The van Dijk latest as Spurs encourage ahead of second GW32 fixture

Liverpool kept their title bid ticking over with a late victory over Tottenham Hotspur but this was another win that left Fantasy managers with plenty to think about regarding the Reds’ players in Gameweek 33 and beyond.

Jurgen Klopp’s side made heavy work of a victory over Fulham in Gameweek 31 and this was another match in which they failed to truly convince, especially in a second half that Spurs had the better of.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side still have one more fixture to contest in Double Gameweek 32, of course, and their response to falling a goal behind at Anfield on Sunday will provide some optimism heading into their game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

Our Scout Notes piece below looks at the main Fantasy talking points from Liverpool’s 37th home league match without defeat.

Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Goals: Roberto Firmino (£9.2m), Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m) own-goal | Lucas Moura (£6.7m)
  • Assists: Andrew Robertson (£6.8m), Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) | Christian Eriksen (£9.2m)

Mohamed Salah (£13.2m) outscored Sadio Mane (£10.0m) in Fantasy Premier League for the first time in nine Gameweeks on Sunday, recording only his third attacking return in that time in the process.

This was a performance like many others from the Egyptian, however.

Salah bossed the shot count once again but didn’t particularly look like scoring and his “assist” came courtesy of some poor handling from Hugo Lloris (£5.4m), rather than any commendable work of his own.

With the clock ticking down, Spurs’ goalkeeper dropped Salah’s innocuous back-post header onto the feet of Toby Alderweireld (£6.0m), who could only bundle the ball into his own goal.

The Egyptian winger, who didn’t feature for his country over the international break, had earlier registered a couple of customary wild swings off target and ought to have slipped in Mane on a second-half counter-attack, only to go it alone and see his drilled shot blocked by a backpedalling Alderweireld.

A cold analysis of the stats will reveal that Mane had half the penalty box touches as Salah and three fewer attempts on goal but this has become a recurring trend in Liverpool games and the Senegal international went closer to scoring than his pricier team-mate with two curling efforts that narrowly missed Lloris’s left-hand post.

The Reds had begun the game in swaggering fashion, largely dominating their opponents in the first half.

The improved Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) nodded in Andrew Robertson‘s (£6.8m) superb cross after a quarter of an hour to open the scoring and Liverpool were worthy of their lead at half-time.

The Reds’ two full-backs were a menace all afternoon and registered more touches in the opposition half than any other player on show.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.5m), who had recovered from a back injury to start at right-back, was a threat from set plays and struck the upright with one inswinging cross in the first half, before setting up Salah for the headed chance that led to Liverpool’s winner late on.

Alexander-Arnold drew praise from his manager for his dead-ball deliveries:

Set-pieces were not bad today, the second ball off set-pieces is quite a tool for us this season. Trent brings the ball in and I think we had seven players in the box, which is an interesting number! Two players on the left wing for the cross and seven in the box, [that means there] are not a lot of players left for protection but that’s the risk you have to take.

The England right-back also struck a half-volley narrowly wide shortly after Firmino’s opener before forcing Lloris into his first save of the match with a curling, dipping effort on 76 minutes.

While Robertson couldn’t match his opposite full-back for attacking numbers (one key pass, no shots) he was a constant outlet down the left flank and walked away with all three bonus points: no FPL asset has more of those this season.

It seems odd to praise Liverpool defenders after a third league match without a clean sheet but Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) was similarly impressive, barely giving Harry Kane (£12.5m) a sniff and demonstrating some excellent positional play (in the circumstances) when Spurs found themselves in a two-on-one situation with the Dutchman late on.

Van Dijk also had his customary headed attempt on goal from a set play but caused worry for Liverpool fans and his FPL owners alike when wincing through the final minutes of the game and being pictured with an ice pack on his ankle in the post-match interviews.

His manager provided a fitness update on van Dijk after full-time:

We have to see. I asked him and I think it was in the counter-attack situation when Sissoko hit him. I don’t know if he twisted it or it is a knock.

