Our Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 9 forwards round-up is here to help you anticipate where the goals might come from in this weekend’s fixtures! You know, apart from the obvious.

While our tips are based on FPL player prices, the principles should apply pretty much across the board – so even if your fantasy football game lies at Sky Sports, the Telegraph, the Mirror or anywhere else, stick around.


Okay, let’s get our tips out…

Graziano Pellè, Southampton – £8.1m

Two goals in the 8-0 win over Sunderland made it six in eight for the freshly capped Italian international, and this weekend’s home game against Stoke City is a great chance to keep the run going.

Romelu Lukaku, Everton – £9m

It’s three goals in five games for the Toffees’ record signing after his goal in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa, so he’ll be confident of another at Burnley on Sunday.

Just keep an eye on Everton’s Europa League tie at Lille on Thursday for an indication of whether or not Lukaku is likely to start at Turf Moor.

Diafra Sakho, West Ham United – £5.6m

The Senegalese has now scored in four consecutive games, and he’ll fancy his chances against a Manchester City defence that looked less than convincing even in beating Spurs 4-1.

Eduardo Vargas, Queens Park Rangers – £6.4m

Needed just 12 minutes as a substitute to score twice in the 2-3 defeat to Liverpool, so surely he’ll start Monday night’s game at home to struggling Aston Villa.

Wilfried Bony, Swansea City – £8.2m

The Swans host an out-of-form Leicester City on Saturday, with last season’s top scorer Bony aiming to score for a third consecutive game.
