Salah injury latest after Newcastle outing cut short

Newcastle 2-3 Liverpool

Goals: Christian Atsu (£5.1m), Salomón Rondón (£5.9m) | Virgil van Dijk (£6.7m), Mohamed Salah (£13.3m), Divock Origi (£5.0m)

Assists: Rondón, Javier Manquillo (£4.3m) | Trent Alexander-Arnold x2 (£5.7m), Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.8m)

Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) owners are now faced with a week of uncertainty as he was taken off with a head injury in Liverpool’s win over Newcastle. After making it six consecutive Gameweeks with attacking returns, the Egyptian was floored in a collision with goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka (£5.0m) and his awkward landing exacerbated the problem. He was down receiving treatment for some time before being taken off the pitch on a stretcher.

Thankfully, there will be regular updates on Salah this week as Liverpool prepare for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final with Barcelona. The corresponding press conference will likely take place on Monday given that the match is scheduled for Tuesday night. Furthermore, we should know more about Salah’s situation after the game depending on the role he plays against Barcelona.

“What I heard, he got the hip of the goalie on his head. He was then on the ground and the doc had to make a decision ‘on the pitch or off the pitch’, and the decision was off the pitch. We accept that of course. When he came in he was sitting in the dressing room watching the game on television. So he was then fine, but of course, we have to wait. He got a proper knock, obviously, in that situation.” – Jurgen Klopp

Whether Salah can be fit for the final day of the season visit of Wolves could prove pivotal for Fantasy managers. He was Liverpool’s primary goal threat against Newcastle, registering more shots and more efforts in the box than any of his colleagues. His deft first-half finish extended his lead at the top of the Golden Boot charts and means he has five goals in as many Premier League outings.

By contrast, Sadio Mané (£10.2m) was largely anonymous, as has often been the case in away matches this season. He had just one shot on goal all evening and was unable to be the chief beneficiary of Newcastle’s vulnerability in the air, despite registering more headed attempts than any other midfielder this season.

Despite winning the game in dramatic fashion, Liverpool were not quite at their ruthless best, actually emerging from the trip to Newcastle with a lower expected goals (xG) score than their hosts. That may have been down to Roberto Firmino‘s (£9.3m) latest absence. After missing Gameweek 36 and then only playing a small part in the defeat to Barcelona, the Brazilian could not overcome the muscle injury he has been dealing with of late. Klopp has already ruled him out of midweek Champions League action and must wait and see if he can feature against Wolves on Sunday.

“(Firmino) will not be ready for Tuesday and the rest we will see.” – Jurgen Klopp

Part of what caused Liverpool problems in Firmino’s absence has been the role Daniel Sturridge (£5.6m) has played in the last two matches. He started up front in both Gameweek 36 and 37, but in neither match did he get close to replicating what Firmino brings to the team. The Brazilian has been an excellent link-up man for Liverpool this season, while Sturridge has proved to be more of a one-dimensional forward, largely looking to shoot on sight. Despite his selfish tendencies in front of goal, seven players have registered a higher expected goal involvement (xGI) score in the last two matches than the Englishman, even Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.4m).

It will be interesting to see who is given the nod to start up front against Wolves if it looks like Firmino cannot play. With Sturridge not particularly impressing, Divock Origi (£5.0m) might fancy his chances after he got the all-important late winning goal for Liverpool. The last time he started at home in the league he featured on the left of the front three, allowing Mané to play through the middle, and got himself a goal too. However, that was, admittedly, against Watford, who have been much worse against top six sides this year than Wolves.

Xherdan Shaqiri (£6.8m) may also be in contention given his role in the team earlier this season, and an assist for the winner at Newcastle. When Salah was being played as the centre-forward in the 4-2-3-1 system, Shaqiri occupied the right attacking-midfield position and could play there again if Klopp opts to change formation for the final day of the campaign.

“We have fresh players on the bench, try to have an impact – and they had [an impact]. It was a wonderful free-kick from Shaq and sensational header from Divock and we win the game. We are now qualified for the league final, which is brilliant. So crucial. What can I say? It is just brilliant, it is like a fairy tale. You can say whatever you want about me – they don’t play often enough, Shaqiri not often enough. I make this decision. It is great that they do it, I love it. That was really a big moment.” – Jurgen Klopp

It was a mixed evening for Liverpool defensive assets as their fortunes were decided on their attacking capabilities rather than clean sheet potential. As previously mentioned, Newcastle certainly deserved their goals based on the quality of their chances, which will be of some concern ahead of a clash with top-six specialists Wolves on the final day.

