The Complete Guide to FPL Gameweek 9: Tips, captains, team news and best players

UCL Fantasy: What to expect from Wednesday's matches and Tuesday review

Arsenal concluded Gameweek 8 with a Monday night game and immediately kick-off Gameweek 9 by facing Aston Villa on Friday. It’s a weekend highlighted by the classic Manchester United v Liverpool clash, alongside West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City’s trip to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Will managers stick to their original plan of captaining Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) at home to Norwich City? Or will the eternal fixtures v form conundrum lead them towards the outstanding form of Mohamed Salah (£12.8m)?

You’ll find plenty of advice on these sources of discussion, along with the usual help with armband conundrums and transfer dilemmas, below.

There’ll also be team reveals, Premium Members articles and videos in this comprehensive guide to the upcoming Gameweek.

This page will be regularly updated between now and the FPL deadline at 18:30 BST on Friday 22 October, so keep checking back for the latest content.