He was walking to the interviews with a big ice pack. I hope it’s nothing serious but I don’t know yet.

The player himself said, rather positively:

I hurt my ankle but hopefully, it’s not too bad. It hurts, but we will take a look at it. I’ll be fine for Friday.

Alisson (£5.9m) was less convincing and, although he faced only two shots on target all afternoon, caused moments of consternation in the Liverpool backline with his distribution and flapping at crosses.

Liverpool’s central midfield also found themselves losing control of the match after half-time as Spurs wrestled their way into the game.

Pochettino had initially sent his side out in a 5-3-2/3-5-2 but moved to a back four in the second half, with Jan Vertonghen (£5.9m) moving over to left-back and Danny Rose (£5.8m) pushed forward into midfield.

Dele Alli (£8.8m) and Christian Eriksen (£9.2m) also traded places after the interval, with Alli dropping deeper, and Spurs looked the better for it – concern perhaps for the former MK Dons midfielder’s owners going into the Lilywhites’ second Gameweek 32 match against Palace on Wednesday.

Alli could still well have scored even when in his more withdrawn role, however, curling narrowly over as Spurs hit their hosts on the break late on.

Even more anxious, perhaps, will be Son Heung-min‘s (£8.6m) owners.

Benched for the second league match in a row, the Korean saw his effective replacement, Lucas Moura (£6.7m), not only produce an impressive display in the Spurs attack but also score the visitors’ equaliser on 69 minutes.

While Kane struggled to get any change out of van Dijk, the Brazilian had more penalty box touches and shots on goal than any of his team-mates.

Son could still have left Anfield with an attacking return after coming on as a substitute, however, with Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m) wildly lashing over from the Korean’s pass in that aforementioned two-on-one situation with van Dijk.

The solace for Kane’s owners, at least, is that he won’t face a centre-half as good as van Dijk very often and certainly not on Wednesday night against Palace.

While he blanked on Sunday, the Spurs and England striker has registered a goal and/or assist in each of his last ten starts against non-“big six” sides.

Kane still deserves credit for his quickly taken free-kick that led to the Lilywhites’ equaliser, while he also set Son and Sissoko away for that late chance with a first-time ball from deep.

Eriksen’s own recent performances have mirrored that of Salah’s: positive on the underlying stats front but less so on the eye.

That was again the case on Merseyside on Sunday.

The Dane was below his best but somehow recorded more key passes than any player on show at Anfield and went close to scoring when Robertson blocked his goalbound shot, before inadvertently teeing up Lucas for Spurs’ equaliser.

Below-par or otherwise, Eriksen has now recorded ten or more FPL assists in each of his last four seasons.

Speaking of his side’s display, Pochettino said:

We changed the shape after the first half when we conceded. Always you have a plan in your head and it doesn’t always work. The most important thing is when it doesn’t work have the capacity to always find a different way. I think the team has this capacity and flexibility to change, to change the shape and the positions on the pitch in the offensive and defensive situations. Always keeping the same philosophy. That is the most important thing, to have a different plan to play.

Of course in the second half, we changed the positions and the shape. We started to build better and for Liverpool, it was difficult to read the situation when we started to build from the back and how we started to break the pressure from them, the first defensive line and then we started to play forward and dominate the game and create chances.

In the second half, I thought we dominated and played much better than Liverpool. Overall, I think we were better than Liverpool.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Milner (Fabinho 77′), Henderson (Origi 77′), Wijnaldum; Salah (Lovren 90′), Firmino, Mane.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (5-3-2): Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez (Son 69′), Vertonghen, Rose; Sissoko, Eriksen (Llorente 90+1)’, Alli; Lucas Moura (Davies 82′), Kane.

    People ditching pogba on wildcard?

    What would be best option to get 11 out for next week?

    A. Pogba to Maddison
    B. Targett to Tomkins or Bournemouth def (I have AWB)

      I would see what happens as the injured players return. Is there any reason he wouldn’t revert to early OGS form if that system was renewed?

