Salah unfortunate not to score big against Burnley

Gameweek 30 proved to be another unfortunate round of action for Mohamed Salah (£13.4m).

Captained by more managers than any other player this weekend, he came away from Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Burnley with just an assist.

As Liverpool options are going to be hugely important for Blank Gameweeks 31 and 33, we’ve assessed their key players after their latest win.

Liverpool 4-2 Burnley

Goals: Sadio Mané x2 (£9.8m), Roberto Firmino x2 (£9.2m) | Ashley Westwood (£4.6m), Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m)

Assists: Mohamed Salah (£13.4m), Daniel Sturridge (£5.6m) | Matej Vydra (£5.6m)

Salah was very close to a hat-trick of assists on Sunday afternoon but managed to secure just one against Burnley. After seeing his squared ball to Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) reach its intended destination, despite touches from Tom Heaton (£4.8m) and James Tarkowski (£4.7m), the Egyptian’s later opportunities for assists resulted in him being dispossessed.

For both Sadio Mané‘s (£9.8m) first goal and Firmino’s second, Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) tackled Salah just as he was either about to pass or shoot. Because he was unable to do either of those actions in both cases, there was no assist for each one.

From a statistical perspective, Salah’s performance was, again, close to what his owners would be looking for. No player had more goal attempts at Anfield than the Egyptian, and he was joint-top for chances created too. As he is still finding himself in dangerous positions, Salah will still be considered as a big part of Blank Gameweek 31 when Liverpool travel to Fulham, both for transfers in and for the captaincy.

“Today, for me Mo Salah was the best player on the pitch and he did not score. I’m not sure that you will see that in a lot of ratings, because he’s a striker and didn’t score so then you make of it what you want. But we have no problem with confidence.” – Jurgen Klopp

Either way, Salah was still outperformed in yet another home match by Sadio Mané (£9.8m). Not only did the Senegalese international score nine more points than his colleague, scoring twice, his underlying statistics were also better. While Mané and Salah had the same number of goal attempts at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, the former registered double the number of efforts in the penalty box. Mané also had two shots on target to Salah’s one too.

That was not a huge surprise as it continued the trend of Mané proving the better option Anfield-based Premier League encounters. In the four home matches prior to Gameweek 30, he had the same number of shots as Salah but registered, more in the box and more on target too. You have to go back to Gameweek 19 for the last time Mané failed to score at home, and since then he has found the net eight times in six matches in front of the Kop.

Whether Mané can replicate that sort of form away from home will be the key to his success in the Blank Gameweeks. Liverpool are set for trips to Fulham and Southampton, neither of which have earned much faith in their defences admittedly, but the Reds have fared much better at Anfield as they have on their travels of late. Mané himself has scored just once in the last six away matches, in stark contrast to his home form.

Scoring a brace against Burnley, Firmino has thrown his name into the hat at the eleventh hour for Blank Gameweek 31 consideration. The first of his two goals was the first time he had found the net since Gameweek 23, although the Brazilian has only started once in the last four Gameweeks because of injury. Even though he is almost certain to feature from the beginning at Fulham, Firmino may have his work cut out in convincing managers he is a better option than Salah or Mané. In the last six Gameweeks, his minutes per chance is inferior to both of his attacking colleagues.

The fact that Liverpool conceded two at home to Burnley could suggest that doubling-up on their attack is more advisable than their defence for the Blank Gameweeks. There was certainly an element of fortune about the Clarets’ first goal of the afternoon though. It found its way into the net direct from Ashley Westwood‘s (£4.6m) corner, while Tarkowski was clearly fouling goalkeeper Alisson Becker (£6.0m), unbeknownst to the officials. It was the first goal the Brazilian had conceded in 518 minutes of football. Burnley’s second goal was snuck across the line by Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m) in the closing stages after a rare foray forward for the visitors.

