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.

  4. Team17
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Wilshire could be an absolute steal this season at 5mil. Fit again, looked great in pre-season.

    Bookmark for later when West ham lose 6-0 and he limps off in the 23rd minute.

    1. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I want to see how Noble fits in when he returns, but I agree, Wilshere looked very good in pre-season.

      1. Team17
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Pleasant surprise seeing him back and playing like the Wilshire of old. Even if it was only pre-season. And I think he starts regardless of Noble. Looks like he might have some goals and assists in his locker this season too. But, like with Chelsea and Man Utd assets, waiting until GW3 to see the lay of the land....

    2. The One True Marvin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I've really never understood what people see in Wilshire. I just don't get it.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        He’s English

      2. Respect My Authoritah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Similar player to Ross Barkley

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

          I actually prefer Barkley, but not by much.

      3. Team17
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        On his day, English football's most talented midfielder.

      4. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        When he's fit and keen to play he's a class act, but these factors do not often occur together,

    Scripts

    Been using Nick Childs Tampermonkey scrip for years, but can't get it to work now.

    Anyone got a similar useful script? Better FPL doesn't seem to have been as detailed as the one mentioned previously.

    Any suggestions please

    FPL discovery moved or just not running this season?

    1. gamesmad11
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I would love to know the answer or any alternatives!!!

    2. Malilk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Think they changed the back end. None of the bonus points live feeds seem to be working

  7. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    West Ham looking good squad wise:

    Fabianski
    Fredericks Diop Balbuena Cresswell
    Wilshere Rice
    Yarmolenko Lanzini Anderson
    Haller

    Roberto
    Zabaleta Reid Ogbonna Masuaku
    Noble Sanchez
    Antonio Fornals Snodgrass
    Hernandez

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Get yarmolenko out of there. Fornals in first team by miles over him. Ajeti over Hernandez as back you st too but yes we are finally ready to go for top half consistently and easily, time to challenge for Europe this year

  8. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    *adds Rodri to watch list*

    1. Four Hit Wonder
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      He's the DM Pep has been looking for. If he gets into advanced positions he'd be a bargain...

      1. Giggs Boson.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        With Gundogan and Fernandinho as competition, he'll likely get Pep'd at some point.

  9. Four Hit Wonder
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Gotta love this WHUFC lineup. 4-2-3-1, cautiously offensive. New striker up front, with almost no support. The likes of Chicarito and Snodgrass on the bench if/when things go wrong.

    0-4, Sterling 2g 1a

    1. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I expect Antonio to stay high up the pitch during the defensive phase. Distributing to Haller and Antonio on City's weak left flank seems the obvious strategy. Those two are dominant in the air.

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      far too simplistic - I expect West Ham to give them a headache or two.

    3. jia you jia you

      Almost spot on tbf mate, well done!

  10. VAR Star
    • 4 Years

    There’s an update on Alisson from a journalist called Maddock.

    Calf tear (grade 2) - average of a month out.

    1. VAR Star
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I’d wait for official confirmation before doing anything of course

      1. Cpt Crunch Scott talent
        • 5 Years

        Of course

    2. Cpt Crunch Scott talent
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A month. Gonna have to transfer him in then bar no other injuries in my team

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Transfer him in?

        1. Cpt Crunch Scott talent
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Aah no, meant Adrian of course

    3. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A month equals about 4 to 5 games. Think il stick with robbo and my heaton+Pope and not get tempted to budge. Hopefully my rivals waste 2 transfers 🙂

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        2 transfers is not even enough, if it means ditching VvD and getting also him back.

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Several sources reporting the same. Yo Adrian!

    5. VAR Star

      He’s the Daily Mirror Liverpool correspondent who has just tweeted this

      3 months, 8 days ago

      Ideally 10-1 to city with these two scoring and assisting all 10. Zinchenko own goal and Laporte sent off.

      Not too much to ask is it?

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Perfect - thank you for arranging it all.

    If City get a cleanie, there won't be enough seats in the Ederson bandwagon

    Boring 1-0 with Laporte goal please

      Sorry but zero chance of that

    2. Rupert The Horse

      I'd take that.

      Own goal you mean?

  17. CONNERS

    Just seen that over 10,000 people have transferred out Robertson. You have to laugh.

