The Knee Jerk – Gameweek 1 – Saturday

A classic knee jerk in the making, Mohamed Salah owners were already fidgeting by half-time at Vicarage Road.

Fresh from four goals in pre-season, he had endured an inauspicious start to life back in the Premier League. A toe-poked skyward effort when through on goal, packaged up with several over miscues and errant first touches totalled a miserable first 45 minutes for Salah.

In contrast, Sadio Mane had sparkled and smartly converted Emre Can’s flick to peg back a plucky first half Watford showing.

Shifted to the left flank by Salah’s arrival, it looked as though Mane had adjusted to already demonstrate that he was back as the go-to guy among the opulence in Liverpool’s attack.

But things were to turn dramatically.

Just through sheer pace and endeavour, Salah first won a penalty via Heurelho Gomes’ clumsy telescopic arms and then sprinted to convert Roberto Firmino’s chipped effort from two yards out.

He ended on 11 points and was quickly installed as the top transfer target from those in action on the day.

He tallied five shots, all in the penalty area and eight touches in the box – more than any other midfielder in Gameweek 1 so far. Just as we expected, the statistics are Salah’s friend and will likely reinforce his case throughout the season.

Mane, who picked up a booking, was left trailing and, on today’s evidence, will clearly have his work cut out to justify his billing as the most expensive option in Jurgen Klopp’s armoury.

Owned by 23.5% to Salah’s 23.3%, that narrow gap is closing as Philippe Coutinho owners bail out, turning to the Egyptian as their replacement.

It is, of course, early days and it’s back at Anfield where Mane has previously been so potent.

Nine of his 13 goals arrived on Merseyside last season and he will have Crystal Palace in his sights for Gameweek 2.

Firmino also deserves our recognition. With Klopp relegating James Milner to his bench, the Brazilian was again on penalty duties and expertly converted following Salah’s tumble.

With the assist to follow, Firmino waltzed his way to the maximum bonus points, already benefiting from his new classification as a forward.

If Milner is to remain out of favour – presumably now discounted as a left-back – then Firmino will surely prosper.

Liverpool won eight penalties last season, with all but one converted by Milner. Firmino scored 11 goals regardless.

We have no reason to expect that Liverpool’s penalty count will regress. Indeed, with Salah adding his pace to Mane’s bursts, there’s every chance it will be maintained or even increased.

The conclusion is that Firmino’s stock is on the rise and that suddenly, Mane is in danger of slipping further down our Liverpool attack pecking order.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

    The guy who's currently number 1 has Lukaku on the bench, behind Cahill!

      Bonkers

      Assumed it was an auto pick ghost. But it can't be with that squad.

        And he's activated triple captain

    Is mounie on penalties/free kicks?

    1. Emp
      3 months, 11 days ago

      no mooy is

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      Lowe on pens and Mooy on set pieces

      1. The Tinkerman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Is Lowe really on pens? What's the evidence?

        1. The Tinkerman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          From what I can tell he has taken one penalty, and he missed it.

        2. The Tinkerman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Mooy seems to be on pens, the one Lowe has taken was after he himself was fouled, and as I said above he missed it.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Just going off the set pieces section and saw he had taken a lot in the previous season.

    3. Holmes
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Nope

    know this will seem knee jerky to people but im honestly cosidering gab and kaku to lac and firminho as i have 0.5 itb. And thats regardless of whether kaku scores a hattrick today. i think lac and kaku are similar options maybe goals a bit more spread in arsenal but they will score more as well. And firm looking a proper top pick taking set pieces now as well. Im disapointed i didnt consider lacazette more i feel like group think and fear has driven me to get kaku over any other reasons... bottom line there are a lot of premium strijer optiions out there who will all score similarly imo so why not go for the cheaper ones?

    1. Natkhat Chokra

      Gameweek 1 is not even over yet. RELAX!!

      1. Emp
        3 months, 11 days ago

        thats irrelevant i just said even if kaku scores a hattricj today i still think firminho and lac will yield more points in long run than kaku and 7.0 forward

        1. Dare2Zlatan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Just wildcard there so

        2. Natkhat Chokra
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I get your point but taking a hit right after the first gameweek is not advisable. Do it one at a time if you're really keen on it. Gabi has a decent fixture next; so keep him and boot Lukaku for Laca. The following gameweek, boot Gabbi for Firmino.

    2. Sims

      Hope u consider writing in paragraphs too

      1. Emp
        3 months, 11 days ago

        fair enough will consider that strongly 🙂

    3. CostaCoffee

      Don’t get rid of Jesus you will most definitely regret it

      1. Emp
        3 months, 11 days ago

        not getting rid of jesus? agreed there

        1. CostaCoffee

          Oops thought you meant gab Jesus

    4. Dare2Zlatan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      You'd sell Lukaku if he scores a hat trick playing Swansea next? Absolute nonsense

      1. Emp
        3 months, 11 days ago

        ok maybe thats an extreme example but i was trying to make a point

      2. Natkhat Chokra
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I'm not saying United won't tear them apart but Swansea looked more stubborn than WBA yesterday tbh. 29 shots and Southampton still couldn't break them down.

