Team of the Season – Luis Suarez

Suspended for the first five matches of 2013/14 after an infamous altercation with Branislav Ivanovic, Luis Suarez was handed an 11.0 price tag in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game after serving up 23 goals, 10 assists and 34 bonus points in his first season under Brendan Rodgers:

The Statistics

In the Uruguayan’s absence, Daniel Sturridge had stepped up for the Merseysiders and scored in four of the opening five fixtures but the Reds were clearly struggling without Suarez and had averaged just one goal per game prior to his first appearance of the season.

Partnering Sturridge up front as Rodgers changed his tactics to accommodate both through the middle, Suarez set the tone for what was to follow with a 13-point return away to Sunderland, courtesy of a two goals and maximum bonus points in a 3-1 win. Three double-figure hauls in his first four matches underlined the strength of Suarez’ armband potential and saw many squads re-arranged in order to acquire his talents – with Sturridge still producing the goods, though, snapping up both became a popular tactic for our three-man frontlines.

Suarez’ exploits over December will be long-remembered by Fantasy managers. Starting off with four goals and an assist in a 5-1 win over Norwich, he delivered 77 points in only four appearances, with two goals and three assists in a 5-0 win at Spurs ultimately leading to Andre Villas-Boas’ dismissal.

Whilst Suarez’ 13 double figure returns were indicative of his explosive potential, his level of consistency was equally impressive. Serving up a goal or assist in 27 of his 33 league starts for Liverpool, he was relentless in picking up the points and did not deliver back-to-back blanks all season.

Ending the campaign with 30 goals, 25 assists and 40 bonus points, Suarez’ produced 295 points in the FPL game – his incredible average of 8.9 points per game was far superior to the previous season’s top scorer, Robin Van Persie, who managed 6.9 ppg. Owned by over 51% of FPL managers by the time the campaign drew to a close, the Uruguayan finished 54 points ahead of second placed Yaya Toure and at least 90 points ahead of any team-mate in Rodgers’ free-scoring side.

The Prospects

In terms of price, Suarez will surely be the most expensive option on offer across the Fantasy games next time around. Most anticipate a shift between 13.0 and 14.0 in FPL – in fairness, a true reflection of the quality of his Fantasy performances – though such a high cost won’t deter those who feel that owning Suarez simply affords a peace of mind and takes away the hassle of selecting a captain in any given Gameweek.

For consistency of starts, Suarez has also been second-to-none amongst premium price options. He’s been named in the first XI in every league game he has been available for under Rodgers and, unlike Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero and Daniel Sturridge, has only missed out through suspension. It’s a factor that is also in his favour when taking the Reds’ Champions League duties into consideration – Sturridge’s propensity for picking up knocks and niggles could potentially pose problems for his owners, given that he started only 15 of the final 27 Gameweeks due to injury last time round.

There’s a chance Suarez’ price rise may persuade others to consider more budget-friendly alternatives, though with Rodgers looking to strengthen further, Liverpool’s attack-minded style of play is always going to serve up chances aplenty. Going without the Uruguayan would be a risky tactic if he can maintain his momentum, though Suarez’ fitness will be keenly monitored over the summer after he underwent minor knee surgery yesterday, with fears it may have a knock-on effect on his pre-season sharpness.

Elsewhere in the premium bracket, whilst Aguero’s continual injuries will persuade many to steer clear, Louis Van Gaal’s arrival at United could bring Van Persie and Rooney into contention for those determined to overlook Suarez. Certainly, a lack of European action for the Old Trafford outfit suggests that there will be less requirement for rest and rotation, whilst a recent tactical change from 4-3-3 to 5-3-2 for Holland will harbour hopes that both Van Persie and Rooney will be handed central roles up top for United as the new man in charge aims for the title in his first season at the helm.

          We all can 🙂 well if he would be 5.0 then that would be the best goalkeeper choice around (unless they get a new one), 5.5 would probably put most off him.