“Credit to Newcastle, that was, wow… any people who doubt or whatever that teams don’t play for anything anymore, or maybe are halfway on the beach already, they were really the opposite. Is there any history between Newcastle and Liverpool that I don’t know about? The atmosphere was like there was something that happened in the past. The boys, again, were ready to face it, ready to deal with it and that’s brilliant.” – Jurgen Klopp

It was the Magpies’ weaknesses that dictated which of the Liverpool defenders were able to pull in offensive returns. They have been particularly vulnerable to players with aerial threat and set pieces this season, which is why Virgil van Dijk (£6.7m) was able to convert perhaps the easiest header of his career into the net, completely unmarked, in the 13th minute.

Also benefitting hugely in this department was Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.7m) who took the corner for that opener. His ability to cross the ball in early from wide areas helped him to his second assist of the night when Salah converted his 28th-minute chance.

His pair of assists on Saturday night helped make Premier League history, in fact. The England international has now provided 11 of them this season, and is just one short of colleague Andrew Robertson (£6.8m). Crucially, those who have opted to own both of the two full-backs have been handsomely rewarded this season, as they have arguably been the most effective defensive double-up in FPL history. The efforts of Alexander-Arnold and Robertson mean that it is the first time in Premier League history that two defenders from the same club have produced more than 10 assists in a campaign.

“The first goal, Pete Krawietz and Greg and James, our analysts, what they do around set-pieces is unbelievable. It is really nice to see. Having Virgil van Dijk completely free in the box is pretty rare, it was a wonderful routine.” – Jurgen Klopp

However, it must be said that Alexander-Arnold was hugely fortunate to last longer than 20 minutes at Newcastle. He was the last bastion of defence for one of Newcastle’s first-half counter-attacks, blocking Salomón Rondón‘s (£5.9m) shot with his elbow, before it was converted by Christian Atsu (£5.1m). Had Liverpool been able to clear their lines, it is likely that they would have conceded a penalty for the handball and Alexander-Arnold would have been sent off.

In scoring twice, Newcastle demonstrated that their offensive potential is not necessarily dependent on Miguel Almirón (£6.0m). The Paraguayan international transformed the pace of their attack since signing in January, and also brought out the best in Ayoze Pérez (£6.1m) in recent weeks. It had been thought that going up against Liverpool without Almirón might see the Magpies offer little in the way of goal threat, but they asked Liverpool plenty of questions.

Rondón, in particular, was a constant menace, not only with his characteristic running and pressing off the ball but with his efforts on goal too. No player on the pitch had more shots in the box, either total or inside the box, than the Venezuelan international, suggesting he could act as an effective differential signing for the Gameweek 38 trip to relegated Fulham.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dúbravka; Ritchie, Dummett, Lascelles, Schär (Muto 90+1′), Manquillo; Atsu, Ki, Hayden, A Pérez; Rondón.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson, van Dijk, Lovren (Milner 66′), Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum (Shaqiri 66′), Fabinho, Henderson; Mané, Sturridge, Salah (Origi 73′).

    Arsenal have to do it the hard way also after that but atleast you could see they were trying, unlike a certain team.

        I'm mad as I was sitting on that move all this week. If only I had the balls to do it earlier!

      * D Fraser

    3. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      I am looking at Fraser and then Vardy in with other FT

  4. diesel001

    Arsenal EL win would be good for the PL. 5 teams in the CL.

    1. Dr Van Nostrand
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      But means the other 4 qualifiers have to split the pie with another team. Personally rather Arsenal do one.

  5. Deulofail

    FH team. What dya reckon? 0.0 ITB

    Gunn
    Laporte, Walker, Shaw
    Sterling (C), Pogba, Mané, Salah (V)
    Lacazette, Wilson, Zaha

    Norris | Schelotto, Connolly, Elliott

    1. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Hmm just realised that Gunn sat out the last game. Bit of an issue

      1. Danstoke82
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Gunn will play imo. Saints want to finish on a flourish, Forster was only brought in so Hasenhuttl could assess.

    2. Rider on the Storm
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Lacazette is too bad

    3. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not enough Aguero

    4. Pia06rc
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Don't really like Gunn, Walker, Shaw, Pogba or Lacazatte picks and Salah might be injured?

      Man U are terrible and have nothing to play for, Walker offers little attacking threat, Southampton are Southampton and Lacazatte hasn't scored in 3 games and has a low ceiling.

