Scout Notes

Away form a cause for concern for Liverpool’s attacking assets

The final match of a largely dispiriting Gameweek 29 was suitably underwhelming.

Many Fantasy managers endured an awful Saturday and there was to be little consolation on Sunday evening for those hoping for goals at Goodison Park.

While Liverpool’s defenders returned yet more clean sheet and bonus points for their owners in a goalless Merseyside derby, the Reds’ attacking assets once again flattered to deceive on the road.

The Reds’ next away match happens to be in Blank Gameweek 31, when many FPL bosses will be opting for a Liverpool double or triple-up – but there may be nagging doubts creeping in regarding the captaincy credentials of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane after this latest showing.

The fact that Fulham have conceded at least two or more goals in each of their last four home matches offers plenty of hope that Liverpool’s lean spell away from Anfield will come to an end, though the Cottagers did deliver a spirited showing in the west London derby on Sunday.

Liverpool’s form in their last five away league matches now reads: P5, W1, D3, L1, F3, A3.

The record of the Reds’ first-choice front three – Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino – in those fixtures is exactly the same: five appearances, one goal, no assists.

Liverpool’s remaining four away fixtures (Fulham, Southampton, Cardiff and Newcastle) look a darn sight more appealing than the five they have just contested (trips to both Manchester clubs and a Merseyside derby among them) but their subdued attacking displays on the road in 2019 give legitimate cause for concern.

When all 20 top-flight clubs are filtered by their last four away matches, the Reds (who most recently faced Brighton, West Ham, an injury-hit Manchester United and Everton) sit in the bottom half of the table for goals scored, overall goal attempts and shots on target, while they sit tenth for efforts in the opposition box.

Their latest muted performance is the subject of our Scout Notes piece below.

Everton 0-0 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah (£13.5m) delivered his fifth blank in six Gameweeks on Sunday afternoon.

When penalties are stripped away, the Egyptian has three goals and two assists in the last 11 Gameweeks.

Salah’s only attacking return away from home in 2019 was indeed from the penalty spot in the victory over Brighton in Gameweek 22.

There is little wrong with the 2017/18 Player of the Year’s underlying stats, however, even on the road.

Salah sits top or joint-top among FPL midfielders for attempts in the box, shots on target and big chances over the last six away matches and completely outshines Sadio Mane (£9.7m), whose figures are only half as good as the Egypt international’s or worse over the same period.

Sunday’s showing at Goodison Park was another one of Salah’s “almost” displays.

Two of Liverpool’s best chances in the Merseyside derby fell at the feet of Salah, who spurned a one-on-one opportunity against Jordan Pickford (£4.9m) in the first half and then later dithered long enough in a similar situation to allow Michael Keane (£4.8m) to stage a last-gasp intervention.

Salah’s touch has always been inconsistent – even in his phenomenal 2017/18, the Egyptian’s tendency to get dispossessed, dribble down cul-de-sacs or waste “big chances” saw him repeatedly penalised on the Bonus Points System.

When Liverpool aren’t creating as many opportunities to mask those failings, Salah’s shortcomings are all the more apparent.

As one would expect, Jurgen Klopp defended the Egyptian after full-time:

When you see the situation, he’s doing everything right [until] the last moment. We had our moments. There’s no reason for taking it or not taking it.

There’s all different things. It’s really the pitch sometimes. The boys are able to score situations like this but it’s an inch on the boot.

On another day, he scores two or three and today not. That’s all that happened. Absolutely stay cool and play football, fight for everything and everything will be fine in the end. That’s how it is.

The time will inevitably come, perhaps in the next few Gameweeks, when Salah will convert a couple of those “big chances” into another double-digit haul.

The fear of missing out on those returns is what inevitably drives Fantasy managers to retain the Egyptian’s services in spite of the barren run, with Salah still the most-owned player in FPL.

Mane’s ownership has rocketed over the last few Gameweeks as his form at Anfield demanded attention but the Senegalese midfielder’s recent record on the road is just as bad as Salah’s: on Sunday, the former Southampton winger didn’t register a single shot or key pass and touched the ball just once in the Everton area, despite playing as the “centre-forward” in Klopp’s 4-3-3.

The contrast between Liverpool’s form at Anfield and their recent record on the road is stark but Klopp prickled when a reporter suggested that he may have shown more ambition on Sunday:

Do you think we didn’t take enough risks today? Was there any draw where we didn’t try to win? Bring on an extra attacker and football changes? It is not like that. We are offensive enough, football doesn’t work like that.