          I think Chambers , if he nails down a spot has a good chance of being cheap

            Actually this part was expected, they always had the chance to appeal and the whole thing was conveniently timed for them that the next decision can be reached sometimes at the end of the summer or something like that.

            In any case I expect them to get away with it. The FFP rules will be a bit like Animal farm...some are more even then others.

    I thought Van Gaal was trying to keep United's young players. Surprised to see Barmby leave after the good loan spell he had with Hartlepool. Talk of Michael Keane wanting to leave as well.

    Will be interesting to note how Van Gaal uses Januzaj as part of the team next season.

      Depends on attitudes. Van Gaal wants young guys that want to work for the team, not ones that may have bad attitudes. I don't know if that's the case here but seems possible.

          There really doesn't have to be any truth at all. That's the point of the transfer window, journalists make stuff up.

          Regarding Kroos, here's a guy who will ditch his team for more money in a heart beat (mercenary), is that the kind of player United really need right now? Rooney is already a massive mercenary, why bring in more?

            Not to say he isn't fantastic but realistically it depends what Van Gaal has in mind and how much of this reported deal actually happened.

      McCarthy is a lot cheaper, and will work a lot harder, for much less wages.

      Kroos is a CAM who won't track back as much as McCarthy and he'll have a much bigger ego.

      What's the problem? 🙂

              He's a favourite of mine and I would have said relative to McCarthy he tracks less.

              Second of all, I don't actually think he was ever going to come to United, very hard to know what is substance and what was fabricated.

              He's got a fantastic attack mind but it depends, if they grabbed up a better defensive CM to play alongside him then not really but they need to sign someone like that.

              As above, I think most of this was fabricated. Kroos himself had said United isn't and never was an issue.

          I don't know Tony Kroos at all personally, I don't know James McCarthy either, but one player is playing hard ball with Bayern Munich over more money, whereas the other came from Ireland, to Wigan, to Everton, and would treat United as a step up as opposed to a step down like Kroos would (Bayern to United is a step down, Everton to United is a step up).

          Also I'd imagine (haven't checked) that Kroos would demand more wages than McCarthy.

          I can't say for certain but I've watched McCarthy play for years now and he works hard from CM, Kroos tends to disappear sometimes when his team has to defend, or at least he has whenever I've watched him.

          Plus the money saved on McCarthy instead of Kroos would be invested elsewhere.

            The only thing I can really say is factually wrong here is that he actually came from Scotland 😉

            I would have thought him more defensive than Kroos too although if the Kroos deal had a chance of happening I think they could have signed both of then, I think the whole Kroos thing was warped by the media though.

            Goes without saying. I know some think it wrong to slate St. Brendan but I feel there was a bit too much pride there. He spent big money on Sakho and had to justify it. Not sure why that came at expense of Agger mind... He doesn't seem to like players that could leave the team, he booted Reina as soon as he said he'd like to return to Barcelona one day (another big mistake in my opinion).

      Chelsea dont want or need to sell so it will have to be a big offer.

      I dont want to see him leave but every player has a price.

      Same with Hazard and Oscar who PSG want. I want them to stay but if they offer £80m for Hazard and £50m for Oscar they can have them imo.

        i think they should sell still if the offer is 30+. he's effectively a back up in his main position, that's a great deal, a bit like mata an easy sell in that sense.
        think hazard (apart from newly signed guys like matic) is the least likely player to go anywhere

          Agree re: Hazard i was merely trying to say that every player has a price.

          Personally I wouldnt want Luiz to leave, he is a brilliant CB, a very good DM and an option even at RB. I think the criticism he gets from people over here is massively OTT. all CBs make mistakes. He makes up for his mistakes with unbelievable distribution and gets the odd goal too plus I think he is a great team player too. Looks a lot better when he plays with JT I would have to say though.

          He is also Thiago Silva's partner for brazil at CB so I would wait until after the world cup as he looks brilliant when he plays with him also so his value will only go up. I think with todays ridiculously inflated market he is worth at least £40m.
