Scout Notes

FPL lessons learned from Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Norwich

Liverpool got the new Premier League campaign off to a flying start on Friday night with a 4-1 win over Norwich City.

In this latest Scout Notes article, we have assessed the key Fantasy talking points from Anfield as we start making early preparations for Gameweek 2.

Also, there is a new feature for Scout Notes available to Fantasy Football Scout Members this year.

Each Scout Notes article will end with an analysis of the match data, which, more often than not, can give the best insight into the Fantasy implications, in combination with the eye test, of course.

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich City

Goals: Mohamed Salah (£12.5m), Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m), Divock Origi (£5.5m) | Teemu Pukki (£6.5m)

Own Goals: Grant Hanley (£4.0m)

Assists: Origi, Roberto Firmino (£9.5m), Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) | Emi Buendía (£6.0m)

Bonus Points: Origi x3, Salah x2, Pukki x1

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) rewarded the faith shown in him for the Gameweek 1 captaincy by registering a 12-point haul in Liverpool’s Friday night win.

Owned by 43% of Fantasy managers, and captained by over 60% of those who voted in the Fantasy Football Scout poll for the armband, the Egyptian was most obliging at Anfield.

He scored the second goal in the rout, latching onto the end of Roberto Firmino‘s (£9.5m) through ball and slotting cooly under Tim Krul (£4.5m).

Salah then provided the assist for Virgil van Dijk‘s (£6.5m) goal with a corner. The fact that he took the set piece will be of further encouragement to those in possession of the Egyptian.

Salah celebrates scoring Liverpool’s second goal against Norwich

However, we should not get too carried away by his involvement in the corners at least, as it appears at this early stage of the campaign that he is sharing them with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m).

The left-footed Salah took the responsibility for corners on the left side of the field, while Alexander-Arnold took those on the right, creating out-swinging crosses on both flanks.

It must be said that, despite producing some excellent crosses from open play, and getting an assist from them, the right-back’s delivery from the corner flag was relatively poor against Norwich.

However, those who opted for Alexander-Arnold over Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) were still satisfied with the outcome of the game, as he outscored his colleague by five points to two.

Alexander-Arnold provided the assist for Divock Origi‘s (£5.5m) goal with a trademark cross from deep and should have arguably registered a second assist on the night, were it not for a Firmino miss.

The right-back was played in behind the Norwich defence by a skilful Salah backheel and his ball across the goal was wrapped around the post from very close range by Firmino.

Alexander-Arnold also could have scored as he slammed a second-half direct freekick towards Norwich’s goal, only for Krul to produce an excellent save to keep him out.

Against Norwich, Alexander-Arnold had the edge over Robertson offensively

Robertson owners were perhaps the most disappointed of all considering that van Dijk registered eight points from scoring in the first half.

The Dutchman has now scored six goals in his last 18 appearances for Liverpool as he continues to extend his threat from set-pieces.

The disparity between the three key Liverpool defenders’ Gameweek 1 scores was very much rooted in the fact that Liverpool lost their clean sheet in the second half.

The Reds did not look their usual assured selves at the back in this opening match of 2019/20, even before they were forced into a goalkeeper change in the 38th minute.

Norwich did not make it easy for Liverpool as they, as promised by manager Daniel Farke, refused to park the bus and asked some questions of their illustrious hosts in the first half.

Half-way through the initial period, Norwich had registered more than double the number of Liverpool’s shots (five to two) with Marco Stiepermann (£5.5m) responsible for three of those efforts.

From the off, Norwich looked to get on the ball where possible and pressed Liverpool high up the pitch.

It was this pressure that led their first chance, ensuring that Alisson‘s (£6.0m) wayward pass in the first five minutes was pounced upon by Teemu Pukki (£6.5m). His cross into the box was fired over the bar by Stiepermann but was certainly a warning sign of what Norwich are capable of this season.

Pukki busted the Liverpool clean sheet in the second half

Just as they did on their way to winning the Championship title last season, the Canaries played the ball out from the back as often as possible, even if, at times, it left them a little exposed.

When in possession at the back, the full-backs pushed up the pitch and the centre-backs split across either side of the penalty box to receive passes from goalkeeper Krul.

Even when they were 4-0 down, Norwich were determined to press and prod Liverpool from the front.

That led to substitute Moritz Leitner (£6.0m) finding the space to shoot inside the box around the hour mark, seeing his effort cannon off the crossbar.

These elements of their play are bound to have both positive and negative effects for Norwich this season. It was this energetic insistence on moving the ball and putting pressure on opposing defenders that helped Pukki score their first top-flight goal of the campaign but it is likely to lead to plenty of shots given up – good news for captain candidates set to face the Canaries.

As for the implications on Liverpool, there will certainly be further concern over their defensive assets.

What Norwich were able to do at Anfield was akin to the test Manchester City gave the Liverpool back-line in the Community Shield final.

