Salah back to his best as Liverpool get much-needed clean sheet

Liverpool ruthlessly capitalised on their opportunity to get back to winning ways with a 3-0 drubbing of Bournemouth on Saturday.

After huffing and puffing against Leicester and West Ham, Jurgen Klopp’s men completely dominated the Cherries at Anfield.

They created five big chances to their opponents’ zero and had more than double the number of shots in the penalty box too.

The impact of that result on our Fantasy Premier League squads is the focus of this latest Scout Notes article.

Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth

Goals: Sadio Mané (£9.6m), Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.5m), Mohamed Salah (£13.6m)

Assists: James Milner (£5.6m), Andrew Robertson (£6.8m), Roberto Firmino (£9.3m)

Mohamed Salah (£13.6m) was comfortably the best player in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth and arguably should have registered more than his eight-point haul. The Egyptian topped the game for total goal attempts, recording more than double any other player at Anfield, also having the most shots in the box and efforts on target too. Furthermore, Salah was second for chances created. Those sorts of numbers will be great news to any Fantasy managers who had been worried by Salah’s recent form, after two consecutive blanks in Gameweeks 24 and 25.

The fact that he did not capitalise on all of his chances and do enough to secure a double-figure haul is, of course, a little frustrating, especially with captaincy rival Paul Pogba (£8.8m) scoring 16 points. However, seeing Salah perform so well in open play for the first time in several weeks provides encouragement for the future, even if it’s a trip to Manchester United up next.

“The performance was brilliant. He was pretty much undefendable. It was an outstanding game; it was just exactly the football he is able to play and what we want him to play. Very, very involved in all the things, not only in the scoring moments, in the build-up situations as well. Sometimes dropping a bit, not really deep but in the half-spaces, staying wide and all that stuff. That’s exactly how he has to play and he did it in an outstanding manner.” – Jurgen Klopp

While Salah was the clear star of the show, Sadio Mané (£9.6m) continues to offer potential as a cheaper alternative. He was the one to open the scoring for Liverpool and has now netted in four consecutive Premier League matches. Coming into the Saturday afternoon encounter, the Senegalese international had been outperforming Salah for shots in the box and efforts on target in the four previous matches, hence the serious interest in his signature of late. That said, Salah was the clear winner statistically against Bournemouth.

“The front three were brilliant all day. Some of their link-up play was impossible to defend: the movement, the understanding, the one-touch play. Probably the only disappointing thing is we didn’t score more. But we’re pleased to get a clean sheet and to get the three points was the main thing, obviously.” – James Milner

Roberto Firmino (£9.3m) also reminded Fantasy managers what he is capable of as he provided the assist for Salah’s only goal of the game. Driving into the penalty box, his perfectly-timed back-heel set up the Egyptian for his cool finish. It was Firmino’s first attacking return since Gameweek 23, although he does still have six in his last eight. Crucially, the Brazilian was level with Mané for shots in the box but was more accurate, while no player created more chances in the match than him. That means Firmino should still be on our radar as a potential attacking double-up with Salah when a Liverpool triple-up looks important in the future Blank Gameweeks.

“I don’t think you’ll find a lot of players who do what Bobby did in that moment. Most of them would try to shoot and get blocked, but he did that little, little pass and then Mo is obviously a pretty cool finisher.” – Jurgen Klopp

As well as a welcome return to the ruthless attacking football for which Liverpool are known, there was also a first clean sheet since Gameweek 22. After three matches without one, the shutout was fairly routinely secured against a Bournemouth side that had scored three times in their seven away matches prior to this one. Andrew Robertson (£6.8m) was the main beneficiary as he was able to combine the clean sheet with a seventh assist of the season and one bonus for a nine-point haul.

Liverpool defensive options should firmly re-establish themselves as important assets moving forward, especially with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.2m) making his much-awaited return from injury. He featured as a 77th-minute substitute.

“Trent trained twice after four weeks out and it was good that we could bring him [on]. You could see immediately what a fantastic player he is.” – Jurgen Klopp

The entire Liverpool performance was impressive considering some of the problems the squad had in the build-up to the game. Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.5m), the scorer of the second goal, had illness issues in the week, as did James Milner (£5.6m).

“We had difficulties before the West Ham game, with Hendo out, Gini out, Millie was not in the team hotel because he was ill but he played. We didn’t perform that well and people were talking about him. Last night, Gini was not in the team hotel because he had pretty much everything you don’t want to have the night or two nights before a game. That’s the news you get in the morning before the last session of the week. Then, after another couple of hours’ sleep he said he felt really good and he thought he could play. But the doc said he is still infectious, so stay away. So I was only concerned today when he scored a goal and everybody gave him a hug, to be honest!” – Jurgen Klopp

For anyone worried about the adverse effects of the illness within the group, or any injuries, there is now a period of 14 days between now and Liverpool’s next Premier League match. They host Bayern Munich on Tuesday night but their elimination from the FA Cup means they have no fixture next weekend, before returning to action against Manchester United in Gameweek 27 on February 24.

