Fantasy Football: week 9

The international break is now over which means that Premier League and Fantasy Football is back.

Daniel Jessop, LM fantasy football league commissioner

The international break can always be unlucky for some teams, as Liverpool have found this time around. For their visit to Huddersfield on Saturday evening, they could be without Sadio Mane, Mohammed Salah, Naby Keita and Virgil Van Dijk. They will be playing Huddersfield, one of 3 teams yet to win a game this season, with the second worst defence, so it could be a good time to use those substitutes and hope they get points.

One positive for a lot of fantasy managers is the news that Kevin De Bruyne is back in training and expected to be available, after a knee injury sidelined him from Gameweek 1. Only 3.6% of managers have De Bruyne in their team, however this could change come Saturday morning.

A London derby at the London Stadium awaits both West Ham and Tottenham as Harry Kane will be hoping to carry on his good performances over the international break with a couple of goals against a struggling West Ham.

The game of the weekend, however, will be the lunchtime kick off between Chelsea and Man Utd. Will the highest points scorer in the league, Eden Hazard, carry on his good form that has seen him pick up 74 points already this season, or will Pogba and co inflict a first league defeat on the Blues this season?
