Why I’m considering a Liverpool defensive double-up

The festive period is always an exciting time of the season for FPL managers but boy was it hectic.

It feels good to return to normality now with more time to mull over our transfer decisions each week.

Time to double up on the Liverpool defence?

The Reds have been rock solid defensively this season with Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) keeping everything under control and Alisson (£5.9m) performing much better than his predecessors.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have conceded just ten goals in their opening twenty-one matches and they face just one of the current top six in the next ten Gameweeks (Manchester United away in Gameweek 27).

A defenesive double up looks good on paper with any combination of Andrew Robertson (£6.6m), Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.2m), van Dijk or Alisson likely to bring home the clean sheet points for managers between now and the next international break (yes there is another one).

Will Eden Hazard troll his owners again?

The Belgian has frustrated his backers in recent weeks with three blanks in his last four appearances against Leicester, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Patience is required with Eden Hazard (£11.1m) as often has been the case. He’s an FPL asset that must be held long term to reap the benefits as his hauls are unpredictable. Watch him bag a brace this weekend to stick it to the sellers.

Despite three blanks in the last four, Hazard ranks first alongside Richarlison (£6.9m) among midfielders for shots in the box (10) over the same period as well as creating ten chances for his team mates. Some would say he’s due…

Why sell Richarlison before Bournemouth at home?

The Brazilian is the second most-transferred out player ahead of Gameweek 22 with more than 110,000 sales. Only his fellow countryman Felipe Anderson (£7.4m) has been shipped by more managers this week.

Selling Richarlison ahead of a plum home tie is risky business. The Cherries have conceded eighteen goals in the last six Gameweeks!

The Toffees looked jaded in the 1-0 defeat to Leicester back in Gameweek 21, but a rest for some of their first-team players in the FA Cup should see them looking much fresher in Sunday’s matchup at Goodison Park.

Raheem the dream differential?

Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) has eighteen attacking returns (nine goals, nine assists) in eighteen appearances in 2018/19, yet is owned by just 10.2% of managers ahead of Monday’s home tie against Wolves.

For those managers who are down the rankings or are chasing a lead in a mini-league, the Englishman could prove to be a devastating differential over the coming weeks.

Manchester City gave us a timely reminder of what they can do to teams with a 9-0 thrashing of Burton Albion in the EFL Cup midweek. Sterling was an unused substitute in that match which makes him even more appealing for Gameweek 22, maybe even as captain.

Is Marcus Rashford being overhyped?

The young striker has been excellent since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reins at Old Trafford, scoring 31 FPL points, but is his place in the starting XI as secure as most people seem to think?

There’s a lot of competition for places at United. Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m) isn’t going to be content with a place on the bench and will be pushing for starts.

Will Solskjaer play them both up front together, or could we see Rashford moved back to the wing where he would be in competition with the likes of Anthony Martial (£7.3m), Alexis Sanchez (£10.0m), Jesse Lingard (£6.8m) and Juan Mata (£6.2m).

For now, Rashford looks to be Solskjaer’s number one striker but all it takes is a poor display or two and we could see some positional/personnel changes.

Aaron Wan-Don’t-Bench-Me-Bissaka

Arguably the greatest £4.0m FPL asset of all time has picked up three clean sheets in the last five Gameweeks.

Crystal Palace have looked a lot more stable defensively in recent weeks since Vicente Guaita (£4.2m) took over from Wayne Hennessey (£4.5m) between the sticks.

Five of the next six fixtures look good for  Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.5m) to get starts in our teams rather than having to look at his points on the bench.

      Who is best striker £5.8m or under????

      1. Keeneddie79
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Ings
        Barnes
        Kamara

      2. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        If you need to move this week I like Barnes, but if you can hold off Ings should be back post Leicester and is worth considering.

      3. Drogba Legend
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Deeney too if he is still under that price

      4. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Barnes now. Ings when fit.

      5. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        STILL BARNES.

    • AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Fabs
      Digne Robbo TAA
      Hazard Son Martial Anderson Camarasa
      Kane Auba
      (Button - AWB - Jimenez - Doherty) 2ft 0.3itb

      Difficult week to make choices - but hate wasting transfers. These are some options if you could help out, mostly to raise cash..
      A) Digne down to Bednarek/Cedric to free up funds for midfield.
      B) Martial to cheaper mid (Fraser, Pereya, Redmond).
      C) Fabs to Guaita.
      D) Just do a sideways one week punt (e.g. Martial to Richarlison/Bilva) and reassess.
      E) Burn transfer.
      F) You need to sacrifice a big hitter to get Salah or Sterling this week.

      1. TONY123
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Probably B/D with Martial to Richarlison/Pereyra and then F next week (sacrificing Auba to bring Salah in)

        1. Drogba Legend
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Probably what Tony said. B or D this GW, or save FT and then Salah/Sterling after that.

