Good news for Salah’s Fantasy owners ahead of Gameweek 36

Fantasy managers were offered reassuring comments by Jurgen Klopp in his pre-match press conference on Thursday afternoon.

Mohamed Salah‘s midweek trip to New York and Liverpool’s forthcoming UEFA Champions League double-header against Barcelona are nagging doubts ahead of Liverpool’s appealing Gameweek 36 fixture against Huddersfield Town but Klopp was quick to pour scorn on any suggestion that he would have one eye on next week’s trip to the Nou Camp.

Klopp said:

I will not push that wrong mindset with a fresh line-up or whatever, no chance for that. We had enough time to recover from the last game, we have enough time to recover for the next game. Barcelona has nothing to do with the game on Friday.

Asked if Salah’s brief jolly to America would be an issue ahead of Friday’s match at Anfield, Klopp said:

Travelling these days is no problem any more. It would be more of a problem if his car was broken and he had to walk from here! That’s pretty comfortable.

Of course, he can miss one session [on Wednesday], that’s what he did. Today he will be in training, everything will be fine again. He’s back and everything will be fine.

The Liverpool boss meanwhile provided updates on Adam Lallana (unspecified), Fabinho (head) and Dejan Lovren (illness), saying:

All a bit questionable, we don’t know exactly at the moment. We will have to see today. Dejan trained yesterday so that’s OK, probably. The others we will have to see.

The man in the away dugout at Anfield on Friday, Jan Siewert, also held his press conference today.

Siewert confirmed that Ben Hamer (knock) and Laurent Depoitre (foot) won’t feature but Adama Diakhaby (hamstring) has had two weeks of training and could come back into contention.

Elsewhere, Richarlison (rib) is a “major doubt” for Everton’s match against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Rounding up Everton’s injury situation on Thursday, Marco Silva said:

Lucas [Digne] is OK.

Richarlison we have big doubts about. He has tried yesterday to work with us, he felt it again. Let’s see how he will react tomorrow, today he tried again. He will be a big doubt for us, a major doubt for us.

Let’s see how Theo [Walcott] will be tomorrow because he was sick this morning.

[Yerry] Mina started [training] with the team also, beginning of the week. He is doing well and preparing well himself.

Davy Propper (hamstring) will miss Brighton’s home match against Newcastle United on Saturday but Anthony Knockaert is available after a three-match ban.

Ralph Hasenhuttl had much to clarify in his own pre-match press conference.

The Southampton boss said of his injured contingent:

Jannik [Vestergaard] not [fit], that’s for sure. Ryan Bertrand has got a hit on his ankle and is maybe also a question. Matt Targett is back in team training. Stuey Armstrong has a little problem with his hamstring.

Shane [Long] is fit, I think. He trained today, had a little problem at the end of the game against Watford, so it looks good that he can play at the weekend.

Fulham manager Scott Parker will welcome Tom Cairney (personal reasons) and perhaps Alfie Mawson (knee) back to the first-team fold this weekend.

Parker said on Thursday:

Tom Cairney will come back now that his girlfriend has given birth. There’s a slight doubt over André Schürrle due to his wife having a baby as well, but [Alfie] Mawson is back in contention. He’s been out for some time so it’s pleasing to have him back.

He came in over the summer as a big addition to the squad and has struggled a little bit with injuries but he’s been back now for the last few weeks, played a couple of under-23 games, so we’re looking forward to getting him involved, hopefully at the weekend.

The 14 remaining Premier League managers will hold their press conferences on Friday so we will bring you up to speed on any injury updates in our regular article and video round-up tomorrow.

    Who to play from
    1) Kola - away to Leicester
    2) Valery - home to Bournemouth
    3) Duffy - home to Newcastle

    1. Hybrid.power
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Duffy

      1. J to the T
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        Or as an alternative use FT to do Kola -> Matip

        Is Matip secure in any way?!

    2. Barca_Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Duff

  2. Fergiesarmy

    Taking KDB out for Mane C. Should i also do duffy out for TAA (4pt hit)??

    I dont have any other pool coverage but feel duffy may keep a CS? Meaning i would need attacking returns from TAA

    Whats the thoughts

    1. Lumberjack
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      I’d get TAA

    2. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      I got Taa for Awb last week. Worked out a treat.

  3. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    suggestions here,1ft and 1.2m.

