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′).

    Planning on doing Rashford+Kun to Wilson+Vardy for free. Is it worth a hit to do Jimenez to Higuain also?

    Thanks.

      Probably. My only hesitation would be how much value you have tied up... but points over pounds and all that

    Anyone feel their season is a bit of a yo-yo.. 1 step forward, 2 steps back. 2 steps forward, 1 step back. Hoping the optimal utilisation of chips brings some solid rank rises

      Pretty much constantly since GW1 yeah. Transfers either not paying off or immediately backfiring... bench points always coming in at the wrong time (!)

      Just one of those seasons... my own decision-making hasn't been wonderful either.

      Absolutely even making right moves. Rice in for hit 3 weeks ago AWB scratching. Benched for 15. Sterling C last week then Aguero this rather than Salah even owning Mane and Sterling they score decent

      Getting that traction seems to be the hardest thing to do. Hoping the chips also pay off, and we can all enjoy a more positive end to the season. Best of luck!

      just one of those runs.
      Made good ground last week with a decent team.
      Thought i had a better side this week and lost all the ground i'd made up. But tbf it's one of those weeks where 1 player has made all the difference even for those who didn't captain him.

      Could not be described better than this. I am hitting into top 10K third time this season (first one being in GW5). Normally, when I come there, would stay until the end of season but not this year. By far the most difficult season for me.

    Should we stick with Pogba? He looked completely out of form yet again, he was not dangerous and got yellow card again. What are the best Man Utd options now? They seem to fail to keep a clean sheet, but Diego Dalot is playing in the front three. With the strikers there is also a debate whether it is inform but overpriced Lukaku or Rashford who played a horrible match vs Arsenal

    Thoughts on what to do here with 2FTs and 0itb?

    Allison
    TAA - Bardsley (Doherty - Wanbisa - Bednarek)
    Salah - Hazard (Son - Pogba - Jota)
    Barnes (Kun - Kamara)

    Thinking Kamara/Son/Jota —> Wilson/Fraser/Maddison (-4) but worried about not owing Mane/Vardy

    I think FH teams this week are going to lose a tonne of value on their squads prior to wildcard. A lot of potential double risers for non FH teams, whilst the blankers will be dropping like stones

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I also think this has been ignored

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Same for FH in 32 with the doublers rising back up again - it’s the nature of the beast

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      And when GW33 comes around ?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        31 free hit teams suffer again..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          And when 34 comes around ?

          ... it will all even itself out ...

          I doubt many without chips will be ditching their most prized assets in 31 and the transfers of those using chips don’t even effect price.

          I may be wrong but I would not worry too much about TV with all the budget value players available

    4. rilo17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Depends if bringing back players on WC where good profit has been lost. E.g. Rash, Pogba. In which case probably balances out

  8. ToyBlader
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Wilson or Rondon?

    1. IRBOX ⚽

      Wilso

  9. Reckoner.
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Trying to figure out my Free Hit defense for 31, how would you rank defensive assets for 31? Think for me it would be:

    1. Liverpool (Fulham Away)
    2. West Ham (Huddersfield Home)
    3. Chelsea (Everton Away)
    4. Burnley (Leicester Home)
    5. Leicester (Burnley Away)
    6. Bournemouth (Newcastle Home)
    7. Newcastle (Bournemouth Away)
    8. Everton (Chelsea Home)

    9. Huddersfield (West Ham Away)
    10. Fulham (Liverpool Home)

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      1,3,6,2,4...

  10. Tingate
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Alisson
    Robertson - Smith
    Barnes - Fraser - Salah

    Hamer - Doherty - AWB - Bednarek - Pogba - Sterling - Aguero - Jiménez - Kamara
    1FT - 1.4M ITB

    Aguero and Kamara > Wilson and Vardy(-4) so I have 8 players? Used my FH chip already so at the minute 31-33 is about damage limitation really.

    Any help much appreciated!

    1. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      You'll most likely want Aguero and Sterling for 32 if they have a double...

      I'd look at Kamara to Wilson, funded by a Pogba downgrade (maybe to H Barnes).