You need the right things in the right moment and that doesn’t only work if another striker [is on the pitch]. You cannot start with four or five strikers in a striker way with nothing else to do than to try to score. We are an offensive team and that’s absolutely OK – we take a risk, no doubt about it, but it is not like that.

You cannot play in the Premier League like that; we play next week against Burnley and if we play only offensive, they [will] kill us on the counter-attack, 100 per cent. We take all the risks, but you cannot take more than 100 per cent risk. It’s not about ‘going nuts’, it’s not about that.

Liverpool did have their openings on Sunday: as well as Salah’s two gilt-edged opportunities, Fabinho (£5.5m) should have done better with what Opta deemed a “big chance” from a set play, while Joel Matip (£4.9m) headed a corner wide and Mane could only nod a Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) cross back across goal when well-placed.

The fit-again Firmino was only among the substitutes for this encounter but, along with James Milner (£5.6m), was thrown on with 27 minutes to go.

Klopp explained his decision to start both players on the bench ahead of kick-off:

Millie just felt a little bit his hamstring. If Millie gives a warning sign… I think he would have been fine but the last two days he felt it still. So there is no reason for risk, especially when we have options on the bench, which we had in the last game.

Hendo is a very, very important player for us, so it’s good he can be back.

Bobby trained yesterday and it looked really good, so he is on the bench because he could be an option. I didn’t think it was necessary to bring him immediately after the good game we played on Wednesday.

While their attacking assets toiled, Liverpool’s defence racked up their 17th clean sheet of the season – as many as they registered in the whole of 2017/18.

Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) was sublime at centre-back, while Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.4m) banked maximum bonus points despite his delivery from dead-ball situations being not quite as on-point as it was against Watford in midweek.

Not that Everton didn’t have their chances: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.3m) produced a tame header from a pinpoint Lucas Digne (£5.2m) corner, while Bernard (£5.9m) was inches away from connecting with a low Richarlison (£6.5m) centre as the hosts pushed for an unlikely winner.

Richarlison had been dropped to the bench for this encounter, with compatriot Bernard replacing him on the left flank, but looked hungrier than he did against Cardiff when thrown on as a second-half substitute.

This wasn’t really a match to gauge Everton’s attacking assets from a Fantasy perspective but Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.2m) grafted admirably in “the hole”, while the Toffees’ backline were uncharacteristically solid after their recent struggles at home.

It’s back-to-back clean sheets for the blue half of Merseyside following their win in South Wales and Marco Silva was content at full-time:

In my opinion, in the second half we were better and in the final 20-30 minutes, we controlled the game.

We had a good chance with Bernard but so did they with Mo Salah. It was a very good moment for Michael [Keane] dealing with that.

We spoke at half-time about how we wanted to press higher and improve how we applied our pressure in midfield.

We had a few moments where had we had made a different decision in our attack, it could have give us the chance to win the match.

But it was a clean sheet in a tough match against a strong side. We did well, it is just unfortunate we couldn’t get all three points.

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Schneiderlin (Andre Gomes 76′), Gueye; Walcott (Richarlison 59′), Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin (Tosun 74′).

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum (Milner 63′); Salah, Mane (Lallana 84′), Origi (Firmino 63′).

          It takes about 15 seconds to find in the rules...

            Maddison to Barnes, so I can afford Rondon and Aguero to Vardy and Higuain next GW? All for free and will give me about 0.8 itb.

            Good idea?

              no way
              barnes ineffective yesterday, and subbed off not long after 60

              im looking at a way to get maddison in myself

                Hmm. I'll have to find another way then.

              Don’t sell Maddison. I watched the match yesterday and he was easily Leicester’s best attacker. Chilwell was impressive too.

              1. SirT83

              Doherty's post GW33 fixtures are very good and you might want him back for that run which could be costly if you got him when he was under £4.5m

                    With similar squad I’m doing Pogba and Jota to Hazard and Brooks. Plan B is just Fraser if Brooks has a knock

                  What are the chances of him starting the next couple of games

                    High imo
                    They can't rely on scoring from set pieces forever. I'll most likely buy him this week.

                  Will FH32 WC34. Below worth a -8?

                  Pogba-Iwobi-Jimenez to Hazard-Brooks-Higuain

                    You want to lose Pogba?