“I think [it will] for everyone. We are having one of those runs in the season where we have got little niggles, little injuries, illnesses and disruption to the team a couple of days before, it has been the last few games really. Hopefully, we can rest up and get everyone back fit. It was good to see Trent back, Hendo was on the bench if needed. That’s good and hopefully, a few more can come back in the next 10 days, refresh and go again.” – James Milner

Bournemouth continue to look decidedly ordinary on the road, compounded by the ongoing absences of Callum Wilson (£6.3m) and David Brooks (£5.0m). They were also hit by a thigh problem for Junior Stanislas (£6.0m) while Charlie Daniels (£4.1m) missed the game through personal reasons.

“We had Callum Wilson, David Brooks, Charlie Daniels, Nathaniel Clyne and Junior Stanislas are huge players for us. Since Christmas, we can add Lewis Cook and Simon Francis to that list, but there’s no other solution, we have to keep fighting. My philosophy is to look at ourselves first and that includes who we have available.” – Eddie Howe

The Cherries were restricted to just 33% possession at Anfield had just two efforts on target all afternoon. They certainly look like a team to largely avoid in the near future with Wolves (home), Arsenal (away) and Manchester City (home) their next three opponents.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Matip, Milner; Keita, Fabinho, Wijnaldum (Alexander-Arnold 77′); Mané (Origi 87′), Firmino (Sturridge 90′), Salah.

Bournemouth XI (4-5-1): Boruc; Rico (Mepham 80′), Aké, S Cook, A Smith; Fraser, Surman, Lerma (Mousset 73′), Gosling, Ibe (Solanke 59′); King.

      Kolasinac

    2. DandyDon
        5 months, 5 days ago

        I’m transferring out Shaw this week, probably for Kolasinac...so Kola gets my vote

      • Ambrosiana Inter
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Lescelles, keep away from Kola, useless...gets an assist nearly every week but never keeps a clean sheet...never scores also..lescelles good fixtures. hs goals in him and bonus magnet when they keep a clean sheet, and is even cheaper

        I thought I was the only one!

        I'm going for Rice or Pereira.

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Brown or white rice?

      3. TAT

        5 months, 5 days ago

        Alisson
        Robertson - Wan-B - Doherty - Balbuena
        Son - Salah - Pogba
        Rashford - Jiménez - Aubameyang
        (Hamer - Puncheon - Laporte - Richarlison)

        What to do with this team? Not doing brilliantly at the moment. One free transfer, and £1.7itb.

        1. Chazz69
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Balbuena and Puncheon are the 2 weakest links

          1. TAT
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 5 days ago

            Definitely! They're just there to spread the cash elsewhere.

        2. PogBooom
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          I disagree. Look at Valbuena and Puncheon as enablers. I’d replace Richa with a Leicester asset

          1. TAT
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 5 days ago

            Is anybody in that Leicester mid worth getting, or are you thinking in defence?

      4. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        I had Ederson 7, Trippier 2, Son 6, Sterling 18 and still, somehow, quiet inexplicably managed to get a red arrow?
        Really?
        Or is the overall not yet confirmed?

        1. Niho992
            5 months, 5 days ago

              I have 59 points, Bennett and Jiménez to go, I know quit disappointing but...overall was 190 k I think now 218 k

              1. Niho992
                  5 months, 5 days ago

                    Was hoping for a green arrow today as not many have kun, and sterling but hey

                Wanted martial but didn’t put him in for richa as would have been -4...still hurts not to have taken that hit

                  Feel the pain... Took out martial and wood for sane for the double

              top 10k average is more indicative than the overall
              top 10k = 63 so you are below that
              the overall (51) is skewed by ghost teams

              as an example one guy in my ML has 16 points! So those type of teams are in overall average

                  how many ppl (%) in the top 10k have Doherty and Jota?

                    • 7 Years

                    6% of teams
                    The more common combo is Doherty and Jimenez which is an pretty high 48% of teams!

                  Thoughts on :

                  Luiz, Richarlison, Sane, Mitrovic ----> Kolasinac, Maddison, Anderson and Laca/Auba (will decide later which one) ?

                  It would be for a -8.

                  What’s the general consensus on Maitland-Niles? 4.4 but a sure starter and play high up

                      Arsenal and Fulham probably the only teams in the leagues where their defenders would have had more points if they were classified as mids! 😀

                    What to do here? Obviously need to get Lamela and Sane out.

                    Etheridge - Speroni
                    TAA - Kola - Doherty - AWB - Holebas
                    Salah - Pogba - Son - Lamela - Sane
                    Auba - Rashford - Jimenez

                    A) Sane --> Mane or Felipe Anderson
                    B) Lamela + Holebas --> Camarasa + Pereira (-4)
                    C) Lamela --> Camarasa
                    D) Save

                      F) Sane & Lamela > Mane & F Anderson

                      Not sure if that fits in the budget but those seem to most necessary moves atm, not enough ITB, a leicester mid (Barnes) is a good shout

                    Pretty insane that Aguero missed a tap in and hit the crossbar too today. Could have had 4 or 5.

