Scout Notes – Salah and Vardy Shine Again

Fantasy Premier League’s (FPL) leading light delivers from his single match of Double Gameweek 34, while strikers with two matches start the week well and Crystal Palace assets stake their claim for berths in Free Hit squads.

Mohamed Salah was named in Liverpool’s starting line-up having been sold by 112,000+ owners before yesterday’s deadline.

The Egyptian had also suffered an exodus of 302,000+ prior to his absence from the Merseyside derby last weekend.

Despite all that, and the fact that he had just a single fixture against Bournemouth in Gameweek 34, he remained the top captain pick, with the backing of just over a million managers (18.3%).

Only three of FPL’s top 100 teams handed Salah the armband, weighing up the chances of Salah outscoring the likes of Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku in one match, compared to the duo’s doubles, and coming down in favour of the two premium forwards.

All of Liverpool’s front three started on Saturday and all three scored in a full-strength line-up that brushed aside Bournemouth 3-0.

Collectively, Salah and Roberto Firmino had been sold by over a million managers (1,095692) over the last two Gameweeks, but they returned eight points apiece against the Cherries, with the Brazilian awarded two bonus to bump up his haul.

Whether that will prove enough for those who kept faith in the pair above players with a Double Gameweek remains to be seen, but it did mean that Salah has now scored or assisted in eight successive home matches, and in eight of his last nine Gameweek starts overall.

The Reds’ trip to West Brom in Gameweek 35’s reduced schedule should ensure sales involving all of their assets is put on hold for now, with Salah already the third most bought player ahead of next weekend.

And should coach Jurgen Klopp continue to field a strong side despite the approaching Champions League semi-final, selling on Salah might well remain risky business.

The situation is rather more confused regarding Firmino, however, with roughly equal amounts of managers currently buying him in and selling him off for Gameweek 35.

But the focus yesterday was very much on Salah, with the entire team seemingly determined to help him in his quest for the Golden Boot.

The excellent Trent Alexander-Arnold ended up being the one to provide the assist for the Egyptian’s goal and the four chances he created on the day is more than any other defender in the Gameweek to date.

Salah’s sublime header was one of six attempts he mustered, a Gameweek-leading total he shared with Sadio Mane, who has produced in six of his last seven Gameweeks (four goals and three assists).

Alexander-Arnold’s attacking display was further burnished by a clean sheet and maximum bonus points – his first of the season – for a 12-point return.

The Reds’ rearguard have now managed three shut-outs in four Gameweeks, and six in the last 10, to reward the 8.5% of managers who stuck by Andrew Robertson and the 7.3% on Virgil van Dijk.

Bournemouth, rather predictably, failed to provide any real resistance – it’s nine matches without a clean sheet for them, and they have just one from their last 21 Gameweeks ahead of Man United’s visit on Wednesday.

Mixed bag for Burnley…

Business in Burnley’s defence for their Double Gameweek 34 (LEI CHE) was brisk, with 266,000+ managers bringing in a member of their backline.

But their 2-1 win over the Foxes meant they’ve kept just one clean sheet in 12 Gameweeks now.

At least the 72,000+ who made Kevin Long the Clarets’ most popular defensive pick for the double cashed in when he scored his first goal of the season. Two bonus points handed them a double-digit haul to go with the assist and five points accrued last week.

Up front, Chris Wood (2.8%) scored for the second match running and now has five goals and an assist from his last five Gameweeks.

But he needed two attempts to net yesterday, which denied Ashley Barnes’ 5.0% ownership an assist.

That made it two successive blanks for the forward, who was also booked for a late challenge on Kasper Schmeichel which could keep the Leicester goalkeeper out of his side’s second fixture in their double, at home to Southampton on Thursday.

It’s unclear whether Wood and Barnes will be retained for their own Thursday night fixture at home to Chelsea.

Sam Vokes was given only a five-minute run-out yesterday, although he did score twice against the Blues in Gameweek 1’s 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge.

