Buy, Sell, or Hold – FPL Gameweek 9

Player to Buy – Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.9m)

Callum Hudson-Odoi, or Cho as I like to call him, is back playing full-time football and I am extremely excited for him and all FPL managers. This man can be a force in FPL and I think now is the time to buy!

Since returning from a ruptured achillies injury, Cho has played in 2 matches and contributed 2 assists for Chelsea. His performances have been solid and I predict Lampard will keep the faith with the young winger.

Lampard has given the young stars on Chelsea plenty of time this season so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Hudson-Odoi was a consistent starter. At £5.9m and only 1.3% ownership I really think Callum is a great differential option with low risk.

His talent is raw, but the next few GW’s should entice managers even more.

Chelsea are slowly figuring out their identity and with players like Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount leading the team, look for Cho to really flourish.

Honorable mentions – Jamie Vardy (£9.0), Aaron Connolly (£4.5)

Players to Sell – Manchester United

It’s no secret that United are in a really tough spot at the moment.

The club is ravaged by injuries and lacks depth to have any chance at redeeming themselves. On top of that, there are rumbles of a manager change and players seem disengaged altogether.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has proclaimed that transfers are on their way in January and next summer, but the team right now is simply not good enough. It’s a sad sight for players and fans alike, as the club has too many problems to fix right now.

Sell all United assets while you can. The current squad list below –

The upcoming schedule for United is also going to be difficult as Liverpool (H), Norwich (A), and Bournemouth (A) will try to capitalise on their poor form.
Player to Hold – Raúl Jiménez (£7.1m)

Wolves are back! Two consecutive victories have me very keen on Wolves players at the moment and in particular, Raúl Jiménez.

The Mexican is coming off an impressive game against City where he assisted both goals in the match. The result in it’s own right is impressive, but Raul looked great all game, creating chances for teammates and himself.

At £7.1m, I only suggest to hold onto him for the time being. He did not join Mexico during the International Break, which means he is well rested and should be 100% for this weekend.

The upcoming schedule for Wolves looks good as well. The issue this season with his form has been the inclusion of Europa League matches, which makes it difficult for a team like Wolverhampton to keep up in the EPL.

The amount of games to be played makes it difficult to stay in form, but when Jimenez starts producing he tends to keep the momentum going.

Honorable mentions – Erik Pieters (£4.8), Josh King (£6.3)
