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′).

      2. PL Ball

        No clue what to do with this team (FH 32):

        Lloris (Speroni)
        Wan-B | Pereira | Robertson (Lascelles | Connolly)
        Salah | Pogba | Son | Barnes (Billing)
        Aguero | Jiminez | Arnie

        2FTs. 2.3 ITB.

        Tempted to take Son out now, but seems silly with Soton coming up.

        Any ideas lads?

        1. Kopkloppers

          Might be wise to FH31.

          1. liverpool01
              3 months, 16 days ago

              Yeh true

            • PL Ball
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 16 days ago

              Could you kindly explain your reasoning?

              1. Kopkloppers
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 16 days ago

                Well you have Lloris WanB Robbo Salah Pogba Son Kun Jimi who you would want to keep in the DGW's or general form. (8 players) So all you need is another 3 players to get 11 as you know TC and BB cannot be used.
                Secondly, who knows waht GW32 DGW's are for sure and we might not know untii late.
                Thirdly, to get 11 decent players in GW31 you will lose money on assets and sell some you need to get a decent 11.
                At the moment you only have 6 players playing GW31
                Maths I think.

          2. liverpool01

              Team looks great I would switch Jimenez to King, great fixture for him against Huddersfield and plays in GW 31

            • The Tinkerman
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 16 days ago

              Get a playing goal keeper for 31/33?

            • Moosie the Staggie
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 16 days ago

              Speroni to Boruc

            Not been on here a while, good to be back.

            Current rank is 4k, baring that in mind would you pull the trigger this GW or next?

            Son & Jiminez -> Maddison & Higuian

            May be priced out in a few days.

            The amount of value lost in getting rid of pogba,rash and Doherty hurts my soul.
            Got rash at 7.3
            Got pog at 8.7
            Got Doh at 4.9

            To cover 31 & 33, would you opt for Luiz or TAA?

            I'm not sure. Luiz feels safer but TAA may have more potential...

            What do you think?

            Free hit in 32 and WC 34

              3 months, 16 days ago

              Not the first move, would look at a Liverpool defender instead? The Cook to TAA move looks good.

                Saying that Cook plays in both blank gameweeks. If you have free-hit perhpaps Doherty to TAA?

                    Easy move then. Cook out. Groin injuries typically take 3 weeks. Bad ones 5-6 so personally I wouldn't take the risk to hold. Your shout

            What's the deal with Guaita, does anyone know why he was dropped / rested?

              My guess is he's a similar standard to Hennessy. Neither will really be nailed if Roy feels the same.

            Accept I'm going to lose some value (Given I got them so cheap) but best moves here? Have 1FT.
            a) Pogba > Hazard
            b) Son > Hazard

              Just take hits to get in more. Each minus four is recouped in appearances.

              Bare minimum imo. As past comments have advised would look at a couple hits

            5. Moosie the Staggie
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 16 days ago

              I would 100% take hits to get in 11.
              Usually it works out as a minus 2 with appearance points but it's even less than that as you will have them for gw33 too.

            Aguero.

            Thinking about dumping him in 31 for Higuain if City blank in 33.
            This week. Save
            31, Aguero,Jota > Higuain,7.9m (11 starters)
            32. Aguero back in on FH
            33. Aguero blank.

              Dump is such a harsh word for a being who's given you so much.

            What a fool! Done Doherty to Ake because I had exact funds then realised I'm .2 short of doing Kun + Jimenez to Vardy + Higuain for free next week, whoops.

              Well, Hig rose last night. Vardy rose a few days ago. That's probably why.

            I don't have a FH but made 28 points in GW9.
            I have a problem but:
            1) I already have 6 DGW's in GW32 hoping Chelsea have a double then.
            I have 3 Pool and I would keep 2 of them anyway.
            I can take 3 hits (12 points) and have the side I want.
            Did I do the right thing in GW9?

              all depends on how FHer perform in GW31-35 period and how you do during that period

              if you can manage to get green arrows in most of the weeks in that period,you win

                Effects of earlier collision should be fine

                B for me, although some may call it blind faith!
                Vardy was taken off due to concussion from the clash with Foster so he will be fine despite the flag.

              The faith in salah is astounding! I'd say sterling has a higher ceiling than vardy so him.

            Hi all, couple of quick questions:

            1) What to do with Richarlison? he looked decent when he came on yesterday but will he get his place back in the team? Did silva say anything?

            2) Currently have both Sterling and Kun..thinking to downgrade one of them to fund Schindler >> TAA. Do we reckon both of them will start this weekend? Slightly leaning towards downgrading Aguero as i think he might be rested. If the opinion is that neither will get rested, i could still do Digne >> TAA and start Jimenez but more inclined to do Schindler >> TAA, start Digne and then bench Jimenez

            2Fts and 0.6m itb.

            Fabianski -- Button
            Lascelles Digne Pereira -- Doherty Schindler
            Salah Pogba Sterling Rich -- Hayden
            Jimenez King Aguero

            Which would you rather:
            1.Jimenez to King play Barnes
            2. Jimenez + Kola > King and Rice (-4) bench Barnes
            3. Kola to Rice (bench Barnes play Jimenez)

                      Actually mate plan was getting King Brooks in for Llorente Jota (-4). But I did only the former and now have....

                      Subs: Button, Camarasa, Doherty, Jota

                      For the BGW 31 and 33 then doing :
                      Son Jota Doherty to Hazard Brooks Ake
                      and will have a full team

                      *Keepin Pogba as I got him cheap

                      Good plan?

                    32, and don't see major surgery required down the line.

                    For example - bournemouth and liverpool have good fixtures for a long time, will keep pogba and aguero/sterling so the majority of the team is long term.

                      Yeah it's a risk. But he's showing poor form and I've got 2FT so gotta use one. And I want another Pool defender for the blanks. I'd wait but then I'd lose a transfer.
