Salah blanks as mediocre Liverpool concede again

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool

Goals: Danny Ings (£6.0m) | Sadio Mané (£11.5m), Roberto Firmino (£9.5m)

Assists: James Milner (£5.5m), Mané

Bonus Points: Mané x3, Firmino x2, Ings x1

Liverpool’s performance at Southampton on Saturday proved right those Fantasy Premier League managers who had concerns after the Super Cup final.

Having played 120 minutes in Istanbul midweek, the Reds probably did not deserve to take all three points from the Saints as they did not play to their usual high standards.

That led to Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) recording his first blank of the 2019/20 season at just the second hurdle.

The Egyptian was largely anonymous at the St. Mary’s Stadium, only finding himself presented with one decent chance on Saturday afternoon.

After making a trademark run cutting in from the right, Salah bore down on Angus Gunn‘s (£4.5m) goal, only for Southampton’s shot-stopper to deflect the effort away with his feet.

Salah was pulled off in the 78th minute at Southampton

Despite Klopp’s insistence that a 120-minute outing would not hamper Salah in Gameweek 2, Liverpool’s manager took the player off in the 78th minute and replaced him with Divock Origi (£5.6m).

Whether Fantasy managers should have any lasting concerns about Salah remains to be seen though.

It will not be every week that the Egyptian will be forced into extra-time midweek before a Saturday Premier League match.

Furthermore, with a home match against Arsenal next, a side who Liverpool scored five against at Anfield last season, it probably does not serve well to make any kneejerk reactions to Salah’s Gameweek 2 blank.

However, a 14-point haul for Sadio Mané (£11.5m) might just give some Fantasy managers itchy feet.

The former Southampton man returned to the starting line-up after his late return from African Cup of Nations action over the summer and got himself a goal and assist against his former employers.

The Senegalese international played only 103 minutes in the Super Cup final, which might have helped his cause, although in truth he wasn’t any more involved in the Liverpool action than Salah.

Yes, it was his excellent curled effort from range that gave Liverpool the lead, but he, like Salah, was also not at his best in a game largely dominated by Southampton.

Firmino scored what proved to be the winner for Liverpool but they were far from their best at Southampton

The same goes for Roberto Firmino (£9.5m), who outscored Salah in this game but did not necessarily offer much more than him across the course of the game.

We pointed out in Gameweek 1 that the Brazilian had registered more shots than Salah against Norwich, but it was the Egyptian who had more efforts on goal in this game.

Southampton asked plenty of questions of the European champions in the opening 45 minutes, Nathan Redmond (£6.5m) exploiting space on Trent Alexander-Arnold’s (£7.0m) side of the pitch.

The former Norwich midfielder saw a fierce effort go wide early on before Che Adams (£6.0m) dragged just beyond the far post from a corner.

Goalkeeper Adrian (£4.5m), who came through an ankle injury scare, was very much at the heart of Southampton’s attacking play for much of the game.

Early on, his clearance was charged down by James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m), setting the tone for the afternoon.

For long periods, the former West Ham man kept his side in the game, his most impressive save a point-blank stop from a Maya Yoshida (£4.5m) header after a Southampton corner.

Adrian was at the heart of the narrative for Liverpool’s win over Southampton

Adrian also made some good saves in the second half too, but ultimately it was exclusively his fault when Danny Ings (£6.0m) scored in the 83rd minute.

In almost a carbon copy of what happened with Ward-Prowse in the first half, his attempted clearance was charged down by the forward, who did not have to add a second touch to see the ball roll into an empty net.

“Yes (I have spoken to Adrian): ‘You finally arrived, welcome!’ Ali did the same. Obviously, it’s a goalie thing at Liverpool, no problem with that as long as we win the games. All good.” – Jurgen Klopp

The fact that Adrian allowed himself to get closed down on two occasions will not inspire confidence in owners of Liverpool defensive assets, especially those with a double-up in this department. That said, Klopp did insist that his team played him too many short passes today, in light of his recent injury. Maybe a return to full fitness for Gameweek 3 might help Adrian somewhat.

“Adrian had a swollen ankle and we played too many balls back to him in that period. I was happy with everything he did today, all the saves, all that stuff. The other players have to then feel more the responsibility for the build-up and cannot give all the balls back to him and hope the pain killers still help or whatever. I don’t think the goal was because of that, but a few other balls were. He is completely good with his feet. If you would have seen his ankle on Thursday after we left the plan then you would say even the pass before the [Southampton] goal was better than you would have expected! It is all fine.” – Jurgen Klopp

Owners of key Liverpool defensive assets were left disappointed on Saturday afternoon

Southampton burst into a late fight-back and probably should have levelled things up, Ings screwing wide from short-range shortly after busting Liverpool’s clean sheet.

