Injury to Gomez may aid FPL managers as Klopp’s rotation bites hard

Our latest Scout Notes article from the midweek round of Premier League fixtures focuses on events in Lancashire, where Jurgen Klopp wielded the axe and changed all bar four of his starting XI from the side that defeated Everton on Sunday.

There was precious little to cheer for owners of the Reds’ most popular Fantasy assets but Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino at least came off the bench to register consolation attacking returns as Klopp’s much-altered side made heavy work of defeating Burnley on Wednesday evening.

An ankle injury picked up by Joe Gomez will have soured the mood in the Liverpool camp but, at the risk of sounding callous and of course wishing the England defender a speedy recovery, we will discuss the possible silver lining for Fantasy managers in the piece below.

We’ll also cover the goals, assists, manager quotes and Fantasy talking points in our round-up of events from Turf Moor.

Burnley 1-3 Liverpool

  • Goals: Jack Cork (£4.6m) | James Milner (£5.6m), Roberto Firmino (£9.2m), Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.0m)
  • Assists: Ashley Barnes  (£5.6m) | Divock Origi (£5.0m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.1m), Mohamed Salah (£13.0m)

While a degree of tinkering was expected from Jurgen Klopp ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Burnley, the scale of his rotation came as quite the shock to the legions of Fantasy managers who were keenly anticipating the Reds’ encounter with one of the division’s worst defences.

Sadio Mane (£9.8m) and Andrew Robertson‘s (£6.5m) no-shows were anticipated after the pair picked up injuries in the Merseyside derby but the demotion of Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.3m) to the Liverpool bench for this fixture came as more of an unwelcome surprise.

Klopp made seven changes in all, with only Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.0m), Joe Gomez (£5.1m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.1m) and Alisson (£5.7m) retaining their starts from the win over Everton, and the mass-rotation looked to have been a huge miscalculation after an hour of Wednesday night’s clash in Lancashire.

Liverpool were disjointed in a goalless first half, with Joe Hart (£4.5m) only called into action to make two comfortable saves before the interval.

Worse was to follow on 54 minutes when Jack Cork (£4.6m) followed up parried efforts from James Tarkowski (£4.7m) and Ashley Barnes (£5.6m) to give the Clarets an unexpected lead, a goal that soon prompted the summoning of Salah and Firmino from the visitors’ bench.

James Milner (£5.6m) had drawn Liverpool level by the time the premium pair were introduced and in truth, the balance of the game had already shifted as Salah and Firmino took to the pitch, with Hart saving well from Daniel Sturridge (£5.8m) and Naby Keita (£7.2m) before Milner’s equaliser.

Salah and Firmino had only 25 minutes with which to influence the game but the consolation for their Fantasy owners was that the pair emerged from this hard-fought win with attacking returns – Firmino tapping home a cushioned pass from van Dijk with his first touch of the match and Salah setting up Shaqiri on the counter-attack in the dying moments to add gloss to the scoreline.

Salah might have had a goal himself after some beautiful combination play between the Egyptian and Keita, with both players being denied by the impressive Hart and Phil Bardsley (£4.2m) in the same move.

Rotation aside, the biggest storyline to come out of this fixture was the ankle injury picked up by Gomez midway through the first half.

The sight of the England defender being stretchered off looked ominous and Klopp suggested after full-time that the problem could be a serious one:

It was his ankle. Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit. We have to see, we don’t know in the moment. We sent him home.

The repercussions of a medium-to-long-term injury to Gomez could be significant, given that the England international has been used variously as a right-back and centre-half this season.

Gomez’s absence would leave only Nathaniel Clyne (£4.6m) – yet to play a minute of league football this season – as competition for Alexander-Arnold, while van Dijk’s status as the most “nailed” Liverpool defender would surely only be solidified further with his semi-regular central defensive partner sidelined.

Alexander-Arnold indeed appeared as if he would bank the most fortunate of clean sheets after replacing Gomez on 23 minutes, only for Cork’s opening goal to dash any hopes of a shut-out for his owners.

After almost two years without an attacking FPL return, it’s now two assists in as many matches for van Dijk, with the Dutch stopper providing the telling pass that led to Firmino’s strike.

The former Celtic and Southampton defender was a menace throughout at set plays, registering three headed attempts on goal from dead-ball situations.