        1. GreenPL
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Agreed. I thought Swansea were pretty good defensively. Added Naughton to my watchlist.

      Step away from the phone / PC.

    6. Ghost Gooner
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Give yourself time to think it over once the games have played today.

      I feel I need to WC my team but will re-access after today's games

    7. bench boost for every gamew…
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Firmino quite an upgrade on Gabbi i think, but the reasoning is based on the expectation that Mourinho´s team does not score much, but one should remember Chelsea three years ago, pretty good at scoring so not entirely correct to assume they wil be lowscoring, and lukaku more nailed than Lac, with Giroud beeing a very good option from the bench and possibly rotating too. But it could work out as a double, Firmino have a lot higher ceiling than Gabbi. Anyway, wait for todays matches-)

    8. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Pathetic. Considering dumping Lukaku before he's even played and taking a hit after one GW.

      I'd quit now and save yourself the hassle.

  4. CostaCoffee
    3 months, 11 days ago

    I really need Lukaku to blank today and I think he will, otherwise my rank will suffer hugely

    1. Natkhat Chokra
      3 months, 11 days ago

      He will blank, cent percent.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      You don't really have a rank yet, the first GW isn't even over yet and many players are yet to play

      1. CostaCoffee
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah but I don’t really want to be chasing from the start

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          It is good to get a nice score in GW1 but I would hardly worry about 'chasing' ...

          How important is being in the top, say, 100k after GW 1?

        2. Holmes
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Chasing is better, it allows more green arrow 😛

          1. Natkhat Chokra
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I always like your thinking Holmes 🙂

    3. JustPark
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Same. Convincing but blank will do :smirk:

    4. bojack
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      He can blank today, it's unlikely he's going to score every week, but score he most certainly will in bucket loads.

      He'll be staying firmly in my squad 😉

    5. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      And i need him to get a brace

  5. FPL GUY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Didn't manage to catch any of the Huddersfield game - anyone that did, how did Ince look? Thanks

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Just caught the highlights. Mooy looks like he has a good delivery on him.

    2. bojack
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Ince had a good chance in the first half but snatched at if.

  6. Knuckles the one who Knocks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Bias aside, who is more likely to explode (not score I mean expose) today?

    A) Kane

    B) Lukaku

    1. Dare2Zlatan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B

    2. jarvish - Fashanu Zealand -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I hope Lukaku exposes

    3. CostaCoffee
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Kane

      1. CostaCoffee
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Oh didn’t read brackets.. Lukaku for sure

    4. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Lukaku will "bomb"!

      1. Lord - Salahmon Islands
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Is that after he exposes?

    5. Natkhat Chokra
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Hurrrrrrrrricane

  7. Dare2Zlatan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Any moves Ye would do or save FT?

    DDG (Elliot)
    Kolasinac Luiz Danillo Yoshida(Long)
    KDB Salah Willian Milivojevic (Carroll)
    Kane Lukaku(Quanar)

    1. Witty Pun
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Wait unless Danilo looks like a doubt

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Save FT bar DeGea or Kaku injury.....

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Or Kane 🙂

    3. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'd look at Milo (otherwise you have to play him (liv), Carroll (MUN) or risk Quaner)

    4. Dare2Zlatan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Think il play Milivojevic if I don't make any transfers.. Luiz is not enticing me!

  8. FALCAO & MOU
    3 months, 11 days ago

    To my fellow Batshuayi and Iwobi owners, I have this to say :
    We are dumb.

    1. Sims
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes you are

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Ozil / Ramsey were not supposed to feature. Wenger up to his usual. but yeah. Punty mc puntface.

  9. KAPTAIN KANE
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Would you consider doing the following after next gameweek?

    Jesus & Fraser
    To
    Aguero & 4.5m

    Already own T. Carroll but could go to RLC

    1. jarvish - Fashanu Zealand -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Bit early mate

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Give Jesus time?

    2. CostaCoffee
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No chance

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks Costa

    3. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Think RLC will face a lot of competition in Palace midfield. Won't be nailed on easy. Cabaye and McAethur only coming back and Milivo played just 45

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks Pieter, I'm just being stupid. This site is going to save me from making a lot of needless hits in the heat of the moment!

    4. Dimen
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Did you even watch the game? As an Aguero owner, I was hiding my head in the pillow. Jesus almost score so many times. Aguero was basically invisible until the goal, but I guess thats what makes him great. Still, I would even consider Aguero -> Jesus after that game if I didn't have other transfers to make.

