FPL Updates XI – Game-week 9

Game-week 8 turned out to be another good week for the FPL Updates XI as we climbed even further up the ranks, now sitting in the top 1% of Fantasy Premier League managers! At the end of the game-week, this is how the team looked:


So, 71 points overall, which turned out to be an extremely good score pushing us further up the tables!

Firstly in-between the sticks we can see big Tim kept us a clean sheet, brining in 6 points for the team. Alongside him in defence we saw a bit of a miserable 6 points from the 4 defenders, but hopefully they can step it up in the upcoming weeks and bring in some big points.

In midfield however we had a stormer with a total of 22 points from the 4 players! Hopefully these lads can keep it up and push us even further up the ranks.

Now this is where we got a bit of luck. With Costa out injured, our vice captain was Pelle and he brought in a massive 30 points for the team! Alongside him, Welbeck scored 7 points after he bagged a last minute goal for the Gunners.

So, with Game-week 9 staring us between the eyes, here is our change:

Trippier (OUT) -> Taylor (IN)

This week the transfer has been used to remove Trippier as he has flopped somewhat, and Taylor seems to have a good run of fixtures.


This week we once against start Tim Krul for the second week in a row. Hopefully he will once again bring another 6 points in. Alongside him in defence we are starting Clyne, Taylor and Wisdom who are all playing at home, and more importantly in fixtures in which they have the potential to keep clean sheets.

We name an unchanged midfield, being; Di Maria, Sterling, Sigurdsson and Fabregas. Unfortunately Fabregas and Di Maria are playing against each other so there could be some limited points here. However, Sigurdsson is playing Leicester City and Sterling is playing Hull City, so we have some huge potential here!

Up top we are starting Pelle, Welbeck and Costa. Mourinho has stated he is contention to play against United. All we can assume from this is that he may not be too far from a return from injury and so we have stuck with him for now. Alongside him we are starting Pelle and Welbeck who are playing Stoke City and Sunderland.

Finally, we have given the captaincy to Graziano Pelle after a cracking performance against Sunderland. This week he is at home to Stoke City, so hopefully he will show his class once again.
