FPL Wildcard Gameweek 9 : Quissential things to keep in mind before playing your wildcard from the previous gameweeks as gameweek 9 edges ever nearer.
As the gameweeks in the 2019-20 edition of the Premier League have started running down their course, the league has started taking shape and divulging us in a clear picture of what to envision going forward. With eight rounds of matches beyond us now and gameweek 9 looming ever closer as the international set of fixtures get done with, the clamour for crafting our side for the forthcoming gameweek 9 has started taking precedence.
Before we started investing ourselves in picking out the most ideal players based on their current showings and fixtures to follow for them, we dwelled into the way the marquee league has transpired till now. It lead us to several crucial takeaways, lessons important to keep in mind before we embark on our sojourn for the gameweek to follow
Pukki Party Looks To Have Ended
If you are still hanging onto the Finnish striker, the time to let him go is now. The Norwich City striker has started waning in form, no longer the player who had set the league alight since its onset and bombarded his side forward to some tenacious results, ones which included a 3-2 unprecedented win over Manchester City.
With the fixtures only getting trickier for Norwich City to follow and Pukki involved with Finland for the Euro 2002 Qualifiers, the striker will find it tough to rediscover his touch. Still priced at 7.1 million, his rice has remained steady, making this the perfect moment to transfer him out for your side.
Chelsea’s Cheap Trivalent Is Extremely Enticing
Ever since the new season has made an advent, Chelsea supporters have been enthralled in something which looked improbable in the last couple of season. Their own slew of worldclass players have finally been accorded a gargantuan opportunity by manager Frank Lampard to prove their worth and three English players have snatched the opportunity given to them with both hands.
The duo of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham has been pivotal for the side in their attacking sojourns, two players who have effectively with precision bombarded their way forward to allude towards why they were so heavily touted as myriad performers. Also coming in at extremely cheap prices, the two offer immense value, players who are looking must have as things stand.
Completing the trio is CB Fikayo Tomori who prise has gone up to 4.7 million from 4.5 million. With just 5.4% people owning him in FPL, the defence has enticing fixtures, ones where he can easily end up keeping a plethora of cleansheets.
Kevin De Bruyne Is Someone You Have To Own
With the midfielder back in Manchester City’s practice sessions and looking ever likely to feature for the side this weekend against Crystal Palace, he is someone to pick up if you still haven’t gone for him. With City languishing in the league, already the 8 points behind Liverpool in second place, City will be playing their main 11 for some time to come with Kevin de Bruyne the fulcrum of their gameplan.
Apart from the match in Norwich City where he was brought on as a substitute in the second half, the player has come up with a goal or assist in every match and with the likes of Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and David Silva around him, the midfielder will massively benefit to become a constant source of points.
Repose Faith In Liverpool’s Fullbacks
After an incredible campaign in 2018-20 which saw them come up with 20 plus assists in between them, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson’s price rocketed to 7 million for the ongoing season. They haven’t offered that value though with just two cleansheets in 8 matches with Liverpool no longer the staunch and sturdy defensive setup which was so revered last season.
And with Manchester United and Tottenham coming up next for the side, this looks to be the ideal time to do away with the two and invest elsewhere. For us though, this is the time you repose faith in the duo, getting in atleast the one into your side given how much Jurgen Klopp relies on them to maraud their way forward and provide support to Salah and Sadio Mane.
With Trent Alexander-Arnold being on corners and freekicks a well, he looks the better option out of the two with the rightback having already come up with the one goal and three assists, something he can easily add to in the time to come.
Ryan And Dunk Offer Colossal Value
At a time when a majority of people have been yearning to get in expensive goal-keepers into ther side, Brighton’s Mathew Ryan has quietly edged ahead all of them. At just 4.6 million, he has picked up three cleansheets along with an impressive hoard of bonus points, ones he’s befittingly earned due to his imperious and valour filled displays.
And he’s gotten aren’t assistance from his captain and the side’s CB Lewis Dunk who has not only picked up cleansheets but gotten the two assists as well to add to his value. Brighton have extremely solid fixtures in their ensuing three gameweeks, making this duo a cheap and piquant one to invest in.