Perhaps the pick of Klopp’s “second string” was Keita, who racked up more shots on goal and penalty box touches than any other player on show.

His manager said after the match:

Always when Naby had the ball, at least something changed a little bit. We all know Shaq can play much better – turn in situations, get the ball and be a bit more decisive. The only ones who really tried to do something was Millie with runs in behind and Naby with the ball. Hendo shouldn’t be involved in that – he had to protect all the runners.

So Naby made all the difference in a lot of moments. I think his blocked shot was the biggest chance we had in the first half, I’m not 100 per cent sure but at least it looked like a proper chance; Burnley blocked it. In the second half, the one-two with Mo [Salah] was a good finish and a bit lucky in that moment for Burnley. In the beginning it was really good and at the end. In the middle, we didn’t use him – I was shouting, ‘We have to use Naby!’ because he was not involved, we played long ball and big switches. Naby was constantly played over. When he was involved, he was really good.

The positive news for owners of Messrs Salah, Mane, Firmino and Robertson was that their understudies didn’t particularly impress, with Sturridge, Divock Origi (£5.0m) and Alberto Moreno (£4.2m) very much looking like second-rate versions of the players they replaced without doing too much wrong.

The hope for those hanging onto Liverpool assets over the festive period would be that Klopp has learned his lesson from making too many changes at once, though with seven matches to contest over the next 28 days there will inevitably be further disappointment in the form of a surprise benching in the coming month – as will no doubt be the case with Fantasy assets from other clubs.

Aside from a stoppage-time header from Ben Mee (£4.7m) that Alisson superbly clawed out, Burnley only really drew regulation saves from the Brazilian goalkeeper but Sean Dyche could at least take some pride from the manner of the defeat, given that the Clarets were still in the game past the 90-minute mark.

An ebullient Dyche said:

The mentality and framework and the energy and belief in made five changes and I felt that was necessary.

People sometimes question that, but before we worry too much about tactical shapes, we had to get the right bodies on the pitch tonight.

There were players who deserved a chance and I’m pretty loyal to the players here, but there comes a time when I have to shake the pack.

I thought that worked tonight, but of course it can’t just be about tonight. Those players have delivered and now it’s about taking it forward into the next game.

What we are doing flooded back into the group tonight.

We were knocking those performances out week after week last season and getting our rewards. We’ve come away from that this season, for many reasons. Now it’s about reminding ourselves that that’s what we do and as a performance marker it was important.

Those five changes Dyche alluded to saw Barnes, Tarkowski, Bardsley, Ashley Westwood (£4.5m) and Robbie Brady (£5.4m) come into the side in an admirably positive 4-4-2, with Steven Defour (£5.4m) missing through injury.

The heartening performance from the Clarets and Dyche’s upbeat words afterwards perhaps suggests the starting XI for the visit of Brighton on Saturday will closely resemble Wednesday night’s line-up, with Matthew Lowton (£4.7m), Aaron Lennon (£5.0m), Jeff Hendrick (£5.3m) and Kevin Long (£4.2m) seemingly unlikely to reclaim their positions after Dyche had previously talked of being “too loyal” to underperforming members of his squad.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Hart; Bardsley, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Cork, Brady (Lennon 71′); Barnes (Vydra 83′), Wood (Vokes 71′)

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Gomez (Alexander-Arnold 23′), Van Dijk, Matip, Moreno (Salah 65′); Henderson, Milner, Keita; Shaqiri, Sturridge, Origi (Firmino 65′).

    Good morning

    1. Exeter Gently
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      And in case I don’t see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night

  2. Tosa86
    • 1 Year
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    my actual team in FPL is:

    Hennesey - Fabianski
    La porte - Alonso - VVD - doherty - wan bissaka.
    mane salah billing richarlison fraser
    wilson auba arna

    InB:0.3
    FT:1

    1) How to replace arna?chicharito, jimenes, lucas perez, other?
    2) Who between hennessey e fabianski per next GW?
    3) manè or salah needs to cut?

    1. RFCSPACE
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Bilva or Son? City or spurs double up on either case. Or any other options?