        2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Thanks - that seems sensible.
          I wasn't considering losing Fabs at all until I read about Balbuena. WH won't keep cleanies for sure now, as if they ever did!

      2. Keeneddie79
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Like Martial to Fraser or Pereyra the most of these options

        Personally tired of Fabs but having AWB makes me hesitant to swap to Guaita

        1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I'd quite like Gunn or McCarthy if they were nailed on

          1. Keeneddie79
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yep but the IF there is keeping me away haha

      3. BOATIES FC

        I'm thinking of c

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Son to Bilva - you will have to sell Son anyway next week.

    • TONY123
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      This week: Snodgrass > Richarlison
      Next week: Martial + Alonso + Auba > Salah + Rashford + TAA (-4)

      Does that sound like a sensible plan?

      1. Keeneddie79
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        If you do Snodgrass to a budget (assuming he's currently your fifth mid) like Camarasa, would you still need to take a hit next week?

        1. TONY123
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Unfortunately he's my 4th mid - I could afford someone up to 6.7(Pereyra?) in order to keep Alonso next week and just do Auba + Martial > Salah + Rash for free
          Not sure I prefer Pereya to Rich though

          1. Keeneddie79
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Ah yea, then I think your original post looks a decent plan - do expect Richarlison has high return potential the next 3 gameweeks at least

            1. TONY123
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah l hope Everton can deliver in those games - cheers pal

              1. Keeneddie79
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Me too - Picked up Siggy last week as a differential coverage and have Digne as well... because Everton are such a powerhouse?

                We'll see how it goes!

      2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I like it

    • BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Fab
      Alonso Lovren Shaw Doherty AWB
      Sterling Hazard Pogba Rich Holjberg
      Auba Mitro Rashford
      2.2 itb 2ft
      Im going to get Salah for either Hazard (most likely) or Sterling or Auba next week.
      I'm thinking Fab to Guita this week to free up funds and Lovren to? Kola maybe. If I get TAA I'll need a hit to find more funds to get Salah next week

      1. TONY123
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Just do the GK move and play AWB ahead of Lovren - 2 FT for next week will be golden

        1. BOATIES FC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 14 days ago

          OK. Cheers

    • Drogba Legend
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Barring any injuries, G2G to save FT for GW or Martial > 7.5 mid or under:

      Fabianski
      Alonso - Trippier - TAA - AWB - Digne
      Salah - Hazard (C) - Martial - Deu
      Kane

      Rui - Ings - Jimenez - Obiang

      Cheers

      1. TONY123
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Save FT

      2. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        If you sell Fab to fodder can you afford Martial to Pogba next week?

    • Manani
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      kind of stuck on how should I spend my 2 FT

      Fabanski Button
      AWB Dohetry TAA Holebas Digne
      Hazard Salah FAnderson Richarlison Pogba
      Kane Kamara Jimenez

      .5m ITB

      1. Super Saints
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Improve Fab or Lolebas

      2. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not sure. Tough to see a move

      3. Keeneddie79
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I'd move on from Fanderson and put some money in the bank:
        Pereyra or Doucouré
        Camarasa
        Brooks or Fraser
        some decent options to consider

    • Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      No balbuena for West Ham for 6-8 weeks ffs !!! Was meant to be imminent his return. Ah well well done Auba cappers

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yup. Definitely captaining Auba now. Making me jittery about Fabianski actually, because Diop and Balbuena are the best aspect of their defence despite their faults.

      2. Brosstan
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Balbuena what a horrible pick. Last time I pick a CB from a poor side just because he has "goal threat" (not significant)

    • danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Am I right in thinking that during this GW, with all the WC's being flashed about, that the Fantasy Football Fx algorithm has been more accurate than FPLStats?

      Cos Salah is nowheere near rising on Fix, yet very very close on FPLStats

    • Djura88
        2 months, 14 days ago

            He is not good at this defending thing.

      • Right back Atsu
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Pool have conceded 4 in their last 2 matches. Are they really defensively solid?

        1. piquiblanco
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Do we determine who's solid in defence and who's not based on the last two matches?

        2. Amey
            2 months, 14 days ago

            They played City & Arsenal.
            I think they are solid defensively.

            LIV has 10 GA this season. :).

            1. Right back Atsu
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Feel they're overrated. Conceded quite a few in Champions League.

              1. Berbinho's Forehead
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                10 goals conceded after 21 Premier League games is elite of the highest level.

                The all-time EPL GA record is 15 (CHE - 2004/05). The best modelling/projections I have seen put LIV’s GA this season at 19. :).

            Not sure anyone can answer that one, Howe usually has a press conference first thing on a Friday so you'll have to wait until then.

          Any chance that Salah and Allison don't rise this week? Getting next week but that .2 increase will scupper my plans 🙁

          Top 5 transfers out this week - Anderson, Richarlison, Son, Pogba and Jiminez. Some weird ones in there. I have 4 of them!

