Salah punishes doubters as Liverpool concede for third successive match

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal

Goals: Joel Matip (£5.4m), Mohamed Salah x2 (£12.5m) | Lucas Torreira (£4.9m)

Assists: Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m), Fabinho (£5.5m) | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m)

Bonus Points: Salah x3, Fabinho x2, Matip x1

The familiar story of Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) punishing his doubters came to pass once again as Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 on Saturday.

The Egyptian was the most-sold asset ahead of Gameweek 3, losing 398,638 owners in the process, but emerged with a 15-point haul.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mané (£11.5m) who was turned to as a replacement for many who Wildcarded, looked lively against Arsenal but blanked for a three-point score.

Liverpool dominated most of the fixture, registering a total of 25 shots against the Gunners, who have historically struggled to defend well at Anfield.

Salah was at the heart of that, and looked every bit the goal threat at home as he did last season, proving that the blank at Southampton was probably a blip caused by a Super Cup hangover. His remaining 39% ownership had to wait for the fruits of his efforts, both goals coming in the second half, but they were certainly deserved.

His first goal was further evidence of an advantage he has over all other Liverpool attacking assets this season.

Mohamed Salah got the better of David Luiz for both of his goals against Arsenal

Salah was fouled in the box by David Luiz (£6.0m), who pulled his shirt, and won his side the penalty. The Egyptian then stood up to take it, firing a fantastic effort high into the top corner. As had been referenced over the summer, reduced game-time for James Milner (£5.5m) this season, should mean more of these spot-kicks for Salah in 2019/20.

Salah’s second goal came from his brilliance as he skilfully turned past Luiz on the right flank and bore down on goal, placing his effort into the far corner.

The Egyptian now has six goals in five matches against Arsenal, more than against any other Premier League side.

With those Gameweek 2 doubts now allayed once again, Salah’s prospects look good in the coming Gameweeks with Burnley (away), Newcastle (home), Chelsea (away) and Sheffield United (away) his next four opponents.

Sadio Mané was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 77th minute against Arsenal

As mentioned previously, Mané was probably unfortunate not to get any attacking returns in this one, considering how dominant Liverpool were going forward.

While he did not shoot as often as Salah, he took on the brunt of creativity in Liverpool’s team.

Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) was also unfortunate not to come away with any attacking returns against Arsenal, a side he typically does well against.

He was inches away from getting on the end of an Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) cross in the opening minute which would have given Liverpool an early lead.

Roberto Firmino was also unfortunate not to get any attacking returns against Arsenal

Later on, he went close again, this time setting himself up with skill, scooping the ball over Dani Ceballos (£5.6m) and firing a volley at goal – only for it to be blocked.

There was further frustration for most Fantasy managers in possession of Liverpool defensive assets as they went a third Premier League match in a row without a clean sheet this season.

Perhaps this was an encounter in which defensive returns were unlikely though, given the way that Arsenal’s attack had started the season.

Indeed, the Gunners asked more questions than most sides had at Anfield in recent times.

While Liverpool were the side largely in control of this encounter, whenever Arsenal broke on them they looked dangerous.

“To be honest I didn’t expect the system they played. I’m not sure they played it in pre-season, I didn’t see it. It meant we had a lot of space on the wings, switching sides, the only problem was a little bit the movements in the box to make it a bit more tricky for the defending side. They won a lot of these challenges in the air, but we won a lot of second balls for that, putting them constantly under pressure without having the outcome we wanted.” – Jurgen Klopp

Nicolas Pépé (£9.4m) was the main dangerman for Arsenal, also becoming the first man to successfully dribble past Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) in 50 Premier League games.

Nicolas Pepe and Virgil van Dijk was a pulsating contest in Liverpool’s win over Arsenal

He did this six minutes into the match, holding off the Liverpool man and running beyond him towards the opposition penalty box. Were it not for Pépé tripping over the ball, he would have been able to find Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) in space.

11 minutes into the game, Pépé caused problems once more, chasing a ball played to him over the top of the defenders, forcing Adrian (£4.5m) to sally out of goal.

His clearance went straight to Aubameyang who, from outside the box attempted a lob but screwed it just wide.

In the 30th minute, Aubameyang set up Pépé on the edge of the box, who was afforded too much space by Robertson. His curled effort went just wide.

