Beat the experts: In-form Robertson adds another assist

Liverpool left-back top scores for experts' team and is now level with team-mate Alexander-Arnold for FPL assists

How did you do against the Fantasy Premier League experts in Gameweek 9?

The FPL Experts Panel team is run by some of the best Fantasy managers in the world.

For the first time in five attempts the team managed to climb the rankings. In a low-scoring week, their 37 points was exactly the Gameweek 9 average.

Robertson delivers again

Andrew Robertson (£6.9m) was the team's top scorer with eight points.

The Liverpool defender provided an assist and collected the maximum three bonus points in their 1-1 draw at Manchester United.

It was Robertson’s third assist of the season, equalling team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m). 

Once again, though, the experts were left frustrated by their chosen captain.

Captain woes continue

They joined over 850,000 FPL managers in handing the armband to Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) for Chelsea's home match against Newcastle United.

But Abraham's blank was the the sixth time this season the experts' captain has failed to score or assist.

Vice-captain Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) earned five points thanks to his first assist of 2019/20 in Manchester City’s win at Crystal Palace.

The absence of Sterling's team-mate Nicolas Otamendi (£5.6m), along with Mohamed Salah (£12.4m), meant the experts were reliant on their substitutes. 

Bench points

Popular budget defender John Lundstram (£4.6m) and Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) duly obliged, emerging from the bench to supply a combined eight points.

However, the experts' score could have been better if they hadn't transferred out Lucas Digne (£6.0m) for Caglar Soyuncu (£4.7m).

Everton's Digne earned six points with his first clean sheet since Gameweek 2, while Soyuncu claimed only two points in Leicester City's 2-1 win over Burnley.

Join to beat them

Since a Gameweek-3 high of 224,897 the team has fallen to 2,258,312 in the overall standings, and is ranked 27,136 out of 42,594 teams in the "Beat the FPL Panel" mini-league.

Darren Hyett moves a point ahead of Lewis Robson at the top of the table with an above average score of 46 points.

The Man Utd fan had three Man City players to thank as Sterling, Bernardo Silva (£7.9m), and captain Kevin De Bruyne (£10.1m) combined for 17 points. Darren is up to 23rd in the overall standings.

Managers who want to take on the panel should enter the private classic league: "Beat the FPL Panel".