Klopp did make one change from that match, starting Joe Gomez (£5.5m) at centre-back instead of Joel Matip (£5.5m) but even at this early stage, those with a Liverpool defensive double-up may already be considering their options.

Once again, Liverpool looked especially fragile down Alexander-Arnold’s flank, and Norwich enjoyed most of their work in the first half in his area of the pitch.

The fact that has happened both against elite opposition in Manchester City and a lesser-side in the Canaries might just increase concerns over Alexander-Arnold’s role in the team moving forward.

Alisson had to come off injured in the 38th minute

Those who had grown unfamiliar with just how cruel FPL can be were given a sharp reminder in the first half.

Alisson came into the 2019/20 season as the most selected goalkeeper, in 32.5% of squads, but he was withdrawn in the first half.

The Liverpool shot-stopper went down with a calf problem in the 38th minute and had to be replaced by Adrian (£4.5m), who was added to FPL at £4.5m.

There seemed to be a suggestion from the media that Alisson was not quite ready to come back into the side so soon after returning from Copa America duty over the summer.

Either way, those who signed him for Gameweek 1 will be bitterly disappointed as they scored just one point and may now have to make an unwanted goalkeeper transfer for Gameweek 2.

Alisson has already been ruled out of the European Super Cup clash with Chelsea midweek and is, therefore, a doubt for the trip to Southampton next Saturday.

“The Ali situation is madness. It’s a calf injury. He felt as if something hit him from the back. He will not be ready for Wednesday, I can say that already. It’s probably more than a strain. We will have to see. It does not look too good.” – Jurgen Klopp

In the meantime, could former West Ham man Adrian become an incredible set and forget option for our Fantasy teams? We’ll have to wait for more information on Alisson’s injury but Adrian does have some potential.

“(Adrian) is a very confident guy and he came in and I don’t think he wanted to sit only on the bench for the next couple of years. He made himself ready. It is a situation, but if you are in a situation like this you want to have somebody who has played the league and who is experienced. He is 32, a calm guy, emotional as well, good with his feet – how we saw – and that’s really important for us. There are a lot of good things, but you still don’t want to have a situation where one goalie is fit. That’s how it is, but we have to see.” – Jurgen Klopp

Finally, as expected, Sadio Mané (£11.5m) was missing from the Liverpool starting line-up following his late return from African Cup of Nations commitments this summer.

That allowed Origi feature on the left flank of Liverpool’s 4-3-3 system, and get two attacking returns.

It was his first-half cross that was deflected into the Norwich net by Grant Hanley (£4.0m), and Origi connected with an Alexander-Arnold cross before half-time to make it 4-0.

Whether Origi is involved in Gameweek 2 remains to be seen though, given that Mané replaced him in the 73rd minute.

More importantly, the Senegalese international looked incredibly sharp, bearing down on Norwich’s defence from his position on the left flank. The energy he showed in his 17-minute cameo suggests he is probably raring to get back into the starting line-up.

      Evening here

    That the Pool double D is not as secure as one would have hoped?

    1. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Think its too early to tell based on 1 game.
      The impact of a missing Allisson could well be significant however

    2. Lukakus Unit
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Robbo and TAA are basically 7.0 midfielders in terms of assists, and VVD has 6 goals in his last 18 matches.

        Even without clean sheets, they are better value than most 6.5/7.0 mids/forwards.

        1. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • 2 Years

          Completely agree. I see them as value midfielders with or without clean sheets. I went with Robbo and VVD. Very happy. Will always have Salah so going to stick with those three barring injuries.

    3. AzzaroMax99
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Anyone buying Adrian, if Alison is long term injured?

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        depends on length of injury and current team structure.
        can see it being a popular wildcard choice.

      2. Lukakus Unit
          3 months, 13 days ago

          No for now. Liverpool will tighten up defensively, so you could have the worst of both worlds - very few saves and 1 GA.

          Think Heaton & Pope (and possibly Ryan and Deano) are still better 4.5 GKs.

        • Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Depends how long Allison is out for really.

          If it's months then he's a beautiful set and forget and worth a dip at £4.5m

        • Chelsea91

        This may have already been spoken about but why have FPL done away with the red/orange/yellow flags indicating injury or suspension? Pretty crucial oversight for the busier players isn’t it?

            I mean, Liverpool hit 4 goals, could still be the same outcome with Sterling G & A

          I opted not for Zinc in the end. Incredible price but doesn't attack much, doesn't get many bonus either . I think 6 points is his limit really.

