Gameweek 9 brings with it fresh injury concerns, especially if you've decided to put your eggs in Chelsea's basket.

Both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are out injured, but the Blues still remain as the favourite for the weekend with the clash against Norwich City lined up.

It might be time to consider investing in Jamie Vardy (if you haven't already), and Leicester have some promising fixtures coming up - Brentford, Arsenal, Leeds, Watford, and Southampton.

Here are four players to pick for your FPL team for gameweek 9.


Jamie Vardy - £10.6m - Brentford

Vardy had a shaky start to the season, but the Leicester star is up and running with 35 points in the last four gameweeks. Brentford have proven to be a tough cookie for all teams who have faced them until now, but Vardy, fresh from his goal against Manchester United last weekend, will be looking to score again. The forward has been selected by 21.8 percent of FPL managers at the time of writing and looks a good pick based on his form.


Ben Chilwell - £5.7m - Watford

Chilwell failed to play a single minute in the first six gameweeks, but has now started back-to-back games, and seized his opportunity, scoring against Southampton and Brentford to total 23 points in the last two gameweeks. At the time of writing, he is the most-bought defender for Gameweek 9, and second most-bought overall, earning 177,000+ new owners.


Bryan Mbeumo - £5.5m - Leicester

Mbeumo is garnering all sorts of attention for his performances over the last few gameweeks. The Frenchman is owned by only 3.3 percent of managers at the time of writing, but could prove to be a solid FPL asset. Both his goals this season have come in the last four gameweeks, with the 22-year-old scoring and earning eight points against Wolves and West Ham. Leicester are yet to keep an away clean sheet this term, conceding nine away goals so far.


Danny Ings - £7.8m - Arsenal

Ings is one of the most reliable FPL strikers, and with Lukaku ruled out, the Aston Villa man could be a good option to bring in. Villa are up against Arsenal, who have been extremely hot and cold until now, and the England international could capitalise on Arsenal's shaky defence. At the time of writing, Ings has been selected by 7.8 percent of managers.