Either way, after what Norwich achieved at Anfield in Gameweek 1, Southampton’s domination of this game will add further worry to those with Liverpool defenders.

Unfortunately for those invested in Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m), or a combination, Liverpool did not get enough going to soften the blow of losing the clean sheet with some attacking returns.

Those concerned about the double-up especially will perhaps not be too excited about Arsenal coming to Anfield in Gameweek 3.

    Best point prospect between these options:

    A) TAA + VVD + Kane with Dendocker 1st sub
    B) TAA + Son + Wilson with Montoya 1st sub..with a view to move wilson > rashford in gw5

    Thoughts on this wildcard lot?

    Pope
    VVD - Laporte - Digne - AWB
    Mane - Sterling - KDB - Martial
    Pukki - Jota/Barnes
    (4.0 - Cantwell - Greenwood - Lundstarm)

    1. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Laporte -> Zinchenko
      Try to find the remaining funds to do Martial -> Son
      Other than that, great

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cheers mate!

        Will look into Son.

    3. *sigh*
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Similar to mine but I went slightly cheaper defence to get Son instead of Martial.

      Pope
      VVD - AWB - Söyüncü
      Mane - Sterling - KDB - Son
      Pukki - Jota - Barnes

      (Button - Cantwell - Greenwood - Lundstram)

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Looks good but I don't like the look of 3 x 6.5m strikers.

        1. *sigh*
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Karan it would make it easier if I didn't want Son so much. Other option was with Kane but means rotating two 4.5 mids.

          Pope
          Robertson - AWB - Söyüncü
          Mane - Sterling - KDB - Dendoncker
          Pukki - Kane - Barnes

          (Button - Cantwell - Pieters - Lundstram)

      2. *sigh*
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Sorry Pieters instead of Greenwood (that was my other draft).

    4. Karhumies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Have you considered Zinchenko, Boly, Soyuncu, Kelly for defense? And Trossard, Ceballos for midfield? I am not totally convinced of Pope without a back up 4.5 keeper (Ryan/Henderson), either.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Yeah Laporte to Zinchenko is something I'm considering.

        Still a lot of question marks around Trossard & Ceballos they aren't nailed. Prefer McGinn over them.

        Boly, Soyunco & Kelly don't tempt me that much but I will have a look.

        1. Karhumies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          McGinn has decent fixtures. However, Ceballos will rise soon, so you won't have a lot of time to think about him or you miss the opportunity for Arsenal attacking midfielder for 5.5M against Adrian. Trossard is a rotation risk based on opponent/formation, sure.

          Lundstram does not tempt me, so Laporte to Zinchenko would allow you to upgrade him to Boly/Soyuncu with option of putting 0.5 into second GK if you choose Soyuncu.

      2. *sigh*
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Will have a tinker but not sure Kelly will get much playing time.

        1. Karhumies
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          IMO, Soyuncu > Kelly > Lundstram. I don't expect any of the 4.0 defenders to get a lot of playing time in the long run, so my plan is/was to go with Kelly for a few games hoping for some CS points before I upgrade him into something else.

  3. HIT ME!

    I was close to rage transfer Salah out for Mane.
    Patience.

      Yeah don’t do it if you didn’t plan on doing so

  4. The Sherwinator

    A - Mane, KDB and King
    B - Mane, Kane and 5mil mid (A. Pereira/Sissoko/please recommend anyone else)

    Current Team
    Fabianski Button

    Casualties - Salah, Wilson and Perez

  5. Srv210
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Now I'm getting really confused in who to select
    A) KDB
    B) Son

    Anybody who can turn my mind towards one??

    1. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A he’s on clearly great form

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      KDB for next 2 GWs, see how Son does and then get Son after Arsenal game if he looks good.

    3. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Pondering exactly the same. Leaning towards KDB because I'm unsure of Poch's tactics tbf. Could throw a surprise by not starting Son and that could hurt his scoring against Newcastle. On the other hand, KDB is a nailed starter and plays against a **fabulous** Bournemouth defense.

    4. thepeen555
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Has to be A of its one or the other

    5. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I have KDB setup as a placeholder initially.