Arsenal’s best chance of the first half came after Jordan Henderson (£5.5m) gave the ball away in the breakdown of a Liverpool set piece.

That left Pépé with only Robertson to beat in order to get one-on-one with Adrian. Unfortunately for Arsenal, the former Lille man’s shot was tame, although Liverpool’s goalkeeper still struggled to keep hold of it.

In the end, Liverpool were beaten in the 85th minute, once it looked as if they had ridden the storm and banked the clean sheet, perhaps making it all the more frustrating.

Substitute Lucas Torreira (£4.9m) was the man to get the goal for Arsenal, firing in from 12 yards after nearly tripping over a square ball from Aubameyang.

“I would have loved to have (the clean sheet), to be honest, but when I see what the boys throw into a game like this, these things can happen. It’s a quality side Arsenal, they never give up, but I didn’t see that many chances. Today we were really in charge.” – Jurgen Klopp

That g ensured blanks for a selection of Liverpool defenders as the inquest into a double-up on this area of their team goes on.

With the in-form Ashley Barnes (£6.6m) the next striker to face the Reds’ back-line, concerns about the team’s clean sheet potential are sure to continue.

“We will have another week of training and then we go to a very difficult place, to Burnley. I couldn’t have more respect for what they are doing there. I will have the opportunity to watch them tomorrow but it will still be different because Burnley at home are another level, so it will be really tricky.” – Jurgen Klopp

Alexander-Arnold was one of two Liverpool defenders to get returns in Gameweek 3

However, we should point out that that least those on Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.0m) got something out of the game.

As expected, his crossing was excellent and his involvement in set-pieces was what led to his second assist of the season. The England international now has nine of them in his last 10 matches at Anfield.

It was not surprising that he was able to chalk another one up against Arsenal, as they had conceded more chances from set-pieces than any other side in the first two Gameweeks.

That’s why van Dijk owners can probably feel somewhat unfortunate to come away with another two-pointer. He was likely the intended target of Alexander-Arnold’s 41st-minute corner but he was fouled by at least two Arsenal players as he leapt to connect with it.

Joel Matip opened the scoring for Liverpool in the first half

This was what allowed Joel Matip (£5.4m) to nod home the opening goal of the match.

“It was a very determined header as well; I don’t know how many people held on Virg in that moment, it looked like they built something around him, but Joel was there – big Joel – and made a fantastic goal. I think it was a deserved result for half-time.” – Jurgen Klopp

Meanwhile, Robertson was also unfortunate not to get something too. As already mentioned, Firmino came close to converting his early cross and it must be said that the Scottish international continues to shoot with greater regularity than he did last season.

    Is Otamendi an option...5.4m , if Stones is out for a while could actually most nailed City defender behind Laporte?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I've got him. He'll get one more game next week before the international break, but he wasn't great today. Mind you, neither was Laporte.

    2. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Stones likely fit for Brighton.

    I'm utterly ignorant, so forgive me, but why is Haller suddenly so good?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Scored as many as Kane

      It's not sudden. Look at his record in the Bundesliga. And he is a beefy lad, unlike Moany Kean.

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years

        You had to bring Moise into the discussion.

    6. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      The fixtures always turned about now.

      He missed week 2 and week 1 was City.

      He’s also a good forward in an attacking side. Next up Norwich

    7. JJeyy
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Bundesliga performances, stats so far, fixtures

    8. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      He’s an absolute unit

    9. Bird Raymond
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I quite fancy getting him in for NOR and avl, then switching to Barnes for the same fixtures.

    10. el polako
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      He's always been good.
      Had him from day 1

    11. Livinginapool - Top 100 Any…
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      All fair reasons, cheers guys. Just been checking out his stats. Tbh, I was surprised to see the assists last year too.

      I'll keep an eye on him. Probably bring him in after his haul against Norwich, then hold for his dry spell and sell him just before he hauls again.

      1. el polako
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        He is the main reason why Luka Jovic looked so good last season.

    12. Bragazeti
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Fixtures, and an easy swap for those with Wilson

    Anyone want to hear me say it?

    1. Twisted Saltergater

      1. FOO FIGHTER

      Another Liverpool connection haunting them.

