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′).

  6. Tinmen

    Folks, I will have 6 players in the blank gameweek. Should I use my free hit? I still have WC available as well

    It seems like a no brainer to me but I’ve heard others in the same situation who aren’t using their free hit that week and I don’t understand why

    1. Fitzy.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      How many players do you expect most will have? You may have only a couple less than them - hardly worth throwing a FH away for.

      1. Tinmen
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        But how is it throwing a free hit away when it is GW31 of a possible 38?

        When will there possibly be a better chance to use it ?

        1. Fitzy.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          One of the DGWs? Or if you WC in GW32, then FH in GW33?

    2. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Reason why;

      1. FH potentially better used in GW32 with 11 DGWers.
      2. GW31 expected to be fairly low scoring, not many premium assets playing, and everyone will have the same premium players anyway.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        I think people are confused about FH32 because games not announced yet. There could be another 10 teams with 2nd game in 32

        1. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 26 days ago

          Quite possibly

      2. altan8797
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        what if we plan to play TC in GW32?

      3. Tinmen
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        How can there 11DGW players in 32 when only Wolves and United play twice?

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      FH33 makes much more sense to me.

      The ceiling that week is likely to be much higher. Also you could just be able to bring in Spurs assets for a juicy home match - that would put you well ahead of the pack

      I just don’t get why people are looking at FH 31 and not 33

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Because GW31 comes first 😉

    4. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Guest presenter on Always Cheating today said it right. WC is like moving house. FH32 with all the great DGW that will most likely happen is like a holiday to the Bahamas. FH31 is like a holiday to Skegness

      1. Dannyb
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        This, fh32 for me, can take a few hits to put me right for 33 if needed. Wc 34 and bench boost 35. I wasted my TC on Kuns Hattie haha

    Thoughts on this plan.

    Gw 30: Save FT
    GW 31: Sterling + Son + Doherty + Kamara > Maddison + Brooks + Azpi + Higuain (-8)

    Leaving me with 10 players for gw 31. Planning to FH 32

    Etheridge Ryan
    Robbo TAA Doherty Bennett Bednarek

    Rondon Barnes Kamara

    Appreciate feedback

    1. Jafalad

      Booting Doherty would concern me if he has a double in 32. You probably have quite a bit of value in him.

      1. King Kohli
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        Can do the same moves with Bennett.

  9. Gunner Boy

    With all Chips still available

    WC now or wait?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      WC now seems like giving up powerful chip better used later

    2. Dannyb

      No

  10. Little Red Lacazette
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Højbjerg -> Fraser a good move?

    Fabianski
    Robbo TAA Pereira
    Son Salah Pogba Anderson
    Higuain Jimenez Rashford

    Boruc Schär Doherty Højbjerg

    1. kuzser

      Yes

  11. kuzser
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Keep falling like a rock ...already 6th in a ML which I was leading by 50 points at NY time. Pogba(c) and Auba along with just bought Luiz no-show (another option was to get Higuain for Auba) just killing it.

    How to start climbing up? Will really appreciate some advice (all chips intact, fh32), 1ft,
    1) save
    2) auba->Higuain
    3) auba, pogba-> Higuain mane for

    Fab
    Luiz Robbo Pereira awb
    Salah pogba Anderson barnes
    Aguero Auba
    Subs: Jimenez, Lejeune, McNeil

  12. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

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

    Fab
    TAA/Pereira/Luiz
    Salah/Mane/Hazard
    Barnes/Vardy/Higuain

    Probably would squeeze in Cherries defender also. Or do you see the need of some WH or Cherries attackers?

    1. Jafalad
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Only Fraser and King appeal from BOU. I'd give their ds a wide berth.

  13. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Morning all,

    Anyone know how attacking Fredericks is for West Ham? Thinking to get a WH defender in for Jonny and whilst Rice is the obvious pick, i wonder if Fredericks might be a nice differential?

  14. GoonerByron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Should I get rid of Son or Lacazette this GW for Hazard or Higuain or wait a week and do both then?

    Fabinski
    TAA - Luiz - Pereira
    Salah - Son - Anderson - Maddison
    Laca - Firm - Rondon

    Button - Maguire - Camarasa - Bennett

    1FT, 3.2 ITB

    1. MaticMVP
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Laca to Higuain.

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Don't sale Son this week. Sell him just before gw31

  15. Simmoo
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    I am in a situation where I now have two non-playing goalkeepers and no free transfers.

    Is there anything to suggest Guaita or Patricio will be back in this week?

