Goal Keepers

Dean Henderson (Sheffield United £4.5): Bought on a loan deal from Manchester United and playing as the first choice keeper for Sheffield United this season, Dean Henderson has kept the most number of clean sheets (4) in the eight premier league games played before the international break. Henderson is an Ideal Choice in a £4.5 budget and will be surely tested in the big home game fixture against the Gunners.

Mathew Ryan (Brighton £4.5): Brighton will travel to Aston Villa on October 19, 2019 (Saturday). Mathew Ryan is an ideal backup keeper for any FPL side with his reliability and rising game value. He has already racked up 35 FPL points. The Brighton shot-stopper has three clean sheets so far and you would not want to miss the man in form.

Leicester City (Kasper Schmeichel  £5.0): The Danish Goalkeeper has the most consistent season in the premier league so far as he has kept two clean sheets bagging 3 points in four matches. A home game against Burnley and another clean sheet might just seal his day and earn him some more brownie bonus points. Kasper Schmeichel should be your first choice keeper if you're thinking of trading your A-list goalkeeper.


Martin Kelly (Crystal Palace £4.1)

If you are looking for a low-cost defender - in close to  £4 range price tag - with high-value performances, then Crystal Palace centre-back Martin Kelly is a great buy. The 29-year old has helped Leicester keep 3 clean sheets across all competitions and which is more than his price value? He should be a good backup defender to pick for your FPL squad despite a tough Mancity fixture.

John Lundstram (Sheffield United £4.5)

Lundstram had earned praises, from football pundits and fans alike, right from the start of EPL. It has helped him jump from  £4 to £4.5 price tag. currently On a spree of getting bonus points, John Lundstram is an ideal buy at £4.5 and is ranked among top 3 FPL defenders in terms of the points tally. He would be a great buy and is expected to reach £5.2 by the end of the season.

Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool £6.5)

You need to have FIFA Player of the Year nominee Dutch centre-back Van Dijk in your squad for reliability. The Liverpool defender has had a decent season so far with three clean sheets but there's a lot more to look forward in the coming matches, especially away fixture to Manchester United in the weekend. The Netherlands skipper is must buy if it fits your budget.


Mason Mount (Chelsea £6.8)

Chelsea's 20-year old young gun Mason Mount has grabbed all attention this season, scoring 4 goals and delivering an assist. The Englishman is an ideal pick for playing the role of an attacking midfielder and is also a great pick if you're looking for an ideal substitute to fill the place in your FPL squad. Go for it! With Home fixture against Newcastle, Mason Mount's points would come handy. A great long-term prospect.

Raheem Sterling (Manchester City £12.1)

If you don't have English International forward Raheem Sterling in your FPL side then you're losing some big points. The Manchester City left-winger has 6 goals so far in the eight matches that he has played so far the premier league and despite the costly price tag, it's all worth it! The Citizen next take on Crystal Palace in an away match, while their next two fixtures against Aston Villa and Southampton are home games.

Andriy Yarmolenko (West Ham United  £6.0)

Ukrainian forward who plays as a Right Wing Forward for West Ham has enjoyed an impressive 2019 EPL season so far with three goals and an assist in the seven games he has played so far. He is an attacking winger, who can be picked for the away game against Everton. Hold on for three to four fixtures.

Must Buy Forwards

Tammy Abraham (£7.7), Teemu Pukki (£7.1), Harry Kane (£10.9)

Forwards are the most important point earners for your FPL Squad and if you don't have either of Chelsea's Tammy Abraham, Norwich City's Teemu Pukki or Spurs striker Harry Kane, you are definitely gonna miss out on a lot of points. A strong forward, with Captain's presence, is Harry Kane who is also a penalty specialist for Tottenham Hotspurs and can be considered a long-term buy. Chelsea's Tammy Abraham and Norwich City's Teemu Pukki are enjoying the form of their life and would be great buys for their respective price tags. Don't hesitate to make Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling your FPL captain and vice-captain for Gameweek 9 of EPL.
