Description: Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 9 Team, Transfers, Injuries And Captain Choice: The SportsRush reveals its team for gameweek 9 along with the transfers made and captaincy pick.
With gameweek 9 of the Premier League moving ever closer, we decided to get done with our transfer picks without further ado. Back after a two week hiatus with international matches being contested in the mean time, there were a slew of reasons which needed our extensive perusal before crafting out our side for this gameweek.
After dwelling into these factors and taking into the consideration of performances during the international fixtures and the set of fixtures slated in gameweek 9, we decided to use both of our available transfers this time around. Rejjigng our side this time around, we decided to bring in Callum Wilson and Andriy Yarmolenko, opting for choices in the attacking docket with goals expected aplenty in this round of ties.
FPL GW 9 Team, Transfers, Injuries And Captain Choice
Nick Pope, 4.6 million
Burnley face a tough test when they play against Leicester City this time around but we decided to repose side in the team’s defence. One of the staunchest, most coherent and cohesive defence in the game, the side have bestowed in their repository a daunting backline, one which has taken the side to several wins with its disciplined and responsible performances.
Fikayo Tomori, 4.7 million
When Frank Lampard took over Chelsea, his displays with Derby County meant cleansheets were always going to be a lesser seen entity at the club. And the narrative has reciprocated his gameplan at this old club with Lampard having now kept just 12 cleansheets in the 70 matches he’s been in charge of.
However, it’s the nature of Chelsea’s forthcoming clashes which see us entrust Tomori as our choice in our side’s defence. The defender has made a real headway into this side, someone who has impressed with the astute performance he had imbedded, a player who has imbued into him a nous of innate abilities to try and complete a successful shut down for his side.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, 7.2 million
He takes on a languishing and lacklustre Manchester United side this time and with chances of Alisson coming back into Liverpool’s setup, the chances of Liverpool emerging with a cleansheet have massively increased. They might have kept just the two cleansheets till now but the rightback has gotten the three assists in the side’s eight contests with Jurgen Klopp always persistently asking his fullback to gallop down the park.
Diego Rico, 4.1 million
Bournemouth are a side who are not known to keep cleansheets but with Norwich City coming this time around, the side might be finally able to emerge with a discourse which has been so elusive for them. Also, Rico has been handed over the wingback role for his side, one which has allowed him to canter down the pitch and dutifully ingrain in the due processes to pick up either a goal or assist.
Kevin de Bruyne, 10 million
The fulcrum of Manchester City’s gameplan, everything successful for the side has majorly stemmed form the midfielder this season. He’s back in practice sessions as well, looking extremely likely to play for his side against Crystal Palace, seeing him become an instant pick for us in this encounter.
Also, on corners and freekicks, the player looks set to get atleast the one goal or assist in this clash as City look to come hot out of the blocks in this clash and remind everyone that they are still kicking in their pursuit for the coveted title.
Mason Mount, 6.8 million
The Chelsea midfielder has perhaps been one of our best buys this season. We moved in quickly for him, getting him when he was worth just 6 million and with his price rocketing to 6.8 million now, the figure is a testament to how imperious his performers have been.
He’s been everything the side were so ardently yearly for since last year, a midfielder who isn’t afraid to move forward and take ample shots at goal, a player who has earned a flurry of goals that way and looks set to only further his tally.
Andriy Yarmolenko, 6 million
Our first transfer this gameweek was directed towards getting in the West Ham player into our midfield. He came in place of David Silva as we looked to open up funds to shift elsewhere, becoming our choice due to the tenacity he’s shown in the side’s opening exchanges.
He’s come in and massively helped the side wrench out of their impasse in the attacking side of things, a player whose been pivotal to their gameplan and we envisage him to get in good points for us this time around.
Mohamed Salah, 12.5 million
There’s nothing too serious about the slight injury he picked up in the side’s previous outing in the Premier League, seeing us make him our final pick in this slot. Ever since his bust up with Sadio Mane, Salah has regressed in form, waning to be left devoid of goals and assists but this clash against Manchester United might just be the one to see him return to his goal scoring ways.
Sergio Aguero, 12.2 million
There were questions aplenty on whether Sergio Aguero would be involved in the upcoming gameweek after Argentina had revealed he was suffering an injury but with the striker involved in practice sessions with his side, he looks clear to be included in their side. Playing Jesus has clearly not worked for Manchester City with the striker nowhere close to the calibre Aguero possesses as a striker and as City chase Liverpool, the player will be the focal point of their title bid.
Callum Wilson, 7.9 million
Our second transfer for the gameweek, the Bournemouth striker came in to replace the regressive Teemu Pukki. Bournemouth have sublime ties in the time to follow, beginning this gameweek itself with Norwich City being their opponents, a fixtures Wilson will be eying up to further his goal scoring tally against a paper thin defence.
Tammy Abraham, 7.7 million
He’s snared a solid amount of goals for the gigantic club and with Frank Lampard putting all his trust in his young players this season, Tammy Abraham will be playing most of Chelsea’s matches as their strikers. The fixtures are just too good, which in tandem with the side’s attacking gameplan at the moment make the striker an instant pick for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Deploying a 3-4-3 formation for this gameweek, we have made Callum Wilson our captain, a choice who’ll hardly be touched but one we envisage getting in a haord of points with Aguero our vice-captain.
We would love for you to revel into our Fantasy Premier League, The SportsRush League and engage in a season long soiree. League Code- yth7jc