                      Would rather have haz as he plays 31/33 and has a better 30 fixture. Will probably bring back on WC34

                    Exact money to do Doherty > TAA this GW, but would lose about 0.6 in value in Doherty - should I do it?

                    Only thing I'm really holding him for is the doubles, but this week's team selection suggests he's a serious rotation risk for those.

                      Imagine if you did that move 2 games ago ... you can’t carry that .5 into next season either 😉

                    Gameweek 29 Rough with the Smooth

                    How did your GW28 go? Did your transfers pay off? Did a hit turn out badly? How did your bench perform?

                    Feel free to post your tales of joy and woe from Gameweek 29 here:

                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Smooth - AWB got 5 points.

                      Rough - Doherty came on and blocked AWBs 5 points 😆

                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Rough: 19 points.
                      Smooth: I don't think I've ever scored below 20 before, so I guess it's an achievement of sorts. 😀

                      Rice 3rd on bench. -4 Son and Kosc to Mane and TAA worked out. Then Pat Button took another -4 Pat to Ryan Boruc or Guaita. Went Guaita 🙁

                      Rough: Pog (c) and Auba. 20+ point swing from last minute pens

                      Smooth: Trent, Vardy...and Ashley Barnes just keeps doing it!

                      Rough - Pogba Captain

                      Smooth: Sold Pereira & Son for TAA & Hazard
                      Ryan getting some crucial points to get a respectable total

                      Rough: Taking a -8

                      Smooth: I brought in Haz, Ryan and Higuain for this move

                      • 3 Years
                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Rough - moved the armband from Hazard to Pogba at the last minute after reading the garbage on here about Hazard being rested or injured
                      Smooth - Auba & Solanke to Vardy & Higuaín for -4,

                      Played Deulofeu over Richarlison. That worked. Jiminez sparked joy for me...

                      But 0-pointers from Pereira and Dubravka took the shine off things somewhat. 36 all out, dropped from 29k to 36k.

                      Still feels like a good week to have a bad week though.

                      Smooth: TAA (again).
                      Rough: Digne bench (again) & Pogba (C)

                      Yedlin and Jonny were no shows but I got some jammy bench points from Digne and Keane. Same thing happened last week when Firmino and Yedlin didn't play. Also sold Firmino for Higuaín

                      In a disastrous game-week Son to Sterling for a hit turns out to be a smooth as it stopped me giving the armband to Pogba.

                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Smooth: Taking a minus 8 to remove Sane, Patricio and Aubameyang, for Sterling (c), Fabianski and Vardy, for a positive net swing of 13 points.

                      Rough: the rest of my team. Not owning Jiminez, basically.

                      39 (-8) so concludes a rank trebling in 5 gameweeks.

                      Still beat Jay Egersdorff this week though!

                        3 months, 14 days ago

                        Nice -8.

                        No backup to Pat? So guess that was 0. +6 for Fab
                        Sane to Sterling +2
                        Auba to Vardy +9
                        Sterling captain over ? (I'd assume Pog?) +4

                        Guessing at Pog as can't see your team!

                          Cheers, that was the only positive this week really! Yeah Button was my backup keeper. Sane to Sterling was +3, but i also captained Sterling so another 3 points there. Don't know who I would have captained if I hadn't got Sterling in all honesty, either Salah or Pogba I imagine.

                          Yeah I don't know how to link my team lol. Although the way the last 5 weeks has gone thats probabaly not a bad thing! 😀

                            Ah sorry, I though Sane came on for a 1 pointer!

                            Who would have played in his place?

                            Sorry I'm obsessed with working out if hits pay off. I am sure this has though!

                              It would have been Kenneth Zohore coming off the bench for a 2 pointer haha

                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Rollercoaster for me this week...

                      Rough:

                      Pogba (C) - that makes it 5 blanks in the past 6 weeks for my captain. This includes the 1 point sane triple captain disaster. Worst string of captains I’ve ever had.

                      Wan bissaka 1st sub and Doherty coming on, despite wolves being 2-0 up.

                      All my rivals own Jonny, who didn’t come on. And therefore got AWB’s points from the bench.

                      Smooth:

                      Absolute dream scenario:

                      Sold auba last week and bought in Barnes this week.

                      Auba misses a penalty, which is saved by lloris, who I own.

                      Barnes scores in the dying minutes to reduce AWB down to a 5 pointer.

                      Vardy and Jimenez doing work too.

                      Overall a small green arrow...hanging on in there at around 8k

                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Rough: had the armband on Jimenez(12) all week, until the rumors that several players will be rested.

