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′).

    On a WC...

    A. Kane+Auba (poor team balance)
    B. Kane+Lacazette
    C. Auba+Son+Eriksen

      Your TV looks fine, so don't know why A gives you a poor team balance.

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 2 Years

      A

    3. Typo

      2 months, 17 days ago

      B

    4. antis0cial

      A

    5. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I went A on my WC last week, but if I was playing it now I'd be tempted by B.

    6. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      I'm almost certainly going for B on my active wildcard.

      It was A til Fraser decided to play a blinder and make himself undroppable

  2. topdrog3108
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 17 days ago

    For a hit: Duffy + Arnie ---> Kola + Mitro

    Rest of the team going well but no arsenal worries me.

    1. arndff_ (Howe to Train your…
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Moves look sensible as Duffy is banned and Arnie is injured.

      Mitro has 4 YC, though. So beware...

      Other good options at this price bracket are:
      Wilson & Jimenez.

  3. Nuno
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    Best way to spend 8.6m between a 5th midfielder and 5th defender?

    A. 4.3/4.3 (Gibbs-White/Vinagre)
    B. 4.4/4.2 (Gunnarsson/Bennett)

    1. Numbuster
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      i guess B

      1. Nuno
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        What makes you say B?

        1. Rocky.007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 17 days ago

          B more nailed than A

          1. Nuno
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 17 days ago

            My case would be Vinagre is nailed until Boxing day, then which Jonny may be 4.3.
            MGW is likely to get minutes in most games for the rest of the season and he plays in a more attacking position than anyone else at this price point

            1. Nuno
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              scraping the barrel, I know

    I got 50 points this week, but fell from top of my mini league to about 40 points behind. Really annoying GW. Especially when on paper my team should have destroyed.

    Down from 27k to 64k or something.

    1. aspilcueta

      Sorry, 52.

      what? wow, the new leader must have had a monster week then.

      Ease off the hits and you can make it up in no time mate.

    Hi Guys

    Is there a tool that will load your team up and tell you if your players are due to rise/drop rather than search each of them on FPLstats?

        I know!
        I was holding on for an Arnie switched as Fix predicted price drop was today.
        I wake up and Arnie is .1 down 🙁

  6. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 2 Years

    Kane(C) next week looks good if no Auba?

    1. arndff_ (Howe to Train your…
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Probably

    2. drughi
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      yeah I'm going Kane or Salah

    3. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 17 days ago

      As in the weekend?

      Why no Aubameyang?

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        I don't have him, Kane to Auba doesn't look worth it and did Arnie to Wilson already

    4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Leicester have two home CS in a row but

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 17 days ago

        You don’t think he might have his time managed what with Barca midweek?

    5. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      There are better options. Leicester are really, really tight at home, only conceded 6 in 7 and the last one was in October, very good xGA too. Who else do you have?

  7. Whats the Mata?
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 17 days ago

    I've seen people replacing Arnie with Laca, that too for hits.

    Do y'all think Laca is nailed after he missed 2 back to back starts?

    Isn't a 9.6m striker who's not guaranteed starts a waste?

    1. Andy Ftw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      Apart from GW3, he's started every game against a non-top 6 side. Should be nailed for the immediate future IMO.

    2. BenDavies
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 17 days ago

      He's definitely starting on Saturday. Auba may even be rested. Two days after the last game.

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        But what about the future?
        Surely you're not getting him only for the Hudds game?

    3. Jealous Viper
        2 months, 17 days ago

        He has started 9 out of the 14 games he was available for. 4 of the 5 he missed were big games and that could be due to Emery's tactical adjustment and he usually still comes on. The only non-big game missed was West Ham where Emery I suppose was still trying to find his feet. Has started every other game

    4. DamnedUnited
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Any other Felipe Anderson owners worried about Westham's change of formation to 4-4-2? Doesnt look to be getting into the box as much with this set up

        1. BenDavies
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          for his price and fixtures, not really. he'll grab enough goals and assists to justify his place in my team.

          1. DamnedUnited
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Thinking the same but food for thought nonetheless

          2. The 5% Team
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Yeah little bit, something to monitor the upcoming fixtures...otherwise I will transfer him to Rich or Martial

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 17 days ago

              Yes I'm worried
              He's not advanced as he was, and Snodgrass taking all his set pieces
              Having said that, Westham fixtures look too good to be dealing with him now

              1. danishdynamite

                • 8 Years

                Yeah, there's that

                If I wasn't on a WC I wouldn't dream of fiddling with him

              I'm sticking with him for now, but will possibly swap for Richiarlson if it goes wrong

            Have Sané and Auba.

            Would you: Salah + Arnie - > FAnderson + Kane?

              Would not remove a rested Salah before Bournmouth. wait one week.

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Yeah, also means waiting another week for Kane....

                Can't have 'em all and Kane's potential is more than the 8 Salah gets every week isn't it?

                1. Cruyff's Eleven

            And he’ll get a break next week

                  No idea on laca - is he building his fitness back?

                  They often play together

              My last 4 GW were less than average 🙁 any suggestions?