      1. BrockLanders
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Haunting the European champions who are top of the league?

        1. Rainer
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Go again.

        2. Bartowski

    C) Wilson -> Pukki

    1. BrutalLogiC
      • 5 Years

    Pope (Button)
    TAA VVD Digne Zinch (Rico)
    Salah Sterling Siggy Martial (Dendonck)
    Pukki Wood (Greenwood)

    1FT, 0.2m ITB

    Have exact funds for Wood-->Barnes, should just jump on it now before a rise? That still leaves me with Siggy, whom I desperately need to get rid of. Ideas?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Siggy is a real pain in the ass

      1. thewhitepele
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Yes he is. Will surely haul once I get rid

    2. WWF
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Mount

  7. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    I feel a City defender is a must for the next 5 games but which one?

    1. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Laporte for peace of mind.

    2. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I like to stay on Zinchenko and save the 1m until he's dropped, but that's just me.

      1. OldBenKenobi
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        He created a lot of chances today too

        1. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah, one assist from those today and this question wouldn't have been asked 🙂

    3. PUP02
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Otamendi? How long is Stones out for?

    4. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Not the two I've got - Otamendi and Walker.

  8. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…

  9. what's my name
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    son + rash -> aguero + mount for a hit y or n?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Looks ok

  10. JJeyy
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Not sure which player to prioritise getting in this week?

    Cantwell or martial. Thoughts?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Martial for me

      1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Martial has a knock?

        1. BrockLanders
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Does he?? Didn't see that

    2. Ser Davos
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Something about that Cantwell lad. Caught my eye at Anfield straightaway. Only 4.5, but perhaps mid slots are the most precious... still worth a slot though methinks

  11. BrockLanders
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Evening chaps

    Desperately need Sterling in my team.

    Would you Kane & Siggy to Sterling & Haller -8???

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Same boat . But -8 too much imo

      1. BrockLanders
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Thinking short term pain for long term gain

    2. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Ouch.

      1. BrockLanders
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Hate taking hits but think Sterling is beyond essential

        1. Doosra - ☭A Noble Grape…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah. Good moves, anyway.

        2. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          Think aguero can match him

    3. BrutalLogiC
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Has Fraser actually done anything?

      1. BrutalLogiC
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Fail

    4. Lord Tachanka
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Just WC and make a couple other changes as well

      1. BrockLanders
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Want to save WC until necessary. Have no other pressing issues bar those two

  12. Freaki
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Triple/double newcastle defense on free hit, a punt that could go incredibly well or badly against bottom of the league

  13. StellaMan
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Thinking Kane to Kun

    Also Kiki needs to leave - suggestions for £4.5 replacement?

  14. PUP02
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Is it just me or has livefpl.net gone to pot this season? Best place to check live rankings?

    1. Lord Tachanka
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Just you though it was down for little bit today

  15. Dirty Harry
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Still got my WC. Don't think I need it just yet but I do need to ship Perez/Jota and now Martial with a flag.

    Which do you think is a good way forward?

    1. Perez > Mount (if ok)?
    2. Jota > Barnes
    3. Perez + Jota > McGinn + Haller(-4)
    4. Perez + Jota > Cantwell + Haller (-4)
    5. Perez + Jota > McGinn + Barnes (-4)
    6. Any 13.2m Mid/Fwd combo

    Front 8:
    Salah Sterling KDB Martial PEREZ
    Pukki JOTA (Greenwood)

        11 months, 19 days ago

        Cantwell ok to play every week? He does look pretty attacking and fluid in their attack especially for 4.6

  16. Rik Waller
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Arise Sir Ben Stokes

    1. BrutalLogiC

      they hand them out like sweeties, it's coming

      1. Rik Waller
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        SPOTY bank ya cash

    2. Colonel Shoe 肝池
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      wonder if hed have been the first knight convicted of affray?

      1. WWF
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Thought it was a prerequisite?

  17. acesingh
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Which transfer would you make?

    A) Stephens(4.5 mid) -> Cantwell
    B) Deeney (long term injured) -> Barnes
    C) both for a hit (as exact cash) and bench one of them next week

    I think Cantwell better long term as 4.6 mid, but mostly first on bench

    On Barnes I’m a bit unconvinced and he has Liverpool next... but won’t be able to get him if he rises or Deeney falls

    Also there is a chance I might WC next week so hit seems pointless

    1. BrockLanders
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Like the Cantwell transfer

    2. BrutalLogiC
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I reckon A and not at all hit

    3. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Thanks guys, on same boat..