      Now I'm gonna keep him

    6. Man Getting Hit By Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      My dilemma. I had KDB to start with, with the idea to do a direct swap. Now I'm looking at taking a hit to do Perez -> Son.

      KDB is a must with this City attack.

  6. Team Cruel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Which would you rather have?

    A)
    Salah - Sterling - Martial - Dendonker (Cantwell)
    Kane - Pukki (Greenwood)

    B)
    Salah - Sterling - Martial (Dendonker - Cantwell)
    Rashford - Pukki - King

    1. The Sherwinator
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A for next gw, B longer term

  7. jomikijiq
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who do you think are the best

    1. jomikijiq
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      mid price forwards in the next few weeks apart from Pukki? *

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Rashy

    3. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      If he is fit, Haller. Watford, Norwich and Villa are his next 3 games

  8. The_Fish
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    What to do with Lucas Moura?

    1. Bookkeeper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Observe over next few weeks.

    2. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      His goal has really made the decision tough. I'd say hold for next week and see how Son impacts Moura's minutes. Won't be surprised to see Moura, Son and Kane as front three and Lamela getting benched! Poch the Spurs Pep!

    3. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Holding for next week then reassess

  9. Will Kane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Think I have missed the boat for the Pukki party. Going to spend all season watching other people have fun at it whilst pretending I don't want to be there. I'll be having a King/Wilson party in GW3 with their easy fixture vs Man City. Anyone want to come?

    1. jomikijiq
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I'm on Wilson/King currently too. Want to transfer out one of them now, but at the same time don't want Pukki until GW6.

    2. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      *crickets chirping*

    3. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Does this party include overpriced WKD blues, sticky carpents and a slight aroma of body odour and cheese?

    4. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      At what point did you get Jiménez last year?

      1. Will Kane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Haven't played for the last two years, and played like an idiot the season before that, so I'm essentially trying to re-learn the game this year. I know the stats totally back up Pukki but I'm going to wait a couple more weeks to see if he becomes absolutely essential, or whether more viable options emerge.

    5. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      You can still get him in. Only .2 more expensive.

    6. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      If there was a party I really wanted to go to and they put the ticket prices up by 1.5%, I reckon I'd still probably go.

      1. Devo-McDuff
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        The organisers put the prices up again! 3% the cheeky sods. I'd still probably go, depends how skint I was.

  10. Obi Wan Elokobi
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Genuinely considering wildcarding to this. Year of the big hitters I think

    Pope (Button)
    Digne, Boly, Sonyuncu, (Kelly, Lund)
    Mane, Sterling, KDB, Ceballos, Martial
    Kane, Pukki, (Greenwood)
    Thoughts?

    1. PlayPercentage
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Some weeks, you may struggle to get enough defenders on the pitch.

    2. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • 4 Years

      Ballsy
      Defence is shocking though

      1. Obi Wan Elokobi
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I could easily chuck in a load of 4.5’s

    3. HIT ME!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Downgrade Kane to Son and upgrade the defence

  11. PlayPercentage
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Will Ceballos get regular starts for Arsenal?
    He looked good yesterday, and Unai Emery has mentioned that he can play as a number 10 attacking midfielder, or in central midfield.
    Could be a bargain @5.5

    1. MagnetBPS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      He was amazing yesterday, he reminds me of Santi Cazorla.

      1. PlayPercentage
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I get the feeling that Ceballos will be a key figure in Unai Emery's new midfield. Ozil will feature less and less.

    2. Jafoole_88
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      If Ozil keeps getting mugged on the streets, I reckon Ceballos will play the no.10 role

    3. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      liv/TOT up next so can probably wait and see

      1. PlayPercentage
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        TOT could be a goal fest.

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Maybe. Just that there's also Ozil and Mkhi, and Torreira, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Willock.
          Does that suggest nailed? I don't know

    4. Balls of Steel
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Looked really sharp yesterday and had an excellent game all round, its a wait a see for me but very tempting after next 2 fixtures.

    5. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I think he’ll become this year’s Brooks, only playing in an attacking Arsenal.

  12. Giggs Boson.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    I'm sure Adrian will be working on his passing in training all week after that error. Tough way to lose a double Liverpool CS, but I'm sticking with the double for now.

    1. PlayPercentage
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Maybe he was just mentally tired after the midweek high.