    1. MaticMVP
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Patricio will probably play.

      1. mookie

        +1
        Wait for pressers

  16. HamezMace
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    I hope Callum Wilson is soaking in a bath of horse placenta right now, him playing in GW31 is very important to me

  17. Flapjack
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    TAA and Salah owner

    Was gonna get Mane, but recent performances and even this article make me just wanna go for VVD or maybe Robbo

    Anyone thinking the same ? Preferably those not already tripled up and biased 😉

    1. Jafalad
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I've been playing VVD and TAA as a differential. 50 points from that pair in the last two gameweeks. VVD matches Mane's total points for 3 million less.

    2. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I'm a Robertson/Salah owner, I was set on doing Son to Hazard prior to GW31, but now I'm considering Mane actually.

      Fulham looked better yesterday, but I'd still expect a Liverpool clean sheet against them in 31, so a defensive double up wouldn't be the worst thing.

    3. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Tough one, Mane is a top mid. option for the next few but Liverpool defense EO is huge.

    4. A message to you Rudi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Form suggests invest in Defence. In the same predicament. Leaning towards TAA or VVD as I already have Robbo.

      Manè could be the one though lol. Headache.

    5. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I went for Robbo (this last week) over Mane cos they're misfiring in attack

      I'm happy with that choice, as it let's me get Hazard in 31.

      Not that he's ripping up trees, butvhey

    6. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Aside from the Watford game Liverpool haven’t been scoring enough to justify doubling up on their attack as much as they are justifying doubling up on their defence with the cleansheets they are racking up.

  18. jake0910
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 26 days ago

    Doherty to TAA a good move? Bought him at 5.1

    Should I pull trigger either of these?

    Exact money for: Doherty + Jimenez to Rice + Vardy for -4

    Could also do this with 0.2itb: Doherty + Pogba to Rice + Hazard for -4

      Given Pog will likely be useful for the run-in, think I’d go with the first option

    1 FT this week 4.2m ITB so money not an issue

    a) Son --> Haz
    b) Jimmy --> Vardy (Will free hit jimmy back in for GW31)

      B. Assume you mean FH for 32.

      Son could do the job against Southampton

    Holding both Guaita and Patricio who were both dropped at the weekend. Hoping Pat comes back (although he has Chelsea) but Guaita could be benched for a while. Thoughts on suitable replacement? Fabianski?

      Fab for saves, but clean sheets are sporadic.

      1. Jet5605
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 26 days ago

        West Ham are so inconsistent and quite poor away from home. Would like Allison but already have 3 LIV. Fab seems the best of a mediocre bunch.

    What is the scout cast guy’s strategy over the blanks & doubles ... they normally do the same as eachother ... any one know how they are approaching things ?

    Starting to think about Free Hit in GW31 now and just load up on Liverpool. Chelsea & Leicester. I want to hold Wolves and Utd assets into 32

    Fab, Foster
    Robbo, TAA, Doc, Kola, Peltier
    Salah, Sterling, Pogba, Deulofeu, Hayden
    Kun, Rashford, Jiménez

    1.1M ITB 2FT

    If I don’t FH then;
    GW30: Kola & Deulofeu > Chilwell & Maddison
    GW31: Sterling & Kun > Hazard & Higuain (-4)

    Holding off an early transfer as have just enough money for the GW30 transfer.

    Appreciate any thoughts.

    Save the FT? Will make 3 transfers in GW31 to get 10 starters.

    Ederson
    Digne / TAA / AWB
    Salah / Anderson / B Silva / Pogba
    Jimenez / Higuain / Barnes

    Subs: Hamer / Hayden / Shaw / Doherty

    1. Lazarus Star

      Save or do one of your GW31 transfers now. Depends on what favours the GW30 fixture.

    7.5m to bring a midfielder in, thoughts on who? Brooks, Fraser, Maddison, other?

    1. Lazarus Star
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I’d be looking at Leicester assets for 31; Maddison or Barnes.
      Less keen on Bournemouth.

  30. Vobinho - Holly's Hams…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Non owner here but Salah is equally annoying. He seemed to have all the chances yesterday, so have a feeling he will haul big time soon.

    Burnley, Fulham and Southampton next. (FH for the Spurs game)

    Would you restructure or keep the trio of VVD, Robbo, Mane?

    1. Lazarus Star
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      I’d rather have an be frustrated than not have and be left behind.

      Which player would you be looking at upgrading? Seems like a fair bit of surgery