        Lebowski -
        Ultimate team was £150 budget for a 25 man squad (can't remember the exact breakdown of positional players)
        You would be able to make subs in the middle of a GW. For example say you had TAA and he only scored you five yesterday, but you benched say Ake. You could, after the Liverpool game ended, bring Ake in and Bench TAA (losing TAA points but gaining whatever Ake scored). So long as the games were on different Matchdays within the same GWs.
        Couldn't sub red cards etc. Could also change capt choice across matchdays.
        Transfer windows existed you could otherwise "Loan" players. So you could do a loan for 1 GW (-4), 2 GWs (-7), 3 GWs (-10) or 4 GWs (-12) then the players would switch back again.
        If you put a player on the reserve bench you could bring them in inbetween matchdays

          Really thinking about Pukki, there’s a tonne of goals in this Norwich side, they were playing very fluid stuff at times. If Vardy or Wilson doesn’t hit the ground running I’m gonna jump on it I think

            After last night we all should be thinking about Pukki.

              Doubt it, their terrible defence in the championship has already shown it’s not improved even slightly

                They look like last years fulham defensively.. Everyone jumped on Mitrovic and then suddenly he stopped scoring

                    Fulham had sessegnon who is better attacking than any of the norwich lads. They are basically Fulham/huddersfield, the bravado will gradually die away leaving them a nervous wreck not able to defend and not able to attack

            No no no, Liverpool’s outfield players are too valuable to waste a slot on a keeper. Get Salah VVD and TAA

            1. Whiskerz
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              I'd be keeping that space for mane or TAA, but i can see the temptation of a 4.5 route into Liverpools defence.

              Wouldn’t say he is a must have.
              I prefer the excitement of attacking returns from Trent and Robbo

            it really depends what you do with the money.
            unquestionably points per million wise Adrian will be better value than TAA/Robbo/VVD

            1. Markus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              It's about relative value calculations. It will come down to the difference between pope/heaton and Adrian and pool defender vs next best value option. I'd guess Adrian could get around 15-20 more points across the season (155 vs 135-140) if they are slightly weakened defensively. Pool defenders are probably 15-20 points better value than other defenders (180-190 vs 165 that you might get for another hypothetical 6.5-7m player). On the surface it feels like much of a muchness but I'm sure there will be plenty more analysis into it!

            2. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              But people have already made the decision that 2.5m spent on the TAA / Robbo double up with VVD, could be better spent in attack. That’s also why they have Pope and/or Heaton.

              So switching a 4.5m gk to a Liverpool 4.5gk is a no brainer as they already invested that 2.5m.

            Thank you all for your replies. Need to wait further information. Imo if you think simple 4.5 nailed gk in one of the best teams cant be bad choice.

            the triple captain is the least valuable chip imo
            the payout is essentially a single players gameweek score (assuming the best candidate would have been captained anyway) and obviously that comes with ridiculous variance.
            sometimes you get an extra 2 points, sometimes 15.

            bench boost is worth more than that, and free hit is just bonkers value.

                      That's strange because I can't use it.. or see it, just checked the rules so unless they didn't remove it from the FAQ (wouldn't surprise me given current server issues) then I guess you're right...

              True.

              But it could work both ways. They'll probably still captain the DGW player we'll all TC, but it's the thought that it's gone already.

              Also let's face it, most of us would be unhappy with a 12 point return from a TC on a DGW though.

            If he right/wrong DGW fixture pops up someone’s could knock a 20 pointer out of it...

            But on the whole 12 point season is pretty good, certainly not a disaster

            15 would be ideal

                  As per a few posts (probably those less in the know - myself included until 15 minutes ago). Adrian is price locked until the 17th (new players don't price change for eight days). Therefore you'd still bank, maximum 1.5M or minimum 1.2M (if Alisson's price plummeted)

              Of course I understand the keeper situation, but swapping out defenders already doesn't make a lot of sense at the minute.

              No sense in already making tf until at least today's games are over, and I would wait till tomorrow is done as well

          Anyone at all anxious about some games being postponed? It is SO windy here on the south coast

            Only Wilson playing on the South Coast on my team so not ideal, but no.

            Very much doubt games are called off due to wind.

            We can't see "Team Value" & "In the Bank" anymore, can we?

              we can't. copy teams or transfers is now more complicated. But points will be more deserved.

              Yes? I can, but I never use the app. I use the website on Chrome.

                I meant on other players' 'Points' page.

                Can also see it on 'My Team' for Chrome.

                Im not too bothered as I never checked rivals balance much, but sometimes useful say they had 4m ITB for a premium forward or something. Made the H2Hs competitive.

                  Look at history

                    I see Team Value on the GW History rows, but that doesn't show ITB (for Others, I can see my own).

                    It used to appear in a box on others 'Points' page.

                      I know what you mean, probably so people could stop reverse engineering transfers for the week ahread

              Wait a minute, you're right (and so was everyone else before the game started), it does seem to have been removed!

              Yes, you can only play when confirming transfers

              It still says this on the site but no idea where it is.

              "The Free Hit chip can be used once a season, is played when confirming your transfers and can't be cancelled after confirmed."

                Make transfers, when you confirm you can play wc or fh

                I’m pretty sure it will be updated after all games are played