      1. Tosa86
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        mane, arna -> b silva, forward (-4) ?

      2. RFCSPACE
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Lol didn't mean to reply with that.

        But I would say drop Salah and upgrade Arnie to Kane. Hennessey GK

      3. Tosa86
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        mane, arna -> sane, jimenez?

        1. Numbuster
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          guess u wish to keep your Salah

          Arnie > Kamara (as 3rd striker)
          Mane > Sterling / Sane

          Try to downgrade Laporte and VVD, you may need those unit for following week to upgrade Billing and the 3rd striker too

          after the changes, i guess your best lines up would be 4-4-2

    2. frenchfries
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      If i was to choose, i would go Jimenez. From his last 5 games, he has scored 2 and assisted 2, and this against TOT, CHE and ARS, think he is a safe bet.

  3. SirT83
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    A: Salah and Arnie for Auba and Son? - 4 points
    B: Arnie for Wilson/Mitro

    Fabs
    Alonso Robbo WB Duffy Doherty
    Salah Siggy Felipe Billing Sane
    Kane Arnie Zaha.

    1. Tosa86

    4. Wilbrahamovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Arnie to Wilson.

  4. Eytexi

    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Morning all, what's the situation with Aubameyang. Half of people saying he's essential for captaincy, half saying avoid due to rotation. Thoughts on both views? 🙂

    1. Jules Rimet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Nobody knows. He has played alot lately. Might bench and come in second half and score a brace, nobody knows really

    2. Nascimento
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I agree with both.

      I brought him in last night for Arnie to captain him this weekend but I think he’ll most likely be benched.

    3. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I’d always planned on Laca and am now unsure. When Laca plays it’s as #9, and I can see him getting equal game time

      However, I worry about (C) ingvhim, whereas I feel easier (C) ing Auba

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Even if he plays 30 minutes he can score double digits. Definitely captaining this gw

    5. frenchfries
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I got Laca, mostly cause of funds and teambalance. Might be rotation, but Auba can score big from bench also, so he has proven.

      1. Regin
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        after saturday, there is 1 week rest (auba will rest europa league), so i reckon and hope he will start.

        1. rebecs
          • 1 Year
          10 days, 14 hours ago

          I got both for this weekend - alternatives rarely do much (Iwobi and Mkhitaryan have both been sub par these past game weeks, Ozil injured supposedly and Ramsey a doubt after injury). Laca and Auba feed off each other and make a phenomenal pair up front when it counts!

  5. danishdynamite
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    A bit of WC help, anyone ?

    So, after weeks of planning otherwise I’m gonna keep Fraser and will need him to rotate with a Wolves player over the coming weeks

    Fabs / Button
    TAA / Kolasinac / Digne / Doherty / Kiko
    Sterling / Sane / Son / Fandersen / Fraser
    Kane / Auba / Success

    OR

    Auba > Laca
    Success > Jiminez
    Doherty > Luiz

    1. Union_Jacks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Similar to mine, I had Son this week but believe him or Eriksen are next in line for a rest.

      Reckon Auba plays?

  6. Union_Jacks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    RMWCT

    Fabianski
    TAA - Kola - Doherty
    Sterling - Sané - FAnderson - Richy
    Kane - Auba - Jimenez

    Hamer - Camarasa - AWB - Schindler

    Will Auba start??

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Nobody knows :-/

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I'd keep him in if that's what you're asking

      1. Union_Jacks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Yeah, basically! Cheers

    3. kanat_karktl
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Kola is not a good choice (Arsenal fan). maybe Balbuena (WHU) instead?

  7. Goonsquad245
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Considering Lacazette as a captain option, but requires a -8 to get him in....

    A) Robbo -> TAA, Alonso -> 5.1, Arnie to Laca (-8)

    B) Arnie -> Jiminez

    Would captain Laca this week and maybe vs BUR

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Or Alonso -> Kiko, Arnie -> Laca (-4)

    2. frenchfries
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      hmm i would not take -8 to get him. But then again, i have not taken a single hit this season.

    3. Taking the Mkhitaryan
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Awful
      Forget it
      He may not start

    4. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Not for -8 no. But he should start vs HUD

      1. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Thoughts on my -4 alternative with Alonso to Kiko?

        1. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 1 Year
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          To be honest I think getting rid of Alonso is not wise. If he doesn’t deliver 2 or 3 weeks after the MCI game, then move on.

          Same goes for Hazard imo...

