of money?

        • KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Oh no don’t get me wrong I fully plan to sell, but I just know what will happen lol

      2. Clintymints
        • 12 Years

        Alonso cup

        Chilwell weekend

      Alright - I’m having not the best couple of weeks but I’m still around 100k at the. Of this GW (probably) so it’s not a bad start by any stretch.
      Feel I need to get back to some long term planning and move slowly.

      Ramsdale
      Dias, Cancelo, Azpi, Livramento
      Salah, Havertz, Jota
      Vardy, Antonio, Jimenez

      (Foster, Raphinha, Brownhill, Duffy)

      1ft, 1.2 itb

      a/ Raphinha > Mbeumo
      b/ Raphinha > Mount
      c/ Havertz/Jota > Mount/ Foden

      a/ + Duffy > Chilwell (-4)

      Any thoughts?

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

        I have an idea you might not want to hear, but here it is:

        Raph + Duffy > D.Luiz + TAA, and hope Jota starts, with Livra first sub

        Jota to Mount if you don't want the risk, but I wouldn't take that extra hit when Livra's this good

        Havertz, Jota, Dias and Antonio might have to combine into Son + Brentford +/- 4.5 D at some point. I have no idea how/when exactly. Jim back to Antonio GW16

        https://www.livefpl.net/myteam should help with planning

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          1 month, 7 days ago

          Interesting. Haven’t been too keen on 2 cheap mids up until now - feels not ambitious enough. But that’s definitely something that could work.

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

            I'm on this from GW10:

            McCarthy
            TAA Cancelo Chilwell Rudiger
            Salah Son Foden
            Vardy Antonio Hwang

            Matthews | Livra D.Luiz Brownhill

            Antonio to Toney for GW11. Hwang + Rudiger become Antonio + Dier later. McCarthy swings to Sa and then DDG long tern. Vardy to CR7 for that same fixture run. I'll keep adapting as my players keep getting injured: Raph and Tierney out for GW10. Planning is fun, but adapting is important if you do

      2. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        I think the first thing you may want to ask yourself is, are you happy with your team structure? If not, then it might be time to roll a transfer and prepare to restructure with 2 FT.

        The other thing to ask yourself from a long-term planning perspective is, are there any captains you want over the next 4-6 GW that you don't own? If so, how hard are they to get to and what is your plan to get there?

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

      Alonso to ?

      A-TAA tomorrow
      B- Chilwell before price rise

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Defenders to own right now TAA>Cancelo>Chilwell>James , make of that what you will

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

          Would have Rudiger there before James. And I own James.

    6. dontyouknowimloko
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      Guys, any thoughts on Duffy’s place now? Might be a one week benching but with others coming back could it become a regular sight.

      Thinking Duffy>Chil tonight to beat the price rise. Would you do it or hold?

      Rest of defence is TAA, Cancelo, James, Tino.

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

        The Brighton fans are mystified by it. Could be he’s been rested

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

        I love Chilwell as a player but you’ve got to have good cover on the bench

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

          Other risks in my team are Foden, Cancelo, James, Broja.

          Rest are pretty much nailed.

          Think I’m gonna do it.

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

        Unless you really wanted to play 4 at the back I feel like James is already plenty Chelsea wing back cover
        Wouldn't want to bench one of those premium defenders each week

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

          Yep, that makes sense.

          Problem is I’m addicted to transfers but if it ain’t broke…

          Ok, I’ll hold.

      4. RedRo
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Brighton have had players out since the start of the season and now they’re coming back. He was never first choice but had a good run.

      5. Bleh
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Is Jota, Benrahma, Marcal > Son, Foden, Chilwell (-8) too drastic? Haven’t taken a hit all season but now feels like the time.

        Sanchez
        TAA, Cancelo, Livramento, Marcal*
        Salah, Jota, Benrahma, Gray
        Antonio, Vardy

        (4.0, Duffy, Allan, Dennis**)

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

          It’s a seemingly clear upgrade in three spots. Guessing you got some money lying around.

          I won’t say do it - but it seems the kinda hit that might pay off

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

            I’m seriously tempted. Have had so much money lying ITB these last 3-4 weeks so itching to improve.

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

          Honestly doesn't look that bad. It costs 8 points, but it's a huge upgrade. Son's next 3 are very difficult, so that's my only thought there.

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

            He’d already miss the WHU game for me so would just be MUN (H) and EVE (A). Neither have great defences as we’ve seen!

        3. Pep's Money Laundry
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Those are hits I would do

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

            Cheers!