                      Smooth: 57 points and up to 6k OR without ever owning the top two highest scoring players in the game.

                      • 3 Years

                      Jiménez (C) and Jota oh wait I transfer Jota to Barnes as I had 2FT and moved the armband to Pogba at 11:16AM.

                      My GK's were Pat and Guaita, Doherty came on (had Wan B first on bench) and I played Maddison over Ward Prowse...... nuff said!

                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Smooth: 53 points in a poor gameweek,
                      Boruc off the bench for Guiata a particular highlight.
                      Robo+Trent cleanie, hazard captain seems fortunate considering and jiminez doing it again. I actually needed the 1pt from Doherty due to kola being benched and kiko being injured. Moved into top 4k, exactly rank 3700.

                      Rough:
                      Pogmiss, kept faith in son, bench falling apart a bit.

                      smooth - Luiz no show for Rice 15 pointer.
                      Rough - Vardy potential injury/doc 1 pointer.

                      • 3 Years
                      3 months, 14 days ago

                      Rough - Pogba (c), Boruc on my bench and played Heaton.

                      Smooths - VVD, Robbo,Diop, Jimenez, Vardy

                      47 points for the week and another small green to move up to 250K, also 2FT's for next week allowing a mini WC to build for the blanks.

                      Smoothisssimo.

                      Adam Levy, the leader of both our main FFS League and our FFS Members League, captained Higuaín for a game-week score of 68 points to bring his total to exactly 2000 points, and is now number one in the world with a 25 point lead over his nearest rival.

                      They had both triple captained Aguero in GW25 but he still has his other three chips available, whilst his rival has already played his Second Wildcard, and Adam also has a far higher Team Value, so his prospects are looking very bright.

                      And if he had entered the January to May League he would have been leading that by 53 points too!

                      Rough - Doherty benching, Pogba pen missing and Newcastle blanking

                      59 pts can't complain to much, up to 23k OR from 31. Up and up

                      rough: Doherty

                      smooth: Going to argue that Kun, Salah and Pogba were smooths this week because of the large numbers that captained them. Any one of those had come off and i'd probably have been looking at a red arrow. Captained Haz and that small point difference was enough to make the difference on a low GW.
                      Double Liverpool defence again, Barnes,Fabs.
                      All contributed to 58 pts.
                      Been stuck around 50k since GW16 but a decent 14 pts over top 10k average has jumped me to 30k and another top 10k finish in sight again.
                      People need to remember it can just take the 1 GW to turn things around because the OR point spread is so small.

                        Well, for top 10k Kun and Salah were sub 100% EO. If you own them you still wanted them to do well. If you owned Rashford then that Pogba pen miss probably cost you rank (even with Pog at 130% EO in the top 10k).

                      Smooth: Used my two free transfers to do Aubameyang and Richarlison (0) to Barnes and Hazard (18) as captained Hazard. Made all the more sweeter as I would have captained Pogba (-1) otherwise. Also got a Boruc 6-pointer off the bench for Rui P despite Bournemouth conceding.

                      Rough: AWB third sub.

                      Smooth - Duffy clean sheet and all bonus points, Vardy scored, Hazard in for Son

                        Rough : Not this week. Can have Pogba -1 anytime if it helps with schadenfreude

                        - An unexpected 7 points from Digne. CS from Robbo and Fab too.
                        - Although I own him, got to include Pogba's penalty miss as I'm sure this must have worked in my favour.

                        Rough:
                        - Doherty benching denying me another clean sheet.
                        - Salah and Mane blanking.

                        Owned double Wolves defence since GW9 (the week after Doherty got his last double digit return). Thought it would finally pay off this week with a plum fixture, but Patricio and Doherty were rested/dropped...

                          Exactly the same for me mate. It was typical that they finally kept a clean sheet too lol.

                        Smooth: Bennett sub for Luiz, Jimenez, Hazard, Robbo, Ryan all returning.

                        Decent week aside from that missed pen, would have been around 60 otherwise. Green arrow slight climb in OR from 28.1k to 27.6k.

                        Rough: Brought in Luiz for Doherty for free due to the teams leaks. Luiz did not play, and Pereira was first up on bench...

