FPL Tips : Free Hit Team for Gameweek 9

With most of the big names going blank in Gameweek 8, all focus is now set on Gameweek 9. Since, there is a break this week, most FPL Managers are having a long research time for their squad.

In case you are going through a tough period as a FPL Manager and are looking to use a chip, you are likely to go for a Free Hit. I have prepared a probable Free Hit team for the following Gameweek 9.


I am going for Patricio as my keeper. Wolves are facing Southampton in their home and I would back Patricio to give clean sheet this time around.


Liverpool’s Alexander Arnold is a must have for me. Despite Liverpool are facing a struggling Manchester United, Alexander Arnold can prove to be a wise pick. Arnold is most often the one to take corners and free kicks for the Liverpool side and thus provides more opportunities and chances for assists and goals. Otamendi finds a place in my XI as City as I expect City to give me a clean sheet against Crystal Palace.

Pereira is another good choice to have even if you are not using Free Hit.
Leicester will be having some good fixtures all the way through Gameweek 17. Only Gameweek 12 can be a challenging fixture for them where they will be facing Arsenal.


De Bryune, Maddison, Son and Mount constitute the midfield in my team. If you are not using Free Hit, you can go with Mane instead of Maddison. Since, I am using Free Hit, I went for Maddison as I am backing Leicester to produce comprehensive victory over Burnley.


I dont think there can be any debate on my forwards for following gameweek. Vardy, Abraham and Callum Wilson made my forward strong. Both Abraham and Callum Wilson have been in good form throughout this season.


Vardy is a good option for captaincy this week but since most FPL Managers would go for Vardy, I captained Son as an antique choice. You can go with Vardy or Mount. If you are confident enough on Pep Guardiola’s playing XI, De Bryune or Sterling whoever starts in playing XI for City would be a safe option for captain. I would also back Mane to provide good points as a captain if you have in your team.