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

          I wouldn't rush to get Son until see vs West Ham game and I would certainly keep any West Ham players for Villa next week as we look absolutely terrible atm

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

            Yep thanks, will make a late decision on Son. Jota > Foden seems like a no brainer though, as is Marcal > Chilwell.

      6. SalahFingers
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Marcal + Gallagher + Lukaku -> Chilwell + Foden + Aubameyang (-4)

        No brainer.. right?

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

        2 FTavailable, which should I make?
        A) Sarr, Semedo > Havertz, Manquillo
        B) Sarr > Mbeumbo (save 1 FT)
        C) Sarr, Semedo > Mbeumbo, Chilwell/ReeceJames

        1. The Son-dance Kid
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          C, if you have decent bench cover

        2. Pep's Money Laundry
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Delete A and go for one of the other two, I would go C

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

          I would not get Havertz. 7 goals and he did nothing while being OOP. He is dropping like a rock, so will lose value too.

          Mbuemo is ok, but not better than Sarr. Why are you looking to get rid of Sarr so much?

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

            Mostly for the price drop and trying to lock in my gains, and tough fixture coming up.

      8. yeahbuddy
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Can anyone bring me up to speed with Sarr's involvement yesterday? Only see him being subbed off then Dennis going bonkers from his position...
        Will still look to transfer out after SOU

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

          Not too sure but Dennis suspended to due 5th yellow

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

            Very sad about this.

      9. Dynamic Duos
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Raphina and Tierney better be ok

      10. mixology

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

        Thinking of switching to 4-4-2 long term.

        Something like this:

        Ramsdale
        TAA Cancelo Chilwell James
        Salah Son Foden Mbeumo
        Kane Toney

        Basically:
        GW11: Roll FT
        GW12: Antonio + Raphinha > Son + Davis

        I'd have an awful bench of Livra, Brownhill, Davis, but that starting XI is plum and double Spurs for their run starting in GW12.

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

          Put some respeck on Livra’s name!

          Seriously though, I think I’m heading for a 4-4-2 myself. Currently on Vardy and Antonio upfront.

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

          I like team you are aiming to get so good plan- great back 4 but some rotation risk- risk v reward!

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

            Yeah because there's a bit of rotation risk, I will probably end up sticking with the safer looking Raphinha + Toney over Son + Davis. It depends how frustrated I get with benching points which is gonna happen a lot with my current team.

            1. gart888
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 7 days ago

              Toney was already in your riskier sounding lineup though?

        3. Utopsis
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 7 days ago

          Too much concentration on a handful of clubs for me - you've got 2 each from Chelsea, Spurs, City, Brentford & Liverpool + Ramsdale. You'll be relying on wins / CSs from 5 teams every week, and if more than one has an off day in the same GW you're in for a low scorer.

      12. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 7 days ago

        Worth WC to move from team A to B. Being on 12 (-4) so far with Team A could be think irrationally! 7 changes

          You're on a -12 already?

          If not, and you have 1 FT that team is more than fine. Alonso > Chilwell. I'd look to WC in 12.

            I think D_D was referring to their GW9 score. 12 points with one hit so far

            I agree with the 1 FT and held wildcard. Maybe Raph + Scarlett > Toney + 4.4 if confirmed out, and trust Livra to cover Alonso for one more GW, then address that fire next

          No. I have only scored 12 points so far this week with team A and as took -4 net 8 points. Shocking but still have Livramento points to come in and TAA Salah (c) Mbeumo Benrahma Kane and Antonio to go

          I have just moved Alonso to Chilwell with free transfer and contemplating WC - thanks for saying you don’t think I need to

          You're getting punished selling all West Ham assets before Villa game. What if they beat Spurs comfortably? Surely not making these moves today?

              I'm thinking of Semedo -> Chilwell and keeping Alonso. My back line would be TAA, Cancelo, Alonso, Chillwell, Livramento. Would play both each week with either gallagher or livra 1st bench for the inevitable. This a waste of money?

              1. RedRo
                  1 month, 7 days ago

                  I don’t like it. That’s what, almost 12m for one defender spot? If one of Chilwell or Alonso were nailed for all games would you pay 11-12m for them?

                    Doesnt work like that,TAA + fodder is 11.5 so this is similar.
                    And much better than TAA right now,Chilwell already got 3 goals in last 3.

                        It works exactly like that lol do you think Chilwell’s going to continue to scor a goal a game the rest of the season? If so, go for it

                          No its not,doesnt matter how much goals will Chilwell score not important at all.