    Foster (WOL) --- Patricio
    Duffy (NEW) • Laporte (bur) • Doherty (wat) -- Valery (BOU) Kola (lei)
    Sterling • Son • Eriksen • Pogba • Jwp
    Kun • Jimenez --- Gray (WAT)

    A: Save FT and find a big couch for the pool game. 2FT's could be useful next gw to bring in rashford, get rid of duffy
    B: Eriksen >> Mane...then captain either TC Mane or Kun (c) with Kun/Sterling TC in gw37
    C: Sterling + Kola >> Salah (TC) + 4.5m def (-4)
    D: Kola/Duffy >> TAA..seems a bit sideways as duffy has a good fixture

    Tempted with C but any other way to get Salah without loosing sterling?

      B

    Eriksen and Martial to Mané and Milivojevic for -4?

      You had Martial 😯

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        Sadly still have him. Only got him on WC for DGW.

        Waste of time that was.

              I have for 20+ years bro! The teams a mess. Needs a RB, 2 CBs , a proper striker, a new manager, a RW and a CDM. Just crazy

                oh dear
                should have stuck with the old manager rather than backing the posh players ahead of him?

                25 days, 10 hours ago

                That means the whole system brother. I think you will agree above all these United need a new board of directors.

                  Why they didn’t appoint the technical director before a manager I don’t know

      Jan Valery and April Valery maybe

          The funny part is I got points for all the Josh Murphy's goals this season.
          Unbelievable!!

    5. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 1 Year

      Fixed - Valery now a singleton.

  6. gonzalocampos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    Duffy and Erikssen to Van Dijk and Deulofeu/Babel? This will give me the opportunity to upgrade Deeney to Zaha or Rashford in 37

  7. TheBabyfacedAssassin
    • 9 Years
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    With TC in mind:
    A) KDB, Eriksen > Salah, Hendo/JWP/Redmond
    B) KDB, Dunk > Mane, Kelly

    Lloris (Foster)
    Duffy, Alexander-Arnold, Valery (Doherty) (Dunk)
    Sterling, Son, Eriksen, Jota (De Bruyne)
    Gray, Agüero, Jiménez

  8. Jafalad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    Which one would you play out of these four:

    A. Bednarek BOU
    B. Doherty wat
    C. Camarasa ful
    D. Ward Prowse BOU

    Other three go on the bench. Which benching order would you have? Many thanks!

    1. TheBabyfacedAssassin
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      JWP

    2. Syd.
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      D

    3. F_Ivanovic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      C. D. B. A.

    4. kalmoffit
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      He's first on my bench, but D

    5. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Thanks lads. The RMT tool has Ward Prowse to play with a bench order of:

      Camarasa
      Bednarek
      Doherty.

      I've got Doherty as first sub at present given the likelihood of returns at both ends.

  9. F_Ivanovic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    A) Eriksen > Mane
    B) Martial + Doherty > Kelly + Mane (-4)
    C) Aguero > Zaha, Martial > Salah (-4)

    Doherty scoring again has made me rethink my plan to do B as the home game against Fulham in 37 is so tempting (plus both my rivals have him and it could be a disaster!)

  10. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • 1 Year
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    Really tempted for TAA TC over Mane. Almost all set pieces, lots of good open game crosses and highly potential cs. 0+1+cs from TAA would mean at least 1+1 from Mane.

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Can you take set pieces from the bench? 😉

      1. Amey
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        Nope
        I think Shaqiri will take it after 87th minutes 😉

    2. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Go for it.

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      After the Duffy debacle I am never captaining a defender again. Saying that, TAA does average over 5 ppg. I just think there are going to be goals in this game and games means big points.

      1. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        goals * i.e. captain an outfield player.

      2. diesel001
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        Captain a Top 6 team defender in a DGW. Usually pays off (e.g. Laporte).

    4. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Probably I will still take the cover approach with Mane. They are very 50-50 in my books but the benefit of cover from Mane might decide this punt.

  11. Lumberjack
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    I guess I need a LIV attacker. No idea how, quite like my current team. Any thoughts?

    1 FT, 0.1m ITB.

    Ryan
    Robbo TAA Laporte
    Sterling Eriksen Son Jota
    Kun Vardy Jiménez

    Gunn Boly Valery Hojbjerg

    1. TheDragon

      What was your plan when you wildcarded?

      1. Lumberjack
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        Plan was to have 2 ft and to be happy getting rid of Sterling. Neither are true now...!

    2. Gentle_Turks
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      Erikson to Mane is the obvious move.

      1. TheDragon

        He doesn’t have the £££

  12. Mr_Barbs
    • 1 Year
    25 days, 10 hours ago

    Does this lineup seem right for this week? Bench correct?

