 fantasy premier league lineups – potential premier league lineups for GW8

These are my predicted lineups for gameweek 8. These should become more accurate the further into the season we get. Currently I seem to be getting around 90% of players correct each week. There are also a list of injured players for each club and their expected return dates.

Key: Two players separated by a / means I’m unsure which of the two will start. A player in grey means there is a potential chance they may start instead of the player in white.