…and Leicester too

Schmeichel was bought by 23,000+ for Leicester’s Double Gameweek 34, but that figure paled before the 246,580 who opted for Jamie Vardy.

The striker was second only to Kane for transfers-in, and he was also handed the armband by 225,269 (4%), who were suitably rewarded with his fourth goal in as many matches.

Vardy now has eight strikes in 10 starts and will fancy his chances of adding to that total when Southampton visit. They are, after all, a side that has conceded three goals per match for four straight Gameweeks.

The 27.1%-owned forward had five shots – all in the box – against Burnley, which is more than any other player in the Gameweek so far.

Riyad Mahrez was rather less impressive for his 13.7% ownership, failing to produce for a third straight match.

He had been picked up 59,000+ new owners but is currently the most sold player ahead of a Gameweek 35 blank.

Marc Albrighton was another to enjoy an uptake in ownership, with 30,004 new managers. He was promptly benched, as Demarai Gray and Shinji Okazaki started.

Kelechi Innehacho then replaced the latter at half-time as Leicester’s attacking line-up, Vardy and Mahrez aside, remains somewhat fluid.

What is more settled is the Foxes’ lack of clean sheets – they’ve managed just one of those in nine Gameweeks now.

Royal returns at Palace

The lack of a Double Gameweek 34 didn’t deter investment in Crystal Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic (11.4%), and he treated his 124,000 new managers to another fine display.

The Serbian international produced his first two assists of the season to take him to three goals and two assists from his last four Gameweeks.

Two bonus brought in nine points in the 3-2 win over Brighton, and his last four Gameweek hauls now read: 10, 9, 10, 9.

His long-term form is equally impressive, with eight goals from his last 15 Gameweek starts before yesterday’s match.

Palace’s schedule (wat LEI stk WBA), which includes a fixture in Gameweek 35, is strong enough to suggest that Milivojevic might well retain his owners despite the lack of two fixtures in Gameweek 37. He will certainly be a target for those activating the Free Hit chip ahead of Gameweek 35.

That also applies to the star of the show yesterday: winger Wilfried Zaha.

Only 18,125 picked him up this week, despite a goal against Bournemouth last time out.

Zaha scored twice against the Seagulls for a season-best 14 points and has now returned in four of his last five appearances (three goals, two assists) to prove an effective differential for his 4.9% ownership.

He fired five shots on goal, three of which came in the box, as he and Andros Townsend were again preferred up front despite Christian Benteke’s return to fitness, although the Belgian was introduced from the bench late on.

Brighton rocked

The Seagulls’ schedule (TOT bur MUN mci liv) meant that they needed to take something from their trip to Palace.

They got two goals and a spirited performance, but that horrendous run-in leaves them considerably more vulnerable than they would like.

Glenn Murray ended a run of three Gameweeks without a goal as Brighton twice reduced a two-goal deficit yesterday.

Found in 434,000+ squads, he was the side’s most popular Gameweek 34 signing, claiming 41,000+ new owners.

Lewis Dunk claimed the assist for Murray’s goal – his second attacking return of the season to reward his modest 9,000 Double Gameweek investors – but it’s now four blanks in a row for the popular Pascal Gross (17.2%).

Jose Izquierdo, from a Jurgen Locadia assist, scored the visitors’ other goal – his fifth of the season. He now has three goals and an assist from his last nine Gameweeks.

Things have been considerably less productive at the back, with no clean sheets in 12 matches.

Goalkeeper Mat Ryan (3.6%) had to make do with a single save point at Selhurst Park and looks unlikely to secure a shut-out against Spurs on Tuesday either.

Brighton can only hope the visitors will have more than an eye on Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final with Man United as the south coast outfit are again being pulled into the relegation mire.

And finally…

Huddersfield’s last-gasp 1-0 win at home to Watford boosted the Terrier’s survival prospects, while doing little for most Fantasy managers.