      If he falls in price I’m going to be very very annoyed....

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Well it depends how long Allison is out for and how much of an impact Adrian has on clean sheet potential.

          Without clean sheets he isn’t value as they need clean sheets for the bonus points.

          I’ve currently got Robbo and VVD so if Allison is out for a long period moving one of them to Laporte will be very tempting

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            COULD BE, BUT I'D WANT TO GIVE THEM 3 OR 4 MORE GAMES, BY WHICH POINT ALISSON WILL BE BACK ANYWAY.

      2. POLSKA GOLA

        That’s too little of his total ownership to cause a drop

      It was 4200 transfers out 1h after the game yesterday lol

    3. CONNERS

      Don't worry. They'll all transfer him back in again next weekend after he gets a clean-sheet and assist.

      The market is so volatile at this early stage. I aim to take advantage.

        You cannot jumpto every false bandwagon.

      No way I'm getting rid, he's a season keeper barring injury, etc.

      More amusingly, nearly 3k have transferred out Kane already.

    Still can't quite believe I don't have Sterling

      Sterling to Euro imo. Only getting worse under Boris.

      nice

    Pricing Adrian at 4.5 is fpls plan.. They want you to downgrade an expensive pool defender(1 transfer), and waste a transfer on pope to adrian(1 transfer) and send the extra money (1 transfer) and then swap him back to pope(1 transfer) so that after a month your are stuck with Pope and no pool wing back and have wasted all your transfers doing feck all

    1. Leeds2116
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      no point for 1 month

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Or he's just the same price as Mignolet 😉

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      He was probably considered 3rd gk option originally and therefore underpriced.

  20. Das Boot

    1st game of the season hiding behind the couch, no City at all yet

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Pretty silly move that pal

    2. Leeds2116
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      why

      1. Das Boot
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Wasn't sure whether to go Sterling or Aguero which in all fairness seems to have been sorted out now given Aguero being benched and fancied Pool defenders over City for attacking stats.

        1. Das Boot
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Also fancied Son over De Bruyne when he is back

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

      Ouch

      Very brave

      I suggest Pascal subsluts, it's a good tv show for you in this moment to while away time

      1. Das Boot

        That's helpful, cheers

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Much obliged 🙂

    “Bilva is nailed this season”
    “Bilva is cost effective way into Man City attack”
    “Bilva played his way into being essential in Pep’s plans”

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Even nailed player's don't play every match

      No need to all have a meltdown

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

        I mean, a 'nailed' player not playing in GW1 is stretching the term a bit

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

          Starting should I say, think he can still get points today

    2. Giggs-Tosun Particle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Bilva for ballon d'or etc

    3. Double Treble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      People should aware KDB is back. Better than Bilva and Bilva not very good play as winger.

    4. Throwback
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No many safe from pep roulette

  22. Hakim Ziyech
    3 months, 8 days ago

    It's Bernardo and 10 other men... Pep things...

    1. Double Treble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Even his lovely Son which is Sterling only got 34 games last season. Let alone Bilva.

      KDB is most nailed attacker bar injury for now imo.

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        3 months, 8 days ago

        The only person nailed is Pep himself

        1. tokara

          This

  23. bench boost for every gamew…
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    the one thing positive with Bernardo benched is that i then really want West ham to shut City down. But most likely is Sterling gonna smash it. West ham do tend to keep things compact when up against the better sides so there´s always hope

    Anyone have Pukki on their radar? Certain to start if fit and looks like he'll get the majority of Norwich's goals again this season. 6.5 isn't super cheap but he could be a good pick.

    1. Four Hit Wonder
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Better than Murray last season, I'd say. And better than the likes of Deeney and Deulofeu.

      1. Jet5605
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        If Martial doesn't deliver then I'm looking at Martial & Greenwood > Pukki & 5.5 mid and switch to 3/4/3.

      2. The Truth Is...
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I think Deulofeu might be a good thing this season

      Later when fixtures turn.

    Anyone know Villas Ronkas fpl ID/link?

    Always interested to see how he starts

    Tbh King has just had one bad gameweek , it’s not the end of the world , give him time !

  27. Joel_J
    3 months, 7 days ago