    2. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Tbf, Pool were lucky to only concede a single goal. Suppose any other better team could have got at least 1-2 more goals. I can see Pool conceding again next week and so think there is better value in downgrading one of the two and upgrading somewhere else.

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
        • 4 Years

        Agreed

        1. Balls of Steel
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Liverpool were all over the place defensively yesterday, I'm not impressed with them from what I've seen of the first 3 games of the season including super cup, downgrade and use the funds elsewhere.

    Hey All,

    we have a mini-league with more than 30 participants. we have a weekly prize and yearly for the top 5. every week it's really laborious to deduct transfer points and create an excel to find the weekly winners.

    Are there any other moderators or mini-league here? How do you guys handle this? A bit of JSON code and some macros can help to automate this process, I guess. however, I am not good at it.

    Any help / comments/ suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is Trossard still up in the air regarding a nailed starting spot? I thought he looked very good yesterday?

    1. Giggs Boson.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      He was very good, but who knows with Potter.

    2. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Hopefully that performance yesterday was good enough to make him nailed in the short term at least. Looks like a good FPL player, took loads of shots

    3. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Looks like the coach likes to alternate formations/players depending on away/home games. Groß played first game and he's quality.

      B).

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      B in terms of fixtures and captaincy
      But still not sure Kane's worth it vs other Spurs options (or Salah vs Mane for that matter)

  16. Grounderz

      A

  17. Dynamic Duos

      No

  18. SUPER MOKH

    Will Pukki rise again before Wolves vs MU?

    I wish I could just wait and see how Jota performs. I need another forwards to replace my current pair (Wilson and Ings). I have 2 FTs so Wilson Ings > Pukki Jota is my idea. But I'm afraid Pukki will rise again and outpriced.

    Alternatively, I'm looking at Barnes but not too overly fond of him.

      He will definitely rise

      Yes. I have Pukki and Jota.

    Stick or twist with Wilson?
    Others Barnes, Pukki are much cheaper and seem like they can keep up with pointd

      I’d stick, im looking to remove king but Wilson is better

      Stick. Great value.

    Which one?

    1. Fraser + TAA -> KDB + AWB

    2. Fraser + TAA -> Son + AWB

    TAA = Only Liv defender, have Salah
    KDB = Double up with Raz

    Thanks for your help!

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years

      Son a better fpl prospect over KDB imo

      1. KGFC
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Son offers a higher ceiling definitely. I have doubts about whether he will start against NEW and his minutes given so many options in MF.

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      1 - just because KDB form is a known and good fixtures
      Bailing on all Liv defence is a risk though

      1. KGFC
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        No Liv defense is a challenge with such high ownership levels. But Pool's only clear cut chances to keep a cleanie in the next 4 is against Newcastle; 50-50 against Burnley; and against Arsenal and Chelsea, think Pool will concede. Therefore, thinking of ditching the Pool defense altogether.

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Quite possibly. I've sold Robertson to afford KDB, kept VVD

            Who have you got in for Robbo?

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Joel Ward to rotate

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Nice one! All the best!

      1, son has a lot of competition in that spurs midfield. Wait and see

  21. Lebowski85
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    If your wildcarding...which group would you like

    A - stronger 11
    Pope / Mina / Walker / Lundstram / Pogba / Xande Silva

    B - stronger squad
    Pickford / Digne / Dunk / Pieter's
    Trossard / Barnes

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      B

    Should I remove Wilson or hold?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I think I would hold. He has good PPG average and after the City game, Bournemouth’s fixtures are decent.

    2. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I got rid

    How did Kane look yesterday? Worth getting?

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Hardly recall him touching the ball, except one very speculative effort.
      But to be fair Newcastle aren't Man City

      1. KGFC
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        If it helps...during Pep's post-match comments', the presenter said that Spurs had 3 shots in the entire match with one of them being hit from near the half-way mark by Kane. Pep shot it down by saying, that's not a shot!! 😀

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I think it is better to look how he was against Villa. He was anonymous yesterday.

    I hope Burnley defend that deep and narrow every game. It should mean lots of long-range shots, so lots save points for Pope.

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      It's the reason Burnley gk's are good. Pope could get bonus even if they concede.

    Wilson won the penalty and still King took it. I thought there was some sort of pact in place between them that if Wilson will win he would take it? Or am I mixing this with some other team?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      King said in an interview that he's on pens.

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Wilson is crap pen taker. Missed a couple last season.

      You're mixing up with United.

    3. The Wise Owl
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      King is the penalty taker