Only seven midfielders have had more attempts than Tom Ince’s 67 this season, but his winner yesterday was only his second league goal of the campaign.

Centre-back Zanka was the unlikely source of the assist as Watford came within seconds of keeping a first away clean sheet since Gameweek 25.

    Plan until end of the season:

    FH35
    GW36: Roll FT
    TC37: Mini WC (3-4 transfers)
    GW38: Depends what will happen at GW37

    🙂

      Seems solid. I’m hoping to get through this week (57 with 13 to play). No FH but can get XI with a fixture next week without a hit (Alonso permitting) and then 9 DGW players in 37. Fingers crossed in 38 haha

      1. arndff_

        Just seen your team, so I could tell you that you’re in a good position.

    Play a fun game of “who sold Salah” by looking at who is talking about Liverpool rotation a day after they played and six days before they next play...

    1. theodosios
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah, Salah an co. wont play in GW35 coz they need 10 days without any football to be prepared for CL semis

      • Going Home
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Also a lot of them are the same people complaining that people who “planned” for the DGW got shafted whereas those of us who planned to have some SGW players “got lucky”...

        My ML rival wasted his WC 10 GWs ago and bench-boosted with just 1 DGW player. LOL, oh wait....

              Yeh. That last minute assist from Hudd's genius playmaker, Zanka, was really the icing on the cake.

            I don’t like he idea that playing a WC other than in the last 6/7 weeks is “wasting” it. There are different ways to play the game.

            But yeah, that Zanka assist would bite hard!

          5 months, 8 days ago

          maybe obvious but if i FH today and I can still make changes to it during the week without any penalty before next deadline? Same principle as a WC but just for this 1 week?

          1. Going Home
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Correct

            RMFH:

            Karius
            Lowton - Tomkins - Baines
            Zaha - Sterling - KDB - Salah
            Firmino - Jesus - Auba

            Bench: Maenpaa, Mili, Mariappa, Bauer

            I'm going to regret benching Mili, aren't I?

              Not keen on Karius, I'd back West Brom to score at home although still lose.

                Who would you back to keep a CS?
                City potentially, but I want to triple up on their attack

            Ugh, bottomed...

            Which two Man City players (def or mids only please) do people think are most secured of starts/returns from now until the end of the season.

            Any precedent from Pep regarding squad rotation once the league is won

                Sterling and KDB

                KDB and Walker maybe. Kompany also

                I think Ota probably quite nailed now. Had his rest so should be good until the end of the season

              May seem extremely obvious, but best way to maximise the Free Hit Chip is to fill your bench with absolute fodder right?

                • 6 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Playing fodder incase you have no shows in your 11.

                Long (Bur - 4.0), Kenedy etc seem perfect for this....

                  This! And a 3.9 keeper is fine

                • 3 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Need a couple of decent benchers, Milly & Long

                1. Jafooli

                  • 6 Years
                  5 months, 8 days ago

                  Milo is a big hitter starter 😉

                Typically. But with AFC and LFC playing UEL and UCL, I’m concerned about players being rested. See LFC XI for derby and AFC’s XI this morning. For this reason, I’ll have at least two that are cheap but nailed on my bench.

                • 4 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Go with KDB, Sanchez, Alonso and DDG on the bench.

                Show ‘em who is boss.

              5. Ajax Hamsterdam

              Reckon Otamendi, Sterling & Sane are fairly nailed on for GW35?

                • 3 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Might go Kompany

                      Otamendi to start?

                    The Otter should play, Sterling should play.

                    Sané most at risk

                        Depends what formation Pep decides to play.

                        In a back 3 he’s nailed, with how much more solid they were when he came on, I’d say he’s fairly likely to start.

                        Laporte, Kompany, Stones, Otter all competing with each other though

                      lol I’d say no 😉

                      3 for this set of fixtures until the next set of games

                      DDG, Pogba, Lukaku TC

                  Who are people taking from Arsenal in their Free hit team then? Aubameyang is a definite but are they too risky to go for in midfield?