“One of them was the early goal we conceded; usually it would have been disallowed if Andre [Marriner] has a better view of it, I don’t know exactly. I saw in the first moment it was a foul and now I have seen pictures you cannot treat the goalie like this, it should not happen, but they scored.” – Jurgen Klopp

While there are plenty of reasons to double-up on Liverpool’s defence, days like this one remind Fantasy managers of the potential shortfalls of doing so. Of some encouragement though is the fact that Burnley’s expected goals (xG) score for the afternoon was 0.48, with them having just one shot inside Liverpool’s box. If the Reds come away from Craven Cottage having faced similar statistics then there will most likely be a strong chance of keeping a clean sheet there.

Klopp continued to make changes among his central midfield trio, this time handing Adam Lallana (£6.9m) a start at the expense of Jordan Henderson (£5.3m). It was the former Southampton man’s first time in the first XI since Gameweek 25, and he added plenty of energy and creativity to Liverpool’s midfield.

“If you have five sessions a week, everybody can show up and Adam was exceptional during the week. So, in a situation where you think a little bit how you can adjust one or two things, it’s smart. He trained well for a while already but this week was especially well – that’s the reason why he starts.” – Jurgen Klopp

Meanwhile, James Milner (£5.6m) was unable to overcome his muscle injury to be involved. It appears that this was the reason why Dejan Lovren (£4.9m) was included on the bench having not appeared since Gameweek 21. Klopp did not sound too confident that the Croatian was fully fit to be involved, implying that he was only among the substitutes for numerical reasons.

“We have again little injuries, (Milner) was not able to be involved today, Dejan (Lovren) was not planned to be involved today but he was on the bench after training only twice but we had nobody else – well, the kids, but they played for the U23s.” – Jurgen Klopp

Burnley offered much less attacking threat than usual in their trip to Anfield. It probably shouldn’t put us off their options as they also embark on two Blank Gameweek involvements. As already mentioned, they had just one shot in the Reds’ penalty box but in the last six Gameweeks, the Clarets have averaged 8.8 per game.

The in-form Ashley Barnes (£5.7m), with goals in five of his last six, had a quiet afternoon at Anfield. He did not register a single effort on goal and touched the ball in Liverpool’s box just twice all afternoon. However, in the last six Gameweeks, just three players have registered more penalty box shots as Barnes, only four recording more accurate efforts too.

Youngster Dwight McNeil (£4.4m) continues to keep the likes of Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady (£5.4m) out of the team. It was his 11th consecutive start in Gameweek 30, which means his chances of acting as a cost-effective fifth midfielder in Blank Gameweek 31 remain high.

“Dwight McNeil was outstanding so, strangely, there were a lot of good things, which sounds mad when you lose 4-2.” – Sean Dyche

After going eight matches unbeateen between Gameweeks 20 and 27, it is now three defeats on the spin for Burnley. In those matches they have conceded a total of an average of three goals per game, which could encourage those with Leicester assets for Blank Gameweek 31. Despite organising themselves as we have come to expect under Sean Dyche, the Clarets have made several errors in recent outings which could prove costly against the Foxes next weekend.

“You can’t give away mistakes like we did today, definitely three out of the four (goals) and you could argue all four. You can’t give away errors anyway in the Premier League, but certainly not at places like this. That’s my only gripe because a lot of the performance was very good, and the mentality was spot-on.” – Sean Dyche

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold (Sturridge 86′); Fabinho, Lallana (Keita 77′), Wijnaldum (Henderson 68′); Mané, Firmino, Salah.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Heaton; Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley; McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick (Gudmundsson 79′); Wood (Crouch 79′), Barnes (Vydra 86′).

    By captaining Salah each week, I have lost over 60 points in the last 6 game weeks. This belief of he's not scored so he's due is a complete fallacy. I'm going Mane or Rondon for GW31.

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I stopped captaining him and luckily it coincided with his dry spell and helped move me from 250k to 92k. Fell lucky with my Vardy pick this week.

      One of the consequences of owning such an expensive player, you have to captain to justify really. So if he isn't returning points it's doubly frustrating

    3. kysersosa

      I remember last season doing the same with Kane. You lose so many points on the blank weeks that when he does score big, you’re still behind where you could of been.

