English Premier League Gameweek 9 Fantasy Football Tips

English Premier League has given us eight weeks of soccer action so far, and now it's time to predict what will this new batch of fixtures bring to the football table.

Last gameweek in Fantasy Premier League saw new names arise on top of the weekly point table as the usual suspects didn't deliver. Names such as Rooney and Silva were left with mere point and week's number one pointman was Norwich's Anthony Pilkington with 15 points gathered from 2 goals and 3 bonus points. Also with 2 goal scored was Arsenal's Robin van Persie who dominated the field against Sunderland.

This week it's easy to predict one thing, sunday is the day every soccer fan will be glued to his seat as Manchester United goes against Manchester City. While the match may not be the best match fantasy football wise, it's certainly one of those matches you have to watch this season. Both teams will surely bring on their A game, but the match could as easily end with results like 0-0, 1-0 or 0-1. If the teams would score as they have this season, it might be a dream day for fantasy soccer players with Rooney, Nani, Silva or Aguero.

The hottest tips in Fantasy Premier League for gameweek 9 come from other teams. Liverpool took a point away from ManU in their last game and now host riser team Norwich. Everyone has been waiting for Suarez to start performing and this might just be the game in which the man scores big.

Newcastle's start of the season has been phenomenall in English Premier League. Situated in the fourth place and going against Wigan in their hometurf, one can expect a lot. Ba has scored 5 goals in last 3 matches and is  the man to look to if in need of a budget striker. Also, even if Newcastle defence isn't as cheap as it was because of the price rise, you can still find defenders very capable of clean sheets with still affordable prices for your football team.

How about Adebayor to score against Blackburn away from home? I'm going to captain either him or Suarez.

I followed suit and went for Suarez too! I have no idea how he didn't score! Ruddy in goal made some remarkable saves though! It's so hard to get the captain choice right this season - it is incredibly frustrating!

I hear you!

My options this gameweek were Suarez and van Persie, and of course I picked Suarez.

And to make things a bit more frustrating I transferred Dzeko out to get Suarez...

Overall, though, I think Suarez played very well, but it seems he's getting a reputation as a bit of a primadonna. Even when he's legimately hit, refs think he's acting.

Yeah, it was amazing that he didn't score. He did everything right except finishing.

It was just one of those night.

It is tempting to get someone else in but if he keeps playing like that he is bound to hit a hattrick soon, when everything goes in.

I'm holding on to him, at least for the next two games.