        He is back to how he was under Mourinho. Very disinterested, just plays like a ghost

          Do you think that is because he just plain doesn’t enjoy playing in this more withdrawn position?

          1. Would Ed Woodward
              8 months, 10 days ago

              I think it's because he's moody and always wants his own way about something. Probably to go to Real this time.

                You would know, ed ;).

                I don’t know about that. He was great for France despite not playing his preferred role. And Real is the ultimate club to become quickly marginalised at. If he wants his own way, surely Real is not for him?

                1. Would Ed Woodward
                    8 months, 10 days ago

                    I think it might just come down to the fact that he's a dick.

                      Hmm, not sure that’s fair on him any more than any top athlete today. Seems nice enough to me.

                No excuse for looking disinterested tbh. As a professional you are expected to give your 100%. But he doesn't, I don't know why. One day he can be the best player on the pitch and the next day he looks like he doesn't want to play at all.

                  That is true of every job, though, isn’t it? And who, on a fantasy football forum in the middle of the day, can say that?

                    very good! although I get paid considerably less than Pogba.

                    Not really, he is not even trying. If he tries he can easily be the best midfielder of his generation but if he continues to play like he is not interested, he is not gonna realise his potential. His life, but definitely don't want in my fpl team or as a Real Madrid player .

          I would get Maddison in. He's a captaincy option next week for sure.

        Is 33 the last week salah can actually hurt non-owners since most will have another priority and then he is out on most wc34s?

        I’ve gone a long time without him and the pleasure in watching liverpool yesterday without the fear that he could ruin me is not something I am ready to give up.

          Depends on your rank. If near the top, not owning Salah won't be an issue.

            Even in 33 or just thereafter? Sorry. Keen to cement rank and this week feels like one of the last (obvious) big bumps in the road.

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years

              In 34, this week he can still hurt you.

                Darn! Thanks for the answer.

          I want him for HUD... but otherwise happy to go without. I'm only interested in protecting myself in GWs where it's clear he's the best captain option. He could easily score 30+ points as a captain against HUD and that's not something I'm willing to risk.

            I get the theory to your response but there is no way this salah is getting a fifteen pointer unless he has got a few 8s under his belt before then.

          Get Rid. If you don't have sterling its a no-brainer. swap them

        Fabianski
        Robertson – TAA – Perreira – AWB
        Salah – Maddison – Hazard – Fraser
        Vardy – Wilson

        Button – F. Anderson – Jimenez – Doherty

        1FT, 1.5 TB. Will be doing WC34. Which is better for GW33?

        A) Fabianski > Kepa
        B) F.Anderson > Mhiki/Sigurdson/Brooks

        1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Definitely B. Chelsea can concede to anyone and westham show up at random games. Even if they don’t you would assume save points for fab.

          Not sure who, though. Siggy?

        2. Steiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I'm gonna plump for Siggy, just got that gut feeling there's gonna be goals in that game, and he could be on the end of a double digit haul.

          Foster alongside Ryan?

          Foster has WHU in GW38.

          It's the one advantage for those of us who have already blown our wildcards. Wildcarding for 35 could mean ending up with a sub-optimal team for 36-38.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 10 days ago

            What?
            I am WC to get the best team possible for 36-38.

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                I get your point but I think all the sensible ones will pick who they think will get most points in 34-38.

                  DGW fever my friend, happens every season.

                  Not us lot, of course, we are all too learned, but a fair share of people will.

            Well only Brighton have tough fixtures to be honest.

            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            There has to be some balance and we will have 4 transfers as well.

            Liverpool, United, City, Spurs & Soton have the best fixtures 36-38. I think they will be a part of all Wild card teams.

            Brighton, Watford & Wolves assets don't have the best of fixtures but easy to bench 4 of them as they are cheap and transfer out the remaining 1 or 2.

          Gunn, if nailed is useful
          Huddersfield at home in 38.

          1. Rains of Castamere

            Is Gunn 100% nailed?

