Here are the next round of fixtures that are taking place in Game Week 9 in the Premier League, which were gathered from the official Premier League website.

Saturday 1st October 2022

  • Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur: 12:30 pm
  • Bournemouth vs Brentford: 3:00 pm
  • Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: 3:00 pm
  • Fulham vs Newcastle: 3:00 pm
  • Liverpool vs Brighton: 3:00 pm
  • Southampton vs Everton: 3:00 pm
  • West Ham vs Wolves: 5:30 pm

Sunday 2nd October 2022

  • Manchester City vs Manchester United: 2:00 pm
  • Leeds vs Aston Villa: 4:30 pm

Monday 3rd October 2022

  • Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest: 8:00 pm

We certainly think they’re are a few fixtures to home in on here. Nottingham Forest have been leaking goals for fun as of late, and so have their opposition – Leicester City. This game should have goals from both sides, meaning midfield and attacking options may be beneficial to bring in.

West Ham United defenders should also be a safe bet. Wolverhampton Wanderers have just two goals this season and we can’t see them scoring at the London Stadium despite West Ham’s shocking league position.

In terms of fixtures to avoid, both the Manchester and North London derby are up in the air, so maybe avoid backing some of the bigger names in these games this weekend.

Our top picks for FPL Game Week 9

Here are some dead-set picks for Game Week 9 in Fantasy Premier League 22/23.


James Maddison

  • Position: Midfielder
  • Club: Leicester City
  • Price: £7.9 Million
  • GW9 Opponent: Nottingham Forest (H)

Despite Leicester’s shocking form, one man is shining through as a bright spark – James Maddison. He has three goals and one assist in six matches thus far, and with Forest’s leaky defence, he could certainly rack up some hefty points in GW9.


Vladimir Coufal

  • Position: Defender
  • Club: West Ham United
  • Price: £4.4 Million
  • GW9 Opponent: Wolves (H)

This may seem a ludicrous move given West Ham’s form, however, the Hammer’s next three games are Wolves, Fulham and Southampton – which are all very winnable with the chance of clean sheets. We’d suggest taking a punt at this terrific price for Vladimir Coufal.


Ivan Toney

Position: Forward
Club: Brentford
Price: £7.2 Million
GW9 Opponent: Bournemouth (A)

A man that’s appeared on the list of our top picks a few times so far during this FPL 22/23 season, but for good reason. Ivan Toney faces Bournemouth next and best believe he’ll probably be on that scoresheet once more.
