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.

    Anyone else feel like Sané or Aguero is a Sliding Doors moment in their season...? Never lost so much off of the back of one decision.

      Just like selling Salah before Xmas was.

      The margins are so slim.

      I dropped Salah for his hattrick. And then followed it with De Bruyne in when he was back from injury (got injured again immediately) for Mane when he hurt his thumb (scored brace with a brace). Killer.

        In any kind of management ok on the important decisions, good managers get 1 in 3 right. Amazing managers get 2 in 3 and no one gets 3 in 3. I’m sure there are others you nailed. 11 game weeks to go

          Having Sterling took the sting out of not having Aguero for me however I have had made some idiotic decisions this season which has cost

              I think if you do your research and trust your judgement at a point it’s good to ignore the boards. Too easy to get swept up in groupthink

          Definitely. Took Jimi out on wildcard at the end of December, got rid of Anderson and Hazard before last week etc

          I do know that 3 of my 7 captain fails this season have been Aguero, Sterling and Sane......was not so long ago.

        Pereira vs Chilwell. Discuss...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Pereira possibly but hesitant on both. Leicester seem to be on a bad run

          1. Limbo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            No, they've played really well. Look like a team about to go on a run.

            Playing well but not gains in difficult fixtures != bad run

            Everton would be a bad run.

          One will be a lot more popular. Getting Chilwell could be the winner though.

        3. Numb
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          Surely Pereira?

          I was at Wembley today and was quite impressed with chilwell. End of the day it is Pereira with the points again though.

          Don't see many cs coming despite good fixtures.

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            Before this game I looked up last 6 and Pereira double chances and big chances and 10 to 1 shots taken. Chilwell for 0.3 saving makes little sense

            1. how now brown cow
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              7 months, 10 days ago

              Very true. I was just saying chilwell played quite advanced today and Leicester were threatening.

              Eye test not stats based. And Pereira got the assist like I say.

              1. Kiwivillan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                7 months, 10 days ago

                I'm doing ok last few seasons barely watching a game relying purely on stats

                1. how now brown cow
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  7 months, 10 days ago

                  I think it's a balance of both that works best.

                  Got spurs season ticket but don't get to see much of other teams on tv these days.

          I like Maguire! It’s a tough call

        6. Limbo

          • 9 Years

          Ricardo by a nose for me. More attacking threat. Even at £0.3m more

        7. Legomané

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years

          Pereira or Maguire more like

          7 months, 10 days ago

          Pereira didn't do much until the last 15 minutes...they seemed to go down his side when things got desperate. I was surprised that Chilwell got his head on the ball in the box for 2 corners...had not snapped to his set play value. I think CS value is pretty lower for each.

            What are Leicester playing for now and they are rubbish against bad teams. If they lose next one, peeps will get cold feet on either

          For those with aguero jiminez rashford front line what are your plans ?

          I was gonna do aguero to an arsenal striker or Kane if fit, only other blanker i own is Richarlison now thinking maybe i get a mid from arsenal and bench aguero. Iwobi seems to be a favorite of emery only owned by around 1.5% and has been getting mins.

          What do u guys think ?

          1. Flapjack ✅
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            I’m benching Aguero

            And sterling and Ederson for what it’s worth

            I’d avoid arsenal mids though.

            What’s the budget available to replace Richarlison ?

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 10 days ago

              I have 7.7 to spend on his replacement

              I can actually just start awb and bench both and save a transfer.

              As mentioned below i could just ignore arsenal and go for maddison, but puel seems to be experimenting with his line ups lately

              1. Flapjack ✅
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                7 months, 10 days ago

                Yeah adding players like Tielemans could change how they play.

                Haven’t had a look over many stats this weekend, but Felipe Anderson seems as good as any player who doesn’t blank? Although I suppose you’d be heavily invested in Hammers !

                  • 5 Years

                  Clearly. Anderson stats non existent

                  yeah dont really want a hammers triple up
                  have been wanting to ditch snoddy for weeks but other issues took priority. I could get anderson in tho and triple up for the blank and get rid of noddy the following week.

                  Wont make any moves till next week so still time to mull over these decisions.

            Auba for me. I'll wait for the prices to change, can't believe he's going down & Aguero's going up!

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 10 days ago

              If i do kun to auba then i would keep for two game weeks and then get aguero back but theres a reasonable chance that aguero outscores auba in that one game vs west ham (if he starts - It is on the wednesday right after the final so there is a chance he gets rested or limited mins)

          4. ZimZalabim
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            The alternative is getting maddison in for rich or anderson (own snoddy and fabianki)

          5. MikeLowrey
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 10 days ago

            I was still thinking Kun to Auba but it's hard after to do given the form he is in. I'm considering benching Aguero for 1 week

          6. Yellin' in my Ear
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            Benching kun. Also looking for a mid to replace Brooks so I have at least one on the bench.

            1. Yellin' in my Ear
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 10 days ago

              Iwobi could be a great one week punt...

              1. ZimZalabim
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 10 days ago

                he could be but its a similar situation where he isnt a guy i want long term and will use up as many tranfers to come in and out as aguero to auba/laca and back

                just more value will be lost

            Iwobi is too expensive for 5th mid unless running very cheap 3rd striker but then you're wasting trades getting him in then replacing when fixtures turn gw 29. Waste of trades imo

            1. ZimZalabim
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 10 days ago

              was just realising the same lol

              such a sad state of affairs when iwobi is one of the best arsenal mid options

          Looking like he,ll be part of the hazard deal with Real, what will Bale come in as fwd or mid?

