Top 5 Strikers For FPL GW 9
Callum Wilson, 7.9 million
With a goal or assist in all of his gameweeks apart from the opening one, Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson became the first name to entice us with the striker putting in prestigious displays reminiscent of his displays in the 2018-19. The striker has worked hard to reach the annuls of strikers in the league, heralding in goals and assists aplenty to become the final link to an extremely alluring and ravishing Bournemouth side which has become revered for its brand of attacking football.
Playing against Norwich City this time around, a side which is known to ship goals, Bournemouth and especially Wilson will be allowed to express themselves freely, making the striker an instant pick for us this time around.
Raul Jimenez, 7.1 million
Coming in at just 7.1 million, the Wolverhampton striker is someone you can bring in your side and take a backseat for the ensuing three gameweeks. Wolverhampton’s 2-0 triumph over Manchester City before the internationals set of ties saw the striker get the two assists for his side in a result which could end up being the defining moment for Wolverhampton’s season. With people selling him left, right and centre, he’s someone whose not massively owned at the moment either, making him an extremely luring option at the moment.
Sergio Aguero, 12.1 million
Hs participation for the upcoming gameweek has been riddled with doubts with Argentina saying the striker joined them injured from Manchester City, seeing him miss matches for his country but across the last few days, he’s been involved in his side’s practice sessions. With City currently facing a deficit of 8 points behind Liverpool in first place, City can’t afford to not play their key players and Sergio Aguero looks set to retain his side in the team’s playing 11 when they play Crystal Palace this week.
He started the Premier League with aplomb, bombarding his way to a new record as he scored in succession in the first 6 matches of the season. A striker who can make something out of nothing and latch onto half cooked chances with consummate ease, the striker becomes a must have for not only this gameweek but the entirety of the season.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 11.1 million
Arsenal playing a tricky, resilient, perseverant and determined Sheffield United side in an away fixture this gameweek but we do envision the side fathoming the one goal atleast. And if anyone is going to score for the side, it’s going to be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the side’s leading goal scorer at the moment.
Althouhg Lacazette has returned in full practice sessions for the side, he looks unlikely to be included in the playing 11 for this one, a discourse which should benefit Aubameyang. Playing as the lone striker upfront of the side has seen him snare goals, emerging as the only consistent goal scorer in an otherwise inconstant and unstable Arsenal side, making him a good pick for this gameweek.
Tammy Abraham, 7.7 million
This has been the season where Chelsea’s young players have won our heart, covering themselves in glory with not only their succulent displays but the articulate nature and knowhow of the game they have shown. And Tammy Abraham has emerged as one such player, pushing back Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshauyi back in the choosing order for the side from London, seeing us go in with him for this clash.
It’s not just this clash at Stamford Bridge which should see him get more goals for the side but the ensuing set of fixtures as well which see us make him our choice for this clash, a player who should add a rich haul of points in gameweek 9.