                    Cech and Auba in my team (no FH). Wouldn’t feel comfortable with any others

                      If you wanna risk, maybe Iwobi

                      I have Bellerin in my current set up. Today’s squad has me concerned, but I would be surprised if Wenger trotted this team out for a London derby. Then again, look what Klopp did for their derby.

                      Hoping Wenger just sees today as a good opportunity to give 10 days rest to a group of players that he’ll lean heavy on for WHU/Atleti/MU/Atleti.

                              Not considering budget, who is the best defender/mid from each team for GW 35?
                              Didn't bother listing strikers because most of them are straightforward.

                              WBA: Nothing to see here
                              Liverpool: Robertson / Salah

                              Watford: Mariappa (I'd go for Kiko but he's a 60th minute substitution risk) / Pereyra
                              Palace: PvA / Zaha (or Mili)

                              Arsenal: Mustafi / Iwobi
                              West Ham: Masuaku / Arnie

                              Stoke: Bauer / Shaqiri
                              Burnley: Lowton / Gudmundsson

                              Man City: Undecided (Walker / Kompany / Otamendi) / Sterling (closely followed by KDB)
                              Swansea: Mawson / No idea

                              Everton: Baines / Lolcott
                              Newcastle: Lascelles / Kenedy

                                3 City, 3 Arsenal, 3 x Pool, Pickford/Baines & Milo with Hart, Mariappa, Long (or Bauer) and King on bench and you should be sorted.

                              the free hit chip is really difficult to play...i'm not sure whom to chose...i'm certainly spoil for chose...hahhaaaa...

                                Can someone tell me a couple of essential players for WILDCARD on 35? With sights on 37 ofc..(no free hit, unable to field more than 4 players without wc)

                                I'm thinking Auba, Sterling, Otamendi, Mustafi, Arnie for now..and of course couple of united and spurs on bench waiting

                                  Lampard

                                  Ayew is on my shopping list for 37 along with 2 or 3 City. Mili or Zaha looks a good shout. Arnis is good but WHU have a horrible run-in!

                                  1. Silecro

                                      True, but Arnie already had some points in tough fixtures, so i'm not dismissing that easily. Ayew and mili will find their place on team,yes.
                                      Probably will go for lingard, to enable kane and auba attack for 37

                                      based on form, i think Arnie can bring attacking return in five of six of remaining matches..quite difficult against Man Utd...

                                  I remember bringing in Lukaku and captaining him when he scored 4 goals against Bournemouth last year, pivotal point in my season.
                                  Praying for something similar today! Time for him to regain his ultimate troll status

                                  Chances Kaku outscores Kane by 40 in this DGW?

                                    0, I still think Kane will probably come out on top.

                                      Probably, yeah.

                                  Anyone else feeling very disappointed with their squad? Brought in what appeared to be solid options with my GW 33 WC like Mahrez, Vertonghen, Gross, Kane, Son, Alonso and instead of leaping up the ranks, I'm currently looking at my second Red Arrow in row and a drop in OR from 60k to 90k. UGH! Really need for my FH in GW 35 to recoup some of this. Thoughts on key GW 35 options?

                                    Gross, Son and Alonso were good GW32 options who I would have avoided in GW33, Marhez not looking a good pick either now with Leicester out of EL running.

                                      Gross (has been poor for the last few GW)
                                      Son if a rotation risk now Kane is back
                                      Chelsea have been poor in general

                                    Yeah, fed up with this DGW thus far, one of the worst in recent memory, happy that I saved BB for 37 though.....in retrospect, I should have not Wildcarded in GW32, but waited until GW36 and then BB37. Brought in useless dross like Willian, Gross, Mahrez & Alonso in GW32 and they haven't done anything for me since then save for Alonso's assist over the weekend.....big whoopidooda!

                                  Essential players for GW35 imho:

                                  Sterling, KDB, Jesus, Auba, Salah, Zaha, VVD