    Lloris
    TAA, Doherty, Dunk
    Mane(TC), Sterling, Son, Eriksen
    Jimenez, Aguero, Wilson

    Foster, Jota, Yoshida, Valery

    1. Marvelous Marty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Would start Jota ahead of Jiminez personally

      1. Mr_Barbs

        Can see why! Could go either way. Thanks

    Consensus seems to be Mané over Salah? I can get either but don’t fancy TC Mané

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 10 hours ago

      If that’s how you feel then definitely get Salah - stat wise it’s not so clear

      Why don’t you like mane?

      The fun thing is I don’t think there is any consensus. There are decent arguments for both - time to back your gut

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        It’s such a huge decision

      Do what you think is best. I cant really get mo without losing sterling.

      The TC chip is a high volatility chip. For me Mane is a good option because:

      - He has a good home fixture (Huddersfield, a team who don't have a good record of creating a shock result)
      - He is very likely to play substantial minutes (Liverpool need to win to keep their title hopes alive)
      - He plays for a good attacking team (only Man City have a higher aG and xG overall and at home)
      - He has the potential to score (he has scored 8pts or more in 13 PL games this season)
      - He has shown signs of form in recent weeks

      Does any of the above guarantee a big return?
      No. But it likely pushes the probabilities in your favour based on the most available information.

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        But all the above is true for Salah. So how do you choose ...

        1. Joey Barton and Friends
          • 7 Years
          25 days, 10 hours ago

          Exactly same goes for Mo. He seems to be getting back in his stride recently and according to me...he’s “due”

        2. diesel001
          • 2 Years
          25 days, 10 hours ago

          I don't think Salah has been in as good form as Mane recently. Salah is a better overall attacker, but when you watch Mane he gets a lot of shots. He misses them, but if he has one of those lucky days then he could haul big time.

      Do not mistake the FFS 'Wildcard' bubble whereby a lot of people offloaded Salah.

      He is not winning the Captain Poll simply because he is lower-owned on here (Top 10K).

      That does not mean he is worse or less-favoured right now, just that less people have him as a result of bolstering benches with that Salah money in GW35.

    Would you sell Eriksen & Wilson for a hit ?
    This move could give me Bernardo Silva and Firmino for a run in.

    The only problem is I'm only 4 ponits behind ML leader and bit reluctant to take hits.

      huh?

      1. DA Minnion
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 10 hours ago

        Mane will be fairly heavily triple captained plus my direct opponent will probably triple cap too so I need him to blank.

          I'm weighing up tc on mane or sterling.

          Any opinion on my transfer above please?

      Yeah. TAA and Mane (c) and hope pool do badly still.

      The ultimate shields.

      1. DA Minnion

        I've Taa and Salah too as a buffer.

          Just one them weeks that happens now and then. I’m sure even those with TC are nervous they choose the wrong one.

              • 1 Year
              25 days, 10 hours ago

              I’m currently top 500 which is probably why I think the season is far from done - stressful times!

                Wow. Good going ! Are you aiming for a certain rank ?

                Staying in the top 1k would be very impressive !

                See in your shoes I’d be buzzing and my statement wouldn’t apply ! 🙂

                  I’d be delighted with top 1k but top 500 has to be the aim,

                  This week I’ve got Mane TC and no Salah, so it feels huge as if it goes right I could have an outside shot at top 100. If it goes wrong I could be out of the running for top 1k

                  It’s brutal at this rank though - got 105 last week and literally only went up 80 places.

                    Yep the higher you go the harder to stay. It gets very tight and every huge scoring team pushes you.

                    Well don’t panic. Just play your game and hope Salah blanks 🙂

                      Thanks 🙂

                      I’m trying to stop myself doing Eriksen & Aguero to Salah and Rashford -4 (would TC Salah). Effectively a -8 as I’d get aguero back next week. It’s madness right?

                I was top 100 last season (top 50 this time last season) should have been a bit higher but was a bit timid unlike rest of season.

                Was surprised how aggressive the top 1k were with hits with so few games remaining.
                Took a last minute Jesus goal to keep me top 100.

                  Ye they seem hit happy but they score so many points!!

                    That's kinda of the point.
                    Even a few 2 point profits on hits make a difference this stage of the season at the top.
                    Many looking for any sort of edge.
                    Last season around top 500 more than a few taking - 8s each week and it was paying off. Eg loading with utd for GW38 vs Cardiff if Cardiff already relegated.

      This could a season defining week (mane vs Salah TC). This week is anything but boring, it could make or break ML’s for many.

      If you posted this after this GW I’d agree.

      If one of mane / Salah blanks and the other gets a hattrick it’s a minimum 36 point swing maybe even 54 if you only own 1. That’s HUGE.

      Very few hits worth it this week. Id just wait mate.