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

              Not 100%, but probably 95%

        6. Daghe Munegu
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Lloris

      5. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 10 days ago

        these the best options for Liverpool, Arsenal & Bournemouth?
        Mane TAA Robertson
        Auba Kola Laca
        Wilson Fraser King

        would anyone consider having TAA, Robertson & VVD instead of Liv attack?

        1. Weilong7
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          my friend had the three defenders currently.. imo 2 def 1 attack is better.. if not heartbreak when concede

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            yeah, think I'll go with the fullbacks and Mane

          For me, this is the stage of the season to prioritise attackers from teams who are desperate for wins. Mid-season, teams like Liverpool might have taken a 0-0 in a tricky away fixture especially, rather than risk the loss. As GW 38 approaches then every game becomes a must-win, meaning that they are likely to take more risks - scoring and conceding more.

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            maybe, Liverpool are where they are in large part due to clean sheets though

          Tomorrow it may well be:

          Martial Lukaku Rashford

            Would say Martial is the most likely to be benched (owner on FH)

          8 months, 10 days ago

          There will be some rotation for United attackers imo. Pogba & Rashford look like the nailed options as of now.

            thks.

            I might have a cheeky bit of Siggy on wc 34(fulham) and them swap him for BSilva for DGW 35.

          He looked very sharp on Saturday, I think if he’s fit he starts based on form

        Ward-Prowse or Redmond?

            Tough to split, classic case of Over achiever vs Under achiever.
            Redmond based on stats alone but JWP is quality.

          JWP for me, even if they cost the same.

        Never felt more for a team in recent memory as Cardiff yesterday . People who say it all even out in the end , that the big teams are just as liable to get bad decisions against them are talking nonsense . It's an easy narrative to throw out but its the teams who cime up that

        1. boc610
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          (*Sorry hit post buttin to soon!)

          It's the teams that come up that get done, not the 14, 15 teams that are guaranteed prem league status pretty much every season and huge cash windfalls. If Cardiff go down they could never get that chance again

        2. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Bad decisions cost smaller teams more, that's for sure, but only if they're facing relegation I suppose. That's the biggest financial and existential risk to a PL club,

          Arguably, mid-table clubs are the least affected, then top clubs looking for CL spots, and relegation candidates are the worst off.

          That's in a vacuum, assuming no ref bias towards bigger clubs.

          1. boc610
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            It's not deliberate bias but its perhaps unconscious it that it's human nature to not want to p iss of the big guns, the teams with the big managers and players who are a big draw for the prem league. People joke about fergie time but it was an actual thing that existed. Chelsea imo are getting at least one of those pens yesterday if it's their players arm is pulled or theres a handful of shirt in a Cardiff players hand.

              I agree about that.

              I'm putting some ramblings about VAR down. Have a look out for them 🙂

        3. BenjoBD
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Yeah a few bad decisions cost a team like Cardiff relegation. A few for Chelsea cost them Champions league at best (Or 5th). No comparison really is it?

      9. Tim Canterbury

        Sterling/Hazard/Son was always gonna be a waste of a free hit mate

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          What makes you say that?

          1. Make Arrows Green Again
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Because their second fixtures were just cancelled. Haven't you heard?

            1. BenjoBD
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              8 months, 10 days ago

              haha. Son and Hazard might still haul. I reckon Sterling might be benched however.

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

        Just noticed that I havent had a single player from Arsenal or Newcastle whole season. Soon that will change for Arsenal...but which players to get on WC GW34? Kola and Auba?

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

          Guess so + maybe a mid.
          Having a play around and budget doesn't seem a factor - just who & whether to hold non-DGW players

        2. Rocky.007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Not sure about Auba.
          Kola definitely, maybe Laca if he can hold his place.

      11. Steve Stiffler
        • 3 Years

        OR just outside 10,000.. buzz, will the template FH reach 100 points this week?

        1. Rocky.007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Hopefully, a lot depends on Chelsea cleansheet and Sterling/Aguero.

