GW9 Kings to watch: Ben Chilwell

The Scout 20 Oct 2021

The Scout says Chelsea defender's attacking potential and fixtures can reward new owners in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 9 of 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League.

Ben Chilwell (CHE) £5.7m

Managers in Fantasy have flocked to the Chelsea defender following his return to the starting XI recently.

Chilwell failed to play a single minute in the first six Gameweeks, with Marcos Alonso (£5.9m) preferred as the Blues’ left wing-back.

But the England star has now started back-to-back matches.

Chilwell has seized his opportunity, scoring against Southampton and Brentford to total 23 points in the last two Gameweeks.

As a result, he is the most-bought defender for Gameweek 9, and second most-bought overall, earning 177,000+ new owners.

Chelsea’s very favourable short-term schedule gives Chilwell the chance to immediately reward those investors.

Thomas Tuchel's side face each of the bottom three clubs, Norwich City, Newcastle United and Burnley, in the next three Gameweeks.

That suggests Chelsea can add to their total of five clean sheets, which is second only to the six of Manchester City.


The underlying numbers also strengthen Chilwell's potential for attacking returns.

His five shots in the box and three key passes were team-leading totals in the last two Gameweeks.

Chilwell also compares well when assessed against other defenders this season.

Indeed, his four shots on target are joint-top in his position in Fantasy, despite only playing two matches.

Combined with his prospects for clean sheets, Chilwell can repay his new backers with more big hauls over the coming Gameweeks.