              A) Alli & Arnie > Fraser & Laca
              B) Alli & Arnie > Sterling & Rondon
              C) Hazard & Arnie > Fraser/Maddison & Kane
              D) Alli > Son/Eriksen/Mane/...

              Patricio Hart
              Doherty Robbo(*) Laporte AWB Duffy(*)
              Hazard Alli(*) Sane Richarlison Hojberg
              Auba Arnie(*) Wilson

                Probably C. I think it might be the time of year to have Kane in for good now.

              Kane Wilson Jimenez

              1ft 1.1itb

              Worth doing Hazard to Sterling as they play each other, thinking i could upgrade second keepe.

              A) Hamer to Hennessey (Lossl plays Arsenal away this weekend)
              B) Hazard to Sterling

              TAA and Doherty have to play almost every week for me.. Digne looked fantastic yesterday(extended highlights) and should've had 2 assists and Everton have looked solid of late and have great fixtures after 3 GWs.. Anyone else considering going cheap at the back with just TAA Doherty Digne with cover in the form of Awb and Balbuena?

                Digne could be kolarov too for a few weeks

                  Alonso and maybe laporte are the only 2 premiums I want.. Alonso I can take a break from for a few weeks until he and Chelsea get some form and laportes total lack of goal threat makes me want a cheaper Ederson instead since I'm full expecting a CS run for city

                    True, but Alonso will bite you against a big team.

                      Had him all season.. After his insane first 3 weeks he was just a consistent option. Don't Mind not owning him for a bit

                        After the first 5 weeks he's only a few points ahead of Luiz for 1.5 less.

                Yup ive got those 4 defenders but Alonso over TAA. But I have been considering dropping Alonso for TAA this week.

                  I was on Luiz.. Until his benching yesterday. Cbs rarely get rested

                  Yup.. Gw 19 onwards. Maybe Kolasinac as a stop gap until then

                  I just don't want to keep benching Dohertys points anymore.. He has more than proven his worth as an every week option.. Same With TAA.. The funds freed up for the attack is unbelievable too

              If Robbo is out, how does this look for -4?

              Robbo and Arnie > Kolasinac and Laca

                Looks good. But he just had a dead leg should be fine I think.

                  Dead legs can cause havoc mate.

                  I hope he’s fit but it’s a quick turnaround

              Hi Guys

              I am activating my WC

              But there will be some price changes until Saturday. For instance, Mané is about to drop and Kane about to rise. I want them both.
              Should I activate my WC and immediately buy Kane but wait a couple of days and a possible price drop to bring mané in? I mean the idea is to buy all possible risers but wait a couple of days for droppers? Are prices changes applied even when the WC is activated ?

              thanks

                My team has the most problems so far this season and I have only 1FT. Please help!

                Ryan / Patricio*
                Alonso / Laporte / TAA / Doherty / WB
                Hazard / Sane / DSilva / Shaqiri* / Hojbjerg
                Kane / Arnautovic* / Wilson

                1) * all need to go, Shaqiri and Arnautovic ideally this week. Pat can wait, though I want Fabianski
                2) I've got 5 players in the City - Chelsea game
                3) I want Lacazette/Aubameyang

                A) Arnautovic & Shaqiri > Laca & 4.5 enabler (-4), then Alonso/Laporte > Schilndler next week and the 4.5 enabler > Fraser in GW18
                B) Arnautovic > Jimenez/Rondon
                C) Shaqiri > Richarlison/Anderson
                D) B&C (-4)
                E) Save FT, hope for the best and make 2FT next week

                    Why are you so keen to get rid of Shaqiri? I'd go Arnie and DSilva to Jiminez and Eriksen.

                  I currently have both Robertson and TAA.

                  Worth taking one of them out for Bellerin or Kolasinac?

                    Yes IMO. I have both aswell, but looking at Robbo to someone to fund Laca. The program for LFC tightens a bit

                    No - I’m keeping both

                    Attacking threat is he same or better than those suggested and more likely to keep cs even against top opposition

                  planning to WC in gw17 but have a tough decision this week ito whether to take a hit or not

                  Patricio -- Foster
                  Alonso Digne Doherty -- Awb Schindler
                  Haz Rich Martial Sane Anderson
                  Kane(c) Jimenez -- Arnie

                  A: Arnie >> Rashford, will bench martial and captain Kane
                  B: Martial >> Siggy, will bench arnie and captain Kane
                  C: Martial + Arnie >> Kenedy (bench) + Laca (c) (-4)
                  D: Sane + Arnie >> Kenedy (bench) + Auba (c) (-4)..Sane has a tough fix, will buy back on WC. Will Auba start though?

                  Can I survive without a hit this GW in order to get rid of Arnie?
                  I just made the Duffy > Doherty move for free and my current team is as follows:

                  Fabianski
                  Alonso-Robertson-Doherty-Laporte
                  Salah-Sane-Richarlison-Fraser
                  Aubameyang-Jiminez

                  Patricio-Arnautovic-AWB-Hojbjerg
