Fantasy Premier League 2020/21 Gameweek 8: Three in, three out

Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 8 is set to get underway on Friday the 6thh of November.

The first clash of the weekend pits Brighton against Burnley at 5:30 PM UK time.

As a result, your team must be locked in by 4:00 PM UK time on Friday.

Gameweek 8 will come to an end on Sunday the 8th of November, when Arsenal and Aston Villa face off.

Below are 101’s FPL tips for the upcoming game week.

Three in, including Chelsea defender

Ben Chilwell (5.9)

Chilwell missed the start of the 2020/21 campaign through injury.

However, since returning to action for his new club, the defender has staked a name as arguably the top full-back in the Premier League right now.

Since Chilwell came back, Chelsea’s defence has been much more solid, and whilst of course, all the credit shouldn’t be given to Chilwell – he is earning the clean sheet bonuses on FPL.

Moreover, Chilwell also provides a solid attacking outlet for the Blues and has already notched a goal and two assists in just four Premier League outings.

It is also worth noting that Chelsea are at home to a poor Sheffield United side this game week.

So not only should another clean sheet be forthcoming, but Chilwell should also be in with a good chance of notching some form of attacking output this week.

Wilfried Zaha (7.4)

Crystal Palace’s form has been fairly patchy of late, picking up just one win from their last five.

Despite this, Wilfried Zaha has continued his solid start to the campaign.

In just seven outings this season, the Ivorian has already managed to notch an impressive five goals and one assist for a Palace side who don’t score too many goals.

Palace are also now set to face a Leeds side who often concede a fair few goals, meaning Zaha is likely to be on the scoresheet once again in GW8.

Also, at 7.4, Zaha represents a great budget option and a potential replacement for the currently sidelined James Rodriguez.

Jamie Vardy (10.0)

Unlike Zaha, Jamie Vardy is on the expensive end when it comes to FPL forwards.

However, the now 33-year-old is once again in fine form for Leicester City.

After netting against Leeds on Monday, Vardy has now already scored seven and assisted two in the league this season, making him the second-best forward on FPL.

And though he is on the expensive side, it does look as though Vardy will once again be in the race for the Golden Boot this term.

Three out, including Southampton forward

Danny Ings (8.5)

After a sensational 2019/20 which saw him net 22 league goals, Danny Ings has had another solid start to 2020/21.

Ings has already scored five and assisted two in the league for Southampton and is the 5th-best forward on FPL.

So, getting rid of the hitman doesn’t seem to make too much sense.

However, Ings suffered an injury in the Saints’ win over Aston Villa at the weekend and now is set to be out for around 4-6 weeks.

Andy Robertson (7.1)

Like Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson had a superb record last season, bagging both a plethora of assists and clean sheets.

This, in turn, led to the Scotsman being made the 2nd-most expensive defender on FPL for 2020/21.

However, though Robertson has chipped in with two assists this term, Liverpool are simply not garnering enough clean sheets to warrant you keeping the expensive Robertson.

Chilwell, for example, has played three less games than the Liverpool defender and is over 1.0 cheaper yet he has already accumulated four more FPL points.

Riyad Mahrez (8.4)

The final player you should look to move on is Riyad Mahrez.

The Algerian had an excellent 2019/20, bagging 11 goals and 12 assists in 33 league outings.

So at his original 8.5, Mahrez did look set to be a solid budget option this campaign.

However, Mahrez has since notched just one goal and one assist in five PL ties, a much poorer record than the likes of Jack Grealish and Wilfried Zaha who are also cheaper than the City man.