      Yeah its called the gamblers fallacy and the above article is a perfect example of it.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8SkCh-n4rw

      The funny thing is when Salah does eventually get something the narrative will be 'Salah justifies owners patience'
      But meanwhile those who did not fall into the belief that 'Salah is due' will still be better off in the long term.

      There is also a sunk fallacy going on for those who are fearful that the high priced Salah that has been in the side for a number gameweeks that they are too invested in.

        How is it gambler's fallacy. The idea that he's due to score is based on underlying factors and other 'predictors', not the very fact that he hasn't scored for a while.

        1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 9 days ago

          That is eaxctly my point those predictors are flawed.
          What type of decent shots is Salah getting?
          What kind of touches is he getting?
          What is his shot accuracy like?

          Those questions are not asked - the narrative is that 'Salah is due' because of 'underlying stats'

          But there is better value elsewhere and the funds can be used elsewhere.

    1 point more than top 10k average but a small drop in rank to 52k, gonna be tough climbing.

    Hopefully chip strategy will pay off

    Brought in Mane/Haz/Wilson last night for - 4.

    Didn't get Frazer for the - 8 so stuck with Jota now. Didn't fancy - 8 on a blank GW.

    Going with 10 for the blanks FH 32

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

      I’m going as should pay off during 31 and 33

      -4s are only -2s this week.

      1. MathGeek
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        -4s are always -4s

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

      So minus 4 for a player that should play 2 decent home games 31 and 33. You don't think he'll cover the -4???

      1. let me put matip in...pleas…
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 10 days ago

        I think he means your - 4 behind the people that didn't need to take a - 4? I'm an advocate of what your alluding to if it was the right choice. He's a math geek not a math nerd so he's probably right

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

    Have one spot in def and one in attack, would you get Azpi and Wilson?

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

      Already have Brooks so maybe Wilson over Fraser?

    2. Quite Big Dunc
      • 7 Years

    2. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Agüero, Son > Wilson, Hazard for a hit. You don't need Agüero for the next 3 GW's (as you're FH'ing in 32)

      1. Clarity
        • 1 Year

      Really good team!

  7. Tmel
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Boruc
    Rice TAA Robertson
    Fanderson Salah Almiron
    Vardy

    Currently have 8 GW31 players and 1FT - which is the best option?

    a) Haz & Wilson (-4)
    b) Haz & Hig (-4)
    c) Haz, Hig & Wilson (-8)

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Probably A

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Although I have B

    2. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 10 days ago

      C but depends who you're chucking out and cash implications.

      Those 3 play in 33 as well, so the -8 is hugely wiped out by appearance points.

      (Assumed you're FH in 32).

      1. Tmel
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Would be Sterling, Rash & Jimenez

  8. CostaCoffee
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    What defender would you get for GW31 + 33 only, must be under 5m

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

      Schar probably. I see he is flagged though, not sure what's up with that

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

        Suspended 31 and 32

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      not shar

      susp

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

        Ah thanks

    3. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I'd look at a Bournemouth defender. Good fixtures in both blanks, and also for the run-in.

      1. danishdynamite
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Assuming you already have a LEI defender, then Ake

  9. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    No mention of TAA in the notes?

    1. Game Over
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      He and Robbo were unlucky not to get assists /goals. They're both playing like wingers.

  10. ItOnlyTook9Years
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Fab
    VVD, Robbo, Azpi
    Mane, Hazard, Anderson, Hayden
    Vardy

    Button, AWB, Doherty, Pogpa, Rashford, Jim

    Worth a -4 to bring in Wilson for Rashford?
    Or Doherty to someone?

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Rashford to Wilson sounds good.
      I wouldn’t get rid of Doherty, you’ll probably lose a good bit of value and then will want him again on WC

  11. Tsssst

    whats the max no. of hits you should take for BGW31?
    none for defenders right?
    sadly no Free Hit available

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 6 Years

      -4 imo

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

    Free hit ?
    or take a -4 to get 8 players playing, league me with this team

    Fab
    Robbo TAA Digne

      Take hits. Not worth FH with what you already have

  14. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Yeah 1G and 1A in 7 games is totally down to being unfortunate. Nothing at all to do with him possibly not being at last season's levels.