                        Think both he and Salah have had those kind of seasons. Watched so many MOTDs where they could have had a hat trick but blanked or managed just one.

                            Think so now. Have 2 FTs so could do it but already would lose a bunch of value. Equally I need rid of Digne and Richarlison and can't get much like for like I want so could go something dull like TAA and Fraser and maybe just scrape him back.

                            May be more tempted to do Sterling to Son for one week as that guy is hurting me.

                              2 FTs mean you can relax and make a call just before the GW.

                    How on Earth do I get Aguero whilst keeping Sterling? Can only think of Ederson/Rashford/Ings > Boruc/Barnes/Aguero, but would be priced out of that soon, anyway.

                      1) Digne > Pereira in and Sigurdsson out > Anderson in for -4 before Anderson's price goes up.
                      2) David Luiz > Pereira and deal with Digne and Siggy after the Cardiff game.

                      This won't be a popular opinion, but for those now thinking of hanging onto Aguero and not getting an Arsenal striker for GW27, I'm strongly considering Rashford > Arnautovic (C) at home to a woeful Fulham. I did the original hokey-cokey from Auba to Aguero but then hung onto Aguero this GW once I realised Sane had clearly dropped down the pecking order and I wanted Mane.

                      As for Arsenal, they're just not looking that great, and Southampton are unlikely to roll over. I think I will just keep Aguero now for those awesome fixtures coming up. Can't use up too many transfers now as we build towards the blanks and doubles.

                      I feel like West Ham could destroy Fulham. Big call to put the armband on Arnie, but I'm tempted. As for Rashford, I think he might have now just reached the tail end of his cycle. If you look closely at the fixtures, it's a tricky away trip to Liverpool followed by two games against teams who can keep it at least reasonably tight, and rotation could also be rife for Man United - particularly that GW29 fixture which is the one you'd really want him for. Then it's Arsenal and a few blanks. Rash has been incredible value, but nobody is a season keeper.

                        5 months, 5 days ago

                        I can see the logic and avoiding Auba myself.

                        I just have had Rashford since the second OGS game and too much value tied up in him. I really don’t think I can part with the guy, he enables such a good squad alongside Jiminez, Doherty, AWB

                          Too much value, I get it. But what is your actual plan with him? If you look at the fixtures, when do you expect to keep him til? I think in a few weeks he will be getting sold by a lot of managers.

                            Yes obviously I'm saying this with a view to GW31. At some point you do have to start making the right transfers unless you're going to Free Hit in GW31. Getting double West Ham attack for a home game against Fulham feels like a good way to start that transfer run.

                          Fair enough. Personally value means nothing to me, I couldn't care less. I make so many transfers that a player's value at any particular time in my squad simply doesn't matter. I just go for immediate points wherever I see an opportunity.

                        I was all set to do Firmino to Auba, but might go Arnie as a big differential.

                        Would allow me to do Rich up to Mane 🙂

                          I like those moves a lot. I would go for it.

                          Yep, I'm an Arsenal fan and I am not expecting us to thrash them at all.

                        Fellow spirit.

                        I decided to hold Agüero through immediately after the Everton game. I’ve also been looking at the Rash out and Arnie captaincy v Fulham since then. Like you I’m not a huge fan of the upcoming fixture run for Rash.

                        The only reason I may not is if Wilson becomes available. He’d be home in 27 and has great fixtures from 30 on including 31/3. I’m prepared to go Agüero Jimmy in 28/9 if need be.

                        I too have value in Rash but think I’ll quite possibly get it back long term if I move for Wilson and if he’s fit. That’s an if if!

                        Am on 74 points with jiminez and Doherty to go. But the moment of the week has to be kola scoring the own goal went from a possible 12 points to 2

                        3rd for defenders for touches in the box

                          When/if I get a Leicester defender I’ll be considering Maguire over the other options for sure.

                          He’s so fun to watch at corners

                          I need to do the same transfer but 10 of my players play before next GW and some of them twice. So it would be a bad move doing it now

                        w/ 1FT and 0.0 ITB, which looks best at this point in time? Not doing anything til nearer the deadline though obviously
                        A) Sane --> Felipe Anderson / other
                        B) Alonso --> Pereira/TAA

                        Auba Jimenez Rashford

                        - haven't decided but leaning towards TAA despite Leicester fixtures as the better player (?) in better side. Going with gut atm since I don't have membership @TM 😆

                          Starting to sound like the Auba to Aguero decision.

                            In what way? Don't speak of that atrocity lol. Looking back a fit Aguero should've been a no brainer vs those two defences - I was too stubborn.