          1. Goonsquad245
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            10 days, 15 hours ago

            OK - thankyou

    5. ad-hoque
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Laca would have to score minimum one goal plus bonus etc, if you're going to hold him long term then maybe yes, else no

  8. frenchfries

      Auba played 180 minutes against Spurs and Man U in the last 4 days. If Emery is not insane he will bench Auba.

    RMWCT

    Fabianski / Steele

    Alonso / TAA / Doherty / AWB / Schindler

    Sane / Hazard / Richarlison / Fraser / Masuaku

    Kane / Auba / Wilson

    0.3 itb

    Anything I am missing? Maybe some improvements?

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Sterling

      1. fenixri
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        I believe Sane will cover him just fine

        1. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          OK

          1. fenixri
            • 2 Years
            10 days, 15 hours ago

            But this is the move I am considering

            Alonso + Fraser -> VVD + FAnderson

            What do you think?

            1. Goonsquad245
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              10 days, 15 hours ago

              I'd do alonso to VVD regardless. Really not sure on Fraser vs Anderson

  19. Regin

    dropped from 39k to 102k last 2 weeks. On a real downward slide. Made a big blunder signing auba ahead of kane this week. now i got in kane as well for a hit. lost 17 points by not captaining kane.

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Not worried Kane may get rested pre Barca game?

      1. Regin
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        even if he is rested, think he's good for the entire month of december with good fixtures. But dont think kane will get rested.

    2. JackJack
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Sounds like you are in panic mode. I'd suggest you relax, but it seems you've already rushed your hit transfer..

    3. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      I'm a Kane owner and was thinking I'd made a big blunder looking at Auba's fixtures from now on!

      It's only round 1, relax, captain Auba this week. Could easily overtake Kane over the course of the next 4

  20. FPLGraham
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Would anyone still do Arnie -> Aubameyang for free?

    I own Lacazette... little worried PEA gets a rest this week.

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Not sure he will, perfectly capable of 3 games in a week and he gets a guaranteed rest in the EL

      (Non owner BTW)

    Morning Gents,

    Thoughts on what to do with arnie?

    A. Arnie > Mitro
    b. Arnie > hernandez
    C. Hazard, Arnie > Lacazette & Anderson?

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Who is your first sub?

      I'd go A but would honestly wait a week.

    Any Fulham fans around?

    Chambers in midfield getting some shots in is interesting, dyou think he keeps his place?

  25. Jet5605
    • 4 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    2 FT and 3.2 ITB. Thoughts on this?

    A - Aguero & Arnie > Auba & Jiminez
    B - Arnie & Duffy > Jiminez & Trippier
    Other?

    Hart
    Robertson - Doherty - AWB
    Salah - Eriksen - Fraser - Richarlison
    Aguero - Arnie - Mitro

    Hennessey - Cairney - Duffy - Bednarek

    1. Mesh

      I brought trippier in this week but he picked up an injury.

  26. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 2 Years

    Robbo owner, what will you do?
    A. Hold
    B. Replace with VVD
    C. Replace with TAA
    D. Others
    Ta.

    1. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      A until Arsenal.

    2. Zilla
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      A

    3. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Wait for news, if he's not fit he's gone for TAA.

    4. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Hold for now and wait for news. If hes not fit TAA, VVD & Bellerin all look decent options.

    5. Regin
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      dont think it is a serious injury

      1. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        It's not, but a dead leg could easily keep him out this weekend also which would be a great opportunity to switch to TAA imo

    6. yakirh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 14 hours ago

      Sold for Bellerin
      It was between him and TAA
      Not easy choice

  27. JoeWoe
    • 7 Years
    10 days, 15 hours ago

    Hold your horses or just do it.

    Out: Arnie and Alonso
    In: Kane and 4.4 def. (Cedric or AWB)

    1. Mesh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 15 hours ago

      Who are your other forwards/defenders

      1. JoeWoe
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 15 hours ago

        Def: VVD, Laporte, Doherty and Digne
        Fwd: Auba and Wilson

        1. Mesh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 15 hours ago

          Those transfers look good. Not sure I would do it for a hit.
          Would leave you with a nice front 3

  28. Mesh

    Anyone know how serious Trippiers's injury is?

      Poch "doesn't believe it's a big thing".

    A) Arnie to Rondon (funds for City assets next week are essential), captain Salah/Kane.

    B) Arnie to Wilson, Kane to Auba (-4), captain Auba.