    5. Rajveer
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Don't do it..Jesus could have easily scored a brace yesterday.. And Fraser is much better than any 4.5 out there...I own both in fact and gonna keep them for sure..

  10. Skull And Gnomes
    3 months, 11 days ago

    If you owned Milner would you be shipping him now or wait another game or two?

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Wouldnt have taken him in the first place, but Id downgrade him already yeah

    2. Our Tiny Servant
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Ha. Exactly.

    3. jarvish - Fashanu Zealand -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'm waiting for now

      1. Skull And Gnomes
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I agree. Let's see what the manager does with him in the next game. GL!

  11. Our Tiny Servant
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    I feel like Milner is a poor use of 6.5mill if he's gonna sit on the bench and isn't on pens. Would anyone say Milner to Cedric is a good swap out? I'd like to find more money for my midfield anyway, after a humbling reminder that clean sheets are rare.

    1. CostaCoffee
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Sounds good

    2. BrockLanders
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Good chance Milner will start on Tuesday in Europe, whether he'll replace Moreno next week remains to be seen..

    3. Lord - Salahmon Islands
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I suspect he's still on pens when he's on the pitch. he seems to think so.

    4. noquarternt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      He isn't nailed, costs a lot and Liverpool don't keep cleansheets. Is there any argument to own him?

      1. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        +1

    5. Beatle
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Good swap regardless

  12. G-Whizz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Seeing a few Iwobi posts. If you have him would you consider a short-term replacement in Harry Wink?

    Gives you £0.5m in your sky rocket too...

    1. Sims
      3 months, 11 days ago

      You'd have thought the iwobi owners would have learned their lesson by now....

      1. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        😆

    2. Siggy in the Middle
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'd pick someone who's actually nailed or else it's a sideways move if I had Iwobi.

      1. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        True, wasn't thinking long-term...

    3. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Mooy / Brunt - or at least someone with attacking intent

      1. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Great shout, Mooy looked good, nice fixtures to come and Brunt takes corners and free kicks I thnk.

  13. graham2806
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Started with

    Pickford, Elliot
    Alonso, Van Aanholt, Danilo, Bailly, Marriapa
    De Bruyne, Mane, Salah, Carroll, Brady
    Lukaku, Gabbiadini, Mounie

    I've swapped Van Aanholt for Hegazi (gives me fund and Palace look terrible defensively)

    I'm looking at getting rid of Gabbiadini + Danilo, replacing them with Yoshida + a striker.

    Is 3 liverpool players a good idea? Thinking of Firmino. If not, any good shouts for a striker? Can't afford Kane, Aguero, Jesus, Lacazette and Morata)

    1. Skull And Gnomes
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Mane and Salah are enough surely.

      The transfers you are making are spot on imo.

      1. Skull And Gnomes
        3 months, 11 days ago

        But I would advise no Saints defenders, others will say the opposite.

  14. Hotdogs for Tea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    How important is being in the top, say 100k, after GW 1 to gaining a great end of season OR?

    1. Sims
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Absolutely 100% irrelevant

      1. Lord - Salahmon Islands
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Agreed. Even if OR wasnt being distorted by the newbies playing with their chips.

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          This.

          Wasn't till the final DGW last season when last of the serious players used their TC or BB, that we knew where we really stood.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Yip, I jumped 700k in the last 3 GWs last season - boy was i in a bad place though lol

    2. CostaCoffee
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I was around 230k at Christmas last year and still got 3k so doesn’t really matter but would be helpful

      1. Sims
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Same

    3. Fitzy.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      About the first time I've ever agreed with Sims. GW1 rank means very little.

    4. jarvish - Fashanu Zealand -…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      (1/38)*100%

      1. Hotdogs for Tea

        BB, TC and other chips? .... 1/45 maybe 😉

      Not that important, but is a good start if you did.

    7. Lord Flashheart (sportsguy)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      you need to be top 200k after 10gws
      top 100K after 20gws
      top 10k after 30gwa
      top 2000 at the end

      everything more than that is luck

      1. Sims
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Was 230k in week 22

        Finished top 4k

    8. Ghost Gooner
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I was 1,3m gw 5 and made top 2500

    9. potatoBoyde
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not important in the slightest

  15. Knuckles the one who Knocks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Does anyone have this funny feeling that West Ham will up their fane defensively this year?

    Just think with Fonte, Zabaletta and Hart having chance to get prea season they could surprise people

    1. FortunesAlwaysHiding

      Sadly no

      1. Doosra - ☭Bolivia Giroud…

      Cresswell if they're alright. Have a feeling they wont be though.

    3. Limbo

      Too slow for my liking.