                        smooth: new-signers for blanks vardy and hazard in the points paying off the -4 already, solid green arrow from 88k -> 70k i guess on the back of many pogba captainers

                        Smooth: Jiminez Jota Vardy Higuain Fabianski and Robertson meant green arrow and recover some of the ground lost when without Aguero when he hauled

                        Smooth:
                        Did Son + Laporte > Sterling + Rice (enabler) for a -4 hit 30 mins before deadline.

                        Instead of Son(2) + Pereira(0) + (C)Pogba(-2) for 0 points total

                        I got Rice (15) + (C)Sterling(6) + Pogba (-1) giving me extra 16 points minus the hit. Benched pereira.

                        Overall 56(-4) = 52 points

                        3 months, 14 days ago

                        Smooth: Took a -8 for a few Chesea players and Aguero.

                        Old team:
                        Aubameyang = -1
                        Rashford = 2
                        Son = 2
                        Sane = no-show (2 off the bench)
                        Captain Sterling = 3

                        New team:
                        Aguero = 2
                        Kante = 2
                        Hazard = 6
                        Higuain = 8
                        Captain Higuain = 8

                        Transfer cost = -8
                        Total profit = 10 points

                        I got lucky with Aubameyang missing his late penalty against Lloris, although a goal would only have scored him 4 more points (no bonus).

                        I got a little unlucky that Chelsea didn't get more at Fulham. Hazard was looking rampant and Kante, for example, could have won him a penalty through a cross which smacked againsts a defenders hand.

                        Avoiding Pogba captaincy was obviously smooth. Incidentally, if may be allowed to stir the pot, I have captained him twice before with an average return of 34 points! 😀

                        Also incidentally, Higuain was my 14th unique captain this season. 452 total captaincy points this season, so picking and choosing each week isn't going too badly.

                        Double Wolves defence dissapointing again, with a single point to show for despite a clean sheet. Both Patricio and Doherty were benched, with Doherty managing to achieve an appearance point. However, I did get Boruc off the bench for for an impressive 6 points against City in a 1-0 loss, which smoothed things over.

                        After Saturdays games, I had a total of -3 (negative three) points after hits, with 4 played, and had slipped from 26k to 56k (albeit with 6 Boruc points waiting on the bench = 3pts from 5 players).

                        Sunday's Chelsea game helped remedy that, but it was the final game of the weekend, the Merseyside derby, that gave me the real, and most unexpected, boost. The ideal result for me, 0-0, came through, with a clean sheet for Robertson, Trent and Digne, with Digne coming off my bench for Martial. They accrued 4 bonus points between them to give me a total of 21 points from those three players alone (pale in comparison to their heroic 36 points last gameweek!).

                        This brought my total to 48 points after hits, and once Boruc and Digne autsubbed in, I shot back up to 24k, even improving on my original rank, and shocking me to my very core.

                        Had 2 transfer this week, did Son and Auba OUT, Hazard and Vardy IN.

                        Rough – Doherty on bench then coming on for a point while Wolves kept a clean sheet. Pereira being a terrible buy. Richarlison coming on which blocked Chambers goal off the bench. Salah (c) fail. Pogba penalty miss which also meant no assist for Rashford. Mitro should have scored. Digne sat on my bench.

                        Smooth – Ederson clean sheet. Robertson clean sheet. Hazard asssit. Vardy goal.

                        36 points. Rubbish and dropped out of top 10k for first time in a long while.

                        Rough:
                        Wolves one clean sheet in last 11 matches: Both Patricio and Doherty rested for one of the easiest matches of the season. Wolves clean sheet of course. Doherty comes on for 1 pointer.
                        Rashford gains last minute penalty which Pogba© misses
                        Wan Bikassa and Ward-Prowse on bench

                        rough, Pogba, Auba, sold Lloris for a hit because i'm building a team for dgw 32 and i didn't think (correctly) he would keep a clean sheet and that my new keeper Ederson would, so my thinking was i'd break even on the hit and use my 1 free transfer this week on something else other than a keeper 🙁

                        Smooth, Jota, Ederson keeping a clean sheet so my hit to bring him in wasn't a complete disaster

                          Son and Aubameyang out Hazard and Vardy in
                          And on the saturday morning during the breakfast club changed captain from Pogba to Hazard. Not massive gains but 20 points difference if I'd stuck with original decision to free hit so very pleased otherwise would have had aubameyangs minus points and captained pogba as well 😀

                          Smooth: Jimenez and the rare CS for Fabianski, that's about it.

                          Smooth: Kola Son Aguero to TAA Haz Vardy

                          Even though Digne would’ve come on for Kola I totaled 8 point gain after the hit.