      That’s settled then

  18. OldBenKenobi

      What would you even change other than Jota, Rico and maybe Coleman????

        Guess so

    3. StellaMan

      No leave it. Maybe look for jota replacement and then maybe downgrade double pool defence if you need to free up funds

    4. Old Gregg

      Not at all.

      I’m getting rid of Jota. Join me

        For who? I’m priced out of most viable options. Can’t see a hit paying off either

        1. Old Gregg
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 19 days ago

          True. You have Pukki. I don’t!.

          Barnes but could hold for a week

        2. pingissimus

          How about Robbo down to 4.5 to get Haller. You then get Alisson at 5.8 or even 5.7 in a couple of weeks if you double Pool defence. Fairly sure that minus 4 works.

    Haller vs Barnes. Looking at WC in second international break GW8. Haller next 2 fixtures are great but Barnes are even better from GW5. Give Jota another week and then reassess, or act now? Also have the Perez fire to put out...

    1. StellaMan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Focus on Pérez first

  22. Blanka
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Had a good start, but playing around and looking at what I can do to keep going strong. If I WC, how's this look?

    Ryan Button

    Kelly Lundstram TAA VVD Lowton

    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount, Cantwell.

    Pukki, Haller, Barnes.

    Have exact cash, so wouldn't be able to wait around too long!

    Would be 3 4 3.

    1. Carlton P
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Really like it but I still see value in Digne and I also think at 4.5 Greenwood is a great option. Once he gets his first goal everyone will be going crazy over him!

      1. Blanka
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        I like Greenwood, considered starting him next gw if Martial looks to be out. Can't see him getting loads of minutes tho in all honesty.

    2. Carlton P
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      I would consider
      Haller > Greenwood
      Kelly > Digne
      Lundy/Lowton > AMN (he’s worth it just for the home games)

    KDB or Pepe? On wc.

    1. StellaMan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      KDB

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      A

    3. mojoindojo
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      KDB is the obvious pick but Pepe might be a great differential....

  24. Carlton P
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 19 days ago

    Rashford owners...what are your thoughts?
    He could/should have hauled yesterday right
    Barnes + change looks appealing

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Yes, it was extremely close though. But now Pogba may shoot the next one. Barnes vs Pool is not best timing imo.

    2. Kip
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Haller + 1.2 mil is tempting

      But he could easily get a brace vs soton next week

  25. langey

    Your thoughts guys on Martial/Rashford to Pepe/Barnes for -4?
    Current team:
    Pope (Heaton)
    Zinchenko, Coleman, Wan-Bissaka (Lunstram, Dunk)
    Mane, Sterling, KDB, Cellabos, Martial
    Rashford, Pukki, (Wickham)

    Folks, this may have been discussed here. Which site predicts price changes the better FFFix or FPLStatistics?

    1. Forza Papac

      Fix is awful

    Anyone swaping Robbo to Emerson this week to avoid price drop then bringing him back on a WC after GW4?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Interesting tactic

      1. 1zverGGadeM
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 19 days ago

        Really not sure what to do with him. TAA is more involved so far and is because of set pieces primarly..

        Emerson looks constant recently and they finally must keep a clean sheet, thats what Lampard is asking now for sure. Chelsea have what it takes to make danger situations and the class is up there too.
        Emerson could be a fantasy gold if Chelsea build a momentum

    2. Lord Tachanka
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Neither club has a clean so far but surely Liverpool look more like getting one?

    Help is needed please

    Would you WC this team

    Leno Button

    Robertson Van Dijk Soyuncu Montoya Lundstram

    Salah Sterling Perez Martial Dendoncker

    King Barnes Wilson

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Why?

    2. Dirty Harry
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      Why? Only main issues are King/Wilson/Perez

    3. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      See what can be done with King & Perez money, maybe a -4 if needs be.

      Team doesn’t need a rushed WC, learn from previous weeks.

    4. Carlton P
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 19 days ago

      No. Perez + King > Mount + Pukki