          1. dark91
            • 3 Years

            Mid

        12. Pierce34
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          So my rank is better off by roughly 1000 places compared to before the GW started. Going into tomorrow with 2 players (and AWB autosub) but no Jimenez - should I expect a red arrow overall if Jimenez scores?

          1. TorresMagic™ - bcvy39…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            Depends on the 2 players.

            1. Pierce34
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 10 days ago

              Doherty is one, so largely doesn't matter. Jota the other, so let's assume he blanks and Jimenez scores one.

              I just want to know how to manage expectations!

            Yep red if Jimenez scores imo

            I’d say template wise most people have Doherty and Jiminez with a Rashford autosub.

            So yeah Jiminez goal will be painful for you imo.

            Thanks all. Scoring in the mid-70s and still getting a red (potentially) will leave a pretty bad taste overall.

              Positive thinking only

              I own Jiminez and want a blank

              As have Doherty and Lascelles too and my rival captained Auba and VC Jiminez.

              So I’ll be rooting with you 😉

          1FT. 0.0ITB

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

          Sane to who?

          Thinking Mane or Felipe Anderson.

          For those who aren't planning to bring Auba or Laca in next week, who will your captain be ?

          2. MikeLowrey
            • 1 Year

            Son or Jimenez

            I think the Man U vs. Liverpool game will be a cracker. High scoring.

            Pogba and Salah both involved. So one of them.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          SANE OUT

          Cant see an obvious replacement certainly for next gameweek, looks like a big downgrade, anyone got any gems?

          current midfield is Salah, Son, Sane, Pogba, Nasri (i have £1.5m in bank)

          • 2 Years

          Anyone else super impressed with Leicester going forward today? Ok Barnes snatched at the opportunities but he got into goal scoring positions Vs one of the leagues best defences and keepers! Could be a great option with fixtures over a Fanderson

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            Only have room for 8th attacker so they getting benched every week but Barnes is interesting. Makes more sense to get Camarasa or cheaper

          2. ZimZalabim
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            I think they played quite well but feel like Puel is making too many changes game to game with key players dropping vardy today seemed very pointless, gray oop didnt really convince and barnes looks very raw, but football wise promising - Fpl wise not so much

            A,B or C??

            a) Shaw -> Pereira/Trippier
            b) Aguero-> Auba

              Great fixtures coming up, as opposed to United, Tottenham and Liverpool they have just played. On the other hand they played better vs. those top teams than against Southampton or Wolves before them, so I'm not sure.

            Does this sound like a plan.

            This week: Sell Hazard and get a 4.9 or lower midfielder as bench fodder. Will have 12 players for next gameweek
            Next week: Sell Ings for Aguero.

            Just a random stat I just saw - Fulham had more expected goals than United in yesterday's match! 😀

              • 10 Years

              Penalty evened it out.

              1. Pierce34
                • 4 Years
                7 months, 10 days ago

                Exactly, without the penalty it would've been something like 2 for Fulham and 0.4-0.5 for United. Doesn't make much sense.

                  Only 1 penalty right?
                  More like 2 to 1.3

                    Yes of course, my mistake. The surprising thing is how Fulham should've won according to xG!

              That order form wise.
              Best to wait though.

            1FT. 0.0ITB

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

            Sane to who?

            a -4 to take sane out, although i have 12 players next gw? Yes or no
            (Already lost .1 value today will be .2)

              Ignore a drop in price. City have plenty of fixtures coming up, and Sane will get plenty of game time.

            I really really want a Doherty megahaul tomorrow, not just because I own him, but because one of my mates has captained him, after virtually giving up on the game. Didn’t help that I worked out everyone’s GW1 dead team scores and he’s worse off than if he’d done nothing all season...

                  Rough calculation of this week: his dead team = 71 all out. Actual team: 52 + Doherty (c), Jonny, Jimi

                I'm benching Ederson-Sane-Aguero for BGW27.
                Some great fixtures from GW28 onwards.
                And Sane will be back in the points at some stage.
                Hoping BGW is a borefest.

                    Ouch. Wolves masterclass to end the week hopefully.

                  There will still be plenty of Auba (C) and Rashford (C), and auto-subs to come in.

                    Yep. I'm hoping not too many high scoring bench fodders this week, but the VCs could bring in plenty.

                        I should clarify I am no where near the top. But it’s good to think it’s closer than it was

                    Incredible fantasy points today. Sterling owner with only Rashford and Jimenez as my forward line (Kamara is my third striker in a 3-5-2 formation). Was planning on Sterling and Richarlison out for Auba and maybe Maddison for the blank gameweek but reluctant to see the back of Raheem. Thoughts?

                      Keep Sterling remove Kamara

                        2nd highest scorer in the game this season. City on the up. Sell!

                      Which move do you prefer with 2FTs...

                      A) Sterling, Rich > Pogba, Mane
                      B) Aguero, Rich > Auba, Anderson

                      Midfield and attack is:
                      Salah Sterling Son Rich
                      Aguero Llorente Rashford

                        Anderson could actually be Maddison, not yet sure on which mid to get...

                        B and it s not even close.

                      Who would you rather get in for next week regardless of price?

                      A) Eriksen
                      B) Fanderson
                      C) Rondon