                          Compare TAA(+fodder) points vs Chilwell and Alonso points combined both ~11.5M

                            Chilwell 35 + Alonso 39 = 74 so far
                            TAA on 41 with 1 game less

                                            You are right,i wont buy Che defender for 12M will keep TAA for 4.5M less and improve elsewhere with those 4.5M

                                              Thanks for your thoughts. Assuming the strategy would be to play both alonso and chillwell every week and one will inevitably be benched vs play just Taa and if he doesn't play - livra comes in. So far this season the points would be 74 (CHE) vs 41+9 = 50 (Taa/Liv). Start of season $: 11.5 vs 11.5. Current $: 11.6 vs 11.8.

                                              24 points up and quids in, I think there's a case for it.

                                                Of course, you sacrifice bench depth and an effective chelsea slot.

                                                  fyi, went alonso > chillwell instead 😀 Thinking of taking a -12 this week hehe

                                You're almost betting against yourself, you just need to make the call and replace Alonso..... they will never both play, would would be better off with Chilwell and Rutiger at least some weeks they both play

                                Had same doubt and went Alonso > Chilwell this GW,think to get James too.

                                Maybe Chilwell + James/Rudiger

                              Seems to be be loads of great options in Midfield but up front is tough to call.
                              2 FT and I want to drop Lukaku and Raphina and and bring in Mount + Forward (Can't keep Lukaku because I have Kovaic and James) but every time I bring in Vardy he does nothing and I just don't fancy anybody else (already have Antonio and Hwang) ....
                              Money is not an issue but I think Toney is probably the best option ....

                              Who do people fancy to score over next few weeks??

                                Toney looks a decent option, Broja could be good for the next few if he's taken Armstrong's spot (so long as passed fit). I'm looking at both as a potential Armstrong replacement.

                                Toney + Son should let you focus transfers on other spots for the next 10+ GWs, maybe even longer for Son

                              Ugh, Adam Armstrong has been my worst pick up this season by far. Got him in for this run so thinking of a straight swap to Broja who looks to have cemented a starting spot, assuming he's passed fit.

                              If Broja is out, worth keeping Armstrong or move him on anyway?

                                  I guess it depends who you could move him to. Toney? If so, I would

                                    Toney and Broja are who I am looking at currently.

                                  Probably worth moving especially if Broja is fit
                                  JWP back next game I think as cup game counts as one of the suspended
                                  I’m in the same boat below, but prefer Toney/Hwang unless I go Broja and play 5 midfield

                                    Yes. Prefer Cancelo but either

                                  Should I do White, Mahrez and Armstrong to Chilwell/James, Foden and Broja (-8) now? Starting to get annoyed losing out on potential team value and I don't want to be pricefixed out of players in future gameweeks

                                  Would you shift this team to 2 up top and 5 playable midfielders or leave Gilmour (for now) and target Mbuemo + Toney/Hwang to replace Armstrong/Gray/Raphinha (injury pending).

                                    If only 1 FT, then Armstrong to Toney seems the easiest/quickest/cheapest move.

                                      He recently went up now 0.1m short for free
                                      Gray to Mbuemo allows for the 0.1 but depends on Raph

                                        I didn't watch Everton today, but I've been impressed by Gray (I own him too).

                                  True to my name just done Dias Raphinha Havertz Jesus to Chilwell Son Foden Hwang.

                                  No more hits until next week!

                                    Those exits are scary

                                    Jesus could have easily outscored Foden this week, for instance. Foden had a slight touch to put in what was already possibly an own goal, and then had Jesus's goal skid slightly off his thigh

                                    Raph has other direct replacements. Havertz and Dias could as easily haul in the next game as they blanked in this one

                                    I'm a hit advocate myself, but this feels so... Dangerous

                                      Son hasn't even played yet, imagine if he gets sent off or injured etc. Good luck anyway!

                                  Feeling a little shell shocked after captaining Havertz today, and getting 1 point out of Cancelo and Raphinha.

                                  Best move forward? Is Raph to Foden before the price rise too knee jerky?

                                  Thinking of shifting Raph to Mbueno to fund Jota to Foden

                                  Yay nay?

                                  Could alternatively sell Benny to Mbueno, but value tied up and he's also fit!

                                  Any thoughts?

                                    After watching Villa vs Arsenal I would not sell any West Ham players this week

                                      Yep and also fit

                                      Mbueno makes sense, can always get Raph for Benny after Villa and when he's fit

                                      ESR over Mbueno?

                                    Jota (rotating) + Raph (protective boot) to Foden (Palace) and Mbeumo (Burnley)... Yay all day for me

                                    Don't sell Hammers until GW11

                                      Yea Villa too tempting and Benny also a lot of cash tied up

                                      Fixtures sweet for mbueno

                                  Setting up my team for next week bench is Mbuemo Livramento Duffy so there was really no point to get rid of ESR for Mbuemo on WC