  16. Too Mane Men

    Ake getting bonus without a clean sheet, assist or goal should be getting more focus. Get him in your teams!

      3 months, 11 days ago

      He's in mine. I can smell a haul against Watford. Silva's Hull was pretty bad away from home too and they do have some defensive issues.

      1. The Tinkerman

          Hopefully. With Ake I'm looking more at attacking returns.

      Hadn't noticed. Impressive.

      Got him already, couldn't believe the bonus! Still hopeful of returns.

        Same here. What a guy.

        Yeah it has, looks like if Bournemouth concede he is a threat still

    4. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I went Daniels to cover the ownership and because he is more attacking

      1. Legomané
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Sad times

      2. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Daniels is not more attacking. Got more points last season because Ake came late and didn't play that many matches.

      Thanks! Can't believe my defence used to have Cedric and Ake.

    United defence is so highly owner in all my MLs.

    Their CS are really going to hurt me don't know how long my Soton boys can keep getting those CS!

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Can see Soton conceding vs West Ham to be honest... and got two of them myself

      1. Karan14 - (Balegium)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yea but Stephens and Bertrand both have good attacking threat and I wouldn't rule out a clean sheet.

    2. Lord - Salahmon Islands
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Southampton have great fixtures until GW12, and with their front line they are going to need those cleanies.

      1. Karan14 - (Balegium)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I have Gabbiadini and double Soton defence.

        If Gabbiadini fails again I'll be looking to free up some money on him and try to get a United defender hopefully Lindelof becomes an option.

        1. Lord - Salahmon Islands
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Lack of trust in Gabbi (and not believing the pre-season stats for Mounie) is what prompted me to go for Firminio as 3rd striker. And with those fixtures I think Forster is a better bet than DDG, and that doubling up is the way to go. I will probably get a Utd def when Kompany gets injured, but I'm not sure about Lindelhof. Good luck.

  18. Legomané
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Anyone who caught the pool match, how did Gini Wijnaldum look? Punted on him this week ahead of Fabregas in the end (phew) but keen to hear how he performed. Cheers.

    1. Pete Price Is A Lizard
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Looked knackered mate and was limping abit in th second half avoid for now.

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Put himself about a bit... All in all though, there will be better picks.

      1. Legomané
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Worth a switcheroo before CPL?

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Don't know the rest of your team, but if he is your weak link, I probably would.
          I'm in similar boat. My Walters punt didn't come off, so will be looking for someone on that bracket too.

    3. Warning Hazard ahead
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Playing quite defensive, no real goal threat. Similar role to Fabregas minus clapping the ref and then getting sent off.

    4. FALCAO & MOU
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I watched the first half, wasn't anywhere near box. Salah was always First on the other hand.

  19. Pete Price Is A Lizard
    3 months, 11 days ago

    i know it's early days so I'm just brainstorming transfers for next GW which one would you choose?

    A) Iwobi > Albrighton

    B) Alonso > Kompany (bank £1m)

    1. MTPockets
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Don't think I'd do either. Leicester's next 5 fixtures not great, and Alonso probably worth keeping (although I don't have him).

      1. Pete Price Is A Lizard
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Well ok but I'm not feeling Iwobi will be getting much game time so I'll be getting rid of him for the likes of Mooy or Brunt who take set pieces and are nailed on

  20. Warning Hazard ahead
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Thoughts on Zaha&Gabbiadini to Ward-Prowse&Firmino?

    Or bank FT?

    1. potatoBoyde
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Take your finger off that zaha button

      1. Warning Hazard ahead
        3 months, 11 days ago

        IE. Keep Zaha? I just worry when Palace can't score against Huddersfield haha.

        1. potatoBoyde
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 11 days ago

          He was unlucky. The goals will come.

          1. Warning Hazard ahead
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Awesome, thank you. Didn't see the game if I'm honest.

    I have lukaku captain but I expect the biggest troll moment of his career today. Home league debut with half the fantasy world riding on his shoulders. It is his time :
    To Troll.

    1. potatoBoyde
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yep.
      Manu+ lukaku= troll x 100

      1. FALCAO & MOU
        3 months, 11 days ago

        - * - is plus, I think he won't troll.

    2. Siggy in the Middle
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I forgot about how much of a troll he is. I feel slightly less confident captaining him now.

      You know someone's struggling when they pick Matic!

      1. Lord - Salahmon Islands
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Nothing wrong with Matic. He picks up a lot of assists for a defensive mid.

    Warning from seasons yore.

    Be brutal in GW2.

    Don't hold onto miracle points. WBA / Saints need to be very closely watched. I've held onto players at the start after a single haul even though tactically it was daft - it's a terminal nostalgia. The first few GWs are notoriously good at killing early Banwagons

    Hegazi is the perfect example. I'm benching him for Mee this week.