      1. Tingate
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah good point, I may even triple captain him or Sterling to try and get as many points as I can in that GW. I already have Harvey Barnes, but could get someone 8.0million or less, definitely guna consider this. Thanks for your comment!

    2. Reckoner.
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      In a tough spot because a lot of the players you have money tied up in will have doubles in GW32.

      I'd try this:

      AWB & Kamara > Valery & Wilson (-4)

      May just have the money. Yes a defensive double up on Southampton may seem crazy but they play in 33 (even though it is Liverpool), have a DGW coming and a great run 34-38. They'll be fighting to stay up so could be some CS in there.

      1. Tingate
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        .4 off doing that, but thanks for your comment, definitely give me something else to think about before just putting through my initial moves.

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I'd say Pog and Doherty are the two you can most easily get rid of without compromising 32. Id' want to keep both Sterling and Kun as absolute must haves.

      Pog to Hazard (also 32 double)
      Doherty to Clyne

      1. Tingate
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks for your comment, definitely leaning more towards this approach, I could even get Daniels for Doherty too who seems to be the more attacking and preferred player.

    Hi

    On a FH GW 31.

    Thoughts on triple Liverpool attack (Salah, Mane, Firmino) v Fulham and triple West Ham defence v Hudds?

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Eggs, basket.. spread the risk

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Normally I'd agree but it's so tempting!

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Double on both by all means, but triple is a bit risky I think

  12. JasonG123
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Which combo for 31 and 33?
    (A) Mane and Luiz
    (B) Hazard and TAA + 4

    1. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      B if TAA fit

  13. Ragnar Lothbrok

      9 months, 8 days ago

      Yes I am. I didn't want to fill my team with GW 31/33 players so set up for GW32 and will easily put out 11 players in GW33 with a couple of hits, even with other teams blanking.

  17. Murder On Zidanesfloor

    What is the general consensus on the TC chip? All the double GWs look covered with FH and BB

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      High variance. How many weeks lately have you seen people post hey guys thinking of TC Salah vs Burnley etc. Those other chips in DGWs seem more reliable the way blanks and doubles have settled

    2. Tingate
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I used my FH already so hoping Man City have a Fulham, Cardiff double gameweek 32 then triple captain Aguero or Sterling GW32

  18. Aaa

    Son to Fraser this week? That will give me (no hits):

    Fab
    Rob/TAA/Pereira/Diop
    Salah/Rich/Fand/Brooks/Fraser
    Vardy

    1. Tingate

    Which option is better for the blank 31&33,freehit next GW:
    1)Etheridge + sterling + billings > Boruc + hazard + brooks/gray (-8)
    2)Etheridge + sterling > Boruc + Hazard (-4)
    3) Etheridge > Boruc

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Must be FH

    3. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Hazard. Better player, team, probably fixture. On penalties

  21. Gazpilicueta
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    I really want to bring in Mane, but I cant decide how to squeeze him in, any advice appreciated!

    Hazard, Pogba, Sterling, Westwood Hojberg.

    I don't want to drop Hazard because I like chelsea's run, and he covers game weeks where other teams have blanks.
    I dont want to drop Sterling because he is in form, and has a good fixtures (apart from the blank) and a double gameweek coming up.
    I dont want to drop Pogba, because I really like him under Solskjaer and now Matic is in, he is also playing a more attacking role.

    My only other option would be to drop someone else like Higuan (who i like for the same reasons as Hazard) and make enough money to upgrade one of my budget midfielders....
    What would you do FFS? you are my only hope...

        FH, BB and Wildcard left, I dont think this week seems good for any of those chips for me.

        hmm, but he has a fixture this week?!

          If your using FHgw32 then mane in for sterling this week

          Assume you are a Chelsea fan which should be irrelevant in FPL. Higuain only scored against bottom 2 teams and Chelsea needed late goal to draw against Wolves at home. Not exactly screaming own me

    3. MTPockets

      Sterling/Pogba. They don't play this week

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Pog out for me but I suspect I'm going against the grain there. I moved him out for Mane a while back - not an instant success but now paying off. Mane is OOP while Pog isn't really and Pool have those two away derbies out of the way now,

      Other than that I suspect Higuain Hazard is best seen as an either or. I'd dump Higuain who has yet to show against anyone other than Fulham and Huddersfield.