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Laca scored 2 goals in his last game before today 😉

        Point taken about the rest, but if I get rid of them, I'm gonna need replacements who might not be better! 😀

        1. Pia06rc
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Sorry mate I was meaning in the league re: Lacazatte, still feel he has a low ceiling generally as usually just gets a goal or an assist. Burnley will no doubt park the bus again.

          I'd probs go triple Pool and triple city for sure as per the below. Maybe even double Pool defence as they are full of attacking returns ATM!

    5. Pia06rc
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd want Aguero, at least one Liverpool defender, maybe Hazard and/or a Spurs player

    6. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I would get 3 pool and 3 city if on FH
      Get Laca to Aguero would be a start too

  6. tucaoneo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Mat Ryan is a f**king legend. He got me more points than Jimenez + Jota + Son + Shaw + Robertson.

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A bit sad really considering he only got four points and beat that list.

      1. Daniel S.

        We only missed penalty save 😉

    Amazing that my rank actually improve from yesterday with only 1 player today. Had expected a drop

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Hazard? Luiz?

      ... Lossl? 😆

      1. money face bandwagon

        Hazard haha

    2. Yank Revolution

      I lost 1k places (Leno only for me today)

  8. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Not many issues currently. Jimimez out for one of the following?

    Foster
    VVD Robbo Valery
    Bilva Pogba Hazard Mane
    Vardy Aguero Jiminez

    Ryan Brooks Doherty Valery

    A, Rashford
    B, Zaha
    C, Wilson

    1. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I like Zaha. You already have Pogba so I wouldn't double on United.

  9. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Getting rid of Son & Firmino for final day, can afford basically anyone other than Salah/Haz as replacements. Who should I have on my shortlist?

    Currently looking at Redmond, Zaha, Pogba, Rashford, Vardy. Any other good options?

  10. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    When I have taken hits I have lost points so I'm became afraid of taking hits which would have payed off. Catch 22 I guess.

  11. Daniel S.

    Chelsea 3rd and safe in CL next year. Juhuuuuuu.

  12. moment
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    28 (-4) with Sterling and Kun (C) to go... limping over the finish line here.

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      26 (-4) with Sterling and Kun (C) too.
      Rank after today games is 12,506. Will be tough to finish the season inside the top 10k.
      I need magic from Aguero, a Leicester goal and some return from Sterling.

  13. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Loftus-Cheek may actually be a good fantasy option next season. That was some praise by Sarri...

      I said this earlier too

      I think he's improved so much and he fits within the role of the position he plays so well. He gets involved in goals and assists as well, so as long as he can keep himself injury-prone I think he's guaranteed to be in my team next season

      1. boredjames
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I wouldn’t want anyone injury prone personally

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Injury Prone = 20

          Didn’t take me too long to work out this was a bad stat in the CM/FM editor!

    2. tucaoneo

      He needs to address that issue with his back in the summer.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Wow. 'Next season he will be one of the best midfielders in Europe'

      Magic Bean is becoming a real beanstalk

      1. Lord Tachanka
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Did Joe mock Mark for anyone else in the last year or two.

        That’s Terrence Trent Derby and the Magic nailed on in squads next year!

  14. Daniel S.

    Crucially, those who have opted to own both of the two full-backs have been handsomely rewarded this season, as they have arguably been the most effective defensive double-up in FPL history.

    1. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Yeah. There have been some good ones in the past like Baines & Goalman, Shaw and Clyne (Saints), but Robertson and TAA are by far the best.

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Mane, VVD and Robertson the three Liverpool you needed.

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        3-5-2 probably the best formation this season:

        Pickford
        Digne VVD Robertson
        Siggy Mane Sterling Hazard(c) Fraser
        Wilson Jimenez

        Etheridge - AWB - Bednarek - Success

        Without autosubs, without chips and with Haz(c) you would have 2,340 pts with that team. Good enough for a Top 4k OR.

    3. AndyCook
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Last few weeks but over the season Van Dijk and Robertson were the pair.

        1. McEwan
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Nah, if you factor in price aswell. 30 odd points difference with extra 1 mill and bench points for games Trent missed.

    4. Rider on the Storm

      1. wernerhedgehog
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Zaha for now. Last home game motivation i think. but honestly I'm thinking Rondon atm.

    6. Tibbs
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Son owners, who are you replacing with, who is your GW38 'punt'?

      Pogba seems the sensible choice but I'm thinking Townsend

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        David Silva

      2. shearer9
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Moura. Was dangerous while it was 11v11 and he's leading the line in a potentially must-win game.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Awful advice. Everton look solid as heck.