          1. JaiLeR11
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Same here.
            Team value is useful, though points obviously are more important. Stick to your guns. However if you think someone is on the slide with their performances..

        6. TONY123
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          What's your view on the captaincy situation for this week (for non Salah owners):
          A) Auba (whu)
          B) Hazard (NEW)
          C) Kane (MUN)

          1. AuFeld
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I'm on Auba for now. He's been under performing and I wouldn't want to be without him when he starts converting more big chances. WHU defense has been atrocious over the last four. The have conceded: 21 shots on target, 12 big chances, and 7 goals. The opposition over the last four makes matters worse as BHA, BUR, SOU, and WAT are not known for their attacking threat.

            Hazard looks good, escpecially with Pedro and Willian healthy. He's likely to start back in as a false nine where he seems to flourish. His opposition NEW can be stubborn. Over the last four NEW has conceded: 7 goals, 22 shots on target, and ten big chances.

            Kane is in fine form. One may argue that he is over performing and due to regress. MUN defense has improved over the last four under OGS, but the opposition over the last four are not known for their attacking prowess: NEW, BOU, HUD, and CAR. I think MUN defense will be tested vs Spurs.

          F Anderson, keep or get rid?

          1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            It's not urgent - but if there's a good upgrade for free consider it.

          2. AuFeld
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Keep this week. ARS defense is lack luster.

          3. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Depends.

              Only 0.1 ITB but nothing else pressing..

              Maybe WHam will continue positive spell with Marko back

                Keep for now, ,maybe the Bournemouth game too.
                But if you don't have Rich id make that move now.

                  I do 🙂 Thanks.

                  Will be good with 2 FT's when Son leaves after MU

          Is there a nailed keeper at Southampton now? (Palace too for that matter)

          I'd quite like Gunn at 4.4, but its obviously risky.

          1. HamezMace
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I don't think we can say that either are nailed, unfortunately

        9. Gudjohnsen
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Paterson or Redmond as a 5th midfielder...

          1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Redmond for sure at the moment I'd say.

            Redmond now warnock sees Zohore as his best striker who will be back after Newcastle

          Out of interest, what did Liverpool fans think of Shelvey?

          1. Berbinho's Forehead
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Decent passer of the ball and has the ability to run games albeit inconsistently.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              Yeah. At times he looks an incredible player for us. Shame, I think he could have been more.

            Good potential to boss a game but just too patchy.

            Lovely passer. Looked like possibly a great talent for the future. Though unfortunately not disciplined enough, or of the right character for LFC.

              He's been at it for a while (his brother/agent). I think he'll stay.

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Well he (agent) was trying to angle a move to Man Utd in the summer wasn't he, saying that he was good enough to be playing in the CL, and a top 4 team.
                Interesting that 6 months later the allure of the Chinese super league now supersedes his desire to be playing at the highest level in Europe.
                I wonder why?

                ...I've not read the article, can't find it on BBC, or Sky.

              HELP NEEDED!

              - Got 2FTs here and don't want to burn one. (0.7 itb)
              A). Fab > Guaita
              B). Snodders > ??
              C). Wilson > Arnie (a week early)

              - For those of you that watched the latest Scoutcast, I can only use Jonty's team as similar to mine in the respect that this GW looks very tricky, but after that i like where it is going. (see below)

              Fab
              Alonso - TAA - Digne - AWB
              Salah - Sane - Sonny
              Kane - Rashford - Wilson

              Bench: Button; Snodders, Doherty, MGW

              Cheers all.

                Not tempted to move out Son, you'll have to next week anyway, I assume?

                  • 5 Years

                  Straight switch to Pogba bro.

                  1. HamezMace
                    • 4 Years

                    I'm all in on that.

                    I'd hold off the Wilson to Arnie move.
                    One could be at Chelsea, whilst the other is in China next week.

                Could you just free up some cash for a double change next week - sideways Alonso to Luiz? Or downgrade Digne to Bednarek (your defence ain't cheap)? Or Snodders to el cheapo?

                1. Four Season Wonder
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  Been thinking about the best way to do this. But I can't ditch Alonso before NEW.

                  Snodgrass can go in a double change next week along with Sonny (for Pogba & a 6.8m mid)

              Rashford or Arnie for a FT?
              Slightly worried about this Chinese bid turning Arnie's head.

              Double up, pffff what a casual. Im considering the triple up for the rest of the season.

                • 7 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Guessing triple Liverpool rather than triple defense?

                1. Brosstan
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  triple defense.

                  1. Reckoner.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years

                    Wouldn't do that myself, stops you being able to get Salah in.

                    Maybe ok for most games but in those that you should be captaining him in it's a massive risk.

                Considered it myself but two is enough considering other good options around the 5 million mark.