      You probably don't have huge profit on Sterling so could sell if FH32. May cost 0.1-0.2m to get back of course

    Worth a -4 to do Sterling & Button > Hazard & Boruc. Or just do the first for free?

    Team would be:

    Boruc
    VVD / Rice / Maguire

    Salah (C) / Mane / McNeil / Hazard

    Higuain / Arnie / Rondon

    Can’t believe people are still fixated with team value on here at this time of the season ... points over £££ 🙂

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Both matter

      1. YEAH PITCH!

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      They aren't. Selling 2 players that blank that cost 0.8-1m say to buy back soon after is a legitimate concern and shouldn't be taken lightly

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        They will likely fall in price anyway to make it .4 to .5 to buy back, their replacements will likely rise in price anyway to make it .2 to .3 to buy back, that will likely give them extra points rather than having £30 mill bench for 2 games ... horses for courses but the best advice I have ever seen on here is get your money on the pitch and don’t leave it on your bench 🙂

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          A lot of the 31 players people are losing value selling players look average short term options anyway. Baby going out with the bath water

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 8 days ago

            I’ll tell you what, let us know the players you are keeping due to value and we will check how much you would have lost to buy them back ?

        2. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          Sterling is easy sell for me probably like most. Would cost 0.1m to buy back assuming keeps rising/player I swap to doesn't double rise. Easy. Aguero similar maybe 0.2m Not so much the case for many with Pogba or Jimi.

            9 months, 8 days ago

            Let’s track what you do, whom you hold, and see how much you would actually lose/retain and how much a typical group of replacements perform price wise, from GW29 which is when many started easing players in and out 🙂

            Doherty you bought GW11 £4.9 pp, GW29 5.5 pp - .6/.3
            Ake replacement GW29 5.0pp

            Jiménez GW13 £5.9pp, GW29 6.9pp - 1.0/.5
            Wilson GW29 £6.3pp

            Rashford GW18 £6.9pp, GW29 7.7pp - .8/.4
            Vardy GW29 £8.9pp

            Pogba GW20 £8.1pp GW29 9.0 pp .9/.4, Fraser GW29 £6.1pp

            Aguero GW23 £11.3pp, GW29 11.8pp .5/.2
            Higuaín GW29 £9.5pp

            Sterling GW24 £11.3pp, GW29 11.4pp .1/0
            Hazard GW29 £10.8pp

          Think you're overestimating how fast prices rises/falls happen. Most people aren't willing to make early transfers to capitalise on these falls.

  28. Paul 'The Party Animal…
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    My biggest decision is who do I get in for Jimenez?

    A) Firmino

    B) Wilson

    If it helps, I own Salah and Brooks as it is

    1. YEAH PITCH!
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I think A will do well

  29. #FPLBhuna
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    current team (ft used)

    fab
    robbo - X - X
    salah(c) - mane - hazard - barnes
    vardy - rondon - chicharito

    1 or 2 hits for the 2 defenders? moves I am considering are:

    a) pva > azpi/luiz (-4)
    b) pva + doherty > luiz + emerson (-8)
    c) pva + doherty > luiz + chilwell (-8)
    d) pva + bednarek > luiz + balbuena (-8)

  30. Shark Team
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Is it worth to do
    Jimenez > Wilson ?
    Because I will go for FH in 32 and WC in 34 so I will use Wilson in 31 and 33 with two home games.
    The only problem is that I bought Jimenez for 6.1 and his price now is 6.9

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I bought him for 5.6m and probably doing that

    2. #FPLBhuna
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      forget prices

      I bought him at 5.7 and he's gone

      you've build value up all season for this time in the season, to be able to put it to good use

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      sell ffs

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      9 months, 8 days ago

      6.1 and you can sell. His price will be 6.7 or less when you want him back. Wilson will probably rise by 0.2 anyway so your loss is less than it looks right now.

      I'm keeping but that's because I definitely want him back for the run in and I got him at 5.6. I'm also happy with Vardy and Rondo up top with Barnes coming in in 33 if necessary.
