Fantasy Premier League gameweek nine is upon us and as always, we've got plenty of tips for you.
From who you should captain to the transfers you need to consider, follow our guide and hopefully you'll start racking up the points.
The Leicester City centre forward rose in price overnight and for good reason, Romelu Lukaku is injured and everyone needs the next best replacement. OR was Vardy the best option all along? If you've been following our tips in recent weeks, you'll know that we've been championing Vardy for a while. The Leicester forward has seven goals and an assist to his name already and until now was a solid differential pick. He faces the defensively sound Brentford this week but if recent performances are anything to go by, his goalscoring form is likely to continue here.
Price: £10.6m, points: 56, stats: 7G, 1A
The Chilwell-Alonso head to head gets trickier to decide on by the week, but despite starting in Europe midweek, Chilwell was preserved after an hour and therefore you have to think that Thomas Tuchel had eyes on the weekend. The Chelsea defender has scored in each of his last two games and is a real attacking threat. Bottom of the league Norwich are up next.
Price: £5.7m, points: 23, stats: 2G, 0A, 1CS
Zaha missed out on the 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Monday due to illness, but manager Patrick Vieira confirmed it wasn't Covid-10 related and that he would return to training midweek. Coming up against Newcastle left, Palace have a new attacking identity under Vieira and Zaha could run riot on a defence that is fit for the Championship.
Price: £7m, points: 31, stats: 2G, 1A
This is a two-for-one offering. Well, not really, but it's difficult to decide between them. Mbuemo is a solid midfield option for your team, he plays out of position up front with Toney and has huge potential points in him. Having hit the woodwork more than any other player in the league this season (6!), Mbuemo could be about to explode and has favourable fixtures approaching.
Toney, on the other hand, has settled into life in the Premier League well with two goals and two assists, while proving a nightmare for defenders to handle with his physicality. Leicester have been weak defensively this season and away at Brentford could concede goals.
Price: £5.6m, points: 29, stats: 2G, 0A/Price: £6.5m, points: 33, stats: 2G, 2A
His contributions in front of goal may have dried up of late, but that's no reason to pass on Demarai Gray just yet. He has still looked threatening in every game and with Watford at home up next, Gray will be looking to add to his tally of three goals and an assist this season.
Other transfer options to consider: Joao Cancelo, Armando Broja, Odsonne Edouard, Sadio Mane, Patson Daka, pretty much anyone from Chelsea.
Captain contenders: Mohamed Salah, Jamie Vardy, pretty much anyone from Chelsea.
