Last weekend produced a mixed set of results for our gameweek eight picks, with two players returning and two blanking. Gameweek nine kicks off on Friday, so here are our gameweek nine picks:
Tino Livramento (Southampton, £4.3m)
The young full-back has become something of a bargain asset for FPL bosses this season after joining from Chelsea in the summer. While Southampton have not looked great in defence, the teenager has picked up points in his last two appearances for the Saints in the top-flight.
The 18-year-old Croydon-born star has maybe not quite produced the attacking returns his play has deserved of late. However, he will continue to get forward and be an attacking threat for the Saints. A home game against struggling Burnley this weekend looks like a perfect one for the youngster to continue his run of picking up points.
Andros Townsend (Everton, £5.7m)
The former Crystal Palace winger is proving to be a bargain in both real life and in FPL. The experienced star has scored three goals and produced two assists, which makes him the fifth-highest points scorer from midfield. He has also been one of the most transferred players brought in this week by FPL bosses.
At his current price, he is currently the joint best value player of any midfielder or forward in FPL. With the likes of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin out injured, the Toffees will look to the likes of Townsend and Demarai Gray to provide their attacking threat against Watford at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.
Kai Havertz (Chelsea, £8.1m)
The Germany international could be an interesting OOP this weekend, as the Blues welcome Norwich to Stamford Bridge. Havertz has not been in great form this season, but a game against one of the league’s strugglers possibly playing as a central striker gives the former Bayer Leverkusen man the chance to shine. The absence of injured striking duo Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner means that the enthusiast is on Havertz to deliver.
The Blues also have games against Newcastle and Burnley to follow the match against Norwich. It could be a good time to bring in the youngster.
Ivan Toney (Brentford, £6.4m)
The former Newcastle striker has thrived at Brentford. Last season his goals helped the Bees to promotion. The 25-year-old has not quite been as prolific in the Premier League, but he has still produced four attacking returns in eight appearances, having scored twice and two assists. It could be argued that he is unfortunate not to have picked up more points.
His fixtures are good too. This weekend Toney comes up against a Leicester defence that has conceded at least two goals in each of their last four Premier League outings. The Bees then face games against Burnley, Norwich and Newcastle. They all offer the promise of points.
Do you fancy Ivan Toney to get on the scoresheet against Leicester this weekend and want to place a bet? Well, why not visit our betting page for the bookmakers we recommend for your wager.