    He has been playing like this all season. Got a streaky patch through Christmas thanks to penalties, touched a ball 1cm before entering the goal vs Palace. He will always get a few goals simply because the amount of chances he has but to claim he's 'unfortunate' every time he fails to deliver is seriously stupid.

    Stop looking at everything through the stats lens.

    1. tucaoneo

      Salah apologists are the new Alonso apologists. He was unlucky. He was due. Right.
      Liverpool scored 9 goals in two home matches. The man got one assist. That's it. If Hazard does something like that you'll never hear the end of it. Yet Hazard is the troll. A cheaper, troll.

  15. Tsparkes10

    More or less priced out of my ideal moves... So, for 31 and 33:

    A) VVD and Brooks or Ake
    B) Clyne/Smith and Mane (-4)

    1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…

      B

    Anyone taking a -12 this week or just me?

    1. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      So far 0 hits, but 10 players (one being Solanke) so will probs make some moves up to -8

    3. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      #MeToo. 5 transfers for -12 means 10 appearance points. So in reality I'm only taking a -2 to get 5 extra players on the pitch.

      1. Toby Lerone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        My logic. Doesn't seem worth the free hit to get 9 players out for 31.-12 seems reasonable

      2. CostaCoffee
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Well really it’s 6 appearance points because you wouldn’t be taking hits on the first two. Still doesn’t sound that bad though -6 for 3 players

        1. Toby Lerone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          Players in would be hazard mane Fraser Wilson TAA/robbo haven't decided on the last one yet

      3. lespaul
        • 10 Years

        Nope . -12 is 6 appearance points .

  17. StayoutheSpiceZone

    Probably live to regret saying this, but is there anyone else out there who thinks Newcastle have a good chance at Bournemouth? I have quite impressed with the toon over recent weeks.

      Good chance of scoring yeah, but if Lascelles doesn't recover they'll be without him & Schar against a strong Bmouth attack.

      1. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…
        • 5 Years

        Good point.. Bou very strong at home too and Wilson helps massively

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Without Lascelles and Schar? BOU could have a field day.

    3. DandyDon

      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yea wouldn’t want to double up on Bournemouth defence or captain Wilson...just in case

    Anybody have list of teams likely to play/not play in gw33? Thanks

    1. Game Over
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      It'll be similar to gw31.

    Rondon, Vardy, Jimenez.

    Got Jimenez at £5.8. Not sure if he will be in my FH 32 team. Probably want him in WC 34.

    Newcastle I imagine are having a lot of confidence and momentum after the 3-2 comeback. Rondon was brilliant. They will have no Schar, maybe no Lascelles. May blank in 33.

    Should either be taken out for Wilson (-4)?

    1. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Tough probably not if you’ve committed to Vardy and rondon. I’ve still got jiminez and Aguero so will likely transfer out Aguero for Wilson this week to join Higuain In my attack

    Morning

    I can't be the only one frustrated beyond belief with Fandersen ..... but is Fandersen > Fraser / A N other mid-price midfielder worth a hit when he had Hudds at home next up ?

    Was planning to ditch him in 33 anyway (after FH32)

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Why not Sterling or Pogba to Fraser

      1. danishdynamite
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        My FT has been set for Sterling > Hazard, and barring injury that's set in stone

        Fandersen would be for a hit

        1. danishdynamite
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          And I have an XI, so taking a hit to field a player isn't an issue

    2. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I’ll be transferring out Anderson for Mané or Fraser. I have Pogba to but want to keep for 34 and double 35. Not sure if I would for a hit but seems good week to take hits

    3. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I'm having serious doubts about his minutes even it's Huddersfield. He seemed completely uninterested. He started every match the whole season and now he's taken off at HT.
      Would appreciate more team news but if I see him as a blanker in 31/33 then Fraser (-4) makes a lot of sense.