                            Also forgot to confirm my captain change second week running. Got 6 instead of -2, last week got 18 instead of 6. Dumb drunken luck

                          Smooth: Had JWP come off my bench as 2nd sub after Kolasinac and Luiz no shows. 49 points despite Pogba (C) and a green arrow so up to 7k overall.

                          Transferred out : Kolasinac, Richarlson and Aubameyang

                          Bought : TAA, Sterling and A. Barnes

                          Initially had Captain on Pogba but changed to Sterling and avoiding a double -1 !!

                          Smooth - 63 points. Brought in Higuain for Auba and captained him instead of Pogba. +18 point swing.

                          Smooth- bought in Ashley Barnes for Rashford and played Wan-Bissaka (Benched Doherty)

                          Rough - swapped position of Pereira for AWB at the last minute.

                          Smooth- one of my better ones this season, took out Kolasinac and Lacazette for Rice and captain Higuain resulting in 29 point difference as I would have captained Aguero

                          Rough: Took a hit to bring in David Luiz and Pedro

                          Smooth: Luiz's no-show meant I got Rice's 15 points off the bench. That combined with hauls from Jota and Jiminez got me 60 points and nice big green arrow

                            Rough, Had the armband on Jimenez until someone posted Wolves were planning 4/5 changes (which did turn out to be true) causing me to reconsider. Ended up Capt Pogba.

                            Worst part is, this all happened Saturday morning. A time I'd normally be at work & offline, but due to illness (& I'm NEVER ill) I was at home with access to the site.

                            Benched AWB to boot.

                            Smooth, sold Auba, Son, Kola (1pt Combined) for Hig, Mane, Luiz (11pts combined) not really a smooth but I'll take what little comfort I can from a -8 playing off.

                          Rough Salah (c) and Pogba -1
                          Smooth Auba to Higuain 9 point swing
                          48 points and a small green arrow back up to 15K from 17K, Still some way to go to get back to top 5K pre first double game week.
                          All chips and wildcard left, hope to get back to the top 5K

                          Slightly smooth was doing Aubameyang + Son + McCarthy ---( -4 )--> Vardy + Sterling (c) + Fabianski and getting a net +15 score from them.
                          Even smoother was going double West Ham defence and playing Rice!

                          58 points giving me a MUCH needed green arrow and an 80k OR rise in my worst season yet!

                            How is Jimenez a bandwagon? He's been scoring consistently all season long.

                              Probably best value of the season

                          Good morning

                          Those without the WC chip, what are your strategies?

                          I am building carefully towards GW31 (not bringing in rubbish I will have to shift in the future)
                          FH 32
                          TC 33 or 36
                          BB 34

                          What do you think? Any others in the same boat?

                            Build for 32 / 35, FH 31, BB32/35, ignore 33, TC 35/32

                              3 months, 14 days ago

                              Ignore 31 FH 33

                              Played my wildcard few weeks ago which has pushed me right back into top 1k using different strategy from most. Worrying not having WC ahead of bench boost but like you suggest a few key transfers before 35 (double gameweek) and will hopefully pan out ok. No idea withTC just go on instinct

                                Cheers mate. I am just above 2k and feeling ok about my bunch at the moment. Taken back to back -8s too and make sure I am in relatively good shape.

                                Fingers crossed!

                              Yes that should read BB 35 not 34

                              Yeah I am. Only have 4 at the minute for 31 and only really want two of those so it makes sense for me.

                              Main cash league rival is now 1pt behind. All chips left except I have TC and he doesn't. Would love if he played FH31

                            I already have Mane/Salah.

                            Better option?

                            A. TAA + Azpi/Alonso (I have DLuiz)
                            B. Robertson + Ake/or some other defender for max 5.3

                            Yedlin and Jonny were no shows but I got some jammy bench points from Digne and Keane. Same thing happened last week when Firmino and Yedlin didn't play. Also sold Firmino for Higuaín.

                            What would you say about this team for 31&33?

                            Probably would squeeze in Cherries defender also

                              Or do you see the need of some WH or Cherries attackers?

                                Arnie and Wilson both very tempting, but they are also both injury doubts.

                                Triple Chelsea is either a master stroke or not!!! I’m going to settle for two.

                                Add a Bournemouth defender for a hit in my view. You should get 4 from it anyway as they’re decent at home and there’s a reasonable cs chance

                                B purely bc I don’t think double Chelsea defence would work out