      3. Weasel Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Was thinking Redmond but not so sure now.

      4. McEwan
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Was hoping from something from Pogba today to make him the go to option. Plenty will go a different route unfortunately for me

      5. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        One of the Silva brothers maybe 😉

      6. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Redmond or BSilva.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Or Fraser.

    7. shearer9
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Rashford look any good today? It's him or Vardy in for me.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Vardy rather than Rashford

      2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Vardy or Zaha

      3. Weasel Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Go Vardy.
        Utd are useless

      4. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Awful

      5. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Rashford was horrible. And worse, lazy and sullen.

      6. Well you know, Triffic
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Made good runs in the first half. Bad final pass from teammates otherwise he'd of got in behind 3 times. Second half missed a good chance.

      7. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        He was dog turd.

    8. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Who will win?
      A. Laporte, Vardy, Kun (c)
      B. Stones, Bilva +7 pts, first sub for Stones : AWB 1 pt.

      Ta.

      1. McEwan
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        If your involved, I hope your A because I don’t see it being close

    9. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      27 pts
      Laporte Bilva Kun(c) to play.

      Not sure what to think

      1. McEwan
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yeah, not great, but it’s surely only going one direction from here if that can be considered a positive?

    10. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Who wins?

      A) Ederson, Laporte, Sterling (C)
      B) Aguero (C) + 13

      1. Gudjohnsen

        It’s basically Aguero vs Sterling

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Yes or if Leicester score

      Rank before tomorrow game is 12,506.
      Aguero (C) and Sterling left to play.
      No City defense, no Vardy.
      Do you think top 10k is still reachable this week of will it go down to the final Gameweek of the season ?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        All depends on Aguero.

      2. shearer9

        Basically same here. And I'm not sure.

        1. tafrère
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A City clean sheet and we're done imo.

        These 2 do well tomorrow and you could crack it.

        After getting to 13,200 yesterday falling to 16,105 today so with Aguero (c) and Sterling unlikely now I am going to get into to 10 K which was target - but think you have good chance

        1. tafrère
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Tough to end a season just outside the top 10k. Even if top 20k is still a very good finish.

            And you. I suspect GW38 will have to be a death or glory differential punt for the top10K

      6. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Goes down to 38

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        if they do well you might be close, down to last week.

      Sarri will rest his first team against Leicester, in preparation for the EL final (assuming they grt through).

      Worried Haz owner here. Thinking of selling him

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Europa League Final is on 29th May.

        1. Well you know, Triffic
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          He has no reason to start anyone with two days rest after the Thursday game. Injuries rise with short turnarounds.

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            If Hazard does not take part in that match I will eat hat.

          2. FPL Pillars
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            No chance fella, you’re just trolling

        2. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Wtf 😮
          2 weeks break ??

          Hazard should start then 😮

      2. Bat Man
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Still can do damage from the bench

      3. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Apparently they need the extra money that finishing third instead of fourth brings 😀

      4. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years

        Are you John Snow because you know nothing 😀

      5. Annie

        Doubt it

    14. Bat Man
      • 2 Years

      Son Auba to Sterling Zaha for a -4?

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        No brainer

    15. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      53 pts with Sterling and Aguero left to play.
      Hopefully I break into top 30K with that

          Sure but you still have Aguero(c)
          I did Hazard(c) so just have them two left

          1. MTPockets
            • 11 Years

            Still a great score this week. Good luck

        You are currently, touch and go whether you remain there at gw end, my guess is no

        1. OldBenKenobi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          All depends on Aguero really

    16. Gooner Kebab
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A bit of a tricky choice, please pick one:

      a) Ederson, Robbo, Arnie and Valery
      b) Laporte, Gunn, Rash and Shaw

      1. Pia06rc
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 months ago

        A, by a fair stretch

    17. ludaslol
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Does ings start next game?

    18. Adderz
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Anyone else taking a massive punt on Mason Greenwood for next week (if he's fit?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        Nope.

        1. Adderz
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Gonna be jealous of my one pointer

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Why even bother playing if you’re picking such players

        1. Adderz
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          A Man United striker that's likely to play against Cardiff at home?

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 2 months ago

            The Man United striker that started away to Huddersfield just did really well.

            1. Adderz
              • 9 Years
              1 year, 2 months ago

              They're different people though

      3. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        You know he plays for Man United right?

    19. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Was thinking of ManU player for Son for the last game since Im going for the first time at Old Trafford( fan for 40 years). What do you think? Only have Shaw for that game. Maybe go for other option and just enjoy and not think about FPL ...

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        The 2nd option

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 months ago

        'Enjoy'