        2. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I hope so. My team is pretty template 🙂

          On 57 currently. If Sterling turns up and does something, ideally at Aguero's expense, it will make things interesting to say the least.

        3. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          I think so - the "big 3" teams this DGW all underachieved at the weekend.

          1. Steve Stiffler
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Yeah really depends on the big teams, Sterling Hazard and Pogba have to turn up

        4. Iceball
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 10 days ago

          110-120 my guess

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          underwhelming gw for me 🙁

          43 pts

          3.4k > 4.9k so far lol terrible terrible FH

          1. Steve Stiffler
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 10 days ago

            Could be worse man, still another set of games to go

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Just short, I would imagine. But that is dependent on if azpi was template and if kun plays again.

          Congrats, sure you will break in by the end of gw if on fh. Good luck

        Are you getting any Cardiff players next week or dont bother even though DGW?
        And get rid before benchboost GW35.

        1. POLSKA GOLA
          • 6 Years

          I have Camarasa, decent and benchable asset

          Getting Morrison. I think he'll score. Definitely due a goal.

        Uninspiring.

            8 months, 10 days ago

            yeah I know, but are there better/cheaper value? I should have trippled with Schlupp+Tomkins+WannaB this week. Rivals did with Guita.

            Worth the risk especially in week 38(HUD).

        3. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • 9 Years

            yeah....I was hoping Martial was nailed. Would then punt on Siggy or Rich(ful) and then swap.

        90 behind my Leader. Things just ain't working out... Think it's lost :(. Still got my TC and he used his on Sterling this gw. He also has only 7 for 33 but I just know it isn't going to work out. Especially when Aguero, Jota, Hig get rested midweek.

        All went to crap when I used my first WC at the end and didn't bring in Pogba or Son quick enough. And then Salah over Mane recently. Ahhhh well. Rant over hehe

        Looking forward for WC34.

        Arsenal fixtures are looking good but games for every 3 or 4 days starting from Everton game this Sunday until Brighton game in GW37 is not helping. With the Napoli games as well is quite tricky to choose Arsenal players for 34-38.

        Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

            Any chance for you to pick at least one Arsenal players for gw34 until gw38?

      18. azz007
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 10 days ago

        is Salah vs Cardiff worth keeping DGW35? can easily outscore those playing twice.

        some diffcult doubles.

      19. OleGGMU
          8 months, 10 days ago

          Ederson, Boruc
          Robbo, VVD, Azpi, Schlupp, Valery
          Brooks, Mane, McNeill, Sterling, Jota
          Vardy, Aguero, Wilson

          1.3 ITB (NO WC OR FH OR TC)
          Thinking about a BB in DGW35

          Looking to bring in
          JWP/Redmond for Brooks and maybe Boruc to Leno/Gunn for GW33
          McNeill to Delo and Vardy to Jimi/Deeney
          DGW34 is a loss to me as whoever gets in apart from maybe Ryan in for Ederson, would have to as I dont see a BHA OR Card Mid performing in DGW35, so Im just focusing on building to DGW35 and Bench Boosting

          Any Advice would be great lads

          I am tempted by Foster in place of Ederson for DGW35?

          1. Goonerly
            • 1 Year

            Vardy could come good. Thinking that myself.

        • Goonerly
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 10 days ago

          For GW33:
          Is this a good move? :

          Kun + Pogba --> Vardy & Hazard

          No hit + would give me 1.0 ITB

        • de quincey
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 9 days ago

          I have my FH and I am thinking of this plan for 33:
          triple Liverpool and Leicester
          Laca/Auba
          Hazard
          Wilson/Fraser

          However, I currently have 6 to play:
          Hamer
          Schlupp Bednarek Azi
          Hazard
          Higu

          Not really convinced that Pool, Leicester and Arsenal will actually score more than 1 or 2.

          Thinking of weathering the storm and save the FH for my last stand in the mini league.

          (I have BB and TC.)

          Thoughts?