  21. Pukki Party
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Best players to get in?

    Alisson
    Alonso TAA Digne
    Salah Hazard Brooks
    King

    A) Fraser, Vardy -4
    B) Wilson, Maddison -4
    C) Alisson to Kepa and Mane, Wilson in -8

    1. LE GOD(C)-AMERICAN DYCHO-(1…
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      A looks good

      1. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Cheers

    2. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      C makes no sense whatsoever, unles I'm being thick, but A & B is a coin toss - both are vey decent transfers and worth a hit

      1. Pukki Party
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        C means getting Mane for an extra hit over Alisson. Thanks

        1. danishdynamite
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          Yeah, I wouldn't do that TBH

  22. n-doggg
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Could there be more DGWs in 32?

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yes - they will be announced only after the start of GW31 though (along with the GW35 doubles)

      1. n-doggg
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks. Worth a free bit in GW32 then? Currently got 8 for 31 and 2FTs

        1. danishdynamite
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          Yeah, that seems to be most people's way of navigating 32 ( at least, those who have all their chips intact.)

          1. n-doggg
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 10 days ago

            Question is, will there be a better week to play it around the next DGW? Got all chips

              Check out Ben Crellin on twitter for intel.

              My not-exactly-unique plan is FH32 WC35 BB35 TC36/38

              1. danishdynamite
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years

                Soz, WC34

  23. Reckoner.
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Hows this look for a FH 31 team?

    Fabianski
    Luiz | Pereria | Rice
    Salah | Mane | Hazard | Fraser
    Firmino | Vardy | Wilson

    Hamer | Tielemans | Yedlin | Schindler

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Lol, you have 15 players playing in a blank gameweek, that is some seriously impressive planning, m8

      Looks fine, though as you don't say how many transfers you're taking this week to put that team out it's a bit hard to judge

      1. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        FH means Free Hit

        1. danishdynamite
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 10 days ago

          Ah, I see now - soz. Need coffee.

          Yeah, that's as good as it gets

    2. Reckoner.
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Could go double Chelsea defense with Luiz & Azpil (replace Pereria)?

  24. Tmel
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Would you rather shift Jimenez or Rashford?

    Would lose a fair amount of value on either

    1. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 10 days ago

      I think Rash has more uncertainties with him going forward (UCL, Lukaku).

    2. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      If I had to chose between those tow, I'd lose Rash

    3. Punty McPuntface
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Rash!

  25. Bobby
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Wilson and Fraser for rash and puncheon (for a hit)?

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yarp

  26. Dosh
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Sterling --> Hazard a no-brainer?

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yup, do it (Disclaimer: i'm doing it too)

  27. philm33
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Anybody looking at Tielemans as a differential?

    1. philm33
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Looking at Rash to Wilson & Pog to Tielemans for -4 at least this week

    2. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      He’s looked good the last 2 games tinder Rodgers. I think Maddison is the pick though.

      1. danishdynamite
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 10 days ago

        "Tinder Rodgers"

        *voms*

  28. FPLGraham
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Want to take a -8. Got Vardy/Fraser already.

    Two moves out of this lot. Feel a bit clueless rn.

    Jimenez -> Wilson/Rondon
    Pogba/Sterling -> Leicester Mid / Brooks.
    Bednarek -> Luiz/Azpi

    1. Old Gregg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Wilson. Only because Rondon not guaranteed 33 yet.

      Maddison.

  29. Demel
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 10 days ago

    Some really volatile overall rank moves recently. Not me. I couldn't plataleau any more if I tried.

    Overall Rank

    GW25 3,902
    GW26 3,520
    GW27 2,978
    GW28 3,145
    GW29 3,983
    GW30 3,796

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 10 days ago

      Yeah! Same here:

      GW25 860
      GW26 675
      GW27 734
      GW28 1004
      GW29 830
      GW30 1107

  30. kysersosa

    Pogba YC = 1 off 100 points. 99 fit this game week, but still fail to get triple figures for this season!
